Anyone else going to try this out when it goes free? I'll be trying the PS3 version and I thought it would be fun if we could group up and goof around. Add me and post your PSN and we'll set something up if you are interested. I'll edit this post later if people are interested, I'm in class right now so I shouldn't even be on Giant Bomb!

I'm going to try it out, but all of my video game time will be devoted to Skyrim when it releases.

#3 Posted by jetsetwillie (857 posts) -

yeah, i'l check it out.

but with so much else out to play at the moment i feel that i just won't have time to play it.

hear its a MASSIVE client download.

#4 Posted by RE_Player1 (7549 posts) -
@Axxol Yeah Uncharted 3 is the same day so I'll probably be playing that more but I kind of want to run around and pretend I'm Batman.
#5 Posted by DeeGee (2113 posts) -

Hell yeahhh.

#6 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7613 posts) -

Yeah, I'll be giving it a go.

Star Trek Online is going F2P soon as well, and despite hearing so much negativity about that, there's actually a lot to enjoy (I've been using a free trial). But as others have said, with Skyrim and Zelda (and Torchlight?) coming that month, it's not going to be very high on my must play list.

Does anyone know the download size? I hear it's upwards for 20GB.

The beta download was 17GB.

Yup. I would consider it if the next few months weren't so packed with potential greats (on top of my endless backlog).

@ProfessorEss Good thing my bandwidth cap resets the 1st of every month. This thing is going to take forever to download.
#10 Posted by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

im going back to it for a bit, probably lvl another char since its quite fast to reach the cap. im in full blown mmo mode with my hype for old republic, so anything will do until then >_>

Yeah, it'll be something that I play while I wait for my anticipated games to release.

#12 Posted by Rattle618 (1463 posts) -

Do they have different servers for PS3 and PC clients? Cause it would be nice for all of us to play together.

#13 Posted by RE_Player1 (7549 posts) -
@Rattle618 I'm afraid they are separate. Yeah they dropped the ball on that.

I have been planning on giving it a try since SWTOR is a long way off still. Thou, the 20gig download is a bit of a con if you ask me. I'd hate to end up spending more time on download then playing. I didn't know that the Star Trek mmo was going to be f2p. I really wish they get it out a few weeks before SWTOR so I can give it a go.

#15 Posted by matthias2437 (985 posts) -

Going to be spending all my time from November 1 to November 11 thinking about Skyrim. No time for mediocre MMOs.

#16 Edited by project343 (2812 posts) -

Played it when it came out with the free month. Will probably download and play every now and then.

Long way off? Pshaw. You clearly haven't been following the game religiously since it's announcement on October 21st, 2008. Most of the sane world has been following this game for just over 3 years. What's 2 months? :P

#17 Posted by louiedog (2333 posts) -

It's like 20 gigs right? I have a download cap and got both a new laptop and PS3 in the last week which has led to a lot of downloading. Maybe in three weeks when it resets I will check the game out. Even then I don't know, because I really don't see it as something I'll play for more than an hour.

Same, i'll be on PC though, be fun to group up with some people and experience everything!

#19 Posted by DarkChris (17 posts) -

20 giga?????? I have the 80 GB, there's no empty space and the game needs 20 giga? I hope I can play it in my PC or laptop (where can I see the requirements?).

Basically this.
 
I'll give it a try just because it's free, but I don't plan on spending much time with it.
#21 Posted by MikeydCT (563 posts) -

Im going to play it after a week of Uncharted 3, also with my slow internet and PSN slow download it may take a week to download. Something I been wondering is people who have (never played it before) or get a retail copy will they become premium members?

#22 Edited by MikeFightNight (1075 posts) -

I wonder what all the retail stores are going to be doing with left over stock of this game? Will they just be giving them out for free?

#23 Posted by FluffyZombeh (57 posts) -

Meh I'll pass. I'll ask my friends how they like it because they said they're gonna try it. Other then that on November 2nd I'm going to be too busy with the Gundam SD Capsule Fighter Online Beta until Skyward Sword comes out. (Has no money for Skyrim)

#24 Posted by Redbullet685 (6024 posts) -

I was, but then I heard it would be a 20 gig download. That would take me a full day to download. Also, its the day Uncharted comes out, so I'll be playing that.

