A Titan is born

The GT75 Titan is the very first piece that’s worth talking about. The GT is the first gaming laptop with an Intel Core i9 processor. This processor also has fully unlocked hexa-core performance. This Titan is certainly ready to seamlessly move monoliths, that’s for sure.

The 12-core processor will be aided by MSI’s Cooler Boost Titan cooling design. Marking a performance upgrade of 70% compared to the best the Intel Core i7 series can offer. This will definitely benefit those gamers who want to seamlessly stream their games without issue.

This gaming laptop also comes with DDR4 memory slots that can be expanded up to 32 GB. With an NVIDIA GTX 1080 coming to make the most demanding current generation graphics look like child’s play. This beast will come at an estimate price of $3299 USD.

Some other key features include the 17.3’’ UHD Display which allows for 4K Gaming and the Low-Profile Mechanical keyboard made with gaming enthusiasts in mind. This is a laptop that will definitely be in the sights of those who want seamless gaming at high resolutions.

Sleek and Colorful

Next up we have the GE63/73 Raider RGB Edition. This laptop is heavily inspired by the love we have for RGB color schemes (It’s like we can’t live without a rainbow keyboard). This laptop screams “Style” as its lit with RGB colors on the top cover, keyboard and USB ports.

This laptop also has compatibility with GTX 1070 graphics cards and latest 8th generation Intel Core i7 Processor units. The Raider can also be equipped with a 4K IPS-Level display or 120Mhz Display.

The best features about the Raider are definitely its sleek design and the stylish color palette that will be showing its beauty anywhere it goes. Of course, we can’t forget the features like the Bluetooth 5.0 capability among other features that will definitely leave a lot of gamers pleased.

The Raider will be coming for pre-orders with the most expensive units costing around $2,539 USD. A stylish choice for those who want to look cool while playing their favorite games.

Thin But Effective, Stealthy and Deadly.

The GS65 Stealth Thin is the company’s first gaming laptop to feature a 144Hz 7ms IPS display. It has 4.9mm bezels and the screen-to-body ratio is 82 percent. The laptop comes with GeForce GTX 1070 GPU along with Nvidia Max-Q technology.

This laptop will also pack the latest in Intel i7 processors, making a leap of over 40% in performance over previous builds in the last generation.

Of course, the greatest appeal of the GS65 is the weight. This slim laptop will be a must for people who move around a lot as it weighs a very astounding 1.8 kilograms. Of course, this unit also comes with an exclusive RGB keyboard.

This keyboard has a very unique function which allows users to customize each key individually and also receive real-time game status through keyboard lighting. The price of this unit is around $2,615 USD.

The Future of Laptop Gaming.

There are a lot of things that could be said about these rigs. Such as the fact that they have a lot of impressive features but at the same time they are extremely costly. However, it’s worth pointing out that the performance these rigs offer are definitely worth it.

Could we see something incredible rising from these MSI units? Probably, it’s a matter of time before we see what these monsters are all capable of. I briefly mentioned how incredible the Intel i9 processors are, as such, I’m mostly curious about the Titan’s performance.

I always wanted to be a journalist who listens. The Voice of the Unspoken and someone heavily involved in the gaming community. From playing as a leader of a competitive multi-branch team to organizing tournaments for the competitive scene to being involved in a lot of gaming communities. I want to keep moving forward as a journalist.


ESA director explains why E3 2023 was cancelled




Only a few hours have passed since the cancellation of E3 2023 was announced, and we are still kind of in shock. Although we were aware that the legendary industry event faced an uphill struggle due to publishers withdrawing left and right, it still feels a little weird, don’t you think?

Stanley Pierre-Louis, executive director of the Entertainment Software Association (ESA), discusses what transpired and what to anticipate in an interview with Pierre-Louis says that “we were off to a strong start. There was interest among exhibitors, industry players, the media, and certainly the fans. Ultimately, there were challenges that proved too large to surmount.” The ESA partnered with event coordinator ReedPop for the first in-person event in a number of years.

