Stupid question......
In the manual it says something about about "special NVidia features" if you are running an nVidia graphics card. Is this just marketing or are there actually "special NVidia features" that are enabled if you have the right card??

Another stupid question. I don't see any benefit of the Save Game option in the game menu.. why would they include it? The only "saving" I've seen occurs when you approach a rebirth fountain and it's not like you could LOAD a game, so why this manual save?

so you can save your characters progress, items and quests at anytime, even though you restart at the last fountain you reached.

Just FYI:

The forcesingleproccessormode setting in the games settings file (the one in your my documents folder) gets reset to false after patching the game.

You might want to re-check your settings file after patching up.

ttfn.

Ok I made it to lvl 9 and on my way to see the Oracle. This game is downright boring. All I'm doing is hacking stuff. I'm an expert weapon switcher though and it pays in some situations when I need to pick off a few before rushing in to an enemy group.

There's not much story so far, maybe that's why it's boring. They say this could take 40 hours to complete. I'll be in a coma before then.

FYI, the game is downright beautiful though. It sounds great and X-fi with SVM and Crystallizer on.

I'll be taking this back for Prey.

Yeah... You did know thats how the game is right? Its identical to diablo as in theres nothing but Hack-n-Slash gameplay with a story layed out in the background to give you a reason... but thats about it.

I don't think anyone in this thread claimed otherwise... so if your disappointed in the game then its your own fault for believing it would be something else...

I believed it would be a good game to raise the bar in this genre. I'm not disappointed in it. It's been good to spend the weekend with it, but that's about it.

here here, I stopped playing Oblivion because I had no interest in the crappy
quests, I mean "help me find my lost potatoes in XYZ cave" is just laughable and the main quest is over in less than 8 hours.

It also runs like **** and has the worst leveling system in recent history.

Give me a break - I'll be using it as a coffee coaster from now on.

As for the Hack n Slash in TQ - like Magus says it does'nt pretend to be anything it isnt which is why I love it so. Its also VERY similar to NWN in terms of combat system (thats just a point and click hack n slash too) and im the worlds biggest NWN fan.

each to there own, I'll take TQ's 40+ hours of amazing enviroments and enjoyable story over Prey's <6 hours of generic action.
