Home • 110 RPS Hivemind 7th March 2011 / 2:36PM Last week Alec gifted us with his opinionations on Dawn of War II: Retribution, the latest standalone expansion for Relic’s Dawn of War II. When the game was released on Friday Kieron and Quinns, as ever, found themselves in the mood for some bombastic hyper-war. And lo, this very lunchtime the three men gathered and holstered their guns for the official RPS Verdict. Alec: Gentlethings, we are here to discuss Retribution, the second exandelion for Dawn of War II. It brings to the table six different campaigns and a new race, the Imperial Guard. Let us commence by noting how much of the game we’ve played. For my part, I have played two and a half of the campaigns, and something in the region of 10 multiplayer gmaesQuinns: I’m more of a rookie. I’ve bashed away at a few campaign missions but found myself distracted by full-on multiplayer matches against the AI. The game’s a toybox, and I … [Read more...] about RPS Verdict – Dawn of War II: Retribution

Home • PC Game Hardware • PC Game News • 24 Katharine Castle Hardware Editor 2nd December 2019 / 11:40AM If you missed out on one of last week’s Black Friday graphics card deals, never fear, because Cyber Monday is finally here to continue your graphics card deals hunting needs. Admittedly, most of the Cyber Monday graphics card deals I’ve seen are either the same as the ones we had on Black Friday, or are only a fraction cheaper. Similarly, it’s pretty slim pickings for anyone looking for a great Cyber Monday graphics card deal over in the US, as stock levels are incredibly low all round, or there simply aren’t any decent deals available on the card in question (that is, almost all GTX 16-series cards and most of Nvidia’s RTX range). There are plenty of Cyber Monday deals on AMD graphics cards, all told, but those hoping to bag a cheap Nvidia GPU deal may be disappointed. Still, regardless of what you’re looking … [Read more...] about Black Friday and Cyber Monday graphics card deals: All the best Nvidia and AMD GPUs still on sale
Home • Guides • Warframe • 1 Everything you need to know RPS Hivemind 8th May 2019 / 5:30PM Warframe is almost impressively obtuse; to the outside observer rather impenetrable. The free-to-play loot shooter has over five years of additions since its launch, layering system upon system upon system. All of which have an impressive amount of depth to them, but it is also almost aggressively uninterested in making sure newer players understand any of it. There’s Warframes to mod, guns and swords and crossbows to craft in the Foundry, Dojo rooms to build, Endo and Mutagen Samples and Argon Crystals and, well, a whole bunch of other stuff. Like, a lot of other stuff, so be ready to grind, a lot. To help you on your journey into one of the biggest free-to-play loot games out there, we’ve got a bunch of tips and tricks for making your Tenno the best Tenno that it can be.

Home • PC Game Hardware • 56 The GeForce is strong in this one Katharine Castle Hardware Editor 23rd January 2018 / 6:00PM Cloud gaming has become a bit of a dirty word these days. There have been plenty of people who have tried their hand at it over the years, promising high-end, lag-free gaming without the need for all that bulky, costly hardware, but most (*cough*Gaikai*cough*OnLive*cough*) have ended up on that age-old trash heap of crushed dreams and broken promises, their meagre uptake prompting them to disappear back into the ether almost as quickly as they appeared. This time, though, Nvidia might have finally cracked it, as the beta for their GeForce Now streaming service has finally arrived on PC in Europe and North America. It’s free, uses your very own game library and their respective cloud saves, and, whisper it, it’s actually pretty good. So rejoice all you laptop and creaking PC people whose rigs would probably faint at even the … [Read more...] about Nvidia’s GeForce Now PC beta is much better at cloud gaming than you think
Home • PC Game Hardware • And which one should you buy? Katharine Castle Hardware Editor 7th November 2019 / 3:50PM Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1660 Super is in a bit of an odd place right now. It’s a teensy bit faster than its non-Super sibling, the regular old GTX 1660, but not quite fast enough to really a proper impact on your minute-to-minute gaming performance. But given the GTX 1660 was already pretty close in speed to its more expensive cousin, the GTX 1660 Ti, is the GTX 1660 Super actually a way of getting Ti levels of power on the cheap? I’ve made some lovely bar graphs to find out. Nvidia GTX 1660 Super vs 1660 Ti: How we test Just like my GTX 1660 vs 1660 Super comparison piece, the main thing I want to find out here is how well each card runs at a variety of resolutions and graphics settings. Also like that particular test, I’ve only focused on 1920×1080 and 2560×1440 resolutions this time round, because, let’s … [Read more...] about Nvidia GTX 1660 Super vs 1660 Ti: Which is best?
