Ocs Must Die 2 Review - XSReviews
     Sat, Sep 08 2012 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The first Orcs Must Die! title was well received when it came out just nine months ago. With a blend of solid third person tower defense elements and light hearted orc genocide, developers Robot Entertainment made a well formed and cleverly made game that compelled me to spend hours getting that elusive five skull rating on each of its 24 levels. But outside of these maps and the higher `nightmare` difficulty modes, there wasn`t much to the game -- there were only a few extra levels available as DLC, no level editor and no cooperative multiplayer. Put simply, there wasn`t much of an end-game. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Damage Inc: Pacific Squadron WWII @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, Sep 07 2012 | 9:53A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Aerial warfare first became a major component of combat during the Second World War, amidst a transitional period in motorized flight that had only been created forty years prior. There had been mixed results in the previous World War, but the enormity of WWII pushed Nations to invest their best engineering into airborne combat operations. The fight was everywhere, but it was most efficient from the air above. Mad Catz captures this historical time in the flight simulation video game Damage Inc: Pacific Squadron WWII. Each collector`s edition kit includes the popular Saitek Pacific AV8R FlightStick, imposing realistic flight controls into action for either simulation or arcade modes."

Gigabyte Aivia Krypton Mouse Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Fri, Sep 07 2012 | 9:34A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Who would have thought that Krypton, the home planet of Superman, would be reduced to the tiny size of a gaming-grade mouse? Well, that`s the name of the new model from Gigabyte`s Aivia line. It features an innovation right out of the mind of Jor-El, the scientist father of the Man of Steel: two interchangeable under plates, each one with a different set of feet (Teflon and ceramic) that delivers a different sliding control. We`ll talk about this characteristic and other features after we describe the product."

Posted by: STAFF
During last weeks Gamescom, which takes place once a year in Cologne, we got the chance to check out 2K Interactives upcoming Title XCOM - Enemy Unknown. Basically the game is an improved remake of the original which had been released all the way back in 1994. Nevertheless, the concept and the ideas sound promising."

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Review @ Techgage

Posted by: STAFF
* The latest incarnation of the world`s most popular anti-terrorist game series, Counter-Strike, has just arrived. Global Offensive brings many changes to core mechanics, adds new game modes, and improves visuals. Will these changes help bring back old players, or has the bomb finally detonated on the series?"

Posted by: STAFF
Diablotek has sent us the Cyclops mid-tower from their gamer series. It sports USB 3.0, massive air cooling, and the possibility to use water cooling. The Cyclops promises easy assembly with the minimum use of tools when installing hardware. However, enough of the small talk and lets get moving on this review to see how well this chassis does in our testing."

The Rebirth of PC Gaming - Bring on the Modders! @ Techgage
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 9:20A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* The importance of modding in PC gaming shouldn`t be understated, but at the moment, it`s not big business. For that reason many developers shun the idea of awarding its customers with robust modding tools. What could be done to change that, and better PC gaming as a whole? Let`s explore the possibilities."

Wii to HDMI Converter Review @ TestFreaks
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 4:10P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Technology is great but sometimes it just moves to fast I think. Most everything we have when it comes to video is HDMI, but some arent for whatever reason. One of those devices is the Wii, hopefully the new Wii U will have HDMI but for now were stuck with composite or component and a relatively low resolution on our HDTVs. I recently got a handy little device from a company called Sewell Direct that can let you use HDMI with your Wii and even upscale it to 1080P and it works for the most part, for me it upscaled to 720p, which is of course better than 480p. So read on "

Smash Mute - The Big TV Mute Button @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 4:08P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After installing batteries and synchronizing the TV remote signal you are able to mute your TV with ease. The Smash Mute was designed to be so easy to program an old person can do it and we found that to be true. This also applies when you go to use it as you just push the big red button to silence the TV. Who cares where the TV remote is as long as you have the Smash Mute next to you!"

Sleeping Dogs (PC) Review @ Techgage
     Mon, Sep 03 2012 | 4:08P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* If you`ve been on the lookout for a gritty open-world gang-related crime game taking place in Hong Kong, you not only have very specific tastes, but you`re also in luck. Sleeping Dogs follows in the footsteps of such games as GTA, but adds in enough originality to set itself apart. Does this ambitious title live up to its hype?"

NVIDIA TXAA Brings Movie CGI Rendering To PC Games
     Mon, Aug 27 2012 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA's new Kepler GPU packs a number of efficiency and performance improvements, but one of its major features has been locked away until now. When the company launched their new GPU core earlier this year, NVIDIA debuted a new type of anti-aliasing it dubbed TXAA. Unlike other types of AA, which can often be forced on in the driver and applied to any game, TXAA required specific application support. According to NVIDIA, TXAA uses a contribution of samples both inside and outside of the pixel in conjunction with samples from prior frames, to offer the highest quality filtering possible. Funcom's new MMO, The Secret World, was patched last week to add TXAA and we took the game out for a spin to see what it looks like.

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.
