Red Faction: Guerrilla 5 Years-Later Review
     Mon, May 19 2014 | 1:06P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Is *Red Faction: Guerrilla* a game worth playing five years after release? In my opinion it is. It definitely has its issues, but nothing too horrible, and what it allows and empowers you to do is still a lot of fun. Want to drive a truck through a building? Go ahead. Topple a building with just a sledgehammer? Get swinging. Be driven around as you launch rockets at anything and everything? Warm up your fingers. *Red Faction: Guerrilla*is one of the best sandbox games I know of, with all it allows you to do. It is not perfect, as missions can have limited avenues to victory, but the destructible nature of just about everything is a feature that makes it unique. If you are looking for such an experience, definitely play this game do some damage."

Red Faction II 11 Years-Later Review
     Sun, May 18 2014 | 8:17A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Is this eleven-year-old game one worth returning to? I would say no unless you just want to spend some time in something. Red Faction II simply fails to distinguish itself in any way today. The graphics are fine at best; the story is lacking and formulaic; and the gameplay is fun some of the time, but not all of the time. For that reason I cannot recommend adding it to your library. Now if you end up adding Red Faction II to your library by purchasing a bundle or collection that includes it, feel free to play it. There is some enjoyment to be had from it. Just do not expect much from it."

Intel Z79: Gigabyte Z97X-Gaming G1 MSI Z97 Gaming 5 and ASUS Maximus VII Hero Review
     Fri, May 16 2014 | 2:29P | Games | PermaLink

We have three boards to run through our performance tests today, all with completely different approaches to Z97 and they are Gigabytes Z97X-Gaming G1 WIFI-BK, the MSI Z97 Gaming 5 and the Maximus VII Hero from ASUS."

Sentey Aphelion Elite Gamer Series Mouse Review
     Fri, May 16 2014 | 11:18A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Again, my biggest complaint throughout seemed to follow my initial impressions for the mouse, utter cheapness. The mouse proved itself to be more solid than it feels after being able to stand up to a few smashings, but the general feel of the mouse just wasn`t there. It almost felt like a toy. It was overly light without weight options and simply felt hollow. I wasn`t convinced with it and was saddened every time I sat down to use it. However, it is only $50, which is quite cheap for a mouse with extra buttons, and relatively good tracking/sensing. Unfortunately, the bribery of all the shwag with the mouse didn`t persuade me to a different direction. A neat poster for the wall, some stickers, a cool carry case, and all the costs I would have rather had in the mouse itself."

CRYORIG R1 Universal @ techPowerUp
     Thu, May 15 2014 | 3:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
CRYORIG and their R1 Universal have redefined what makes a high-end air cooler. Packing some serious features and never before seen memory clearance on a cooler of this size, it not only performs like a champ, it could make the competition appear obsolete in comparison."

Daylight Review
     Wed, May 14 2014 | 1:06P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Is it worth running for the light, or shall the darkness consume us? That is hard to say to the point of it being something of a toss-up. I did enjoy playing Daylight, but it never impressed me enough to give it a strong recommendation. The graphics were generally good, but also had issues including the appearance of looking through a prism, occasionally broken geometry, and broken physics. The story is fairly weak and even predictable, but the telling is quite good. Daylight definitely sets its atmosphere well. The gameplay simply lacks the good design I would have liked to see it have, but nothing is too bad to be a real problem. If you enjoy survival horror games that are psychological in their design, then Daylight may be a game for you. Other than that, I am not sure who this may appeal to, as nothing really stands out that much beyond the environment it sets."
