Today, Microsoft revealed their next console, dubbed the Xbox One. Their unveiling took the opposite approach to Sony’s, as they shied away from big video game reveals in favor of system specs, apps, the upgraded Kinect, new controller, and sports. Lots of sports.
Let’s get familiar with the Xbox One, after the break.
There is always a fear in the hearts of PC gamers who have a raggedy old run down gaming rig. Whenever a new game is coming out you wonder if your PC can handle it. Well if you want to know if yours will be able to play Metro: Last Light upon its May 14th release, you’ll have to head past the break to find out. The game is set to take advantage of the new 4A Engine as well as Direct X11 graphics cards, Nvidia 3D support and more.
In case you’re wondering if your computer can handle the PC version of BioShock Infinite, you’ve come to the right place. Head past the break for the minimum required, and recommended PC specs.

Included in the edition is BioShock and BioShock 2 and DLC totaling over $40.00 worth of stuff. And you get it for the low low price of $30.00. Don’t forget to head past the break!
Warner Home Video announced Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, starring Johnny Depp, for home video on October 2 a few weeks back. And now they’ve gotten around to releasing the artwork.
“The story focuses on Barnabas Collins (Depp), who was transformed into a vampire by a jilted lover (Eva Green’s witch Angelique) way back in the 1700s and buried. He’s just been dug up, and attempts to reintegrate with his descendants, led by Michelle Pfeiffer’s Elizabeth and Jonny Lee Miller’s Roger – despite the fact that Angelique is still around and still not in a forgiving mood.” write your review here.
The DVD will contain the featurette The Collinses: Every Family Has Its Demons and the the Blu-ray will have that featurette, a Maximum Movie Mode option, plus a ton of deleted scenes. Maybe the deleted scenes will help the movie make sense? Look for it in stores on October 2nd.

Did you hear? Nintendo’s next console has been unveiled and it’s capable of some pretty cool things. Sure, it looks like a Wii with rounded edges and its controller doesn’t look like the most confortable thing you could hold for hours on end – if you’re focusing on those things than you’re missing the point. The Wii U is Nintendo’s attempt at satisfying us, the hardcore market, and with the lineup of games the system has for it so far (more on that later), it looks like they might be on the right path to capturing the hearts of people who aren’t soccer moms, retired or can’t legally drive.
We’ve covered some of the important features and the many ways you can play it, but there’s still plenty we haven’t discussed. I’m talking about the games you can expect on the console and the specs, or at least the ones Nintendo has revealed so far. Head past the break to get in the know. READ MORE
Crysis 2 is a paltry two months away, less than that even, but if you find your impatience getting the better of you I suggest watching this rather sexy new trailer for the game. It’s also important to note the game’s demo is out now on the Xbox 360 so if you’re still on the fence about whether or not you like controlling a badass dude who curb stomps aliens you can see if it’s your cup ‘o tea.
The game’s due out on March 23 in The States and two days later for those across the pond and unlike its predecessor the game’s multiplatform so you can get your Crysis fix whether you own a PS3, 360 or PC. Head past the break for the minimum specs for playing it on the latter as well as that trailer I was talking about. READ MORE
