Some Tips to Maximize Overwatch’s New Hero

Overwatch’s new hero, the sniper-healer Ana, is currently available on the Public Test Realms.

A lot of people have tried it and the pros are really enjoying the character so much. They went on to share some quick tips on how to maximize Overwatch’s new hero.

So in this article, I will go over some quick tips on how you can get the full potential of Ana in the game.

1. Ana’s Role. The first thing I want to point out is that Ana will not directly replace Widowmaker as the go-to sniper. That is because Ana is predominantly made as a support hero and not a hero that will hide somewhere and kill enemies without them noticing where the shots came from. There are two firing modes that Ana can do. The first one is the zoomed-in shot where you use Ana’s sniper scope in order to either heal teammates or do damage to the enemy. The other one is the zoomed-out approach where you shoot her bullets and you can see it as a projectile. Basically, the former is more accurate while the latter is not. But, both of them can be amazing in different scenarios.

2. Put your enemies to sleep. Ana has an amazing tool to deter enemies from ever reaching you and that is her sleeping dart. Although it does the job of putting enemies to sleep, did you know that you can also use the sleeping dart in order to cancel the ultimates of some characters? That is right, the sleeping dart can be used to deter any heroes that come after you and you can also disrupt their ultimate abilities as well. So for Genji and Winston, for example, you can shoot a sleeping dart and their ultimate will be all for naught.

3. Use Nano Boost to your Team’s Advantage. Ana’s ultimate ability, the Nano Boost, works much the same way as Lt. Morales’ ability in Heroes of the storm; the difference being that sniper mom’s ability increases the damage of her ally rather than the attack speed. Nano Boost, in my opinion, is probably one of the best support ultimates in the game. Imagine a Genji using his ultimate with a Nano Boost buff on him? That is very deadly in that even tanks cannot take the damage. Use Nano Boost on allies that deal a ton of damage. Heck, you can even put a Nano Boost on Reaper and he will constantly kill any enemies in sight (provided that they are in range).

4. Be on the constant lookout. Ana is a support character that can not only deal damage but can also heal as well. It is important to remember that Ana is a support role and you should be on the constant lookout for your allies’ HP. If you see that your allies need healing, prioritize healing first before shooting at the enemy. This is key as the current Overwatch meta only has one support hero in every team.

Ana is amazing to use. She can deter enemies from reaching her; she can fire healing rounds and deal damage to enemies, and she can also use sleeping darts to deter any ultimate abilities in the game.

There is still no release date for Ana and if you want to try her out, just go to the PTR of the game.

Overwatch is available for the PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 game consoles.

Niantic Finally Speaks Up About the Recent Pokemon Go Fiasco

Over the weekend, Niantic released an update that although fixed a lot of bugs, it left players without anything to track new Pokemon because they removed the Pokemon tracking tool altogether.

The Pokemon tracking tool was removed in light because of the recent “three-step” bug wherein no matter what people do, people will only be greeted with three footprints and that they cannot see or catch Pokemon after that.

Some people were really angry, some people even went to ask for refunds because they’ve donated to the game with the microtransactions feature.

After much community outrage, Niantic finally releases a lengthy statement about the current changes made and why they did what they did.

According to Niantic, the Pokemon tracking tool was removed from the game because they want to “improve upon the underlying design” of the said tracker. They also went on to say that the tracking tool was deemed confusing as most players still do not know how to use it properly.

I think I will have to agree with that. That is because Niantic’s game really doesn’t have any tooltips on what a certain feature does. This leaves players to themselves and they would have to resort to the internet to search for answers on how to really use the Pokemon Tracking tool.

Lastly, Niantic ended the paragraph with the Pokemon Tracking tool, as it currently stands, were not up to the standards they’ve put.

The Pokemon tracking tool was just a part of the meat; Niantic also addressed the issue as to why they’ve closed down Third-party tracking websites as well.

According to the gaming company, they’ve closed them down because they were interfering with the company’s quality of service. They also said that with these third-party websites, it also hampered them to release the game to the worldwide audience.

As to how third-party websites could affect the game’s worldwide rollout was left for people to ponder.

Now, aside from the Pokemon tracking tool, players were also angry about Niantic’s apparent silence despite the noisy outcry.

According to Niantic, they are currently working “crazy hours” just to make sure that people are continuously enjoying the game.

They also said that it would be better if the company would focus more on the action rather than telling people about what they’re currently doing.

To tell you the truth, this move by Niantic just makes it apparent to everyone that they are indeed inexperienced when it comes to customer relations.

For one, every move by the company should be disclosed to the general public; you cannot just let people hanging.

Furthermore, a major and integral part of the game was removed without the ability to use alternative methods to track Pokemon. They’ve also said that it hampered their ability for a worldwide rollout. That is just not a good reason at all.

How could third-party tracking websites hamper their rollout of the game to the worldwide audience? I think that is just part of their poor oversight.

Still, Niantic assured players that they are working their butts off to fix the game the soonest time possible.

Pokemon Go’s player base is on a steady decline, so they better do something about it before fans will completely ditch the game for good.

