REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Final BioShock Infinite System Specs Released, 20GB Mandatory Install

Posted on Tuesday, January 15 @ 11:30:23 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack

Irrational Games is only two months from releasing its next work, BioShock Infinite. Bassed on what we've seen it's going to be a beautiful game, but PC gamers are still left wondering how much work has gone into the PC version.

The system requirements for BioShock Infinite have been finalized, and the recommended specs are moderate. Judging by the information, it's not quite the head-burster that Crysis 3 will be, but it's not afraid to devour your hard drive space. See below for the minimum and recommended system specifications:
MINIMUM
 
OS: Windows Vista Service Pack 2 32-bit
Processor: Intel Core 2 DUO 2.4 GHz / AMD Athlon X2 2.7 GHZ
Memory: 2 GB
Hard Drive: 20 GB free
Video Card: DirectX10 Compatible ATI Radeon 3870 / NVIDIA 8800 GT / Intel HD 3000 Integrated Graphics
Video Card Memory: 512 MB
Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
 
RECOMMENDED
 
OS: Windows 7 Service Pack 1 64-bit
Processor: Quad Core Processor
Memory: 4 GB
Hard Drive: 30 GB free
Video Card: DirectX11 Compatible, ATI Radeon 6950 / NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560
Video Card Memory: 1024 MB
Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
Windows XP's support is beginning to fade away, and so is DirectX 9. While some gamers will be affected by this, DirectX 11's tesselation is noticeable enough to make Windows 7 worth the price tag. Thankfully, Windows 8 is nowhere to be seen. Phew.

In terms of hard drive space, the jump from a massive 20GB to the even larger 30GB hints at optional HD textures. If true, Irrational Games hasn't neglected the PC gaming crowd, granted the game isn't a glitch-fest.

For those of you with gaming rigs, do you meet the recommended specs? Better yet, do you plan to buy this for your PC, console, or even at all?
