    Any point in me downloading the demo for my 9800gtx? Can I run it at max settings? Or should I wait until I get a replacement gtx260.....

    Bioshock 2 is not that demanding at all, the graphics look exactly the same as the first!

    Just right click on the game icon in the steam menu and select create desktop icon.

    right clicking on that shortcut file wont give him any DX9/10 options, even if he adds it to game explorer

    But can't you just add "-DX9" to the end of the program target?

    I'm having some issues as well, and I run an ATI system. It hasn't crashed on me but these are the things that are happening.

    1. Some artifacting
    2. I have the mouse movement set to 1. After I load the game it's fine (smooth) but then when I save it or it auto-saves it becomes all jerky.
    3. I've changed some of the default buttons on the keyboard and again after a save or auto-save they will stop working sometimes.

    Awesome game!

    Is it just me or is the story line ridiculously over-complicated?

    Did you guys know this is running off the Unreal 2 engine? Thats not a typo. The Unreal Two engine. Chalk another one up to consolitus. Low polygon count and crappy textures FTL.

    Still looks nice IMO. And it's the unreal engine 2.5.

    Unreal 3 is available... why not use that? The reason is that they wanted to be lazy and reuse content from the first game.

    I went through the SP again today and rescued every lil sister after gathering more Adam and protecting them. got lots of achievements this time through and since I knew what to expect this time around, I was able to get the Big Brass Balls achievement (not using vita chambers). Not that I really care about getting achievements because that name makes me laugh and I never did it on the first Bioshock.

    Never did the fully upgraded weapon achievement either in the first. But I made that my challenge this game. Between both games I have all achievements between the 2 haha.

    I already said this like days ago..lol..
    in the desktop shortcut for dvd users.
    in steam options for steam users..

    slackers.. learn to read... :p

    yea unreal 2.5 was a lame ass thing to do to the gaming community when unreal 3 was available.
    they knew they had a selling title and they milked it while spending as little as possible.
    Typical greedy tactic.

    The graphics were pretty much the same as the first wich was fine by me why change them when they were fine to start of with.
