Ooh, thanks for the heads up - I'll try to find the time to fire up the old box.

Great to hear that, Whizzo... No Live/demo for me, so keep bringing the positives, boys.

This is still one of the few games this year I'm genuinely excited about.

When is it out?

Near the end of April, I think.

The demo is Rather Nice and I like the fact that the Drones are humans! :D

*Really* happy that this is multi-platform. I was a little gutted when I initially heard about the game as I assumed it was 360 only.

Any hint of the loading being as bad as the first?

VERY nice indeed. There's a little Xbox1-eyness about it now and again, but that aside the demo really does a good job of selling the game to me. Love the fact that they've retained that lovely block-tastic front end too.

The missus kept moaning because she said that it couldn't be Vin Diesel's voice they used. I think it probably was, he really does sound that punch-drunk :)

My missus closed her eyes and went 'oooohhhhhh' every time he spoke.

Quite offputting really. The tart :D

She does know he's a member of the blue parrot club doesn't she?

She refuses to believe me, though, to be fair, whenever she tells me that she fancies someone, I'll tell her I've seen them smoking pole on the internets :D

Well he's definitely a bit of a Gamer, as it were -

Wikipedia: Diesel has played Dungeons & Dragons for over twenty years and wrote the foreword for the commemorative book 30 Years of Adventure: A Celebration of Dungeons & Dragons. In the 30th Anniversary of Dungeons & Dragons issue of Dragon Magazine, they examine the fact that Diesel played Dungeons & Dragons, and reveal that he had a fake tattoo of his character's name, "Melkor," on his stomach while filming xXx.

According to an interview with Curt Schilling, Vin Diesel has a huge interest in World of Warcraft, as evidenced by the installation of a computer game system on one of his cars.

Vin Diesel has a daughter, Hania Riley, born April 2, 2008, with his girlfriend, model Paloma Jimenez.


It must be Fun Fact Fhursday or something.

That's my trick too ! She's also tall, and once told me she couldn't date anyone shorter than her, so whoever she likes in films or on the telly is either short, gay, or both.

Looking forward to this one - the demo might tempt me out of my voluntary sabbatical from gaming. Not too bothered about any Xbox1-ness, as it was probably one of the best two looking games on the old behemoth.

I think the fact that this doesn't look much better than Butcher Bay is testament to how incredible and stunning the original was.

This still looks pretty nice, but more importantly, they've definitely got that special vibe going again; loved the demo, especially the little stretch of gameplay controlling the drones.

I'd just started playing through the original a month or so back, now there's no real point, is there? \o/

Wonder how well this will do, though?
