The Hawks are sensational to fly about in. Amazing sound design, too.

If only there were more people here playing, we could make a clan!

I have it, love it but really disappointed in how few people seem to be playing.

One thing I noticed is my game says "Starhawk (UK)" on the launch screen. Does this mean there's local servers/ matching? I've yet to hear another UK voice in any of the games I've managed to get.

Man I love how this game looks. Even something as simple as a hoverjet flying past is epic as hell.

I don't think so. Mine says Starhawk(UK) and was filled with American voices when I played yesterday.

A nice review from EDGE. http://www.edge-onli...starhawk-review
Hopefully will inspire some more of you to pick it up.

I actually think it's kind of a shame this is stuck on PS3, it'd be a huge hit on 360 and PC I reckon.

Yes but at least Sony still realise the importance of exclusives. They've built such a great roster of late. I do think they could have done better to promote Starhawk, though.

I imagine this might build itself a community over time but I'm not quite in yet. I went to Game today to pick it up and it was 43! I couldn't bring myself to buy it at that price. I may change my mind by tomorrow.

edit: it has to be from Game as I have no real money at present so it's Game credit or nothing.

I paid 43 on Amazon from a seller when it was out of stock at Amazon. But I had Amazon credit so it didn't feel like real money! Plus it came the next day. Hate to say it but I suspect the price will drop to around 20 in just a few weeks...

A really good article on the clever tech powering Starhawk.

You are wearing us down epcotman.:) I'm impressed by how the game looks but I have also been reminded now these games are full of sweary Americans.

Ha! I'm just desperate to talk about it with people! It doesn't even bother me that I get destroyed most of time in Starhawk. I normally have at least one stand out moment of success in each game. Like defending one base, destroying tanks with the drop pod or running over the entire opposition in a Razorback! I even like it when the chips are down, the enemy controls every base but one, and you all just pull together and hang on for as long as possible. Zones is by far my favourite game type.

Feel free to add me for some games if anybody wants.

When I do get this, next few weeks honest, then I'll be sure to add you. My daughter and I will probably head on as a team of two to try and help each other survive, well she'll help me.

I played split screen co op last night, for the first time with my girlfriend (who took much persuading to participate) and it's really, really fun. Technically, it runs silky smooth in split screen and coming up with a plan together is wholly satisfying.

I'd certainly be interesting in picking this up but once it's inevitably slashed in price.

Nah, just jump in now! All the map packs are going to be free, so you can support the developer now, by buying the game! You won't regret it. :omg:

I am surviving much longer since getting the mechanic skill. It repairs your ship automatically.

I just did a 12 mile round trip to Tesco to pick it up after reading that. Not in stock. Not even any listed as ever having been in stock.

Hold the fort Epcot, be terrorising the spaceways with you soon!

Haha excellent! Stupid Tesco! Honestly, the more I play this (18 hours so far!!), the more I think it's becoming my favourite multiplayer ever. It does take AGES to learn everything and become good at it, but when it clicks it's totally brilliant.

I'm starting to dominate the odd game now, and it's bliss! The RLLMUK clan marches on and we now have a random, fairly friendly German recruit!

I can only imagine the power we'll exude once you join us, Wombling!

I'll get this tomorrow given you're gushing so about it (and Ghost Recon looks a bit meh). Then there'll be 4!

I've had this since last week but been busy with Max Payne 3 so not had a chance to get on yet!

I'll join the 'muk clan this weekend too!!

Yay but balls! :facepalm:

Oh well, it's kind of vital to play through a bit of single player, anyway, as it will show you most of the ropes! I've sent you your clan invite, Boxoctosis!
