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.

"Low fov haters", I roll my eyes a bit when I see stuff like that. Also the word hater is my candidate for most overused and least understood word of the past year.

Thankfully it's a non issue for this game since the developers were smart enough to recognize FOV adjustment on the PC is an oft requested feature for a reason.

Yes, the reason being a ton of people have motion sickness issues or are used to a higher FOV from years of Quake matches or whatever. I am not denying that and am happy we have the choice.

What I said was it annoys me when you guys act like it's a fact that higher is better, or that every PC gamer agrees with you. We do not.

I don't get how you deny the very video someone posted here as inaccurate and say "it's because you played Quake!"

Dude, the brain expects to see a certain field of view. A monitor becomes like a window. If you don't see as much as you're supposed to the brain gets... mixed.
Music for the discerning:
