Just when you thought Priestys vehicular design skills could not get any more awesome. He pulls out the damn JP mobile. Well impressed!

Instancing is where the game will create a set of multiple instances of an area.
Group 1 => Instance 1
Group 2 => Instance 2

These instances are completely self-contained and group 1 can't enter instance 2. The same goes for group 2, they can't enter instance 1.

Main criticism I would have to give about this game is that it's near impossible to have a fair mission, one side will normally always have better gear/out-number the other.

I've been interested in this game for quite a while but don't think I could justify the cash.

Here's a 40 minute play through from Giant Bomb featuring former Gamespot editors Jeff Gerstman and Ryan Davis, whom some of you might remember.

Click the little square bottom right to make big.


I love those guys. :D

Looks like something I would have fun with for a while but would ultimately get bored with. Might check it out at a local cyber cafe. (Do they still call them that? lol)

http://www.pongcentral.co.uk/ It's beside Tescos on the Lisburn road. They have one on the Falls road too. There used to be GameTheWorld as well but I'm not sure if they're still going.

news bump:
bit-tech.net wrote:The Scotland-based developer of MMO APB, Realtime Worlds, has entered administration, according to sources within the company.

Alarm was raised after a staff member tweeted the news, with anonymous sources within the company later confirming that they had been told to clear their desks by Friday.

Sources speaking to Eurogamer said that the news was broken to staff by CEO Gary Dales. The US offices of the company are also thought to be closing, while senior management are understood to have had a day's warning via email.

The news, while sad, doesn't come as much of a shock – just last week Realtime Worlds was reported to have made as many as 60 developers redundant overnight, starting fears that the company was in trouble.

Further information coming out of the developer suggests that a core, skeleton team may be kept on in order to maintain APB, the latest project to escape the studio.


Source

so basically, seems like if you have a subscription don't renew it (imo) until you find out what's happening.

Realtime Worlds games company goes into administration

Pioneering Dundee-based computer games company Realtime Worlds has gone into administration putting hundreds of jobs at risk.

The company, founded by the creator of Lemmings and Grand Theft Auto, is based at a former jute mill in the city.

It employs about 250 people and was seen as one of the biggest players in the UK computer games market.

Its newest title, online role-playing game APB, launched a few weeks ago but has experienced "lacklustre" demand.

TC- you sir, are one pain in the ass!
Imp- you've been offline for a while and you dont have a life. i am confused.
Kan- War is annoying to play against I will agree, but he isn't cheating.

I live in Dundee and I knew RTW was too shit to work for. All their grant money spent on one game, and they chose not to continue a license given to them by Microsoft.
