First Look: Alienware Alpha

11/30, 4:09am

Alienware Alpha punches well above its weight

The Dell Alienware Alpha is a micro-PC gaming console that has only just gone on sale recently. It was supposed to launch with Valve's Linux-based SteamOS, and is designed specifically as a gaming operating system to power "Steam Machines." However, the final release of the SteamOS has been delayed into 2015, and thus Dell has chosen to forge ahead with the release of its planned Steam Machine, running Windows 8.1 in the interim. As a micro-PC with console-style gaming in mind first and foremost, the system now ships an Xbox 360 controller rather than a Steam controller, and offers a makeshift Alien UI so that it doesn't require a keyboard and mouse to set up. Was it the right move to launch the Alienware Alpha without the vaunted SteamOS?

Hands On: Styx: Master of Shadows (PS4, Windows, Xbox One)

11/28, 5:28pm

Stealth title offers slick gameplay in the shadows, utterly frustrating combat experience

Instead of launching the next game in the Of Orcs and Men franchise as a sequel to the action role-playing game, Cyanide Studios released a prequel with Styx: Master of Shadows. The prequel takes place roughly 200 years prior to the events in Of Orcs and Men, playing out the formative years of one of its protagonists, the goblin assassin Styx. Cyanide Studios makes a drastic shift to the stealth genre, something that might be off-putting to fans of the series. Does Styx: Master of Shadows make a successful transition from action to stealth, or is it merely trying for a different formula? Unfortunately, it's the latter.
