You bet your @$$ I'm getting it Steve.

But not until this weekend. Then we can get some good GR:IT games going.

Great, I was hoping you'd get it Chris Posted Image It'll be good to play on the "ruffneck server" again. We need Rainmaykr and Grooving to buy it and our old Wolfestein team will be complete. Looking forward to seeing you on live this weekend.

Contemplating it. At $30, it would have been an almost certain buy. At $40, and with the d/l content not coming till "next year" allegedly, I'm not so sure. May wait till next week to see if anywhere does it for cheaper.
high resolution ipod featuring dlp hd programming is the best, almost as good as playstation 2 with wega windows media on a super cd! ps2 and tivo do dolby tv with broadband hdtv!

What Brian said. I would have gotten it for $30.
We'll have to see...

I ordered it from EB yesterday - with free one day shipping. Can't wait to play! Chris, so glad you are buying it, because I was going to get it for you. Now I don't have to!

See you ghosts online,

Bryan

PS: How many copies of GR:IT do you have to sell to get it free? Posted Image

-I Haven't seen a review for this yet, is it any better than the first. I could not play the first as I found it was near impossible to see anything in the distance. My experience went something like this, Spawn, snipe, snipe, panic, spin around, snipe, snipe, more panic, strain eyes trying to locate sniper,... DEAD! Yeah, a bit frustrating. I've played many shooting/squad games and this was by far the most difficult to play based solely on the poor graphics. But since I know many of you had a lot of fun with GR I hope they've made it a bit more playable. Do you guys feel the graphics are poor as well, or it it just my perception of this game?

Joel,

My experience was totally different than yours. I think the graphics are fine for the type of game and for online play. Maybe your gameplay experience negatively altered your perception of the game? Did you unlock any of the better weapons - that can make a big difference also.

Have you played with HTF groups before? I would be more than happy to meet up with you online in either version to walk through the game and go over some tips / strategies. Not that I am any kind of expert, I just thoroughly enjoyed the game and played it almost nightly for months.
I know some of these other guys and gals would probably meet up with us for an hour or two one night this week to "knock the rust off"... Maybe you could rent Island Thunder as well - that will be getting more HTF gameplay right now than the original.

Anyway, give it another try and hope to see you online soon!

You guys made my day. I knew Island Thunder was being released some time, but I had no idea it was so soon! I'll definitely be picking this up, and of course, cappin' all y'all. Posted Image

Can I get in on some of the HTF games? I have such a hard time finding games online. I just beat Ghost Recon today! 50/50 Dossier wohoo! I searched all over my stupid little city today for Island Thunder today. Hopefully I will have better luck tomorrow. My gamertag is cthopper by the way.

I'll be picking it up tomorrow as well. I've been away from XBL for too long.

This is gonna be awesome. Can't wait to start playing with you guys again.

As a side note: I get paid on the 10th, which is a Sunday. If my check gets here on Saturday, I'll be out the door buying GR:IT that day. If it doesn't come on Saturday, that means I'll be on Tuesday night.

I sure as hell hope it comes on Saturday!

I just played one campaign mission and one quick mission.

Looks great, just like GR did. It is nice to have fresh maps and tactics. Live showed me a TON of joinable matches, so that little GR "flaw" looks to be fixed. Hurry up and get it - see you online tonight!

Just picked it up. I paid the full retail ($39.99) but there was no coupon for the $10 rebate for owners of the original GR. How do we get the rebate?

I checked the forums at ubi but no info yet:

http://forums.ubi.co....nsole&id=zzdzy

I just called them (914-460-9778) and the rep said he had no info on the rebate but will ask his boss when he gets back from lunch. He said they will post rebate info on their FAQ section of their site:

http://ubisoft.custh....er/std_alp.php

WTF??? - piss poor communications regarding this rebate. Maybe it was just part of the OXM rumor/hype machine.
