There were dark times for sci-fi racing games after Sony shut down developer Wipeout Studio Liverpool in 2012. As Nintendo let F-Zero languish, high-speed anti-grav racers became one of those “don’t do them like before”. for a few years, until indie games like Redout and BallisticNG started to fill the void. There are a bunch of those games now, but almost all of them take after Wipeout more than F-Zero.

Then there’s Aero GPX, which looks like F-Zero like heeeeell.

A rather cute little life simulation released this week: Potion Permit (opens in a new tab), which features you as the town’s newest chemist, responsible for treating illnesses among the citizens of the remote village of Moonbury. Your job is to diagnose diseases, gather ingredients, and then turn them into cures while making friends among the townspeople and settling into local life.

You see, locals distrust modern medicine and technology, preferring to rely on traditional methods. When they call on the Medical Association for help, they send you, their star student, to serve as a chemist and convince the locals of the effectiveness of modern alchemy in curing ailments.

HP Omen 16 Intel review: A no-frills gaming machine https://vietcong-game.net/hp-omen-16-intel-review-a-no-frills-gaming-machine/ Fri, 23 Sep 2022 05:07:20 +0000 https://vietcong-game.net/hp-omen-16-intel-review-a-no-frills-gaming-machine/ The HP Omen 16 offers a solid mid-range gaming laptop with an Intel Core i7-12700H CPU and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPU.

The HP Omen 16 offers a solid mid-range gaming laptop with an Intel Core i7-12700H CPU and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPU. But should gamers invest in it? Find out in our review.

HP is having a good year when it comes to laptops. Their latest launches this year, such as the HP Pavilion Plus and the HP Specter x360 2022 edition have received positive feedback. Even the first HP Omen laptop of the year, the HP Omen 16 AMD Edition, got a great review from us (which you should check out if you’re not an Intel fan). However, a positive lineup so far also means that expectations are high and the pressure is on for the HP Omen 16 Intel Edition to deliver.

Since this is a gaming laptop, first looks can often be deceiving and that’s certainly the case with the HP Omen 16. The look out of the box is pretty generic which, although that consistent with all Omen laptops of the past, does not inspire confidence. It lacked the flair of ASUS ROG, MSI, or Acer Nitro laptops. But nonetheless, I was cautiously optimistic.

It’s when you take a look at the specs that you’re really intrigued by this gaming machine. This isn’t a high-end gaming laptop. But for a mid-range option, it has some impressive features. It comes with the 12th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPU, 1920 x 1080 display with 144Hz refresh rate, and a big 83Wh battery. And all this at the price of Rs. 149,999. It’s a bargain, at least on paper.

As we always say, real life experience is what matters most. And with that, I dove into the Omen 16 and this is what I found out after using it for about two weeks. Let’s move on to the brass thumbtacks.

HP Omen 16 Design

The laptop has a minimalist design on top. It has a soft plastic construction with a reflective gradient Omen logo in the center. The laptop only comes in one matte black color and it lacks any design, engraving or fancy LED lights on the top. Although I’m not a big fan of it, the minimalist design has its own appeal.

Opening the lid presents a spacious platform with a full keyboard that lights up in the RGB color scheme. It was a welcome inclusion as many other laptops in this price range don’t offer the same. The screen is supported by two hinges that keep it almost in the air. While it does look good, the screen tends to wobble a bit, which can be slightly annoying. The sides have thin bezels but the chin is quite prominent, but that doesn’t really impact the experience due to the large screen size.

Coming to ports, there is no shortage of them. Being a gaming laptop, it offers more ports than you will possibly need. It has three USB Type-A ports, a Thunderbolt USB Type-C port, a MiniDisplayPort 1.4, an HDMI 2.1 port, an RJ-45 LAN port, an SD memory card reader and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Interestingly, Legion 5i, which is priced in the same range, does not come with an SD card slot, which can be a significant requirement for those who use it for creative work.

HP Omen 16 Display

Gaining about 0.5 inches from its predecessor, the HP Omen 16 now measures 16.1 inches and comes with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and a refresh rate of 144 Hz. It is a IPS screen but with 300 nits of brightness it is very vibrant and the colors look vibrant. Whether you’re gaming or just watching videos, you’re sure to appreciate the finer details. Viewing angles are quite good due to the anti-glare effect and even wider angles provide a crisp viewing experience.

