Retail version is not coming out until March 2nd. You can get the Collector's Edition from Steam (should be available for the French market too)

Then why don't you lower the settings to the console ones? A GTX275 is sufficient for 1080p and max settings at 1080p with 30fps (better visuals with a simple GTX275. In my books, this is fine when it comes to Alan Wake's visuals/performace ratio)

This one, right? ;)

The ground needs a higher resolution texture. It's really low-res at its current form to be honest. Still, for an indie studio, it does look impressive

True.dat. It's not like Crysis that looked smooth even in 30fps, but it's like Dirt2 that looks smooth even at 40fps.

As Motorola and Pandamobile said, console versions run at 30fps (with the PS3 running at around 20fps in Mass Effect 3 demo. I think DigitalFoundry stated that)

Don't forget 3D (if you own 3D Vision). The 3D profile needs some polish but ME2 was lovely in 3D ;)

yeah, I was like "WTF" when I saw the limited graphics options. Obviously, the full version will have more

which resulted into Develop-Online editing their article. A friendly banter wouldn't have that result, would it? ;)

It also depends on everyone's perspective. Some might think it's friendly banter while others might not.

All in all, it was needless from Cliffy commenting on something like that, especially when he wasn't talking and joking with Markus in the last weeks or so.

I bet this is how PC gamers feel right now:

My guess is that next-gen consoles will come with 1080p-only games. Now if this is true, we are talking about a triple jump (keep in mind that most console games are sub-HD already) for current-gen games. If the games run at 60fps, then it will be four-times better that today's console games and that's without even featuring better textures, effects, etc. IMO, this is what we'll get with next-gen consoles.

I was reffering to L.A. Noire DX11. Not DX11 in general ;)

Did IGN break the embargo? There is an online review embargo in place, which will be lifted on February 16 2012 at 5pm CET

yeap. It's definitely a plus since the FOV in The Darkness II is really low

You could say that. Or like Voxelman said an advanced clone of Interstate

It's something unique and for that price, I can't see why someone would hesitate in getting it

Although I dislike Origin, I really don't mind after its latest upgrades. EA has fixed most of its issues (and that 'sending data' thing is not happening anymore). Plus it's now starting fine on my PC (whereas the previous version needed almost 5 minutes to start)

This doesn't mean that approve the Origin requirement for every triple-A game of theirs though

And after both BF3 and ME3, here comes Syndicate that will require it. Oh boy...

1689d ago 1 agree0 disagreeView comment

ironic isn't it? DICE patches = fix 5 things, break 10 other. It's been like that since BF2, lol
