  1. Are you, just like us, waiting for the second season of 'Sacred Games'? Well, then you'll be glad to know that the makers have something special to keep you at ease until the show finally goes on air. Netflix India has dropped the character posters of Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Saif Ali Khan. If you have seen the first season, you would by now be dying to know how the story of Ganesh Gaitonde and Sartaj Singh unfolds. Going by their character posters, we can guess that this time, it will be more intense, dark and gritty. It's not a hidden fact that Nawazuddin did an exemplary job in portraying the character as intense like Gaitonde in the first season, so it goes without saying that he will come through with more power in the second season. Nawaz took to Twitter to share his look poster and wrote, "Pichli baar kya bola tha Ganesh bhai ko ? Aukaaat...!!! #GaneshGaitonde2.0 @SacredGames_TV @NetflixIndia @anuragkashyap72." In the poster, Nawaz is all suited and booted unlike the previous season. He will be taking us through his life's journey and how he became the Mumbai's kingpin in season two. We all know that Nawaz leaves no stone unturned to make his character look 100 per cent convinving onscreen. Check out the tweet here: Pichli baar kya bola tha Ganesh bhai ko ? Aukaaat...!!!#GaneshGaitonde2.0@SacredGames_TV @NetflixIndia @anuragkashyap72 pic.twitter.com/w25bHGQ9Ta — Nawazuddin Siddiqui (@Nawazuddin_S) May 10, 2019 The makers have also shared the poster of Saif and he has an injured hand which adds to the curiosity of what would be there in store for us and the viewers. The second season has been helmed by Anurag Kashyap and Neeraj Ghaywan. Ghaywan has replaced Vikramaditya Motwane and it will be interesting to see how he takes the story forward. © Netflix A while back, the promo of 'Sacred Games' 2 was released. Two new actors Kalki Koechlin and Ranvir Shorey have been introduced. Pankaj Tripathi or 'Guruji' will be seen playing an important role in this season. See the promo here: Season 2 is coming. Put your chattris in the air. #SacredGamesS2 pic.twitter.com/1ACW0eVGDe — Netflix India (@NetflixIndia) May 6, 2019 Are you excited to witness this roller-coaster ride? Let us know in the comments section below!
  2. 'Sacred Games' is one of those shows that's highly appreciated for its dark and gritty content. Fans went into the tizzy after they saw the first season and now, they are waiting with bated breath for the second season as well. Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte did a brilliant job in portraying their director's vision throughout the series. And for those who have seen the first season, they would now be looking forward to knowing the story of Ganesh Gaitonde and how Sartaj Singh decodes it all. With fans clamouring for the second season to air already, we tried to find some exclusive details regarding just that. According to one of our sources, the show will start streaming online from July end or the first week of August. Another source gave us more exclusive details about the show being delayed saying, "Netflix is going through it again and that's why the delay. It seems like the platform isn't happy with the final outcome. Rumours suggest that this season isn't that great as the first one. Well, only time will tell if the audience likes the show or not but we all have high hopes." The show has been shot in India and foreign locations including Cape Town. Anurag Kashyap has yet again taken charge for Nawazuddin's portions, and 'Masaan' director Neeraj Ghaywan has replaced Vikramaditya Motwane to direct Sartaj Singh's part. Are you excited for the new season for the show? Let us know in the comments below.
  3. A gaming mouse is easily one of the most recognizable gadgets in the world. From an exaggerated design with sharp corners to flashy RGB lighting, they're distinctly visible. Buying a gaming mouse, however, isn't an easy task. There are tons of factors to consider. Well, don't worry. We've gathered together some of the best gaming mice that are out there. No matter what kind of games you're into, we're sure you'll find the best gaming mouse for your needs here on our list. Logitech G502 Hero © YouTube The Logitech G502 Hero, as you can see, clearly screams gaming from any angle you look at. It's got RGB lighting, a ton of customizable buttons, 1ms latency, a jaw-dropping 16,000 DPI sensor, etc. However, this is one of those gaming mice, which you can comfortably use even when you are not gaming. Yes, it comes with adjustable weights, which you can swap out anytime when you're, say, doing a more casual task like browsing the web. Just like the Logitech G402, this one's also not for users with big hands though. But other than that, the Logitech G502 Hero is extremely popular and it's easily one of the best gaming mice out there. Price: Rs. 4,295 HyperX Pulsefire Surge © YouTube This particular gaming mouse from HyperX, a brand that's known for its headsets and other gaming accessories, is definitely worth considering if you're on the lookout for a new gaming mouse. It's a well-designed mouse that's packed with a ton of awesome features like the 16,000 DPI sensor. As we said in our review, it's very comfortable to use, both while playing games or otherwise. It natively supports Windows shortcuts and comes with cool RGB lighting. Above all, the HyperX Pulsefire Surge is easy on the pocket compared to the ones that cost upwards of Rs. 10,000. Price: Rs. 4,799 Razer Deathadder Elite © YouTube The Razer Deathadder Eite is an all-rounder when it comes to gaming mice. It comes in a simple and fantastic shape that's perfect for all sorts of grips and hand sizes. Be it for playing games, editing photos, or simply browsing the internet, the Razer Deathadder Elite won't let you down. Like, seriously. It uses a 16,000 CPI optical sensor which has 99.4% resolution accuracy and a 450 IPS rating. All the technical terms aside, it just means that this mouse will provide flawless tracking at all times. It also comes with two perfectly placed, generously sized thumb buttons. They prove to be good for all types of grips, be it palm, claw, or tip. Price: Rs. 3,899 Steelseries Sensei 310 © Steelseries The Steelseries Sensei 310 is an ambidextrous mouse, which means it's good for both left and right-handed users. It's also grippier than most other mice, which is always good for playing games. Just like its predecessor, the Sensei 310 comes with really good sensors, so you don't have to worry about any tracking issues. Since the Sensei 310 is ambidextrous, you'll get a pair of identical thumb buttons on the left and the right. Don't worry though, the shape and size of this particular mouse has been tweaked since the last one to avoid any accidental clicks. Overall, the Steelseries Sensei 310 is a really good small, light and ambidextrous mouse, which you can rely on. Price: 4,599 CORSAIR M65 Pro © YouTube The Corsair M65 Pro is a fantastic mouse for competitive FPS gaming. The highlight of this particular mouse has to be the 'Sniper' button, which essentially lowers the DPI while holding it down. Lower the DPI, the more easily you'll be able to maintain your aim at the target. It's really great for users with a claw grip, but even palm grip users will find it very compelling. The Corsair M65 Pro, just like some other mice in our list, comes with tunable weights, which can be accessed by removing the screws on the bottom. You can dislodge between one and three 6-gram weights, giving the mouse an overall mass that's between 97 grams and 115 grams. Price: 3,599
  4. Racing games are one of the most popular forms of time-pass when you want to keep yourself entertained. This is especially true when you game on your smartphone. There's a plethora of racing games on the App Store and Play Store which makes it confusing for people to know which one is the best. Some games are casual enough to keep you busy for a while, and some premium driving experiences that are very close to console level graphics. Here are five of our favourite racing games for your smartphones. 1. Absolute Drift If you love drifting and want to play a game specifically designed for that experience, look no further than Absolute Drift. The game requires you to practise a bit if you need to get the perfect drift around those corners. If you happen to own a compatible controller, the experience is even better and rewarding. The game is available on both iOS and Android so you can play this game on the platform of your choice. 2. Asphalt 9: Legends This is a free-to-play game that's available on both iOS and Android digital stores and has microtransactions inbuilt. The game provides a more realistic approach to the game when compared to previous installations. Gameplay is exciting and full of energy, a combination you always expect from an arcade racing game. 3. Rush Rally 3 If you're a fan of rally racing, we would suggest downloading 'Rush Rally 3' as it is your best option for smartphones right now. Available on both iOS and Google Play, the game is quite challenging and is full rally racing simulator. Even though the game has touch controls, we suggest you use a Bluetooth controller to play this game for the best experience. 4. Red Bull Air Race 2: The Mobile Game 'Red Bull Air Race 2' is probably the only game you want to download if you love air-racing. The game recreates raced Red Bull hosts around the globe and you get to control you own very plane. Eat course is a real-life recreation of the actual tournament. 5. GRID Autosport This game is actual proof that console-level racing games can be ported to smartphones and deliver almost the same experience. The original game first came to consoles and PC and is now available for smartphones. This is proof that AAA racing games can be handled easily by top-tier smartphones.
