Call of Duty Infinite Warfare Deemed as the Most ‘Highly Anticipated Game’ of 2016

There are a lot of PC games available this year. Two of which are upcoming shooters: Battlefield 1 set in World War 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare which takes on a more futuristic approach.

A survey was conducted by a financial firm called “Piper Jaffray” and they asked 100 console gamers which upcoming games they were most excited about.

Out of the 100 console gamers surveyed, 33 of them were highly anticipating the release of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare while 26 gamers are excited about the Battlefield 1 release.

Do note that only 100 gamers were surveyed and they are all using either the Xbox One or the Playstation 4 game consoles. This may not represent what will actually happen in the real world and also consider that PC gamers were not taken into account.

Still, it is quite interesting that 33% of the gamers surveyed want Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare more than EA and DICE’s upcoming shooting game.

Many people believe that Battlefield 1 will surely be way better than Infinite Warfare mainly because of the fact that the former is based on an actual war than happened in the world as opposed to a futuristic, non-historical setting.

It is also an interesting thing to note that 3 of the newest titles from Activision are set in a futuristic world as opposed to something that is close to the modern times.

I guess a lot of people just do not want a game that has a futuristic setting. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was the first Call of Duty game ever to be set in a futuristic timeline but that didn’t bode well with the fans.

Next, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 was considered to be one of the most highly anticipated entries to the franchise but that, too, didn’t live up to its hype.

I guess there is something about futuristic warfare that doesn’t appeal to fans. That is probably because the weapons that are available in the game might not be available in real life in the future or something to that extent.

Battlefield 1 is going to be awesome, though. There was a recently released trailer along with some commentary from the game developers.

Apparently, Battlefield 1 was a game that was created from a lot of research. The developers of the game also had a lot of fun researching about the war because the more they’ve uncovered something about the said war, the more they realize that World War 1 is actually an interesting historical event.

According to one of the developers, World War 1 was a “war of the firsts” in that a lot of countries tried a lot of things for the first time.

This ranges from new guns and weapons to new tactics being implemented in the battlefield.

Anyway, the survey conducted by the financial firm is not definitive as they only surveyed console gamers and left out the PC gamers and 100 of them do not really represent the actual gamer demographic.

Undertale

I love role-playing games and whenever there is a new RPG game released on the internet, I immediately want to play it.

There was this RPG game that was developed by an indie game developer. This game was the product of a crowdfunding campaign.

What I love about this game is that this was created by one game developer only. That’s right, this was made by none other than Toby Fox. What is this RPG game? It is Undertale.

Undertale is a turn-based RPG that has some amazing elements to it. Not only does it have a compelling story but it is one of the most controversial games ever released. More on that later in the article.

A child was transported to the underground where the realm of monsters resides. The monsters are not able to reach the surface because of a thin magical layer.

The player’s character, a child, was about to be attacked by Flowey, a flower monster who introduces some of the game’s mechanics to the child.

Flowey was about to kill the child when Toriel appeared, a goat-like monster who has some motherly instincts.

Toriel teaches the child that the only way for her to survive the underground is to go into the realm of monsters without killing. Although killing is allowed, the player character must avoid killing any monster to avoid problems.

In the Underworld, the player meets with a lot of friends or enemies depending on what you ultimately want to do with them. These characters are Alphys, the royal kingdom’s resident scientist; Sans and Papyrus, the royal’s sentries; Mettaton, a huge robot that was created by Alphys; and Undyne, the head of the royal army.

The player character has two choices; to kill these characters or show them mercy. If you choose the latter, you will become friends with them and they will aid you in your journey to the underworld.

Later in the game, the player finds out the whole story about the war between the realm of the humans and the realm of the monsters.

Apparently, a human child was transported to the underworld where Asgore, the king of the Underworld, and Toriel, adopted and raised him.

Unfortunately, some rogue flower monsters poisoned the kid to die a slow death. Upon returning the body, the humans were angry with the monsters and thus the beginning of the unending war between them.

The gameplay of Undertale is also amazing. It is a turn-based RPG but instead of giving you commands such as attack or casting magic spells, the game presents you with an interface with a heart in the middle.

The heart will represent the player character and you should avoid the enemy’s attacks to survive. During encounters, monsters will have a dialogue with the player and until such time, they will be “defeated”.

After defeating a monster, you have the option to either kill or spare them. Should you spare monsters, especially the ones that have a bearing on the story, you will ultimately change the ending of the game.

I mentioned before that this game was controversial and that is because it was considered a “cult video game” due to the massive following.

