Higher resolution textures don't require any extra system performance, just more memory. If you don't have enough memory you can just kick the texture quality down a notch, or adjust other video options that effect memory like the AA level. For reference sake I checked at 1080p and 4xAA and everything else cranked, my VRAM usage was topping out at just under 1.2 GB and the game process itself was using nearly 1.3 GB.

Not true. You only show up if you are running in online mode, and launch via Steam.
Well of course whatever fraction of the player base uses offline mode won't show up on the Steam stats. As for not launching via Steam, launching Skyrim launchs Steam unless you're using a crack. Regardless, the fact remains that comparing Steam's player stats between a Steamworks game and a non-Steamworks game doesn't rightly prove which game has a larger player base.

Considering we are having a discussion about Steam sales, I think using Steam numbers would be an entirely fair comparison. If people buy their games somewhere other than Steam, they aren't going to show up on Steam's top ten list, now are they?

Krovven was talking about Steam's player stats, and in the case of Steamwork games like Skyrim, everyone shows up on those stats regardless of if they bought the game directly from Steam or elsewhere.

I disagree.

Go with that. AC2 and AC:R combine for less than 1500 players on Steam, Brotherhood isn't even listed. Skyrim has 80,000. Have fun disagreeing with fact.

Skyrim is a Steamworks game, so pretty much everyone who bought it shows up on the Steam count. The AC games aren't Steamworks games, so only the people who bought the games through Steam show up on the Steam count. Granted, I've little doubt Skyrim has far more people playing than all the AC games combined anyway, but using Steams numbers isn't a fair comparison.

Did they recently fix Cops n' Crooks? Last I tried, when you die it puts you in a glitched out spectator mode that runs at about a frame a second, and then kicks you because your game is running slow.

If ppl cancelled their pre-order for what they saw in the beta, its their stupid fault cos its not the full fucking game.
It was the roughest "beta" I've ever played, and seemed more like alpha code considering how easy it was to fall through the map and the lack of rebinding mouse buttons and chat commands. I didn't preoder, but would have canceled if I had, and will be waiting to hear about a lot of fixes before I consider buying the game.

It seems my Newegg preorder won't show up until tomorrow, so I won't be able to check for myself until then, but based on previous id games the likely solution is simply to put the tweaks in an autoexec.cfg file in the game's base folder.

Guess you never played Perfect Dark's remake for the XBLA. That game made the transition to dual analog VERY easily.
Perfect Dark, and Goldeneye, supported dual analog from the start, using 2 N64 controllers.

Brotherhood mulitplayer is a blast, and the mouse isn't so wonky in that, just some smoothing which is bearable since it's not a shooter.

I've never seen a 5:4 CRT. Some say their recommended resolution is 1280x1024, but you're better off running them at 1280x960 to use the full screen without distorting the aspect ratio.

DirectX 11 has been available from MS since the release of Windows 7. It's also available for Vista. ATI had their DX11 cards out in Sept 09. You're about a year and 1/2 late.
He's right about it still not being part of the DirectX package from Microsoft though. It comes with 7, but on Vista you have to download an update package which just makes some vague reference to game graphics without any mention of DirectX.

Krovven wrote on Mar 24, 2011, 22:15:
Combining Power & Speed suit functions to the default mode for the suit makes sense. The main reason being it gets the player out of that annoying radial menu and allows the player to make faster and better use of the other suit mechanics, for more dynamic combat. So the suit functions are by hotkey only.
I never used the radial menu in the previous games, but rather the suit shortcuts option. Doubletap jump or melee for power, sprint for speed, crouch for cloak, and back for armor. I liked that system much better, particularly being able to instantly power jump rather than the delayed power jump we have now.

Anyway, aside from the bugs, like the nanosuit upgrade points disappearing when you quit the game, the many ranked lobbies where the game never starts, and the seriously jacked reflections, Crysis 2 is a good game in its own right. As a sequel though it feels like a step back in a lot of ways.

You suck Ubisoft.
While I've got my share of gripes with Ubisoft, they don't have anything to do with Deus Ex or Thief.

Can anyone explain how the parachute thrusters are supposed to work? I see them on the 'chute, but they don't seem to have any effect.

Huh, I just mute morons like that, and didn't play much Halo 3 due to the crappy framerate.