  5. Apple Arcade is now official and the gaming service by the Cupertino giant is going to host a range of games that deliver great narratives and casual gaming at the same time. Every game will be playable on a range of Apple devices like the iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and macOS. Each game will be playable offline which is quite different from what Google plans to offer with Stadia Each game that is bundled with Apple Arcade will be handpicked by the Cupertino Giant along with games that will be co-funded by the company. Most of these games will take advantage of Apple's A12/A12x Bionic chip to deliver a seamless experience. We decided to detail every game that we know about that will be coming to Apple's gaming service: 1. Team Sonic Racing © Sega 'Team Sonic Racing' is a kart racing game similar to 'Mario Kart' and has been in development for every console out there. Having said that, the game will also be coming to Apple Arcade where it will run with similar performance as its counterparts. Team Sonic Racing is a third-person racing game that will have power-ups, drifting and tricks. It also has co-operative gameplay which will be one of the marquee features of the game. Players will be able to play games offline with their friends in offline mode with local multiplayer support. 2. Fantasian © Apple This game is being developed by Hironobu Sakaguchi, the Japanese developer who has also been responsible for many 'Final Fantasy' games in the past. The game is currently under development and has been made using 3D dioramas from real life. These dioramas are imported into the game and are being used as actual playable levels. 3. Oceanhorn 2: Knights Of The Lost Realm © YouTube If you loved the 'Zelda' series, 'Oceanhorn 2: Knights Of The Lost Realm' is probably going to be your go-to RPG adventure game on Apple Arcade. The sequel has better graphics than its predecessor, more exploring, sword fighting and loots to discover. The first title in the series is already a fan favourite and it seems like the second game will be the star attraction of Apple Arcade. 4. The Artful Escape © YouTube The Artful Escape was initially going to be an exclusive for Xbox One and PC, however, it seems like the game will also make its way to Apple Arcade. The game was shown off at the reveal event and is one of the most beautiful platforms anticipated this year. The game is about a musician who is on a path to discover more art and music during his journey. Expect some awesome music and art style as the teasers already look awesome. 5. Yaga © Romanian Game Developers Association 'Yaga' is already available to play on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, however, the game will also be a part of Apple's new gaming service. It's a traditional third-person action RPG that has a unique art style and a compelling narrative. The game also features choice-based narrative which makes 'Yaga' one of the most exciting titles coming to the Apple Arcade. 6. The Bradwell Conspiracy © Steam This game is very reminiscent of 'Firewatch' where your character will interact with the environment to reveal the narrative of the game. It's a first-person adventure game where you need to escape from a facility where you are stuck due to a disastrous explosion. Your only point of contact is a fellow survivor called Amber where you must escape together by interacting with each other. 7. Enter The Construct © Apple This game is probably one of the more serious hardcore shooter games that are based in a sci-fi world. The game is currently under development for the platform. We don't know much about this game, however, the game does look like a promising title for the platform. 8. Hitchhiker © Hitchiker Game Yet another action adventure game that got us excited because of its simplicity and art style. You play the character of a hitchhiker where you will discover more information about yourself as you play through the story. You will interact with random drivers and discover about yourself through conversations and random items you find in the world. Apple Arcade will launch this fall as many of these games are still under development. There are plenty of other games that are coming to the service from developers such as Disney, Konami, Lego, Cartoon Network and Platinum Games, the same developer responsible for the 'Bayonetta' series.
  6. The Indian gaming industry is seeing a rapid growth, thanks to behemoths like Tencent, who're actively making an active investment. If everything goes well, digital gaming in India is expected to grow into a billion-dollar market. But it's not all roses here when it comes to gaming. According to a report by a US-based cloud services provider Limelight Networks, it looks like Indian gamers are seriously addicted to gaming. An alarming rate of Indians are even compromising on basic things like meals, sleep, and even work for playing online games. © Pexels Apparently, close to 50-per cent gamers in the country are considering quitting their jobs to take up gaming as a profession. I mean, I like the enthusiasm, but I am not sure if they all realize the risks involved. The report highlights that Indian gamers are spending nearly seven hours each week playing online games. Close to 24 per cent of players are admitting to playing for more than seven hours a week, whereas over 11 per cent of them say they indulge for more than 12 hours in a given week. To shed some more light on the matter, the report further notes that 45 per cent of Indian gamers accepted that they have missed sleep to play games. It doesn't stop there, as 35 per cent of gamers say they've missed out on spending time with their friends or going out on a date. And surprisingly, the report says that close to 24 per cent of gamers have skipped work just to play games. If not, it looks like nearly 20 per cent of gamers play at work on a daily basis. © Unsplash As I said, I like the optimism, but it's important that they need to understand the risks involved too. Professional gamers, spend more 10-15 hours a day grinding to perfect their gameplay. Twitch streamers & professional gamers like Shroud, DrDisrespect, etc., spend way too much time playing games. Some of them have even talked about the mental and physical health issues which they have to go through to put so much work. As much as I am excited about Indian gamers coming out of the closet, I am equally concerned about the addiction and other factors that are involved. Well, let's just hope that people understand what they're getting into, and it's not just because of the on-going 'PUBG' fad. I say that because a lot of Indian gamers and streamers are doing extremely well playing these new titles. Naturally, the people enjoying their streams and gameplay are bound to get attracted. However, it's important to see the full picture and balance everything before being able to support oneself as a professional gamer. If not, then this needs to stop before it's too late.
