Keeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewl!!! Looking fwd to this one. What was that URL again?
:-/

Missed ya this mornin - there was 5 of us in GW (though not in the same game
due to early limits on team sizes). We've all joined Xocyll's guild, mainly
for the guildchat feature - will send you an invite when we're both on.
Still hoping to see Andrew & Chainbreaker whenever they can make it. That
makes 8+ of us, which would be a bloody ripper to have in a full game at
higher levels! :)  Mean_Chlorine was there too, but he was doing higher level
stuff & was already in a guild.

I'll still need George's (Chris) & Saint's real email addresses to put them
on the list...might give them a ping in a separate thread in .rpg. Cheers!

Who's publishing it?

Last I heard, JoWood and Perception had gotten into a pissing contest
and parted ways. The Perception site (www.perception.com.au) says
it's still in development, but no mention of who's label it's going
out under.

I had to go out to a job so I didn't play GW until after 3pm, got out
again 5pm. I'm still dieing all over the place, but at least the
controls are tighter since I remapped the keys. still at L3 but getting
used to attacks now. skales still slaughter me :)

One of the most important things is don't pick your secondary right off,
cycle through and try them all first (one mission each usually) for exp
and temp powers.
With any class, having the extra attacks from a temporary secondary can
make a huge difference to survivability.
[Ok warrior can probably do without them, but everyone else benefits.]

I didn't do this the first time through (I didn't know) but have done it
with ever subsequent character and it makes things quite a bit easier.

The ranger especially feels weak until you find and do Aiden's quest
which nets you the dual shot and ignite arrows powers (which my ranger
is still using at level 20 and has used the entire time.)

Very strange - I could've *sworn* this was going to be an adventure hybrid.
As it stands, it's fps all the way. The only observation so far is it seems
to suffer from dwarfism (i.e. all the screenies make it look like the player
is looking up 2 feet from the ground)...hmmm...

he's moved on to L.A. Noire for the PS3

Actually, I was a bit harsh in my previous post - I'll reserve any judgments
until after release. The gameplay could be fabulous & the screenies look
nice (apart from aforementioned dwarfview ;) . I still think Atlantis
would've been a better setting, especially with the entire city as an
opening area - what a world to explore!

I wish they didn't use the characters from the tv show. It doesn't look
or sound right so it ruins immersion. Plus it will make the characters
sound stupider than on tv when they keep repeating the same phrases over
and over.

Yeah but, the bunch of ADD teenagers they're likely targeting the game
at wouldn't recognize it as Stargate unless the crew of SG1 were there
in front of them.

It would make far more sense to have you as part of another team, maybe
once in a blue moon running into SG1 somewhere (you supporting them or
them supporting you on some nasty mission.)

Kind of like how they did elite force with star trek - the main
characters are around, but not in all the missions.

there is a cartoon running around by a similar name, I thought I had it,
must have deleted it by mistake when drive swapping. the stargate
cartoon has an entirely different cast and aliens to the other 2 shows,
it looks like its set on an alpha site built by the norad base but left
to their own defences.

dunno how popular it was, but that would have set some familiarity
