    oh, I looked under Hot Deals, did not see your post sorry.

    Just got done playing about 25 minutes of it, best $5.99 I have ever spent. Shooting feels solid and realistic, graphics are awesome, Dubai setting is amazing, maxing it on all settings with my GTX 660 non-ti version. :)

    This game rocks ass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Holy shit, I haven't had this much fun in a shooter in a long time... xD THIS GAME IS INTENSE xD

    Don't go to fast good tonight, buy this instead folks, you can thank me later. Also, disable FXAA, it makes the sand look like shit.

    already got my 5.99 worth, tis a great game. shooting feels realisitc and solid, the AI is intelligent, dodging glass that I shoot from buildings to fall on there heads, when I got on a turret they all ran away instead of standing there like idiots xD

    20 guys attacking froma dubai skyscraper, i just shot out the windows and the just sliced some guys open, then sandstrom comes and blows them all, then throws the cement block im hiding behind almost on me, two dubai guys start shooting at me, then there is short micrsecond max payne 3 time bullet moment that lets me get aim and takem out, but it only lasts a microsecond

    Currently downloading, and after Phusius's enthusiasm, I'm eager to give it a go! 27% @2.7MB/s, but we don't need to get into the whole MB/s (steam vs origin) haha :laugh:

    I was about to order it, but remembering the scripted shooting corridors of the demo, no nice sandstorm can fix this...

    Your loss man, I am having a blast with it, almost 1 hour gameplay in it now. AI is surprisingly intelligent, I am rather impressed.

    I know how you feel. I want to support Kickstarter games, but you have to go through Amazon, and I used to work at Amazon and hated how they treated their workers. So until they add Paypal as a way to pay and support kickstarter games, no dice for me.

    2 places, easiest is in the email confirmation (small note: i just rechecked. I DID see my key before, and now after selecting to see images, I can't see it. Instead a link to my gamefly account, hence point 2). The other place is in your order history in your gamefly account

    yes, if paypal would have been an option I would be downloading it, but instead I reminded the demo and ...

    A real shame, as trending topic Borderlands 2 is also so boring. Back to Iron Front/ Arma ''44

    JUST BEAT SPEC OPS 3 MINUTES AGO, GAME ROCKED ASS!!!!!!!! HOLY SHIT THAT WAS FUN!!!!!! xD been awhile since I had this kind of fun... your decisions actually matter and you can see them unfold throughout the game in the short term and long term, gameplay is excellent, story is 10/10

    and after you beat it once u have an itch an actual itch to play it over again and make different decisions... yes your decisions mean that much :) /ROCKOUT

    That's what I'm talking about. I want a game to give me decisions to make, and then have me end up regretting my decisions because I can't stomach them :D (catch that there?)

    You guys should put in for a PayPal debit card. Its free, and is covered by PayPal for fraud and what not. It also gives you 1.5% cash back when used.
