Is it woman enough, too?

If you've been shamelessly gearing up for Wolfenstein: The New Order like me, you're probably ready to get your hands on the game by now. If you want to get your affairs in order and get your PC and/or consoles ready for its release, check out the handy system requirements posted by Bethesda today for whatever you choose to play on below.

What do you think? Are you ready to get your gibbing on, or do you need to pick up a new video card? Heard you could get Watch Dogs that way. I'm hoping against hope The New Order will at least deliver a teeny tiny bit of the good, old-fashioned Nazi-hunting fun I'm searching for. If you're ready to pull the trigger, pre-order on Steam for the May 20 release on PC. That's two days after my birthday, by the way.
