  1. There's a lot of hype around FAU-G and it's finally coming out next week. We're still a few days away from the release date, but we now have a lot of info about FAU-G and what to expect from it when it officially comes out on January 26. The folks over at IGN India spoke to FAU-G developer Ncore Games Founder and Chairman Vishal Gondal, and Co-Founder and COO Ganesh Hande to learn more about it and here are some of the key points to note - ©Ncore Games No Battle Royale or Multiplayer Mode At Launch Ever since FAU-G was announced, everybody thought it was going to be a PUBG Mobile alternative and it'll have a battle royale mode. However, Ncore Games has confirmed that the game won't have a BR mode or even a multiplayer mode for that matter at launch. “We do want to be clear and we will also mention this in the game,” he says. “There will be battle royale mode and PvP [player versus player] modes, but they will clearly be labelled as ‘Coming Soon’," Vishal said. So when the game comes out, it'll have a story mode that stays true to the Galwan Valley setting. Ncore Games says we can expect more features and updates over the period of the next six to eight months. ©Ncore Games FAU-G Will Have Ads? Yes, FAU-G will have ads, however, they won't be of the kind that spams you all the time. Ncore Games says a player can watch an ad once or twice a day to get some currency to buy cosmetics. So yes, the game will also have cosmetics that'll eventually be tied to players' progression across different modes. The game will also have a battle pass but it won't be available at launch. Can Your Android Phones Run FAU-G? Ncore Games says that the game will come with support to set your graphics options between Ultra to low. So if a player thinks the game is lagging on his/her device, they can change the settings accordingly and try. The game will be capped at 60FPS even on devices with a higher refresh rate. You can check out the detailed write-up on IGN India to learn more about the game and be prepared to play it next week. We'll have more to talk about the game once it comes out, so be sure to stay tuned. View the full article
  2. If you were to tell me that the Hitman series would become one of my favourite stealth games of all time, I would not take you seriously. However, that’s exactly what IO interactive has managed to achieve with the third and final instalment of the modern Hitman series. I’ve been craving a Splinter Cell-like stealth game all of the last generation and Hitman 3 fulfilled my needs this time. Previous titles in the franchise were a bit goofy and lacked a compelling narrative that makes me care about the franchise. However, with Hitman 3, IO Interactive has managed to turn all of that around and delivered a Hitman game that also has a great storyline. © IO Interactive The Hitman series’ formula has not changed much from a decade ago, however the new games offer more freedom than ever before. Hitman 3 has a total of six missions and it's up to you how you want to go about them. Each mission starts with a briefing in the style of a Mission: Impossible movie and the first level even seems inspired by Ghost Protocol. While six missions may not sound like a great deal, each mission can be replayed to death with countless variables or styles of play. You can also play different levels in different modes to amp up the difficulty or completely change how a level can be played again. © IO Interactive To spice things up, IO Interactive have also included a level set in an old family mansion where you have to solve a murder mystery. You get to check out the secret passages and disguise yourself as a detective or sleuth. It is a big departure from Hitman’s traditional mechanics and how levels play out but we liked how it shakes up the traditional style of playing Hitman is known for. Every mission is different from each other and has been designed with painstaking detail, giving you the freedom to approach it in every manner possible. You can poison your target, go in guns blazing or come up with creative ways to eliminate your target. Much like thriller movies, the game takes you to different parts of the world with each mission. The first missions take place in a glamourous Dubai skyscraper while in another you might find yourself in a nightclub in Berlin. Each level offers something new that makes you want to replay missions and approach them differently each time. Each mission offers a different level of immersion that I truly did not expect from a Hitman game. IO Interactive has managed to craft levels that will be remembered until the franchise makes a return. © IO Interactive As we mentioned before, Hitman 3 is a huge departure from previous games where it tones down the goofiness and takes itself seriously. There’s an overarching story here which takes the game back to its roots instead of being a sandbox game. The story is quite intriguing and very much in line with spy movies you may have seen in the past decade. The plot of the game is mostly enjoyable, but some of the conspiracy tropes were quite predictable. Nevertheless, it still is a great story to experience in the end as it ends Agent 47’s story on a high note. © IO Interactive When it comes to the game mechanics, Hitman 3 has not expanded much, probably because there was nothing left to fix. The “don't fix it if it ain't broke” idiom is perfectly applicable here as every mechanic from the starting of the franchise is at your disposal here. While I would have liked to see some new gadgets thrown into the mix, we only get a smart camera that aids in achieving objectives, surveying your surroundings and solving puzzles. The new gadget doesn’t reinvent the wheel in any way or form, however it is a welcome addition to your arsenal. Apart from the new gadget addition, Hitman 3 is still very much a stealth game where you have to focus on sneaking past people, change disguises if suspected and hide bodies in closets like the previous game. It’s very much a sequel to Hitman 2 in terms of gameplay but this time around there is focus on the story as well. While the formula largely remains the same, you will experience some twists and unexpected moments that show us what future Hitman games can become. The Final VerdictHitman 3 is probably the best game in the new trilogy that puts more focus on the story while keeping the gameplay mechanics true to its roots. From exhilarating levels to beautiful graphics and a compelling story, Hitman 3 is the perfect send-off any franchise could get. View the full article
