Dark Souls II is launching this week on consoles, but PC gamers will have to wait until April 25th to pick up their copy. While you're sitting there twiddling your thumbs, check out the PC requirements (minimum and recommended) to see if you can even run it in the first place.
I'm really interested in seeing if it turns out better than their first effort with Dark Souls, which needed a number of mods to unlock its true potential.
