  1. Battle Royale games like PUBG Mobile and Fortnite, as we all know, hit mobile gamers hard. With over millions of active players, these titles are still going strong even after all these years. Well, if you're tired of playing the same old battle royale titles, or if you're planning to get aboard the battle royale hype train, then we've got some amazing options. Let's check them out - 1) Crossfire Legends If you like PUBG Mobile, then you'll most likely enjoy Crossfire Legends too. It's a fantastic game and it's developed by Tencent, the guys who made PUBG Mobile. Just like PUBG Mobile, Crossfire Legends' BR mode also lets you dive into a solo, duo or a squad game. Crossfire Legends got great weapons and amazing visuals, so it's definitely worth checking out. In addition to the BR mode, this particular game also offers a few different modes such as Team Deathmatch, Mutant mode, and more. Availability: Android & iOS 2) Call Of Duty: Mobile This one's a fairly new game. Heck, it's not even available for all users, but it's still worth adding to the list. Call of Duty: Mobile, though it's only available for select registered users, has gained a lot of traction. It's got a Battle Royale mode, Team Deathmatch, etc. Call of Duty: Mobile differentiates itself as a tactical shooter, making it one of the very titles out there offering a tactical shooting experience. We've already put up a detailed write up explaining about the key differences from PUBG Mobile and you can check it out right here. In case you haven't tried the game yet, here's how you sideload the game and play it right now. Availability: Android & iOS 3) Fortnite Fortnite is in-part responsible for creating the battle royale hype, so we had to add this to the mix. Unlike PUBG Mobile, this one's a super stable game and a lot of fun to play. Although Fortnite is a battle royale title, the gameplay is slightly different. The only downside to the game is that it's not available on the Google Play Store, so you'll have to get it from the Epic Launcher. It's available directly from the App Store though. Availability: Android & iOS 4) PUBG Mobile Well, lastly we have PUBG Mobile. Yes, the game that popularised the Battle Royale genre. The game lets you jump off to an island with 99 other players and get into an epic battle to get the 'Chicken Dinner'. The game has a bunch of different weapons, looks great, and even works on phones with not-so-powerful specs. One of the best things about this game is that it's constantly updated with new skins, items, etc., so there's always something to look forward to. Give it a try if you haven't already, but keep your play time in check. Availability: Android & iOS
  2. It's Computex week and there have been some crazy concept machines that were unveiled during the show and we came across a very unique device. HP unveiled a VR gaming backpack that basically runs RTX 2080 and comes with a VR headset. The entire setup where all the computing and processing takes place is strapped on your back while you can enjoy VR games anywhere. © HP The concept basically comes from VR gamers who complain that they are often confined in their room or a specific area. HP has come with a solution who want to enjoy VR games and not be confined to an area by putting everything that powers a gaming machine in a backpack-like-device. HP has launched something similar for their Omen gaming computers however this version comes with all the bells and whistles of a desktop gaming PC. © HP The VR backpack comes with 8th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, Nvidia RTX 2080 GPU and can also be used via a display port for high-res VR gameplay. Compared to the previous model, HP says that the new VR backpack has 30 percent better performance and 25 percent faster graphics. In the case of wanting it to use as a traditional desktop, it can be plugged into a dock. It would look something like this: © HP Other specifications include 16GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage. The backpack can only last for 1-hour on battery life which is more than enough for VR gaming. Naturally, the HP VR backpack doesn't come cheap as it will sell for $3,300 (approx Rs 2,30,000). With the backpack, you get a battery charger, desktop dock, two batteries and a harness. The VR backpack is expected to be available sometime this summer.
