$10 PC deal: Quantum Conundrum, Deus Ex: HR, and more

I've seen some deals in my time, but it's been a while since I felt it necessary to drop what I was doing and spread the word. Right now, Amazon is offering its "Absolutely Great Square Pack" for $9.99, which totally lives up...

Review: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680
by Ryan Perez

For some of us, upgrading our PCs with the best hardware and enjoying the most jaw-dropping games in all their glory is a not-so-distant memory. Even though I've consistently owned beefy rigs my whole life, I've spent less and less time utilizing their full power, due to a slowly dwindling and fluctuating PC market. For several years, my PC gaming life was akin to the Brooks Hatlen character from The Shawshank Redemption -- every day, continuing to feed the pigeons in the park, hoping for his old raven buddy to return.

Lately, the PC gods have arisen from their slumber and decided to bless us with some stellar (and demanding) PC-focused games. Now high-end graphics technology is starting to look more and more worth its market value. Over the past week, I've had the opportunity to pilot NVIDIA's upcoming beast of a doomsday machine, the GTX 680, and make obedient subjects of the powerful games that once laughed at my PC's inadequacies.

NVIDIA set out to make not only a more powerful graphics card, but a more efficient one that doesn't require a lot of extra tech (such as a whole extra card) to get the best experience possible.

Preview: Getting in deep with the Triads in Sleeping Dogs
by Ryan Perez

I'm so glad this game has shaped into what it is now, because when I first heard that Sleeping Dogs was originally titled True Crime: Hong Kong, I thought to myself, "Damn it, hopefully this will be a short demo." Once I saw the game in action, though, and was informed that it was always meant to be a completely original IP (with or without the True Crime handle), I shed all reservations and instantly grew optimistic.

I like it when games feature a real subject matter. I especially enjoy it when they portray that subject well -- not perfect, just with dignity. Sleeping Dogs is about the Triads, and undercover Hong Kong detective Wei Shen's mission to infiltrate the notorious Sun On Yee organization. His journey is brutal, grim and unforgiving. Basically everything you'd expect in the world of Chinese organized crime.

By the end of the demo, I was thoroughly happy that I bothered to check out Sleeping Dogs, and not just because I got a bullet-shaped USB drive out of the deal.

What would happen if the Just Cause series was a retro style top-down twin-stick shooter? It'd be Renegade Ops, basically. In fact, the upcoming PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC downloadable is by developer Avalanche and uses the Just Cause engine. Win!

The basic story is this: Inferno, the big baddie of the story, is hell bent on taking over the world. Enter the Renegade Ops, a four person commando squad that's kind of a cross between the A-Team, G.I. Joe and the Expendables. Yeah, it sounds very cliché but don't worry, it's supposed to be.

This is why people played Just Cause 2

Not for the story. Oh no, the story was very forgettable. No, people played Just Cause 2 because of all the crazy stuff that was possible. And thanks to the mod community, Just Cause 2 got a whole lot better. I want to play the game all over again now, and just grapple dozens of people to my vehicles.
