GPU benchmarks: Max Payne 3
     Fri, Dec 14 2012 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Max Payne 3 is well-suited for three monitors. To be able to run the game on three Full HD monitors you will need a high-end graphics card with at least 2 GB of video memory. Out of the single-GPU cards only the Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 and AMD Radeon HD 7970 were able to reach 60 fps or more on Normal settings. The GTX 670 and Radeon HD 7950 fall just short of 60 fps. Since 40 fps is enough to enjoy this game, you're fine with a GeForce GTX 660 or a Radeon HD 7870.

Hitman: Absolution (PC) Review @ Techgage
     Wed, Dec 12 2012 | 12:18A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Much has changed with the Hitman series since it took a hiatus six years ago, both in and out of game. Hitman: Absolution has been released through a new publisher, and has been developed with a new direction in the story. Do these changes bring us closer to hitting the mark of excellence, or should the series have stayed in purgatory?"

Tt eSPORTS Ladom Mousepad Review - BCCHardware
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 11:26P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`m sure some of us at one point have accidentally spilled coffee or other beverages onto our mousepads and ended up with a soggy sponge. The next test is the water test. I poured an ounce of water onto the Thermaltake Ladon gaming mouse pad and just waited. After a few minutes of the water just sitting on surface and not soaking in I just wiped it clean with my lint free towel. . ."

Tech News: Cooler Master Storm QuickFire TK Keyboard Review - A Mechanical Revamp
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 10:19P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Introducing a plethora of new accessories, it was only a matter of time before Cooler Master created their own line of Storm keyboards. This certainly is not the first time Cooler Master has dipped into keyboards; indeed, their initial endeavors were great, but lacked hype. Exposure was definitely a trait Cooler Master needed to compete in an oversaturated keyboard market, specifically for gamers. Logitech, Microsoft, Razer, SteelSeries, Thermaltake; all have an arsenal of gaming products with mice and keyboards enjoying the most diversity. In order to compete, Cooler Master needed an equalizer, which they found in their Storm series."

Call of Duty: Black Ops II Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Dec 09 2012 | 10:15P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Black Ops 2 is the latest chapter in the 1st person shooter spin-off from the Call of Duty franchise. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is a continuation of the shadowy cold-war storyline introduced two years ago. Set in 2025 with narrative flashbacks to the early 80s that flesh out the character origins, Black Ops 2 expands upon the Call of Duty formula by introducing new nonlinear gameplay elements and alternate outcomes based on player choice. Also new is the use of DirectX 11 API to the Call of Duty game engine, bringing improved lighting, shadows, ambient occlusion, depth of field enhancements as well as a more GPU optimal performance unlike the first Black Ops title which ran on DirectX 9. Call of Duty: Black Ops II is also compatible with NVIDIA`s 3D Vision stereoscopic 3D gameplay and carries a performance rating of good for the campaign mode while the zombie and multiplayer modes are rated Excellent with the latest GeForce 310.70 drivers."

Far Cry 3 Performance Test: Graphics & CPU
     Sun, Dec 09 2012 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having passed four years since Far Cry 2's arrival, Ubisoft has revisited the franchise this holiday season with a third entry that more closely resembles the franchise's 2004 debut. Far Cry 3 89 is set on a tropical island, this time found somewhere at the intersection of the Indian and Pacific Oceans, and the story involves rescuing your kidnapped friends from the island's unhinged inhabitants. The latest release is built using an advanced version of the Dunia engine called Dunia 2, which is said to feature new water rendering technology, a realistic weather system, advanced AI technology, a new animation system, realistic facial expressions, motion capture technology and global illumination -- many of which are made possible by the game's adoption of DirectX 11 and can only be experienced on the PC version.

Hitman: Absolution Benchmarked, Tested
     Mon, Dec 03 2012 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Six years later and it seems the developer is ready to revive the infamous Agent 47 in Hitman's fifth game, which crept onto shelves last Tuesday, November 20 -- or the 47th week of the year. Among its other advancements, Hitman: Absolution is the first game to be developed using the new Glacier 2 engine. The updated engine was specifically built for Hitman, with a strong emphasis on enabling very dense crowds and allowing players to not only interact with characters but also to influence their behavior. The engine is said to be able to handle up to crowds of 1200 characters, which makes Absolution unlike any other game.

PlanetSide 2 Review The Best MMOFPS to Date? @ Techgage
     Mon, Dec 03 2012 | 12:07A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* The original Planetside graced our PCs back in 2003 and now, 9 years later, its successor is upon is. With it comes bigger maps, a bigger arsenal and a not-so-big monthly fee of $0. Does this new kid on the block have what it takes to prove that the MMOFPS is still relevant, or is this battlefield best lost in digital space?"

Use PlayStation3 Gamepad with PC Games @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 11:14P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever considered buying a gamepad for racing, sports, or split-screen PC games? Well, there are quite a few options from Microsoft, Logitech, and Saitek including the popular Logitech F710 and Saitek P3600. However, if you don`t fancy the grip of the Xbox controller, don`t agree with the colour scheme of the F710, or are just looking for something different, there is good news! The Sony DUALSHOCK 3 controller (designed for the PS3), with a little work can be made to work on your PC. Certain unique features of the PS3 controller, such as six-axes motion-sensing and pressure sensitive buttons, make it a viable competitor to the more popular options. In this article, Benchmark Reviews will demonstrate that one of the best controllers of all time can be used to score breathtaking goals, pull off amazing combos, and crush lap times in your favorite PC games."

Call of Duty: Black Ops II Performance & IQ Review
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Call of Duty: Black Ops II is the first Call of Duty game on PC to support DX11 and new graphical features. Hopefully improvements to the IW Engine will be enough to boost the CoD franchise near the top graphics-wise. We also examine NVIDIA's TXAA technology which combines shader based antialiasing and traditional multisampling AA.

SteelSeries Black Ops 2 Peripherals @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Nov 25 2012 | 3:56P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Its that time of year again, the latest Call of Duty offering was just released and I (and most of the LanOC staff) has been gaming it up. Knowing that we were planning on playing, when SteelSeries introduced their Black Ops 2 peripherals, I quickly hit them up to get a set to use while we played Black Ops 2 at launch. Our coverage on the game itself should be up next week after a weekend packed full of gaming, but for now you can see what SteelSeries has to offer while you wait."

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. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
