Gaming Hall of Shame
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:41P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although some decent games do poorly for no good reason, many titles are so headscratchingly bad that you have to wonder why the developer even bothered. In the group of terribly bad games, there are the truly bad ones and then there are the big flops: those that have built an irredeemable amount of hype. Without further ado, here's our PC gaming hall of shame: games that weren't cancelled but should have been...

Prison Architect: One of 2013's Most Interesting PC Games
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Prison Architect is like 'SimPrison', if there ever was one, made by people who seem to be damn near fearless about making video games about uncomfortable topics. The game is from the indie studio Introversion, who have also made the saddest/best game about nuclear war. Here's a brief interview with Introversion's own architects about their newest work. They served up some fascinating answers about the possibilities of a game about building and running a prison.

Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Keyboard
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 brings a whole new level of gaming experience with its completely modular design. This feature packed keyboard is like nothing we have seen before. As we dive into the experience of the S.T.R.I.K.E. 7, we are going to see how this keyboard stacks up to today’s popular mechanical keyboards as well as the membrane style keyboards.”

ROCCAT Isku FX Multicolor Gaming
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"So while the Isku FX really is a good keyboard without any obvious faults in terms of gaming, there's not quite enough here for me to want to drop 100 bones on it. That's the price territory of the much sturdier and much more mechanical Corsair K90, CM Storm Trigger, and the Rosewill RK-9000. For quite a bit cheaper, you can get any number of non-mechanical keyboards from Logitech, Razer, SteelSeries, and others."

Long-awaited Xbox One Makes Its Debut
     Fri, Jun 21 2013 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Because "Xbox 720" was ultimately kind of a dumb name, Microsoft wisely went with something different for its new console: Xbox One. At Microsoft headquarters today, the Xbox crew debuted Xbox One, showed off its new features, and promised to give us more at E3 next month. One of the more impressive features of the Xbox One, at least at this point, is the enhanced voice and gesture controls it offers. With a simple voice command--"Xbox On"--you can turn on your Xbox and launch into your personal homescreen, which will remember what you were last doing. On the slightly more technical side of things, Xbox One was built with three separate "operating systems"; one is of course the Xbox One architecture, but there's also a Windows kernel on board as well as underpinnings that allow instant switching, multitasking, and other user experience-heightening features...

Metro: Last Light Review
     Tue, Jun 18 2013 | 8:49P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What about the nearest to it; Metro 2033? How does it compare to its predecessor? I would say they come out about equal, as far as overall quality and experience. As discussed in the story section, 2033 and Last Light have a different mechanic to their stories, as the earlier title drives you through the world, and this one places you in it. This causes some aspects in one to be better than in the other, so without taking these differences into consideration, you cannot fairly compare these two titles to each other. When you do though, you find two very well made games that serve themselves and their franchise very well."

Sandberg iConheli Bluetooth Helicopter
     Sun, Jun 09 2013 | 8:21A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Women like to think that all men regardless of age always remain children deep inside and they just might be on to something since we all enjoy playing our favorite game titles alone, with our friends and perhaps more times with unknown people from around the globe (even if they are not right however who am i to argue especially when something works in my favor?). Remote controlled cars used to be amongst my favorite hobbies around 10 years ago (i still own a Mugen 2hp 1/20 RC car) but due to the fact that there aren`t that many certified tracks where i live (the nearest one is like 60km away) i lost interest. Then i turned to RC helicopters but since the really good ones were quite large and also needed fuel to run i soon realized that once again i needed to operate them in specific places which were quite far as well (the law doesn`t allow people using them on rooftops unfortunately). Such limitations however don`t apply for all the small Bluetooth RC Helicopters that have flooded the market lately and one of those is the iConheli by Sandberg which has been in our hands for a full month of testing both indoors and outdoors."

Metro: Last Light Review @ Techgage
     Fri, Jun 07 2013 | 3:52A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last Light is an interesting game. Its not directly tied to the book series like the original was, its been delayed numerous times, and has even changed developer hands. Given all this, does Last Lights emergence herald a new classic, or should it have stayed in the dark?"

Mad Catz R.A.T.M Wireless Mobile Gaming Mouse
     Thu, Jun 06 2013 | 12:35P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So far 4 great things have happened this month, first Ubisoft Montreal released Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon (retro FPS that no one saw coming), SOE gave 1 free premium month to all of their PlanetSide 2 players (both Free and Premium members), Metro Last Light by Deep Silver/4A Games finally made it to retail (after several unfortunate incidents that led to the dismantle of THQ and sale of their assets to several game developers/publishers) and finally Mad Catz launched both their M.O.U.S.9 and R.A.T.M Bluetooth wireless mice. Now as most of you are aware we did test the M.O.U.S.9 a few days ago which in the end left us with mixed impressions especially because of its rather low DPI and somewhat high price tag so although my quest for the perfect notebook wireless mouse continues it`s very possible that the R.A.T.M wireless mobile gaming mouse which we have here with us will be the one to rule them all."

MSI Z87-G45 Gaming vs. Gigabyte Z87-D3HP Motherboard Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Today we take a look at two boards which look to offer a value option in the Z87 market while maintaining as many features as possible from high end products. First up is Gigabytes Z87-D3HP and then we have the MSI Z87-G45 Gaming. Both will be tested in a selection of synthetic and real world tests which include Crysis 3, Grid 2 and the brand new PCMark 8 all with the i7-4770K on board."

MSI Z87-G45 Gaming @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jun 01 2013 | 2:13P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our first look at a non-Intel Z87 motherboard today is the Z87-G45 Gaming from the folks over at MSI. With a gaming focus I am really excited to see what the board is all about. At a quick glance at both the packaging and the board itself its clear that MSI is going with the dragon theme that we saw on a few of their notebooks this year at CES. Im curious if the MSI Z87-G45 Gaming will be on fire, or just fizzle out. Lets take a closer look and find out!"

Metro: Last Light @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, May 31 2013 | 10:14A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the first-person shooter genre all but locked down by staples like the Call of Duty and Battlefield franchises sometimes it is refreshing to get the chance to see something new. The release of 4A Games Metro 2033 in 2010 was one such breath of fresh air so much so that a sequel was in the works almost immediately. Mired in delays that had very little to do with the game itself, however, it isnt until now that we have gotten the chance to play it. It is finally time to see if Metro: Last Light stands up to the amazing visuals and story-driven single player that the original did so well."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges.
