Take Over the World in Limited Style With the Civilization VI 25th Anniversary Edition

26 August 2016 - 10:52 AM

There are a little over two months to go before Sid Meier's Civilization VI arrives and we lose track of time. In addition to us getting Civilization VI this year, it's also the 25th anniversary of the franchise, which 2K is marking with a special edition of the game. The Civilization VI 25th Anniversary Edition celebrates Firaxis Games long running series with some exclusive goodies. You not only get the game, but all the bonus digital content included in the Digital Deluxe Edition, such as the soundtrack and four post-launch DLC packs. In addition to those, the 25th Anniversary Edition packs in a 100-page art book looking at Civilization over the years and a commemorative coin set with a display case, so you can proudly show off your love of Civilization. It also has the Aztec Civilization Pack, which is exclusive to all pre-orders for the first 90 days after launch, and then it'll be made available to everyone else. If you're a big fan of Civilization and want the ultimate experience with the sixth version of the game, it's hard to go wrong here (and just happen to want a ton of physical goodies to go with your game).

Sid Meier's Civilization VI arrives on October 21, exclusively for the PC, for $60. The 25th Anniversary Edition is priced at $90, with limited quantities available.

Hardware Roundup: Friday, August 26, 2016, Edition

26 August 2016 - 10:16 AM

The end of the week is here, with several items helping you welcome in the weekend. There is another look at the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Founders Edition video card, showing off what the budget-friendly model in the Pascal line has to offer. If you're after storage, we have two different options for you. There is a review on the Intel SSD DC P3520, a 2TB model bringing 3D NAND to a more affordable price point. The other storage option is for even more space, as the ASUSTOR AS6204T 4-bay NAS can handle a huge amount of space for its role as a home server, multimedia center, or anything else you might have in mind. In the mobile world, the HUAWEI Mate 8 smartphone gets reviewed to see how this phablet with its relatively unknown SoC performs. Wrapping things up is a new case mod that takes the Corsair Carbide Series 600C case and turns it into something even more stunning.

Hardware Roundup: Thursday, August 25, 2016, Edition

25 August 2016 - 10:06 AM

The week is drawing to a close, but we still have time to go, with a couple of reviews to help you out. There is a look at the ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 Turbo 6GB video card, a reference-style card (complete with blower-type cooler) that offers an affordable experience backed by ASUS' warranty and quality. If you're after a rather unique case, maybe the Thermaltake Core P3 case, with its build-it-yourself design and stunning looks, is for you. We wrap up with a podcast covering the latest news and reviews from the past week.

Hardware Roundup: Wednesday, August 24, 2016, Edition

24 August 2016 - 09:50 AM

The middle of the week is upon us, as are several items to get you through it. We have a look at the AMD's new Zen CPU architecture and what we can expect from the company's latest and greatest line. There is a review of the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Riing RGB 240 Liquid CPU Cooler, an all-in-one kit packing a 240mm radiator and even a smart fan controller to keep the included 120mm fans working as needed. If you're after a new control method for your computer, maybe the SteelSeries Rival 700 Gaming Mouse, with its first-of-a-kind tactile feedback system, is for you. Wrapping things up is a review of the HTC One X9, a mid-range phone in terms of hardware, but maybe not in terms of price.

A new day is here, with several items along the way for you to check out. We have a review on the Cooler Master MasterKeys Lite, an RGB mouse and keyboard combo that gets you what you need to start gaming for one low price. There's an article offering a new perspective on multi-GPU memory management, giving us a look at the differences between DirectX 11 and OpenGL, as well as DirectX 12, Vulkan, and Mantle. Ending things for today is a build log of a new small LAN rig, with both parts available to read.
