"GRID offers a number of events with various races within them to attempt, eventually leading up to Showdowns. These events include Touring, Stock, Tuner, and GT races as well as a Fernando Alonso career line of races where you challenge his esports team. Once you complete four showdowns you can enter the GRID World Series and truly prove your skills. Of course, there are means to tweak the difficulty to make it easier or harder, depending on your skills and tastes."

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince
     Fri, Oct 18 2019 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Depending on the size of your game library, you may have a number of games you recognize as being good, based on what you have seen or heard, but have yet to play them. Both Trine and Trine 2 are in that category for me, but now Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is safely among my played games. Once again the Heroes of Trine are called upon to save the day, which in this case revolves around rescuing Selius, a prince with great magic potential from his nightmares. With the boxes of Amadeus the Wizard, the sword and shield of Pontius the Knight, and ropes and arrows of Zoya the Thief you must track down Selius, defeat the nightmares realized around him, and solve quite a number of puzzles."

Gears 5 Review: UE4 Performance, Guts And Glory Explored
     Mon, Sep 23 2019 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gears 5 officially drops on Tuesday, September 10th, but if you've got Xbox Ultimate Game Pass or Xbox Game Pass for PC you may have already played quite a bit of it. The newest Xbox One and PC exclusive launched for Microsoft's subscription service on Friday. The Coalition's newest Gears title brings with it a whole host of new graphical effects and HDR lighting to both the console and PC alike, thanks to the latest iteration of Epic's Unreal Engine 4. We took the PC version for a spin and spent some time testing how the latest Gears title runs...

Siege of Centauri
     Mon, Sep 16 2019 | 3:46P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Games that first launch through some kind of early access program are a bit of a conundrum for me, when it comes to reviewing them. A game can change quite significantly between that first version and its release state, so opinions and impressions may lose validity. When Siege of Centauri entered Steam Early Access and I was provided a key by Stardock, I thought of an approach that might help me navigate the issue and that was to use it for the Saturday streams I do. That way I not only am somewhat regularly playing the game and experiencing the changes it receives, but also capturing my impressions of the game (when I am not trying to cover some of the news of the week). If nothing else, it seemed like a good idea and now the time has come to review Siege of Centauri in its release state."

Control: A Visually Stunning Ray Traced Gem Of A Game Explored
     Sun, Sep 08 2019 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Remedy's latest third-person adventure doesn't ship until tomorrow, and you can safely read this article without fear of spoiling the adventure. Since Control's experience is built on a sense of adventure and mystery, plot spoilers would completely ruin the fun. To avoid that, we captured all of our screenshots and performed all of our tests in the first 20 minutes of the game. We won't show any areas that Remedy hasn't already unveiled in the game's official trailers, and we won't discuss any plot points. You're here to see how the game runs on modern hardware and how it looks with all the effects turned up to 11, and we want to save the plot for you to experience on your own...

Gears 5 Benchmark Test & Performance Analysis
     Fri, Sep 06 2019 | 2:39P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gears 5 is the latest release in the epic game series that used to be an Xbox exclusive. We thoroughly test this Unreal Engine 4 based game on 23 graphics cards at three resolutions, including 4K Ultra HD. Both AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards do very well here.

Nitro Concepts S300 EX Gaming Chair
     Thu, Sep 05 2019 | 4:27P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In a nutshell, the Nitro Concepts S300 EX is a well-constructed and comfortable gaming chair that's quite affordable. The option to choose from a variety of colors is also nice, as is the soft PU cover. Thanks to its steel frame it should very durable, too.

TRIPLE Monitor gaming – GIGABYTE CV27F / Thrustmaster
     Thu, Sep 05 2019 | 4:26P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It just so happens we have been sent the perfect combination of products for review to create the ultimate racing simulator setup! The three 1080p 27 inch Aorus CV27F monitors that Gigabyte sent us are curved and feature a 165 hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, freesync and HDR certification. With a price tag of £359 they don’t come cheap so what are they like to use? TS-PC Racer is Thrustmaster’s top wheel for PC racers. It has been designed to reproduce the car’s response to track conditions using a range of technologies to enhance gaming performance and offer a racing experience closer to reality. This should provide the ultimate level of immersion for gamers but it does come with a very hefty price tag of £499. I put it through it’s paces alongside the T3PA-PRO pedals to see if it’s worth it!

Logitech G915 Premium Wireless Gaming Keyboard
     Thu, Aug 29 2019 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Now let's talk a little bit about the software that Logitech is offering. The Logitech GHub is actually the best software offering from the big peripheral companies that I have used so far. GHub is very easy and straightforward to use. It is laid out in a way that is pleasing to the eye and intuitive in design. As you can see, the G915 has a plethora of different keybinding settings that you can set. You can set commands to open applications or bind macros to your keys to do things in other applications like OBS or Discord. The G915 also sports multiple profiles that you can switch on the fly using the M1-3 buttons on the top of the keyboard. Each of these profiles can be completely different. You can also turn Game Mode on to disable the windows key.”

Metal Wolf Chaos XD
     Tue, Aug 13 2019 | 12:52P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Before getting too far, it is important to note Metal Wolf Chaos XD is best thought of as a re-release, and not a remaster or remake. While some things have been improved, like the textures, the content and experience has been unchanged from the original game. This means the "grandiose" voice overs and localization quirks remain, but alongside the improved textures for modern 1080p and 4K displays, the UI has been redrawn for modern displays, and the voice over has been remastered from the original audio. This means the audio will be of higher quality, but the voices and content have not been changed."
