New “Fable” game free-to-play on Xbox One and PC

New “Fable” game free-to-play on Xbox One and PC

Don't worry - it's not "free-to-play" the same way Killer Instinct was (and is) free-to-play. It's not a situation where you'll gain nothing without purchase. In this release of the game Fable Legends, creators at Lionhead have suggested that you'll be able to have free access to the entire game. This is one of three "commitments" the gaming studio says this week they're making to gamers of the near future. While you will need an Xbox Live Gold subscription to play the game on Xbox One online, you won't need anything of the sort on Windows PC.

Stardock Start10 gives back the nostalgic Start menu on Windows 10

Stardock Start10 gives back the nostalgic Start menu on Windows 10

Since Windows 8, the newer Microsoft OS's have been designed with touchscreen capabilities in mind. This led to the diminished functionality of the classically recognizable Start menu. Earlier versions of Windows 8 didn't use a start menu, that bottom-left based pop-up menu that Windows users had grown accustomed to over the years. Stardock is a company that released their own start menu, Start8, to fill the lacuna in Windows features. Windows 10 is now on the horizon, and Stardock is following suit in announcing their completed development of Start10, their newest Start menu.

Lenovo Superfish adware disabled since January

Lenovo Superfish adware disabled since January

This morning there've been some fairly harsh reactions to some so-called "Superfish" software included in Lenovo notebooks. Lenovo has released a statement on the subject, making it clear that this software was only included on "some consumer notebooks" sold between October and December of the year 2014. Due to the less-than-positive impact the software had when it was first discovered by consumers, it was completely disabled since January of 2015 on the server side. What exactly does that mean for you, the Lenovo notebook owner?

Star Wars Humble Bundle summons the Dark Forces

Star Wars Humble Bundle summons the Dark Forces

Today Humble Bundle brings heat with a number of Star Wars-themed games for PC, Linux, and Mac. The team behind Humble Bundle have successfully high-fived the folks who own the rights to these games - previously called LucasArts - and are pushing cash to charity. Users are asked to pay $1 or more - hopefully a lot more - to gain access to a number of rad games from Star Wars history. And what's that - at least one super classic title - Dark Forces, the original 3rd-party Dash Rendar-like character first person shooter back from the dead.

Raspberry Pi 2: the $35 PC gets a big boost

Raspberry Pi 2: the $35 PC gets a big boost

This week we're seeing the next generation in Raspberry Pi technology. For those of you that've never heard of the Raspberry Pi, it's a barebones computer that's made to be exceedingly cheap whilst retaining functionality for do-it-yourself electronics makers. In other words - it's the brain for your next robot. This second major wave release is being put out for the same price as the most recent Raspberry Pi unit, but here you're getting a 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU with 6x the performance of the previous best board.

ASUS VivoMini PC with Celeron now available from Newegg

ASUS VivoMini PC with Celeron now available from Newegg

It's been a few months since ASUS revealed its vision for a small PC box in the VivoMini, but now it is starting to turn that vision into reality, albeit in a less impressive and slightly disappointing way. The VivoMini PC that is now for sale on Newegg does indeed bear a 4th generation Intel Haswell chip, but only of the Celeron kind. It also comes with a price tag that, though not significantly much, is just a bit higher than the $150 mark ASUS was aiming for.

This morning Visceral Games announced that the next release of Battlefield Hardline will be in the form of a new Beta.

There won't be any cross-play action between PC and game consoles, but there may be cross-pollination between console generations.

Intel NUC gets its first Core i7 model

Intel NUC gets its first Core i7 model

Mini, and even pico, PCs are not uncommon, but few will probably be aware that Intel has its own special line dedicated to that computing size. The Intel NUC, short for Next Unit of Computing, is the chip maker's own take on how mini PCs should be built, putting the whole computer in a single package rather than as separate components like most desktops. That NUC line is now getting a huge upgrade with the addition of a Core i7 configuration in the roster.

Saints Row: Gat out of Hell Review

Saints Row: Gat out of Hell Review

If you're a fan of the Saints Row game series, Gat out of Hell is going to feel a lot like coming home. If you've just played Saints Row IV this past weekend - while it was free on Steam - you're going to feel like you're playing the next chapter in the same game. That's what Gat out of Hell is, after all - not a brand new title, but the second part of a saga started back when Earth was invaded by Zinyak in the year 2013. Now it's time to turn those computer-generated superpowers in on themselves and head down to Satan's pits, a place where instead of digital nonsense, you'll be working with good ol' analog killing goodness: blood, lava, and heavenly (or hellbound) magic.

EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 SuperSC Review with Benchmarks

This week NVIDIA brings heat with the GTX 960 graphics card family. The unit we're having a peek at today is an EVGA GeForce GTX 960 SuperSC, working with clock speeds of 1279MHz Base and 1342MHz Boost, a brand new set of cooling features with ACX 2.0+ Cooling, and the ability to output video to 5 displays at once. This isn't a top tier card, it's meant to attack the middle - extraordinary processing power for a rather inexpensive price. That's the key to hitting the graphics card market from all angles.
