Review: ASUS ROG Strix Hero Edition Gaming Laptop

We’ve seen a lot of gaming laptops over the past year, both entry level and high end, but we haven’t come across one that caters specifically to people who love playing MOBAs, like DOTA 2. Thanks to the new Strix Hero Edition notebook, that’s about to change. Let’s take a look at what we have with us today, shall we? Specs Processor Intel Core i7 7700HQ RAM 16GB DDR4 RAM Graphics Card GTX 1060 6GB Display 15.6-inch Full HD IPS Storage 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD Ports USB 3.0, USB Type-C, 3.5mm jack, SD Card Reader, LAN, HDMI, MiniDP The ASUS ROG Strix Hero Edition comes with an Intel Core i7-7700HQ Kaby Lake processor along with a GTX 1060 inside, accompanied by 16GB of DDR4 RAM.

Advanced Warfare – Tiny Metal – Review

If you’ve ever been a fan of Advance Wars, Tiny Metal will feel like a modern take on that classic game. Developed by Area 35, Tiny Metal is a top-down strategic puzzle game, where you’re leading a charge against the enemy forces across various treacherous terrain. However, the fun lies in figuring out the various solutions to the problems you’re faced with, unlike there being a single solution to the puzzle. One of Tiny Metal’s many strengths is its gorgeous visual style. The characters look blocky, almost like toy/lego characters. And the color palette is vibrant. Bright yellows and greens dominate the screen and it leads to a great look. The core of the gameplay revolves around moving your units forward into enemy territory, and taking over regions. As you take over regions they start p...

Five Things We Love About The OnePlus 5T

The launch of OnePlus 5T in November was a little unexpected for everyone, considering that the company had released the OnePlus 5 just a few months before. Though in India you can still find the OnePlus 5 to buy, outside the 5T is replacing the predecessor completely. So, what’s new? Take everything you loved about the OnePlus 5, and add to that smaller bezels, an 18:9 display and a (very) slightly improved secondary camera. The OnePlus 5T immediately became my favourite phone from 2017 and I actually ended up buying the Star Wars Edition. Not only is it one of the best phones available in the market specs-wise, the competitive pricing just makes it irresistible. Here are the five things we love the most about this phone: 1. Design The OnePlus 5T follows the same curved body design ...

Review: ASUS FX503 Gaming Laptop

ASUS ROG is one of the most well-known companies when it comes to gaming laptops. While we have reviewed quite a few of their devices in the past, we haven’t really focused on an entry-level ASUS gaming laptop. So, today we have with us the ASUS FX503, the laptop for the gamer on a budget. Tech Specs Processor Intel Core i7-7700HQ RAM 8GB DDR4 Graphics Card GTX 1050 4GB Display 15.6-inch 1080p Storage 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD Ports USB 3.0, Audio port, LAN, HDMI, SD Card Reader The ASUS FX503 comes with the Intel Core i7-7700 HQ Kaby Lake processor along with the Geforce GTX 1050 GPU with 4GB VRAM.

Review: Dell Inspiron 27 All-in-One PC

When it comes to gaming, no one thinks of an All-in-one (or AIO for short) system. They’re mostly thought of as office equipment meant for regular use like documents, emails, web browsing etc. Well, that’s about to change, cause the new Dell Inspiron 27 takes it up a notch, and shows you that a high-end AIO can handle gaming as easily as any other task. Tech Specs Processor Ryzen 7 1700 RAM 16GB DDR4 Graphics Card Radeon RX580 8GB Display 27-inch 4K UHD IPS Panel Storage 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD Ports USB 3.0, USB 2.0, USB Type-C, HDMI, Audio port, LAN The Dell Inspiron 27 AIO packs the latest 8-core Ryzen 7 1700 processor, accompanied by a Radeon RX580 8GB.

Review: XRig X1 Gaming PC

A desktop PC requires space, sometimes a lot of it. A desktop PC isn’t portable, you can’t carry it to your friends’ places like you can do with a console or a laptop. But not anymore.Today we introduce you to the XRig X1 gaming desktop, which fits the high-grade performance of a PC into a compact form factor of a console, giving you the best of both worlds. Let’s take a look at the specs. Tech Specs Model X1-01 Processor Intel Core i3-7100 RAM 8GB 2400MHz DDR4 Graphics Card GTX 1050Ti 4GB Storage 1TB HDD Ports USB 3.0, USB 2.0, HDMI, DP, DVI, LAN Port, VGA PSU 450W Exhaust Cooling Noctua 140mm 3000RPM fan The X1 PC comes in three variants, of which we have the X1-01 that falls in the entry-level segment.

