Great video. The attack at the end was awesome, came out of nowhere.

I was OH MY GOD FIREFLY SHOOTER, then I was oh that's kinda cool.

Looks a lot like Borderlands mixed with WoW, which isn't a bad thing. I'll have to look out for this :).

You know, I love the look of the game and the gameplay looks interesting. I just might have to keep an eye on this one.

Honestly, the shooting looks about as fun as Mass Effect's.

Which is to say it looks bad.

A lot of Tribes people seem to be interested in this game. Hell, there is even someone in their forum who is asking if there is going to be skiing.

As for the shooting, I don't think it looks like Mass Effect's. There was a bit more movement involved, and its really hard to tell much of the real gameplay because of the likely scripted scenario. The enemies did die way too easily, and some of the equipment abilities look a little strong, if that is representative of actual gameplay atm.

I'm just suprised to find they are going with F2P on this game.

My comparison to ME shooting is based on the following:

  • Enemies do not appear to react to shots other than when dying.
  • Enemies do not appear to take more damage based on where they are shot.
    • Observation based on repeated viewings, taking note of how long enemies took to die and where they were being shot
  • Enemies appear to have (hidden in Firefall) health bars which must be depleted by holding down the trigger mindlessly.

I've been replaying Mass Effect (am in the middle of a session right now actually, just alt-tabbing to make sure Guru hasn't died yet), and the combat in this video strikes me as no different than any given Geth or Rachni encounter. The larger foes are extremely reminiscent of Thresher Maws in that they do not so much as flinch when you launch massive explosions into their faces, unless that happens to be the last shot it takes to kill them.

The only improvement I can see would be the usual FPS cross-hair aiming and accuracy instead of a random-ass cone of fire system that somebody at BioWare pulled out of the toilet on a hot day.

Hmmm. I watched it once and didn't pay a whole bunch of attention, I see your points. Its been a while since I played ME, still, to me it looks different, could just be the art direction and/or the movement. Its hard to tell without playing a game, especially a shooter, what its like. As long as every encounter actually manages to feel different all should be good. (was my biggest problem with ME, it all felt the same. Especially since they used too many generic maps. I was more reminded of a PvE over the shoulder TF2, enemy AI not withstanding.

The looks look pretty neat, the gameplay was a bit 'meh'. Is there any other info besides this video?

Looks rather interesting. I love the style of the game, will keep my eye on it.

They said in their FAQ that whatever they sell in the shop will not compromise the skill-based aspects to the games so sure why not.

Is it the Guild Wars model of pay once and that's it or is it based on an item shop? That's my only worry with this, since if it's based around an item shop it could be a grind, but if it's the Guild Wars model then I'm all for it.

You may know the reasons why I was drawn to Guild Wars 2, but some of the most important ones to tell everyone are the Charr and that it's colourful and beautiful. This is colourful, which surprises me. It seems with this, Brink, and Bulletstorm we're seeing a bit of a paradigm shift away from the mud and back to what PC gaming looked like in the 90's (or maybe that's wishful thinking).

Anyway, it's colourful, not Guild Wars 2 colourful or Guild Wars 2 pretty, but it is colourful and pretty, and it has some alien plantlife there, that's a massive bonus for me because... well, I like alien worlds, I mentioned this in another thread, the music one. I love seeing things which are obviously not Earth, it fascinates me. It's like walking through the imagination of another person, and it was one of the major draws for me to the Myst Universe.

It also has this stylistic look to it that's quite interesting, it's cell-shaded and it doesn't look too gritty, all that sand does make it look a bit washed out though, but that's the only mildly negative thing I can really say about the style.

So this is interesting to me, very interesting.

I might want this.

If this has a no-grind philosophy and perhaps an alien forest area then I might want this a lot.

I wouldn't say 90s graphics, I would say stylized WoW or TF2 esque graphics. Purposefully shaded like that to give a specific feel.

Also, hate to burst your bubble, but that is Earth. Its just 2233 or something like that.

Its a cash shop, they say it won't compromise gameplay/competition. We shall see.

Could be, could be (bursted, that is)! However, those are extraterrestrial life forms they're fighting, no? It could also be extraterrestrial plant life. Haa, that plot reminds me of Teknoman. And there's a reference no one will get, but I digress.

But yes, I don't mind it being Earth, it looks interesting, and that's the main thing!!

Also, the 90's comment was one I think wasn't understood, or was misunderstood (note I didn't say graphics). It's more that 90's titles were colourful. Since then we've had the XBox, and the XBox sort of made all Western titles go very brown. It's nice to see colour returning to games.

I had never heard of this game before but they had a rather large and impressive display at PAX. I dont think the game was playable tho. I stuck around and watched one of their presentations. Basically they just screened that demo vid and had devs talking about it. Looks really good. Actually kind of reminds me of what Tabula Rasa coulda/shoulda been. Ill be keeping my eyes on this.

The reason you've never heard of it before is that the game was FIRST ANNOUNCED at PAX. I think :p.

Yup, it was announced there. People knew Red 5 (the devs) were making a MMO type game, but no one knew what.

Watched the trailer and after learning both a WoW dev/Tribes were making it I want it now.  Persistent world Shooters haven't REALLY been touched since Planetside (Which needs a sequel too...).

I like the idea of jumping into ships and roaming anywhere with my gun and a group.
