Alice: Madness Returns appeared on Steam

We all remember the fuzz about Crysis 2’s disappearance from Steam. Although we thought that EA would try to take full advantage of their latest distribution service, Origin, it appears that they don’t want to miss out the extra revenue that can be generated by Steam. As a result of that, Alice: Madness Returns is now also available on Valve’s distribution service. Continue reading Alice: Madness Returns appeared on Steam

Dungeon Siege III SLI Workaround

As we’ve informed you at our Performance Analysis of Dungeon Siege III, Obsidian’s game had various SLI issues.

Duke Nukem Forever PC Review

I was really wondering how to begin writing this Review. Should I say that Duke Nukem Forever is finally here with us? “No shit dude, we can already see it” would be the answer from most of you. Should I say that I was not impressed with the low scores from all other gaming sites? It’s too obvious. Should I say that we won’t have our classic April’s Fool joke from this moment on? Hmmm, perhaps I should invent another one, like Duke Nukem Forever & Ever. Or should I say that it was not worth the wait? Nyaaaaah. After all, you can see its score so you should already know the answer. Perhaps I should borrow the lyrics of a Greek song: ‘What? Tell me what? I don’t know what to tell you. It was the end of an era!’ Continue reading Duke Nukem Forever PC Review

Alice: Madness Returns – 30FPS Cap Removal

If there’s one thing we hate, it is witnessing a game capped at 30fps. Some companies removed that cap via a patch, like Codies did for Overlord, while others simple didn’t give a damn about PC gamers’ opinions and suggestions. Thankfully, the community has managed most of the times to find workarounds, as some modders have managed to remove the cap from both Transformers: War For Cybetron and The Force Unleashed 1 & 2. Continue reading Alice: Madness Returns – 30FPS Cap Removal
