Just read the Important Message story and user comments on Gamespot then came here and read this article and the user comments. Giantbomb has such a positive user base. For me it's about figuring out who to ignore and sticking to it.

Totally forgot about that scene, haven't seen it since I bought the box set. Thanks for the link. I was pretty sure he was talking about the drops but not certain. On one hand I hope they don't keep making references without explaining them in the podcast, but then again thanks to you guys.
Offering my thumbs up to the last paragraph as well after reading the eye-roll inducing comments from internetters across the... internet.
@Branthog: Fortunately not for me. I just played for about an hour, no crashes to desktop. I was very concerned last night. I'm very happy now.
So my experience after getting home from work following reading up on all this (at work)
- I installed these latest drivers.
- I forced vsync in the Catalyst Control Center
- added the following to my launch options in Steam:
+cvaradd g_fov 12 +com_allowconsole 1 +com_skipIntroVideo 1 +m_smooth 0
The game is running amazing now. It was miserable last night before I had to go to bed. Now it's silky smooth, no tearing, and slight pop-in of textures.
