    Release date: May 29th

    Kinda surprised we don't already have a thread for this game.

    Anyway, the game itself doesn't come out for a few more weeks, but the Global Testfire is happening today and tomorrow, at the following times (all Pacific):

    May 8th (today):
    8PM-9PM

    May 9th (tomorrow):
    4AM-5AM
    Noon-1PM

    (edit: new testfire announced! May 23rd, 3-4PM pacific (6-7PM eastern).

    Not sure if I'll be able to do either of the ones tomorrow, but I hope to be able to play today's, at least. I'm hella late to boarding the hype train, but yesterday's Direct convinced me.

    Anybody else gonna be participating in the Global Testfire?

    Well, I've got it downloaded. Whether or not I'll be able to get in during the inevitable 1 hour siege on the servers is the question though.

    Yeah, this is my main worry, since, unless I wake up early tomorrow, this will be the only shot I have at playing the game before it comes out.

    I really wish this was an actual demo, so I can play it for more than, at most, 3 hours. Just gimme a few single player missions, or something; don't tease me like this. Hell, even just more than 3 1 hour periods in a 24 hour timeframe would be fine!

    I think I've read that its just a server stress test dressed up as a demo, but yeah...maybe they'll do it again next weekend?

    ...That makes sense, actually, since it's multiplayer only (and only during limited times).

    It'd be nice if they did it again next weekend and/or the weekend after.

    It is a stress test. That is why it is called a Testfire.

    See, I just took that as "testing out how a gun works".

    The music does not fit that commercial at all, IMO. :p

    "Unable to connect because the server has reached its connection limit and cannot accept any more connections at this time."

    What a great way to start this off...

    Yay, ninja'd.
