So you get back from a job or something and make a smoothie only to turn around and see this freaky monster staring right at you. What do you do?

The Secret World is one of the games I have been dying to join since I started reading about it last year. Funcom is nearing to release an MMO unlike any other in that it is set in modern times where every conspiracy has truth and monsters lurk in the fabric of our world.
Three factions including Dragon, Illumanti and Templars all have different approaches to how they deal with the conspiracies and interface with society. Of course I signed up as a Dragon when I joined the games over 500k wait list.
The game reminds me of a Role Playing Game I used to love playing as a kid called Dark Conspiracy. This is a game I used to play with my brother mostly and is very much what The Secret World reminds me of.
An RPG/MMO set in modern times, but in The Secret World there are over 500 skill selections and any character can master any number of skills. You don’t get stuck in one class or another and can dynamically equip your character quest by quest if you need to.
The game also boasts some of the strongest storylines, and you can kill hours just investigating conspiracies and tracking down information, putting clues together. Of course there are zombie fests and monster hunts and you can join in the political atmosphere as well.
Will The Secret World live up to all the hype? This game has been in development for a few years now and is supposed to hit beta very soon with full release in April 2012.
Maybe you will be a Templar?
