  1. Apologies if this has been posted already... Found this on a site at GameBorder.com, they are offering a ton of free games. Ghost Recon is on that list! Click here for a direct link to Ghost Recon. Now everyone can experience how great this game is! Other notable games I see are: Hidden and Dangerous Deluxe & Full Spectrum Warrior Have fun! EDIT: Just read the whole description and it says this: "You will need an Ubi.com account and you must live in the U.S. to play the game." Sorry for the UK'ers
  2. It's all up to personal preference. You can still find [GR] in stores, but you won't find a deal like this in a store. If you like the hard copy, then go for that. If you don't mind having a "digital archive" of GR, then go for Steam. If you don't mind either one, flip a coin. Me personally, once the money is in the bank for me... I'm buying the Steam version. I'm sure that there's plenty of people playing [GR]. They are most likely playing mods or different maps. Since GR is full of both. There aren't anywhere near the amount of people playing like say, Call of Duty 4. But still there's a lot of people playing for an old game. A lot of vets who know what they are doing as well. So if you do get back into GR, then expect to get a lot of mods lol. This site has a lot of the popular mods out there, if not all of them
  3. Very true, I still prefer the hard copies. However, I also like to put my games up in storage. So Steam is becoming a great way of doing games. I'm growing on it. When I want to launch a game, I don't have to go searching through my shelf for the game. I just double click the game I wanna play and voila. Plus I never did pick up GRAW2 for the PC, so this is a great way for me to get that game and have a digital copy of the other GR's, since my GR games are a little scratched (I didn't take care of my games back then).
  4. Not really sure, it doesn't list regions anywhere. Languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish That's what it says on the page, but I don't think we can go entirely off that. Considering rookie can't get it apparently.
  5. Should be, all the games that I have bought over steam have been compatible with the original CD/DVD versions. It's the same game, just distributed a different way. Steam does have their own patch system though. Same patch, but it just auto-updates for you. Mods work the same way as usual, just in a different directory (Steam directory).
  6. Sorry if this is either posted in the wrong section, or if it has been posted already. I didn't see it posted anywhere else. Anyways, just logged on to Steam and noticed they released the Ghost Recon Collection for $36. Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon® Complete Pack You get: Ghost Recon Desert Siege Island Thunder GRAW 1 GRAW 2 Great deal for those who haven't gotten some of these yet. Or those who would like to have it in digital format. You can also purchase separately.
  7. If any of you guys are still interested... I'll definitely want to play with some people who will take it seriously. Not just rush through and everyone goes in Rambo style. Which is the main reason I haven't completed all the maps yet. Actually, I just end up trying solo, which has worked out for some maps. I have all the map packs for GRAW2, so I don't know if that will be a problem. They are well worth the 5 or 6 bucks though! If you don't want to buy them, I can simply delete them so we can play. Or in fact, I don't think you need to worry if one person has the pack and the other doesn't. It was like that in GRAW1, we couldn't play together if one had a map pack and the other didn't. But anyways, my gamertag is C1trousMexican. Just hit me up and send me a message saying something like you got it from gr.net or any other way of letting me know you got it from here. Doesn't matter who's host to me either. Just don't quit.
  8. Sorry if this isn't the place for this topic, but I couldn't find a forum topic suitable for this. So I figured I'd post in the forum that's most read. I was reading an article and this group was holding an interview with Ubisoft, asking them a bunch of questions. One of the questions was: lavalant asks: I'm a longtime fan of the old Ghost Recon 1 games on Xbox 1 and PC, mainly becuase they were more realistic, with one-hit kills, no recharging health-bars and massive levels. The newer Ubisoft shooters seem geared towards a mass market. Are there any plans to release or re-release any of these old super-realistic shooters on next-gen consoles? Great question, here's the response: Phil Therien: I doubt we will ever go back to really hardcore only shooters. The market was too narrow for it to be a viable business choice. We would like to be able to please both sides but compromises have to be made. We have some ideas to improve on the situation though - keep in mind however that we want our games to be accessible to as many people as possible, otherwise we just couldn't keep making games. Hopefully they'll continue to make games for the PC that's a bit more realistic over the console version (ie: GRAW). But it doesn't look like it. I hope it's not the end of the GR series on the PC. They can throw in a 'realistic' mode in the games for the 'narrow' market, but do you think they will? Read the whole article here if you want.
  9. Awesome, getting this now! 50% done. Nice price too. Kinda came out of no where also lol.
  10. So uh, is there a place to check out the changes? Still curious to know what was changed.
  11. I bought mine in January 2006, more than 12 months... But I feel compelled to answer these questions. I am NOT a console fanboy, far from it. Any other questions, feel free to ask. I'll be more than happy to answer them. I'm assuming you are considering purchasing a 360, if so, what decision are you most leaning on? If you decide to get one, feel free to add me to XBox Live. C1trousMexican is my gamertag. Anyone else feel free to add me as well, it won't bother me.
  12. Don't mean to nag, or add on to the 100 beta questions. But I got an e-mail a week ago stating that since I tested some of the beta patches, that they "invited" me to the beta. So I filled out the survey, and I still haven't gotten any e-mail back. So I was wondering, has anyone? Am I missing something? I'm not talking about the fileplanet crap either. Talking about the ubisoft e-mail invites (Just incase someone misinterprets.) If this has already been answered, sorry.
  13. Wonder if there will be a forum setup here for GRAW2 Beta? Got my e-mail this morning.
  14. Yeah I don't get that... The FAMAS is in the MP demo... lol Pretty lame if you ask me...
