After the chat lats week I have picked it up, anyone fancy some games/ DIS tournament at some point,
Got it on the 360.
but i've just discovered that the xbox version doesn't support online team development ie you can play a game online but your points don't count towards the teams experience. which is bad. very, very bad.
my only hope is that people will be able to keep track of their points in game and then add them manually (something you had to do in the PC 'hotseat' version). if this is the case then it mitigates it somewhat, but it's still massively annoying.
my copy arrives on tuesday so i'll find out then...
did you know there are series of blood bowl novels? i imagine they're the first all caps novels in general circulation
had no idea someone had decided to *write* about the game though. roy of the rovers but with orcs?
as to the game, it has both the turn based version and the live-action-all-mayhem version, but i think only the turn based one is available online.
Had a go Yesterday against the computer. Managed to score a touchdown, then lost 4-1. :(
Not convinced so far. I heard that there's no online leagues. What the fuck is up with that.
Been sticking pretty much to the turn-based, great fun,
Makes me want to play the actual game more,
Also found out that there is no-one really on XBox live playing it
i reckon a lot of people will be getting used to the game before going online to embaress themselves! ill try and be online this weekend but ive got the battles gig on saturday so a lot of time is going to be spent drinking/recovering from drinking.
God I'm regressing to what I was doing a few years ago.
Great to drink along with a game.
