I can't even imagine how much money they've spent developing this game, played the PvE for a little bit and then uninstalled.

Everyone complains that there's nothing but recycled modern military shooters but I think they went off the deep end in terms of the design for this game.

They should make PvE defend and destroy classic from Tribes, I loved playing that mode.

They seem to really be underusing their talent, or maybe they're all just bought into the whole PvE killing bugs crap.

I envisioned FireFall as an action RPG Tribes-inspired FPS shooter with their focus on world pvp (similar to Planetside) and areas for pure PvE if you wanted, but also old-school pvp match modes that Tribes had for tourneys/esports.

It's everything but that unfortunately., and I don't see how it can pull enough gamers to play their bugkill for very long.

It never 'started' as a wow clone, that's just insane ignorance cutter.

I still have high hopes for Firefall. I would never 'grind' it's current PvE mode, but I dislike most FPS PvE to begin with and repeatedly killing bugs gets old super fast.

But their PvP is what I've always envisioned them as focusing on, at least because that's what Scott did with his old Tribes IP and he did it wonderfully at the time.

I hope they focus on PvP, not just matches but real world for the same type of rewards. I just can't see their current PvE holding too many for too long.

I'll get this if there isn't anything else out good, which is doubtful there won't be. Just had way too much of PM's arrogance. So it is going to have to be phenomenal to get my $.

I didn't write the following quote, but it's pretty much spot on and a major reason why I will always support Pete M's efforts (at least on the PC):
Yes: letís not give the industry veteran, one of the very few who survived the 90s and 00s, and is still willing to try to fucking innovate instead of, for example, turn one of the most popular casual tower defense games ever into a F2P cover based shooter because of marketing trends.

I donít even care about the quality of Peteís games anymore. The fact that heís still out there trying his best helps keep me from murdering game publishing executives. Godus is already better than this yearís Call of Duty because this yearís CoD is indistinguishable from last yearís CoD. And now this yearís PvZ is indistinguishable from CoD. But Peter is out there and thatís why EAís execs remain unmurdered for the time being.

I can understand why they skip the PC at launch.

To "encourage" people to buy the console version first, and the pc version again later.


Gee didn't I just say that? lol

There's already been a since pulled listing for a PC sku in France. I think GTA 5 coming to PC is kinda a no brainer. Shame Rockstar isn't capable of putting out PC ports at the same time as the console versions, like every other developer in fucking existence.

For a game like GTA which is always better on a PC, it's a sales strategy -- they know many people will buy it on a console, then on a PC.

That's because a good portion of folks can't find jobs -- not because of any company turnaround.

It's terribad out there for a ton of people despite the media spin spin spin. Ask your recent graduates, your neighbors, etc -- get out once in while, turn off the spin, and find out for yourself.

Couldn't disagree more eR, game is shaping up to be damn fine for only 40% completion.

There's issues that need ironed out, the land building feels off sometimes (till you get used to the double clicking), the clickfest of follower bubbles gets annoying, etc. they need a sandbox mode as well so we can test the bigger stuff sooner.

But the basic premise is certainly the type of games Pete M fans expect.

Lets fix that one statement:

PlanetSide 2 on PS4 "the same as on PC except terrible FPS controls with maxed out settings due to our 30FPS cap." say Sony.

I'll be glad to compare my "maxed" Planetside 2 settings with the PS4's, and I don't run less than 80FPS -- and only if I feel like looking at pretty shit.

Otherwise 99.9% of the time I turn all the stupid bling off (like I do with every competitive game) and PWNJOOFACE with a 144hz refresh and frame lock that most gamers don't know about, don't know how to achieve if they did, and have no idea of its 'overpowered' significance.

But hey, have fun (I'm sure the game will be on the PS4). Just don't think you can compare to a PC. Ever.

I think most people like myself are expecting Nintendo to do something major come the holiday for the Wii U -- that really is their only chance they've had since blowing their lame launch.

Doesn't matter to me, its an easy pass on xbone and ps4 since consoles are only played casually in my home and we get plenty of that with what we have.

It's just not bluesy.

Plus I prefer the days of blue and voodooextreme when there wasn't a massive social mess and a constant reminder of it.

Just gonna chime in here again I'm *extremely* hopeful for Godus.

My first true multiplayer experience was Populous in 1991. We ran a null modem cable to our Amiga's through the windows of our Air Force dorms and played so much we ached.

So yes I'm biased -- I always held out hope for good ole Pete.

Having looked at their goals per dollar, I think they can pull it off easily. They aren't offering everything under the sun for a few bucks -- 500k gets you an additional ship, a million for better cutscenes, etc.

Those kind of realistic goals give people confidence that they won't be wasting their money. Time will tell...

Between steam sales and indie bundles providing steam keys, I get titles ridiculously cheap with the benefit of only ONE digital distro app.

Only other place I'll buy is direct download (like amazon or GoG) so I don't have to run more apps... haven't bothered with physical media for umpteen years.

Played it for 15 minutes. 4 of those minutes were waiting in the lobby timeout to count down, 11 of them were run-of-the-mill team-based shooter gameplay that brings nothing at all to the table. Uninstalled.
