The on-again, off-again … and then on-again nature of the demanding PC specs for gives the team plenty of excuse for some specs-ulation (sorry,) this week. Even joined in with a strange, Nvidia-published claim about needing 6GB of RAM as a minimum. Maybe it’s for all that dog and fish AI? Who knows.

Valve didn’t want to be left out, so they also released some specs. Not for Half-Life 3, obviously, that would be insane. But instead for the 300 prototype Steam Machines that will go out to beta testers in the near-ish future.

If specs aren’t your thing, maybe building large cities is? Well, tough luck there if you own . Maxis has finally admitted after a long hard campaign of misinformation and confusion that, in fact, no, cities in the game will not be getting any larger. Offline mode is “being explored” though.

Speaking of games removing horrible, unwanted aspects of themselves, managed to disengage itself from Games for Windows Live this week. It also gave away a bunch of DLC to people who already owned the game.

Elsewhere, Square announced a pair of potentially interesting, potentially heartbreaking titles: a new Deus Ex (plus some weird thing called ) and a Sleeping Dogs-except not called . The podcast eagerly and fearfully awaits developments on those fronts.

This week, Peter has been playing with Gareth Bale’s balls in and Paul’s been having trouble with religion in ’s beta. Maybe Tim can give him some tips?
