Wii to HDMI Converter Review @ TestFreaks
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 4:10P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Technology is great but sometimes it just moves to fast I think. Most everything we have when it comes to video is HDMI, but some arent for whatever reason. One of those devices is the Wii, hopefully the new Wii U will have HDMI but for now were stuck with composite or component and a relatively low resolution on our HDTVs. I recently got a handy little device from a company called Sewell Direct that can let you use HDMI with your Wii and even upscale it to 1080P and it works for the most part, for me it upscaled to 720p, which is of course better than 480p. So read on "

Smash Mute - The Big TV Mute Button @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 4:08P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After installing batteries and synchronizing the TV remote signal you are able to mute your TV with ease. The Smash Mute was designed to be so easy to program an old person can do it and we found that to be true. This also applies when you go to use it as you just push the big red button to silence the TV. Who cares where the TV remote is as long as you have the Smash Mute next to you!"

Sleeping Dogs (PC) Review @ Techgage
     Mon, Sep 03 2012 | 4:08P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* If you`ve been on the lookout for a gritty open-world gang-related crime game taking place in Hong Kong, you not only have very specific tastes, but you`re also in luck. Sleeping Dogs follows in the footsteps of such games as GTA, but adds in enough originality to set itself apart. Does this ambitious title live up to its hype?"

NVIDIA TXAA Brings Movie CGI Rendering To PC Games
     Mon, Aug 27 2012 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA's new Kepler GPU packs a number of efficiency and performance improvements, but one of its major features has been locked away until now. When the company launched their new GPU core earlier this year, NVIDIA debuted a new type of anti-aliasing it dubbed TXAA. Unlike other types of AA, which can often be forced on in the driver and applied to any game, TXAA required specific application support. According to NVIDIA, TXAA uses a contribution of samples both inside and outside of the pixel in conjunction with samples from prior frames, to offer the highest quality filtering possible. Funcom's new MMO, The Secret World, was patched last week to add TXAA and we took the game out for a spin to see what it looks like.

Top-Down Racing Destruction: Death Rally Review @ Techgage
     Mon, Aug 20 2012 | 9:04A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* What`s better than racing? Why, racing and blowing up your opponents, of course! Remedy has just released a remake of its 1995 top-down racer Death Rally, and it`s fun. The game has fast-paced racing, a ton of eye candy, gameplay that allows you to hop off as quick as you hopped on, good variety and a modest $10 price tag."

Test: What about your Intel Core 2 Quad? - Gaming Performance HD 7970 @ ocaholic
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 3:50A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here we go, a lot of people asked me to test an Intel Core 2 Quad under recent 3D games with an HD 7970 so here is what I did. Like for the Core2Duo test we published last week, I chose the most popular processor which in this case is the Intel C2Q Q6600. However this time we did not simply test it at stock frequency, we overclocked it to 3.0 GHz. Why 3.0 GHz only one would ask, well that way I was able to use exactly the same BIOS settings I did use for the C2D E8400. Just kidding, the main reason is that to run this processor fully stable at 3.0 GHz you don`t need any voltage increase and you can use a default bus speed which is 333 MHz FSB in this case. Enough talking, let`s see how the Core2Quad Q6600 clocked at 3 GHz will perform against today`s processors like the i7 3770K and FX-8150 under heavy 3D workloads conditions such as Benchmarks and recent Games with highest graphics settings possible at a resolution of 1920x1080. Let`s get it started!"

Knocking on Deaths Door: Darksiders II Review @ Techgage
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 1:07P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* In the original Darksiders, we assumed the role of one of the four horsemen, War, who`s been accused of unleashing the apocalypse on the world. In this second title, we play as his brother, Death, who vows to clear War`s good name. Though the stories are shared, Darksiders II proves to be one of the best aRPGs we`ve ever played."

Orcs Must Die 2 (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 10:38A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Orcs Must Die 2 (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com One game which falls easily into the low cost, addictive category is Orcs Must Die. Even keeping the name simple the idea was to stop a flow of enemies, orcs unsurprisingly, from reaching the end of the level using any means necessary to kill them. In Orcs Must Die 2 more orcs of all shapes and sizes must die and we have hundreds of ways to entertain ourselves in the process."

DiRT Showdown Review - Destruction Derby Meets DiRT @ Techgage
     Thu, Aug 09 2012 | 9:05A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* Take all you know about the DiRT series and throw it out the window, because Showdown is a unique specimen in this on-going series. The focus on destruction is huge, and with 13 different race types, there`ll be many opportunities to twist metal. Great graphics, fluid control and lots of variety. What more could you want?"

News: A look at hardware video transcoding on the PC

The market is rife with hardware video transcoders and software that can take advantage of them. However, making sense of that jungle of disparate offerings can be tough. We`ve tried to make sense of it all, comparing the latest transcoding logic from AMD, Nvidia, and Intel in three major video conversion applications."

John’s VR glasses experiments
     Sun, Aug 05 2012 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The final topic was that of John’s VR glasses experiments that he has been doing, as well as the work he is doing with the company Oculus. This is obviously a passion for John, as he talked a lot about it. He detailed out the issues with current head mounted displays, what he has done to mitigate them, and the final cludged together product that he was able to produce essentially on his own. He was quite excited to get in touch with the people at Oculus, as they have a nearly shipping product that takes HMD VR to the next level. Topics involved per eye resolution, optics, latency, absolute head position, and software support. This took up the major portion of his talk. It is an area that he obviously is very excited about and hopes to expand upon soon."

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.
