so glad that Capcom striped out Live and replaced it with Steam instead.

a lot of companies refuse to use LIVE on PC, which is a good thing.

Epic refused LIVE in UT3, seems MS had something to say about GoW and forced Epic to leave it in. Since MS does need some decent game to try to push this crap upon players. Shadowrun was a joke, Kane and Lynch well i don't think i need to say anything about that game. Halo 2 another joke.

Infinity Ward also refused to use LIVE.

I wish that this trend continues, LIVE on PC simply is not a good thing. MS simply sees the PC Gamer as another source of money, charging for LIVE, if LIVE goes on larger scale, I can bet they will start charging for mods later on.
They try to get away with charging money for something thats been free for about 10 years, don't offer any extra services.

just played LP, and i must say its not bad. i didnt know how i would adapt to a third person shooter, but i'm starting to get used to it.

the game runs and looks great. im running it @ 1600x1200 16xCSAA 16xAF, and max ingame settings.

i didnt think it would run as good as it does because i only scored 60 fps snow: and 43fps cave: but im in a cave right now and it never drops below 50-60fps even with a ton of stuff going on. sofar i would have to give this game a 7/10, sofar

I would advise that you do. I have both LP and Gears and both imo kick some serious butt. Overall I like Gears a bit better than LP.

im just worried about how it will run. UE3 and SLi arent to friendly. both MOH Airborne, and UT3 dont run all that great for me. MOHA stutters, and UT3 had big frame rate drops
