GUNNAR Advanced Gaming Eyewear helps soothe your eyes and filter out 100% of UV Lights. However, these are not sunglasses. It is not recommended to wear them outside or while driving.

30 vs. 60 FPS: Can you spot difference In Gameplay?

All across the Gaming world a new debate is raging about 60 & 30 FPS. The current gen  are locked at 30 FPS but games like The recently released inFamous: Second Son, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and Killzone: Shadow Fall, were all running with an unlocked frame rate which rack upto 60 FPS. But a bigger question is whether Your Eyes Tell The Difference In Gameplay? 30 fps vs. 60 fps has been a hot topic these days. Most of the AAA games usually target 30 fps on consoles so that they can ramp up the graphics and use as much of the rendering budget on the graphics as they can. 60 fps is usually more expensive and to retain smooth 60 frames per second, developers have to compromise on graphical quality. Lets  see a comparison between 30 vs 60 fps in various PC games (Sleeping Dogs, Dir...

‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Gets One Last Trailer

The final – and very Wolverine-centric – X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer is here in the last three months there has been relative restraint in the promotions of X-Men: Days of Future Past marketing campaign. Up until three weeks ago, we had only seen a single trailer, a grab bag of context-less photos, a few 5-second teasers, and a cover shoot for Empire Magazine. 20th Century Fox only saw fit to drop a second full trailer three weeks ago, to coincide with the overseas debut of Walt Disney’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. But now, with Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 releasing tomorrow, Fox has given us a third and “final” trailer. This is a clear sell to the kinds of moviegoers who haven’t seen an X-Men film in theaters since X-Men: The Last Stand eight ye...

Xbox One vs. PS4 battle goes to The Big Bang Theory

Last night the latest episode of the popular sitcom The Big Bang Theory showed Sheldon Cooper facing a pretty tough choice of having to pick between the Xbox One or the Playstation 4. In the episode–The Indecision Amalgamation—Sheldon goes through the pros and cons of each system and also mentions that he cannot buy both as he doesn’t have enough space in his TV entertainment center. We are not going to spoil the episode for you, so go ahead and watch it and see what he decides to pick. The part where he starts about which one he should buy is about 14 minutes into the episode. Microsoft pitched in and tweeted: “You know what to do, Sheldon” with an image of the Xbox One attached to the tweet. Sony however, didn’t say anything to this.

Nvidia unveils the GeForce GTX Titan Z

Well NVIDIA is always willing to outperform itself and here is one more example 🙂  Nvidia is readying a version that will be priced higher than almost all PCs.
