    alot of other forums are suspecting this is fake because gamewad (which no one has heard of before) is the only source

    lol, they're idiots because MAG isn't even released yet so they wouldn't know.
    44 more? no biggy. besides, I already think 256 is way too many, a higher number will just complicate things..

    Does anyone remember when Epic didn't rely on the same engine and made games that didn't feature guns?

    I want a new Jill of the Jungle. [​IMG]

    I dont think you will ever be able to play with exactly 256 or 300. But, anyways, GHB will be the new MAG-Killer. [​IMG]

    That was Epic!? [​IMG]


    It sounds like we're getting into another stupid race to see who can get more people in a multiplayer game.. oh boy [​IMG]'

    I saw the MAG demo on E3 and everything looked to be running smoothly, but those were the developers playing, how will the game handle 256 players from different parts of the world playing at the same time?

    I think I like matches with fewer players a lot better. It just feels more... I dunno, involved I guess? I don't really know how to describe it... with so many players, it's as if no one counts. When there's few players, you need to rely on each other and such.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    I agree War, with 300 people you suddenly become quite insignificant. Plus, they always seem to use binary numbers when it comes to number of players in multiplayer games, why? (Except this one of course, interestingly).
    Even so, I hope it's coming to PC so I can give it a go at least aha.

    What are you talking about? I want Jazz Jackrabbit.

    Wait, that actually had guns [​IMG]

    Anyway, I think this could be a MAG killer. The 360 is already the more popular console, and if any company can do this it's Epic.

    MAG will be definatly to complicated honestly try to lead 255 people this will never really work and the rest is nothing new. And anyway Battlefield is and will be much better
