I won't be getting it for a while but I know a lot of people have been waiting for it. When I do get it, it will be for PC of course. I heard people are upset that it's made for DX9 instead of taking advantage of DX11 because of consoles.

The current "hot" gaming device is the dedicated console.. such as X Box, PS or other brand. But for the PC, sort of a forgotten entity. One reason is that the coding of a game would be very 'heavy' or complicated for PC use.. where the X86 programming is still used. Game consoles use a less complicated code format. The X86 programming is referred to as "CISC", or Complicated Instruction Set Code.. while the more efficient code format is referred to as "RISC", or Reduced Instruction Set Code. Linux is one of the least complicated instruction code sets.

Just realized I posted this in Water Cooler instead of Gaming. Can a mod move it?

As far as gaming I am done.. WAY too much time sunk into WoW over the years, I'm not 16 any more and cant justify spending that kind of time on something with no return..

From what I have seen of the game advertisements for Skrym on TV it looks like WoW.

A donation of a million dollars has been made in your name to the "HWJ wants a Cray" foundation
