Hitman 2 PC review

IO Interactive’s sudden departure from Square Enix, taking their Hitman franchise with them, was a surprise. Whilst the episodic nature of the game wasn’t to everybody’s taste, 2016’s Hitman was a solid entry into the veteran stealth series.

Hitman 2 is effectively the second season. In fact, all the episodes of Hitman Season One are available as a DLC pack (which is, if you haven’t already played them, an essential purchase). Continue reading Hitman 2 PC review

Call of Duty Black Ops IIII PS4 review

For the last fifteen years the Call of Duty franchise has been offering gamers some of the best multiplayer combat experiences you can get. The games have also been whipping players from the Second World War into the distant future, provided some of the most well-crafted single-player first-person-shooter games ever made. I’ve often said that many of the Call of Duty single-player campaigns are some of the best movies that I’ve never watched.

Treyarch’s latest addition to the Call of Duty franchise throws fifteen years of single-player narrative gameplay out the window. For whatever reason, with Call of Duty Black Ops IIII, we only get a multiplayer game. Continue reading Call of Duty Black Ops IIII PS4 review

Trust us, we’re Nvidia: GeForce RTX 20-series GPU preview

Nvidia’s ridiculously expensive RTX graphics have arrived full of promise, but with very little to actually show for themselves.

I’m currently reviewing a GeForce RTX 2080ti graphics processing unit. I’m not really ready to present my findings, because, well, to be honest, I’ve not really got anything for you. Continue reading Trust us, we’re Nvidia: GeForce RTX 20-series GPU preview

A little while ago I was shown the little “+” on the Intel stickers adorning laptops powered by the latest 8th Gen CPUs. The plus means that the computer uses Intel’s Optane memory.

Chipzilla promises that adding Optane memory to your 8th generation i5, i7 or i9 Intel CPU will let you enjoy a faster, smoother, and amazingly responsive computing experience. But does it really? Continue reading
