10 best overlooked PC shooters that you shouldn't ignore

Whether your preferred weapon of choice is an MP5 or a plasma assault rifle, the extensive list of PC shooters has an epic history that stretches right back to ID Software’s Hovertank 3D – a predecessor to Wolfenstein and Doom released in 1991 by the (now) legendary ID Software.

After the enormous success of Doom and other shooting games that ruffled sensitive feathers back in the early 90s, the first-person shooting genre is packed full of titles spanning virtually every country, world or theme you could ever think of.

We’ve rounded up some of the most overlooked PC shooters you might not have played that are still worth playing today – many of which can be played on a computer with very modest specifications.

Asus E402MA review

Asus E402MA review

There was once a time when nothing but netbooks consumed the sub-£200 ($300/AUS$411) price bracket, but fortunately Microsoft and its partners have recently done a lot to drive down the price of larger, considerably more usable laptops.

 

With the advent of true cloud applications such as Office 365, and a variety of streaming services that have quickly overtaken locally-stored media, lean machines such as the Asus E402MA are making ground at the budget end of the market alongside similar notebooks like the smaller Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 11.

 

Packing a 14.6-inch screen, the E402MA has a relatively modest set of specifications: a quad-core Intel N3540 M processor clocked at up to 2.66GHz is paired with merely 2GB of RAM and a rather paltry 32GB of storage.

HP Pavilion Mini review

HP Pavilion Mini

Ever since Asus launched the desktop answer to netbooks in the form of theEeeBox PC, the market for small-footprint PCs has grown to offer a wide range of options.

 

The HP Pavilion Mini 300-030na is one of the latest small, quiet and energy-efficient desktops to come to market, and it’s one of the nicest-looking mini PCs we’ve seen since the launch of the Apple Mac Mini.
 
With models starting at £249.99 ($269, AU$349) the Pavilion Mini is a competitively priced option, with ample storage space and enough power for day-to-day tasks.

 

The model we reviewed came complete with 1TB of storage space, a 1.9GHz Intel Core i3 processor and 4GB of RAM (which can be upgraded to 16GB if needed); a faster i5 model is available, as is a lower-priced option with a less capable Pentium 3558U processor and smaller 500GB hard drive.

Linx 10 review

Linx 10

 

Now that prices have significantly dropped, and Microsoft has dumped the woefully prohibitive version of Windows that was RT, Windows tablets are starting to become a purchase that warrants genuine consideration for many people.

 


The Linx 10 is one of this new breed, and at £160 (around $238, or AU$307), is not the very cheapest 10-inch tablet around, but it’s not very far off at all. If you’re thinking it looks rather familiar, well, that’s because it is – the Linx 10 shares almost identical hardware with the Schenker Element 10.1 that we looked at back in September last year. Save for a minor spec bump in the processor department from a 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z3740D to the newer generation Z3735F, which can burst at faster speeds of up to 1.83GHz, telling these two tablets apart is a tough task indeed.

Linx 8 review

When you think of cheap tablets, the undeniable truth is that you’re probably thinking of a plastic Google Android tablet to keep your kids happy. If I had suggested just a few short years ago that buying a fully-fledged Windows tablet (not those awful Windows RT models) for less than £100 was even possible, I’d probably have been pointed and laughed at by all and sundry.

 

How about if I suggested that this was now entirely possible with the Linx 8, which can be easily found for less than £90 (around $134, AU$173). Fortunately for Microsoft, the age of cheap, capable Windows tablets has well and truly dawned, and Linx’s 8-inch offering is perfectly poised to steal a share from underwhelming Android alternatives like the Acer Iconia 7.

HP ChromeBook 11 Review

HPChromeBook11(11)When Chromebooks first appeared, there was confusion as to what niche they were trying to fill, whether anyone would buy a machine which relies largely on Internet connectivity for functionality, and if manufacturers were going to take Google’s netbook replacements seriously.  May 2011 seems like a long time ago, and it’s only now that Chromebooks are starting to gain traction and become relevant. So is HP’s first effort any good? Read on to find out.

Nokia has been slowly ramping up the photographic credentials of their Windows Phone lineup, with the Lumia 925 easy rivalling, if not outdoing efforts from Samsung and HTC.  Their latest top-end handset, the Lumia 1020 totally out-does all of these rivals by packing a 41MP “Pureview” sensor with a Zeiss lens.  Read on to find out just how sharp that snapper is, and whether all those pixels matter.

PCTV AndroiDTV Dongle Review

IMG_0011 copyHauppauge have made a well respected name for themselves in PCTV devices for PCs as well as a range of capture boxes for gamers and video editors alike.  Last year they brought to market a dongle that enabled iPads and iPhones to pickup Freeview TV, and now it’s the turn of Android to get in on the party with its own TV-anywhere dongle (that works with Windows too!).  Is there really a need for such a device in the world of iPlayer and other streaming services?

Parallels Access for iPad

0

IMG_4240I’ve used most variants of tablet on the market, from the iPads to Windows 8 devices and every Android offering in between.  My main bugbear with the iPad and Android tablets though are that they are pretty useless for content creation.  This is where Windows comes in a lot stronger, and is why most cannot yet give up their home computer in favour of a tablet.  To fill this void the new app Parallels Access provides a neat solution to having access to your deskstop applications on the move.

The HTC 8X

0

IMG_3110 copyHTC started in a fairly low-key fashion with their first generation of Windows Phones. The Titan & Radar didn’t do a great job of selling the design strengths of Microsoft’s latest OS.  Fast-forward two years and HTC has finally released devices that do justice to the elegant simplicity of Windows 8.  Its flagship is the 8X, a handset that I’ve been looking forward to. Let’s see if it can finally win me over to Windows on a mobile.