  7. 2019 has been particularly good for the gaming community, with new titles launching back and forth. The year started off strong with the survival-horror game 'Resident Evil 2' remake, following which we saw some other titles like 'Metro: Exodus', 'Kingdom Hearts III', and more. March, on the same lines, is also looking just as exciting. We don't have too many game launches lined up for this month, but I've managed to compile a list of games that you should be playing this month. Let's take a look - 1. Devil May Cry 5 © CAPCOM If you fancy flashy combos and some crazy, over-the-top Japanese action, then you've got to play 'Devil May Cry 5'. DMC 5 is the next title in the action combat series, in which you'll get to play as three characters - Dante, Nero and a newcomer named V. This new character can summon demons to assist you in combat. 'Devil May Cry 5' also has an online component dubbed Cameo system, which will allow you to fight with others during the different points in the campaign. Much like every other new DMC title, DMC 5 also introduces new weapons, enemies, and new abilities. So expect to find yourself in an action-packed title. You can read our review of the game here. 2. Dead or Alive 6 © Koei Tecmo 'Dead or Alive 6' is the latest entry into the long-running 'Dead or Alive' fighting game series. This entry, in particular, puts more emphasis on realism and graphic detail during combat. If you've played the previous title, then you'll also see some gameplay changes. 'Dead or Alive 6' also introduces a new auto-combo system, as well as new counter and rush attack movements. Currently, the game has over 26 characters, and it looks like a few more will be added with the DLCs. 'Dead or Alive 6' is available for PC, Xbox One and PS4. 3. Tom Clancy's The Division 2 © Ubisoft 'The Division 2' is probably one of the most anticipated titles to come out this year. The game will continue the story of the original, however, this title is taking place in Washington DC. Much like the original title, 'The Division 2' is also a third-person online shooter, in which you'll play along with other players taking on missions to save people. We're not going to give out much about the game itself, but you can wait for our full review of the game which is dropping very soon. The game is available for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. 4. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice © Sekiro 'Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice' is the new game from the director of Dark Souls series, Hidetaka Miyazaki. In this new title, you'll play as a one-armed shinobi put up in Japan. It's a third-person action game that'll require you to pay good attention and react to your enemy's attack patterns. Your objective in the game is to rescue your kidnapped lord and avenge the clan that's responsible for the events in the game. If you're into games like 'Bloodborne', then I am sure you'll have a great time playing this game. Sekiro is also available for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
  8. You can finally play your PlayStation 4 (PS4) games on your iPad or your iPhone via Sony's Remote Play App. The application was already available on Android, considering it was first launched on the Xperia Z3 way back in October 2013. It has taken Sony 4.5 years to get the same feature for iOS devices. © SONY In order to use this feature, you will need to update your PS4, download the RemotePlay app on your iOS device and pair the two. The controller layout is overlaid on the screen and if you want to play on your iOS device, it will work best when paired with a third party controller. You cannot pair the PS4 controller with an iPhone or an iPad unless your device is jailbroken. iOS is a huge platform and bringing the functionally will be a massive expansion for streaming games. There are plenty of MFi gamepads you can use in order to play PlayStation games on your iPad. You can use the SteelSeries Nimbus as a gamepad and map the controls exactly like on the PlayStation 4 controller. © Sony Having said that, you will not be able to play PS4 games remotely such as via a mobile network. You will need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi in order for the function to work. You will also need an iPhone 7 or sixth-generation iPad or later to make the application work with your PS4. The new update has been rolled out for the PS4 and in the 6.5 version of the update, users can also remap the 'X' and 'O' buttons on the controller. Japanese consoles have to use the 'O' button for the “Enter” command, however, you can now remap it to 'X' or the other way around.
  9. Sit down, grab some tissues, and get ready to embrace nostalgia as we take a trip down the memory lane with the top 10 classic games every 90's kid grew up playing. 1. Road Rash (1995) Despite the fact that there were three more 'Road Rash' games before the 1995 version came out, this version of the game has taken over our generation. The ability to punch, kick and steal other racers' weapons while racing? Oh, come on now! 2. Super Mario Bros. In an attempt to save your princess as the Italian-American plumber Mario, you go through a series of complicated worlds and levels coming in contact with different kinds of enemies on the way. However, your role as Mario or Luigi was directly related to whether you are the older or the younger sibling. 3. Contra One of the first 'Gun and Run' games ever, Contra was a story about two soldiers going to war against the evil Red Falcon Organisation in the year 2633. The different variety of ammunition provided to us by the game put us in a tough spot but surely, every single Contra player had their favourite weaponry. 4. Dangerous Dave The makers of Dangerous Dave have admitted that the game was their attempt to mimic Mario and it is evident in their work as similarities in the levels, movement, enemies, etc would be observed. The idea was to help Dave get through 10 levels to battle his rival Clyde in his secret hideout. 5. Lion King We KNOW that you have seen 'Lion King' the movie and we KNOW that you loved it. So it is obvious that you played the game too. Based on the events from the movies, you play as Simba, going through the most difficult areas and puzzles of the jungle. 6. Wolfenstein ften called the “Grandfather of 3D shooters”, Wolfenstein introduced us to the genre of First Person Shooting (FPS). As an American spy of Polish descent, you are on a mission to bring down the rule of Nazi and the death of their leader Adolf Hitler. The retro gaming style with the overall aesthetics way ahead of its time, Wolfenstein was one of the most challenging games from our childhood. 7. Doom An offspring of Wolfenstein, Doom came out a year later in 1993. Taking FPS to the future, the plot of the story is based in the technologically advanced year of 2019 (yes, time flies). After an entire species of man-eating aliens gets in contact with the humans on Mars, you, a space marine, are the only thing keeping them from reaching earth. 8. Virtua Cop One of the most popular items at the gaming parlour, Virtua Cop was a really engaging 'Point & Click' game. As far as the story goes, your colleague from the police department gets murdered while trying to bring a large crime syndicate. Getting hold of the evidence, you detective Michael Hardy along with your partner James Cools must fight against this organisation called E.V.I.L. Inc. *sigh* 9. Prince Of Persia Playing as a “Brave Youth” you must get out of the dungeons you were imprisoned in by the Jaffar, an evil wizard who wishes to rule over ancient Persia and has kidnapped the Princess who is in love with you. You needed to save the princess within 60 minutes or else she dies and your love fails. 10. Duke Nukem Deranged by the lust of ruling over the world evil Dr. Proton and his army of Technots must be stopped in his track. When in the year 1997 all hope seemed to be lost, the world turns to you, Duke Nukem a fearless solo warrior who follows the evil doctor through space and time to prevent earth's end. Also, you had a weapon with unlimited ammo, so that was fun!
