actually it was still in the 20fps range nm, once I got near a building it dropped =/

the demo appears to be time limited too, 30 minutes is not long once you walk out of the red marker the timer starts. They did this on the first Just Cause as well and I hated it.

the time limit sucks, should at least be an hour, or nothing at all but just with a walled off map. Finishing up a video of some gameplay in sony vegas right now, fraps destroys the fps completely. Looks like this is gonna be a console buy for me anyways, won't have to worry about the fps then

lol the grappling hook is awesome, I'm like a monkey jumping trees xD

I seen enough of the demo to know I like it, the 30 minute limit just kills it for me, so not even worth trying to explore the map.

Time zones, I could probably get it on my European account, but I'm just going to wait.

sorry for the loss but..... its a DX10 only game is why, the developers dropped support for DX9, This will happen with future games too I'm sure.

Oh and you know why you need to upgrade the OS? "Just Cause" lol

Eh, if you're still using XP you really should upgrade to 7, there's really no reason no to. I think its great that they're actually trying to move technology forward rather than support a dying operating system.

There's always the PS3 for gaming if you can't keep up with PC technology I suppose.

here is a couple more screens for Just Cause 2

I wasn't really happy with the helicoptor controls, it uses the mouse to get it to turn left and right which I hate

Just Cause 2

Overall its very fun and I know for sure I'll be getting this as soon as it comes out.

Shadows/SSO Med, AA 2x everything else max, get a solid 30-40 fps, get around 50 with no AA. Probably one of the best optimized demos I've ever played. Images taken from a FRAPS recording I did, resized to 1200px wide.











Right here is where I accidentally hit space while taking off in a plane.




It spiraled off and hit a gas pump.. awesome.

last played the just cause 2 demo. just a hint to people who want the plane, if you basejump from the starting point towards the first town, glide over it and there should be a long landing strip with a hut or two at the end. it's kind of hard to see, but once you find it there's a plane there.

Yeah, windows 7 is lej and everything. Im not downloading a illegal copy and im not buying it as my pc is pretty old now, and i aint got enough money to get a new one atm.

But come on, its not exactly a burden to support XP still, while a lot of people still have it. Practically every other pc game still does.

To be honest, if your PC can't handle Windows 7, it can't handle Just Cause 2.

I didn't say it couldn't handle it, it can. Its just i wont be able to get the best out of JC2 with my current hardware. Not that im fussed, playing it on DX9 would still be perfectly fine.
