Its a bang for your bucks, why? A 15.6-inch Full-HD gaming notebooks have been available for a couple of years, but they haven’t been exactly affordable. Having an Acer Predator or Dell Alienware notebook with Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU will cost you around SGD $2500 or more, which is steep compared to what a regular notebook cost these days. While the MX-15 is only SGD $1142 even with a 15.6-inch Full-HD IPS Matte Display, 7th Gen Quad Core i7-7700 3.6GHz processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU with 6GB GDR5 RAM, 8GB of DDR4 RAM plus 120GB SSD with 1TB HDD. There’s also a generous number of ports including 1x USB 2.0, 2x USB 3.0 (Type A) and 1x USB 3.0 (Type C). There’s also a single HDMI and two mini Display ports so you can connect to up to three external monitors!

With the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU having 6GB GDR5 RAM and the 7th Gen Quad Core i7-7700 3.6GHz processor, it allows high and maximum frames per second running lots of games smoothly though with best graphics. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU can run games like counter strike global offensive max graphics at around 160 frames per second which is ideal for gamers. The 7th Gen Quad Core i7-7700 3.6GHz processor also helps out with maximizing the graphics processing unit.

Even though the MX-15 is cheap, it contains most gaming laptop functions, for example, its keyboard. The keyboard has RGB backlights which you can set to up to highlight your hotkeys and controls in different colours.

In my opinion, MX-15 is a must for people who wants cheap but awesome gaming laptop, its really great compared to some overpriced gaming laptops which cost around SGD $2600 with worse performance.

Injustice 2

Injustice 2 is NetherRealm Studios’ game for 2017. Being a game depicting one of the many alternate universes under DC Comics, the series itself also has a comic series showing and explaining everything that happened within this alternate timeline. You can read them up HERE or watch someone explain it HERE.

The game is the successor to Injustice : Gods Among Us, released in 2013. As a sequel, the game itself has many improvements of the first game, most notably: a faster movement speed for characters, environmental intractables that can be blocked, moves to evade or end combos early. As a Netherrealm Studios (NRS) game, the gameplay itself is refined for a fighting game, with similar aspect to Mortal Kombat’s ‘juggling’ combat style where repeated attacks to the opponent in whilst in the air will initiate a combo.

Similar to Mortal Kombat, the game features a somewhat long campaign mode for you to play. Unlike other modern NRS games, this game allows different paths to choose from, with 2 different endings. Borrowing the idea of Living Towers from Mortal Kombat X, Injustice 2 has a similar system that goes all out on what you can do. The Multiverse has different ‘Earths’ one can choose to play. They are limited time only and a new one will pop up once one of the ‘Earths’ expires. But don’t worry, they will reappear sometime soon.

The biggest change would be the fact that there is a gear system. It allows players to fine tune their favourite fighters to gain an edge over AI fighters in the Multiverse. This also affects public multiplayer matches, where fine tuned fighters with a mix of competent players will make them extremely deadly. Different special moves are also added to add flavor and different combos for different players. Said new special moves are disabled in the competitive playlists for the sake a balancing.

The game includes 39 playable fighters, 10 of which are DLCs. Certain fighters have premium skins which changes them to another version of the same fighter. For example, for the Flash, his premier skin allows you to play as the Reverse Flash.

For the base game alone, most prices ranges between 55SGD to 90SGD. The other versions will cost more, some at around 120SGD and the most pricey one at 145SGD. If you are a DC fan or a fighting game fan, this game is no doubt a very good choice.

Lenovo Yoga 920

The Lenovo Yoga 920 keeps everything i liked about its predecessor, the 910, and fixes almost everything i didn’t. A world-class performance, standout style and immersive entertainment, the Lenovo Yoga 920 is in a league of its own. Sleeker than ever and packed with speed and power to streamline your day: long-range voice-activated support, a nearly edgeless 4K display( 2160p) a resolution of 3840 pixels × 2160 lines, an optional digital pen featuring pinpoint accuracy, and more. Stand apart.

Image result for Lenovo Yoga 920

The Lenovo Yoga 920 adds in Intel’s latest eighth-generation Core i-series processors that do deliver better performance while keeping its battery life good and long. Priced at SGD$2100, in my opinion it can be lesser and cheaper to be more affordable. But Lenovo Yoga 920 features can actually make up for that. Lenovo Yoga 920 is also slim and able to fit into most laptop bag and being easy to bring around. Its design is also a great feature. Being attractive and slick, it can make most people “wow!” on the laptop.

