Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        Yeah, but a fairly mild one. Those specs seem reasonable to me.

          Especially for a non-Platinum developed Japanese AAA title. Honestly, based on the visuals they've shown, I fully expected some steep requirements.

        Do games that require quad core actually not run at all on dual core machines? Does it throw an error 'needs more cores' and just shut down?

      recommend 760.. hrm.. Wonder if my 770 4GB can max this at 60fps.

      I'm glad they are actually adding higher textures/lighting and such to the PC version. Would love to know how this looks and runs on PC before i decide on which version to get.

      PS4 is 1080p/60fps minus the slightly higher fidelity.
