On June, 2014, Sara Jansson the Senior Producer on Mirror’s Edge wrote the following:

Hi,

 It's been a full year since we revealed that we are indeed making a new Mirror's Edge game here at DICE. I wanted to let you know that the game is progressing nicely and I think you’re going to love it! I know many of you probably wish we would show more of the game, but we’re still pretty early in development and our passionate core Mirror’s Edge team is working full on to make the best game possible.

 Mirror's Edge is all about fluidity, physicality and movement. We want to make sure we evolve the game and Faith in a way that gives you an exciting new player experience. We want the game to be accessible enough to embrace new players while at the same time reward the skilled player. We are also committed to provide the best 1st person close combat in the world. Advanced combat that is integrated into an improved fluidity of movement. These are not small undertakings, but they are challenges that we are up for.... read the full announcement >>HERE<<

Game24 @ Hanger 8, Santa Monica

Nvidia held their GAME 24 Celebration of PC Gaming on September 18th.  Several events around the globe took place, Los Angeles, London, Shanghai to name a few.  There were also local satellite events a different locations, and the entire event was broadcast via a live stream on Twitch.




A few of us at EVGA were fortunate to attend the Los Angeles area event which took place in Hanger 8 in Santa Monica.  The event began with the check-in line and the reception area where you could listen to the DJ's music, sample the various offerings of food and beverages, and mingle with the other attendees. 


At around 6:00PM the doors to Hanger 8 were open to reveal a stage, giant presentations screen and seating those wishing to sit.   Jen-Hsun Huang, NVIDIA's President and CEO appeared and the excitement began.  He introduced Maxewell, talked about how its 2 X's the performance of the 700 series GPU, introduced some really cool new features and projects they have been working on: 

Dynamic Super Resolution,

Multi-Frame Sampled Anti-Aliasing

Voxel Global Illumination  

VR Direct.

There were some amazing demonstrations of all these features.  Also shows how the NVIDIA Engineers debunked the conspiracy theories of the lunar landing pictures, and gave us all a lot to look forward to with the new Maxwell GPUs.



To add to the event, the Hanger 8 doors were fully open to reveal an amazing set up of Shield tables, 4K Surround running two GTX 980s, a slew of gaming setup with different games, and my personal favorite, 4 stations featuring the Oculus Rift and 2 playable demos.  If you haven't experienced the Oculus Rift, I would highly recommend it, it is an amazing experience.  




The rest of the evening was filled with great music, dance battles, plenty of gaming opportunities, raffles and celebrities like EVGAs own KINGPIN , Elric from Tech of Tomorrow, the man himself Jen-Hsun Huang.   We would to take this opportunity to thank NVIDIA for their hospitality, and for an amazing event, we all had a great time!



EVGA's Hadron Case Building Guide!


The EVGA Hadron mini ITX case is an impressively small and easy to handle case. It comes with a built-in 500W gold rated power supply, 3 year warranty, and enough space to slide in one power-packed NVIDIA Titan GPU. To make this case even better, the Hadron comes in two types: the Air and the Hydro, so you have the option to liquid cool your mini ITX rig if you want it or keep it air cooled. Although the Hadron is EVGA’s first case, it comes into the game as a formidable opponent in the current market with several bonuses listed earlier that other competitors may not have. If you haven’t checked out reviews already, be sure to do so when you can. The sheer size and capability of this case might inspire you to want to build a mini ITX rig, or at least show you what’s new on the market! This case allows you to cut down on space, thus granting you mobility while still allowing you to keep parts that pack a punch.

Thinking about building your own mini ITX rig or have you bought the Hadron and want some tips on putting it together? TeamEVGA has taken the time to put together this great instructional video on putting your PC together using the Hadron case, showing how easy and smooth the process can be. Check out the video below and be sure to share with your friends! If you’ve already built this rig, however, show us what you got by sharing your pictures with us on our Twitter or Facebook pages!
