    Killa mate,

    If you hold true to form, I'm sure you'll find all the best hiding places...

    Well the demo was really top stuff.

    On Live it should really rock. If they can get a clean interface going that does a better job than Ghost Recon, with all the real world weapons and funky locations, this has shot near to the top of my Christmas "to get" list. Along with PGR2, XIII, Jedi Academy, Counter Strike et al.

    I actually didn't like the control weighting much. I feel GRIT is the perfect game and tend to compare all others to it. Maybe I need to spend more time on the demo.

    PGR2 is the one I want. Anyone got F1 Career yet or played it? I may hire it first or wait and pick it up second hand.

    I think that I read somewhere that in order to make camping trickier, respawns are in random locations.

    EDIT: As a mauser-man myself I wouldn't be suggesting that camping and sniping are the same thing. ;)

    doh, i meant wolfy, you kickass dude. Infact the whole av forum has good stats.

    Will R6 be included in the av forum team matches?


    Anyone know why xbox.com doesn't show stats for all Live games, doesn't list Burnout for one.. I used to be in the top twenty overall for that! :smoke:

    Yep - Obi and killa are nice guys.

    I haven't been around much lately - my girlfriend and I have just bought a new house (and moved in on Friday), so it's all been a bit hectic.

    Rainbow six looks awesome. I bought GRIT but just couldn't get into it. I don't think I really had the time to invest in it, which is a real shame as I know that GR and GRIT are favourites on this forum. I'm not a fan of having to hold down the white button to talk and I thought the front end Live interface was clunky. Hopefully rainbow six will fix those issues - ordering your squad around with the headset is absolutely brilliant and I can see all sorts of Live-related killing opportunities!

    *Imagine* Your squad has taken out three of the four opposing team members and you've backed the last guy into a room. You flick on your heat vision to see he's making his last stand in the corner of the room behind a knocked over desk. You line up three of your guys on one side of the room and give them a flash bang zulu on the headset. You line up on the other side of the room. On Zulu, you hit the door after the flash bang and fill the room corner full of gun fire.

    But he saw you coming. With his heat vision, on zulu he lit a smoke grenade and is now in the opposing corner of the room. Disorientated by the smoke, you don't get time to switch to heat vision as you've just been shot in the head at close range.

    Awesome!

    Sounds familar, we just bought our first house and moved in last week! Don't ya just love living out of boxes and not being able to find a thing :mad: :D

    I bet your AV/xbox was amongst the first stuff to be setup, I know mine was! :clap:


    Anyone completed the R6 demo, I got right near the end and I heard gunfire and it said mission failed hostage dead! :( dunno what happened.

    On a side note does anyone else reckon the discs they use for OXM are total pants, Freedom Fighters doesn't work on mine. Probably doesn't help that you can actually see through the damn discs! magazine was pants this month too, only good thing was the R6 demo.

    I'll probably be getting this game, but I don't see the point in getting the headset, cos I already have the live headset.
    But what is the difference in price between with and without headset? If it's about £5 then I may pay the extra and get it with the headset, 'cos accidents do happen and have had mates broken their live headsets and had to pay £15 for a replacement.

    This game will be awesome.

    Fortunately, it's released around birthday time so Mrs Beng should have no trouble.

    Good news R6 is available with a 'NEW' voice controller. From comments on other forums the controller is far better than the normal XB Live one. Its just £10 more for this pack a bargain - i'll get one if my store has any, well worth having a spare XB Live controller as they are very easy to break.
    from Gamespot:

    "The Xbox Live-compatible headset features a neckband design, inline mute and volume controls, and a noise-canceling microphone. The headset is being packaged to promote Rainbow Six 3's voice-activated command features that offer enhanced play when connected to the Xbox Live network. The headset is also compatible with any other Xbox Live game with similar VA features."
