     Sun, Dec 18 2016 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having a specialized 3d API was arguably both the highlight and the downfall for pioneer 3Dfx. The Glide API combined with Voodoo hardware truly enhanced the gaming experience. If you are old enough, odds are you owned a 3Dfx card and played some of these games. Let us take you a trip down memory lane and remember some of the best.

Arozzi Arena Gaming Desk Review
     Thu, Dec 15 2016 | 4:09P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Exactly six months ago the folks over at Arozzi released the Arena gaming to the growing eSports community. The Arena is a fairly large gaming desk that measures in at 63-inches wide (160cm) by 32.28-inches deep (82cm) with a curved front, giving you a 13.5 square foot surface for gaming. The entire surface of the desk is covered by a cloth mouse pad that weighs 7 pounds. Read on to see what we think of it!

Corsair Harpoon RGB Review
     Thu, Dec 15 2016 | 3:21P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Harpoon RGB is Corsair's latest gaming mouse. This particular product combines an very attractive price point with good build quality. Apart from that there is an optical sensor with 6000 DPI resolution. We're actually pretty curious to find out whether a sub 30 Euro mouse is able to convince us or not. ?

ACME Zoopa Q420 Cruiser Quadrocopter Review
     Thu, Dec 15 2016 | 3:20P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Zoopa Q420 Cruiser drone from ACME is a decent quadrocopter featuring 360 flip function, a big responsive remote, one 600mAh LiPo rechargeable battery, a 720P camera module for taking photos or recording videos on microSDHC, blade protections but also a removable landing gear. The manufacturer also includes an additional set of blades for replacement in case the stock ones do break, while the drone orientation can be easily spotted via the different colored blades, but also thanks to the LED assemblies under each arm."

MSI sent us their latest fully featured PC, the Aegis Ti, to take a look at. This PC departs from the "traditional box" design in a big way and is ready to support not just one but two GTX 1080s! It's VR ready, including an HDMI port in front and dual M.2 drives, which can be configured in RAID, making it ready for whatever you want to throw at it.

Posted by: STAFF
With Feral Interactive releasing Total War: WARHAMMER for Linux this morning, you are probably curious how well this Linux OpenGL game port will perform with your graphics card prior to spending $60 USD for the game. Up now are my NVIDIA GeForce benchmarks for Total War: WARHAMMER on Ubuntu Linux with nine different graphics cards. In the hours ahead will be the relevant AMD tests with this newest AAA Linux game as soon as I finish up that testing."

MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming X Review
     Wed, Dec 07 2016 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming X, MSI has yet another high-end graphics card in its portfolio, which features a decent factory OC as well as a custom PCB and custom cooler. Apparently MSI's Gaming series graphics cards are always very interesting cards to have a look at, since almost always they're amongst the best cards money can buy.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Graphics Performance Analysis
     Tue, Dec 06 2016 | 1:27P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The original Deus Ex is widely regarded as a classic which paved the way forward for the stealth genre and illustrated the benefits of non-linear level design. In particular, the freedom to approach objectives using different strategies allows for multiple playthroughs and caters towards players with different skillsets. Sadly, the sequel failed to honour Deus Ex’s legacy due to the clunky AI, dreary story and focus on console development. Many years later, Square Enix decide to revive this iconic series and released Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Initially, people were sceptical and became concerned about a modern take not living up to the franchise’s legacy. Thankfully, Deus Ex: Human Revolution was a stellar title which received glowing comments from the press and gaming community.

Will last-gen game support hold iterative consoles back?
     Sat, Dec 03 2016 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Iterative consoles bring a host of benefits, but also some drawbacks: could last-gen backward compatibility be holding PS4 Pro and Xbox One S back?"

HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
     Sat, Dec 03 2016 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HyperX used to be considered the gaming division of Kingston solely because their system memory and solid state drives offered the high performance that you needed to power a serious gaming computer. While those products are still what I would consider the core business of HyperX, they now offer other items that should also appeal to gamers. We have looked at a few of their gaming headsets in recent reviews, and this time around we will be looking at their first gaming keyboard.

Hitman First Season
     Wed, Nov 30 2016 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Now that I have covered all of the episodes briefly, I think it makes sense to rank them based on how I liked them. The top two are Episode 2 – Sapienza and Episode 6 – Hokkaido. Episode 2 features a wonderful map with plenty of options for one to creatively complete their mission while Episode 6 has a good map but it is more the challenge of starting with nothing that I like. I do not know which I would put first and second, but these are definitely the top two for me. Third is Episode 3 – Marrakesh thanks to its map complexity and opportunities. It is just not quite on the same level of enjoyment for me as the top two episodes I gave above, but is not far away either. Obviously this leaves Episodes 4 and 5 as the bottom two, and I think I will put Episode 4 at the bottom. Neither of these are poor or bad missions, but I simply enjoy the others more. The reason I put Episode 5 above Episode 4 is that I just found the challenges it presented more interesting. I remember playing it and trying to avoid being caught while approaching my target. Remembering Episode 4 brings to mind getting lost in the hotel and trying to figure out how to get back to a disguise I need. It was still fun to play and I will very likely play it more after I finish up this review, but the others come first to me.”

Speedlink QUINOX Pro USB Gamepad Review
     Mon, Nov 28 2016 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It would seem that Speedlink have taken a step back and thought about how they could offer a great quality gamepad modelled on the Xbox One controller for PC gamers and the result is the Quinox. It supports both Dinput and Xinput, has 4 accessible paddles at the back and an additional 2 extra buttons by the bumpers which can all be programmed. It also features intense vibrations, LED lighting, and an OLED screen to help navigate the options. This would seem to be a lot of gamepad for the price, especially if you compare it to the £100+ SCUF/Elite/Wildcat alternatives, though are there any drawbacks to be found?
