Ever wanted to get into building your own computers but found the process intimidating? Or maybe you just want hone your skill and simulate building some of the most powerful machines in the world without the financial burden. You can with The Irregular Corporation’s, PC Building Simulator – out now for PlayStation 4 other consoles.
What I’m showing you today is just the beginning of story mode and not the part of the game that allows you to build whatever you want yet. For now, I wanted to ease into the game and take the route most beginning players would take and that’s story mode where you’ll learn about computer repair.
In story mode, you take over your Uncle Tim’s PC workshop after he mysteriously skips town. You’ll need to successfully repair and upgrade customers’ machines just to keep the lights on. Start small, then go big as you master some of the most technical elements of PC building, creating some seriously impressive machines in the process.
PC Building Simulator incorporates over 1000 real world parts from manufacturers including Intel, AMD, NVIDIA, ASUS, Deepcool, EKWB and NZXT. The game also features realistic BIOS and OS simulation, licensed 3DMark benchmarking and simulated overclocking, resulting in an incredibly extensive list of options and configurations for players looking to simulate real-world builds as closely as possible.
Some of you might be wondering exactly how fun can it be simulating the process of building a PC on a console, and let me just say, it ain’t that bad at all. In fact, I’ve played the PC version of this game too and the PS4 version seems to run pretty smoothly and playing with a controller is pretty darn simple. Plus, on the PS4, you don’t have to worry about whether or not the game will run correctly on your PC because your specs aren’t up to par.
Anyways, I’ve only had a chance so far to play about 3 in-game days of story mode and I’m enjoying it so far. I like the time and money management aspect of the game as well as actually going in and fixing computers. While the process is simplified, it does seem quite accurate and I like the real world aspect of it all. The controls are super easy to master with everything you need on screen at all times.
What I don’t like however is the soundtrack. It’s not terrible, but it gets annoying after a while and I’d honestly just turn the music off or at lease turn it way down. It’s not the type of music I’d listen to if I were building a PC in real life and I’d rather just not listen to anything at all. That’s honestly the only real negative I can say about PC Building Simulator so far.
Aside from that, I’m having a good time with PC Building Simulator. I think this would be a great game to help me brush up on the PC building skill as well as keep up-to-date on the latest PC parts on the market, as long as the game gets updated often. I’m also trying to get my kid to play this so he can learn how to build PCs as well before moving on to the real thing.
More on this game at a later time once I check out the other game modes in PC Building Simulator.
