I downloaded the pre-load. Once you're done it just sits there and tells you the game will be available once they do the official release. It's 12, close to 13, gigs. I find that strange because the demo was already 5 gigs. I'm hoping theres no more downloading till an update at some point. I don't know what else to say, but if anyone has any question, shoot.
22 hours more... I don't know which one to play first! XCOM or Dishonored? They both unlock at the same time!
Thankfully I have solved this issue. I bought Dishonored on Steam and I will be getting X-COM from GameStop. I will install X-COM and while that is installing I will play Dishonored.
Don't they both use Steam, so you can't install one while playing the other?
You can install and play at the same time. You simply minimize to desktop while playing the one game, and then select resume on the install/download while playing the other. Also, I think Fullmetal's point is that he will have one ready for download, and the other he will have to go pick up so it will not be ready for immediate play. He can play some Dishonored for awhile, and then go pick up XCOM a little later in the day.
I already have dishonored pre-loaded and I plan on going to a GameStop midnight release to get X-COM. So while I am installing X-COM I will play Dishonored for awhile and after some Dishonored I will play X-COM.
