    Yes repulsors are hell fun. When you hear the sheila on Pulse saying "Repulsor", and your shield is below 25% your fate is pretty much sealed.

    Going back, once more, to that early spec sheet it looked like they had eliminator planned originally. In fact a lot of stuff on that sheet never saw the light of day which is probably why the game was so cheap.

    I'd to guess there were technicalities with it that would have caused even more delay. Would it not kill the frame rate as well what with 100 weapons going off at once?

    The silence from SL isn't necessarily a good thing either, maybe I missed it but has anyone stated how well the game did? Last time I looked at the record table for Venita K forward single race records there were over 192,000 entries now some might be more than one account on the same Playstation but is that good? I really have no idea what is considered a success for a download only game.

    yeah there will be multiple accounts for one purchase, but there may also be people who have just downloaded the game and never connect to upload their times, so it`s hard to say. But 190,000 (ish) x 11.99 would be, erm, a LOT, I think, when you consider there are no materials to distribute and there seems to have been very little promotional costs compared to a full price game.

    Anyway that`s guesswork, on topic I don`t see much value in Eliminator mode if it`s not multiplayer. From my point of view, in Pulse it was all explosions and not really much interesting gameplay. Then of course there are people for whom almost every multiplayer race is Eliminator already.

    I enjoyed it in Pulse, it was a more enjoyable way for me to get huge amounts of team loyalty points at once instead of playing Zone mode which I'm not fond of.

    Same here, Rapier...I didn't like Zone until HD came out...now, I absolutely LOVE it! The graphics, sound, and sound effects REALLY draw me into it...it's one of my favourite modes now.

    But, in Pulse...yeah, I use (still play it, when I'm at work, lol) Eliminator mode to rack up the loyalty points pretty quickly...and in a more fun way.

    If it hasn't hit a million downloads by now I'd be shocked. This is the best PSN game available for the money. I could pay $60 for it.

    SSSHH. Don't let Sony hear you say that; they're greedy enough already.
