Time to nit pick. (Im running low on Nits)

This is supposed to be a list of 10 things that make them different from every other MMO, but it looks like all of the others out there to me.

1. Grave robbing is a perfectly acceptable form of resource harvesting
(Have they even played a MMORPG? We spend half our time in one tomb or another)

2. We have Bigfoot
(Common theme in most games. Heck WoW has whole Yeti Classes, much less 1 Bigfoot)

3. And Chupacabra!
(Not as common as Yeti, but still overdone)

4. You can run around with an assault rifle while wearing samurai armor
(City Of Heroes/Villans beat you to this)

5. Dual wielding garden trowels is a viable weapon choice
(What game doesn't have a stupid weapon that you can use? I like to kill people with a fishing pole in WoW BGs)

6. Monkeytown
(WoW. Cow Town.)

7. You can craft and wear 3D glasses, monocles and top hats
(Again beaten by CoH/CoV, come to think of it I think you can do that in WoW as well)

8. You can talk to "Ballsy Frank"
(Wow NPCs with silly names. NO WAY!)

9. OMG WAFFLZ!
(Yeah, sorry most games have leet speak in them.)

10. Hide Pants: Something you wear, not something you do.
(What like say Leather armor?)

Woot! I got all the Nits I need now. Thanks!

factions certainly sound interesting

Really?

Another pathetic article put out by Massively. I was looking forward to seeing what ten unique features Fallen Earth would have. Not a list of crap that comes standard with every MMO.

Maybe it's just a bad week at Massively, but I've been disappointed a lot recently.

I've been following this game, hoping it succeeds. But the visuals in the video they released look even worse than Darkfall's. And the dev team introductions on their forums give the impression that this is a very inexperienced team.

It'd be supper if they could release a good, successful product. Just don't pin your hopes on this one. A more watchful attitude is warranted.

It's graphics put me off from trying it. If you arn't going to bother with making a nice art style and putting effort into the world and character design then I will have no itnerest in exploring it or developing a character I don't like the look of.

Realistic is only a good look when your engine is upto date and well.... Fallen Earth looks like like a bad 2003 Source Mod.
