    Don't know, the multiplayer looks very unbalance, I mean, the opponent has the same units as you! I will wait the nerf patch.

    It's funny, because its a joke about pirating.

  3. SHODAK on March 31st, 2011 10:59 am

    Pfff, typical, letting noobs buy their way to victory. A real player can win with just pawns, you know, a piece that actually requires skill?

    Psh I played chess on boards back before it went all "mainstream" and sold out, it's ruined now.

    *goes back to playing DS*

    First Chess Hero, then Backgammon Band…it's a never ending cycle.

    Rated RP? For what, RiPoff?

  8. Howlingwolf214 on March 31st, 2011 11:10 am

    This game is so glitchy. My Knight piece can only move in a stupid L shape! What a rip.

    No Checkers Mode, no sale.

    *shells out $60 for game anyway*

    remember back in the day when you could buy a game for any system and it came with everything that there was to on the game on release day?

  11. Moggsster on March 31st, 2011 11:14 am

    The problem with this pic is that Activision publishes the hero games, not EA.

  12. SHODAK on March 31st, 2011 11:22 am

    Don't worry, I've heard that you can unlock one of the bonus pieces every time you beat the board with a pawn.

    I've noticed this too, I actually have a signature on a website somewhere that says "Is the DLC for real life out yet? God left me unfinished with only three limbs and I would really like to have that last one now."

    This is done way better though and conveys what I've been feeling for a long time. Oh, and if you pre-order at GameStop you also get the limited edition master chief skin.

  14. Vlauer on March 31st, 2011 11:50 am

    Post-order at Water (OLOLO STEAM) to get an exclusive final boss, Garri Kasparov!

    Just fired up my trusty ol' copy of F-Zero GX last night after seeing two copies for $5 at the used game store. My how times have changed.

  16. Squikker2001 on March 31st, 2011 12:26 pm

    Lame. The last map in the second pack is just a re-release of the "ctk_classic" map that came with the original Chess Hero!

    Queen is OP'd needs to be nerfed…

  19. Coodoo17 on March 31st, 2011 2:10 pm

    Great example of money grabbing DLC. Marvel vs Capcom 3’s new Shadow Mode release. Where they literally charge you to fight AI opponents with either a Street Fighter team, a Resident Evil team, or a Darkstalkers team. That’s it.

    No hats?


  22. Leo E. on March 31st, 2011 2:41 pm

    Pfft… Map Pack 1 was crap. Just look at 2! Black & White, it's so retro.

  23. Alpar on March 31st, 2011 3:14 pm

    As opposed to the fact the PS3 actually has a few games.

    Don't get me wrong, it really does at this point. At least 5.

  24. BoxeyBrown on March 31st, 2011 3:43 pm

    Hmm, but are there easy achievements on the xbox version?

  25. Dycro on March 31st, 2011 4:14 pm

    3/4 of the achievements come from the DLC content only.

    Here's some good DLC (for this game):
    <img src="; alt="">
    a king (Kingman)

    <img src="; alt="">
    a pawn (Pawniard)

    <img src="; alt="">
    a knight ('I'm on a horse' guy -- can't remember his name)

    <img src="; alt="">
    the bishop (pedo-pope)

    <img src="; alt="">
    the rook/castle (the one the princess ISN'T in!)

    finally, (I think this one's self-explanitory):
    <img src="; alt="" />

  28. SpartanJedi on March 31st, 2011 4:23 pm

    Pfft…I know your type. Once they do, you'll just turn around and whine about how the king's too powerful and needs to be nerfed!

  29. Zyquux on March 31st, 2011 4:35 pm

    No UNLOCKABLE hats.*

    Scout, Soldier, Demo, Engie, and Sniper all have default hats, but still have unlockables. This game does not have any unlockables.

    Granted, they will probably be added to the in game store later. All the cool games are doing it, even Minecraft!

  30. Jimmy on March 31st, 2011 5:09 pm

    Read about mod checkers from forums and other places
    Think about how awesome that must be.

    Wonder how they do that
    …then wonder how magnets work.

  31. Zyquux on March 31st, 2011 5:21 pm

    The Pawn Chips were fun to use, though!

  32. SpartanJedi on March 31st, 2011 5:38 pm

    Is it a bad thing when people who have barely hit adulthood can reminisce about the "good old days"?

  34. FlareKitsu on March 31st, 2011 8:36 pm

    And soon to be the sad state of PC gaming, if TF2 is any indication.

  35. Red on March 31st, 2011 8:38 pm

    similar to this:
    <img src="; alt="" />
    but with chess pieces

  36. RoverTHX on March 31st, 2011 9:14 pm

    and yet, this has to be the best game ever offered in this form of money whoring.

  37. Citrovc4 on April 1st, 2011 2:07 am

    Wonder if theres a Chinease Chess expansion pack..

    on a related note im gonna go play (and get my ass kicked) an online game of chess.

  38. FlareKitsu on April 1st, 2011 8:12 am

    Whoops. Looks like we've got some butthurt PC trolls.
