OK, I have validated the steam files, reinstalled the game numerous times, updated my video card drivers, restarted my computer and still nothing.
here are my specs, maybe someone can help.
(ITS NOT MY GRAPHICS CARD!!)
-AMD Radeon HD 7800 series
-Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz
-8.00 GB ram
(all I can find at the moment)
