Which Version Do I Want To Play?

Recommended Posts

@Thatguyinktown, does it not run in full screen on your laptop?

So here's the reason I have both versions: Back in august, I bought the game for my laptop because I thought it satisfied the minimum specs for it, and also because I didn't want to buy Xbox Live to play online. I was going to play it on steam until single player came out (back before I knew what the definition of "Soon" meant to these devs).  As it turns out, i'm not sure my laptop has the minimum ability for it (I have to run it on the lowest settings possible, windowed mode, and i still don't get a smooth gameplay experience, but I can technically play it on my laptop).  After leveling up to about level 5, I decided to just bite the bullet and get it for xbox and get xbox live as well.

I've been there. I've always been more of a PC gamer. The problem is for the last 6 or 7 years I have run Linux on all my machines. When it comes to indie games there is an abundance of choice on Linux, but the AAA titles are slow to get ported over. So for things I really want to play I have the PS4. Recently Rise of the tomb raider got ported to Linux, and I had to buy it again, because I wanted to play it in all it's UHD glory on my PC.

I think i'll get a refurbished gaming laptop for audio production work since I can work from home, and will probably install it on there.

Do you need a laptop? With these new Ryzen CPUs from AMD it's possible to put together a really nice machine for around $700.

In that case, I'd suggest looking at something from MSI, they make some nice rigs, and you can sometimes find them new in an Amazon open box deal for the same price as refurbished.
