  1. it's poorly optimized? lol
  2. At what resolution? The game developer may be talking about 1080p for example.

    My bet would be, considering this is available on PC, and consoles, and by a smaller franchise, that it's not the best coded game ever to begin with.
  3. I'm Pretty Sure Gothic 3 was also Poorly Optimized and people had problems running it so that could be the same
  4. I had the Gothic 3 and God Forsaken copy, they were horribly bad, poorly optimized. My guess this new release would still be the same.
  5. yeah, gothic 3 was pretty badly optimised, as was gothic 2, but I found them both enjoyable games with many hours of gameplay. I wonder if it will run on my 8800gts 640mb, as it is below the minimum requirements?
  6. Looking at some of the visuals in video clips I've seen, it looks like the graphics are fairly good. So I can see where they could justify the high system requirements. However, having played Gothic 3 in the past as well, I do agree it wasn't the best for optimization.

    That's what you get sometimes when you're talking about a smaller franchise like this though.
  7. the steam specs differ a little but atleast its not a GTX 295 lol

  8. I need to get a decent but cheap power supply for my wife's PC so I can put my old GTX 260 in it. Then I had considered giving Gothic 4 a shot as she'd like to play an RPG style game similar to that style. She started playing Oblivion again a couple weeks ago for fun. :)