One of these insurmountable difficulties was the current development schedules studios have been dealing with ever since the COVID pandemic started, and another was the global economic turmoil that followed. Some businesses have started to rethink spending on pricey exhibit space and significant marketing events as there is less money available.

When asked about E3 returning in 2024, Pierre-Louis sticks to the script, saying that “at that time, we will have more news to share.” He also adds that “we’re committed to providing an industry platform for marketing and convening, but we want to make sure we find that right balance that meets the needs of the industry.”

As you might anticipate, he gives a completely non-committal response. In our opinion, the E3 period appears to be coming to an end. The writing has been on the wall for a while now, with so many less expensive and more efficient ways of spreading the word about upcoming games and endeavors, not to mention public reluctance in the wake of a horrific pandemic. We can only hope that Sony has been saving the best for the much-anticipated Showcase.

Do you believe E3 will ever come back, or are the heydays of attending conventions really over?

Shuhei Yoshida wants to change how independent game developers see PlayStation





Shuhei Yoshida has worked in the video game industry for decades. He was president of SIE Worldwide Studios during a very important time in PlayStation’s history, and his fans love him very much. He was given a BAFTA fellowship for all he has done for the gaming industry and how he has helped it grow.

He is in charge of Sony’s Independent Developer Initiative right now, which helps independent developers bring their projects to life by setting up partnership and marketing deals. But some people think that the PS5 isn’t as friendly to independent developers as previous generations. We’ve written a lot about this in the past.

In an interview with, Yoshida talked about the difficulties of getting the word out and what he hopes to accomplish in the future. He said, “We’re trying to change people’s ideas about how hard it is to make and publish games for the PlayStation. This is a communication challenge we’ve been working on.”

Yoshida says that this is being done with a sort of PR blitz: “We’ve been doing conference tours, going to events, giving talks and keynotes, and other things to let developers know that we’re open to having their games on PlayStation.”

Yoshida says, “There are so many great quality games that no one knows about. It’s always been hard to get funding, but there’s more and more money coming into the industry all the time. Digital storefronts can have an unlimited number of games because they’re digital, but there’s only so much space at the front of the storefront.”

Subscription services like PS Plus could help with this problem by giving players another way to get them to try a game they normally wouldn’t. Yoshida says, “People who have subscribed to the service already have access to all these games, so there’s a better chance that your game will be tried by people who didn’t know it existed,” so subscription services can help more people find good games.

We don’t know if Journey will ever get back to its glory days, but we wish Mr. Yoshida the best of luck with this project. How do you feel about the state of indie games on the PS5?

Why PS4 and PS5 Owners Should Take Notice of the Tails of Iron DLC for PS Plus





Tails of Iron, a hardass 2D role-playing game, is one of the PlayStation Plus Essentials for the month of April. Don’t worry; we’ll tell you why you should check it out even if you don’t have a PS Plus subscription on April 4th, when it becomes available to those who already have one.

Redgi, the rat prince in Tails of Iron, is on a mission to regain his throne from the imperious toads. The amazing Doug Cockle, who is perhaps best remembered for his role as Geralt in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, narrates the animated video down below, which does an excellent job of setting the mood.

The gameplay is intense, requiring steel nerves since, like in 2D Souls games like Salt & Sanctuary and Hollow Knight, you’ll have to fully commit to every move you make. Redgi employs a deliberate, planned strategy in fighting, changing up his armor and weaponry to keep the odds even.

Despite its pleasant forest setting, Tails of Iron is known for being a difficult game with numerous demanding bosses. After completing the main mission (which should take 8-10 hours), you may dive into the meaty Bloody Whiskers post-game DLC.
Both the calmer 3D adventure game Sackboy: A Great Adventure and the genre-bending horror game Meet Your Creator have worthy companions in Tails of Iron.

In April, you can check out Tails of Iron if you haven’t already.
