Man O’ War: Corsair – Warhammer Naval Battles Review

I love to try pirate themed games.  I don’t care how bad initial reviews may or may not be, I will always give one a chance and that is probably because of years of playing them.  I also love to play games where I get to face off against orcs and goblins. The best and most notable case of this for me is a game I just celebrated a 10 year guild anniversary in.  So let me fight those black sails and privateers through waters where there be monsters… on other ships as well as the deep dark depths.  Man O’ War: Corsair – Warhammer Naval Battles promises pirate combat and plenty of orcs to kill. Let’s see how she sails!

Full Sails To The Wind:

Man O’ War: Corsair is out now on Steam and first I’d like to address the game’s score.  It sounds like it was made by an orchestra for the History Channel and that is a great compliment.  The score is epic and sounds professionally orchestrated – it pulls you in and makes you think about the game having massive scope.  Massive sound=massive expectations, especially in this case!

The graphics are what you would expect from a Warhammer game, and it is truly Warhammer on the high (and low) seas.  These are some large boots to fill because usually when you think of Warhammer you think of fighting outside then maybe going into the occasional vehicle or siege machine. This time, however, it is the other way around.  You will get boarded by Green Skins or even board their ships, but you have to watch your back as well for the pirates or other countries who don’t like you and might want to use the opportunity to sink you.

You go into ports to get crew, weapons, ship repairs, upgrades and purchases, find contracts for everything from sneaking spies and diplomats between ports to making sure one ship or another never sees dry land again.  You have to be careful how many enemies you make throughout your journeys because when your ship is shot to hell, most of your crew is dead, and your sails are ragged sheets the closest port in a hell storm just might be what saves you.

Speaking of storms, the game has a terrific weather system that brings beautiful rain, fog, and snow – and sometimes these storms can be brutal.  But it isn’t just the monsters riding ships or diving from above that you have to fear, there are also great beasts beneath the waves that can tear your ship apart and leave you wishing for a bigger boat.

Man O’ War: Corsair is open world, with over 50 ports to visit (or sack) and you can play as a merchant, privateer, pirate, great sea hunter or any mix of lot to further your career through across the seas.

…Surprise, and that is just the humans!  You can work your way up through the dark ranks and even lead Green Skins in fleets to sack cities and torture citizens.  It is the Dark Gods you are trying to impress and their is no place in their royalty for the squeamish.  So (especially while learning) I suggest you save often and kill plenty.  Once again it is still open world and open season on the puny little humans and seem to fear nothing more than heads on pikes.

Shifting Sails, Headed Home:

Man O’ War: Corsair – Warhammer Naval Battles is a terrific game, with an open world and a mind-boggling amount of playtime.  If you like naval combat games, you will like this game. If you like pirate games, you will like this game. And, if you like games set in the Warhammer universe, you will especially love this.  Man O’ War: Corsair – Warhammer Naval Battles is a blast from the moment you get your feet wet and it is available now for about $30 dollars on Steam.

Corsair Unveils Hydro GFX GTX 1080 Ti

FREMONT, CA – April 20th, 2017 – CORSAIR®, a world leader in enthusiast memory, PC components and high-performance gaming hardware today announced the release of the new CORSAIR Hydro GFX GTX 1080 Ti all-in-one liquid cooled graphics card. Combining the extreme gaming horsepower of the NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti GPU with world-renowned CORSAIR Hydro Series liquid cooling and magnetic levitation airflow, the Hydro GFX GTX 1080 Ti delivers the phenomenal performance of an overclocked GTX 1080 Ti with all the benefits of liquid cooling. Cooler temperatures, lower noise, higher clock speeds, and easy installation combine to allow the Hydro GFX GTX 1080 Ti to offer all the performance, with none of the compromises.

Developed in partnership with the expert graphics team at MSI®, the Hydro GFX GTX 1080 Ti is powered by the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, the most advanced NVIDIA GeForce GPU ever made. Boasting an irresponsible level of graphics processing performance, the GTX 1080 Ti features 11GB of GDDR5X memory, 3,584 CUDA Cores and a massive 352-bit memory bus, allowing it to drive today’s most demanding games and graphics applications at not just ultra-detail settings and high frame-rates, but stunning 4K resolution; it’s the ultimate GeForce GPU for PC enthusiasts who demand nothing but the best. The Hydro GFX GTX 1080 Ti pushes that performance even further, with a factory overclocked GPU core frequency of 1,506 MHz, boost frequency of 1,620 MHz and a memory frequency of 11,124 MHz, squeezing every frame per second, polygon and pixel out of the GTX 1080 Ti GPU.

The improvements aren’t just in MHz; with the Hydro GFX GTX 1080 Ti, CORSAIR takes NVIDIA’s best and makes it better. By equipping the GPU with a CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 liquid cooler, the heat produced by the GTX 1080 Ti GPU is efficiently channelled away by a micro-fin copper base to a 120mm radiator, allowing heat to be rapidly dissipated and exhausted out of your PC rather than build up inside. The result is up to 50 percent lower GPU temperatures, which in turn allows the Hydro GFX GTX 1080 Ti to boost its GPU clock speeds higher for longer, producing up to ten percent faster performance versus a stock GTX 1080 Ti. What’s more, with quick and easy installation into most 120mm case fan mounts, the Hydro GFX GTX 1080 Ti and its radiator are easy to fit into almost any PC case.

