WOW.
What an article. Surprising.
1. This is the first time I see disclosed all the multiplayer game modes.
2. The "tone" of the article is that this is a very complicated game

Is it the best way to first "showcase" new information EIDOS?

But at least it looks like the multiplayer modes are disclosed so I can start writing about them as well? :D :D :D

You guys talking about the release date speculation which does not really matters until EIDOS makes a statement.

BUT

Is it only me, but some other people found it new to have some words about the multiplayer modes for example?????????
Why not talk about something that is really interesting?

if you saw april 29 every where why didnt you say so? I checked the release date discussion you never said april 29 at any time. And what does the threads i made have to do with the fact is comming out april 29?

It seems pretty neat, but I won't make any judgements until I've actually played it. >.>

Man that a pretty damaging preview to the game. A lot of people will read that. I thought the devs learned their lesson with the BSM about throwing new players into the game with no training.

At the very least he should of had someone from Edios sitting next to him explaining how to play. Chances are though he had a PR person around him who never played the game and couldn't help him or left him in a room by himself.


I've probably have gotten a dozen friends to buy and love BSM. The way I did it was having the play the demo online against only me, while I explained to them how to play in voice chat. I'd have them control unit by unit and have them attack me while I explained how to give orders, damage control, etc. When they learn to play they love the game.

The dev's need to find a way to teach/train people how to play the game first before they play missions.

easily one of the most ignorant selfish things i've ever read. HOW CAN YOU NOT TELL THE DIFF BETWEEN AN AMERICAN SHIP AND A JAPANESE SHIP? not to mention the RELUCTANCY to learn a game. this a ten year old? GOD I CANT WAIT FOR THIS GAME IT LOOKS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