  3. Assassin’s Creed has known to become one of the biggest RPG franchises that are usually focused on different periods. The most recent instalment Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set during the Viking invasion of England. However, it seems like the next game will be exploring parts of India. © Ubisoft India has been featured in Assassin’s Creed previously in the form of a platforming game called Assassin's Creed Chronicles. However, it seems like the main line of games will now be shifting its focus to India. A new leak by a user on 4chan claims that the next Assassin’s Creed game will be set in 17th Century India, a period when European countries such as the British, French, Portuguese amongst others established their colonies in the region. © Ubisoft The leaker claims Ubisoft will be including all of present-day India, Bangladesh and part of Pakistan in its map and shared an image of the “draft map.” The game is said to focus on British East India Company and the Dutch East India company who will form a rivalry amongst each other. © 4Chan There was no mention of any form of naval gameplay; however it is worthy to point out that Naval gameplay has been a key mechanic in previous Assassin’s Creed games. Since India is a peninsular country, i.e surrounded by water from three sides; it would make sense to include some form of naval gameplay. Also, East India Company was able to establish a colony in India because of its advancements in naval navigation and superiority. Much like the new games, the game might let players choose a male or female protagonist in the game. It is currently not known whether the protagonist would be of Indian origin. Other leaks suggest the game will launch only on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series for console gamers and not be made available for the previous generation. © Ubisoft Ubisoft usually releases a new Assassin’s Creed game every two years and it seems unlikely this rumoured game will release anytime soon. Since Assassin’s Creed Valhalla released only a few months ago, there’s still time for the next instalment to release. Source: 4Chan View the full article
  4. We’ve all wanted a GTA-style game set in India and it seems like we will be finally getting our wishes true. ‘Mumbai Gullies’, an open-world game set in, well, Mumbai, is all set to launch for PC on Steam. Indian studio ‘GameEon Studios’ recently uploaded a trailer of the game that shows what we can expect from it. © GameEon Studios From the trailer, we can see the city of Mumbai brought to life with prominent locations such as Dalal Street, haphazard traffic and sweet foot vendors. The trailer showcases the graphics of the game which look quite impressive considering this is an independent game. The trailer launched with the description “a game inspired by the amazing contrast of life of Mumbai city. A city where the landscape changes every few meters. At one glance you could see towering skyscrapers and on the other glance you could see miles long slums.” At some point in the trailer, we see a red sedan, similar to what we see on the street of India, navigate itself from the chaotic traffic of Mumbai. Much like real life, the car comes very close to other vehicles and narrowly avoids collision; an experience many Indians have to go through in cities every day. © GameEon Studios Not much else is known about the game apart from the fact that it is an open-world first player experience. There is a good chance the game might explore the fictional criminal world of Mumbai similar to themes of Grand Theft Auto. Of course, we don’t expect the game to be on the same scale as GTA however it’s quite reassuring to see Indian game developers like ‘GameEon Studios’ develop games that could one day be at par with International AAA titles. If you want to see what the game is all about, you can check out the above trailer that showcases ‘Mumbai Gullies’ in full swing. A release for the game has not been unveiled as of now however the trailer did suggest it will be launching soon. In other news, FAU-G, a mobile game developed by Indian studio nCore games amassed over 4 million pre-registrations and is all set to launch on Republic Day. View the full article
  5. FAU-G is all set to launch in India next week on January 26 and the game has generated quite a bit of interest from Indian mobile players. So much so, the game crossed over 4 million pre-registrations before its release, highest for any game in India as reported by IGN India. Ncore’s founder and Chairman Vishal Gondal said the same in his recent interview with the outlet. © nCore-games “We've crossed over four million pre-registrations,” says Gondal. “And this is with not allowing some of the low-end devices to register.” The game amassed over 1 million pre-registrations within the first 24 hours of its listing on the Google Play Store. What’s impressive is that the game is still available for pre-registrations for budget smartphones which makes this feat even more of a big deal. “I will say that we will cross five million at least. Could be higher,” Gondal told IGN India. “But at five million I don't think so any other game, at least in India has got that kind of pre-registrations.” Once the game extends support to lower-end smartphones, we can expect the overall numbers to shoot up after the launch of the game. India’s smartphone market is currently dominated by budget-friendly smartphones that are powered by less powerful chipsets. Nevertheless, it shows that a huge number of people are excited and anticipating the launch of the game in about a week’s time. The iOS version of the game will be available at launch on 26th January. © nCore-games Earlier this month nCore games shared a teaser trailer for the game; however, it did not showcase the gameplay. The game will be following an episodic format where it was hinted in the trailer that the first episode will be about the Gulwan valley incident which was teased last year on Dusshera. The episode will show Indian soldiers battling the PLA troops. That’s all we know so far about the game so far. FAU-G was initially slated to launch in November 2020 but the release of the game has been marred with delays ever since. Having said that, the game will finally release on Republic Day in India provided there aren’t any last-minute delays. © nCore-games It is worthy to point out that FAU-G will not be a battle-royal game like PUBG Mobile and will be a single-player experience at launch.

