Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings GPU & CPU Performance Review
     Fri, Jun 17 2011 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hot on the heels of Dragon Age II's somewhat disappointing March debut, CD Projekt Red has quenched the thirst of role-playing buffs with the sequel to its critically acclaimed RPG, The Witcher. Released on May 17, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was greeted with much fanfare, earning a score of 88/100 on Metacritic and a user score of 8.7/10. We had high hopes for The Witcher 2's graphical fidelity, though we were surprised and a bit disappointed to learn that it's strictly a DirectX 9 title. This has become somewhat of a trend for 2011's PC games, as you know Crysis 2 shipped solely with DirectX 9 support, though Crytek has promised to deliver DirectX 11 with a patch sometime this year. Unfortunately, CD Projekt also embraced another unsavory trend of late by shipping a bug-riddled product. Considering the initial performance issues, we decided to delay our performance review until some of the major kinks were ironed out. That time has come and we're happy to bring you our full performance test, complete with nearly two dozen video card configurations running The Witcher 2 with various quality settings in three popular resolutions.

Bulletstorm PC Review
     Sat, Jun 11 2011 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Epic Games and shooters go together like few other combinations in the gaming industry. Even when Epic aren't releasing shooting games directly themselves, their Unreal Engine technology is delivering the framework necessary to create usually very good shooting games for other developers and publishers to slap their logo on. In the case of Bulletstorm, which is one such Unreal Engine game, the development has been kept in house via the Epic owned studio 'People Can Fly'. Despite the fact we've already seen and played similarly styled and marketed games in this engine in recent times, and despite the fact Bulletstorm could be seen as "just another shooter", there is plenty to like here and a surprising amount of new angles on offer for what is easily one of the gaming industry's hardest genres to innovate effectively."

"The basic storyline to Red Faction: Armageddons single player campaign is that we are a mercenary on Mars. The game begins with us joining a squad of marine type characters on a mission to save the planets Terraformer from being destroyed by the big evil of the game, Adam Hale. Following the success, or failure of this initial mission where we learn the main game mechanic we are tasked with variations on 3rd person action as we take on various jobs surrounding the main plot."

Posted by: STAFF
"So it's here... finally... the long awaited (12+ years??!) "new" Duke Nukem game. It has been said that no game could live up to the hype generated in that time and that is probably true however that doesn't mean Duke Nukem Forever couldn't be good... an enjoyable nostalgic blast."

Section 8: Prejudice Review
     Sat, Jun 04 2011 | 5:20P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In 2009 TimeGate Studios released a first person shooter called Section 8 which gained a decent online following thanks to a good multi-player experience. The follow up features refinements to the multi-player and a new single player campaign but the twist is that this is a download only title (for 360/PS3 and PC) which costs £9.99/$15 rather than the £30-40 or $50 that most new titles launch at."

Azza Toledo 301 Budget Gaming Tower

The goal of AZZA when it came time to release the Toledo 301 unto the world was to offer the customer a great looking budget gaming case, but not budget on features with toting many of those of more expensive case. With Toledo you get water-cooling capability, enough room to house massive amounts of storage space, and for the gamer it comes with enough room to accommodate graphic cards as long as the Radeon HD 5970.

Contemporary Graphics Cards in World of Warcraft
     Wed, Jun 01 2011 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
DirectX 11 API is already quite a mature piece of software that has been with us for a couple of years. Unfortunately for end-users its actual implementation in real life applications has been slow. But recently Blizzard has officially released its World of Warcraft: Cataclysm 4.1 Patch, which should attract just that bit more attention to this. Read on to find out why.

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.
