Just so you all know, there is your weekend deal if you don't know already. For those who own it, how is it as a port to PC? I know I myself never liked GTA on PC (nice) but K&M was alright. How well could I run it? Based off the recommended specs, it seems like I just squeeze right in there.

its real fun if you hook up a controller and use dual controls

i have a ps3 controller hooked up and i switch between driving (controller)
and on foot (keyboard/mouse)

makes it very fun.
even without, the driving isnt *that* difficult and can be done.

Ive found no problems with this port at all. and very much worth $17 especially if you can play some coop with friend.

Friend of mine had the same exact build as you, he said his experience was fine in DX11 mode. Although he had to notch down a few things overall it was smooth.

He games on 1600x900 resolution btw.

Anybody know if the season pass is retroactive?

Edit: Oh, I thought it included ALL the dlc that would be released. Guess it's only the mission packs. I suppose it must be retroactive then.

Season Pass only includes the 3 "Big" DLCs that have been released; Genki Bowl, Gangstas In Space, and the Trouble With Clones. That's it.

And, those 3 DLCs are worth about 2.5-3 hours of gameplay that pretty much mirrors existing Activities/Missions in the base game.

I got it for the same price on Amazon a few days ago, right after finishing Saints Row 2, which is very playable if you use a community fix. SR3 is definitely a better port since you don't have to do anything just to make it playable. In general though I liked SR2 better. SR3 has flashier graphics and the driving is really improved, but the game is just really cartoonish and often unpolished in terms of presentation. Most of the missions are just bonus activities rather than actual story missions, which is annoying--the missions weren't great in SR2 but at least there were a lot of them and they tended to have some nice set pieces and you really felt like you were dismantling the enemy gang's control of the city. In SR3 it's annoying how usually you'll do a bunch of fetch quest missions or boring helicopter missions.
