The hype


After seeing the 3 recent video's (Totalbiscuit's, Higby's and Hamma's)

I can now say my hype for this game gained even higher levels than previously, in 3 video's it has shown more of PS2 than any other media and I have to say it looks AMAZING. The graphics alone in the game look better than a lot of really high budget games which I have to say coming from a F2P game is amazing work.

All 3 video's have also had very nice footage and decent commentary which has shown PS2 in such a different light to random video's before and even a different light from the E3 video's (Yes I have seen them all O.o).

For me, my interest is now through the roof I really cannot wait. I'm even more impatient for the game than I was before xD.

Anyway, pointless post but I thought I'd express how I felt and if anyone feels the same or whatever post your thoughts on the video's




Also, concerning the trailer. SoE should make a Planetside film!!!!!

The hype for this game is unbearable, luckily I'm off to the west coast (Sweden) in just a few days to visit my girlfriend, hopefully that will take my mind off Planetside.

What's worse is that you american guys can look forward to getting in the beta in maybe 2-3 weeks, whoever you might be, vet or not. But we here in Europe haven't even had the tech test start and no pony knows when it will either. That's what's making it so unbearable.

Hoping it's two weeks I need to spend my remaining vacation time before August 10th. I just want that to be my lucky week.

What's even worse is that my vacation ends on August 9th and beta might've just started by then if we're lucky!
I'm so jealous of you guys! (Plus you don't have to worry about Pro7)

Air pads.

Why do air pads not have a walkway? I don't get it.

Hopefully squad spawning is not going to be on any memeber of your squad. It sucked for BF3, and I don't see it being any better here.

Well I believe you CAN spawn on any member of your squad IF the squadmate has the cert to allow it. If you do have the option to squad spawn, you fly down in a drop pod that takes a few seconds to hit the ground.

Also, once you die, you cannot spawn on your squad again until a timer runs out (we do not know exactly how long the timer will be though, as it is being tweaked in Beta)

It seems rather difficult to land any of the aircraft properly. I hope they make it a tad more user friendly so you don't have to take so long to hover down so so so slowly. I get not dive bombing in and pulling off some crazy stunt landing but this just seems a bit too sensitive.

Re: The hype


I think we learned a lot of new stuff today. Off the top of my head:

1) Some details on the mission system. Such as requesting galaxy pickup, which can be performed by anybody on the map.

2) First time I saw personal and squad waypoints on the map and in-game

3) Infantry weapon selection looks bigger than before. Infantry can wield heavy cycler (same as on one MAX arm), and burster (same one as MAX). Pounder is an option for infantry (yeah!)

4) Numbers were given for the number of infantry and vehicle weapons available at launch per empire. It was a lot. This isn't exact but something like 70 infantry and 40 vehicle weapons per empire.

No doubt more stuff that I'm not remembering now.

Yeah, I also thought the landing pads were strange. I liked the catwalks with landing pads in Planetside 1. There just does not seem to be a lot of places to land without any pads that aren't dedicated to spawning vehicles.

Just adding fuel to the hype fire here.
