it kinda cool that there's a town to explore. OOPS i think i just blew my cover
(1st lvl was fun. but i don't expect much from this game. deleted)

IMO, definitly wait for a demo, or rent it (console owners), before you shell out the $50+.

This is before the Veil level. An example is in the midtown West level where you meet the guy who takes you to the 'safe' house. If you go into the courtyard with the statue in the middle, one corner has the effect I am talking about. Might be something smoldering but doesn't look right.

This appears in other places in the level.

thanks, although I primarily use it for encoding, I still enjoy a great First person shooter from time to time.

so maybe, in the future steam may very well host Wolfenstien as well.

in any case. i've been reading a few reviews, and checking out some gameplay vids. this game looks pretty good. aside from the bugs, it's said to have, and semi-linear gameplay. i just really like fps (<- fraggy face )
When first going for FEAR and later that game's expansion you simply saw a direct install. for the FEAR2 released earlier this year you have to setup a Steam account. That's like opening the doors for adwares and spies!


Sorry! But I prefer games that install to the drive or even run from the disk but require a special online account. Then if you have to reinstall Windows for some reason and connect support when you can't log in they change the password to something else and send an email with something entirely different there for login info!

I have a few Steam disks here I would like hand them back. Upgrading Windows? Buy a new disk each time!

In the usual game play you can't capture anything to take screens from. When recording the counter is stuck. That's what I meant about setting up camcorder. Different games will see the option to take screenshots by having a key assigned for that option. Unfortunately Wolfenstein and the previous RTCW lack there.

Another oldie Soldier of Fortune Platinum=no, SoF II=yes you can, and the more recent sequel SoF3 Payback=no there for grabbing screens. Once I finish Wolfenstein I can let you know which one has the hardest difficulty level.

I went through the first map in Wolf with ease there. But I'll be going through soon enough.

@ Night Hawk

i've never had a problem with steam. i actually like the idea, that i'll never have to replace a disc, when i buy a game from them. i mean downloading fear2 (holy crap 12gigs) can be a pain, but in the long run, my 50 dollar investment is always a click away, so i tend to favor steam over retail, boxed games. (unless of course they're not available on steam ) and Im curious as to what you mean about "spies" and such. i've used their services for the past 4 years, making multiple online purchases, and never had any id theft issues of any sort. to each his own, i guess.

back to the subject. what would you folks, who've played Wolfenstien, rate it overall?
on a scale of 1 to 10.
i, only test ran it for a little while, so i dont really have an opinion of the game.

Here is interesting article About Wolfenstein:

One Hour With: Wolfenstein

Killing Nazis, old school style


There are certainly a lot of shooters out there, many of them having appeared with the advent of 3D graphics and current- or last-generation consoles, which allowed them to portray events that were easy to imagine by players.

But one franchise that draws its roots in the DOS era is Wolfenstein, which is currently handled by id Software, the famous shooter developer. The company has kept its series dormant for quite some time, but it has now released the new and improved Wolfenstein on current-generation platforms, including the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Even though it isn't a straightforward next-generation release, as it is based on a heavily modified version of the id Tech 4 engine, the game promises to bring back Nazi killing and spice it up with occult elements and the same fast-paced action that made all of its predecessors extremely popular. I recently had the chance to spend some time with the game so here is my one hour with Wolfenstein:

13:00 Finally I get the chance to play this title, which effectively starts the season of blockbuster releases. It's been a dry summer in terms of games, so any new and interesting one is great, no matter what.

13:07 The first few cut scenes show just what you need to know. You once again reprise the role of special agent B.J. Blazkowicz, the premiere weapon of the United States against Nazi and any other major threat during World War II. He is sent to prevent Nazi Germany's occult department from getting their hands on some special weapons in a small town located in the country. Luckily the resistance there is strong and will help you in your endeavors.

13:15 You immediately get on a train to reach the town, but don't think that leisure and comfort will await you, as somebody tipped off the Germans and they aren't happy with foreign visitors. Immediately you get a gun and start gunning down the enemy soldiers alongside various members of the resistance.

13:21 Before you make your escape from the train station you must plant a bomb on a special train that carries top secret cargo for the army. Lo and behold when the bomb goes off that you detonated some sort of special energy, which is now tearing up the station and making you float from time to time.

13:27 Amidst the chaos and floating Nazis you make it out alive and are immediately greeted by another member of the resistance who introduces you to some Black Market merchants who act as weapons and ammo suppliers throughout the game. They can also upgrade your weapons depending on how much money you find throughout the various levels.

13:36 After a leisurely stroll through the town, coupled with a bit of Nazi soldier dodging, I arrive at one of the headquarters of the Resistance. There I am briefed in regard to an important digsite located a small distance from the town, where General Zetta will be making an appearance. Even though it seems to be suicide, BJ has no fear, so it's off to the mines.

13:43 It is here that I meet a young Russian boy who has been brought here by the Nazis to decipher some magical ruins. He says that I must hurry and prevent the General and his acolytes from getting their hands on the big amount of energy located in the underground. More Nazis to kill for me!

13:51 After shortly dispatching the groups of soldiers, I get my hands on a special amulet that, according to the young Russian, allows me to enter a new dimension and see things differently. I have to admit that using it definitely adds a new type of feel to the game and might be the tipping point for many gamers as to whether or not they'll keep playing.

14:00 My one hour is up, and, as far as I believe, Wolfestein is making a pretty good impression. It isn't groundbreaking in terms of graphics, but what it does, it does well. Also the amulet adds a few interesting mechanics to what would have been a bland shooter.

Overall, Wolfenstein is keeping its promises. Look forward to the full review next week.
