We've been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to sink our teeth into Black Desert Online, an MMORPG that's been lauded for its hugely powerful character customization tools. That praise is well-earned: The game's suite of face-molding and body sculpting options is a beautiful thing to behold. Unless, of course, those potent sliders are in the clutches of the Monster Factory, where they're less likely to create heroes of legend and more likely to create half-melted versions of your favorite Simpsons characters.

You can watch the results of our vile experimentations in Black Desert Online above. We also discover some of the genuinely cool ideas Black Desert Online is bringing to the MMO genre, aside from allowing you to create genuinely upsetting human beings. A second beta phase is upcoming — you can sign-up here if you want to take a stab.
