  1. I was merely answering your question: "What do we know about the GRAW2 Legacy edition?" Didn't realize I had to verify your address, know your region code and analyze the economics of your situation. Wouldn't have contributed if that was the case. Disregard the info I posted if it's useless to you, but I'm sure others will see your thread title and come in here looking for that very information.
  2. 1-It's UK only 2-It's just GRAW2 and all dlc. No point buying if you already have all this. (like other games have done to get new buyers so they don't have a ton of DLC to get after buying the game for the first time.) 3-The DLC is on a disk that loads it onto your HD, so there's no drive space saved by getting this.
  3. I know some guys that use a monitor and they really like it. For me, I use my 26" LCD tv as my PC monitor and gaming tv. These days you might find a decent LCD PC monitor pretty cheap. PC monitors are essentially HD tv's, but capable of higher resolutions. For instance, my 720P LCD tv is 1360x768. CRT is a regular tv-tube style monitor (just to be sure you're on the same page). You could probably find a 17" LCD monitor for $200 or less for a decent brand. Then you need the VGA adapter for the 360, which I think is $30 or so. Should look really nice, and from what I'm told, the VGA hookup is superior for watching DVD's off of your 360. Look at this, 19" Dell, has VGA and DVI input. $199 You could use for your PC and for your 360, but need a sound system (no speakers built in of course) http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?sk...d=1195598242744
  4. I started out with my 360 on an SDTV. GRAW, to me, didn't look any better than GR2SS did. SS looked about as good as any game would with the limitations of SDTV. However, if it makes you feel any better, backwards compatible games look much WORSE on a HDTV than a 360 game does on a SDTV. So if you play a lot of black box games, they'd look rough in hi-def since they just weren't made for that resolution.
  5. I'd settle for a patch that would make targeting and movement feel good again like it did in GR2SS. Movement and targeting could be tightened up with a patch, I'd assume. If that could be fixed, I know a LOT of people would hop right back on this game with a huge smile on their faces. Doesn't have to be "faster" just not so sloppy and out of control. Can't ask for 1st person, that's not patch material, but surely targeting could be sobered up, and preferably movement too.
  6. I believe we're at 60 now with the DLC that came out yesterday. No need to worry about the Legacy edition, that's just UK and doesn't have any content you can't download now.
  7. Has happened to me a few times, and also in AA:TS, not sure why. Bought a new router, bought a new modem and it happened again I think but then my 360 died. Maybe that was the weakest link. LOL Just got it back and no drops last night. Need to try AA:TS again.
  8. That's what I wanted to hear. Going to the top of the netflix list.
  9. Thanks for the point on this, works very well! I'm using my wireless 360 controller and the USB adapter. Nice to play from the couch too. Just never could get used to k/m for FPS games, and pulling a trigger in a shooter just brings me into the game so much more than clicking a mouse. Have been messing with that application in some other games too, it's got a lot of options. I'll probably be buying the key to keep it the way things are going. $20 is a bit pricey, but I think it'll be worth it unless I find another one, as functional, for less.
  10. Oh take it easy. I'm wondering if the 400 is UK, 800 is US, due to exchange rates. I think members reporting 400 are UK. Sure wouldn't mind 400 though!
  11. From what I've read about AA:TS so far, it sounds even better than ROAS. Upgrading my internet just to be able to host True Soldier rooms.
  12. I don't think online petitions are worth much, they're more statement of the author than anything else. Good sales figures for America's Army True Soldier, [Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising], Rogue Warrior, ArmA 2, Ground Branch will speak MUCH louder than any petition. A forum petition represents a few fans. Sales figures for the games that GR should be can't be faked and represents an actual market. ESPECIALLY America's Army, since it's what GR could have easily been. So, buy AA:TS or GR may die.
  13. I don't think RSE has made any bad calls, in fact, they may be the only thing keeping GR a good title, but Ubi has made bad calls in choosing the direction to take GR. MP is still good, but it's simply gotten old and repetitious, needing to be updated. SP needs to go back to a more militant feel, not playing a role in a movie. The "24" style of conflict and storyline is really NOT good in these games (GR & Rainbow, that is). MP needs to have actual objectives, not flares to defend. Controls in SP need to be tight and quick as in previous games, not slow and frustrating like in GRAW 1/2--and MP movement needs a better feel as well, although it has been better than SP in the last 2 games. Movement in SP & MP simply feels sloppy and annoying. GR is going to have to fight to stay on top in 2008. ArmA 2, [Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising], Rogue Warrior, Warhound and possibly Ground Branch are to come out--all heavy hitters in realistic shooter gaming. We're no longer going to be limited to GR & Rainbow, so both games need to step up or risk getting lost among some potentially very strong titles. It would be a shame to see these old favorites just fade away. We need "GR" without the "AW". Get back to basics, not gadgets, and improve gameplay. That means an open realistic feel in SP and a MP that adds realism and mimics true special forces missions, not game types that all feel like training missions. The communities are dying off because the game is going the wrong direction and stagnating. I still like it, but it's simply not the top gaming choice it was for me when GR2SS was out. Ubi doesn't need to try to force this new game style down our throats anymore. Time to cut losses, change direction and get back on track with a great game. I hope they do that, and soon.
  14. My understanding is that's for balance between players. GR isn't supposed to be a twitch/reflex shooter, so that keeps players on equal footing. I support that, although a LITTLE bit of sensitivity control would be nice--just a lot less than other games. However, there is NO excuse for the horribly sluggish and frustratingly slow controls in the SP campaign. Played through barely using the scope in the SP since it was so disgustingly slow--as with other controls. Seems to be a half second delay any time you wanted to do something. That's the main thing that keeps me from playing the SP--it's aggravating as all hell.
  15. I'll delete Ick from my list and do this during lunch.
