You can fly like Tribes, and it has large open battlefields, they even have a speed booster for ground travel, a la skiing..

gonna try it out

Looks interesting.

Gryphon 07-28-2009 06:26 PM

I installed it, it isn't too bad.

Need to play it some more to get the hang of it. It is console playble, so it has target assist ect.

Cerberus 07-28-2009 08:19 PM

It doesn't come out until September 1st, how did you install it?

Gryphon 07-29-2009 03:51 PM

Went to http://www.joinsection8.com/ which directed me to fileplanet for the beta.

OMG. I went to the site and watched the trailer movie, and it DOES look a lot like tribes. Blended with Crysis and Starship Troopers or something.

I think I want it now. Give 'em good feedback, Gryph, and make it a winner. :)

damnit.. looks like i missed the beta

Cerberus 07-30-2009 08:12 PM

Looks like i got the beta today, downloading now.

It is pretty fun actually. The jet pack is pretty good, it is a lot like Tribes.

Cerberus 08-01-2009 07:48 PM

I do like it a lot. Can't figure out how to do third person view though. If it doesn't have third person, that would be my only complaint so far.

Gryphon 08-02-2009 02:13 PM

I don't think it does 3rd person view. Keep in mind it is optimized for PC and console so it is is limited to console controls, they usually don't put in those extras.

Cerberus 08-07-2009 11:58 PM

you know, if consoles could just get a damn keyboard and mouse and stop ******* around, they would be fun.

I don't mind consoles, and console style gaming. I just wish if they were going to publish games for the PC they'd take advantage of PC capabilities rather than just doing a minimal port. If I wanted to use a controller at my PC I'd be using a console and sitting on the couch. :)
