    ASUS FX503VM-E4039T Gaming Laptop Review and Alternatives

    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.

    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).

    Travel Journal: Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture

    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…

    Tomb Raider 2018 Movie VS 2013 Game

    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.

    Life Is Strange: The Chaos Theory

    “For every action there is a reaction.” Did you ever wonder what would happen if you could rewind the time and change a specific event to your advantage? How would you feel if you could go back and remake a school test you previously failed, say the right thing to that person you accidentally hurt?

    Nvidia Ansel: First impressions

    Nvidia Ansel is now available with the latest driver update, thus I want to write down my first impressions about its features and available effects. If you own a Playstation 4 you certainly know about the Photomode plugin implemented in some installments (Infamous Second Son, Mad Max, The Last Of Us Remastered, etc). On PC, as mentioned a few times in my previous articles, we can only get unofficial tools to play around with camera, field of view and additional visual effects, in order to get professional screenshots similar to the ones released by video game companies to promote their new product.
