    Cool looks better than the vids i've seen. Looks more rusty old which is what i liked about S.T.A.L.K.E.R...

    So you liking it tigger ?.. I should have my copy in about a 70 mins :). The download is 5.5GB and i'll post pics later today.

    Those screenshots look great. I can tell already that the environment will be fun to play in.

    +1 for dilapidated cities.

    Is that Max detail Tigger? Looks like at least 2xAA is enabled. Can you share a word on performance :D

    :(. The good thing is that you be able to check out what people say about it and all :).

    Just been reading about FC2 in Dead Space thread about lame spawns which makes me even happier that i did not bother with it.

    I never trust them.. Kinda like GOTY to me load of BS in a lot of cases all though i think this might be worthy of the awards though.

    IGN gave the game a 9.6 BTW. Check out the video review, its pretty solid. I will buy this game after I finish FC2 and Dead Space. I have too many games lately and haven't finished any of them! I may even wait until X-Mas to treat myself to Fallout 3. I know it will take me a few months to complete Fallout 3 anyway. In the IGN review, he said the game can be beaten in 20-30 hours. But to COMPLETE the game, it will take 100+ hours. :eek:

    Thankyou for the screenshots.
    I want this game so bad.

    @Tigger
    How is it running on your system?
    Is it smooth or a little bit stuttery like Oblivion?

    Hmmm the depressed cow has an unusually big udder. . . .wonder if the females in fallout 3 are affected this way as well.
