Battlefield 3 dropped last week, promising a strong single-player campaign, an impressive new graphics engine, and up to 64-person multiplayer mayhem on huge maps. Despite a rough few days post-launch, the game delivers much of the multiplayer goodness that it promised, with a strong emphasis on team dynamics and an experience system that rewards both focusing on a particular class and learning the capabilities of all four. We dig into the game's extensive online goodness, however, we also deal with its tedious, flawed, and boring single-player missions... Battlefield 3: Multiplayer Brilliance,... Read more...

In a surprising change of pace, it appears that GameStop will be returning to the PC games market with an announcement that customers can now place pre-orders for digital downloads. Seemingly following EA's lead, the brick-and-mortar retailer has begun shifting the some of its focus off of packaged goods sales and onto digital distribution. GameStop recently nabbed up the Impulse digital distribution platform, in a bid to compete with Steam and EA. The first game to receive the new treatment will be Deus Ex: Human Revolution, which launches August 23 in-store and online. Customers looking to purchase... Read more...
EA CEO John Riccitiello said in a quarterly earnings call yesterday that the game console cycle, that is, the 4-5 year long space between console development and launches, is over. Between this and recent statements that physical storefronts will be disappearing in the near future, it sounds like EA has it all figured out. During the conference call, which was spearheaded by reports of a good quarter thanks to Portal 2 and pre-orders for the coming releases of Battlefield 3 and Star Wars: The Old Republic, Riccitiello mentioned that the video game industry has been "radically changed." "Gone forever... Read more...
Video games publisher Electronic Arts says that the end is coming for brick-and-mortar video games stores. Speaking to Eurogamer in an interview yesterday, EA Sports Vice President Andrew Wilson made clear his thoughts on the future of game purchases. "There will come a day where I think that people will stop going into GAME and GameStop. And I use those purely as examples of retail," said Wilson. "It's important for retailers and us to understand what the consumer wants in the future." EA, of course, has something to gain in the possible demise of chains such as GameStop, as the company just... Read more...
One of the downsides to system reviews is that it's usually impossible to evaluate system reliability or performance over an extended period of time. Since boutique builders typically assemble rigs with a focus on solid warranties or top-level components, not being able to properly grade long-term reliability is an area of product coverage that some of you might find lacking. Fortunately, we're currently in a position to investigate this sort of question with one particular product and perhaps on a higher level as well.  Here's our look back in the review and moving forward with the Origin...

You know the drill by now: NVIDIA releases a new GPU, and pre-fab PC makers jump at the chance to upgrade their machines with the latest and greatest. This week, the GTX 560M was revealed for notebooks, and sure enough, it looks as if Origin PC was working in conjunction with NVIDIA. The reason? Because Origin has just made the 560M available on all of their laptops, including the beastly EON-17S. Pricing on those machines varies based on what other components you stuff in there, but trust us: the 560M isn't cheap. But what else would you expect from an option that just became available within... Read more...
Gaming desktops, by and large, are large. Ahem, or should we say, "towering?" Either way, the bulk of hardcore gaming desktops on the market today ship in massive cases, with plenty of room for extra PCIe cards, hard drives, and pretty much anything else you'd want to toss in there. But small form factor systems have a place in all of this as well, as shown by companies such as Shuttle. Origin PC is a company that started with just a towering desktop option, but as business has progressed, they've seen fit to reveal an SFF box as well. This week, they're introducing the Chronos, a smaller system... Read more...
Origin's EON line of gaming PCs was never a slow one. In fact, it was one of the most blazing lines around, with wicked customization options and a sky-is-the-limit vibe to it. Now, there's even more wow-factor packed in. The company has just upgraded the EON17-S with a 1080p 3D panel and overclocking options that push the CPU to 4.8GHz! Yes, that's from Origin, and yes, they'll honor their own warranty even with a chip pushed to the extreme. Furthermore, the company's tossing in a built-in 3D emitter. So, let's recap: a near-5GHz CPU, 1080p 3D and a massive 17" shell. Shame the starting tag is... Read more...
