And I just wanted to say, "I consider myself a hardcore, casual gamer"??  WTF is a 'hardcore, casual' gamer? :?:

I thought I explained it well enough, but I admit, it doesn't make too much sense.. Let me try again....

I figure casual gamers, play once in a while, don't usually keep up(IE: purchase) on the top technology, don't purchase too often, and play casually, ie, they don't take gaming too seriously.

Hardcore gamers are the opposite.....

I am right in the middle.

I do keep up with the latest technology. I have two higher end systems:
AMD Dual Core 4200+, 1GB RAM, 7800GT, 900GB RAID array and 600GB Raid Array
AMD 3800+. 1GB RAM, 7800GTX, approx 600GB in space
Plus I have 2 more systems, and all the current consoles, including the 360.
I usually buy/pre-order a lot of games

That is the hardcore part.

The casual part is:
I don't play regularly and in long spans of hours.
I don't take the gaming too seriously
I don't finish a lot of games
Sometimes, I don't even open a game for months on end.

So that's why I call myself hardcore, casual...

better? smile

I wonder why the previewer was playing the game in 4:3 mode on a widescreen monitor. I thought this game was going to have native widescreen support on the PC and yet the guy had black bars on the sides.  If the PC doesn't come out with WS support as promised, I'll be very disappointed.

Look again, it is widescreen. The bars were the speakers/edge of the screen.

And the guy is Punisher.

My God... you may be right!!!

Those crazy bastards finally did it!

(ok that last comment doesn't really fit the situation)

Whew... that's a relief. At first glance it sure looked like a 4:3 image displayed on a 16:9 screen. Ok, I am officially 100% psyched for this game again.

Thanks in advance.

I was searching for them too.  They're not listed under Features and they aren't linked on the game-specific pages.

Did they fall off the internet?
