Hard Reset (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Fri, Dec 09 2011 | 2:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hard Reset (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Last month we previewed Hard Reset for the PC and found it to be a romping, stomping, carnage filled chaotic FPS with enjoyable gameplay and an engrossing environment. It combines all of the best bits of classic shoot `em` ups and sets it in a Blade Runner/Cyber Punk 2020 style universe. This coupled with between level cut scenes reminiscent of a Frank Miller comic made the game stylish and engaging throughout."

Antec rockus 3D 2.1 Review - XSReviews

Posted by: STAFF
If you`ve broken, lost or squashed the standard headset that comes with each Xbox 360, you don`t just have to buy another Microsoft-branded one. There are plenty of third party headsets of varying quality and some -- like the GameCom X10 -- can be found for less than the official version. Let`s see how it compares!"

iBuyPower BTS 11 Gaming PC
     Sat, Nov 19 2011 | 9:33A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some might say, ?Hey, I could build a rig similar, or better, for a lot less.? In actuality, while doing a price comparison via Newegg with the different components the system comes with, including the operating system ? some parts we couldn?t find to include in the price comparison, like the Xion 700W PSU, the actual RAM, and iBuyPower?s water cooling solution, so similar parts were priced out instead ? we found that it would cost about the same as what iBuyPower is offering the BTS 11 for."

Battlefield 3 Beta Performance Testing and Image Quality Evaluation - Day 1
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 9:14P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Both NVIDIA and AMD are going to love what Battlefield 3 does for their sales - and what it might have done already. I have gotten more emails and questions on our podcast as well as TWICH (This Week in Computer Hardware) about upgrades for BF3 in the last 3 months than I can remember so I know it is a hot topic for the gaming community. Based on my initial performance evaluation it seems that the worries were at least somewhat warranted - a GTX 560 Ti, currently selling for about $220, doesn`t quite cut it at Ultra quality settings in my book."

WARGAMING?s World of Tanks for the PC Platform Reviewed
     Tue, Nov 15 2011 | 4:53A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Futurelooks relieves X79 testing anger by blowing up some tanks ... *WARGAMING?s World of Tanks for the PC Platform Reviewed* I?m typically a fan of FPS (first person shooter) games. However, I do occasionally enjoy games that require some strategy, dexterity and a challenging learning curve. In the spirit of trying something new, I gave World of Tanks a shot at PAX Prime 2011 (in Seattle!) a shot. I was a bit curious about what all the hubbub was with these new free-to-play games showing up. Little did I know just how interesting the game and story behind it would be. * * *"

Batman: Arkham City Performance After The DX11 Patch @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Nov 12 2011 | 1:30P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It took nearly two weeks, but on December 7th, 2011 a patch was released for Batman: Arkham City that `fixed` DX11 performance, but only for those running 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows. Those running 32-bit versions of the operating system will have to wait for another patch that will come at a future date. We played the game on the patch with various card and while single GPU gaming in DX11 mode on Batman: Arkham City has greatly improved we did still find some issues..."

EA?s Origin Vs. Valve?s Steam ? A Comparison of Two PC Game Distribution Platforms
     Thu, Nov 10 2011 | 2:56A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Futurelooks compares EA`s Origin to the established Valve Steam game distribution platform ... *EA?s Origin Vs. Valve?s Steam ? A Comparison of Two PC Game Distribution Platforms* A few months ago, EA released news they were setting up their own digital distribution service call Origin. Unlike GameStop?s Impulse or Direct2Drive which are site based, Origin is a software client similar to Steam that you install to manage your games. While its true there is nothing stopping you from using both, the obvious similarities and contrasts between Origin and Steam beg to be compared. Being big game fans, we explore how well Origin stacks up to Valve?s Steam. * * *"

Guys talk, you hear things. And at this year's E3 HardOCP picked up a lot of information about the upcoming hardware in the next generation consoles. It will be interesting to see if our rumor mill churns up truth or fiction. We wanted to get this out the week after E3, but we had some I's to dot and some T's to cross.

Crysis 2 DX11 Tessellation & High-Res Texture Pack
     Fri, Sep 02 2011 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Attempting to install the new Crysis 2 1.9 update and added DX11 Tessellation & High-Res Texture Pack felt like anything but a "gift." We give you our first hand experience and a treasure trove of screen shots for good measure. Crysis 2 is a little closer to what it should have been at launch, but certainly the gameplay is still meh.

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.
