Ubisoft's and Midway's Wheelman will be released tomorrow on X360, PS3 and PC, and here are the First 10 minutes of it in video. Tons of people were positively surprised by the demo, while I myself was thrilled that they finally sorted out the framerate. The uni has kept me extremely busy lately so I haven't been able to play it much, but initially it's a bit better than I thought it would be. The city feels a bit dead and some vehicle controls and odd animations can be all over the place, the AI can also be pretty stupid. But the missions have been pretty enjoyable so far, so it will be interesting to see if the they will have any variety further in. I'm off now again, but if there's interest for a part 2 of the video I'll put it up tonight.
The video takes off just as the main mission in the demo ends.

I'm already not playing Battlefield because I'm not crazy with what DICE is doing with it. They've got a lot of work to do. (7 Hours ago)
EA is far from out of the woods, but I don't think this is the steep downhill incline you imagine for the industry. I'm not buying the doom and gloom. (7 Hours ago)
If they can develop revenue streams that don't negatively impact the user experience.. most will try. (7 Hours ago)
And while publishers may want to pursue service models, there are relatively good ways of handling that. Add to this the fact that most developers don't really want to ruin their games. (7 Hours ago)
EA is already dropping the ball all over the place. But people are reacting to it, more than ever. (7 Hours ago)
