Hmm, I promised myself I wouldn't buy anymore games after how boring Rage was but the latest issue of Hyper gave this 9/10 and said it was heaps of fun to play. Also have Skyrim pre-ordered and I can see myself getting bored with that pretty quick. Hard decision.

I still have the second one on Steam and have never even installed it. I'm an idiot, I know.

The PC port for it is awful.

Bepatient, not missing much except a buggy ass port.

If you're running your CPU at exactly 3.2ghz though, it will probably work fine -_-

On the other hand, I was trying to play with my 4ghz phenom II and GTX 580 and it was literally unplayable...

Apparently the closer to a 360's CPU speed, the better the game runs, the further away, the slower/faster it runs and lags.

I played them SR1&2 on the xbox, so never had any problems. Loved all the games and can't wait to add this to the pile of games coming out this last quarter. Spoiled for games, I love it!

I have been playing around with the "Initiation Station" (Character creation suite) that was released the other day. It's fun to play around with and make some weird looking people. I would suggest everyone that wants to play the game get it and play around. I got early access due to a code at another website but it should be up on PSN, XBL and Steam.

Checked and it is up (on Steam at least).

im finding downloading games playing 10-20min and if i like it buy it, otherwise delete is a good system these days.

Way too many hyped up games that are dogballs when you play them

Welcome to the last 5 years, Scoobs :P

PC piracy in and of itself isn't causing lost sales, but rather the people find out how s*** the game is from pirating, then realise it's not worth the money.

So basically, make good games devs! Piracy has actually made me BUY games before!

True of so many ported games. So glad i spent a few dollars on a wireless dongle to get my xbox controllers to work

While not good justification for piracy, I too pirated quake 3 for maybe 3 weeks. Then I wanted to play online instead of sharing a CD key with my friend and having to get off every time he wanted to play. I only wanted to play that much because Quake 3 was awesome.

Nowdays I rarely pre-order a game. I pre ordered SC2, WoW (vanilla) and WC3:TFT. If it's not a blizzard game I have not pre-ordered it.

Actually that's a lie, i pre-ordered whatever that Warhammer Online MMORPG was. With the pre-order i downpaid 20 dollars and got an online code to play the beta. After being horribly disappointed I reneged on my pre order and only lost 20 dollars. I have spent 20 dollars much better in video game terms.
