    Ok, i haven't been a really big pc gamer, but the last time i checked there was minimum and recommended. That is one helluva list of specs!

    I've been deliberately not following this thread or any media associated with this game as i don't want anything ruined. Typically, i've a stag that weekend, but by jesus i'll have it Sunday!


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,752 ✭✭✭Mr Blobby


    Anyone know if Gamestop are still doing 25% trade in when pre-ordering ?

    looking to get this on Pc.... hopefully i can run it.

    Do you think a gtx 260 896mb and core 2 quad q9330 @2.50ghz would run it at high settings? the resolution on my monitor is 1650*1080


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


    It'll probably run it solidly at medium to high.

    I'm just about to install my second 6950 now, wish me luck :p

    Lads, as this game is steamworks, if I install from a disc, will it have to activate on steam and show up in my list of games, like skyrim? Or will installing from the disc avoid all DRM?

    You'll have to activate it on steam, if it was just a disc install you'd probably end up with far more invasive drm than the handy steam install.:pac:

    All good, cheers :D Should handle the suped up graphics stuff for this game quite nicely now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 456 ✭✭Browning2010


    Not long now, can't wait for it.

    I pre ordered this on Amazon, can I expect to have it here on Friday? Or will they only post it out on Friday?

    Haven't pre ordered a game in a long time.

    Amazon never ship early for release day delivery in Ireland, in the UK yes. You will get it on Monday at the earliest.

    Maybe it's because I live in the middle of nowhere, but I've ordered a load of games on Gamestop.ie and rarely gotten them on release day.

    No don't like gamestop.

    I'm not really bothered it will just build the anticipation haven't to wait.

    Just hope the game doesn't turn out to be a let down.

    I did for Max Payne and a few others, (since it was the CE and was coming in a massive box). Now I just go for standard post.

    God I really want this to be good, feel like here has been a gaming drought the last while, thinking about picking it up on day one, I'm sick of having nothing new to play.

    For anyone who is buying on day one and looking for a good deal check out your local xtravision, with big games for some reason mine always gets too many rental copies. The then put them on the shelf as pre owned at €45 even though they have have never been played. I got both Arkham City and Max Payne this way.

    Do you know if you can customize any cars? I saw some cool street racing modded cars but dunno if you design them yourself.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 17,661 ✭✭✭✭Helix

    This scares me as you usually have a good take on games. Would also like to know what is making you feel this way. Repetition? Or do you mean once you've you've completed the story?


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,979 ✭✭✭✭Exclamation Marc


    There's no multiplayer in the game which I am actually quite happy about.

    It'll be much like Assassins Creed 2 as in I'll be pushing for 100% completion and a nice platinum to boot.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 17,661 ✭✭✭✭Helix


    what'll make me get bored is that i have a very low tolerance for GTA-esque games

    the go here, do this, fetch that, go there formula bores me to tears


  • Registered Users Posts: 29,824 ✭✭✭✭Zero-Cool


    Gamesradar gave it 4.5/5

    Also, there are 6 months of DLC coming out. 1st one being on release day called 'Retro Triad Pack' - "the 80s-inspired Retro Triad Pack, a killer old school outfit with its own player buffs and funky kung-fu van". It launches this very week, in time for the game's release on 17th August.

    i am watching TBs WTF on it and it looks not bad. A very nice touvh, that they did worked a bit more on PC version instead of copy paste console version.

    One thing that is missing for me ( and all open world city games ): the lack of population. it should be a busy city, but its just few people on busy streets. i know it is limited by hardware, but it could be better then that. :(

    i think ill put it in to my "get on steam sale" folder.
