Awesome can't wait for your videos. May I ask, when a publisher sends you the trailer, what do you use to convert it to .mp4, especially the 60fps ones?

We use our own automated system based on avisynth/ffmpeg.

This game is so much easier to play with a mouse and a keyboard.

It is, after all, a PC born game.

Most games with first person or over-the-shoulder cameras are going to be easier with mouse aim.. maybe even those not original born or intended for PC.

How is the performance?

Performance is great and very scalable. My personal opinion is that it doesn't look that much better than then ps3 version. Ok, resolution is higher and the reflective surfaces and shadows are way better. But it's definately not as much a difference as BF3 on consoles and pc. And there is mouse acceleration which i hate and can't be turned off. Also mouse movement slows down very much during bullet time. I can't remember that from the first game.

Someone will probably figure out how to turn off acceleration. Smoothing and acceleration are stupid. I don't know why everyone insists on messing with the mouse.

Thanks for the impressions.

Nice. After GTA4 I was a little concerned about the framerate. My PC can push GTA near 60, but it can't hold it with everything pushed up.. and this is the sort of game that I'd like to play at that clip.
