Follow the advice of jblank and others here. Waiting another 30 days is much better than regretting your purchase 6 months from now. I'm Mister Instant Gratification, but I FORCED myself to postpone my purchase until I could afford the Sony SuperFine Pitch HDTV (the last run of their finest CRT models). It was a hellish wait, but I'm pleased with the results.

Quote
Just remember that on an HDTV, regular tv actually looks worse than on a standard-def set.  So if you have cable but it isn't digital with HD delivery, watching regular tv will be a bit disappointing.

This is absolutely true. Regular TV and cable take a significant hit on an HDTV set. Even DVDs tend to look somewhat worse. The flaws are much more easily seen.

but when you watch a hdtv broadcast especially sports its worth spending the money to get a quality set. btw I use an hd 30 inch sony widescreen crt set for my 360 gaming love it.

Impressions finally..  Although my time ingame is very limited so far, only 1 part of Campaign, and 1 skirmish map.

Fantastic engine.
Great Graphics
Music is fantastic.
Lotsa maps, some are huge!
3 Playable races, 2 non-playable (expansion?)  Each plays entirely different!
Strong Tutorial
Huge amount of units, upgrades, tactics.

The bad:
Crappy manual, 25 pages of garbage.  Black and white.
DVD is REQUIRED to be in the drive throughout play!  A really lame move that screws over people that play on the lan in the home.
Can't find a way to turn down or off the HDR..

I have to tweak settings, as the sounds seem subdued, while the music overshadows it.  I suspect this is adjustable.  One thing I really like is the new Race (Dragons) is a heavy steath, trap, sneak and range race. You can order your units to "Bury" themselves so they become invisible, and can make surprise flank attacks - FANTASTIC!

So far, I am overwhelmingly positive about the game, the DVD being required in the drive is really really weak move on the part of the publisher, and will result in people rapidly seeking nocd's to enjoy the game without the CD.  Thats my only major complaint at this point, but it is still early in the game.

More impressions later.

damn burying just like the zerg in starcraft now I gotta track me down a copy how do I explain it to the wife when I just got coh lol. Roll Eyes

Quick question...and I'm not meaning to go off-topic here, but a couple of folks in this thread have compared this to BFME2.  I tried the demo for BFME...and found it to be just another same-ole', same-ole' RTS.  I didn't really see any innovation between that and RON, or AOE or anything else.  What did I miss?

Actually thats kind of a bad comparison because in coh you can use cover and flanking the enviroment is totally destructable oh hes hiding in a house level it  taking cover behind bushes burn the bushes down with a flame thrower unit.

I'm a bit late to the party.  I downloaded the demo from the PC Gamer disk.  It looks like a great, fun - if tactical - game.  I'm very tempted to buy it, even though I don't much like RTS games.  I tend to quickly lose interest in them (though I liked Medieval: Total War).  I only have two complaints.

1.  It's awfully fast.  I don't have the dexterity to keep up with it.  It's hard.  I've played the Carenten scenario through 3 times...and only on the last did I get the Medal (with 15 seconds to go).  Part of the problem is that my defenses were rather effective, which blocked the bridges.  People couldn't get around the burning tanks to attack me.  Then, of course, I get hit with the artillery...and things get very ugly at that point.

2.  The demo runs like a dog on my system (AMD 3.2, 1G RAM, X1800 Pro video card).  It's not so bad when the action happens, but the load times are horrendous...I'm talking minutes here.  Now, to be fair, the demo says it's not optimized.  But I'm wondering if those really do speed up on the real release. 

Now I'm not likely to spend $50 on this game, especially since I won't play it multiplayer.  The single player scenarios aren't worth $50 for what (or so I've read) is about 20 hours of gameplay.  But it has captured my imagination like few prior RTS games.

your specs are better than mine and I have no problems running the retail version you also know you can use the pause button?

The games will suck!  I can't see it.
Control is a gimmick! So was the second screen on a handheld
I'm lazy. It's too much work to actually move!  Uh?

It's too easy. The problem is that some people in here can only see one side of the Nintendo coin (Get it, coin! Threw that in for Mario!).

The games will suck:
The games won't suck, but will this version of Mario Kart make me want to spend $300 to play over the last 48 versions? Nintendo always goes back to the well. When Sony does it with the PSP it's a port. When MS does it with a sequel, it's just another Halo. When Nintendo does it, they've somehow magically captured the greatest point in anyones life and displayed it neatly on your SDTV...again.

Control is a gimmick:
When you look at the DS. REALLY look at it. 75% of the games could be done with one screen and no touch. I have the games, I've seen it.

Too much work:
Think about this for a minute. Could you, at least envision a time where you didn't want to flail around your living room to play a game? Could it get tiring at some point depending on the game?

I'm getting a Wii on DAY ONE but just like the DS, you really need to come to grips with the fact that it may not be the greatest thing ever placed on earth OR even the greatest video game system you can buy in 2006.


You got some really good points there and that controller if I want to work out I'll go to the gym could get old flipping and wailing to play a game.

Waiting on impressions for Company of heroes first.

Let me save you the trouble:

"OMFG IT ROX"

Thats about what everyone will be saying I think.  :slywink:
The two demos should have been more than enough to let people know how incredible this game is going to be.
Also there are demos.  I'm really looking fwd to it, and I don't even like RTS games.



Alright I picked this up on the way home from work it better rock. nod

I'd have to say that I liked the SNES versions of those Koei games. I used to play them a lot. Used also fall asleep while playing those a lot at 3am... I was awesome at Gemfire, Ghengis Khan, any 3 sagas game, Uncharted Waters and it's sequel New Horizons(one of the best Pirate games evar!) Yeah I'd say you've got some good ones, you need to find PTO as well and some Shonobunga's games as well.

man I can't wait for virtual console, Koei better be one board...MmmMmm new Horizons... I still play that from time to time on my PC.


Yea new horizons was awesome I lost alot of hours playing that game.

I have not discussed this recently with TML, but I believe our original idea was to start either one week prior to or the day of the regular season. Roster update will certainly come, but I think it makes little sense to wait on the off chance that EA delays it quite a bit. If we play with inaccurate rosters for part of the season, so be it. Anyways, hopeflly TML will decide shortly.

I'm ready to go anytime guys just say the word icon_biggrin
