Although I do wonder if a bigger budget could make this game more optimized.
What's up Patrick

Yeah the article poses the same question, but obviously gives them big credit for what they did accomplish with what they had; which is why the question.

Anyway even though I really didn't get into the first one (I did complete it), based on some of the screenshots, video clips, and reading the positive reviews here and elsewhere, I'll eventually get the game. At the moment though I have no time to be starting any full fledged games. Heck, I haven't even gotten Bioshock Infinite yet, and that game is #1 on my list.

Anyway I'll eventually give LL a try as it looks like an interesting game. Plus supporting the little guy seems like a good idea for what looks like a quality game.

The problems in optimization are a result of rushed schedules and a forced release date due to them being handed from THQ to Deep Silver right at the time they would normally still be beta testing.

I actually have one of their programmers on my steam friends list. He is personally disappointed they were forced to publish before the project was 'clear', but the fact is they simply ran out of time and money. All things considered I was able to play straight through with no bugs myself.

Though I have a very stable system just in general.

At the moment people with AMD hardware shouldn't try to use advanced physx though.

There is also a known issue where lcore.exe (a logitech process) can basically intercept the game exe and stop it from properly utilizing the gpu and cpu. So if any happens by this looking for a fix those are a couple of things to look at.

Metro: Last Night - Who's in?
I loved the first Metro so I'm looking forward to this. It's already preloaded for tmw. Can't wait to try this out in surround+tri SLi. I might stand a chance of playing it smoothly lol. Who else is going to playing this at launch?
What should Windows 8 Metro be called now?
No doubt you've seen that the use of 'Metro' is being dropped for the new Windows 8 interface. I read an interesting article on some alternate names, so I thought we might create a little poll to see what would be popular.

If anyone's looking for a good weather/clock widget, then might try out the HTC or Metro Home APIs widgets. Seem to work pretty good so far with my testing them out. Lots of options there, and can add extras. (different weather providers, etc) These are Widgets, not Windows sidebar gadgets. ...