HP Omen 16 performance

Now, this is the part that intrigued me the most. The HP Omen 16 features an Intel Core i7-12700H processor, which is fine for a mid-range gaming laptop. I’ve largely spent my time playing Spider-Man Remastered, Saints Row 2022, and Valorant and performance has never been an issue. And part of the reason is the accompanying GPU. The laptop is equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 GPU with 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM and offers quite a smooth browsing experience.

However, be aware of graphics card and processor limitations. These aren’t high-end specs and if you decide to play Crysis Remastered or Cyberpunk 2077, you’ll need to run them on low to medium settings, especially if you don’t want frame dropouts. I was able to play Spider-Man on medium graphics, but playing it on the highest settings at 1080p slowed framerates a bit and the game felt sluggish. Likewise, playing Valorant at 1920×1080 made it difficult to achieve a consistent 60 FPS. But again, unless leaf and house shadows mean a lot to you, the medium settings won’t affect your overall experience significantly.

For everyday use, HP Omen 16 was a joy to use. It comes with Windows 11 out of the box and everything from productivity tasks to general use is a smooth affair. Since my job involves a lot of typing, I have to put it back to the keyboard. The keys are spacious and large, the travel is substantial, and the feedback makes working a lot of fun.

A minor issue I faced was that the arrow keys felt tiny and stuck compared to all the other keys. It was annoying even during gameplay, especially since I prefer arrows to WASD. Even after two full weeks, I couldn’t get used to it.

The trackpad was large, supported multi-touch, and had a palm rejection feature, which meant there was no chance of accidentally touching should I put my hand on the trackpad.

Finally, the HP Omen 16’s Bang & Olufsen speakers were decent. The audio quality wasn’t out of this world but it did its job. I would still recommend investing in a nice pair of headphones while gaming as the sound isn’t very loud. It works great for watching casual YouTube or social media videos.

HP Omen 16 Battery Life

It might be a little strange to say that the best part of a gaming laptop is its battery performance, but for HP Omen 16 it still holds true. The laptop is backed by an 83 Wh Li-ion battery and it lasts quite a long time. During my regular office work, which included opening multiple tabs on Google Chrome, watching YouTube videos (very rarely), and switching between multiple apps, battery life lasted between 7, 5 a.m. and 9 a.m. This may vary depending on your usage.

During continuous play, I could get up to 3-4 hours of playtime on the device, which is above average. The laptop comes with a 230W AC adapter that takes it from 0 to 100 in just over 2.5 hours.

HP Omen 16 Verdict

When it comes to performance and battery life, it is difficult to pinpoint any flaw in the device. The HP Omen 16 is a no-frills gaming unit and it doesn’t pretend to be anything else. Yes, I had some minor issues with its design, the arrow key placement, the small gap between the lid and the bridge in the middle, and the lack of a probably higher quality display (2K would be really nice), but It’s important to recognize that this is not a general-purpose laptop, but a gaming device.

And HP has placed all the right components to make it a very efficient gaming machine. If you’re someone who loves gaming but isn’t super competitive and doesn’t mind the looks of the laptop, then this one will give you plenty to be happy about. The laptop costs more than Rs. 1 lakh, but that is because Intel machines are more expensive due to higher performance efficiency and better driver support. So if you can afford it and like the performance, go for it.

However, if you value the look and brightness of your device, you have a few options. The Acer Nitro 5, ROG Strix G17, and MSI Gaming Katana GF66 are a few options to play with.

theme song

  • Title: GO A YA WAY!
  • Writer: TOHAMHAT-KYO (WATCH TYPE).
  • Composer: CHECK TYPE.
  • Off: Dys-yeya (FAX).
  • A GUITAR: Johngarabushi

Clap!

The music unit consists of Ham Hat Madness (pictured: right), MC and DYES IWASAKI (pictured: left), TrackMaker.

This year, the song Utakata Lullaby became a topic of conversation in the movie One Piece Film Red.

Chogakusei

A handsome singer, born in 2001, only 21 years old.

It has received over 250 million views on YouTube! Her beautiful face peeks through a Venetian mask and her ganarali voice, which seems to contradict her face, is that of a singer talking about the city.

Game preview

Buster: Master multiple weapons and carry fixed souls to the goal.

Three players are Busters. Lasers, gunshots and flamethrowers are your weapons to defend yourself against enemies.

The Busters triumph with a fixed amount of Sulfates going on goal. Defeat and respawn enemies that appear throughout the stage and raise their souls.

