The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Review

After countless hours of Witchering, our journey (or Geralt’s journey) finally comes to an end, and what a journey it was!! Expanding over 200 hours, across a huge landscape, riddled with monsters both human and beast-like, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an immensely satisfying game. Imagine a richly detailed, alive and inhabited open world like GTA 5. Combat and monster design akin to Dragon’s Dogma. Difficulty levels to satisfy any Dark Souls veteran. Deep RPG elements similar to Dragon Age and Diablo. Story surpassing that of Game of Thrones, in terms of complexity, depth and quality! Now, bring all of that together, and you have the finest RPG ever made-The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. CD Projekt Red have completely outdone themselves, and refined this game to near perfection. The wo...

GC Recommends: Budget Gaming RAMs

We got to try a few new budget RAMs and these are our favorites. They give blazing performance while not burning a hole through your pockets. 1. Kingston HyperX Fury- Rs. 4.5k (approx) The HyperX Fury series  offers a range of capacities, a range of speeds, a range of colours and competitive pricing. I think Kingston could have benefited from maybe offering an additional speed such as 2000MHz or 2133MHz but I think 1866MHz is a fairly good sweet spot offering and most people would be happy with it. 2. Zion Xtreme- Rs. 4.5k (approx) Zion’s 8 GB 1600 MHz module tries to address users who need more memory for different purposes including gaming. If you want a snippy fast system that can handle many programs at the same time and provide a great gaming experience, we recommend Zion’s 8 GB 1600 ...

Mortal Kombat X Review

The game is in many ways an evolution of 2011’s Mortal Kombat. The gruesome fatalities and x-ray attacks that Mortal Kombat is famous for are more disgusting/gut wrenching than ever. These fatalities are made much more convincing due to improved special effects. It is very easy to get caught up with the visuals and forget there is a deep and meaningful game underneath. And we don’t blame you; cause almost each and every move in the game shows you yet another way to torture someone. But that doesn’t divert the focus away from its original motive, “K”ombat. The last Mortal Kombat delivers a robust story mode. The fight for the out world realm has stirred up great turmoil causing fallen elder gods and demons alike to contend for the seat by any means necessary. It remains a similar tale but a...

MSI GT72 Dominator review

The last time I saw an MSI Gaming laptop, I was mesmerised. This time we have the GT72 Dominator: a powerhouse gaming machine that has evolved much since its introduction in 2012. I love the machine’s heavy chassis, superb keyboard and excellent. The GT72, is a new Dominator with a whole new design. The current ones have been re-launched the machine with NVIDIA’s latest graphics architecture.  So let’s see what’s in store J Getting Started The new Dominator features a large 17-inch display and a wide, heavy chassis, plus enough power to make the average gaming laptop blush. The design is upbeat too with matte black aluminum with. The front edge (and the top of the screen lid) comes to a wide-pointed peak with red accents and a subtle crimson paint peers out from behind th...

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection Review

It’s becoming a familiar tale of late: a much loved game from the previous generation shows up on your new and shiny gaming apparatus, dressed up, and strutting its stuff in an attempt to lure you away from newer releases. The latest title to enter this ‘mutton dressed as lamb’ category is Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, a title which, while clearly jumping on the PlayStation 4 re-mastering bandwagon, is actually offering up a significant serving of Borderlands, in the hope that it’ll turn the heads of both series newcomers and vault hunting veterans alike. So, what does this compilation contain? Well, not only does it sport Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, but it also has every piece of downloadable content released for both games to date. If yo...

Battlefield Hardline Review

Battlefield is a game that has been around for a decent amount of time now and has been giving the Call of Duty franchise a run for its money. With Call of Duty coming out with Advanced Warfare, did Hardline do enough to win the hearts of FPS enthusiasts? Let’s find out. Hardline stars a young and honest detective, Nick Mendoza, a Cuban immigrant who grew up in a lower income area in Miami. New developer Visceral abandoned the old generic military vide and went with a cops vs robbers sort of theme, that honestly does give a different feel to it and helps segregate it from the Call of Duty titles. Has Hardline made the right choice with this new approach or should it have stuck with the established franchise? New Approach Going with the cops vs robbers approach could have proved both a risk...

Corsair Sabre RGB Optical Mouse Review

Corsair is well renowned in the consumer electronics field, with it’s excellent, competition-decimating Dominator line of products, and the Corsair Gaming sub-brand is already becoming a stiff competitor in the crowded gaming peripherals section, with the excellent M65 mouse and the K-series mechanical keyboards. And now they have gained an edge on the other manufacturers with it’s Chroma line of products which feature 16.8 million colour lighting which can be configured to show a plethora of what is known in the scientific community as “wicked awesome” lighting effects, which takes gamers in specific and mankind in general one step closer to impersonating a fabulous chameleon. Don’t take our word for it, see for yourselves: Design and Build Quality The first thing you notice when you take...

Antec Kuhler H2O 650 Review

If you are looking for a CPU cooler these days you’ll be spoilt for choice. There is just such a wide variety of coolers to choose from. You’ve got the air and liquid coolers that will fit into your average enthusiasts case too. And one doesn’t narrow down their choice on a cooler solely based on its cooling capabilities but also on the noise a device like this can make, in some cases also the colours too may affect ones choice.

Antec won awards for its Kuhler H20 950 for great cooling, excellent software control and easy mounting. This might not be within your budget to get something of this caliber, but Antec has a sl...

ASUS Strix Edition GeForce GTX 960 Graphics Card Review

Last year the GeForce GTX 980 was revealed and with the power of four Xbox Ones worth of shader processing power on offer. While that’s pretty good it’s also quite heavy on the pocket. For gamers who want to pack the punch on a Gaming Rig for under INR 50K, the GTX 960 gives you half the power of a GeForce GTX 980. Better yet, because it’s based on Nvidia’s ultra-efficient Maxwell architecture, the GTX 960 ought to perform much better than its specs would seem to indicate. Can the GTX 960 live up to the standards set by its older siblings? Let’s have a look. The GTX 960 is a pretty significant product in the line for Nvidia. The GeForce GTX 970 and 980 have been a runaway success. But most people or say gamers as well don’t buy high-end graphics cards. E...

Corsair Spec Gaming Cabinet Review

You know if you think about it, gaming is quite an expensive pass time. For a console gamer it has to be the high price of a game and for a PC gamer it is perhaps building a rig. Although many are of the opinion that in the long run PC’s are easier on your wallet than a console. But if you attend events like BYOC you’ll know that there some that go to extremes to prove that theirs is the ultimate gaming rig. One of the most important components to a PC gamer is the cabinet in which their rig resides. A cabinet is to the rig what the body of a car is to the engine.  It compliments each, well not necessarily but then you wouldn’t want a Ferrari engine in a Maruti 800 right? Anyway, Corsair has a bunch of cabinets that are easy on the eyes and also your wallet. A line-up of three pretty...
