""The program can't start because PhysXLoader.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix the problem. ""

game does a check for physX before the game starts, even though it wont be utilized through an ati card you still need to have it installed.

yeah graphics are awesomeon DX11 at Very High but lacks the firing / knifing combo like BFBC2 / COD and more you have to switch to the knife once you run out of ammo which is slow to swap and take lots of damage :P

other than that its pretty good at this point

Pro tip: I wish I had done this, but now I'm too far ahead to go back 2-3 chapters for this...

Get the Hellsing crossbow type gun ASAP! As soon as you find one, (I think 3rd chapter?) it's the most important gun in the game imo. I wish I had it for the stupid Library, but I can't get it without going too far back :(

Bet there is a console command that could remedy that.

I have no idea how, but I started a second play through and found a tesla gun very close to the beginning (like 1-2 hours in). Have to charge it up like the flashlight but it 1-hits almost everything, and you can melee with it like a taser. Maybe someone can shed some like on this?

Where are you guys finding these weapons? I just passed Dead City and haven't found any other than the shotties and pistols.
Forgot how good this game looks with a decent machine, last time through was on my old setup.
