Got hammered by reviews because it was so buggy...but it played perfectly for me and I loved it. I guess different PC configurations are to blame and I've got horseshoes up my ass
Driz...definitely get back into the game with the new patch...it works perfectly for me and everyone else I play with.
No, it wasnt just my hardware. I read on forums a TON of people were having problems with it. It was terrible. people weretalking about boycotting hte expansions and even making comics about all the problems in teh game
BTW, i was googling for the comics site and i found this one from new zealand, where they have major bandwidth caps on their braodband. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y30/nrg_wp/comic3.jpg
Edit: this competition isnt good for anyone. nvidia, ati and MS are still making money off of consoles. They dont need pc gaming to stay alive, they are only compteting with themselves. Game designers arent worried about consoles because they develop games for both pc and console. They just support the system that makes them the most money. PC gaming will die not becuase it is inferior but because it isnt as profitable for developers. The only losers here are us.
