shouldn't have preordered
After 199 patches the game is still unplayable for me. Now i'm wondering myself if I will be able to play on retail, even after the optimizations kick in. I bought the game the day preorder was released, thinking my gaming notebook would be able to handle it. What a mistake. I've attempted to play a game today and, in short, it was all about flying flame-turrets and explosions on 5-30fps. On ridiculously awful settings.
Not only that but for some reason all I can hear for the entire game are my bites/shots. When attacking a marine RT, for instance, it's impossible to know when someone is coming. When I hear the shots as an alien (if i can hear them) it's already too late, i'm already dead.
Anyway, from the amount of rage from my last game I probably could write a monograph about it. FPS games are extremelly frustating when your enemy has a hardware advantage over you, even if you are clearly more skilled than they. Now i'm hating on a game that I loved and wasn't even released yet.
