    Warning: Lichdom Battlemage

    I don't know what happened here, but the combination of 1080p, Cryengine, black crush (on XBone), tearing, load times, etc is simply incredible. Lichdom Battlemage PS4/Xbox One: Worst Frame-Rate We've Ever Tested

    EDID tool and Crossover 27Q LED-P

    I have determined that my Crossover 27Q has had its EDID area scrambled somehow, it can no longer enter graphics modes (basically cause the computer to hang). Can't even enter my UEFI BIOS on account of that. So I'm wondering a) Anyone with experience in EDID recovery, are there tools out there...

    The Eye of Sauron Stirs: Microsoft on Steam

    Deadly Premonition coming to PC

    Boom. "Like the PS3 edition, which arrived in April three years after the game's Xbox 360 release, it has enhanced graphics, reworked controls, a few extra missions, and a few bits of DLC to buy--suits mostly. New to PC are Steam achievements and trading cards, plus a "bonus" piece of DLC. Go...

    Super Puzzle Platformer Deluxe

    I couldn't find a thread on this game, which is surprising because it's awesome. I never played the flash version, but the steam version is just.. umm... awesome. Perfect for half an hour here or there. Responsive menus, great music (available to sample and 'pay what you want' over at...

    My Hell -- Windows 8 EFI Boot Issue

    I installed Debian 7 on my machine, and that somehow upset the delicate sensibilities of my Windows 8 installation. I'm not sure how or why, but I want to fix it. What happens is that bootmgfw.efi kicks off and I get the black screen with a Window on. There it hangs. I assume bootmgfw is...

    Trials Evolution Gold

    Zynga layoffs

    A new graphical adventure from the creators of Gemini Rue. Low resolution and bad voice work aside, it seems to have a good story. GB:QL. One can buy it from wadjet eye for $10 and get a Steam key, but it's not searchable on steam yet (late july I think they said). I'm a bit miffed that...

    4870 artifacting / no fan control

    My Gigabyte ATI 4870 was showing pixel artifacts (intermittent flashing of green, magenta) during boot today, which I guess is either due to damaged memory or the cooling. I hear the fan boost for a second when booting (as is usual) but when I get into Windows I can't get the fan to react to any...

    New Monkey Island games from TellTale.

    TellTale are doing new Monkey Island games. Might be more up my alley even though the Sam'n'Maxes were okay. That and also Gilbert's notes from a recent playthrough of the original at Grumpy Gamer. (There's also the console remake of the original, but I dunno... feels a bit too much like...

    HP Pavilion HDX-16

    I bought myself one of these to have as a media "laptop" at home. Review /w pics here. There are certainly cheaper models that would get the job done, but what drew me to this one was HDMI, eSATA, come with 64bit Vista and supports 8GB of memory, bluray and the fact that it's based on Centrino 2...

    AMD driver papers over VRM issue?

    So, I was researching this Powercolor 4870 1GB PCS when I stumbled on this article which details how the card is completely unable to survive Furmark, even on stock frequencies. A Powercolor rep. called it a 'software compatibility issue'. Yeah, right. Let's see what happened a bit later...

    BF: Bad Company

    So I've tried the PS3 demo just now, and it looks good, but I don't think I can EVER get over how retarded it is to have to play with the controller when I have a perfectly good keyboard and mouse sitting right there. Yes, I tried it, both mouse and keyboard plugged in, did diddly-squat. I...
