AvP

So, who's getting it? I have every intention to (assuming my rig can handle the demo well, which it should), and I'm looking forward to eating colonial marine faces. Any other TFP members planning on taking the plunge?

Yeah, I'm going to wait and pre-order it the day before release - assuming the demo runs well and the reviews aren't abysmal. Between AvP, Mass Effect 2, and BioShock 2, I've got to be a bit careful where my disposable income goes for the next month or two.

I am already pushing for TFP to try hosting a server for it on release. I think it could be a possible secondary game for us if it is even remotely as fun as the original AVP/AVP2.

I am going to eat all your faces with my acid...face...eating...thing.

EDIT: GAMI YOU GIANT PINK...THING. YOU GET IT OR I'LL HAMMER YOU HARD >:(

The AvP demo goes live on XBL, PSN, and Steam as of tomorrow. Can't wait to see how this plays (and runs on my rig).

If they release dedicated demo tools, I might try and get us a demo server hosted.

So the demo went up early last night. It's multiplayer only (Deathmatch; 8 players), and dedicated server support wasn't up so it was restricted to matchmaking (which sucked).

In terms of gameplay, I really enjoyed it. I only played as an Alien and topped the scoreboards each time, but it's a LOT of fun to play. Running all over, leaping down on motherfuckers...yeah, baby.

The stealth kill system is a bit...easy. Basically get behind someone, press E, get instant kill. The kills are awesome but sometimes it feels a bit cheap.

The game ran surprisingly well. I maxed everything out and ran at 60 FPS solid for awhile, but then it started to drop after about 10 minutes. Haven't tried playing with the settings down yet, but I expect to be able to play at near-max without a problem.

Looking forward to getting home tonight and playing on some dedicated servers...if they're up by then.

Only thing I hope gets tweaked is the marines weapons need to feel a bit more...punchy. They sorta feel weak. They might not BE weak, but they feel like it. Also, always hated AVP free for all deathmatch, so really want to see the species teamplay :X.

Alien is a blast though, really disorienting though after not playing an avp in so long :X
