20.08.16 / Nintendo / Author: admin / Comments Off on Metroid Prime Game for the Nintendo Gamecube
Super Metroid is probably one of the best game franchises that Nintendo has published. Back in the early days of the Nintendo game consoles, a lot of people really loved the Super Metroid games.
It is simple yet complex in some parts. And, you get to control one of the most badass characters in side-scrolling shooting games, Samus Aran.
Today, I am going to talk about the Metroid Prime Game for the Nintendo Gamecube. This is the first game where the Metroid series took on the first-person approach as opposed to the side-scrolling scheme we were used to.
The story starts when Samus Aran got a distress signal from the Orpheon, a space pirate ship. In the ship, she battles genetically modified organisms which are quite powerful, but nothing that she can’t handle.
After reaching the ship’s core, she came across the Parasite Queen. This Parasite Queen is responsible for the proliferation of the Parasites that were scattered around the ship.
After defeating the Parasite Queen, the Queen falls into the ship’s reactor prompting the self-destruct sequence of the frigate.
During Samus escape attempt, her suit was damaged due to a powerful electrical surge. This prompted her to wear her original power suit. She also plots a course towards a nearby planet called the “Tallon IV”.
Upon her arrival on the planet, she explored it and came upon the Chozo Ruins. This is what remains of the previous civilization called the “Chozo”.
Apparently, there was a huge meteor that struck the planet and with it comes an unknown substance which they call as the “Phazon”.
Phazon was not the only thing that landed on the planet as the meteor also brought with it a creature known only as “The Worm”.
Because of the threat of the Phazon and the Worm, both of these foreign matter were concealed in an Artifact temple.
The only way for people (and the Chozo) to access the Artifact Temple is by using the twelve Chozo artifacts.
After the course of the game (where Samus gains some power suit improvements), Samus goes to the Phazon Mines.
In the Phazon mines, she finds out that this was the base of operations of the space pirates and here too, are the phazon-enhanced space pirates as well.
After battling with the big boss in this mines, Samus obtained the Phazon suit. In her final pursuit, Samus uses the twelve Chozo artifacts to put a stop to the Worm, who has been supplying all of the Phazon all along.
The Metroid Prime Game for the Nintendo Gamecube is the first game in the series that dons a first-person perspective. After much backlash, fans and critics alike actually praised the game.
You will control Samus Aran, a bounty hunter, and she will mostly be controlled using the first-person perspective.
Once she transforms into a ball (thanks to her suit), you will then be able to control her using the third-person perspective.
Much like the Metroid games of old, Samus can traverse different parts of the Tallon IV by going through tunnels.
Since this is the first Metroid game that uses the first-person perspective, there is a new lock-on mechanism that allows you to aim at enemies with ease.
Furthermore, Samus also has different power suit modifications that do a lot of different things and they are pivotal should you want to finish the game.
The Metroid Prime Game for the Nintendo Gamecube is a really good iteration of the Metroid game. Although it is not a side-scrolling shooting game anymore, it still has the allure of Samus Aran.
16.05.16 / Gaming / Author: admin / Comments Off on Uncharted 4
If you love to play a game where you get to be a treasure hunter ala Indiana Jones, then I might just have the game for you.
Uncharted 4 was just recently released and it is an amazing action-adventure 3rd shooting game.
The game revolves around Nathan Drake and his adopted brother, Sam. Both of them are really good treasure hunters.
During the events of previous installments, Sam was presumed dead and Nathan was the only one left to scour for treasures hidden around the world.
After 15 years, Sam finally located where Nathan (Nate) was and he told him about a long lost treasure that they’ve searched for since their beginning days of hunting treasure.
When asked how Sam was still alive, he said that he was left to rot in a jail and was only able to escape thanks to a druglord’s help. That help didn’t come free, though, as the druglord wants Sam to get the famous treasure.
Nate was already happy with his wife, Elena, when Sam came to him. Sam knew that he needed help and the only way he can get the treasure is by employing the aid of his brother Nathan.
The game then shifts to Sam and Nathan’s adventures in search of that highly-coveted treasure.
After the events of the game, Nathan lives peacefully with his wife Elena along with their daughter, Cassie. One night, Nathan tells Cassie about all of his adventures.
Uncharted 4 is rumored to be the last installment of this amazing franchise. This game is available for the Playstation 4 and the console gave justice to the game not only from a story standpoint but also in the graphics.
