    I will do boss :D I hope that people will actually ask for a few screen shots of a few games, because I'm always willing to try out new games!! I simply dont have enough and want more games!! :D

    I so loved that game :D Running the timedemo was an amazing feat :D I remember running that on my Amiga!! :D
    Will that work in Windows 7 or would I have to game it on XP or something earlier??

    Well it's not mandatory, of course. Though it could make things more practical :D

    If your monitor is 1080p, I suppose so. If it is is 19something x 1200 (16:10 ratio HD equivalent) than the native res should be okay too.

    I've only got 30" screen here so 1600P is native for me!! :lol:

    I'll size them down to 1080P no problem :) If people would like to see the full res then I can send them something in an email or something :) I dont want to take up peoples bandwidth :)

    I've been playing a lot of Just Cause 2 lately. its just such a gorgeous game, especially with all the settings on the highest option :) All screenshots made with steam.

    Hanging from an antenna on top of a skyscraper
    [​IMG]

    Standing on said antenna, overlooking the bay city
    [​IMG]

    And jumping off the antenna :)
    [​IMG]

    I love the parachute
    [​IMG]

    Different antenna, at night time

    Nice weather effects

    Reenacting Top Gun, only with a nicked passenger jet

    The view from aboe is mindblowingly gorgeous
    [​IMG]

    Hey there, people of the flying zepplin night club!
    [​IMG]

    Like my stunt?
    [​IMG]

    One can also have fun being actually inside the jet
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Don't get me started on the water. I have yet to see better computerized water.
    [​IMG]

    But also the environment - beautiful
    [​IMG]

    Another night view of the bay area, this time with a gunship
    [​IMG]

    The level of detail is amazing.
    [​IMG]

    Note to self: When escaping with a Learjet, first take down the gunship with the chaingun.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Again, the water is staggering.
    [​IMG]

    Oh yeah and there's the grappling hook. Having evil fun with innocent hotel guests.
    [​IMG]

    Well you shouldn't have fidgeted around that much.
    [​IMG]

    Executions on the reoad side?
    [​IMG]

    Not on my shift!
    [​IMG]

    Reenforcements eh? Well...
    [​IMG]

    Better make a run for it. Note the excellent shape my getaway car is in.
    [​IMG]

    TEH WATERZ!!!
    [​IMG]

    ...note to self: Don't fly too low above water.
    [​IMG]

    This game even has multiple oil rigs. That are destroyable :D

    Thank you for the tour. I want to get my hands on it, but I haven't had time to play intensively any games so far. That's about to change, though.

    Just as a thought, JrRacinFan, do you own Dirt 3????

    I'd offer to bring the sausages and meat for the BBQ to go with and some of the 'salad' I eat :D Would be a good day for sure :D Bit of gaming in there as well??

    Oh what did you think of Dirt 3? I've been enjoying Dirt 2 but I'm just a bit sad to have had a 5970 to be using a single 8800GT at the moment in the rig but I'm hoping it'll still play ok :D :) I wanna get it finished!!

    I just remember that game and I think I'm gonna have to see if there's some updates to get it to run under 7 or even XP :) I have both running here :D

    Heh... :rockout:

    Dirt 3>>Dirt 2, both visually and optimization wise. Might be able to max out the game @ 1440x900/1280x1024 or 1600x900 (without AA). 3 runs alot smoother than 2 also.

    I was able to run it with the 5970 at Ultra settings even at 2560 x 1600 which looked amazing. I did love playing the game, was getting harder at the point I sold my card too!! :lol: I think it was averaging around the 70 to 80FPS mark at those settings :)

    I cant wait to get hold of Dirt 3 then :) Looks like I'll have to start saving some pennies to buy some more new games that I wont get around to gaming on for a while!! :lol:
