So there is a way on steam to see how long you have been playing a game? I'd like to see how much time I have in Metro. God this game is so close and yet so frustrating. I loved the creepy library, but then I had to spend most of my time there running like hell from monsters I couldn't kill. Anyway, I'm sure I'm going to go well over the 10-12 hrs everyone says is the game length.

Another cool find CeeKay. Too bad they always seem just over the horizon like that cool medieval one. I just hope I don't lose track of them.

alright, CoP officially runs nice and smooth... decided to start playing ruthless and gunned down those Stalkers you first run into with headshots to the back of the head.  too bad most of their equipment was crap and unsellable.
You can get the stuff repaired and sell it for a small profit, but it is a fair amount of effort for slight gain.

yeah, spend a few hundred to make a hundred.
No, that would be losing money. When I played the cost of repair was less than what I could sell the stuff for, just not very much less.

Not read this thread yet. Bought the game Yesterday. Waiting till I finish up Metro 2033 first. Hope this one is fun. And it will be on my new system too. Stalker was on my old one with a 6800GT. Had to turn lighting down or off back then.

For me, just after the child level in Metro and having finishe SCOP. Metro C and barely hanging on to that: SCOP A+. SCOP made me mad when it was finished because I wanted the story to continue and there to be new places to explore.  Very few games do that to me.

I think I finally hit one of those annoying fights that cause a lot of re-loads.  It's above ground with Bourbon and you get rushed with a bunch of beasties and one of those winged things.  My machine gun is pretty much out of ammo (I must be finding lots of ammo for a gun I don't have yet) and the shottie is way underpowered against these guys.

That said the game sure looks purty in DX11.

You ain't seen nothing yet.   icon_biggrin

Eh? Metro it totally worth full price.

I got it for $32 at gogamer and I think it's just barely worth that. I was expecting the underground tunnel and secret lab vibe of the stalker games and it's not that.Plus, although 90% of the time the checkpoints are spaced fine, the 10% they are not drive me insane.

Surprisingly I've been finding checkpoint save games less and less annoying in action games.

So you haven't found it annoying in Metro 2033? Just breezing through all the sections are you? Not having to repeat some areas a dozen times or so? Then you are much better at it than I.
531  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mafia II on: March 31, 2010, 03:38:05 PM
Oh crap! Just read the preview and these idiots are still doing checkpoints and not save anywhere. Is there some technical reason for this or do they just hate me? And Metro 2033 has me frequently pounding the desk in frustration with their checkpoints. Sigh....I will still get Mafia 2 as the first game is one of my favorites of all time, but come on, every game should have save anywhere.

Thanks guys. Still not sure if I am going to jump yet.

If I were you knowing what I know now, if there is any other game out there that interests you, I would get that first. And I was so psyched for this game. Checkpoints and a high difficulty level just makes me repeat stuff over and over. And it's so scripted that even 4-5 hrs into the game I'm still mostly following a npc's lead and seldom doing any exploring on my own.

One of those poor grunts who have and older card, which has been quite good uptil now.

So, are the keys reprogrammable, or are you stuck with wasd?

Would this run on a 8600 Gt OC Top?

Or as usual, am I S.O.L. ?


I think you could run it on DX 9. on a lesser quality setting.

Arrrgh. I'm on level 4-war. trying to get past the point where there are two guys on a balcony-one behind a machine gun, numerous sandbags and many enemies behind them. Dieing and reloading over and over.
534  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Metro 2033 on: March 29, 2010, 05:27:07 PM
Not a bunch of posts so I wonder if people are as unhappy with this as I am. It's really hard in spots, the performance likes to tank when enimies appear-I guess I have to turn down some quality settings, and checkpoint saves have indeed caused me to repeat some stuff over and over. Mainly, hey devs, mind if I play your game for a bit? Too many scripted events where I just have to follow someone elses lead for the whole scene.

This lack of save anywhere is starting to piss me off now. Im having to clear out a large area full of folk with automatic rifles and snipers. Not being able to save when I've killed a bunch of them and then dying and starting over pisses me off to no end. I thought Devs had learned their lesson by now?

"So, What do you think of the new boss?" Just great getting to hear that conversation abouty 12 times. Here is where missing save anywhere is a pain. And no, it does not save your progress on each exit. It goes back to the last point you got the disc in the lower left corner.

Good point about needing a ton of boxes or a ton of swapping to test all the vc's. I understand, and did not say it would be easy, just that the way it is is annoying.

I know how you feel Greg, the 8800 GTX isn't all that old either (At least, it doesn't feel that way, I can still play new games that I care about in 1920x1200 and that's good enough for now), and it'd be nice to see hardware sites (I'm looking at you HardOCP) compare previous gen hardware against current gen hardware for those of us who are a bit more conservative in our upgrades...

Funny, that's my card and I can still play most games in 1680x1050. I knocked Metro down to 1280 though. And yes Hardocp is a major offender. Again, the Steam data shows the vast majority of cards out there are older.
538  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Metro 2033 on: March 23, 2010, 07:03:28 PM
It bumms me out that my card is old enough that it is no longer included in any bench marks. Bleah. I can play around with settings and figure out what works but they seem to drop cards quick. I wish they would look at Steam or something and see what cards most people play on. Then again, these hot hardware sites maybe figure only graphic whores who update every 6 months look at the hardware sites.

I've not read this whole thread so maybe it was explained in it..don't really care...but I bought the game in the store..I have the DVD disc..yet when I go to install it is installing through STEAM and is downloading it..WTF?? This will take a bit. I have the dvd..wth.