  10. We know how much y'all are looking forward to March, thanks to Captain Marvel. But just like every year, March promises to be a season-defining month for most of the clubs across Europe and this season is no different. Considering the fixtures which we'll get to watch this month it promises to be something to savour for the footballing community all around the world. Here are all the footballing activities that you need to consider before stepping out of your house this month. · March 3 - El Clasico Let's just admit it, we can never get enough of El Classico. With the last one happening just three days before this one, there is no way we're going to turn a blind eye on this one. With Barcelona cruising through La Liga this season, it has really been a tough season for Real Madrid. With star players like Gareth Bale and Marco Asensio out of form, Real have found little hope in prodigy Vinicius Jr. But to ask the 19-year old to outperform the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez is a little bit too much. Barcelona are the favourites for this fixture, considering how good, at times unplayable they were versus Los Blancos in the previous fixture. However, if Real do turn up for this game there is a chance they will help Atletico to cut short the points gap to four. · March 2 - North London Derby From one classic rivalry to another. Tottenham vs Arsenal has been a quality fixture for ages now. With Arsenal being the inform side, scoring 10 in their last three games, Tottenham will really have a fight on their hands. Tottenham will receive a boost by the fact that FA will not punish Harry Kane for that Cesar Azpilicueta incident. However, Arsenal have failed to beat Tottenham away in the last three away games and it'll take something more than their mediocre self to make North London red. · March 3 - Merseyside Derby This 'All-Scouse' derby has become a friendly one over the past couple of years. With Liverpool's outright dominance and Everton's poor record, we all have to believe that it's going to be tough for the Blue Merseysiders. Everton, who've failed to register even a single win in the last 18 fixtures vs their rivals, will definitely take things into consideration this time and try to be a stumbling block Liverpool's title climb. · March 3 - Napoli vs Juventus Napoli vs Juventus has become an intriguing fixture in the past couple of seasons. With the Naples coming close to dethroning Juventus off of their title throne before eventually bottling it in the end, this fiery fixture promises to be an entertaining one. It'll be interesting to see how Napoli will deal with Juventus' dangerman Cristiano Ronaldo. The forward who has been in talismanic form since the start of the season will definitely boost his goalscoring record in a bid to win the Golden Shoe. · March 5 - Real Madrid vs Ajax & Borussia Dortmund vs Tottenham The return of the Champions League will be marked with some fascinating fixtures. With Ajax travelling to the Spanish capital to face a Sergio Ramos-less-Real Madrid and Tottenham travelling to Dortmund, this matchday can really cause some huge upsets. After UEFA banned Sergio Ramos for deliberately receiving a booking, Ajax will have to step foot on the gas right away if they want to qualify for the next round. Real Madrid has been nothing but the shadow of the side that won three Champions League in a row and Ajax does have a realistic chance considering their balanced squad. Tottenham will have to be something other than their definite self if they are to qualify for the next round. We know they have a 3-0 lead to take over to Dortmund from the first leg, but you know “it's Tottenham lads.” · March 6 - PSG vs Manchester United & Porto vs Roma With Ole's at the wheel, nothing seems to derail Manchester United's (https://www.mensxp.com/sports/football/49166-ole-gunnar-solskjaer-the-man-who-rsquo-s-turned-the-tide-for-troubled-manchester-united.html ) already revived campaign. But after the 2-0 home defeat to Paris Saint Germain, it will surely take a true Manchester United performance of the past to overturn the deficit in the French capital. In the otherwise low profile tie, Porto will travel to Italy with the solid determination of conquering Rome. With the Portuguese side trailing 2-1 in the tie, expect the unexpected. · March 10 - Arsenal vs Manchester United With the race heating up, every point will matter. With Arsenal on fourth, United on fifth and Chelsea on sixth with a game in hand (as of 1st March 2019), this fixture promises to be a true six-pointer for both the sides. An injury-hit Manchester United will travel to London where they've had a stunning record this season. Will Gunners deny a dance performance of Jesse Lingard and Manchester United, it remains to be seen. · March 12 - Manchester City vs Schalke & Juventus vs Atletico Madrid Schalke will travel to Manchester to face the mighty Manchester City. After coming close to achieving an unexpected result at home, Schalke will be in full revenge mode to achieve a highly unlikely result. The absence of Nicolas Otamendi will not worry City, considering the plethora of talent that they possess. Atletico brilliantly executed its game plan to nullify Juventus' strike force. After gaining a 2-0 first-leg advantage, Atletico will do what they do best when they'll travel to Turin i.e. defend. · March 13 - Bayern Munich vs Liverpool & Barcelona vs Lyon 0-0 is always a tricky first leg result when you're playing away from home. If you don't believe us you should go watch Manchester United vs Sevilla. Both these fixtures ended in stalemates. Now, what remains to be seen is if the home sides can handle the pressure and come out on top. · March 17 - Derby Della Madonnina No fixture endorses Seria A better than Derby Della Madonnina. With the two giants coming together in what seems like a royal battle, Milan Derby is always a great spectacle. AC Milan will be really looking forward to the fixture considering Inter's Icardi captaincy fiasco and Milan's new boy Krzysztof PiÄtek in sparkling form. Add to that Milan's failure to win any of the last five games, this makes up to be an amazing match. · March 21 - Griezmann's Documentary © Fifa Netflix will be adding 'Antoine Griezmann: The Making Of A Legend' to its football content on March 21. What is expected to be a one-hour documentary will show the obstacles and successes Griezmann has continued to have throughout his career. Motivation coming in 3..2..1 · March 31 - Liverpool vs Tottenham With the title race tightening up and the outcome of the season being decided on small margins, this fixture, most probably, will clear who will be raising the trophy at the end of the season. Currently a three-horse race, Tottenham will travel to Liverpool to face the Reds, who are unbeaten at Anfield this season. With Tottenham being the busiest of all the clubs this month, we think you all know what to expect from the White Lilies.
