Cool.  After watching the Quick Look, I became really interested in this game,  I'll definitely give the demo a try.

Hope the performance is stable.

This wouldn't happen to support the 360 controller would it? >_>

#5 Posted by sirdesmond (1241 posts) -

Yes! This means I can figure out how well this will run on my system without having to pirate it or buy it! The Quick Look made this game look pretty great.

#6 Posted by mosdl (3228 posts) -

My Geforce GTX 570 ran the game at 1680x1050 at the ultra detail without any problems,stable framerate, etc.

Thanks for the heads up. Hard Reset and Serious Sam 3 scratch my FPS itch real good.

Just tried, works out of the box with the controller. The controls menu automatically shows a controller and you can reconfigure the bindings.

:o Yay, finally ^___^

Game crashes on startup for me.

Edit: Something went wrong with the download I think. I downloaded the game again and now it worked.

How does it feel?  Is the game fun?

@kishinfoulux: You are going to play a PC only shooter with a gamepad. Son, I am disappoint.

Enemies move really fast, so lots of strafing/backing up.

#14 Edited by Fudge91 (199 posts) -

Man that demo was short. But the gameplay & graphics were AWESOME. Ran it on high @ 1080p with a 5770 and i got an average FPS of 63 according to the benchmark. Really good results for such a low end GPU.

#15 Posted by ervonymous (1297 posts) -

Cool game, definitely picking it up at that price. Demo didn't like my crossfire config but it ran alright on a single 6870. The music is nuts.

I do so all the time - it`s only a disadvantage when playing online competitive. For singleplayer titles, I prefer being able to sit a little further away from the screen and relax on the couch. Can`t get comfortable with a keyboard in my lap.

Different people have different reasons for doing so, not a rare occurence anymore now that most games support a 360 pad out of the gate.

This.
I was a bit disapointed when the demo turned out to be shorter than the preview build. Luckily the game comes out next week.
And the cement mixer was adorable. Then I shot it.

I felt so bad for killing it; it didn't deserve to die ;__;

My OC GTX 460 ran it fine on ultra and 1080p. Short but pretty damn impressive demo.

Wow, talk about overkill. Way too much power for such a low resolution.

Pre-ordering the shit out of this.

#29 Posted by SomeJerk (3252 posts) -

Looks nice, moves great, but doesn't feel very hot at all. Feels like it was an extremely dull part of the game demonstrated, and I hope that's what it was. Felt like something that would have been right at home on a console - except for the graphics.

A last generation console (GC, PS2, Box1)

Going back to Human Revolution after those graphics, imagine what HR could have looked like if it was PC primary like BF3? Holy smokes. Still a great game, the design of HR helps it forward but, what could have been!

@mosdl: I'm sorry for your loss.

@SomeJerk: Wait, what? Are you saying the graphics are good or outdated?

Alright, I'll make sure to download it tomorrow. Thanks :)

Seems like he is saying it belongs on a last generation console. In which case, its safe to say his eye balls are up his ass.

@pornstorestiffi: His post seems to be lacking English. I can't say personally, but after watching the QL and TotalBiscuits video I'd say the game has excellent graphics.

#34 Posted by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

im pretty sure he meant the GAME belongs on last gen systems (i guess because its old school wave based like serious am/painkiller/etc),while  the graphics are this gen (he even says he wishes deus ex was pc only to have these kind of graphics)

#35 Posted by SomeJerk (3252 posts) -

I blame codeinephosfatehemihydrate tablets (legal use of those, trust me), I meant - if it wasn't for the graphics, the demo looked like something that would fit fine on a last generation console.

you could say the same about any shooter in that case... what does KZ or MW do over last gen's shooters besides graphics? If anything they devolved into single corridor rides?

Just out of curiosity, what are your guys' CPUs?

I have a GTX 260 with an old 5600+ dual core (OC to 3.1) and my frames are dropping like mad. It can go from 110 all the way down to an abysmal 12 fps depending on where I'm looking and surrounding action no matter the graphical settings, which leads me to believe a lot of the special effects are heavily CPU bound. I can even watch my fps drop as I just stand there continuously shooting the machine gun into a wall watching it overheat and smoke which does look pretty cool by the way.

In the steam forums, it sounds like all sorts of GPU's are able to handle the game, but no one is mentioning their CPU, so I want to know if it's my dual core just being a bitch or there is something wrong with my 260, although other games are running just fine and dandy.

Other than that, yeah this game is fucking rad. Shooting shit is fun as hell. I spent like 15 minutes in the starting area shooting tires and making them bounce wildly all over the place. Try it, it's awesome.

Visual style and atmosphere are one of the best I've seen in some time, The color palette is also done with taste and the Neon/Holographic display ilumination is so well tunned.  
 
You get to use 2 weapons, both of them awessome with great detail and imagination.

Gorgeous game and the demo was lots of fun. I highly recommend! definitely going to purchase this after i am done with some of my backlog of stuff.

Also, cement mixer was awesome.

KZ and MW, if the demo of Hard Reset is representative of the final game, has gameplay that is a lot more deep and advanced. I just hope it's not what the demo lets it up to be because that would make Quake 1 (1996) a stunner of a game. Gave the HReset demo another shot just now; Walk around, shoot environmental hazards, shoot enemies, use flashy interfaces on items, upgrade stuff. That's it.

I wish I had enough cash to burn to pick up the whole game and learn what the real deal has, seen plenty of really bad demos that did not represent the final games level of fun in the past (BioShock 1, MW1).

And Quake 1 is a damn fine game.

Awesome =D tell us how it runs. Unfortunately I'll probably be getting my new computer after I play through this game, but I'd be interested to know how it runs on your computer, since I'll probably be getting a similar machine to you.
#45 Posted by TinyGrenade (141 posts) -

Just got done playing it, and it's awesome. On higher difficulties it feels like a throwback to old school FPS games and it just looks and sounds so freaking amazing. I think it's cool that the easy difficulty basically allows people who want to see all the fun and interesting weapons a chance to blow stuff up without having to be an expert at the genre. It definitely feels like a game for a certain niche audience but that niche will have a blast with it. I'm going to buy it day of and try to get a full review up on GB asap.

#46 Posted by SSully (4193 posts) -

It is a really fun game. I thought it looks fantastic, and the weapons are a ton of fun to mess around with. The enemies are what make the game though, they are just so damn fun to shoot at!

I will most likely pick this up after I finish deus ex. I am between getting this and resistance 3.
