Kasumi tomorrow for $7. Any of you gonna get her?

I'm starting on a new playthrough with my shiny new card, and would like to see some feedback if anyone get the new DLC. I'm all for a new character, but kind of skeptical.

Oh, and for Kasumi...

Just started to play this game and 10 hours in all i can say is WOW. I really didn't expect it to be that good. Shame about the flickering low res shadows and sloppy aliasing tho. Has anybody managed to get AA working via control panel or Nhancer ? theres probably a post somewhere in this thread that explains how but no doubt there is a lot of spoilers i dont wanna see so i havent read through.

Best SP game i have played this year tbh.

AA should work with a simple forcing in nHancer or even the normal nVidia control panel... nothing special. You might not know you forced it because it has a ton of shimmering metal and such even with AA forced... you need to supersample it to get rid of that.

I tried forcing AA with the new 257 drivers but the only thing i noticed was a drop in FPS that was with multisampling and supersampling. Might try with Nhancer later.

Have to say it doesn't spoil the game in any way as i soon got used to it but for screeny purposes, especially with those awesome character models, AA needs to be on.

I haven't played it with new drivers, maybe they screw up AA. You could try reverting.

saw the preview yesterday. I'm on my 2nd play through of ME2, this time with my ME1 character so I'll probably get this before I get to the end of the game.

This DLC pack is really good, if the Kasumi one's length and simpleness scared you away I would say give it a chance. It's relatively long, 5 missions and I have done 3 which took me about 2 hours I guess. It has some unique looking locations and a large hub world, which is different... the story is light on dialogue but cool on concept, a human and AI combined running amok, and there is this cool Matrix-like effect when the enemy shows up.

I am glad I got it.

Coolness. I've been saving all the DLC since Hammerhead for my next play through. Which will be soon I think. ::

F'ing amazing ending, one of the best moments in ME2 all together.

Now that I've gotten tired of BC2, I'm now gonna play ME2 again! ...Checking the DLC and the Bioware points and shudders violently because of GFWL points flashbacks...
