Indeedy, locational damage means so much more when you can see the effects

Question:
Will the Terran Republic MAX anchor animation be making a comeback?
Answer:
lock down mode is in full effect
I'm still not sure if that's T-Ray's way of saying "yes", "yes it'll be available for all MAXes", or "I can't say anything yet"

I'm hoping the for the first

I would love to see what the fans can do. Maybe that's something we could talk about. Have a fan created video contest. I think that would be awesome. (during beta)

on another note, I am not feeling the love from you guys, I've only got 267 followers on Twitter. Come guys help me out here i'm trying to get the word out about how awesome this game is going to be

I'm waiting on some VS themed footage to go along with the VS themed track I made. Maybe some night time shots of lashers popping off, and A nice Dyson fly-by.

I can't wait for a video that does PS justice. I hate having to go, "but it's going to be awesome, trust me" when I tell people about it.

Also: T-Ray. Just ignore those TR and NC scumbags. We all know that technology will prevail. One day, we VS will own not just auraxis, but freed the the universe from TR and NC. And on that day, mankind will finally realize its full potential. Technology equals might, bitches!
Amen brother amen

hmm missed him talking. Was going to ask if he saw this Liberator thread. I and a few other people had art suggestions. (Really liked someone's suggestion of bombs on the wings).
