Hardware Review – Maingear’s Vybe SS


“Serious PC gamers know it’s worth it to shell out a little more green for a gaming rig with enough power to last them a few solid years between major upgrades, but everyone has their limits. Maingear’s recent redesign of its upper mid-range overclocked Vybe desktop series takes this into account, offering a slick-looking updated chassis packing some real oomph at a price that won’t bust your budget. Coming in at just under $2,000, the Vybe Super Stock is a real workhorse.”

PTOM Nov. 2010 Issue Contributions

Holy redesign, Batman?! If you haven’t already noticed, things are a little different with the Nov. issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine. This issue gets a major facelift and restructuring with some cool new layout tweaks and minor changes here and there. My monthly two-page review write-up of PSN titles won’t be appearing any more in the same¬†format, but I’m still contributing heavily to PSN-related content in the magazine. I tackle the DLC Roundup,¬† Minis Roundup, and a hefty portion of the Best Games section, and I’ll still be contribution other pieces from time-to-time. For starters, you can peep my review of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game on pg. 85. Love Love Love it, despite it’s few flaws. I’m a sucker for 8-bit art and chip music, but the game has some sturdy legs to it beyond aesthetics. Also, chip-punk rockers Anamanaguchi did the entire soundtrack, and man is it sweet. You can buy it separately on iTunes, which I have done. Great listening. Anyhow, that’s all for now. More PTOM related stuff coming up!
