Fallout 3 7-Years Later
     Tue, Dec 01 2015 | 11:41A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Seven years after its release, is it worth returning to the Capital Wasteland? I am a little mixed on that. Fallout 3 is definitely a good game and worth playing if you have it and enjoy RPGs, but at this point in time, I am not as sure if it is worth seeking out. There are just so many other RPGs out there today that are at least as good that it is hard for me to recommend purchasing Fallout 3 today. I can definitely recommend playing the game, but am a bit more hesitant about recommending a purchase. The graphics are dated and while mods can help with that, you cannot fully escape it. The story and its method of being told are both pretty good, even if there are some quirks to it. The gameplay is solid, even with some bugs, and the unmarked quests thing will always bother me, but only you can decide if that will bother you, too. Fallout 3 is definitely a good game that has earned a good place in video game history, but you have to decide for yourself if you want to return to that time.”

AK RACING Nitro Gaming Chair Review
     Mon, Nov 30 2015 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's somewhat strange when you think about it but although people spend all their hard earned money on the best hardware components and gaming peripherals they can afford not many realize that in order to use and enjoy all those things you need to be sited. Sure many look for a good desk chair which can provide them with adequate support and comfort but if i judge even by my standards (have purchased 5 desk chairs in the last 8 years) these chairs are pretty much always designed for office use and never really good enough for long periods of gaming. The problem up until this day however was that no manufactured focused on the needs gamers have and although i know people who have spent large amounts of money to get ergonomic desk chairs (200-400Eur range) the end result didn't change that much. The gaming industry however evolves all the time (now more than ever thanks to the increasing popularity of eSports) and so lately we've seen quite a few manufacturers release gaming chairs based on sports car seats very similar to those bucket seats used in racing cars. AK Racing is perhaps the most popular such manufacturer in the market today and today we're going to find out why since under our scope we have their Nitro Gaming Chair.

Star Wars Battlefront: Graphics & CPU Benchmarks
     Fri, Nov 27 2015 | 4:09P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Star Wars Battlefront is a truly gorgeous video game and arguably the best we've seen this year. Considering how exceptional the visuals are, the game's GPU demands aren't that exceptional. For example, at 1080p you can enjoy the game in all of its glory with nothing more than a $200 graphics card, the Radeon R9 380 or GeForce GTX 960.

Primal Carnage: Extinction Game Review
     Fri, Nov 27 2015 | 3:48P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The game needs to be checked out by people which are already bored of zombie games and really want to try something different. The graphics feel a bit dated, but if you like this type of game which is quite fast-paced, it won’t really matter this much; also, by using the older DirectX9 platform, even people with slower systems would be able to enjoy the game at maximum settings, without the need to upgrade. Happy Dino Hunting!

Tesoro Excalibur Spectrum RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Fri, Nov 27 2015 | 3:47P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although pretty much everything in the PC industry changes rapidly thanks to advancements in technology the keyboard and mouse combo are the only two things that have remained pretty much the same since the beginning. Sure we've witnessed the introduction of new and improved membrane and mechanical switches, extra features like macro keys and backlit illumination and different tracking technologies such as optical, laser and LED but in the end the shape and basic functionality of both remains the same. That being said mechanical gaming keyboards have become very popular especially amongst serious gamers, enthusiasts and professionals not only because of the increased durability (up to 60 million keystrokes) and feedback (both audible and tactile) offered by mechanical switches (always compared to regular membrane models) but also because of their features including the newly introduced RGB key illumination. Not long ago Tesoro introduced the Excalibur RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard and since it got a really warm welcome by gamers all over the world it didn't take long for them to update it by launching the Excalibur Spectrum Mechanical Gaming Keyboard model which we'll be looking at today.

Batman: Arkham Knight October Re-Release Performance Update
     Wed, Nov 18 2015 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yawn! Seriously, the third time we’ve returned to a game. Maybe it was my fault being a bit hasty on the last large update, but that update was the serious graphical update that everyone on the PC was waiting for and it seemed to have worked for a large proportion of gamers. Some still found issues with this update, but because it wasn’t a re-release, it sort of got swept under the carpet.

Arozzi Torretta Review
     Wed, Nov 18 2015 | 11:52A | 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 bit cheaper than the first one, but it should still offer decent quality and good comfort.

Vertagear SL4000 Gaming Chair Review
     Tue, Nov 17 2015 | 4:06P | Games | PermaLink

Motorola Droid Turbo 2 And Droid Maxx 2 Review
     Tue, Nov 17 2015 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not long ago, we kicked the tires on Motorola’s well-received Moto X Pure Edition. The smartphone impressed us with its Quad HD display and overall build quality, as well as its $399 price tag, which places it more reasonably below the lofty prices of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Apple iPhone 6S lines. Today, we’re taking a look at two new smartphones from the Lenovo-owned Motorola - the Droid Turbo 2 and the Droid Maxx 2, which bring their own unique value proposition. Whereas the Moto X Pure Edition isn’t carrier-specific, the Turbo 2 and Maxx 2 are part of the Verizon Droid line. The Turbo 2, which starts at $624, has higher-end hardware than the Maxx 2 and features Motorola’s new ShatterShield display, which is bound to appeal to anyone who has lost a phone to clumsiness. However, with a starting retail price of $384, the Maxx 2 is significantly cheaper, so if it can handle mainstream tasks and games adequately, there are plenty of customers who will be willing to overlook the lack of a shatterproof screen...
