A shooter/syfi MMO!

xalvixalvi brooklyn, NYPosts: 329Member

Are there any games that is in the syfi genre, perferrably shooter types.

I have seen that they don't make syfi/shooter MMOs compared to fantasy types.

So sick of those fantasy based MMOs, most of them are pretty much a copy of other crappy games. I'm thinking something such as Global agenda. Any thoughts on any solid syfi/shooter MMOs?

 

I'm into pvp, while i do enjoy pve at times i'd like a game that would focus heavy on PvP.

    Defiance - April 2013, first beta is Jan 18th, you can sign up here:

    www.defiance.com

    The game features a huge persistent world with pve content (missions, dungeons, etc...) as well as opt in open world PvP. Gear and skill upgrades via alien tech are a major part of the game. Vehicles are also in.

    Planet side 2 is PvP only, it has no pve content period, and very limited character customization.

    Slightly off topic but since it's mentioned in the title, I have to ask...

    When and why did "science fiction" start getting abbreviated to "sy fi"?

    Actually Defiance looks like it's going to be an excellent MMOFPS far as PvE style shooters go (least it looks PvE).

    If you're just looking for some good ol PvPing, PS2 is actually pretty fun.  Even for a non-PvPer like me =)

    You certainly aren't the only one who cringed when they read that.

    PS2 and Firefall are the two that come to mind.

    Well if you play on a PS3 there is EVE's/CCP's Dust514. But its exclusive only for the PS3. You can find the game forum for it here: http://www.mmorpg.com/gamelist.cfm/game/494/view/forums/forum/1059/General-Discussion.html

    OP just can't spell. There's a shitty "sci-fi" (in quotes because I has more wrestling and bullshit ghost hunter shows of all things than actual sci-fi nowadays if I recall correctly) channel called Syfy in the US though so maybe that's where he got... half of the spelling from.

    Actually it's not just the OP.  The science fiction channel changed their logo to "SyFy" a while back.

    @gunthology warframe looks awesome, some people may not know but developers of warframe did a game call darksector i played on the consoles warframe using the same engine as darksector.

    Ya sorry about the "sy fi" confusion. 

     

    Thanks for the helps, but im not only limiting myself to scy fi. Something like modern area army based shooters, CoD/battlefield comes to mind.

     

    Going to check out PS2 and Defiiance though. Im looking for more of a pvp experience.