  6. The third Test of the Border-Gavaskar trophy at the Sydney Cricket Ground turned out to be a nightmare outing for Australian cricket captain Tim Paine, who’s being questioned on merit for leading such a prestigious squad in red-ball cricket. Not being able to be of much value to the Australian batting lineup at the SCG, Paine’s trash-talking skills while behind the stumps dragged him into a lot of trouble, especially when he failed to glove a simple catch to dismiss Hanuma Vihari from the strike. Paine to Ashwin I can’t wait to get you to the Gabba. Just like you want to get to India? Maybe your last series. Are you a selector here as well? At least my teammates like me,dickhead. (Wade’s) got more Indian friends than you. Even your teammates think you’re a goose. #INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/LsLYnbMxAL — Jagadeesh Johnny (@JagadeeshJohnny) January 11, 2021 Former Indian skipper Sunil Gavaskar had opined that Paine must be removed from the captain’s spot at the end of the series. And now, it is Pakistani wicket-keeper batsman Kamran Akmal who’s joining the bandwagon and letting his thoughts on the Australian flow freely. “I am glad that Pakistan wasn’t playing there and he [Tim Paine] wasn’t in a Pakistan team or else they would have said so many things about him [Tim Paine],” Akmal said in a YouTube video. “Now, I will see what will be said by those people who have spoken about me at length. It was an interesting Test and the Australian side made a lot of efforts. They did not lose hope anywhere in the match that they could not win. This fighting attitude was their greatest asset,” he added. Reliving the moment when Paine had a very small but significant war of words with Ravichandran Ashwin and then went on to drop Vihari, Akmal said that very well could have been the final nail in the coffin for the Men in Blue but of course the Aussie failed to deliver. Vihari edges and a chance goes down late on the final day... Live coverage: https://t.co/xdDaedY10F #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/UdVjUmKYrS — cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) January 11, 2021 “Australia would have been celebrating a win if they had taken their catches. This did not happen, however. The fielding did not allow this to happen. You can have good and bad days on the field. The speciality of the Australian side is that they do not make many mistakes. They made all their mistakes in a single day. Tim Paine had a very bad outing. This happens. Every keeper drops catches but what can we say,” concluded Akmal. View the full article
  7. Ishaan Khatter, ever since he ventured into Bollywood, has ensured that his sartorial style gets noticed every time he is papped. And, just like so many other B-towners who go big on sneakers, Ishaan too, is a massive sneakerhead, we would say. From wearing the most confusing pair of sneakers to turning heads in his Uptempo shoes, he knows how to present his collectables in the most stylish ways. © Viral Bhayani Ishaan recently made an appearance where he was seen acing the athleisure trend, courtesy his oversized hoodie. But, a look below, and you will notice the intriguing element here - his sneakers, that are edgy and quite unconventional. Take a look: © Nike These sneakers are not very expensive and cost approximately Rs 7,496. This series of sneakers, in particular, has become a big deal at the moment in B-town as more and more celebs are donning this style. View the full article

  9. It seems like Krafton, the company behind PUBG, is working on a sequel to the popular battle royale game. According to reports by Korean outlet MTN, the sequel is currently under development. The report also added a mobile version of the game is also currently under development. PUBG Mobile is currently the highest-earning game in the world and is breaking all records even after its ban in India. It would be interesting to see if matters between the Indian authorities and Krafton improves before the sequel is released. It is worth noting that the PC and console port of PUBG has not been banned in India and is accessible via Steam and digital stores. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The report by the Korean outlet referred to the new game that is being developed as ‘Battlegrounds’ and ‘Battlegrounds mobile’ instead of PUBG and PUBG Mobile respectively. The website also detailed that a cross multi-platform title for PC and console is under development alongside a mobile port as well. “From the first half of last year, PUBG has been developing a new mobile game [named] ‘Project XTRM’ based on the worldview of ‘Battleground'[PUBG] .” The concept of this new game has been labelled as ‘Battleground Mobile 2’ or PUBG Mobile 2.0” the report said. The report also went on to state that “there was a team that was preparing a new PC/console platform for the ‘Battleground’ IP in Krafton, and this team was transferred to PUBG at the beginning of last year. We are in full swing, but if the game is successfully developed and completed, it is highly likely to be named ‘Battle Ground 2’” © Reddit As of now, there is no official name for the sequel but there is a good chance that it might be called “PUBG Mobile 2.0.” The sequel might introduce new maps, weapons and mechanics that are not present in the current game. However, it would be interesting to see if the sequel improves upon the gameplay and make it a smoother experience than before. © PUBGEsports/Twitter The game has been riddled with cheaters and hackers that have caused the game’s popularity dip on PC and consoles. The newer version of PUBG Mobile could also be bigger than the predecessor however not much is known about the mobile sequel of the game. PUBG Mobile India is already facing many hurdles in India as the company has not been granted permission to make the game available officially in the country. If PUBG Mobile 2.0 is indeed developed by Tencent Games again, there’s a good chance the sequel might also face similar hurdles in the future. Source: MTN View the full article
