So I couldn't resist the marketing for this game all over the net and decided to buy it. Heck, I spend $30 on beer a week, why not.

After downloading, Game wont start.

I get 3 seconds of the loading screen,  and nothing.

Verified files, no luck 
Updated graphics card driver,  nothing
Restarted computer  3 times, nadda
Killed just about everything running on my computer besides steam, no dice

Ran across a post about updating to a later version of C++ redistributable (http://forums.playbattleg ... 89-game-wont-start/) and will try that along with a general windows update. I"m on Windows 7 still so not sure if it will work but worth a shot.

Anyone else have issues? I'm currently waiting on everything to download and update.

That's really strange. I'm on Windows 7 and have had no issues with the game other than 2 crashes in the whole 5-6 weeks I've had it.

I think part of it is I keep windows update turned completely off (notify only) and haven't run updates in forever. Every since service pack 1, it seemed like every update just made something run buggy. I was probably 9 months old on some key updates
