What the fuck....

They actually talking about transportvehicles just because the dude happened to spawn 25 sec run from the gunfight?

Sadly, i dont like alot of what i see from e3.
Spawn in full gear, jump pad and quick elevators, 3+ killstreak rewards (seriously!!?? 3 kills and you start rewarding ppl!?)

Capturing points is too simple/quick. Would have been alot better if a hacking tool was required (sacrificing sidearm) and took a long time.
That would mean defending a point is killing the enemy before they take it, not killing them and taking it back.

I can imagine the hack times will be severely increased, because it would have been boring for people to sit there for 5 minutes capturing a base, and that would have appeared boring to people, but in Beta i hope its longer then 5 seconds, which they have always said that capturing will be slow.

Gamespots youtube channel added some of the direct footage, and the sounds for this game just make it all good.

As for the gameplay aspect I can't make a judement because all I have is footage to look at. Also its been stated this is pre-beta and lots of stuff is not representative of the final vision.

The sounds are kind of awful. He got killed by a schythe and all you hear is a thud. The knife makes an odd thwak noise. The Bolt driver (50 cal) sounds like a dart gun. Gauss and pulsar just sound like wet noodles.

Maybe BF3 spoiled me and it is alpha, but I'm not impressed.

Thinking the same thing. Hopefully it gets very polished up before open beta.

Oh, and the talking voices are either terrible or just alright.

"Oh, the vanu have taken C... let's get it back..."
"A is being loss... fall back to A... <-- guy is about to fall asleep

I really had a hard time distinguishing what was a voice over and what was VOip. It seemed like they had people on VOIP instructing people what to do, but sometimes the voice sounded so official it was hard to tell.


VS voice over sounded really condescending. Sometimes when you die: "STOP LOSING, YOU'RE BETTER THAN THAT!!"

NC sounded like he was about to hang himself in depression at any moment.

I didn't hear TR's voice over guy at all. Maybe I missed it.

It's a demo. They're going to do a lot of things for the demo to facilitate combat for short play sessions that you won't have in a real planetside 2 battle. Gotta take what we see here with a grain of salt. They're trying to simulate hundreds of players battling across a continent with only a few dozen. Like unlimited resources...certainly they won't have that in the final game, but adding the resource metagame into a 15 minute play session is a bit overwhelming.

Plus you have the game filled with people that have never played PS1 nor will they understand the nuances like max can't drive tanks.

Looked like they succeeded quite well from the footage I saw. Gotta remember that a demo isn't the real game. It's a publicity piece so don't get too worked up about stuff we see there that may have been put in just to make the demo more fun and compelling for new players.

The only OSOK was via headshots on LA in the vid. The body shot resulted in an assist.

And were there even medkits in the demo???

I agree with the point you were making; though I saw guys being short on resources (not being able to spawn a vehicle) a number of times...?

Edit:

Otherwise yeah the demo looked awesome considering it was just office balance/tweaking.
