the best 2017 4K TVs for HDR gaming • Eurogamer.net

By David Bierton Published 20/08/2017 Choosing a 4K TV for gaming can be difficult, especially if you’re looking for an effective HDR presentation. Differences in peak brightness, colour gamut, and backlight dimming implementations all have a dramatic impact on picture quality, and finding the best display at different price-points is a minefield. Not only does picture quality need to be considered, but a low level of input lag is essential for a great gaming experience …

Logitech’s PowerPlay delivers no-compromise wireless gaming mice

The key to the system is its electromagnetic resonance charging technology, which sends power to the mouse without the need for any cords. The big, obvious benefit: You’ll never have to think about charging your mouse, be it by installing new batteries or plugging in a USB cable. Currently, PowerPlay works with Logitech’s G703 and G903 gaming mice, both of which feature the company’s new Lightspeed technology. Basically, that means they deliver an extremely low …

Sonic Mania review – Like a greatest hits album for one of gaming’s most enduring icons | Gaming | Entertainment

In the heady days of the early 90s, the console wars were all about Sonic v Mario, Sega v Nintendo – no one else had a look in. Sonic cartoons, Sonic merchandise, Sonic on TV – the spiky blue hedgehog was all the rage back then. A quartet of classic Mega Drive games cemented Sonic’s reputation, with his trademark fast and furious gameplay a hallmark of Sega consoles back then. But this all changed once …

Replay – Turok (2008) – Features

Original Source Link is Here This week on Replay, we take a look at Turok, though it might not be the one you remember. Most think of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter for the Nintendo 64 when they hear the name Turok. In 2008, however, developer Propaganda Games and publisher Touchstone Games (which is affiliated with Disney Interactive Studios, strangely) tried to reboot the series with a game clearly inspired Aliens that throws in some dinosaurs and …

Super Replay – Pokémon Snap Episode 3 – Features

Original Source Link is Here After the marathon that was Shenmue II, Andrew Reiner and I decided it was time to play something that didn’t require quite so much long-term commitment.

The Nintendo 64 favorite offered Pokémon fans their first look at their favorite creatures in 3D and, …

Tracking My Daughter’s Gaming Firsts – Features

Original Source Link is Here Pizza Hut. My obsession with video games began in a Pizza Hut located in a small backwoods city in Minnesota. I must have been four or five years old. We were there for dinner – my sister, father, mother, and another family of four we knew well. I don’t know if I was misbehaving, or if my mother picked me up to see the arcade machine, but before I knew …

Angry gamers may have been behind last year’s web-breaking DDoS attack

Last October, a flood of traffic from the Mirai botnet brought down major portions of the internet, blocking access to Amazon, Netflix, and other services for most of the northeastern US. It was a painful reminder of the fragility of the internet and the danger of insecure internet-of-things devices — but despite the broad scale of the damage, new research presented today at the Usenix conference suggests the attackers may have just been trying to …

TouchArcade iOS Gaming Roundup: Six Ages, Miracle Merchant, Dungeon Raid Eulogy, and More

We’re only a few days away from a major solar eclipse in the USA, and I suspect tons of people will be spending quite a bit of time this weekend either driving to the path of the eclipse on the 21st or waiting for it to actually happen on the day. Few things go better with sitting in a car (provided you’re not the one driving) or waiting in general than iOS gaming, so if …

Funny To A Point – All I Want To Do Is Play Diablo III – Features

Original Source Link is Here Believe it or not, we at Game Informer struggle with the same problem that all gamers do: finding time to play games as much as we’d like to. Everyone thinks that being a games journalist means sitting around and playing games all day (at least that’s what every forced small-talk conversation about my job has led me to believe), but in reality we spend 90 percent of our time writing …

The most brutal melee takedowns in PC gaming

Games are very good at satisfying fantasy violence and elaborate, gory executions are commonplace. These animations are partly there to shock and illicit that wincing “oof” when you watch your character dismember some unfortunate guard, but they are also there to make your moments of victory in a combat encounter stand out from the rest of the melee. A satisfying, decisive takedown is a release valve that gives you a moment to regroup before the …

NVIDIA’s Whisper Mode For GeForce-Powered Gaming Laptops Put To The Test

A new feature of NVIDIA’s latest GeForce technology for laptops that we weren’t able to fully evaluate until now, is something NVIDIA calls Whisper Mode. Like its recently introduced Max Q technology that paves the way for thinner and lighter gaming laptops such as the ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501, Whisper Mode is another type of mobile gaming optimization, except it focuses on noise output with the intrinsic benefit of lower power draw as well. Short and …

State Gaming Commission considers letting banks outside South Dakota accept deposits | Local News

PIERRE — Horse and dog racing might get a little more freedom in South Dakota. State government’s Commission on Gaming is considering a variety of rule changes. One would lift a restriction on what are known as multi-jurisdictional totalizer hubs. The hubs currently must deposit all money from account holders in a state-chartered or federal-chartered bank that must be in South Dakota. The commission might remove the “in South Dakota” part. That would allow hubs …
