I wish I could! I have a rand new Skyle PC with DDR4 and all the fancy stuff, but still stuck with my 8 years old video card. It,s crazy how expensive video cards can be.

How about you? Did you try it? I haven't watched any trailers yet so I can go in blind one day. Without spoiling, how is the game?

Heh, I saw on Twitter that some looney SJW wasn't going to play it cause it is "exploitative, colonialist, and racist," based on a comment in the trailer that they were going to find a planet to colonize, and somebody pipes up, "Make sure it's tropical." Makes me want to play it.Or at least buy it.

T-minus 3 hours and 15 minutes as I type this until I can play it, but I can't wait. I was really slow to get on the bandwagon for the original trilogy because it looked more like a "space shooter" than an RPG. Having played all three, I can't wait. From the release material, that's relatively spoiler free, it looks to be amazing. On the more spoilery side, I've seen some rather hilarious clips that I won't go into. I've been napping most of the day though, so I can give it a go. More spoiler free impressions tomorrow.

Well, I have to say that I'm having a really good time with this. I like the new cover system, and the Nomad makes the Mako look like the brick it was. I have to learn to drive it, but at least now it's operator errors instead of "Gah"... Squad AI is much improved, and you're less likely to be crowded into a corner because they have to be right on your six.

Profiles instead of actual classes are going to lead to a lot of versatility in the field, and that's a good thing, because combat is fast paced, and engaging. The mix of powers you can bring makes for lots of cool explosions. The story seems to be pretty good too, but I'm not really far enough in yet to really judge. That's about all I can say w/out getting too spoilery, but if someone were to ask "Should I pick it up", I'd say yes.

Sounds interesting! I hope I can save up for a video card soon. :)
