Observer and Alan Wake: American Nightmare can use the Epic Games store for free

The Epic Games store targets Watcher and Alan Wake: the American nightmare that will take over Survival Tuesday this week.

Those who released Alan Wake in August can now enjoy more, though Alan Wake: American Nightmare is not a sequel, a short spin-off set in the same universe. In addition to a story mode, the game also offers an arcade mode in which the player takes on multiple waves of enemies. It was met by critics and players alike and was the best-selling arcade game on Xbox Live in its launch week. This is how the Epic Games Store title describes it:

In this new standalone experience, Alan Wake battles the Herald of Darkness, Mr. Scratch’s evil! An exciting new story, countless creepy enemies, serious firepower and beautiful locations in Arizona, combined with a fun and challenging new game, make Alan Wake a veteran and the perfect cheat for new players!

 

The observatory is like psychological horror, with a fictional background and an investigative game. It is developed by the Bloober Team, who previously worked on Layers of Fear and is due to be released next week, and most recently by Blair Witch. It received a positive response from the players and critics. This is how the Epic Games Store title describes it:

You are Dan Lazarski, an elite nervous Defendantknown as the Observer and you are part of a company-funded police unit whose goal is to hack and infiltrate suspects. In this future, whatever you believe, feel or remember can be used in court against you.

Epic Games Store offers Observer for Windows and macOS and Alan Wake: American Nightmare for Windows for free.

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.