From the super slim bezels around its display to the sturdy all-metal chassis to its unique watchband 360-degree hinge, the 920 looks and feels like a premium laptop. At 1.4 kg, it’s a little heavy but far from a burden and forgivable considering you’re getting a 13.9-inch screen in the same space as a typical 13.3-inch laptop. Plus at half an inch thick (12.7 mm), it easily slips into most laptop bag.

The precision touch pad stays just about perfect. Fingers glide easily over its smooth surface, and you would never experienced any cursor jumps caused by a brush from your palm. There are multi touch gestures that are easily adjusted within Windows’ settings, so you can turn off controls like pinch-to-zoom or three-finger swipes if you want. A fingerprint reader to the right of the touch pad lets you sign in quickly with Windows Hello, which makes your login smooth and fast.

Overall i think Lenovo Yoga 920 is a great laptop and worth your money.

Standoff 2

The legendary “Standoff” is back in the form of a dynamic first-person shooter!
New maps, new types of weapons, new game modes are waiting for you in this incredible action game, where terrorists and special forces going to engage the battle not for life, but to death. This game, made with the same developers as “Standoff”, and the game “Standoff 2” is a mobile version of Counter Strike Global Offensive, a well loved multiplayer first-person shooter video game developed by Hidden Path Entertainment and Valve Corporation. Standoff 2 is about  two teams against each other: the Terrorists and the Counter-Terrorists. Both sides are tasked with eliminating the other while also completing separate objectives, the Terrorists, depending on the game mode, must plant the bomb, while the Counter-Terrorists must either prevent the bomb from being planted, defuse the bomb. Defuse is a fast paced game mode with only 1 minute 30 seconds per round for terrorist to get to bomb sites or counter terrorist to defend the bomb sites, prevent bomb to be planted or defuse the bomb. If either of the teams eliminate the other, the eliminated team loses while the one alive would win the round. $800 will be given to each player at the first round and the currency will increase on whether you win or lose, you will need to use the currency to purchase guns.

Deathmatch is another game mode in Standoff 2 where you get any game you want and there are still 2 teams of counter terrorist and terrorist but this time you get to go wherever and kill the opponent. You will respawn every time you die. There is a timer of 10 minutes, with 1 kill points will be added to the scoreboard. By the end of 10 minutes, points will be compared between the players, top 3 players will be shown as “winners”. With stunning frames of more than 60 fps(frames per second), its runs with a sexy and smooth graphics.

Image result for Standoff 2

With a control setting containing shooting/crouching/jumping/scoping layout settings like changing the x and y sensitivity and where the shoot button will be and sound, graphics settings that allows you to get comfortable with the game. Being a fast-paced fps, it test your reflexes and tactical skill. Example of knowing when to peek enemies, rotate to other bomb sites, faking plants/defuse with the bomb to bait out enemies and even prefiring the spots that are commonly used. All this requires game sense, or even Intelligence quotient to predict movements of enemy and counter them. 

Image result for Standoff 2

Overall  i would say that Standoff 2 is a really good game to try out, it is not pay to win and can relax minds. Killing opponents might help you to relieve stress, being a fast pace game helps out with some of your boredom.

Rules of Survival

Rules of Survival is a battle royale type of game in which you are sent into a world with other players. You all are driven by an aeroplane and the player must decide where to alight anywhere on the map. Once you eject the plane, you freefall down then until halfway you parachute down. When you eject down there is a joystick for you to control the speed of how fast you want to drop to the ground. Once you reach the ground, you are without weapons, you have to go houses and other places to find guns and equipments. (i.e. Ak-47, 2x Scopes, med kit, helmet, backpack etc.)

And there will be a restricted zone where you can go only. Once you exceed the safe zone, the screen will turn green , signalling that you have exceeded the zone and chipping away at your life points constantly.As more and more people gets killed, the safe zone will also shrink, eventually forcing the remaining survivors to meet each other and kill each other.The last man standing wins the match. As you win a match, you earn points and your rank goes up.

You can play with your friends as there are different kind of game modes. You can play with your friends by inviting him. To prevent your account from being lost and to allow your account to be transferred to another phone, I suggest you bind your account via Facebook, google play accounts or game center. Those who wants to get accessories to mod your character, you can do so by choosing what you want and pay via app store or google play. You can also earn credits to buy accessories by playing matches.

