CS:GO Arms Deal Update (Quick View)

So here's a quick view about the Cs:Go arms deal update if you still don't know.




Apparently Valve has started liking the money from Steam Community Market too much as well and has decided to give a new surprise to Cs:Go fans, with a trading system (much like TF2 and Dota2) in the game.

Basically you will get item drops (guns or knives) while playing or by opening the weapon cases with a key. These items will be in tradable form and can also be sold on the community market. That's why I said Valve likes money from market as well, because 15% (roughly) on every market transaction goes to Valve. That is the reason Valve has been able to sustain FTP games like TF2 and Dota2 !

The update also added the silenced M4A1 and USP after getting a high demand from fans...

While this is praised by mostly all the players, the silenced M4A1 and USP are still not what they expected. M4A1 only gets 20 bullets per magazine (which is very less, if you know about CS).

There has also been the introduction of new features and weapons like Stattrak. These types of weapons counts all the kills you make and this number can be viewed on the weapon itself.

The game will soon get it's own Steam Workshop as well, which is pretty obvious since it has got trading now. What it basically means is that players will be able to upload their own weapon finishes and custom knife models, and popular Up-voted finished may appear in future Cs:Go updates.

Saints Row IV Facts

With SR4 being released today, we have decided to put some light on the game and give you some of the best Saints Row IV Facts !

Saint Row


As the name suggests (or maybe just because if you have been living under a rock for the past few years), this is the fourth game in Saints Row franchise, after getting grand success to Saints Row : The Third.

The system requirements for the game are:

    Minimum:

        OS: Windows Vista (x86 or x64)
        Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 | AMD Athlon II x3
        Memory: 4 GB RAM
        Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 260 | AMD Radeon HD 5800 series
        DirectX: Version 10
        Hard Drive: 10 GB available space

    Recommended:

        Processor: Intel i3 2100T | AMD Phenom II x4 or higher
        Memory: 4 GB RAM
        Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 560 | AMD Radeon HD 6800 series or higher
        DirectX: Version 11
        Hard Drive: 10 GB available space


Saints Row was first released on August 29, 2006 and has come a far way from then and hoped by many to go even further....

Saints Row IV was officially unveiled in March 2013. Its release trailer states a North American release on August 20, 2013 and a worldwide release shortly after on August 23. The game is a direct sequel to Saints Row: The Third, with the plot taking place 5 years after the last game.

On July 5, 2012 In an interview with Game Reactor Saint Row IV's design director, Scott Phillips discussed the future of the franchise after Saints Row IV.
"We're definitely considering Saints Row IV sort of the end of that saga of this character and the Saints as they are. So if there's any more future Saints Rows - which you know we always hope there will be, we hope there's fans for future games like that - they will probably continue in a different direction."



To date, the series has roughly sold over 9.8 million units !! Majority of these were of SR3 which got an unexpected popularity and is claimed to be better than all the GTA titles of its time. SR4 is also expected to follow the same path of popularity with many pre-orders already being sold. Saints Row IV and GTA 5 are the most awaited titles for third person gameplay this year and who wins the battle and critic's choice is yet to be decided. 
But we suggest you to go out and grab a copy each of both games as one thing's for sure, that they are going to be damn awesome !!


Now how about those facts we promised you, huh ?
Well, here are the top Saints Row IV facts you should know about before buying it :

1. The Game was earlier positioned as Saints Row: The Third - Enter The Dominatrix




Saints Row 4 was originally supposed to be released as another game - Saints Row: The Third - Enter The Dominatrix. This title was announced by its creators in 2012 as a standalone game which won't require you to have played/own SR3. 

This is the official THQ's former president's reaction to the third game and his announcement of the next sequel:

On June 20, 2012, Rubin stated that the Saints Row: The Third standalone expansion, Enter The Dominatrix, had been cancelled and instead would be merged with "The Next Great Sequel in the Saints Row Franchise", allowing the team "more time, more resources, and a broader scope for the project". He also confirmed the game was scheduled for a calendar 2013 release window. 

2. It may be the Final Game in the Franchise.




The rumors are that this thay may just be the end of a classic and mind-rocking franchise established by the games that came before it. In an interview with GameReactor.com conducted by design director Scott Philips, he asked about the hurdles and possibility of another title in the saga.

In the future, building on this level of silliness may prove too much even for Volition. We're definitely considering Saints Row IV sort of the end of that saga of this character and the Saints as they are. So if there's any more future Saints Row's – which you know we always hope there will be, we hope there's fans for future games like that – they will probably continue in a different direction. 

3. The Game may still be Banned from Australia




 SR4's cross behavior and extreme violence didn't suit too well with the classification board in Australia.

