they have been crippled by the editor guy :?

Basically, game is beautiful and full of picturesque details so it also (quite surprisingly) drains even very powerful GPUs.

A tip for you, Smejki:
They simply kinda forgot to put in a frame limiter. You're getting a huge amount of FPS, and that causes the GPU strain.
To fix that, simply turn on vsync\triple buffering.

The Yogscast are doing a Let's Play.

They seem to really be enjoying it. They love the creepy atmosphere and monster design.

I think I had that turned on. The game was noticably lagging a bit (so low FPS, not high). The problem occured in a place where I put some 7 or so torches (light sources) in "one room" and an enemy got there casting shadows, and on the last level when I got close to the four guradians. There is a lot of geometry in my opinion.
I have HD 5850, core i5 750 and Win7 64bit.

It's got nearly half a million views already. That's going to increase LoG sales by $100K +

GiantBomb Quick Look (Level 4 for anyone worried about spoilers)

Technically Dave says that his review would be 5/5 stars so I was debating whether this should go here or in the reviews thread...

Either way it's Vinny (steering) and Dave (leering) sitting-in on the Quick Look so the only PC dude addition to that would be Drew.
