Of course, EA's registration for the beta was nothing short of jumping through a burning hoop. I was surprised then that when the beta started, I wasn't asked to join. I freaked out the day I finally got my RA3 beta key in the beginning of September (cue music). Of course, there was more burning hoop circus jumping in store for me, but it was all worth it. Those who haven't heard much about it, or are checking out all the screenshots wondering if EA is just phoning it in, I can tell you first-hand: it's everything and more."