  3. Pankaj Tripathi needs no introduction today. This man's talent sells tickets and has found a gazillion buyers, with filmmakers queuing up to rope in the actor in their projects. After years of struggle, now due to a happy turn of events, and with the wheel of fortune getting a move on, the 'Mirzapur' star has his hands full with great projects in the works. Lately, we have seen Pankaj Tripathi spell his magic on-screen and entertain us with great content, which only deepened our faith in him and his art. From 'Stree' to 'Luka Chhupi' we have loved every minute of his presence on-screen, because he delivers so much more than acting his part. © Twitter Pankaj adds layers of personality to the characters he plays and gives them a human touch which almost makes the viewers feel they have met the character or someone like him in real life. Apart from all that, there is something to be said about Pankaj and the kind of roles he plays. To call them mainstream or insignificant would be a mistake that can only arise from naivety. If there is one thing that must be kept in mind, it is that more screen-time does not equal to good roles when it comes to someone like Pankaj Tripathi. © Twitter Without taking up a lot of space, Pankaj has delivered some very fine performances which have a lot of substance in them. While we can appreciate and admire his past works, here are 5 'hatke' roles that Pankaj Tripathi is set to play in upcoming Bollywood films, that will only increase his fandom manifold: 1. Super 30 Hrithik Roshan's much-anticipated movie based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar, also stars Pankaj in a significant role. Pankaj Tripathi will be seen essaying the role of Anand Kumar's arch-rival Devraj Jagan Safdarjung. © Twitter 2. Drive We saw Pankaj Tripathi pull off the portrayal of a cynical CRPF officer in 'Newton' which also earned him a lot of critical acclaim. Now, in this Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez starrer thriller 'Drive', Pankaj Tripathi will be seen playing a uniform-clad cop. 3. '83 Based on the life of legendary Indian cricketer Kapil Dev and his claim to fame with 1983 World Cup win, the film will see Pankaj Tripathi essaying the role of the former manager of Indian cricket team PR Man Singh in the film and honestly, we can't wait to see Ranveer Singh and Pankaj Tripathi together on-screen! © Twitter 4. Kargil Girl Based on 'Kargil Girl' and Shaurya Chakra winning ace IAF pilot Gunjan Saxena and her adventures during the Kargil War, and starring Janhvi Kapoor in the lead role, Pankaj Tripathi will be seen essaying the role of Gunjan's father, an Army officer, in the film. 5. Angrezi Medium One of the most-awaited collaborations in the industry, Pankaj will be teaming up with Irrfan Khan for this one, and as per reports, he will apparently be playing a wheeler-dealer named Tony, who owns a travel agency and helps Irrfan and Radhika's on-screen characters to reach the UK.
  4. Black Shark 2, the gaming phone that we've been waiting to get our hands on for a long time, is finally here in India. It packs pretty much everything that you'd expect from a gaming phone in 2019 like a powerful Snapdragon 855 processor, up to 12GB of RAM and more. Let's check it out. To start with, the Black Shark 2 packs a 6.39-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 2340×1080 pixels resolution. It's doesn't have a 90Hz display like the OnePlus 7 Pro, but the display takes advantage of features like “Fast Finger” and “Magic Touchh”, and has a 43.5ms response time. The “Magic Press” tech, in case you're wondering, works like Apple's 3D display, meaning you'll be able to press down harder on the display to actuate different functions. © Black Shark Internally, the Black Shark 2 is powered by Qualcomm's 7nm Snapdragon 855 chipset, coupled with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. It also features Liquid Cooling 3.0 for even improved heat dissipation. There are 2 vapour chambers and a copper plate inside the phone to keep things cool while gaming. As for the optics, the Black Shark 2 sports dual rear cameras with a 48MP (f/1.75) primary sensor and 12MP (f/2.2) secondary sensor. On the front, there's a 20MP (f/2.0) selfie shooter. The phone also comes equipped with a huge 4,000 mAh battery for which Black Shark is also including a USB Type-C 27W fast-charger. © YouTube All these beefy internals are packed inside a body that looks kickass from the outside. The company says the phone's ergonomic design resembles that of a sports car. Seriously, the Black Shark 2 looks like a true gaming phone with its curvaceous build and metal+glass design. Oh BTW, the phone also comes with LED strips on the edges and a glowing Black Shark logo at the back. Black Shark 2 Accessories In addition to the phone itself, the company also showcased a bunch of accessories to go along with it. There's a fancy cooling fan attachment and switch-style dual controllers. Lastly, you can also get an HDMI to USB Type-C cable and use the “console mode” to hook it up to, say, a TV. Pricing and Availability The Black Shark 2 gaming phone has been launched at Rs. 39,999 in India for the base variant with 6GB RAM & 128GB storage. You can also get your hands on the 8GB+128GB variant for Rs. 49,999. The phone will exclusively be available for sale on Flipkart from 4th June.