  10. JoJo Siwa says that is she is "really, really, really, upset" after finding out about the board game's questions
  11. One of the complaints that a lot of people have with Cyberpunk 2077 is the fact that the game doesn't support third-person mode. Everything you do in the game is in first-person except for when you hop into a vehicle. CD Projekt Red did that for an immersive experience, although we think an option to least let people switch between mode would have been great. But you know what? The modding community has got you covered. Yes, a lot of mods have already started pouring in for the game. And one of them actually lets you play the game in third-person. Well, the mod is still in the early stages of development, so it's not entirely perfect just yet. It seems to be working but the experience isn't ideal. The game is clearly not designed to be played in a third-person perspective, which is why the characters and their movements are a bit wonky. You can check out IGN's video here to see exactly what we're talking about. As you can see, the mods seem to be very unstable for now but it's being worked on and the community is expecting better results from it soon. Currently, the character movements are wonky and they show weird animations to compensate for the rapid movements. The mod devs will have to add custom animations for the movements and we think it'll take quite some time to do that. That being said, we're glad that the game is already seeing an active modding community, which we think will only help keep the game alive. © MensXP More than these mods though, people are currently waiting for CD Projekt Red to fix the bugs in the game. The game is unplayable on older console versions and a fix for that is expected to drop soon. Stay tuned to our Cyberpunk 2077 page to learn more about the game. View the full article
  12. A horror game called Devotion was set to release on CD Projekt Red’s digital storefront GOG. However, the plan had to be cancelled due to Chinese censorship. In fear of facing retribution from the Chinese government, GOG cancelled its plans to host the game on its storefront as the game had some controversial content. © Reuters Players in the game found content that referred to Xi Jinping, the president of China, as a “Winnie-the-Pooh moron.” It’s no news that the Chinese president and the CCP are quite sensitive to the cartoon bear as any images of the bear have been banned on Chinese social media. ‘Winnie the pooh’ has been used as a comparison by memers which has been notoriously referenced by other personalities such as John Oliver and recent movies like ‘Christopher Robin’. Earlier today, it was announced that the game Devotion is coming to GOG. After receiving many messages from gamers, we have decided not to list the game in our store. — GOG.COM (@GOGcom) December 16, 2020 The game has been produced by Taiwanese developer Red Candle Games who have been at the centre of censorship controversy ever since the game was released. This is not the first time the Chinese Government has flexed its blanket power to dictate censorship in games, movies and other forms of popular media. PUBG Mobile, the popular battle-royale game made by the Chinese company Tencent Games was also found censoring what people could say in the game as well. © Share America Apps like TikTok have also blocked accounts of users in the past who have previously made content that talks about China’s controversial “detention camps.” Last year, Activision Blizzard banned a Hong Kong-based player from a professional tournament known as “Blitzchung” for his statement during a post-match interview, “Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our time.” Tencent Holdings was the real reason behind Ng being stripped of his winnings and being banned from competing as the company owns 10% of Activision Blizzard. In the case of ‘Devotion’, it seems like GOG and other platforms do not want to sell the game to avoid backlash from the Chinese government. Both storefronts operate in China and in order to appease the Chinese government and maintain their presence in a major market, companies often avoid taking risks with controversial games. The simplest solution to this problem is not selling the game in the Chinese region, however GOG chose to remove it from the worldwide store altogether. Here’s how the world reacted to GOG’s decision to give in to Chinese censorship: *After receiving threats from the Chinese Communist Party, we have decided not to list the game in our store. Fixed that for you. https://t.co/Bw7cFfOcfw — Oliver Jia (オリバー·ジア) (@OliverJia1014) December 16, 2020When a country so great and strong they aim to literally eradicate a video game on earth and @CDPROJEKTRED @GOGcom decide to join them Gamer friendly my a$$ https://t.co/w5r82rL75l — w 🦋️ (@whk8964) December 16, 2020Everyone who complains about censorship in games needs to be taking a long, hard look at this situation. A Taiwanese company can't publish their game on any major platform because of one obtuse (long-removed) reference to China's president THIS is what real censorship looks like https://t.co/AldEYfVzNP — Jon Riesenbach P5 Scramble (@moriyoshijon) December 16, 2020Good job GOG, good job.

