GIZORAMA - Earlier in the year we had an awesome idea at GIZORAMA headquarters, we had a game preview build and had the OK from the game’s developers and publishers to show off anything we wish from the build as long as it did not contain any spoilers. We figured we’d live stream our gaming antics to help let other gamers know how the game looked and played. We fired up our systems, installed a few programs, and got on our way to streaming our game preview shenanigans onto the interwebs. Only problem was that our stream lasted a matter of seconds before things started going wrong. First we had server issues where there was too much ping in the connection, then our accounts were wiped from the streaming program, then another issue where we had our system lock up due to the massive amount of memory being hogged by the streaming application. It wasn’t long until we had enough and threw our arms up in defeat. We needed a solution, and we needed one now.
It took a few months after our mishap, but Corel recently released the Roxio Game Capture HD Pro. Is this what we need at GIZORAMA? Is this what every gamer needs at home to capture their epic raids and/or headshots? Or is this just another gimmick that’ll end up in your desk’s drawer in a few days only to see the light of day when scrounging around for a pen?
