Wednesday Gaming Goodness

If you've got a bit of extra time on your hands, there are a few games that may be worth chekcing out.  eTeknix looks at ShootMania Storm PC and gives us their thoughts on this competitive onlien FPS.  Techgage looks at Top-Down Racing Destruction: Death Rally as well as Darksiders II

TweakTown mixes things up with the 3DS title, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance.  This game is quite a bit different than other games that I've played, but it does look interesting.  HiTechLegion wraps it up with The Secret World, and not only gives us a good look at this game, but they also give us a performance review on some pretty decent hardware.


Bluetooth Controlled RGB Bulbs

These bulbs are pretty cool - although I can see some major issues with them in houses with more than one kid - or more than one adult for that matter.


Cooling Collection

As we pound our way through the news, we've got a few coolers worth sharing.  MegaTechNews gives us the Chillbed Aluminum Laptop Cooling Stand while TweakTown gets crazy with the EKWB EK-Supremacy CPU Water Block and Custom Kit. 

On the fan side of things, HiTechLegion shows off the 120mm Vortex/Casino/Chopper Fans from Lepa and Vortez sheds some light on the Phanteks PH-TC14PE 140mm Fan.

HardwareSecrets wraps this up with the Phanteks PH-TC14CS CPU Cooler and brings it all home.


AMD Trims Radeon Prices Yet Again

AMD has trimmed the price of their Radeon cards here in the wake of the successful NVIDIA GTX 660 Ti launch.  Until this price drop trickles down the line, the best performance-for-gaming dollar goes to NVIDIA.  This is great competition and it's nice that AMD responds so quickly.  There is a $20-$50 drop on cards across the board.

AMD doesn't plan to roll into the holiday release season in its usual posture: sitting back and watching games that have been shepherded to market by Nvidia's "The Way It's Meant To Be Played" program dominating the PC sales charts (and the benchmark suites) yet again.

Steam 'Big Picture' Beta Coming Soon

Gaming on the big screen in your home has a satisfying feeling and Steam is joining the likes of PlayStation and Xbox with thier 'Big Picture' project that will be coming to beta right away.  This idea to hook up your PC to your TV and game.  That's nothing new, but the interface for this application is getting a major overhaul and it looks like it could be a great way to push PC gaming to the living room.  Joystiq has more details.

Heading to the living room—or anywhere there’s a big screen—is Steam’s soon-to-be-released big-picture mode, offering simple, easy-to-read navigation designed specifically for TV. With full controller support, big-picture mode will let gamers kick back and enjoy their favorite games on the biggest screen in the house.


OnLive Hits Reset

OnLive has an intersting service that is very server heavy.  Lately, things haven't been going quite as good and their server costs are far higher than their current subscription rate.  In order to stay alive and somewhat kicking, they just performed Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors.  This allows them to basically delcare bankrupcy and bail on server contracts so they can hit reset and scale back.  Engadget has more details.

We can now confirm that the assets of OnLive, Inc. have been acquired into a newly-formed company and is backed by substantial funding, and which will continue to operate the OnLive Game and Desktop services, as well as support all of OnLive's apps and devices, as well as game, productivity and enterprise partnerships. The new company is hiring a large percentage of OnLive, Inc.'s staff across all departments and plans to continue to hire substantially more people, including additional OnLive employees.
