They so stole the reward system from Call of duty 4 ! Fine by me, because that was one thing that kept me playing Cod4 online.

What's about the face mapping feature using the live vision cam. Is it still included in RS Vegas 2 ?
No word about it yet....

Speaking of Call of Duty 4, am i the only one that noticed they had a "sprint" feature also? :- )

It doesn't look much better than R6V to be honest... Though probably the game wasn't a priority for Ubisoft an the most skilled programmers have been working on Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell. I'm going to buy it regardless as I missed COD4 and I want to play the next online multiplayer shooter everyone else will play.

I loved the single/multiplayer play of RB6Vegas... although it doesn't standup to COD4 graphically at all. Hopefully the gameplay will be improved in the sequel. It was already a righteous game IMO, but it could use some help in the "looks" department.

Looks slightly better than the first, bought on release!

they learned from the fans and hopefully have fixed the flaws like random spawning enemies in terrorist hunt, the visuals look nicer imo, and new weapons are expected, nice to be able to see your exp progress in game, also add all that talk about destructible cover and bullet penetration and you got one hell of a game... so what if theyve went the route of cod4 regardless of what anyone think i still think rb6 vegas is better than cod4, firing the weapons in cod4 feels so unrealistic and its as if theres no real big difference in firing the guns other than fire rate. did u see that small clip of the guy actually sprinting, man that is awesome, and seeing as the cod series is going back to ww2 instead of some other era like vietnam i dont care too much anymore especially since hells highway will shame all ww2 era games once it graces the 360, and ps3. rb6 ftw

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog that's my understanding of it anyway based on the little i've read about it. seems like it'll happen though. (25 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog less risks (not like ubi are particualrly great in that regard anyway) and just barrier for them to do their job. (28 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (28 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, for the first time in BioWare's history, they are finally using full facial capture to record the actor's performance. Plus its the first time the Mass Effect team is using the Frostbite engine. (36 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @nostradamus: BioWare talks Mass Effect Andromeda squadmates, cut content and that missing release date: [url] Read 5th answer. (38 minutes ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Moonwalker: well, i'll on a leg and say its a "lie". It seems on par with DA:I, and if they think thats fine for a reveal trailer, then it doesn't bode well for the final product. (42 minutes ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus almost finishing jak and daxter. So much fun. Whay are a pos knack 2 being made, and not a new Jak? (50 minutes ago)
