Firefall - How can something this good be free?

Postby Asmodai » Fri Sep 10, 2010 6:52 am

How? That just seems impossible

Seriously, this is setting off all this-cant-be-true alarms... I'm expecting a monthly fee news bulletin 2 months before this games release

That game looks fantastic, and the fact that it has Tribes written all over it just makes me want it more. It looks like a Borderlands MMO almost.

Forgive the necro'n but I just got back into the game after they redesigned a lot of stuff and am greatly enjoying it. I also wanted to let people know I have 5 beta keys available for those that want it, although the game itself is going into Open Beta very soon.

They have been sent. Have fun. It's definitely one of the more interesting MMOs I've played.

I've been in the closed beta for a while now (completely forgot about this thread) and my 'this-cant-be-true' alarm was right. It's not that good. It's currently a boring grind fest with little to no progression, new frames or weapons dont feel new or fresh and currently the only thing you can do in the game is mindlessly thump for materials, which is not as fun as the trailer makes it look.

Honestly, I'd recommend getting Warframe instead of this... It's way, way, WAY more fun.

Have you played it since the redesign in the frames and progression system?

Man, they redesigned the leveling system and the class system entirely. Check it out again to see if you havent.

It's fun and all, but it just feels to slow for what I'm used to. Can't get INTO it.. Fallout all fucking over again.

Yeah, I didn't really like the redesign that much, it feels so much slower to progress now.

The game is just slow, boring and the shooting just doesnt feel right. I highly doubt its going to get any better.

Haha, I signed up for that thing a long time ago, and forgot about it. Guess I was right to ignore it.
One time when I was high, I thought I was in an ambulance dying. Turns out I was just eating sherbert.
