Grand Theft Auto V Review
     Sun, May 31 2015 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The graphics are very good and what blemishes that do exist are easily forgiven. Performance could be better, but as I suspect that comes down to my specific hardware and how I go for highest playable settings, I would consider this a concern rather than an issue. The story is both fun to experience and very well done. I really would have expected weaknesses due to its complexity, but none existed that I noticed. Gameplay is strong and solid, and really the only weaknesses here are more to do with the Rockstar Editor feature. I did have fun playing GTA Online alone, so I am sure it can add a great deal to the experience when played with friends.”

What exactly happens to teams and players that partake in activities like betting rings and match-fixing scandals? Valve isn't kind."

Kingston HyperX FURY Pro Gaming
     Mon, May 25 2015 | 7:35P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston has been building their HyperX gaming brand over the past couple of years and have really come out with some great gaming-focused products. Of course we know the HyperX line for great memory and SSDs, but they also have gaming headsets and mousepads. Today we will be taking a look at one of the their latest mousepads in the HyperX FURY Pro. This mousepad has a high-quality fabric pad that’s soft yet resistant and heat-treated for a controlled glide. Kingston actually offers this mousepad in four different sizes, they sent us the Large version (HX-MPFP-L) which has official dimensions of 420mm x 500mm. Let’s get to gaming and see how well we like this mousepad!"

Assassin's Creed Rogue: tested with 23 GPUs
     Mon, May 25 2015 | 6:28P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Only after cranking up the resolution to Ultra HD do we see substantial performance differences. Only the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X and the dual-GPU AMD Radeon R9 295X2 are capable of reaching the 60 fps cap when using the highest settings. When looking at the frame times, we see that Nvidia users need at least a GTX 780 or 970 to obtain a 99th percentile value of below 30 ms (and with it, a smooth gaming experience). AMD users need at least a Radeon R9 280X, although the 280 and 285 aren't too far above the threshold.

EVGA Torq X5 Optical gaming mouse
     Mon, May 25 2015 | 6:27P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we look at the new eVGA Torq X5 gaming mouse built around the high grade Pixart 3988 optical sensor. It has 8 programmable buttons built in and a max reporting rate of 1000hz. It is attractively designed in white, with an ambidextrous design and some tasteful lighting. Is it worth the £35 asking price?

SteelSeries Sensei Wireless Gaming Mouse Review
     Sun, May 24 2015 | 1:33P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After waiting for quite a few years to play/enjoy the next chapters of two very special PC titles it was only natural that the moment The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt (it's finally here) and Galactic Civilizations III made their debut we'd cut all ties with the outside world (well not exactly but you get the point) for at least a week (trust me when i say that even a week wasn't enough). So since it so happened that both titles got released during the past week once again we had very little choice other than to focus in wrapping up the reviews of some very interesting and unique gaming peripherals we've been using for quite a while now. Obviously as you can all imagine we chose to test the ones that would also offer us the best possible experience with the above titles and one of those was no other than the Sensei Wireless Gaming Mouse by our very good friends over at SteelSeries.

Ozone Argon Advanced Pro Laser Gaming Mouse Review
     Wed, May 20 2015 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ozone are one of my all time favourite gaming brands. Time and time again they’ve shown us that they can make a great gaming peripheral, so I’m really eager to see what the Argon has to offer. A great gaming mouse may not actually make you a better gamer, but it can certainly enhance the experience and given Ozone have a solid track history, I think we’ll be in for a real treat today.

Kingston HyperX FURY Pro Gaming Mouse Pad @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 8:51P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I’m not sure if everyone else has been watching, but Kingston has been slowly expanding their product lines a little. They are obviously known for their memory and later their SSDs and flash drives. But they have also been dabbling in headsets with their HyperX brand. They started out by partnering with other manufactures but recently they have introduced their own headsets and they have been very popular from what I have seen. Well around that time they also quietly introduced a line of mouse pads. I guess they figure that a HyperX fan might be interested in keeping the HyperX trend going with a mouse pad. So today I’m going to take a quick look at the HyperX FURY Pro Gaming Mouse Pad and see what they have going on.

Turtle Beach Impact 700 Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 8:50P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently, I’ve been getting engrossed in the world of Turtle Beach peripherals. The company announced they would be breaking away from being an audio only company, set to explore the world of keyboards and mice and we were very impressed with the products we saw at CES 2015. More recently, we’ve been lucky enough to play around with their gorgeous GRIP series mice, such as the GRIP 500 which we recently review and if that’s just a taste of things to come, we should be in for a real treat with their keyboard products.

i-Rocks Golem Series K50E Scissor-Switch Gaming Keyboard Review
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 8:39P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been almost a year since I reviewed the fantastic i-Rocks Rock Series K10 Gaming Keyboard, which I still regard as one of the best budget friendly gaming keyboards money can buy. Today is a special day, as it marks the second time I’ve got my hands on an i-Rocks keyboard and if it’s even half as good as the first one, we should be in for a real treat.

Topre Type Heaven @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to picking out a mechanical keyboard there are nearly as many options as there are people. When it comes to what keyswitch you prefer most of you think of just the color options that Cherry switches have but more and more other keyswitch types have been coming into the picture. With that you need to look at the switch type before even getting into colors. A good example of this are Topre’s. We covered a variation on them with the Novatouch but today I’m going to be taking a look at a Topre keyboard directly from Topre, the Type Heaven. This is one of those weird situations where this specific keyboard is considered an entry level Topre keyboard when compared to other Topre keyboards, but that puts it up with higher end Cherry keyboards. So today I want to check out what it is all about and see if this is an option that you should be looking at when shopping for a new mechanical keyboard.

Cougar 200K Gaming Keyboard @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, May 08 2015 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few months ago I took a look at one of Cougars new mechanical gaming keyboards as well as one of their mice. The 700K was a surpassingly good keyboard, I was caught off guard by a fairly new company that had clearly put a lot of time into developing the 700K. Well today here I am again about to check out another Cougar keyboard, this time though this is a little more of a budget focused keyboard. This is the 200K. Cougar swapped out the Cherry key switches for scissor key switches and cut back on the features. Today I’m going to check it out and see if it still has the pedigree of the 700K and find out if this is worth a look when looking for a cheap gaming keyboard.

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.
