News: For Valve is the Steam controller both a blessing and a curse?
     Fri, Apr 18 2014 | 10:04A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Valve`s Steam controller looks great on paper. It promises not just greater accuracy than conventional console gamepads, but also support for point-and-click titles that traditionally required a mouse and keyboard. There`s a downside, though. As TR`s Cyril Kowaliski learned first-hand, the Steam controller has a pretty steep learning curvesteep enough, perhaps, to put off some potential converts."

Tt eSPORTS Level 10 M Hybrid Gaming Mouse
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 11:32A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gaming mice may be a rather new addition to PC peripherals (always compared to others) but that hasn`t really stopped manufacturers from developing and releasing a huge number of models up until today from basic ones aimed at casual users and up to blazing fast and extremely accurate ones designed primarily for serious gamers and professionals. As mentioned in previous reviews however there aren`t that many feature-rich models currently in the market that also combine blazing fast speeds with wireless connectivity and although i have to admit that i was never into using wireless keyboards and mice (mainly due to signal issues in the past) most people i know do. Tt eSPORTS is also rather new in this industry but in the short period they`ve been around they have released more gaming mice models than any other manufacturer to date and so they naturally possess a great deal of knowledge involving the development of such peripherals (they also know what sells). Today on our test bench we have a gaming peripheral that we never really thought they`d develop and we are talking about no other than their latest achievement the Level 10M Wireless Gaming Mouse. "

Infinite Crisis Beta Video Game Review
     Wed, Apr 16 2014 | 10:04A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Infinite Crisis is a DC comics hero based multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA). Developed by Turbine Inc., in conjunction with Warner Brothers Entertainment Inc. This is sure to get DC comics fans pumped! Currently the game has servers in North America, Europe, and Russia. I?m not sure on future plans for expansion in Asian or South American regions."

AMD Mantle Performance: Thief & Battlefield 4
     Wed, Apr 16 2014 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The biggest news for Mantle since being announced as a method of improving performance in games by allowing them to use your CPU and GPU more efficiently, has been support from DICE's Frostbite 3 engine (and by extension, Battlefield 4). Recently that support expanded to Eidos' Thief, while Crytek revealed at GDC 2014 that CryEngine will support it too. AMD says its latest update is of "tremendous benefit to a large cross-section of the gaming public" so we are keen to check it out.

Func MS-3 Revision 2 Gaming Mouse Review
     Tue, Apr 15 2014 | 4:16P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“We heard rumblings of a newer version of the original Func MS-3 gaming mouse, with the latest set to promise gamers a more advanced laser engine, higher DPI, and better quality internals. So we had to get one to study more closely for ourselves. Func now has the MS-3 Revision 2, a refresh of a winning formula that captures the same outstanding ergonomics while bringing new guts to a smartly designed body. And as an added bonus, we'll also be examining the Func Surface 1030² L, an update of a double-sided gaming mouse pad that now comes with a few new and interesting features. Can the MS-3 Revision 2 and Surface 1030² L improve upon the predecessors without losing its original appeal? Let's find out.”

ROCCAT Siru Gaming Mousepad Review
     Mon, Apr 14 2014 | 11:32A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Optical and laser mice will work fine on just about any smooth surface they encounter. So what is the point of a mousepad? To answer that question we would need a science lesson so we will sum it up with one word: Friction. Everyone has their own preference and ROCCAT has many different gaming surfaces to cater to those needs. Today, Benchmark Reviews will be testing the ROCCAT Siru Pitch Black Desk Fitting Gaming Mousepad model# ROC-13-070. The Siru mousepad is unlike any mousepad I have seen before, it is a high speed wafer thin surface and is truly non-slip thanks to an innovative backing surface. Read on to find out more."