  5. Sony's upcoming next-generation console is not launching anytime soon. However, we already know a lot about it already, with more information pouring in every day. On the same lines, Sony's Vice President John Kodera has now confirmed that the new PlayStation 5, when it launches, will support backwards compatibility allowing you to play with PS4 players. According to Kodera, cross-generational play is very important to the company. He also noted that it's extremely important to keep the PlayStation community happy as it starts to migrate from PS4 to PS5. He didn't share a lot of details, but we're just happy to hear about the backwards compatibility support. It's great news for those who just bought a PS4 and were worried if Sony would just pull the plug. © Pexels Speaking of pulling the plug, it's also worth mentioning that Sony is also committed to supporting the PS4 for at least the next three years. Well, that makes a lot of sense considering the fact that there are millions of PS4 users in the world, and not all of them will be upgrading to the new console. It also goes to show how Sony isn't expecting a huge player to migrate to the new console in the first place. That being said, we already know enough about the upcoming console to tell you that it would be worth the upgrade. The next-generation PlayStation console is said to bring new things like a faster SSD, Ray-tracing support and more. The faster SSD, in particular, is what's said to make the most difference in terms of loading times, render times, etc. Obviously, there's still a lot that we don't necessarily know about Sony's next-generation console, but we do know that we have exciting times ahead. The new PlayStation 5 will definitely be worth the wait.
  6. 'Call Of Duty: Mobile' is the next free-to-play game that is currently in Beta on Android. Being one of the biggest gaming franchises of all time, the first-person shooter game is already garnering new players every day and is now PUBG mobile's biggest competition yet. The game is currently working for Android smartphones; however, you need to pre-register to access the game via the Play Store. © Call of duty mobile Having said that, there is a way to access the game without having to wait for registrations. The process is a bit more complicated than simply installing the APK file. The game comes with some classic maps from previous AAA Call of Duty games, multiplayer game modes, battle-royals mode, familial characters and signature weapons. © Call Of Duty Mobile In order to play the game, we recommend you have a file management app already installed on your device. Once you have installed a file manager, follow these essential steps below to make the game work: Download the APK file and additional OBB files from here Install the APK file and extract the OBB files. Copy the OBB files into a folder and name it as “com.activision.callofduty.shooter” Copy the com.activision.callofduty.shooter folder and past into the following path: Phone Storage Android OBB After pasting the files, go ahead and start playing the game. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer You can now register yourself with your Facebook account or play as a guest. You can access the game for now; however, you will lose all your progress once the game officially launches as the game is still in beta.
  7. Indians love their booze and appreciate the kind of 'high' the golden-mahogany liquids are capable of inducing. Hardcore Indian guzzlers do not believe in discriminating between theke ka daaru desi (remember this track from 'Cocktail'?) and classy IMFL liquor served at fancy bars and restaurants. From the throat-burning shots of liquor to the lighter ones that glide easily and warm us up, most Indians will say yes to any, and every boozy option out there. © Getty Images Yet, even though Indians love to brag about their drinking skills, according to The Global Drug Survey held recently, it seems that India still has to work hard to be amongst the top 5 drunkest countries in the world. As per the results of the recent survey released by London, which is also known as the League of Shame, it showed that the United Kingdom is the drunkest country in the world, while India stands in the sixth position. © Rajkumar Hirani Films According to the survey, the British get drunk 51.1 times a year, which is at least once a week, whereas Indians get drunk 41 times a year, which is almost once a week. At the second position is United States (50.3), followed by Canada (47.9) and Australia (47.4). Many South American countries were seen to be drinking least predominantly. © Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Talking about the UK's lead in the survey, Adam Winstock, the founder of the survey and a consultant addiction psychiatrist told Hindustan Times that, “We get told too much is bad, and it is, but current guidelines fail to accept the pleasure of intoxication and give a little guide on the difference between being a little drunk and a lot drunk, and doing it three to four times a year versus weekly.” We wonder how Indians will take their ranking in something they love to indulge in, and believe they are actually good at.
