I’m sure you have seen this topic over and over again pretty much everywhere in the past month or so, but it’s probably one of the most important and serious matters ever discussed online. Article 13 is going to affect not only creators from Europe, but basically the entire world if it gets approved the way it is. Please keep reading if you want to know more and take part in our movement to stop this madness from happening before it gets too late.
Today I want to talk about a product that might be of interest for you: the ASUS FX503VM-E4039T gaming laptop. I’ve been a PC gamer for quite some time now and I always preferred desktop computers for their durability and better hardware in general. However, I recently decided to save money for a good laptop in order to have a second machine for my work (better being safe than sorry, right?) and I went for something that I could also use to play new generation games.
There are different models of this series though, plus other gaming laptops that may differ in price and specs. Here’s my honest review for the E4039T and a list of alternatives you can check for a wider choice!
Love Brings You Home is one of the many Otome titles written by Voltage Inc and currently available on the Love 365 app, which is constantly updating with new series and routes even adding old standalone games into it. Taiyo Inami is one of the characters in the series and I managed to take a look at his main story in the past few days being available for free (it expired, so if you want to read it you have to purchase it).
1984, Shropshire (England), Yaughton Valley. Something mysterious happened… something that you as the player need to find out while exploring the now deserted towns. The inhabitants have literally vanished, disappeared without leaving a single trace behind. Your only clue is a bunch of floating orbs of light, swimming in the air and guiding you through the valley’s untold story. Telephones and radios still holding registered reports, pieces of the tale you need to reconstruct to solve the puzzle. This is what Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is about, an Indie title developed by The Chinese Room and SIE Santa Monica Studio, released for PS4 in 2015 and PC the following year.
Note: Travel Journal is a new series I’m introducing and its purpose is to highlight all those games that allow you to walk around freely and let you enjoy the environments without any sort of UI element, map or marker for a more realistic experience.
Epic acrobatic battles, magic, adrenaline, mystery… many of you may still remember the incredible Dead Fantasy series, CG product created from scratch by the talented artist Monty Oum and certainly one of the best fanmade animations of all times. His Final Fantasy/Kingdom Hearts and Dead or Alive crossover still remains in our memories, while Monty sadly is no longer among us due to a physical complication which took him away from this world at a very young age.
Today I bring you something different from my usual gaming posts. If you happen to be already interested in Japanese/Korean comics and cartoons (originally called manga/manhwa and anime), Otome games could represent a good company for your tiring and lonely days. Mystic Messenger is by far one of the most played adventures of this kind, so get comfy, grab a drink and some tissues on the way, because you’re going to undertake quite a long and deep ride!
Final Fantasy XV has finally arrived on Windows in its final state, along with an additional pack for console users (Royal Edition) containing a completely remade Chapter 14 and a few special additions along the playthrough. What PC gamers were fearing before the final release was a poor optimization with mediocre performance despite the time they took to polish it, but owning the game myself and running it on a 3yo system I can say Square Enix did exactly what we were promised in the beginning: they allowed older computers to handle it better than any other port from console, although they had to release a new patch afterwards in order to fix incompatibilities with AMD Phenom processors.
A bunch of general problematics still stand today in most cases, however, but no other update has been posted since March.
The new Tomb Raider movie with Alicia Vikander as lead character, inspired by the video game series released in 2013 by Square Enix and developed by Crystal Dynamics, is officially available in our theatres since March 15th. Many are the feedbacks related to this live action and although the majority of comments posted were not exactly reassuring, I usually try to think with my own head and see things for myself before expressing any sort of judgement.
Is it good? Is it bad? Is it worth it? In this article I will compare a few scenes from the movie and the game itself, thus I highly suggest you to not proceed with the reading if you still intend to watch it (unless you don’t mind getting spoiled).
Happy (belated) 2018 everyone! I owe you an apology for the lack of updates in December, sadly real life got in the middle between the Holidays and personal commitments. However, yesterday morning I woke up with a bunch of incredible news regarding the Windows Edition of Final Fantasy XV, such as the awaited release date, official requirements and general informations. I thought that would be quite a nice way to start a new year on the blog, especially considering I’ve been fairly obsessed with this RPG for quite some time now! 😀
The well awaited Black Friday is right around the corner and the majority of stores is already offering tons of pre-event discounts. If you were planning to get some new titles to play during your Christmas break, computer parts or even a brand new laptop/PC, this might be your chance to find the best gaming deals for a good price.
