AMD Rewards RAISE THE GAME – 3x Game Bonus!

For a limited time and while stocks last, get yourself a new RX 570 or RX 580 Graphics Card, or a Custom Gaming PC featuring this hardware, and you can register to redeem a special AMD Reward code that will unlock a 3x Games BONUS!

The games included in this promotion are pretty legendary indeed, with Strange Brigade, Star Control and Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey up for grabs. All yet to release!

Starting off with a closer look at Strange Brigade, which is set to release on the 28th August.

This one is a 4 player co-op adventure set in a 1930’s Indiana Jones meets the Mummy style adventure (from what we’ve seen so far at least). Explore alone or team up in 2-4 player online co-op, travel the ancient world as one of four dashing agents trained to tackle the supernatural. Seteki is not the only mythological menace to have awoken though, she’s brought an army of loyal beasts with her!

Explore remarkable ruins, solve perilous puzzles and uncover tantalising treasure while blasting your way through an array of undead enemies in thrilling third-person action that’s certain to bring out your inner adventurer. Hunt the foul Seteki through a rip-roaring campaign filled with dangerous dig sites, prodigious pyramids and crumbling caves packed with bountiful foes to send back to the afterlife. Decapitate the undead with spinning blades, fry them to a crisp with fire traps, crush them with a well-placed boulder and more. Keep those peepers peeled for suspicious clues, secret entrances and ancient contraptions that need re-awakening! Who knows what alluring treasures and buried riches await you on the other side.

Next up is the latest version of a game that many will likely have fond memories of from the original release in 1990 – Star Control is back!!

This latest version is called Star Control: Origins and is scheduled for release on the 20th September 2018. You are the Captain of Earth’s very first interstellar ship – Congratulations! There’s just one tiny problem. It’s barely worth mentioning but a powerful alien species known as the Scryve want to exterminate humanity. We need you to go out and find allies, upgrade your ship and save the universe! Discover and use these so-called Precursor relics to upgrade your ship and try to avoid getting eaten along the way so that you can save humanity.

No pressure though. Just the very future of the human race rests on your shoulders 🙂

The next one is sure to have us running, jumping, slicing and dicing around Greece in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey!

Releasing on October 5th, this latest story in the Assassin’s Creed saga carries us into the biggest war so far. Demonstrate your warrior’s abilities in large-scale battles between Athens and Sparta featuring hundreds of soldiers, or ram and cleave your way through entire fleets in naval battles across the Aegean Sea. Your decisions will impact how your odyssey unfolds, with multiple endings thanks to the new dialogue system working with the choices you make. Customize your gear, ship, and special abilities to become a legend in new environments including lush vibrant forests, volcanic islands and bustling cities.

GGPC Cooler Master BONUS this AUGUST!

WOW it’s already AUGUST!

We’re kicking off another great month here at GGPC with new BONUS Cooler Master Gaming Gear with the latest GGPC Gaming Rigs.  Simply purchase yourself a Good Gaming PC this month and you can register to redeem the latest MP510 Fabric Gaming Mouse Pad to go with your new GGPC!

The MP501 is a mousepad of premium quality, providing the clean surface needed for a flawless victory. Made from special Cordura fabric, which delivers responsiveness, durability, and water resistance with a perfect balance of speed and control. Built to last, the anti-fray stitching of the MP510 will keep your mouse pad in top condition and looking great on your desk.

A wonderful mousepad for any mouse, but grabbing this awesome bonus will also put you into the draw for our MASSIVE August Gaming Prize Pack which will be going out to one lucky gamer!

IMPORTANT: To be in to win the MEGA Prize you must register for the Cooler Master MP510 Bonus!

Our New August Mega Prize Pack contains four awesome pieces of top-tier gear fit for a professional gamer, the first being the outstanding Cooler Master MK750 RGB Cherry MX Gaming Keyboard!

The MK750 is a pro-grade mechanical gaming keyboard for the straightforward gamer, fully loaded with practical features to ensure success on the battlefield. Classic design gives the MK750 timeless good looks, with an eye-catching floating switch and anodized cobalt-aluminium top plate for a pro-grade feel to the keyboard. The sleek keyboard sports an RGB lightbar and backlighting which can be customised on the fly, without the need to download any software or exit your game. Macros work in a similar way, allowing you to record your very combos while in game.

Available with a range of Cherry MX Switch options for responsiveness, durability, and tactile satisfaction – our winner will get to choose the perfect MK750 Cherry MX Switch model for them, blue, red or brown, with all models including a removable magnetic wrist rest for superior comfort during the long gaming sessions ahead!

