    Apparently MS Europe has just taken all the steam out of Microsoft's Game Developer's Conference announcement.

    I'll press A to pass. Played about 1 level of it and was not impressed. Glad I only borrowed a copy of it..

    Well according to this he spouts out a long list of technical features, but I am more interested in gameplay. Like not pressing A to dive but instead slamming into a wall to take cover. I also don't really like the rev-up for the chainsaw and then the canned animation -although I do love the chainsaw.

    I assume you are talking about the first game unless you have some sort of time travel device.
    Beware the perils of time travel.
    Have you not watched Terminator, or Back to the Future, or the Magic School Bus?

    Those poor kids never saw it coming....


    Unlike some of you, I can't wait for the new one. Hopefully the story is deeper and better explained than the first. This game has potential for a gripping story!

    Looks like I might have a reason to dust off my 360 in 2008.

    There had better be a story this time. I really liked the potential of Emergence Day, but the actual game plot, not so much. Not to mention that the ending was so sudden, like it was cut half way through.

    Hopefully there will be some "HOLY SHIT" moment in it again. I will forever remember me and my brother facing a Berserker for the first time in Co-Op. Awesome moment. :D

    I was actually afraid of that Berserker. He's probably one of the few enemies in a game that had me freaked out when I saw him...

    There WAS a backstory: Fenix's past plus the Locust surviving and saying that humans didnt know the real reason why they were fighting. At least it left me wondering about what they would expand on in the sequel.

    That pressing A makes him money. I'll continue to press A for apathy.

    As far as the story goes- I was lost. Actually reading the manual gave me more info. I would flaw the game because of that, but I honestly think, and I have said this before, that the story was about 4 guys having a really bad day. And for that, it had a good story.
