So seriously, given the resolution, how are they going to make a proper sequel?

well, the Mafia is kinda big, so it could involve other families....

By looking at the screens, there are a few clues in there to the timeframe being in the mid-1940s rather than the '30s. Who knows how that will tie-in to the first one...if at all.

They actually announced that the game is set in the late 40s/early 50s. 

Excellent. Maybe there only needs to be a very loose tie-in. I can see it working. YAY!!

yah, the cars are definitely an later model.

This is very exciting news, though hopefully console versions won't suck like they did for the first one.  The setting, the story, the music...it was all good for the first one (except that damn racing level).

if they do a Wii version, and it matches the greatness of the Godfather then I will love them forever.

bah!  I wish they had used better holders for the DVD's.  I've opened up all 4 seasons and 7 of the discs got loose at some point and got scratched up  mad  Now I'm debating which would be easier, having them taken back or paying a couple of bucks for each one to be resurfaced.

If you had them shipped and haven't opened them yet you may want to check them even if it doesn't sound like anythings loose on the inside.  Only one of the cases made a rattling sound but all 4 had at least 1 DVD loose.

Well, I think you guys are wrong.  The tech as it stands now isn't good enough, yes.  But there are a shitload of people working on ways to make it more viable, and I'll bet $5 right now that downloadable, on-demand programming trumps Blu-Ray and HD before either of those formats peel away half of the marketshare that DVD currently holds.

You think studios are going to sell their movies for $5 and that the DRM development costs will be covered in that price?  The movie studios are more Nazi like in their DRM practices than the record labels are.  It's THE reason the majority of them back Blu-Ray.

I'd be stoked if you were right though.  It'd make me actually buy movies again slywink

I'll bet $2 that movie studios will not base their pricing on people's bets. slywink

For reference, I finished the PC demo just now.  My specs are Core 2 Duo 6600 (2.4), 8800 GTS (640 MB), 2 GB RAM.  I ran the demo at 1280x1024 with 16 x AF and 4 x AA with everything set to high, except DX10, since I am on XP still.  Performance was smooth as silk the whole time.

EDIT:  I am using the nVidia drivers released today as well.

did you force the AA settings through the control panel?

Yeah I forced them on through the nVidia control panel.  I could tell it was on from checking the jaggies on a screen before / after. 

OK, so I forced 16x AF and 16xQ AA with no noticeable difference (maybe things were a bit less jaggie but with no saving in the demo and no way to skip the cutscenes it's hard to compare easily).  I'm also using Steam to launch it, so things might not be applying right.

I am also using it on Steam and unless I am crazy  retard it def was applied.

I compared what I was seeing with the screenshots on Tweakguides and I definitely was seeing what the guy had posted, so it must have been working as it was supposed to.

Oh man I was just talking to a friend of mine and he says, "Odd that AA was disabled."  Maybe I am crazy.

well, reading a bit more on it, it sounds like it's there but somethings not letting it run 100%.  I know Bloom screws with AA, so maybe they have some setting for that which hasn't been found yet.
