  1. I think they will wait until e3 to actually release Street Fighter it would be a good move if they release it with a few other classics.

    Microsoft have confirmed that UNO and Cloning Clyde will be released for the XBL Arcade during E3, but they haven't said anything about Street Fighter. But you're probably right, I guess it'll be available together with those two.
  2. Well, it's finally installed ;)

    I don't like the start of the game that much, it really just throws you into the deep and you need to figure everything out for yourself. Normally I don't mind, but with such a complex title I can't really say I like it.

  3. So, finally got the 360 version yesterday or so and started installing it a few hours ago. All was well until I got the POL-12288 error which means it can't update. Argh. Reinstall required.

    It'd better be worth it.

  4. You just have to place your squad in cover all the time, that's about it. And that's really easy, just aim at a certain spot and press up on the d-pad. I agree it looks quite complicated from time to time in the video but it's actually quite easy when you're playing it for yourself.

  5. Daanos, What are the control schemes like? Does Ubi offer costomisable controls this time around, or will it automatically adjust to your 360's personalised controls settings from the dashboard?

    I just need to know, because Ubi have a habit of releasing FPS with a limited number of thumbstick settings (like Far Cry).

    I suppose it will automatically adjust to your personalised control settings, but I'm not sure since I haven't customised it on my debug unit.

    Anyway, there a three controller schemes available, A, B and C. But they only change the function of the buttons, no thumbstick thingy. Does that answer your question?

  6. Any chance of some brief impressions?

    I'm really, really, REALLY liking it. It's a previewbuild from january so it still has some flaws (sometimes my squadmates just refuse to obey my command), but it's obvious to me that this'll be my favourite Xbox 360 game for quite some time. It's really intense, you have to think before you act, because the A.I is amazing. You'll need to flank your enemies like in Brothers in Arms and Full Spectrum Warrior, but it feels way better in GRAW and you have to be more careful as well, since the enemy tries the same from time to time. I don't know why, but the game just has something special...

    I'm in love with the videofeed in the upper left corner of the screen, by the way. When hell breaks loose it's quite cool to see your how your teammates react in the videofeed. Complete with rustle when they run for cover, ofcourse.

    Oh and it looks FABULOUS, duh.




    Edit: Sorry for the big screens. I'll make links of them.

    My favourite moment thusfar (2nd mission spoilers):

    When you reach the embassy in Mexico City where you need to pick up the Mexican president, it explodes. I was really scared the poor guy was killed, but when you reach the embassy it's clear that's he's still alive. The only problem is: REBELS ARE COMING FROM EVERY DIRECTION NOW! Intense to the bone!

  7. Well there are some completely INSANE achievements: you need to be #1 on the leaderboards for a certain achievement. Another game in which getting the 1000 Gamerscore is almost impossible.

    Other achievements are playing 5 hours STRAIGHT online, making 1000 kills online (etc.), and the basic 'finish singleplayer mission X'.

  8. Well, at least the producer of the game makes clear why the Burnout-tricks were removed:

    De ontwikkeling van BLACK is met een ruim jaar aan de korte kant. Toch ziet het spel er behoorlijk anders uit dan de op de E3 van 2005 getoonde versie. Onder andere het Burnout-achtige puntensysteem is uit het spel gesloopt. “We hadden al snel door dat het puntensysteem bij BLACK geen toegevoegde waarde heeft en af zou doen van de beleving.

    BLACK is een redelijk serieuze game met een grimmige sfeer en schreeuwerige schermen met ‘kijk je hebt zoveel punten behaald door dit headshot!’ ligt naar onze mening niet in lijn met de rest van het spel.”

    Yes, that's unreadable for the most of you since it's Dutch so I'll just sum it up in English: He thinks Black's a pretty serious game and with the points system thingy it would be less serious, and it would add nothing to the immersion.

    Uhm, okay...

  9. Received the retail version today. I'm enjoying it, although I'm also quite amazed by the enemies which seem to need a full clip to actually die.

    I'll put it in my 360 later on, to see if it works on it.

    We own a HDTV as well, but since it's in the living room and I don't want to annoy my parents (I still live at home) with all the awful sounds that some games make, it's hooked up with an normal TV. Which is also nice.

    Sorry for the crappy mobshots.

  12. I've been playing Call of Duty 2 and Perfect Dark Zero all week. I've finished both, but I'm trying to finish CoD2 on the Veteran difficulty setting. Perfect Dark Zero is inserted in the 360 almost every evening for some online fun.