  8. Be it 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', 'MS Dhoni: The Untold Story' or 'Mary Kom', biopics based on sports stars are a sure shot formula for success and filmmakers are always eager to tap into this arena. Bollywood is increasingly looking to sports for inspiration for their stories, and with good reason too. We have had many biopics that have had a successful run at the box office. Earlier, reports stated that Tiger Shroff had been approached for the biopic on Indian football legend Bhaichung Bhutia, which will be helmed by Anand Kumar. Talking about the development, our source said, “Tiger had gone to meet Anand Kumar. Yes, he was approached for the movie and he did like the script. But, his dates and schedules are tightly packed. He might say a no to doing the biopic. That's what is known till now. Tiger is not saying anything official for now. As far as his dates and schedules are concerned, he won't be able to take it up.” View this post on Instagram #inbetweenshots #takingafewshots #ð· @shariquealy A post shared by Tiger Shroff (@tigerjackieshroff) on Dec 21, 2017 at 10:03pm PST When the speculations of the film started to float around, Bhutia had shared that he was honoured to have his life put together in a biopic. Tiger would have been a perfect fit for the role considering his fitness levels and how athletic he is. If not Tiger, then who do you think can play Bhaichung Bhutia on the big screen? Let us know in the comments below.
  9. If you've seen the first episode of the final season of 'Game of Thrones', you'd have come across many things that may seem very probable. That's exactly how and why theories come into place, isn't it? And I believe you already have a few of them tucked under your belt. For instance, after seeing Lord Umber trapped in the 'death swirl' created by the Night King, we do believe the swirl has some relevance in the last season, since we've been seeing it since season 1. It could also mean it has a prominent clue on how to defeat the Night King and his army. Well, that's what theories do, build interest and a narrative for the show. © HBO Similarly, there's another theory doing the rounds. Remember Arya and Gendry and how they parted ways? It broke our hearts to see them bid adieu in the most unfavourable circumstances, but they meet again in season 8, where they are both relieved the other is alive. Gendry, a blacksmith, is busy at Winterfell forging weapons from Dragonglass and Valyrian Steel to defeat the Wights and the White Walkers and being an ace blacksmith himself, he makes some rather indestructible weapons. After a flirtatious banter between the two, Arya asks Gendry to forge her a weapon and I think that's the most romantic gesture I've seen off late! An assassin asking her former crush to craft her the finest weapon of all. Well, we do believe it's the finest because the weapon Arya has asked Gendry to make for her will play a pivotal role in the season. © HBO Let's look at all the facts here. Arya pulls out a drawing and passes it on to Gendry so he can make it. The weapon looks like a double-ended spear/staff, with a Dragonglass and a Valyrian Steel blade on each end, both detachable. Now, if you see the season 8 trailer again, you'll see Arya fight with a weapon that looks like a staff, and not to forget she got adequate training fighting with a staff when she was trying to become one of the 'Faceless Men', so it all adds up I suppose. But that's not all. According to Tommy Dunne, the weapon master of Game Of Thrones, there is a creation in season 8, which is apparently going to steal the show and I bet it's the weapon Aryá asks Gendry to make for her! © HBO “There is one creation in season 8 that is absolutely phenomenal. It'll be a showstopper. That was great to finish. It was great to make, great to design it that it was about to be reverse-engineered and made into two different items.” Dunne told a popular international publication. Does he mean Arya's weapon may put an end to the show? I wonder! Well, we really can't wait to know what Gendry forges for Arya and if the weapon itself is a showstopper like Tommy said. After all, the weapon Arya asks Gendry to make does have two pointy ends!
