Fyrst_Igor's Trickster Rogue Build
     Fri, Dec 07 2018 | 4:46P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This is Fyrst_Igor’s Trickster Rogue build. He’s one of the best TRs I know in the game and spends an extensive amount of time testing and working his TR. This build is targeted at doing maximum damage, also known as a “glass cannon.” I recommend having a good tank and a party full of people running Shepherd’s Devotion insignia bonus (but that goes for pretty much any party)."

Revisiting Battlefield V Ray Tracing Performance
     Thu, Dec 06 2018 | 12:05P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After a less than encouraging debut of real-time ray tracing in Battlefield V, Nvidia and DICE have been working together to optimize the game's implementation of DXR. The improvements come in the form of new graphics drivers and a game patch, which collectively Nvidia claims can improve performance as much as 50%. We put those claims to the test.

     Thu, Dec 06 2018 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Russian manufacturer Dark Project has arrived to the gaming mouse market with three mice, and the ME3 is first on our test bench. It comes with a PMW3360 top-of-the-line optical sensor, modular shell design, sleek looking RGB lighting—all this inside a quite familiar, right-handed ergonomic shape.

Darksiders III
     Thu, Dec 06 2018 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Darksiders III is a hack 'n' slash adventure RPG by Gunfire Games, published by THQ Nordic. It's the third in an ever-changing series of games that follows the four horsemen of the apocalypse during an end of the world event that has been incorrectly triggered by the first horseman War.

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden
     Wed, Dec 05 2018 | 5:50P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is a hybrid mix between turn-based strategy and a free-roam RPG. While it takes ideas from the basic concoction of strategy games, it sets itself apart from the group with a nice sprinkling of compelling story and some truly bizarre and unique characters.

     Wed, Dec 05 2018 | 5:30P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
DICE released the Battlefield V Tides of War update today, which includes improvements to NVIDIA RTX raytracing technology. We tested this new version on GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti, showing impressive performance gains.

Posted by: STAFF
MSI's Optix MAG27CQ and MPG27CQ monitors check a lot of boxes on the feature list: 27" curved monitors with 1440p resolutions, FreeSync support, 144Hz refresh rates, and 1ms response times. Let's see how they perform and whether one of them may be a good choice for your next gaming display upgrade

Princess Raviri's Great Weapon Fighter
     Thu, Nov 29 2018 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This is a guide written by Princess Raviri, from the guild Nightswatch. This guide is specifically targeted towards making the biggest, baddest, damage-dealer in the game. Want to know how to get those multi-million damage floaters? This guide will help you do that. A big thanks to Princess Raviri and the other members of Nightswatch for all their testing and information-sharing."

Bomber Crew
     Wed, Nov 28 2018 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Bomber Crew is a strategic bomber game where you micromanage the crew of a Lancaster-Bomber during WWII. It is one of those games with no real story where the challenge comes from keeping your plane in the air without dying to much, and then do it over and over again. If I would make a comparison it would be FTL (Faster than Light) and Sunless Sea. Considering FTL is one of my favourite games of all time and a game I still play from time to time I had great hopes for Bomber Crew. Did it live up to the hype? Well, almost.

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus
     Tue, Nov 27 2018 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus is a Turn Based Strategy game made by Bulwark Studios. Most importantly, in this age of Games Workshop handing out their IP to anyone that bites, it is one of the few Warhammer games made recently that keeps both TBS and Warhammer lore fans happy at the same time.

noblechairs Hero Gaming Chair
     Tue, Nov 27 2018 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The noblechairs Hero features a unique design and solid build quality and promises to be very comfortable even if you happen to weigh over 100 kg. Is it worth its high asking price of $440, though?

Fallout 76 Impressions - An all round learning experience
     Tue, Nov 27 2018 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fallout 76 is a meticulous survival sim interspersed with action and is best played with friends."

Anda Seat's Dark Knight Premium Gaming Chair
     Mon, Nov 26 2018 | 11:58A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"What makes the Anda Seat Dark Knight Premium pretty unique is the pillow design. I've never seen anything like it before. And to be honest, I was skeptical on the levels of comfort of these monstrous neck and lumbar pillows. I was totally in the wrong! The square lumbar cushion works way better than the standard small pillows found in standard issue gaming chairs. It provides better support over a larger area and does not feel awkward while leaning back. The neck pillow, which is about the size of an actual pillow, perfectly fits the natural curves of the spine for optimal comfort."

RIOTORO Ghostwriter Prism Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
     Mon, Nov 26 2018 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Ghostwriter Prism Mechanical Gaming Keyboard by RIOTORO may not tick every single box but it does the ones that really matter

HITMAN 2 game
     Sun, Nov 25 2018 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With HITMAN 2 we continue as Agent 47, the genetically modified assassin that is the best in the world at what he does, finding creative ways to eliminate targets that can even go unnoticed. Of course if you want you could pull out a gun for an elimination, but setting up poisoned food, a car crash, or in one case a less-competent assassin to take out a target without raising suspicion I find can be more interesting and satisfying. This variability and freedom of approach is something that makes the HITMAN franchise as enjoyable and replayable as it is. There are many opportunities in the game world, so spending your time to explore and discover them can be very rewarding."

Assassin's Creed Odyssey game
     Sat, Nov 24 2018 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I am back again following Assassin's Creed Origins with its sequel, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, a title actually set earlier in the game series' universe. From Ancient Egypt we are now in Ancient Greece, following the life of one of two exiled Spartan mercenaries, Kassandra or Alexios. The choice of which you play as is a permanent one, without starting a new game. There are multiple save slots though, so you can play as both without losing your progress with the other. As it has been stated Kassandra is the canon character, she is who I have been playing as. Quickly starting an Alexios playthrough, and seeing something written about the two characters, it seems their stories are reflections of each other, so you should not miss anything too substantive by choosing one over the other."
