Sweet! It's at the 12 minute mark for those streaming it. When she said "It's at the south corner of [censored] and You" I was CHEERING. Well played, Ritual.

I downloaded the video yesterday, and there's one thing that I don't think any of the nay-sayers have picked up on...

Most naysayers have been saying that since we quoted "4-6 hours," the game would most likely be about 1-2 hours. In the video, he says that he played for 3 1/2 hours, and he didn't finish it.

The only downside from the video is that the build that he played had a bug where the jetpack guys weren't screaming when they were flying around...that's been fixed for unlock.

i miss many things what sin1 made so great (not mentioned the things which are already in sin2 also):

- damageskins
- funny sentences of blade
- health packs (the new idea seems to be cool though)

and some other things i dunno now.

sin2 feels too much like half life now........

It does look rather HL2-ish to me from the trailers. We'll see in a few days. One thing to keep in mind is that one of the advantages of episodic content is that the developers can take community feedback into account faster. So if it does turn out that lots of fans find the game to be overly HL2-ish, it's not unlikely that they'll try to change things a bit in the next episode.

That's a silly thing to say....

Any game that uses the same engine as another game will obviously look similar. Quake 4 looks like Doom 3, guess why? They use the same game engine... You can see this occuring in any game that uses the same game engine as another game.

sure and every quake 2 engine game looked like quake 2 ? or quake 3?
that's dumb to say.

yeah, people who use d3 engine have the same setting and don't vary much, that's not cool so is it in sin episodes... we'll see.

Well to be fair to the naysayers it's certainly not uncommon for developers to overestimate completion times for games.

his review seemed rather mixed
overall sounds like he liked it, but i get the idea he's one of those games that wants "hyper realistic" games...

hah.

although he seems unduly obsessed with hl2.

ah well.
still looking forward to it ! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Yeah, the look of Episodes is kinda stylized, a bit more colorful and interesting than HL2, imo.

Could you really tell if the mercs had damage marks at the speed the thing was edited? And the 'funny' quips from Blade were one of the things that I hated about Sin 1. It was like listening to two 11 year olds babble on.
Also, it's a given that he's going to refer to Half-Life - it's the FPS that sets the bar for the genre, especially heavily story driven ones.

I liked Blade's talking. It gave 'im character.

I personally thought HL2 was kinda boring. Maybe it'll get more interesting when we get some more story with the coming episodes.

If that's the case, I demand a checkbox marked 'idiot' that I can untick.
