Nice caps, Scorpio.

I couldn't get a good shot, but this was one of my favorite moments. Something like 10 Galaxies heading for a hot drop. The Barneys didn't know what hit 'em.

No I don't want the other DLC's!

Well unless I win the lottery and can devote months to video games.....I still haven't finished General Knoxx, and have all the other original DLC's to get through.

I've tried getting into Planetside 2, but the learning curve is pretty steep and I lost interest.

I've heard that. I took half an hour while the game was loading to watch all the Basic Training videos on YouTube and had a pretty good idea as to what was going on. Jumped into a squad and it was pretty much just a matter of following waypoints and orders. It still took a while to figure out what all the little icons are and how to find my way around the bases but that just came with time.

The game is all about leadership. If you don't have a good command structure it quickly devolves into a free-for-all. If you have a good platoon leader and squad leaders you can dominate the game pretty quickly. The things they taught me in the Army apply to this game. Shoot, move, communicate. The outfit I joined, Corporate Legion, runs some pretty good platoons, as long as the platoon leader and squad leaders are talking, things go pretty good in the game.

I'd give it another look if I were you. If you like team-based MMOs, I can't think of a better game out in the market, there's simply nothing like it. it makes other multiplayer FPSes look shallow in comparison. Look at the screencap that YakSpout posted, 6 Galaxy drop ships in there with 12 players in each. That's 72 players right there, Battlefield 3 would blow itself up trying to comprehend the scale of Planetside 2. Though at the end of the day it's still just a bunch of guys on the ground shooting each other for reasons unknown and bases/lands that exchange hands every half hour (that reminds me of something... ).

Some Engineer fun in Planetside 2. Watch it in 1080P for best results. The game's built-in capture isn't the greatest even at the highest ratings and YouTube probably dirties it up some more.

Wow, the new PS4 is a pretty heavy duty machine. 8 gigs of GDDR5, that's a strong package (not at all cheap, though). And the DualShock with a touchpad and lightbar (for motion sensing). Decreased input latency also sounds nice. Liked the headset jack on it as well.

There is where the issue is.....finding a group to play with. If I got into it, I'm not going to play as hard or devote as much time to it as I do to WoT. It just doesn't seem to be a very "casual gamer", drop in and play once or twice a week game.

I usually play once or twice a week for about 2 hours at a shot. I'm in an outfit, but it's small, so I generally just join squad after squad until I get in one that has some decent leadership. Takes about 5min at the very beginning. I just listen for clear directions and look to see that the platoon and squad leaders are using waypoints and setting assignments.

Once I find a good squad, I'm ready to go. But it's definitely not a game for 30min here or 15min there if you want to get any decent exp or have fun.

The big battles or continent zergs can take hours.

Black Ops II is free for the weekend on steam, and looking awesome maxed out @ 1920x1200 60 FPS.

And I'm almost 1:1 in my 2nd game using the 360 controller.
