Pretty cool. It grows on you as it goes along.

Demo has 4 levels. It's well presented and smooth but the level graphics and in-between dialogue aren't great.

Still, was fun

Now if I could just play for more than 40 minutes without the game crashing because its run out of memory, that would be great!
My buddy changed his page file to 1.5 x his RAM and he hasn't had memory issues since.

Also, I read about setting the priority of GTA to high and the launcher to low, but that actually caused stuttering for me

I don't have any custom music Quinn, so that can't be the problem.

It's very, very slight, the stuttering.

I think I'll try giving dx 10.1 a go tonight and see what happens. I'll try disabling soft shadows, too.

I run with Nvidia enabled Vsync. Seems to be fine compared to ingame Vsync but I'll try that again

Have any of you noticed a specific setting that cause fps drops or judder?

Advanced distance scaling seems to do this for me even if set low on the slider.
Mind you, I have no other advanced options enabled.

GTX 970 here as well

I got the same card recently too. Definitely worth the upgrade! It barely fits in my computer it's so freaking big! But it's quiet and cool.

I had a bad moment at first seeing it was clearly not going to fit in my case, but then I saw that Cooler Master cleverly made the part of the drive bays that were blocking the back of the card removable, and there was plenty of room once I removed that. Whew.

I got the Zotac 970, and it's something like 9.5 inches. It's a pretty brilliant, open design.
Never thought I'd buy a Zotac, but so far I'm quite satisfied

I think I'm more inclined to get this once it's finished.

For this type of game, to me, early access doesn't make a ton of sense
The level editor does sound pretty cool, though

No space battles, probably cut for DLC... rumors of "on rail AT-AT's" and non-flyable Y-Wings to bomb said AT-AT...
Wow if any of that is true, that's awful

Of course we're living in the world of Kickstarter madness, so I'm sure Remedy could make Alan Wake 2 if they really wanted to.
Would definitely back that.

They're all tied up with MS though

Have you noticed a recurring trend of certain people thinking they're cool by being outspoken, and conveniently disliking what people are enjoying? There's always at least one who wants to come into the thread where everyones having fun, and drop their turd, just to see what happens.

It's a plea for attention. "Notice me!", they cry.

Well I've got no issue with people disliking something, but exaggerating to a point where it's ridiculously negative is annoying.

The game is a monumental technical achievement. You can hate the gameplay all you want, but this engine is mighty impressive.

I originally thought this looked kind of interesting, but it appears pretty shallow in this trailer.

Could be good, still

There is simply no other game that can match GTA V's scope and graphical fidelity at this kind of scale.

Comparing this to a one-dimensional game like Crysis is laughable, Slick

just go to teh Youtubes and watch some Unreal 4 engine demos. Now if 5 was using that, it'd be worth crowing about. Oh but wait, consoles can't handle that sort of work.
HA

I love Unreal Engine 4, but a game with GTA V's graphical and overall complexity using UE4 would probably run at half the speed, if that

The majority of the new graphics thrown in for first-person mode, look like they'd fit into Vice City's tech era, rather than modern GTA.
This is a pretty ridiculous comment.
GTA V is one of the only games I've seen use proper parallax mapping for surfaces and real time depth mapping for things like footprints and tire tracks.
Some of the texture detail up close is astounding. Others, not so much, sure.

But to say the majority of the graphical details are akin to Vice City is plain ridiculous.

Like I've said before, if any game is worth the money it's this one. Huge amount of content

@nin: Yeah, I did. Was pretty surprising!

It looks like it's ingame, and all the models and effects are the actual ones used in gameplay, but the animations are definitely tailored for the trailer.

Either way, this is going to be pretty awesome.

I've been pleasantly surprised by the performance. It's silky smooth with all options set to very high in 1080p, no MSAA, and only high res shadows enabled in advanced options.
The game is gorgeous.

Specs: gtx 970, 3570k, 16gb ram, SSD-hybrid drive
