The Witness, a puzzle focused game by Jonathan Blow and his studio, now has official system requirements released

The Witness is the brainchild of Braid creator Jonathan Blow and while no extended gameplay videos are available its supposedly a very sophisticated puzzle game with systems that slowly build upon themselves to create more and more complex puzzles.

And despite the release date looming ever closer the system requirements are some of the biggest pieces of news that the Witness team released in recent time. Here's what type of a rig you will need:

These are today's steam sale recommendations, dated for December 22

Much like how it went down last time the Steam Sale Recommendations are here to showcase you the best deals and most interesting games available in today's Steam Winter Sale. 

Given that this Steam Sale doesn't actually have sales spread across different days I will focus on the first two sections which rotate daily and as such will give you a nice and broad spectrum of games. Naturally, if I come upon a deal that isn't a part of the first two sections but I believe is well worth your time, rest assured I will let you know.

With that said, let's start with the first day of the Steam Winter sale:

Humble Square Enix Bundle 3 is released and its filled with some really great games

I don't tend to cower these sort of bundles very often, mostly because they're filled with gaff, but today's one has a lot of value packed in so I figured I would share it with you guys.

The recently released Humble Square Enix Bundle 3 will set you back a "maximum" of $8,99 and for that you'll get some really amazing games that will keep you entertained for for good long while. Here's a quick overview of what I feel are the stand-out games in the pack:

The VR headset Oculus Rift is progressing as scheduled and preorders are set to begin in early 2016, most likely January

In the light of recent HTC Vive delays its good to see that the Oculus Rift is still on track because even though I probably won't be among the earliest adopters I am still incredibly excited for all of the gaming doors VR tech will open.

In a conversation on twitter Palmer Luckey, original founder of Oculus VR, talked about the current progress of the Rift as well as when you can expect preorders to become available. Here are the full quotes:

That Dragon, Cancer is a game about the experiences of two parents who had to endure the tragedy that is childhood cancer

When I set out to check my email today I didn't expect I'd see a piece of news that would simultaneously make me both depressed as well as oddly happy.

That Dragon, Cancer is a game that takes you through the terrifying experience of having a child with cancer from the perspective of the parents that actually had to go through it themselves. The one happy note in all of this is that its coming out on January 12th, Joel's birthday, as a digital memorial for him and his struggles.

After being delayed due to bugs Aviary Attorney is now released on Steam

Aviary Attorney was supposed to release last week, December 18 to be specific, but due to a rather big bug with the save system it was delayed until recently. Given that many have waited over a year for it to arrive since its Kickstarter campaign concluded the extra few days passed easily.

Now, with Aviary Attorney finally released you will be able to find out what exactly Victorian era birds know about law and justice. I will have a first impressions article/video later tonight or tomorrow morning but for now here's a short overview of what Aviary Attorney is:

Awesomenauts expansion Overdrive is adding 4 characters, a new map, new matchmaking and leveling system as well as a graphical update

I was really in to Awesomenauts a year or so ago, it being one of the few MOBA games I can play without a full team of friends and still feel like I'm actually accomplishing anything, but I slowly phased it out as other games came along. What's great however is that even though I forgot it exists, the community in Awesomenauts has been apparently stable enough to warrant an expansion.

So I am happy to let you know that Awesomenauts - Overdrive has been announced bringing with it better graphics, three new heroes, better matchmaking and server stability, a new map and finally, a community designed hero.

Bandai Namco has announced God Eater 1 and 2 as well as One Piece Burning Blood as 2016 PC summer releases

Ever since that fateful Dark Souls petition that got Bandai Namco to first consider PC gaming as an actual thing they've been porting everything they could with some some great success.

And today they've been on an especially large announcement spree, first showcasing Tales of Berseria and now announcing both God Eater games as well as One Piece: Burning Blood as upcoming PC titles in 2016.

Killer Instinct and Gears of War will be crossing over to PC in early 2016 according to Phil Spencer, Xbox head

Killer Instinct and Gears of War Ultimate Edition were confirmed as Windows 10 releases during this years E3 but not a single peep was said about their potential release date.

Now, in a twitter response of all things, Xbox head Phil Spencer announced that the Killer Instinct and Gears of War will be making their transition to PC relatively early in 2016. Here's the full quote:
