... For fans of the original Planetside.
So apparently there's going to be killcams, one-man battle tanks, and pre-defined classes and class loadouts. Sounds nothing like Planetside to me.
Anyone else got this gut wrenching feeling in their stomach that Planetside 2 won't be the Planetside we knew and loved? It's starting to sound more and more like Battlefield and COD to me with this whole class unlock and vehicle unlocking crap concept. Not to mention a killcam. What new thing could a killcam POSSIBLY bring to the playing field that would be in any way positive and enjoyable?
God it's just disgusting what we've seen so far. Here's to hoping that for the first time in gaming and beta history the entire game is revamped, changed, and made into what it was supposed to be from the start. I always hold out hope that by some miracle the devs decide to go back on their Call of Duty gaming tendencies and give us a truly team-based, massive scale MMO shooter that we had with Planetside 1. Oh well, we'll always have ArmA 3 and Carrier Command to look forward to if SOE fucks this one up again.
I can provide some sources for some of my accusations if you'd all like, otherwise, check the videos in the GDC thread and make some judgements on your own.
