I gotta admit, the more I've played the more I've enjoyed it. Really interested in seeing where they take this and hopefully we can get some more MMORPG's on the console.

Its not very MMORPG to be honest. Since there is no tank/healer/DPS roles any cooperation or collaboration becomes little more than people shooting the same target while saying nothing. There is no strategy to any encounter beyond shoot/reload/shoot more.

Ill get my 60 bucks worth of enjoyment out of it but I cant see me playing it for more than a a couple of months.

Technically they do have the pieces in place for DPS/healer/tank...just not a real need for them. They need to start gearing content towards that stuff if they want to keep PC players interested. Console players probably don't care one way or the other about that since this is the only game of it's kind on console.

MMORPG probably isn't the best description though...MMO would be better.

Just beat the final boss, Nim (well for now anyway...I'm sure more will be added). He puts up a good fight. Took me 5 tries and I had to finally respec to beat him.

How long did you play to get to the end game content? That was a major problem with DUCO when it came out on the PS3, didn't take that long to get to the end game content and there wasn't that much end game content available near the launch. It's a lot better now, but still not great.

I played quite a bit...probably put in about 25 hours or so. Well that isn't quite a bit for an MMO I suppose but I still have stuff to do...like the pursuits and gaining rep, etc. Plus they will be adding new content, not sure about the schedule on that though. They really need to iron out all the bugs before they do that though. It's still a little rough for some people. I've only encountered one major bug but was able to find a work around.

I was surprised by this game actually, because I actually didn't like it when I first started playing it, but it does get addicting. It's not for everyone though. If you're looking for an RPG, this isn't one. It's a solid third person shooter though, with tons of weapons and mod's. Give it a try if you're into third person shooters.

I got the Black Dodge Challenger finally. A few of the races were bugged so it was a real pain finishing this pursuit. The game was shaving 3-4 seconds off of my times. I have all of the pursuits done that can be done, now I just have to wait until Trion patches it and fixes the damn bugs.

Anybody else pick this up?  I've played the hell out of this game.  I seriously didn't think I'd play it this long.  PvP is pretty fun.  They still have issues with bugs and glitches though.  That's the only thing that is bad about this game right now.  Supposedly most of the bugs are going to be fixed in the next patch, but we'll see.  Also they are getting ready to introduce charge blades, like from the TV show...that's going to be awesome with a Blur melee build.