  11. If there is something sweeter than scoring an extra time winner, it has to be reunions and rivalries. The better part of rivalries turns into controversies whereas reunions are celebrated and cherished. Since exceptions are always there, Luis Figo's hostile welcome at Camp Nou and the boos Angel Di Maria received at Old Trafford, are some of the few examples of the fact that reunions are not always a bed of roses. If you're still not over the 'Pogbrilliance' from last night, here are some thrilling reunions and rivalries to look forward to this week. 1. Tuesday - Liverpool vs Bayern Munich © Bavarian Football Works It cannot get bigger and better than this. Two European giants with 10 Champions League titles between them. Liverpool vs Bayern Munich at Anfield promises to be one of the games of the season. This match will see the reunion between a master and two of his apprentices - Jurgen Klopp and Mats Hummels and Robert Lewandowski. The German coach was responsible for bringing Lewandowski to Bundesliga and Mats Hummels to Borussia Dortmund. After the initial struggle, Klopp turned the Polish hitman into a phenom. He has now scored 193 Bundesliga goals and is just 2 behind the former Bayern Player Claudio Pizarro in terms of 'Most Goals Scored By A Non-German Player.' The former Mainz manager also transformed Hummels into one of the best defenders in the world, forcing Bayern Munich to buy him back from Dortmund. Lewandowski has come back to hurt Klopp on many occasions during latter's time at Die Borussen. It'll be amazing to see Klopp deal with the monsters he created. This match will also see Bayern come face to face with one of their treble winners in Xherdan Shaqiri, who has had an impressive start to the career at Anfield. 2. Wednesday - Atletico Madrid vs Juventus © therahnuma Atletico Madrid versus Juventus will see Cristiano Ronaldo meet his old foes. Currently the second best player in the world, Cristiano will meet Atletico for the first time since his move to Turin. It'll definitely prove to be a 'Clash Of The Titans' when the likes of Ronaldo, Dybala and Douglas Costa will take on Griezmann, Diego Costa and Thomas Lemar. For four years in a row, Ronaldo's Real Madrid ended Atletico's dreams of winning a UEFA Champions League title. Twice, those defeats came in the final of the competition in heartbreaking fashion. Just thinking about the reception he'll receive at Wanda Metropolitano sends chills down our spine. This match will also see Mario Mandzukic come up against his former employers. The Croatian who spent a season in the Spanish capital left after falling out with coach Diego Simeone. In other fixture, Manchester City will see golden boy, Leroy Sane, come up against his boyhood club, FC Schalke 04. Making it a night charged with emotions. 3. Thursday - Arsenal vs BATE Borisov © BBC Thursday will see Arsenal face BATE Borisov in the second leg of UEFA Europa League. To everybody's surprise, the Belarusian club came out on top in the first leg and will have a lead to defend during travel to North-London. What makes this match special is the return of former Arsenal player Alexander Hleb. His name might be the one that comes to mind when you think of the 2006 North-London outfit which came so close to winning the first Champions League trophy in club's history. But it was in Arsenal where the Belarusian played the best football of his career that eventually earned him a £12 million move to Pep Guardiola's Barcelona in the summer of 2008. It'll mark the return of a cult hero. 4. Saturday - Sevilla vs Barcelona © Inquirer In the race to La Liga title, Barcelona will face Sevilla in a tricky away fixture. Tricky because the last time Barca played Sevilla at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium, the home side ran out 2-0 winners in Copa Del Rey, only to be hammered away 6-1 by the Catalan club a week later. Though Barca leads Sevilla by 17 points in the points table, any slip-ups here will allow direct rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid to cut short the lead and pile the pressure on Barcelona. 5. Sunday - Manchester United vs Liverpool © BBC Super Sunday! The final day of this exhausting week full of football will see four of the top six Premier League sides in action. Firstly, it'll be the North-West Derby. With Liverpool coming to Old Trafford and aiming to go on top of the Premier League table, Manchester United will do whatever they can in order to not let that happen. This derby can prove to be the biggest of them all in recent years, with United having a say in Liverpool's title bid. Any result of helping the neighbours Manchester City will be favoured by United faithful in order to disrupt Scousers' title dream. 6. Sunday - Manchester City vs Chelsea © Ronaldo Secondly, after 6-0 drubbing last week, Chelsea will face Manchester City in the English League Cup final at Wembley. After a dismal run of form, Chelsea has slipped to fifth in the Premier League Table. A win here will prove to be a morale booster for London club in an otherwise shambolic season. Manchester City is definite favourites for the final and this could prove to be the first step towards the unprecedented quadruple. Other Fixtures: . Lyon vs Barcelona . Chelsea vs Malmo
  12. A decision has been taken by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Pakistan Cricket captain Sarfraz Ahmed, who was incidentally caught barking racial slurs at South African all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo on 22nd January 2019 during the second ODI match at the Kingsmead Cricket Ground in Durban. After about a week of inspection, the ICC has finally decided to suspend Ahmed for four matches after he said: “Abey kaale, teri ammi aaj kahaan baitheen hain? Kya padhwa ke aaye hai aaj?". (Hey black guy, where's your mother sitting today? What [prayer] have you got her to say for you today?) and everything was recorded by the stump microphones placed right in front of him. The suspension follows a wave of serious flak towards Ahmed and his comments which was spearheaded by the former Pakistani cricketer and all-time great Shoaib Akhtar, who uploaded a minute and a half long video from all his social media handles to publicly show his disgust with Ahmed's words and urge him to make a public apology as soon as possible. Surely, about 24 hours later, Ahmed did take to Twitter to address the whole issue but his comments felt less like an apology and more like him trying to dodge his way out by saying that his words were not supposed to be heard by any specific individual nor were they for the opposing team to understand and that whatever he said was out of sheer frustration. 1/2 - I wish to extend my sincere apologies to any person who may have taken offence from my expression of frustration which was unfortunately caught by the stump mic during yesterday's game against SA. My words were not directed towards anyone in particular and... — Sarfaraz Ahmed (@SarfarazA_54) January 23, 2019 2/3 - I certainly had no intention of upsetting anyone. I did not even mean for my words to be heard, understood or communicated to the opposing team or the cricket fans. I have in the past and will continue in future to appreciate the camaraderie of my fellow cricketers from... — Sarfaraz Ahmed (@SarfarazA_54) January 23, 2019 3/3 - ...across the globe and will always respect and honour them on and off the field. — Sarfaraz Ahmed (@SarfarazA_54) January 23, 2019 However, when the ICC made their decision to suspend Sarfraz for four games public, the Pakistan Cricket Board, in a statement on their website, said that they were utterly disappointed by this measure. “The PCB notes the ICC decision on Sarfaraz Ahmed with its utmost disappointment. PCB had anticipated that the matter had been resolved amicably between the two players and the two Boards following Sarafraz Ahmed's public apologies which were accepted by the player, the Board and South Africa cricket team,” reads the statement. The ICC has also ordered Ahmed to take up "an education programme to promote the understanding and awareness of issues directly relevant to the offence that he has committed”.
  13. Video game revenue has been on the rise for the past few years and it reached a new peak of $43.8 billion. That's 18% up from previous year and has surpassed the projected total global box office number for movies. The numbers were released by the reliable NDP group and Entertainment Software Association. In fact, we predicted this over two years ago as games like GTA V, Fortnite, Fifa 19, PUBG and others are literally taking over the world. The increase in Video Games revenue could be attributed to a variety of factors. Free-to-play games such as Fortnite, PUBG Mobile and even AAA games have implemented micro-transactions in their games that may have resulted in an 18% revenue increase. In fact, Fortnite made almost $3 billion in profit last year. The same could be said about PUBG as the game also managed to rake in a $1 billion in revenue in 2018. Last year, it was projected that global box office revenue from around the world would hit $41.7 billion, according to comScore data. In fact, Video game revenues also surpass streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime where it is estimated to rake in $28.8 billion. Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix said in a shareholder letter “We compete with (and lose to) Fortnite more than HBO,” the company's shareholder letter stated. “When YouTube went down globally for a few minutes in October, our viewing and signups spiked for that time…There are thousands of competitors in this highly fragmented market vying to entertain consumers and low barriers to entry for those with great experiences.” According to te NPD group analyst Mat Piscatella, revenue in video games comes from a variety of sources i.e. hardware sales, micro-transactions, digital and physical game sales and mobile gaming. With keeping trends in mind, the video game revenue will steadily increase in 2019 and 2020 thanks to new consoles launching soon and blockbuster games like Anthem, The Division 2, and Death Stranding are on the horizon.

  14. Fortnite has been dominating the gaming world and is probably the most successful free-to-play game in gaming history. The game managed to make $2.8 billion in revenue in 2018 and it doesn't seem to die out in popularity soon. The Battle Royale genre was made popular by PUBG and the game has held its own when it comes to earnings. © Blue Hole 2018 was a huge year for PUBG and according to Superdata figures, the game made over $1 billion in revenue last year. That made PUBG the highest grossing paid game in 2018 and the earnings don't even include money made from PUBG mobile. If we take earnings from PUBG mobile into consideration, it is probably the second highest grossing game right behind Fortnite. Here's the full list of both free-to-play and paid games ranked according to their earnings: Top Free-to-play Games Fortnite, Epic Games - $2.4 billion Dungeon Fighter Online, Nexon - $1.5 billion League of Legends, Riot Games, Tencent - $1.4 billion Pokemon GO, Niantic - $1.3 billion Crossfire, Neowiz Games - $1.3 billion Honour of Kings, Tencent - $1.3 billion Fate/Grand Order, Aniplex - $1.2 billion Candy Crush Saga, King, Activision Blizzard - $1.1 billion Monster Strike, Mixi - $1.0 billion Clash Royale, Supercell, Tencent - $0.9 billion Top Paid Games PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Bluehole - $1.028 billion FIFA 18, Electronic Arts - $790 million Grand Theft Auto V, Take-Two Interactive - $628 million Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII, Activision Blizzard - $612 million Red Dead Redemption 2, Take-Two Interactive - $516 million Call of Duty: WWII, Activision Blizzard - $506 million FIFA 19, Electronic Arts - $482 million Monster Hunter: World, Capcom - $467 million Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, Ubisoft - $440 million Overwatch, Activision Blizzard - $429 million PUBG has been continually losing players after it peaked with 3 million concurrent players worldwide however it still ended up being the top selling and most-played game on steam. Considering how Fortnite has been destroying everything in its path, it's impressive to see the game earn this kind of figures. © MensXP The mobile version of the game has become more popular thanks to its popularity in India and other regions. The mobile version earned $32.5 million in November 2018 alone and it seems like the popularity of the game will only seem to rise. It's not only the mobile version, the game saw a sudden rise in concurrent players on Steam I.e. 1 million players in December 2018. This may have been due to Blue Hole's effort to purge hackers that initially led to the game's stagnant growth. It would be interesting to see how PUBG will fare against Fortnite in 2019 and whether it would be able to rake in similar revenue numbers. Still, it was reassuring to see PUBG hold it's own against a juggernaut like Fortnite. Source: Forbes

  16. PUBG Mobile and Fortnite have been sensational in 2018 and the craze is yet to fade. While these games undoubtedly redefined the capabilities of mobile gaming on a larger scale, they've also proven to be extremely resource intensive and often addictive. In the past, we've seen games like Temple Run and Pokemon Go become instant hits and the ones who started early ruled the leaderboards. We've compiled a list of games for iOS devices that you should be playing right now. These aren't exhaustive for the phone and also offer the right combination of fun, without the addiction! 1.

This game belongs to the infamous battle royale genre, but add a lot of different twists to it. You can freely choose your starting point and should aim to stay within the safe zone all the time.

Helix Jump © YouTube If you are in the mood for a cool and challenging reaction game, you should try Helix Jump.

  17. Battle Royale games have been dominating the charts on every platform be it PC, Console and even Mobile, which has led to many other games using the same formula. The wildly popular 'PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' (also known as PUBG) and 'Fortnite' have created a genre of games that people can't get enough of. The Battle Royale format of games has taken inspiration from a Minecraft MOD that has now become the norm for standalone games like PUBG. 'PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' is not everyone's cup of tea and sometimes, people need a lot more from a game that can put forth a difficult challenge. Sometimes, people need a game with its own unique spin that can make the gameplay a bit more exciting. So, if you are wondering what other Battle-Royale games you can play for free, you can take some suggestions from our list below: 1. H1ZI © H1Z1 H1Z1 is currently available for free on PC and PlayStation where you compete with 150 other players on a 60-plus square mile map. You can decide where to land based on how hectic a landing zone is, as the map glows where there's already gunfight taking place. It has a similar concept as PUBG where you need to scour for supplies, weapons and equipment. You can even jump in a car and start circling the safe zone to get your kills. 2. Fortnite © Epic Games It is by far the most successful Battle Royale game out there that has amassed over 200 million players. The game is free to play on PC, Consoles, iOS and Android making it the most accessible game out there. 'Fortnite' has its own unique spin to the Battle Royale formula where players need hunt for supplies, weapons and make makeshift defence shelters. You can play solo, duos or squads of up to four players with different game modes that suit different play styles. 'Fortnite' reportedly earned $3 billion last year and isn't going to slow down anytime soon. 3. Free Fire - Battlegrounds © Free Fire It is by far the closest game to PUBG Mobile where players have to follow the same concept of gathering supplies and killing enemy players. The only difference here is that the game is much more fast-paced, as there are only 50 players in a single match and takes place on a remote island, that is smaller in size when compared to any PUBG map. Free Fire is currently available to play for free on Google Play Store with in-app purchases. 4. Last Man Standing © Last Man Standing If you love to play PUBG on the PC, then 'Last Man Standing' is as close as you can get to a free-to-play PUBG game. It has all the core gameplay mechanics as PUBG, however, it isn't as refined. But, it is a great free alternative you can try playing right now. 5. Survival Royale © YouTube This is probably the closest PUBG Mobile clone you can find on the Play Store where it follows a similar game design and graphics. Having said that, the controls on this game are a bit more intuitive than PUBG Mobile and looks slightly better in terms of graphics. You can expect each round to last around 15 to 20 minutes which is more than enough to play during a break.
  18. The PlayStation 4 is a machine built for playing games, and guess what, you could definitely play a lot of games on it in 2018. Some of them were even good, and there were a few that were legitimately great. And that's what we are focusing on today, the top-notch games of PS4. Unbelievably, the PlayStation 4 launched over five years ago at this point. Still feels like a pretty modern, compact little box, doesn't it? If you own a PlayStation 4 or recently bought one this holiday season, here are the games you need to play on the console: 1. Red Dead Redemption 2 © Rockstar Studios 'Red Dead Redemption 2' (RDR 2) had the largest opening weekend for any form of entertainment media in history. It is the second highest grossing entertainment launch right behind Rockstar's other property 'Grand Theft Auto 5'. Set in the 19th century, you play as Arthur Morgan on his quest as a gang member in the West. What sets this game apart, is the immense detail in your day-to-day actions. You can choose to accept or reject missions, which affect your reputation. Your interactions with other characters in the stories will change how others perceive you. You get fatter if you eat more, your hair grows over time, your gear and guns wear out and will need conditioning, and dynamic seasons will get people to change clothes too. Buy it here 2. Marvel's Spider-Man © Marvel Insomniac Games has brought everything you'd want from a superhero game: all the main characters, a fully open NYC map, a plethora of powers and ample crime to fight. The best part about this game is that it is based on the original storyline from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It blends more than fifty years of Spider history together, moulds it around a thrilling recreation of Spider-Man's trademark motion and fighting styles, and puts you in control of the whole thing. There have been open-world Spider-Man games before, but none so riveting and full of personality, none that explore and do justice to this many facets of the map. Buy it here 3. Bloodborne © YouTube In 'Bloodborne', you're a hunter, taking on a world that wants you dead. In practice, that means you're playing a third-person action game where constant death is pretty much an expectation. It's only through careful attrition that you'll learn to survive and progress. The game has a gothic style and horror-themed background and these elements have made 'Bloodborne' a classic must have. It follows the player character, the Hunter, through a decrepit Gothic, Victorian era-inspired city of Yharnam, whose inhabitants have been afflicted with an abnormal blood-borne disease, with the player character unraveling the city's intriguing mysteries while fighting beasts.

In Nathan Drake's final adventure, he pursues pirate treasure, evades a ruthless villain and throws his personal life into chaos — and that's just the setup. 'Uncharted 4' is the last, and arguably the best game in the 'Uncharted' series, combining a delightful historical mystery with top-notch gunplay and vehicular exploration sections. It's essentially the video game version of 'Indiana Jones', as you trot around the globe avoiding bad guys and stealing long-hidden treasures. Buy it here 5. God of War © Sony Entertainment It is Kratos' first appearance for the PS4/PS4 Pro generation and we could not be more excited to play this game. The game takes after events of the original trilogy, where Kratos has started a new family and has settled down. It brings in new RPG elements and a surprisingly touching father-son story. Kratos' wife (and Atreus' mother) has died, and her last request was to have her ashes released at the tallest peak in the land. It's a subtle refocus that, unbelievably, turns Kratos into a complex, interesting character for the first time. Buy it here 6. Horizon Zero Dawn © PlayStation The plot follows Aloy, a hunter in a world overrun by machines, who sets out to uncover her past. The player uses ranged weapons, a spear and stealth to combat mechanized creatures and loot their remains.

Shadow of the Colossus © SCE Japan Studio The PS2 classic 'Shadow of the Colossus' has been given a stellar facelift for its PS4 iteration, opening Team Ico's masterpiece to a whole new generation of players.

  20. Remember waking up on a Saturday morning, loving that you didn't have to go to school, heading straight to the TV, putting on your console and playing your favourite game? Yeah, that's what the weekends looked like when we were kids. Wasn't it fun? Way better than the present day when all we have to look forward to on the weekend is paying electricity bills and getting the flush repaired. Yes, we're all at an age where nostalgia is hitting us hard at every single turn, so today, let's look back at 5 video games we never got enough of as kids: Contra There's no way we're ever forgetting this game. From the cool music to the endless action, it was pretty much the best shooting game of its generation. I'm yet to meet anyone, gamer or non-gamer, who hasn't heard of Contra. As a kid, it was the ultimate video game for me. Shooting games couldn't possibly get any better, right? Boy, was I wrong! Still, you know how they say you never forget your first. Yeah, that! Super Mario Bros. There have been tons of different versions of Mario but the original will always be one of our favourites. No, we're talking about Mario's first appearance (Donkey Kong), we're talking about the game the entire family can enjoy. I remember my brother and my cousins patiently waiting for their turn to play. Spare a thought for Luigi though, the poor guy never stood a chance back then. Road Rash This list wouldn't be complete without paying homage to the first co-op video game in Indian history. No, Road Rash wasn't actually a co-op game, but all of us remember controlling the bike while our younger siblings got to kick anyone who came close to us. If that's not teamwork I don't know what is. I have some fond memories of this one. Midtown Madness Road Rash was our first tryst with racing games, but Midtown Madness was a cut above in more ways than one. We had so many vehicles to choose from, so many different maps. It was a dream to play. It was also my first introduction to the roadster. Boy that car could move. Pac-Man We end this list with possibly one of the most iconic games of the millennium, Pac-Man. The concept was simple, fun and the music just made it so much more enjoyable. It also taught us that eating fruit would scare ghosts away. Now that's top-notch life advice, right? We will never forget any of these video games no matter how many years go by. But, if you're looking for a, sort of, mini-jolt of nostalgia, check out 'Ralph Breaks The Internet.' It is a more than apt successor to the first movie and nostalgia is just one of the reasons why you should check it out.
