For me it seems a bit on the slow side. I prefer the Tribes:Ascend kind of stuff of bouncing around and jetpacks.

Yeah, having given more than 100 hours in Tribes Ascend and around 80 in Planetside I really can't understand how people compare them and say that one is best than the other. They are 2 completely different games I will say four things though:

1. In Tribes Ascend I feel less the need to buy gear than in Planetside and by that I mean that I don't feel ripped of by Tribes Ascend's prices.

2. In Tribes Ascend being good is sooooo hard that you can't even imagine. It's really really had to be good at that game and I love games that involve so much skill to be had and earned because it makes kills really rewarding.

3. In Tribes I saw tactics being used not like Planetside where even though I'm in a decent outfit (everyday active with good leaders, 900+ members on Miller) I don't really see any tactics being used like in Tribes. In Tribes if you watch clan matches you will s**t your pants by how much thought goes into every move and how skilful everyone needs to be.

4. In the end though i stopped playing Tribes Ascend and I play Planetside because I like Planetside way more than Tribes. I don't know it's just really refreshing.

Tribes is awesome, and until PS2 came out, was the only F2P i have ever really enjoyed playing. I just like PS2 now because of the large scale of it vs the relatively small size of Tribes (map and player count) Although Tribes wins on the balance issue with the player numbers being evenly matched, not even including the 2 sides being the same.

Well Planetside 2 has its strong points - I particularly like the vechiles which can be occupied by multiple people, for example, but I'm not really fond of "iron sights" type of shooters, where you run slooooow and jump like you have a 30kg backpack straped on. Fortunately I have not seen mech's from the vechiles side so far wink.gif

At start with the starter items, however, the classes feel kind of gimped and most people seem to be just zerging at first impression. I quite liked the planetside 1 where I liked to play either engineer or MAX depending on the situation. Especially engineer seems a bit pointless without having ability to set mines or turrets - I presume such upgrades can be bought from the store.

From the faster paced shooters with vechiles I quite liked Unreal 3 although unfortunately it seemed that the number of players tended to be a bit too small to take properly advantage of some of the vechiles that benefit from larger number of persons inside.

Heh, Sprinting may not be fast, but you can do it forever. As for the backpacks...

Pffft - plastic wink.gif

In a more serious note, however, any real human with such amount of steel attached to their body would not be going anywhere on their own. If this is made of some lighter version of plastic/ceramic composite then 30 kg for that kind of armor would be quite reasonable estimate in my opinion. Then again Planetside 2 is not exactly a "realistic shooter" either fortunately - I was dropping like 10 m in heavy armor, able to move afterwards a little while and someone pumped a pistol clip into me from behind shortly after making the drop and I was able to turn and fight back for a little while (until he finished reloading and proved to be a bit more accurate than I was with my peashooter).

Anyway - its not a bad game - its just that my preference for FPS is a bit bouncier (i.e., I can jump 3 - 4 m in the air) and preferably with an ability to set mines or build some kind of auxiliary gadgets like turrets or alarm systems. That does not mean that I would not play planetside 2 sproadically every now and then - at least until DUST 514 makes it to a PC - if it ever does.

In a more serious note, however, any real human with such amount of steel attached to their body would not be going anywhere on their own. If this is made of some lighter version of plastic/ceramic composite then 30 kg for that kind of armor would be quite reasonable estimate in my opinion. Then again Planetside 2 is not exactly a "realistic shooter" either fortunately - I was dropping like 10 m in heavy armor, able to move afterwards a little while and someone pumped a pistol clip into me from behind shortly after making the drop and I was able to turn and fight back for a little while (until he finished reloading and proved to be a bit more accurate than I was with my peashooter).
Anyway - its not a bad game - its just that my preference for FPS is a bit bouncier (i.e., I can jump 3 - 4 m in the air) and preferably with an ability to set mines or build some kind of auxiliary gadgets like turrets or alarm systems. That does not mean that I would not play planetside 2 sproadically every now and then - at least until DUST 514 makes it to a PC - if it ever does.
also take in consideration that it isn't earth we are fighting on.. different gravity pull and whatnot smile.gif

post #708 of 1014
Been playing PS2 more than BF3 these days.. Love this game! But.. there is one issue I would like to get fixed, if possible. I've been taking to the skies more and more but I am limited to using the mouse/KB to do so. I've tried to use my joystick (Microsoft Sidewinder Precision Pro) and my 360 gamepad, but both will make PS2 CTD, right after pressing "PLAY" from the PS2 launchpad. I cannot have ANY joystick/gamepads plugged into the USB ports when starting Planetside 2. I would really love to be able to use my joystick with PS2.. rolleyes.gif I've tried to find some info on other PS2 forums with no luck.. but there are plenty of people out there having the same issue..

Anyone here know a workaround to get the joystick and/or gamepad to work with PS2?

Light Assault gets jumpjets that are good for 10-15m jumps, Engineers begin with the ability to deploy turrets (not not PS1 style AI-fired auto-turrets), Engineers and Infiltrators can deploy various kinds of mines by spending XP on certifying them (can't be purchased with $), and Infiltrators begin with the ability to deploy motion sensors that make all nearby opponents show up on the minimap of nearby allies.

If you ever want to get your Galaxy on, roll a VS on Mattherson and join Azure Twilight. We currently have about 150 people online and in TeamSpeak during primetime. Here's a quick training video that will tell you everything you need to know to get started running ops with us:

I plugged in my Saitek flight stick and the game loaded OK. Using it was just a matter of manually configuring the keybindings. I found that aircraft roll too fast and yaw too slow, and unplugged the flight stick after trying it out for an hour. Kb&m gives you better control with the current flight physics (which I hope are changed someday to be more in line with other flight sims).
