    Game is great. I completely agree that the game only looks cartoony when you're standing still. With its fast paced action it's incredible fun.

    9x10 means 9 damage per round, and it shoots out 10 rounds.

    In other news, I've got my second Mordecai to level 15ish.

    So far, I ain't really liking it. Something about the graphics/perspective is driving my brain mad. I've also encountered multiple beasts I couldn't even scratch let alone kill before them killing me. A few hours in and I'm already quite frustrated.

    Yes, it works exactly like that. Obviously the shotguns mean at close range, but my quad barreled SMG does 24 X 4. It eats ammo for breakfast though.

    Sounds really close to a one off character from my favorite show, Futurama (it was Malacai - not sure on spelling)

    And damn Binge that alien sniper is HAWT

    No I'm not even remotely close to being lvl 50 yet...but so far my lvl 25 balance between gunslinger and sniper is pretty good. If a group of baddies end up taking me down all i do is bust out my revolver and 1 shot the closest to me and get my second wind...I am one of thoes guys who love big #s popping off peoples head. LOL critting midget psychos for 2k <3

    You seemed to hate champs because it was an MMO and you havent ever played one. If you like FPS's you will love this game, its very fun. The cartoony artwork in this is different than champs, it looks pretty real when moving around, only time I notice it is if I stop and see a texture loading.

    The areas aren't all one level, they seemed to be filled with some high level mobs and a lot of low level ones. That way it brings you back to that area instead of forgetting about it. I did the samething, I went and picked on a bunch of level 10 mobs and got owned, but that didn't bother me, I just didnt go to that place again as there was no point in going there.

    So which of the 2 is it? the 9x10 = 10 damage for 9 rounds doesn't make a ton of sense. Thats the way any weapon works, if it says 17 damage and has 24 rounds it would be 17 damage per round.

    It seems the damage multiplier is only on shotguns, and I guess that doesn't worry me too much as it seems everything in this game sees you from miles away, so far shotguns been pretty pointless.

    I disagree. While I prefer revolvers & sniper rifles, I still use the shotguns with elemental effects, as they are really nice for the psycho’s and wildlife.

    That thang is teh sickness! Does it have a zoom?

    When you look at a character, it shows the character's level. If it's 2 levels higher than you, GTFO. There are also symbols on the top left of the little pop-up screen that show if the enemy is dangerous. An exclamation point means watch your ass, and you can probably only take him on with a few really good crits and by himself. A skull means you won't touch him, and you better not try, or you're dead.

    I have used revolvers. I don't like them. If I have to use a weapon with a slow(er) firing rate, I'd rather do so at a distance, or with a spread like a shotgun.

    When you look at the damage spot, if it fires multiple projectiles per pull of the trigger, it will show a white damage number, and a yellow projectile count, and scroll between the two. Shotguns all have this, and some repeaters, revolvers, and SMGs that I have seen also have it.

    -------------------------------------------------

    Couple things I did that made gameplay better for me:
    • Turned off auto-aim/aim assist/whatever it's called.
    • Messed with my mouse sensitivity. I turned it WAY down. Maybe 3rd from last. Then again, I have a Razer Deathadder, so it's a fairly touchy mouse to begin with.

    Mordecai #2 is now level 19, and I am finding the combination between Sniper Rifle, SMG, and Shotgun to be quite satisfying. Basically, long range, medium range, and close range. That, and the bloodwing to help me out here and there :)

    Remember I have played only till level 10, I been trying to play with my friend but I cant so I havent played at all. So they might get better, I don't have any of that fancy stuff yet. Anyways...

    So I opened all the ports needed and still can't make or join a game with my friend. Anyone want to explain what that "Joinable" thing is at the bottom?

    [​IMG]

    It's listed as "No" for both him and me when we try and invite each other, we can invite but we time out. With my ports forwarded I should be able to host a game with him, but I can't :/ This is actually making me pretty upset, what the heck do the people do who know little to nothing about comps?

    97.1% >.< I really want to play this before I have to go out of town Fri.

    So how many weapons are there?

    Oh, and how graphically demanding is this game? It seems that it doesn't take a ton to max it out because of the graphical style. I'd be playing at 1920x1080 on my gaming rig and I always like to turn up the AA and whatnot, should it be playable?
