PostSubject: Planetside 2   Sat Feb 02, 2013 8:25 pm

Nakia asked me about the game but i am not any good at reviewing games. I can give a synopsis of the game instead.

Planetside 2 is referred to as an MMOFPS. It focuses on large battles between the different factions using infantry, vehicles and aircraft.

There are Three factions:
The Terran Republic whose colors are red and black. An authoritarian government that leverages military might to maintain strict control over the colonial citizens, the Terran Republic is obsessed with the preservation of law and order and are thus seen by some to be an oppressive and dictatorial force, but many view the TR as the only hope for lasting security on Auraxis.

The New Conglomerate whose colors are blue and yellow
The New Conglomerate operates as a loosely organized band of freedom fighters, vehemently opposed to the stranglehold that the Terran Republic has on Auraxis. Led by an unusual quorum of outcasts, industry titans, and pirates, the New Conglomerate is unwavering and prepared to achieve freedom from oppression by any means necessary.

The Vanu Sovereignty whose colors are purple and green.
The Vanu believe that only through the mysterious power of ancient technology can humanity truly evolve its next state of existence. They are an advanced and cunning faction, employing powerful alien technology on the battlefield. Their singular purpose is to uncover the secrets hidden away in ancient artifacts scattered over the surface of Auraxis and they annihilate anyone who interferes with their progress.

sorry, the descriptions come from the website.
here is a video that should help for anyone attemtping to get into the game, i watched it when i first played.



edit: a note, I have TR and NC characters on waterson and VS on Helios.

Thank you, Lndf, that is fine. Smile Any comments you can add about how you find the game play and how you like it would be nice too. No one expects a professional review. In fact no one wants a professional review. What is important is what the players think of the game.

I personally find it fun, though it is often more fun if you are in an organized squad or outfit with a leader who is actually organizing things, you can join in on battles without being in one but it is often more fun and more productive if you are. There are multiple classes you can play as: light assault, heavy assault, engineer, infiltrator, combat medic and the MAX unit. as well as the vehicles. Each faction has its own main tank and air fighter.
I don't have any specific complaints about it and they just released an update that i am still waiting for it to finish downloading.

Here I come, Lndf, ready or not. Now you have two newbies to nurse maid through this game. Very Happy Hope you have a lot patience. I'll be there soon. When Mr. K told me it was free I decided to give it a try. Just hope I can read the text.

Watched a couple of tutorials and it looks very complicated to me. Remember this, remember that. Laughing there are days when I'm doing good to remember who I am.

I finally got into the game, got the character set up and then suddenly I am in the middle of a battle with no idea what to do or who to shot at. I did watch a couple of the video tutorials but they are worthless for a complete beginner.

I have to look at the control map. I will need vvoice help. No way I can read what is on screen. I can manage the settings screen and need to experiment with the settings to see if I can improve it for my sight.

At least I am not bored anymore.

Yeah they drop you into battle when you first create a character, not very helpful for newbies, though they are planning on adding a training area.

Update: Station Name - Nakiarogue
Current character Name- Nakiarogue
Location - Indar

I can go to Full Screen Window mode which makes it much easier to read things but impossible to play the game. Handy for checking out settings and stuff like that.

I checked out the voice chat and it looks easy to set up. I did a test. Recorded and then played back. We will need to experiment with input and output settings are end up blasting each others ears off if my test was any indication of feedback.

How do we link together? Set up a squad? Lndf should do that I think since he has much more online game experience and experience with this game.

I need to know the server you are on and your faction, oh and your station name is just your login name, we don't really need to know that.

Thanks. I find that the default receive volume in game( for receiving voice chat) is a little quiet unless you turn it up a little.

I have been watching the tutorial videos and trying to get a handle on the controls. Been a bit busy this weekend. Mr. K and Lndf let me know your character name on Waterrson Server please.

Tellsworth - TR Waterson. the character has the outfit tag [BRIT] though that isn't really needed, all you need is the name.

edit: i also have an NC character on waterson named Tethras and a VS on Helios named Calco.

A squad is like a group in any other mmo so i can start one( and probably should since i have the squad spawn beacon and other squad upgrades). So for me to start one you and/or mr k need to be online so you can play.

I believe Mr. K is busy today helping his daughter move but hopefully we can get together in the next couple of days. I have a bit busy with some things. Got several projects going online and offline.

Have you thought of a name for the squad?

Squads and outfits are different, squads don't need a name whereas outfits are more like guilds and do. I am already in an outfit on every one of my characters so i can't create one of those. A squad i can create and can do anytime you or mr k want to play.

Hi PlanetSide 2 players;

My TR player "MrK281B" is on Waterson.
My VS player "MrK281C" is on Helios.

I am at battle level 3 or 4, and I have not spent any money on any upgraded weapons or armor, I may at some point. Way more getting killed than doing the killing, so far.

If you want to play, let me know, or see if I am online in Steam, and just start a chat, and we can set it up.

I would like to team up with another player in a 2 man vehicle and be the gunner, not the driver. I think I can hit a target from a moving vehicle, and I want to try that.

I will try out the Voice chat, and see how that works. In-game there are voices that are generic lines from the game, and sometimes I hear other players talking, I think it is when I am in a Squad and the other Squad members are talking in voice chat.

Hi Lndf;

If you want to overclock your smart box, you will need to have a good monitor for temp and voltage. The one I use is: CPUID. Link below:
http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

You can cook eggs on you motherboard if it gets too hot, and speeding up the clock is just like turning an electric stove to a hotter setting. You probably know more about this than I do, but just in case, I wanted to say this anyway.

I already have the program you listed as well as cpu-z from the same website. Honestly, overclocking processors is complicated enough that i probably won't end up doing it because i don't want to accidentally break it. The video card i could overclock easily.

You can hear people talking in the game's voice chat if:A.) they are in your squad or outfit and talking in the respective voice chat channel. B.) they are nearby and talking in proximity chat
