FeaturesEdit

House of Cards - 4 pages (22-25)

Graphics cards are the heart of every good gaming PC these days. You won't get as much of a gaming experience unless you've got one of these supercharged cards under the hood... (Sparkle 5900XT, Asus 9800XT/TVD, Sapphire Atlantis 900XT, Asus V9980)

Community: Amuze - 4 pages (32-35)

It's one of the least prolific developers out there, despite plenty of backing from Sega, an excellent reputation, and a wealth of raw european talent. Naturally, we wanted to find out exactly what makes Headhunter's Amuze tick...

Hurt me plenty... - 6 pages (90-95)

Fear, paranoia and frenetic action. Gamers take these factors for granted today, but without an unassuming shareware game called Doom we would still consider corpulent plumbers and accelerated hedgehogs the pinnacle of gaming expertise...
