    Sounds quite interesting

    "Realism in the shooting, if not the plot, is the key to Sniper Ghost Warrior. The ballistic system accounts for distance, fall-off in the bullet trajectory, wind direction and so on, and you must manage the sniper's breathing while shooting. You have squad members to use as spotters, feeding back the positions of your targets. "

    So you camping fucks can hone your twattish skills in a single player game now too ;)

    Will this be any good? Probably not. But I quite enjoyed Sniper Elite on the xbox so if this has the same vibe then I'm game

    Recently reading a book on US Marine and Army snipers has taught me, among other things, that hitting stuff with a gun at long ranges is hard. fucking. work.

    Off the top of my head you need to take into consideration: distance, elevation relative to target, wind speed, target speed, temperature, air pressure, air humidity, the Coriolis effect, your position on the planet, ammo temperature, gun temperature, whether or not it is your first or 2nd shot of the day - and of course the ubiquitous peculiarities of the specific rifle. And your breathing and heartrate.

    Bad Company 2 should incorporate all of those variables, IMHO.

    Sniper One is a great read if you want to understand more about the life of a sniper.

    Mag should also learn from this, snipers can takes you out from the other side of the map.

    I remember watching the directors commentary for Shooter, he was saying the snipers eat Beef Jerky on assigments with no sugar or caffine allowed as their bloodflow needs to be steady cos it can throw the shot off.

    It's mental levels of discipline. Also a .50 cal bullet does not make a hole, it makes a Jackson Pollak out of your body :D

    It is probably something well hard in Eastern European (...), like "Wraznlizanavo Naz Rczavzh" - which then turns into the slightly less hard "Sniper Ghost Warrior" upon translation.

    Damn, I was expecting a new Dynasty Warriors game, with added firearms and some spirits.

    That actually sounds quite good, but the kind of quite good that might sound better on paper than it plays. I shall watch this one with cautious enthusiasm I think.

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    If it's anything like Sniper Elite this will be a day one purchase. Love that game.

    the Coriolis effect,

    Someone's Walter Mittying it here, the CE makes no appreciable difference at such ranges.

    I guess this is a sequel to Sniper: Art of Victory. Still, does seem to make good use of the Lithtech engine, and if it does come out on 360 as well as PC that may be a first for them.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Eh, looks crap.

    The dialog is awful, not very authentic if that's what they are aiming for, 2 snipers instead of one and a spotter?

    I didn't get to see what rifle the second bloke was equipped with but it's not unusual for the spotter to be eqipped with an assault rifle.

    It looked like another sniper, plus he was miles away and I thought spotters were on site with the sniper.

    I hate to look like a Military geek but don't sell a game on "authenticity" and then make it into 24 ;)

    New trailer, sets up and strikes for a headshot! That's all in-game? :)

    Demo is up for PC players, it's actually pretty good. Feels oddly console in some respects (stream lined controls, that console field of view) but very PC at the same time (tight controls, no guidance for actions like jumping over fences, climbing and old style health bar).

    Sneaking around is good, sniping is excellent and the missions seem fun enough. There was some crazy storyline going on which seemed to do the job of giving you a reason to sneak around and murder dudes.

    Nice...

    Could give some kind of new gameplay... I guess it will be a bit of a puzzle game on who to take out first where. A bit like Commandos.
