I think some DLC is a good thing, if done properly.


But, stuff like what EA tried to pull with Dead Space 2 was just wrong I think.


For those who may not know what Im refering to...

At release they said there would be no DLC for PC, but consoles owners could buy it.

It later surfaced that not only was it available for consoles, but PCs had this DLC as well. In fact, they all had it all at release day. It was included and installed with the game. It was just locked.
You could unlock it as "DLC" for a fee.

This type of stuff is annoying, as thats not even DLC IMHO if you must pay to unlock content that was included on the game disc at release.

Um, are you trying to say that you like playing with babies' bums?

haha just joking

I think I'm gonna fire up both Portal 1 and 2 again, I just can't get tired of a little brainstorming when games are involved... Wish I could do that in real life xD

I picked up Madness Returns, and didnt even realize this was going to be available at the time.

So hopefully Ill be able to pick it up this weekend.

Please do give us your thoughts, and a couple screenies please
I really liked the FEAR games as well, and hoping this one is just as good at the least, and hopefully better.

Installed Far Cry and 64bit patch and content the other day. All installed and runs fine so far. Better than it did for me in xp and with my same older vid card. Far Cry is not on the list here??

Playing at extra high settings- water is ultra high with added world shadows- 8x aa 10af looks great and recording my vids at 30fps no probs- not recording getting 70 to over 100fps. I am a lil amazed really.



The 64bit Far Cry rocks and likes my system.

Love this game 1 of the best of all times and still can stand with newer games in every way.. Far Cry and JustCause2 are the most pretty games I have and play..

** looks better in game- video not bad tho- will add more later- Youtubes codec does not seem to like the grass much->

Immediate thought - Consolitis with tons of achievements flashing on the screen

Honestly I wish I could turn that off as I personally find it annoying. I'm not looking for achievements, I'm looking to complete the game.

It appears you can't shoot enemies while they're standing on grated stairs above you. I guess the floor has an invisible shield that prevents bullets from going through

Also not really impressed with the graphics - perhaps it's the area I'm in, though I just completed Level 1.

And there is that grainy look that was so prevalent in FEAR 2, though it didn't really bother me like it is here.

Besides that, you can't complain about action - there's plenty of that in the first level.

As for screenshots - unless the game allows for them, I can't get them as I don't use screen capturing programs. I suppose I could do Windowed mode and try to capture some but....

Anyway that's it for now.

I may create my own thread for the game if other people are interested, or plan on getting the game. We'll see how it goes here.
