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've been lucky enough to have no problems in single player. This game is a hoot; there's something new and entertaining around every corner. And good lord, what that blacksmith made with just a paperclip...

Heh, awesome huh?

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.

Too much spiel. Makes me suspect there's little substance.

You'd suspect wrong then.

Wow this mod is still active?

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.

The game also does not work on x64 systems. And before you say it will, it doesn't lol

Won't launch on my Vista 64 rig, and plenty of people are complaining already about it (even though the Steam page specifically says 32 bit only).

Hmmm... Only a closed Beta was utilized prior to going gold.
Not sure that instills confidence.

The game "has surpassed quality standards."
Since it was developed by NetDevil would those quality standards be the same as Auto Assaults?

Don't you dare dis Auto Assault! I'm still in mourning

I think they are just saying that multiplayer (whatever that is, co-op etc) will be handled though GFWL, which of course is free to use. I'm pretty sure you'll have to buy the game first though

Recommiting with 2 new pc games? one being an online-only Free to play game and the other being flight simulator (which i wouldn't even consider a game although that could be debated).

Come on.

Shame they aren't planning any expansions or sequels. Really enjoyed the game quite honestly. Thought it was going to be total crap from the videos and screens, but turned out to be quite fun and engaging.

Hopefully they change their minds on that one.
