  1. Unbelievably, it has been moved up. The release is now set for 2/24 in North America. It was listed for 3/3 along with the PC version of Hawx. Now Hawx PC has been delayed a couple of weeks (3/17 now). That is probably better anyway as I was cringing at spending $100 on games oin the same day :)

  2. Well, it looks like the Rainbow 6: Vegas patch is on the same row boat. Nice Job U-blow-soft, 0-2 today on meeting your own published deadlines. Is there anything that UBI doesn't screw up on release? :whack:

    Oh yeah and the Direct2Drive folks, UBI has throttled your bandwidth so you don't make the deadline either...


    FYI-The Rainbow 6 Vegas patch is available on 3dgamers.com :D

  3. I looked up the contact for the Ubisoft US office, and sent this e-mail:

    Hi Jamie,

    I am a forty year old man who has been a loyal Ubisoft supporter for many years. I have several gaming systems, and I have purchased (and registered) many Ubisoft products each year. I especially have liked the first-person shooters that you have put out. I am very excited about the upcoming release of GRAW2 for the PC. However, I am appalled to learn on the ghostrecon.net site that your company has cut-off communication between the Developer of GRAW2 (GRIN) and the fans. One of the best things about GRAW 1 and 2 was to see how the people at GRIN listened and provided feedback to the fans of the game. Maybe Ubisoft just doesn’t care about PC users anymore, but I tell you that I will never purchase a 1st person shooter for my other gaming systems (I rely on the mouse and keyboard). Hopefully someone at your company can reverse this unbelievably dumb (and pr nightmare) decision, or I will start having second thoughts about purchasing any future Ubisoft program. Thanks for your consideration.

  4. GRAW is my favorite game, and the videos that came out last year comparing explosions with and without the Physx card really looked neat. When I found that the card was $300, there was no way I would spend the money. However, I found that the BFG card was down to $150 so I purchased one last week. I can say that it adds some neat effects to GRAW 1, and I am really looking forward to see it in action next week with GRAW 2.

  5. Okay here's mine, I've even included a date, we can make it a fun competition to see who gets closest.

    London, UK– MARCH 22, 2007 – Today Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest video game publishers, is pleased to announce that it has decided to devote additional time to perfect the next installment in its award-winning squad-based military shooter, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter™. The game will launch worldwide on PC in June 2007. The additional time devoted to the development of this title will allow Ubisoft to offer gamers the best episode ever of the award-winning Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon franchise and will enable the game’s development teams to optimize the game code for the very best gaming experience. The delay of the release date will not impact Ubisoft’s revenue forecasts for the fiscal year, but it might impact on your sanity.

    I likes it! :yes:

  6. I like to pick-up Prima Guides, especially when they are out before a game. The Prima Guide for GRAW2 is out. While it does not list a specific platform on the cover, it does list 360 achievements at the end. Does anyone know if the guide describes the main missions of the PC version? I purchased the Vegas guide last year, and the missions were pretty much the same. Thanks!

  7. :rofl:

    Every evening for the past few months I have been checking out this forum to learn all I can about the game. I am really pumped about this game, and the chief reason is the fact that Bo and his team have answered so many questions for us. I went out to EB Games last night and pre-ordered the game--something I never do (I am cheap, I always wait for Best Buy to get a game so I can price match for a month). Thanks for posting Bo and the Grin Team :yes:
