Shadow Warrior 2
     Fri, Jan 06 2017 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”In the end what we have in Shadow Warrior 2 is a mix of good things and things that could be better. Fortunately the gameplay is where you can find a lot of the good, and for this game, that is where it needs to be. This is not a story-heavy game, so it being mediocre in that area is not a significant problem, and there is little to really complain about with the graphics. It is a fun experience, if not perfect, but is still fairly easy to recommend. From some of what I have read, there is supposed to be more content coming to the game as well, or at least a mechanism to further upgrade items. This is meant for those progressing deeply into the endgame, but I do still look forward to see it. Hopefully more story content will be added as well, for those not interested in playing into the endgame, and I would like to see some of what comes after the end.”

Shadow Warrior 2 Performance Analysis
     Thu, Jan 05 2017 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”All three of the GPUs I tested were able to handle the game very well, even at its Ultra settings. One technical exception is that the GTX 770 cannot handle the Ultra textures with its only 2 GB of VRAM. The Screen Space Reflections option is also worth disabling on the GTX 770 as it does take a lot to use, but it was not pushing the game into un-playable territory, leaving it at your discretion.”

     Thu, Jan 05 2017 | 12:10P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Z270E STRIX Gaming, ASUS has a well equipped motherboard in its portfolio, which comes with a bunch of interesting features. There are for example two M.2 Gen 3 x4 slots and a USB 3.1 internal connector. Apart from that ASUS refined the design of their STRIX Gaming series motherbards, removing all the orange accents that we've seen on X99 STRIX Gaming products.

Gears of War 4 DirectX 12 Graphics Performance Analysis
     Sat, Dec 24 2016 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gears of War franchise’s magical formula of chaotic action and a narrative which doesn’t take itself too seriously has made it an enormous success. Even though it’s often associated as an Xbox exclusive, the original title eventually launched on the PC platform and received widespread critical acclaim. Saying that, the later releases didn’t make their way to Windows PCs which is a crying shame as Microsoft focused their efforts on the console market. Thankfully, Microsoft’s new management has acknowledged the growth of PC gaming and the need to integrate multiple devices into a single ecosystem. The Universal Windows Platform is designed to act as a gateway for Microsoft’s software library while bringing PCs, Xbox and mobile phones together, leading to a more enriching user experience.

     Sat, Dec 24 2016 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

While a lot of gaming teams rely on sponsorship deals, Fnatic has gone one step further, producing their own gaming hardware and what better way to show people the products are great, than to use them themselves to win multiple tournaments!

Thrustmaster T150 for the PS3/PS4
     Thu, Dec 22 2016 | 12:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"There are so many great racing titles out today that push even high end computers, it is very tempting for many to jump into these titles. The experience of doing so with a good wheel with FFB is second to none. DiRT Rally, Assetto Corsa, and Project Cars are all visually stunning and require a fairly beefy computer to run adequately at high quality settings. $199 for a wheel that could see use for years is a small price to pay for the more visceral experience that it delivers in any racing game that supports it."

Arozzi is a Swedish gaming company that was founded in 2013 and specializes in gaming chairs and desks.

Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation
     Tue, Dec 20 2016 | 10:48A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”The easy question to answer right now is if Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation is worth getting if you do not already have a version of the game, and in my opinion, it is if you enjoy RTS games. It is fun and is doing many things right that make it very satisfying to play. Whether you should get it if you already have the original game is harder to answer, but I still think it is worth it. It builds on the original very well, and even though some of its features will be added to the original eventually, if you enjoyed the original, I think you will want to play this. Wait if you want, but I will still recommend it.”

If you are old enough, odds are you owned a 3Dfx card and played some of these games. Let us take you a trip down memory lane and remember some of the best.
