AMD Multimedia Entertainment. The Acer Aspire 5536G presents itse

Attractive design; Stable case; Generous configuration in view of RAM and mass storage

Illumination and viewing angle stability of the employed screen; Reflective display surface; Restricted opening angle; Constantly present fan; Relatively low battery life

More expensive candidates would be the stronger Acer Aspire 5935G (with Intel Core 2 Duo CPU and a hybrid graphic solution) or with an even better 3D performance the mySN MG6 Notebook (Compal HLB2), which would rather be seen as a starter's gaming...

Review: Left 4 Dead 2

More melee weapons ; Zombie-killing mayhem still intact ; Updated crescendo events

Where’s Half-Life 3 ; Characters are kinda bland

The Bottom Line If you have friends who loved L4D and they’ve already bought L4D2, chances are they will badger you to buy it. And, you know what? Valve did an excellent job with the sequel. There weren’t arbitrary changes to ensure the game was...

Left 4 Dead

 

Zombie apocalypses seem to be pretty popular these days. Most of these movies involve a band of survivors working their way to a safer area while battling out with brain eating creatures. This sounds like it would make a great game doesn't it? In comes...

Just like on the PC, the 360 version of Left 4 Dead is just immensely fun to play. Whether you go on the hunt or are the hunted, Left 4 Dead will leave you wanting more every time you finish a campaign.
