    Anyone here got it :p Bought it but cant get it to run smoothly on my notebook :( Plays laggy, even if I run windows on best performance :( Want to play multiplayer :(
    Anyways installing sucks bigtime. You need to register at windows live games site and rockstar social club. Bloody annoying if you dont have those accounts :(

    Never tried any of the GTA games.. I also don't have nothing good to say about Windows Live.. Had that crap with Gears of War, didn't like it either. Don't waste your money on NFS Undercover..

    thats y game publishers are putting more emphasis on the cosole versions of games instead of their pc counterparts, unless its based off pc and ported to console

    yeah, you can see its been ported..... Its like the UT3 menu. Its still the same console menu only now you can click with the mouse but controller keys are still showing.

    UT3 was really made for PC from the get go. They just really fawked up the UI and omitted to put a LOT of functions/options/modability in the game.

    Didn't I read or hear somewhere that in a beta or early test build of UT3 there was a fantastic UI and plenty of "functions/options/modability" to it? Then when one of their last test or demo versions came out, a LOT of that stuff was missing. Epic claimed that they were going put it back in--that it was not necessary for the demo--but then it never made it back.

    Well, Epic recently anounced that there is an expension pack coming. What will be included in this pack is still unknown. I only hope for a tweaked Low Grav mutator, the current one is just way too floaty.

    There were alot of problems from the start with UT3 but the biggy was playability. Lots of folks couldn't play UT3 cause they required upgrades.

    I can only hope this expansion pack is FREE!! If not I won't be the first to test it out..

    Yeah, If it ain't free, I'm probably gonna wait a month or so see what the general word is about it and if actual stuff has been fixed/implemented. All in all, the gameplay isn't that bad except when playing low grav where the scale of things just doesn't fit anymore. Maybe all we need is bigger maps tho... Dunno, didn't try mapping with the new Ed yet. I'm hoping it'll fix some of the stuff but I ain't holding my breath.
