  1. Major-the title card for the watchmen is up on xbox live arcade,but when you select it,it only gives you the choice to download the video…and it takes that long for it to appear(the options),and when i press the guide button it always gets stuck and freezes now..can we go back to blades,there was no problems then!!

    is anything being done to fix these problems?

  2. Just tried it, very awkward way to end the demo [it just ends with no cutscene…just fade back to the main menu] – but overall very impressed. Im not sold on the MP, most FPS have canned MP but I’m sold on the single player especially if this is not just a remake/redo of the Xbox 1 game.

  3. I saw an ad that said the game DID include “Escape from Butcher Bay”…now what you might have to do to access it, or if it only comes with a certain number of copies is another issue!

  4. Yep, the game starts with Escape from Butchers Bay and leads in to the Athena content after thats been done. Or at least that how im to understand it… its not like its two stories… its a flowing story.

  5. It’s just like the old xbox version. Plays well. Graphics aren’t exactly the best and there were some slight frame rate issues. Hopefully the final build will be improved.

  6. Loved the demo, can’t wait for the final game. Escape from Butcher Bay and Dark Athena are seperate games on the disc, meaning you don’t have to play Escape first then Dark Atena, but yes it is a flowing story from one to the other. I wanna know what the achievements are.

  7. I tried it out, and found it to be not fun. Maybe I’m burned out on the FPS dungeon shooters. I mean, Bioshock had way more interesting mechanics. Anyway, it felt kind of previous generationally to me.
