Alienware gaming products are not cheap. Therefore, the people who buy them expect to get a lot for their money. They are usually not disappointed. Alienware has developed a reputation over the years for being able to develop very powerful gaming desktops that are far superior to anything that their competitors are developing at the moment. That tradition will continue with the release of the new Area 51 gaming desktop that will officially go on sale at the end of July. The machine will feature AMD’s 16-core CPU. It will be the first gaming desktop to boast this very powerful processor. This will allow the machine to be able to provide users with a gaming experience that is far beyond any of the other gaming desktops that are currently available on the market.
The Area 51 gaming desktop is sure to solidify Alienware’s position at the very top of the gaming desktop industry. The company is owned by Dell. They have been able to carve out a very successful and lucrative niche by supplying high-end gaming devices to people who are willing to pay top dollar for the ultimate gaming experience. The Area 51 gaming desktop made its debut at the Los Angeles E3 convention. It received rave reviews from the people who were lucky enough to be able to play it.
Dell has not yet revealed what the price will be for the remarkable new machine that they have created. They have already released the Inspiron gaming PC which has a price of $600. Logic would dictate that the Area 51 gaming PC will cost considerably more because it is much more powerful than the Inspiron. Representatives for Alienware and Dell have not given any indication as to when they will reveal what the price will be. The Area 51 model has been in development for three years. There have been many rumors about it during that time. Now gamers will be finally be able to play games with it.
Metro: Exodus was announced at this year’s E3 on Wednesday. The game will be released in 2018 according to the developers. A continuation of the shooter series, the game is based on the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky, a Russian author. The game continues the saga of Artyom, a “Ranger” surviving in a dark, post-apocalyptic Russia. Battling mutants and rival survivalist humans, Artyom must make his way through the steppe
The game will remain a linear shooter, but will have more leeway for the player to navigate through the barren Russian tundra. (https://www.pcgamesn.com/metro-exodus/metro-exodus-isnt-exactly-an-open-world) Some levels will be outdoors, putting the full tragic horror of life after a nuclear war into focus. Spanning much or Eurasia, the game will be reminiscent of the Last of Us, Fallout and other post-apocalyptic shooters.
This installment in the Metro series will tell the story of Artyom’s travel over a year, whereas the first title took place over short span of time. Thee series uses Soviet nostalgia in the “Red Line” faction and parodies the rise of fascism in contemporary Russia with the “Fourth Reich.”
Metro 2033 came out in 2010 to generally positive reviews and was widely praised for its engrossing storytelling and immersive environment. The lack of a heads-up display made the game feel more realistic and helped build a sense of tension. In addition, the scarcity of ammunition made the game suspenseful and the use of ammunition as currency was innovative. Unfortunately, it was also criticized for having buggy AI and graphics problems, particularly on the Xbox 360.
If the actual game is anywhere near as entertaining as the video released this week, it should be worth buying and playing. You can watch the gorgeous trailer here. (https://www.reddit.com/r/pcgaming/comments/6go02b/metro_exodus_trailer_open_world_metro_game/)
Gamers worldwide are experiencing elation now that the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, has concluded. E3 is a premier event for gaming fans where many video game developers and accessory manufacturers reveal trailers, demos, and product prototypes to usher in the next generation of gaming entertainment. In this list, I will briefly introduce you to the games which received the most enthusiasm at E3.
Call of Duty: WWII
Call of Duty is the king of first-person shooters and is being developed by Sledgehammer Games. It is promising to revolutionize multiplayer gaming by introducing a “War” mode. It is rumored to be set during the time of the Vietnam War, giving this game a futuristic return to a historic period of time.
Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite
In a clash for the ages, this game brings together two universes in epic battles to protect their universe from an enemy known as Ultron Sigma. Taking iconic characters from the Marvel Universe such as Thor, the Hulk, Hawkeye, and Iron Man, this game puts them against legendary characters developed by Capcom such as Chris Redfield from Resident Evil, Megan Man X, and Chun-Li. Battle another player, the computer, or use a specific Infinity Stone to alter the outcome of your battle. The possibilities are infinite!
State of Decay 2
State of Decay was a dark horse in the zombie survival genre. We’d seen zombie survival done many times before, but this brought a different element to a common theme where instead of just making sure one character survived, you were in charge of multiple characters, very similar to the Sims games. The biggest thing missing from the first game was co-op play. Now, in State of Decay 2, fans will finally get the chance to team up to survive together or die alone. Coming out exclusively for the Xbox and Windows 10, it will be part of Xbox Play Anywhere meaning you can buy it once and play it on both machines.
Tabletop gamers are probably already well aware of the name Battletech, as it’s a popular board game involving weaponized giant fighting suits of armor set in a sci-fi world first conceived back in the 1980s. Video gamers however may have become familiar with a 2015 Kickstarter launched by Harebrained Schemes based on that classic board game.
The Kickstarter was a massive success, raising nearly $3 million and fully funding all of its stretch goals, including multiplayer and a fully voiced single-player campaign. Now, we get our first look at what over two years of development has brought at this year’s E3.
The game is a turn-based strategy game loyal to its turn-based tabletop counterpart. Everything a Battletech fan would expect is there: big, fighing mechs, awesome sci-fi setting, and lots of strategy.
They’ve included a full range of combat options with the battling mechs, including melee, ranged, and rocket-based attacks along with defensive options. Everything is managed by the player, including movements, sensors, and overheating.
Two trailers were launched at E3. The first one showed off the massive amounts of customization options and the game’s excellent soundtrack. The second trailer showed off the game’s combat. The game plays similar to other strategy games yet maintains its own slot as something truly unique with all of the different units and options. They also did an interview with popular gamer Day9, talking about the different modes of play and combat in detail in their own words.
The visuals are quite impressive in close range combat, but even the scenery in a full shot is beautifully drawn and looks like something out of a painting. A lot of the options available from the ship screen were not demonstrated yet, simply instead just showing off their existence. Hopefully the developer will be able to come through on their promises because we’ve all seen too many failed Kickstarters, and a lot of us are going to be pretty skeptical until we see it operating in its entirety.
