Excellent, just picked up a 3 day pass. I think it's unlikely the entire GB crew will go but I'm hoping a couple of the guys go. Either way I'm pretty excited and I hope they showcase some next-gen stuff as well as our local developers.
I could never get into Just Cause 2. Every time I watch people play it or talk about it looks like so much fun but I could just never get into it.
Like the OP I listen on the drive to work which is around 40minutes. The rest of the week I listen to Idle Thumbs and once I have them done I listen to the old XFM podcasts with Ricky Gervais. I try to keep up with Tested also but time can be an issue.
The Quicksave/ Quickload system on the PC is super convenient for a game like this.. Plus I dunno about load times off a HDD but off my SSD it's almost instantaneous..
This is a huge reason why I got the game on PC too, and I am so glad I did. In these stealth games (I'm playing as stealth) I save and load a hell of a lot and having quick load times is very handy. I played Dues Ex on 360 and the load times got really annoying.
Visually it looks great and works great with a 360 controller.
I've been doing this too, reloading every time a unit dies. I was happy with it at the start but now that I have a full roster of ranked troops I feel like I'm missing out on a lot of the tension that makes X-Com what it is. I get the feeling that I'm at the end of my first game on easy anyway so after this I'll be playing again on normal and not reloading.
My suggestion is to run the demo on your PC and see how the game takes to it.
This is the best advice, if the demo runs well for you and you're happy with it then go PC.
