Call of Juarez: The Cartel PC Performance Analysis

Call of Juarez was one of my most beloved games. Back in the days of DX9, the game featured spectacular visuals and incorporated some unique ideas. Moreover, it was a quality Wild West game, and we didn’t have one since… Outlaws. It basically filled a gap and became even prettier with a DX10 patch that Techland released afterwards.

The result was a sequel that was inferior to its prequel and a third part that has nothing to do with the series. It could easily be a new IP franchise instead of a Call of Juarez game, but I guess Techland needed the name to trick and sell the game to the fans of the series.

Dead Island Microstuttering Can Be Caused By Keyboard; Temporary Fix

So Techland has finally released the ‘real’ version of Dead Island on Steam but there are some of us that are experiencing some annoying microstuttering. Before jumping to early conclusions, this microstuttering takes effect whenever we are moving our characters so it has nothing to do with the graphics card or its drivers. The weird thing though is that this microstuttering is eliminated the moment we connect and try the game with a gamepad.

Dead Island PC Developer Build released on Steam instead of the Final version

Okay guys, this is a major screw up. Although PC gamers all over the world have been looking forward to the release of Dead Island, it looks like Techland and Deep Silver have made a major mistake with the game’s Steam version.
