DUST 514: Suit Up and Roll Out With New Battle Kits

PS US Blog - In DUST 514, a massively multiplayer free-to-play first-person shooter exclusive to PlayStation 3, you can build an empire, wage war on a galactic scale and change the notorious sci-fi universe of EVE Online forever. But you can’t do it without the right gear. (DUST 514, PS3)

This game is terrible. Dedicated 4 months into this pos. Even the executive producer quit. Just visit their forums to see the state of the game, not to mention the player base.
Aiming and frames per second are still plaguing this game after 8 years of developement.

CCP is way too slow for fps console kids attention span.

Dust=epic fail

Just played a few games, had a blast! Upgraded my tank buster(sic)gun, and actually messed a tank up bad! Really fun!

I’ve been playing DUST 514 for 2 months now. I transitioned directly into it from single player console shooters so I haven’t played other MMOFPS shooters such as Call of Duty or Battlefield, so I can’t compare them all, but I can attest to the fact that this game is fantastic fun. A lot of the things that I like the most about it are precisely the things some other people have problems with. For instance, some people say it’s too difficult and that you can just jump into other MMOFPS shooters and play. DUST 514 is much more complex. After a couple of months I can take out noobs with just a few rounds, while more advanced players are much harder to take down. It’s impossible when they mob you when you’re by yourself and all you can do is get away or die. BlingBlaine (above) complains about the aiming system and he’s right. It’s difficult. That’s one thing that separates the more advanced players from the noobs. That’s probably true in any shooter. And, by the way, you do have to make adjustments to the aiming in the options tab. Also, you start out in the game with the lowest quality gear. It takes a long time to build up your skills in this game and the skill tree takes a bit of time to work out. You can pay 20$ or so for a start-up MERC kit, which I did, but beyond that it costs a bit too much for the pay-to-win kits, and I think any advanced player can easily take out a player with a pay-to-win kit. This game is not pay-to-win as far as I can see. As for the bugs, there have been a few, but they haven’t been nearly as debilitating as BlingBlaine makes out. For the most part, the game works just fine. I myself don’t have frames-per-second problems 99% of the time, so I think the problem might be on his end (BlingBlaine’s). Regarding DUST 514’s forums, there are a couple of different ones, one is a lot more active than the others.