A stranger of enemies attacks the Busters. Shoot them down before they shoot you down.

It is better for the monsters to fight against each other. That’s the key to victory: working together and coordinating your moves with your teammates.

If you die, you could continue the game as a child.

The buster enters the phantom force when his life reaches zero. Ghosts cannot attack, but they are not attacked by monsters. If you have a Buster near you, you can move, transport, and leave with your souls as usual.

Can you carry souls by yourself?

Monster: Send these little Busters flying with your extravagant skills!

A person is a monk. Attack an enemy until they die using a special weapon. Use a skill unique to the monster to fight the Busters.

The monster takes the Busters, or the time limit of the match.

Predation can be interrupted by other busters. Do your best to keep it away from the fire. It is important to keep children out of bags.

Monsters have unique abilities. Maybe a hidden buster in the walls can be crushed with the building?

Repeat matches and collect hundred pounds of coins and other gold items to sell your wares and products.

Weapons and costumes can be obtained using Soul Coins, an in-game currency that is awarded based on performance in a game. Weapons have different strengths and characteristics. Costumes, on the other hand, are not tied to performance. Collect as much money as you can and have fun coordinating them freely.

You can dress your character in three places: head, body, and face. The mix includes super cute to a little quirky.

What you would appear to look like depends on the current item selection and its meanings. Have fun trying on different outfits.

Among the different types of guns, you can find an easy-to-use weapon.

You have unique abilities to distinguish yourself from other players.

Improve your character’s performance with a “hello” performance.

A character can be adapted to play in Enhancement Gear. Increased attack power can benefit from equipping this gear.

Enhancement Gear is available for purchase and for additional enhancement Soul Gems which can be obtained through performance during matches.

You can even jump so high!

Find out their coins and their enemies using coins.

A number of Soul-Peaks and Soul-Gews, which require customization, can be obtained from Episode Match. Take a look at the storyline that unfolds from one cycle to a regular stage, while battling against players.

Up to four players can play in an episode match. Invite your friends to play together. Up to two people can play an online match on a single console.

There are many different locations for each stage. More locations will be added in future updates.

Character introductions

An incredible cast of well-known voice actors from many successful media titles can voice the characters created by Terada Tera. You can voiceover the game, but you can also voiceover the menu and the system. Stay tuned for even more voices in the future.

Octo

A reserved 10-year-old baby.

Cat lovers like to be so popular. When it comes to cats, it’s all the rage.

He was attracted by Goonyan’s feline appearance and decided to fight.

Snail

This girl is three years old. She lives independently.

His moral compass is slightly off, with no hesitation when it comes to unloading his weapon.

I told Yvesi that she wanted to become a bust, but she promised the abolition of Gandyans.

Pirarucu

Towards his retirement, he has strong intentions.

She is still the most educated and can use athletics as her boot.

She comes from an established family, but that doesn’t stop her from harboring her darkest secret, spending all her money on shopping and paying for gacha.

She’s in it for the money.

Toad

A seasoned scientist. He’s the one he hates the most.

He knows about weapons. He is able to maintain and modify weapons.

After launching an online campaign to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through the sale of in-game cosmetic items, the team behind Roblox’s Royale High has reached their goal of $1 million. in just two weeks.

One of the most popular sandbox gaming experiences, Royale High is a fantasy world from creator callmehbob where Robloxians can play mini-games, attend fashion shows, trade in-game cosmetic items, or simply spend some time in various places.

Fashion is an integral part of Royale High’s appeal. The game also allows players to customize their characters in the experience independent of their actual Roblox avatars. Players can choose from dozens of free items, purchase items with in-game currency that they can earn in various ways, or pay Robux for more intricate designs.

In recognition of Cancer Awareness Month, which takes place throughout September, the team at Royale High has launched an initiative to raise a million dollars for St. Jude through the sale of in-game cosmetics. The Goddess of Triumph set is available in-game throughout the month, with all proceeds going to St. Jude.

The developers also shared that players who purchased all of the items in the set, costing around 4,500 Robux (about $50), would also get access to a reworked Magical Enchantress skirt. However, the team would release the design only after reaching their million dollar goal.

The new Magical Enchantress skirt is a reworking of a classic garment from the game. Designed by SaltehShio, this spectacular and sprawling item is a whimsical take on high fashion. The reworked skirt has 12 styles, or “toggles”, that alter its appearance. LandG Games showed off the skirt and its various toggles in a recent YouTube video.

