I received my beta key for Shootmania. I didn't know what it was going to be like as I have only seen videos and read previews for the thing. I wasn't prepared for what occured when I booted up. I am inclined to say the game is total dog shit, but a game like this is reliant on mods and things of the sort to really flesh it out, but unlike trackmania which is a fun game before the mods and crazy server stuff, shootmania sucks out of the gate. I wasn't sure how many duders got into the shootmania beta but I was interested to see what your opinions were. From the start you only have the ability to shoot (left mouse button) and jump/sprint (right mouse button for both...yeah). There are no weapons but the starting one (which sucks) and the only game mode I've seen is a sort of territory control. Highly disappointed but I figured I should stop playing for about 2-4 weeks and then come back and see what the game is like then.
