    Had some really great fun tonight with MP and some forum members.

    We tried lots of the different game types. All were fun with the possible exception of "Search and Rescue" which was kinda like CS hostage type mode but as we really weren't sure what was going on we ditched it after just one round.

    The MP game is hugely configurable and what's great is that all players can see what the exact setup is. Very useful if the host misses a setting (which is easy to do!). Some of the maps are huge and some are incredibly atmospheric - ambient light and sounds adding to the tension.

    We also played several co-op games, only Elimination and I can report that the AI seems to be pretty good! When you get more players the difficulty does decrease but it's still fun if there are only a few of you about and not enough for head to head.

    I've only got a few gripes - I hate having music that you can't turn off. Looped music in the lobby drives me nuts and the mood music in the game can get tiresome. Only other gripe is the manual. A few pages which barely scratch the surface of what's in the game. No info on configurations or weapon specs for example.

    Looking forward to finding out a whole lot more about the game. For those that don't have it yet, you're in for a treat lads. I'm sure you won't be disappointed with MP.

    I better not be, i'm buying this based on you!! Only kidding should be a cracker. Dads going to tesco after work so we'll see if they've got it in.

    How does the music work? Is it completly random or when you are engaged in a firefight do some thumping acoustics start? Just asking might ruin the element of suprise.

    Oh and another quick question. See this outlining carryon, how does that work say i peek round a corner will it auto highlight you? or would i have to hover over you if you know what i mean and is the info relayed to your team?

    Haha sorry just wonderings thats all :rolleyes:

    Jesus, woohoo another thread.

    What does it really matter? Sure information might be fragmented and it might be easier to get it all from the one 72 page thread but then again. This is far more readable and provides a platform to ask questions with the hope of it getting a look in, that is until this turns into another large collection of posts.

    A thread is just a post of prominance. Oh who am i kidding :oops:

    Although I got stuck playing FN3 for most of last night, my brief spell with GRAW was very good, although I have yet to try MP.

    SaltireOne I should be ready to play some games tonight, now I've at least figured out the controls. Your right about the manual bud, you certainly could'nt use it to wedge a door open with it :) .

    Now I've managed to blag a full refund on COD2, GRAW will be my main MP experience from now on.

    Thanks for the games, it has lived up to expectations, just need to learn all the maps and find a few guns that I like.

    Cheers for the invite guys I really enjoyed it too, just a shame that I had to go so early.
    It was good to meet some other AVF people :)
    AW certainly doesn't disappoint and it's nice to see that Ubi seem to have got this one right with no obvious bugs at the moment.

    When I 1st got the Xbox, GR1 was the game big on live at the time and I got to know most of my current friends list playing it. This game has got me by the nads with an iron grip and I can see it being the game to get everybody playing regular like GR1 and RS3 did 2-3 years ago.

    Brill games lads just touching the surface with it at mo and looking forward to delving.:smashin:

    Was a good laugh bud. It's ace playing online, being able to enjoy the games and have a bit of banter on chat. Just one thing though, do you ever miss a meal?

    :rotfl:

    I'm in tonight - no pub (maybe a few drinkies!) but I'm playing footie on Sunday morning so won't be a late late late session.

    Me, Diga, Gashead and DJC were playing co-op last night when most people left and it was hilarious. I set the the enemy density to infinite and we were defending our spawn! It's basically hold off the horde as long as you can before you get killed or run out of ammo! Good laugh. :D

    Great games last night, thanks for hosting Saltire, it was flawless apart from the odd lag out when it got full up.

    I try to eat 3 to 4 meals per day.

    Won't be on tonight but will be tomorrow night, hope to see you all then :thumbsup:
