Devil May Cry 5

On March 8th, 2019, Devil May Cry 5 will get released with a new tale in Dante’s saga. Besides that, it seems he’s not significantly the main hero this time around. Therefore, with some exciting new gameplay features like being able to ride Nero’s detachable arm like a rocket skateboard on top of the already quick-paced high octane hack and slash action.

Story

Several years after the order of the sword incident. An unusual event arrives in Red Grave City. A gigantic tree penetrates through the surface in the middle of the town, attacking with roots that drain the citizens of their blood.

Therefore, Our young Devil hunter Nero shoots into the Red Grave aboard the mobile Devil May Cry vehicle with his partner Nico. Nico is a self-styled “artisan of arms” which provides Nero with new weapons. However, Nero seeks to recover many things in Red Grave: Lost pride, stolen powers, and a man who was left behind.

Fortnite Season 5-10 Easter Eggs you missed

Fortnite season 5 is in full swing with so many changes new locations to explore and new game modes to enjoy. While you’re busy building massive worlds in playground mode or knocking off enemies one by one, there are a number of Easter eggs you may have missed along the way.

Here are some of the season 5 Easter eggs you didn’t know.

10. Golf Shots in Fortnite Season 5

For some of us hunting down enemies and killing them just wasn’t enough. We already had the privilege of using soccer fields in previous seasons of Fortnite. But now in season 5 they really upped the ante with access to Basketballs and Golf balls.Golf balls in Fortnite When going through your remotes it’s easy to pull out a ball and get off a shot at any location. Obviously, the best place to get your golf swing on is at the lucky links golf course. YouTuber Yode turns the playground mode into a crazy golf course where wooden walls help create obstacles and ramps for the balls to roll on.

If you look closely while playing golf you could enjoy some statistics along the way. In the bottom left corner of the screen is usually a kill feed. The realistic feed actually comes with a lot of joy each time you make a shot. Because it’ll tell you how far away your shot was, not only can you screenshot your distance for bragging rights, but it easily helps you keep track of your best shots no matter how often you play.

9. Escape From Shore

A few weeks ago there were a ton of headlines about one of the great Fortnite rescue attempts of all time. When YouTuber Muselk discovered chappadoodle abandoned on shore. He attempted to save him using ATK. But things didn’t go exactly as planned as the cart tumbled down and plowed into chappadoodle and instantly killed the character.chappadoodle and muselk The video quickly went viral and Epic Games took notice. To help honor the failed rescue, a large tombstone was resurrected right at the location where trap noodle was killed.

By heading down to the isolated area you can see the tombstone and mourn the hilarious death.Tombstone for chappadoodle Not only did Epic Games add this nice touch but there are a few things they did to help prevent this type of incident from ever happening again. The first fix was giving the players the ability to build up and down the hill as needed. The second fix is the addition of some tires so players can easily hop back up and won’t find themselves stuck on the shore like chappadoodle.chappadoodle tire

There are all kinds of funny incidents happening in Fortnite. And to see Epic Games honor them is what makes the game so great. It feels like a true community.

8. Restoring Dusty Depot

Depending on what season you actually started playing Fortnite. The center of the map was likely called something different, the area originally started out as dusty Depot. It was nothing special just three large warehouses with terrible loot.Restoring Dusty Depot In recent seasons the area changed after a meteor strike destroyed it. Therefore, the location is renamed Dusty Divot. Now in season 5, Dusty Divot has all new look, with much of the area overgrown with trees, and many of the structures removed. While this change is pretty obvious just by looking at the overhead map.Dusty Divot And getting a little closer will help reveal some additional details. If you look closely at the trucks surrounding dusty divot you’ll notice a lot of key items are stored there. For example, one truck features dumpsters porta-potties and construction materials.construction materials

which indicate some great transformation to the Dusty Divot area. A lot of the overgrown trees may get cut down as new buildings are erected. And players should expect to see some major changes when season 6 arrives.

The ever-changing location gives players a lot to do and explore with each new season. The pallets and other items are general tools. So, there’s nothing clear about what they are going to build in the area. Either way, we’ll have to see if the impact of the meteor has any effect on what eventually gets placed in the location.

7. Mourning The Tomato

The rocket launch and presence of the rift created all types of changes on the four-night map. For buildings in tomato town, their business is seriously damaged. One of the more obvious examples of this was the tomato man head statue in Tomato town. The Tomato head was so iconic, that there is even a skin created after it. After the head disappeared, there were clearly people upset with the game’s story. If you travel back to the pizza restaurant and go on the roof there’s a small Easter egg, indicating how iconic the tomato man really was.

Tomato sign on pizza restaurant

Look closely and you’ll see a small sign that says goodbye and features an image of a tomato on it. Obviously between the rocket launch and premiere of season 5 some type of vigil took place at the pizza restaurant. For players like ESmearman, he took mourning the tomato man into his own hands.Mourning the Tomato The YouTuber wore the tomato man skin. Made his way to the top of the restaurant and proceeded to dance in the location where the tomato man used to be. A wonderful way to honor a wonderful man. As players continue to mourn the lost, it’s only a matter of time before we find out where the giant tomato actually ended up.

6. Opening The Drive-in

The large island in Fortnite seems like an amazing place to live. Spend your days shopping on retail row, enjoy a relaxing boat trip on loot lake, or hit the course on lucky links. At night there’s even more to do, especially in the form of a drive-in theater. Risky Reels is an outdoor theater which houses a huge projection screen and brings back a lot of nostalgia for people who enjoyed attending the drive-ins.Risky Reels old version Back in Season 4, Risky Reels was a huge mess, the screen was destroyed the parking lot was a mess, and it looked like the place hadn’t been touched since the 1950s.

