Can You Really Get A Good Performing Gaming PC For Under $1000?

For many the $1000 mark is an important cut-off. Computers under this are generally considered affordable, even “mainstream,” while those exceeding it are looked at as luxurious items. The average selling price for a PC has meandered between $500 and $600 for the last five years, so even $1000 is a stretch for most buyers. But can you really buy decent gaming PC for less than a grand?

This Is What You Need for Real Gaming on Your Mac

Apple computers, like all of the company’s products, are supposed to be more intuitive and user-friendly than the alternative. Generally that is true, but there are some areas where Macs clearly fall behind the competition. Gaming is one such area. Gamers who want to use a Mac shouldn’t give up hope, however. The experience is not as simple as it is with Windows, but with the right software and hardware, it’s still possible to have an experience similar to what PC gamers enjoy. Here’s what you need to know to get the most out of Mac gaming.

The 10 Best MMOs For The Mac

Gaming on the Mac has always been a bit difficult, and many players turn to Boot Camp as their all-in-one solution for finding great games that work with OS X. This solution has its downsides, however, not the least of which is the annoyance of constantly switching between OS X and Windows. Fortunately, some genres of games now offer a wide enough selection to keep the average Mac gamer happy. Perhaps the best example is the MMO, a hugely popular category that used to ignore the Mac, but, over the last five years, has seen more and more games offer up Mac clients.

In fact, there is a good selection of titles, from platform-specific strategy games to titles ported from iOS and other platforms.

Angry Birds Rio: Still Up There With Rovio’s Best

If there is one game which has defined gaming on the smartphone, it is Angry Birds, which is quite possibly the most addictive smash hit since Tetris. Angry Birds is not just one game anymore. Its developers, Rovio, have now branched off into different incarnations of the Angry Birds universe and now you can even get an officially sanctioned (by George himself) Star Wars Angry Birds, as well as Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Space, and Angry Birds Friends. However, the one I am most addicted to is Angry Birds Rio.

Pica Pic Brings Classic Handheld Electronic Games To The Web

Before the original Game Boy arrived on the scene as the 1980s gave way to the 1990s, all eager gamers had to play while out of the house were handheld electronic games that came as part of a single unit. There was no swapping games in and out, you bought the unit, and you were stuck playing that game until such time as you (or, more likely, your parents) bought a replacement. I don’t particularly miss those days, but because they happened during my childhood I have an occasional yearning to revisit them for a dose of nostalgia. Which is where a website called Pica Pic proves its worth.

When I decided to highlight the best city building games on the App Store, I didn’t realise what a shortage of quality titles there were. Unfortunately progress has been slow for the city building genre on iOS, despite the platform’s ability to monetize well-executed concepts. That’s not to say there’s nothing to sink your teeth into if your mayoral urges take over, though you might want to reconsider what to expect from a city building game on your iPhone or iPad if you’ve been spoiled by Maxis in the past.

5 Most Heartwrenching Deaths In Video Game History

As with any medium where story is an integral part, death is inevitable. In the case of video games, all too often, death is something we just glance over. Player characters die all the time, only to respawn and go back at the part again. In shooters like Call of Duty, we cut down thousands of enemies without even batting an eye. Sometimes it gets to the point where we don’t even take death seriously at all. However, there are some rare, special instances where the death of a character brings your world to a screeching halt.
