Firefall is a surprisingly fun mix of a MMO and arena shooter. Props to them for taking on a ambitious idea as they have!

Dude, I just realized that Wil Wheaton is the same dude who played Wesley Crusher is Star Trek TNG. I don't know why it didn't click before. Maybe it would've if Crusher had a beard.

You ARE an idiot.

 

I bet when your program doesn't respond and asks you to send a report to Microsoft, you actually send a report. Ahah.

 @starduke He also plays Fawkes on The Guild, TNG was a fun show, when he started getting more screen time he evolved pretty quick...and his character was pretty cool.
