    Wouldn't mind trying the new PS.  First one was fun but really really laggy.

    I wouldn't mind another planetside, but I can't see paying $15/mo to play it.

    Fixed it for you - it was fine for thousands of other people.

    rarely was lag an issue. my issue was it was raised to 15 from 13 a month.

    I'd happily pay $15 a month, as long as its open world, and they dont have BigFuckingRobots. If it ends up like Global Agenda Im going to be so pissed. (And not really pissed I just wont care. As in it will be a game to ignore.)


    We'll see if Smedley can take something that worked great for them before, and not make the same fuck-ups a second time.

    John Smedley and Co. will find a way to fuck it up somehow.

    Like most, I'm terrified that it will just be bad......BUT......I do sincerely and fervently HOPE that they can capture PlanetSide again....I really, really miss the old game.......

    PlanetSide is still unique in the scale and freedom aspects.

    New mossy looks like a drone almost. I hope its more like a scout, tactical plane in PSN and they have some better planes for dog fighting. However, so far it just looks like a remake of the original game with new graphics and no BFR's unless smedley is lieing about that. TBH I'd be happy to play the original game with population again anyways, but it would be dumb to miss an opportunity like this to do so much more.

    hmm i wonder if this ss is from a trailer or gameplay or maybe its an artwork, if its from the gameplay then it will lag big time...

  • Luthor_XLuthor_X Campbellsville, KYPosts: 431Member

    I think a new PS could go over well... but then again

  • toljartoljar Elk river, MNPosts: 156Member Uncommon

    i hope this game looks like the SS. If people lag upgrade your computers...

    Well, I have a few things to say.

    First off, Planet Side (For me) was and still is the best MMO I've played Hands Down.   I had the most fun in that game.  Looking back, after I've played other MMO's like World of Warcraft (The game everyone I know from Planet Side went to)  I really do miss it a lot.   I still re-sub to it from time to time, to try it, but, it just is not the same without the Population it once had.  The Population is what made Planet Side so ...well Fun.

    I really fear that they will try to make it into something totally different, or "Modernize" it in some way.   Which will in turn make me not like it, as well as many others.  (I.E.  Core Combat, and BFR's those two things were Sony's attempt at "Modernizing" the game in an effort to get more new players, which did work...but ran off all the existing players).

    See, what made Planet Side fun for me, and I think I speak for most everyone else that played it and loved it, was a few things.   I liked it mainly because the gaming experience made me feel like I was actually involved in a "War"...or "Conflict".     In most other FPS games, it's just a "Kill Fest" or "Frag Fest"   Planet Side offered more than that.  Which made it extremely fun for people even if you were not the greatest at racking up large numbers or kills.    There was support to do, the large battles required a lot of complex stratagy that your just not going to find in any other FPS out there.


    To be honest, if they just made the new planet Side the way it was before Core Combat, and BFR's, with a new engine, and all new graphics, I'd probably play it for sure.


    But if they go to making it like any of the other FPS games out there, I'm probably not going to be interested in it.


    Yeah, I am certainly going to try it...but how it turns out will determine weather I stay.