  13. PUBG Mobile has experienced a rocky 2020 but it doesn’t seem like the game is going to slow down anytime soon. In fact, PUBG Mobile was the highest earning mobile game this year with over $2 billion in revenues followed by other games such as Honor of Kings, Pokémon GO, Coin Master, and Roblox with earnings exceeding $1 billion. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla PUBG Mobile’s earnings included the combined revenue from the Chinese version Game for Peace that raked in $2.6 billion. The game experienced an increase of 64.3 percent from last year even though it was banned in one of its biggest markets for the better half of 2020. Pokemon Go still continues to earn over $1 billion which is quite impressive as the game relies on augmented reality features that encourage users to venture out in the real world. It is especially impressive as players of the game were confined to their homes because of the COVID-19 pandemic, following which new features were introduced that adapted to the new normal. © Sensor Tower The insights come from Sensor Tower, an organisation that analyses and researches the global app economy each year. The list does not break down revenue according to iOS and Google Play users. “PUBG Mobile, combined with the Chinese localisation of the title, Game For Peace, is the No. 1 revenue-generator globally across the App Store and Google Play in 2020, accumulating close to $2.6 billion since the start of the year, up 64.3 percent from 2019,” the report said. © Retuers It would be interesting to see how much money PUBG Mobile lost in terms of revenue due to the ban of the game in India. Having said that, these figures also show that spending by Indian gamers in the game were not significant enough to even put a dent on the overall revenue generated by the popular battle-royal game. The game garnered the highest revenues even without its Indian users. PUBG Mobile is expected to make a return to the Indian market soon, however it is currently facing hurdles from the Indian Government as explained here. Source: Sensor Tower View the full article
  14. I’m not a big fan of free-to-play games whose entire business model is dependent on micro-transactions or in-app purchases. In fact, many addictive games on the Play Store and App Store make use of tactics that encourage children and gamers to spend more in their game to gain progress or an advantage over other players. In one of the more shocking cases, a report by New York Post shows how vulnerable children can be to these “in-app” purchases. A six-year-old boy ended up spending over $16,000 or Rs 11 lakh of his parent’s money in an iPhone game which went unnoticed. In fact, the child used in-app purchases on Sega’s Sonic Forces for buying in-game currency that can be redeemed to unlock items and even levels. The parents noticed a series of withdrawals made by a credit card which totalled $16,293.10. Charges ranged from $1.99 to $99.99 for bundles and in one instance, the child spent over $2,500 or Rs 1.8 lakh in a single day. © Apple Most free games now use some form in-app purchases that usually don’t yield expected results, making people make further purchases. It’s a vicious cycle that games employ to get the most money out of their players that have proven to be highly lucrative. Some games let players buy loot boxes for virtual items, however these loot boxes do not reveal their contents in advance. Some countries have viewed these loot boxes as a game of chance and treat it as another form of gambling. After the parents discovered these transactions were not fraud and indeed genuine, they described the incident as if "It's like my 6-year-old was doing lines of cocaine - and doing bigger and bigger hits," the mother said. © Sega Apple refused to refund the amount as it was not claimed within 60 days of the charge. Apple does offer Parent Control options to manage and limit spending on family accounts, however in this case, the mother was unaware of these features. Parental Control features let users limit purchases and even access to apps on iPhones that are part of the same iCloud family. The mother accused the game of being “completely predatory” which encourages children to spend more. “What grownup would spend $100 on a chest of virtual gold coins?” she asked. These predatory tactics are not only limited to casual games as we’ve seen instances in India that also led to people stealing from family members for spending money in PUBG.

