Logitech G602 Wireless Gaming Mouse @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Dec 04 2013 | 4:50P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was only a short time ago that I was taking a look at Logitechs new G700s wireless gaming mouse. Not too long after that Logitech actually announced another wireless gaming mouse that would be sold alongside of the G700s, this one is called the G602. Unlike the G700s, the G602 wasnt an upgrade to a previous model. The G602 a considerably different in design compared to the G700s and it also does not use a rechargeable battery. Logitech did however introduce it with a big promise, they claim 250 hours of gametime in its performance mode, an impressive number for a gaming mouse. Lets dig into the G602 and find out if their claims have merit and find out what its all about."

Logitech G510s Gaming Keyboard Review
     Tue, Dec 03 2013 | 4:50P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ultimately I ended up loving this keyboard. When I pulled it from the box I groaned a little thinking it was going to be another oversized gaming keyboard with hard to set macros and some stupid light up screen. After installing the software and not being bound by some clunky settings I was amazed. Full RGB color options are so rare on keyboards I couldn`t help but set every profile with some off shade color I normally could not obtain from a standard red, blue, green, or non-color optioned LED keyboard. I had a lot of fun with this keyboard if it wasn`t just messing with its settings alone."

Intel Haswell Linux Performance For Valves Source Engine Games
     Sat, Nov 30 2013 | 9:59A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this week I delivered some 13-way AMD open-source Linux GPU benchmarks when tested against Valve`s Source Engine powered Team Fortress 2 and Counter-Strike: Source games. Now up for testing from the Steam Linux client on Ubuntu is the Intel open-source Mesa graphics driver performance with Core i7 Haswell graphics."

Call of Duty: Ghosts (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Sat, Nov 30 2013 | 9:15A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If its not broke, dont fix it. Infinity Ward seem to be firm believers in this old adage. Sure they keep tweaking the game, but theyre not really ready to shake it up just yet. As news breaks Ghosts failed to outsell Black Ops II at launch, what conclusions can be drawn?"

Intel Core i7-4770K vs 3770K vs 2600K Gaming-Performance @ ocaholic
     Thu, Nov 28 2013 | 4:53A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When scrolling through the comments regarding our CPU gaming performance articles, quite a few of you guys were asking if for once, we could compare not only two but three generations. Today we`re giving this a shot but it turned out that especially the conclusion was quite a bit tougher than when comparing two CPUs. Nevertheless we`re hoping this article is also going to be an interesting read. We believe that quite a few gamer out there might be interested in seeing Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge and Haswell quad core parts with hyper threading in a gaming performance article."

PC vs. PS4 vs. Xbox One Hardware Comparison: Building a Competing Gaming PC
     Thu, Nov 28 2013 | 4:21A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Each has their strengths and weaknesses, but the user/consumer needs to know their expectations for each platform. Education and hard work will reward those who build their own PCs, but not every bit of open source software will achieve the results that the tight integration of the Xbox One will offer casual users who are not interested in getting their hands dirty. The PC might not match the price/performance of the PS4 and the expectation is that Sony will improve the platform over the years with updates to more adequately match the Xbox in terms of media serving capabilities."

SteelSeries Apex Keyboard Review @ APH Networks
     Wed, Nov 27 2013 | 4:14A | Games | PermaLink

With stunning lighting effects and a fully featured design, how does the non-mechanical SteelSeries Apex step up against the competition?"

Fussball Manager 14 – last version ?

Football Manager 14 caused a storm of indignation among gamers. Reason enough to check out if the criticism is justified!

Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag Review
     Tue, Nov 26 2013 | 2:53P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Is it the pirate`s life for you, or should Assassin`s Creed IV: Black Flag be allowed to sink beneath the waves? Grab you saber and prepare to set sail! I have found this game to be a lot of fun and a solid experience. It does have an odd place in the Assassin`s Creed franchise, in my opinion, because of how Edward Kenway and your out-of-Animus character fit into the Templar-Assassin war, with both being ignorant of it for so much of the game, but that does not detract from it. In a way it actually helps you understand what the differences are between the two sides by exposing it all from different viewpoints than we have had before."

Genius KB-G265 Gaming Keyboard Review @HiTech Legion
     Tue, Nov 26 2013 | 9:59A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are two USB pass through ports to allow users to plug headphones and/or a mouse into the keyboard. The KB-G265 is a full sized keyboard with a standard layout, except for the addition of eight hotkeys located across the top of the keyboard. The Genius also has a palm rest with LED lighting that matches the backlighting of the keys./"

Batman: Arkham Origins
     Tue, Nov 26 2013 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”The old adage applies here – if it's not broke, don't fix it. I very much prefer this situation here with Origins than when Bioware and EA changed up the near-perfect formula of Dragon Age: Origins in the sequel. While Dragon Age 2 is not necessarily a bad game, the first game was clearly superior. With Batman: Arkham Origins, we have a case where I can honestly declare this the best Batman Arkham game yet. It has everything Arkham City had with consistently better boss battles and a story that arguably rivals Arkham Asylum. But if you weren't hoping for more of the same, you may not see it that way. If you were hoping for the leap forward to be as grand as the one from Asylum to City, I don't blame you for being disappointed, I simply hold a different opinion.”

SteelSeries Apex Gaming Keyboard Review @ ocaholic
     Tue, Nov 26 2013 | 4:14A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At first sight, SteelSeries Apex will capture your attention with its light zones, size and macro keys. Apex features a very unique design, 16.8 million colors to choose, raised macro keys and other features which we will mention later on. It is truly a great piece of equipment for a gamer."

Google Nexus 5 Review, Premium Android Experience
     Mon, Nov 25 2013 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It almost goes without saying that the Google Nexus 5 is one of the most anticipated Android phones to launch in 2013, save perhaps for Samsung's Galaxy S 4. Previous generation Nexus devices from Google, whether phone or tablet, have proven to offer a lot of bang for the buck, excellent design and build quality and a pure representation of the Android OS. Not to mention Google regularly rolls out the most recent version of Android as well with these devices, sometimes well before it's available on products from other brands. The previous generation Nexus 4, like the Nexus 5, was manufactured by LG, though that smartphone didn't hit the mark like Google hoped it would. With their latest Nexus device, Google is hoping to rise above the noise in the now crowded 5-inch superphone space. The Google-LG design team has stiff competition this time around, though. The Samsung Galaxy S 4, the HTC One, Nokia's Lumia 1020 and even LG's own G2 are very impressive larger screen devices. And let's not forget, Google has the iPhone 5s to contend with this holiday shopping season as well.

Asrock M8 Mini-ITX Gaming PC Review
     Mon, Nov 25 2013 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even if the Asrock M8's style is not your thing, there's less room to argue that the M8 is unique and that was enough to earn our attention. We've been impressed with the looks of previous Asrock products, but the M8 is a clear step up having been designed by BMW Group DesignworksUSA, the driving force behind Thermaltake's Level 10 chassis, a case as overpriced as it is iconic.

Project Build: Lunchbox v3 Part 3 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Nov 24 2013 | 4:34P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now that you know a little more about all of the parts that are going into Lunchbox 3, today we are going to go over how well the installation went and then put it all to the test in a few benchmarks. This is where we can finally see how the part choices work out and talk about any regrets I might have with them. Of course Im most excited to see how it all performs. Then this coming weekend I can finally put it to good use at a LAN."
