Choose the Best Gaming PC for your Needs

Posted on November 7, 2018 in Uncategorized

Computer game technology is a rapidly-increasing field. In terms of both hardware and software, companies are constantly striving to push the envelope and increase performance. As the intricacy of individual games increases, however, it becomes important to select a computer gaming system that will best fit your particular needs. Unfortunately, there is no shortage of gaming PCs available on the market. How, then, do you select the best gaming system? By answering several questions about your gaming and financial needs, you can determine which direction to turn in terms of a proper gaming system.

What Kinds of Games do you Play?

The specific types of games that you tend to play will help decide which hardware configurations will best meet your needs. All games are not created equal, and depending on the genre developers will devote more of their energy to different aspects of the title. Strategy and simulation games, for example, tend to be less graphically-intensive than other types of games and thus can be run on a less powerful gaming system. As a point of reference, the specifications for Civilization IV, a lush and detailed strategy game, are as follows:

-1.8GHz Intel or AMD processor

-512MB RAM

-128MB video card

Compared to many of the newer gaming computers on the market today, the demands for running Civilization IV are not all that high. As with many strategy and simulation games, a greater weight is placed on AI and game calculations rather than graphics, and raw hardware power becomes less important to run the title effectively.

Conversely, first-person shooters (FPS) and action titles tend to rely more heavily on graphics and physics to create the proper ambiance and environment. As such, the system requirements for these types of games are usually significantly higher than other genres. Titles like Half-Life 2 and Quake 4 bombard the player with graphically intensive scenes, and the physics of the game are precisely calculated to create the most realistic scenarios possible. In contrast to the specifications listed above, the recommended system configuration for F.E.A.R., one of the more advanced FPS titles in terms of graphics prowess, are as follows:

-3.0 Pentium 4 or equivalent processor

-1GB RAM

-256MB video card

Although F.E.A.R. and Civilization IV released at roughly the same time last year, the recommended system requirements for the former are nearly double those of the latter. This is often the case with FPS titles; because developers largely intend these games to be “showcase” pieces of a particular technology or graphics engine, a more powerful gaming computer is usually required to run them in their full graphical glory. The graphic rendering takes enough resources, but when you figure in the requirements for precise real-time physics calculations, these get bumped up even further. As you can see, the types of computer games that you play invariably affect the hardware that you should purchase.

Must you have the Best Graphics?

Genre alone is not the sole deciding factor in determining which gaming PC to purchase, however. Many titles, including such showcase pieces as Half-Life 2 and Doom 3, provide the player with the option of scaling back the graphical effects in order to run the game smoothly on a less-powerful system. While FPS and other games often require a behemoth of a system in order to run with all graphical effects turned on, they will generally run adequately on older rigs. If you can live without such taxing effects as particle shading and frame rates in the hundreds, chances are that you can spend less on a gaming computer and still be able to play the latest games.

What’s more, in many cases game developers and players will discover ways to make a game run more smoothly and stably shortly after it releases. It is generally expected that, in the rush to hit the marketplace, many games are not truly “finished”; that is to say, the code behind them could stand to be optimized slightly more. Therefore, developers and publishers will usually releases patches or updates in order to fix certain technical problems. In the case of F.E.A.R., many players reported shortly after its release that the frame rate would often drop down to unplayable levels mid-game, chugging along even on powerful gaming systems. Once the game was patched, however, this shortcoming was largely rectified. Similarly, avid players or members of a gaming community will often find ways to improve a game’s performance on their own through hacks or tweaks. When this happens, their findings are usually released online in short order, and a game that might have taxed your gaming computer beyond its capabilities may suddenly become playable. Again, it’s not always necessary to have the absolute best hardware in order to play the latest games.

How Much do you Plan on Spending?

