    Other game studios should follow ID and Splash Damages’s path of how-to-do-things. Excellent!

    I don’t know if my Asus 5950 can handle this one. Luckily I think they will release the Nvidia 7800GS AGP tommorrow for about 300 bucks. I think that will cover the demand on my “aging” AMD 3200+ machine. Man.. 3 Ghz and AGP just ain’t what it used to be. Makes me sad, but whatever. A good game needs love too.