As for the gameplay, Uncharted 4 is an action-adventure game where you will have a 3rd person perspective. This game has a lot of different elements: you can go stealth and avoid enemies altogether or you can shoot and kill them when necessary.
Nathan Drake has all the physical capabilities that are essential to becoming a great treasure hunter. He can run, swim, go behind enemies and kill them, and he is very adept at finding treasures.
The game is so diverse in that there are multiple paths you can choose. All of the paths can be explored and it is up to the player where he wants to go.
Also, Uncharted 4 also has massive maps that are unlike the previous installments. This is actually a good thing since this game is the last game in the franchise.
What I do love about the Uncharted 4, though, is the Multiplayer aspect. You can play solo with the help of AI teammates or you can play with other players as well.
For the solo multiplayer games, you can assign your AI teammates anything you want them to do to help you win.
For anything else, you can fight against other players. You can also use items called “Mysticals” that have untold powers. Some of these powers allow Drake to move quickly, some grant super-human strength, and so on. It is up to you to explore the niceties and complexities of the game.
I am saddened that Uncharted 4 will be the last game of the franchise but I am also happy at the same time because the developers made sure that this game will bid goodbye on a high note.
23.02.16 / Lenovo / Author: admin / Comments Off on Lenovo Vibe Z
Lenovo has ventured into the mobile phone niche for quite some time now; offering budget-friendly to flagship mobile phones to the consumer market.
In today’s article, we are going to talk about one of their flagship models, the Lenovo Vibe Z. Does this flagship model by Lenovo have enough bells and whistles to woo people into buying this mobile phone? We’ll find out.
The design of the Lenovo Vibe Z looks premium and stylish. The mobile phone is made of durable polycarbonate plastic, which is a lightweight and sturdy plastic usually found on most modern phones. It also has a silver aluminum frame wrapped on the sides of the phone to give it its premium look.
Button placements in the Lenovo Vibe Z are quite peculiar. On the left-hand side of the device lies the volume controls; the right-hand side has the microSIM slot; on the top of the mobile phone lies the 3.5mm headphone jack and the power button, and at the bottom lies the microUSB port for charging and data transferring.
I am not really a fan of the power button being put on the top portion of the device, but I guess it is a pretty common thing in mobile phones nowadays.
The display of the Lenovo Vibe Z is also good. It comes with a 5.5-inch IPS display screen with a maximum resolution of 1920×1080 and a pixel count of 401ppi. I am always a sucker for IPS displays because of its great viewing angles and punchy color reproduction. If you’re looking to consume a lot of media on a mobile phone, then the Lenovo Vibe Z’s display is a sure winner.
As for the operating system, the Lenovo Vibe Z comes with the Android 4.4.2 Kitkat. This Android version is commonly found in flagship models of yesteryear, but it is sad to see that Lenovo hasn’t upgraded to the latest Android Marshmallow yet.
Under the hood, you’ll find that the Lenovo Vibe Z has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz and it also comes with the Adreno 330 GPU. Also, add to that a good 2GB of system RAM and you’re all good.
Benchmark tests for this mobile phone are actually quite good, but the real-world tests are all that matters. I see no noticeable lag when navigating through all of the mobile phones features. The UI is snappy, the gaming performance is good, and there really is no lag whatsoever with this mobile phone.
For a flagship phone, the Lenovo Vibe Z’s camera isn’t up to par with the competition. It does come with a 13-megapixel rear snapper and a 5-megapixel front camera for those selfies, though.
Some users report that some images captured by the rear camera are a little bit washed out and grainy, but experts think it is because of the camera app that comes with this mobile phone (which Lenovo would hopefully fix in the near future).
And lastly, the Lenovo Vibe Z is equipped with a hefty 3,000 MaH Battery. Lenovo is well-known for its hefty batteries on their mobile phones, and the Lenovo Vibe Z is no different. In fact, you could pretty much use the mobile phone for an entire day without reaching for the phone’s charger.
The Lenovo Vibe Z is a good flagship phone. Despite its lackluster camera, the Lenovo Vibe Z still performs quite well. It has a vibrant screen, a lag-free performance, and a hefty battery life to complement all of that.
If you’re shopping for a good flagship phone that doesn’t break the bank, the Lenovo Vibe Z is a good option.
