By retail I suppose you mean the latest available driver at the time when they duplicated the discs. I can't imagine never updating a video driver, especially if it's an 8800.Originally posted by: Regs
First game I actually had to update my video drivers for. I used the retail drivers for my 8800 and they caused screen flickering and choppiness. That's if of course I didn't BSOD.
I thought it was a very good game. Not great, but it just had one of those atmospheres and gun play to keep me having fun.
this time i am guessing 20 hours maxOriginally posted by: Azn
I don't think it's that long. Probably 25-30 hours. I finished it yesterday. The boss was so easy to beat if you have weapons to max. This game is much slower paced though.Originally posted by: spidey07
I put a good 24+ hours into it the first time. Actual playing time? 40 hours.Originally posted by: KeithTalent
I really enjoyed the demo, but I have two many other things to hold my attention right now. I think I will pick it up when it gets to $20ish. How long does it take to finish?
that is not what i asked ... WHY do you think Ryan is dead?Originally posted by: Azn
Slaves obey free man chooses. I obeyed to kill him. So yeah he's dead and I'm a slave.
You must've raced through the game. Did you explore every nook and cranny? Did you max out your research?i think i put a lot more time into a game i like then the average FPSer as i only play it once - i finished BS over a weekend
I tend to agree and I think Ryan will be back in the sequel.that is not what i asked ... WHY do you think Ryan is dead?
-You have access to his resurrection chambers also
you really think your daddy - creator of that world - is that stupid to just accept death at your hands?
-Ryan is using his son - you - to kill Atlas
i do also ... in a game i like. Since i lost immersion, i just didn't care about BS anymore. i got all the plot elements, PDAs, quests ... enough to criticize the hell out of it and not enjoy it very much. *Parts* of it were ok but i felt it ripped off every successful game that proceeded it ... and pissed on the memory of System Shock/2 ... how DARE people criticize DE-IW [now]. :|Originally posted by: BFG10K
Yeah, if you explore every nook and cranny it takes much longer than a weekend.
One of things I did like was exploring all the optional side areas and getting rewarded with goodies and/or extra plot elements. :thumbsup:
