Impressive!  I like how they have Dale Dye consulting on the gameplay features.

I'm personally hoping it comes out on PC. TFU is but not for another 3 months after the initial launch
I think I'll get that on my xbox.

It's multiplayer enabled. I hope that means XBOX LIVE. If so then I'll get this game. If not then I'll wait 6 months and pick it up for $30 or less.

The terrain deformation is pretty cool except it makes the ground look like your running on jell-o. It also looks like if I throw a bomb I get a hill created in front of me. Why is it always a hill? Isn't there any kind of underlining geologic structure where if I throw a bomb, it will make the area that I'm standing on cave in? That would make it risky to throw a bomb it the ground might colapse below your feet and you fall five hundred feet into a cavern.

Check the video again. There are vortex sinkholes, as well it looks like in the video you can make a hill with one type of "grenade" then with another make it collapse on itself. Also there is another one that makes the ground come up in a big column.

So I'd have to yes, there are other type of weapons that terraform in different ways, other than a hill.

So these are not regular weapons. There is no chance that throwing on one these grenades will possibly kill you by doing something you weren't expecting? It seems like it would be more fun if there was somekind of risk here. For example, I need to make a hill to hide behind. I throw a hill building grenade. It creates the hill but it took the dirt from the place I'm standing to make the hill.

They don't necessarily show that of the payer, but it does affect AIs as well as buildings and equipment. I'd imagine if you throw a grenade at your feet you'll get messed up.

I think I'll wait for the reviews to come out to decide when I'm going to buy this. I'm not much for buying games on first day of release (with a scant few exceptions). For the most part, I'm happy with waiting a few months and getting them for half price or less.

It is Multiplayer enabled. I read a review on IGN when some of the guys got to play the deathmatches. They said that the grenades get way over the top early in the game if your a new player. After they played a few they started using them for strategy. They also said the smaller maps need less grenades because you destroy the map in 1 minute if there's too many. There is a totally open field map that is straight across just a couple of trees and rocks. This is the map they said that really brought the grenades to life allowing them to make the map how they wanted.

New Site is up! Got some really cool features

Fracture

Still No PC Announcement. I'm getting tired of companies traditionally being a PC developer, not releasing on PC. One of LA's staff said that they new that most People who play PC games play MMO's and RTS or TBS. BUT the guys out there that shell out 900 or more on a custom built(IE they build it at home) PC Can handle games like Crysis that the Xbox and PS3 can't even handle.

TFU is rumored to be coming for PC and I sure hope fracture does too
