Mercenaries Demo
Posted on Tuesday, September 30 2008 @ 18:49:02 Eastern

It was pretty fun.  Demos are a neat little addition to this generation of consoles aren't they? 

Reminds me of the days when I'd go to my Dad's work to use the superfast connection to download something like the Duke Nukem 3D demo and then bring it home on like 10 diskettes.  I was so little I didn't even understand what the strippers were, or that it was taking place in a porn theatre.  I pretty much just shot everything with the shotgun. 

The old days of demos were awesome because the demos were generally a ridiculously large portion of the game and at least for me at least the idea of downloading stuff from the internet was new.  Demos today are awesome because they're free and there's so little effort involved in getting them.  After playing the demo and reading the reviews for The Force Unleashed and Mercenaries, I feel like I got the jist of the experience ("mmehh") without actually having to go outside to a store and buying them, which is nice I suppose.  Cost-effective at the very least.
