G.SKILL RIPJAWS KM780 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Tue, Jan 19 2016 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The KM780 RGB keyboard can be easily paired with the MX780 gaming mouse thanks to the unified software which permits easy switching between the two for easy configuration. The new keyboard from G.SKILL employs one of the most recent switches from Cherry, the MX Brown RGB which permits a more uniform lighting across the keyboard thanks to the semi-transparent housing and we also get the quality and durability of the well-known brand. While other manufacturers have decided to include all extra functions along with the F-keys, G.SKILL saw fit to use separate buttons on top, for an easier access. As with other high-end keyboards, we do get a brushed aluminum top cover and as a novelty item the manufacturer has also used a steel bar around the chassis, which can be used for attaching the accessory box or for working with the cable router.

Vertagear S-Line SL4000 Review
     Mon, Jan 18 2016 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After our first review of a gaming chair was quite a success, we're going to have a close look at another model. This particular chair is a little more expensive than the last one we reviewed, and therefore it should offer great quality and good comfort.

Alienware 13 R2 Gaming Laptop And Graphics AMP Review
     Fri, Jan 15 2016 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You could almost hear the collective groan from the enthusiast community when Dell announced it had purchased Alienware, in what now feels like 100 years ago. It has actually been just shy of a decade since Dell took ownership, and rather than let the Alienware brand wither into irrelevance like some other boutique vendors that were later absorbed by major OEMs (Voodoo who?), Dell's gaming gear division has continued to thrive and innovate with the help of the company's deeper resources. If we're being totally honest (as we always are), passionate consumers come out of the woodwork whenever the Alienware name is invoked. Some are rational and offer up observational criticism or praise, as well as personal anecdotes, though we've seen our share of both blind bashing and enthusiasm as well. We bring this up because the Alienware 13 R2 gaming laptop is yet another finely crafted and interesting product that shows why the boutique brand is in the right hands...

SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless Gamepad Controller Review
     Thu, Jan 07 2016 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Nimbus Wireless Gamepad Controller is a Mfi controller designed for iOS game play across all the Apple platforms but is especially suited for the latest Apple TV model. It features a 40+ hour rechargeable battery using a Lightning connection for charging. If you are acquainted with either of the PlayStation or Xbox controllers then the Nimbus should feel very familiar. "

Elgato Game Capture HD60 Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Jan 07 2016 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Recording and streaming your gameplay has never been more popular. Some people are making a full-time living off of gaming videos on YouTube and with streaming services like Twitch. While recording and broadcasting from a PC can be done without any extra hardware doing it on a console or say Steam Machine can be a little more difficult. Since video sharing became popular one of the most well known names in the game capture market has been Elgato and today we have one of their latest game capture devices, the Game Capture HD60. If you can guess by the name this device will allow your to capture your gameplay in HD resolution (1920 x 1080) and at 60 frames per second. This devices offers so much more too, so let’s jump right in and see what it’s all about!"

Just Cause 3
     Wed, Jan 06 2016 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Does it fully live up to my expectations from Just Cause 2? Not quite and that is mainly for three reasons. The first is the quirk with the missiles needing to be spam-clicked. While I do not hold that quirk against the game on its own, it is enough of a wrinkle to miss the totality of my hope. The second is how some things are locked behind the mods, especially some of the tether enhancements. By the time I had unlocked the mods that gave additional tethers, and importantly stronger tethers, I had already found my groove and felt no desire to change it during fights. Of course now I can go back and replay select military bases and experiment as I wish, without hurting my progression, but having some of that sooner would have been nice. Finally, the planted explosives you have an unlimited supply of take long enough to place that I found their use to be limited, at least during open combat.”

Logitech G910 Orion Spark RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Tue, Jan 05 2016 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’re back again with our latest Logitech review, and following on from the stunning Logitech G502 Proteus Core gaming mouse, we now have the G910 Orion Spark, the big brother of the also recently reviewed Logitech Atlas Spectrum G410 TKL Keyboard. The G410 was certainly unique, offering a lot of cool features that put it on a lot of people’s wish list. The G910 keeps pretty much every feature we loved about the G410, but it’s bigger and better, with even more cool features and, of course, a full-size keyboard design with a number pad.