To cool the fastest GeForce GPU ever, CORSAIR selected its most advanced 120mm cooling fan, the ML120 LED. CORSAIR ML Series fans harness magnetic levitation technology to physically suspend the fan rotor away from the fan motor when in operation. This greatly reduces friction and fan noise, allowing the Hydro GFX GTX 1080 Ti to run cool while the ML120 spins at incredibly low noise levels, even with the GPU at full load. What’s more, with 4-pin PWM fan control and a 400-2,400 RPM range, you can tweak and tune the Hydro GFX GTX 1080 Ti’s cooling to suit your system – cool and quiet, or maximum airflow for the lowest temperatures and highest overclocks.

Combining the very best of NVIDIA Pascal GPU architecture, MSI graphics card design and both CORSAIR Hydro Series liquid cooling and magnetic levitation airflow, the CORSAIR Hydro GFX GTX 1080 Ti is the GTX 1080 Ti, but cooler.

Corsair Announces Corsair One Gaming PC

FREMONT, CA – March 23rd 2017CORSAIR®, a world leader in enthusiast memory, high-performance gaming hardware and PC components, today proudly announced its first fully built gaming PC, the CORSAIR ONE. Designed to deliver premium PC performance in an incredibly small package, CORSAIR ONE brings together decades of CORSAIR memory, cooling, power supply, and chassis engineering with the latest in cutting edge PC hardware to create a PC unlike anything else available.

Powered by the latest 7th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors, the Intel® 200 Series chipset and an NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 or GTX 1070 graphics card, CORSAIR ONE wields the performance of a top-end full-size PC, contained in a system that’s small enough to fit into any desktop, living room or VR setup. Quiet, compact, and with the performance of full-size desktop PC, this is the ONE.

“With over 22 years powering the world’s best PCs, we knew now was the right time to bring together all our knowledge to create a truly exceptional PC” said Andy Paul, CORSAIR CEO and founder. “CORSAIR ONE is the result – unbelievably compact, quiet and with incredible performance, it changes what people will expect from a high-end PC.”

From its milled aluminum exterior to subtle blue integrated lighting, CORSAIR ONE changes what PC enthusiasts should expect from a pre-built gaming PC. Every part has been specifically designed and selected to fit the high-end hardware and cooling of a full-size desktop PC into an incredibly compact system that’s only 12L in volume. Measuring just 200mm x 176mm x 380mm (7.87in x 6.92in x 14.96in), CORSAIR ONE fits perfectly onto a gaming desktop, performance workstation or Premium VR showcase, delivering high-end performance with a minimal footprint.

Thanks to an integrated liquid-cooling system, CORSAIR ONE is designed to balance power with extremely quiet operation, even at full load. A revolutionary assisted convection cooling system draws air through a pair of passive 240mm radiators*, combining liquid-cooling with a CORSAIR magnetic levitation ML-140 fan to exhaust heat through the case’s milled aluminum top. The result is lower temperatures with minimal noise, allowing both the CPU and GPU to clock higher, for longer.

While it’s compact and quiet, CORSAIR ONE boasts the very latest in premium PC hardware, from leaders in PC hardware. “We’re pleased to see CORSAIR extend their core capability from a high-performance enthusiast PC components supplier to an enthusiast-class system OEM”, said Joel Christensen, General Manager for Intel’s Client Channel Business. “The CORSAIR ONE is an example of how Intel’s latest 7th Generation Core Processors fosters PC platform innovation. The CORSAIR ONE blends a compact form factor and high performance into an elegant design that pushes the boundaries for gaming form factors.”

CORSAIR ONE comes ready to deliver fantastic PC, 3D and VR experiences thanks to a liquid-cooled Intel Core i7 7700 CPU and air-cooled GeForce GTX 1070 8GB, while CORSAIR ONE PRO takes performance to the next level with dual liquid-cooling for both an Intel Core i7 7700K and GeForce GTX 1080 8GB. The rest of CORSAIR ONE’s internals are a list of must-haves for a modern PC: fast SSD storage in either 240GB, 480GB or 960GB options, roomy 1TB or 2TB HDD, an 80PLUS Gold SFX PSU, Z270 motherboard with USB 3.1 type C and 16GB of trusted CORSAIR VENGEANCE LPX 2,400MHz DDR4. What’s more, CORSAIR ONE uses only industry standard sized components, so when it’s time to upgrade through CORSAIR’s network of certified upgrade centers, it’s easy to keep your CORSAIR ONE cutting edge.

CORSAIR has been building the parts to make the world’s best gaming PC for over two decades, so when it came to building its first full system, it was clear that it would come loaded with not just all the essentials every gamer needs, but also none of the bloat they don’t. Pre-installed games launchers from Steam, Origin, Good Old Games, Battle.net and Uplay make getting your games installed quick and easy, all within a clean 64-bit Windows 10 Home operating system, and with no sponsored browsers, applications or anti-virus. “We’re delighted to welcome CORSAIR‘s fully-built CORSAIR ONE to the Windows 10 family of devices,” said Gary Fowle, vice president of U.S. OEM, Microsoft Corp. “The liquid-cooled Windows 10 desktop is VR-ready and great for Xbox Play Anywhere, and its small form factor creates a number of exciting opportunities for casual or hardcore gamers.”

Featuring the best from CORSAIR, INTEL, NVIDIA, Microsoft and more, CORSAIR ONE is the desktop PC that’s been more than 20 years in the making. Whether you use your PC to battle, explore or create, this is the ONE.
