November 2005 PC Gamer edition has a huge review of the game. Also included is the SP demo [the cover CD]. I've not read it or looked at the screenshots, but I saw the final score, 92%. Not bad. The low points they said were 'repitive FPS actions,' but I don't know what that means. I'm so buying FEAR. They say it'll come out 10-19-05. Lookin' good!
Dig for victory!

Basically 'repetitive FPS actions' means a lot of similar 'run and gun' sections. But sometimes it's not a bad thing. I'm waiting for PC Zone to come out next week, they have a big review too. I always trust them because I agree with many of their reviews. I'll post what it scores next thursday.
I read the review last night in bed [I couldn't sleep w/o reading it. So sad.]. They don't release any new information besides a new gun, at least for me, the 3-barrelled weapon is "long range rocket launcher," and another gun that pins ppl to the walls like PK's stakegun [so damned cool]. The min system reqs are pretty high, imo, but it really shows when the game is cranked way up. I also read about the Doom movie that's coming out in October. Admittedly, I'll see it just because it's doom [that's probably what the marketing monkies are hoping for] and for the BFG. Hollenshed gave a quote saying it is "really awesome" so we'll see. They're already planning a Doom 2 movie. And the rock isn't starring, he said he opted for the supporting role of the Marine. The producers said that Bruce Willis wanted to play the Marine! [A little old, dude.] So, that'd be a laugh or two.
My PC Gamer hasn't arrived yet... Has it actually been released? I looked in a Walden Books and a Barnes & Nobles and neither had the new issue, I want my FEAR demo dammit.
I didn't make it!
whooo i just my oct 2005 issue a few days ago its a lil early, were still in sept man and u can just download the demo but itll take a while.
Well on PCgamer's website it says the FEAR issue just hit newstands, and that was about 3 days ago. And I have dial-up, so the downloading isn't much of an option. EDIT: Wait, that may be wrong, I might've misread the page. ARGH, well, I guess I'll be waiting longer than I expected. But then how'd Amerika read the review? 2nd EDIT: Wait, I was right, it does say that on the main page...

Dammit, you people always get stuff first lol. I still have 5 days to wait for mine. I had a nightmare that involved Alma the other night, it was shit scary. And I keep hearing whispers around my house, I'm not joking...
I've always gotten my mags way before the actual date [I got november in september]. PC World, PCG, GigaHertz, etc. Should I LOL? No, not worth it. I don't know if the demo on the cover is the same one released a few weeks ago, I've not bothered to install it [running low on HD space again!]. There's also a DVD on the cover, in a green-grey sleeve. I think it's some new RPG. I don't play RPGs. I could mail the cd and DVD to you if you really wanted. I'll pay shipping, no biggie. Ppl need good information as soon as it comes out. Any takers? PM me your address and I'll send em'.

Anyone want to mail me a copy of pc gamer?
That won't be necassary Amerika, thanks though. I'll just wait for the nearest book store to get it, or I'll just have a friend download the demo for me.
