Anybody here playing Planetside 2?

I spent $1500 on a gaming rig just to play this game. I haven't had a gaming PC in over a decade but when I saw the reviews and footage of Planetside 2 I had to get it. This game is so epic.

Yep. Mentioned it a few pages back, but nobody else said there were playing it.

Great game on XBox, what are the controls like on Wii? Do you have to do physical gestures for the moves?

Don't ever let go of anything while playing.

I'm playing NC in Helios.

The game has such a steep learning curve but holy crap it's all kinds of fun. Within the 10 minutes I got squadded with a platoon of tanks. I hopped into somebody's tank to AG for them. It was like an old school Command and Conquer tank rush, only the tanks were manned by individual players. The amount of players and action was just plain ridiculous. So confusing but so awesome.

Last night I got squadded in with an awesome crew. All we were doing was doing sneak attacks behind enemy lines, capturing unmanned bases. A dozen guys load up in a Galaxy, sneak around the front lines and hit them from the rear. Deploy, capture, back in the Galaxy and head for the next base. If the Galaxy gets blown up one of the infiltrators hacks a terminal and gets us a Sunderer to plod around in. I've never seen that kind of teamwork in a game before.

So, a friend of mine is wanting us to get a racing game for the XBox to play online. I am thinking Forza 4 since it has been out 1.5 years now and should be found pretty cheap for what was reviewed as a good game. Is that the route we should go? Or are there better racers out there

I like the Dirt series myself.

Massive battles at The Crown are insane, but I like the sneaky behind-the-lanes caps, too.

I need to go to flight school. I like flying around but gravity doesn't like me. I somehow managed to flip a Reaver upside down while on the ground last night. There should be an achievement for that.

Well done, sir!

Flying definitely takes practice. Fly around inside the warpgate where you can't take damage or inflict damage on friendlies. It's a decent place to learn.

Forza 4 is pretty good. It tries to be a"real" simulation game. Personally I like tweaking the settings and upgrading to dial in my cars. If you end up getting it let me know. I have millions of $$$ and a ton of cars. I can send you a few cars to get you started. Ya, I played it way to much.

The new Forza "Horizon" game is totally different. More cartoony, but fun if you just want to rip around in a free environment.

If money is a concern get Forza 3. Not a huge difference to 4.

Is it just me? but Borderlands 2 is kicking my ass. I thought this game was supposed to be fun, I can't remember when I've been so close to flinging a controller across the room I'm playing as Zero and have got to level 18 but where are the kick-ass guns I hear about, I've died more in this game than in 2 play-throughs of Fallout 3 and Skyrim combined. I guess I am not Dragonslaying legend I thought I was Seriously though I'm almost ready to quit. Am I the only one having a hard time?

What system are you playing on?

I played it alone for a while and hit some areas I could not clear by myself. I opened the game to public and had some strangers drop in and lighten my struggles. I made some friends along the way they have hooked me up with weapons and gear. I now find it more fun to coop play than going solo.

Try it out online.

Joe
