Default Planetside 2

So a couple of days ago I came into contact with the online shooter Planetside 2, and was blown away by its scale.

for a f2p the graphics are good, the lag is almost non excistent


anyone else playing? because I noticed that if you play in a regular outfit, it gets a whole lot more organised. and probably fun.

so do you play? whats your favorite class? what is your faction?

I can only say, that I recomend it heartily. but beware deu to the scale you realy have to stick to a group of your faction, or realy watch your back carefully.

This is why my current Steam troubles are really getting on my nerves, I really want to try this!

normtheunsavoury - I'd much rather have a stack of tattoos and other mods on my body than a suit of fucking armour in the corner I once pranced around a carpark in like a cunt.

You serious?! I have this game downloaded, and absolutely love the concept and style it's been made in. Personally, I play Vanu Sovereignty.

However - lag. I don't know if it's just me but I have absolutely horrendous lag that renders the game completely unplayable. As in I'll press a key, and maybe get the response a full second later. There are graphics glitches when I fire, I can't aim or move properly, and heaven forbid I try and fly an aircraft. I haven't worked out if it's because my graphics card is insufficient, or whether the server I'm using's a crock of shite. But all the same it's a damn shame that I can't play this because I bloody well want to.

P.S. for those who care, my graphics card is an Intel(R) HD Graphics.

Damn straight.

So long as you're shooting at spandex-wearing laser cultists or mindless fascist pigs, you're doing it right. Some people complain about recoil. They're just not manly enough to wield liberty.
