Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • Commander JJ of the Normandy

    I am ready.
    My pc is ready.
    My body is ready.

    • Viking Of Science

      My Mininuke is ready to accept the disc πŸ˜€

      • Commander JJ of the Normandy

        Oh nice.
        I have nearly all the older ones already, but really looking forward to getting my Fallout 4 in the mail.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Aren’t all 3 of those the same thing?

    • David Weatherhead

      Almost time…

  • Valshen

    You already live in a vault.

    • Grand Admiral Chief


  • Michael Matusowsky

    I’m so glad my PC makes it to recommended :D.

  • Gareth L (That eXCheez Guy)

    When will the GOTY Edition be available? πŸ˜€


  • Grand Admiral Chief

    Dammit, my GPU is minimum.


  • HairyEwok

    Specs are more a guideline to me than a “you must have this” thing.

  • BacchusZA

    I’m a bit low where the CPU is concerned, but I have a *way* more powerful GPU & more RAM than recommended, so I should be sorted πŸ™‚

  • BMXWufam

    So, I don’t have a home pc and my laptop won’t handle this but what would it cost to build each setup mentioned?

    • HairyEwok

      Building up from scratch. Your looking at anything from R6k to R12k
