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...

Flyzone Sensei FS RTF Trainer RC Plane Review
     Tue, Nov 17 2015 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink

The Sensei features FS, or Flight Stabilization, which makes the aircraft stabilizes automatically for beginner pilots learning to fly while the powerful brushless motors deliver the power that’s needed for aerobatic moves that you’ll soon be comfortable performing.

Fallout 4 Gameplay And Performance Review
     Tue, Nov 17 2015 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fallout 4 is finally here. Channeling its best 50's era paranoia and the allure of a warm, radiation-free bomb shelter, Bethesda’s newest RPG tells us doomsday prepping and cryogenics actually work—yay! Well, that is until they malfunction and you’re thrust topside to an irradiated, post-apocalyptic wasteland filled with vile mutated everything, all gunning and clawing for you... It’s no surprise for us PC folks that the PC version of Fallout 4 offers the most definitive experience by far, and allows the new engine to really shine. Unfortunately, consoles are locked at 1080p at 30fps, with lower levels of in-game image quality. However, though the game is not without is fair share of bugs and in-game quirkiness, it scales very well with mid-range hardware...

Fallout 4 Benchmarked, Performance Review
     Mon, Nov 16 2015 | 3:21P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Set in Boston 200 years after a nuclear war, Fallout 4 is the series' fifth major installment, based on a modified version of the Creation Engine first used for Skyrim in 2011. Many eager PC gamers are undoubtedly waiting to see how the game looks and performs so we've put together our usual performance analysis to give you an idea of it should play on your system.

Cougar 200K Review
     Mon, Nov 16 2015 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the 200K, Cougar adds yet another compact keyboard to its portfolio. There is a standard layout and the keyboard comes with plain and simple looks. Despite the fact that this keyboard has not been targeted at gamers, we find a nice looking and clean backlight with different colors

Tt eSPORTS Challenger Go Gaming Keyboard Review
     Fri, Nov 13 2015 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
LAN events have never been extremely popular where i live but even so over the years I’ve managed to attend quite a few both here and abroad some of which i still remember due to the fun i had there. Unfortunately although eSports in general are gaining ground not many manufacturers cater to the needs of people who attend such LAN events. Sure there are countless gaming peripherals in the market today by a large number of companies ranging from gaming keyboards and headsets to mouse, mats and even carrying bags but most are not really targeted towards use in LAN events but rather by gamers in general. Tt eSPORTS is amongst a handful of manufacturers currently that actually market gaming peripherals primarily for use in LAN events and one such product is the Challenger Go Gaming Keyboard which we've been using for almost a month now.

T150 Force Feedback Wheel
     Thu, Nov 12 2015 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is obviously a market out there for an entry level, force feedback wheel that has the features of the higher end wheels but will not cost a small fortune to acquire. Thrustmaster took this challenge to heart and developed the T150 Force Feedback Wheel. The company laid out a solid wishlist for the wheel, and worked to develop a product that would not break the bank. This of course has lead to design decisions that help to reduce the cost of the product, but know that the functionality matches that of higher end products.

Windows 10 for XBox One Update
     Thu, Nov 12 2015 | 3:09P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, Microsoft begins rolling out the most anticipated and probably the most significant XBox release that they have ever released for a console, Windows 10 for XBox One. The dashboard and user interface of XBox One will change drastically, giving users the look and feel of Windows 10 because well, it’s Windows 10 underneath essentially. Probably one of the most wanted features is backwards compatibility support for “some” Xbox 360 titles, allowing users to run and play their old games and their new ones made specifically for XBox One. Got rid of your 360 and all of your games to go with it? Too bad!

Logitech G920 & G29 Driving Force Review
     Sun, Nov 08 2015 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The G29 and G920 are fantastic racing packages that deliver a thrilling driving experience. The former is compatible with PC, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, while the G920 is for the Xbox One as well as PC. Logitech says both wheels are built for longevity. They don't look or sound radically different to the G27 but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

: 20XX Early Access Preview @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Nov 06 2015 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I got my hands on a key for 20XX a week or so before the demo was released for Mighty No. 9, and I remember when it was announced somewhat shrugging, and starting a new run in the formerly mentioned title. The similarities between the two are obvious, not only in their influence from the Mega Man franchise but also that they are both in this weird, pre-release stage that so many games find themselves in. I’m still very much looking forward to a modern day Mega Man from the original development team, but 20XX has managed to scratch an itch that has otherwise been delayed.

OCC has published a review on Mad Max
     Fri, Nov 06 2015 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In addition to being fun, the graphics and performance are also impressive. It looks very good and plays very well. The story is nothing special to me, but it does not fail at anything. Also, someone more familiar with the movie franchise might get more out of the story than me. At the end of the day, Mad Max has some quirks, does very little wrong, and does enough right to be enjoyable, entertaining, and fun. One thing I will say that could make it even better is some form of New Game+, or other means of resetting some aspects. I would love the opportunity to try some things again with my current equipment to see what crazy stuff I can do.”

anidees AI6v2
     Thu, Nov 05 2015 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The anidees AI6v2 is not simply an update to the original as the name suggests. It is actually a more feature-packed variant, with its predecessor still available for purchase. We take a really close look to figure out whether the additions warrant the price premium.

Tesoro Excalibur Spectrum @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Nov 04 2015 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in June I tested and wrote about one of Tesoro’s new full RGB keyboards, the Lobera Spectrum. While I liked a lot of the keyboards features, the styling wasn’t exactly what I would look for in my own keyboard. So when they mentioned their other full RGB keyboard, the Excalibur Spectrum I jumped at the chance. The share a lot of the same features, but the styling on the Excalibur line is a lot cleaner and simpler compared to the Lobera, so I was excited to take a look at it and find out if it would really be a better fit for me and anyone else who prefers a little bit simpler design. Well I have been testing it for a few weeks now and I can finally sit down and talk a little about how it performed, find out if it lived up to my expectations!

Logitech G920 Driving Force Racing Wheel
     Mon, Nov 02 2015 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall the G29 and G920 are fantastic racing packages that certainly deliver a thrilling driving experience. Priced at no more than $300 we would be all over these new Logitech wheels, but at $400 they don’t make much sense.

Cooler Master Quickfire Rapid-i Keyboard Review
     Sun, Nov 01 2015 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Benchmark Reviews has looked at a number of gaming keyboards of late, and most are stuffed with features: extra keys, elaborate macro definition software, dual-core CPUs and megabytes of RAM to hold all the key definitions and macros. And there’s also the elaborate RGB lighting that has become de rigueur in this market segment. So it’s almost a relief to see that the Cooler Master Quickfire Rapid-i is a compact, minimalist TKL (ten-keyless) version of their Quickfire Rapid series of gaming keyboards. Benchmark Reviews will check out this new minimalist entry to see if less really is more.
