Posted by How To Kill an Hour on Saturday, 2 March 2019

Bionik Mantis VR Headphones – High Fidelity Headset For PSVR are really really cool! They bring super crisp audio to the VR world and a new element to the PSVR experience. To get the most out of the PSVR you have to wear headphones alongside it, the experience just won’t be the same listening through the audio from the television. In most cases headphones will have to be worn either over the ears and subsequently the headset, which is cumbersome. Additionally, you can wear ear buds when playing the PSVR but again it is uncomfortable and the wires get in the way of the playing experience. 

Design

To combat this Bionik have enabled their headphones to clip directly on to the PSVR headset. Furthermore they are lightweight and rest gently on the ears. Consequently eliminating any ear fatigue that may occur using other methods. The cables are tangle proof too, so there are no issues there! Furthermore the Bionik Mantis VR Headphones also share the same colour scheme as the PSVR, complimenting it well. Seamlessly integrating with the rest of the headset!

As they simply clip on to the PSVR the headphones are easily removable and when not in use they can simply be flipped upwards making them easy to put away and store, or if you need to hear what’s occurring in your environment. The headphones can easily be slid up or down the PSVR headset, raised or lowered,  making it easy to adjust for ear location and head size. Every one is different! Furthermore the over the ear pads (often sold separately) blocks out more sound than any other design making it highly immersive.

Anthem First Impressions

Anthem – Impressions

Anthem is EA’s brand new game that really surprised everyone during E3 2017. It’s a brand new game, a brand new franchise in a completely new universe. Anthem is a futuristic open-world RPG that we were very excited about and for good reason! Well, we’ve given it a go and one thing we can tell you is that it is incredible. Furthermore, it is even better with friends, it’s a wonderful co-op game.

Anthem is an online only, multiplayer, open world,  third person RPG game that’s being developed by BioWare Edmonton and published by EA. This game is HUGE and it’s just been released and many gamers are getting to grips with it. While, the game is being compared to Destiny where the game is constantly being updated. (Gameplay bugs, graphical enhancements, small gameplay updates etc etc)

While this game is already huge and there’s plenty to do. There’s gonna be so much more. As EA are calling Anthem an ‘Evolving World’. While game can be played single player, you can add teammates. As it is designed to be played with friends as it’s billed as a co-op game. Consequently, you and your friends take take on a role of a Freelancer in a group of up to 4 bold and courageous people who leave their civilisation to explore a dangerous yet beautiful landscape.

Events

5 Exciting New Gaming Trends

If you need tangible proof of the advancement of technology, the gaming world is the place to go. When you think about how far gaming has come in the last few decades, it’s remarkable. From slow black and white screens to intense real-time gaming, the industry has made leaps and bounds. However, it’s not planning on stopping anytime soon. So, if you want to know what you can expect from the gaming world in the next few years, take a look below.

VR Headset

Virtual Reality

 

Virtual reality isn’t a new concept in the gaming world, but there is room for so much more than there is right now. 3D has been around longer than many people know. The reason that it wasn’t as mainstream as it is now is because it wasn’t affordable. Like the majority of innovative technology, the wealthy are the ones who get to experience it first. However, VR headsets are about to change the gaming world forever. For example, Oculus Rift, created by Palmer Luckey, has a huge field view, quicker response than other headsets and immersive 3D technology.

 

Secondary Screens

 

For years, gamers have been complaining about not being able to do two things at once while playing certain games. This is especially true for action games where time is precious and the last thing you want to do is pause the game to access another screen. The introduction of secondary screens, like Wii U and Xbox SmartGlass. If you are going to use an additional screen, you’ll need a quality HD one the LG 27UK850 Monitor. Being able to access maps or menus from one screen and continue to play on another will make gaming that more exciting.

PS4 Controller

 

Cheap Gaming

 

One of the downsides to gaming is that it can be expensive to kit yourself out with everything you need to get the full experience of games on the market right now. That’s why so many people are playing games on their phones. You can expect to see a rise in android powered game consoles where people can get their hands on cheap and free games with a 1080p gaming experience. The industry will no longer rely on big corporations to create expensive games.

