I'm just happy to see the game directly-recorded, rather than a video camera pointing at a screen :-)

Really nice, good to see it in crisp quality

One thing I thought was a shame though was people playing 'im shot' animations when blasted point range by a tank. Would be cool if they went flying or blew apart.

I mean should you be able to be revived from a tank shell to the face?

I don't have any problems with being resurrected even after being shot by a tank. I mean, you probably wouldnt be resurrected any more by being shot to the face by a rifle.

Cheers for the Heads up OP.

Nice to see a good cross section of people are looking forward to it and not utterly slamming it (as GT users often want to do). Fingers Crossed we see a good amount of people getting excited for it.

Fair enough as ressing is obviously a gameplay mechanic and thus there shouldn't be exceptions. I just wish there was a way to ragdoll the player and still have him revivable - one thing that impressed me with ut3 was the way your player could get up convincingly however he had fallen and ragdolled.

Pre-done death animations just seems too dated for this kind of game.

Yeah and I do agree. I think BF3 combines pre-animated deaths and ragdolls pretty nicely? Like it starts off with an obviously animated thing (depending how you died) and continues nearly seamlessly into a ragdoll.

However, I think one of the problems with ragdolls in PS kinda game is the resources it takes. If characters are revivable, everyone needs to see the ragdoll in the same place. This pretty much means that instead of having client do the ragdoll calculations, the server pretty much has to keep on track with it. And I dont think they can afford any extra strain on the server with the scale they are going for to be honest. If characters werent resurrectable, it wouldnt matter that the client calculated the ragdoll. Basically, the thing here is that two different clients can and will see the corpse in different places. In case of APB it makes no difference cos the body will stay dead, but in PS you will need to actually know where the server thinks the body is so you can ress them. I'm no tech sawwy or coder, but I'm pretty sure ensuring that the corpse is in the same place for everyone with ragdolls strains the server.

Also yeah, like someone said, I think the only non-NC first person view we've seen was the TR standing on top of a mountain ledge with a repeater, looking down to a base. While I'm NC to the bone, but I'd still like to see how fe. Pulsar and Cycler look from the users PoV.

I think Higby is a really good person to have do these PR thingies. That man could probably sell me a bag of dog shit and make me think I actually want it

Hvar is a familiar basename, but is Zurvan in Planetside?

Nice find. It's good to see a direct capture.

Aye - up until now I pictured the PS2 sundy as being more unstoppable momentum than speedy buggy style. Interesting.