Well, like many other locations in season 5, it seems like some restoration has begun. One of the biggest changes you’ll notice are all the cars lining the lot again. Apparently, if you rebuild it they will come.Risky Reels new version The lot is completely full, which is kind of funny considering the screen still isn’t fully repaired. We guess watching a great movie on 75% of a screen is better than no movie at all. For a detailed look at the changes, YouTuber random Chievos went to the Risky Reels and captured all types of footage of the area. At this rate season 6 could be airing full length fictional Fortnite movies or maybe they should just start streaming some in-game player stats.

5. Seeing Underwater

The water areas in Fortnite had a different kind of element and strategy when playing. You can choose to build platforms directly over the water for easier travels, and trudge through the water to make your way around.Trudging through water at fortnite One of the biggest issues when going into the water used to be the lack of visibility. Certain forced camera angles made it impossible to see the water, turning crunching positions into frustrating blind spots.

Loot Lake is the water mass in the game where many players find themselves trapped when they couldn’t see to get out. The dark waters also made it impossible to pick up specific items, when another player dies in the water. Well if you’ve taken a swim at all during season 5, then you would have noticed someone spend a lot of time cleaning up the lake. Not only of the graphics improved dramatically, but the water is completely clear.

You have the ability to change how you play in loot lake and can crunch all you want to avoid enemies spotting. Seeing through the water has multiple advantages for the future of the game as well. We can imagine Epic games adding a special scuba gear add-on, similar to the bush. Players can hide deeper in the water and the game could even include secret underwater tunnels.

4. The Viking sail

Teleportation elements have been infused into Fortnite Season 5. Ever since the epic rocket launch created huge rifts in the sky. These elements of teleportation can be seen from various parts of the map, including the new season 5 Viking village.

As you explore the village located high up in the hills you can’t miss the spectacular sight of the large Viking ship.

Viking ship At first glance, the sail symbol may just look like a Viking inspired llama design. However, If you look closely at the flag design, you’ll notice a lot of legs. This is because the design is based off the Sleipnir an animal featured in Norse mythology. The creature is known as an eight-legged horse and was ridden by Odin. The horse itself could make an epic appearance in Fortnite in a number of different ways. And the design features on the sail are a nice touch to true Viking history. The horse could appear as a statue, similar to the new dinosaur statues. It could also be the first living creature in the game to be ridden, imagine riding into battle on an eight-legged horse. And having the ability to shoot enemies while on top of your steed.

3. Moai Heads

Season 5 has brought the past into the present and another example of this comes from the moai heads now present on the island. Unlike other areas like the dinosaur statue or Viking village, the moai heads are scattered all around the island. The statutes are not just a random decoration for the island, they serve as a great easter egg and have many secrets associated with them.

Moai Heads

One of the biggest secrets is where the moai heads are pointing to. Redditer Duncan games created a map following the direction of every moai head was pointing to. They’re all pointing towards salty springs the location of the biggest rift.Salty springs The direction of the heads only adds to the mystery of their appearance in season 5.

The heads are clearly inspired by the real-life statues found on Easter Island. The statues have been there for thousands of years and are surrounded by a ton of mystery. For gamers, these statues were seen in Super Mario Land from the original Gameboy. The moai heads may look nice in Fortnite, but another secret involves their destruction. Axing the moai heads will help you quickly build upon brick materials early in a match. Get to a Moai Head first and you’ll be treated to one or more treasure chests as well.

2. A True Victory

Whether you’re playing solo, duo, or squads nothing feels better than being the sole survivor and earning a victory royale. No matter how many times you’ve done it the victory never gets old and season 5 only made celebrating even better. Epic Games made a few tweaks to the victory royale declaration and players who discovered them cannot get enough.

The first big change is a slow-motion ending. Just as the final enemy dies the game goes into ultra slow motion, confetti starts to fall, and you see the dramatic ending in all of its glory. Another change to the victory royale is the graphic displayed for a winner. Toss in some new victory music and you have yourself a true celebration, no matter how you get sidetracked exploring the world. The game is ultimately about winning and increasing the fanfare only adds to the fun.

Fortnite player MAMBA XO won 2 early season matches and display their great new victories in squad mode. The new victory can be seen in every mode, even if you’re playing 50 versus 50. So get out there Fortnite fans and earn your victory Royale.

1. Heavy Shotguns

One of the best parts about dropping into a Fortnite battle is seeing what weapons you discover lying around or hidden in a chest. With such a large arsenal to choose from it’s easy to lose track of all the different options. And when it comes to shotguns, there are multiple types to choose from including the heavy shotgun.Shotgun Fortnite In previous seasons of Fortnite, the gun wasn’t the best, especially when compared to the pump shotgun. But Epic Games has included some subtle changes to help with the way the gun is used. In previous seasons the heavy shotgun would only shoot five pellets out. This limited the coverage the shotgun had when it hit enemies.

Epic Games decided to double the pellet output, by including ten pellets instead of five. This subtle change makes a huge difference, especially when other players try to dodge your shots. The range of the heavy shotgun is much improved as well. When the heavy shotgun first got its buff, Epic Games accidentally increased in damage to extreme amounts. And once the glitch was found, Epic Games got rid of it, but the heavy shotgun can still create some heavy damage. If you have room in your inventory, this weapon is definitely worth holding on to and works well in the crowded 50 versus 50.

Now, there you have it, Fortnite Season 5-10 Easter Eggs that you probably missed.

Top 10 Gaming Keyboards of 2018

For all the PC gamers out there we’re going to show you 10 of the best Gaming Keyboards for 2018.

Top 5 Gaming Keyboards under $50

Rosewill RGB Wired Keyboard

Rosewill RGB Wired

It is one of the most basic keyboards from Rosewill. This is their RGB gaming keyboard and it’s simple, stylized, and not bad considering it’s incredibly cheap. We do get most of the features we want from a more high-end gaming keyboard such as RGB lighting and a pretty decent wrist pad.

It is a membrane keyboard and you can change the caps because the keyboard caps are switchable. For the media-savvy, you do get multimedia keys. But with this one, it’s just about comfort and looks, and for something worth 40 bucks, what you’re paying for is basically like a low-end version of a Corsair keyboard. For which you would otherwise spend a lot more money. Therefore, if you’re into over-the-top gaming style, and don’t want to break the bank, I think this Rosewill RGB Wired Keyboard would be the one you want.

Logitech G100 Combo

Logitech G 100 combo

Sometimes you have to look around a bit for the Gaming Keyboards, but this one is usually found for around 50 bucks from some third-party sellers. And what you get here is pretty much a basic keyboard and mouse combo. Thankfully it’s a Logitech product and the build quality is nice and overall it’s pretty reliable.

It’s a no-frills build, it’s very durable, the materials are pretty good, and the response time is under two milliseconds. So it’s still pretty fast and accurate if that’s what you’re looking for. And if you’re into that type of thing it does come with highlighted gaming keys. Because that “WASD” and arrow keys are colored and highlighted, so it’s easy for you to find. We can’t say a lot about this other than that, it’s simple, cheap, and reliable.

Razer Deathstalker Essential

Razer Deathstalker

Now, we have the Razer Deathstalker Essential, this is pretty much razors trimmed down at the most simple keyboard. And with it you are getting a nice build, that’s a little thicker, and you get a wrist pad. But on the other hand, compared to the other keyboards on this list, this one has the lowest profile keys. So, we actually included it for varieties sake, not everybody likes thick chunky keycaps.

As much as those keycaps are considered better for gaming, this is a pretty no-frills build. And especially considering it’s not RGB lit and it doesn’t have too much razer branding besides the wrist rest. This really is low profile and you can essentially use it at work, in an office. And also feel cool and still feel a little bit like a gamer. Not only that it’s cheap, frankly speaking, it’s one of the cheapest razer’s anything you can get. However, thankfully with that, you do get that name-brand behind it. So, since we are covering all the bases and different types of keyboards, the Deathstalker essential definitely earns a spot in this list.

AZIO Levetron L70

AZIO Levetron L70

If you don’t care about name-brand that much we do have the AZIO Levetron L70. This goes back to one of the more low-profile gaming keyboards and it’s got a detachable wrist rest. Besides that, it has a volume adjustment knob on the top right, and those things are pretty useful sometimes. Most people use third-party ones to the side of their desk, but to have that on a keyboard is often pretty cool.

Other than that it’s a pretty standard keyboard the key height is about mid-level. So, if you’re not into low-profile caps and you’re not ready to use those big chunky caps then this might be an easy alternative, considering it’s not too expensive. if you want to just kind of test the waters while not spending too much at all consider that AZIO Levetron L70. Every once in a while out there, there’s a cheap brand that you don’t recognize. But it’s really a diamond in the rough and judging from a bunch of user reviews out there, it’s not that bad.

Corsair K55 RGB

Corsair K55

The Corsair K 55 RGB is another nice keyboard that has onboard multimedia keys and it’s RGB lit. It also has six programmable macro keys, which is useful, and it does have a wrist rest. while it’s a bit chunkier and a little less low profile, it is still of a nice build. And if you’ve used any Corsair stuff in the past you know that they make pretty decent products, regardless of the price.

Therefore, with this one, if you like things simple but at the same time you do want to stick behind a brand the k55 is under fifty bucks, so you should consider it.

Top 5 Gaming Keyboards Over $100

Now, we’re gonna move on to keyboards over $100. So if you’re looking to spend a bit more cash and get that high-quality keyboard action, let’s move forward.

SteelSeries Apex M750 TKL

SteelSeries Apex M750 TKLThis is the same exact thing as the Apex M750, but this is just the TKL version. TKL means tenkeyless because it’s missing the number pad. I know there are some people that absolutely need those numbers, but going TKL saves on desk space and you can leave more room for your mouse as well. And ruin the office uses, a TKL is for that exact reason. Besides that, it has a solid aluminum case that’s built to withstand hours of use and it is surprisingly pretty lightweight. It has SteelSeries’s own QX2 linear Mechanical switches that only require 45 grams of actuation. Which actually gives you really fast reaction times and this board also has some really cool RGB features.

SteelSeries software has discord integrations, so if you’re crazy you can actually get your keyboard to react to certain things on discord. For example, you can have your voice level show up on the F keys, and then have the F Keys turn red when you’re using mute, or even have your keyboard let you know when you have a discord notification. I’m not really into too much RGB stuff like this like when the RGB reacts to having your alt and overwatch or whatever. But still, I just really appreciate this built-in discord integration stuff, it’s just fun.

