Totalbiscuit visits SOE re Planetside 2

I never realised that TB played Planetside 1 back in the early days and apparently he was on Werner
He was invited over to SOE to have a look at where PS2 is at and has posted a few comments over on http://www.planetside-universe.com
He has a bit of footage and expects to put it into a new video asap.
I think TB exposure is a good thing for the game, the more people that are made aware of it the better chance of those epic bridge battles!!

I saw MAXs, I filmed MAXs, I dunno when I Can release footage on MAXs because I believe they gave the exclusive on that to someone else, but I Do have footage of them. Did quite a bit of flying, the mossie is a ton of fun to fly around.

Played about with Magrider, feels nice, weighty but still floating. Shot down John Smedly with the front rapid-fire gun.
The driver controls the larger gun. The one I was using (there are variants remember) fired forward and was not a turret. It ripped other vehicles apart and fired quite slowly.
I was in the second seat when I shot John down. Passengers controls the smaller gun in that variant of the Magrider and it was effective AA and AI. Maingun was controlled by driver.
(does the Mag rotate as fast as the turrets on other tanks?) No it doesn't rotate as fast. Other tanks have an edge in that regard. However from what I saw it's evened out by the Magrider strafing and how hard thefront gun actually hits.

Driver controlled guns feel fine honestly.

Drove a prowler, it has quad-turret variant from what I saw in the customisation list (not modelled yet).
Crashed a few Liberators, more of a gunship now. Mossies/Reavers deadly to infantry on the ground but VERY flimsy at the moment.

Most awesome thing was night-fighting, looks incredible. Tracer fire, burster rounds, lighting is top notch. Nights are VERY DARK, use of nightvision, IR scopes and moving searchlights are on the cards.

It feels better than PS1. It feels like Planetside in scale, scope and combined arms combat, without the obvious restrictions of technology that plagued the original. There is no compromise to the FPS component in order to get the scale of the original.

I loved those bridge battles, they served no purpose whatsoever and you could go away and come back 4 hours later and they were still going.

You liked air warfare in BF3? you know the one where there is limited planes to fly and you have to queue up for them and hope you get one....

I logged in with my old ps credentials to sign up for beta and got a "ROFL WE ALREADY SIGNED YOU UP FOR BETA YO" message.

So the world is behaving as it is intended for once, where I get free shit.

Oh and teaming up with TB is a pro move by them if you ask me, he will instantly get them thousands upon thousands of rabid fanbois.
