Intel Z79: Gigabyte Z97X-Gaming G1 MSI Z97 Gaming 5 and ASUS Maximus VII Hero Review
     Fri, May 16 2014 | 2:29P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So for some time now we have known that the next generation Intel chipset was on the way and today it properly launches under the Z97 branding. 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."

Red Faction 13 Years-Later Reviewed
     Mon, May 12 2014 | 11:43A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After thirteen years, how does Red Faction stand up? I would say it stands up well as an experience, but this is not exactly a game you are going to be dying to play. It is fun, enjoyable, and well designed, so definitely play it if you have it. There are certainly some modern games that are less enjoyable than this, but that is the limit of its staying power. Red Faction is still a quality game, and that will always stand the test of time, but its age is showing. The artifacting of the graphics, the limited resolution options, and the short playtime all hurt it some, but if you are looking for a classic game that did gameplay right, this may be exactly what you are looking for."

CyberPower Zeus Mini-I 780 Gaming System Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, May 05 2014 | 1:47A | Games | PermaLink

Feenix Nascita Gaming Mouse 2014 Model Review @ TestFreaks
     Thu, May 01 2014 | 2:08P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have myself a new favorite mouse. Over my numerous years of reviewing products Ive of course had the chance to review many mice of all shapes and sizes but the one I have today is the best so far I think. The mouse is the Nascita from Feenix and its what I would call a no frills gaming mouse. What I mean by that is you wont find any special software, or weight kit or interchangeable sides or really anything but the mouse itself and thats not a bad thing at all. The Nascita is designed for gaming with the focus being on gaming plain and simple, it just works and looks great. Like all gaming mice these days the Nascita does allow you to change DPI from 800 all the way up to 8200 and theres even an LCD display to let you know what youre set on at a glance. Inside of the mouse youll find an Avago 9800 laser chipset and Omron switches that are rated for ten million clicks. The mouse is weighted and balanced and features an anti-sweat and anti-slip surface to make sure you have a good grip all the time. Read on to learn more"
