Gimbal multiplayer spaceship shooter Review - XSReviews
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 9:16A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve got two big loves in video gaming: multiplayer shooters and spaceship creation. The former has a near constant indulgence with series like Battlefield, Call of Duty and Team Fortress, but the latter is one that I haven`t really enjoyed since 1998?s Star Trek: Starship Creator. Never before have I experienced such a compelling crossover of the two genres as Gimbal, an indie title produced by Colin Clark`s 8888888 Labs in Michigan. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Guild Wars 2 Review @ Techgage
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 9:16A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Guild Wars, the hugely successful subscription-free fantasy MMO, now has its first sequel: Guild Wars 2. The developers promise a divergence from traditional MMO formulas, including those used by the original. Does this new direction herald a new era of how we play MMOs, or is this an experiment that`s gone awry?"

Cooler Master CM Storm Trigger Gaming Keyboard Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Sun, Sep 23 2012 | 10:30A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In use, I am very impressed with the Cooler Master CM Storm Trigger gaming keyboard. The feel of the unit as a whole is very solid, and I am sure this could be a reliable keyboard for years longer than most other units I have used. Everything about the keys is nice too... from the feel and responsiveness, to the layout, and especially the back-lighting."

A Look at Tony Hawks Pro Skater HD for the PC @ Techgage
     Fri, Sep 21 2012 | 5:56P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* I took a look at Tony Hawk`s Pro Skater HD for the Xbox 360 back in July, and at that time, a PC version had never been confirmed. Well, a month later, it was, and its release happened just this week - and for a mere $10. Is it better than the console versions? Does it play better? Does it look better? These are the questions I sought out to answer."

Interview: 2Dawn Games on its upcoming
     Sat, Sep 15 2012 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earth is dying. Devastated by a pole shift, the planet's oceans have evaporated and its cities reduced to rubble. In its struggle to survive, mankind has split between two warring factions: the Scavengers, savage marauders hell-bent on claiming the world's remaining resources, and the Resistance, freedom fighters working to restore civilization. With humanity undergoing its greatest test, where will your loyalties lie? Currently in beta (keys giveaway at the end of the interview), Ravaged is the brainchild of Boris Ustaev and his crew at 2Dawn Games, who have spent the last few years toiling away on a fast-paced post-apocalyptic multiplayer shooter with a strong focus on skills, teamwork, vehicular combat and most importantly, fun. In other words, it's everything the folks at 2Dawn have wanted in a modern PC shooter, but have been unable to find.

CM Storm Trigger Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Sep 10 2012 | 4:20P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few months back Cooler Master allowed me to review The CM Storm Quick Fire Pro (QFP). In that review I proclaimed that Cooler Master hit the nail on the head when focusing on the important aspects of a gaming keyboard. If you read the review youll know that I really liked the Quick Fire Pro and then Cooler Master up and HAD to send me the CM Storm Trigger. The CM Storm Trigger Mechanical Gaming Keyboard for all intents and purposes is the smarter hotter sister of the Quick Fire Pro. Even though Ive been hooked on the Roccat ISKU Illuminated Gaming Keyboard recently why do I feel like Im cheating? I really need to get out moreThe CM Storm Trigger Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is the first gaming keyboard that Bob asked me to review in what I refer to as the dime-piece category. For the most part, regardless of price, the recent gaming keyboards Ive reviewed for ThinkComputers have been in the Mid-Upper price tier of gaming peripheral products. The Trigger on the other hand is in the highest price tier and is supposed to be the best of the best that Cooler Master has to offer. Lets see if it lives up to the hype."

The Secret World Gaming and Performance Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Sep 10 2012 | 10:39A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Secret World takes many concepts from existing MMOs and blends them together with a modern twist. The Secret World uses the current Age of Conan engine and features visual advancement when using the new 600 series NVidia cards. 3D Vision is fully supported to enhance the gaming experience. The games setting is modern day real world and uses twists of current mythology, legends, and pop culture to fuel it`s plot. Characters development uses a class free and level free system that allows complete customization and allows exploration of all skills./"

Steelseries Xeox Pro Analog Gamepad @ Rbmods
     Sun, Sep 09 2012 | 4:08P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Slowly but surely console accessories and gamepads have started working on the normal PC. Because of this Speedlink has made a Xeox gamepad that works on both the Ps3 and on a PC. This is a clear step towards making it better for the consumer so they do not have to buy seperate gamepads for all gaming consoles and computers.

Ocs Must Die 2 Review - XSReviews
     Sat, Sep 08 2012 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The first Orcs Must Die! title was well received when it came out just nine months ago. With a blend of solid third person tower defense elements and light hearted orc genocide, developers Robot Entertainment made a well formed and cleverly made game that compelled me to spend hours getting that elusive five skull rating on each of its 24 levels. But outside of these maps and the higher `nightmare` difficulty modes, there wasn`t much to the game -- there were only a few extra levels available as DLC, no level editor and no cooperative multiplayer. Put simply, there wasn`t much of an end-game. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Damage Inc: Pacific Squadron WWII @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, Sep 07 2012 | 9:53A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Aerial warfare first became a major component of combat during the Second World War, amidst a transitional period in motorized flight that had only been created forty years prior. There had been mixed results in the previous World War, but the enormity of WWII pushed Nations to invest their best engineering into airborne combat operations. The fight was everywhere, but it was most efficient from the air above. Mad Catz captures this historical time in the flight simulation video game Damage Inc: Pacific Squadron WWII. Each collector`s edition kit includes the popular Saitek Pacific AV8R FlightStick, imposing realistic flight controls into action for either simulation or arcade modes."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
