how many disc did you had in the box?

I only had one, but it says Disc 1 on the DVD, am I missing Disc 2?

why would they print Disc 1 when there is only one disc

Freaking slow ass GoGamer. I emailed them about my order and they said they just got them in stock and they should be shipping out today.

Glad I'm not in a huge hurry to play this.

Got the game just now. Tried installing it and it stopped right at the 4th data rar, checked the disc, it has a huge defect on it, almost like a scratch but much wider.... No I have to ****ing return it to the gamestop where I bought it... what a waste of time

I just played through about 2 hours non-stop. Damn, this game is good! And pretty too.

Only 1 disc in my box too.

FSAA does work on most surfaces btw simply using CP in winXP 175.16

Only played like 5 min.. All looks nice and well done so far.

Just installed it, so far it's definitely impressive, love the combat set up, still getting used to the tactics part of it, but running and gunning is working also

I guess I'll be the first with screenies. I havn't had a chance to get past the first scene. First, a little comparison.

No AA, all settings max


2x2 SSAA, all settings max


SSAA cleans the image up nicely and, oddly enough has the added benefit of enhancing some of the bloom effects. Notice the light on the wall without AA and with it. Here's a few more for good measure.

For what its worth, their copy protection seems to have worked.

People are buying the game in stores and pre-orders are being shipped and it doesn't appear to be available on any download sites. Not being leaked before release will help sales tremendously.

Well done Bioware.

Some more feedback! The lack of load times and great performance is making me a very happy camper! I'm enjoying the game as much as I did when I played it on the 360.
