Hope some of you scored on that sale! Totally worth owning this game. Ideal for those times when you need some first person action AND a **** ton of laughs

I gave it an honest try during the free trial and I have to admit that I just don't have the patience to get past the learning curve in some games these days. *shrug* Especially in games that don't have a single player campaign, I just don't have the patience to be everyone's punching bag long enough to get to the point where I start making a contribution to my team's outcome other than "bring a buddy, it gives them someone else to shoot at". Plus, it doesn't help that I used to beat people with sticks while jumping about in medieval-esque armour for fun in real life, and now I have to relearn something.

It was fun, for a bit, but glad I didn't put any money into it, because I definitely wouldn't get even $8.50 back out of it.

Pro tip: use a mouse with more than two buttons... Big help for different attacks.

I have a multibutton mouse, remapped the controls to my liking (I started playing before WASD became THE one and only way to control FPS's, I've been using a modified ASDF map for a while now), and it's still just not for me. It's not a bad game, I just don't have the patience to get past it's learning curve, nor the time to commit to it. I suffer from VGADD, and have too many games to play as it is.