Vibox Defcon 3 Red Gaming PC Review
     Tue, Jan 05 2016 | 12:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Selecting any pre-configured PC can be a daunting experience especially if the end-user feels overwhelmed by the huge array of options. Thankfully, Vibox is one of the leading system builders in the industry and adopts a basic scoring system to help novices gauge the suitability of each configuration. More specifically, the company even outlines typical gaming performance and quantifies the difference between each specification in a transparent manner. This is an essential tool to put people at ease and ensure they purchase the right system for their personal requirements.

Star Wars Battlefront
     Mon, Jan 04 2016 | 2:07P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In celebration of the release of The Force Awakens as well as the new Star Wars Battlefront game from DICE and EA, AMD sent over some hardware for us to use in a system build, targeted at getting users up and running in Battlefront with impressive quality and performance, but still on a reasonable budget. Pairing up an AMD processor, MSI motherboard, Sapphire GPU with a low cost chassis, SSD and more, the combined system includes a FreeSync monitor for around $1,200.

Corsair Strafe RGB MX Silent Gaming Keyboard Review
     Sat, Jan 02 2016 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The glut of mechanical keyboards with per-key RGB lighting continues with the release of Corsair’s Strafe RGB Cherry MX Silent series. In addition to features such as extremely versatile programmable lighting, a pass-through USB port, optional textured key caps, and a detachable wrist rest, Corsair adds a unique to them (for now) “silent” version of the Cherry MX Red key switch.

Today the LiteHawk QUATTRO SNAP Quadcopter gets reviewed by ModSynergy! Find out what I think and see the SNAP in action with photos and videos of my experience. Let's get this review started!"

Razer Mamba (2015) @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Dec 30 2015 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's funny, as much as things change there are some areas where things stay the same. A great example of this is with a lot of today’s gaming mice. The fact is, with mice like the G5 and the Deathadder, they just got almost everything right. This is why we have seen both reintroduced multiple times with just small changes to keep up with what people are looking for. For the Deathadder, Razer’s biggest change or update was the introduction of the Razer Mamba. I first saw the Mamba back in 2009 at CES in a tiny little booth that wasn’t even on the show floor. Back then Razer was still a very small company. The reason I associate the Mamba with the Deathadder is they share a lot in their shape. Anyhow, here we are six and half years later and I finally have a Mamba in the office. Only this time around it’s not the original, this year Razer reintroduced the Mamba under the same name but with a new design. I’ve been testing it for almost a month and it’s not time to dig into its features and tell you all about it.

Assassin's Creed Syndicate
     Tue, Dec 29 2015 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”After what was a horrible launch last year, the hope many have had is that Assassin's Creed Syndicate would heal the damage done and help the franchise move forward. Largely I believe it has accomplished that goal and to that end can recommend the game, but it is not as strong a title as I had hoped. (Mainly that is because of the story issues I described.) Still, if you are looking for a good and enjoyable action, adventure, and stealth game, this can scratch that itch. The graphics are visually quite good and the performance is okay, but it still has the random pausing of Unity. For me, the story lacks motivation and that hurts it, but many of the character interactions are very entertaining, so it is still enjoyable. The gameplay has some improvements over previous titles, a number of mechanics that are functional, but I believe need more polish, and the rope launcher is more limited than I think it should be. Still a fun game that hopefully heralds a stronger future for the franchise."

StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void PC Review
     Tue, Dec 29 2015 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink

StarCraft II finally comes to its conclusion with the third title 'Legacy of the Void'. The question is, are there still enough RTS fans out there?"

Razer Diamondback Chroma gaming mouse
     Tue, Dec 29 2015 | 11:22A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Razer's original Diamondback is considered by many to be the epitome of gaming mouse design. Is the new Diamondback Chroma really "the return of the legend"?
