Michael Dell Highlights the WSGF Rig


In a nice little bit of news, I was tipped off to the fact that Michael Dell (yes, THE Michael Dell) shared my "3 over 1" gaming rig on his Google+ page. He linked to my video of the 21:9 ultra-wide gaming reel. Pretty cool. If your on the G+, hit up the link, like and share with your friends.

You can see the post here.



WSGF HPTC Build


I've decided to build an HTPC based on the AMD Trinity APU, and I need your help in picking out the last few parts (case, PSU, RAM and Blu-Ray).

At a recent checkup, the pediatrician asked me what gaming console I would recommend. After going through the pros and cons of each current console, I settled on the Xbox 360 as my recommendation. Then after a moment, it dawned on me that an HTPC would be a better option for his (and my kids) to game on.

I figure that a small form factor PC based on an APU, with an Xbox controller, and Steam in Big Picture Mode will fit the bill perfectly. So, I've decided to test the theory by doing an HTPC build centered on the AMD A10-6800K. This will also give me a good testbed for future single screen benchmarking.

Get some more details, and make your recommendations in the forum.



Flawless Widescreen v1.0.10 Released


After a long wait the latest rendition of Flawless Widescreen has been released, this addresses a number of bug fixes, expands the functionality as well as increasing productivity when it comes to creating plugins - just about every plugin now supports signature scanning meaning that the plugins will work on just about any release of the game, including in some cases completely different builds such as demo versions.

Full details on the update and improvements can be found here.



WSGF Receives its Oculus Rift


As many will remember we Kickstarted the Oculus Rift, thanks in no small part to a short donation drive we ran. We bought in right at the very end, and thus were one of the last people to get our unit. I received the WSGF about 10 days ago, but haven't had time to devote to it.

Seeing that I wouldn't have time in the near future, I put the call out to local WSGF members I knew to be interested. Last night I dropped the unit off with peanut, who previously wrote an article comparing 3x1080p 60Hz multi-mon to 1440 120Hz single screen.

He will be doing the initial unboxing and putting the unit through its initial paces. I expect some video footage from this before too long. After that we should be passing the unit off to TheDestroyer and Zencyde as well. We are also looking at the possibility of setting up an event to show it off and give more people time to check it out. If you're interested in that, please comment in the discussion thread.

In related news, Oculus demoed a 1080p version of the Rift at E3. The overall verdict is that it is much improved over the current dev, and a solid step in the right direction.
