Sony Megathread

The lag can be annoying, but I dont find it to be bad at all when playing someone in the UK on Pro Evo. The playing as super teams can be annoying, thats why I tend to stick to people I know wont just pick Barca or Brazil.

Anyone else with Warhawk download the recent Omega Dawn booster thing?

For the $9 something it came to I'm rather unimpressed.

I both like and dislike the dropship. Only fiddled with it in a local game to see what it can do and how much it can take. It seems balanced but the issue is people have no seeming clue how to use it. It's either a floating death coffin or well, that's about it. People fly in, the main dropship flyer can effectively annihilate anything they go for, but it's a big floating target that can actually go down pretty easy. I've never been in one in an actual game, but just seeing what's happened with the few I've seen, it's a good idea but in the confines of the game and way people play it's not very effective.

My actual only problem with it is the fact that it can carry a jeep (or tank) with the flag carrier in it in CTF games. I single handedly recaptured all of the spawn points on Omega Dawn and as I was closing in on going for their flag I inexplicably look like and see our own flag being flown across the damn map, dropped and scored before I could even do anything, same with the rest of my team... thus began rather boring back and forth trading of flags in various games.

That all said, Omega Dawn is also too big, and doesn't have the same design aesthetic as the other maps that came with the game. It would be perfect with more people able to play but with a 32 player limit it's just too big and combat seems pretty infrequent as compared to the other maps. Also the patch increasing spawn time on official servers to 5 secs compared to 3 has really increased that, and diminished my enjoyment of the old maps.

All in all, decent for what it is but kind of pricey for its lack lustre quality.

Bit cheaper in the UK I think. Downloaded it, not played Warhawk since (cos of COD4) but will be playing it again soon cos my mate just traded in his 360 for a preowned 60gig PS3 and got Warhawk....So to war we go.

Can anyone confirm the europeans not being able to play against americans thing? If its so then I'll change the original post to a list of Europeans and a list of Americans/Canadians.

I'm pretty certain I played Fifa 08 against some dude in England. I picked a pretty average team (can't remember who) guessing he'd pick someone similar. He picked Arsenal or Real Madrid and proceeded to kick my ass. Eh.

Accents I've recognised in Call Of Duty online play include English, Scottish, French, Australian, American and somewhere in the middle east (for added realism).

Maybe they all lived in the UK but I'm guessing you CAN play people around the world.

In Warhawk I've played against Americans too.

I noticed that. I added 'Slydogg' before but your name actually has some numbers after it that aren't in your original post or in the list.

On the first post could you edit people's online games so it's easy to pick out a possible match?

If that's cool then I have and play online: Warhawk, Call Of Duty 4, Guitar Hero, Pro Evo '08 (as long as you all pick a normal team and not one of the boring top ones), Eye Of Judgment (but only for the Eyetoy so my deck is useless and I don't care about it that much)

Everyone picking 2 games they want in the original post would probably be better. Just to avoid it getting too cluttered.

If people want to know about full game lists they'll have to read through the thread (which to be fair isn't that long) or talk to people individually.

I bought Resistance today off a customer for a fiver. Of course that transaction had to take place outside of the store :P

I also bought a DS Lite off another for £50 a few days ago. Bargainous - I love it when the store offers such low prices :P

They came in to trade the game in and he probably offered them a couple bucks more (or the English equivalent) that he'd get for the trade-in.

So, you should just stand outside of your local GameStop like Jay and Silent Bob, asking about what games they are trading in and selling drugs on the side.
