They look like a 15 year old's bedroom rather than an army base... Crap laying around everywhere...
xWarMachine on the PS2 forums formulated it perfectly:
PS1 was like playing chess, PS2 is like playing checkers.

I didn't play PS1, but one thing I didn't like about PS2 is the looks of the team models. I must have been killed by my own team over 10 times in 2h, it's very confusing, especially on dark environments.
Everybody is gray with a minor purple/blue stripe. There were times when me and an enemy just stared each other for a few seconds to figure if we should kill each other.

graphically it looks great but thats not the same thing
how does this stack up against tribes ascend?

Planetside 2 = 6 Flags amusement park.
Tribes Ascend = Coin fed horsey ride at the mall.


Lmao, I might have to try it.

I played the original Planetside back in the day tongue.gif It was quite enjoyable although I have to admit I don't think I actually played it for very long.

I'll have to check this out.

You'll really learn where you have to go once you learn more of the game.

Some beginner tips:
1) Always join a squad (press insert to auto join one), if the squad leader has unlocked a certain perk than you can spawn next to him with a drop pod.
2) When there is a red or yellow explosion like picture on the map (called hotspot) then there is a lot of action in that location. Once every 20 minute you can also choose to spawn with a drop pod on a hotspot. (Click on the hotspot and somewhere in the bottom left of the map screen there will be a "deploy now" button)
3) Get a buggy at a vehicle terminal if you plan to travel large distances.
4) On the map screen is also a "Redeploy" button. This can also be handy if you want to respawn in a different location.

And btw: tab only shows the players that are in the same area as you.

In-game VOIP has never worked for me since closed Beta. Apparently it does work for some people though, which is weird - I've read a few amusing stories about people using it to do things like broadcast the Icecream Truck song from their Sunderer, or Flight of the Valkyries from a formation of Liberators, but I've never heard any of it.

They're faking it. If you unplug your ethernet cable, you'll see that players keep moving for a little while. The graphics don't lag, but the hit boxes do.

There are always people at The Crown. If you can't play for long, and just want to quickly dive in and smash face, that's a guaranteed hot spot. It's lots of fun to defend, but you need a fairly large, organized force to assault it.

This is the biggest problem right now. The "bases" were designed by Martha Stewart with the goal of letting all your company come inside as quickly as possible.
Defensible military bases they are not. The Crown is the only exception, which is why there are constantly players fighting over it. It's the only military installation in the game.

I had that problem too for about a week when I first started playing. Stick with it, and you'll eventually become trained to quickly Identify Friend or Foe.

I need to try this...I even got a bunch of station cash...I doubt I will ever play Everquest 2 again anyway and I think EQ3 will either suck horribly or turn into vaporware.

I was dumb and purchased a whole bunch when they had a promotion going on...got station cash for half the cost plus with with an active sub you get 500 a month these days. I learned that there was very little I even wanted off the item store as a subbed player. It would be nice to actually spend that.

Should my system be able to run this? (with my 2700k @ 4.4ghz?)
post #70 of 1014
As long as that 2700 is paired with a decent GPU your system should not have many problems at all with the game even on high smile.gif
