BioShock Infinite PC Q&A

The Irrational Games Website now features a Q&A on the recently revealed specs for the PC edition of BioShock Infinite, their upcoming first-person shooter sequel. There are a few answers covering Steam support, saying that Steam is required, Steam's standard DRM will be used, and boxed copies will include Steam keys. They also say the game will have full widescreen support and will be able to play at the maximum framerate supported by your system, and discuss OS support, saying it will be Window 8 "compatible" and not "certified," and that there will be no Windows XP support.

New Wildman Video; Tiers

A sixth update to the Kickstarter for Wildman offers a fourth video about Gas Powered Games' proposed action/RPG, discussing "how to fit an RTS into an action-RPG." The update also features some dinosaur concept art from the game, as well as details on new $5 and $10 support tiers, filling an odd niche for people who want to support the game without the promise of actually playing the release version. Thanks Seiya.

Out of the Blue

Yesterday I made the batch of chili I mentioned I was working up to, and am pleased with the outcome. The main difference from my last published version of the recipe was a further change to the order of things, as I added the peppers earlier and the flour/chili powder combo last, which makes more sense to me. The pepper setup was five habanero peppers, one ghost pepper, and one 7oz can of chipotles for 7 lbs of meat, which turned out great for MrsBlue and me, though would probably be a little too hot for most tastes.
