Game play is a blast.  Their demo MP options... not so much.  It's peer-to-peer, and no way to see if the host can actually handle a full game, no way to start your own server, etc.  With the full version I expect it will be less of an issue since you can have dedicated PC servers for the 360.  But right now seems just about impossible to find a lag free game.

Definitely going to get the game.

I'll be there day 1

Instant day one purchase. Very short, but smooth looking/playing demo. This will be the Batman game that will break the curse.  Plays like a cross between splinter cell and assassins creed

The new Post 911 GI Bill will pay for a full four year degree in your home state so that's something you could take advantage of.

Just do like the say in Office Space, if you had a Million dollars what would you want to do?  icon_biggrin

Definately going to use that G.I. Bill during my job transition.  Most likely i'll be staying in the military until I hit 20 years or more.  The Marine Corps will not let me change jobs without losing rank so the plan is to transition into the ARMY. I make fun of the army all the time, but in all honesty they have better opportunities for myself and my family.  I can be an XRAY tech, do financial paperwork, or be even be a firefighter in the Army.  The important thing is that I would finally be home for good and actually be there for my family during the holidays.

Best of luck to you, Kato.  But do you know what this means?  ANOTHER PARTY AT PETEROCK'S WHEN YOU RETURN!  And because of the fish tank incident the entire first floor will be redesigned and renovated to better accomodate guests.  A new kitchen, new bar seating area, new wine bar/drink bar in the dining space, new bathroom, new flooring, etc.  What better way to truly christen the space than when you return from the sandbox? 

And we have more than a year to plan the next shindig.  It shall be even more fabulous than the last one.  Fabulous

Woohoo! I think by then I will train my alcohol tolerance to 3 beers instead of 2  icon_biggrin

Quote from: drifter on August 02, 2009, 12:42:04 AM

I got out of the Marines after 12 years in due to the same concerns.  I was married and with the drawdown that was going on (from 212,000 to 185,000) we were told to expect to be deployed 80% of the time.  I decided it was time to get out and April 1, 1997 was my last active duty day; I had 55 days terminal leave.  My XO came to talk to me one evening when I was the Staff Duty Officer and he confided in me that his proudest accomplishment to date was that he was still on his first marriage; this guy was qualified as a Marine One pilot (able to fly the President) so he respected my decision.

Best decision I ever made, I landed in a great job and have done well from there.  I know a lot of what I have done since getting out was due to what I learned in the Marine Corps.

By the way to everyone that thinks the retirement is great think again.  I went in in 1985 and had I stayed to 20 years I would have gotten 50% of my base pay which comes out to about $1000/month, 30 years would have been 75% base pay.  If you are near a base you can take advantage of the exchange and medical there but active duty have priority over you.  The people that went in only a few years after me didn't get 50% at 20 they lowered it to 35% so the retirement sucks and you are starting over at 38-40 years old; not a good combination.

As a family, we have decided that instead of going to the civilian work force, I can try and find a job pushing papers instead of being in the field all of the time.  Maybe if I can find a job in the military that has a decent schedule I can start to go back to school.  My current skill set does not transfer very well into the civilian world...... one of my regrets for being a combat MOS all these years.

Aren't all Army and Marines MOS pretty much stuck over there? I am undeployable in my current AF job, but I am getting moved soon. frown

in my experience, people like you, or people in the armed forces are victims of their own sucess.  The better the job you do, the harder it is to change your job.  I'm in my 15th year (enlisted right after high school), and I honestly don't know what else I can do.  The only offer I got was from the Army, instructor for Rangers, Airborne, and Pathfinders in Ft benning

Yesterday, I received orders to back to the great sandbox.  This deployment will last 12 months instead of the 6-7 month period.   icon_frown

After a long talk with the wife, we have decided that one way or another, that this would be my last deployment.  I can change jobs (MOS), or maybe even get out of the armed forces for a civilian job. 

There have been many people in this community that have had to start over professionaly, and its something I really never had to think about.  I have no fear going back to Iraq but I have fear starting my life over. 

Anyways, just wanted to vent a little. 

I'll be deploying within 2 months, and I can't believe I wont be here when Modern Combat 2 is released.

Whats a radiotag? Something I should pay attention to, now that I'm in Dust?

Radiotags are terribly acted audio logs which can be found in secluded areas across the Martian landscape.  As you collect them, you'll find hidden "Ultor-era bombs" like the MOAB I used to help wipe out that city center.  Keep an eye on your minimap and make a beeline for any green blips that may appear.

-Autistic Angel

Im fairly sure that the radiotags are actual photos (and their own voice acting) of the devs.

I played some RFG this morning and have to say that I'm agreeing a bit with you on these points. I assaulted a high priority target several times and no matter how I planned or prepared it alway turned into me versus a universe full of guards. I guess I should have held off trying this target until I have more sophisticated weapons. However, there are a number of features I do like, so I'll keep at it, just give myself some time to figure things out a bit more.

The Eurogamer review actually says the same thing that you guys are about the early going and getting overwhelmed by reinforcements.  However, they go on to say that after you get out of the second area and into the third, the game opens up in terms of weaponry available, areas, and structures you get to demolish.

Things also get incredibly easier when morale is past 70+ or more, because when that happens you always get truckloads of guerilla reinforcements that come to your aid as you do your missions. 

Also multiplayer was awesome last night with some GT members and Tom Chick and his gang

Picked it up yesterday, my boy (I use my 3 year old son's name in all these games) is 7-2 in his first year on the circuit, he's a straight up striker, kickboxing his way to KOs and TKOs. Once I learned the head kick I started getting first round KOs. biggrin

When I get taken down all I do is hold on until the ref stands us back up. I really need to go back to the grappling tutorial. Tongue

The game definitely has that "one more match" feeling to it. I've only seen one MMA fight, two chicks fighting to a decision on HBO when I was channel-surfing one night. I couldn't definitely see how this could be addicting.

Someone mentioned all the loading screens were getting annoying. I installed to the hard drive and I find all the loads to be pretty quick.

It's also very pretty. even the blood-spatters are pretty. The cuts are the worst looking part of it, they look like was stick-ons.

In the middleweight class, I created my hall of famer.....THE HUMAN PANCAKE (Boxing and wresting)

So far in ranked games he has 11 straight wins, however against Jarrodhk, not so good.

Cool Owain, I'll send you an invite for some friendly matches or send me one if I didn't notice you're online.  I have a welterweight and lightweight CAF, but I can make a light-heavy one or just use the regular roster. 

I've managed to level up my character to lvl 3 judo and lvl 3 muy thai, and its amazing how deep the fighting engine is. 

Oh and GSP (george St.-Pierre) is a beast.  Has anyone beaten him on any other difficulty than beginner? He kills me with his lightning fast standup, and when I take him to the ground I end up getting a rear-naked choke from him  disgust

So I was pretty much steamrolling through light heavyweight on hard.... up until I got to Rampage and his Clinch'O'Doom.   Ugh, any tips on avoiding the clinch?  He seems to grab me from half way across the ring and brutalizes me.   I've tried punching my way out, but his hands >>>> my hands frown

Guess I'll go beat up on Jardine a little bit and try to get back in the saddle.

Clinch is really hard to get out of especially if your clinch defense is low. If your fighter knows judo, the clinch is no problem and you can end up tossing them on the mat with no problem in the clinch. 

I finally can sumbit the cpu (on hard) easily enough, but had to raise my submission offense skill past 70. 

Hmmm....we gotta get some GT player matches going on  ninja