As of June 25, 2013, despite an introduced R18+ rating for video games, Saints Row IV has been refused classification in Australia. In the Classification Board's opinion, Saints Row IV includes "interactive, visual depictions of implied sexual violence which are not justified by context". The board also states that the game includes "elements of illicit or proscribed drug use related to incentives or rewards". Such depictions are prohibited under the guidelines.
 Although Deep Silver is once again trying to get the game approved and reach a masser audience.


4. The Game has got Three Special Editions (with a              twist)


Three special editions of the game are available for pre-order with some special packed content for hardcore Saints Row lovers : 

1) Commander in Chief Edition





  • 'Merica Weapon
  • Uncle Sam Suit 
  • Screaming Eagle Jet



2) The Super Dangerous Wub-Wub Edition



  • All the items from the Commander in Chief Edition
  • 12-inch Dub Step Gun Replica
  • 8-inch Johnny Gat Memorial Statue 
  • Pocket-Sized Dubstep Doomsday Button

3) Emperor Zinnyak's Game of the Generation Edition

  • All the items from the Commander in Chief Edition
  • All the items from the Super Dangerous Wub-Wub Edition
  • Light-up Rotating Display Case with individually numbered plaque
  • Top Shelf Protective Pouch for Display Case

And here's the surprising twist -

The game has a fourth ridiculous special edition which may or may not be real. But I am adding this 'cause I have seen this at a number of places. This is the most expensive special edition of any game ever conceived and there exists only ONE copy of this in the entire universe. I don't know why but if even there are any mad-for-saints-row fans with a million dollars to waste, then this is for you.


4. The Super Dangerous Wad Wad Edition aka The Million Dollar Pack




  • Saints Row IV : Commander in Chief Edition
  • A full sized replica Dubstep Gun 
  • A full day of spy training 
  • A trip to space with Virgin Galactic 
  • One year’s membership of E25 Super Car Club and a Lamborghini Gallardo to make it worthwhile 
  • Plastic Surgery of the purchaser’s choice 
  • A shopping spree with a personal shopper to create the ultimate Planet Saints capsule wardrobe 
  • 7 nights for two at The Jefferson Hotel in Washington 
  • Hostage rescue experience 
  • - A brand new Toyota Prius and insurance to give something back to the environment 
  • - 7 nights stay in the Top Royal Suite at the Burj-al-arab with flights for two

PS4 vs Xbox One

Today We are going to discuss about the awesome consoles which were recently released :). PS4 And Xbox One are the consoles released by Sony And Microsoft respectively.. Both Consoles were very much anticipated and this topic was discussed by most of the gaming communities ,Surely because Gaming is just not BORING ! :D.

So lets begin with the Console War ! :D




1. Looks


Well Both look Sleek, Sweet and Stunningly Awesome ! Both are better in design than their preceding consoles.


Both are Black in color which just looks flawless on both the consoles.
PS4 is shaped like an eraser while Xbox One is simple and classy, Looks doesn't matter much to gamers, But Yes, they increase the sales as Newbies buy the one which looks better.


Let's move on to the next section !

2. Hardware


Xbox One in comparison, It Has a 8-core AMD Jaguar CPU , A GPU which has around the same level performance of Radeon 7790 , 8 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD , A HDMI Port , USB 3.0 with Gigabit Ethernet. If we go in detail with the specs , It has a 8-core 64-bit x86 AMD Jaguar CPU @1.6ghz with a GPU offering 68GB/sec bandwitch between CPU and RAM , 102GB/sec of bandwitch to 32MB SRAM cache and 30GB/sec to the Gamepad, Kinect and other utilities.Rumours tell that it has some specs upgrades by now including 53mhz boost in GPU from 800mhz to 853mhz.(According to the leaks).


PS4 has identical configuration , A 8-core AMD Jaguar CPU (same as Xbone), GPU around the same performance level of 7870 which is around 40 % better than 7790, 8 GB GDDR5 which is far far better than Xbox One's DDR3 RAM , It is twice in terms of performance, 500GB HDD.

Both have the same type of APU Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) But Performance wise PS4 is way ahead of XBox One with a RAM which is just twice in performance comparing to XBox One's RAM And with A Bigger GPU which is 40-50 % faster ;).



But PS4 lacks a HDMI port ,So yeah XBox One has more connectivity options As Microsoft said It is a Media Center while PS4 is not a Media Center.



3. Pricing


We are Indians :P and especially am Gujarati :P , I worry about Money and try to save every bit of it,So It matters to me ;)

XBox One costs 499 $ which is equivalent to 30,000 rs while PS4 costs 399 $ which is equivalent to 24,500 rs. 

A 100 $ less price tag with better performance of PS4 ?

XBox which has lesser performance than PS4 still comes with an extra 100$.

By the way , Playstation Eye didn't  come up with PS4 which is similar to Kinect.
 Which costs around 55 $. Why Sony didn't put PS eye at default package while MS did ?
But with a extra 100 $.

