Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
     Mon, Dec 11 2017 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”The graphics are good with some effects really standing out as impressive to me while performance is second-to-none for games in their launch or near-launch state. The story is weak with a number of missed opportunities, in-game spoiled twists, and a failure to connect me to the game world and motivating me to move forward. The gameplay is fun but has missed opportunities and fails to motivate me to keep playing to achieve game-changing weapons and upgrades.”

Corsair MM800 RGB Polaris Gaming Mouse Pad Review
     Sun, Dec 10 2017 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you are a serious gamer you know that your gaming surface is very important part of your gaming setup. A mouse pad can make all the different between turning that corner faster, getting that headshot, and overall having a better gaming experience. While mouse pads have remained pretty much the same over the past few years, recently with RGB lighting becoming popular we’ve seen it integrated into mouse pads. Corsair’s implementation is their MM80 RGB Polaris, which is a large mouse pad with RGB lighting around it and you also get an extra USB port to plug in your mouse. Since this is a Corsair product you can fully customize the lighting with Corsair’s CUE software. Let’s jump in and see what this mouse pad is all about!"

the game Songbringer
     Sat, Dec 09 2017 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”At the end of the day, Songbringer is fun, but at the same time it is not an easy recommendation for me to make. I want to recommend it, but I feel like it needs to be with the warning that the most enjoyment will either come from repeated playthroughs to learn everything you need to know, or by researching the same information on the Internet. The latter is not ideal and the former could be appealing for some. If it is not appealing to you, then this might not be the game for you.”

HP Spectre x360 (2017) Review
     Thu, Dec 07 2017 | 5:37P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We could have predicted that HP would refresh its laptop lineup after Intel introduced its 8th Generation Core processor family in mobile form (Kaby Lake Refresh, or Kaby Lake-R, not to be confused with Coffee Lake on the desktop). By extension, our crystal ball, if we had one, would have also told us the new lineup would be faster than the previous generation, especially in multi-threaded applications where upgrading from a dual-core 7th Generation CPU to a quad-core 8th Generation chip would pay the biggest dividends. But what we could not have foreseen is that subtle changes beyond swapping out the engine that drives its systems would add up to an appreciably superior experience. Spoiler—it did...

ASUS TUF Z370-Pro Gaming review
     Wed, Dec 06 2017 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the new ASUS TUF Z370-Pro Gaming motherboard. At a price of €179, the newly designed TUF sits in the mainstream segment. It has the TUF styling, yet was made to be a bit more affordable. And that shows with its unusual yellow/orange striping.

Rating methodology for PC-based game
     Mon, Dec 04 2017 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Console game performance has always been an area that we've been interested in here at PC Perspective but has been mostly out of our reach to evaluate with any kind of scientific tilt. Our Frame Rating methodology for PC-based game analysis relies on having an overlay application during screen capture which is later analyzed by a series of scripts. Obviously, we can not take this approach with consoles as we cannot install our own code on the consoles to run that overlay. Recently, we came across an open source project which aims to address this. Trdrop is an open source software built upon OpenCV, a stalwart library in the world of computer vision. Using OpenCV, trdrop can analyze the frames of ordinary gameplay (without an overlay), detecting if there are differences between two frames, looking for dropped frames and tears to come up with a real-time frame rate.

OCC has published a review on Absolver
     Sun, Dec 03 2017 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Is Absolver a game to recommend? Yes, I think it is, but for now you need to be the kind of gamer it is targeting, which is one that enjoys being precise. Offline mode may help some imprecise players (more like myself) but otherwise, you may want to wait for a sale. I also do want to mention that I have been playing using keyboard and mouse. I did connect my Dual Shock 4 as it has very well designed buttons, but found it more comfortable to remain on KB/M.”

Ignore the Pixel 2 XL. Buy the Pixel 2 Instead
     Sat, Dec 02 2017 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Issues with the Pixel 2 XL have overshadowed an awesome alternative on the market right now: the Pixel 2. Yes, it's smaller, and yes, it doesn't have an expansive display. But the Pixel 2 takes all the good parts of the Pixel 2 XL and packages them into an ergonomic frame, while leaving the terrible screen behind.

Rating:
A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
