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."

Darksiders III Performance Analysis
     Wed, Jul 31 2019 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Darksiders III does not really have any special technical characteristics to it to be concerned with, like support for multiple APIs or special technologies like NVIDIA's RTX or DLSS, which is good if only because the graphs should not be so crowded. There is a 62 FPS limit active by default in the game, but it can be easily changed by editing an INI file, and you can find the instructions on how to make the change at the game's PC Gaming Wiki page. I raised the limit to 300 FPS, which I felt would be high enough to let the GPUs I have reach to their limits."

How 3D Game Rendering Works: Vertex Processing
     Sat, Jul 27 2019 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this first part of our deeper look at 3D game rendering, we'll be focusing entirely on the vertex stage of the process. This means dragging out our math textbooks, brushing up on a spot of linear algebra, matrices, and trigonometry -- oh yeah!

Razer BlackWidow (2019) Gaming Keyboard
     Sat, Jul 27 2019 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Razer BlackWidow is definitely a keyboard you’ve most likely have heard of as Razer first introduced it in 2010. For the 2019 version of the BlackWidow Razer is going for a more affordable route. This full-size keyboard still has Razer’s mechanical key switches, RGB lighting, and that iconic Razer keyboard shape, but missing is a metal chassis, any extra USB ports, and a volume knob. By keeping many of the great features gamers know the BlackWidow for, but taking others out they were able to bring the price of the keyboard down to only $119.99, which is quite low for a full-size RGB mechanical keyboard from Razer."

Darksiders III - Keepers of the Void DLC
     Fri, Jul 26 2019 | 3:38P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Once again I am back in Darksiders III, but this time it is not to analyze its performance on the GPUs I have at my disposal, but to look at its Keepers of the Void DLC. This is the game's second DLC, with the first being The Crucible that I am not looking at. With this DLC, Fury enters the Serpent Holes on the request of Vulgrim to remove a threat that may come to block his free access, and that of the Horsemen who also use them for fast travel. The ultimate reward for this DLC is Fury's Abyssal Armor, but along the way you also earn new weapons for your Hollows."

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Review
     Sun, Jul 21 2019 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink

Autonomous ErgoChair 2 Review
     Sat, Jul 06 2019 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One of the things that is very over-looked when it comes to our PC setup is the chair. Our computer chair is something we sit in for hours at a time everyday, so having a comfortable chair that is also functional is very important. We know Autonomous for their SmartDesk series of affordable sit-stand desks. They are bringing that same philosophy to office chairs. Autonomous builds their products and sells them directly through their website so there are no middlemen or retail markups, that is how they are able to provide premium products at affordable prices. The office chair we are taking a look at today is their ErgoChair 2, which if you can guess from the name is an ergonomic chair. It offers a breathable mesh design, flexible lumbar system, and an Italian-designed tilt mechanism. Will this be the chair to replace our gaming chair? Read on as we find out!"

F1 2019 Game Review
     Thu, Jul 04 2019 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

Corsair Nightsword RGB Tunable FPS/MOBA Review
     Wed, Jul 03 2019 | 2:46P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It seems that Corsair's aim with their recent releases is to leave no niche of mouse user feeling left out, and this release is aimed at the FPS/MOBA gamers who like their mouse to be just right, the Corsair Nightsword RGB is a mouse that features a Smart, tunable weight system which has been developed exclusively by Corsair, and has some differences to other options on the market which may make it worth your consideration.

My Friend Pedro
     Wed, Jun 26 2019 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"My Friend Pedro is an action-platformer is a 2.1D environment (it is not quite 2.5D) that has you killing just about every living thing you encounter. Using your abilities to slow time and dodge bullets, along with a decent arsenal of weapons, you will run through various locations hunting the criminals threatening your life. Pedro helps you with this, teaching you how to use your focus to slow time, providing hints, and explaining some of what is going on as your character is mute. He even writes you a poem at one point, because that is what sentient bananas do."

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Performance Analysis
     Mon, Jun 24 2019 | 1:42P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It has taken quite some time, but I have finally returned to Shadow of the Tomb Raider to look at graphics quality and performance. Though the long wait between when the game released and now may mean this is of less interest, it also worked in my favor as the game was not only updated to support ray traced shadows, but NVIDIA released drivers enabling Microsoft DXR support on non-RTX graphics cards, including the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 I have for testing. DirectX Ray tracing (DXR) is a hardware-agnostic ray-tracing technology and so does not require the RT cores of NVIDIA RTX GPUs, but RTX is able to act as a layer above DXR, significantly accelerating it. The RTX GPUs also support NVIDIA's Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) technology, and it too had support added to the game, so I took a look at its image quality impact."

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex TV HD Media Player Review
Nov 25 | Home Theatre
Seagate's GoFlex TV HD is a media player with network connectivity and hard drive dock. The pint-sized black box fits unobtrusively in a living room environment - unlike a full sized Media PC - and the GoFlex TV HD's on screen controls are simple to navigate via the infrared remote control. Full size media PCs often need a keyboard and mouse to be useful, having cooling fans that make a lot of noise and take up too much space...
