As far as I'm concerned nobody has done an MMOFPS right, yet.

So I'm glad to see anybody jump in the game.

@Pingles Face of Mankind was close, but the shooting gameplay itself was so mediocre.

You've never played Shattered Galaxy, I take it. Every MMORTS I hear about gets the same question from me: how similar is it to that game?

I read too fast. MMOFPS, not MMORTS. Disregard my comment.

@wufiavelli He does have the right to defend himself, even if someone says something about him negative and he is not here.

The real news here is that Derek Smart still has a job.

My thoughts exactly. Anything with his name attached to it will be in instant "no thank you" game.

How is this even an FPS? All the pictures I saw were from a third person perspective. Which is not necessarily a bad things as there are good games from that perspective, but the claim of being a FPS just has me confused at this point.

some screenshots look similar to global agenda but I take it it's quite different. will be interesting to see how this fares against planet side 2.
and if mr. smart has become a bit more "smart" from developing battlecruiser.

Tsk, Tsk, so Derrick is at it again.

Next year, five more screenshots!

Ten years from now, an actual (though now terribly dated) game!

My skepticism comes not from his poor personal reputation as much as the fact that the previous FPS game with Smart's name slapped on it (All Aspect Warfare) was an absolute mess. The fact that his goal for this game is "confusion and mayhem" doesn't help.

Hey, he has some excuses! I mean, it couldn't be his fault! Did he mention he has money?

@CaseyTheBrash

That would imply that people still buys his games, which seems unlikely in this day and age.

I have yet to see a game with his name on it that is actually good and not a broken mess.
