The graphics look great. Would like to play it but don't have time atm. I'm midway through metro 2033 redux, have metro lastlight redux to play. I'm also playing project cars, gta v, as well as still playing bf4 which I just can't give up. I'd have to pack in work to fit in another.
Would love to get Galactic Civilisation's 3 too. I loved the last one. Civilisation's beyond earth too. Spoilt !! Rainbow Six Seigeccoming sometime soon. Need to finish the metro games to make room for that. Have 2 x 128gb ssd's in RAID0 and only 40GB left.

I have the same set up rogue, its surprising how much space gets used up with a few games!

Just had a look at that video Grim and the guy puts a downer on Watch dogs stating it was boring etc, he is very entitled to his own opinion but from my point of view I thoroughly enjoyed the game from start to finish. 8)
As for the downgraded graphics, I am not aware of the trade show graphics quality 2 years ago only really the recent youtube videos which all look pretty impressive.

looks like there is a bit of a conspiracy theory that nvidea in 2 games project cars and witcher 3 is actively trying to sabotage amd

AMD don't seem to need much help lately sabotaging things. They haven't released a proper driver update for months, only beta drivers. They have said they have another beta driver in the works for project cars and witcher 3.
there has already been an update released for witcher 3 which improves graphics performance a bit, patch 1.03.
it's disappointing to see the game doesn't quite live up to early previews. But if you take a look at some of the bench mark reviews done like on www.techspot.com its not hard to see why. The game is very demanding, ultra settings cripple anything but the highest cards. Even with a gtx980 at 1920x1080 you'll see frame rates drop as low as 25fps at some parts. They refer to it as the new Crysis. If the graphics had been left as they were hardly anyone would be able to play it and they'd have gone bankrupt !!
get your arses on ts tonight. Haven't spoke to anyone in months. Project cars mrix :) . Graphics on that are superb too. Get it Grim.

A shrewed man such as yourself will prob find a better deal when the game comes out. Will be no more than Battlefront I expect. Wish I'd waited on GTA V, with all the hype, I thought I'd give it a go. I've only played it a few times. cost me 60 euro and a 7 disc install !!!
I'll prob go back to it again though.

Yes having contacted that site they explained it should work but for some reason for me it does recognise it as a valid code but states unable to use key for some strange reason.
I`ll try the other links :D
