Hello Forum, I never played the first Planetside, honestly never heard of it, but a friend mentioned Planetside 2 to me and I've done some research and its caught my attention but sadly there is not much info available at the moment. I have a question though that I would love someone to answer, it looks like there are shields (similar to halo ) which is not a problem but I was wondering if the 1st Planetside was one of those games were players can take ridiculous amounts of damage, like a rocket or a headshot from a sniper or a full clip from a AR to the head? There are so many positive features that this would not disuade me from playing and I understand that this is a sci-fi game but some things should be kept in the realm of reality, thats all. Much appreciate any and all answers that aren't flaming, thanks
Which is necessary - when you have 100 people, and tanks, choppers, jets, mechs laying down fire constantly something like BF3 or CoD's damage model wouldn't work; you would die constantly.
PS2 is going to be the greatest shooter of all time, just like PS1 back in the day; so many legendary moments in that game, with friends it's the best. Nothing like it.

So for the 3 faction the appeal/play-style is something like:
Terran: Fast firing weapons and high Mobility. They do less damage per shot, but make that up with the sheer amount of lead they can shoot.
New Conglomerate: Heavy hitting and durable, but the slowest vehicles and fire rates.
Vanu Sovereignty: Great Maneuverability and their infantry weapons have no bullet drop (Not sure about vehicles), but their energy weapons suffer damage degradation quicker due to their no bullet drop.

TB has partnered with SOE to bring massive amounts of Planetside 2 content. Streams, ect. Also he will be commentating Planetside 2 battles at E3.

This game looks quite promising. I signed up for the beta. This might end up being a purchase.

Oh how I wish someone else then him did it. I can't stand him or his voice.
Do you know anyone else that does Planetside 2 videos?
I'm getting rid of my laptop and finally buying a desktop again specifically for this game. That, and SimCity 5, Mechwarrior Online, MoP and Skyrim.
My only disappointment is no native Mac Client.
really cant wait for this one roll on E3