Logitech G19s @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Apr 14 2014 | 11:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With so many keyboard options on the market these days it`s really surprising that there hasn`t been very much competition with Logitech`s gaming line of keyboards with their display screens on them. This past year Logitech went through and refreshed their gaming lineup including the G19s with its full color screen. Having a screen on your keyboard can be a little gimmicky but considering how popular they have been for Logitech I was excited to see what they did with the G19s."

DXRacer M-Series Game Chair @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Apr 14 2014 | 9:55A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ive spoken about it in a few previous reviews but its really important to remember that there are a few things beyond your PC itself that will really improve your gaming experience. A few of the obvious examples are your keyboard and mouse but there are others that you might not even consider. A perfect example of something that most people skimp on is their chair. The ironic thing is that your chair is used more than any other product at your desk. As someone who spends both their work and recreational time in front of a PC, a high quality chair is even more important. I have been using the same racing style office chair for nearly 10 years now, after being repaired multiple times the chair has seen better days. When I came across the chairs from a company called DXRacer they fit the bill perfectly. Lets see if their M-Series Gaming Chair can keep me gaming for the next 10 years."

ROCCAT Kone Pure Gaming Mouse @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Apr 13 2014 | 7:10P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Everyone has their short list of preferred gaming mice for various reasons and we rarely step outside our comfort zone with these choices, which is why I was excited when Wes offered me the opportunity to take a look at a gaming mouse from ROCCAT. It was an opportunity to take a look at something different from a company we have heard encouraging things about as of late and try out a gaming mouse that offered nearly infinite customization. Join me as I take a look at the Kone Pure and see if its deserving of joining our personal short list."

Cooler Master CM Storm Xornet Gaming Mouse Review @ Tweaknews
     Sun, Apr 13 2014 | 10:04A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
CM Storm has proven once again that a quality gaming mouse doesn`t have to carry a hefty price tag. For under $30 the Xornet provides the right amount of buttons, features, and quality parts to appeal to FPS gamers on a budget. If you prefer a claw-grip style of mouse and don`t mind it being lightweight, the Xornet is an excellent choice."

NVIDIA F2P Bundle (2014) Review
     Sat, Apr 12 2014 | 7:10P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Heroes of Newerth requires investing a bit more time into each match as they can run from twenty minutes on up, and also has a steep learning curve for a new player. If you can climb that curve or have friends to help you, this is going to be a good game for someone looking for a more team-based and deeper game than Warface."

Frame Rating: Battlefield 4 Mantle CrossFire Early Performance with FCAT
     Thu, Apr 10 2014 | 7:10P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With Mantle, and the upcoming DirectX 12 API, taking advantage of the low level access to the GPU means that developers are going to be more responsible for multi-GPU implementations than ever before. What we are seeing here today from a world-class developer like DICE is the potential struggle that we could see moving forward until something is standardized or ironed out. BF4`s Mantle multi-GPU implementation is kind of messy still, though we can clearly see the progress from February and the potential moving forward."

Sapphire R9 280X VaporX Graphics Card Review @ Bjorn3D
     Wed, Apr 09 2014 | 9:29A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire as we all know is AMDs premier partner so we always see cool stuff coming from them, but honestly we had already seen a VaporX 280X so we have all simply been waiting for what would come next such as the much rumored 295X or another 290X iteration. To my surprise I got hands on with a newer VaporX 280X model card which is actually a whole new configuration and looks very much like the Toxic model we looked at some time ago now sporting the Tri-X cooler. However this card carries blue hints instead of the orange from the Toxic model which actually looks really good in my opinion."

AMD Mantle & TrueAudio Patch for THIEF Tested
     Fri, Apr 04 2014 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While Battlefield 4 was the first game to support Mantle, Thief by Square Enix is the first game to support both Mantle and TrueAudio. TrueAudio is implemented to enhance environmental sound effects. This was done by taking a snapshot of the echo characteristics of a real-world location and importing it into software to be translated into how the sound should react within the games environments. Let's take a look at how Mantle affects the performance of Thief, and whether TrueAudio can enhance the games audio.

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
