F1 2011 (PC) Review @ Techgage
     Tue, Dec 27 2011 | 11:12P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The winner of the current F1 season is almost a sure-thing, but is Codemasters` latest F1 sim as well? With the introduction of DRS and KERS, improved driving physics, more realistic AI, a new collection of tracks, an improved focus on multi-player and the greatest racing challenge to date - it just might be."

SteelSeries Simraceway SRW-S1 Steering Wheel Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Mon, Dec 26 2011 | 4:09P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SteelSeries Simraceway SRW-S1 Steering Wheel Review @ HardwareHeaven.com This motion controller was co-designed by champion gamers and Indy 500 racers and is very much aimed at those who play Simraceway... but it also works with games such as F1 2011, Need For Speed, iRacing, GTR2 and DiRT 3. Today we take a look to see if SteelSeries can transfer their success with standard peripherals into the racing genre."

Dungeon Siege III Review @ Techgage
     Mon, Dec 19 2011 | 11:12P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With more killing, looting and Jayne Kassynder than you can wave a stick at, Dungeon Siege is back under new management. The world of Ehb is in turmoil and tyrannical control, and it`s your job to kill everything in sight to make it better. How has Obsidian Entertainment fared in its reboot of the venerable series?"

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Quick Review @ DragonSteelMods
     Mon, Dec 19 2011 | 9:38P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s the game that everyone`s talking about - Modern Warfare 3. And this time, the talk on launch day isn`t about shafted PC players, or scenes of unnecessary violence, or even Call of Duty`s domination as the biggest entertainment launch ever. All of those things still happened, in their now usual way, but they just aren`t the biggest issues any more. Instead, the game itself is taking centre stage. Many critics are conceding that though Modern Warfare 3 does little different than its predecessors, it is still one of the best games of the year, and utterly deserving of the success it gets. "

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Review: 3D Vision 2 Experience @ Hi Tech Legion
     Fri, Dec 16 2011 | 4:12P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Bethesda`s Skyrim is the fifth installment in the Elder Scrolls saga, set 200 years after the events of Oblivion. Skyrim is the northernmost province of Tamriel, the continent upon which all of the Elder Scroll games are set. In terms of new features, Skyrim uses the new Creation Engine which allows for dynamic weather changes including rain and snowfall and much improved lighting, shadows, animation, scripting and landscape compared to previous Bethesda games. Ever wanted to be a vampire or a werewolf? You can experience that in Skyrim. Maybe a career as a musician or having a virtual book collection is more up to your speed? These are also possible in Skyrim. In fact, there is very little you cannot do in this game. If that level of immersion wasn`t enough, try strapping on NVIDIA`s 3D Vision kit and see the real world melt away as you are transported to the ancient and harsh world of Skyrim."

World of Tanks NVIDIA 3D Vision Game Review @ Benchmark Reviews
     Wed, Dec 14 2011 | 1:22P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
World of Tanks (WoT) is a free-to-play MMO-action video game loosely based on World War II-era tanks from the Soviet Union, Germany, USA, China, Britain, France, and Japan. Players can open either a free or premium account, and earn their way up a tiered ladder by competing against other online players in random battles. World of Tanks is developed for the Microsoft Windows PC platform, and is designed to be played using a wide range of computer hardware: from portable laptops with integrated graphics to high-performance desktop computers with discrete graphics. For those simply wanting to grind their way to the top almost any graphics platform will do, but it takes a powerful video card to deliver immersive high-quality graphics and beautifully detailed scenery. For the enthusiast gamer who wants life-like realism, NVIDIA 3D Vision technology adds depth and out-of-screen effects that help take World of Tanks beyond its flat 2D battleground."

Star Wars: The Old Republic Preview (PC) @ HardwareHeaven.com Star Wars: The Old Republic, or SWTOR, is probably one of the most anticipated game releases of 2011 and certainly the most anticipated massively multiplayer online role playing game release in some years.

SteelSeries Simraceway S1 Racing Wheel @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 10:08A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the most part SteelSeries has stuck to a fairly nitch market. Their products are normally mice, keyboard, headsets, and mouse pads. There have been a few products here and there that have broken that mold like their work with Gunner Glasses and a few products that carried over from their purchase of Ideazon. Surprisingly they recently introduced a new steering wheel, the S1. They worked together with Simraceway to enter into the wheel market. I say wheel because unlike every other product on the market, the S1 is simply JUST a wheel. There isn?t a pedal, gear shifter (other than paddle?s), or even mount for the wheel. With just a USB cord and an F1 inspired wheel between you and the game it?s a different solution, but will it work?"

Hard Reset (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Fri, Dec 09 2011 | 2:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hard Reset (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Last month we previewed Hard Reset for the PC and found it to be a romping, stomping, carnage filled chaotic FPS with enjoyable gameplay and an engrossing environment. It combines all of the best bits of classic shoot `em` ups and sets it in a Blade Runner/Cyber Punk 2020 style universe. This coupled with between level cut scenes reminiscent of a Frank Miller comic made the game stylish and engaging throughout."

Antec rockus 3D 2.1 Review - XSReviews
     Mon, Nov 21 2011 | 6:35P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you`ve broken, lost or squashed the standard headset that comes with each Xbox 360, you don`t just have to buy another Microsoft-branded one. There are plenty of third party headsets of varying quality and some -- like the GameCom X10 -- can be found for less than the official version. Let`s see how it compares!"

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.