Dragon Age Inquisition

In recent years, I am quite sad because there are not a lot of compelling RPG games out there.

As a bonafide RPG gamer, I always look for RPG games that not only has a compelling storyline but an amazing gameplay as well.

Well, there are still some RPG games that caught my interests. One RPG game caught my attention and it will be the subject of today’s article.

The Dragon Age Inquisition is a game that was released back in 2014 and it garnered a lot of gaming awards, including a nomination for game of the year.

What made this game rake some of the most prestigious gaming awards? We are going to talk about what makes this game great in this article.

Dragon Age Inquisition focuses on the player character. The main character, known as the “inquisitor”, is a special character because they have a mark on their hand.

This mark is the only thing that can close the breach. You see, in the fantasy world of Thedas, the game’s main setting, there is a breach in the sky that no one has predicted. We will talk more about the breach later.

The game’s story starts during the negotiations to end the mage-templar war. Apparently, there was a major rift between these two groups. Just when everything’s going to be alright, an explosion happened and thus, opening the breach.

This breach was a portal between the physical world and the “Fade”, the world of spirits. Due to the opening of this breach, countless monsters came through it and tried to invade the whole of Thedas.

During one of the skirmishes, the main character found out that his/her mark has the power to close the breaches (there are a lot of breaches but there is one major breach that is the focal point of the game).

After knowing about the inquisitor’s power, a former Templer who calls herself as Cullen and an Ambassador known as Josephine has created the “Inquisition”, a group of brave warriors who are tasked to close the breach.

The Dragon Age Inquisition, just like any other amazing RPG game, let’s you create your very own character. You can choose which race you want, which class it’s going to have, and of course, their appearance. You can also choose which gender you want as well.

Your role, as the main character, is huge. Since people look up to you now, your decisions will ultimately affect the game’s landscape. Furthermore, you can choose to execute or release prisoners or rogues as you wish.

There is also a “Romance” aspect of the game where the inquisitor will have romantic relationships with any members of the inquisition. All of this depends on the age and gender of the inquisitor. And for what it’s worth, there is also some sex scenes as well (to increase intimacy).

But what I really love about the Dragon Age Inquisition is its combat system. The game’s combat system borrows some elements from another popular RPG game, Baldur’s Gate.

Basically, aside from your character, you can also choose to command your other party members. There is a total of four characters in a party and you will have control over the other 3 as well.

You can command them to do whatever it is that you please. You can task one character to heal, attack, or cast magic spells.

There is a lot to love about the Dragon Age Inquisition. No wonder it garnered a lot of awards and critical acclaim.

If you want a diverse RPG game with a great cast and very good voice acting, the Dragon Age Inquisition will not disappoint.

A lot of mobile phone manufacturers now set their eyes on selling inexpensive but good phones. In the past, they’re only bent on selling the best mobile phone money can buy. But according to the statistics, people do not actually buy flagship models because it is just too expensive and they would rather buy a mobile phone that is either budget-friendly or in the mid-range.

Today, we are going to talk about the BLU Vivo XL. This is one of their more inexpensive mobile phones and we will see if the BLU Vivo XL is any good (because this phone is targeted for the mid-range market).

To describe the design of this mobile phone in one word, it would be “Stylish”. Even when if this is a midrange phone, the BLU Vivo XL didn’t compromise on the aesthetics department. It has a glossy back cover with a matte aluminum frame on the sides of the phone. It just feels great in the hands and the matte finish on the sides will prevent this phone from slipping out of your hand.

The power and volume controls are situated on the right side of the phone; the microUSB port is located at the bottom and the headphone jack is located at the top; which are usual placements for these ports.

I love how the company managed to put just a small bezel on the screen. This allows you to enjoy your content even more without having those borders get in the way. The BLU Vivo XL comes with a 5.5-inch AMOLED display but it only has a 720p resolution with a pixel density of 267ppi.

It is quite sad given that this mobile phone has awesome aesthetics. But I guess the company had to cut down on something and the screen is a little bit compromised for the price.

Still, the 5.5-inch AMOLED display provided excellent color saturation and since the screen is big enough, you can enjoy all of your media content without any worries at all.

As for the mobile phone’s performance, the BLU Vivo XL comes with the MediaTek MT6753 octa-processor that has a clock speed of 1.3GHz and it is also coupled with the Mali-T720 GPU and a respectable 2GB of RAM.

The specs are pretty much very good and people who are looking to multitask with this phone will have no problems. There is no noticeable lag and I was able to play games without any stutters whatsoever.

Shifting from application to application is also buttery smooth and I don’t see any stutters transitioning from one app to another.

The camera is also quite good. For the price, you get a 13-megapixel rear camera with phase detection autofocus and a dual-tone LED flash. It also comes with a good 5-megapixel front camera for selfies.

As to be expected, the camera performs really well in good lighting conditions but suffers a little bit when you are in low-lit environments. Still, I find the camera good enough for everyday use.

In terms of connectivity, the BLU Vivo XL comes with the Bluetooth 4.0 technology and it is also 4G LTE capable. To be able to enjoy 4G LTE without having to worry about signal problems, get a mobile phone signal booster.

