  • Blacklight Retribution

    Has anyone given this game a try yet? The Open Beta period just started this past Monday and the game is really a lot of fun. It's a fast-paced shooter, quick-twitch skill based, but there's a lot of teamwork and strategy involved as well. For such an action packed game it still has a nice methodical feel to it. The other core aspect of the game is the customization and the ability to define your own class.
    Once the game picks up there should be a lot of clan battles and events going on, so it would be nice to see a TG outfit represented over there.

      They're fairly big, but you'll find that CQC combat is most typical when playing. Though, there are sniper load-outs that you can use and some maps that lend their selves well to sniping. But, I wouldn't expect any engagements over ~50-80 meters.

      Here's a nice vid I found discussing some of the tactics to TKOTH.

        I can't like it. I gave it a try as it seemed kinda 2142ish. I do like the power body armor (name escapes me atm) thing being much like a walker. But the whole F2P microtransaction/rent stuff for a day model is a big turn off.

          Initially I didn't like the micro-transactions either, but it's pretty easy to perm unlock the gear you want with GP. Plus, with each level you get a bonus pack that includes various equipment that you can unlock for 3 days. So as long as you hit one level every 3 days (which is also easy) you'll have plenty of good equipment to play with. In the meantime you'll be building GP until you can afford perm.

              I just downloaded it and will give it a try. Anyone else still playing it? I imagine, that you will need a lot of TG minded player to turn this game into a fun thing instead of a public server fragfest

                I was thinking about it as I like futuristic shooters, but I'm not really a fan of twitch based shooters.

                  Currently trying to register for this game, having some issues with it. I've just sent an e-mail to support so we shall see what comes of it.

                  From what I've seen so far (mostly TB's vids) this game looks surprisingly good.

                    I've played a little of it since I went on Steam. I really like the Ghost in the Shell-esque / Cyberpunk setting, and the way the weapons handle feels nice and unique, particularly with the higher hip spread, higher spread on full auto, and lower ADS move speed. I'm not a fan of "renting" unlocks though. That's part of what got me sick of Warrock several years back. At least they give you the option to permanently unlock an attachment (for a higher cost), but it still just feels lame to me. There's also a lack of coordination in pub play, as there just aren't the mechanics in place to assist your teammates that there is in the Battlefield games for example. CTF is a little better I've noticed, as most players do a very good job of covering the device carrier, but everything else just feels like TDM.

                    That being said, I'm curious to see how it is when played with friends or other TGs.

                        I got my account sorted out, definitely up for a few games with TG'ers if there is interest. Steam name is 'paintscratcher'.

                        I've only played a few games thus far, but from what I have seen up to this point the game is surprisingly good. Not sure about the sounds though, the guns I've used so far sound annoyingly underpowered. Even the hard suit sounds like its firing peanuts, minor gripe but none the less.

                        Has anyone managed to get the friend system to work? Me and a buddy were trying to get ourselves into a game using the system and ended up resorting quick refreshing the server browser.

                          ingame Name is FoxInsanity, feel free to add me ingame :) Almost lvl 10 by now and already got a Scope and a Weapon perma unlocked. Game is fun if you play it with friends but every other game mode than TDM leaves me in a situation where I permanently ask myself what my team is doing here and if they do not understand any other game mode than TDM.
                          Looking forward to play this title with TG.

                              I'm in BLR as well. Name is Greyed (natch). Liking it so far. I, too, wasn't too keen on the rental but, really, at just shy of 200 per match and premade weapons at 200 for a day you basically can keep a premade unlocked until you build up something you want. Even then I've had a blast doing what I did in the early days of BF2142. I was 2 years too late to the party and joined TG to call home. What's a soldier with 0 unlocks to do? Pick up someone else's. ;)