HyperX Alloy Elite

HyperX Alloy Elite

First of all, it has a very solid steel frame so you can beat around with it and still this thing holds up. And just like every other keyboard of the market right now, it does have RGB. You are allowed to store three different profiles on the onboard memory. So you can change it on the fly by hitting a key instead of having to use software to do so. You are also able to choose what switches the board comes with, you can choose between Cherry MX blues, reds, and browns. Therefore, if you want the more traditional clicky blues you can do that, or go with the quieter and lighter Reds.

It also ships with textured titanium WASD caps. I know some people are just into those big keys being textured, so they’re easier to find on the board. It also comes with non-textured titanium number keys, just one through four. I’ve always been more of a fan of the more low-profile media keys and this board has just that, with a volume wheel that doesn’t take up too much space. You’re just getting a solid quality keyboard that might run you a few dollars, but it does seem like you’re getting what you pay for here.

Logitech G513 Mechanical

Logitech G513 Mechanical

Logitech G513 is a keyboard we really like, because of its simplicity, it’s just a very simple pretty looking keyboard. This board has a really nice aluminum brushed metal finish with the gray-black color looking exceptionally nice. It doesn’t have any extra keys like media controls, you have to handle it through the function keys. If you want to change up the simplicity a bit, it does ship with gaming keycaps that you can swap out to give it a little bit of pop. And it also makes the typing gaming Keys a bit easier to use.

You can also change it up with the built-in RGB. You can either use the built-in profiles or make your own using Logitech’s software. The same software also allows you to apply macro commands to the function keys if you’re a macro kind of person. It also has a comfortable memory foam wrist rest. I can definitely appreciate it, not every keyboard ships with one of these. Besides that, the overall simplicity of the keyboard is what makes a Logitech G513 such an awesome keyboard.

Razer Huntsman Elite

Razer Huntsman Elite

This is one of the more expensive boards on the list at a couple hundred bucks but it does have some cool tech. This is razor’s newest keyboard and this one is pretty different from the rest of the keyboards Razor offer. Because it has razors new optomechanical switches. These switches feel like regular mechanical switches, but instead of actuation working via moving parts, it works via a light so when pressing the key it activates the light, which activates keystroke without any delay. This is really cool and we appreciate it. But for most of us using regular mechanical keyboards, we really aren’t going to notice the difference.

It literally saves milliseconds, but the tech behind it is really cool and no one is denying it. The keys still feel like razor green keys which is pretty much like a cherry MX blue switch. So you’ll have that clacky feel and sound. And it’s also worth knowing that each key has a stabilizer so each keystroke is consistent, no matter where you press on the key. The board also has crazy RGB like every other Heiser product. But this time the wrist rest also has RGB, which is cool. It also has features like media keys and one of them is actually a dial. The dial is programmable via Razer synapse if you can get back to work. so, in that case, you can use it to adjust volume or brightness or something else you can think of.

There is also the Razer Huntsman which is the non-elite version of this keyboard.Razer Huntsman It lacks the multimedia controls, it’s a little cheaper than the Elite version. Both the keyboards are over $100.

Corsair K70 MK.2

Corsair K70 MK.2

This one is a follow-up to the beloved Corsair keyboard. And with this mark 2 version, it seems like Corsair’s approach was like “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.”

But visually they didn’t change much from the last version, but it has a bigger wrist pad. That is just pretty sleek, I’m not gonna lie. It has cherry MX mechanical switches and a basic numeric-pad with slightly tweaked media control buttons. And this one has way better cable routing built-in on the bottom of the keyboard.

For gaming, it is a solid pick that just has stood the test of time. It is quick and it is easy to get used to. And as compared to $200 it still has a premium finish. If you’re generally a fan of Corsair stuff, this is a safe bet, and we don’t think it will disappoint you.

Now, those are ten gaming keyboards we can recommend for 2018. And we hope you liked our list of Top 10 Gaming Keyboards of 2018.

5 Best Gaming Monitors of 2018

We have lots of lists for the best monitors. But for now, we want to tell all of you about some of the best Gaming Monitors money can buy. This list is made according to our choice, it can vary from your own choice. So, here is the list of top 5 Gaming Monitors that have released in 2018.

5.VIEWSONIC VX2758-CMH

VIEWSONIC VX2758-CMH

This one is a bit more on the budget side of things. It comes in under $300, it is a 27-inch curved display providing a 1080p resolution with 144 Hz refresh rate. It also supports AMD’s FreeSync. For a lot of people 1080p at 144 Hz is totally fine and acceptable. Because if your PC isn’t the greatest you aren’t gonna be taking full advantage of this crazy monitor anyway.

The way we look at it, some Gamers want no-frill monitors. So to make this a well-rounded list the ViewSonic makes sense to include in your Gaming PC. No frills mean nothing can go wrong with it, it’s simple it’s dependable and still nice quality. If the other monitors on this list are over your budget, consider checking this one out.

4.SAMSUNG CHG70

SAMSUNG CHG70

For those curved monitor lovers out there, we have the Samsung chg70. This is a VA panel and I know a lot of people refuse to get anything but IPS. So you’re gonna have to make some compromises with this one even though when it comes to monitors “compromise” is the name of the game. It provides a 2560 X 1440 resolution, which I personally think is the resolution sweet spot.

If we talk about the 144Hz refresh rate it can be brought down to 120 Hz and 60 Hz if you need so. It also has a 1 millisecond response time. With that high response time and refresh rate mixed with the HDR and the AMD FreeSync to help prevent screen tearing. You are getting a really solid curved 1440p display. When we look at its design it’s pretty normal there’s nothing special about it. Although it does have a light on the back, it pulses on the wall behind it.