16.01.16 / Signal boosters / Author: admin / Comments Off on How to Get the Most Out of your Mobile Phone Signal Booster
Mobile phone signal boosters are a Godsend and they help amplify signals in your home, office or vehicle. There are a lot of mobile phone signals boosters out there with their intended use and coverage.
Today, I am going to tell you some tips on how you can get the most out of your Mobile phone signal booster. Here are the tops tips:
- Identify your Service Provider’s frequency. This is probably one of the most important tips for mobile phone signal boosters. Most people buy signal boosters but they do not know the frequency their Service provider is using. If the frequency of the signal booster does not match the frequency that is used by your mobile phone service provider, then you will not get the benefits of the mobile phone signal booster. Always identify the frequency your Service provider is using then buy the signal booster that supports that frequency.
- Opt for Shorter Cables. Most mobile phone signal boosters require you to attach an antenna to a high place, such as the rooftop, for example. But, there are also internal antennas that you need to attach to the base amplifier unit. Opt for shorter cables so that there will be a minimal signal loss. If you are using longer cables, there will be a bigger chance that you will lose signal.
- Buy High-Quality Cables. Some mobile phone signal boosters come with very low-quality cables that easily break and they do not bring the most data as possible. If you have to, buy high-quality cables. Some high-quality cables are the RG-6 and the LMR-400.
- Considerable Distance between Antennas. Most mobile phone signal boosters come with an external and an internal antenna. Make sure that you separate them with a considerable distance. Some experts say the internal and external antennas should have at least 15ft of separation for maximum effect.
- Choosing the Correct Antenna. Mobile phone signal boosters come with 2 commonly used external antennas: the Omni-directional antenna and the Yagi-directional antenna. If your outside signal is very good and you want to get signals from multiple directions, then go for the omni-directional antenna. If, however, your mobile phone signal reception is weak, better opt for the Yagi-directional Antenna. Yagi-Directional antennas get signals from only one source. So, if you install this type of antenna, make sure that you are pointing it towards the direction of your Service provider’s cell tower.
- Inline Boosters. If, for some reason, you are not getting boosted signals because you had to use a longer cable, buy an Inline booster. Inline boosters help the mobile phone signal booster’s capacity to amplify signals. Consult your signal booster’s manual and see which inline booster (how many ohms) it supports.
If you are planning to get a mobile phone signal booster soon, these tips will help you get the most out of it. Remember, always choose the signal booster that supports your service provider’s frequency.

Tags: nintendo, nintendo ds
Video gamers have a sense of nostalgia that is alive and well. Many gamers grew up playing their favorites on “retro” consoles like the Super Nintendo. Even in the age of high tech, amazing graphics and ultra-realistic games, we love going back and playing those games that bring back fond memories of being a kid. The current Nintendo DS consoles feature the best of both worlds.
The Nintendo DS obviously features some of the latest in handheld gaming technology, a field Nintendo of course pioneered with the Gameboy. The two screen set up of the Nintendo DS consoles is revolutionary and changes the way we play games on the go. The latest console is the Nintendo 3DS and it takes it to the next level, offering a mobile gaming experience that goes into three-dimensions. While the gaming experience on these handheld platforms is unparalleled and utilizes state of the art technology, Nintendo knows that gamers love to relive their favorite experiences from the past. As such, there are several popular games from the Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64 era that have been re-released and updated for the Nintendo DS. Here are some of the most popular examples.
To this day, called as one of the best video games of all time, the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was a huge hit on the Nintendo 64. For the Nintendo 3DS, the graphics were updated and the game was re-released, to huge acclaim, yet again. Not only does it include every aspect of the fan-favorite original game but when a player completes the game, they can access the Master Quest, featuring a more complex layout of all the dungeons of the game.
Going back even further in time, one can find a franchise that is still alive and well today: Final Fantasy. Responsible for making some of the bestselling games of all-time, Final Fantasy got its start in the early days of the Nintendo console, like the Super Nintendo. Several Final Fantasy games have been re-released for the Nintendo DS, including Final Fantasy III.
These two aforementioned games are just the start. Other classic games have been released on the Nintendo DS consoles. Great examples include Mario 64, Tetris and many others. With this in mind, the Nintendo DS family of handheld consoles combines the best of both worlds: high tech mobile gaming technology and the nostalgia of playing your favorite childhood games.
