    Ugh, I got an i3-6100, not sure if my computer would be able to run the game because of JUST that one part. It seems it's rated similarly on power to the i5 for the minimum specs, but still...

    Don't take minimum required specs as gospel, they're still just recommendations, not super strict "if you don't have this too bad". In all likelyhood, your i3 will work just fine with the game.

    Unless this game uses an assload of multicore rendering you guys should be fine. the the single-thread performance on those are about on par with an i7 tbh. and even then those are 2 core 4 thread CPUs so you're "essentially" running a quad core CPU. I bet a sandy bridge i5/i7 can play this game just fine

    It's a common misconception that you can't play games on an i3.

    also PCMR, don't kill me, I know that hyperthreading is different than 4 physical cores, and won't perform as such lmao.

    The i3 series started becoming prominent entry level gaming processors with the 4th gen I believe. An i3-6100 should very well be able to run thus game.

    Nah it's just an unlocked frame rate which rarely (if ever?) hits 60 in combat or any important sequences other than traversal.

    Definitely, games even now use 2 cores at best on the PC side.

    Looks like I'm gonna need to upgrade my GPU soon. I don't know if it'll run the game at 1080p.

    In case anybody cares, here are some of the things you can change. I ripped the screenshots from Capcom's website.

    On a side note, can anybody guess as what can run this game with all settings off or at minimum at 720p 60FPS?

    Would you start watching movies at 12 fps now? Would you play PS4 games on 240p tv now?
    Once you get used to new tech, you can't go back anymore

    30fps is awful for fast-paced games, though unstable framerate is even worse. bloodborne reaches the low twenties, you can see still images of the blurred dashing character during the fast sidestep move the game has. you can't tall me that's good. when you're used to 60, that motion looks like you're installing 2 programs in the background and are capped in ram while playing. no thank you.

    same applies to people who play at 120, they don't like 60 anymore, as far as i heard.

    There's a bias in this. However, I can comfortably go between 144hz/fps and lower with no issue. Whether it's new games/tech or old games/tech.

    Not a fair comparison to use movies. One could then also say that if movies are 24fps & people are fine with it, people should also be fine with 24fps in games. Or that once you see a movie in 48fps, you could never go back to 24fps movies.

    It really depends on a lot of stuff. Not just settings, but also how well the game will be optimized.

    WTF GTX 1060 to run this game at 30fps 1080p?

    And still downgrading this version to mantain parity with consoles? really Crapcom?

    Well, most movies are 24 FPS and we don't seem to mind...

    60 FPS is a lot better for live-action stuff, it keeps motion from blurring. OTOH, it's a lot easier to make convincing/realistic CGI at 24 FPS, so that's a big trade off.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm pretty happy with the western release of MH:XX but this would be one hell of a game for the Switch! I haven't lost hope it'll come eventually.

    Crapcom's SFV has cross-pc-ps4-play, does's this MH support crossplay too?
