Shadowrun goes gold with these images

Shadowrun goes gold with these images

The much maligned Shadowrun is now officially gold, and will be released at the end of the month on both Xbox 360 and PC. It will be the first time outside the MMORPG genre that PC and 360 gamers will be able to share the same game world, and fight against each other. 5 images inside.

Will try the demo 1st its forza 2 a week later :D

Yea- what happened to the demo we were promised? Is it going to be one of those- game first- demo second things?

I'm tempted- a LOT- but with Forza 2 on every desktop I own... my budget is dictated and spent!

Who knows.. the demo could still show up before the release. Even if it doesn't, this is definitely one I want to try before I buy (or rent).

This is brilliant timing. Obviously, the one thing everybody will be searching for at the end of May is a good multiplayer FPS.

I can only assume its a result of the art style, but I HATE the 'look' of this game.

i dont think it looks that good tbh,but the major reason im holding back with excitement is the fact that most people whjo play online pc games,use trainers/hacks,that give them GOD mode or infinate bullets,hope this dont break the fun on 360,i knoe people glitch,but pc gaming is the king of glitching

I bet when its released, the whole 360 vs pc thing won't work and we'll have to wait for a patch...
Commented on 2007-05-09 20:30:27
Yep, the 360 vs. PC is not going to work out; you can already call the winner.

I don't think cheats are going to be a problem, as the 360 would most definitely catch any altered or foreign files, but without a mouse and keyboard 360 players are dead meat against a seasoned PC player.

It might be fun, but if I want to win a match without it being totally based on luck, I'd play on the PC.

It would be like The Incredible Hulk picking a fight with a Down's Syndrome kid.

You`ve got NO idea what you are talking about! You can read all over the internet that the game is balanced and that you won`t be able to tell wether you`re playing against a console or pc player!
I see some people still buy into PR bullshit..

Even if they limit PC players to balance the game (i.e. by locking mousesensitivity at the same low speed as that of a controller) my bet is skilled PC players will still own the Xbox 360 players.. Only thing is, I doubt many skilled PC FPS gamers will play this game because there's plenty of other (dare I say better) competitive online MP FPS games on the PC.. It's good that MS tries it though, consoles v PC is a innovation I've always wanted to see how it worked out..

I'm pretty sure I heard FASA say there would be a pre-release demo of this game.

If any game needs it, it's this one.

I've not heard great things about the PC version though, the reviews may be interesting. I'm keen to try it out on a console for sure.

Ive spoken directly with 5 or so people on the BETA and they couldnt tell who was playing pc or 360

Messy graphics

After playing the beta of this game, it's definitely deep. But there's a problem with that. You'd need a VERY well organized team, each with their own race and responsibilities they're assigned. That's hard to do with pick up and play. I found myself using the troll with a chaingun a lot of the time mostly just so I didn't have to rely on my team mates who didn't want to organize a offense or defense.

"Ive spoken directly with 5 or so people on the BETA and they couldnt tell who was playing pc or 360" THANK YOU.. That`s what I was saying..
Cheers
BTW: Why was my post "moved" to this bulletin thing?

I enjoyed the beta but the full price for just a multi player game put me off. Oh well guess the demo will do me fine enough :(

You gotta be kidding me, I was in the beta as well and I thought the gameplay was awesome. To me, this is a must buy.

This game never should have happened.
Commented on 2007-05-10 02:12:30
graphically the game look really smooth, but low res testures and a truely horrible art style just kills the game for me.

And how many of those 5 were PC players? My bet is none..

Was the beta even open to PC gamers?

But like I said, you won't see a lot of PC players in this game on crossplatform servers anyway.. The reasons why are obvious.. Limited controlability (to balance gameplay with consolegamers), and *requires* Windows Vista and a paid Live Gold account.. This will bassicly be a pure Xbox 360 game with only a couple of PC players in it who are lost or just curious how this crossplatform thing works..

read the ign article, it basically says that the console version is much better and you will totally have an advantage over pc gamers. crazy but true
