Cooler Master Masterkeys Pro S @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Apr 17 2016 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just a few weeks ago Cooler Master introduced their new Masterkeys Pro L and S keyboards. I spent a bunch of time with the L aka the full sized model but at that time I didn’t have the chance to check out the Masterkeys Pro S. Well after our review they were quick to get an S out to me. A lot of the features of the Pro L are the same on the smaller S but there are a few differences. So today I’m going to take a look at the Masterkeys pro S and show you guys what is different. This won’t be as in depth of a review as the original, but if you check out our original review HERE and then check this out you should have a good idea of what the new Masterkeys Pro’s are all about and if they are for you.

Tobii's EyeX eye-tracking controller
     Sat, Apr 16 2016 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tobii's EyeX eye-tracking controller promises to add more interactivity to some games by letting players take over certain in-game actions using nothing but the direction of their gaze. We spent some eyes-on time with the EyeX to see how it works.

review on Hitman
     Fri, Apr 15 2016 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Now for the question; is it worth stepping into Agent 47's shoes? I have been enjoying the game thus far and am comfortable recommending it to those that enjoy this style of action game. Whether someone should purchase it now or wait until more or all of the missions are available, I will not offer an opinion. I have enjoyed what I have access to right now and am looking forward to what else is coming, but if you want to wait to have it all at once, go right ahead. The graphics look good but the performance could be better, at least for me and my CPU. I am just going to skip over the story here, except to say it is building for more. The gameplay is fun and interesting, as it encourages exploration within the game, and possibly outside of it. Go ahead and look at videos of someone completing levels, because they might do something you did not think of, and that could lead you to new avenues of assassination. No two people are necessarily going to play any part of this game the same way.”

HTC Vive VR Kit Hands On: Room Scale Virtual Reality Has Arrived
     Thu, Apr 14 2016 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung’s VR Gear has been on the market for quite some time. One of the most talked about VR products of the last few years, the Oculus Rift, just recently begun shipping. And Sony is readying its headset for a Q4 release. Today though, it’s HTC and Valve’s turn, as retail-ready HTC Vive kits begin to roll out to those that pre-ordered the device. We have had the privilege to use the HTC Vive at multiple stages throughout its development cycle, and to this point, even though the hardware and software weren’t quite finished, we believe it offered the most compelling VR experiences yet. We just got our hands on a final, shipping version of the HTC Vive, however, and want to give you our initial impressions. What you’re going to see on the pages ahead is indicative of what consumers that have pre-ordered the HTC Vive will receive...

Hitman PC game analysis
     Wed, Apr 13 2016 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hitman has been one of Square Enix’s staple franchises over the years but this time around, they are handling Agent 47 a little differently. Rather than launching a full game, we are getting ‘episodes’ which are due to be released on a monthly basis. However, this is also one of the first triple-A titles to launch with DirectX 12 support which is quite exciting, so let’s dive in and see just how well it runs.

Tesoro Excalibur V2 Review
     Mon, Apr 11 2016 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Excalibur V2, Tesoro offers a gaming keyboard with mechanical switches and standard layout. As with all other high-end gaming keyobards these days also this one features a backlight and there are different macro modes. Apart from that Tesoro chose to use very solid plastic for this keyboard, which adds a lot to the stability and the overall feel.

Far Cry: Primal PC game analysis
     Sat, Apr 09 2016 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Is it worth entering the land of Oros and fighting for the survival of the Wenja? I believe it is. Far Cry Primal is a good game, with some weaknesses and good strengths. One thing I want to say is that it feels more like Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon than either Far Cry 3 or Far Cry 4. It is more like a specialized take on the franchise, than a full entry for the franchise. That is not necessarily a good or bad thing, but I want to mention it because I do not think it should be interpreted as the next Far Cry game, but as another Far Cry game. (Also I do not mean to suggest that if you enjoyed Blood Dragon specifically, you will enjoy this, but rather how both games seem to fit into the franchise.) The graphics are okay but could definitely be better, especially with the textures. The story does its job well, but could provide some better motivation for fighting the Izila tribe. The narrative, the telling of the story with a proto-indo-european language is very well done and does add to the experience. The gameplay is fun and works well, even though the setting leaves you without the machine guns and veritable cannons we may be used to having. The beast system does a good job adding to the experience and makes me interested to see how it might return in future games.”

Speedlink Parthica Core gaming keyboard
     Thu, Apr 07 2016 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although we spend a lot of time here extolling the virtues of mechanical keyboards and their switches, there is no denying that they are generally quite expensive. This is why sometimes you have to consider membrane designs. With Speedlink’s membrane based Parthica Core, you get programmable buttons, backlighting options, macro editing and adjustable response times of a high-end board – but at a much lower price point.

CM Storm QuickFire XT Gaming Keyboard
     Thu, Apr 07 2016 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve seen gaming keyboard's evolve over the past 5 years. First it was mechanical key switches, then backlighting, and now we are seeing RGB backlighting. While having lights and everything are cool and all if the keyboard itself is made poorly and does not perform well no one is going to be buying your keyboard anyways. That brings us to the CM Storm QuickFire XT, which has actually been on the market since 2013. Three years later the keyboard is still being sold and retains its retail value being sold for $92.17 at our favorite online retailer. The QuickFire XT is a full 104-key mechanical gaming keyboard, and that is it. No flashy lights, no crazy software, just a pure keyboard. Our version of the keyboard (SGK-4030-GKCL1) comes with Cherry MX Blue mechanical key switches, but Cooler Master offers the keyboard in all Cherry MX flavors. Let’s take a look and see why the QuickFire XT is still a top seller after 3 years."

Overclockers UK Titan Dark Zone Gaming PC Review
     Sun, Apr 03 2016 | 5:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclockers UK is one of the leading stockists of PC hardware and their engineering team produces an impressive range of custom rigs to suit contrasting tastes. Whether you’re looking for a silent air-cooled build, or extreme overclocked PC with premium water cooling parts, there’s something designed for your specific requirements. Often, whenever a new game is released which sells remarkably well, consumers like to pay homage with a system based around its theme. This can be a challenge especially if the game in question doesn’t have a distinctive colour scheme. The Division is an open world third-person shooter set in a bleak vision of New York City ravaged by a smallpox pandemic. This intriguing setting and captivating multiplayer confrontations have proved to be incredibly popular! As a result, The Division became Ubisoft’s fastest selling game on record and attracted a very passionate community.

ROCCAT Ryos MK FX Gaming Keyboard Review
     Tue, Mar 29 2016 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Ryos MK FX mechanical gaming keyboard from ROCCAT is massive, features the well-known Cherry MX switches and can be fully customized in terms of key LED backlighting and macros. Easy-Shift[+] available for doubling the functions of the keys and built-in headset/microphone jacks are available on the left side for easy access. What we did not feel really comfortable with is the non-removable wrist rest, so the keyboard needs quite a bit of space on the desk compared to other models."

Vertagear S-Line SL5000 Gaming Chair
     Mon, Mar 28 2016 | 1:19P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”After finding the most comfortable position for me I was able to fully enjoy the SL5000 from Vertagear. The faux leather covering held up well during my testing and the foam never got out of shape. Typically in a leather or PVC covered chairs I will sweat as the chair heats up during extended keyboard time. I found that was not the case with this chair. The included lumbar pillow and headrest are easy to attach and provide added flexibility to the equation to get the fit just right. The lift cylinder provides a fairly robust range to accommodate both shorter and taller users. This is the first chair I have used in a while where I was not sitting at the highest end of the lift range. That's a nice feeling that minimizes sway at the upper end of the cylinder's range of movement. Adjusting the fore and aft range on the seat back is just what you would expect while seated in your car. The spring loaded return mechanism allows the seat back to return forward with a minimal amount of assistance.”

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.
