Just to clarify some rules for everyone:

1) The organizers are asking no cameras. They don't want pictures or video yet.

2) The organizers intended this tour for students of the university. I have been told that they will be checking student IDs.

I'm not ignorant enough to assume that you won't sneak in and/or take video - I just felt that I should point out the official rules.

(Go OSU on 4/14!)

Hey, I could go play Ninja Gaiden II today if I want. Neat.

I apologize, it was meant as a joke, so I edited it. Florida and Illinois are not white trash states, it was a joke.
:| Way to back hand Indiana again, ass! :p

It's all good, I took it as a joke and reacted with my joke angry response of "go to hell".

Thank God I keep all my old college IDs on me. ;)

Where did you end up finding details as to the exact time and place? I don't want to miss it when it's on my campus.
I found info at the school rec center by chance. Can't really help you out sorry.

Heh heh - well, so much for video...

Remember everything well then!

NG2 has got to be, alongside Fable 2, my most anticipated game this year. The original NG just clicked with me, despite the arkward camera system and difficulty, I love the game.

Just got back. Let me say this first: WOW. Impressions coming, it will take a while to write it all up. Probably will start a new thread. I was one of the only 4 people who played it, I completed the whole first chapter and maybe half of the second. I'm not even sure this was just a demo, it might have been the full game. But yeah, impressions, coming, from one of the first non-video game press to play it.

Itagaki, I bow to your greatness.

Love you.

And oh yeah, Xbox.com described it as the beta version, so it's probably complete content-wise, only missing the fine-tuning and polishing...

Tied with Gears 2, this is my most anticipated game by far for 2008 - I'm going to bed, and I hope to see some awesome impressions when I wake up...

Don't skimp on the details and expect to answer questions!

Only 4 people showed up, or only 4 were allowed to play?
The former. Anyone could have played, but not many seemed interested. The event wasn't very well advertised at all, but was held at the lobby of the rec center, so plenty of people got to see the game and could have played if they chose to.

This is taking me quite some time to write, but I should be finished in the next twenty minutish or so.
Okay I'm a liar, this is taking all eternity. I'll focus on gameplay stuff, and and in other parts later.

Don't want to have a thousand NGII topics on the front page, but the University of Missouri event is supposed to be today. Any UM people going to it?

Funny, I was just about the bump the thread before hitting the sack...

Well shit, they canceled the tour, didn't they?
Yup. I went to Bloomington to see this shit (they were going to charge 15 bucks for some event, but I don't know if I was going to take that lying down) and turns out, it was canceled. Turns out somebody leaked shit to the internet, so MS killed it. Thanks Georgia Tech!

Well, damn.

I was wondering why there were no impressions from the weekend dates...

So much for that then I guess...

Wow. Way to fuck it up and ruin it for everyone.
 
So... why college campuses?

Why not malls or major gaming retailer places?

This is definitely going to put flames on the violent video game ordeal...

Edit: Nm, they cancelled it? what's going on?
