    I know I may not be the oldest forum person here
    (although technically I am one of them, just not this account), are any of the people that were here beforehand noticing a sudden influx of people ranting about how miserable the game is on their first and second posts?
    Suspicious.
    Maybe they just decided to register after buying the game, but I am upset at how all these people are bursting my bubble!

    Well, ...you have to admit that it would be logical for new users with problems to come here for answers.

    As I did,
    but there not coming for answers, simply ranting about how miserable the game is!

    I have to agree with you there: ....simple ranting is counter-productive.

    I feel safe in saying that if serious problems exist, UBI will provide a fix.

    Mainly because they are unaware of the potential of SH3 with mods. I had the game 1 year before it became a permanent fixture in my hard drive.

    Be sure to reply to these threads, and share them the options they have to make their install better. Then a week later, ask them what they think

    We're certainly in for a busy weekend this week, and I'm confident the Moderators and resident forum PC Guru's will do all they can to address any genuine issues people might have. If help is needed then help is what people will get. Whining for the sake of it, from returning forum members or new joiners is a different matter altogether.

    I am a new forum member who was also dismayed at the complaints...... of new forum members. My position is that I've been playing SHIII (not for that long) and I love it, I've ordered SHIV and am totally excited.... so I joined the forum and got a shock at the amount of complaining going on. I think the only query I asked (and with hindsight it was naive) was whether I should cancel my order. Nahh.. get it, play it, live it, then comment!

    Amazon say my SHIV will be with me by Thursday when I will sell my kids, lock the wife in the garage and get stuck into the Solomons....

    So, not all newbies are moaners - but Snowball effect and all that! Maybe we need to see some positive posts to do the same thing the other way.
    Anyway, forget the game for a moment, and take some feedback from me - this forum is brilliant and so are 99.9% of the people/posts in it (going off what I've read). What have I been doing with my life......? I'm looking forward to being here!
