    First of all a video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UgCKs0w7RI

    When I found out about this game in february I thought it looked pretty cool. I really liked the massive open dynamic world they spoke of. I requested a beta key and in april I got one. I played it for a month but it was just too beta with not enough of the world to explore. I could only explore copa cabana at the time.

    So today I redownloaded the game and plan on trying it again. I have decided to bring some of you with me. I have two beta keys available.

    All you have to do is tell me why the game looks good to you. You must also have 250 posts or more and and have been a member since at least may 2012. Winner will be chosen with random.org next week on the 24th.

    Wow, lot of reasons I would like to try this. One being the fact that it has a huge world to explore. Also as with most of the games I own or have played, I love shooting sh1t LOLOL. Seems like there is a lot of flying and tons of objects to check out in the game.

    Very awesome looking game to be honest.

    Both use cel-shaded art style. Any other reasons beyond ascetics?

    I think the game looks pretty good myself. It seems like a nice mix of Gears of War tps and Borderlands style. I think the switch between tps and fps is a pretty nice touch too, something rare. And to top it all off, I can appreciate how, judging from what I saw, the game doesn't concentrate on over the top gore, just some nice alien guts.

    Someone on yt said its an MMO of sorts, like an fpsmmo, which sounds like fun. It looks like something I could get into.

    The Firefall game reminds me a lot of Borderlands, and i had some great times with that game. I'm really looking forward to Borderlands 2, but playing a game like that in an MMO setting (I'm a HUGE MMO fan) and the additional PvP aspect makes me really, really excited for this game!

    Wow, I just now looked up this game, I hadn't heard of it before. It looks pretty cool, I like the whole style and of course am a massive fan of open worlds. Also the shot of a minigun taking down a giant crab thing, lol.

    This looks like only mulitplayer. Is that right or is it compaign?

    I love the futuristic looks. Open world is great. I love open world compared to just set paths to walk on. Kinda dumb jmo. If its not multi, I'd give it a shot as I'm not to good at multi lol.

    I was watching the video and kinda got into it. I caught myself moving my mouse around to change the view lol.

    I agree with Pops here. Linear games get very tiresome. Having an open world, much like Oblivion and Skyrim, make a game that much more enjoyable in my opinion. It gives the game more depth and enables the player to start the game over and over without the basic same ending or story line as he or she is playing the game.

    There is no campaign, techincally. It does have missions you can follow to do some kinda story. It is a massive open world mmo

    So its more of an open mmo and not a co-op multi like COD? That 'll be cool.

    Thanks. I actually may of forgot about this. I got an email because of your reply.

    Note that this is the beta and is not feature complete. The full game will be awesome though. You can play PvE and roam the open dynamic world. There is going to be dynamic events that require everyones help to fight off (insert hoard), or do something or another. There is also a competitive PvP mode. I wasn't a fan of that personally, and I was really bad at it.

    shall be joining me in copa cobana and any other place the firefall devs have now since released.


    Random.org favors you today. Pm me your emails and I will have your beta key sent. There should be a download link in the email you receive. I will be downloading again myself too, as soon as I get my computer working. I want to see the progress they have made in the last few months.
    stinger608 and manofthem say thanks.