Our next Cooler Master Prize goes perfectly with the gaming keyboard above – the Cooler Master MasterMouse Pro L RGB Gaming Mouse! This incredible gaming mouse lets our lucky winner tweak its shape with included modular top and side covers, changing the grip configuration so you can make a mouse that works best for you and the games you are wanting to play. On the inside you’ll find a PixArt PMW3360 optical sensor delivering up to 12000 DPI with no interpolation and no acceleration and a 32-bit ARM processor which allows you to record and playback complex macros, as well as save all of your settings for use on any computer without software, 512KB onboard memory allows you to take your macros with you wherever you go

With 8 programmable buttons that can be easily expanded up to 14 thanks to the Storm Tactix function (Works like the FN key on a keyboard), we can now assign access more functions without adding more buttons. There is also a DPI switch which is found on the bottom right side of the mouse but even this can be reassigned to any other button, great news for the snipers among us who are looking to switch DPI levels on-the-fly.

Nearly every inch of the MasterMouse Pro L’s body is covered in a matte UV coating – this is highly durable and won’t peel, wear, or tarnish. To further expand on this dynamic shape those top techs at Cooler Master have made 3D Print models for the MasterMouse Pro L available here, so if you would like to actually make a unique custom grip perfectly formed for you, you actually can!

With both hands covered our winner is also going to take away great headset as well, and for that, we’ve got the Cooler Master MasterPulse MH-750 RGB Gaming Headset!

The MasterPulse MH750 is an exceptional headset, one that surprisingly hasn’t received much coverage despite packing an onboard sound card, it’s also had some of the best marketing lines we’ve seen on a headset, gems such as…

“offering a proper seal to prevent hearing the crushing reality of the outside world.”

“Adjust the obnoxious lightshow with a simple press of a button”

Funny realities aside the MH750 provides full audio immersion, with a lightweight, aluminium frame and five individual cushions provide all ­around comfort. Inside we get 44mm drivers to provide clear audio, both for communications from your team and the footsteps of enemies lurking in the shadows, with BassFX boosting available with the removable open/closed back design should you want to feel more of the explosions. It’s RGB of course, with that fancy 7.1 simulated audio making it great for movies and the like as well!

A pretty amazing setup for sure – but Cooler Master didn’t stop there – our lucky August winner also takes away one last awesome piece of gaming gear for their desk – the Cooler Master RGB Mouse Pad!

With nine vibrant preset light animations and effects, it’s the last piece of gear needed to perfectly match the other RGB hardware in your setup but it isn’t just about looks – the RGB Gaming Mousepad is also tuned for peak performance with a textured, low-friction surface that results in a mousepad that performs as good as it looks 🙂

Amazing gear, amazing August fun ahead – check out the latest range of Good Gaming PC builds today!

Good Gaming – IEM 2018 Certified Gaming PC

We’ve teamed up with Intel and designed a whole new range of IEM Certified Gaming PC which not only provide excellent performance for PC Gamers, but also qualifies you for a special INTEL MASTER KEY which can be used to unlock a range of BONUS GAMES!

Purchase any GGPC IEM Gaming PC from PB Tech and then use the contact form to register your build and the team will send you a special Intel Master Key.

Once you’ve got your Intel Master Key simple visit the Intel Redemption Site and enter your key, from here you’ll be able to access codes for the games included in this promotion!

Looking specifically at the current games which the Intel Master Key with IEM Certified Gaming PC unlocks there are three “Free to Play” ones in the mix, the bonus with these comes in the form of in-game currency that you can use to add a little customisation to your Starship or Hero. If you’re wanting to check these out for yourself right away you can find the download links for Dreadnought, Warframe and Fractured Space in our GGPC Free to Play PC Games Sticky Blog 🙂 You’ll also get Warhammer Vermintide 2 which just released with rave reviews (This one is multi-player Left for Dead style gaming gold) and XMorph Defence plus the acclaimed This War of Mine. (the banners below all link to YouTube videos)

A new addition to the IEM GGPC games lineup, Counter Strike Global Offensive is a well-known team vs team shooter that plays a big part in the Intel Extreme Masters competitions. The game series is currently celebrating its 19th birthday and there’s even a new UI in beta testing to check out. Take the roll of either a terrorist or counter-terrorist and compete to secure hostages, arm/disarm explosives, or just kill each other. With a thriving community of players, this one is sure to be a fine addition to your games library.

Jump in and experience Warframe, the latest updates were massive and introduced wide open landscapes, all new gameplay and even more multiplayer mutant massacres. You play as a Tenno, a mighty warrior with both blade and gun: master of the Warframe armour. Those that survived the old war were left drifting among the ruins. Now they are needed once more. The Grineer, with their vast armies, are spreading throughout the solar system. A call echoes across the stars summoning the Tenno to an ancient place.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Vermintide. Team up for the fiercest first-person co-op slaughter featuring visceral and ground-breaking melee action. Set in the apocalyptic End Times of the war-ravaged Warhammer world, you will be challenged like never before as you and your team of heroes face untold enemy hordes in a desperate struggle to save the Empire from devastation. Choose a career for your Hero, customise the talent tree, choose and craft a vast range of unique weapons and gear then hack you way through the ranks of monstrous invaders!

