H.A.W.X. 2 Demo Flies High Next Week

Yeah, we're getting a new Ace Combat but before that comes yet another immensely promising flight title.

It's Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 2 and if you're not yet convinced of a purchase, you can always try the single-player demo that will be available for the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live service; the Live demo will be ready on August 16 and the PSN demo will be up the following day. You'll be able to sample a couple missions: the first is Interception Course, which puts you in the cockpit of a Russian jet on a quest to intercept a group of stolen aircraft above the Caucasus Mountains. The second is Seek and Destroy, where you'll be among the U.S. HAWX squadron and tasked with the mission of nailing specific targets during a nighttime attack. Both should give you a good idea of what to expect in the final product, and provided the control and overall gameplay is both accessible and enjoyable, we should have a damn fine product. Hey, this is the point of demos; one of our personal favorite additions to this generation of gaming.  Try before you buy!

As a reminder, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 2 will be ready to deploy on September 7. For more info, check out the game's official site.

I had little interest in this before but ever since the announcement of the new Ace Combat, it's off my list for good.

Speaking of demo's, I've been downloading the Mafia 2 and some COD demo for three days now. I put them on pause before I turn the PS3 off for the day, and resume them when I turn it on the next day. Last night from about 6:00 until 11:00 (I was playing an offline game and then watched a Blu ray movie), one demo went from 2% complete all the way to 5% complete. I checked the internet connection on the PS3, it says it can download at 11.1 Mbps. Netflix streaming works perfectly. Haven't tried an online game though.

Anybody else having this problem? Is the PSN just dead slow? The store seems to work fine.

Mine downloaded in about the regular amount of time, but I got it right at 4:00 PDT on Tuesday.

Even if you are doing something "offline", PSN downloads are sometimes put on hold if the activity requires an internet connection (like some games and Blu-rays), so that may the cause of your experience last night.

Try signing out of PSN; I think you can still resume the download even when you're not logged-in.

That's exactly what it was - I was playing Red Dead Redemption and it would put the downloads on pause, and they were still on pause when I watched the movie. I got them downloaded last night in the normal amount of time.

Thanks for the advice!
