    Here's hoping it continues to take full advantage of Xbox technology given it's going to be multiplatform. Should be cool. [​IMG]

    Sounds niiiiice! Not sure on how they plan on pulling off the online multi-play, especially based on that description.

    So, what's the scoop on this. I saw a promo for this saying SC[​IMG]andora Tomorrow is coming out like this week.. Haven't heard that much talk in this forum. Has anybody tried the demo (PC Version)?

    Well, for Xbox, EBgames.com still has it shipping on Tuedsay 3-23. CC had it in their weekly ad as available Friday 3-26. Bestbuy.com has no date yet. As for [email protected], it looks like July.


    I think I will ease by CC and BB B&M tomorrow to see what I can dig up.

    I actually had the chance to try out the game(not the demo). It plays out a lot like the first SC, so if you were pretty good in the first game, you should have no problems adapting to this game. I, on the otherhand, sucked in the first game, but I'm somehow managing okay in this game.

    Every discussion I've come across regarding the 4-player online mode has RAVED about it. Sounds really fun to me, despite being limited to 4 players. (It wouldn't work with large groups.)

    I'm trying to imagine sneaking up behind a friend, putting him in a headlock, and whispering nasty stuff in his ear before knocking him out and/or snuffing him. [​IMG] That sounds FAR too cool.

    Anybody know how finding and joining a game will work on the PC multiplayer? Does PC even have it? I don't want to play FPS mercs on the Xbox.

    It's not so much that I wouldn't play it on Xbox, but I'd prefer Keyboard/mouse. And since my friend and I want to play at the same time, it's preferred to play on two computers rather than one TV screen.

    Splinter cell was my favorite Xbox game (as far as single player goes). I expect this one to be no less. THe multiplayer is a major bonus. I'm stoked.

    I just heard some troubling news from the Gamespy review:

    I can confirm EBGames has it. I just picked up a copy at lunch. I'll look it over tonight but the box does not have an X beside the HDTV 480P box.

    Sounds pretty damn good to me... (I don't have HD yet, so I'm not upset if the 480i thing is correct or not...heh...sorry)

    The game is in 480p. The Gamespy review wrong.

    Things like this makes MS look foolish. Like they aren't even testing the games they put out, because I just don't get how they continue to have so many errors on their checklists.

    Actually, Ubisoft is the developer.

    Being a developer myself, sometimes things have to change or don't work out as planned at the last minute when the documentation has already gone out to the printers. No big deal. As long as the game is solid.
