This game uses the same engine as F.E.A.R. and looks just as sweet. IGN gave it a 8.7 out of 10.

Umm... dude. I hate to tell you this but everybody on this forum already knows about this game. :angel:

Also, it just so happens that I bought the game yesterday.

Hell I'll even take a picture of it for you:

I know the wait is the worst. At least that's not the only game I will have before the 360 comes out this Tuesday. I'm picking up 2-3 others tomorrow (Friday's payday).

There's a link to some gameplay and the official site.
Probably allready on gametrailers.com though too.

I must say though, they seem to have put the engine to better use in Condemned than they did in F.e.a.r. I always thought the backgrounds in F.e.a.r. looked a little bland, Condemned seems to have a bit more detail when it comes to the environments. I'm amazed they were able to finish 2 games, using the same newly-built engine, within 2 months of eachother (when one is running on hardware that they didn't even have the final development kits for until a few months ago). Amazing Monolith went from being almost totally silent to working on 2 huge projects at once.

Purchasing a console for a single game is not always a good idea, particulary when the game in question is quite short.

Condemned is a very good game, with plenty ot atmosphere, but there are not many reasons to play it again once completed.

If you like 1 console game chances are you might like a few others out of the 150+ that shoud be released the first 12 months.

I've always wondered if this game was indeed running o nthe FEAR engine, but never saw an official confirmation/press release.
I just figured because they were both from Monolith and developed in parralel with one another

But yeah, this, and PDZ are the only games I'd really like to get my hands on at system launch. I can wait though until next year, when they will be alot cheaper and I have an HDTV that can will appreaciate them :D

Maybe I should have clarified...I am getting an Xbox 360, no questions about that, but the question is do i get it earlier or later. There is only 1 other launch title besides condemned that I am really interested in. And there are a couple other launch titles that look interesting. If both of these titles (condemned and PDZ) are real good, I might get the console sooner than later...

Condemned might be the game that pushes me over the line from "buy later" to "buy now"...

What I have seen from the 360 version it looks pretty sweet but the textures dont look that good..FEAR textures looks much sharper but hey its on the PC hehe..
I gues that the 512MB it shares hold it back..they should go for 1024MB atleast for a new consol who suposed to last 5 years or so eh :thumbdwn:

But you all probably know that the game will ship for the Pc to and it will looks much better for it to :D

I have to be honest here, your an idiot. Consoles are suppose to be affordable and adding another 512mb RAM to the 360 would raise the price exponentially. The 360 is not a PC so don't be dumb and act like 512mb of RAM is not enough. If the original Xbox can do what it does with only 64mb of shared RAM then 512mb is more than enough for the 360. Besides, your basing the 360's ability to do textures on one LAUNCH game. :rolleyes:

I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't look better on PC.

That's it guys, I have decided to skip the PS3 for now, and get myself an X360 (By second it will be annonced as moddable). Anyway, is it officially out? Can the wide public can get it already? Where can I follow the launch schedule?

Thx.

Good choice... Maybe pick up PS3 when there are 10-20 games you want on it.

XBOX 360 will be available on 11/22/05 - at midnight at some stores like Walmart and early in the morning at others like Best Buy, Target, CompUSA, Fry's, Costco, Sam's Club, etc... You need to get there really early to get a chance of getting one!

Here are some links and ideas to get you started. Some consoles should pop in stock on these links around 11/22.

11/22 WALK-INs
--
Walmart - Midnight launch most stores
Best Buy - Midnight launch at select stores, 9AM morning of 11/22 at most stores.
Kmart/Sears - Some stores have X360s, low traffic
COMPUSA - Getting in X360s, also low traffic
Department stores - check to see when they are getting them in
Toys R Us, Target, Circuit City - find ones off the beaten path
CostCo/Sams Club - If you belong to either, this is a better chance of getting one since it costs money to be in the club to buy something

I would also of bought it you dumbass. When it comes to new consoles money is no object to me. You gotta remember though, Microsoft is not making their money off of the hardcore gaming crowd. Its the "casual" mainstream gamers that interest them the most. Even now, most of these "casual" gamers are having a hard time justifing the price of the 360. Let alone trying to justify the $100-200 price increase adding another 512mb of RAM to the 360 would cause.

Yes its probably true couse adding 100 more and they will sell much less!
Well they could just have added less but this time they will not sell it cheap and lose money as they did with the first!..ahh its only a console but it feels a little sad :(
