    Are you gaming on Windows 7 RC?

    Been using Window 7 since the early beta versions and now running RC1. Honestly its about as good as Vista in terms of compatability, that is to say generally very good. The only thing that doesn't work so far is certain versions of punkbuster for various games, another reason to get rid of...

    EA GAMES:'Rapidly Becoming the Largest Gaming Platform in the World'

    Thats not a trait of the PC, thats a trait of so many developers making multiplatform games which are built for a generation of consoles which were behind the times graphically even on their release days (in comparison to top end PCs) When we get a port of FEAR2 for the PC we're getting a game...

    A new counter-strike?

    Like the Glock, hahaha, yeah right. Theres loads of tweaks for the source netcode, most of the lag compensation only feels unfair like you shoot someones head they dont die but you do, but the maths behind the code is goingback in time and correctly compensating for the difference in lag and...

    EA GAMES:'Rapidly Becoming the Largest Gaming Platform in the World'

    Its been no secret that digital distribution has been immensly popular, same with subscription based MMOs, it's just it's never counted against console sales in any type of polls. And then we get flooded with "the pc is dying" threads because console fanboys assume that less shelf space in...

    Ed Harris for Gordon Freeman, Bill Nighy for G-man, Jessica Biel as Alyx, Samuel L Jackson as Dr, Vance because he's in everything so logically must be in the half life film. Co-Staring ED-209 as Dog, haha!

    Anyone have 100% of their installed games (on any platform) on PC Steam?

    hehe I've recently had 50mbit fibre installed that pulls speeds of ~45Mbit or slightly over 5MB/sec, I've actually considered leaving my whole steam list (75 full games) downloading to see how long it takes xD 5MB/sec is 300Mb a minute and 18Gb per hour so I reckon about 4-5 hours for the lot...

    No New Game Consoles Until 2013, If Ever

    You can of course wire up your PC to a TV no problems, and also wire up console controllers to your PC, so as far as setup goes, it's all perfectly possible. Or you could spend as much on your PC setup as your home theatre like I did and shoot for a 30" screen which sports twice the...

    No New Game Consoles Until 2013, If Ever

    We wont see another console for a while, the reason is the investment required is massive and has a slow return, if you understand the console sales model you'll understand why. Consoles are designed and sold at a loss, a massive loss in fact, when the PS3 first came out bluray drives for the...

    Rumor mill: Apple takeover of EA!

    Could be a move to bring gamers to macs, theres no reason why a lot of games couldn't be written in opengl and then be easily portable between macs/linux and windows. I approve of keeping opengl alive as an alternative to directx, back in the day of games like UT99 you could run the game in...

    EA dumps SecuROM for Dragon Age: Origins; instead uses CD check

    Seems reasonable, they need to adopt this across all of their titles.
