Bargain hunting is hot... RIGHT NOW

Like I said a few times on the boards lately, it's a superb time right now to play catch-up with last-gen (wow, it feels really weird to say that) games now that everybody's moving on to new hardware. Bargain Hunters, engage!

PC gaming isn't just not dying – it's growing!

Remember when the XBox and PlayStation 2 were fairly new, and a lot of pundits speculated that due to the power of the new consoles, PC gaming was on its way out? And remember how just a couple of years later, the PC was home to marquee titles including Rome: Total War, Half-Life 2, and Doom 3?

Most of the time, PC gamers try to strike a balance between visual fidelity and performance; raising one decreases the other. However, one of the easiest ways to get better picture quality out of your PC gaming without any sacrifice in performance is with "triple buffering." It's totally free, and the difference can be dramatic. Let me explain.

The Heroes season finale... coulda been better

So tonight was the final episode of the only show on TV that I've been fanatical about watching.  Although the series as a whole has been outstanding, and provided excellent entertainment week after week, I can't help but feel that the season finale wasn't as crisp and stunning as it could have been. 

It's good to be gaming

I'm a big hardware nut, so I spend a fair bit of time tweaking my PC. I just recently finished building a new rig, and it's been a much bigger task than I thought it would be – I'm now on my fourth motherboard! But now I've got my rig all optimized and overclocked, and I've finally been able to get into some serious gaming.

Fight Critic: Why MMA versus boxing is good for both sports

Nothing gets the public going like a good rivalry and MMA versus boxing has all the makings of a classic rivalry. This is old-school versus new-school; fathers versus sons; Red Sox versus Yankees; Gracies versus pro-wrestlers. Let's not forget the latter is what helped propel Pride FC and MMA to what it is today.

ATI's next-gen card is officially a bust

Hardware sites are buzzing with news of the release (finally!) of ATI/AMD's new HD2900XT card. It sports some pretty awesome technology, and even has a GPU with an insane 700 million transistors. It does pretty well in 3DMark06. But uh, how does it do in games?

The end of the Armored Core era

Like a faithful dog that's gone blind in one eye and can't walk, it's time to let go and let the series move on to that big game graveyard in the sky. 

Fight Critic: Should fighters apologize for boring fights?

If you consider MMA to be an athletic competition, then you have to accept that coaches, trainers, and fighters do not strategize and plan on how to "beat the crap out of someone" or "take his head off." They strategize on how to achieve victory and, unfortunately, those goals don't always include knocking someone out or even finishing the fight.
