I'm getting F.E.A.R without hesitation, Quake 4 I'll await opinions on, although I've been wanting a game thats just "fun" for a while.

Eh, I can play for an hour or so and THEN go. That'll give me a nice break to let it all sink in and form some early opinions. Now, only 3 hours and 45 minutes...

Went to Best Buy, picked up F.E.A.R. DVD off the shelf. Asked about Quake 4 and a kid went in the back and grabbed me one of the only 4 copies availible. Now I've developed a sudden sickness and need to *cough* leave work early

Nope, its not on the cd. Expect they'll release a linux client availible to download.

After havieng 65$ worth of best buy gift cards, and preorderd from them. they told me they *WONT* sell me a copy untill the 20th, as they put it "Quake 4's REAL release date". So i had to go to gamestop to buy my copy. Wow im pissed.

However, the mutliplayer CTF is pritty fun with a 150ms ping lag isnt that bad a bit chopy but not bad. Good preformance at 1600x1200 4xaa HQ

Anyone know if there are linux server binarys out? The servers name 'claim' to be linux but people like to BS about it to lure gamers into their ****ty windows boxes heh.

I luv it.....no gameplay complaints so far. Hell, its everything an upgraded Quake should be. I have no idea what PCGamer was complaining about its all I was hoping for....and a total blast to play


I am disappointed that with OpenAL enabled(latest drvs, Aud2 ZS) the game fails to start. Its has to be set to "default". I'm seriously considering giving the X-Fi another go...God forbid, I can't run the lastest enhancements ..hehehehe
And My desktop gamma is a mess after exiting the Q4, it seems to keep the game settings.

Okay, so here is my $0.02

My setup:

P4 2.4C (Northwood) at 2.8 (was 3.0 but upgrading to 2GB RAM I had to cut back on the speed some to stablize it)
865 based board
6800 GT (AGP) at 390/1.05
2GB (4*512) Corsair VS PC 3200
SB Live Value
74GB Raptor
WinXP SP2
81.84v2 XG drivers
Dell 2005FPW

Well, I had to tweak the .cfg settings to get native res with my monitor, but after that I used the following in game settings:

Textures: High
Everything else on/max
AA*2 AF*4
V-synch on

With all that, my gameplay is SMOOTH. Even the outside at the very beggining, I noticed no pause/stutter. Only played through the first level, but no slowdown with combat that I noticed. Absolutley STUNNING visuals. Runs right in the Q2 vein of gameplay. In MY opinion, runs better than D3 (then again I also have added 1GB more RAM since then so who knows).

Anywho, back to playing!!!

Q3 used to do that. Don't remember if a patch fixed it or new drivers.

Is it true that there is reloading? I hate the idea that I have to reload in a Quake game. I know its to add realism but its quake!
