The Asus GX700 is the water-cooled laptop of your nightmarish dreams

2 Sep

Gaming is a big theme of IFA 2015. Acer's unleashing a whole new line of Predators and Lenovo is taking on the challenge with a new range of gaming PCs of its own. But as aggressive and hungry for hype as both have been, neither is going quite as far as Asus, which today introduced the world's first water-cooled laptop.

Destiny: The Taken King – everything we know about Court of Oryx and player events

2 Sep

During Bungie’s Destiny: The Taken King livestream today, Court of Oryx architect Ben Wommack provided some details on the area which is located within the Dreadnaught.

destiny_the_taken_king_court_of_oryx

Viewers of last week’s livestream were given a look at the inside of the ship with the Shield Brothers Strike. Today, the team ventured further into the bowels of the ship, to reach the Court of Oryx.

Players will travel through the Hall of Souls to reach the Court of Oryx, which was described as a “giant arena”. While only Tier 2 was shown, the developer said lower tiers will not play the same bosses every time, providing variable encounters and dynamic dialog. This will help keep things fresh. For example: a Tier 1 and Tier 2 event can be combined for harder difficulty, tossing up to four bosses into the event alongside the usual enemies.

There are three Tiers for The Court of Oryx. Tier 1 bosses are around level 36 difficulty, and Tier 2 bosses will be much harder – similar to Nightfall difficulty. All bosses will have special mechanics, so there won’t be any “bullet sponges”.

Two events for the Court of Oryx were shown. One featured two Knights which must be lured together in order to bring their shields down. The second event features an large Ogre, and the only way to bring his shield down was to use an exploding Thrall.

According to Bungie, there will be various player events along with mysteries to discover such as Taken objects – which the developer didn’t wish to spoil. These events aren’t random, as all are established by the players. Up to six other players can assist your Fireteam in the Court of Oryx, and the entire Fireteam must enter the court or the event will cancel.

Runes are a currency of sorts for Court of Oryx, and once all are acquired – we know of four – players will be handed a large loot chest. These Rune are used to start player events.

To trigger an event, a player must hand over a Rune to one of the statues which spawn challenge missions. The player which presents the Rune to the statue will receive better loot than the rest of the team upon the event’s completion however, Bungie has put a debuff in place called Summoner’s Exhaustion which allows other players an opportunity to initiate the next event.

Antiquated Runes are rare drops in Tier 2, the Nightfall, and Raids. They are used to start Tier 3 events, which Bungie did not show. Wommack said players will have to wait until The Taken King’s release to get a look at Tier 3.

Runes are explained in more detail through the video we posted earlier, and a 10 minute gameplay session featuring the lead-up to the Court of Oryx can be found through another post.

Also of note, Swords will not drop in The Taken King, which means players you will have to forge them. New Ghost Shells will have perks to help players find planetary materials by adding a Waypoint when they get close. One of the new Exotic swords was shown and it’s called the Raze Lighter and like many Exotics with the expansion, they will only drop in the game world.

Destiny: The Taken King will be released on September 15, and the first Raid, King’s Fall, will release three days later on September 18.

Guild Wars 2: An Event On The Horizon and Challenging Content Post

Guild Wars 2: An Event On The Horizon and Challenging Content Post
268626
Guild Wars 2
MMO

ArenaNet have today published two blog posts. The first, titled "The Mordrem Are Coming" provides details on a new event. I can't remember the last we had so this'll be welcome timing on the back of free-to-play. Beginning on September 10th, Mordrem will start to attack Brisband Wildlands, Kessex Hills and Diessa Plateau (have these zones not had enough heartache already?). It also sounds as though participating in the event will net some rewards for those who hand in Modrem Blooms. With a recommend level of 18 and over, it's pretty much open to absolutely everyone. 

