Acer Predator Triton 500 Review

By tracy
The Acer Predator Triton 500 is everything I want in a gaming laptop. It checks all the boxes, and then it checks boxes in those boxes, like zooming in on a fractal of dope gaming laptop credentials.It’s “cool” but subtle enough for a coffee shop. It’s got significant horsepower but doesn’t bog it down with pointless software. It’s capable of on-the-go gaming (power supply recommended) but can power through nearly four hours of work on a single charge. Perhaps the most seductive feature of all is the display – a 15.6-inch IPS screen that’s capable of a 300hz refresh rate. That’s a display fluid enough to warrant a “silky smooth” cliche.

Wolfenstein, Dishonored & Prey Collections Seemingly Coming to Xbox Series X and S

By tracy

Next-gen collections of Bethesda’s Wolfenstein, Dishonored and Prey games seem to be headed to the Xbox Series X and S, according to new ESRB ratings.

You can check out the ESRB page for Dishonored & Prey The Arkane Collection here, as well as the Wolfenstein Alt History Collection. ‘Xbox Series’ is listed as the only platform for both ratings, suggesting they could be exclusive to Microsoft consoles following Microsoft’s acquisition of ZeniMax Media – which owns both Arkane and Wolfenstein studio MachineGames.

The Dishonored & Prey The Arkane Collection rating mentions four games, which are most likely Dishonored, Dishonored 2, Dishonored: Death of the Outsider and Prey. The Wolfenstein Alt History Collection blurb also mentions four games, which are most likely Wolfenstein: The New Order, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Wolfenstein: Youngblood. Given that the Xbox Series hasn’t announced any VR support just yet, it’s reasonable to assume Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot has been skipped.

The Wolfenstein collection mentions in-game purchases, but don’t be alarmed, it’s almost certainly referring to the existing microtransactions in the co-op game Wolfenstein: Youngblood, which allow players to purchase cosmetic skins.

These next-gen collections would make a lot of …

FIFA 21 Review – Still Kicking

By tracy

For newcomers to the FIFA series, sprinting down the pitch and converting tight through-passes or high-arching lobs into game-winning scores is invigorating. Crowds go wild, the camera shakes to match the roaring intensity, and Paulo Dybala performs a backflip as his teammates whoop in excitement. Moments like this are fun and exhilarating, and you don’t need to follow the long-running series’ year-to-year adjustments to appreciate them – though seasoned veterans may be disappointed by the minor strides forward.

Instead of implementing revolutionary changes, EA Vancouver uses FIFA 21 as an opportunity to refine moment-to-moment gameplay. Keeping the ball feels intuitive, especially when you fake out aggressive defenders with skill moves like the bridge dribble or ball roll fake turn. Moreover, setting up fluid passes between multiple players with the flick of the right stick makes movement approachable for gamers of all skill levels. As a whole, the gameplay feels streamlined and entertaining – but the package is about more than the on-pitch action.

FIFA 21’s atmosphere and presentation are stellar. I always enjoyed seeing jerseys crease and crinkle at slight movements, or watching players flex their muscles after driving the ball into the opponent’s net. The animations are smooth and
