Fallen Earth tidbits.

I haven't spent as much time with Fallen Earth as I would like to have, but so far I am enjoying the game. Ultimately it's the sandbox openness of the game that I really like, among a few other things. Alik on the MMO voices podcast said something to the effects of it's the feeling of being able to do anything you want without having to be lead by the hand from quest to quest.

But I do have one complaint, and that is the combat. I actually think the combat quite neat and can be fun if everything is running smoothly. I am experiencing a bit of frustration right now using the crossbow at close range because mobs have been warping some around my guy. The bigger problem is the clunky way to switch weapons. Instead of using a crossbow at close range I should be using a melee weapon, but's such a pain so switch weapons.

It's just a minor complaint and it's not enough to ruin the game for me.

If and when I ever get my main PC running again, FE is definitely on my radar.

I should check in game, but I think this will help you. To switch from one weapon to another, Just do a CTRL + mouse while scroll up are down. I hope this will help you enjoy the game better.

Hey Alik, thanks for the comment. I actually remapped the weapon keys to the number pad on the keyboard, works so much better for me.