  15. For someone who has been tipped as MS Dhoni's successor, Rishabh Pant has blown hot and cold in his brief international career. The left-hander showed promise early in his career, but the past 14 months haven't really convinced anyone. His mediocre outing in the thirteenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) was the most recent testimony to the batsman's slump in form. Managing to score a mere 343 runs in 14 matches, Pant was a noticeable problem in the Delhi Capitals batting line-up. While his poor IPL 2020 run earned him flak, it eventually saw him getting dropped from India's limited-overs squad for the tour of Australia. As India went on to lose the ODI series before winning the T20Is duel, Pant seems to have worked on his batting which was quite prevalent in their tour game. © Twitter/@BCCI After getting dismissed for just five runs in the first innings, Pant looked like a man on a mission when he walked out to bat in the second innings against Australia A. The left-hander was at his menacing best, clubbing the opposition all around the park during his unbeaten 73-ball 103, which was laced with nine fours and six sixes, at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). The Delhi lad was batting on 81, that came off just 67 balls, when Jack Wildermuth ran in to bowl the final over of the second day's play. The right-arm seamer surprised Pant on the first delivery with his pace and bounce before hitting him in the ribs. But, despite the blow, the Indian wicket-keeper responded with great intent, clobbering the Aussie for 22 runs (4,4,6,44) off the final five deliveries of the over. While handing Wildermuth a pasting thoroughly showcased Pant's regained confidence and self-belief in his batting abilities, it also propelled him to a blazing hundred which, in turn, bolstered his case for selection ahead of Wriddhiman Saha in India's playing XI for the Adelaide Test. Not picked in ODI series. Not picked in T20 series. Failed in first innings. Brings up hundred from just 73 balls in the second innings, Pant is freak. pic.twitter.com/SXikQKmHNG — Johns. (@CricCrazyJohns) December 12, 2020 Pant's return to form is a much-needed boost for India who face the biggest test of their tour in the four-match Test series. If playing the Aussies in their own backyard poses a challenge, the fact that India have noticeable omissions in their squad, needless to mention captain Virat Kohli's absence after the 1st Test owing to a paternity leave, further makes theirs a tough situation. Update: At the end of the 1st session on Day 2, India are 111-2 after 27 overs and lead Australia A by 197 runs. M Agarwal - 38* S Gill - 65 M Steketee - 1/33 pic.twitter.com/HNVZNR8k0H — BCCI (@BCCI) December 12, 2020 Apart from Pant, India and their fans had more to cheer for as the likes of Shubman Gill and Mayank Agarwal, too, looked in good touch during the warm-up match. Gill did look good in the first innings, but his 65-run knock in the second innings looked more convincing. Mayank also managed to overcome his anxiety from the first-innings failure with better application and temperament during a 61-run knock in the second innings. ??! We have the first centurion of the three-day pink ball game and it is @Hanumavihari who completes a fine century! ???? India 339/4 and lead Australia A by 425 runs. pic.twitter.com/JgJETSLp5r — BCCI (@BCCI) December 12, 2020 In the middle-order, Hanuma Vihari also looked solid during his unbeaten ton. Carefully negotiating the testing conditions, Vihari did really well to convert his start into a three-digit score. The right-hander was patient for the right deliveries to play his shot. And his picture-perfect on-drive was a treat to watch. Gill's solid performance has given India an alternative at the opening slot, especially with Prithvi Shaw struggling to get going. The Mumbai batsman did score a 29-ball 40 in the first innings, but his inability to avoid risky and aerial shots spelled Pant's doom as he could only score three runs in the second innings. With Gill looking good, India might fancy replacing him with Shaw at the top to partner Mayank. With the 1st Test slated to begin from 17th December, India will be desperate to fix the gaping holes in the team in a bid to outsmart the hosts at the Adelaide Oval. While the Indian team management might still be considering all options before finalising the best-possible playing XI, the likes of Pant, Vihari, Gill and Mayank hitting the ground running will surely make them feel better.

  16. In 2017, when Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) shelled out a staggering Rs 3 crore to secure the services of Thangarasu Natarajan. the life of a daily wage labourer's son, who was earlier taking up odd jobs to deliver newspaper and milk, had changed in a day. But, rather than getting complacent with newly-found fame, Natarajan knew it was only the beginning of what could very well be an inspirational journey. On the back of his unrelenting hard work and dedication towards the sport, Natarajan, in a matter of three years, has not only become one of the most influential bowlers in the shortest format, but also cricket-obsessed India's new hero. Thank you brother https://t.co/rljZUvMKGY — Natarajan (@Natarajan_91) December 8, 2020 As noticed in the limited-overs series against Australia, Natarajan got off to a brilliant start in his international career which has bolstered his chances of making the cut for India's squad for the T20 World Cup next year. While his ability to bowled a disciplined line, needless to mention the toe-crushing yorkers and cunning variations have earned him plaudits form cricket pundits and fans alike, it appears that, after acing the test on the field, Natarajan has visibly upped his style game off it. First series win for my country Meorable and special ️ #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/18YBdW43cd — Natarajan (@Natarajan_91) December 7, 2020During India's ongoing tour of