Xi3 Making Valve’s Fabled Steam Box?
     Fri, Jan 18 2013 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier, we came across a hot item about Valve and their rumored Steam Box gaming console. Word came out that modular PC maker Xi3 was Valve’s hardware partner on the project and was showing off the result, a beautifully designed computer called the Piston. However, when we eagerly scooted over to Valve’s booth here at CES 2013 in Las Vegas, they told us that the story simply was not true.

Borderlands 2 Review
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 7:54P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Borderlands 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the sleeper hit of 2009, Borderlands, developed by GearBox Software. The original Borderlands initially flew under many people’s radar as 2009 was a year that saw the pending release of heavy hitters such as Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Left 4 Dead 2, Assassins Creed 2 and, Call of Duty 2 (A-lot of “twos” that year). There was also a game that was similar in setting, and to some degree game play, that many wanted to get their hands on announced a year prior. That game was called Rage. It didn’t help GearBox Software’s cause that the developer of Rage was the same developer many accredit for the birth of the modern first person shooter genre, ID Software headed by John Carmack. The fact that Rage showcased stunning visuals, and AI that was intelligent enough not to just stand around, and just be bullet sponges was enough to make many want the game in their hands as soon as possible. But to be honest we at TechReaction.net, even though joining the Rage bandwagon, did keep our eyes out for Borderlands as the earlier trailers for Borderlands, and game demos caught our attention. Take a look below to see why.

Frame Rating Part 2: Finding and Defining Stutter
     Wed, Jan 16 2013 | 9:21P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our previous article and video, I introduced you to our upcoming testing methodology for evaluating graphics cards based not only frame rates but on frame smoothness and the efficiency of those frame rates. I showed off some of the new hardware we are using for this process and detailed how direct capture of graphics card output allows us to find interesting frame and animation anomalies using some Photoshop still frames. Today we are taking that a step further and looking at a couple of captured videos that demonstrate a stutter and walking you through, frame by frame, how we can detect, visualize and even start to measure them."

Enermax Fulmo GT review - HTPX chassis
     Wed, Jan 16 2013 | 11:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review and test the Fulmo GT. Enermax has been going very strong with their power supply and fans. For a while now they also offer PC cases, and more recently they released what seems to be the biggest chassis I`ve ever laid my hands on. This chassis series has HPTX support for the bigger than biggest motherboards and some pretty cool features as well."

Meteor Entertainment and Adhesive Games have produced a gripping and fast paced game that is challenging, and very engaging.

     Sat, Jan 12 2013 | 11:46A | Games | PermaLink

A funny thing happened over the holidays. As we were busy engaging in the holiday rituals of overeating and profound regret, a number of folks across the web were spending their spare time thinking about latency-focused game testing, believe it or not. We`re happy to see folks seriously considering this issue, and as you might expect, we`re learning from their contributions."

Tech News: Is VALVe Gearing Up To Battle Nintendo Sony And Microsofts Next-Gen Gaming Consoles?
     Thu, Jan 10 2013 | 9:47A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Anyone even remotely associated with gaming knows about Steam. VALVe`s software evolved from being a lowly bare-bones digital-rights management (DRM) nuisance to a tremendously successful digital-content distribution system holding well over 80-85% of market share on PC. VALVe recently rolled out Steam`s Big Picture Mode, a new UI designed specifically for TV`s making it easier for users who prefer console environments of sitting far away with controllers in hand. The push for BPM was quite substantial, as it had only been in beta for a few months. For a company like VALVe that operates in VALVe Time, it comes as a surprise that BPM would be released (and finished) so quickly, especially considering that PC games and gamers alike prioritize mouse and keyboard desktop settings."

Guild Wars 2 Digital Deluxe Video Game @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, Jan 08 2013 | 9:48A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In their second installment of the popular Guild Wars franchise, ArenaNet has certainly bought out the big guns. In this article, Benchmark Reviews will be reviewing their Digital Deluxe offering, which includes some compelling extras for those that plan to be in larger guilds. The game features a heavily modified Guild Wars 1 graphics engine, complete with totally new audio and cinematics engines which take advantage of today`s DirectX 11 video and sound cards. With continuous events and structured player versus player, there should be plenty to keep you occupied for a long time."

Mad Catz Cyborg S.t.r.i.k.e. 7 Gaming Keyboard review
     Tue, Jan 08 2013 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The modular concept of the keyboard is very impressive. The typing experience is very nice, and the extendable wrist supports provide extra comfort. The only real complaint we have is that the numpad module isn't completely programmable. The aluminium base of the keyboard makes it a very solid and sturdy construction, and the touchscreen has lots of features. We have yet to test a keyboard that has as many options as this one. So if you're a gamer and your budget allows spending £220 on a keyboard, then the S.t.r.i.k.e. 7 is an excellent product.

Assassin's Creed 3 Performance and IQ Review
     Sat, Jan 05 2013 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ubisoft performed several upgrades to the Anvil game engine, resulting in the AnvilNext engine. Assassin's Creed 3 will be the first game in the series to support DX11. Assassin's Creed 3 also supports NVIDIA's new TXAA technology, but will that be enough to make up for a lack of DX11 features like tessellation and ambient occlusion?

Assassins Creed III Review @ Techgage
     Fri, Jan 04 2013 | 12:11A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 2007, the Assassins Creed series has taken us on one heck of a wild ride. The latest title is simply called Assassins Creed III, and it looks to be the most ambitious one yet. Will the questions surrounding Desmond finally be answered, or will this be another minor stepping stone in the oceanic enigma that is the AC story?"

Far Cry 3 Review: Welcome to the Jungle! @ Techgage
     Thu, Jan 03 2013 | 11:55A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Far Cry first brought us to its shores in 2004, PC gamers were given a real treat: open-ended gameplay and a highly-detailed world. Far Cry 2 brought us an even bigger world, but never hit cruising speed with most people. Does Far Cry 3 have what it takes to return us to paradise, or should it have remained at sea?"

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.
