    Yeah, saw these on other gaming sites recently. Kinda high reqs.

    Although they're going to have a tough time releasing this with all the other games coming out at the moment.

    There's just too much else going on for me to even consider getting this right now.

    Mate of mine has purchased in, he claims it's bloody fantastic!!

    The thing that bugs me with games like these is that they have the potential to break the market, but due to poor marketing, you don't find out about it until it's released and or someone mentions it.

    Got this on the weekend and it looks like a good MP,had a couple of games with Flexx and its pretty full on trying to fight with zero gravity.
    Any other toggers got this and want to jump on TS or vent and give it a run let me know.

    I have it and I think it is a bit of fun, however....

    I can't work out how to accurately shoot, beats me how people can get like 20 kills and only one or two deaths. I can't even break even on a kill / death ratio.

    While flying about you seem to only be able to spray bullets and hope, although you can use zoom and fire a single shot which then throws you around from the force of the shot, so you can't afford to miss, and it isn't very steady trying to fire under zoom, while moving.

    It's ok for a hit n giggle play, and probably a lot more fun with some mates.

    Landing on solid ground increases accuracy especially with the zoom, but also makes you a sitting duck too.

    Movement through the air is slow but so much fun flying about.

    Very simple game with very limited options, but fun nonetheless.

    Any tips on improving shot accuracy (actually killing enemy)?

    p.s. When installing the install said my O.S. was not a valid version for the game, yet it plays fine. Also every time I start the game it says it isn't a valid O.S. for the game, yet continues and plays. System is Vista, and perhaps because I haven't applied the latest SP to vista.

    Yeah I get same message (Vista64 SP2) but it all loads and plays OK,I was thinking it would be great with players on TS on a Friday night having a few bevies.
    From what I could work out the emps are where a lot of the kills come from,floating like a stunned mullet waiting to be shot,I also spotted a lot of players standing upside down under ledges taking out players while they are defending

    Agreed its very difficult to shoot accurately in zero gravity. I think once flying around can be achieved as well as if you were walking/running as in a standard shoot em up, the kills will come. Great graphics though.
    My guest passes are sent, Woody, Ned & Drac...come on down.....;)

    Had a run last night and the 'local servers' were quite empty

    Tip....if you hit the home button it powers down your suit,making you helpless,but you cant be seen very easy (not glowing) so find a good hiding place power down and shoot enemies as the come in to cap the flag.It takes a few secs to power up though so you need to move locations

    Played a three day trial thanks to the awesome Astrospud and i couldn't like it. I consider myself ok at FPS' but this knocked my down a few pegs. Lucky to be 1/10 KDR while the guys on the other side of the map headshotting while flying fast and getting KDR 20/1. Unload on someone next to me and im lucky to get one hit one them. Oh i sucked so bad.
