Assassin's Creed Origins Full Experience
     Mon, Oct 15 2018 | 2:13P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At the end of it, is Assassin's Creed Origins, with its DLC, worth playing? I think it is. I found it overall to be quite fun, but I feel like this complete experience might be one best gotten on sale (like I did). The base game is fun and enjoyable, but does have some annoyances to it (the lock-on camera, at times confusing narrative, and the non-Trireme Aya gameplay). The Hidden Ones DLC gives a good look at the start of the Assassin Brotherhood precursor, and some pains it suffered as it started. The Curse of the Pharaohs is more about Egypt, and its religion, so while I did have fun with it, it does not really seem to build onto the Assassin's Creed story. It builds onto the game and is an enjoyable exploration of Egyptian mythology, but otherwise does nothing more than maybe adding another First Civilization artifact to the world."

Forza Horizon 4
     Sun, Oct 07 2018 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Racing title Forza Horizon 4 is arriving to digital store shelves this week worldwide (October 2) and to work out what kind of GPU power you'll need to enjoy it we've tested about 50 graphics cards, so we have a big GPU benchmark incoming.https://www.techspot.com/review/1716-forza-horizon-4-gpu-benchmarks/

Creed Odyssey: Benchmark Performance Analysis
     Thu, Oct 04 2018 | 3:36P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Assasin's Creed: Odyssey is this year's version of the epic series and takes you to ancient Greece. We tested the game at 1080p, 1440p and 4K using a large selection of graphics cards, including RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti. We also investigated VRAM requirements and CPU performance scaling.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider: analysis
     Thu, Oct 04 2018 | 3:35P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

EWin Flash Series Computer Gaming Chair
     Mon, Oct 01 2018 | 3:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After spending some time in the Flash XL, it becomes clear that a good chair is important, especially if you spend much time on your computer. The Flash XL, like the Champion, is whisper quiet. I could shift my weight from side to side, forward and back, and move all around and not hear any sounds. For me, that is a big plus. I can't stand a noisy chair. I can say that once you use a chair like this, there is no going back. And again, as I experienced with the Champion, the quality and workmanship on the Flash XL are excellent."

Shadow of the Tomb Raider
     Fri, Sep 28 2018 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Tomb Raider series of games has long been recognized as a classic, so when it received a reboot in 2013 with Tomb Raider, many fans and gamers in general were likely skeptical at first, but it proved to be a good game and strong entry in the franchise. It was followed up by Rise of the Tomb Raider and now we have the finale to the reboot trilogy, Shadow of the Tomb Raider. The stakes are high in this one as Lara must fight against Trinity, an organization bent on controlling the world using powers protected by ancient cultures, and now those powers could allow it to remake the world as it wishes. Also, with it being the third game in this new set of stories for introducing and developing Lara Croft into the Tomb Raider, it will likely have a significant impact on the series going forward."

Star Control: Origins
     Thu, Sep 27 2018 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Is Star Control: Origins a game to get you travelling the stars? In its current form, I would say yes, but you should know what to expect. I do feel it needs some changes to achieve the potential it presented to me, but even in the state I experienced, it is still enjoyable. The fact that you may be able to play it on a modern laptop (at least more modern and powerful than mine) is also intriguing as this could be a good game to take with you for when you have time to kill. Just be mindful that it can hit that 'just one more time' button. The graphics are good and the performance is also pretty good, though some areas can stress the system, at least at maximum settings. Perhaps with optimization patches and Vulkan API support this will change, but until they come, it is impossible for me to say what is possible. The story did not leave me particularly well impressed, but the characters of the species I found enjoyable, and the use of distinct fonts I appreciate. The gameplay can definitely be fun but there are weaknesses I hope will be addressed in time to really let the game shine as I think it can."

Battlefield V Open Beta: PC
     Wed, Sep 26 2018 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink

In this quick article, we'll check out some graphics cards with Battlefield V Open Beta. The performance is a mixed bag, the however is shaping up to be something really good.

SteelSeries QcK Limited
     Wed, Sep 26 2018 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SteelSeries sure knows how to produce top of the line mouse pads as they have been in this industry for over 17 years. Their newest addition is the QcK Limited, which offers a very smooth, micro-woven surface and stitched edges. It comes in two sizes as there is a QcK+ Limited available that is of the same size as other QcK+ models.

Sunmae Gaming Chair Review
     Sat, Sep 22 2018 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Over the past year we’ve reviewed a handful of different gaming chairs. These were from brands that were quite well known. Recently we’ve been contacted from quite a few companies selling gaming chairs on Amazon who we had never heard of before. The prices are quite low too. While we originally turned down these offers to review such chairs, we decided to check one out to see if there was a difference between these chairs and the name brand chairs we’ve already taken a look at. So today we have the Sunmae Gaming Chair, which comes in at $164 on Amazon, making one of the cheapest gaming chairs available."

Logitech G305 Review
     Sat, Sep 22 2018 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One more stand-out feature is the up to 250 hours of battery life when using a AA battery, that is partially thanks to the technology mentioned above and the software that can alter the G305’s behaviour to make it even more efficient.

noblechairs HERO Review
     Sat, Sep 22 2018 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we look at the HERO, with several additions, most importantly of which is the increased size, now catering for the larger person. Padding is also increased, to help support heavier people, with a maximum quoted weight of 180KG (roughly 28 stone).

Collective Minds VR Showcase PS4 charging stand
     Wed, Sep 19 2018 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Anyone with a PlayStation VR set-up will inevitably find themselves with a lot of controllers, all of which need charging. To complicate matters, the older Move controllers have a different charging port to the Dualshock controllers, so even if you only charge one device at a time you need at least two cables, all of which can be messy and time consuming.

EasySMX Wireless ESM-9013
     Tue, Sep 18 2018 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
EasySMX is probably not something that you’ll think of buying peripherals from unless you have some experience with it. Sometimes, it is unfortunate because much smaller brands do have some good products to use it with. This is its ESM-9013 wireless game controller that light in weight and light in the pocket. I haven’t use gamepads for a very long time so it should be interesting as a PC user how this goes.?
