There is probably no game coming out in the month of October that I’m anticipating more than Bethesda’s upcoming horror title, The Evil Within, and yesterday Bethesda announced that their game has officially Gone Gold.  Gone Gold is an old gaming term meaning that a developer has completed development of a game and created a Gold Master release on disc which will be used for its mass duplication.

If you would like to know more about the game’s development, I recommend checking out Adam Sessler’s three-part documentary series about the making of the game, which was recently posted.  You can watch it below.

For those of you who are interested, here are the recommended PC technical requirements for the game, as well as the installation requirements for the console versions, pulled directly from Bethesda’s Blog.

Recommended PC System Specifications

  • 64-bit Windows 7/Windows 8
  • i7 with four plus cores
  • 4 GBs RAM
  • 50 GB of hard drive space*
  • GeForce GTX 670 or equivalent with 4GBs of VRAM
  • High Speed Internet Connection
  • Steam account and activation

*It’s worth noting that the 50 GB of space required is for the PC install. When the installation is complete, the game will take up ~41 GB of HDD space.

Console Installation Requirements

  • Xbox One — 40 GB HDD Space
  • PlayStation 4 — 40 GB HDD Space
  • PlayStation 3 — 7 GB HDD Space
  • Xbox 360 — 7 GB  Note: The Evil Within requires a mandatory install to the Xbox 360’s HDD or a USB 2.0 (or higher) flash drive.

The Evil Within is launching October 14th, 2014 on PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PS4.

Earlier this week Apple released an update to iOS 8 devices in the form of update 8.0.1.  It promised to fix several issues with the operating system.  Upon release, it did indeed fix several issues with iOS 8, at the cost of adding several extreme problems with the iPhone 6 family of handsets, and the update was pulled about an hour and a half into its distribution.

Today, Apple released iOS 8.0.2, which promises to fix everything the pulled update was able to fix and includes the added benefit of not breaking the iPhone 6.  If you are currently running iOS 8 or iOS 8.0.1, you should be able to update your iOS device without much issue right now either using iTunes or your device’s Software Update feature.
