  1. Would prefer a dedicated Steam version myself. Dislike all of these different platforms, all the various passwords and usernames I need to keep remembering.... Allowing gamers to keep communicating and influencing each other is, imo, the way you will sell in greater volumes.

    Just bought a new rig for GRWL

    So what kind of before/after increase in FPS are you achieving?

    Just bought a new rig for GRWL

    Will end up feeling like a brand new game for you. Good luck.

    Dual Monitor Set Up Questions

    Thanks Rocky, that is a sweet monitor!! It will give me something to compare. Am I right in presuming your monitor is best used with an nvidia card?

    Pc gaming has changed horribly

    Yeah that's kind of how I see it. It's happily play my most preferred game over and over again, but give yourself five years and something new will have made you and friends move on so the game eventually becomes a redundant for the most part. Is the same argument with music cds, personally I'd prefer to use steam fire the most part, anything I really like would force me to buy a physical copy - and I'm fine with that also.
  7. Thanks Nightcrawler, and everyone else who posted up info. (on things I was too lazy to look up) And yes, I took the wife "computer desk" shopping today... and once I get a new rig sorted I'll enjoy trying GR:W out. Keep safe all.
  8. Thanks for that Lightspeed, so regards the missions - can I complete these in which ever way I wanted, ie with a Gun Ho or Stealth approach?
  9. Currently running a laptop, which is doing me fine for the strategy games I'm playing at the moment, though not so for getting the most out of GR:W's.. so later this year I'll be getting a new desktop PC sorted out. With that in mind, I'm also considering getting a dual monitor set up. I've always gone for monitors with low ms, is this really worth it or should I be focusing on other elements? Would you recommend I go for a PC with two graphic cards, or would a single one do the job just as well? Cheers in advance for the advice.
  10. When flying a helicopter, does the game require you to use a console keypad to fly effectively, or will a M&K be sufficient? Active multiplayer? Servers busy? How do you complete missions when joining a public server, or is that just setting you up for ultimate failure? (I presume comms is pretty much essential?) I've been checking the game out for a bit and I'll say it's impressive and some gameplay/coop videos on YT have got my interest sparked.
  11. Is the game popular enough to warrant a GR:W recruitment forum, or separate sticky thread?

    Pc gaming has changed horribly

    I really hope this turns out not to be the case. CD/DVD/Cartridge free gaming is the only way to go, besides who wants all that clutter around the house? Electronic copies carry an advantage too large to ever consider going back to "the old days". Solid State hard drives will continue to lower in price, download speeds will continue to increase - it still blows my mind to think I can download a new game straight to my PC whilst never having to leave my house and ready to play within 30 minutes. Amazing service.
  13. All depends on your perspective I suppose. STEAM reviews on the whole feel it is a pretty good game, though you will always have your exceptions. Not sure that the 3rd person/duck behind for cover idea is a fail for me or not. Plenty of other games have adopted the same idea and been very successful. As I have mentioned previously, the longevity of the game (or lack of it) is what turns me off from buying it especially at £40. Will wait for the sale if I buy it at all.
  14. Looks more like Roy Keane's (Man Utd footballer) beard to me. Agree that tactical beards should be in the game so long as I can dye them in different colours to suit the map, my clothing, personality.....

    Windows 10 update- older games

    Nice heads up - last year I purchased all of the OGR series again via STEAM. I may give the old campaign and run for its money once again. Previous attempts running them on Windows 10 just failed.
