Considering the fact that new iterations of established sports series hardly every innovate at all and are simply content with updating rosters, I don't really see the point. This year they improved the normal mapping and specular mapping on the football! Wow! /yawn
If I could have gotten past the combat mechanics which I loathed I'm pretty sure I would have enjoyed the game a lot. The atmosphere and story seemed like they would have interested me, unfortunately other aspects spoiled the game. Here's to hoping the sequel remedies those.
@FunExplosions: Hmm, maybe I'm just screwed then because the lag I'm getting at the moment is pretty consistent. Resetting my router didn't do anything. Anywho, don't worry about it it's no biggy. I'll let things take their course and hopefully everything will right itself. In the mean time I'll surrender myself to M&B: Warband some more.
@FunExplosions: Well, to be more specific I meant that there was that long of a delay between me sending a message in chat and it showing up. I just logged on to check again and now it took 68 seconds for my message to show up. 68 MISSISSIPPI SECONDS! :O I want to build stuff and hang with you guys but I suspect no one really wants to deal with that kind of latency. Poor 'Splosions :(
