Default COD4 and UT3 Demos available!!

Yep, grab the single player demo for Call of Duty 4 here!

Also, grab the Unreal Tournament 3 Beta Demo here! Offline against bots, or online against TOGgers!!


COD4 is great! Looks like it'll be the one to beat this (and maybe) next year! VERY good.

UT3 I'm downloading now, so haven't tried, but I'll bet it'll be every bit as good as what's been there in the past, and then some!

Finally, some good new FPS titles!!

Sigh. Ut 3 demo installed, it shows loading sceen, but then it disappears and process stops. Trying different gfx drivers sets now, but no luck.

I just wanna frag.

Well, its working on the new comp of the wife's, how ever it doesn't seem to save video settings. Dunno what all the stuff does in the .ini's. Stuff used to be so simple.

It feels more like UT weaponry, 1 as opposed to '03 and 04's, which was a bit more out landish. Really wondering if I shouldn't pick up a physix gpu for this huckleberry.

I just finished the UT3 demo, and I enjoyed it, but it shows it's time to start building a new PC, while I had no "major" issues, I was getting some graphics lag.

Don't buy the physics gpu its a waste of money.
You can enable hardware physics with no fps loss,If you have a multiple core processor and a good vidcard.
Thats the beauty of dual and quad core you already HAVE an physics processor,because physics gets assigned a dedicated core.

Lovin the UT3 demo. I forgot how fun it was to blow stuff/peope up! I hope the maps for vctf are a big bigger. The one that's currently in the demo is entirely too small for all the vehicles. COD4 was decent and the graphics were great but the demo is entirely too short for me to give an honest opinion about it. I really enjoyed COD2 so I'm pretty sure I'll play the release.

Very true mate. I still think BF2 looks awesome, and possibly even better than what I've seen in COD4... but it's only a night map, and I've got it on medium settings, where BF2 is maxed.

As for COD4 being the future of online gaming for me... I'll wait for the Multi Player elements to be released. I'll grab the game I'm sure, but what works as a single player game isn't necessarily a winner as multi... however, I think they've got the right idea, and the right team to make it be all it can be.

UT3 is just insanely fast and furious!! Lots of fun!! Haven't tried the online bit yet, but it is just pure, frantic fun. Good to see!!

Just played both this afternoon. Loved the CoD4 demo. Graphically fantastic, but importantly the gameplay was there as well. I'll definitely put a few bucks aside for this one.

UT3 ... meh ... I thought the textures and models looked awful. Nice water effects but underwater is terrible. It just blurs everything rather than trying to simulate being under water. I've never been a fan of UT and this latest installment certainly won't be changing my mind.
