game looks very good ... BUT
19.99 list price
only 10% off = 17.99
a little too expensive , it also sets a 2.5 ghz as a minimum, mine is 2.66 ghz so it will be a dramatic performance , cpu will be at 3.2 ghz ( only for turbo boost NOT meant to run at it all the time) ...
I don't think the game is in any way performance hungry. Granted, I haven't played much yet, but it all is acceptable on my ancient system! I'm currently playing this game with a 10+ year old desktop computer (Athlon 64 X2 5200+ with a GeForce 8800 GTS) and it's working fine. Only problem I have is that the engine doesn't offer full screen with 4:3 monitors as it will stretch the image from 1600x900 to 1600x1200. A Letterbox mode would be nice, but who uses 4:3 monitors nowadays anyway?
As for the price. I think it's totally fair for a new release of that calibre. I didn't have to think twice to get the deluxe edition.
10+ years.... i am very happy to read that you 10+ year old one performs well, mine is 10 aswell very soon in sep. this year, the problem is many games keep increasing the ghz
Anyway it is impossble to find a decent answerr ( Google)on the ghz issue
I read many nonsens post of techs claimimg that it also depends on the speed of the cpu:
many nonsens replies claim that it matters if the CPU is faster :
example: lets say there is a need for 3ghz they claim that a newer machine @2.8 would run it cause its newer so i really want to see if a game that requires a i5 quad core processor @3.4 ghz would also run on a i7 9700K @3.6 ghz (base not oveclocked)
imo ghz =ghz especially if they compare quad cores and 6 and 8 cores of an i5 and i7
ghz = ghz ( talking about the casualgames/indie games)
every real good game like Witcher and all other demanding games that really use your cores and big fat GPU
these games are REAL games it is easy to buy a system for that you know what it needs .....
but since i play casual ( usually very poor optimised) they usually bash the CPU and the GPU is sleeping
so thats the differnce between AAA games that are optimised and run on huge systems)
