Has anyone looked at this game?

It's a FPS/TPS MMO that is free to play along the lines of League of Legends micro-econ. Real money not needed unless you wanna customize kind of thing. The game looks pretty fantastic and I'm planning on checking it out (soon I hope... damned outage), just curious if anyone else here has heard of or seen it.

Looks cool. I'm pretty sure I saw a medic! Not totally sure if I'll be able to play it, though. My graphics card burned out a couple months ago. Been using a pre-WoW card. I can't even play LoL.

Lags a lil bit but I can play it. My name is Askadm. Medic poison ftw!!!! So far it's kinda like a third-person Borderlands w/ jet packs.

Downloading now. It'll be a little bit before I can get in though as I'm installing Portal2 at the moment. Big honkin game, that.

It's kinda fun so far. Only class I haven't done the first few junkyard quests with is the Recon. I'm kinda digging the Robotics at the moment. I also like how all your characters have the same name. Mine is Stonegiant.

I applied for the beta for Firefall which appears to be an ACTUAL MMO (persistant world and such) version of Global Agenda. I believe they are trying to take the same game and make it better... their class names are even the same: Assault, Recon, Medic and Robotic.

About this game, I haven't done much yet, only the Junkyard quests. I am a Robotic named Mojobacca. I have mixed feelings about them so far. I know I'm still small time, but my turrets, while they do pretty good damage, are VERY short ranged, so they are useless in the PvE environment where the AI is smart enough not to chase you... which I hate. I try to pull a target and then jump behind an obstacle and after a decent amount of time, I peek around the corner to see the target crouched down waiting for me to pop out.

In those instances, I just pop a health station and "go diplomatic".

I DO wonder how long before they nerf turrets giving you XP, though. There's almost always someone near the first Junkyard kill quest spawn point on that bridge with a turret and health station just hanging out soaking up XP. I use it as a stopover point to heal up after doing the Ant quest.

Wait... So GA isn't an actual MMO? What would you call it then?

I guess you could call it an MMO, in that it each word of the acronym is in there. But you will only ever see 20 people (10v10) at a given time in a scenario. And since everything after the newbie quests is just instanced scenarios, I would call it more like Tribes with a 3-dimensional interactive chat room.

Wow. I just lost a great deal of interest in this game. You have to be an Elite Agent (pay $20) to access the Auction House. That might just be a deal breaker for me. I will probably mess around with the game, but not seriously now.

Oh. I didn't actually realize that, Mojo. Hmm. I will probably still play around with it on the free, but nothing serious.

Nevermind on the robotics nerf question. You ONLY get XP from mission completions. The only point in doing this is to sell stuff on the AH.

Yeah, my interest in this game has dropped as well. I AM looking forward to Firefall though. That game is designed as a Free-To-Play game, so everything should be accessible from the start. GA was only recently made a F2P game.

PVP's about the only somewhat fun thing now. It's basically a bunched up version of TF2..... with jet packs.

Jet packing is pretty horrid unless you take the first two "talents" in the far left tree, right side. First reduces energy use of jet packs by 30% and the next increases energy by 40%. I like the second as it helps everything, not just jet package.

Shame you can't ski-jump with jet packs like you could in Tribes2. I'm gonna try to get a Recon a real sniper rifle to see how that works. I wonder if you'll ever be able to one-shot with "BOOM! HEADSHOT!".

Not sure if this game has a head shot box.

It doesn't and there isn't a headshot damage increase.

Just got pwned on my 11 Robo with a med station down by a melee mob that was white. He took so little damage from my gun that jetpacking and shooting him wouldn't do any good. I am disappoint.
