    Nope, Toys R Us broke the street date. It's still coming out on the 21st.

    I'm finally getting a 360 next week, and this is one of the first games I'm buying. (The other being Gears, of course.) I can't wait!

    I think I'd rather get an FPS for the computer, for the mouse control and the better graphics (my 360's TV is 13 years old), but I don't know if my computer will be able to handle it.

    Will the PC demo be a good judge of if my computer will run the full thing?

    Gears is not that great. Buy RS:Vegas, too, or if you're on a tight budget, just Vegas.

    Gears is one of the most average game on the console market.

    Lucas is right, Gears is average, at best. Vegas is amazing. And Rulez, you play Virtua Tennis 3. You have no place in any video game talk.

    Vegas is sick. This I admit. I want that game.

    Buuuuut Gears is a fucking sick game. I would argue possibly the best graphics on the console, maybe beaten by GRAW 2 or something. Consider when it came out, also. That game is really, really solid.

    Bioshock's graphics blow Gears' out of the water (no pun intended, since Bioshock is all underwater). But that aside, I dislike Gears' gameplay as well. Maybe it's just me, but I'm looking for something more in a game than everyone grabbing a shotgun and running at each other, then circle strafing and shooting.

    I am also excited for this game, but I don't have a 360. I'll end up getting it for the PC.

    For other non-360 owners, the system requirements are crazy. Here is a link:
    http://www.digitalbattle.com/2007/07...ents-released/

    If you don't want to read the page here they are:

    Minimum Requirements

    CPU - Pentium 4 2.4GHz Single Core processor
    System RAM - 1GB
    Video Card - Direct X 9.0c compliant video card with 128MB RAM (NVIDIA 6600 or better/ATI X1300 or better, excluding ATI X1550).
    Sound Card - 100% direct X 9.0c compatible sound card
    Hard disc space - 8GB free space

    Recommended Requirements
    CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo processor
    System RAM - 2GB
    Video card - DX9 - Direct X 9.0c compliant video card with 512MB RAM (NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GT or better) / DX10 - NVIDIA GeForce 8600 or better
    Sound Card - Sound Blaster X-Fi series (Optimized for use with Creative Labs EAX ADVANCED HD 4.0 or EAX ADVANCED HD 5.0 compatible sound cards)


    I got my computer about 2 weeks ago, and they just meet some of the requirements. Though it should run fine with any low-level gaming computer.

    On another topic, what do you think is more worth the $50, Command and Conquerer 3: Tiberium Wars, or Bioshock?

    My best friend has had a 360 since launch, and I bought him RS:Vegas for Christmas. We played the fuck out of that game. It's loads of fun, but the graphics are terrible. Also, I'm going to be getting Call of Duty when it comes out, which should satisfy that niche for me. I'm on-again off-again with Gears. He's completely addicted to it, and I've had a lot of fun with the multiplayer, but then I get burned out on it. He's moving to another state in a few weeks, so I'm mostly getting it so we can play multiplayer and hang out. I cannot wait until Call of Duty 4 comes out, though. That game is going to seriously rock. Oh, and Army of Two looks amazing, too.

    The previously mentioned friend of mine just showed up and gave me a pre-order and a gift card for Bioshock as a thank you for watching his dog. Awesome!

    The demo kicks ass. I cannot wait to get this game. Best part of all is that my birthday is the 22nd. Its a lock that someone will pick it up for me.

    Thanks to a loyal friend at EB Games, I already have a copy of Bioshock. It is fantastic. When it comes out, it is a must buy.
