Re-linking here, since apparently, it's an mmo, in spite of people saying previously it won't be. Which is good. We like MMO's. Etc.

http://www.gamingtrend.com/forums/index.php?topic=41501.0

I can't believe nobody was interested in the previous thread... it looks quite interesting, at least to me. Jet/jumppacks... big guns... and bugs.

Lots of bugs.

Be sure and check out the channel on youtube, as they've now included developer comments over the gameplay video.

This, Black Prophecy, and The Secret World, are definitely on my 'near to play' list.

Well, people were already discussing it a little bit here

I might be interested, but have yet to see an FPS MMO with satisfying combat.

It's in open beta now and is a LOT different than before imo.  Having some of your typical open beta issues though.

Isn't this game a bit old to still be in beta?  They announced this way too soon, this had the biggest booth at PAX for like 3 years running, it became kind of a joke.

at some point they pretty much put everything on hold and reworked a bunch.  If FFXIV can do it, so can this slywink

Penny Arcade Report gave this some love, albeit with a "it's broken" caveat:
http://penny-arcade.com/report/article/the-firefall-beta-is-fun-beautiful-and-broken
*fwiw, most of the commenters are of the "how many years does it take to fix this thing?" ilk.

I'm of the feeling that any game is better with jetpacks in it, and not enough games use them. Outside of Relic's Warhammer 40K: Space Marine, not enough games in recent years -- that I've gotten to try anyway -- make full use of them in a fun way.

Section 8: Prejudice was pretty good.

Tribes: Ascend certainly makes great use of jetpacks.
