Massively covers massively multiplayer games, not just of the RPG variety. I don't see the term MMORPG being used to describe this title.

Your absolute ignorance and refusal to look at anything outside your "RPG-centric MMO" is humorous, THAC0. Directly from globalagenda.com:

"Overall, we consider the game to be an Action-based Shooter MMO. The game offers the fluid gameplay mechanics of a multi-player shooter, with elements of character progression, territory control and economy drawn from the MMO genre. The gameplay includes both player-vs-evironment and player-vs-player content, but all of it is fast-paced aImagend highly engaging and designed to get you into the action quickly, while forever learning to master new skills.

However, Global Agenda is NOT a typical MMO in many respects so please read this section carefully to figure out if it is the game for you.

Elements of a typical MMO that are NOT in Global Agenda:

* a large, seamless world to explore
* quest givers
* open world PvP or PvE
* elves

If you consider any of these items to be must-haves within your MMO, we may not be the game for you."

Need your seamless world, quest givers, or Elves? World of Warcraft is -----------------------> That way

The game looks interesting, particularly in the light that you dont have to pay to play the most basic content, but I think Ill wait for a weekend steam pricedrop before trying it, unfortunately I comes out aroudn the same time as Mass Effect 2, and when pitted up agaisnt that game, its not even a choice. :p

It looks really polished and gameplay looks fun, but they really need to dummy down graphics for huge epic battles that veteran Planetside players yearn for. I still can't believe Planetside is king of the mountain for mmofps after all these years...

I will never pay a monthly fee for a smaller match size than BF2, TF2 and Quakewars offer. Hopefully Blizzard has something up their sleeve, sounds like
even Dust will have a much smaller player cap compared to what
Planetside offers 8(.

Developers should realize they can draw in a larger crowd with a couple slower paced classes that can contribute to the fight. There is no way I could ever get my wife to try a fast paced game like GA even though she loves to combat engi and cloak in planetside.

This game sounded like it had a ton of potential to be an awesome Faction vs Faction game. Then I read that the biggest fights were only going to be 10v10, what's "Massive" about that? TF2 has bigger fights then that. What a missed opportunity, they should have had open Faction vs Faction and then advertised 100 vs 100 as a selling point.

I hear it's a very polished game though.

Your Right! I demand more TF2 and COD coverage on Massively!

They might as well. Between Global Agenda's 10v10 pvp and STO's 40-50 instance limits, MMO's just aren't as massive as they used to be.

Looking forward to release and reviews of this game so I can evaluate the finished product.

But I agree with a few other posters that if I am playing an MMO of any kind I'm looking for bigger battles than I can find in Deathmatch FPS'.

Just because i don't want to be such a troll and i feel like I'm being a nuisance...
I do have to say it look like one really well polished and cool FPS. I'll probably give it a try.

Let me get this straight: 10 vs 10 third-person shooter? Oh hell no!