  10. 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.
  11. The year was 1992. The US men's basketball team was pretty much swatting its opponents away. USA took on Croatia for the gold medal match and won by a 32-point margin. That side in the years to come, came to be known as the Dream Team and truth be told, it had some big names. The team had the likes of Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing and Chris Mullin among others. But one man drew a lot of attention and already had a budding career with Chicago Bulls in the NBA. That man was Michael Jordan. In 8 games, he averaged nearly 15 points and by the time he retired, would leave a legacy behind to be proud of. © Getty Images 32,292 points, 6672 rebounds and 5633 assists speaks a lot of his ability on the court. He also averaged over 30 points per game. When one hears his name, the memory of him flying in the air to make a basket stands out. But this is not the story of his legacy, it is the impact he made on that day in 1992 in the mind of a 6-year old boy who was, well, still getting to understand the world around him. Yours truly was discovering this new sport where one had to put the ball in the basket and here was this player who was stealing his imagination. I actually owe a lot to basketball. In my school days, while I was more into cricket, basketball was the sport that I played to keep fit. In fact, while it may sound a little too much of a stretch, I even owe my very late growth spurt to the sport. But enough about all that, back to why Jordan was so important in my life. © Getty Images Growing up in the 1990s, particularly in India, one did not have much access to sports like nowadays as far as information was concerned. There was no digital media where we could get updates just like that. Back then, the newspaper, TV and radio were our only options. NBA matches would be telecast late at night as they were being played right across the world, and the odds of staying up late in the school days was out of the question. Still, the fan in me would not give up. Occasionally I would sneak into the living room and watch with a low volume when Jordan was playing. It paid off. I got to see him win the NBA championship with the Bulls in 1996, 1997 and 1998. Not to mention being part of the All-Star from 1996 to 1998 and 2002 to 2003. Sometimes I do wonder, what if Jordan was playing now and that too in his prime? We sure would have loved to see him take on the likes of LeBron James. But when all is said and done, Jordan is the reason I started playing and watching the game, to begin with. It all began on that day in 1992. It was a pleasure to watch him on the court and the inner child in me counts himself lucky. So from the bottom of my heart, I thank you Michael Jordan, for making me fall in love with the basket, the ball and the court.
  12. Way back in early 1953, when racism was what was 'trending' and brown and black kids had to go that extra mile to earn an average living which the whites enjoyed as a 'birthright', the younger of two sons to a Sikh carpenter who went by the name of Amar Singh Virdee, was born in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi. The boy was named Rajinder Singh Virdee. After fleeing to the United Kingdom following the Mau Mau uprising in Kenya in 1960, Rajinder developed a great level of affection for the game of football in the Queen's land. It was his name, however, that made him feel out of place in the first instance. Hence the seven-year-old boy decided to go ahead with Roger Jones before changing it to Roger Jones Verdi and finally being satisfied with Roger Verdi. "Times were hard for me to fulfil my dreams, and I had to make some adjustments from my culture to fit in the English environment to try and achieve my goals," Verdi told BBC. Growing up, he became thick-skinned, unshaken by the racial slurs thrown at him by the kids of his age, playing around the block. "I had people call me names when I played, especially London boys. But I just laughed and shook their hand after the game. A Sikh is never sensitive to adversity. To beat racism one has to ignore it and I did because I accepted it, but I was bigger than it." Having played for the Wolves at the age of 14 every Friday, Verdi used to earn £5 but that came as a bonus to him for his main income came in the form of the ability to play the game he loved so dearly. However, not being able to receive better training in England, Verdi moved to Canada to follow his dream to play football on a professional level and the advice of his friend who offered him a spot with the Vancouver Spartans. "I needed to get out of England and, even though I didn't know much about Canada, with one bag and my boots, I was at Heathrow airport that evening to fly out there," he said. According to Verdi, the highlight of his career came in 1977 when St. Louis Stars played against an all-star New York Cosmos during which he was asked to defend the best player of football back then, Pele. Even at 34, football came naturally to the legend but Verdi stuck to the man like white on rice which made Pele a bit agitated and led him to ask out loud: 'Are we married?'