Naturally, all of this technology comes at a price. As the adage goes, you have to pay in order to play. Everybody aspires to one day own an ultimate gaming computer; the specifications are mind-boggling, and there is no shortage of companies offering monster gaming rigs. However, the cost of owning one of these machines is often prohibitive. Keep in mind that the newest and most powerful video cards tend to hit the market at the $500 price point. Additionally, the most powerful processors can be priced at $1000 or more. When you design a system around these top-level components–a system that can take the latest game releases, chew them up, and spit them out–you can expect the cost of it to soar. It’s not unheard of to see dedicated gaming PCs priced at $4000 or more for the tower only.

Obviously, the first two questions influence the third quite a bit. If you don’t play many graphically-intensive games, or if you are willing to live with slightly degraded in-game graphics, it is simply not necessary to spend that kind of money on a gaming system. There are plenty of computer companies that have in their lineups midrange setups that are perfectly capable of playing the majority of games on the market today–and at a significantly reduced price. Don’t despair if you can’t afford the latest and most powerful computer technology; while economic means may be the most influential of all deciding factors, it won’t necessarily prohibit you from playing the games that you want.

Vindictus Game Review

Posted on October 31, 2018 in Uncategorized

Vindictus is a prequel to another highly popular MMORPG game called Mabinogi. The game takes place in the same setting as that in Mabinogi but the events takes place several hundreds of years before Mabinogi. Vindictus is also a game that was released after Mabinogi and is also free-to-play and available online.

The game offers you four playable characters for you to choose from. A fifth main character will be added at a later date. The four main characters have different skills when it comes to combat. Their names are Lann, Fiona, Evie and Karok. Much like many other MMORPG games, each of them specialize in different weapons. The two female characters are good at using magic while Karok is a large man who uses a pillar for combat. Lann is a pro at with spears and swords and is equipped with full heavy armor.

A new character called Kai will be introduced to the game very shortly. He’s another male character and is an archer. It’s great that an archer will be included in the game soon but it would have been fun if he was in the game from the start. Nevertheless, I’m sure he will add a new dynamic to the combat system in Vindictus.

Speaking of the combat system, at the start of the game there’s an optional prologue mission that serves as the game’s tutorial. It is here that you will have to familiarize yourself with Vindictus’ combat as you will have to fight a giant spider. From there, you will realize that newer MMORPG games are taking the genre into a whole new level. Combat in older MMORPG games have always been simplistic at best. You would just point and click with the mouse and your character would just hack away with one standard attack. With the likes newer MMORPG games like Vindictus and Dragon Nest, you can move using the keyboard and dish out combos more akin to hack-n-slash games such as the famous Dynasty Warriors games.

In terms of graphics, the game is stunning. It’s rendered in 3D and everything from the character models and the lighting effects look highly realistic. As with Dragon Nest, the game was released recently so be sure to check your computer’s specifications first before you try and download the game. Although it’s free-to-play the last thing you want to happen is for you to wait for the game to download only to find out that it doesn’t work. Even though the specifications for the game say you need 1GB RAM to run it, it’s advisable you have 1GB or more for it to run more smoothly.

In terms of quests, it starts off like most other MMO RPG games. You will have to complete the first (and easy) tasks all on your own until you can venture off and meet other players and even join a party. It’s advisable that you meet some friends later on in the game to tackle the harder quests co-operatively. Although you can complete quests by yourself in Vindictus, your job will be much easier if you are in a group. Especially when your enemies get harder and grow larger in numbers…

Most free-to-play MMORPG games lack high production values but this isn’t the case with Vindictus. The graphics are stunning and the gameplay is smooth and slick throughout. IGN even rewarded Vindictus as the best free-to-play MMO RPG title in 2010. I’m sure many gamers who have played the game cannot argue with that statement.

RF Online Game Review

Posted on October 25, 2018 in Uncategorized

RF Online is one of the most awesome and exciting MMORPGs that I have ever played. RF or Rising Force Online is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) developed by South Korea for Windows-based PCs, which is a combination of classic science fiction and fantasy. The story of the game revolves around the distant world of Novus. It centers on the gripping three-way conflict among three races namely the Bellato Federation, Accrecia and Cora in a beautifully rendered 3D environment.

