Apparently there's pretty awesome TF2 stuff, too. Sucks that I can't do DXHR over Steam, I have TF2.

Well, that's it.  I've read 3 reviews including the one here and it's all good.  I honestly didn't think it would live up to the hype but it seems it has:)  I can't wait to get a hold of this one. I salute Eidos Montreal.

Reviews have been great all around, with similar complaints ie. the conversation animations and rushed ending. Still pretty excited to pick it up tomorrow.

Actually, this is somewhat alarming. Somewhat, because usually bugs will either be case by case or at least get rapidly patched out, and the latter's undoubtedly going to happen if it's really problematic.

I'm thinking they got fixed already for the most part since that build, Rob didn't seem to experience bad bugs.

Also weird/great to see Deus Ex and Human Revolution trending on Twitter. Haha.

I really don't know if I'd better pick up this one on my PC or my PS3... I prefer FPS on the PC, while I tend to play TPS on the PS3. But then again, I still enjoyed Mass Effect on PC (didn't have the choice since I don't have a 360...) Anyway, anyone saw a comparative review yet? The reviews I read so far only tested it on either console or PC, but never both... The game seems good, but I always hate it to choose blindly between a version and the other...

i've played both versions. The PC version is a bit buggier, but still workable based on what Rob told me. I prefer the controls on console, but it's more a preference thing. Normally I like first person games better on PC, but this one was just an exception. You wouldn't be ill-served getting it for PC or console, I would base your decision on what control scheme you want.

Eurogamer complained about loading times on the console versions:

Unless your PC's trash just get it there. Liz has clarified they apparently ironed out issues, and your rationale (FPS on PC, TPS on PS3) means this would go on PC anyway because it's primiarly first person. It just swings out for conversations, some actions, and ducking behind cover.

Yeah even in Rob's review he acknowledges there were bugs but that they weren't really bad.

Oh and Stephen's review is up.

I don't like games that play in the first person perspective. The only time I ever got over it was for Metroid Prime, and I still would have preferred 3rd person there. I understand that this is not a fast paced shooter like a lot of FPS games. I'm thinking if it plays a bit slower and is more rpg-like I might be able to get into it. Should I even bother trying?

It is more methodical and tactical. You can play a more combat heavy route, but it still requires thought and planning. You may enjoy it.

There's an Easy difficulty for "enjoying the story" and you can take the stealth approach if you prefer playing that way.

Played it when it unlocked. The game's pretty great! The load times however are a bit of a downer, mainly because this is a game where you can try all sorts of approaches so it's kinda lame to have to wait a long while each time. Doesn't sound like it's really improved much by SSDs either, so it's a problem everyone has to some degree.

I admit I thought I could play it as a third-person stealth game, a bit like I did in Alpha Protocol. If it plays more like an FPS, I guess I should just wait for a price drop and pick it up on Steam. Thanks for the advice! (thanks to Taelus, too)

What a shame.
It's a good game. What a rotten way to not buy.
