@Brian, lol I think I pooped a little when that happen, .

Agreed. One of the things I LOVE about this franchise. In the first I was doing drop kicks and floor slides all over the place. Was great in MP too. I like kickin over the tables and such in this one. But I wish it wasn't triggered with a key press ("E" when you're close to it). It would be better if you just had a kick control and used that at your leisure, however you wanted.

Heh.. The part where Alma grabs you isn't that scary. Probably because all the textures in that room was dead though, so I wasn't really immersed in the game at that point.

I usually steer clear of horror games( I cried when my brother played Resident evil 2 for PS1), but when I tried out the demo, I fell in love with it. day 1 purchase.

i just played the demo and they must have mad some serious changes to the engine. I had everything cranked up a 2560x1600. Bloody beautiful. This is the tru sucessor to FEAR not those fear expansions they made. I can't wait for this to come out.

Ya this game is pretty damn amazing looking so far. Will purchase for sure. What a great demo, love the fully working G15 plugin, thats a pretty rare thing to see!

My heart was pounding so hard I had to stop after the mech warrior part

The expansions were ok but not as good as the original. Truthfully I only played XP all the way through, I only played the demo of PM and it didn't really do anything for me.

I have all three and like them all, we all know EPs are usually a quick cash grab anyway.

Strange though the game doesn't scale 1920x1200 1:1 still end up with 2 black bars at the top and bottom.

I can't play this game at all. Even with the sensitivity set to the lowest, its still 2-3x faster than I would normally use (which is about 12cm/180). Also, no MOUSE4/5 support? That is pretty bad IMO. Even Quake3 has MOUSE4 support. This is 2009, most gamers have mice that have at least one side button, and a lot of us use them!
