Area 51 : Blacksite demo is up on Xbox Live.

So far, getting shiny reports and looks to be a decent game, crept up out of nowhere.

damit, need to get back on Xlive.... freaking lack of wireless

Wonder if my PS3 could bridge the internet over to the X360...

my mate is using my 360, can he just plug a generic pc usb wireless in and it works?

I played through it, incredibly short

Overall though, it looks pretty nice. There were a few dips in framerates, but remembering it's a demo, I was sufficiently impressed for a game I've never heard much buzz about. According to the game description at the end it uses Unreal 3 tech, so I'll definatly check out the full game when it comes out

Damn! I'm out of town visiting my parents for Mother's Day. Oh well it'll have to wait until I get back on Monday. :)

Wow, other than a few hitches here and there like someone mentioned earlier, the game is actually really sweet! The controls feel fast and responsive along with a good scheme in general. (like halo 2's) The effects were pretty damn good and I loved when that first alien starting shooting through the gas station's front glass. Rock was being blown off the front pillars, glass was flying, rain was trickling down outside along with explosions going on in the background - it was down right impressive!

All in all, just check it out!

Short but sweet. This game now has my interest as it was not on my radar at all before.

demo was awesome, it was just to short though.

Whats with the horrible lagg? That really sucked cant belive they would release such a badly optimized demo, still fun though but lagg on a 360 is out of the question.

You guys weren't kidding when you said this game was short. It lasted all of 6 minutes!

05-12-07, 11:20 AM
lag? O_o

Oh right, I guess you mean the framerate... yeah it's awful. Nice graphics, atmosphere and animation though. The aliens are pretty sweet too, gonna have to keep my eye on this game :)

Hopefully they improve the frame rate but otherwise seems like a decent run of the mill FPS , it'l be a lot more impressive on a powerful PC.

Online coop - that's a big plus for me.

If they fix the framerate issues this could be a really good shooter. Cool atmoshere, nice graphics and effects, and plenty of action. Will be keeping an eye on this one.:)
