OZONE Gaming Worldwide Joint Giveaway
     Fri, Oct 11 2013 | 1:41P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A good friend of mine always says that game companies always wait until the worst time of the year to release games and what worse time than when the schools get re-opened after the summer holidays? Well it seems to be true since during the last month weve seen quite a few of the most anticipated game titles hit the market including Shadow Warrior, Flashback, Alien Rage, NBA 2k14 and of course the F1 2013. Because of this we joined hands with our good friends from OZONE Gaming to offer not one but a total of 4 great prizes for 3 very lucky winners."

SteelSeries APEX [RAW] Gaming Keyboard
     Wed, Oct 09 2013 | 5:40P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There's a somewhat fierce fight taking place in the market nowadays between consumers who strongly support the typical membrane key technology used in the majority of keyboards and the ones who prefer the more durable mechanical keys used in a much lower degree. The only problem with this is that some manufacturers actually invest many resources to further improve membrane key technology and we've already seen such solutions one of which is the very good APEX Gaming Keyboard recently released by SteelSeries. The only downside however when you make a feature-rich gaming keyboard regardless of the type of keys used is its price tag and the APEX is really not the most affordable choice especially for a keyboard that uses membrane keys and thus is considered less "durable" by many people. Well SteelSeries has been around for a long time and they know first-hand that in order to cover most consumers they need to have variety and the cut-down version of the APEX named the APEX [RAW] Gaming Keyboard should tempt consumers on a tight budget a lot more than its brother.

Func MS-3 Review @ Ocaholic
     Wed, Oct 09 2013 | 1:17P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the MS-3, Func has an elegant rodent in its portfolio, which offers programmable buttons as well as a state of the art sensor. Other than that there should also be a decent software allowing seemless configuration. Overall we`re quite curious to find out what this little thing can do."

     Wed, Oct 09 2013 | 10:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quite a market has developed for high end mechanical gaming keyboards. Gamers, both professional and otherwise, have begun to migrate towards the tactile feedback each individual keystroke or double tap provides. With this growing market, the usual names have thrown their hats into the ring with offerings that both impress and amaze. Today I take a look at Thermaltakes top of the pyramid offering, the Meka G-Unit Illumination Edition and see if this monster of a keyboard can tangle with its competitors."

CM Havoc Gaming Mouse and QuickFire XT Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Wed, Oct 02 2013 | 6:21P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall I really enjoyed the CM Havoc gaming mouse. I usually don`t go for the fat mice, but this is one you can definitely be a chubby chaser for and still be thought of as okay. It is definitely set to fancy those with a palm grip and despite having small hands there`s not too much there. It is built nice and sturdy and even some rage smashes of the mouse have not shown any instant signs of loss. The little bit of lighting really adds to the mouse in my opinion; for some reason I fall into the category of loving a little bit of customization through a little bit of lighting on my peripherals. The lighting is subtle enough and you can turn it off completely without it looking like it is broken. I didn`t like that I couldn`t have my full RGB spectrum, but I can settle with the standard options provided. The mouse glides quite well even on the cheapest of mouse pads and is great for many hours of game play, work, and whatever else you use your mouse for. It`s just a nice simple connection between you and your machine."

Humble Indie Bundle 9 Review
     Tue, Oct 01 2013 | 9:45A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With each game covered separately, it is time to consider the bundle as a whole. Is the Humble Indie Bundle 9 worth purchasing? Yes it is. Trine 2: Complete Story is an enjoyable puzzler with beautiful graphics and a gameplay design that lets you play at your own pace; hunt down every secret or just reach the end and return later. Mark of the Ninja also lets you control your gameplay experience, as you choose to vanquish your foes or sneak past them. FTL: Faster Than Light offers a randomized experience each time you start a new game, which will probably happen a lot as it mercilessly tests your ability to captain a spaceship. These three, individually, make the bundle worth purchasing."

     Mon, Sep 30 2013 | 10:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Read the F1 2013 (PC) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com A couple of weeks ago we got our first real taste of Codemasters F1 2013 in its preview form and found it to be an interesting evolution of the franchise. Now with the review build in our hands we are able to give our opinions on the latest instalment. This time though, there are two editions of the game, not in the same way that other developers may publish with a deluxe fancy edition with random extras. No, this is all about content and how much the end user loves classic F1."

LanOC V13 Recap @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Sep 27 2013 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Its been a few days now and not only have I set all of the PCs around the house back up, I also took the time to do detail cleaning around my desk. Even after a few days I feel little tired, an impromptu nap that went until 3pm yesterday helped some but its going to be a little while before Im back to normal. All of it means we had another successful LAN. Of course the work doesnt stop on Sunday for me, but before I get too far into it I wanted to post up a little bit of a roundup. Read on to hear more about it."

Grand Theft Auto V Review: A Triple Dose of Satirical Fun
     Thu, Sep 26 2013 | 2:55P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You're undoubtedly familiar with the GTA franchise, if not from having hands-on experience with previous titles, then by the frequent media outcries about in-game violence. Developer Rockstar Games is often the recipient of criticism and moral outrage whenever a politician or media figure covers a real-world tragedy and tries to connect the event to violent video games. The most current GTA title at any given point in time is always an easy target, and GTA V is no exception. If you're reading this, then chances are you're okay with that, so I'm not going to spend much time focusing on the moral angle of the grossly inappropriate tasks presented in GTA V and what that says about our society. Perhaps we're all a little twisted on the inside, as evidenced by GTA V raking in over $1 billion during its first three days.

CM Storm QuickFire XT (Cherry MX Blue) Gaming Keyboard Review @HiTech Legion
     Sun, Sep 22 2013 | 10:12A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CM Storm QuickFire XT is a keyboard with the Cherry MX mechanical keys. If the QuickFire XT was a car, it would be trying to compete with the likes of the BMW M3 or the Porsche 911. With its Cherry MX Blue keys, it attempts to combine the mechanical features that are desired by gamers, such as NKRO, with a nice elegant and simple styling unlike the other full-sized mechanical keyboard from Cooler Master."

Tom Clancys Splinter Cell Blacklist Review
     Sat, Sep 21 2013 | 6:46P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ignoring the stability issues I have been having, this game is definitely fun and intense, if you have the temperament for it. The game is built around stealth, not combat, so you should not be surprised when only a few bullets take you down after making a mistake. If you have the patience though, I can recommend this game to you. It is well designed and implemented, though there are still some points that could use some extra polish. Also the graphics are almost uniformly impressive. I cannot recall the last game I played that launched on PC and console and looked so good on the PC. Often you can spot some poorer graphics as a result of designing for the less-graphically-capable consoles."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
