Console Exclusive Games We Want to See on PC

Let me start first that this is not an opportunity for console games in general, and if there is an example in the article, it was not intentional. The only thing we’ll be focusing on is a great, exclusive game title with great gameplay, story, or other combinations of gameplay mechanics that have graced console platforms. This article also won’t talk about glorifying PC specs. It’s about a love of games. Some of the titles here are well known, and to be fair, none of the games have any hardware limitations that prevent them from adapting to the PC. So, let’s take a look at some of the more popular game titles on consoles that we’d love to see fit for a PC version. All of these titles are well-known titles if you have been in the gaming business.

God of War

There’s no denying it. It is a well-known fact today that God of War has transcended its original genre that was generally thought to be pretty mindless as it involves hack and slash as well as quick time gameplay. Sure, that genre was popular in its time, but as the gaming community grew more immersed in the medium, we need more than blood and gore to drive us forward. And then God of War turned the table on everyone and the reception of the final release has been celebrated, even to this day. God of War focuses on the storytelling aspect but instead of a man hungry for revenge, the lens is changed to the journey of a father and son. Make no mistake, the fighting mechanics have improved tremendously. To highlight how good this game was, we are confident that this single game has guaranteed the success of the PlayStation 4 platform. Every punch is heavy, every battle cry feels primal and the boss battles reach a new level of satisfaction. Bringing this title to PC will definitely see an increase in sales despite being released in 2018. Not even time can dull the enjoyment of a well-made game. If you’re curious how this game became the new benchmark for game quality, grab your PSN Gift Cards and get a copy of the game available on PSN today. Experience the greatness yourself.

Last of Us

The common denominator on why we want to see the games mentioned on this list is because of the amazing story that they let gamers to be a part of. The Last of Us has definitely put itself in the top tier of zombie apocalypse-themed games. From tender moments in the midst of chaos to emotional scarring decisions, the Last of Us makes you feel something. We feel the pain, the anger, and the determination of the characters in the game as they traverse the new terrain of a dystopian world. Last of Us not only brings a strong story, but it also showcases great character development along the way. The characters feel real, in the sense that they are grounded enough to make them relatable to anyone playing it to a certain degree. The game also features a more realistic approach when it comes to combat. The stealthier approach is preferred in the game when going against zombies and human foes alike. Although the second installment has brought much ire in the community regarding how the characters and story were handled, it is an amazing and immersive experience that everyone should try at least once.

Ghost of Tsushima

Over the years, we’ve seen how Japanese history and culture is adapted into various forms, and one of its famous cultural reference that is known worldwide would be its ancient warriors, the samurai. Ghost of Tsushima focuses on ancient samurais. Unlike a lot of other games revolving around samurais, Ghost of Tsushima has managed to keep it as close as it gets to a real samurai. There are definitely supernatural elements added into the game and there might not be historically accurate, but the vibe that’s created from the game is nothing seen before. It has since seen a massive following from Japan, citing as one of the best games that represented the samurai culture. Some would categorize Ghost of Tsushima as a Japanese version of Red Dead Redemption 2. The game also emphasizes the different mechanics of combat. 2 main combat approaches are available to players, either brute force or silent takedowns and tactics.

Marvel’s Spider-Man

So, we have an ex Greek god, a samurai/ninja, and hardy zombie apocalypse survivors. What we’re missing from this list now is a superhero. And boy does the PC console needs a dire injection of superhero content. Marvel’s Spider-Man is a great game that has everyone’s jaws on the floor with the leap of gameplay since the last game. Spider-Man has always had an interesting game mechanic to it, which is swinging around the map via tall buildings. That was the one feature that I felt really stuck with me as I played the older titles. And now, with the advancement of game technology, not only you could that with absolute style, there are various additional mechanics added to it such as acceleration, different postures and even attacking mid-swing. Another great title that

Halo 5

Halo has always been associated with Xbox, and if I were to describe the adventures of Master Chief in the Halo series with one word, I would use the word, EPIC. No doubt that the game has been an epic masterpiece from the day it came to Xbox and although there were a couple of shaky titles along the way, no one can deny the chills they get when they hear the memorable game score played in the background. Although we’re seeing some of the older titles getting a release on Steam for PC gamers (finally!), PC gamers would definitely want to be a part of the newer Halo experiences. Halo features mostly on FPS gameplay, and some third-person vehicle combat. There’s nothing much to talk about the game as it is something you need to experience yourself. From its grand setting of a space battle to different fronts, Halo promises unique experiences as you fight your way into hordes of alien units. It’s safe to say that Halo 5 is definitely on top of every PC gamer’s FPS list.

In a nutshell, every gamer would love the opportunity to play all games no matter what platform they’re on. Sure, there are some limitations when it comes to certain genres, such as RTS, but overall, it’s not an impossible idea to have games adapted to different platforms. We’re seeing more cross-play options made available, as well as limited exclusive titles that get a release to different consoles. Here’s hoping that this would be the new norm for future gaming. What game title you would like to see getting adopted to a PC release? Let us know in the comments.

How to choose a golf trolley?

How to choose a golf trolley?

Golf trolleys have evolved from a specialized device utilized by older players to a norm across golfers of all ages worldwide. This is due to the numerous advantages of owning a modern-day golf trolley — they also have the ability to reduce your scoring. When you assume that an average golf bag weights 10kg, carrying it consumes around 30% more energy than an electric trolley. This loss of power might impair your attention, resulting in substandard performance on the last few holes when you are beginning to feel the stress. Lifting your bag, or even utilizing a drawn cart, increases your risk of back, shoulder, and knee ailments, as well as physical imbalances.

