    Lord of the Rings Online for those wondering. Screenshots are looking pretty good, from what I've seen posted.

    It looks nice, but it has monthly fees, and i bet it wont have a large community as WOW or guildwars...

    i have a feeling its gonna be another flop like RF Online

    Yeah, it's going to be a MMO. I don't know, Tolkien has a HUGE following. I mean, practically everybody who plays WoW or EQ2 or whatever, likes the LotR. And if I had to "imagine" what the closed beta is like, I'd "imagine" that it's similar to a blending of WoW and EQ2, but with it's own style and LotR storyline.

    I played it as well, wasn't that great. Nothing I'd pay for anyway.

    running an online game is gonna cost you money (servers, maintenance, bandwidth, in-game support). if you have money you can provide a better quality service to gamers.

    considering how many hours you are going to play a good online game it is worth the money imo

    I agree - $15/month is nothing so long as you are entertained.
