Take a look at our videos of the two PC ports (and realize that we have come a long way since then in terms of PC adaptations).

Tried out FM7 demo, FH3, Recore and man....what a difference. SDR looks dull in comparison now, jeez. In terms of colours for starters, sky and sun in FM7 and FH3 looks lovely, vivid. (6 Hours ago)
