We all live on a rotting blue ship, a rotting blue ship, a rotting blue ship!
It's been a big week for betas, with Pirate101 giving everyone a chance to jump in for a bit and MechWarrior Online dropping its NDA. There are also some upcoming test dates for both Final Fantasy XIV and The War Z, but right now neither game has an active beta. It's also the final beta weekend for End of Nations. Oh, and die-hard EverQuest raiders can sign up to get their guild into beta testing if they want a look at the next tier of content coming out with the expansion.

Die-hard roleplayers, meanwhile, are yet again denied the chance to look at the next set of buildings to talk within. Next year in the expansion.

In any event, jump on past the break for the full scorecard of what's currently in testing, both open and closed. And if you know of something that we've missed on the list, let us know in the comments so we can add it in for next week!

Open testing phase
Massively considers a game to be in open testing if it has open, public signups and plans for a server wipe before its official launch. Self-described "open beta" MMOs that have soft-launched with functioning real-money cash shops will not be listed.
