Mafia III Game Review
     Mon, Oct 17 2016 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mafia III is a very ambitious project from Hangar 13 and has required quite a bit of work to make it happen and the open-world environment is great! There are of course bugs which you will encounter if you mainly wander off and navigate through the rich environment, meaning that the game was mainly thought for you to follow the story line and not concentrate on other activities. In most of the situations, the game details are great, the story is being told in a unique way like a documentary and we also did like the fact that you can have other allies in order to take down the Italian mob which has betrayed the main character. The driving experience is available in both Arcade and Simulation modes, while the shooting scenes are pretty brutal, well done, while sneaking behind the enemies is another route we can take for completing the objective."

Nerdytec Couchmaster Cycon Review
     Sun, Oct 16 2016 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is no doubt that PC gaming is still all about the mouse and keyboard. While there has definitely been a big push towards gaming in the living room, as proven by Steam with their Steam Machines and Steam Controllers, such concepts are still a long way off from being as ubiquitous as the tried-and-trusted keyboard and mouse combination. Rather than trying to fight that, Nerdytec have launched the Couchmaster Cycon in an attempt to make using the keyboard and mouse from your sofa as comfortable as possible.

MSI Vortex G65VR 6RE GTX 1070 SLI Gaming PC Review
     Sat, Oct 15 2016 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The typical PC form factor has progressively evolved over time due to the advent of die shrinks and other efficiency savings which make compact systems a viable purchase. Unless you’re opting for a build with multiple graphics cards, it’s possible to construct an extremely powerful machine in a sleek and slimline chassis. Saying that, full tower cases provide better airflow due to the larger surface area and tiny ITX cube cases tend to be reserved for low-end HTPC usage scenarios. Despite the higher thermal loads, consumers appear to be embracing smaller hardware and enjoy the concept of downsizing their PC. This market trend has inspired manufacturers to draft innovative, interesting designs which could potentially change the way we perceive systems with exceptional gaming credentials.

Posted by: STAFF
Picking the right chair to go with your desk, so you can kick back and enjoy your games, or even just feel comfortable for those long work hours, can be a demanding task.

Gaming chairs are big business these days, and while the market is flooded with affordable products ranging from £100-200, there’s not a growing market for premium products, and that’s where noblechairs come in.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Performance
     Tue, Sep 20 2016 | 11:21A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”I was able to find good, playable settings for each of the four tested GPUs, but three of them all seemed to hang around the same FPS range. This suggests my CPU is holding them back, along with my observation that performance improves significantly when inside buildings. The GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 are almost certainly being bottlenecked by my CPU, and it is possible the GTX 980 is as well, but I do not want to commit to that idea. Also, options that I would normally expect to reduce a CPU bottleneck, such as reducing Level of Detail, did not seem to make a difference. While I will not take this as proof it is not bottlenecking me, it may suggest the nature of the bottleneck is something I cannot so easily remedy. That wraps up this analysis, but I do intend to return to it in the future, when DirectX 12 support is added. This could actually go a fair distance in addressing what CPU issues I seem to be having, so I for one am looking forward to this particular patch.”
