build a gaming PC
     Mon, Aug 11 2014 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yes, we've got some hardware to give away again. This time, our prizes hail from Gigabyte, Enermax, and Samsung, and they include almost every component needed to build a gaming PC. All in all, we've got nearly a thousand bucks worth of hardware up for grabs—and it couldn't be easier to enter for a chance to win, provided you're at least somewhat creatively minded.

Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury Gaming Mouse - Give a Mouse an Accelerometer
     Sat, Aug 09 2014 | 5:08P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The solution to this according to Logitech is to supplement the optical sensor with an accelerometer and gyro. These devices are constantly measuring data but are not accurate at slow speeds. (Try to move your Wii U remotes VERY slowly and see how accurate they can be.) But at high speeds, these sensors are fairly accurate - and are much more accurate that nothing, which is what the optical sensor is providing. And when I say high speeds, I mean it. Logitech says the sensor is capable of measuring up to 500 IPS; that`s 28.4 mph!"

Griffin Wired Keyboard with Lightning Connector Review @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Aug 07 2014 | 5:08P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Griffin Wired Keyboard with Lightning Connector is a standard sized keyboard designed to be used with any iOS devices including iPhones, iPod Touches and iPads. Unlike other keyboards this one plugs directly into the Lightning port meaning you dont have to deal with charging it, running out of battery or worrying about the Bluetooth connection flaking out. If you have used the Apple branded Bluetooth Keyboard in the past then you will be quite familiar with this keyboards size, style and layout."

Valiant Hearts: The Great War PC Game Review
     Thu, Aug 07 2014 | 6:07A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
World War One is not often explored in video games, but when it is done as well as Valiant Hearts: The Great War, then it is certainly worth the wait."

Gamdias Hermes Cherry MX Blue Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Fri, Aug 01 2014 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gamdias are one of the newest players in the gaming peripheral market, and while they may have only been at this a couple of years, they’ve made some big impression with the laser like focus for creating awesome products. It was only recently we reviewed our first Gamdias product, the Hephaestus headset, and it’s easily one of the coolest headsets we’ve ever tested. Today I’m hoping that Gamdias can create something as unique and innovative as the Hephaestus headset with their new keyboard, although initial impressions tells me they certainly can.

GAMDIAS HERMES Essential GKB2000 Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Sun, Jul 27 2014 | 9:12A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gamdias Technology Co., Ltd. is a Taiwan based company that was recently formed in 2012. As a result, their offerings are quite small, with four keyboards, a few mice, a couple of gaming headsets and some accessories such as gaming gloves. The Gamdias HERMES is their premier gaming keyboard series, with Cherry MX switches, 512KB of memory, 32-bit ARM processor, 13 customizable macro keys, and USB / audio ports. With many already existing gaming keyboards such as the Logitech G510 and Corsair Vengeance, can the HERMES Essential make inroads in an already congested market? In this Benchmark Reviews article, I?ll discuss the design and features of the HERMES GKB2000 as well as Gamdias?s peripheral software, the Gamdias HERA."

Borderlands 5-Years Later
     Thu, Jul 17 2014 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Five years later, is it worth returning to Pandora? I believe it is. Borderlands was and still is a very fun game that rewards players well and offers an entertaining experience. Thanks to their styling, the graphics have held up very well and the performance is as great as you would want or expect. It does suffer from some texture streaming, but it is not too severe.”

Metro 2033 4-Years Later
     Thu, Jul 17 2014 | 12:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Its biggest problem is its performance on modern hardware. As it is now, one would expect near perfect performance on a computer with current hardware, but alas this is not the case. This does not make it unplayable except by a stretch, but it cannot be ignored and does affect the experience. If you can forgive that, which honestly should not be too difficult to do, then there almost no reason to not play this game. Gamers looking for a good survival FPS with a good story should definitely invest their time into this. With the Redux version, I only expect it to be better.”

XTracGear Carbonic Gaming Mousepad Review @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Jul 17 2014 | 8:59A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today for review Ive got the latest gaming mousepad from XtracGear called the Carbonic. The pad gets its name from the carbon fiber appearance on the surface of the pad, its not carbon fiber, its what would be considered a cloth pad, but its not cloth as you might expect. The surface is shiny and what Xtrac calls a polished textile surface making it have the rougher surface of a cloth pad for more control but also making it slicker than most traditional cloth pads are. The Carbonic has what I would call a hybrid surface, its flexible like cloth but yet slick like plastic. Read on to learn more.. "
