Tt eSPORTS Level 10 Mouse Review On TweakTown

"it is like no other on the market currently and would make a great gift for the guy who has everything and enjoys high-end toys. For users that fit this same mold, and like to have something that is surely a step above what everyone else is using, this is definitely the mouse for you. For those of you that may tend to be haters; yes you can get cheaper mice with similar functionality, but nothing near this sleek and elegant."

Noctua NH-L12 CPU Cooler On eTeknix

"Awarding the Noctua NH-L12 is a tough one. It could have our innovation award for being such a unique product in the HTPC/SFF market. It could snatch the Bang For Buck award for being one of the best performing and best value HTPC cooling solutions on the market we have ever seen. Yet the Noctua NH-L12 ticks so many boxes that we feel it is more than deserving of our highest award, the Editor’s Choice award."

SweetFX Mod For The Awesome FREE To Play Rise Of Flight

"SweetFX is a DirectX injector (or some crazy thing) that pre-empts your usual graphics appearance and imposes it's own settings which includes some cool colors settings, contrasts, HDR tweaks, post effects and a certain kind of anti-ailiasing. It works the same way as the old ENBSeries mod from a while back. Only this one has more features."

Jason - 777 Studios

Check out Jason's post on the SimHQ forums. He's included a bunch of split screenshots showing the graphics overlay in action.... Pretty sweet!

Haven't come across RoF before? From their website:

"Rise of Flight is a next generation WWI combat flight simulator for the PC. Immerse yourself in realistic aerial combat above the trenches. Fly famous aircraft including the Fokker Dr.1, Sopwith Camel, S.E.5a and Albatros D.Va. and many more!"

This top shelf WWI era simulator is FREE TO PLAY as mentioned earlier, you can download the game which includes an aircraft for both sides of the conflict. You can then choose to purchase additional aircraft to taste from the online shop - but the game is completely playable with just the included free aircraft, in both multi and single player modes....

That might just leave you with the funds to pick up a quality flight controller and a TrackIR5 - You'll want both to get the best from this amazing sim!

BattleTech Marauder Instrumental In Russian Revolution Of 1917!

"The VCE exam body has been left red faced after a doctored artwork depicting a huge robot helping socialist revolutionaries during the Russian Revolution was accidentally included in this year’s year 12 history exam taken by 5700 students.

Exams for the popular History: Revolution subject were original supposed to include the artwork Storming the Winter palace on 25th October 1917 by Nikolai Kochergin, which depicts events during the October Revolution, which was instrumental in the larger Russian Revolution of 1917.

But when students opened their exam this morning they found an altered version of the work with what appear to be a large "BattleTech Marauder" robot aiding the rising revolutionaries in the background."

Tom Arup - The Age

Read Tom's full History transformed in VCE exam article on The Age. When piloting revolutionary battlemechs, be sure to use the right controller for the job!

History is just so revisionist these days..... When I did the same course over 15 years ago, no-one realised the critical role played by battlemech's during the revolution!

TechReport's Windows 8 System Guide - Noctua, Thermaltake & Logitech All Good!

"The situation is much simpler for us desktop users and gamers. Windows 8's new desktop is a pretty clear improvement over Windows 7, so aside from the odd trip into the Modern UI twilight zone, the new OS represents a net gain. Coupled with the latest hardware refinements we just mentioned, that sets us up quite nicely for the holidays."

Cyril Kowaliski - TechReport

Read Cyril's full Windows 8 system guide on the TechReport. You'll note that three of our brands (at least!) received a mention as ideal solutions for the new 'lucky 8' OS - Noctua, Thermaltake & Logitech.
