Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar enters alpha phase

Busting out their big bad Alpha muscles, Turbine has powered The Lord of the Rings: Shadows of Angmar into the alpha phase of development.  Already, over 125,000 players are said to have registered to get in on the upcoming beta program, so I'm sure alpha news will make quite a lot of hearts go pitter-patter.  Speaking of the beta, if you haven't yet signed up, here's where you'd do it. 

 I honestly don't have anything else to say about this at the moment... maybe I'll go sign up for beta, too.  We can all go have a big signup party on their site.  Par-tay.
