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.

About the game

  • Seth
    Seth @nostradamus: i know your comment is not serious and likely you secretly loving both of these games, but at least it reminds me that i have still yet to pick up Spider Man. Looks like decent game. (11 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus

  • b0vril
    b0vril yea, I don't really know how emulation works. (1 Day ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The CPU will probably have multiple compatibility layers, replicating each architecture. Most likely just for PS3 and 4. Any decent CPU within the last decade has the PSX covered. (1 Day ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Probably an architecture thing, or something to do with the bios. Most emulation is brute forced. There's a good reason why the likes of PS3 are only now being efficiently emulated. (1 Day ago)
