When I first tried the demo I was utterly filled the feeling of meh, played my 30 minutes tossed it and forgot about it. Then I seen all the high ratings it was getting and felt disgusted. last night I was bored and decided to give it another whirl....I ended up staying up far to late. The game is awesome! it just doesn't seem so right away when your still learning them,mechanics and controls.

Now I can't wait for it ..bah.

I get the feeling it will wear out quickly... I'm still going to get it. What's up with all these new releases in Q1? SupCom 2, Mass Effect 2, Just Cause 2, Assassin's Creed 2. Any other sequels I should know about?  :D
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

I AM BOLO SANTOSI


Well, the game is out. I'm gonna try it.

EDIT: Just doing a bit of intro mission stuff. It's very nice.
I'm pretty stoked at how well this game performs, as in it doesn't crash left and right. It looks and feels extremely well polished.
Sometimes I feel like I just don't see many games like this anymore.
I'd like to step up my graphics card but I'm waiting for those new Fermi cards from Nvidia to come out. Figure it'll drop all the current high end cards down in price.
Or maybe I'll get a Fermi for DX11. I dunno.

It really isn't bad though. I'm having a blast.

Did the demo have DX11 support? If not, then I guess I will have to buy it so I can have a game that uses the tech I paid for. :P

So, bought the game on Steam yesterday but it only unlocks here tomorrow, so I kinda did a dirty trick and used steam://install/gameid and it worked, the game preloaded :D

But I still couldn't play it after preloading, so I kinda backed up the files and got a crack just to play it until tomorrow, then I'll revert the files to the original.

Has anyone been to the LOST island?

I approached this island with a 737 on the top-right corner of the map, clear skies and everything.

All of a sudden storm clouds pop out of nowhere, I notice a tall tower with smaller ones around it, the towers have something spherical on top of them, THUNDER STRIKES and I notice a bright light forming on top of the big tower and then a burst of energy fills the skies and KABLOOEY, MY PLANE IS GOING DOWN.

I jump out and use my parachute, whatever that tower is, I'm taking it down, nobody takes out my plane and goes unpunished! I approach the tower and it seems deserted at first, I grapple to it as I notice some upgrade and money bonuses, all of a sudden guys with V for Vendetta masks pop out and start shooting at me, while screaming "This is a war you cannot win", I barely escape their powerful weaponry.

Taking refuge in the jungle deep down, I decide to head for the beach and I come accross... a HATCH, and then I hear it, that monstruous sound, of something big and powerful lurking in the jungle, I ran to the beach and called the black market chopper to take me back to the mainland  :o

I know I'm not the first, I was asking if anyone here had been there. I found it by accident, then found the videos  8)

If anything, I need to play this game just for that.

Buy...maybe not. Maybe rent.

How do you rent a Steam-requiring game?

Unless it's for consoles  ;)

Never seen lost nor do I plan to, so I probably wont understand any of it.

I however still cannot get over how fun this game is, it surprising considering how much the first one sucked. Its also the first game in awhile where the graphics really impress me.

Fail.

I did laugh pretty good though.