If you are into that kind of thing you may like this monitor. It also has something called eye saver mode. It is designed to cut back on the blue light emissions which helps to reduce eye strain. I don’t know if this is a gimmick or not, but eye strain is a real thing and it’s cool that this monitor has something in place that’s actively working against it.

3.AOC AGON – AG352UCG6

AOC AGON - AG352UCG6

This is a monitor that was released last year. And AOC recently got a new version of it for 2018. The AG352UCG6 Black Edition is still 35 inches with 3440 X 1440 display with a four millisecond response time. However, the changes they made this time is, the refresh rate has been enhanced from a 100 Hz to 120 Hz and it still supports G-Sync.

The stand was silver in color and it has also been changed to black so that the entire monitor looks very smooth and shiny. sadly those are the only changes that AOC has made. There is still no HDR, which is really getting popular in gaming monitors nowadays. Besides that, going from 100 Hz to 120 Hz is great, but you can get 144 Hz and a lot of monitors nowadays. 120 Hz isn’t totally mind-blowing but for someone like me. I think I am totally fine with 120 Hz considering the price plus G-Sync option.

But there are a lot of spec braggarts out there that might not even look at a monitor because it isn’t 120 Hertz. So, while this monitor isn’t perfect by any means doesn’t mean it is a bad monitor. We could use a better refresh rate, but the 21 by 9 aspect ratio could be an issue with certain fps. Seeing that some don’t support that aspect ratio at all. But because of the VA panel the colors popup and that 1440 resolution looks really sharp, making this an ultra-wide monitor worth considering.

2.ACER PREDATOR X27

ACER PREDATOR X27

This is a beast of a monitor with a 27-inch 4k resolution display. It has a 144 Hz refresh rate with a 4 millisecond response time and HDR. These Gaming Monitors also features a predator game view. It lets you dial in the picture a bit more with settings that you wouldn’t find in a normal monitor. For the price, you’d think you’d be able to adjust the monitor however you’d like. But unfortunately, it cannot turn into portrait mode, because it only moves up, down, left, right, and forward.

However, when you see this monitor for the first time, the first thing you’re going to notice is the anti-glare panels. It works to prevent other light sources to create any sort of glare on the display. Besides those panels this design isn’t too loud, there’s a lot of black and metal and a flat design. I’m sure you’ve realized it already that this one also supports G-Sync. I’m a big fan of G-Sync because it makes games run too smooth. This monitor is worth $2,000 so it’s pretty expensive, which means it definitely isn’t for everyone. But I know a lot of people have been waiting for the release of this one since it was announced last year and I hope it lived up to everyone’s expectations.

1.ASUS ROG SWIFT PG27UQ

ASUS ROG SWIFT PG27UQ

This thing is a monster of a monitor. If you want to talk about overkill this thing is over ridiculous than overkill. If we look at the specifications it has a 4k resolution with HDR support, a 27-inch IPS display, which has a 144 Hz refresh rate, with a 4 millisecond response time. So if you’re really into those high frame rates, you’re satisfied here. It also has G-Sync support which means you’ll be getting that high frame per second without screen tearing being an issue.

When we talk about design this thing screams PC gaming. It has the ROG logo on the back of the monitor that will glow whatever color or effect you want. Because it also has two projectors built-in as well so you can project the ROG logo onto your desk and onto the wall like it’s the bat-signal.

ASUS ROG SWIFT PG27UQ-01

This is a little ridiculous but everyone their own preferences. I do appreciate the fact that the arm that holds the monitor does have built-in cable management support. So you can hide all of your cables and the i/o is hidden as well. ASUS ROG SWIFT PG27UQ is worth close to $2,500, so it definitely isn’t for everyone. But this thing is so ridiculous we just had to talk about it

And these are the 5 Best Gaming Monitors of 2018 which were recently released.

11. Destiny 2: Forsaken

Destiny 2 Forsaken

Even though, Destiny 2 is not the most popular game in the world. But, it looks like it’s going the same path of Destiny where the initial game wasn’t all that great. But then the expansion made it so much better. “Forsaken” is the third major expansion and its beginning year of Destiny 2. You can compare it to Destiny taken King expansion. Forsaken will have a large overhaul on gameplay it’ll also have a big story influence and a large portion of the expansion will take place in the reef.

10. ZONE OF THE ENDERS THE 2nd RUNNER: M∀RS

ZONE OF THE ENDERS THE 2nd RUNNER M∀RS

As Kojima is best known from Metal Gear Solid. He also worked on a little Mech Franchises known as ZONE OF THE ENDERS. While not as big of a commercial success as Metal Gear Solid, it did have a very good critical reception. Zone of the enders was a fantastic pair of games and now the second game is coming back on the PlayStation 4. It’ll be running in 4k and if you have PlayStation VR they gave us fully playable through that as well. So that should add another layer to the gameplay experience. ZONE OF THE ENDERS THE 2nd RUNNER: M∀RS hits a PlayStation 4 on September 6.

09. Marvel’s Spider-Man

Marvel's Spider-Man

This is without a doubt the biggest PlayStation 4 game of September. Maybe, the biggest PlayStation 4 a game for the rest of the year. Maybe that’s a little hyperbolic, but it’s Marvel’s Spider-Man. Yes, this is one of the most anticipated games of the year alongside so many great games like God of War and upcoming towns like Red Dead Redemption 2.

