If you already have access to beta from last time do you still have access this time?
i cant play it :(
Played a couple maps today. It was enjoyable and quite a nice learning curve involved. Couldn't give a s*** about the always online required part, only concern is if they can sort out the server availability as lots of people having issues starting their maps.
Got into the beta today, so far I'm enjoying it. Took a few goes to get used to getting building density up to medium across the entire city, but managed 70,000 population by the end of an hour.
I'm definitely keen to purchase at launch if I can avoid the aussie tax.
edit: I also had a zombie outbreak :D
Damn missed this, got my key from the first round.
