Makes with the working


  • Does not remember windowed mode
  • I was having hella stuttering issues until I put the framerate limiter in YOLO mode.
  • Day one launch noped unless you were in offline mode. Bad form gents.


  • A little slow on the draw, as to be expected of unreal 3 games
  • Cross platform multiplayer works out of the box


  • Now I’m confident giving it 4 chairs, the last update fixed the herky-jerkyness and the random freezing.



Shiny / Sounds


  • Sound and soundtrack were top of the notch
  • Voice work was just as good. I really wanted to kill clap shack
  • Graphics were great but there was no single point where I went Oooooh shiny!
  • Unreal Engine 3 is getting long in the tooth organ



  • For some reason it won’t hide the panel.
    • Latest update fixed it!





  • I can’t for the love of FMS find the perfect gerbil setting
  • The default layout worked minus the inventory key. ‘I” Really?
  • Like how it has cheat mode auto aim built in


  • Standard FPS fare


  • Why can’t I bind the Ctrl keys?
    • Because, since the Linux version is based on the Mac port and in MacOS Ctrl is used as a modifier to emulate a right click on those 1 button mice they have, someone forgot to remove that limitation.\




  • It’s challenging and I don’t completely understand what the hell I’m doing …and that’s a good thing.
  • At first I was playing it full-metal FPS and getting killed to death …a lot.
  • Once you get on the quest bandwagon things pick up.


  • This is a single player FPS MMO
  • The Aspie part of me likes the repetitive goals
  • The critic part of me gets a bit bored by it
  • It’s certainly a fun game, and the guys at gearbox did a good job of making it
  • The port is top notch as well


  • I like it. But then again, I knew I probably would.
  • Much like its predecessor, it can get a bit grindy and repetitious.
  • It gets to a point where I just ignore the lower level enemies and carry on my way.
  • As far as Linux gaming goes, there really isn’t anything quite like it, so I’ll give it three chairs.
  • Doesn’t get 4 because being on Linux doesn’t excuse it from its repetitious-ness.


Final –

Even if you hate Shooters, buy this game.    It’ll give these guys some much deserved wet stinkies and help encourage more Developers to contract these guys for ports.

It’s a RPG

Correction, it’s an MMO-RPG. Go over there and kill X amount of monster Y and pick up item Z. It’s got a better story than most MMOs but considering how much more money 2K has over <insert random dev here>, it fucking well better!
