    That sucks, im still on XP and lovin it.

    Luckily i don't care much about this game, yet it still encourages me more to go Windows 7 or Vista.

    I'm not entirely sure just what this game is. An FPS with zero gravity? Dude looks like an ODST with a jetpack. :)

    Does this mean we'll finally get to partake in the "Battle of Proxycon"?

    All this XP worship by some people was starting to get really weird.
    In kind of an erotic way.

    I may be wrong, but this game just screams of fancy eye-candy and gimmickery (zero gravity gameplay) without any real background story substance, to really get players to immerse into the game, that is more than any generic FPS.

    The price is right, but I'll wait for the reviews on this one.

    Did pong have a back story? Nope. Did people still play it cause its "fun"? Yes.

    I signed up for the betta, but waited Sooo long I eventually gave up and forgot about the whole thing. Now I have a new email address and wondering about whether or not to change it on my account with them is becoming more and more of a fading constitution.

    Played the beta and just pre-ordered the game, can't wait! :rockout:

    For 15 bucks its a pretty good deal considering they are going to add more to it after release.

    Do you know if a flightstick would work with this game? I think I'll pick it up.

    Reminds me of Unreal Tournament 2004 with anti gravity shoved on.

    I had the beta and it was alright, I didn't play it much though never appealed to me.

    I played in the beta, but there was NO ONE in the servers! Literally 20 open servers and only 3 people playing. I couldn't enjoy it at all.

    for those requirements i'd think it'd have better graphics than any game we've seen. As for it being multi-threaded i can't confirm or back up my claim but i don't see how it wouldn't be, futuremark knows pretty well how to make a program multi-threaded. I hope those are just beta screenshots cause those graphics aren't amazing as the sys requirements would suggest.

    Yeah this is a game that would need Crysis like graphics or a Crysis like Physics Engine to make it sell better. And I use Crysis not as in the Game but the hype.

    After playing for a few hours I would hardly call this game boring. It is actually very good, especially in full servers. For the price it is totally worth it. Of course this game takes a bit of getting used to but once you start to think zero gravity you can get very creative with the gameplay. as for a fightstick, I don't think the game supports them at the moment. That said, the standard controls are pretty intuitive.
