Hey has anyone gone out and bought it yet? Im thinking about picking it up on my way home from school tonight. I downloaded the multiplayer demo the day it came out and have had tons of fun playing. I cant wait to get my hands on the whole game :-p

i dont know, i'm gonna wait until a patch comes out, because its really unfinished. the multiplayer demo, while it was fun, it was still really unpolished, ill wait and save my 50$

What do you mean its not finished? The first demo might of had some bugs but if you patched it, then it was great! And of course you cant expect a beta demo test to be 100% perfect.

why buy a pc game when it comes out for x-box? i mean look what happened with morrowind! lots of extras for the pc and none for the xbox, plus a pc only expansion. I mean dont get me wrong i like xbox but I like pc games better!

um its a totally different game there black. the game you are talking about you controlled a plane and shot down enimies. this game is a first person shooter where you play as a soldier or can control various WWII era vehicles.

well first was anti aliasing, i cant play a game without anti aliasing..w/AA the text would be unreadable.

the menus would be reeeeeally slow (i know its not my comp..athlon 1800 (oc'ed), ti4400(oc'd to 300/660)), on wake island i would go in a landing craft and it would disappear from underneath me and id go flying in the water

and oh, all the n00bs :o

I have a few reasons for wanting to do this:

1) my PC probably wouldn't be able to run the game anyways
2) I spent a sh!t load of money on my xbox and i want to be able to get as much value out of it as possible
3) Sometimes it's nice to be able to get away from my computer.
4) I only buy strategy games, like Civ2, Civ3, EU, Caesar3, for the pc. I don't like havign to use the keyboard in other types of games.

It's selling at 20th September here, I already ordered one. MPDemo doesn't run on my PC, but I get a new one for LAN Parties anyway. Seems to be great !
