Section 8
Section 8 Updated to 1250

If you're anything like me, you're laughing right now at all those suckers who bought Modern Warfare 2 or Left 4 D... ah, who the hell am I kidding, this is no time for jokes. Section 8 is by no means a great game, getting a failing grade from the whole of the gaming community. Yet SouthPeak is determined to support whatever community is left, hinting at more DLC coming before the Holiday season is over in a financial report a few weeks ago by company CEO Melanie Mroz:

“Because of the unique online multiplayer gameplay, we anticipate that with additional downloadable content that will be available shortly... we can extend the life of the product well through the holiday season”

Today ten new achievements for an extra 250 gamerscore have been added to both the 360 and PC versions of the game, showing at least three new maps and a few game mode variants. The coming content was never officially confirmed by the company, so no price or release date is available, but this is as good as confirmed can be. If you're still a Section 8 fan, stay tuned for more info as it comes.

@8, A halo knockoff? I wanna know what Halo you've been playing. Because if there was a Halo where i could modify my kit and drop in from the sky and uses mechs, i wouldn't of waited 6 months to buy it!

I avoided this game because of the sheer number of multiplayer achievements. It just takes the fun out of the game for me when you are required to play in a certain way with a group (basically boosting, rather than just enjoying the game).

#8 I've played halo before and besides the bright multiplayer I can't find much resemblance.
#12 I totally agree. A multiplayer game making you play multiplayer for shame. I hate it when developers of games make you try and play the main feature of a game.

This is a fun game and maybe if this dlc becomes a deal of the week I'll get it.

I fucking loved section 8 but there was never any games going. Shame really. Maybe try again with this rather difficult dlc list... 5 overdrive kills in a round? Ouch!

I'm glad I waited playing this game, does this mean that they fixed the glitches that some players experienced?

Section 8 has an acquired taste to it. I think was pretty good. Not spectacular, just good.

From reading these comments i get the conclusion fps=halo knockoff.... I was unaware of this and can't believe i have bought 3 halo knockoffs whon i could be playing halo...
Other then that the game was ok, i just wis it was more 50/50 online and off not just online. the story line was there and it took me 2 months to ry and finish.

I liked this demo, but I knew the online community wouldn't be very big so I never got it. Still doesn't make it a bad game though. And to everyone saying it's a halo knockoff, you're an idiot.
