Love this game, but haven't played it in a long time. I could never get passed the first Big Daddy and I got frustrated!

I think the Big Daddies are almost too hard early in the game because your weapons are so underpowered at that point. Of course, the first time I fought a Big Daddy I think I had accidentally toggled off auto-run so I was casually walking around getting pounded into walls because I couldn't get out of the way.

yea, the first couple times are tough. When you are fighting him at the docks, i think its the second time or third time, i brought another big daddy over from literally the other side of the map and made them duke it out, casually throwing RPGs in between them...

Well, I got this game to work by Uninstalling MS 2005 C++ redist and then reinstalling it. I reinstalled it many times in the past but never uinstalled it. Then to get sound to work I had to set PreCache to false in the default ini.

Now I'm playing in DX10. When I force AA in control panel I get floating shadows. Will AA work with dx10?

Finally have this game working well through the sweat of my brow in all it's 1080p surround sound glory.

I have to say disabling vita chambers makes this a whole new game! I finally fought a Big Daddy and beat him fair and square not the cheap way by respawning in the vita until he wears down.

This is certainly the best single player game in years.

The sequel will be pretty much an expansion pack, I would assume... that's how console games do these things now-a-days, release an all new game for full price that would be considered an expansion on PC.

I still recommend playing on hard. Easy and medium are too easy. Killing big daddies with a wrench and no Vita chamber visits.
