How big is it?

#9 Posted by david3cm (635 posts) -

Since my computer is not capable of handling this game, and I need to play it as soon as possible, I have to go through the very unpleasant experience of attending a midnight launch, how I envy you PC-Preloader`s out there.

#11 Posted by EdIsCool (1122 posts) -

I preordered at best buy for the cloth map... I kinda wish I would have just went the steam route now.

Finally, the game is so close now. But I just learned that I have math test next week so I won't be able to play as much as I want to. It's making me sad.

That seems to small for a PC version these days.

@Skytylz: I regret not getting the map, also Amazon was like 20 quid cheaper for a physical copy.Stupidly didnt think or check.

@jelekeloy: depends on your location. Midnight EST.

@DillonWerner: No I tried changing mine to Australia earlier, didnt work. yes I am that desperate. Havent been this excited for a game since Vice City.

@DillonWerner: @EdIsCool: I was able to use a proxy IP to get BF3 to unlock early for my region on Origin. Try Google, there may be a work around.

Oh I'm gonna preload the hell out of this

#31 Posted by Chubbaluphigous (571 posts) -

I have already bought the game, but it isn't preloading :( Is there anything I am supposed to do to start the Preload?

#32 Edited by gike987 (1755 posts) -

Layout and file extensions in data folder seems to be almost exactly the same as all previous Bethesda games, should be good for modders.

My desire to play Skyrim as soon as possible outweighs my disgust for all the mouth-breathers that show up at Gamestop at midnight

#34 Posted by Brians (1463 posts) -

@Chubbaluphigous:Restart steam then you can. Also I am now preloading it.

#35 Edited by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

Gogogogogogogo.

@mak_wikus: The magic of decent compression tech!

@Getz: How is it that the people showing up to purchase a game at midnight look, smell and act like the kind of people that could never hold down a job?

They're either kids with their parents' money or they work for the government. ZING

#38 Posted by Chubbaluphigous (571 posts) -

@Brians: Thank You, it worked. I am not preloading the shit out of this bitch.

#39 Posted by EdIsCool (1122 posts) -

@david3cm: well those launches are often COD events, a large section of the COD audience, is the Madden audience. These are not our people.To clarify both audiences have a high proportion of Super-Bros.

Now I just need to learn how the hell to do that.

I have heard of people having success with other games on Steam and VPNs, these almost always involve spending money though.

I bet he won't even give you a second thought once he's playing!

@Cloudenvy: I was trying to work out how long I'd be willing to delay my playing to allow @CL60 to play day 1. The result of this hypothetical is 2 hours. I am not a good person.

@Ravenlight:

@Bam_D_Leprechaun

I joined two medium length HDMI cables using a HDMI switcher so I can pipe the game from my desktop(in my room) to the 50" tv in the living room. By a happy accident my room is directly above the living room. Im gonna sitback with a wireless 360 controller and emjoy PC quality visuals and mods as well as double the screen, without the hassle caused by having an unsightly and large gaming pc in the living room.