The development team noted that Royale High players who already own the Magical Enchantress skirt, which was previously released but is otherwise off-sale, can also access the reworked version of the skirt.

St. Jude works closely with the gaming community, often through a dedicated initiative called St. Jude PLAY LIVE. Over the years, content creators have raised over $45 million for the children’s cancer research charity.

How to play Xbox and PC Game Pass games on Steam Deck https://vietcong-game.net/how-to-play-xbox-and-pc-game-pass-games-on-steam-deck/ Wed, 14 Sep 2022 14:43:05 +0000 https://vietcong-game.net/how-to-play-xbox-and-pc-game-pass-games-on-steam-deck/ Want to know how to play Game Pass on the Steam Deck?

Want to know how to play Game Pass on the Steam Deck? Well, there is a method, but it may require you to go through complex steps to get up and running properly.

Game Pass is one of the best deals you can get in gaming right now. Hundreds of games, including EA Play, and streamed from anywhere? It’s basically a dream come true for many of us.

However, no, you cannot directly install Game Pass games on Steam Deck or SteamOS via Lutris/Wine or even Valve’s Proton.

Microsoft is – predictably – suspicious about how and where you play these Game Pass games. While they may be touting a “game for everyone” message right now, the way Game Pass works outside of Xbox and streaming is weird. This is because Microsoft uses something called UWP to run games.

How to Play Game Pass Games on Steam Deck: Streaming

Dexerto

With UWP in place, there are a few methods to get Game Pass games working on the Steam Deck, the easiest of which is streaming them.

It’s the best option for those who don’t want to install Windows 11 on their Steam Deck, which is a lot more work-intensive due to its unique hardware. You can’t just install and go, there are drivers and more to install. Overall, streaming is currently the easiest way to do this.

As long as you’re using a Chromium browser, you should be able to stream games without issue. Chromium powers both Chrome and Edge, so we’ll go with Edge for simplicity.

Firefox won’t work, so you’ll need to grab Edge from the App Store Discover.

Now let’s add it to Steam. In desktop mode, tap the plus button, then choose Edge from the list of apps. Once we’ve done that, we can move on.

Now you next want to open Konsole, the terminal app on SteamOS. This will ask you to copy-paste the following into:

flatpak –user override –filesystem=/run/udev:ro com.microsoft.Edge

With that copied, it will give Edge access to your commands when we enter game mode.

To access the on-screen keyboard in desktop mode, press Steam + X.

However, navigating to the website you’ll need each time you load Edge into gaming mode will be a hassle. Rather than doing this every time, Microsoft has prepared some settings for the Steam Deck to follow.

Find Edge in your Steam library, right-click and press Properties. Then find Launch Options and copy-paste the following:

–window-size=1024,640 –force-device-scale-factor=1.25 –device-scale-factor=1.25 –kiosk “https://www.xbox.com/play”

Save and you can now exit Game Mode. Inside Game Mode, when you first load Edge, you should be taken directly to Xbox Cloud Streaming.

What is UWP?

xbox game pass logoMicrosoft

On Windows, games are not installed like your usual .exe and then a list of extracted files to run the game. It’s all there, but is converted and sorted like UWP, Universal Windows Platform. This essentially allows developers to create an application (in this case a game) which will then be released on all of Microsoft’s platforms.

UWP originally carried a lot more weight when Windows 8 came out. Since Microsoft ditched the Metro UI (God rest his soul) and the Windows Store doesn’t do much besides installing Game Pass and streaming apps, it’s just of a bulky file type to prevent piracy.

You can check out our guides on how to install Good Old Games and Epic Games Store titles on your Steam Deck, as well as how to play your free Amazon Prime Gaming games.

Ubisoft game subscription service Ubisoft+ will be free for PC for one month. The publisher announced that UbisoftMore will be free until October 10 during the Ubisoft Forward event. So gamers will be playing games from popular franchises like Far Cry, Assassin’s Creed, and Ghost Recon for free over the coming month. Ubisoft says it also includes new day one releases, premium editions, exclusive DLC rewards, and more.

Ubisoft Plus offers over 100 PC games for free

PC players who wish to participate in this campaign must download Ubisoft Connect, a special game launcher for Ubisoft. Additionally, you must enter a payment method and create a Ubisoft+ Account. When your 30-day free trial ends, if you have not canceled it, your subscription will automatically renew and you will be charged.

