ive been playing the demo all moring on my pc (amd dual core 64 bit 4400, 2 gig ram, 680 gt oc, 21 in lcd) and i am blown away so far. if its better on the xbox were in for a treat. graphics are great, the portals are really funky, you can shoot thru them. also the running on walls and falling to diffrent planes can make ya a bit dissoriented. cant wait to try it on my 55 inch tongue.gif

yeah honestly, this practice should be illegal, or very much avoided. It's false advertising, sure it's free.. but I had squared away a piece of my wednesday to play this, now I will have to wait til prolly' sat. FUCKERS! ASSHOLES!

I wouldn't clear my schedule on the 21st for something that isn't a sure thing.


This demo not being up on Live MP is a blessing for me. I just need to put it out of my head until the retail game is released.

exactly i understand that a lot of people are pointing the finger at MS, but i dont think they are the ones that put out the ads, isnt it the publishers of the actual game just like they are the ones who put out ads for the retail games? the quote i posted says its not MS's fault but people still need a scapegoat. shit happens, and any one of us should understand by now that nothing is gauranteed with gaming. if ads can have the wrong date for an actual game, i see no reason why it wouldnt happen for a demo as well.

i agree that it is getting old but bitching and whining about a FREE and very awsome feature wont get anyone anywhere.

I gotta agree. I mean, it just worked out that I had today off. Like many in this thread I wanted to spend a chunk of it checking this game out. dry.gif

I can understand the amount of problems that anyone in the game industry faces, but that is why the PR hustlers should SHUT THE FUCK UP. grr.gif

I like knowing ahead of time whats coming but demos and the like should not be hyped up when thier still fucked up.

But PC demo is kickass eh? I want it on my big TV too...looking all maxed... sad.gif

But yeah, shit happens.

And if we HAD these new great things (i love the dash update) I wouldnt whine.

I could understand if this was Gears of War or Halo 3.

I mean for all you know, the demo might turn out to suck.

well not to directly point a finger at MS, at least not their technical people but I can think of so many things that came out much much later than orginally told by the PR people. and some that still havent come out. So theres something going on, and maybe the PR and techies should talk more often or something to give some more realistic dates.

Is that referring to the Gears of War demo that was "Coming Soon" months ago?
