I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Microsoft Surface Can Run PC Games, Civ V

Posted on Tuesday, June 19 @ 08:10:31 Eastern by



Last night, Microsoft pulled back the curtain on their new iPad killer, the Microsoft Surface. The 10.6-inch tablet will run Windows 8 and feature specs that will give Apple its first real run for its money as an iPad competitor. Microsoft, however, didn't delve into specifics about gaming.

Still, Eric Neustadter of Xbox Live Operations claims that Surface can run PC games thanks to the Windows 8 OS, and that Surface will be the "greatest Civilization-playing device known to mankind". He also adds that "the iPad can't play Civ 4 or Civ 5".

It's still early, and with Microsoft currently leading the home console market, more official details on how gaming will fit in with Surface are sure to follow in the coming weeks. For now, at least according to Neustadter, Surface will run current PC games.

Tell GR: If Surface can indeed run PC games, would you consider buying it?
