For the most truly hardcore gamers out there, nothing is more satisfying than being the owner of a sick rig. A giant chunk of metal, wrapped in a sleek finish and illuminated with RGBs out of the wazoo. A box that purs like Ferrari cruising down the highway, with fans that can hit speeds that make a fighter jet jealous. All for the sake of being able to run the latest games at 4K with framerates that make the puny “console peasants” feel nothing short of inadequate. But alas, it’s a gate that’s guarded by one of the most powerful forces known to mankind: money.
Building a truly capable gaming PC is no cheap feat, hence why some folks (like myself) simply have to settle with more modest machines that can do “just enough”. But, if you’ve ever dreamed of owning a super rig, now you can build one as powerful as your heart desires with PC Building Simulator, which has just been released on consoles. No, this is not a joke.
PC Building Simulator somehow became relatively popular on Steam a little while back. For even stranger reasons, the developers at The Regular Corporation thought it would be a good idea to port it over to consoles. Something tells me that the user base differs in taste, but that’s neither here nor there since it’s already been done. Here’s the release trailer:
I know what you’re thinking—”W-why is this even a thing?” I concur; the satisfaction of constructing a virtual rig most certainly pales in comparison to actually having one. Nevertheless, as the trailer points out, this can at least serve as a step-by-step guide to constructing one. And with this being on the Switch, you can even have the grand 3D blueprints in the palm of your hands should the day ever come where you set down the path of joining the elite class known as the “PC Master Race.”
Please note: A lot of the wording in this news piece was meant to be sarcastic, though the release of PC Building Simulator on Switch is very much real.
