How do you know if another patch is coming out soon?

Badly made game, must be the new Crysis.

It's the problem with the game itself. It has a memory leak.

It's because you're system is not powerful enough for GTA IV.

So does GTA IV. Just take a look at some of the screenshots I posted. Those weren't even on the highest settings.

Mmm Crysis.

They have a patch to stop the run away memory leaking and hammering cpu's without actually using them.

Its using that Much RAM and Page File coz I disabled the memory restrictions

Also I don't think this is not a badly coded game, there is so much happening in the game, which is why it uses so much memory.

Lets see what it does,

You have 10-15 Pedestrians on screen, with 10-15 drivers in cars all infused withh Euphoria technology and physics. All with a mind of their own and aware of their surroundings. Now all this physics work is being done on the CPU which is why it uses so much CPU. Sorry dual core guys.

This is like doing Nvidia PhysX on CPU, obviously it runs slow on CPU than GPU.

If you don't know what Euphoria is, watch this video
http://www.naturalmotion.com/euphoria.htm

and its implementation in game
