  1. No disagreement here.

    My only regrets are…

    1. I can’t find a limited edition PC copy anywhere
    2. I can’t afford a PC that can handle it respectably. I’d buy the game anyway to have it for later.

    I’m playing it on my brother’s 360 in the meantime.

    Aside, PC video cards are an absurd market right now. Even the $600 ones aren’t perfect for current games.

    Finally, what was your Astra contact name again?

  2. I’m playing it at highest quality 1280×1024 on a $180 8600 GTS without a hitch. Though, it might have something to do with the Core 2 Quad Q6600 in my socket.

    I’m assuming you’ve heard the shit about DirectX 10.1, how every card on shelves today won’t be compatible with its changes? Blasphemy.

  3. I’m not sure there are limited edition PC copies, honestly. I played it on the 360, but I downloaded the PC version and might try that for my next runthrough.

    I think my Astra contact name is Jairus.

  4. I think the whole DX 10.1 thing is overblown. I don’t think the new shaders are going to be so appealing to developers that they’ll write games that require new cards to play.

  5. Hehe. Problem is that I splurged on a 1920×1200 24″ Dell 2407. It’s completely worth it though. Oddly, with the exception of Oblivion (which never ran fast anyway), my existing games didn’t take much of a framerate hit jumping to that resolution from 1280×1024. P4 3.0 GHz, X800GL, 2 GB RAM. Good lord HL2 is still gorgeous.

  6. I was surprised that new games like Bioshock and Lost Planet didn’t have backwards compatibility already. That’s gotta be a major dent in their potential market. I’m not fucking upgrading JUST to play two new games. I’ll have to get back to them in a couple of years.

  7. Sorry. Bioshock and Lost Planet will not even run with my X800 because it only has “Shaders 2.0” as opposed to “Shaders 3.0,” also known as DirectX 9.0c I believe.
