    Actually, Joe, I took your advice and did not buy Commando 3 (or WOTB or whatever) so I missed out on the pain on both counts. :thumb

    What's wrong with the beta? I got WOTB but don't have a gold account anyways.

    Commando 3 is decent.

    And what the fuck do people expect from a damn beta?

    Yeah, but I decided to wait for Bionic Commando because it's bionic.
    Bionic > Decent.

    They expect to actually be able to, you know, try the beta. When you have a few hundred people saying "Hey, the beta is locking up before I even get to a match", then there's a serious problem. Pure bait and switch tactics.

    Works fine offline and network issues are the main reason there is a beta.

    Every little helps.

    Makes it really hard to test the network stability and reliability if you can't get on the network. It's basically an offline demo now for a lot of people.

    How is the animation, Twist?

    I was afraid it might seem 'framey'.

    Which I would imagine is being tested for and fixed in the final version.

    Looks and plays like Street Fighter II in high rez. You will not say wow. You may go "huh". It plays good.

    But you can't set the turbo speed, which is annoying. I hate turbo speeds.
