EVGA @ SXSW!

SXSW boasts to connect industry insiders and the general public like no other event with panels, a free expo, parties, and demos that you can’t miss starting March 7th – 9th. Guess who definitely can’t miss out on this chance to share an awesome time with the public? EVGA will be at SXSW to show off the new Hadron chassis, an award winning line of PSUs, and NVIDIA’s G-sync technology.

To add to an already awesome event, EVGA is offering a deal for all those who attend event by giving out a promo code for the Hadron Air chassis, which includes a 500W gold rated PSU built right into the case and a 3 year warranty. You can also stop by the EVGA booth, number 416, to talk or ask us any questions you might have about our products!

SXSW is held in Austin, Texas, which is considered to be one of the hotbeds for the ever-expanding gaming industry. There will be tons of top-dog companies from the industry there to fill up the weekend if you get a chance to go to this awesome event (Don’t forget that the gaming event itself is free and open to the public)! Try not to miss out if you can help it, if not, there’s always next year.

Smite: Scylla, Horror of the Deep

Although the game is still in beta the character releases have been impressive, in my opinion. The latest God revealed is Scylla who is from Greek mythology. During game play she becomes more dangerous as abilities become maxed out. Each maxed out ability grants her additional abilities such as teleport, snare, slow and her ultimate makes her CC immune. For a ranged mage she has some decent mobility to allow her to crush enemy Gods. 


EVGA will be at Beachcon 9

TITANFALL - PC Beta Impressions and 7 Advanced Combat Tips

The Beta for Titanfall is over and WOW! We all had a blast. I ran a piece over at Gadget Review, which runs down my brief but unabashed impressions of the super fun Titanfall PC beta. I also offer some 7 slick combat tactics for Pilots both on the ground and in their massive 24ft tall Titans. The video above speaks to my #3 - "I Know Kung Fu". Number 3 explains the freedom pilots have with their jump kicks. Hint: they can be performed successfully up, down or any direction.

4. Hacking Specters

Titanfall only supports 6 human players against another 6, effectively “6v6″. The other ...

5. Riding With Friends

We’ve seen plenty videos of how a single Pilot can “Rodeo” a Titan by leaping/climbing ...

6. Burn Cards

This is Respawn’s way of making even the most inexperienced Titan Pilot feel like he’s in Beast Mode. Burn Cards are...

7. Homeostasis Of Speed

Stay off the ground and you will be rewarded. Chaining a series of wall runs together...


Concluding Impressions

But I am still completely blown away by how exciting Titanfall is becoming. I definitely want to see more maps and...
