I’m buying my copy for the PC, but yes I am VERY much looking forward to this.
oh, PC. Well, maybe I won’t buy a new console then
Stuck in xbox 360 land… :/
For anyone that’s interested Signal Studios is doing some live streams on Twitch this week, discussing the game. The recording of the first stream is here at http://www.twitch.tv/signalstudios/v/9711864 and the Joe commentary starts at 10:37.
Never played one of these games but I’m totally getting this just for G.I. Joe.
After seeing the game in action I only have a couple of complaints:
1) It’s way too easy to completely decimate the entire defending team using one laser turret in your own base.
2) A.I. puts up almost no challenge whatsoever so online is the only way to go.
3) The vehicles are awesome but I was disappointed to see when you call
in a V.A.M.P. or M.O.B.A.T. it’s not Clutch or Steeler driving. Despite
the fact you see Clutch on the box art when the vehicle deploys,
(awesome feature btw), it’s just Grunt characters at the wheel.
4) Totally minor nitpick but I’m a real stickler for details and I noticed that Tan Clutch has a green helmet. :S
