LittleBigPlanet 3 Review and Gameplay

I just finished the entire story of LittleBigPlanet 3. It is an amazing game. The controls feel a lot smoother now than LittleBigPlanet 1 and 2. The new characters Oddsock, Toggle, and Swoop are really fun to play and easy to control. The story mode was great. It was very unique and some of the later levels are really difficult but super fun to play. The graphics were amazing, the sound and music was perfect. All around LittleBigPlanet 3 is a great game.

I played through the entire game with my son and we had a blast. Here is the first few videos of an entire set of gameplay. Each video is 10 minutes or less and goes from the introduction story all the way to the ending! I hope you guys like it.

Windows 10 on iMac 5k Benchmarks

I have been using Windows 10 now for a few days on the new Retina iMac with the 5k resolution. Everything is running smoothly. I played a few games, recorded some videos, used movie maker to edit them and everything works great. Now I decided to run the same benchmarks I ran on the OS X side. It actually scoresĀ better on the windows 10 side. Watch: http://youtu.be/e3HVVx9z5sw Remember this is an iMac 5k with the i7 processor and the m295x video card. I also upgraded it to 16GB ram. Here are the numbers: GeekBench Couldn’t run kept crashing NovaBench Score 1913 CPU 904 GPU 730 FPS 1944 Cinebench GPU 120 CPU 805 Unigine Heaven FPS 31.5 Score 795 All benchmarks were higher except for the CPU score on NovaBench. Another thing to consider out the iMac 5k is that it scored in the top 10 CPUs and GPUs of NovaBench and higher than the new MacPro. Crazy.

Ultra Street Fighter IV on iMac 5k (Windows 10)

I downloaded steam and installed Ultra Street Fighter IV to play on the new iMac. I love the Street Fighter series and I couldn’t wait to play it on the new Retina iMac. I ran the benchmark on it, and it graded the computer as an A. Then I played a round online. The final verdict: Ultra Street Figher IV plays perfect on an iMac 5k with Windows 10 loaded. Check out the video.

 

Retina iMac 5k Gameplay and Gaming

I started testing several games on the new Retina iMac right away. I will be using it for work, but maybe I want to use it for gaming too! And I want to see if the games can hang at 5k. So I should test it! I love testing computers anyway. I made one video using my iPhone, but I an actually screen captured some games at 5K and it doesn’t hurt the FPS too much.

World of Warcraft, DOTA 2 (Defenders of the Ancients), Minecraft using iPhone

Minecraft in 5K

Starcraft II in 5k iMac

Retina iMac 5k and Diablo 3

World of Warcraft fly through Jade Forest in several resolutions on 2014 Retina iMac

Eve Online Gaming in 5k and more on the new iMac

In the end the iMac 5k is a very formidable gaming machine that can edit and encode videos like lightning. This one does have the i7 processor and the Radeon m295x video card. It also has 16GB Ram. Those probably help.

 

 

iMac 5k Benchmarks – 27 inch Late 2014 i7 and m295x

I ran a few benchmarks on the new iMac 5k. It performed really well on everything, despite it having a small video card and very little cooling compared to the computer I built last week. Also, 5k resolution looks amazing. One interesting thing to note is that the GPU gets up over 200 degrees F, when pushed hard. Seems scary but it hasn’t broke yet! haha Benchmark video and scores below.

Minecraft Super Computer – No more Lag

I decided to help my 10 year old out with his laggy Minecraft. He uses a decent all-in-one PC, but it can’t hang with his adding, playing and testing new Minecraft mods daily. So, we both built a super ultimate Minecraft playing computer together. It is geting way over 100 frames per second in Minecraft with the settings on max. If I knock the settings down some, it can reach over 400 FPS with no problem.

As soon as I get the video together I will post it. With a 5Ghz processor, 16GB RAM and liquid cooling, it is a pretty awesome setup; and not too pricey.