They use steam for the DRM. it's on the box but not that obvious.  You have to have steam and steam authenticates your copy every time you start the game. Not sure if there is an offline mode or not. I wonder if this method has been cracked. Probably because afaik there is no foolproof drm.

Will this work on Vista 64 bit? Amazon has it for $10.84. I had a lot of interest in this when it was released but all the reported bugs scared me off.
543  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Metro 2033 on: March 22, 2010, 02:41:51 PM
I don't know, I'm a bit underwhelmed so far. Stalker had much more atmosphere imho. I still kinda feel like a visitor watching stuff. However, I'm still early and finaly got to the first section where I'm by myself-on the surface. Hoping it grows on me. I don't dislike it, I'm just not as into it as I thought I would be.

Crap! gogamer cancelled my preorder. Oh wait, that turns out to be good. How the hell do they have a preorder sale for $42.95 and then when the game hits the street it goes on sale for $35.42. That's nuts. Plus, I wanted to get Dead Space and now I can on the same order. No problem getting the imported edition of Dead Space, is there? In this case having my updated cc not matching the exp date they have on file will save me 7 bucks but I will have to wait a day longer. Please keep your reports on Metro coming and I will live vicareously until the mailman comes.

$60 for me = no buy. I'd be willing to try and live with the DRM. However, although I enjoyed the first game, I never got past the 9th mission(I think) where they send dozens of guards after you and you have to have the twitch skillz to kill them all icon_cry
549  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age is looking good! on: March 10, 2010, 09:35:00 PM
Did they ever fix the Shale bug? Where the game decided to stop recognising all your DLC? I finished the game and never went back largely because of that issue.

DRM or no, I'm not up for $60 a game.

Might want to start getting used to the idea as it seems some brand new AAA titles on the PC are launching at that price now a days.  Once we get conditioned to it it will be the norm.  At least PC games go on sale and drop in price fairly quickly.  Almost all consloe games laucnh at that price and see mto stay there for quite awhile.  At  les the good ones anyhow and anything with Call of Duty in the title.  Hell iwaited for price drop on COD:WAW for PC for what seemed like a year.

Well then this is apparently the price point that will break me. Outside of the rare occasional game that really hits my sweet spot I will just wait for the price drop. Once I get in the cycle there will be a steady flow of cheaper stuff that I haven't played yet. I never really liked $49.95 and would usually wait for those to drop as well.
552  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Ubisoft unveils new copy protection system: on: March 03, 2010, 03:58:23 PM
Well-cracked without saves is not exactly cracked. Most people won't play it straight through or leave it active on their rig til they finish. At least I don't think enough would to affect opening month sales. But I could easily be wrong.

I may still get it, but unfortunately it is not save anywhere but checkpoint driven.Player may have to repeat hard areas a few times.
556  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Project Offset new video on: February 19, 2010, 05:24:26 PM
Darn, broken link. They have been working on this game for over 5 years and have started over twice I think, once for sure. As far as I know they have never even said what the game is about. I will be interested when/if it ever see's the light of day.
557  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Is Far Cry considered a hard game? on: February 19, 2010, 04:49:57 PM
Funny, I first thought of FC2 and I was thinkling,no, not too tough. Far Cry on the other hand, was rather hard for me. I did die and reload a lot. Then, when it takes a twist 2/3rds or so into the game, it gets really hard. Some people found the last big set piece darn near impossible. I must have gotten lucky because I got through it okay.

Damn you CeeKay! This game is right in my wheelhouse and now I have to wait a year or so to play it. Seriously, nice find. I guess The Witcher was kind of 3rd person middle ages but outside of that not a lot out there. Looks like a lot of fun.

Try checking some of your regular places where you sell stuff, or if you use containers either in Soldiers Peak or modded ones in the camp (which is pretty dangerous IMO)

nope, I definitely did not sell it or store it someplace since it was Stens main weapon (you cannot sell or store something that is equipped anyways) so I just used the Star Fang script, the rune script (to replace the 3 that were in the sword) and the enchantment script to get things back to normal.

Yeah it's a known bug. All of a sudden the game forgets the DLC stuff you did. I had Wardens Keep disappear from the map and then the guy that gives you the quest showed up with the quest again at my campsite. Also I could no longer talk to Shale as well. Rather irritating and still no official fix on the horizon.
560  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age is looking good! on: December 25, 2009, 06:50:39 PM
I finished this yesterday. Not sure how I feel about it. I mean it was fun, but I guess I just keep getting "epic" thrown at me and I don't think it's that at all. Here's my +'s and -'s for what ever it's worth.
Spoiler for Hiden:
decent story and it's nice to see how some of your choices affected things. Cool to level up and get access to new powers, get strong enough to beat the revenants and things like that-although I have a caveat.  decent interface. Love the sound and music in the game. Okay, i did like the game and I am not really pickey, the object is just to have fun, but for some reason my -'s are longer. I played 80+ hrs and really feel like I did very little. 4 areas. No way is this an explore game. No grand vistas or creepy dungeons. Just little boxy rooms to fight in. Yes you make big decisions that change some things, but most of those are crammed in at the end. Not all, but most. Combat its's self. Even with pause, things happen so fast it's hard to appriciate your guys individual actions and powers. No way is this a loot game either. Very few cool weapons armor or runes to find. evrything I used I found by half way through or later. Buggy game for me. I got the Shale bug. Flemmith never showed up for me to do Morigans quest, even though I got the quest. And while not a bug, the fact that marking a quest as active put markers on your map for some quests but nothing for others was just annoying.  So I do really want to find out what the hell Morrigan wanted that baby for I'm not chomping at the bit for it to come out.
