    in Microsoft Discussion on 15 March 2009

    Anybody try the Windows 7 Beta yet?

    in PC Discussion on 11 January 2009

    I'm running 7 atm and it absolutely beats the hell out of Vista.It's quicker, slicker, much MUCH tidier and lighter than Vista. UAC is far less intrusive and rarely appears. Gaming performance is much improved over Vista.Look up some benchmarks, loads of sites have been testing it only to reveal it's a much more efficient system than Vista. Many are reporting it to run better on lower spec...

    What can we expect of console graphic hardware performance in 2012?

    in Gaming Discussion on 07 January 2009

    I think that hardware wise - this generational leap has been much less of a significant one as opposed to say the 16 - 32/64 bit leap, or the 32/64 - 128 bit leap. As for whatever next gen brings, I reckon it'll be another pretty insignificant leap in terms of visuals, I think the focus is going to be more on actual performance than visual glamour.Right now the PS3 and the 360 simply cannot...

    720p or 1080p?

    in Gaming Discussion on 24 December 2008

    I have a 1080P TV but I have my 360 set at 720p, I have noticed a definite performance hit on some titles, it's a peace of mind thing too. Visually speaking there is minimal difference and to be perfectly honest I think with this generation at least, 1080P is a con, nothing more than a Business Word that sells. The 360 and PS3 just aren't powerful enough to handle truely detailed visuals at such...

    in Gaming Discussion on 01 December 2008

    Grainger Games don't really have the games wrap-sealed, don't think they ever have done. The new games always go in the same cases that are on display. Same thing with Rock Band 2 which I bought from there....

    Now, this is a rant at gamestores... not all gamestores but those particular gamestores to whom the following applies... As a gamer, I love the feeling, the look, the sheer... beauty... of a new game in my library, a new case standing proud amongst it's brethren; showing my love, my devotion and passion for videogaming. A good games collection is something to be proud of, and something that...

    World at War beta now available to everyone on Live

    Are there any plans to do the same with the PC version?I've recently upgraded to 4GB Ram and a 9800GT, knowing that CoD:WaW is gonna be a Windows Live title has me interested on trying it on the PC rather than the 360... I'm glad I did the same for Fallout 3, more excuses to do the same would be great heh...

    Does anyone know how good Guitar Hero 4 is??

    in Gaming Discussion on 27 October 2008

    Gnizmo said: What MrMarc said is wrong. Depending on the system there is incompatability between the various instruments. For example, no Rock Band 1 instruments will work with Guitar Her: World Tour. There is supposed to be a patch for the PS3 to remedy the solution, and there has been little to no word on what is going on with the Wii version. Rock Band 2 will be able to use the GH3...

    Does anyone know how good Guitar Hero 4 is??

    in Gaming Discussion on 26 October 2008

    The RB instruments are completely compatible with GH:WT, and the same will apply for RB2 and vice versa.Honestly, with the music creation and better instruments (I'm going off the reputation of RB1's here), GH4 only has to get a decent download system in place to completely thrash RB, but as far as the basics go, I would say it's already the superior game....

    Goldeneye 007... on the Source Engine (Half-Life 2, Left 4 Dead)!!

    in PC Discussion on 25 October 2008

    I was really unimpressed with the first and second releases of this. The problem is that although the mapping and modelling is superb (and I genuinely mean that), the game feels 'NOTHING' like Goldeneye did and for me that's a huge let down. As far as gameplay mechanics go, it feels just like HL2DM in a bond skin....

    is anyone else disappointed in Far cry 2?

    Well I've only played the game for an hour and to be honest I'm losing my will to give it a chance.Get told what to do.Drive there.Small, boring gunfight.Drive back.Get told what to do again.Rinse and repeat.I know being so early in the game it's unfair to really bash it off, but it can't be denied that first impressions of FC2 leaves an overwhelming feeling of... "Meh"   And the fact it's...

    360 Arcade games HAVE to run on a 14" TV - strict microsoft requirements

    in Microsoft Discussion on 15 October 2008

    Plenty of people will still play on fairly old CRT sets. Alot of kids with consoles certainly have to put up with portable TV's in their rooms. I'm alright in having a good quality PC monitor hooked to my 360 via VGA so I have my HD sorted!I wish this same encouragement happened for 360 games themselves, it's great to see that at least with XBLA, non-HD owners aren't being completely screwed...

    in PC Discussion on 14 October 2008

    It annoys me when people say 'those who complain about Vista have never used it' or 'those who complain have crap computers'.I've had Vista installed on this system of mine for a few weeks now on a 2 year old  system and I can openly and whole-heartedly say it's a horrible operating system. It just does so many things backwards, and to completely new PC users I don't see how it can be any...