Black Mirror – Review

When I first heard about the upcoming game, Black Mirror, I assumed it was based on the popular show of the same name. However, it’s not that at all, instead it’s inspired by the Black Mirror trilogy of point and click adventure games released back in 2003. And it’s actually pretty good. It’s part horror, part mystery, and is laden heavily with gothic atmosphere that will easily suck you in. You play as David Gordon, who returns to his ancestral home in Scotland after the death of his father. There’s something amiss about the place, and the events surrounding the family home, and it’s on you to uncover these secrets. Inspirations from Poe and Lovecraft are immediately noticeable, especially in the writing, tone and the setting. There’s slow exposition, all of which reveals a compelling plo...

Welcome To Virtual Hell – Doom VFR – Review

When I think of 2016’s Doom, I think fast movement and absolutely visceral action. And translating that to VR is no easy task. VR doesn’t usually go well with fast movement, and in your face action might actually be a recipe for nausea. However, Doom VFR is an incredible mix of everything that made the latest Doom great, giving story context to the VR setting and making excellent use of the platform. Hell has never looked slicker, hotter or bloodier in VR as is does in Doom VFR. The shift to VR definitely comes at the cost of noticeable visual fidelity, especially on the PS4 where some pop-in can be distracting. However, this is still one of the best looking VR games you will play across platforms. The custom built levels are brilliantly designed keeping in mind the limitations of the hard...

Oh My Godheads – Review

I’ve always enjoyed couch co-op games, even more so since I moved in with my partner and wanted to play more games with her and with friends who would come over. Oh My Godheads has been an absolutely delightful addition to our collective gaming experience simply because of how easy it is to just jump in, pick a game mode, and have an incredibly fun couch-multiplayer experience. If you’ve played the likes of Bomb Squad, Oh My Godheads will feel somewhat familiar. The twist here is that you’ll be playing with “Godheads”, who often have personalities of their own. An easy example is the game-mode, Capture The Godhead, a twist on the standard Capture The Flag where the flag is a Godhead who will actively resist capture while the other team tries to steal the head away from you. Different Godhe...

Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package – Review

Dead Rising has always been about slaughtering legions of the undead with the wackiest of weapons, and the latest entry in the series doubles down on that with bigger arenas, better weapons, and a badass-er attitude. Let’s take a look at how well the latest entry in the zombie apocalypse slaughter-play-house does in our Dead Rising 4 review. The game is set in Williamette, Colorado, which had also hosted the previous zombie breakout, and takes place during Christmas time, around the central mall where the populace had crowded to in order to satiate consumerism. The mystery in the game revolves around the fact that the citizens of Williamette were supposed to have been vaccinated, and yet got infected. This calls for series veteran Frank West, and his sidekick Vivk Chu to uncover the shady ...

Review: MSI GV62 7RE Gaming Laptop

We’ve already seen some high end devices from MSI like the GTX 1060 Stealth Pro, Raider Pro with GTX 1070, and even a budget laptop with the GTX 1050 Leopard Pro. Today we have with us another budget notebook in the form of the GV62 7RE which comes with a GTX 1050Ti, putting it on the higher end of the entry level spectrum. Let’s find out how much of an improvement it brings to the lineup. Tech Specs Processor Intel Core i7-7700HQ RAM 8GB DDR4 Display 15.6-inch FHD 1080p Graphics Card GTX 1050Ti 4GB Storage 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD Ports USB 3.0, USB 2.0, USB Type-C Thunderbolt, HDMI, 3.5mm audio, LAN, SD Card Reader, miniDP The MSI GV62 7RE packs an Intel Core i7-7700HQ Kaby Lake processor along with a GTX 1050Ti inside, accompanied by 8GB of DDR4 RAM.

The Flame In The Flood – Review

There’s something strangely serene about The Flame In The Flood. Don’t get me wrong, it’s tough as nails, brutally harsh and unforgiving. However, the way it presents itself and the loneliness of your situation gives way to some really affecting moments in between the time you’re fighting the elements and nature itself. At its core, The Flame In The Flood is a procedurally generated survival game, where you play as a young girl and her dog companion. You’re trying to stay alive after a river floods vast sections of the mainland. The nature of the flooding or the river itself is never really made clear. Society and infrastructure seems to have crumbled, and you need to forage in order to sustain yourself. Since most of the land has been taken over by the river, small islands have cropped up...
