Good. Planetside 2 is a flawed gem. I'm happy to see major updates being rolled out. The game has so much potential.

Well it's been a while since I suited up, and rolled out my Magrider... Long Live the Vanu!!!!

Maybe they will actually optimize it for the CPU. Have an 8 core FX-8350 and still get the same issues in big battles like my quad core did. but my friend with the same specs as me except he has a 6 core cpu can run it flawlessly???

The problem w/ PC gaming unfortunately. My friend has a gfx card stronger than mine but his occasionally has problems with textures loading improperly and I always make fun of him because he got a newer card yet mine is more consistent.

papashango1740d ago

not pc gaming but PS2.

There are issues like this across the board with the game under-utilizing pc hardware or just straight up glitching out.

I truly wish I had an FX-8350. Got a 8150 and it is... terrible. It really struggles dodgy console ports.

Sweet! Platoon enhancement is finally being implemented. MAG players requested this the most because before this all 48 players in a platoon would talk in Platoon chat.

Awareness Implant needs to be taken out though. It's bad for people who like to kill without being detected. Nothing like killing a squad by yourself as a Vanu Recon Sniper. Mines at the best choke points.

I cant wait for them to add the underground tunnel systems for the bases/outposts.

I can't wait to try this beast out on my Ps4.

Zero231741d ago

Who the hell do you think you are having such a badass avatar?

FlameHawk1741d ago

I know right! I wanted to play it on my PC but even on the lowest setting it was lagging.

PickAShoe1741d ago

The advantage of low setting lets me see the damn Vanu.

MysticStrummer1741d ago

Planetside 2 is one of the few titles that have ever made me want to game on PC, so I can't wait for it on PS4.

My big screen, surround sound, Planetside 2, pizza, and beer...

Greatness awaits.

KingKelloggTheWH1741d ago

Take out the beer and surround sound and I got the same thing XD

Murad1741d ago

Just hook it up with an HDMI, and get yourself a controller with the same things and it's a done deal. But you're right, you it still wouldn't feel the same.

TheOneEyedHound1740d ago

Same thing, might also add some Ziti.

InMyOpinion1740d ago

Take out the big screen, surround sound, Planetside 2, pizza, and beer, and add a van down by the river and I got the same thing.

papashango1740d ago

Well if they throw you guys into the fray with pc gamers. Be prepared to rage quit

MysticStrummer1740d ago

@papashango - They said PC gamers might be able to use their accounts on their PS4 but there won't be cross platform play because the update approval process is slower for the console patches.

Makes me wonder why that is, since I'd think it would be the other way around because the console hardware is standardized and the PC's is far more varied.

Triple Screen Eyefinity with Peripheral View, 9.1 Surround Sound, Cognac, and Lasagna!

Stopped playing Planetside 2 a while ago but I will pick it back up to test out the PAY 2 WIN Implants!

MysticStrummer1740d ago

@ATi - What I read about the implants said they could be bought with certs or station cash. I don't think that qualifies as pay to win.

but... but... I like it the way it is! Don;t do a PS1 and change it to kill the game off >.> BFRs?!?!?

edit: however, I;m glad to see implants back.

Reefskye1741d ago (Edited 1741d ago )

Planetside 2 still not as fun as Planetside was except for BFR's ofc (still have the game CD on my shelf), but its getting there glad they brought back the lattice system from original as there was just no co-ordination. All we need now is every continent we had in Planetside with proper warp gates.. And maybe a few LLU events for the sheer size of battles they created!

Anyone who disagrees with Smoey obviously has no clue about the original and why BFR's ruined the game


TomShoe1741d ago

This game is going to be a hit, I'm sure.

FrightfulActions1741d ago

Looking forward to playing this on PS4. Wouldn't mind trying it on PC first though. Just unfortunate my processor cannot support the game.

M-M1741d ago

I don't think mine can either, but I'm about to try it anyway >:).
