Mine goes way back to a game called Galaxy Andromida (later becoming Nexus the Jupiter Incident through a new publisher) from Mithis and CDV. I was so stoked on this game (esp after the leaked tech demo) that I wanted to see what else Mithis did and after awhile I found a leaked tech trailer (linked in another thread if curious) for a game called Midway. I saw so much potential in that game I put it on my must have list. I talked about it in just about every forum I belonged too including the defunct Gone Gold.

I found out about it here while looking for the Just Cause Forum....and being a Japanese Navy buff, this oppurtuinity to command IJN ships was hard to skip over...I just hope to see this game...

Heard about while playing a Game called NF. Found it more interesting. Hope they have more Battle ships coming..... other wise I would kinda find the game a bit lame. The Texas was one of the worst BB's:cool: the US had.

I heard about it at the Games Convention in Leipzig earlier this year when some very nice Eidos folks were highlighting it. On a very big screen wall. :D

So you went to the show. Currious, were they showing the 360 version or the PC?

BTW. I met some of the Eidos people at the 2004 E3 and I agree. Really nice people.

Which video did you get? The one from E3 or this last one? When the E3 2006 trailer hit I posted it everywhere. I thought the E3 trailer was the best of all the trailers I had seen.

I read it in a pc-magazine in summer 2005, then about a few months i lost my interest, sometimes i saw something about this game on the internet. Now a few days ago i saw there was a new site :D

I'm a big WWII buff and about a year ago I stumbled upon this little gem, Figured I'd hop on the forum and make some friends.

I'm interested in playing anything WWI or WWII. I've played Close Combat & Codename Panzers, AOE (non WWII). What other RTS games do you love and can you recommend?

Age of Empires III is a great game,but doesn't compare to Company of Heroes.

I don't really remeber the first time i learned of BS, but i know it was over a year+ ago. When it was first said to come out on the Xbox1. Besides the wait i'm more than glad it moved over to the x360 instead.

I used to come to this webpage afew times a week just waiting and waiting for a update and also waiting for the forums to open.

Hey Dadio AOE owns, but anyways, I too learned about it on 360. can't wait for the game, the walkthrough trailer is much better than the other in my oppinion. Anyways, I just heard from some people, NO CORSAIR? How can that be?

PS. I too love history, anyother good war games, any genra.

I just bought an Xbox 360 over Christmas and I downloaded the trailer on our 42" rear projection LCD running at 1080i. I think the movie was 780 but still looked very good.

There was a preview of the game amid the hieroglyphics on the pillars leading into the temple of Cheops in Egypt, carved by ancient Egyptian scribes.

Said something about a demo coming out "soon"

I'm in the same boat (no pun intended). After waiting for what seemed like forever for it to come out on Xbox it got pushed back again and I lost touch.

Got a 360 for Christmas and a few weeks ago was on GameStop.com and BS in the coming soon section. Saw the walkthrough demo on Xbox Marketplace and was blown away. Move over GOW.

I heard about it from a dutch website, that was actually quite funny because they had an articil about a new delayel of the game, normally those things really hurt, but because i never heard about the game, i became very intereseted.
Another thing that makes this game a must-buy for me is that i saw the senkan yamamato in a trailer, that ship totally blew anything before him away and i really like to sail with it (and if it's not the senkan yamamato, it still rocks because it's a very, very big ship in the trailer).

I know about it since it was first announced to come to the xbox, been following it ever since.

Heard bout this one a ways back when I was an active member of the WWII Online community...known from 2001-2006 as Grunt on them forums and in game.

Then I killed Grunt and Lester Ziggs was born. I mean let's face it...Admiral
Ziggs sounds buch better than Admiral Grunt anyday. That and the fact there was no way in hell I was going to be able to get the gamertag Grunt for XBL
