Yeah, it's finally here.<br><br>
Can't say much because I just passed the prologue and it gets really laggy on my compy. Below is a screenshot, 800x600, all High, Full HDR, AA4X, AS8X. Decent framerate but lags when you look into large areas.<br><br><a href="http://imageshack.us" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img71.imageshack.us/img71/2483/wowwi7.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br><br>
Will take more ss when I get home tonight.<br><br>
Anyone else got DMMM? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">

</div>that's like saying: Scarface is not GTA.... rofl... dude look at the screen! that's exactly the same as Oblivion looks. anyway gameplay is different, lees free roam as you said and more story like.... sure but it still looks the same to me :O<br />
<br />
(DOOM3, Quake4, Prey looked all the same but differents storys, gameplay etc) <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> (I know, those 3 games run the same engine)

Let me post my first impressions. I'm about halfway (if not more) through the game. I've been looking forward to this game for a long time, in fact it's the first game I have ever bought on the day the stores stocked it. EVER. And it will be my last.<br />
<br />
So far I have experienced many CTD's and even random restarts. I'm not the only one either, this game just has A LOT of bugs and a lot of patchwork left to do. Which we can all sadly expect from games these days. The graphics aren't superb like Oblivion, but they hold their own. In my own personal opinion HL2 had better gfx. The gameplay can be sweet when it lets you actually play. The loading times are HORRENDOUSLY long. Multiplayer is somewhat sketchy and lagged pretty bad. I'm guessing the servers up aren't superb yet.<br />
<br />
Again, this is all my own personal experience. If you want to buy it, I won't discourage it, but me personally I can't wait for a patch of some sort to help with these bugs. BTW I've had to restard my comp about 4 times with this game, hence why I'm taking a break right now, it gets old :-D.

Man, I played to Chapter 3 and all I can say is I waited for the game to load more than I actually get to play. Nonetheless, I find the game quite intrigue and unique type of fighting, interacting stuff...<br><br>
Here's some more ss<br><br><a href="http://imageshack.us" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img240.imageshack.us/img240/3349/l02b20003gq3.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br><br><a href="http://imageshack.us" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img240.imageshack.us/img240/5573/l02b10005cl3.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a>

I agree with waiting more for loading than game time. And I'd honestly like to think it's just my machine. But so many others have these problems that it's hard to think such a thing. BTW how do you get the fps and all that to come up? It does that on CS:S for me but I forget how I did it. . .

there is a whole 4x of aa on there dude.... can you not tell<br />
<br />
I think the game looks pretty sweet and seeing as how my Oblivion wont install anymore i might pick this up. The fighting looks far better than oblivions in the movies, but i haven't had the privelege of playing the demo <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
MaK <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
P.S. To all who say this is a cheap copy of oblivion....you know naaaaating! (nothing in Jamaican accent <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" />)<br />
<br />
Thats like saying that Baldurs Gate was a cheap copy of Diablo or Quake was a cheap version of DOOM or Fable was a cheap Zelda64 or Mortal Combat is a cheap Street Fighter....i could go on all day.

</div>i mend, that the games looks an awefull lot the same. It's just that there are so many games made everything is gonna looks te same only with a different story. We all know games are gonna look real life and everything in the world is real life looking, there is no 2D or 4D dimension in real life or other graphics <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /> The same thing is with movies, almost every idea has been brought into a movie that alot of the movies look the same on a older movie....

</div>First you need to enable ~ developer console. So go Options > Keyboard > advances, enable ~. Then go there and type net_graph 4, to disable type net_graph 0.<br />
<br />
Those were actually no AA. 1GB ram clearly can't handle all the settings and AA. However, the first ss has 4AA though.
