OP  1/18/12 2:17:41 PM#21

A little update.

I loaded Modern Warfare 3 and set the screen to 1440x900 (native size)

with the following detail level, and it SCREAMS! Very fast with no lag in video or audio.

I have no idea of the framerate, but it is just as smooth at the xbox360 version with excellent datail to boot!

I think i'll be fine for Guild Wars 2   (^_^)

PS: the funny thing is, www.canirunit.com says I should NOT be able to play MW3 at all =) it says i failed...

I THINK I WIN =)

One of my best friends (offline and on) is also a girl, and she hates it whenever other girls go around "bragging" and making a big deal about how they're "girl gamers". Heck, we hate being called "gamers" at all, and we play games more often than anyone else I know. Video games are my top pastime, but calling myself a "gamer" makes it sound more like some kind of weird lifestyle. ("vidja gaems r mai lyfe")

As anyone who reads my most of my posts might know, I play a lot of TF2. I hear girls on voice chat all the time, and it's extremely rare for anyone to even acknowledge that it's a girl talking. You don't even see the occasional ironic "omg r u a gurl?"

I don't know. Maybe it's still bad on Xbox Live or something, but I figure it's just a matter of time before people stop acting like "girl gamers" are unusual. Other than some of the girls themselves, I think it's mostly just tweens who do this, but they tend to act that way in real life anyway.

This sums it up pretty well.


Aaaaanyway, good to see you've got the info you need, OP. Can I Run It is a useful tool, but as you can see, it doesn't take a lot of things into account. My video card uses special drivers that aren't recognized by most things, so I'm constantly told my drivers aren't supported, but they've always worked just fine. (Except for Brink, which told me I didn't meet the requirements and wouldn't even let me run the game.) The best judge of your computer's performance should be yourself.

i hate guy gamers. they are so uninteresting and bland, all they talk about is how awesome it will be to get the next tier armor set. theyre probably the reason why mmorpgs nowadays feel like going to work... not only do they take things way too seriously they forget that gaming should be fun and that there is a social/community aspect to mmorpgs as well.

Bet it still beats virtually all of the Intel graphics, even the current ones.

its gotten worse over the years. Most of the time i had online friends that were girls were if i played asian games, free games, or games that had some sort of special crafting/player housing.

This behavior isn't exclusive to males. I assume you're trying to make a point, but I can't tell what it is.

I don't see the point of comparing male or female gamers (and it have nothing to do with the OP).

Some of the best players I played with have been IRL females, and in many cases don't I know and don't really care either.

I like fun and nice players that at least are slightly competent or want to learn how to be competent (I have trained up a bunch of people myself, I rather recruit a nice person to a guild than a good player, I can learn an inexperienced player to be good but never a jerk to be nice).

The only ones I know that cares are even manchuvianists/feminists that dislike the other sex and horny 14 year old boys that try to pick up girls in the game. I am not sure what is sadest.

I feel like the OP is a psychological test filled with numerous stereotype indicators specially designed to incite particular reactions.  Any response to this thread becomes a data point.  Consider this mine.

I think the system would run GW2 well enough, for a girl.

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

That is definitely not official. Those requirements appear to be too steep. Anet devs have stated that the game can play just fine on older machines that run Win XP and with video cards that run DX 9. For in house testing they run GW2 on older machines and you cannot buy the video cards that they use anymore.

DX 10 will be an option for people who can turn all of the nifty graphics up with faster and newer computers but will not be required. Most likely if you can run GW1 on highest settings then at the very least you can run GW2 on lowest and still able to play.

GW2 runs a highly modified version of the GW1 engine. One of the reasons that they are able to put more details in the game is because of their art team. Instead of a more realistic approach they went with a stylized art direction. Because of that they are able to make the game look great but able to run on older machines.

How are those requirements too steep?

It sucks that Gaile Gray from anet only said dx10 will be supported and not required, and not mention anything about Dx11, but I got hopes and somewhere down the line they'll include an option for Dx11.

They started making the game in 2007. So you have to figure that the machines that they were using were made before that. In 2009 Anet stated that the machines they were using were older machines and the video cards were a few years old and were not sold anymore. Anet also stated that they realise many players still use older machines and want the game to run on those older machines.

DX11 hadn't exsisted yet when Anet had finilized the game engine. Pretty sure if they can make an option for DX 11 they will do so.
