    I'm looking forward to trying the demo out. The verdict is still out in terms of how I feel about Crackdown, I'm hoping the demo gives me a definitive "yes or no" answer regarding whether or not I should buy this game.

    That's also how I feel.

    I don't like GTA style games.. but a GTA style game with superpowers AND co-op? Just maybe.

    I was going to add something to that but that's actually the most concise description I've heard for this game so far.

    Bravo, sir.

    Edit: I also wanted to chime in with this article on Crackdown's graphics.

    They are, to say the least, suprisingly complex.

    I totally forgot about this because I've spent over 24 hours playing WoW since Burning Crusade came out.

    So, does "VERY SOON" mean before the 20th?

    EDIT: I just realized that Ghost Rider guy that whored out this game hardcore types just like the developers on their blog...

    Someone goes balls deep into the Demo, releasing a metric fuckton of screenshots.

    http://70.85.73.36/images/cddemo/slides/cddemo01.html

    My favorite image:

    cddemo03.jpg

    He also apparently fell through the world at one point, which is kind of distressing.

    Then again, it is only a Demo.

    Reminds me of when HL2 came out, but that thread was...massive. :shock:

    But yes, it comes out, I get to play for two hours and be in bed to get a good 4 hours of sleep before class! Woooo

    I am also up.

    Though I haven't slept and I was up all night because I was doing coursework, not for Crackdown as such, but hey. Ticking off the minutes. ;) If I'm lucky the download might be done by the time I'm back from university. <_<

    yes, for some reason I always forget that these demos are

    A) usually really big
    B) take forever to download


    my poor roomate who sleeps in our living room is trying to sleep. I may just let him and hit this in the morning. oh well, at least I can say I downloaded it right when it came out.

    Well... it's pretty awesome.

    Agency Supercar is okay. It's your standard fastmoving sportsmobile.
    Agency Truck Cab is borderline useless. Slow, can't turn for crap, etc.
    Agency SUV is all manner of awesomeness.

    I will let you know more when I see more of the game.

    With some careful jumping in the garage you can make it up into the Agency Grounds proper (there are some ladder-like rungs you can grab near the starting police cruisers) Exploring up there yields a number of hidden orbs and some Peacekeepers. One of the peacekeepers is carrying a "Long Shot" sniper rifle which is damned awesome.

    How much armor/health/whatever does the truck cab have? Can you drive-by? With full aiming like in Saints Row? If you can, that'd make one bitching vehicle for times when you need to shoot whatever the hell moves.

    DAMMIT DOWNLOAD FASTER!

    ...I don't think it's even downloading. :(

    No firing guns while inside a car.

    Health is just a red bar that goes down when you collide with anything or get shot at.

    When you hit two stars in any stat you get a warning message, "You've hit two stars in Driving, you have 30 minutes of play time remaining."

    Also, there's a notice on the loading screen that says the demo has increased skill progression speed. Hopefully it's drastically advanced because it goes up really damn fast.

    Well, if the cars have any number of noteworthy differences in durability, then the truck cab is probably durable as all fuck.

    Well, from what I've tried so far, the Agency cars seem the only ones worth driving.

    1. They can take a whippin' while civilian cars seem to be made of tinfoil.

    2. You can flip them back over if you wind up upside-down. Can't do that with civilian cars.

    3. They level up, civilian cars don't. I'm going to try and make it to max driving and see what kind of awesome tricked-out rides they become.

    Well apparently with the accelerated skill progression it is just possible to max your skills out entirely inside the half an hour limit, plus all the forms of the vehicles are available in the demo. So, uh, have fun, I guess. :P