From 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7) on September 10 through 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7) on September 13, Mordrem will be staging periodic incursions into Brisban Wildlands, Kessex Hills, and Diessa Plateau. Keep an eye on the world event UI, which will let you know when Mordremoth is launching its assault. Coordinate with other players to stop the Mordrem in their tracks, and you’ll earn Mordrem Blooms. Mordrem Blooms are the research samples the Durmand Priory seek. In exchange for the research samples, the Durmand Priory is offering concessions as a reward.

Alongside the invasion, ArenaNet have published a blog post detailing Raids and what challenging content really involves. For the most part, it's all kinda what I expected from Raids - players having to use everything they've already learnt from playing the game - but there's also a few pieces of information I found surprising. The main thing is the fact that Masteries will need to be used in raids and the second is that loot will be restricted to once per week (or at least, the best loot). My one concern about Masteries playing a part is the fact that it might require getting all 10 of your party to that level, and is that not in effect similar to an Attunement process?

The raid-specific Masteries will serve a couple of purposes, but chiefly they allow the designers to create a feeling of progression throughout the raid content. If a player who is new to raiding joins your squad, he or she will—for the most part—be able to assist entirely in the encounters. That said, there are a number of Mastery traits attached to various facets of the raid encounters. For example, if your squad is working on the last boss of a wing, and no one has a particular and clearly stated Mastery unlocked, you’re probably going to fail spectacularly.

As for loot, I actually quite like the fact the best will be gated to once a week. It means you won't obtain everything instantly and it'll provide you with time during the week to practice, possibly get the raid on farm and test different compositions. I'm looking forward to trying some unconventional setups and seeing just how viable they are. Most importantly, it seems ArenaNet are genuinely attempting to create scenarios where the current Meta won't be effective all of the time. 

 Some encounters are going to push you to try different weapons you rarely use, some are going to challenge you to select traits you haven’t considered equipping before, and some encounters may even require a member of your group to dust off that toughness gear to bulk up and tank some heavy hits to protect the condition-build players in the back. This is just a tiny sample of the types of build roles we want to push as a core part of Guild Wars 2 dynamic combat.

Verizon is about to unveil a new logo

2 Sep

Following its $4.4 billion acquisition of AOL, Verizon today internally unveiled a new logo, writes Advertising Age. Because Google isn't the only company that can revamp itself, right?

Old logo pictured left, new logo on the right:

The new design drastically deemphasizes Verizon's signature red checkmark, moving it over to the right beside the "n." The red "z" in the name is also gone, and the entire logo is now a simpler, straighter Helvetica. According to Advertising Age, the company launched the change internally today and is expected to publicly address it on Thursday.

Lenovo launches Yoga Tab 3 and Yoga Tab 3 Pro Android tablets

2 Sep

Last year, Lenovo and Ashton Kutcher "collaborated" on the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, an Android tablet with a built-in video projector. Does the world truly need such a thing? Apparently so, because for 2015, the company has returned with the Yoga Tab 3 and $499 Yoga Tab 3 Pro. (Kutcher apparently didn't play any hand in these products.) The high-end Yoga Tab 3 Pro is a bit smaller than last year's model; its screen is now 10 inches as opposed to 13, which leads to a higher pixel density on its QHD display. And yes, it's very very sharp to my eyes.

Lenovo says improvements have also been made to the projector inside, which has gotten brighter and can now beam out a 70-inch picture — and you can point it at either the wall or your ceiling this...

Motorola Moto X Pure Edition review

2 Sep

The ideal Android smartphone looks like this: it has good design, fast performance, clean software, and it doesn’t cost as much as an iPhone. Motorola’s been chasing that ideal since 2013 with its Moto X phones, which have always had an attractive ergonomic design, an unencumbered Android experience, and pricing well below flagship smartphones from Apple and Samsung. But at the same time, the Moto X has also represented what many consider to be the worst of Android: lousy cameras and mediocre battery life.

Now Motorola is launching its third edition of the Moto X, which you can preorder starting today. The Moto X Pure Edition (or Moto X Style if you’re not in the US) is a lot like its predecessors. It’s also aggressively priced, perhaps...
