Well, go get it stupid.
Tell me how it is.
Well I finally was able to start downloading it. It has been 10 minutes, I'm at 1%. I guess I'll tell you tomorrow.
Bleh, xbox live demo.
Is that some sort of statement about something?
When you made your thread you didn't specify where the demo was available.
Please let us know. As I have posted in other threads, I plan on buying a whole new high end computer just for this game and left 4 dead.
Just woke up and I guess marketplace is still choking. 4% after half an hour.
I've read a few gaming forums and the overwhelming opinion seems to be very positive.
I put my 360 on "Low Power Mode" so I could download during the night. I woke up at 70%.
Played the demo....my overall opinion is:
I beleive I'll be picking up the PC version even if I have to run it at a slightly lower res. The splicers (type of enemy AI) are just too fast to try to deal with them using a fucking thumbstick....I need a mouse for that shit. Then you have those flying bots that act like the manhacks from Half Life 2 which are a pain in the ass to get a bead on.
Overall though the art direction and atmosphere is breathtaking. Gameplay is similar to System Shock 2 but with much much more immersive visuals. This one is a no brainer if you even remotely like shooters.
Too weird for me, sorry.
Give me a SCAR-L and some ragheads, please.
Will there be a PC demo?
Sorry, I've missed out on spending what amounts to the cost of a new PS3 to upgrade my PC every time a new game comes out.
What are you going to need to run Bioshock at a decent framerate? A new Video Card, upgrade to Vista? Some more RAM perhaps? Another processor and a cooling fan?
great great demo.
Usually it's PS3 and Xbox fanboy shit that comes with these threads.
Now it's console vs PC?
Anyway, as far as the enemies being really quick and hard to get with the thumb stick, can you change the sensitivity at all? I have no problem shooting in Halo or CoD, but I do agree that FPS is a little easier on the PC.
End of the month supposedly.
Started it a couple minutes ago, at 27% already.
I'll play the XBOX360 demo, but would rather play a FPS on my PC. Anyone know if the game will be released on all platforms at the same time?
PC and 360 only as of today.
This game looks insane - really cool atmosphere. Basically it takes place around the mid 1940's in a city that is underwater. What I understood from the demo is that this guy built a city underwater in the middle of the Atlantic, much to the chagrin of the Soviets and Americans.
Pretty intense demo.
Have you downloaded it yet, I need a review?
They just sent out a press release about the PC demo:
so hopefully before the full game launches next week.
re story: The game is based on Ayn Rands novel "Atlas Shrugged" taken to its extreme.
It's totally worth downloading if you're wondering. It looks fantastic and is instantly immersive. My 360 deleted all of my Oblivion saves when I was 60+ hours into it, so needless to say, I haven't really been enjoying the system lately - I've basically gone back to my GameCube for another round of Zelda. Despite this, but I enjoyed this demo in its entirety and for at least a few minutes forgot how much I would love to leave this dumb system in the middle of Route 17. Within the first five minutes, you can already tell that this game is going to be incredibly popular.
I don't know why some of you are having trouble downloading it. My download took no longer than 10 to 15 minutes and I just have regular broadband.
meh, it was ok. too much story and puzzle shit, and its only a demo. to hack a robot and turn it to work with you, you have to solve stupid fucking puzzles that take time. no need for that shit. its gay.
