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.

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?"

Posted by: STAFF
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."

John Carmack's annual keynote address
     Sun, Aug 05 2012 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"id Software co-founder John Carmack's annual keynote address started off on a somber note as he apologized for several issues gamers experienced with graphics driver issues when they released their triple AAA title "Rage" for the PC in October last year. Carmack discussed Rage's disappointing PC debut and stated it was "poorly handled" in its lack of driver support. After discussing id Software's Doom 3 RPG Edition for iOS they are demo'ing at Quakecon, Carmack emphasized that the company needs to focus its efforts on Doom 4 development, which means they will be repurposing their mobile development team to work on Doom 4 until it's completed."

     Wed, Aug 01 2012 | 11:59A | Games | PermaLink

There`s much reason to rejoice for Tony Hawk`s Pro Skater fans as Robomodo has just released a series reboot, aiming to give fans back the THPS they remember so fondly."

Tt eSPORTS Saphira Gaming Mouse Review - XSReviews
     Mon, Jul 30 2012 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This mouse is marked out from its bretheren on the Tt eSPORTS website through its designer -- the StarCraft player White-Ra. White-Ra is a well known figure in the StarCraft II gaming community -- the Ukranian Protoss is overwhelming well mannered towards friends, opponents and fans alike and his gramatically deviant sayings set him apart. The two most famous are `We make expand then defense it` and `special tactics!` This mouse takes inspiration from the latter phrase, but will it be able to become as well loved as its designer? Let`s find out. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Manhattan Stealth Touch Mouse review
     Mon, Jul 30 2012 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Manhattan Stealth Touch Mouse is a very stylish mouse suitable for left- and right-handed people. It has no physical buttons whatsoever. You do hear a click when you nudge the area where traditionally the left or right mouse button is situated. The fact that it's wireless and small makes it best suited for on-the-go use with a laptop. The PowerPoint slide feature is a practical extra feature as well.

     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 11:50A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

Davis`s partner, Leo Delgado, tags along, since he seems to have nothing better to do and it`s just as well he does because Vanguard City is about to be attacked by an invasion of thuggish alien types called Lutadores."

Gaming Like Its 1999: Building A Legacy Windows Gaming PC
     Wed, Jul 25 2012 | 10:29A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The reward for this modest budget and effort is warm-and-fuzzy nostalgia and the ability to buy and play any older game that you`d like rather than just those available on GOG. Im no longer reliant on digital downloads for my classic gaming experience. I can buy a 90s-era games and enjoy them. There are plenty of these at thrift stores for just a few bucks each. And its not just about fun - its also about preservation. When I buy these games, they are mine, and I will always have them unless the discs are physically destroyed. This sense of ownership is something that I no longer obtain from modern games. "

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.
