It's available on PC, and seems like it's even better than on 360. The problem is that the system requirements are a bit steep.

These are the recommended requirements:

* - Windows XP or Windows Vista
* - Intel Core 2 Duo or equivalent
* - 2GB System RAM
* - 8GB free hard disk space
* - DirectX 9.0c or DirectX 10 compatible video card with 512MB of RAM
* - Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi series sound card
* - Internet required for activation (skippable. Ask me if you have trouble doing so)


I tried to run it... and it worked. Kinda. It's just that at one frame per hour is not easy to play. :mrgreen:

I just got Halo 3 and played it - the game dyanmic from the one match I played is much better than the demo. Very well thought out maps.

World in Conflict looks like a great game for strategy fans (or tactical fans, maybe). Not my cup of tea, but I've tried it and it's certainly impressive.

Yeah, I'll be getting that in a few hours. I heard the online is even better than the beta(of course why shouldn't it be). You play campaign yet? That's what I was waiting for, how the story would end.

No, I've been playing it at work during breaks with the communal 360. Once I get home though I'll fire it up for some campaign.

Campaign mode is better. The brutes are much smarter now. Instead of standing around they're intelligence actually seems real. The new maps are pretty cool. By the way did you get the regular disk, collector's, or legendary edition?

I got to play the first level on campaign last night and it is a lot better. The brutes and the rest as a whole are much more intelligent - shooting and retreating and taking cover. I think my favorite new maps so far are Isolation and Epitaph. The only one I haven't tried out yet is the sand one. I just got the regular edition.

Oh, one more theing:

How impressive are the graphics in the campaign? I really didn't expect them to be that nice. I'd say they are on par with any other game out right now. The only beef I have with them are the water effects are just so-so, but if I hadn't been spoiled with Bioshock then I probably wouldn't have even noticed.

I just found a new feature on NCAA Football 08. In career mode, I normally create a QB, and go to a place where I can start. This time, though, I went to USC, thought I'll sit a year or two, and then I'll be ready. I didnt know that if you didnt play your first year, you redshirt. :mrgreen:

Two years later, a sophmore (RS) I am 90 overall, and ready to tear up the Pac-Ten. :mrgreen:

If you destroyed Cal, I'll never forgive you. But if you blew a game for USC, that'll do. :mrgreen:

Hey, man, I'm a Cal fan. USC was too tempting for me to pass up, though.
