Firefall Revisited [P3]

I remember when I was a kid, I would randomly start playing Pokemon, or bust out the N64 and play some Zelda Ocarina of Time, and play it for a couple of hours, and rinse and repeat daily, until either I got bored with it, or beat it. I think I've beaten Pokemon Yellow 100 times, same as for Zelda. Because they are just so damn fun, and just great overall games. Why do I bring this up? Well, I feel like that principle applies to Firefall. I can pick it up whenever I want, play it for awhile, couple hours at least, and log off. I don't think I could ever play it has like my main focus MMORPG, and that is not a bad thing at all. Maybe, because it's free to play? I'm not really sure to be honest, but it's one of those games that I can pick up daily, and just have some good 'ol fun. A stress reliever in a sense as well. That's what Firefall does 100% for me, it hits me in the fun factor. Straight up, I have had more fun in Firefall, than I had in my entire Paladin's career in FFXIV. So wait... Why Isn't this your main MMORPG?

As much as it strikes me in the fun factor, and the game has been developed for some time, and has lots of room to blossom. It's like this for me. I work, I come home, I eat, I play some Dota 2, then some Firefall, and then raid, and level some of my alts in FFXIV. The game has potential to be my most played MMORPG, but at the current state it is in, it's sort of like how I played when I was a kid, like I said before. It's the fun factor game, it's my stress reliever. It's sort of that happy MMORPG, that I have right now. So, what kinds of things are stopping it from being my full time MMORPG you could say? That's kind of hard to put into perspective. I'm not sure it has to do with game play, as much as it has to do with being myself. I'm leveling 3 frames at the moment, trying to figure out which one I like the best, and which ones fit my style of play the most.

I think the easiest way for my to describe it is like this... It has a lot of content, and the fun factor is there, but alas, I am used to games like FFXIV, or you know World Of Warcraft. I'm used to more of a themepark game, and so I'm more inclined to play FFXIV more than Firefall, because it's what I'm used to. I love both games, almost equally. There are things I dislike about both of them, but now is not the time to talk about FFXIV. It's Firefall's time. Speaking of dislikes, I would like to go over some of things that I dislike about Firefall, and why I do. It's not a big list, so it has that going for it. Haha.

Distance between Ares Missions, and Job Missions. I feel like if my Glider is on CD, or I don't have an LGV available, my quests have more walking than killing or anything like that. I dislike the fact that some of my job board quests, have me walking a far distance, to making kill a few mobs, or get there, then go another long distance to find the quest item, and then ALL the way back. Yes, I know we have jet packs, and we can kill and do things along the way, but I feel like questing is more walking than anything. The game world is beautiful, and I love to look at it all but... I'd like to get my quests done without being to AFK walk, and take a shower and still not be at my quest location.

I'm sure there are much worse things to complain about than that, but that's just one of my few dislikes about the game. I'll talk about one more dislike, which I find funny, and I think a lot of other people will to. My secondary weapon has infinite ammo. Oh god, how could I dislike that? I feel like my secondary weapon at times deals more than my primary, and since I have infinite ammo, why worry about ammo packs? I mean sure, I can easily craft ammo packs, but my secondary... It's infinite! I tease you R5, but I mean like... It takes some of the challenge away from me personally, that's all. Like I said, complaining about infinite ammo? Silly right? Still, nothing really bad to defer me from playing the game, and enjoying every minute of my time during.

Down the road, I would like to see more frames, more challenging ones. I mean some of them are really squishy, and you have to be careful. This is one of the main things I love about Firefall currently... If I want to be a tank? Switch frames! I feel like being a sniper today, or maybe a healer... Switch frames. I just love being able to do that. I touched a little last time about me being worried about Red 5. It would be such a huge turn off in later updates, they released Frames, that are really powerful, or you know whatever, at a steep price. Please Red 5. Never do this. I know you have to make money, but for me, that would such a huge turn off. Because 1. I'm tempted to buy it, and 2.Let's just not go down that road, please? Ahem, but yeah, whatever mood I am feeling frames let's me be that in the game. I think I switched to a sniper frame, and just went around, exploring and sniping random mobs. See, I'm having a blast doing random things. This, this is why I love Firefall.

I think the real question now is... Is Firefall ready to be launched? I know we've been in beta a long time, but is the MMO world ready for it? Are we even ready for it? I know I am, and I am super stoked for it. The game officially launches in 2 days! I couldn't be more happier for the guys over at Red 5. Well, it's 4AM where I am at, I think I will conclude part three here! During the week, I will posting part 4, which will be the final review for Firefall! (Probably after launch the review will be put up). If you enjoyed this post, and want to talk about, please leave a comment below, or tweet me @SirIsaacJewton I hope to see you in Firefall! Cheers!
