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.

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate
     Sun, Mar 30 2014 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Razer on the other hand wanted to have a custom designed mechanical keys specifically made for gaming for its 2014 range. According to them, since mechanical keys are primarily designed for typists, its only make sense to make custom keys emphasizing for gaming use. They designed and engineered with two type of mechanical switches: Green and Orange. The green keys are designed for tactile and clicky noise with 50g actuation force. Razer Orange switches also have tactile but is made for silent use, with 45g actuation. The one that I am reviewing is the green variant.

Logitech G430 @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Mar 26 2014 | 3:50P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of you are familiar with most of Logitech`s product line at this point from having owned one or knowing someone who uses Logitech products. For the most part their product line has stayed the same, with just a few exceptions and with small refreshes like what they did this past year. One area where they expanded their product line this past year though was their audio line. Before they just had the G35 and the G930, but they have now added the G430 and the G230. You may have seen them with their funny commercials during LCS this year. Today I am going to find out how the G430 compares to the G930 and gaming headsets from their competition."

The Rise Of Indie Games – A Quick Look
     Wed, Mar 26 2014 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Indie Games are usually what some consumers might consider those “artsy obscure titles that hipsters play.” Lately however, that definition has been shifting and changing with the steep rise in prominence and popularity of indie titles. By now, indie titles can encompass any genre, have vastly varying degrees of quality and can even be found on any platform. If one were interested in defining indie games, in its current state, it’d be important to first take a look at the word itself. “Indie” is shorthand for Independent, so when a company or game describes itself as Indie it’s making itself independent from the majority. This “majority,” in the case of video games, comes in the form of big name publishers and large game development companies.

This new Thief is part sequel
     Wed, Mar 19 2014 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This new Thief is part sequel, part reboot. Set hundreds of years in the future, it divorces itself in time from the key organisations and personalities of past games to approach the franchise with a clean slate. Although referenced surreptitiously, events of the previous titles aren't obliquely referred to within the core story structure of the new game. Whilst that may disappoint some purists and long-time fans, it does allow newcomers to approach this instalment without knowing the ins-and-outs of the world's backstory.

The real story behind Twin Galaxies
     Fri, Mar 14 2014 | 3:40P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Twin Galaxies, the company that not only founded the concept of video game score keeping, but played a starring role in documentaries like King of Kong and Chasing Ghosts, has been in limbo for a while now. It changed hands a couple of times after the founder, Walter Day, sold it on to pursue his career in music, eventually coming to rest with a pair of arcade owners, where it was relaunched with a pay-per-submission system, a new website and a fresh coat of paint.

SteelSeries Rival Gaming Mouse Review
     Sun, Mar 09 2014 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It doesn’t happen too often when a new optical gaming mouse receives hype. In-fact this past year up until now, all the mice we reviewed all used lasers and laser sensors. SteelSeries sent us their Rival gaming mouse which does feature an optical sensor as well as a number of other gaming-focused features. It’s often argued that optical sensors don’t skip and thus track more reliably than laser sensors. In any case, better mice technology has narrowed the gap. We really haven’t noticed mouse skipping on the laser mice we have reviewed and the Rival’s optical sensor has a specified sensitivity, up to 6500 DPI, comparable to some laser mice out there. We’ll have to see if the Rival stands out from the crowd or conforms to the rest.

Mionix NAOS 7000 Optical Gaming Mouse
     Sun, Mar 09 2014 | 9:07A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Regardless of whether you`re a left or right hand user there will always be a wide range of gaming mice available in the market for you to choose from (especially if you happen to be right handed) from a large number of manufacturers. The real problem starts when people with large hands go out in the market to search for the ideal sized mouse something which can be very time consuming and not always with positive results since most manufacturers focus towards designing small and medium sized gaming mice with lightning fast laser/optical sensors (based on the demands by most consumers). Mionix is amongst the very few gaming peripheral manufacturers that actually cares about all segments of the market and what better way to prove that than by taking a look at all the different models in their NAOS line of gaming mice which have accompanied people with large hands for years now?

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.