But, it’s been up there with the best of them. Insomniac looks for a home run in the world of Spider-Man. And they look to have done a marvelous job, no dought this game looks absolutely incredible. From the attention to detail, the incredible visuals, the robust gameplay. It seems to have everything and the makings for a tremendous Spider-Man game. Which is something we’ve been looking for, for a very long time. There have been good spider-man games, but there has never been that truly excellent Spider-Man game. And with Marvel Spider-Man it could truly be amazing it drops on September 7 Only on PlayStation 4. And it is one of the most important in our 14 Awesome Games list.

Black Ops 4 System Requirements

Treyarch has announced the details of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 PC open beta test. They also revealed the Black Ops 4 System Requirements for the upcoming Game. COD: Black Ops 4 is the first ever Call of Duty title to launch exclusively through Blizzard‘s Battle.net, and it arrives on October 12th. Therefore, if you want to join the fight, COD BL-OPS 4 open beta kicks off today, August 11th.

Black Ops 4 Private beta

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3 GHz or AMD FX-8320 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 660 2GB or Radeon HD 7850 2GB
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: TBA (25GB in COD: Black Ops 4 PC Beta)

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1500X 3.5GHz
  • RAM: 12 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 390
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: TBA (25GB in COD: Black Ops 4 PC Beta)

Besides that, the whole series of Call Of Duty runs on the Infinity Ward Engine. The IW Engine itself is based upon id Tech 3. However, Treyarch hasn’t officially announced the engine for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 yet. In the whole series of Call Of Duty, every developer takes a turn to work upon the Engine with special graphical effects and different capabilities, passing it down to the next game. And we expect the same Engine, Performance, and quality from Black Ops 4 as the Call Of Duty: WWII. Which offers minor advantages over Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s IW 7.0 Next Gen game engine.

In short COD BL-OPS 4 will likely offer very similar performance to Call of Duty: WWII. There is also a bonus for players in BL-OPS 4, i.e an open beta on PC. Therefore, if you are not sure about your PC’s performance, you can always test performance on the Beta.

Open Beta Start time and Platforms

You must get a Black Ops 4 beta code by pre-ordering the game to gain access. If from a store, you will receive a code from the retailer, while digital purchases will grant your account automatic access. On PC, you download the game through BattleNet. You don’t need to pre-order to play the Black Ops 4 beta, though doing so will give you one day of early access.

Open Beta or Private beta for Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 and the platforms it’s available on are mentioned in the image.

Black Ops 4 System Requirements

So we can fairly consider that COD Black Ops 4 is going to be a great looking game. Although it would put a fair amount of load of your RAM and VRAM. We have already read issues regarding COD WWII with 8GB RAM and COD BL-OPS 4 Suggests 8GB minimum RAM, Treyarch are almost assuredly saying that 6GB RAM flat-out won’t run Black Ops 4.

However, the system requirements for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 are nearly similar to Call of Duty: WWII. But if you want to play this game on the 1080p resolution, you are going to need at least Geforce GTX 970 or Radeon R9 390. Because that 2GB VRAM on GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7850 will supposedly only support low-resolution settings. Therefore, if you have the urge to play COD Black Ops 4 on MAX settings, you would probably need GTX 1060 6GB or Radeon RX 580.

Besides that, we should keep it in mind that these system specs and 25 GB of size are only for the beta version of COD BL-OPS 4. It may change at the time of launch, as we can make an assumption after seeing the COD: WWII was a 90GB install at launch.

 

 

Mistakes People Make while Building a Gaming PC

The world of building a PC is fun exciting and sometimes daring. But don’t worry, the best way to learn is from the mistakes of others. We have made this list from personal experiences and reading online complaints from different people. Here are the Mistakes People Make while Building a Gaming PC.

Cabinet for Gaming PC

Cabinet for Gaming PCLet’s talk about mistakes we make while buying a Cabinet for your Gaming PC. Spending money on a giant case when you don’t really need it, it is something that happens often. And it really bothers me, sure you have the freedom to get whatever case you want. And technically there is no problem in having a big cabinet, but just think, you might have spent an extra 150$ on that bigger awesome cabinet. Yet you don’t have the plan to add a water cool system or extra drives.

Instead, you could get a more reasonable sized cabinet and put that extra cash to something more useful. Well, some people will argue that you shouldn’t even spend that much money on a case at all. We see that on a lot of builds threads, Buying for looks doesn’t necessarily mean much. When you could especially be putting it towards more computer power which is the bottom line. Besides that, some people get different cabinets for different needs like size, portability, work, VR, etc. Therefore, it’s really up to you and your needs that cases are where your budget can see the most a band flow.

 

 

Cable Managment

Cable Managment

Well, it is the obvious thing but it needs to be known from the very start of your build. Think long and hard about proper cable management. No one wants their PC to be a mess of tangled wires, do they? It is not only necessary for a good looking and well-arranged PC, but it is also practically necessary.

I personally learned it the hard way during one of my first builds. I had cables everywhere that acted as dust magnets, but when it came time for me to replace or upgrade a component. The mess I had left behind was just a disaster. To replace a component from my PC I had to unplug and rewire the whole set of wires. Besides that, with the help of zip ties, tubes, and well-designed cases there’s a lot of things you can do with your Gaming PC. Start with hiding cables in your Gaming PC build.

Motherboard Installation

Motherboard Installation

I have seen a lot of people making a mistake while installing the motherboard. Don’t mess up the installation of the motherboard’s standoff screws. or even more accurate don’t just skip them altogether or forget them. For the safety of your build, the motherboard needs to be raised off of the surface of your cabinet. And to do that you just typically install the little riser screws from 4 – 12 of them into your cabinet. So you can place the motherboard on top it.

