Wow read this article

"When 4A needed another dev kit, or high-end PC, or whatever, someone from 4A had to fly to the States and sneak it back to the Ukraine in a backpack lest it be "seized" at the border by thieving customs officials."

"There were no outlets in the Ukraine, and our only option was to pack a truck in Poland and try to find an "expediter" to help bribe its way down to Kiev."

"I truly enjoyed Far Cry 3, which deserved its great reviews. But how many times did Ubisoft Montreal lose power for hours or days during development?"

"All developers have deadlines, but I know of few that had to bring in construction generators to be able to work the weekend before final submission because an extra day meant missing shelf dates by weeks."

"Then 4A works in their parkas and struggles to keep their fingers warm in temperatures well below freezing."

"The only thing for which 4A is getting more credit than I think they deserve is the creativity behind the ever frightening, dark, post apocalyptic environment of the game. I've been in Kiev to visit the team, so I know they just stepped outside for reference."

"If 4A had been given a more competitive budget, in a saner environment, hadn't wasted a year-plus chasing the irrational requirement of THQ's original producers to fit multiplayer and co-op into the same deadline and budget(!), hadn't had to deal with the transition to a new publisher in the crucial few months before final, what could 4A have created?"

Didn't have any issues either. I run Nvidia though.
The FOV doesn't even bother me. Glad the option to increase it is there now though and I will probably fiddle with it soon. Planning another playthrough maybe sometime next week. Fantastic game.

Hey guys how hot does your cards get when running this game at max with SSAA at 2X? SSAA seems to kill my performance.

EVGA Gtx 670 FTW 2GB
320.14 Nvidia drivers.
62C without SSAA at like 85fps
SITH  +   923d ago
All settings at max configured with GeForce Experience

I7-3960x water cooled
EVGA GTX 690 4GB Like a boss edition
320.14 beta Nvidia driver
82c 120FPS with fluctuations to 60FPS.
