Feature: A rad(eon) Ryzen PC

PC Specialist’s Inferno R4 is a fantastic 1440p gaming PC for just over a grand

AMD have knocked it out of the park with their RX 5700 graphics card and Ryzen 5 3600X CPU this year, and if I were looking to build a PC for just over £1000 in the next month or so, I'd probably be very tempted to put both of them inside it. After all, the RX 5700 is currently our best graphics card recommendation for…

Feature: The next evolution of the gaming laptop?

The good, the bad and the ugly of tomorrow’s dual-screen gaming laptops

When I first saw HP's Omen X 2S dual-screen gaming laptop a couple of months ago, I thought they were having a laugh. After all, what could you possibly do with such a tiny secondary display above the main keyboard when you're playing games? It screamed 'gimmick' at the time, but after visiting Intel's Open House event last week (in between getting enslaved by the…

Felix The Reaper review

Felix The Reaper is a master of distraction. Instead of making him rush to move shadows about so he can set up elaborately fatal traps, all I want to do is watch this chubby lil' reaper bust endless moves to the beat of his Walkman. and I mean moves: it would be ridiculous to call these "idle animations", because this groovin' dealer of death simply…

Nvidia are planning more ray traced remasters of classic PC games like Quake II RTX

Whatever your feelings are on Quake II RTX, it looks like it won't be the only classic PC game getting Nvidia's fancy pants ray tracing treatment. A recently posted job ad for Nvidia's Lightspeed Studios has revealed a new "game remastering program" that aims to bring "some of the greatest titles from the past decades [...] into the ray tracing age". There's no word yet…

Best PC gaming deals of the week – 11th October 2019

As we roll deeper and deeper into the month of October, it can sometimes feel like the deals gods are being right turds sometimes, what with Black Friday being just around the corner and all - a bit like those three ugly mugs up the top there, in fact. There they are, leering down at us with their stinking fire breath and tripping us up…

Feature: It is, as you say, glorious

Holey moley, Glorious’ Model O- mouse is an absolute beaut

At first glance, the Glorious Model O looks like it would be an absolute nightmare for PC gaming pet owners. With more holes in its ultra lightweight chassis than a block of Swiss cheese, I can already see myself trying to tweezer out clumps of cat hair from it that have somehow managed to waft in to one of its many honeycomb-shaped hollows. But when…

Red Dead 2 on PC has even lovelier horses for strapping alligators to

Shortly after revealing Red Dead Redemption 2's PC requirements last night, Rockstar went into more detail about the specific PC enhancements that will be yee-hawing their way into the game come November 5th. HDR, "faster frame rates" and support for 4K resolutions and beyond were arguably the biggest headlines from Rockstar's announcement post (still no word on ray tracing, sadly), but let's face it, all…

Red Dead 2’s PC requirements are gonna put a bullet in your SSD

Rockstar have quietly added the PC requirements for Red Dead Redemption 2 to the game's Rockstar Launcher page. The good news? It's not going to murder your PC. The bad news? It will absolutely gobble up your PC's storage banks, as it's currently recommending you keep at least 150GB set aside for it. I know it's a big game and all, but that's another 50GB…

Feature: 144Hz and AMD FreeSync for under £200 / $200

AOC’s C24G1 is the new successor to the best budget gaming monitor throne

For years, the AOC G2460PF has been sitting atop our [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"] list unchallenged and undefeated. With its sub-£200 / $200 price, 144Hz refresh rate and superb TN panel, it's by far one of the best screens around for those on a budget. The only problem is that it's getting on a bit now, and is becoming increasingly difficult to track down.…

Sennheiser’s GSP 370 looks set to become the wireless headset king with 100 hours of battery life

There's nothing worse than having your wireless gaming headset run out of juice mid-game, but the new Sennheiser GSP 370 should hopefully hold off the arrival of that sudden, deathly silence a bit longer thanks to its incredible-sounding 100+ hours of battery life. That's over 6x longer than Sennheiser's own GSP 670, which currently costs a whopping £300 / $350. Not bad for a £169…

Acer’s Thronos is an envoy from a hellish future where gaming chairs have enslaved humanity

I wish I was joking about the Acer Thronos, but this hulking all-in-one gaming-chair-come-war-machine absolutely terrifies me. I know gaming chairs are all the rage right now. Heck, you, reader, might even be sitting in one right now. But this is something else. It looks like a legit naval gun turret with a malign consciousness, and it fills me with terrible dread. Yes, its trio…

I find Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s recommended 32GB of RAM disturbing (Update: and now lowered)

EA published the minimum and recommended PC requirements for Respawn's upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order souls'em-up over on Origin earlier today, and for the most part it's all pretty plain sailing. All except the recommended RAM requirement, which comes in at a whopping 32GB. Is this some kind of Jedi mind trick? Update 09/10/19: Turns out, yes, it was a Jedi mind trick after…

Price cut incoming for Intel’s graphics-less Core KF CPUs

I've always been a bit baffled by Intel's Core F and KF processors. Not in theory, you understand. Making CPUs without integrated graphics makes a lot of sense for gaming PCs, especially when you're almost certainly going to be pairing it with a proper discrete graphics card anyway. Instead, it's the price of them that's been the most perplexing thing about them, as until now…

AMD’s Radeon RX 5500 takes aim at Nvidia’s GTX 1650

After the rip-roaring launch of AMD's Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT, AMD are now turning their eyes toward the 1080p end of the [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] pool with the imminent arrival of their brand-new RX 5500 card. Admittedly, I think we'll have to wait until the launch of the inevitable RX 5600 series before we have a proper GTX 1660 /…

Have You Played… Apocalipsis?

Apocalipsis, or Apocalipsis: Harry At The End Of The World to give it its full and proper name, is like walking through a series of medieval bestiary paintings. Poor old Harry sees all sorts of nasty sights on his Orphean descent into Hell to bring back his beloved, and the ones in that header image up there aren't even the half of it. Before he…

CoD, Crash and Spyro are November’s Humble Monthly early unlocks

Just when you thought your trusted deals herald was done for the day, here she is with another one fresh off the deals presses. It's arguably the best deal of the day, though, as Humble have just announced the early unlocks for their next Humble Monthly bundle: Call of Duty: WWII, the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy and Spyro Reignited Trilogy. That's seven games, all for…
