Review: CM Storm Sentinel Advance

The Storm Sentinel Advance represents Cooler Master’s first foray into the world of gaming mice. The move was initially a surprise, because Cooler Master were previously experts mainly on the chassis/cooler/power supply fronts, but this mouse is actually pretty good.

The Sentinel is one of the larger gaming mice in the market.

The Cooler Master Storm series has been targeted at gamers and PC enthusiasts, so it’s easy to tell where this mouse’s heart should lie, metaphorically of course. We’ve also seen the CM Storm Sniper casing in the same series which was quite good. Fair enough. Magnifying glass in hand, let’s go ahead to what this thing can actually do.

Geohot Now Works At Facebook

Facebook has hired George Hotz, better known as Geohot, although it’s not clear what his role is at the company.

FIFA 12 Preview and Release Date

The guys over at Electronic Arts confirm UK release date as September 30th, US release scheduled for three days earlier.

We hope he scores this time around...

There isn’t much in the way of wholesale changes to the game, apart from the usual improved graphics. Not too surprising, considering EA’s admission that it is becoming increasingly difficult to improve on an already nigh-perfect recipe. Read the rest of this entry

Need For Speed Shift 2 Review

Fast. Visceral. Unforgiving. You jump into the driver’s seat as soon as you start the NFSS2 career mode in a practice run to determine driver-tailored difficulty settings. And what a practice run. Your heart begins pounding so loudly that you can hear it thumping over the shrill whine of the engine as it thunders towards the redline, and you, down the straight. You lean forward into your monitor screen in an attempt to peer round the approaching bend, slow down a little, looking to the side you turn, and stomping down with the right foot, you sprint relentlessly onwards. All around you are other racers determined to get to the finish line before you. But beware Read the rest of this entry
