    Anyone else can't wait for this game? I'm counting the days, I loved bf1942 and desert combat so I'm really looking forward to it.

    Unfortunately the game has pretty insane requirements:
    Apparently geforce 4s don't cut it anymore, you need something better. Even with my new setup I wont be able to play highest settings :(

    I'm thinking about building a new PC and getting a G4 TiBook, but I have to stop paying $500 a month for car insurance first (and get a roommate). by the time that happens, I'll need to buy the new next-gen consoles and get a G6 DiBook. *sigh*

    Demo came out today.

    Good luck finding a place from which to download it. I'm on a private torrent and even that's pretty slow.

    Derka derka derka, Allah muhammed jihad!

    The squad play makes it fun. You have a commander who can call in artillery strikes, supply drops, reconnasance etc.. He's voted into power. Then you have about four squads on each team for a 32 player server. Each squad has a squad leader and squad members, the squad leader sets objectives and tells the squad what to do, ie: attack outpost, defend outpost. He acts as a mobile spawn point as well.

    If you don't like squad based play you don't have to use it either.

    Anyways, it's fun.

    I got a G36 for you, you silly terrorist, with personalized bullets. This game is indeed fun like BF1942 was when it first came out, so I have high hopes.

    That would actually be pretty cool except the alien team only really has melee attacks and that sucks in online fps games because of lag issues.

    Jets are fun but the maps are all infantry based close combat so it's hard to do anything when you're zooming around across the map in two seconds.

    I think I saw that in a japanese movie once but with people instead of bugs and eels instead of goop.

    Sea cucumbers launch their entrails out of their butt in a last ditch escape mechanism. It's kind of gross.
