Ascend GPU & CPU Performance Test
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 2:25P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of our game performance reviews feature triple-A blockbusters, but we're changing pace for this write-up as we examine Tribes: Ascend, a free-to-play shooter released by Hi-Rez Studios on April 12. The Tribes franchise has deep roots in multiplayer shooter history. Considered a successor to Tribes 2, Tribes: Ascend embraces its heritage by incorporating the same fast-paced combat, tons of maps, weapons, vehicles and unique traversal mechanics. The game is built on a modified Unreal Engine 3 and only supports DirectX 9 graphics, but the recommended specs are relatively high, calling for a GeForce GTX 560 or Radeon HD 6950 with a quad-core processor. Considering those requirements, we're hoping the game gives our test hardware a nice workout.

DiRT Showdown Preview (PC) @ HardwareHeaven.com Being released on the new Codemasters Racing label, fun is what the focus of today`s preview is all about and in DiRT: Showdown we dispense with the normal time trials and rally gameplay associated with the franchise, moving to a much more arcade experience which focuses on destruction."

Tritton Primer XBOX 360 Wireless Stereo Headset Review @ HardwareHeaven.com With online gaming for consoles becoming more and more popular it is increasingly important that we equip ourselves with a good quality gaming headset, and since most people don`t really want wires trailing across the floor a wireless model is a must have."

Kinect Star Wars (XBOX 360) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Wed, Apr 18 2012 | 10:43A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kinect Star Wars (XBOX 360) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Kinect Star Wars differs from most games from the same franchise in that it offers a wide variation of game styles within the package. This isn`t just a case of running about being a Jedi in an action game as many might expect. That aspect is present but from the main menu, featuring interactive C-3PO and R2-D2 we also get to access to pod racing, duel, destruction and... dancing... modes."

Official PlayStation Vita Starter Kit @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Apr 12 2012 | 8:11A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The PS Vita is the newest handheld gaming system and with that, like anything else, comes accessories. Sure you could buy them from other companies but Sony had theirs ready at launch and one of them is what I have for review today that?s actually an entire kit aptly named the Official PlayStation Vita Starter Kit. In this kit you?ll find two cases, a screen protector, wrist strap, cleaning cloth and even a case to carry your memory cards and games so you can take them with you. If you?ve got a PS Vita then you need pick up this starter kit as it?s got everything you need to protect and take your Vita with you. "

Devil May Cry HD Collection (XBOX 360) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 10:19A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Devil May Cry HD Collection (XBOX 360) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com With the release of DMC: Devil May Cry, a reimagined take on the game universe, fast approaching Capcom are giving those unfamiliar with the series a chance to head back over a decade to the original, then through two sequels. With a HD makeover and bonus content as well as the special edition of DMC3: Dante`s Awakening all on one disc, at a value price, this might just be the release to whittle away those Easter holiday hours."

     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:26P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Diablo III is the sequel to one of the most popular games of all time; its launch on May 15 could cripple college graduation rates, triple the number of insomniacs worldwide, and slash national productivity. Believe us--we know. We've spent about six weeks with the beta and have just recently escaped from Khanduras to detail our findings. This time, there's a twist, however. Our preview is written in two parts; a big-picture examination of the game and a fine-grained, behind-the-scenes look at how Diablo 3 deals with some of the problems and design flaws endemic to its predecessor.

iBUYPOWER Erebus GT Gaming System Review
     Tue, Apr 03 2012 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Erebus GT, iBUYPOWER set out to make a slightly smaller and less expensive line of systems to complement its Erebus custom gaming series, which is now renamed the Erebus XL series. There are actually three Erebus GTs in the new line, with configurations based on the AMD FX platform starting as low as $899, but the one iBUYPOWER sent us to test is an overclocked Intel Sandy Bridge-based version, Radeon HD 7970 graphics that costs $2499 (as configured). Yes, that’s a lot of moola, but as you’ll see, you get a lot of bang for those bucks...

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 (XBOX 360) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Sat, Mar 31 2012 | 5:04P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 (XBOX 360) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 is upon us and as well as featuring The Masters, which takes place next month, the latest entry in the franchise also makes heavy use of Kinect functionality on Xbox 360 (for those who have it). The addition of motion controls doesn`t guarantee a good experience though so today we find out if a game which should be well suited to Kinect actually succeeds in improving over the traditional pad gameplay."

Thrustmaster T500RS @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Mar 31 2012 | 5:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to look at the Thrustmaster T500RS. This is one of the highest quality racing wheel/pedal setups on the market. Thrustmaster is known for building some of the most complex peripherals in the industry. From the wheels, joysticks to the insane flight controls for the A-10C Warthog game there is something for every gamer. With its build construction, paddle shifter, button layout and pedal arrangement all being tested out using some of the most demanding driving games, see if it?s up to par with what you expect."

Wing Commander: Darkest Dawn is Fabulous Fan-Made Goodness
     Sat, Mar 31 2012 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week, we previewed the launch of Wing Commander Saga: Darkest Dawn, the fan-built companion to Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger that's been in the making for the past ten years. We were excited for its launch. But now that the game is available, how'd the team do? Let us illustrate it thusly. The game dropped on Thursday, we started playing Friday, and as of this writing (Sunday afternoon), our weekend chore list is still gathering dust on the fridge...

Reader Submission: PC Gaming on the Go with Kainy (Android)

Are you annoyed with having your 18 hour WOW sessions get interrupted since you have to go to school or to work? Worry not, the fine developer known as Jean-Sebastien Royer has your solution. That is if you’re willing to drop $5.04. This is a remote desktop app that’s made to do one thing and one thing only, play PC games. At this moment the app does have its bugs and if you go into your purchase knowing that, then I think you’ll be fine. Even at this stage it’s an impressive app with a whole laundry list of features and is highly customizable. Hopefully that will get enough initial support to allow/motivate the developer to improve on the app and correct the issues people are having, like not truly supporting tablets and other small issues like that.

Gaming Friday: Getting to Level 20 in Realm of the Mad God @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 4:07P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just a few weeks ago we talked about Realm of the Mad God, the ?co-op fantasy mmo shooter? from Wild Shadow Studios. Even since then a lot of us here at ThinkComputers have been playing the game. I myself have unlocked all of the character classes, had many level 20 characters, explored many of the dungeons and even defeated Oryx a few times. Even though I?ve had some awesome characters with great gear I ended up dying and when you die in the game you are permanently dead. This is a real bummer, but it does keep the game interested. When you start a new character the first thing you want to do is get back up to level 20 so in this Gaming Friday I will be going over some of the easiest way to reach level 20."

CAPCOM Digital Collection (XBOX 360) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com

Posted by: STAFF
CAPCOM Digital Collection (XBOX 360) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Capcom have been one of the big supporters of downloadable classics with games such as Street Fighter 3 Online Edition making their way to the home consoles. Now they are taking eight titles of varying styles and combining them on one disc, calling it the Capcom Digital Collection. Fancy a bit of Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo: HD Remix followed by Flock, or 1942 Joint Strike followed by Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2 for a value price... look no further."

Total War: Shogun 2 - Fall of the Samurai (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Fri, Mar 23 2012 | 4:20P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Total War: Shogun 2 - Fall of the Samurai (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com It`s not often we review an expansion pack but we make an exception when the new content is a standalone game which offers a largely different experience to the original. This is the case with Total War: Shogun 2: Fall of the Samurai which is set during the 19th Century and explores the conflict between the Japanese Imperial throne and the last Shogunate."

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.
