Just got the Beta at i37, not as good as last years they have downsized alot, none of the big companies have turned up and all the stalls are tiny.

Anyway back to Section 8, it is shaping up to be a game to watch, kinda of a mix of Battlefield meets Halo's Spartan look and Tribes. You can deploy new buildings and a small mech and tank to protect CP's and after you get all the CP's a bonus mission comes in like escort a VIP or stop a bomb from goin off.

One of the best things is the spawing you drop from around 2K feet and rocket towards the earth then you put your 'brakes' on and land but the CP's that are not under your control have AA fire so you have to land outside the cover area.

Really enjoyable and each class is customisable so you can have a sniper who has a rocket launcher.

Anyone else thinking that it looks like a new version of Planetside? If that's the case then I can't wait - had so much fun on PS

The only problem with this game is Southpeak games are making it and they are known for complete stinkers.

Looks great but so have all their other games that came before it.. Two Worlds etc.

Was being the operative word. I still eat kebabs though.







And I still love you.

Except that it's only for 32 players. I was also hoping it was a new version of PS as well. Some of the most fun I've had on a Computer game.

Its not as good as i34 (last one i went to), the exhibition area is half the size and none of the big companies turned up. At i34 EA showed off Mirrors Edge and mercs 2 as well as Ubisoft showing off Endwar and OpFlash 2.

Am knackered now though it finishes tomorrow and its back to work tuesday, its guna be a long week.

Just about to take part in a lil tournament Multiplay have put together, should be interesting.
