From what I see on the NeGaf thread about the PC version this isn't Crysis 3. I see lots of those dread "jaggies" in Ultra screenshots.

Lol, keep the Jelly coming man.

As for jaggies, it's not like Pc's don't have 101 ways to force AA ona  game. From FX, to the graphics control panel. It's posisble the game itself doesn't have a very good AA solution. somethign that borks you console gamers (well, maybe you're used to jaggies by now I guess), but doesn't hamper us Pc gamers.

Not really a surpise, considering the racism this game seems to have and when it took place.

Also how the kb/m? A thing I found interesting about the gameinformer review was that the guy commented on kb/m having some quirks and recommends controller.

Nah I was actually shocked at how jaggy those screenshots were even from a console view. I'm sure someone will come up with a fix, but the members on NeoGaf seemed to be impressed with the way it looks now. Check it out for yourself.

I think the issue s Vsync. Man, I can;t believe they still have that issue on that engine. That goes back to the original Bioshock. anyway, you should be able to fix it byt turning vsync off in game, and turning it on in the graphics panel. Or you can use the tripple buffering utility (I forget the name - someone help me out), or running wiht it off, if you've got a fast monitor.

The "fix" is to turn up AA. The user who uploaded those shots probably didn't want the performance hit. If I am not getting 60fps, AA is the first to go

Does it make sense it turn the settings up to Ultra and have it look like crap? Could you have say medium and turn the AA on? Been a while since I had adjust settings for a game, but I remember being it being a pain in the ass finding a compromise to get RE5 running at an acceptable framerate with with good graphics. I probably did the benchmark test about 20 or times. Then the V-Sync to locked 30 fps or screen tearing option which seems to be a problem here. I don't miss it.

I wasn't sure. People kept asking about an HD textures pack too.

Based on what I read, the HD texture pack is already included in the PC Digital version. There is no separate download for it like there was for Sleeping Dogs or Skyrim

[QUOTE="BPoole96"][QUOTE="Heil68"][QUOTE="BPoole96"] I doubt the GOTY edition (if there even is one at all) will release before Black Friday

You buying the DLC day one? you save like $10 if you do.

I just bought it, last time I looked at the details for the Season Pass there were hardly any info on it. Figured since I got 3 games for free plus $15 in credit I could throw 2K a bone and buy a Season Pass for once.

I think ill break my no buy DLC rule and get this.

"Mind-blowing ending that you won't soon forget." It's an interesting twist but "Would you kindly?" was more shocking. I guess the ending would be considered good by video game standards.

Causes input lag and makes mouse movement unresponsive. With that and mouse smoothing off I have no problems at all with it. Not the smoothest mouse control in an FPS but not bad either. I much prefer the mouse precision over my gamepad for it. Default keyboard controls are sh!t though and need to be reconfigured

I read spoilers before and while some of it seems to be true it didn't spoil things as much as I thought. I think I know how things will get to that conclusion though

Ah I see. And like System Shock 2 with the crappy default kb controls eh? Not that it would be a big deal anyway.

Yeah, me too. I just hope it adds 10-15 hours of gameplay across all 3 DLC's, but maybe that's hoping for too much. :P

Nowadays most of Sony's developers in-house are Western. What happened in Japan? Couldn't move past turn-based RPGs. That seems to be all they are good for now...and hand-held games.

GOTY!

I hate to be that person, but I think it should have gotten a 9.5. Kevin barely criticized it and said that the worst thing was minor quirks. If that can't transcend a 9.0, then nothing will. 

17/36 reviews on Metacritic are 100s. Wow.

Myself and most others would that Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the best by Square Enix in the last decade. I have not played Just Cause 2 though.

Tomb Raider was also great and still want to play Hitman: Absolution. They are very good in publishing role.
