In F.E.A.R., you are the newest member of the military's elite First Encounter Assault Recon team, tasked with investigating, and dealing with, paranormal threats. You're in for a heck of a first day on the job, too, because you and your team are sent in after Paxton Fettel, a rogue officer, who takes command of a battalion of elite, cloned soldiers and sets them loose in the confines of a city. Yet that's but the tip of the iceberg in terms of the plot. What made Fettel go insane? What are they trying to accomplish? And what the heck is up with that freaky, ghostly little girl who keeps cropping up in the corner of your eye? The answers to all these questions are, hopefully, almost here.

Well, since we'll be getting a thread sooner or later, I thought I should enter the dance first(Mods should change the name as they see fit or merge the thread). I came home a while ago, after paying a visit to my local games retailer. For once, we got a game on it's release date, or in this case, a bit early too. Installed just now and started it up. Boy, this is one creepy game.

Also, regarding the benchmarks discussed in another thread, there doesn't seem to be any difference with the FPS experienced in the MP demo of the game. Perhaps it's limited in some way.

Anyway, back to the game, AA seems to work without problems now. Nothing weird(besides apparitions :p ) experienced so far.

Tony.

Walmart has them IN STOCK.

I went today, and tried to purchase one. I had it in my hand and went up to the counter. When I tried to buy it, the computer kept flagging saying "no sale" it would not go through. :(

I wonder though... I tried to purchase that in the electronics dept., If I walked all the way to the front, and tried to buy it there... I wonder if it would be any different...

Well, I went back and checked. If you change the mode to CTF, you only have 2 maps available, Facility and Streets, both 6-16 players. That would bring the total to 10.

No 16:10 ? That sucks. I think I'll skip this one. Sorry, but I haven't got a Apple CD 20" to play with two black areas on the screen.

Bah.

There's a workaround for us widescreen folk, gotta edit this file:

Code:

"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Monolith Productions\FEAR\settings.cfg"

"ScreenWidth" "1680"
"ScreenHeight" "1050"


Ok Lfctony we're all jealous now, so what you waiting on to upload some new screenies man? :D

Cool, thx :D

Btw, another question... Does it use StarForce or not ? I hate SF. It's such a pain in the ass, I simply hate having to put the damn cd/dvd in the player everytime I want to launch the game...