 

Augmented Reality

 

Augmented reality has just as many possibilities as virtual reality. When using augmented reality, a gamer’s reality is altered to provide them with a new experience each time. For instance, games like DroidShooting can be played on phones. The game takes your surroundings and you have to shoot at the droids that appear within those surroundings. You’ll see your own reality on your phone but the game will add to it to create an experience.

Cloud Gaming

 

If you thought the Cloud didn’t have its finger in this pie too, you’d be wrong. The future of gaming will be more accessible, like music and movies, to those who want to game at the click of a button. All it will take is a device and an internet connection to play a selection of different games online.

 

Gaming is constantly changing, but always for the better.

 

Metro Exodus

Metro Exodus is OUT NOW and we think that it is absolutely incredible. Not only is it beautiful but the story is said to be one of the most interesting and immersive gaming experiences out there right now. We will definitely come back to you with a full look at Metro Exodus in the future. But in the mean time, we’re on board. This game has no competitive multiplayer, it has no co-op but what it does have is a vivid story which will keep you entertained for hours. It looks like a movie, what more could you want?!

Five years on from the previous Metro game (Metro: Last Light) you control Arytom and a band of Spartan Rangers. WHo have fled the Moscow Metro and embark on an incredible continent spanning epic journey. Not just any journey either, it’s across a post apocalyptic Russia.

The story is inspired by novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky. Metro Exodus’ storyline is a huge expansive single player experience that blends an incredible narrative. With high octane impact combat, exploration, survival and stealth. Therefore creating one wonderfully atmospheric, immersive world. We haven’t been this excited for a single player experience since Red Dead Redemption II!

Game Over (For Your Opponents): The Ultimate Guide To Getting Better At Gaming

Lets Play: Override: Mech City Brawl

Love robots? Love fighting games? Well we have just the game for you! It’s called Override: Mech City Brawl and it is a LOT of fun! We suggest that you mainly play with friends as it’s a lot more enjoyable with a buddy than without. Don’t have a buddy in the house with you? Fear not as there is online multiplayer to get your robot beat em up fix!

Features

There are a rang of different mechs to take a hold of. Like many fighting games, each character has their own play style, special moves and finishers. The environments that you fight in are totally destroyable too, therefore you’re able to completely obliterate entire cities on your quest to become the king of the mechs! Especially since your fists are the size of skyscrapers!

There are a total of 12 characters that you can play in and a whole host of famous cities to duke it out in. Such as Tokyo and San Francisco, countries also include Egypt and Mexico, quite the mix of environments!

As well as multiplayer users are also able to fight in co-op mode. Sounds weird doesn’t it? A co-op mode on a fighting game. Tag Team mode? Nope. Something very very different and very very cool, if we say so ourselves! In co-op mode 2-4 players take control of one part of a mech! Speaking of mechs, they are fully customizable to whatever you desire.

Story mode takes you along a journey to defeat the alien invasion and save the world, so you got to use the same drill-powered horns or old fashioned mouth lasers that you do to defeat your foes in multiplayer to help save the world in story mode.

(Override: Mech City Brawl)

First DLC

Following the launch of Override: Mech City Brawl, Stardust a downloadable DLC character, the games first post-launch DLC will bring this incredible mech to gamers. The mech has a penchant for posing extravagantly and kicking up hooves of steel, unleashing an all manner of aerial launches and sassy shooting stars.

Owners of the Super Mega Charged edition of Override: Mech City Brawl will get this character for free! As well as Stardust, any future mechs released, owners of the Super Mega Charged edition will also recieve them for free. If you purchased the normal edition it will cost you £3.29, Stardust will come to consoles on December 14th.

Overall this game is tons of fun and a very unique spin on the fighting genre. We especially liked the co-op mode and found it challenging yet tons of fun. If you’re looking for a breath of fresh air in the beat ’em up genre, look no further than Override: Mech City Brawl!