Forgetting them or thinking you can skip them is a rookie mistake. Along with that just install them right make sure they’re compatible with your case, and screw in properly, and make sure they line up with the notches in your board. You don’t want a crooked motherboard that could cause problems down the line.

CPU

CPU

This is the thing a lot of first-time builders really get nervous about. You do get used to it but I still hold my breath while doing it. It’s the placement of the CPU to the motherboard, the whole build. Getting that thing directly on the socket requires one slow straight and not shaky placement downwards. It’s got to be deliberate, do not push hard on it or reshift it after it’s in place. Remember with most CPUs to follow that little corner triangle to show which way you are placing it whether it’s AMD or Intel.

The pins on the CPU are sensitive and you can bend them and screw them up really easily. So just be slow and careful and like I said deliberately on this part some people can fix bent pins after a mistake. But if you’re not a handy experienced person, it might be harder. This might not sound like a big deal to some, but you need to be mindful of all this. Because the CPU is obviously one of the more expensive parts to the build and no one wants to screw it up.

Heat Sink and Liquid Coolers

Heat Sink and Liquid Coolers

We have to recognize heat sinks and how they can get twisted sometimes. Sometimes heatsinks just don’t line up. Because if you have a closed system liquid cooler from Corsair, NZXT, or if you have enough courage to build your own. Then getting a nice and perfectly aligned cooler is easy you just bolt it on the motherboard. Air cooling setups need more attention because you need to bracket it down on the board. And after you apply thermal paste on the CPU it leaves room for it for movement and it shifts slightly while tightening it down and if you’re unlucky enough then, it is just a few degrees off from being perfectly aligned.

Well, I know this may not bother most of the people but it bugs the crap out of me. And I’m sure there are others who feel the same way, who are striving for the perfect Gaming PC build. Therefore, I am trying to make a bigger point here in terms of screwing things down and lining things up. Make sure you do it right. With certain components and attachments if you don’t like the way it looks. You should take your time and redo it. And it necessary to get it right while you go back and redo things. You need to be extra careful, go easy on screws you don’t want to strip them and basically, you just don’t want to rush any aspect of the build. And I think a ‘Twisted heatsink’ is a perfect way to point out that example.

Thermal Paste

Thermal paste

Thermal paste is a necessary part of the PC building process. And we know it can be a source of anxiety for a lot of newcomers. Apply way too little and your PC will just overheat and shut down, or your CPU can burn out. On the other hand, if you apply too much it can ooze out from under the cooler, onto the motherboard. It looks gross and it can potentially cause shorts in the system and just mess up your whole situation.

This can be made more complicated by choosing an unfamiliar compound. A compound that is too liquidy and just gets all over the place and you clamp down your cooler. Or a thicker compound that you aren’t quite sure how well it’ll spread out. It is a small thing that can make things get bad very quickly. And everyone will tell you slightly different things. So it’s a matter of both doing your research and also just being comfortable with the process. I always say the best knowledge you can have going into applying thermal paste and stuff like that is just confidence.

LED

LED

 

This is a matter of taste, but a lot of people feel passionate about this stuff. Be careful with LEDs, choose carefully and do it right so you don’t have a build that looks like a child’s toy. Some people here and there will argue to not bother with LEDs at all. But like I’ve been telling you in this whole list you do what you like. If you want to light it up, go ahead I’m not going to tell you what to do.

But if you are looking for advice, I always think LED fans look awesome. Take the time to understand the ins and outs of your specific cabinet. Hide LED strips or do subtle lighting instead because that stuff can make your case look cool and fancier. But then again this won’t matter much when you’re playing The Witcher 3 on Ultra.

Airflow

Airflow fans

 

Now, we are not gonna get into the trivial details of different types of airflow strategies and pressure systems. But I will say that make sure you know the push-pull configuration of your fans and install them properly the first time. Besides that, there are a few things worse than installing your fans backward. Keeping all that hot air inside the cabinet and overheating all your components. So read the back of the box and plug all the cables in the right place. Also, make sure that fans are installed in the right direction.

And while we’re on the subject of component temperatures check your temperatures after you finish your build. And make sure everything is on optimal temperature. It’s best to know if you need more fans or to reapply thermal paste at the start. Rather than when you are in the middle of a gaming binge weeks later and things get too hot. It could still happen but we just see a lot of people make these mistake of not actually giving their Gaming PC a proper checkup once it’s built.

Connecting Power cables

Connecting Power cables

 

This sounds obvious but if you’ve done it, you probably get it. It’s “not pushing” your power cables all the way in Properly. I know you just spent a lot of money on all the components for your new Gaming PC. Therefore. you are trying to be gentle and not break anything. After all, electronics tend to be a bit fragile a lot of times. The process of building a Gaming PC isn’t really a place for those sentiments though. You got to make sure everything is pushed into place until it clicks in securely. And power cables are no exception and a lot of people are missing the landing on that one.

These things require a lot of pressure sometimes so don’t get nervous. Sometimes it can feel like you’re about to bend or break the motherboard. But not securing such important connections will just lead to a headache down the line. This also goes for power connections on hard drives and video cards as well. However, the main power cable is the hardest one. You have to make sure all that stuff is in there until it usually clicks. This is one of the main issues when a new builder fires up their Gaming PC for the first time and it doesn’t start. Check your connections, maybe you were playing it too safe, just keep it in mind.

