Yes and no. The "healing salvo" costs some virtual currency but you can buy it for 1-2 guns with the starting currency you get when you are a new player. In addition, it only takes like two matches to earn enough currency to buy the healing salvo. The game is mega generous.
I play this game like I play Quake. Fast, never aim down the sights, and with a rocket launcher and laser gun (that works like the Quake Lightning Gun). Feels good to have a shooter in my life again.
I saw a few minutes of Brad play this on Unprofessional Friday last week, but not enough to get a good idea of what it actually is. He was only testing weapons up to the point I had to stop watching.
I saw some numbers flying out of enemies when they got hit, Borderlands style, with customization options. That alone is enough for me to want to give it a go, but I doubt my current PC (laptop) will play it in a manner I'll be satisfied with. :S
Ahhh I've not watched that yet. Still catching up on Breaking Brad.
The system requirements seem pretty low in the wiki. You might be able to run it decently enough.
