now there we go!

but now it seems that quite a few people may not be able to play this game for a while until they upgrade their systems. me included. ah well, at least it'll look good when i do get to play it.

whats up with that huge jump from the previous reqs? this is *way* beyond a console's power... do other console ports have crazy reqs like this?


for those who don't know, today's low end PCs are actually more powerful the "next gen" (surely "current gen" now?) consoles, and high end gaming PC's (approx. the minimum requirements for USE PC) are nigh incomparable in terms of power. the difference is that games for consoles are made (coded) specifically for consoles, and thats what makes them work well.



mfw I read the Revan novel

it is not a cry of joy.
