What do you think the game will score, probably AA in my opinion since the game is lacking a bit in optimization.

I'll be supporting the Vanu master race

For those in the beta hows it going :P. I love how i pulled off stuff like taking down galaxys with a instant action deploy.

First review on metacritic so far

game is alright, but after playing in the same spot for 2 hours feels pointless. Massive battles didn't catch on the first time and I don't see it catching on this time...

not sure how much time im going to be spending on it. i dont have any friends that play PS2 and Halo 4 is taking most of my gaming time right now. maybe in a month or two ill get back into it. the beta was fun.

Will the game ship with Not Crashing Every 30 Minutes, or is that part of an expansion down the line?

Anyone care to help a newbie at this game. I just started to play tonight.

FREEDOM OVER OPPRESSION! I started with the New Conglomerate in the first game, and that hasn't changed for this followup. I do admit that I don't really get why the NC and the VS are fighting each other, since they both want freedom from the TR for their own reasons. I guess a bunch of higher-up NC folks decided the VS were gonna force everyone to become cyborgs or something and weren't going to have any of that. At least I don't have to worry about AA MAXes as much this time; the VS could easily shoot down Mosquitoes and Reavers in PS1 with ease because of those damn homing energy bolts you can't dodge!

I really don't have a side yet. Once I've seen more of the weapons, then I'll pick. Till then, I'll bounce around from side to side.

Try not to be on your own too much. Stay in groups or squads.

#15 Posted by wis3boi (31008 posts) -

I've been playing vanu and NC both in the beta, I enjoy each side's feel. I lean towards the NC though. Fvcking amazing game

Thats not really helping, I was dropped straight into a firefight having no idea what the hell I was supposed to and was killed instantly. I think find my way back to a base of some sort trying to spawn a troop transport but it wouldnt let me sit in the drivers seat. I dont even know the controls as the key bindings in the options menu are blank!

Unfortunately the game does a bad job at explaining anything.

join up a large squad, find their colored icons on the map and also the map has flashing hex marks and fire icons for where battles are taking place, so spawn near one and help them out. Follow the zerg rush when you cap a point because they are likely heading to a nearby base for a new battle. Use bases to spawn vehicles from the holo terminals too

Currently playing as TR but im planning on switching to Vanu after the server wipe.

#22 Posted by tagyhag (15867 posts) -
If you're a filthy filthy caveman, don't join the Vanu master race.
#23 Posted by XVision84 (13626 posts) -

Anybody in here need a Planetside 2 beta key?

#24 Posted by Cherokee_Jack (32198 posts) -
Also, fvck Vanu, I joined New Conglomerate. RON PAUL 2845
#25 Posted by GD1551 (9155 posts) -

This game is pretty horrendous. Well I should probably say it's not my type of thing, the massive scale is simply too massive for me.

Anyway I got a beta key if anyone wants that.

Works okay on my tri SLI setup; not amazing, but okay. I'm using Surround, so it's still buggy.

Oh god i can already feel the jelly.. Planetside 2>Halo 4 confirmed

#28 Posted by October_Tide (5396 posts) -

NC fo lyfe yo.

I just find their weapons more satisfying to fire, although I do enjoy flying the VS cylon raiders.

#29 Posted by Master_ShakeXXX (13361 posts) -

It's F2P isn't it? I'll try it out after I grow tired of Black Ops 2's multiplayer. As far as PC shooters go I'm looking forward to Hawken more.

#33 Posted by Maroxad (7941 posts) -

I wanna be Vanu, but my brother picks New Conglomorate. So NC for me.

It really doesn't feel like it's ready to leave beta. Horribly optimized, balance still not figured out, glitches, etc. Also, TR masterrace. Everybody else sucks big time.

I've been playing as the Terran Republic in the beta, they have the coolest and most evil music

Damn pesky Vanu and their lasers, how can you people support their treachery.

#43 Posted by KungfuKitten (20749 posts) -

Vanu have teh awesome weapons :P

seanmcloughlin
But their suits are silly.
#44 Posted by KungfuKitten (20749 posts) -

Imo Republic has nicest look, Vanu nicest background/direction, and the rebels have rock music. Can't pick.

I don't know if I'll bother too much with this game.

I've played a little bit, and chya it just wasn't really what I wanted out of a multiplayer shooter.

JUST CUM IN MY MOUTH.

MY LOVE.

MY THROAT IS READY! [/spoiler]

Anyways the game is awesome. It's easily battlefield on lsd and steroids. The other day I was part of a massive caravan of Vanu tanks, troop transports and ATV's that just violated a bunch of TR bases and a biolab. It's so fvcking epic.

I'm finding it hard to break into this game.