This game is definitely one of the best in terms of plot and gameplay. Not to mention, this game was entirely created by one game developer and only a handful of people chimed in to give some help in the art department.

Undertale is a very good RPG game and one that I would highly recommend to any RPG aficionados out there.

Do you love stir-fried foods? I love stir-fried foods. You basically have to chuck in whatever ingredients you have in mind and stir them until they are cooked.

Now, if you’re on the hCG diet, you know that you need to follow a very strict diet protocol wherein you’re only allowed to consume 500 calories on phase 2. I know that isn’t a lot but phase 2 is really the most challenging part of the hCG diet journey.

To make sure that you do not drop out from the diet program, you need to diversify the foods that you eat. Normally, people would think that you have to sacrifice taste in order to succeed in whatever diet plan you follow. But that is not true!

HTC One A9

Mobile phone companies are vying to release a lot of mobile phones in any given year. There are flagship models, budget-friendly ones, and there are also some mobile phones that cater for the mid-range market.

Today, we are going to take a look at the HTC One A9. This isn’t a flagship mobile phone by HTC; so let’s get that out of the way. It does, however, look like the iPhone 6s. It is still unbeknownst to anyone why HTC would copy the aesthetics of the iPhone 6s, but still, it does have an impressive under the hood specs to go along with it.

This mobile phone is a bit cheaper since it is not a flagship model, but do not think that the specs aren’t that great. In fact, the HTC One A9 boasts of impressive performance considering the price.

So, let’s start with the design of the mobile phone. The HTC One A9 has all of its buttons located on the right side of the device. What is different, though, is that the power button is jagged. This makes it easier to distinguish which button is which, especially when you’re in low-lit areas.

The headphone jack is also placed at the bottom, as opposed to its usual place on the top of the mobile phone. This makes it easier for music lovers to plug their phone without the wire obstructing them.

Other than those differences, the HTC One A9 really does look like the iPhone 6s. I don’t know if Apple will sue HTC one for the likeliness in design, but if you like the aesthetics of the iPhone 6s, the HTC One A9 does not disappoint.

As for the display, the HTC One A9 has a 5-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920×1080 and a pixel density of 441ppi. It is also protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 which is quite a sturdy material usually found in premium phones.

HTC deviates from other mobile phone manufacturers in that they did not populate the One A9 with pre-installed crapware. Instead, they focused more on delivering a stock Google Android experience.

The HTC One A9 has the Google Android Marshmallow operating system and it still does have a little bit of HTC’s Sense 7 on it, although, it is not that much.

This Android mobile phone houses some pretty impressive specs. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor with 4 of its cores having 1.5GHz clock speeds and the last 4 cores clocked at 1.2GHz. Also, add to that 3GB of RAM and the Adreno 405 GPU and you’ve got one nifty mobile phone.

Capturing photos daily will also be a treat because this mobile phone comes with a 13-megapixel camera. It does come with optical image stabilization so people with shaky hands will find this mobile phone amazing.

Lastly, the battery life is pretty low, at least, by today’s standards. The HTC One A9 comes with a measly 2,150 MaH battery which will only last you a couple of hours during moderate use. The reason behind this move is that HTC needed to fit a small battery in order to fit it in the slim phone. That is a little bit of a compromise, especially when people need a lot of battery to plow through the day.

Still, the HTC One A9 delivers impressive performance without breaking the bank. This Android mobile phone only costs $450.

Let’s take a look at what else is possible with this handy device. We last covered the Game Interface menu of the R4 3DS. Now, we’re going to see how to play games through this popular flashcart.

Play Games

The R4 3DS can do a lot of things, but it’s best known for playing and altering games. Playing games through the R4 3DS is simple, too.

To get started, make sure your game is inserted into the device. Boot the handheld and then select the game in the R4 3DS game menu. You’ll only need to touch the screen or press A to start up the game.

If you’re playing the game for the first time, the system will automatically build and save the game’s corresponding file. It’ll also notify you that the game’s save file will be affected by its functionality. Each time the game saves, the device’s save files will automatically update each time you play the game. That’s pretty handy if you want to have an auto save function while you’re playing.

The R4 3DS saves its files by date and the name of the game in play; the file extension is .SAV.

The neat thing about the R4 3DS is that is doesn’t overwrite save files. That means you can access older save files if you need. You can access these files by viewing the data via your computer, where you can copy these files, too.

Note: If you’re planning to save multiple files on the R4 3DS, make sure you keep track of your files. It’s tempting to have saves documenting each step of your game’s progress, but remember that sometimes it gets a little tricky keeping track of all of those saves!
