Ask me about the moon landing or the temperature at which jet fuel burns. You may be surprised at what you learn.

Seriously? FUCKING SERIOUSLY? I literally just bought a PS3 copy for $20 a few hours ago.

Mad salty right now. Oh well at least it came with the artbook and soundtrack.

Hugest gap between recommended and minimum requirements I've seen in quite a while. Pentium IV 2 Ghz? Really?

Why would they release this just a few days before Watch Dogs?
They aren't competing for the same audience, also not expecting megaton sales. This didn't do that well on the consoles either.

More importantly, Dynasty Warriors 8 XL CE also releases on Steam the very same day lol. A rather costly day for me.

They announced this PC release months ago.
I'm not a very smart man.

Oh well, I'm sure it performs well enough on PS3. Not expecting Crysis 3 or Metro Last Light levels of disparity between consoles and PCs.

The console versions of this are kinda rough. It has like 100% screen tearing during gameplay. Its kind of a technical disaster zone honestly, I was glad to hear a PC ver is getting put out.

The game that needs a PC ver the most is still Dragon's Dogma though.

Oh this is great! I sort of passed on it mostly because I couldn't bring myself to buy any more full sized last gen games.

Is the DX11 stuff BS?

The game started out on PS3/360 which were Directx 9 equivalents. I don't get what they hope to achieve beyond that unless it uses DX11 for performance boosts (i.e anti-aliasing).
It's 2014, upgrade from Windows XP already.

none of them have been by Suda

But yeah, this is easily the best post-Suda GHM game I've played.

Eh, I don't think it's the same crowd. I have the game on PS3 and I'd rather double dip on PC than get Watch Dogs. Even if it was also $20.

Ok, that hurts >_>

Goddamn. Guess I'll double dip during a steam sale if I really like it.

Agree on Dragons Dogma. I couldn't take the garbage framerate after a few hours and ended up quitting.

Oh don't worry, I already have.

I just find it very strange to label something DX11, if nothing in the game resembles it.

Like imagine if a PS1 game got ported to PC tomorrow and the specs says "Pixel and Vertex shaders required".

Pretty sure UE3 has an optimized DX11 path now. It's just easier to support the game when there are less configurations to worry about.
