    If you have a Just Cause 2 save file on your hard drive, you will have access to Rico's outfit from launch. Wearing the outfit means you will be able to action hijack other vehicles from an even greater distance. Fairly cool.

    Dang. Wish I'd seen this earlier, would have picked up a copy of Just Cause 2 while I was getting Spec Ops: The Line. :\

    Had to watch it to see what that AC comment was about. Looked it up and getting AC gives you a health buff apparently :pac:

    Great preview, roll on the 17th!!

    Just couldn't help yourself could you!

    Everytime I see I got a new thread notifcation from this thread and I see your name I know it's usually some good video etc though I was hoping it was demo/specs annoucement :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 29,825 ✭✭✭✭Zero-Cool


    HAHA no! Really trying to avoid it but can't help myself.

    Hearing rumours the demo is being released next week. They will have to release specs before a pc demo anyway but it was seen on Steam, there will be a free Hi-Res dlc for sleeping dogs so looks like the PC version will be getting a nice treatment.

    Just pre ordered this on amazon, can't wait for it, I'm expecting big things from it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 29,825 ✭✭✭✭Zero-Cool


    Police Investigation Video. You have to get a cop desguise and investigate crime scenes for evidence helping track a serial killer among other crimes. Sounds class! Only watched the start of the vid. Took a lot to stop tho.

    Very strange that nothing announced yet considering its out in a weeks time :eek: All I know is the download from steam is around 5-6GB so not crazy big... though that's prob not fully expanded size.


  • Registered Users Posts: 29,825 ✭✭✭✭Zero-Cool


    A square enix employee said on the official forums that the demo on steam was only meant to be a press / preview demo. They said it's a pity steam files are open like this because it may have given false hope for a demo. Saying that, there still might be a demo. At this point, I could do without one, just waiting to lash into the game.

    In the thread below, people are asking about PC specs and one of the devs said he was told he could not tell people yet but he is basically confirming if people can play or not with their setup. If you read through the posts, you might find a similar setup to yourself.

    I wanted the demo as I wanted something to play for next week ;)

    From that forum apparently they found the (minimum?) specs on the japenese website which were not denied:
    Version of the Windows operating environment required is as follows. (Windows95/98/ME/2000/XP is not supported) Microsft Windows Vista ® / Windows 7: OS CPU: 2.4GHz or Intel ® Core2Duo2.0GHz AthlonX2 more than 2GB: Main Memory or 11 compatible DirectX ® 10: graphics board or more ATI Radeon3870 or AMD ATI card NVIDIA ® GeForce8800GT or NVIDIA ® more than 320MB: graphics memory Sound board compatible with DirectX ®: Sound Board 10GB: HDD capacity disk drive: Dual-Layer DVD drive that corresponds to the (dual-layer disc) Internet connection and service required for the authentication procedure: Internet

    Glad that the game is DX11 supported (Bye XP!) which was mentioned earlier in that thread. Seems like game is well optimised though hopefully they sorted the GUI etc for mouse/keyboard.

    Sleeping Dogs gets it's first official review score of a 9/10. Embargo is still up so they just gave their score and a few teasers like below.

    "This is the game Saints Row has spent a decade desperate to be, a rollercoaster open-world adventure set in an environment that's fun to explore and doss about in, and packed to the brim with rousing missions, happy diversions and other amazing stuff."

    The environments remind me so much of Shenmue 2, that this is a must have. Really looking forward to it now.

    Really glad they are giving the PC extra graphical features among other things and not just porting the console version over.

    Massively excited about this game. I've been following it all Summer and quietly praying it wouldn't be a flop (that inevitable feeling)....

    First two reviews have it at 9/10......

    Cannot wait til Friday week :)


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 80,335 Mod ✭✭✭✭Sephiroth_dude


    preordered for pc from gamestop :)


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 28,633 Mod ✭✭✭✭Shiminay


    Pre-ordered this myself from Gamestop yesterday for PC, hadn't been paying any attention to it at all until one of the lads in the office mentioned it and showed me a trailer. Really looking forward to it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 29,825 ✭✭✭✭Zero-Cool


    Looks like you'd need a monster PC to get it running like above. Just one more week! Ton of walthrough vids online at the moment but no way am I even tempted to look at them, completely wreck any story and surprise that are left. Happy to sit and wait 7 days.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 28,633 Mod ✭✭✭✭Shiminay


    Luckily, I picked up a second video card yesterday so I can get me some Crossfire action :D

    Recommended GPU is a GTX560, which isn't mad at all.
