    Is there really not a thread for this? I searched but could not find one.

    Any way I think it looks really good. I enjoyed the first on console and bought it again on PC for a fiver off Origin (Not played it yet though!). Anyhoo, there is a quick look on Giant Bomb.

    same for me , i played on console first them purchased the special edition on pc as it was such a good game. :)

    cant wait for the next one but i was hoping for a follow on game but this is more of an alternative view with death but i think it will still be good.

    This is a cracking game. Loving it so far. It looks really nice, yes there are some low res textures, but you don't really notice them as the game design is epic and the frame rate seems pretty solid. Seams a nice mix of action and skill trees. Double thumbs up so far.

    Finished the main story last night. Loved it :thumbsup:

    The Abyssal Forge dlc drops today I think. I know Argyl's Tomb got mixed reviews but I enjoyed it, cracking boss! I'm hungry for more content :smashin:

    Been debating whether to get this for the pc or ps3. I know a few people who have played it and they all really enjoyed it.

    I originally had it for Xbox 360, but after joining the PC Gaming Master Race I sold my Xbox copy second hand and bought it for PC in a Steam sale... and turned a profit!

    Its so much better looking on my PC. The panning was so jerky on Xbox it was giving me motion sickness on my 60" TV, so I had to play on a smaller set. Its silky smooth at 1080p when played from my PC to my 60" set and I feel good! Its a bit of a lazy port in places (restart the :censored: game to change resolution :mad:) but I've tried both and I would definitely recommend the PC version over the console version.

    Wrong link IVF!

    Finished the Abyssal Forge. Probably found it more enjoyable than Argyl's Tomb (though I really enjoyed the Argyl's Tomb boss).

    Check out the opposite direction from when you start once you've beaten the forge for a small bit extra and a pretty sweet Axe!
