Firefall

5 posts in this topic

Good day fellow AJSA members.

I want to talk about a game i have played in soon over a year. Namely the game Firefall, i have been playing it since closed beta (it is now in open beta) and have been paying close attention to it.

When i first started playing it it was bugged as hell and barely any content at all. But i immediately saw a huge potential in this game. 

Though the game is still in development hell and content still take a long time to come out, it has changed a lot since the early beta days. 

It is fast paced,open world, smooth as hell, dynamic events, it's set in a beautiful tera formed world, it got one of the most sexy UI's i have a ever seen in a mmo and naturally encourages team work.

 

So you might be thinking: what is this game all about and what do i do in it?

Basically this is what has happened lore wise in the game (bare bone version of the lore btw, there are a lot more than what i am telling here).

Humanity has found a new resource called crystite, which they use to power a enormous space ship. This space ships original purpose was to explore distant worlds. But when they try making a jump into hyperspace an mysterious things happens. The entire ship powers down instead and is sent crashing down towards earth. But the failed jump summons a mysterious storm out of the warp, which continues to envelop the entire earth. Soon the entire earth is covered with this strange warp storm, all except the crash site of the space ship.

For some reason the so called SIN generators keeps the storm at bay. so the crew and surviving members of the crash site (which formerly was the Brazilian city of Copacabana ) starts setting up sin generators. But they are soon attacked by creatures emerging from the storm. It's is still unsure if these are all alien invaders or terra formed creatures.

So now all that remains of humanity is pressed into a small corner and struggles to survive by mining all the resources they can.

I hope people is happy with my short lore version ;)

 

As a player it is pretty simple what you need to do. Pick a battleframe (class), start getting resources to you can get tech upgrades and push back the storm and its alien invaders. You can get resources in many various ways like pvp, completing dynamic quests/events, defending human settlements, beating back alien invasions and of course thumping.

Thumping is one of the best options to get resources. it is essential a large mining drill you call down and starts extracting the resources from the ground, but this provokes the terra formed wild life. Just imagine a larger version of the thumper from Dune, but instead of sandworms you get dinosaurs, aliens from starship troopers and large rolling shrimp monsters.

The thumpers differs in size and quality and teamwork is also essential when taking on larger thumpers. When the largest ones is deployed shit tends to get a bit crazy :P

I think that about covers most of it ;)

The game is currently in open beta, so anyone who wants can join in.

Thank you once again for taking time to read my thread :D

Here is the link to the cinematic for those who wish to see it.

yeh theres a bunch of us who played Firefall before

 

the game is sweet, really, i love the Recon's outfit tho i dont like the fact most outfits are half-naked or stuff like that

 

anyways its not a bad game indeed, its just most of us who played it didnt really get into it, pretty much waiting for tons of content to be released just like we did with Planetside 2  :huh:

I tired it out in beta for a few days and came to really dislike the game....just everything felt weak.

One of my favorite games and one of the only games I have supported in many many years. The only other game I spent money on is Warframe. 100ish on Firefall and 150 for Warframe.

 

I truly hope they can get everything fixed up and polished in FF as it has a ton of potential, especially for a community like the AJSA. Haven't played it in about a year and I can't run it very well anymore. I need more ram and probably a better cpu but I think ram is holding me back.
