2 Ways To Test If Your PC Can Run That Game [MUO Gaming]

For the everyday, off-and-on PC gamer, knowing how to match your specifications to those that are recommended for playing certain games isn’t always the easiest task. How should you know if your GTX 550 is above or below a Radeon HD 6950? Problems like this, coupled with laziness, have probably cost some of us some cash that we wish we had back while we’re running a game at 10 FPS.

Revisit One Of Gaming’s Most Influential Series With The Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Website

A while ago, it was announced that Square Enix has released a beautiful new website to commemorate the Final Fantasy series’ 25th anniversary. It sounds tough to believe that it was way back in 1987 when the very first Final Fantasy game dropped for the NES. Since that release, the series hasn’t looked back. The Final Fantasy brand is untouchable and at the top of the class for the RPG genre.

Why Is League Of Legends The Most Popular PC Game In The World? [MUO Gaming]

Earlier last month, news broke that League of Legends, the addictive rehash of MOBA games like DotA and Heroes of Newerth, has officially earned the right to call itself the most popular game on the PC platform. This data was pulled from statistics over at time-tracker gaming service Xfire. As Xfire is a little outdated (or so you can argue), many have disputed the crowning of LoL.

10 Hilarious Meme Accounts That You Can Find On Twitter

Not only is Twitter that amazing and huge microblogging service that will let you know when your friends have woke up in the morning and what they had for dinner, but it’s great for streaming clever and informative quotes. None so may be more popular than Twitter’s ongoing culture of parody accounts.

The 2 Best Sites For Coming Up With A Fake ID On The Internet

Be it for whatever purpose, I bet you’ve used some form of a fake identity or throwaway account online. It’s natural to want to have a bit of anonymity in certain behaviors and there’s nothing wrong with queuing up your own fake Internet persona (as long as you’re not stealing the identity of anyone else). When it comes to filling out such long and exhausting forms, things can get a little troublesome and tedious.

Do You Use uTorrent? Then Be The Master Of Your Preferences

Do You Use uTorrent? Then Be The Master Of Your Preferences

uTorrent is by far the most widely used BitTorrent client, and for very good reason. uTorrent is very small, very fast, and portable. It is packed with every feature you’d need to be a total download manager and this long list of features is complemented by a very configurable list of options and preferences. In this post, I want to help everyone make sure that they’ve got their uTorrent client tweaked to their liking.

mp3DirectCut Lets You Manipulate MP3 Files In Almost Every Way [Windows & Linux]

Every so often I stumble across a piece of software that will eventually end up on every computer that I touch from there on. Such names would be Dropbox, Spotify, uTorrent, Skype, Steam, and so on. One of the lesser-known applications that belong in this same category for me is mp3DirectCut. While audio software like Audacity isn’t foreign to most of us, this little tool has some major advantages.

Switch Between Startup Configuration Profiles With StartupSelector [Windows]

I’m a little old-fashioned in the sense that I prefer to use my desktop computer when it comes to just about anything online. No laptops or tablets for me, just a nice comfortable seat at a desk and a powerful desktop that can get me through the day and then some. One problem with using a single computer so regularly is that it can be a little tough to transition between “modes.”

Soft2Base Automatically Updates 61 Popular Windows Applications

iOS and other platforms come built around automatic updates to core functionality and additional software that you should install. That’s one huge benefit of having the App Store. Windows isn’t quite there yet. However, that hasn’t kept certain third-party developers from molding that sort of a feature for you. As mentioned before, Ninite makes that easy on you. Soft2Base makes it even easier, and I’ll show you how today.

Look Forward To A New Twist On The MOBA Genre With SMITE [MUO Gaming]

I’d be lying to you if I didn’t say that I was just a little bit obsessed with League of Legends. It’s one of the most fun and competitive games I’ve ever played over the Internet, and it’s not the only game of its kind. League of Legends acts as a successor to the late DotA (though now, there is Dota 2). LoL and Dota 2 really stand alone in the realm of Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas (or MOBA).

How To Create Fake Website Screenshots With Firebug

When you think of faked or edited screenshots, programs like Photoshop probably pop into your mind. I’ve never been very creative when it comes to design and graphical work, so that’s nearly out of the question for me. If you’re trying to swap faces in a picture, you’ll need to learn how to use programs like that. If you’re trying to do something like change the text in a Facebook conversation, there’s no need. All you need is Firebug and a PrtScrn key.
