AWWWW J'YEAH IT'S FREE GAMES TIME!

All Points Bulletin : Reloaded




Currently in Open beta and good times if you like third person shooters (over the shoulder).  It's kind of like Grand Theft Auto IV's online play... sort of... You choose either Criminal or Enforcer and then fight it out faction on faction in missions.  Groups can consist of up to 4 people and the game is best played with friends.

Head here ----> http://www.gamersfirst.com/apb/

Join Gamersfirst (they have a whole slew of free-to-play games) and download their game client.  After that just download the APB: Reloaded client and fire it up!

Hellgate London : Ressurection



A first person shooter MMO that was picked up and 'resurrected' (d'oh ho ho) by a Korean company (T3) and the closed beta started today, June 3rd, however keys are very easy to come by and the good people at T3 even link you to partner sites giving away keys like candy!

Head here ---> http://hellgate.t3fun.com/home/home.aspx

Sign up for a T3 account and then download the client. 

I haven't fired this up yet as I'm in the process of DL'ing everything but hey, it's free so why not try it out?

So did they ever post an official changelist for APB?

Played it in beta and during Pay2Play, quit after a bit because it was the same missions over and over

Hellgate London was a pretty kickass game.

Ah well you might go back and read the APB:R Blog from this post onward to the present day as they've gone through alot of changes:

http://apbreloaded.gamersfirst.com/2011/02/end-of-week-15-update-closed-beta.html

-

The long and short of it is this: The TTK (Time To Kill) is alot shorter than it was in RTW's Retail release. 

Let's take the Ntec (The AKS-47, if you will) it killed in 8 shots in RTW's APB.  This base TTK along with Monolith (+health) and Survivor (-damage taken) made it 9 shots (or more depending on range) lead to some people being perceived as bullet tanks that just wouldn't die.  Gamersfirst has changed this so the Ntec is now a 6 shot kill and the entire concept of upgrades has been changed.

There is no more Survivor, however Monolith is still in the game in the form of Kevlar Implants.  Kevlar Implants has a firect health upgrade of 10% per level (3 levels) and also has a penalty of movement speed reduction that goes up with the amount of health you gain.  Kevlar I slows your ability to accelerate to a full sprint slightly while Kevlar II actually impairs your top run speed in addition to the acceleration reduction and Kevlar III slows you down even further than Kevlar II. 

With this new, lower TTK model and modifications not being direct upgrades without an associated downside the game is actually really fun without having that, "I just fired a whole mag at that guy and he didn't die" feel.

I HIGHLY recommend APB:R to anyone who likes to shoot others in an online environment.

Hellgate, though, has not aged well.  They've kind of dumbed down the graphics a bit so a wider audience could have access to it but the whole Hellgate experience just isn't that great.  I don't know if it's just me or what but it just doesn't seem as fun anymore, but hey, it's free so nothing lost here.

The difference between a liberal and a conservative is that the liberal will ask you to vote republican while a conservative gives facts and asks for you to decide

Hahaha I'll give you that it has a very dry tutorial (and after the tutorial the popup window does say, "HEY JOIN A REAL DISTRICT NOW") and at no point in time does it say, "The clothing kiosks in Social are there for you to change your clothes and stuff,"  but with a little prodding about in the districts you can figure it out pretty quick.

The most fun I honestly had in APB was trolling other people's car chases.

It's pretty easy to see when 2 or more cars are all involved in the same mission, just spinning out a few random cars here or there had hilarious results.