The BLU Vivo XL is a very good midrange phone though they had to cut the screen’s resolution to a respectable 720p. Still, for the price, this phone is a very handy everyday phone.

Asus Zenfone 2 Laser

Mobile phone companies nowadays strive to bring phones to the market that are not only beefy in specs, but also bang for the buck. What I meant is that mobile phone companies strive to bring great functionality at an affordable price point.

Today, we are going to talk about the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser. According to a lot of people, the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser is truly a bang for the buck phone. With an inexpensive price comes great and functional features and some powerful components under the hood.

Let’s try and investigate this phone even further. The Asus Zenfone 2 Laser’s design is actually quite good. It has a slim form factor which allows you put to put the mobile phone in your pocket with ease.

The back cover of the mobile phone is a brushed aluminum cover and that the screen itself is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 3. This is a popular glass that is commonly used in mobile phone because of its durability.

The inclusion of a removable back cover allows you to change the battery when it is already showing signs of aging.

For the display, the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser comes with a 5.5-inch IPS LCD Display with a resolution of 1920×1080 (1080p) and a pixel density of 401 ppi. The display also looks quite good even in different viewing angles. The only problem with the display is that outside readability is still an issue. Brightness controls are a bit conservative and it does not do a pretty good job increasing brightness when the situation requires it.

As for the performance of the phone, the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser comes with the Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor that has clockspeeds of 1.7GHz. It is also coupled with the Adreno 405 GPU and 3GB of RAM.

Asus opted for a more popular choice in the form of the Qualcomm snapdragon chipset as opposed to the Intel chipset used in Asus mobile phones in the past. Even if they veered away from the conventional Intel chipset they’ve used in the past, performance is surprisingly good and snappy.

The camera of the phone is also quite good. The Asus Zenfone 2 Laser comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera with a laser auto-focus feature (that is why this mobile phone got the name Asus Zenfone 2 Laser).

This proprietary laser auto-focus technology allows you to focus on specific frames with ease, allowing you to take crisp and clear photos without any delay. Although the phone lacks some dynamic range, it still provides awesome photos.

The Asus Zenfone 2 Laser comes with the Android Lollipop operating system. They also had their own spin on things included with the Zen UI. Actually, the Zen UI adds to the already interesting interface of the Android 5.0.

Along with great specs under the hood and a great operating system that provides a snappy performance, navigating through the phone’s features are really good and visually appealing.

Asus really brought out a great, bang for the buck phone in the form of the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser. This mobile phone is a great mid-range phone and it only costs $200.

D-Link is one the most prominent router manufacturers in the world. They offer really good routers that are not only inexpensive, but is worth every dollar you spend on it. But today, we’re not going to look at their budget line of routers, we are going to look at their enthusiast-grade routers. I am referring to the D-Link AC3200 Ultra Wi-Fi Router.

If there is one word to sum up everything the AC3200 Ultra Router, it would be INSANE. The D-Link AC3200 Ultra Wi-Fi Router is a Tri-band router, which means that it has a 2.4GHz band capable of speeds of up to 600MBps, and 2 5GHz bands! Not only that, but the AC3200 Ultra has a “Smart Connect” feature. This feature will scan the existing bands and will connect your device to the one that offers the best speeds!

ac3200Here are the features of the D-Link AC3200 Ultra Wifi-Router:

  • Smart Connect: Prevents older devices from affecting optimal performance
  • Advanced AC Smart Beam: Bring dead zones back to life by delivering individual beams of bandwidth where you need it the most
  • Latest Processor: 1 GHz Dual Core Processor for a faster network speed for a more powerful router

As, I’ve mentioned before, the AC3200 Ultra has a Smart Connect feature. But the router is not limited to only one technology, mind you. Here are some of the included technologies of the D-Link AC3200 Ultra:

  1. Smart Beam Forming. This technology ensures that you get the most speeds wherever you are at home. Stream HD content, play games, and do VOip calls with no drops or lags at all!

  3. Six Antennas. Most other routers out there only have a maximum of 4 external antennas. But, not the AC3200 Ultra! This router sports a whopping 6 external antennas for greater signals across your home and office!

I can go on and on with the features of this router, but here are some customer reviews to persuade you into buying this router:

James: “This router really expanded my signal throughout my entire property! I had to use tech support to view my security cameras remotely but Randy AR004611 really stepped up and educated me as to how to port forward my nvr and in no time he had it working, 5 stars for you too Randy!! Highly recommend tis router!!”

Robert: “This router has solved the family connectivity issues… My wife has her band and is happy, and there is plenty of speed for the rest of our wireless devices. The D-Link software is the best I have used and works without any hassles. The remote camera just “plug” in with the press of a button.

D-Link remote software is solid and it is easy to keep an eye on all the devices and camera anywhere in the world.”

With some of the awesome features that are not present in other routers, the D-Link AC3200 is one of the best in the market. It does have a hefty price tag of $270 dollars, but with a company that has the reputation and the features, you can never go wrong with the D-Link AC3200 Ultra Router.
