in between high rec and high test. yay
"High recommended specs" For me cant wait!
Still that *** rockstar social club? They got rid off GFWL which is good but still, RSC is a pain.
Good news for high end PC players.
My system is almost exactly equivalent to lowest specs! YAY!
Looks like I meet the High recommended specs.
This is great, hopefully my trusty GTX 460 can pull off high settings well enough.
Everything seems fine to me. But, wow, 35gb. Rage was ridiculous with its megatextures, and it only needed 25.
Oh I'm ready... bring it!
Dang, I need to upgrade...
35g os space? are you kidding me? this almost ensures it was a port from consoles and not a ground-up PC build...poorly thought out compression on their part and the user suffers.
