Firefall dev's 'fireside' chat

Red 5 founds League For Gamers, a true advocacy group photo
Red 5 founds League For Gamers, a true advocacy group
by Jim Sterling

Firefall developer Red 5 Studios has done nothing but impress the heck out of us with its strong anti-SOPA stance. Now, the team has gone above and beyond, founding its own non-profit advocacy group that aims to truly represent the rights of gamers and fight nasty legislation like SOPA and PIPA. 

League For Gamers intends to do what the ESA's hypocritical Video Game Voters Network can't -- represent every facet of the game industry in the fight against our freedoms. It hopes to attract gamers, developers and supporters and eventually establish itself as a true alternative to the Entertainment Software Association. 

Its first duty is to combat PIPA -- the Senate-flavored alternative to SOPA. 

This is an absolutely fantastic idea from a studio that's more than willing to put its money where its mouth is. I urge all of you to support this with all your might, so please join up and make this thing buzz. It is exactly what we need.

New Firefall trailer shows the Dreadnaught battleframe

Hands-on: Firefall photo
Hands-on: Firefall
by Daniel Starkey

The first thing pretty much everyone notices at this year's PAX Prime are the several dozen massive banner ads for Firefall, a free-to-play MMOFPS/TPS and the first project of Red 5 Studios. Firefall was first announced at last year's PAX Prime and playable earlier this year at PAX East

I got to play for an hour or so, and I came away feeling like it was a fusion of Unreal Tournmanet 2004 and Borderlands. There are a few different modes, including instanced eSports maps for the competitive folks, as well as a persistent universe that gives players dynamic missions based on what is going on in the game world.
