I Bet You Could Walk All Day In Shoes Like Those And Not Feel A Thing

by Rainier on Aug. 19, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

There's an overwhelming amount of announcements and assets coming out of GamesCom. It almost feels like there is more going on than at E3 this year.

Very sad to hear about Real Time Worlds and APB. Hopefully a solution can be found. After all the CrimeCraft drama, a lot of former players and friends have migrated over there, so it would be most unfortunate. A much-heard complaint is with the combat system, but it's more a matter of getting used to it.  The sheer amount of customization and in-game items (vehicles, guns, etc.) is mind-boggling and sure makes up for that.
