Does anyone know if the retail copy activates via steam? I want to get this game, however I prefer having a physical box(for display reasons), but still prefer having it on steam.

I'm not sure at all to be honest Chilly.. I just got mine right off Steam...

I'm playing a soldier and a hunter, look for "encorp" if anyone wishes - I'll be around lots.

Not sure if I want to get this on PC or 360. I heard the PC had a few glitches, like the multiplayer having a lot of problems. I'd rather play it on PC if there's no problems though.

Multiplayer was effortless for me. Just made a GameSpy account (ewww) and opened some ports that my friend handed me from the readme I think. Seamless 4 player co-op for myself.

But anyways, just raped some massive double barreled shotgun guy after spending a couple thousand getting respawned. Hunter is definitely not the ideal 1 on 1 character.

Well, after decrypting and playing for a few hours, I can honestly say I'm pretty hooked. I agree with lpfan4ever though, Sniper (aka Mordechi) is probably not the best character to start off with. I'm at about level 14 after playing for a few hours, and here are some of my thought on it so far:

Pros:
- Smooth as hell!
- Awsome visual style
- Simple to pick up and play, save for a few unusual default key binds (Melee is "V" wth? lol)
- Loving the random weapons, but so far my best weapon was one given to me by a direct storyline NPC, and not be a random drop. Oh well.

Cons:
- Holy the difficulty scales up Quick! I mean, within the first hour or so I got to the first boss (seen in the trailers) and suddenly found out how the respawning works. I won't even get started on some of the bosses after that... but I'll just say this: Kept a good amount of cash on hand for respawning reasons (it costs more the higher your level).

I'll post more impressions and maybe some screenshots later on.

Yeah, once you his 12-13 shit goes up a notch big time in the "instances".

I decided to actually grind a little an extra 1-2 levels to make it easier and pile up some $$$.

I really like this game so far.

Haha... Im an FPS gamer, i dont know what this "grinding" is that you speak of. But I do know that when I face a big angry boss (like the one guarding the mine key) you'll wish you were a few levels higher or had some friends to help you. Took my a looooong time to figure out to how beat that guy, but I did.

Having played the xbox360 version until lvl 17 or 18, I kinda had a clue of what to expect so I took the time to get a little edge to make things easier.

Combat Rifles and Grenades FTW.
