    There is no, there never was

    and there will never be the thing called "free lunch". Even the Salvation Army will charge you, someday, somehow...

    Yeah this has happened about 3 or 4 times now, and every now and then the game just...Pauses. I don't think it's an issue with the game, it's more like the launcher.

    It’s because that “clever” launcher is P2Ping in the background. 8 wiped all traces of this from my machine. No invert aim in game was first strike, the launcher was strike 2!, I wasn’t giving it a 3rd

    Very underrated game. While the combat may be repetitive, its still fun (at least for one playthrough), graphics are impressive, storyline and locations are interesting.

    game works fine for me EVENTUALLY percivere, it crashes 1st few attempts but eventually reaches 5 minutes then unlocks ,but be warned,its free for a reason ,after every 10 minutes you get a popup pausing the game and pushes you too there site too offer you more games,i think this is what is crashing it the 1st few attempts as there kickthrough software is buggy the way they worked it into the game after u unlock game after 5 minutes it doesn't crash again just the kickthroughs are annoying in battle.

    Serious question: Are you just trolling people with all the snarky criticism posts, or are you being serious? It seems like it's trolling since I haven't seen you add anything meaningful to the topics where you're being snarky.

    I'm still new-ish here and if this is just an act, I can't get a read on it. If it's a troll, it's a good one. :)

    Hello,

    As someone has stated before, the GameSession launcher seems to not like AfterBurner (or RTSS).

    The game crashed two times.
    I closed AF and RTSS, and then, the game activated (I was in the colosseum).

    Good point. The first time I ran it I was running FRAPS(no overlay tho I use my G19 LCD) It crashed and even popped a warning about FRAPS

    Thanks, Hilbert! Don't know if I'll enjoy it that much, but it seems (to me) like a decent game at worst.

    I enabled supersampling and then the screen went black, even after alt+tabbing. I can't find where the game settings are stored (despite what many sources say, it isn't the root directory of the game, or at least I can't disable supersampling from there).

    When alt+f4'ing the game, GameSessions showed a bug report saying the game was suspiciously closed too soon. I was going to mention the bug I encountered, except the submit button didn't work.

    At least the first 5 minutes of the game played smoothly and looked nice otherwise...

    GameSessions app keeps unloading game! Their PR stunt is going to back fire if they do not fix this issue. I'm going to pay the $4.99 for the steam key and remove GameSessions from my PC. Cannot play this game in its current form.

  15. Yeah... seems to be going around; appears to be an in-game AMD logo while you play the free version too...
