More Useless Commentary: (Heh Heh)
MULTIPLAYER: laggy as hell, or as been my experience. I got dropped from 3 different games yesterday, and in-game people were doing the herky-jerk warp dance quite a bit. I Think game hosting people need to become aware of the limitations of broadband UPLOAD bandwidth :) I'm sure it'll settle down a bit, but as soon as I see 16 players in a game I start to expect lag, or disconnects.
I did have some great fun in the few minutes I played with DaverJ and some other dudes. Getting a kill in this game is VERy satisfying. Walking with a group of guys, and actually behaving as a squad (I scouted out some stairs..WOOOO!) was quite satisfying. Then..we all got blowed up :)
*BUT*...I'll also say this. Team Elimination is going to be a novelty for me, and I can see myself growing bored with it quickly. This game utterly favors the camper just in the nature of the pace of the game, and the fact that it moves failrly slowly with slow reaction times on the running, "diving" and maneuvering of the game. All of my kills were when I "Stopped, DRopped, and Listened". Taking out targets of opportunity whie they engaged with others on my team. Real? Maybe..but once everyone figures this out....eh..we'll see.
MY HUD ISSUE: Ok I think this is a PC screenshot, but here's what I'm talking about:http://image.com.com/gamespot/images..._screen003.jpg
You see that nice "border" around the HUD with the neon-like greyish color? Yeah, I DONT HAVE THAT on my screen. Also, you see that weapon? Yeah, I DONT have that either. IN First Person mode on the 360 should I be seeing that hud surrounding my "stats"?? Cuz I see the Cam window in the upper left hand corner, and I see the stats in the lower left hand corner..but no hud surrounding them, they are tucked cleanly into my corners. Damn, is it an overscan issue!?!?!
Also..shouldn't I be able to see my weapon in FIRST person mode? Or is this game like the older Ghost Recons, where the weapons aren't modeled....just the aiming reticule...??
Many thanks for explanation before I go insane :)
