NFS: Porsche Unleashed
     Mon, Jul 11 2016 | 11:41A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I really do not know what happened to me, but I used to hate racing games. I mean, really hate them. I played old, old racing games on Atari. I had some of the first ones available on PC. They did not appeal to me in the least. Instant buyer’s remorse for the most part. Then something strange happened. 3D graphics technology changed that opinion. Not only did hardware accelerated 3D help me get over my dislike, but the improvements in physical simulations also allowed a greater depth of experience. Throw in getting my first force feedback device and NFS: Porsche Unleashed and I was hooked from then on out.

Tesoro Gram Spectrum Review
     Tue, Jul 05 2016 | 2:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quite some time has passed since we've last reviewed a keyboard from Tesoro. Already at a first glance it becomes very clearly visible that a lot must have changed in the past, since this is actually the first keyboard from Tesoro we see, which features a simple and sleek design. Apart from that the combination of mechanical low-profile switches and RGB backlight sounds intersting. At this point we're definitely curious to find out whether this product is capable of convincing us or not.

Cougar DeathFire Gaming Combo Review
     Tue, Jul 05 2016 | 1:31P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The DeathFire combo from Cougar has just hit the market and we are fortunate enough to get our hands on it on it, especially considering the features for the price. Such as a keyboard that features hybrid mechanical switches. 26 key roll-over and RGB lighting, while the ambidextrous optical mouse is fitted with OMRON switches, the ADNS-5050 sensor and has been given a 1000Hz (1ms) refresh rate.

They have a lifespan of 50 million key strokes and finish up with a time exclusive specific shade of blue LED backlighting.

Tt eSPORTS Contour Mobile Gaming Controller Review
     Wed, Jun 29 2016 | 9:44A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Mobile gaming has been growing at a steady rate for a while now. Being able to play games on your smartphone or tablet makes it extremely convenient and easy. While touch-based games are great there are some pretty serious mobile games that are better played with a controller. A controller gives you better control of your game and allows you to play better, especially on a phone or tablet. Enter the Tt eSPORTS Contour, a mobile gaming controller made for iOS devices. It is fashioned after an Xbox controller and will work seamlessly with your iPhone, iPod, or iPad. Let's take a look and see what it is all about."

Total War: Warhammer DirectX 12 Graphics Performance Analysis
     Sun, Jun 26 2016 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Total War franchise has entertained fans of the strategy genre who have a penchant for barbaric historical periods since the dawn of PC gaming. Furthermore, these bloody conflicts brought history to life and gave users an insight into the harsh reality of classical warfare. Not only that, the ability to plan strategic onslaughts and react to the enemy’s movements is incredibly satisfying. Of course, Total War titles are set on a huge scale featuring a massive quantity of ground units which requires a thoughtful approach. The latest entry is quite unusual and based on the Warhammer fantasy series. Throughout the game, you can select between four playable factions: the Dwarfs, the Empire of Man, the Greenskins and the Vampire counts. According to Metacritic, the game has received a relatively positive response from both professional critics and PC users.

Game Review - Overwatch
     Wed, Jun 22 2016 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink

Overwatch is the new FPS game from Blizzard. Why are everyone talking about it? Let's find out!

     Wed, Jun 22 2016 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink

The Tesoro Olivant Pro is headset with a straightforward design and an exotic name. The Olivant comes in two variants, standard and Pro with the Pro featuring virtual 7.1 Surround Sound. I have never been a fan of virtual surround sounds as earlier takes on surround sound from the Logitech G930 seems to distort sound, but for those who want …

Corsair K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE Mechanical Gaming
     Wed, Jun 22 2016 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The great K70 RGB has been reincarnated with the RAPIDFIRE version and sports the brand-new MX Speed switches from Cherry. These are the first switches to provide a very fast 1.2mm mechanical actuation distance so gaming enthusiasts will get a significant boost from it. Casual gamers along with regular users will need a bit of time to adjust with the new fast response, while the 45g actuation force is the same as when using MX Reds or Silent MX switches."

Homefront: The Revolution
     Mon, Jun 20 2016 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After having constructed most of this from the release-day state of Homefront: The Revolution and then performing some additional tests after the June 3 patch with a patch for multicore CPUs, I have found that the Object graphics setting still has a significant impact on the game's performance. It is better following the patch, but I would still recommend shifting it down if you experience any performance issues as you play. The Shading and Shadow options have a tremendous impact on visuals, so definitely try to have those turned up if you can. The save files are located in a somewhat obvious, yet still uncommonly used location, the Saved Games user folder Windows puts in your user folder. The game downloads all of the localization files it might need, even if you only need one language. While this could negatively affect the stability of the game, it appears to be possible to delete the unneeded localization files to reclaim some space. If you need them back, verifying the game cache should trigger Steam to re-download them.”

     Sun, Jun 19 2016 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink

Bloody B720 Light Strike Keyboard Review
     Fri, Jun 17 2016 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A4Tech is a Taiwanese company whose “Bloody” gaming division was launched in 2012. Bloody produces gaming keyboards and mice using a unique switch technology: rather than metal contact points closing an electrical circuit when a key is pressed, Bloody’s mechanical switches use infrared LEDS and photosensors, which Bloody claims provides faster key response and a more reliable and durable switch. Benchmark Reviewschecks out the Bloody B720 Light Strike gaming keyboard to see how it compared to other premium gaming keyboards.
