The official YouTube Page has added a new video for GamesCom, PlanetSide 2 Take the Power!

PC Games N also posted a new article talking about PlanetSide 2, likely the first of many articles coming up this week.

I played for at least an hour, defending a tower from waves of foes. It brought back great, great memories. By the end of it, I wasn't just convinced that Planetside 2 was going to work. I was absolutely entranced. The basic mechanics are essentially the same as those of the first game. You join a squad, you can spawn on that squad via a drop-pod falling out of the sky. You can spot targets by pressing the Q button. You shoot guns by pressing the... You know all of this stuff already. It just works.

Check out the full article here.

Re: Gamescom Trailer and PCGN Article

almost forgot to say:

arclegger did a barrel roll with a galaxy!!!
it IS possible!
he clegged it, but only because he was flying a little too low and the demo limits the area where you can fly. i couldn´t fly anything without running into the out of bounds warning and exploding. (it gives you 10 seconds to return, and this is never enough when you are not used to the aircraft controls.

also, arclegger said, anything is possible for planetside 2 down the road...
... he said this when i told him that i am always waiting for the biolab to stand up and slowly walk away with all those soldiers on board. they are planning on trying anything if enough players demand it
the forgelight engine seems to be really flexible and allows a lot of fantastic stuff! can´t wait to see how the game developes into something even more epic!

You stow that shit, citizen.

Initial reactions to the trailer: The sight of the jetpack horde pouring over the walls was epic.

I thought the voice-over was fine. Same voice actor that did the Terran segment for the E3 video, and he has a fine whiskey-&-cigarettes thing going on.

SIZE!! ALWAYS!!! MATTERS!!11!! GET IT???!?? (/pelvic thrust) still makes me cringe.

The *real* test is: Do I want to watch it again? and then a third time? for the enjoyment of it, and to see what I can pick up that I missed seeing the time(s) before? Yes. I do and I am. Great success!

Anyone eles has an issue with the saying "Take the power"? To me it sounds like something from a bad translation.

The shot of all the air and flak at night (@ around 0:50) is amazing! This was a great vid. I hope they keep this stuff coming with more getting into beta to show off those HUGE battles.

To me it sounds like they're trying to transition from SIZE! ALWAYS! MATTERS! and just kind of flubbing things up. The same subject matter doesn't need two disparate titles/mottos/mission statements. That's confusing and misleading for the target audience.

And the appeal to register for beta doesn't come until the very end. It would have been better if Mister Whiskey-Cigar Voice could have told us "Auraxis needs YOU! Sign up NOW! And join the BIGGEST CLUSTER FUCK BATTLE EVAR!" Or, you know. Something.

As a pitch for entering the beta it was muted. As a narrative it was muddled. As an advert for the game it was a hellacious success, and that's what will ultimately pull new people in.

I fail to see how their CGI trailer was any worse then any other game's CGI trailer -_- If someone wants to educate me why that was bad, please send me a private message. Every CGI trailer shows unrealistic gameplay and over-the-top action, Ps2's was no different...

Anyway, this video was pretty fun. Just a small promotional video, I'm sure. I would REALLY like to see 3 extensive trailers about each of the factions, clearly demonstrating their viewpoint on the war and what they fight for. Would be cool if the narration acknowledged the negatives of their faction and said to people why they fight anyway. Easiest example, TR. They fight for stability and security, and know they are oppressive with it, but they do it because they want their people to be safe.

But anyway, still fun to see some new videos out every now and then.

The voice over is very similar to Jon St. John.

I wonder if it actually is him.

Aha... well, the CGI trailer was not supposed to actually show the game. You can't really argue its aesthetical and dramaturgical quality. It was over the top and made many people excited for the game.

For showing of what to expect from the game you'll certainly need these ingame trailers. But they're not that good regarding other games' trailers.
