iBUYPOWER Revolt Review

iBUYPOWER Revolt Review

Gaming PCs usually come in huge full-size towers, while some builders can cram a decent rig into a mid-size tower. However, iBUYPOWER has managed to stuff a top-of-the-line gaming machine into a SFF (small form factor) case, which isn’t completely unheard of, but very few people attempt such a feat. This new computer is called the Revolt, and it was announced earlier last month at CES 2013. The new computer is expected to start shipping sometime later this month, but we ended up getting some quality hands-on time with the new rig and ran it through its paces. Let’s see how it did.

Damage Inc: Pacific Squadron WWII Review

Damage Inc: Pacific Squadron WWII Review

World War II is something that we haven’t seen in too many games lately. It used to be that World War II was the focus of a lot of military shooters – the Call of Duty series was all World War II before Modern Warfare came along, and the Medal of Honor and Battlefield series did their part in making sure that there was never a lack of World War II games. Then, World War II as a setting for war games seemingly vanished, thanks in no small part to the fatigue players began feeling after a while.
