How did you get the Planetside 2 key? I subscribed for one a while ago never got a thing.
Yeah same here. Pretty keen on giving it a go since everyone is going on about it
They have an alpha squad up if you're desperate for a key. It's a little pricey, but worth it imo. Supports the game and gets you some nice goodies. Especially since the Aussie server opened last night. I need some competition, was ranked 4th on the server last night *flex*
Also Dav, I'm throwing in another point for Chivalry. If you can only get one, get this one. It's hard to adjust to if you're coming from mount & blade, but once you do, it's fun as hell watching your enemies head roll down a hill into the water and thinking "I just did that!"
Warfighter, I gotta say, the only thing that looks fun about it is the MP, but again, it's very well trodden ground for the most part and (for me) def not worth the money when I can get a similar itch scratched with Blops2.
Ace of Spades is almost like battlefield minecraft edition, though it doesn't have vehicles. The massive battles with people tunneling under your base are amazing though. I believe it's currently free to download outside of steam, so you can grab it now if you're keen on it. Has a few good Aussie servers.
Also, War Z is a similar pace to Day Z (and it's very rough-edged). If you can get a friend code from someone, have a crack for a while and get used to it, though I'm guessing if you didn't like DayZ, you probs won't enjoy this much either.
I actually prefer it to Day Z because the atmosphere is more intense and it's prettier, but it's still alpha so it can be unappealing to some. But the tension when the "scary music" (that apparently signals a nearby player) starts up suddenly while you're creeping through a town filled with zombies is incredible. I don't think I had that feeling in DayZ for more than the first day. I've had it for a couple of weeks in War Z.
