Ugh, I hope not. I never got a warranty (at least extended) or anything. At least if I had to buy a new one, they'd be easy to find

Anyhow, it finally installed (after many more freezes) and I like it a lot so far. Glad I took a chance on it.

I just noticed he didn't use spoilers. Kind of silly that people still forget (or don't care to use) them when posting.

You have 1 year from date of purchase... so you're covered.

Finished my first playthrough. Awesome experience, zero regrets about pre-ordering this one. We need more single-player games like this.

Played through the opening credits last night (after waiting for the install and patch download, sweet merciful Christ). Good stuff so far, very satisfying murder simulator.

I meant his penis. How did you know his dimensions though?

Thanks for the link. I had no idea that website existed.

I'm a DVDTalk member, so he vastly underestimated my dimensions.

As for the game, I spent 14 hours. But I'm the kind of player who searches every corner for collectibles, reads all the newspaper clippings and backstory info, etc. I also did some checkpoint reloading to make sure I unlocked all the perks as early as possible.

Moving on to a second playthrough on Uber difficulty tonight.

The game encourages replayability due to the consequences of a choice you have to make early on. The number of cutscenes, tied in with the ramifications of that choice, helps to explain the massive install size as well.

Just started playing the game last night and so far it's been great! I haven't enjoyed a Wolfenstein game like this since Return to Castle Wolfenstein on Xbox original.

No multiplayer, but still...I love a good single player experience.

Good stuff. I made it through the rather long intro last night. I do like how the game stays to its roots and allows you to spend some time in a castle-like environment early on.

When you went back were you able to change the difficulty so to just run thru and I assume you were able to pick right back where you originally left off.

I'm on Chapter 9 but missed a few things already (medium difficulty). I'd like to drop it down and just run thru to get the items. Most are in the first two chapters. Good game....

This game kind of reminds me of Blood Dragon set during WW 2.

No, I start to drool...

As far as the game, I'm enjoying it, but something about it just feels... off. Also, kinda' cheap.

I played a little more last night and developed a case of motion sickness. I'm not sure if it was just me, a slower frame rate on the PS3 or the narrower field of vision (I had the same problem in Borderlands 2).

Getting old sucks.

I gotta agree. It certainly doesn't feel like a $60 title but I can't quite figure out why.

Yeah, and I am playing it on the PS4, which is super sharp and smooth and all, but besides not feeling "next gen", it just feels a little half-assed.

The game feels and looks fine to me. You guys just have your standards set too high.

My standards are what I last played on the PS4; Killzone, Battlefield4, which are technically head and shoulders above this. Everything's relative, and when something's not up to par with what's come before, it feels cheap.

Disagree with this. I think the game looks great other than some moments that show off the flaw with the next-gen consoles and their driver issues with OpenGL.

On the other hand, it took me 12 hours to complete the game and based upon the ending, I have no urge to replay it on the game's "alternate" timeline. It was an entertaining twelve hours and I enjoyed it more than the campaign of Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty: Ghosts, however $60 for a twelve-hour campaign and nothing else is steep.

Best Buy is offering 50% trade-in bonuses due to the release of Watch Dogs starting Sunday. Deuces Wolfenstein.

Finished my second playthrough. It's a fantastic game, and I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with it. It does everything it sets out to do 100%, with the added bonus of a surprisingly emotional story. Firm place in the top 10 GOTY list.

Heads-up : My "e-Gift Card" came in the email this afternoon. Unlike a real Best Buy gift card, this one expires --like really, really soon (6/20/14). Since I can't apply it to my Watch_Dogs pre-order, I think I'll use it for a PSN $20 GC instead.

My thought exactlly....In the early 1976 mission I did have some small doubts but not anymore after getting thru Chapter 9. It looks and plays good....maybe doesn't have the same Wow factor in terms of lighting like Killzone but it holds it's own.

By the way if anyone needs help on the Enihma Codes you can find them here but be prepared....
