Can you believe we’re already three weeks into 2012? As time continues to speed by, it won’t feel like too long before we hit the first real gaming releases of the year in February, and then it won’t be too long a wait before March rolls around and Mass Effect-ians are receiving closure from the hit sci-fi series. After the jump, PC players can see what hardware they’ll need to play Mass Effect 3.

    Mass Effect has never really been difficult to meet the requirements for. This is good as the game looks fairly nice considering.

    No wonder they didn’t want to talk PC specifics when I talked to them not so long ago. Where the hell is the Dx11 support?
