Far Cry 4 Review : An Exhilarating Journey through Kyrat

Far Cry 4 has been the most awaited game this year for lots of reasons. One being the fact that it has a lot to relate to India more specifically Nepal/Bhutan.  So as you start the game hidden in the towering Himalayas lies a country steeped in tradition and violence. You are Ajay Ghale, returning to the country of your birth, the lush forests and harsh snow-capped summits of Kyrat, to fulfill your mother’s dying wish of spreading her ashes. This vast and unpredictable country offers visitors opportunity and danger. You quickly find yourself embroiled in a rebellion to overthrow the oppressive regime of Pagan Min, a figure known as much for his sense of style and charisma as for his cruelty and naked brutality. Navigating the treacherous landscape, you find your fate increasingly determine...

PES 2015 Review

PES and FIFA have this long standing rivalry of competing for the title of the best football game. Every year EA Sports and Konami go head to head and try to bring out the best version of the game.  FIFA always had the modes and the teams while PES had the fast gameplay with those amazing replays. Konami took its eye of the ball for a bit, but now have stepped up their game and taken the fight right to EA’s doorstep. Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 sees Konami’s version of the game back on track and better looking than ever. Gameplay If you’ve played both the games over the years you might know that a majority of people would say that FIFA was the clear winner for many of the years and not all of Konami’s efforts resulted in success. But it no longer feels like PES is fighting a battle it can’t ...

Assassin’s Creed Unity Review

After bringing home the goods in the form of Black Flag, Ubisoft must have thought long and hard to think of an historical event that would fit right into their never ending Assassin versus Templar battle. Let’s be honest, after exploring the Caribbean with Edward Kenway , it was never going to be easy at all for them to produce something that was going to even come close to the ranks of Black Flag. But as you’ve probably seen through trailers and images, they’ve done a damn good job in making a beautiful recreation of Paris. And an open world sandbox that is so rich and dense that I felt there wasn’t enough time to explore everything the game has to offer.  The game has gone back to proper stealth based assassinations, while free running is taken to new levels with slick rooftop traversal...

This card however has one 6 and one 8-pin power feed but then again, does come with a WindForce cooler. The G1 Gaming has 4 GB graphics memory, is energy efficient and factory overclocked for you.

MSI GS60 Gaming Ultrabook Review

Note: Guys, if you want to grab some cool MSI merchandise then subscribe to our YouTube channel and tell us what you liked about the laptop and why in the comments. Introduction: As MSI re-launches its latest line of gaming laptops in India, there are lofty expectations from gamers. This is so since MSI has repeatedly shown a knack for producing gaming laptops that are well received by the target audience, and a quick glance at the GS60’s credentials suggest we have another crowd pleaser. MSI’s GS60 is a 15.6in machine that attempts to deliver the best of two worlds: it’s thin enough to pass as an Ultrabook, yet with a quad-core Intel processor and dedicated Nvidia GeForce 800-series graphics, it’s also powerful enough to qualify as a potent 1080p gaming PC. That’s why we...

Ubisoft Collectibles Arno: The Fearless Assassin Figurine Review

So I managed to get my hands on one of the coolest gaming merchandise that is floating around. Ubicollectibles has really outdone themselves with this figurine. “Arno: The Fearless Assassin” is a new collector’s piece inspired by the next chapter of the Ubisoft franchise namely, Assassin’s Creed Unity.

Also added in the box is an additional digital content which can be used in the game. Its a c...

AMD Radeon R9 285 Review

AMD’s latest graphics card, the Radeon R9 285, uses a brand-new core, dubbed Tonga. The R9 285 is designed to replace the R9 280 as well as bring the fight to Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 760, and it should play every game at 1080p and 1440p – although 4K will likely be beyond its abilities. AMD Radeon R9 285: Under the Hood The R9 285 is the only card to currently use the Tonga core. It’s a mid-range core, but it shares a crucial part of its architecture with AMD’s high-end 290-series parts, with the 1,792 stream processors split into a quartet of shader engines. That means the R9 285 has double the engines of the 280 it replaces – a move that should improve performance in a host of areas, from geometric and tessellation performance to general compute tasks. Tonga’s high-end DNA bodes well for ga...

Razer Kraken Neon Series Review

So I’ve been using the Razer Kraken for about two weeks now and I’ve got to say that I’m pretty impressed with the product. As a drummer I tend to turn up the bass a bit more than usual as I like the feel of a kick drum. I don’t know, but I get into the beat quicker and it helps me get my groove on. Or maybe simply cause I like extra bass. Anywayyyyy, once you have one of these wrapped around your head and you turn up the volume, the vibrations on your ears feel pretty insane. However this comes at the cost of draining out the highs and mids slightly. Design Once you get one of these headphones you’ll realize how thick the headband really is. And from the looks of it, it looks like something that will weigh quite a bit but doesn’t actually. Its a bit wei...

FIFA 15 Review  

Always trying to improve yearly production of sport video games isn’t the easiest of jobs. There are obvious things like new players that you can add every year but that does only a small portion of what the game actually is and can offer. It amazes me how year after year EA Sports seem to surpass all expectations when it comes to topping themselves and improving the game in ways sometimes we can’t even imagine. I read somewhere that FIFA is like the Coldplay of games, and I have to quite agree with that. What does FIFA have that appeals to so many? It would have to be in its simplicity; it has the potential to produce something that is inoffensive as well as appeal to many and only manage to repel a few, in the same way it is hard to find someone who doesn’t like Chris Martin, right...

Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition Review

The original Sleeping Dogs came out back 2012 on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Went through the game and seemed to have enjoyed it quite a bit. This game doesn’t get the credit it deserves as it features a fantastic location, Batman: Arkham combat styles, sharp writing and just a style of its own that can be found in no other. Essentially Sleeping Dogs took from Grand Theft Auto’s design all the right places and expanded on it with more attention. Gameplay Subtle tweaks to the open world mechanics make this game a real joy to play. Combating techniques are pretty awesome in this game. It’s not just your regular punch a guy till he gives up. The main character, Wei Shen, uses combos to defend and get through the levels. You can block and parry enemies and also grab hold of them and chuck them i...

NBA 2K15 Review

Annual sports video game producers have an upheaval task of finding things to improve in their gameplay every year. EA works hard on FIFA to compete with Konami who give them a run for their money with PES. 2K has does a good job with the game in terms of moving it forward and showcasing what it really can offer. However, there are some changes that are glaringly bad and some which proved to be an asset.   Gameplay The gameplay is solid as ever, though the issue of assigned target players being switched during plays was present in 2K14 and sadly remains in the next installment of the game. The game play controls haven’t really gone through any major overhauls as such, in fact are fairly similar to its predecessors’ and  remain more or less the same, including having the option of shoo...

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments Review

Sherlock Holmes has never looked or played better than it does in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments. The latest in developer Frogwares’ adventure series uses Unreal Engine 3 for a much-needed graphics upgrade. Crimes and Punishments takes place over the course of six perplexing, well-written cases that give Holmes lots of opportunities to do what Holmes does best: Snoop around crime scenes for clues, interrogate suspects, and talk down to just about everyone he meets. Murder is afoot in each of the cases, but that doesn’t stop them from being diverse; from an Egyptian-style ritual killing to a gruesome death by whaling harpoon the plots keep you riveted. And like a good winding mystery, the person who did it is rarely the one you suspect initially. The big new feature here is that th...