 

Shopping for Gaming PC

Shopping for Gaming PC

One of the biggest mistakes that first-time PC builders can make is when it comes to shopping. It is not uncommon to try and get the most for your money. When you’re shopping for parts compromising on brands and tiers of products is a fact of life for PC builders. However, you need to know when and where to do it. A lot of people spend way too much money on more low-impact parts and then skimp on something like the CPU or the graphics card.

If you’re building a high-end PC, consider spending more than $40.00 on a power supply. It really is “you get what you pay for” type of situation for some of the components. A cabinet is a cabinet, in hard drives, some of the manufacturers are more or less on par with each other for most people’s gaming needs. And give it a thought do you really need that $700 rog rampage 6 extreme motherboard?

Are you going to use all of the capabilities offered to you by it? Or would you be better served with a more reasonable motherboard and upgrading that core i5 to an i7 and adding some life to your rig with a little more computing power.

Ultimately, it’s your money to spend how you see fit. But maybe you should spend a bit more on the important parts that will be more noticeable in your day to day PC usage. I said about LEDs, I said about the size of a cabinet. The aspect of buying the right parts and all the shopping is the biggest hurdle to get over as a first time PC builder. So make sure you take your time and do it Right.

Cryptocurrency Mining Through Steam

Cryptocurrency Mining Through Steam sounds a bit fishy, so let me tell to the whole story. There was a game that was on Steam marketplace that cost money, it’s called Abstractism.

This game advertises a stylish design and a relaxing atmosphere. If you bought it and played this little abstract platformer style game. The game itself would actually install cryptocurrency mining software on your computer without you knowing.

steam

According to reports, Users who buy and install this game said their system recognizes it as a Trojan Virus. They also uploaded screenshots as a proof. Somehow, a YouTuber SidAlpha was led to believe that this virus was mining cryptocurrency because he noticed high stress on his PC. The game also encourages playstyles that have gamers keeping the game open for long periods of time. It would fall in line with reports of the game mining cryptocurrencies on the backend. Which is just insane, shitty, and really ballsy, especially considering they are charging for the game.

Besides that, in-app items in Abstractism are sold on Steam under the guise of rare virtual items for Team Fortress 2.

Therefore, players spend real money on them without realizing that they are effectively worthless. But I think it’s really unbelievable that this is where the world is going and it’s definitely a shame. Because it’s preying on people who essentially don’t know too much about computers. Maybe they’re into PC gaming but they don’t know how to actually properly monitor their Hardware. I would like to think people will be playing a really simple game. And notice their computers fans are going crazy and think, hmm what’s going on here. This is also a great example of the types of problems Steam could run into as they continue to open their platform to more titles.

 

Capcom planning more reboots

Capcom has gone on record stating that they are looking forward at more remakes and reboots. As you may know, some people want more new original games. Capcom did express this in an earnings call stating that it might be a good idea for them to leverage their long-standing library of properties that already exist. And boost earnings of course by making these reboots and remakes.

Resident Evil 2

What seemingly might be the deciding factor especially in terms of the actual remaking of classic games is Resident-Evil 2. The remake of Resident Evil 2 is scheduled for worldwide release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on January 25, 2019. I think this is both good news and bad news for a lot of gamers out there. Those who want new original IP, they’re sick of HD remasters and stuff like that. But on the other side ‘me personally’, I like full remakes like this.

Resident Evil 2 remake has me excited beyond belief because I love the old game. I want to experience it again, and maybe see a little bit of a fresh perspective on it. And I love stuff like that. Also, I know this is Capcom in general but after this news everyone’s mind jumps to Resident Evil three. Who knows we already have a remake a complete of Resident Evil 1 we’re getting one for Resident Evil 2, expecting Resident Evil 3’s remake makes sense. But that’s just really for me I just want to see the Nemesis from Resident Evil in 4k. What would you guys expect? especially from a company like Capcom. What do you want to see from them? new IP that could possibly be shitty or really great, or just remakes and remasters of their old really good games from their heyday.

Cyberpunk 2077 All We Know

we have some new information about cyberpunk 2077. Thanks to some, interview some developers have done. Just a little bit here and there, pulled from the interviews do make for some new interesting information. Most notably they have once again doubled down on their decision to make this a first-person game. Saying specifically, it’s an “RPG first shooter second”.

Cyberpunk 2077 cover art

I know some people are still just not into the first person’s perspective, I get it. But that should assure you at least from what I’ve seen of the game at E3. I can confirm that this game definitely seems like an RPG first and foremost. Thanks to cyberpunk 2077 Twitter we do have a little bit of info on stats and attributes. Apparently, we can increase the stats and attributes by leveling up and installing body cyberware. And, we can raise skills by performing certain actions like, hacking, or crafting, or using short or long guns. Besides that, there are also perks that are unlocked, both with the street cred stat and XP.

Cyberpunk 2077 Available Languages

Along with that we also have confirmation of all the different languages in the game of both the actual languages supported and the subtitles. Not only that, but we also have new perspectives from some of the writers with some interesting stuff in terms of how they are approaching the enemies and the gangs in the game and how they don’t want them to come off like comic book villains.

cyberpunk

They are going to have real motivations in this society and they used for an example the cyber gang taking on a massive amount of cybernetics not just because they’re like crazy insane villains but because they have actual motivations in the game world. They also did acknowledge that the game is going to be an acknowledged political subject because the cyberpunk world is inherently political.

We also hope that they reveal the actual system requirements for the eager PC gamers. And Gamepike will be there to inform you.
