Pc gamers laugh at these simulations, wondering who would actually want to buy them.

But they are actually used to help train young farmers in agricultural colleges and without them you'd all starve.

Is that why my avocados are always squashed? Nubs training on their farming skillz with shitty harvest moon ripoffs.

There is actually a lot of adjustable settings in the game this time round. With FS 15 you could only adjust between a low, medium and high preset, with a Anti-aliasing option too.

Now you can adjust vegetation and grass draw distance, texture quality, shader quality. shadow quality and more. Its weird because the minimum system requirements, like 15, are very different from what I tried.

The game runs at medium to high settings on a Core 2 processor 3.0ghz and Geforce 9600gt gpu from around 2008 with no real problems. Its something that parents should be made aware of who are looking to get the game for their kids.

Well done to the team for releasing a decently optimised game at launch for what it is.

Proof that PC players want to be peasants too...
Why won't they just buy a console then ? :-)

There's a difference between being a golden agricultural god and a simple peasant serf.

I actually think these simulators can be a lot of fun and relaxing to play.

  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Turns out everyone on that island had to survive lara from murdering them with an AK47. From fragile student, to trained military killing machine in next to no time. (5 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite What was this survival aspect they were meant to be pushing? I was under the impression from the devs that you had to, you know, do stuff to survive (5 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Sdarts: Hated the first one, couldn't be arsed with the second. Wasn't Tomb Raider, or at least what I remembered it to be most memorable for. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: already started. Already noticing dialogue changes. (7 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: Yeah, really great story. Also, make sure to replay a second time, the enhanced edition has much more elements and story for the second playthrough. It's worth it. (7 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Quite frankly, I'm excited for the StarCraft Remaster. I haven't played the original in years, and even though my brother has the CDs - and DLCs - it's very old game design wise. (7 Hours ago)
