"The message we got was "we can give you prerelease code but only if you do this paid brand deal". We refused, naturally."

 

Elsewhere on the net, "being offered" a deal like that is a sign that you're getting somewhere.. Different worlds.

It will be fun, whenever the hell it actually comes out. :p

To be honest, I never played any Mount & Blade game and I have no idea what they are about nor what you as a player do. I feel too lazy to inform myself on it.

Have you ever played Sid Meier's Pirates! ?  It's like that, but on dry land.

But a bit

But a bit less of a story.

 

I found it addictive to begin with, but after a certain point it was just repeating the same actions again and again and again.

In a nutshell; if you like Batman Arkham series you will likely like this one too. PC port has no problems, but for some reason high textures require 3GB of video RAM even though the game doesn't look that good. The not yet released Ultra pack requires whopping 6GB.

6gb of video ram? Only a few cards even come with that.

Yeah. I guess it could be just a typo but they don't seem to be in a hurry to correct it is that's the case.

 

Also call me paranoid, but launching a nvidia brand game that needs 3+gb vram at high settings just after Nvidia has launched a new line of gfx cards? Maybe they are bringing a 6gb card to the series too  :p

I was just about to say people are confusing their RAM and vRAM. No game ever, requires 6GB on-card vRAM. 

 

I see it clearly states that, however. Still not buying it. The requirement, I mean. Look, it says 8MB of system RAM, not GB. Someone's kid is slapping the keyboard at Steam's system requirements page. 

 

Edit: Can't find any info disproving the 6GB thing. Now I want to know just how many cards even come with that much. One, or two. 

 

I see three, GTX Titan Black, R9 290X/295X2, and a one-off 280X from MSI.

But I'm digging the game so far

 

Me too, despite how long it takes me to remember which buttons to press, and when. 

 

I found this very helpful, if brief. I'm sure I'll get the hang of it, as long as I keep at it. I've never played the games that inspired this one.

Just as long as you don't spend most of your time watching. Blade Runner ? Not enough rain, fool.
