It's fun so far, but then most MMO's are at first. It's very action based, combos, dodging, etc, although not quite to the level of a non MMO. I don't really know what I'm doing, but there are enough quests around to keep me busy.

As blasphemous as this might be, I'm fast approaching a point where I'd rather play a game on a console. I think I'm just tired of installs and overheats and bears, oh my.

On, insert disc, play. Off when done.

I hate console controllers... If it has an analog stick or motion sensor, I hate it. I'm old school (translation: a dinosaur).

Last time I made a character, the only choice was PvP or PvE. I was on the PvE. I just went to check, and there's a 9 gig update, so I won't be able to tell you till next week.

I'm in LA till wed. You kids behave.

I was told this is being given away for free right now on the PlayStation Network, and free to play as well. Can anyone confirm this? I won't be able to until tonight.

Did they wind up making this for the PC? If so, I'm considering giving it a go. I've been wandering around a lot of MMOs that I used to play in the last 6 or 7 months. I want something new, but I don't want to wait for SWTOR (a guy at my work says the game sucks ass from the beta).

And it's apparently illegal to alt-tab out of the game. I kill the game every time.

I am still trying stuff out, but I think this one is too much of a console game for me, even though I am on the PC.

I get disconnected more often than I stay connected. I've barely been able to play at all, which is frustrating. Free or not, I don't have the patience for that, so I probably won't be on much, if at all.

There are several problems with the PC version that I have seen:

1.) Alt-Tabbing = game crash
2.) During Character creation, I've been shat back to the beginning intro movie on 3 seperate occasions
3.) No sub-titles... that I can find at least
4.) Audio tracks during cutscenes not playing and #3
5.) Somewhat vague mission goals. I don't really care to be led by the nose, but saying something like "inject students with parasite" and you have no temporary power or item in the inventory to do it makes it pretty difficult to realize you need to beat them up and then 'use' them.
6.)Targeting is based on Tab key and you can't just Tab something in your reticle... this leads to me targeting things to the sides when I really want to be targeting the one in front of me. Or end up targeting the liftable objects in the environment.

Control issues don't surprise me, they designed it entirely with a console / gamepad setup in mind.

Agree with all. Number 6 is the most annoying IMO. I wish I could use my mouse to target sometimes, but I can't figure out how to unlock the mouse look. The chat box has a button in the upper right of it, but I can't click it to see what it is supposed to do. Silly things like that.

I just realized what annoys me the most about this game. It's an MMO that doesn't let you strafe or back up without actually being in the process of attacking a targeted mob. When I try to block something, I have to be facing it to effectively block, but I'm NEVER facing the correct direction because I'm jockeying for a better position, so it makes me turn away.