#25 Posted by huntad (1930 posts) -

I played it when it had a subscription. I'd say those who haven't tried it will probably like it for a little while. You hit the level cap too fast though, and then you run into people who superficially require certain pieces of gear before they let you go with them on any high level stuff. It's a great game that just needed some extra polish (so it wouldn't constantly freeze) and some more content.

Holy fuck. I was going to download it but I don't want to wipe my HDD for one fucking game.

@msavo: Add me, man. PSN: LordToastington

#29 Posted by RE_Player1 (7549 posts) -

FYI It's on the PSN store now. Roughly 14GB.

#30 Posted by Shadow (4977 posts) -

City of Heroes having gone free to play, I don't need another superhero MMO in my life. If it's a free download on a PS3, I'll check it out though

#31 Posted by RE_Player1 (7549 posts) -
@Shadow It is free on PS3 now.
#32 Posted by Brians (1458 posts) -

No because I played it before and they have a really stupid password retrieval system. Yes I stupidly bought the game in January.

#33 Posted by Wampa1 (626 posts) -

@msavo: In the UK it has a £40.00 Price tag attached.

#34 Posted by Revixe06 (38 posts) -

I have the game downloading at the moment. I can't wait to play it!

#35 Posted by Vonocourt (2116 posts) -

Gonna let it download while I sleep, may spend an hour with it before class tomorrow. I'm not expecting for it be on my HDD long though.

#36 Edited by MightyDuck (1500 posts) -

Wow at least 14GB!?

I was definitely interested in giving it a try, but if it's that big of a client download then I'll probably end up passing.

#37 Posted by Devil240Z (3261 posts) -

I'm patching now. Playing the PS3 version.

#38 Posted by BabyChooChoo (4277 posts) -

Is there a max level for the people too cheap to cough up any money? Because if what's happening to me right now is what I think what's happening then I can imagine the shit about the hit the fan for a bunch of people.

#39 Posted by Kraank (74 posts) -

I'm downloading it now.

#40 Posted by Bam_D_Leprechaun (795 posts) -

i'll check it out, played the Beta and wasn't really impressed, but it's been out a while so...

#41 Posted by benpicko (1995 posts) -

Servers are down :(.

#42 Posted by Silver-Streak (1336 posts) -

Servers are up. Just queued.

Also, when they did the Megaserver merge, all of my characters got the abbreviation of their server name on the end of them. Sadly, all of my names (I was in beta/launch, so I had a character by "Echo" and "echoes") got sniped because of that. Boo.

Game's still a lot of fun, though.

#43 Posted by rynbeed (143 posts) -

I will re-open my account for awhile, I left a maxed out toon way back when the game dropped. Felt as I had seen enough and am not at a point in my life that I can spend $13/mo on a game so didn't stick around outside of the free month.

I'll dink around in it from now until Skyrim comes out.

#44 Posted by McShank (1629 posts) -

since its F2p now, ill start my account back up and enjoy the game once again.

#45 Posted by falling_fast (2183 posts) -

everything I've heard and seen of this game, including the giantbomb coverage, looked goddamn terrible. pass.

#46 Posted by Mechwing (265 posts) -

don't even bother joining the PvP server. lv 30's will come to your starting leveling zone and kill you, than just camp the spawn area. so you can't do anything for hours.

#47 Posted by Rattle618 (1463 posts) -

Im liking it so far, Im on the US PvP server (PC version), I cant make a guild, but if there are more people interested in playing together here maybe we can make that happen.

#48 Posted by Bam_D_Leprechaun (795 posts) -

servers seem down

#49 Posted by Darkstalker (702 posts) -

ill be trying it this weekend

psn:BradBrains

#50 Posted by Scrud (27 posts) -

I got most of the way through creating a character then was disconnected. Since then I haven't even gotten past choosing hero or villain before I'm disconnected again.

Maybe I'll try tomorrow.
