CAPCOM Digital Collection (XBOX 360) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 1:00P | Games | PermaLink
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."

Crusader Kings II Review @ Techgage
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 4:25P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Politics, intrigue, assassination and plotting. Going to war against infidels and pleasing the Pope. Claiming land from your neighbors and getting rid of inconvenient family members. That`s good old Middle Ages, for you. Read through Mario`s review of Crusader Kings II and please, please, do not attempt at home the things he`s done."

Mass Effect 3 GPU & CPU Performance Test
     Mon, Mar 19 2012 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As you've undoubtedly heard, the third installment of BioWare's Mass Effect trilogy hit shelves last Tuesday. Being one of the year's most anticipated launches, it's no surprise to see it with an aggregate review score of over 90. We've benchmarked Mass Effect 3 across three different resolutions with two dozen GPU configurations -- including AMD's new Radeon HD 7000 series. We'll also see how the performance scales when overclocking an eight-core FX-8150, along with benching a handful of other Intel and AMD processors.

XBOX720 and PS4 Consoles Revive PC Gaming @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sun, Mar 18 2012 | 1:08P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Electronic video games became a trillion dollar industry once they made the leap from quarter-gobbling cabinets to console and later PC. Home entertainment turned into a business dominated by the desktop PC platform for decades, but once seventh-generation Sony PlayStation and Microsoft XBOX gaming consoles debuted the market share quickly dimenished. Now many years later, modern mobile devices such as SmartPhones and UltraBooks are poised to grab the market away from what little remains of the competition. As fate would have it, PC gaming could be revived as a direct result of updated gaming console platforms such as the XBOX 720 and PlayStation 4."

All Zombies Must Die! (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 11:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
All Zombies Must Die! (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com All Zombies Must Die! is developed by Doublesix and Published by Square Enix. It is an arcade style RPG shooter with a self-consciously thin plot and a light hearted take on the zombie apocalypse scenario, this is a game focused on fun rather than story telling. Released this coming week the PC version is downloadable through Steam and comes with numerous fixes and improvements based on feedback from the console version."

Logitech G105: Made For Call of Duty Gaming Keyboard Review
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 2:04P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Switching over to the keyboard we are about to be looking at should really be like changing the color of my T-shirt. By this I mean the feel of the keys, the layout and the keyboards functionality are all something I am fully aware of and used to using. This is not to say they are exactly the same, as there are distinct differences between this new sample and the G110 I have been wearing out over the past year with all of these reviews. With most samples there is a bit of a learning curve to get used to the product, or learn the nuances of the software, but since I have used Logitech products of all sorts over the years, the software side is nothing new to me either. Today we are going to be looking at the G105: Made for Call of Duty gaming keyboard. This means that you of course are getting all the basic functionality that the G105 offers as well as having a few cool additions. With my G110 the LED coloration is limited to red, blue and various shades of purple to illuminate the keys. With the COD MW3 version, everything is glowing green to resemble night vision technology, helping to immerse you into the gameplay. There are also two sets of grey keys to help guide your fingers in the dark to the WASD and arrow keys."

Uncharted: Golden Abyss (U:GA) PlayStation Vita Review
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 4:11P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The other disappointing aspect of the game is that it is generally set in only one type of environment. Given the wide variety we`ve seen in previous games such as the second and third PS3 games, to go backwards like that is again disappointing. Clearly the PlayStation Vita system has to have some concessions made for it and the fact we are even considering it close to a PS3 level game is a feather in its cap, but with that comparison, some down sides appear. It`s definitely closer to Uncharted 1 rather than 2 and 3 in this respect. However with that said the game is stunning to say the least. It is probably the most beautiful portable game we have seen to date. Obviously with the power of the new system behind it that wasn`t going to be hard, but the environments are as intricately detailed and structured as its bigger brother which is quite an achievement for a handheld game. The game also includes full voice acting and sound effects which come out loud and clear from the PlayStation Vita system and is of a quality that the PS3 games have including strong voice work from Nolan North."

SEGA Virtua Tennis 4 World Tour Edition (PS Vita) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 1:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SEGA Virtua Tennis 4 World Tour Edition (PS Vita) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com SEGA are one of the first publishers to get behind the PS Vita and their launch week offering is Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour Edition. With touch screen controls, online play and motion sensor functionality included in addition to the standard tennis modes it could offer something quite different to the average console experience."

FIFA Football (PS Vita) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Mon, Feb 27 2012 | 9:28A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
FIFA Football (PS Vita) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com As well as supporting consoles to the death EA are also often in at the launch of new models and the PS Vita is no different with the latest incarnation of FIFA Football chosen as a launch day title. We last saw a FIFA title with the 2012 release on PS3 and found it to be one of the best versions yet so it will be interesting to see how much of that game makes it to the Vita and how the touch controls might change the gameplay."

SteelSeries Simraceway SRW-S1 Steering Wheel Review
     Fri, Feb 24 2012 | 4:25P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The day has come that I have fully tried out many titles with this new racing steering wheel and I think you are really going to like what you find here in this review and in the product, as I did. Conventional wheels need a desktop to mount to and a place for the pedals to go and hopefully not slide across the room as you use them. With this concept it is more about comfort and convenience while still offering you a very involved feeling on a wheel that doesn`t offer force feedback or vibration support. Since it had been a really long time since I used a wheel for games, I also made sure to get to Chris` house and tried out his force feedback setup with the chair and the works just to be sure I had a full perspective of what is offered currently in the clamp-on wheel category. What I will be willing to say up front, is even without the tactile feel of the wheels on the road, or the vibration of the car as you slide out into the marbles, it makes this wheel no less appealing or fun to use with your favorite racers, SIM or arcade games. Speaking of SIM racing, this wheel is built specifically to work in conjunction with Simraceway, but loads as a default wheel controller and lacks the need for drivers to work with almost any PC title offering out there."

The Darkness II (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Fri, Feb 24 2012 | 4:25P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Darkness II (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com In a game where we play a demonically possessed mob boss who is hell bent on avenging the death of his true love by any means necessary... eye gouging, impaling, ripping in half, decapitations... and with our source of energy being the consumption of human hearts it`s clear that this isn`t the average FPS game; but does it succeed in improving on the original and is it worth buying?"

     Sat, Feb 18 2012 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Simraceway aims to provide the most comprehensive game control experience on the market today, quite the task when you consider the competition includes simple wheels to all in one racing chairs. So let’s have a closer look and see how this pretender to the throne of racing wheels shapes up."

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.