Overall, I think Rules of Survival is a pretty interesting game that tests your skills and luck. I think people who love survival games should try this game.

Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy

Probably the most frustrating game I have came across, Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy uses a simple concept of flinging yourself up using a tool and made it a extremely addictive (and frustrating) game to play.

The game uses different surfaces to make each “stage” more difficult. By that I mean from climbing normal rocks at the start to ascending icy mountains. Bennett Foddy design the game in such a way that when you fall from a section you are most likely to end up not too far behind. However if you are to fall down again, you will end up even further back. Therefore it is essential that you be alert when you fall not to fall again and lose more progress. Aside from flinging yourself up to ascend further. You can place the hammer under you and push yourself up. Be careful of how you position yourself as your character’s lower half is replace with a cauldron so you can slide off the surface in a matter of seconds.

The experience of the game can be both satisfying and annoying at times. Imagine reaching the last level of a game and losing your progress in one wrong move, repeatedly. The satisfaction comes when you finally get over every obstacle that you may come across. Bennett Foddy created the different “stages” by making a way in which will be hard to fall even further back so it works like a checkpoint. The game used the simple concept of flinging yourself up with a hammer and made the game challenging by testing you on how well can you put that concept into action and be flexible about it. Once you reach the top, you will be shown the credits and a short note from Bennett Foddy himself. After that there will be a secret reward.

The game is developed by Bennett Foddy. The game was released as part of the October 2017 Humble Monthly, on October 6, 2017 where it was played by over 2.7 million players. A Steam version of the game was later released by him on December 6, 2017. The game was also released on iOS that same day.

Temple Run

Temple run is a endless running game.First released in 2011, this game was very popular and attracted many people to download it. Updated versions of this game appeared several years later.They were temple run 2 and temple run 3. There are several characters which you will have to unlock which have special abilities. When you start the game, there will be a few creatures chasing you.If you run without hitting any obstacles in front of you, you will be able to shake them away. There are different obstacles which you will have to jump, slide under, turn left or right to avoid them. As you run , you collect coins. There are 3 kinds of coins. Red, gold, blue. Red coins are worth 2 gold coins while gold coins are worth 1 coin and blue coins are worth 3 gold coins.

Coins can be accumulated to buy power ups or unlock new characters. Swiping up allows you to jump, swiping down allows you to slide under ,swiping left and right allows you to turn to your left and right respectively. Coins can be earned faster through in-app purchases using real money. This game was first released to iOS. then followed by Android, then Windows Phone 8.

I think this game is generally fun. But to make this game easier , the game should have a limit and not be endless.This game should be introduced in more platforms such as computer. But, this game must be updated frequently so that it will not be outdated and get replaced by new games.

Growtopia

Growtopia

Image result for growtopia

Its a multiplayer sandbox platformer with crafting, building, punching and socializing. There are no goals, just an infinite number of worlds where you create whatever you want with all your friends. Farming in Growtopia are the most interesting thing to do! Farm by planting and breaking them after they can be harvested. Examples of farmables are: Fish tanks, Pin balls and of course Chandeliers! Farming is one of the most easiest to profit in world locks(a item where you use it as a currency in game, able to do lots of things!)

Image result for growtopia

Can’t get farmables? There is a simple way of earning them! Enter a world by any name you want to and all you need to do is start punching dirt, cave background and lava.

Slowly progress through this game with all those and even start getting your own built world! Easy once you got 2 to 3 world locks where you can buy lots of farmables, gain more by farming and getting more world locks

Disadvantages:

People in game might sometimes be rude and swear, but there is a solve! Growtopia has a settings where it blurs out the rude words and makes rude players speak gibberish. Another bad thing is that new players will get laughed and scammed easily, game knowledge is needed to know pricing of items that the new players might get. New players can solve this problem by going to worlds with correct pricing of items and find out how much their items cost. Competitiveness is also another problem, it makes players angry if they could not sell an item .

Advantages:

Growtopia is a game that makes time pass very fast and is a very fun for players who likes excitement and competitiveness. Socializing in game can help you with your own language and Emotional Intelligence(E.Q)

Anyways, i feel that growtopia is a good game to spend your time on. With its wide variety of items and things you can do, you will never be bored!
