Sorry for not joining up for MP last night. Me and Willie  wanted to play some SP Co-op.   We probably will finish up tonite I think.  We just made it to the cart control room in the factory.


Btw, Factory level is SWEET!

I love how this thread has been reduced to two pages of people's impressions of acquiring the game itself rather than playing it.   saywhat


Your right.  My initial immpression after 30-45 minute of playing.

I won't mention the graphic much, but I play on a HDTV and they look awesome, but Arkon who I was playing SP Coop with was playing on the standard def tv and he was ohh and ahh over the visuals

Gameplay so far is a nice change of pace.  This isn't Halo or even GRAW.  Shoot and sccot is very important.  If you charge a enemy you will be killed.  The AI so far seems able to flank and react to us flanking.  I haven't seen too many brain dead AI yet.

I haven't tried MP yet other than SP coop, but I hope to get to it tonite.

That's my brief impressions after 30-45 of playing.

Well, I was able to pick up my pre-order from Gamestop today and that's here in Baltimore, but my buddy who works in Silver Springs couldn't get his cause his orders was stuck in Tenn.   Anyway, he is on the way to Best Buy to get it since they have it in stock

Btw, Arkon is a evil man.  We are playing SP Coop and we decide to take a break.  While playing I get a voice message from papasmurf saying, "Damn! Hard-core!  We might play MP later you up for some?"   Seems that Arkon set our very first play thru on the hardcore difficulty.   eek   No wonder I was getting my ass kicked. 

The game is awesome and it will take some time for me to get used to the cover  and shot playstyle.    All other shooters haven't prepared me for this, but that's a good thing
4331  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Genji [PS3] Review-Hi2u Bad Launch Titles on: November 08, 2006, 03:36:27 PM
Honestly, I think the 360 launch titles were also pretty weak.  Off the top of my head NFS:MW , CoD2 and PGR are the best of the 360 launch titles.  As we can see it takes awhile for the killer apps to come out, i.e Gears of War

Picked it up around 1:30PM. Brought my 360 into work and hooked it up to our HDTV. Been playing for about 2-3 hours now, both SP and SP-COOP. I like how you can play SP and then continue via COOP later. Graphics are amazing!
I will probably leave the 360 here until Friday and play in between jobs.

That's it?? Tongue  How 's  the gameplay?  Is the AI team-mates brain dead?   More impressions!!!

Or is it just preparation for tomorrow, so they can call in "sick" to work?  Hmmmmmmm.  It'd be an ingenious plan (though I'm sure here people would just admit to playing hooky).

And EDITED to clarify; the joking aside; feel better guys!

Actually, you are right they are playing slick  icon_biggrin :slywink:

Soul - On a more serious note, my nephew has a rig very much akin to yours, so I am interested to see how it runs, as he would love to play the game as well, but isn't sure if he'll be able to.

Please report how it goes if you get it and mess around with it a bit.

Thanks.

Sure thing, LD.  Looking at the main forums it looks like I might be able to run it at defaults setting without a preformance hit, BUT we'll see.

I think perhaps Hetz got the game from that Direct Download thingy... I don't know, just guessing.

As far as my system goes Soul:

AMD 64 X2 - 4600+  (I think that's right - I don't remember)
2 gig of some really fast RAM  (or so I'm told)
nVidia gforce 7900GT Video Card  (256 or 512 ram - I don't remember)
19" LCD monitor with native 1280x1024 resolution.

I'm guessing I'll be fine.

The Space Marines who I thought I was pretty comptent using are getting thier asses handed to the by the IG.  By the time I get on of two squads up the IG are rushing me with 5-6.   I'm playing on normal, so I think I am going to drop the difficulty to easy to see how that goes
Are you playing the campaign?  Sometimes you'll get rushed by the opposing hero unit and his bodyguards that he's earned from map conquests.  If you invade in a neutral space, or just play the skirmish mode, you probably won't get invaded.

IG Guardsman are very quick to build as well, and very cheap.  They come right out of the headquarters I think, versus the Space Marines building a barracks and then the longer load time for space marines.




Actually, I replayed it and went aggressive.  The IG have two bases up, should have read the briefing, but after a few Space Marine pushes I was able to damage both thier enconomies.  I beat it.  Now I'm in  the middle of trying to take the Space Port from the Necrons
