    You said the same thing about FFXIII and now you think FXIII is Satan. :laugh:

    I find it mildly disturbing that Nvidia is plastered all over the system specs. Hopefully the game will work with ATi at all, I don't see ATi printed even in the minimum specs. :ohwell: It's a shame no one will be able to run this game at "optimum specs" when it's released as the graphics cards they are saying you will need don't exist in the retail market.

    Yes I was..... maybe I didn't write that as clear as I could have.

    That's another thing I think that is really getting to me about this game. Maybe that is why I am so crabby about the game then.

    LOL, I did and I think its the first time Ive had to eat my words (about a game that is). Trust me, Metro 2033 is really good, unlike FFXIII that has about an hour of 'goodness', until you realise that you will be doing another 39 hours of the sh!t :D

    Has anyone here played it for the PC yet? How does it run on DX11 with a 5870?

    I'd like to know what the image quality is going to be like on a 5770 - looking forward to this game.

    If the 360 version is anything to go by, it should look stunning on the 5770 ;)

    I watched your video, I was impressed by your daughter's "monster noises" more than the game tbh. Actually creeped me out a little.

    I hope her music tastes change.

    Jedwood?

    >.<

    Still at least they are meeting their target audience.

    Back on topic - I didn't think this game was released until the 19th but I did see it in ASDA for sale. Does anyone have this on the PC yet with a 5k series card?

    Innocent - whenever I can get my hands on some new hardware, I can tell ya :p


    Just picked up a PC copy today - currently installing.

    You want to hear some BS, though? You have to install Steam to install the game, and if you don't have a Steam account, you have to create one.

    This game needs a lot of grunt to play at max settings. It looks absolutely amazing though. I'm currently uploading a 1080p video to YouTube. With both my cards at 875/1200, CPU at 3.8ghz I'm getting around 38 fps average max settings 1920x1200

    Sounds about on par with the system hit of STALKER:CoP . . . I can confirm that in a bit :toast:

    Plays nicely for me on High.:) (playing at 1440x900 helps)

    It does stutter at times though. But so far its been great and it looks fantastic.

    Been having one hell of a time getting it installed . . .

    Started with the installer not finding vcredist.msi, and having to go through those usual hoops to fix a broken MS C++ installation . . .

    Steam didn't want to update after the install . . .

    Attempting to start the game brings up a D3D11 installtion, which can't find a WIN update . . .

    Can't manually install the update package as the MS installers claim my system does not need to be updated . . .

    Tried to un-install what all has been installed . . . now it doesn't want to install at all . . .

    :banghead:

    So, how's this game rate on the creepy scale? Also, is it open like Fallout 3 (I didn't catch if that was answered or not)?

    Finally got it running . . . after nearly 2.5 hours of installation headaches :shadedshu

    Little ticked - I'm forced to run in DX9 ATM . . . will need to figure out why I can't run DX10.

    Otherwise, the game is visually amazing, even under DX9 render :toast:

    It probably runs in 9 or 11, just a hunch no real idea.


    By the estimated settings I could run the game at ploz?

    :D

    Free love to whom ever tells me first lol

    I might pick this game up on steam but doesn't come out in just under 3 days which sux but it will give me more time to think about buying it and see what others say about the game, plus I have to finish FFXIII anyways.

    I wonder how the performance will be with a high end system!

    Erocker, are you recording with fraps in that video?
