The Smelter Demon is the only boss I've ever had to summon help for in any of the 3 Souls games. I was just doing NO damage whatsoever (40 damage a hit), and he would one shot me in some pretty odd ways. Other than him, I did most of the other bosses in 1 or 2 tries. Like I said before, having played the other 2 Souls games had prepared me pretty well for whatever they were going to throw at me...damn Smelter Demon.

Search for "maniaplanet" in your email. Your confirmation email in purchasing Canyon should have the key at the bottom of the email.

Thanks, this helped me find it. Not sure if I'll ever want to play the game again but it's nice to have it on my Steam account.

Switch to HTML 5. That worked for me.

I can confirm that works for me, it's just a little odd that the other options stopped working all of a sudden.

I'm not sure I got an update, but all of the videos on the website for me are also now black, but have audio playing.

I don't think I played the same game as you...I played stealth and collected everything and I beat the game in 20ish hours. This is coming from a guy who usually beats games way faster than the average player. My run through the game collecting nothing and killing everyone on the direct path took like 3 hours, so I somehow think you might be underestimating your playtime.

Same thing happened to me twice with the whole losing of saves. I had to replay the first 4 episodes twice. Although I did manage to finish the game, the technical reasons are why it won't be higher up on my game of the year list.

Is that the game where the "expert" nosedived that flying thing into the ground and exploded?

The "pro", yes.

If I can get something as similar and hilarious as that out of this game, then it is worth the 2 dollar admission price.

I was just listening to the latest podcast and they (well, really just Brad) made it sound like Far Cry 3 was crap on 360, since it was just "barely playable". I've spent over 4 hours with the game so far, a lot of that was setting stuff on fire, gliding, causing explosions, etc, all of which is technically demanding, and I haven't run into any frame-rate issues at all and the graphics look good. Halo 4 looks better on a technical level, but Far Cry 3 looks better or on the same level as most big 2012 console games, so I'm curious why it's so horrible to play... maybe someone here can shed some light or is it just PC elitism? It definitely looks and runs way better than Red Dead while doing more complicated things, and I don't remember anyone saying Red Dead was "barely playable". I was also surprised at some of their graphic complaints towards AC3, other than a few things like the textures on certain trees and stuff looking plain/bad sometimes, that was a good looking game, especially the faces. Anyone else think they sometimes complain about graphics and/or frame-rate quality when there's nothing bad going on?

If you think sub 25 frames per second isn't barely playable for a first person shooter and shouldn't be considered "an issue", then I feel incredibly sorry for you. Check this out for more information:
