Gaming in Windows 8 vs Windows 7: what's the difference?
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 12:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After many hours of benchmarking, we can finally and convincingly settle the debate about whether gaming in Windows 8 is better or worse than in Windows 7. And the answer is: it's the same!

Call of Duty: Black Ops II GPU & CPU Performance
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For Call of Duty fans, developer Treyarch just delivered an early Christmas present when they released Black Ops II this week. As the ninth game in the Call of Duty franchise and the sequel to the 2010 game Black Ops, we are hoping to see something meaningfully new from Black Ops II. But as usual, our main concern from a performance article perspective has to do with the game engine which has been slow to evolve over the years. The key changes to the game engine include a new technology called "reveal mapping" and HDR lighting. On paper the upgrade also calls for the move to the DirectX 11 API for the PC version of the game. This means PC gamers should enjoy better visuals when compared to those using console versions.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Review - A Killer Sequel:
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the original Call of Duty Black Ops, Treyarch wanted to prove that it wasn't the "underdog" of the Call of Duty series. They were set to prove they deliver titles as good, or better, than Infinity Ward. While the success of that game versus Modern Warfare could be disputed, it seems to be widely agreed-upon that it was the best Call of Duty the company had ever created. With Black Ops II, the developer wanted to up the ante - and by all accounts, they have. Treyarch has proven Black Ops II to be the biggest evolution in the series, with key additions ensuring re-playabilty of the single-player campaign - something pretty non-existent with previous titles.

Duke Nukem 3D HRP: The Classic Only Better @ Techgage
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 4:07P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Despite having been a huge DN3D fan since its release in 1996, its taken me this long to give the fan-made HRP (High Resolution Pack) a try. It takes the games classic graphics and gameplay elements and puts them in overdrive. The result? A cleaner, high-res game that feels more natural than the original."

Need For Speed Most Wanted (PC) Game Review
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Criterion Games were responsible for 2010s Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, widely regarded as the best NFS game to date. Now they are back in the NFS franchise with Most Wanted, a reboot of the 2005 original and given their track record for driving games we could be in for something rather special here."

Crysis 3 Multiplayer Preview Shines, Even In Alpha
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Normally we don't cover games that are still in alpha. While beta coverage is typically a good example of how final gameplay is shaping up, alpha is a time when major design elements are still in flux. We're making an exception for Crysis 3's recent multiplayer test, however, to highlight just how gorgeous the game already

XCOM: Enemy Unknown Review - Tinfoil Hats Recommended @ Techgage

* It`s been a long time coming. Developed by the fine folks at Firaxis, XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a reimagining of the classic strategy game, but without the genre-bending tactics of other ill-fated titles. Will veterans of the original rejoice? Does it remain fresh for a new audience? Have I really been mind controlled? Read on to find out!"

Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard Review
     Fri, Nov 16 2012 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the past 5 years or so we've literally witnessed a rain of gaming peripherals designed and manufactured by a large number of companies around the world, some well-known ones and some well not so much. Regardless however no matter how many gaming peripherals we get to test most of them seem quite similar in both design and features while only a handful really steal the show each year (and that's not even certain) either because of their innovative nature or due to their second to none performance. Now as many of you know purely gaming oriented keyboards are perhaps what we see least when it comes to gaming related peripherals (mice and headsets are obviously more in number) and although many manufacturers keep releasing extremely durable mechanical keyboards their lack of features robs them from that classification. Of course currently in the market there are quite a few "pure" gaming oriented keyboards by manufacturers such as Razer and Logitech but as with all things there's always something above everything else and the latest S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 gaming keyboard by Mad Catz aims for the throne.

Ravaged @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Nov 14 2012 | 10:41A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When 2 Dawn Games contacted us about doing a review on their first title, Ravaged, I was both excited and nervous. Excited because I really enjoy indie games and playing stuff developed by small game companies. Indie companies are not restrained by being too large. They are able to listen to their fan base and give players what they want (to an extent) and it often leads to some really cool and enjoyable features in game. I was also nervous however because Ravaged because my experience with class based shooters has been very polarized, they are ether amazing or a total flop. Lets hope that being an Indy game will help Ravaged be one of the great games. With that being said, I head into the post-apocalyptic storm ravaged world that is Ravaged."
