I did have a soft spot for APB and was keeping half an eye on the APB Reloaded relaunch, but it was only seeing this video in Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s Sunday Papers that really inspired me to go and grab the open beta. There’s a transfer process for getting your old characters from the original launch (only the customisation, not the progress) that seemed to work fine, and the game seems pretty much as I remember, running, jumping, standing still, all that stuff.
Mind you, when I clicked on a window in the launcher promising a method to “earn free G1 credits”, I did have to wonder slightly at exactly what target audience they’re going for now…
(The prosaic answer of course is “a target audience personalised according to evil tracking cookies, and that’s what happens when you cherry pick the most inappropriate offers after your wife’s been browsing for a while”, but that’s not nearly as funny)
I have to say I was quite disappointed that the picture in your post didn’t include the original links. How will I ever know if I could, indeed, be Justin Beiber’s ideal girl?
Being able to wet the bed seems to be a primary indicator.
Nice. I’m so relieved that I’m still in the running.
