Yep, and I confess, I don't really get it. I mean, obviously I get the MAG/Battlefield shooty-shoot bits, but I'm overwhelmed by the All Skills menu, which I can't help but look at even though I shouldn't, and by the sheer magnitude of the marketplace. Also, I'm compulsively stingy with in-game currency, and don't like spending fake money unless I'm sure it's an upgrade--I'm sure that's not how I'm supposed to play. Also, I have no idea how to get skill points. I hope things are better explained in the release form.

But, it has two very compelling descriptors--"Neat" and "Free."

Much of my joy is in seeing others' names. I spent most of a game hunting down Bob Loblaw. Personally, I decided that all my characters' last names should be Islay scotches.

I'm pretty stoked about this idea, and the potential connection to Eve. I dled it last night but haven't had a chance to try it yet.

I just tried this again.
I still suck at FPS on PS3. I can't figure out how these guys with 13 kills and no deaths are able to pull it off. They practically one-shot me every time. Obviously they have upgraded armor and guns, but i cant even get my reticle to aim! Is there a targeting button? There's no training grounds so I'm fumbling.

Anyways, I thought I'd give it another go and yes, i am the suck.

I really didint find the look of the game engaging at all. It do anything for me, but I'm still hopeful that they find something satisfyingly original here.
