Upcoming free-to-play first-person MMO Firefall is quite the pretty package. There's a ton of core-shooting, complete with third-person mode should you feel like an out-of-body experience. There's PVE and PVP and some unique mechanics that will expand the world as the player base expands too.
Still, I can't help but feel like Mark Kern is using this opportunity to fulfill some nerdy fantasy! Sure, if I were in charge of a company and I had to get on video and talk about a game I'm developing, I might spend a little budget on a hologram... I might go a little overboard and buy myself a crown and a gold sceptor. Sure, I might hire someone who's only purpose is to kneel down and let me put my feet on them whenever I sit down.
Then I'd get fired. So... Instead... just give me a BETA KEY ALREADY!