About The Characters

The Bellato race are dwarf-sized but has the ability to wield magic, swords, staves, guns, bows and technologically advanced weapons like the MAU or Massive Armor Unit. What I loved about the Bellato is their ability to ride the MAU. A MAU is a huge robot that can only be piloted by a Bellato. There are two kinds of MAUs available in the game. One is Goliath, which is a MAU that specializes in melee attacks. The other is Catapult, which has a long range attack capability. A MAU has a high maintenance because it cannot be healed and its life can only be recharged in a Bellato NPC shop at an expensive price. However, they can destroy other races with just a few attacks and they are effective tanks in battle.

On the other hand, the Cora are elf-like creatures who possess strong affinity with nature. Although they can wield staves, swords, guns and bows, they are more effective using magic. They also have the ability to summon an Animus to aid them in battle. I am not much of a fan of a magic wielding character but a powerful Cora mage with a summoned Animus can destroy a MAU provided with the right strategy.

The third are the Accretia, who are technologically advanced race who replaced their whole body with cybernetic parts. They are able to hold swords, bows, guns and launchers. Although they don’t have the ability to ride the MAU like the Bellato or summon an Animus like the Cora, the Accretian gunners are forces to be reckoned with. Accretian gunners with powerful launchers can take on other players with just one or two hits and they can take out a MAU from a distance.

Features

Leveling is achieved by killing monsters and skills are developed by using certain kinds of weapons or attacks. Equipping special armors or weapons also improve the status of a character.

There are plenty of jobs available for each character depending on their race. The different jobs offer various skills that are unique to each other like invisibility, special melee attacks, special long range attacks, ability to ride the MAU or summon an Animus.

Another distinct feature of this game is the election of an archon every week and council members who will be responsible in protecting the race. Each player elected is granted special abilities that range from increase in status points to increase in attack or defense.

In addition, each race has their respective currencies that can only be used in each race’s NPC. This somehow limits greatly the progress of other players who keep on switching races since they have to start over again if they do.

Every certain time of the day, all races gather in a map to participate in the Chip Wars led by each race’s archon. The result of the war determines which race has the right to mine for resources that can be used to manufacture special items and equipments. It determines the race who will have control over the Holystone Keeper too, which is the guardian of the mines. The race who wins the war also receives race buffs, increasing the race’s attack and defense, which gives it supremacy for a certain period. The loser gets a debuff or lowering of status and will not be able to operate in the mines.

Opposing races can attack each other any time. However, players of the same race can’t attack each other unless they take a Chaos Potion or they are in a Guild Scramble, which is a guild vs. guild match.

Review

I find this game addicting and fun because of the full customization available for each character and the unpredictability of battles brought about by its player kill or PK system. The PK system keeps you awake even if you are just leveling on regular monsters because any race can just invade your field and attack you. The only safe place to stay is at the base of each race where invaders can’t attack you. The leveling system and character status customization are unique. The politics involved in the election of an archon or council is also a good point in the game as it adds a bit of realism to its world. On top of that, the Chip Wars are breathtaking! Going into a Chip War is like going into a world war wherein only the strong survives. Although the availability of a nuclear arsenal turns the tide in a blink of an eye during the war, it is still great and adrenaline pumping because you just never know what to expect. The music is superb as well.

Unfortunately, the game suffered a downside in its economy due to players who used item duplicators. Also, the use of fly hack tools boosted the leveling of many characters. Basically, a fly hack program enables a player to maximize his experience by attacking a monster from above without the monster damaging him due to their distance and the inability of the monster to reach a flying character. The imbalance in the game eventually made me quit playing because I was left behind by players who used these cheats and I found it hard to go toe-to-toe with them even if I regularly played the game. Another low point of this game is the very basic low-level characters. Moreover, travelling to reach a certain point in the field is quite hard and slow. Apparently, the developers lost interest in the development of the game because of they have ceased adding new features in it.

The game is awesome, but given the lack of interest of the developers in enhancing it further and its vulnerability to hacking tools, I give it only a Satisfactory rating.