Australia, the left-arm seamer has been as active on social media as he has been on the field. From sharing thoughts on his debut, donning the national colours for the first time to revelling in the success of India's series win, Natarajan has shown many emotions in the recent past on social media. "Sydney"fied 🇦🇺 pic.twitter.com/qw4zQcfyMj — Natarajan (@Natarajan_91) December 10, 2020 But, his latest post is all about taking a backseat from the drama on the playing field and going sightseeing with an easy-going look. Taking to Twitter, the Tamil Nadu speedster shared a couple of photos where he was seen enjoying his time exploring the beautiful city of Sydney. Sporting the classic 'white-tee-blue-denims' combo, Natarajan looked super comfortable, yet classy, in a visibly raised style game. © Twitter/@Natarajan_91 Following a brilliant performance in the recently-concluded limited-overs series, Natarajan drew praise from captain Kohli who feels he can be an asset for Team India in the 2021 T20 World Cup. "Natarajan - special mention to him because in the absence of [Mohammed] Shami and Bumrah, he's been the guy who has stood up and really delivered under pressure which is outstanding for the fact that he's playing his first few games at the international level," Kohli said after the 3rd T20I. "He's very composed, very sure of what he wants to do. He's a very hardworking guy, very humble guy, and you feel happy for guys who are committed and working hard for the team when they get the results and make the team win. So, I wish him all the best and I hope that he continues to work hard on his game and continues to get better because a left-arm bowler is always an asset for any team. So, if he can bowl that well consistently it will be a great thing for us heading into the (T20) World Cup next year," the Indian skipper added. View the full article
  17. Cyberpunk 2077 is now available to play for everyone and the game is already breaking records for a single-player game, at least on ‘Steam’. Previously the record was held by Fallout 4 for most concurrent players in a single-player game with 472,962 gamers playing it at launch. Cyberpunk 2077 has now beaten that record with over 1,000,000 concurrent players on Steam. © MensXP While over a million people were playing the game on Steam there were bound to be more players as Cyberpunk 2077 is available on other platforms such as GOG, Epic, GeForce Now and Stadia. The game is also available on consoles which means Cyberpunk 2077 might just be the most played game in the world right now. While writing this news piece, Cyberpunk 2077 had beaten PUBG and other popular games such as Among Us for the most concurrent players right now. PUBG currently holds the record for the most players in a game on Steam with 3,257,248 people simultaneously trying their luck getting a chicken dinner. However, the game has now seen a huge drop in the number of players today due to lack of support and general interest in the game. © CD Projekt Red Cyberpunk 2077 is now available across all platforms including different launchers on PC. If you are interested to know what the game is all about, check out our spoiler-free review in detail here. If you will be playing the game on Steam, you may face slow download speeds due to congestion. We advise you to change your region by going to Steam>Settings>Downloads. If you’re in Asia, we recommend switching to the Malaysia region if you want full download speeds for updates at the time being.

  18. We've said this multiple times in the past and we'll say it again - Cyberpunk 2077 is the most anticipated game of the year and nothing comes close. A lot of people, regardless of whether they're gamers or not, have got their eyes locked in on this game and the hype is insane right now. It seems like some people got their copies early and we've started seeing eBay listings for the game. Yes, eBay listings for a video game that's not officially out yet and it's very, very expensive. The listings are at a 900-per cent markup. Here, check it out - © eBay In case you are wondering, these are the copies that were likely shipped early by the retailers. This isn't the first time a game has reached early to consumers, but it's Cyberpunk 2077 so people are just trying to make money off it instead of enjoying it earlier than everyone else. We really hope people don't buy them. For one, it's super expensive. Also, why not wait for two more days and play it at the same time as everyone else and experience it together? © CD Projekt Red And in case you are planning to buy it or know someone who is, then please ask them not to stream it or put out content online to spoil the game for others. It's one of the most anticipated games of all time that's been in the making for almost a decade and we'd hate to see all the efforts behind it go to waste. There's nothing fun about ruining a game like Cyberpunk 2077, so let's not do it. © CD Projekt Red Look, the road to Cyberpunk 2077 has been a long one and the wait has been nothing but exhausting. We get it. But the wait will get over on December 10 and we'll get our hands on the game. Let's just play it to our heart's content on the release date and enjoy it as much as we can. In the meantime, you can read our first impressions of the game right here. View the full article
