Dimmdrive is a small application that can create a virtual hard drive in your RAM and copy a whole game into it. Because a RAM disk can be more than 10 times faster than an ordinary SSD, games should load much faster.

Elite: Dangerous is the resurrection of one of the oldest PC games which is ushering back the niche but popular space simulator genre. The game is developed by Frontier Developments, who don't have many PC titles in their portfolio, so we are very curious how they managed to adapt to the complex and diverse PC environment. As usual we are going to look at technical aspects of the game, how it performs, hot it looks and how it controls. As this is PC exclusive title and has been in public beta for a quite a while we are expecting nothing less than a very high quality PC version.

I feel as if the PC gaming community has a "I can't have it therefore I want it more" relationship with Metal Gear Solid. Of all the 20 Metal Gear games dating back to 1987 a measly three are on PC. On top of that, there was an 11 year hiatus between Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance which landed on PC in January earlier this year. Revengeance was greatly successful, not just in terms of game-play but also in it's port. You can read more about that here. However, Revengeance wasn't developed by Kojima Productions and was instead created by Platinum games and the earlier titles were ported by a third party so we have no real precursor to anticipate how well MGSV:GZ will perform. So, here I present to you, Kojima Productions' first venture into PC.
