PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fornite are the leaders on the battle royale block, selling millions of copies and in-app transactions. Games studios and publishers are rushing to make clones. But the granddaddy of them all, H1Z1, just left its Early Access stage and has officially released. H1Z1 used to be king of this hill. It started out as a survival game (riffing off the likes of DayZ), and with the help of a modder named … Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene, it became the first standalone battle royale game. But it fell behind to PUBG, which stormed the gaming scene last spring, and then to Fortnite: Battle Royale, which offers a friendlier experience with building structures in a last-player-standing game. H1Z1 is going to market with a new mode, focusing on vehicles. Cars and trucks have always been important to Daybreak’s game, so the designers added Auto Royale, a vehicle-only mode. The studio’s savvy enough … [Read more...] about PC Gaming Weekly: H1Z1 tries to stand out of the battle royale crowd

Today we are investigating two commonly asked questions about gaming laptops: what’s the performance like on battery and how long do these laptops last in games? We'll also explore if battery life can be extended in any way; and do less powerful systems last longer? We have some great apples-to-apples data for you, so it should be interesting to learn and have this as a bit of an FAQ for gaming laptop buyers. The reason we say apples-to-apples is that we have the rare opportunity of testing two essentially identical systems where only the discrete GPU is different. This will let us test how the GPU difference impacts battery life and playability when you are not plugged in to the wall. Our test bed consists of two Acer Predator Triton 700 systems, both have typical laptop hardware like a Core i7-7700HQ CPU, a 1080p display, and 512GB SSDs. One machine has a GeForce GTX 1060 6GB, while the other has a GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q. Both use the same cooler and largely the same other … [Read more...] about Use Your Gaming Laptop and Play On Battery Power? Is It Possible?

Nokia is certainly not the first manufacturer to announce a set of exclusive apps on a platform, and it most definitely won't be the last one, but it could very well be the most damaging example we've seen yet. Most manufacturers will say that exclusive apps are a way to differentiate devices in the market, and we all know that Windows Phone manufacturers are looking for as many ways to differentiate as possible. As yet, Microsoft is not allowing any type of skinning or UI differentiation, so built-in apps are the only option right now. Samsung's Windows Phone devices have a proprietary photo editor, as well as other apps. HTC's Windows Phone devices have the HTC Hub (weather, news stocks), HTC Watch (video streaming), and probably the best of all is the Attentive Phone app, which allows nice options like muting when the phone is flipped, quieting the ringer when the phone is moved, or making the ringer louder if it's in a bag or pocket. These are all small additions that make the … [Read more...] about Nokia’s exclusive apps put into question Microsoft’s Windows Phone philosophy

They are timed exclusives meaning they will be available to everyone at some point. I feel like this article is over-sensationalizing this entire exclusive app issue. posted on 08 May 2012, 21:09 9 5. MichaelHeller (Posts: 2721; Member since: 26 May 2011) Given the market situation of Windows Phone a one year exclusive is a much bigger deal than a timed-exclusive on an established system like Android. WP is in a very tenuous situation where no one is happy. posted on 09 May 2012, 02:09 2 28. azafirster (Posts: 44; Member since: 01 May 2012) Yeah I agree, try having a peek at their customer feedback website at main WP site, the number of complaints are increasing, the categories of problem are swelling, no updates as yet.