Ubisoft offers a free trial for the Multi-Access tier, which costs $18 per month. Also, the monthly cost for PC Access is $15.

You can play popular titles like Far Cry 6, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion or Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 for a month with Ubisoft+. Also included in the campaign, which runs until October 10, 2022, are people who already have an active subscription.

It is to highlight that Ubisoft+ is a subscription service that can only be used on PC. So Xbox and PlayStation players are unfortunately not included in this campaign. However, Xbox Game Pass subscribers can access the Ubisoft+ catalog as part of the Microsoft and Ubisoft partnership.

“Play your favorite franchises, challenge yourself and your friends, or create new worlds on PC with Ubisoft+,” the publisher said at the Forward event. “[It] including new day one releases, exclusive premium edition DLC rewards and more.

Every month, Valve updates the Steam Hardware Survey to showcase the hardware and software its users use, and it’s always fascinating to see what graphics cards are available to drive the PC games we all play. It should come as no surprise that the NVIDIA GeForce Range makes up the bulk, but August 2022 figures show that over 70% of all Steam gamers are on GeForce.

Which is, yes, impressive. This number spans several generations of GeForce hardware, with the most popular GPUs being the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060. The mainstream GTX 1060 has also topped the list for some time.

But, if you count both the desktop and laptop variants of the GeForce RTX 3060, the current consumer GeForce card, this ends up being the most popular GPU on the market. In fact, the survey paints a very impressive picture of the success of the GeForce RTX 30 series – with over 15% of GPUs coming from this range, including the high-end GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 cards.

In terms of NVIDIA’s dominance, the best AMD discrete GPU according to the survey is the AMD Radeon RX 580. The company’s first current-gen card on the list, the AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT, looks pretty weak.

With NVIDIA and AMD set to launch their next generation of graphics in the coming months, it will be interesting to see how this list evolves.

Biomorph seeks to follow in the footsteps of the now-iconic Hollow Knight – which went down in history as one of the best indie games of all time – while also channeling elements from Nintendo’s classic Kirby series. We caught up with Lucid Dreams Studio Founder and Tech Developer Francis Lapierre to discuss how the team plans to shake up the classic genre.

As someone who loves all things dark and spooky, I was immediately drawn to Lucid Dreams’ Metroidvania game, Biomorph. Featuring a bat-like protagonist with big ears and a passion for beating up the bad guys, the game‘s animated style and fast-paced action are an absolute treat for 2000s emo kids like me.

Although plot details are currently scarce, the core of Biomorph’s gameplay is the ability to scan enemies and transform into them, using their own attacks and tactics against them.

Not only is it a lot of fun, but it makes combat more varied and, depending on the enemies around, a plot tougher – after all, as Lapierre reminds us, “Biomorph is a Souls-like” – but how did this mashup come about?

Biomorph is the brainchild of a team of 12 developers, each of whom wanted to emulate the “personality” of Hollow Knight in their own Metroidvania adventure.

It all started with the game’s protagonist, who started out as a robot. “The first version of the character was a robot, but we did playtesting and people didn’t like it,” Lapierre explains, “so we redesigned him with big ears and then people loved it. Playing humans is what you do in your normal life – we wanted to get away from that.

From there, the team moved on to character biomorphing mechanics, looking at how they might integrate a Kirby-style “eat people and steal their powers” mechanic into a whole opposite polar universe. “We asked ourselves ‘what can we do that hasn’t been done before?’ “says Lapierre.

“You have to kill monsters to biomorph, but when you kill a monster it respawns and is much stronger – the monster learns like the character,” says Lapierre. “When we introduce a new monster, it’s the ‘vanilla’ version, but as they get bigger they get harder.”

This mechanic is specifically for those looking for a challenge. “We want to appeal to fans of Souls-like games,” Lapierre says, but goes on to point out “we don’t want to make a game that’s too difficult – even if it’s a Souls-like game, we don’t want it to be unfair We want it to be challenging, but not frustrating.”

Although Lapierre admits that it might not appeal to “die-hard Souls fans”, he hopes the game’s stunning storyline and graphics will capture players’ imaginations.

The Biomorph release date set for 2023, with more details appearing every day. If you’re looking for a challenge to keep you busy while you wait, be sure to check out our best games like dark souls for pc list to prepare for your Biomorph adventure.
