    No idea if it'll ever even exist but if it does I'd probably go for something between the two, like an i5 10400f. The Ryzen system is overkill unless you play other, current gen games.

    Maybe Facebook should buy this one up, looks like it'll put every other browser based train game to shame!

    I've been considering grabbing this but I'm still a bit weary about the fact that it was designed primarily for use in VR. How are the mouse and keyboard controls? Are they kinda a bolted on, clunky...

    The Grande West Vicinity bus is kinda interesting to me cause my city runs a few of those on the less frequently serviced routes but the game definitely looks like it was made by developers who have...

    You might be able to run it at the lowest settings. 8GB of RAM isn't really very much these days and the RX560 is not a very good video card so it'll be laggy but possibly playable.

    Although I'd agree that its a time saver, it's best to keep in mind that pre-builts often come with small cases that have shoddy power supplies and cheap motherboards which will severely limit the...

    familiarity with the routes (and run 8 itself) you're planning to run on would probably be the best asset. it would help to run them solo in the simulator as much as possible while also studying...
