Tried this out a little yesterday. It definitely feels a lot like Global Agenda, but with an art style and humor more like Borderlands. The basic shooter stuff feels pretty polished but they have a long way to go content-wise. I couldn't even complete one of the first quests because it was bugged, so I just flew around shooting creatures for awhile and got bored. There's also some placeholder art and sounds, so it's definitely a very early beta. Not a surprise, since they stated as much in the video they sent along with the beta invite. I think once they get the content in place and the bugs fixed it could be a lot of fun.

My quest-stopping bug was fixed quite promptly so I was able to progress a little more. Another "fix" they made was to make the AI much more aggressive, so the game is now brutally hard right out the gate. I'm now in the middle of a sort of open-ended quest where I have to collect various resources, and there are multiple ways to do so. One of the resources is a crystal that basically serves as money in the game, so I can collect that just by killing things. There are also traditional resource nodes scattered about randomly that you can explode with a special bomb. But the most interesting way to collect the rarer stuff is to "scan" for hidden resources underground by way of a seismic hammer. Once you find something, you can call in a "thumper" which mines out the resources but also makes a lot of seismic disturbance that draws enemies to your location. So you have to defend the thumper, and the longer you defend it the more resources you'll get, but the more and larger enemies show up. If the thumper falls, you get nothing and have to craft another one. Here's a video of the mechanic in action:

Well, there's still Guild Wars 2... we can play that for another 4 minutes before you disappear for another month or two.

Last time I played, it seemed too limited in what you could do. Basically the same reason we stopped playing Global Agenda (lack of content) seems even worse here, unless it has come a very long way in a relatively short time. I might download it and check it out again at some point.

The claim is that they are opening up the rest of the world making it far bigger with more to do, but it does seem like "one of those" shooter MMOs where the only thing to do is shoot stuff...says Don T. Shoot...stuff.

So I tried it out again now that it's released... it's actually pretty good now. They added a new quest system that gives you a lot more stuff to do, and the world does look like it's significantly larger. It is pretty much just "go here, shoot this" type of stuff though.
