GameSpy PC review blurb:
Quote:
On the control front, it's not particularly fun to maneuver with a keyboard and mouse, and so the traditional PC gaming layout proves to be less functional than simply plugging in a gamepad. Purists might endure the process of missing quick turns and sliding dives, but anyone less interested in masochistic gameplay will be better served by plugging in an Xbox 360 controller.

They give you just enough time to get into it so maybe that pirate will buy it to finish the game. Unlikely that a pirate would buy it at all instead of waiting for a new cracked .exe but game companies can always hope.

Guys, no more talk about piracy. Keep on the topic of the game.

The gamepad was the thing that prevented me from completing the game on the 360. I returned it after playing 2 chapters. I really hope the mouse+keyboard feels more intuitive...

Im wondering as my PSU is just a Corsair 520W but it's a good PSU and I read on one review they say it's probably around a 700W PSU as it's way underspect

Annywon heard how much the new GTX 285 will take?
The GTX 280 takes about 230W under full load so what should I do.

Have a Q6600@ 3.4Ghz and then my 8800GT with 4GB ram so can my PSU take it you think?

Annyway really looking forward to this game, tested the demo on my PS3 and it seems very nice
Whatever is the bset option for you... the 285GTS is new n' stuff!

Pretty simple logic, really. I'd imagine so cause a theif isn't capable of much more than simple logic.
You would imagine wrong... some "thefts" require masterminds, just like some only need a few seconds when someone is not looking.

No need to narrow it down likethat because you aren't in favor of the guy's actions...

You guys... talk about "storm in a teacup". Especially "if" he's already ordered the game, nothing wrong with arring a version just for some "kicks".

It has finally been released on Steam for Europe at €49.95, compare it to the €35.49 price offered by play.com. Steam prices really suck for us.
