We took a look at Shift 2: Unleashed, which comes without the Need for Speed in its title, because Electronic Arts wants to split Acrade and Simulation. Is it worth buying?

Crytek: Crysis 2.
     Sun, Apr 17 2011 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
'On March 22nd, the long anticipated Crysis 2 was been finally released on the market. Prior to the release, dedicated fans had the opportunity to experience the Demo, which provided a quick glimpse at the multiplayer gaming experience in Crysis 2. While lacking the actual campaign, the Demo did introduce the multiplayer engine, revealing some of the abilities and modes which the actual game would include. The game is designed as a sequel to both Crysis and Crysis: WARHEAD. However, the settings and the environment are completely different. Instead of the island jungle settings of the previous releases, the game occurs in the city, in particular New York, creating a faster paste environment.'

Mecha HK-2207 real-time demo
     Fri, Apr 01 2011 | 4:22P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Mecha HK-2207 real-time demo features a number of post processing effects (depth-of-field, lens flare, ghosting, aerial perspective/atmospheric, LUT, emissive and reflection) provided as an easy approach for developers and artists to adopt Microsoft DirectX 11 programming. This demo also uses a current trend in game engines utilizing deferred lighting and deferred shading allowing many more lights and rapid prototyping. A newly developed GPU accelerated physics particle system is introduced utilizing DirectX 11 DirectCompute. Bullet Physics is used with a new fracture/destruction approach that also features procedurally generated unique debris leveraging DirectX 11 tessellation."

Killzone 3 PlayStation 3 Review
     Tue, Mar 29 2011 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Killzone as a series has had a really interesting time of it. Debuting on the PlayStation 2 as Sony Computer Entertainments answer to the mega blockbluster Halo: Combat Evoled on Xbox, it was also the show pony for the PlayStation 3 during its unveiling at E3 2005. However, this is where the series started to go off the rails with gamers worldwide calling out the demonstration presented as most likely impossible. And so it was proved. Killzone 2 launched on the PlayStation 3 to much fanfare, but it didn’t live up to the hype. Killzone 3 is the third attempt from Guerrilla Games and whilst they got a whole lot right this time around, they also got many things wrong. Like the first two games, Killzone 3 is a first person shooter set in a sci-fi world. However, where many first person shooters focus on action, Killzone 3 focuses on the stories behind the war and the characters themselves; trying to build a connection between the player and the game. However, in many aspects it fails. The atrocity committed at the end of Killzone 2 is basically ignored despite the game being picked up directly after the end of Killzone 2, and in many ways this is puzzling."

Bulletstorm: Game & 3D Overview
     Tue, Mar 29 2011 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The highly anticipated first-person shooter Bulletstorm is finally here. It was released on February 22, 2011 in the US and on the February 24 and 25, 2011 in AU and UK respectively. Bulletstorm's development first started back in June 2007 with Epic Games and People Can Fly. Its incorporated skillshot gameplay system rewards players for being as creative and destructive as possible in their mayhem. Examples include killing enemies in midair, pushing enemies into man-eating plants, cactuses, walls and electricity, or executing enemies after violently transplanting bullets into their testicles. Games like the Serious Sam series and Gears of War closely resemble Bulletstorm in their penchant for violence and abundance of monsters and creatures. Players that enjoyed those games are more than likely to enjoy Bulletstorm, because it can be seen as a combination of the two, with more human-like realism in first-person shooter mode. Bulletstorm is a crazy and creative action game, allowing the user to have lots of fun slaughtering enemies and gaining combo points that will provide the options to upgrade weapons.

Dragon Age II GPU & CPU Performance Test
     Tue, Mar 15 2011 | 5:29P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fans of the original game are no doubt excited about the recent release of Dragon Age II. A spiritual successor to the Baldur's Gate series, Dragon Age: Origins was the first game of its franchise. Unlike many others, BioWare was wildly successful in bringing this role-playing game to realization as a true multi-platform endeavor, spanning releases on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Mac, and of course, the PC. Given our ability to fit out PCs with vastly superior hardware, it pays off when playing Dragon Age II. Right off the bat BioWare released a free high-resolution texture pack download designed exclusively for the PC version. Just as important, the game exclusively supports DirectX 11 on the PC providing cutting edge rendering features such as tessellation, additional dynamic lighting, depth of field and ambient occlusion (SSAO). When compared to DX9 we can confirm that Dragon Age II looks considerably better using the more advanced renderer. With this in mind, we'll solely focus on DirectX 11 performance using over a dozen graphics cards capable of rendering Dragon Age II on all its visual glory. As usual we'll also be looking at CPU performance to see what kind of processor gamers are going to require to take full advantage of Dragon Age II.

Microsoft has discontinued its range of SideWinder gaming products, for a second time. The first time was back in 2003, although the company re-launched its gaming brand in 2007 after some co-operation with Razer, although this time around it's not likely that we'll see a return of the SideWinder brand.

It seems that another antivirus software has gone mad. This time it`s the reputable ESET aka NOD32 and Smart Security. In the past few days, users have been complaining of massive amount of false positive alerts with ESET and the latest virus definition update.

Recently, a smattering of products based on Zacate and its lower-power cousin, Ontario, have since begun trickling out to retail and we’ve gotten our hands on two of them for some in-house testing. Although they are based on the same AMD E-350 APU (Accelerated Processing Unit), the Gigabyte E350N-USB3 and Zotac Zbox Blu-Ray AD03 Plus are two very different products. The Gigabyte E350N-USB3 is a mini-ITX mobo featuring an E-350 APU targeting the DIY crowd, while the Zotac Zbox is a sleek, highly-integrated, full-featured HTPC...

Battlefield 3 PC Review
     Sat, Feb 12 2011 | 11:19A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some people may not be aware of this, but Battlefields roots began well before the 1942 iteration of the series hit the PC platform with such an impact in 2002. DICE, the developer behind the series, had already played around with large maps and vehicular warfare with their often forgotten Codename Eagle. Codename Eagle shares many traits with Battlefield - a huge multiplayer map with many players able to take on each either via land or air vehicles, or on foot. Battlefield 3 is no doubt one of the most anticipated games of 2011 and comes up against what will no doubt be one of the biggest releases of the year; Modern Warfare 3. Can DICE take the challenge up to Modern Warfare? There is no doubt that if there is one game that was going to do it, it would be Battlefield and EA has promoted this fact for many months during the release cycle. However, after playing the campaign and many hours of the multiplayer, our opinion is that the game is good, but it isn`t perfect."
