The game is fun especially for just being in Beta.


So yeah some people care because they actually enjoy gaming - not just being a hateful troll because their RL sucks.

Looks cool to me personally.  Will be trying it out when it hits open beta or release for sure.

This is a real Closed Beta and Red5 have made it evident that character customization, as of this phase, is barely more than an afterthought. Bug squashing and balance refining now, pretty princess later. The NDA only fell to prove the company has an open developent environment.


And why is everyone pitching a fit at the whole idea of it being free. Is nobody happy unless someone else is digging through their wallet?


I also have no idea whats wrong with the graphics that people are seeing, because the game looks fantastic on my end. I suppose having more than three colors is frightening to today's gamers.


 


Why everyone is bashing Firefall and praising the likes of Planetside 2 baffles me.


One will be fair for everyone, one lets you rent guns.

Yep, just being able to turn off the outline in champions made the graphics much better to me.

People are whining about the graphics because they can't handle anything but "realistic" anymore. It's so disappointing.


It has its own artistic style, and it looks good and feels good. Been in Beta for awhile and I'm really looking forward to what's to come.

I played it and I like it, some of the quests weren't working optimally and there were some glitches in the graphics, or maybe it was my video card, who knows.  For a F2P, I think it'll get some good attention, the jetpacking around feels similar to Section 8: Prejudice and the effects are nice.  Maybe it won't be as awesome as some people thought, including myself, but so far it's far from "bad".

Really?  When was the last 'realistic' mmo released?  Oh, that's right, NEVER.

Maybe we are just getting tired of the cartoony shortcut graphics mmo's are employing.

Do you really think an online FPS with the P2W business model will be successful? 

The only chance they have is to keep their cash shop to character customization, and I don't see any publisher willing to take that risk.

Bingo!  Cel shading is a way to take a shortcut graphically while justifying it with the "it's artistic" argument.  It's complete bollocks and has been ever since it came on the scene so many years back.  I'll say the same thing now that I said then about it.  Graphics are supposed to get better, more realistic not go backwards to the 8 bit , cartoony days.

I'm not because this game will be my F2P game and Tera will be my sub game.

For  free to play game it looks ok even more then ok, just wait and see how this one turns out.


There is lots of room for improvement so my gues is it still needs time to finetune lots of stuff.

Imo, these could be good qualities to the game. I'm still v interested in firefall. Thanks for the vids!

You can freely switch between 3rd and 1st person view.

 

As for those of you who dont like the cel-shading, well nothing we can do for you there, but if graphics really dominates your decision in games, all I can say is that youre limiting your range of games. Graphics should never come before gameplay when it comes to choosing games.

 

In the short amount that I have played (roughly 3 days), I have enjoyed my experience, however limited it is at the moment. But I understand what BETA means, so my expectations werent that high going into it.

There are things I don't like about the game, but the pros have outweighed the cons thus far, and I am excited to see where this title goes, and considering it will be a F2P game, the graphics and gameplay are some of the best I have seen.

 

If you like Team Fortress 2, you will like this game (Plus, it has Jetpacks!).

I watched a couple videos done by the Yogscast crew on Youtube and this game looks like fun. Reminds me of a Borderlands meets Gears of war mash up. I'll give it a try since its F2p.

The ammount of uninformed opinions in this comment section is hilarious.


 


I am not seeing anything of "team Fortress" here. I am not seeing anything of borderlands here or gears of war. Seriously were those comparing to those games born yesterday or is there no one old enough to remember the previous game of this lead designer in charge of firefall?


 


I am seeing cellshaded and a bit slower Tribes.

Whatever.  One can still appreciate it as a style, even if it isn't the most graphically intensive.  I really liked Borderlands partially because of the cel shaded graphics.  I'm looking forward to Borderlands 2 for the same reasons.  Firefall also fits into this category.  Know what else?  I can still enjoy comic books today that don't present themselves as holographic projections that leap off the page and play out in your lap.  That's right, some of us dig that "backwards", "8-bit" stuff.

So much f*cking snobbery.

Tastes differ. Just because you don't like it, doesn't make it wildly accepted as a lazy development, or plain bad for that matter.
