All I have to say is, this games amazigness surpasses and sets the new level for FPS awesomeness. Until you have played the PC demo you have no idea. This is what I thought the Rainbow Six games shoulda been like int he first place, great graphics and amazing gameplay! Check it out!

I just hope the xbox version doesn't stray too far (graphically and framerate-wise) from the PC version. I haven't played the demo yet (been having computer probs), but have seen recent movies of the game from GS and the effects are awesome (ragdoll physics!!!!!!) This game may dominate Live until Halo 2 comes out, and when I get my computer fixed it will dominate my PC next month :D

According to EBGames, it ships 9/29/03. Take that for what it's worth.

After playing XBL, i cant really enjoy online PC games with the lack of voice chat. It just seems empty...

So i didnt bother to D/L the demo yet. Although i was tempted last night.

I tottally know what you mean JJax. I have both Unreal Tournament 2003 and Unreal Championship and I must agree that Unreal Tournament 2003 is a better game overall but I still find my self playing Unreal Championship all the time instead of UT2003. There is just something about XBL, maybe it's majesty?

However, I do highly suggest you download the demo, just to give it a shot. It will also prove as a "sneak peek" at what it could be on xbox.

I am pretty sure GCN, PS2, and XBOX but I am not sure. Luckily, XBOX has the online support :D

I'm pretty excited about this game. I love the R6 series. XBL? Damn that's sweet. I can't for this to come out, along with Halo2. That's some killer gaming right there.

Damn this game rocks!

I decided to download the demo, patch it to 1.3 etc..

What i like:

- The rag doll animation whne you die are awesome

- Faster paced than GR, i enjoy playing best out of 10 rounds, 5 minute matches, last team standing.

- I like how you get a primary weapon, secondary hand gun and grenades (flash + frag)

- You can lean and walk at the sametime (might be hard to do with a controller)

- I like how you can choose to equip your gun with a silencer or a scope.

- The gun loses control if you blast on fully automatic (for those who have played mafia, you know what i mean)

- When youre dead, you have a freecam(ghost cam), First person view on anyone alive, 3rd person, and 3rd person rotating.

- You can now see the gear they got. What i mean is, say you whip out your pistol, well you put your rifle on your back sam fisher style. Sweet....

- Timed ready up screen

- If you get team killed, you can have that dude sit out

- You can vote to kick people out

- You can change "gear" while your are sitting out and waiting

- The game is going to be awesome on XBL!

- Well thats all i can think of now, im gonna go play ;)

P.s

Post some IPs of where you play, id love to own you :)

I just kinda play wherever. My name is Merimac Hamwich, though. Most of the time I will play some sort of Team match, never just free for all.

Casper had mentioned he wanted to host some Raven shield sometime this week. You guys better D/L your demos (upgrade to 1.3) and start practicing. It would be cool to get a bunch of us XBA peeps to get some gaming in.

I would be definetly down for some Raven Shield games. The only thing is I am unsure if I have the updated version. I downloaded the 1.3 file from the link I provided, so I should be. Hmm, I guess I will just download the ptch and see if it does anything.

P.S.
I suck pretty hard at the game but its still fun.

Yeah i caught on rather quick, since im a Mouse and Keyboard God. ;)

Buy my second game i caught on to the flow of things and have been leading my team in kills and least deaths ever since. (its a good feeling after a round and you see your name next to all the enemnies names. At the end of a round it says who killed who ;) )

The link your provided only had version 1.2.

Go here for version 1.3

Wait until you see it in action...

I recall playing last night, a teammate and I were moving down a hall. You know pausing at doors, making sure its clear etc. Well we came to a corner with steps, he ran up them and i heard a *POP* of a frag grenade. His limp ass fell against the wall and rolled a little down the stairs and left a nice little blood stain. It was awesome :cool:

I shot a dude in the face that was coming up a ladder once too. He just dropped, i was cracking up. It feels good to kill people in this game. Theres great satisfactiom, picking people off with your mini scope as well.

It also looks cool when you bust into room and shoot a guy and he falls back against the wall. I usally dump an exta clip in him or whip out my pistol and blast just for fun :D

I can't believe it would..... I mean, I don't think the two systems could handle it.

At http://www.videogames.com they only have it for Xbox and the PC.

I dont think anything has been announced for PoS2 and GC.

Hmmmm...aight, I'm gonna have to set it up one night this week, even if I just make it dedicated for you guys. I'm going to have to say Thursday night, that way, I can play around with the settings and get used to hosting on that...ok?

I'd get it for xbox, but so far it's not been announced to be an xbox live title, and it's graphics will look like unreal championships (complete low res crap) where you can barely see the faces because they both use the same engine. And the deaths you see in unreal champions will be the same in raven shield, but the pc version will have the ut2k3 deaths. So I think i'll be getting it for pc instead, unless they don't try to port over the same graphics engine. Xbox definately can't handle it, i'd hate to see if they tried to port it to gc or ps2.

MerimacHamwich
03-03-2003, 07:51 PM
The xbox obviously can handle the Unreal 2 graphics engine becuase Unreal Championship is on the Xbox. If it couldn't it wouldn't be on the Xbox. The thing is, alot of the lower framerates are caused by the anti-aliasing which they made mandatory, even some PC's cannot handle Anti Aliasing well. That is why they are coming out with a patch to disable Anti Aliasing and optimize it a little more for the Xbox. Ofcourse the picture on the Xbox version isn't as sharp, its only running at 320x240, y'know, regular TV resolution...

Just because a game uses the same engine doesnt mean they have the same animations.

There are some peeps over at XR who might wanna play. I am sure there are some here too, they just haven't been in this thread yet.

I was playing last night and I actually started to get some kills, the game is even more fun when you pop somebody.

I have a pent II 266mhz with 265 k and some weakazz 3d card...

this game looks dope though.... just not dope enough for my to shell out cheese that I dont have 4 a new 'puter...
If only I was born rich or had me a sugar-momma