  21. Up until the PlayStation 4, the controller layout remained unchanged for years. Having said that, the Touchpad on the PlayStation 4 is more or less used as a quick action button in various games and wasn't really explored further. However, according to a new update to Sony's DualShock controller, the touchpad could be replaced with a proper touchscreen. © YouTube The patent was spotted by DualShockers, and suggested that the touchscreen can be used for interactive feedback such as showing stats, displaying a mini-map or other functions you need to see on the fly. Sony has already implemented an LED light bar which changes colour according to your gameplay. It's not the first time we've seen a touchscreen on console controllers. Nintendo's Wii U had a similar concept that did not impress gamers as a whole. The Sega Dreamcast also implemented something similar back in the day which was also a failure when we look at sales figures. However, Sony has been killing it when it comes to console sales all over the world and it may just be a successful implementation for the company if the company implement the latest patent. © Pexels Even though this is a patent, for now, it is possible to see a new Dualshock controller with the next generation of Sony PlayStation. Sony is reportedly working on the PlayStation 4 successor and it may be possible that we will see the new controller bundled with PlayStation 5. We can only know for sure once Sony unveils the new console which could release sometime in late 2019/early 2020. Source: DualShockers
  22. The title sounds like a clickbait? Well, it isn't. Google is actually working on a project dubbed 'Project Strem' and it intends to let you play high-end console games right on your Chrome browser. The project is already out in beta and directly beams games to your Chrome web browser. For the project, Google has teamed up with game developer Ubisoft and is currently allowing beta testers to play the recently released Assassin's Creed: Odyssey for free. But, the catch here is that you will be actually able to play the game depending on your internet service provider. In a nutshell, the concept behind this is game streaming. Instead of processing the game locally on your computer, the data is processed at a remote server and streamed to you. © Digital Trends For the gaming experience to actually feel like a console, a solid minimum 15Mbps internet connection is required, and Google is officially recommending 25Mbps. Even the latency needs to be taken care of and should be lower than 40 ms along with just 5 per cent data transmission loss. If you are able to get yourself a decent internet connection, the game is all yours to enjoy. Obviously, you can't expect the game to churn out high frames per second right now and it currently runs at about 30fps, anywhere between HD and Full HD. Project Stream isn't the only attempt at cloud-based gaming though, Nvidia GeForce Now and PlayStation Now aim to accomplish the same feat. A lot of journalists were given the opportunity to test out the gaming experience and the response has been positive. Digital Trends says "It delivers a consistent, smooth gaming experience, all in your Chrome browser. But don't hold funeral rites for traditional consoles just yet." The most interesting part is, the game can also be played on Chromebook, all you need is a working Chrome browser and a solid internet connection. © Project Stream Even you sign up to be a beta tester for Project Stream by signing up here. Keep in mind, Assassin's Creed Odyssey is an AAA rated game, and hence the minimum age requirement is 17, and obviously, you need at least 25Mbps of internet connection to go through. The test is scheduled to end in January, but until then, you are free to explore everything about the game. Project Stream also supports wired USB controllers, so if you don't like playing Assassin's Creed with a mouse and keyboard, you can plug in a DualShock 4, an Xbox One controller, or an Xbox 360 controller.
  23. The #MeToo movement in India is roaring right now and is causing an uprising that has been due for a very long. One of the latest names that have come to light in this regard is that of Varun Grover, the writer of the critically acclaimed Netflix series 'Sacred Games'. Varun, who has been accused of sexual harassment, has flatly denied all the charges against him. I completely, totally, categorically deny all the allegations being made. The screenshot in question is untrue, misleading, and defamatory to say the least. Issuing a detailed statement soon. — वरà¥à¤£ (@varungrover) October 9, 2018 Here's my detailed statement about the completely fabricated, misleading, and defamatory allegations against me. Am absolutely willing to cooperate and clear my name. Let's not allow such agenda-driven tactics to derail this movement please. pic.twitter.com/VTFeIjygcl — वरà¥à¤£ (@varungrover) October 9, 2018 Varun Grover has been associated with some major projects in the past and also enjoyed the reputation of a successful stand-up comedian as well. He is also the writer of the Vicky Kaushal starrer 'Masaan'. Rumour has it, that the fate of the second season of everyone's favourite 'Sacred Games' is in jeopardy at the moment. As per a report by in.com, a source has revealed insider information about the show, “at this time we are evaluating options on the path forward.” Another trade source revealed to the website, “The #MeToo movement is going the Hollywood way. After the news that Reliance is apparently considering dropping Vikas Bahl's (one of the partners of Phantom,) name from the credits in Super 30, which he is directing, now comes another piece of news. In the light of the recent allegations against one of the writers of Sacred Games, Varun Grover, Netflix is considering some options on how to tackle the situation. They may drop the successful web series completely (which turned around Saif's career once more) or drop the name of the writer.” © Instagram Will the second season see the light of the day and who will take over as the writer now? An official confirmation is awaited from the makers for now.
  24. Basketball is one of the most exciting sports in the world and can keep you entertained for well over an hour. The small size of the court ensures the action is fast-paced throughout. But, even in one of the most exciting sports in the world, there are some games which are a cut above the rest. These games stand out because of the outstanding solo performances, overall team performances or sometimes, even for the sheer magnitude of what's at stake. © Getty Images So, here are 4 NBA Finals games in history that are going to go down as some of the best ever played on a basketball court: 2016 – Game 7 – Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors The Cavaliers were losing the series 3-1 when the near unstoppable Warriors were taken to task by one of the all-time greats, LeBron James. He helped his team come back to tie the series before leading them to the win in Game 7. It's hard to forget when Kyrie Irving landed a three-pointer over Steph Curry, which got Cleveland the 3-point lead needed to win the title! 1998 – Game 6 – Chicago Bulls vs Utah Jazz This match will go down in history for one reason and one reason alone - Michael Jordan's last-second jumper that left Bryon Russell on the floor. Nicknamed “The Last Shot,” it was Jordan's last basket in a Chicago Bulls jersey and helped him win his 6th NBA Championship. It also has the honour of getting the highest TV rating for any NBA game ever. 1994 – Game 7 – Houston Rockets vs New York Knicks Patrick Ewing and Hakeem Olajuwon. A couple of names not as popular as the ones above, for the average Indian fan, but they are legends in their own right. Olajuwon turned on the heat when it mattered the most. He scored more points than Ewing in every single game of the finals. Olajuwon almost got a triple-double in this game ending with 25 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists. 2011 – Game 4 – Dallas Mavericks vs Miami Heat The Miami Heat was already up 2-1 in the series and was on the verge of making it 3-1, and getting that much closer to winning their first NBA Championship title. But Dallas came back from a 9 point deficit at the start of the fourth quarter to win the game and eventually, their first and only NBA Championship title.
  25. If you play games on the Sony PlayStation 4 you may have come across a huge obstacle when buying games digitally —credit cards. The PlayStation digital store currently only supports Indian credit cards for purchasing games digitally and has no support for Debit Cards. Indian Gamers tend to not have access to a credit card which made it harder for everyone to purchase a game digitally or even renew PlayStation Plus. © Twitter Finally, Sony has made adjustments to their strategy and introduced PlayStation Network Cards for Indian gamers. These cards are now officially available online on GamesTheShop (Online and Offline stores) which can be purchased with a debit card or even cash. This will enable players to add funds to their digital wallets, buy PlayStation Plus, Game Add-Ons like FUT points and even full games. Voucher codes are available in the denominations of: • Rs. 500 • Rs. 1000 • Rs. 1500 • Rs. 2000 • Rs. 2500 • Rs. 3000 • Rs. 3500 • Rs. 4000 • Rs. 4500 The ability for gamers to buy digital codes and wallet top ups could boost sales of games and digital sales in India. Currently, India has around 2.5-3 lakh users that can take full advantage of these prepaid cards. Having said that, Indian gamers prefer to buy physical copies of games so that they can re-sell it after finishing the game. We're not entirely sure how this will pan out however it is a welcomed move for gamers who prefer to buy games digitally and have access on Day 1. © Sony Would you be buying Digital prepaid cards to buy games, DLC and other add-ons from the PlayStation Store? Let us know in the comments how this would affect you.
