If you've ever played a shooter such as Call of Duty, Battlefield or Halo in online multiplayer mode, then you will appreciate how difficult it can be to stay alive when everyone else has better weapons and knows the game maps so much better than you. But now there is hope for nOObs everywhere, as a new type of online entrepreneur in the form of the virtual bodyguard arrives on the scene. One hard-core gamer who is offering his services as an online bodyguard caught my attention recently, advertising his services on the [URL="http://www.fivesquids.co.uk/Technology/2622/take-bullets-for-you-for-half-an-hour"]fivesquids[/URL] website where he is charging five …

Having just written [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/reviews/review345593.html"]a glowing review of the new Microsoft Arc Touch mouse[/URL] in which I was struck by the sheer beauty of the thing, I thought it only right to take a look at what is quite possibly the ugliest mouse in the world to get my reviewing karma balanced. In that Arc Touch review I happened to mention that it was pretty useless to hardcore gamers, which inevitably led to my getting emailed by gamers asking what I recommend they should be looking at when it comes to the cutting edge of gaming mice. This review is my …

Hi everyone, I recently bought a Gamers PC and I'm very happy with it, however I'm wondering about the transfer rate of the RAM, and not too sure if it's good enough...

[attach=right]14941[/attach]Hey folks! Here is a matter that is near and dear to my heart. I've always been a gamer at heart and, like many of you, I can always think back and recall the great memories that have included video games. I grew up with the conception and most evolving era in video gaming. At every age, I fondly recall the game that meant the most to me, the games that I connected with the most. Today, video games are part of our lifestyles and, in many cases, are a way of staying connected with friends around the world. I …

Reports are starting to emerge online that Microsoft may have initiated a cull of Xbox Live accounts belonging to users of modified games consoles. One [URL="http://pinoycosplay.blogspot.com/2009/11/microsoft-bans-600k-xbox-live-accounts.html?zx=e10c0b0fc532dc57"]claims[/URL] that a "trusty source" working in a call centre which handles Xbox 360 accounts has had an influx of "screaming teenagers who don't don't understand the terms of use that comes with the console they bought". That same posting suggests that as many as 600,000 Xbox Live accounts across North America have been disabled so far. Comments to another forum [URL="http://www.inentertainment.co.uk/20091110/600k-xbox-live-accounts-banned-by-microsoft/"]confirm[/URL] that Xbox owners in Europe are also seeing accounts banned for having modifications …

I've been doing a lot on social networking lately, mostly because of the book I've been writing on the subject. Social media is a real market-changer. Something else that's been happening quietly and in the background is the emergence of games as a serious computing application. A [URL="http://www.revolutionmagazine.com/DigitalPM/News/914688/Official-gaming-not-just-geeks/?DCMP=EMC-Media-PM-Bulletin"]new study[/URL] says that gamers aren't geeks (did anyone still think they were?), that they have higher than average income (knew that, if they can afford the consoles they're on an above average income) and - here's the interesting bit - they pay genuine attention to in-game advertising. I freely admit to being …

The official US PlayStation 3 blog has [URL="http://blog.us.playstation.com/2008/06/17/firmware-v236-coming-soon-v240-to-include-trophies-in-game-xmb/"]posted a confirmation[/URL] of the forthcoming firmware update. I think we can accept this as being genuine, seeing as how it has come from the Director of PlayStation Network Operations, Eric Lempel, himself. So no more speculation and rumor, the truth is finally out there. In what is, admittedly, a rather short posting Lempel confirms that the update will include the long awaited XMB access in-game to enable players to access the console menu without first having to quit the game they are playing. About time too. I am sure I cannot be …
