I hope that this game is so successful that all the other devs in the gaming industry will take notice and we get a bunch of Star Wars games in the future. I'm not even sure if that's possible though due to licensing. Someone on Blues must know how that works.

It's not. EA own the exclusive rights for the next 8+ years.

At least it's not Activision who owns it.
We would see a new StarWars themed Call of Duty game every six months plus DLC on a monthly bases.
You'd have to refinance your house every year to pay for all the DLC

Very informative review on the Techspot. Good to see how the different GPU/CPU fares in GTA5.

Hopefully the Witcher 3 will also be available to preload via GOG.
Did anyone preorder from GOG before know if they do preloads like Steam?

Not sure a platformer is the kind of game you'd want to play in early access. Recipe for frustration.
Exactly. This is pretty weird, why they do this.

uh... what happened here?
A really nice fellow Blues user sent me an invite but for some technical issues I couldn't reply to his messages so I was replying to him here but erased the personal info ones it wasn't needed anymore.
If you ask nicely I am sure someone with an invite can hit you up

Was supposed to, but Amazon never sent me the code.
You should contact them. I found amazon customer support to be top notch.

Also, I'm pretty sure a fair fraction of those people didn't pay $60. There have been deals going on for $30-46, right on launch day.
I think he was referring to the Steam version which hasn't been on sale.

Still can't start the game. The loader just loads forever and nothing happens. I tried everything, no go.

Your windows login name doesn't include any non-standard characters, does it? That's a documented issue, and you can't just change the login name, you need to make a new user with admin rights.

It does. But I don't get the error messages that the documented issue shows, so I'm not sure that's it. I was actually able to start the game once this morning. But that's it, broken again now. Oh and it's impossible for me to create a new user.
Did you check if you have any mis match file sizes that was posted in the other thread?
Many people had files partially downloaded or corrupted, after re downloading them the game started up fine.

Edit: here is the link

Yeah people are selling those game codes ever since the promo started. No difference from any other promo for games in the past.

After spending some time with it I've concluded the game is extremely CPU dependent, even a mild OC on my 2500k makes a massive difference in framerate while swapping GPUs had little effect on performance. It's a good port overall but it feels like it could still use some optimization to offload more to the GPU, mine doesn't even max utilization sometimes. Anyone who is looking to increase performance for this game is probably better off upgrading their CPU rather than their GPU.

Hmm, I noticed a massive difference swapping from my GTX 680 to the GTX 980. My CPU is an i5 3,2ghz (or something near that) and I'm not experiencing any slowdowns except.. for some reason the outskirts areas (where Trevor starts) seem to piss my card off every now and then, and only ever so slightly. Must be the dust... or maybe the "long shadows" casting an insane amount of long shadows for every single bush out there.. :\ I remember someone saying dynamic shadows are CPU heavy.
You may want to check the grass details too, I've heard that kills the performance.

Yep, these guys aren't rushing their games out. They are one of my favorite devs and I'll buy their games with max confidence...

I definitely use to feel this way about them until their botched Red Orchestra 2 release. I didn't even mind the bugged release, but their unfulfilled promise of a co-op campaign for RO2 has not been forgotten. It's not going to stop me from getting KF2 because I like the improvements I've seen over KF1, but any "planned features" they have will be looked at differently than before.
Yeah I can see how that could change your mind about them.
