Gaming History Source – Great Retro YouTube/Dailymotion Channel

Remember the games of your youth, whether on C64, Amiga, Mega Drive or Coin-op arcade memories, well the YouTube/Dailymotion channel Gaming History Source features back to back videos of gaming classics (and obscure memories) showing comparisons between all the versions at the time. Sure to end playground feuds from 1990 about whether the Amiga version is better than the rubbish Atari ST (guess what camp I was in). I’ve included a bunch of my favourites from the time below. If this has interested you in playing some retro games, then why not grab a brand new Wireless Megadrive with 60 games! It comes with two wireless 6 button Mega Drive pads, so no screwing over your friends with a...

PlayStation 3 Controllers Compared – Dual Shock 3 vs MLG vs Gioteck SC1

With a lot of people getting the bargain priced and game rich PS3 recently, myself included, I thought I’d look at what is the best controller for you if you have come from an XBox 360 or just wanted a change from the PlayStation 3 Dual Shock?  While you will eventually get used to a controller no matter what, its nice to feel comfortable and precise, especially in sports and FPS games. With this in mind I have three different controllers on test, which are very different in styles while (at present) coming in at around the same price.  We have the official Sony PlayStation Dual Shock 3 but with ORB Analogue Thumb Grips (£1.25 Amazon UK) to make the...

AMD A10-7850K Real Gaming Benchmarks Appear

I have added to the original article on the A10-7850K the videos below, but incase you didnt see that, here are a collection of real benchmarks from people with the A10-7850K in their system. All these videos are running the fast 2133MHz RAM which is required to get the most out of the GPU. Overall impressions are more favourable than first expected! Being able to run Battlefield 4 on ultra, even if only at 720p is very impressive for a £130 APU. Likewise Skyrim on high at 1080p running at over 40fps average is mighty. It really reinforces the fact that the A10-7850K is perfect for a budget gaming PC / Steambox. The quest for 1080p on ultra at...

PlayStation Plus February Is a Beauty For PS3 – Last Chance for free Borderlands 2!

If you own or have just ordered a PS3, and you are not subscribed to PlayStation Plus then get subscribed as soon as possible. You can do this via a 90 day PS Plus subscription (pay no more than £9) or a 365 day subscription (£30 is a good price). Why? Because you will get not only the new games for February, but also your subscription will overlap for the final days of January, which means you get the superb duo of Devil May Cry and Borderlands 2 (PS3). For February they are being replaced with the 94 Metacritic scored Bioshock Infinite and 80 scored Metro Last Light. Both are very good games, Metro Last Light is the kind of...

Nvidia Maxwell 750 GTX Ti Feburary Release – Rumor

While this is just a rumour, it has quiet a bit of backing. Since Nvidia have been very quiet for a while on the next generation “Maxwell” based Nvidia GTX graphics cards, today some websites are claiming a 18th of February launch for the new graphics card which will replace the GTX 650 TI and will run on a 28nm process. It should retail around the £130-160 mark, putting it in direct competition to the Radeon R9 270. The difference with the new Maxwell cards is they use unified virtual memory. The marketing blurb is “The goal of UVM is basically to use page faults in the virtual memory systems to detect when a piece of memory is being...

AMD A10-7850K and A10-7700K Kaveri APUs are here – HTPC / Small Factor Beasts – From £119.99

AMD have carved themselves a good niche with their APUs. Having the processor combined with a good onboard graphics card for low cost, has proved very successful in laptops, and ideal for HTPC and small form factor PCs. Not having to worry about a large graphics card in a tiny PC has a lot of advantages, nevermind the costs sometimes involved. With the new Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 having modified versions of these APUs in them, we know the potential power can be there, and the latest Kaveri APUs have had budget gamers excited with this prospect. What Systems are Kaveri AMD APUs for? What are the Options If you have a good mid range or above...
