XFX WarPAD Gaming Surface
     Thu, Jul 07 2011 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
XFX has been widely known in the past for their graphics card offerings. In front of us today we have the newly introduced XFX WarPAD gaming surface. This is not just a mousepad but a surface which the company claims will eliminate some of the issues hardcore gamers face during extended gaming sessions. This is a sign that XFX, like many other manufacturers, is moving into new territory.

Total War: Shogun 2 DirectX 11 Performance Testing
     Sun, Jul 03 2011 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A little more than a month ago we told you about the AMD Gaming Evolved Campaign as well as the new game title called Total War: Shogun 2. We took a look at the Shogun 2 and ran some benchmarks using DirctX 9. At the time of release Sega promised a soon to follow patch that would include DirectX 11 compatibility as well as a handful of other killer features. The patch has arrived and we have taken to the benchmarks again to see how the patch has helped or hurt the performance of Total War: Shogun 2. Read on to see what we found out.

Duke Nukem Forever Performance Test
     Sun, Jul 03 2011 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Duke Nukem franchise has deep roots in PC gaming history. The trash-talking action hero made his debut some two decades ago in 1991 on MS-DOS followed by a sequel in 1993. Three years later, Duke Nukem 3D took the industry by storm. Then as you know, Duke Nukem Forever took 14 years until it finally arrived. With a mixed bag of reviews and criticism from various angles, Duke Nukem Forever's long history of controversy will not rest for now. But as usual this performance review is less about DNF's gameplay and more about showing you how the game runs on a broad spectrum of today's (and yesterday's) PC hardware.

Steelseries Switch Gaming Keyboard
     Sun, Jul 03 2011 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Steelseries Shift almost gave us a headache (in a good way), simply because of the vast options and customizations available with it. The interchangeable keysets really put this board in a class of its own. Having the macros keep track of time delays between keystrokes is another great feature built into the software for the Shift. The software was very user friendly and easy to navigate. The ergonomic wrist pad and the three levels of height adjustment should make using it comfortable for hours.

Contemporary Graphics Cards in Duke Nukem Forever

A new game with the old name. Good old ingredients in a new recipe. Duke Nukem Forever make become another milestone in the development of the genre, or be yet another short-term entertainment. Time will show what its destiny is going to be, but we are really interested to find out how greatly the most anticipated game of the summer 2011 may determine your graphics sub-system upgrade options.

Cooler Master Storm Spawn Gaming Mouse
     Mon, Jun 27 2011 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I have had many mice over the years. I've used Logitech, Microsoft Sidewinders, and most recently the MadCatz R.A.T. 7. I have not had the privilege to use a Cooler Master mouse until now though. Cooler Master is relatively new to the gaming mouse market. Their first gaming mouse was the Storm Sentinel in 2009. The Sentinel was hailed as a “game changer” by many who reviewed it. Now, two years later Cooler Master has launched the Storm Spawn gaming mouse."

Duke Nukem Forever (PC) Review
     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let’s just address the pink elephant in the room. No one can think of Duke Nukem Forever without bringing up the extremely long development cycle. Yes, the game has had more than its fair share of drama, and has been in development for over 12 years. Due to the extremely long development time, gamers (and reviewers) believe that this game should be the most polished thing ever, with streamlined gameplay and unrivaled level design that should win awards for years to come. This is just unrealistic. We will be reviewing the PC version of Duke Nukem Forever, but we will not be judging it based on what we think we should see, but will base the review on the game’s own merits (or lack thereof).

Duke Nukem Forever @ Bjorn3D
     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 5:06A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On June 14, 2011 the long-anticipated Duke Nukem Forever finally hit the market, drawing the gaze of many gamers. Taking a quick glimpse at the new game and comparing it with the 14 year old Duke Nukem 3D, players will find the changes quite pleasant. Aside from the obvious changes in graphics, Duke Nukem Forever has been integrated with completely new gameplay dynamics seen in the latest shooters, such as Crysis 2 and Bulletstorm. The players are now not only limited to a direct confrontation with the enemy, but rather will have to utilize the surrounding environment to make it through various parts of the game. In addition, the users are provided with a larger set of options to choose from when playing Duke Nukem Forever. The game offers both a single player mode as well as multiplayer."

GT Omega Racing Simulator Review
     Wed, Jun 22 2011 | 4:34P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I think everyone reading this already has a passion for motorsports. We all have interesting stories about adventures on and off the track and dreams that most likely will never be fulfilled. I spent a large part of my childhood at dirt tracks in the Midwest; places like Kokomo Speedway and Eldora. The highlight each year, though, was the Indy 500. Now that I'm paying my own bills and have a family, I live about 20 minutes from the famed 2.5 mile track that captured my imagination as a child. Each year we have a gathering at my house to celebrate the event with family and friends. Last December we moved into a new house that offered us room to grow our family. The new place has a massive unfinished basement and offered me the opportunity to build the ultimate secret bunker office space, but after realizing I didn't need an office that was bigger than my first apartment, it was time to divide the area into two rooms. Of course, in order to effectively churn out some of the best SSD reviews on the web, I needed a large office to hold all of the test machines and supplemental hardware, but the space that was left over is slowly turning into a game theater room."

DiRT 3 Game Review
     Tue, Jun 21 2011 | 5:09P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The first thing which Codemasters are keen to put across is that DiRT 3 is a huge game, their biggest ever and it features double the track content of v2 with three times the rally-specific content. The best cars from the last 5 decades are included (think Group B Audi Quattro) and we start our career as a full-fledged action sports driver with a top-flight career. The aim, to increase our global standing."

The more data that the average home or power user collects, the greater the need is for some type of mass storage device to protect it all. The Thecus N32000XXX network attached storage server is very good at addressing this situation. With compatibility for Mac, Linux, and Windows, it makes sharing data and printers extremely easy. With its flexible configuration options and included backup software, it also makes a simple task out of backing up your valuable data.

Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings GPU & CPU Performance Review
     Fri, Jun 17 2011 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hot on the heels of Dragon Age II's somewhat disappointing March debut, CD Projekt Red has quenched the thirst of role-playing buffs with the sequel to its critically acclaimed RPG, The Witcher. Released on May 17, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was greeted with much fanfare, earning a score of 88/100 on Metacritic and a user score of 8.7/10. We had high hopes for The Witcher 2's graphical fidelity, though we were surprised and a bit disappointed to learn that it's strictly a DirectX 9 title. This has become somewhat of a trend for 2011's PC games, as you know Crysis 2 shipped solely with DirectX 9 support, though Crytek has promised to deliver DirectX 11 with a patch sometime this year. Unfortunately, CD Projekt also embraced another unsavory trend of late by shipping a bug-riddled product. Considering the initial performance issues, we decided to delay our performance review until some of the major kinks were ironed out. That time has come and we're happy to bring you our full performance test, complete with nearly two dozen video card configurations running The Witcher 2 with various quality settings in three popular resolutions.

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.
