FPS Documentary

As we all know, Planetside hasn’t been doing to well. My roommate got an e-mail from them recently letting him reactive his account for a free month or something. I, however, got no such e-mail. Hmph. Their official forums seem to be planning a bit more.

Cross-dressing genres

Friday, December 30th, 2005

While the news of this game might not be entirely new to anyone, I’d like to explore the idea behind it some. MMOFPS. The mere acronym boggles my mind. I played Planetside, found it fun and enjoyable, but most people didn’t seem to care too much about it and the game never really caught on. […]