So Both did some mistakes in pricing and packages though.

4. Facts and Lies about Xbox One


I would actually like to give some support to Xbox One as it was humiliated by the Social Networking Sites.

Lets Begin with the "listening" thing. Rumors tell that Kinect listens everything even if its turned off .
Duh, Thats total stupidity while a device is off how can it listen to you ? Okay if it did what it happen with you ? FBI will come at your house and arrest you ? 

Logic Guys Logic , These blind-folded Playstation fans have just made a image set that KINECT WILL LISTEN EVERYTHING. Am Not Supporting XBox One in any way am telling you that lie is a lie you can't change it So, Support the truth.

Yes , I agree that XBox needs to check Internet Connection every 24-hour or it cannot be used. MS ,think about this,In Countries like India Internet is just not stable it can go off anytime for whatever time :P


5.Conclusion


PS4 is gaming till it's every byte while XBox One is a Media Center. PS4 is for Hardcore Gamers and XBox One is for Casual Gamers.But If you just want something for Gaming Purpose I recommend you to buy PS4 Because it has performance and costs Less Or You want a All-in-one Media Center in which you can spend your time and entertain yourself You should buy XBox One

Thank you for reading this article , I hope you liked it. Please Share your Views and Opinions by commenting on this Post  :D . We Love to see people comment :)

Temple Run 2


https://lh5.ggpht.com/Xf73WCavWDIHR5qnqnS6tyJGDyarKgtZX-QqynUURC_fmrdTSseJ478_WVtfK9tRQaJq=h310Temple Run 2 is one of the most famous android game. With more than 170 million downloads it is one the most downloaded app at the Google play store. It is the successor of the highly successful game Temple Run which too had 100 million downloads.

Temple Run 2 is a running game in which you are an explorer who steals the cursed idol from the temple. You have to avoid hitting the obstacles and try not getting caught by the monkey which is behind you. It is a never ending run. You have to unlock achievements and levels to complete the game.

With nice graphics and gameplay Temple Run 2 is a game which every android device should have.

Angry Birds


Hardly there would be any person who has not heard the name of Angry Birds. Angry Birds is one the most successful game all over the world regardless of any platform or device. This game has attracted 100 million+ users in the Google play app store alone. The game is regarded as the most successful handheld games.

We can also see Angry Birds movie, Angry Birds T-Shirts and Goodies, Angry Birds cases etc. After such commercial success many different forms of Angry Birds have been released which are Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Season, Angry Birds Space and Angry Birds Star Wars.

The gameplay of Angry Birds is very simple. Pigs have stolen your eggs and you have to throw yourself out in order to break out the greedy pig's defenses.

Fruit Ninja


Fruit Ninja is again one of the most download app from the Play Store. It is a cut and throw game which will surely blow your mind. Fruit Ninja is a game in which you have to slash fruits and avoid cutting the bombs.

With download between 100 million - 500 million this game can be seen in most of the android devices pre-installed.  Fruit Ninja features three action-packed gameplay modes - Classic, Zen and the amazing Arcade mode. As you move on you will get rewards like different backgrounds, different swords etc.

The attractive graphics and SFX will make you addicted to this game. What I see as a con in this is that it ruins your screen when you play the game madly. Nevertheless this game is really awesome and it should be installed in your device.

Talking Tom Cat 2


Talking Tom just like Angry Bird is a famous app worldwide. Well categorizing Talking Tom as a game is quite controversial but we will still add it as we think it is one the app you definitely should have.

After the success of Talking Tom Cat its developers Outfit 7 made a hell of apps like that and one such is Talking Tom Cat 2. In this app a cat namely Tom will repeat whatever you say in a funny accent. It also does some actions on touching its body or the options gives. Basically this app is good for timepass when you are bored.

You can customize the appearance of the cat, record voices and upload them to your favorite social networking site. The graphics of this app is good and its worth downloading.

Subway Surfers


https://lh4.ggpht.com/RJ3zlLZOWXfTpZ-537lS9BE6N-6Bmzt_HeAYj6IPXIHJA2e4pcxgEoQd9SBIKkzCajWt=h310Subway Surfer is another running game just like Temple Run 2 which is mentioned above. The difference is in the characters, location and objective. The gameplay is almost the same. Here you spray something on the trains and the officer inspite of the monkey tries to catch you. Here too obstacles are there in the form of signals, route closers and trains.

Its fun to play Subway Surfer as you can also go above the trains and you have powerups like jetpacks. There are many different characters and hoverboard too in some stages of the game. You have to complete missions in order to increase the multiplier.

The game runs smoothly in all devices unlike Temple Run 2 which runs roughly in low end devices with low processors. With 50 million+ installations it is one the most addictive game in the Google Play Store.



Here we come to the end of the list. I would recommend all the new android users to surely install these games and make your android device a lot more playful.
