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
) experienced so far.
