    Has anyone played this yet?
    I just started the walking controls are kinda wonky but not so much that it distracts from the game.
    So far it's a pretty solid game.
    opinions?
    Any desire to play?
    Shut the fuck up and jump out of a car?

    Got it on a steam sale when it was up for preorder, haven't touched it yet. I know the PC boys have been up in arms since the promotional vids that were shown when the game was announced look a whole lot better than what came out, and are spouting the usual PC conspiracy theories that PC versions are getting nerfed, to make the console versions look better.

    It is good for the most part. It kinda reminds me of a mix between red dead redemption and skyrim.

    Yeah I'm playing it on PC. Don't really like having to look at the dude so much and never liked the quest games or whatever they're called but as far as a game with it's functionality, things to do etc etc its pretty great.

    I read there's a patch out to make PC performance better

    Always compare games to Max Payne 3 and I'd say this is around the same level overall as far as how well it's done (first one I'd say that about).

    You'll need a very good PC to play it at full resolution.

    Sad state of affairs, but I don't see it changing soon. We're paying game companies to beta-test their products.

    All of these games are cannibalizing which other, which is a good thing.

    Seems like they've figured out what people like.

    Dying Light copied shit from Assassin's Creed Black Flag, etc they're all copying each other and adding to it.
