Review: Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition

15 years and a fresh coat of paint later.

Almost 15 years to the day that the original Age of Empires III was released comes the remastered Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition. Love it or hate it, the original certainly left an impression on fans of the franchise. I am not saying all those impressions were necessarily good, but they were impressions none the less.

What we have here is a remastering of one of the more divisive Age of Empires games released. Upon first...
 

AMD Reveals Powerful Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 Processors

Available starting November 5.

AMD has revealed its new lineup of Ryzen 5000 processors for desktop PCs. These are the first CPUs to make use of the company's Zen 3 architecture and are, as you would expect, the most powerful processors to date. AMD even goes on to claim that the Ryzen 5900X is the "world's best gaming CPU."

Lower end models will be available and starting at $299 (USD) starting November 5. The new lineup begins with the entry-level Ryzen 5 5600X,...

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Delayed

Pre-patch also pushed out to October 13.

Blizzard just said that World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, the next major expansion for their still popular MMORPG, has been delayed. It has been pushed back now until "later this year" with a solid release date not yet revealed. As is typical for these sorts of delays, the delay was an "incredibly difficult decision for the team" but they ultimately feel as though it was the "right decision for the game--and for (the)...
 

Review: Crysis Remastered Is One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

Maximum meh.

In 2007 the original Crysis was released for the PC. The big question on everyone's mind at the time, and even through to today, is "can your PC run Crysis?" Usually, the answer was "yes, but…" because even the beefiest of computer hardware had trouble maxing out the graphical options that Crysis brought to the table at the time.

Fast-forward to 2020 and the answer gets a bit more muddled. See, the original Crysis was very dependent on...

  • 1080p Update for Assassin's Creed IV is Available Now on PS4

    1080p Update for Assassin's Creed IV is Available Now on PS4

    Though it shipped running at 900p, the 1080p patch for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is now available for the PlayStation 4.
    "Finishing the game at 900p gave the development team the extra room in terms of the GPU and CPU usage to ensure the framerate never dips below 30 frames per second," explained Ubi.
    Though they also say that you probably won't even notice the difference between 900p and 1080p. Now, if it were a jump from 720p to 1080p, then yeah, you'd probably notice. They also s...

  • PlayStation 4 Reportedly Costs $381 to Build

    PlayStation 4 Reportedly Costs $381 to Build

    It's actually rather amazing that the PS4 only costs $399 (USD) at retail stores as a recent hardware breakdown found that the components total about $381 (USD) for the system. This is in stark contrast to when the PlayStation 3 debuted in 2006. That console was found to cost $805 to make and sold for "just" $599.

    To get into the particulars, chips take up a big proportion of the cost of the internal components. An unusually large microprocessor that is manufactured by chipmaker

  • Report: Next-Gen Tomb Raider Reveal Likely Coming at VGX

    Report: Next-Gen Tomb Raider Reveal Likely Coming at VGX

    VGX is the new name for the Video Game Awards (VGAs) from years past. It seems like this year will be no exception to the rule of "new game trailer reveals" at the event as Square Enix is alluding to a new Tomb Raider next-gen reveal at this year's event in December.

    It started off simply with an Amazon Italy listing for a PS4 version of Tomb Raider. After, a Square Enix representative told IGN to keep an eye out for events in December for a potential reveal.

  • Tested Compares PlayStation 4 Hard Drives - SSD, Hybrid, and HDD

    Tested Compares PlayStation 4 Hard Drives - SSD, Hybrid, and HDD

    Will Smith from Tested.com recently put the PlayStation 4 through a number of tests to perhaps answer, "how much will a solid-state drive improve performance on a console?" The answer may not surprise you but there are some catches here.


    Does this sway your decision to perhaps upgrade your PS4 hard drive? If so, which direction are you leaning more towards? Simply a higher capacity drive? Or will you instead opt for a hybrid drive instead now?...
