Portal Review
Written by Paul "Ex1le" Caillouet   
Portal Review



  • Publisher: Valve
  • Release Date: 10/10/07


System Requirements

    Minimum:
  • 1.7 GHz Processor
  • 512 MB RAM
  • DirectX 8 Compatible video card
  • Windows 2000/XP/Vista
  • 5GB Hard drive Space

    Recommended:
  • Pentium 4 processor (3.0 GHz or better)
  • 1 GB RAM
  • DirectX 9 compatible video card
  • Windows 2000/XP/Vista
  • 5GB Hard drive Space



Background


A problem that is beginning to plague the video game industry these days is a lack of originality. Sadly enough, the industry is beginning to emulate Hollywood in its relentless recycling of old ideas, so itís really nice to see someone trying something new. Valve has created massive amounts of hype with this Portal ever since it was announced and every bit of it was deserved. It presents a new and interesting way of looking at games and will hopefully inspire other producers to try new things.


Initial Impressions


I purchased my copy of the orange box through Steam and the entire experience couldnít have been easier. It was a few simple clicks and some credit card information and I was good to go. The download was a little too lengthy for my tastes but I suppose thatís the price you pay for not having to get up and go purchase it from the store. After the download finally finished which took my 2 days (University connection FTL), I started the game. From the moment I was greeted by GLaDOS, I knew that Portal was going to something special. Its art style and humor are original and engaging and help to draw the player into the game. The first few tests serve as a sort of tutorial for the player and helps to orient them in the world. However, its one of the few games Iíve ever experienced where playing through the tutorial was actually fun.

Steelseries Steelpad QcK heavy mouse pad review

Steelseries Steelpad QcK heavy professional gaming mouse pad review


  • Product: Steelseries Steelpad QcK heavy gaming mouse pad
  • Company: Steelseries


    Introduction


    The market for high quality gaming mouse pads has exploded the last few years. These days you can get a mouse surface made from plastic, glass, aluminum,and myriad other materials. Today we are looking at a mouse pad made of simple cloth that dares to compete against these more exotic wares.

    The Package


    The Pad arrived in typical cardboard and plastic packaging. The Steelpad QcK is a standard cloth mouse pad with a tight weave and quality construction. The box contained the mouse pad and a small pamphlet advertising some of Steel series other products.

Wolf King Trooper Gaming Mouse Review


  • Product: Wolf King Trooper Gaming Mouse
  • Company: Wolf King



Introduction


Today I would like to introduce you to the Wolf King Trooper Gaming Mouse. One of the less expensive gaming mice I have seen (you can find it for about $35) it has all the features you would expect from a high end laser mouse you would pay $70+ for. I was skeptical when I first received it but I put away my trusty Logitech MX518 and gave it a shot.

    Sunbeamtech LANparty Bag Review

    Sunbeamtech LANparty Bag Review


    • Product: Sunbeamtech LANparty Bag LAB-BA (Black)
    • Company: Sunbeamtech



    Introduction


    Toting your computer to a LAN party is always the least enjoyable part of the LAN experience. The case can be unwieldy and keeping up with your mouse and other peripherals can be a pain. In the past I used an Antec carrying harness to transport my machine to the LANs I attend each year but I decided it was time for an upgrade. I found the Sunbeamtech LANparty Bag for $12.99 + shipping and decided for that price I would give it a try.
    The LANparty Bag comes in either black or red with red being designated as LAB-R and black is LAB-BA. I ordered the black bag.


    First Impressions

    The unboxed LANparty Bag


    When I first pulled the LANparty Bag out of the box I was struck by it's weight, it is a lot heavier then you would expect for something made out of nylon. I discovered that all the nylon panels on the LANparty bag are padded (something you can't tell from pictures of it). This adds quite a bit of protection to your PC and was a welcomed find. The only thing that seemed to be missing was instructions on how to assemble the LANparty Bag.

    Medal of Honor Airborne Demo Review
    Written by Buk   
    Medal of Honor: Airborne Demo review


    • Publisher: EA
    • Demo size: 1.2 GB
    • Game release date: September 2007



    Introduction


    The Medal of Honor: Airborne is the 11th in the MoH series from EA (the 5th on the PC platform) and was delayed for a year after a change to the Unreal 3 engine from the Renderware engine. The demo covers the "Operation Husky" section of the game and your job is to destroy several anti-aircraft guns and then join up with reinforcements.


    The Briefing


    You start out with a briefing on your mission that explains the mission objectives and gives you some advice on how to accomplish them. At the end of the briefing they point out your safe landing zones are marked with green smoke.


    Briefing (click to enlarge)


    After your briefing you are presented with a loadout screen where you can pick your weapons.



    Selecting your loadout after the briefing


    Gameplay


    The action in MoA:A centers on airborne operations which means you have the freedom after you jump to steer your parachute anywhere you can. This makes the game different from the other more linear Medal of Honor titles. After you parachute into the action your landing is judged and if you have a "botched" landing you are vulnerable for several seconds while you recover.
