Owchies, now THAT needs patching!

I thought you probably had an extra review code/copy...

Anyway, that sounds like too much hassle - and I'm guessing achievements will be disabled anyway. And it's a great game apparently, might as well pay for it. :)

My sentiments exactly. You won't be able to save, won't be able to continue - and you won't get the achievements - but if you want a bit more of a play with the game, it's at least one way till it's patched.

I'll cull the front page story off and kill this thread by the close of play today

On a related note, as a massive Super Metroid fan, I'm really really looking forward to playing this (haven't bought it yet as I'm still working through a few other games).

I initially had concerns about the extremely generic art design - and a few of the reviews I've read have criticised that aspect of the game - but I'm very pleasantly surprised that the game underneath has reviewed so well and is apparently really quite special. Another one to add to the essential downloadable titles list for this year, it seems.

Edit: Peej, might as well just make this the official SC thread now.

OK better idea - I'll just trim the posts instead...

I was pleasantly surprised by the demo. It took a bit of getting used to the aiming but once it clicks in, the game's wonderfully fluid and quite "mature" in content (surprisingly more mature than GOW ever was).

I'll be dropping the points on it once I'm done with Trials HD and Splosion Man

I only meant to play this for about 20 minutes last night. When I next looked at the clock I had been playing for about an hour and a half - that hasn't happened for a while.

I did get a bug right at the start where the pistol didn't appear in the interrogation room. I almost thought the game was going to be very frustrating until I realised it was a bug.

Excellent so far.

I've been playing, Trials HD was making me go grey. Fired it up, Mrs Murbal instantly said "this looks good". Praise indeed.

I think I've given up on Trials HD for now...

Bit more of this wouldn't go amiss though.

Anyone heard about the move to boycott this game?

Something to do with it being based on a world created by Orson Scott Card, and OSC being a bit of an anti-gay-marriage campaigner who believes homosexuality is a defect.

Hmm.

I would rather boycott it because his "novels" are shit.

Worth the wait, so far. Top stuff.
