Hardware Roundup: Wednesday, December 7, 2016, Edition

Yesterday, 06:42 AM

The middle of the week is upon us, with a few items to get you through it, regardless of what you're doing today. There is a review of the EVGA SuperNOVA 550W G3 power supply, featuring improved performance over the G2 line and silent fan operation until the power load increases beyond 50%. If you're after a new mouse, then the Razer DeathAdder Elite just might be the one for you, since it features a familiar shape and plenty of new hardware inside. We wrap things up with 20 of the worst PC setups seen during the month of November.

Tuesday is here, with a few items along the way for your viewing pleasure. We have a review of the Deepcool GamerStorm GENOME liquid cooled case, which features a fully integrated liquid cooling loop, so all you have to do is install the PC components and hook up the loop to enjoy increased cooling performance. There are also two different looks at the Cooler Master MasterCase Maker 5t case, one of the newest case entries from the company and the flagship model of the MasterCase lineup.

Hardware Roundup: Monday, December 5, 2016, Edition

05 December 2016 - 06:46 AM

A new week is here, with plenty of itesm to help start it off right. We have a review of the KFA2 GeForce GTX 1080 HOF 8GB video card, sporting a massive cooler that is sure to help out when things heat up during 4K gaming. If you're after some new audio needs, then perhaps the Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 Surround Sound Headset is for you. Or maybe it's the V-Moda Crossfade Wireless Headset, which can give you some audio bliss without the cord. For fans of racing games who want a new way to control your in-game vehicle, perhaps the review of the Thrustmaster TMX wheel, with its force feedback response and affordable price tag, will convince you to buy. We have a few other things for you to check out, too, such as a look back the Game Awards 2016, a wireless router from Linksys, and some of the best older phones you can still buy.

A New Galaxy of Adventure Awaits in the Gameplay Trailer for Mass Effect: Andromeda

02 December 2016 - 06:49 AM


Last night, as the Game Awards were winding down, we were all treated to some new gameplay footage of Mass Effect: Andromeda, the upcoming entry from BioWare. We saw a new cinematic trailer on N7 Day, but aside from a tiny bit of gameplay when the PS4 Pro was announced, we were missing some solid, actual gameplay. Well, fortunately BioWare delivered nearly five minutes of it last night, and if you happened to miss it last night, you're in luck. We get a little bit of everything in the gameplay footage, including some driving segments in the Nomad, combat against large beasts and more regular sized enemies, and even a bit of conversation between Ryder and a warlord. Plus the new HUD is on display throughout the footage. There's plenty more to check out, so start watching it below and try not to drool.

Everything shown in the trailer has got me ready to go for Mass Effect: Andromeda. The combat looks fluid, especially when you combine the jetpack with biotic abilities, or swapping to the disruptor ammo to take out some mechs, or trying to not get overrun by some of the new beasts you'll encounter on the different worlds. We also get a look at some more of the squadmates, like a Krogan and a female Turian, and in one combat section we see what appears to be a new alien race that's different from the Kett shown during N7 Day. There's going to be so much waiting us in Andromeda, and it's a journey I cannot wait to go on.

Mass Effect: Andromeda arrives in the spring for the PC, PlayStation 4, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One. No solid release date just yet, but hopefully that's coming before long.

The week has drawn to a close, with a couple of items ending the week off for us. There is a look at the AUKEY KM-G3 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, a fairly affordable model that just might hit all the right notes after nailing the price point. Our other item for the day is a podcast covering the latest news and reviews from the past week.
