Default Gears of War for PC.

All I have to say is WOW. The game is very very evolved, and plays as a great FPS. The graphics with DX10 are amazing, and the combat system is as of yet unprecedented (IMO). Here are screenshots from my journey (they are a bit worse than they were in game due to imageshack's uploading crap).

Everything is maxed out, with DX10 and AA turned on.

It looks even better when it doesn't get compressed by FRAPS and then compressed again by imageshack.

It is so realistic too. I mean, there is basically no HUD so it looks like a movie. My mom walked in and was like: WTF Are you watching?

Yeah I love the graphics. And how smooth it runs! I have everything maxed out except the DX10 setting, and it runs smooth on my 7900gs.
I love the combat system, too. Are you using mouse and keyboard? I am using a controller, but I like the accuracy of the mouse. I cant wait til I get to the exclusive PC content like the Brumak, thats the main thing I keep hearing about in the PC version.

Oh, my favorite part is, these dudes are wearing this super thick armor, and they are supposed to be complete badasses, but none have any helmets on. It ads to the badassness but its kinda funny too.

Is there a way I wonder of making it an FPS mainly (I'd much prefer it then ) There may be a way of changing the camera at some point, as I have played this game through and can't say I was terribly impressed by it on the Xbox 360. I have a feeling thats because I'm not too into 3rd person games.
