    My flat mate lives on WoW because of his other half. He'd never previously even played an RPG let alone an MMO. I tried telling him that he should try others such as EVE and even mentioned Planet Side.

    "Sounds geeky"

    lol.

    This game looks amazing. I really hate SoE so it pains me to admit it, but it looks like they might be on to a winner with this game.

    After the hours I spent in PS, I'm really looking forward to this.
    This month's PCGamer UK includes a code for priority BETA access :)

    although i'm classed as a PS 'veteran' i'll be getting a PCGamer as well since unfortunately I don't trust SOE to give the early access to every PS subscriber.

    US issue but that's for April so I doubt it's available.

    UK issue, but this one dates back all the way to December. Furthermore, the website doesn't have anything about any issue past the March one so I have no clue as to whether they have re-covered PS2 for PCG UK again.

    I've already applied for a key but i'm not counting on SOE to send one to me speedily so i was wondering if anyone would like to trade a PS2 beta key for a CSGO key?

    I'm disappointed at my friends' lack of interest in this game. Not that they represent any kind of demographic or anything... but I saw the videos and was blown away, and they didn't seem to care. I just find it hard to understand how anyone could watch some of the huge scale sci fi battles with a huge world, amazing graphics, and gameplay that looks like a cross between Unreal Tournament's Onslought, and Tribes. Basically it looks epic to me, I hope the gaming public get behind it.

    I got the mag, it states in an article on page 39 the release is in Winter, bit disappointed as i thought it looks mostly done, but still possibly 6+months for it.

    Maybe the beta will be like tribes and be beta right upto release day :)

    Got my early access beta key. Now what faction are people going to play? I don't know myself, but the Vanu have BT written all over them don't they.

    BT?

    Im torn between Terran and Conglomerate. Vanu look too sci fi for me lol! PLus i prefer bullets over plasma/lazor any day :p

    Terran apparently have a faster rate of fire on the weapons and are the established military force, but i like the look of one of the new conglomerte opne of the aircraft looks the business with all the rockets on it lol

    bit-tech - what else! Purples and about technology, just needs some over-kill water cooling. I'm liking the look of the Conglomerate MAX suits. the Terran Republic appear somewhat feminine with the round armour, but I like the colours grey/red - reminiscent of the Brother of Nod. With the Vanu, I like the stick up the arse attitude. So I don't have a favourite at this stage, I hope we'll get to throughly try them all at during beta.

    Vanu Sovereignty. Bunch of pussies. I was TR in the original. The sheer amount of bullets that fill the air around a battle from the TR is just incredible. They were the ultimate in defence. I did have a few NC alts, but TR all the way for me. Their technology is near-future tech, which suits me more.

    Anyone seen some of the vids by the cynical brit on youtube? Seem to be the best vids i can find, a lot of people copying some stream at E3 which is terrible quality.

    I like how he explains stuff as he goes, im a noob to planetside (i spent an hour on it years ago when i managed to acquire some sort of trial) but the whole idea is awesome. I play EVE online which is already a single shard MMO.

    Hoping some of my eve mates will get in on it too, would be awesome for 4 or 5 of us to attempt stealth missions into bases lol
