Rockstar rarely lets me down, I'll give it a chance.

I agree. Even though we didn't get RDR on PC, R* very rarely releases a dud. So I have high hopes for this. Plus, I always wanted multiplayer for Max Payne (The Specialists HL1 mod ftw!) so this is great news finally for me!

Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Counter-Strike, Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Portal, and Team Fortress)

Newsflash, if you are a corporation, you better know what franchises you created and which you didn't.

Because TF and CS are not by Valve , TF was a mod for Quake, and CS a mod for HL. Done by modders, NOT by valve.

Valve bought the mod teams, and the IPs for those games/mods as I'm sure you know. Therefore they can say whatever they want, since they own the names and all that good stuff.

Looks great, count me in!

It's scripted becasue they are tying to give an example of the story and gameplay. The progression had to make sense in the context of the presentation.

Complaining becasue a preview is scripted is like going to a movie and complaining you don't get to make the decisions and choose the paths during the movie.

we're complaining that the game is scripted not the presentation (of course its going to be set up to show off the game)

the gameplay itself looks like you don't really have any control over the game, it might as well be a movie

edit: that was the first 15 minutes of the game apparantly not an example.

Actually that part of the game is from the end of the 3rd level of the game. If you watch the extended cuts interview with Levine on GT, he says that explicitly.

Sweet. Don't know why exactly, but I'm rather looking forward to this game for some reason.

I hate when people say that. "Oh gawd, I don't know why but I want this."

Then why are you even gaming?

It's being made as a modern day equivalent to the Dark Alliance games, the devs even admitted to being BG:DA fans and they want to recreate that same type of casual gameplay with this one.

Educate yourself.
Yeah LOC get your shit together! Don't come in here with your anti-gaming attitude and your uneducated drivel! It's seriously offensive. Like seriously!

I'm so sorry! Please forgive me!

they need to fix that stupid load time at the start of every match when custom outfit are loading for each player. or at least give the option to disable viewing of custom outfits.

This is actually fixed (or changed?) in the newest version. I was shocked to see it gone myself. I got killed and was like, here comes the stuttering stupid nonsense as it tries to load everyone else's customization's etc. But nope, they are gone!

i stopped playing the beta last month. when did this latest patch come? people i play with say it is still there. the same problem exists with battlefield heroes and that game has been out for a long time now.

Not sure when it got patched. I played yesterday and noticed it was gone then (and that was the latest patch as far as I know).

Here's a tip for this game guys.

The PC version has NO online co-op at all, just like the previous port did not. Isn't that nice? It does have local co-op, but that's it.

Plus, from what I played of the demo, it's horrid.

Wow... ANOTHER MMO. How much random unspent monthly income do games companies really think their target audiences have, let alone free time?

Seriously, there can only BE so many financially successful MMOs concurrently, publishers. Pull your heads out of your asses.

The game is F2P.

That was a pretty cool in game trailer. The graphics looked awesome & the music was pretty sick. I'll be getting this on day 1.

The music was sick alright. Frank Sinatra is turning in his grave.

SP looks pretty good to me though. Didn't care for the MP demo all that much. But then again, it is just a demo.

Hmmm some weird issues with the MP side of DoW2 on Onlive. There are only 3 options for MP games, 1v1, 2v2, and 3v3. The version on steam currently has 6 options I believe including several FFA options. Plus the pool of games you connect with must be unique to onlive because it only ever found 1 game and after about 5 min of searching I was still the only apparent game on there. (said it found 1 game, which I believe was me)

I booted up the steam version to see if there was just no one on and it immediately found 10 or so games.

Hopefully they will be able to sync these games so it's all the same online community.

Nope, multiplayer will be separate for the foreseeable future with Online. It's one of the major major downsides of the service imo.

I agree. The devs are extremely open with us, and are really listening so far.

I just hope they add some sort of save game system down the line that's all.

Is this game any good? Anyone tried it yet?

One of the best games I've played in a long, long time. Also one of the most innovative ones and a damn funny one to boot. This is a must-have for any PC gamer.

QFT.

Awesome little gem of a game. There are some MP issues (some with work arounds though)and stability issues overall. But it's still a fun game, with very innovative gameplay, and it's funny to boot.

For the $10 asking price, it's a freaking steal if you ask me.

Oh and anyone who says "Oh it uses XNA no wonder it looks like crap" - it doesn't look like crap.

Active and quite popular. UT currently has around 1,500 players online. Usually it has a bit more than that, sometimes less.

It's been in beta for a while now and it launches in like a week or something I think.

The game looks amazing, that's for sure. Didn't care much for the UI or the beginning mission/tutorial. But that's just me I'm sure. Most people I know in the beta or who've played the game like it quite a bit. I'm sure Blue probably posted about it a few times here or there, and if not I'm sure he knows about the game....maybe heh.
