FIFA 12 (PS3) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Thu, Jan 26 2012 | 1:59P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
FIFA 12 (PS3) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Today we`ll be taking a look at the most recent FIFA game release by Electronic Arts, FIFA 12. It`s been a few months since FIFA 12 came out however in the January sales it may well be on the wish list for some with money burning a hole in their pocket."

Q.U.B.E. Review - Its No Portal @ Techgage
     Wed, Jan 25 2012 | 8:46A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s easy to compare Q.U.B.E. to Portal at a quick glance, but in reality it`s a much different game. The main focus is on puzzle-solving, but the puzzles here are solved by manipulating blocks in order to achieve some objective to open the door at the end. And in terms of sheer difficulty, Q.U.B.E. takes the cake."

Batman: Arkham City @ Bjorn3D
     Mon, Jan 23 2012 | 11:44A | Games | PermaLink

Batman: Arkham Asylum was a hit in 2009 so in our review we look to see if the sequel, Arkham City, has hit the mark again."

[DreamWare Computers] Saitek Pro Flight Cessna Yoke
     Sun, Jan 15 2012 | 11:30A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Pro Flight Cessna Yoke setup gives you a Cessna branded flying yoke, which is 1:1 scale with the yoke found in a real Cessna, and also a separate throttle quadrant. Through the use of various add-ons, the Cessna Pro Yoke system can be further expanded with rudder pedals, a trim wheel, and a variety of button and indication panels. Now your flight simulators don`t need to feel like a game - they can feel like the real thing!,,,,,,,,"

Razer Blackwidow Ultimate Gaming keyboard @ Rbmods
     Mon, Jan 09 2012 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are taking a look at the Razer Blackwidow mechanical gaming keyboard in todays review. The Blackwidow has been on the market for awhile but Razer has released new versions of it and we got a sample of their Battlefield 3 version. It comes equipped with Cherry MX Blue switches that apparently should be quite comfortable to use during both gaming and normal daily usage. Lets find out what we can expect from this keyboard."

The state of gaming - What will be the next big push in the world of games?
     Thu, Jan 05 2012 | 10:31A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s almost an impossible question. One can deny that the PC market is falling, but the death of PC gaming bell has been rung for quite a while now and with every new console, we hear it again. First, let`s rewind back to the mid-90s. Weren`t those the days? PC gaming was in its A-grade, with gaming developer Gods such as Carmack and Sweeney controlling the two titan gaming engines, Quake and Unreal. With each new title in the respective games series, required a huge bump in graphical power requirements. Each game that came out featured new graphical abilities, such as colored lighting, shadowing systems, bigger levels, A.I. - the list is virtually endless. Tablets and smartphones have gotten to the point where they are comparable to basic PCs now, with quad-core tablets hitting shelves just before Christmas. Where does this leave the desktop PC gaming market?"

NewerTech NuTouch Gloves Review
     Tue, Jan 03 2012 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Arriving a few weeks ago just in time for the cold winter weather in Canada's national capital, Ottawa, I received a package from NewerTech and Other World Computing. I was excited to receive this package, and not because it contained high tech goodies, but because it had a pair of NuTouch gloves. The reason I was looking forward to receiving these gloves is because I use my iPhone a lot when I'm outside, and my old pair of gloves didn't work with touchscreens. This meant having to take off my gloves when operating touchscreen devices, and with outside temperatures frequently dropping into the -20 degree celcius (-4F) range, this resulted in frozen hands. This really negated the effects of having gloves in the first place.

The Other Best Video Games of 2011
     Sun, Jan 01 2012 | 9:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MEGATechNews remembers some of the least recognized games of 2011 ... MEGATech Showcase: The Other Best Video Games of 2011 It?s the end of the year and the Internet has been flooded with countless ?best of? lists. And frankly, I?m here to bring you more. As a frequent player of videogames (who isn?t crazy about the term ?gamer?), I?ve already read several lists of what people consider to be the best games of 2011. Not surprisingly, Skyrim tops them all. As someone who?s only a minor fan of Oblivion, I agree that Skyrim is far and wide the best game of 2011. I?ve also seen Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Uncharted 3, and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on many lists, and they?re all great games. In fact, I don?t think I?ve seen a single game listed that I thought didn?t deserve to be recognized."

Batman Arkham City 3D Vision Game Review @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Dec 31 2011 | 9:20A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Of all the superheroes, Batman is one of the few who does not possess any super-human power. Perhaps that is why so many people cheer for The Great Detective, and why so many gamers seek to wear his utility belt. Although the upcoming movie The Dark Knight Rises depicts the same character played in the Batman: Arkham City video game, both also share 3D special effects that offer a glimpse from behind Batman`s cowl. Super-villain Joker always gets the last laugh, and uses dozens of other arch enemies to help make his punch line. In this article, Benchmark Reviews guides you through the criminal masterminds that inhabit Batman: Arkham City in this NVIDIA 3D Vision game review."

Thrustmaster Ferrari F1 Wheel T500 Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Dec 31 2011 | 9:05A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A gaming wheel isn`t all about the looks though - performance is a massive talking point too, and this wheel certainly doesn`t disappoint. With the back end and pedals taken from the highly rated T500RS, it should have all the tricks of the trade required to keep even the most avid racing fans satisfied."

Roccat ISKU Illuminated Gaming Keyboard @ Benchmark Reviews
     Wed, Dec 28 2011 | 9:38P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Roccat has shown us here at Benchmark Reviews that it has what it takes to compete successfully in the gaming mouse market. What we are going to find out today is whether they can follow that success with the Roccat ISKU Illuminated Gaming Keyboard. Like the KONE[+] gaming mouse, the ISKU gaming keyboard has EasyShift[+] and when these two devices are paired together they can communicate with each other using the Roccat Talk protocol. There are three EasyShift[+] zones featuring 28 easy-to-reach macro keys, 5 doubly-programmable dedicated M-keys and 3 doubly-programmable Thumbster T-Keys. It is possible to assign different pre-defined functions to the eight media keys and you can also re-assign the F-keys to be used as shortcut or application launch keys. The illuminated keys have five levels of brightness and will auto dim when the keyboard has been idle for a predefined amount of time. If this hasn`t got you interested then I don`t know what will, please read on to find out more."

F1 2011 (PC) Review @ Techgage
     Tue, Dec 27 2011 | 11:12P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The winner of the current F1 season is almost a sure-thing, but is Codemasters` latest F1 sim as well? With the introduction of DRS and KERS, improved driving physics, more realistic AI, a new collection of tracks, an improved focus on multi-player and the greatest racing challenge to date - it just might be."
