Windows 10 Review for Dummies
By Ivory_Soul
Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Updating my rig part one: Case & Motherboard
Posted on Saturday, April 28 2007 @ 01:17:21 PST

Not many of you will know this, but I've been having increasing difficulty using my Hell Dell as of late. My brother, the one who is servicing the thing, has decided that it is, in fact, a lost cause. The motherboard had to be replaced, the graphics card nearly needs replacing, the modem's stuffed and the DVD/CD-RW no longer reads DVDs.

Being the ever-so-conscious one he is, he's sending the parts here one at a time, with him installing them once he gets a chance. I'd do it, but he's the one with the A+ international certification in computer maintenance and operation.

He announced that he'd be making it a couple of hours ago, and now he's sent over two parts, the case and the motherboard.

Step One: The Case
Well, I don't know what type of case it is, but it sure is funky looking. The box isn't much help, as all it says is "Case" on the side, with a strange corporate logo. The case itself has a DVD drive and CD drive, 2 front mounted USB ports, and I don't really know how else to describe it.

Step Two: The Motherboard
I didn't actually see the motherboard, as he installed it into the case before he sent it here. Well, at least I hope so: the motherboard box contained an instruction manual, an orange cord, a CD of drivers, an AMD sticker, some installation instructions and nothing else. According to the front of the user's manual, it's a S series GA-M61VME-S2 motherboard with Dual-Ch DDR2 800, SATA 36b/s, 10/100 LAN and RoHS compliant.

Don't ask me what the heck that means, I have less of an idea than you do.

If anyone can tell me if it's a good card or not, that'd be great!

So, what's the deal?
Posted on Tuesday, April 24 2007 @ 07:14:23 PST

I've noticed less and less people are reading my reviews. Before I was getting like 400+ reads of a single game review, but now that I've developed my writing style, I'm lucky to see 200+ reads, with some reviews not even getting 100. What is the problem?

Could it be that my reviews are just too long for some of you to stand? Or is it that I'm not reviewing any games y'all are interested in? I just don't get it.

I've also noticed a lack of people rating my reviews. Some of my GR comrades are getting all of their reviews rated, while only a handfull of mine are. This may be due to the fact hardly anyone's reading them, but it's still puzzling me.

Oh, and I'll have that review of Deus Ex up later. I am yet to gauge how good the game is. As it stands, it's about Grade A material. To be honest, I believe that anyone who reviews Deus Ex validly with giving it anything below a B is criminally insane, a moron, oblivious to the greatness that is Deus Ex or Lawyer-man-whose-name-shalt-not-be-typed (who is all of the above).

I wanted orange! It gave me lemon-lime
Posted on Friday, April 20 2007 @ 04:17:37 PST

For those of you that don't get the reference, I recently bought a copy of Deus Ex: GOTY Edition. In my personal opinion, Deus Ex is one of the legends of the gaming industry. Creating a perfect blend of FPS shooting action, RPG character customisation, space-limited inventory system ala Resident Evil 4, multiple routes towards every objective, and ingame choices affecting later events, the game is truly a masterpiece.

The funny thing is, I've played it before. I rented it once for PS2, and yet I was still shocked when I learnt it used the Unreal engine. I've had bad experiences with games made using licensed engines before (Pariah), but it's done tastefully well in Deus Ex. Expect a review sometime in the future.

You won't believe what I found
Posted on Thursday, March 1 2007 @ 23:10:15 PST

So I was in town the other day returning Resident Evil 4 to United Video, and I thought I'd stop in the mall and browse. While I was in there, I looked in The Warehouse, and I found one of the best games of all time hidden in the software section ...   read more...

I now hold quite possibly the greatest RPG ever made. It's taken me years to track down a copy of this bad boy, and now all that hard, half-assed work has finally paid off. I now own a copy of Wild Arms. The first in the series, a PSone gem. Expect a...   read more...

Don't believe the hype
Posted on Thursday, October 26 2006 @ 04:46:58 PST

You know, I've played a lot of games in my time. From 'in the limelight' games like GTA:SA and UT2004, to silent hits like X2 - The Threat and Red Faction, and I have to say that sometimes, the game no-one's ever heard of can be just as good, if not ...   read more...