Dreadnought puts you in command of massive capital ships for tactical, team-based warfare in space and across the skies of different planets. As a mercenary captain, your motivations are simple: to reap the rewards of battle and build your reputation – and to be fearless doing it. Armed with earth-shaking weapons and the support of your teammates, you must claim victory by outmaneuvering, outshooting and outclassing the opposing team. Prepare yourself. It’s time to take the helm.

A unique fusion of a top-down shooter and tower defence strategy. You are the X-Morph – an alien species that invades Earth to harvest its resources and terraform the surface. Strategize in the build mode by carefully selecting various types of alien towers or throw yourself right into the heat of the battle. Build mazes for incoming enemies in an environment that provides exceptional planning freedom. Tear down buildings and collapse bridges to support your defence or to simply indulge in a spectacle of unprecedented destruction. Possess a range of unique alien weapons and use defence strategies like you’ve never seen before in this genre.

A favourite here at GGPC, Fractured Space in a MOBA style game with massive starships much like Dreadnought above, but with a very different play style and unique battle mechanics. Fractured Space is an award-winning free-to-play space combat game. Fight in co-op PvE or 5-v-5 PvP. Brought to life in the stunning Unreal Engine 4, giants of interstellar conflict fight in spectacular close quarter battles for dominance. Pick a manufacturer, choose a class and customize your weapons. Through experience, you gain the right to command more ships while earning credits to add them to your fleet. Tailor your craft to your combat preferences with crew and weapon loadout options then take on your specialized role when your interstellar juggernaut warps into battle.

In This War Of Mine you do not play as an elite soldier, rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city; struggling with lack of food, medicine and constant danger from snipers and hostile scavengers. The game provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle. The pace of This War of Mine is imposed by the day and night cycle. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout: crafting, trading and taking care of your survivors. At night, take one of your civilians on a mission to scavenge through a set of unique locations for items that will help you stay alive. Make life-and-death decisions driven by your conscience. Try to protect everybody from your shelter or sacrifice some of them for longer-term survival. During a war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival. The sooner you realize that, the better.

The ever growing range of GGPC IEM Gaming PC are available now (look for IEM in the name and the signature gold badge), each providing remarkable game performance and those sweet bonus games, keep reading for more on the latest intel Extreme Masters event!

Now, more about the IEM Event!

We had a blast at last years IEM Syndey event, and having just returned from the 2018 IEM eSports Event we can happily report this one was even better than the first! This was because of the way in which Intel has refined everything, providing an interactive and stress-free introduction to competitive gaming in the area around the main event, it genuinely was a bit of eSports for everyone 🙂

Upon entering the event center you’re now greeted with a focused range of things to do, I counted 7 sets of gaming PC’s setup right in the foyer, with most following a 6v6 layout and several offering 4v4 VR experience, with an additional 2x setups for VR racing specifically and another two (or was it three) offering a room scale HTC Vive Pro experience to a check out – commentators off to the left were chanting HyperX – who seemed to be running a constant stream of giveaways and off to the right was a similar setup from Acer.

Cut right through the middle and you have the choice to head left, for a host of food and drink options or right for even more interactive gaming zones, having already enjoyed a big breakfast we headed right continuing along at short distance till the oval passage opened up into another large hall, this one populated by a full eSports event stage which at our time of arrival looked to be jamming some Starcraft 2, Vodafone was to the right and a massively impressive stage in the theme of CS:GO map dust was off to the left with additional Intel game stream stations along the way at which you could talk shop with streamers and see how they configured their setups for this relatively new form of social gaming. The large CS:GO themed station provided even more PC VS setups for eager players to jump on and have a go – the theme of the event was clear – mini eSports competitions were taking place all over with quick prizes available for everyone – two team captions would choose players from the crowd and they would face off in a series of short games for a prize, much like in the Intel main event taking place in the grand auditorium each night, but accessible to all.

In the early afternoon the main doors opened and the crowd began to flow in through the gates for the main events – top tier teams facing off against each other in fierce CS:GO competitive matches – and this was a tournament full of surprises, upsets and crucial clutch moments.

This all played out pretty well from a spectators point of view as we got to witness extremely aggressive plays from all the teams involved, and this led to a much fresher, more creatively vocal crowd than the year previous 😛

All up it’s hard to choose which part we enjoyed the most at IEM Sydney 2018, this one was so much more than just the main event and we certainly hope that Intel continues along this path with the next, which we’ll certainly to flying over to Sydney for yet again!
