Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition won't be available for a couple of months still, so consider this the appropriate time to look over the game's system requirements courtesy of Steam. They are reasonable, though that's to be expected.

  • OS: Windows XP , Windows Vista, Windows 7, or newer
  • Processor: 2.6 GHz Dual-Core
  • Memory: 1 GB (XP), 2GB (Vista/7)
  • Hard Disk Space: 4 GB
  • Video Card: 512 MB RAM, ATI Radeon 4850 or higher, NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT or higher
  • DirectX: 9.0c
  • Sound: Direct Sound Compatible

Despite some concerns over the potential quality of this port, I have a feeling plenty of us impatient types will still end up getting it if for no other reason than the bonus content. Using that as an excuse to play Dark Souls again isn't such a bad thing.

Persona 5 is coming to PS4, gets first trailer

Atlus' YouTube has our first look at Persona 5, which appears to have a ruffled brown haired boy protagonist and subways. Not a lot to get excited about aside from the fact that Persona 5 is exciting inherently. Though there was an announcement of a PS4 version of the previously PS3-restricted title. Makes sense. more

Costume Quest 2 is still cute, trying to be more engaging

Costume Quest, like every Double Fine game, is charming. It's a fresh-feeling, low stakes take on the JRPG genre, more Earthbound than Final Fantasy. Though, as Chad put it in his review, it's "RPG Lite," accessible...more