The following are the tips to choose a golf trolley:

Try out some technologically advanced golf trollies:

The technology and functions integrated into current carts are truly mind-boggling. If you desire the finest, go with an electrical trolley with a lithium battery, which is lightweight and incredibly robust. Technologically advanced golf trollies are the solution to all of the typical golf trolley problems. Modern electric carts can now display GPS ranges on the handle’s display, and also some gauge shots, display phone updates, measurements of the hole, and include a USB charging connector.

Foldable golf trollies to manage space for them in your car:

The car boot room is at a limit for several golfers, especially when considering you need to squeeze in your equipment and other goods at the same time when traveling to the course. But do not worry because many trolleys fold-down exceptionally compactly in just a few simple moves to fit in even the smallest of areas. Push trolleys tend to slide down shorter than electric trolleys because they do not need to include a battery. However, some electrical trolleys can roll down just as compact as most push trolleys.

Push trollies are best for flat courses:

Push trolleys are ideal for gentler courses since they are usually easier to operate when you do not have to push them up and down steep hills. They will place a lot less strain on your body than lugging during your trip, particularly if you have a lot of supplies packed in your backpack. The rollers on current push trolley wheels are exceptionally smooth, so you will be astonished at how effortless they are to operate. Push trolleys also offer amenities that electric trolleys do not, including a ball, tee, scoreboard holders, variable handle height, and a foot stopper.

Choose electrical trollies if you are going to use them at a hilly course:

If you frequently play courses with rocky slopes, you should consider purchasing an electric trolley to alleviate the stress on the body. Some electric motors also include a gas pedal, which allows you to firmly park your trolley on a hillside, enabling you to hit your next shot without fear of the trolley rolling away into a pond.  The most innovative hybrid trolleys also have a mechanism that guarantees the trolley moves at the pace of your choice while descending the sharpest of hills.

A Guide to The Burning Crusade’s Mounts in WoW Classic

A Guide to The Burning Crusade’s Mounts in WoW Classic

World of Warcraft Classic has been slow on the uptake as of yet. With the Shadowlands expansion going underway in Vanilla WoW, there has been a slight decrease of players on the Classic servers. This is mostly due to the game not receiving any note-worthy updates as of late. Some players have even gone so far as to say that WoW Classic is dying even if those claims are far from the truth. Thanks to the Burning Crusade, however, players have starting to trickle back into the game to delve into the all-new expansion for Classic. Not only are there more ways now to earn WoW Classic gold, but a plethora of items that were not available otherwise are now part of the game. This includes new weapons, consumables, and different varieties of WoW Classic bags that players can use to store different types of items such as ammo. One of the things that Blizzard has put a focus on in the Burning Crusade is without a doubt the mounts. About 17 mounts are now added to the selection for players to choose from, each of them excelling in certain situations. Players can take their pick from the Epic mounts that are suited for either PvP or PvE battles, depending on which they prioritize. Let’s get to know more about these mounts, shall we?

The Addition of Flying Mounts

Flying Mounts have been heavily requested by the players to be added into World of Warcraft Classic and to everyone’s surprise, Blizzard listened. Flying Mounts has now been brought over! Many people have taken for granted this feature nowadays thanks to it being accessible in Vanilla WoW, but in a game like Classic where a lot of the changes and updates from that game is nowhere to be found, players take whatever they can get when it comes to quality-of-life changes. To be able to obtain the Flying Mount skill, players must visit their respective trainers accordingly. These places are the Hellfire Peninsula and/or Shadowmoon Valley. For those that are of the Horde, they will have to talk to Dama Wildmane. For players that are part of the Alliance, on the other hand, must contact Brunn Flamebeard. Now here comes the hard part: players must spend their hard-earned WoW Classic gold to be able to unlock the other skills such as riding skill. If they want to be able to unlock Expert Riding which gives them a 60% increase in epic flying speed, then they will have to cough up 800 gold. Not a bad price considering that this is the lowest tier. There’s also Artisan Riding which significantly boosts a player’s flying speed to 280%, but that would cost them 5,000 gold to unlock. Players can also unlock the highest tier which gives them 310% flying speed, but they’ll have to have either the Gladiator Mount or Ashes of A’lar first, both of which are difficult to acquire.

Race-Exclusive Mounts

Thanks to The Burning Crusade, players get to see two new races surface–namely, the Draenei and the Blood Elves. Every race has certain mounts that are only available to them, so players that have Blood Elf or Draenei characters can expect that they get to have a unique mount for their race. For the Blood Elves, they’ll get to have the Hawkstrider mounts which are available in many different variants. Meanwhile, the Draenei race gets to have exclusivity over the Elekks, which from a visual standpoint, looks like a hybrid of an elephant and a mammoth due to having immensely large tusks and even horns.

Whether one is from the Alliance of the Horde, they get to have some mounts that are only available to them as well! Vendor Mounts are typically one of the first mounts that players will own during their playthrough since they’re the easiest to get. For the Horde players, they’ll be able to get Windrider mounts. For the Alliance players, they’ll have the Gryphons instead. Both types of mounts are available for purchase at 100 gold (for the Rare type) and 200 Gold (for the Epic type).

In Conclusion

The wide array of mounts for The Burning Crusade can be intimidating at first for those who are looking to purchase their mount for the first time but rest assured that whichever mount that they manage to pick, all of them are great choices. Most mounts are differentiated on whether a player is from the Alliance of the Horde, so they don’t have to worry about which ones to get for the most part, mainly because the game is going to make that decision for them. Just be sure to have enough WoW Classic gold stored up inside WoW Classic bags though, because learning the even ride Flying Mounts take up a lot of in-game money. What do you think about the mounts that were added in solely for The Burning Crusade? Share your thoughts about this topic down below.
