It's a large world, but as I said earlier it somewhat lacks that "I can see everything!" feel of Fallout 3 or Gothic 3. It feels more enclosed, as there are large mountains and such that stop you from seeing forever.

This could just be the starting area, as I haven't progressed very far. I made a long, hard trip to the dock town and explored the city for a few hours.

Only if you have a good reason. Having a setup where you list the DRM on the store page, then leaving it off for a new release which has a particular brand of nasty DRM exclusive to the Steam release, is basically fraud, in my opinion.

Good on Steam for refunding me. Hope I can get a disc copy tomorrow.

The demo seems ok, it doesn't really tell much at all. The game runs without any problems 1920x1080 res all max settings. Do i have to force aa via cp? Cause i dont c aa in the game as an option and i do c jaggies.

As for story...what little of it was in the demo...wow...the dialogue is worse than the witcher lol.

it feels less polished than witcher..not sure if i wanna get the full ver of this game...i dont even know y its banned...fallout 3 lets u take little kids to slavery also buy/use/blow them up for fun...

It's not bad, the voice acting is a bit crap but ignoring that it's pretty good, combat is a bit brutal though.

Currently stuck at harbor town looking for a third gold bowl, and it's nowhere to be found. grrr.

nHancer forces AA in Vanguard compatability profile.

I've only played for a few hours so far, and this would be my main complaint. The world doesn't feel as big as in say Fallout 3 or Gothic 3 (or STALKER for that matter), but it does seem like there is a number of options of places to go and explore.

Funny thing is that i remember using a nifty program called Radlinker when i had my X800XT which more or less did the same thing as Nhancer so when i switched to my 4870 from a couple of years with the 8800 series card it was the first thing i looked for....only to discover that the bloody program had not been updated for years (actually since i got rid of the X800XT
