I hope so. It should. I think it should be in fantasy based RPGs even. But it only works if it also has that awesome clip ejecting sound.

In Half Life 3, you can choose the color of the suit G-Man wears and also how many M1 rifles he has slung on his back. In the DLC, you can choose the color of Alyx's bra.

Is there a way to optimize PhysX performance? I have a Core i7 980X at 4GHz with three overclocked GTX 480s. The benchmark shows less than 60 FPS when I have PhysX on high. With PhysX on medium it's close to 80. With it off it's close to 200. PhysX kills performance in the game even with nVidia cards.

..and thats why I always disable Physx. It will make no further consideration in my future GPU purchases. Havok can do the same thing using multicore CPUs. Physx is nothing more than a marketing ploy. Nvidia, if you can't give it to me without halving (or more) the performance... don't bother. Devs should just boycott it and refuse to use it.

I'm on Chapter 11 now, and have 18 hours of playtime so far according to steam. That seems pretty good since I've not spent all that much time exploring, etc.

Performance is great, running with everything maxed on my system with only a 9600GT for Physx, but then again I'm fine with frames in the 40's.

That issue I mentioned earlier where the game would CTD after picking up a playboy resolved its self. On my third playboy it CTD however steam poped up that time indicating it was installing files. After that the issue was gone.

I hope they come out with a ton of DLC, cuz I would really like to spend more time seeing more of the city, etc. Seems like the city is under utilized, but with a game world this large and detailed I'd have no problem roaming the same streets over and over on new missions.

I just finished the game. One thing I didn't like about

the ending, was Joe's eventual fate.

It was expected though. I hope future DLC sheds more light on this.

This was a great game, even though the beginning chapters were pretty boring and slow. One thing I didn't like was Vito's persona. For example,

you would've thought that his mother's death would've really hit him hard, but her death didn't seem to upset him that much. I blame that on Vito's actor; not a very good one. Tommy Angelo ftw.

Lol, maybe Mafia 2 DID suck, then. Your list of finished games is pretty sad.
