AlphaBeta Soup 12/21: Year End Edition

Welcome to the last soup of the year! No, it isn’t because the world is ending. I’ll be taking the rest of the year off. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t things coming up. In the distant future we will be getting Asian MMO The Aurora World coming to North America. But that is a while off. If you’re looking for something to keep you occupied until then we have giveaways for City of Steam and LinkRealms. Plus several betas beginning soon. Upcoming Scifi MMO Defiance has also started sign ups for closed beta which is due to begin next month. I hope you all have a productive and fun end of the year. See you in 2013!

As ever any new additions are highlighted below in orange.
