Army of Two The 40th Day Full Game Follow Up

As mentioned before, I was unable to play the demo online at all. After purchasing the full game, I tried playing it with the same friend again online. After installing the 1.10 patch, we managed to get into the game no problem. There was a lot of lag though, even though both of us have great connections (fiber optic and ADSL2+ respectively). Still, these are EA servers and it comes as no surprise, but the lag is much worse than it was in the original Army of Two. It was bearable anyway. Note the "was".

Next game session a few days later. Had to install the 1.20 patch and was hopeful it would improve the online play. To my utter disbelief, the patch has caused the same problem as the demo and we are now unable to play online. I will try again soon, but it doesn't look good. The only reason we bought the game, was to play it co-op online. I will be sure to update again.

New Weekly Special - Red Faction: Guerrilla

Since the Weekly Special Bourne Conspiracy is already sold out (in two days only, talk about being popular!) Play-Asia has found a replacement for it, Red Faction: Guerrilla.

From the publisher: Set 50 years after the climactic events of the original Red Faction, Red Faction®: Guerrilla™ allows players to take the role of an insurgent fighter with the newly re-established Red Faction movement as they battle for liberation from the oppressive Earth Defense Force.

Red Faction: Guerrilla re-defines the limits of destruction-based game-play with a huge open-world, fast-paced guerrilla-style combat, and true physics-based destruction.

So, head off and get involved in some action. And while you are there, browse around, we have new toys and games coming in every day. The Roaring Lucky Lunar New Year Sale, too, is in full swing, head on to see the highlighted products or skip right on to the bargain section for the full lists.
