Obscure: The Aftermath (PSP) Review

Obscure: The Aftermath (PSP) Review

I don’t believe there are enough survival horror games.  Resident Evil rocked for a while, then they decided to focus on insane hillbillies instead of what they were good at… zombies.  The original Xbox hailed tons of awesome horror games, which made it my favorite console to play when it was popular.  Cold Fear, Doom […]

Valve Unpeels The Orange Box

Valve was at the World Cyber Games 07, and they were heavily pushing “The Orange Box” for both the PC and Xbox 360.  Not only did the Valve booth feature Half-Life 2 Episode 2 on huge 30-inch PC monitors, but they had several stations where people could experience Team Fortress 2′s multiplayer capabilities.  I had […]

Xbox 360 Wireless Reciever for Windows

Until recently, PC gaming could be a tiresome excercise of system configuration. PC gamers typically upgrade their systems to harness the most powerful graphics imaginable, but have to tweak and configure their systems to provide a smooth gameplay experience.

ATi Radeon X800 Pro

Although PCI-Express has hit the market it has not taken over AGP, at least in my opinion. Because of that there is still plenty of room for companies to fight for the best AGP card on the market. Nvidia and ATi are always racing to be the first on the market with the fastest and […]

A First Look At Half-Life 2: Deathmatch

Steam just released an update which included Half-Life 2: Deathmatch, Half-Life 2/Source SDK, and various tweaks and fixes.

Well Valve has made a very good decision doing this and should spark more interest in the game than […]
