Just pre order the game via the PSNS and now I'm in the beta to test drive this game out and like it so far. Sort of reminds me of Borderlands in some ways, but with different graphics and skill trees.
Beta's pretty tight so far (XBox 360 version here) - yeah, kind of a mix between Halo and Borderlands. A lot of similarities with mobs and weapons to Halo - swirelly homing bullets, weak-ass minions with a stronger "captain" ... but I like it. The "feel" of the game is a lot better than Halo and I really love the scenery. Lots of cool vistas to explore.
I am very curious to see how robust their servers are when day one hits. Right now it's pretty sweet with only a few hundred/thousand people using the game but when it's half a million or whatever (this game will sell, no doubt about it)...
I don't play games much anymore however I don't mind this game as I can jump on chat with friends and get my video game fix out of it. Got the season pass so I will be sticking with this game for a while now. I finally made it to lv20 lol.
Finally "IAmTricky" help me out with the weekly Heroic event and let me tell ya it was fucking tough. I think it almost took us about 2hr to finish it. I have to say once you get this game you soon realize it's a great concept. For sure they made a few design flaws like no system to team you up with other players which is my biggest beef. For a game that is purely online MP it should have some kind of party system.
