Hardware Roundup: Friday, October 21, 2016, Edition

Yesterday, 10:31 AM

The end of the week is here, with a few items for you to check out before the weekend of gaming commences. We have a review on the Acer Predator Z850 UltraWide 24:9 Gaming Projector, offering a massive screen shown on your wall, as long as you don't mind throwing down a large chunk of cash to get it done. If you just need more storage, the QNAP TS-451+ NAS, which has four bays and a fast quad-core CPU, might just be the solution to share all sorts of files across your network. Wrapping things up is a new case mod that's simply called Big Red, where it takes the Phanteks Enthoo Primo SE and fits it with a massive amount of hardware and a blood red liquid cooling system.

Red Dead Redemption 2

20 October 2016 - 10:54 AM

Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming around this time next year, so far on just the PS4 and XBO. It's the third game in the Red Dead series, this time bringing us to America's Heartland, likely around the start of the 20th century. I figured 1880s or 1890s, but we'll have to see for sure. The game looks awesome right now, even if it's just on PS4 and XBO, with no PC version in sight. We better get a PC version instead of it missing it entirely.


We're in charge of a posse or a gang for sure, but who are we controlling? No idea yet. Rockstar is slowly teasing us, but hopefully we don't know everything before next fall.

The Old West beckons to us once more, with Rockstar Games delivering its vision to us in the form of Red Dead Redemption 2. Yes, we're finally heading back to the American West in the days of cowboys and lawlessness, with an absolutely stunning take on the time. It was just a couple days ago when Rockstar announced we'd be getting a Red Dead Redemption 2, the long awaited sequel to the second game in the Red Dead series, and while it eschews the naming conventions of the past two games, it still should deliver on what the series is known for. Today was the day we'd getting our first look at RDR 2, and Rockstar delivered on that. The game itself, even if it's a year out, looks positively gorgeous, with stunning vistas, snowcapped mountains, rolling plains, and more. You should just see for yourself below.

What's interesting is that we look to be in the heartland during the turn of the century, with oil rigs, buffalo, and vast grasslands showcased. This would seem to fit more in line with Wyoming or Montana than somewhere further south, like we got in Red Dead Redemption. It looks like the sequel is closer to Canada than Mexico, which is good to give us a different experience. It all still looks stunning, from the landscapes to the people, towns, and animals, both wild and domestic. We also get a brief look at a posse heading out, more than likely our own posse, but I'm afraid the makeup of it and who exactly we're controlling is a mystery.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is slated to arrive in Fall 2017 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. No PC version is announced at this time, but hopefully we actually get RDR 2 on PC at some point instead of waiting forever for the Red Dead Redemption 1.

Hardware Roundup: Thursday, October 20, 2016, Edition

20 October 2016 - 09:47 AM

The week is starting to wind down, but not before we have a few items for you to check out. There is a review on the Rosewill Cullinan case, a tempered glass model that looks quite stunning in its appearance. If you're after a new computer mouse, then maybe the SteelSeries Rival 500 gaming mouse, with its 16000DPI optical sensor and RGB lighting, is for you. Or maybe you want something different, such as the Tt eSPORTS Ventus R gaming mouse, which has a 5000DPI sensor and an ambidextrous design.

Hardware Roundup: Wednesday, October 19, 2016, Edition

19 October 2016 - 10:40 AM

The middle of the week is upon us, with some items for you to check out. We have a review on the MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 3GB, a slightly reduced version of the GTX 1060 that is still fairly powerful in its own right. If you're after a new means of control for your PC, then maybe the Corsair M65 PRO RGB Gaming Mouse and MM800 RGB Polaris Mouse Pad will get the job done for you. We have a look at the recent HWBOT TeamCUP 2016, as well as some of the biggest rivalries in computing history to close things out.
