Game Booster 3 Adds Diagnose Feature, Plays Nice With Steam [News]

gameboosterthumb   Game Booster 3 Adds Diagnose Feature, Plays Nice With Steam [News]Sometimes, the gaming experience can be legitimately distorted by computer hiccups caused by background processes or problems with a game’s files structure. One solution that we’ve reviewed in the past is Game Booster, which has just received an update to its third incarnation.

Diagnosing issues with your computer can now be done through a diagnose report, which is generated in the software and presents a list of parameters and potential issues. Alternatively, if you’re not keen on finding issues yourself, it could be a handy file to present to someone with more advanced knowledge.

The rest of the new features are less complex. One important addition is the ability to detect Steam games and add them to Game Booster’s “GameBox” launcher. I tested this functionality, and while users will still need to log into Steam, it is otherwise surprisingly smooth.  With Steam games now easy to launch, Game Booster makes a more competent argument for itself as a game launcher than ever before.

There’s a wealth of other minor improvements, as well, including interface changes and bug fixes. As before, Game Booster 3 is available free from developer IObit. As I summarized in my full look at Game Booster 2, it’s the launcher functionality, not the performance improvement (though that is nice, as well), which is this program’s best feature.

I just got a $827.89 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HTV for only $251.92, they are both coming tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prîces at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for.

What is it about the game launching that you like so much? i use Steam to launch all my games, Steam installed or otherwise. I liked the service stop/start of Gamebooster to close the likes of Dropbox etc, I would have through that was the more important feature?

The service stop/start is cool. I’m just not sure of the performance impact being a game changer. I like the game launcher because it is quick, works with all titles, and works both offline and online. Personally I don’t like Steam that much as a straight game launcher, I don’t like logging in and I don’t like dealing with the offer pop-ups.