  19. Cyberpunk 2077 was hyped up to be not only the game of the year but possibly the game of this decade as well. While I did try to seep myself separate from the hype associated with this game, I won’t shy away from saying Cyberpunk 2077 has far exceeded my expectations. In many ways, Cyberpunk 2077 feels like a genre-defining game that will be remembered by fans for a very long time. I’ve played about 22 hours as I’ve been messing around in the Night City doing side missions, gigs, and soaking in the glistening neon-filled world. This is a massive game and there was no way I could have finished Cyberpunk 2077 in time for the global embargo. However, that does not mean we cannot talk about the game and what we think so far. Do keep in mind everything we talk about below is spoiler-free and only talks about my initial impressions of the game based on over 20 hours of in-game time. © CDProjekt Red_MesXP In our 22 hours of gameplay time, the story so far has been quite action-packed and filled with emotions. The opening sequence of the game is fairly long, filled with tutorials and basic introductions to the complex RPG mechanics. You will learn the ropes gradually until the very end of the first act of the game. The main title screen does not even appear at least five hours into the main campaign. I chose to play the ‘Street Kid’ life path for my first playthrough as I wanted to experience ‘Night City’ from the get-go and trust me when I see say this - it was a sight to behold. So far, the story has been exceptional and I haven’t come across even one boring moment. Most of the game’s presentation is very cinematic where the gameplay flawlessly switches from gameplay to set pieces without you even realising it. © CDProjekt Red_MesXP I’m not going to be talking much about the story as yet, however I will say that every decision you make matters. Your decisions are the most important aspect in the context of the overall story and you shouldn’t take it lightly. Some choices will come from conversations while others might just surprise you. CD Projekt Red has masterfully implemented consequences and gains that might creep up at the most unexpected moment. Due to a plethora of choices available and its first-person nature, the game truly makes the experience feel like a personal journey. I haven’t come across a game like this in a long time that sets a new benchmark for immersion. © CDProjekt Red_MesXP Speaking of immersion, the world crafted by CD Projekt Red is by far the most detailed environment we’ve ever seen in a game. The futuristic metropolis looks and feels and sounds like a melange of Tokyo, Singapore and Hong Kong, although with a futuristic vibe. The world is populated just like you would expect from a dense city like Tokyo, filled with NPCs who are strolling the streets of Night City and going about their day. There will be times you will be visiting markets that genuinely feel overcrowded and you may have to trade through a hoard of NPCs to get to your destination. Night City truly feels like a lived-in city with beautiful skylines and city centres that can give real-world cities a run for their money. Even most of the character models of NPCs look extremely detailed, realistic and at par with what we’ve seen in previews. © CDProjekt Red_MesXP The case remains the same while driving vehicles as you will often find yourself stuck in a traffic jam or drive through narrow streets much like in real life. Each car feels and handles differently which is along the lines of GTA V albeit slightly better. You can hijack cars as well, however it works a bit differently than GTA V. You can only hijack cars depending on how many points you’ve invested in your ‘Strength’ attribute, which makes you want to improve your character further if you want the ability to hijack better cars. © CDProjekt Red_MesXP Now let’s talk about the combat system as it is by far, the most important aspect of the game. Cyberpunk 2077 is mostly a first-person shooter, reminiscent of games like The Outer Worlds and the Fallout series. Having said that, the combat mechanic feels a lot more polished and smooth as compared to the aforementioned games. Even melee combat feels more comprehensive than anything we’ve experienced before. We’ve seen rumours online about Cyberpunk 2077’s enemy AI where it puts the intelligence of NPCs into question. In my experience, on normal difficulty, there were times I got picked off by enemies in a single shot because I chose to approach some missions head first. Enemies in this game can be unforgiving and taking a more cautious approach is recommended. Being a CD Projekt Red game, Cyberpunk 2077 is filled with complex RPG systems that you get to play around with as soon as you start the game. You will end up collecting different types of mods to enhance your weapons or buy and install cybernetic mods from a local ‘ripperdoc’. We will talk more in detail about the RPG mechanics and how these systems play a role in character progression as a part of our full review soon. © CDProjekt Red_MesXP Since I have not finished the game yet, I am not going to give a final verdict as of now and instead just gave an overview of the game’s performance so far. In my 22 hour playthrough, I have not come across any major bugs or performance issues until now with exception of one hard crash. It is important to let you know that I have been playing the ‘pre-release’ build of the game and there will be stability improvements as a part of the day-one patch. © CDProjekt Red_MesXP I am currently playing the PC version of the game on my RTX 2080Ti GPU and will be switching to the RTX 3090 for the rest of the game. In my experience, the game runs flawlessly at 60 frames per second with the high ray-tracing mode turned on at 1440p resolution. After uncapping the frame rates, Cyberpunk 2077 was running around 135-140 FPS with RTX turned on and will test the game in 4K resolution on the RTX 3090 for our review. I have not tested the game on any of the consoles as of yet but will be running it on the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 4 as soon as I get my hands on the physical copies on launch day. Conclusion © CDProjekt Red_MesXP Cyberpunk 2077 has already set a new standard for open-world role-playing games and immersion in my opinion. It is the most detailed world I’ve ever come across that gives GTA V a run for its money and may have just set a template for future games to come. If you were to ask me my current score, I would give it a 9/10, keeping one point in reserve in case I come across any game-breaking bug or because of an unsatisfactory ending. View the full article