. Chuckling, Verdi replied, “Yes, but we're getting divorced at full-time!” © Roger Verdi The Sikh athlete was so good that former Bayern Munich coach Dettmar Cramer told him that he would have been a Bundesliga-level player had he been playing in Germany. He was also recommended to play for Tottenham Hotspur by his former teammate, Graeme Souness, back in the day. However, our hero did not get the opportunity to make it big in England. "I made it as far as I did with no guidance because I had the hunger, the drive and work ethic. Yes, it was not what I wanted, but I made a good life out of it and it's been a great journey." h/t: BBC
  13. The twelfth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is still on the stage of infancy but let there be no mistake about the level of competition the league exudes every single night. Batsmen are scoring more, bowlers are being more aggressive and fielding has become a part of the teams' defense so vital that the franchises are not backing away from getting involved in some 'unfair practices' to get the upper hand in the 40-over face-offs. According to Delhi Capitals' assistant coach Mohammad Kaif, IPL teams like Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and scoreboard leaders, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) have been bringing in fitter, more agile fielders to replace poor fielders during the games and that the umpires have failed to spot it out. © Twitter - IPL “It is right that most matches are finishing close to midnight. Teams are bringing in good fielders and replacing them with slow ones. I think the umpires should look at the changes that the teams are making,” Kaif told media ahead of Delhi's game against Kane Williamson's SunRisers Hyderabad. “For example, DC versus KKR match, (Andrew) Russell went out, Rinku singh came to field. Piyush Chawla quickly bowled his four overs and went out and Rinku again came back.” “We have seen that in the last Punjab game as well. Sarfaraz Khan didn't come to field after being hit on the gloves. I don't know if he is injured. Karun Nair came to field and he took a good catch at long on of Ingram,” Kaif explained further. Always taking pride in his fielding talents, Kaif believes that such unfair practices must be stopped with immediate effect as it is against the spirit of the game. “Teams are playing smart and making changes which are not right to me. We will bring it up with the umpires,” added the former Indian cricketer. Slow over rate is another problem that irks the DC coach. Multiple cases have already come to the league officials' notice and the decision-makers have already fined Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Mumbai Indians (MI) skippers Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma with Rs. 12 lakh each. @rajasthanroyals captain @ajinkyarahane88 was fined Rs 12 lakh as his side maintained a slow over-rate during their narrow loss to the @ChennaiIPL at the Chepauk Stadium here#IPL2019 pic.twitter.com/IT58HFNUtr — IPL 2019 (@IPL20195) April 1, 2019 “Teams defending are taking too much time I think, I don't understand all these planning in the IPL, there is an hour long meeting and also a lot of planning even at the field,” Kaif said.
  14. It's a dream for all gamers to own as many games as possible, so that you'd never run out of games to play. But there's a fine line between collecting and hoarding, and apparently, a Texas man named Antonio Monteiro is lost in between. Last week, Antonio earned the Guinness World Record for having the largest video game collection in the world. How many does he own? 20,139 to be precise as of March 28. Yes, that's just insane. © Guinness World Records Monteiro has been collecting games since he was a child, and he apparently owns games for second to eighth generation consoles. Of course, he also owns 100-plus devices on which he plays all these games. Owning that many devices make sense considering the fact that he literally has huge walls stocked with games. You can check out the video here - The wall of games, as you can see, includes complete collections for consoles like Sony's PS2. the Nintendo Wii, Sega Dreamcast, and more. His first ever game was a copy of 'Golden Axe' for Sega Genesis, which his parents gave him as a gift. His favourite game, however, is 'Super Castlevania IV' for Nintendo SNES, and he calls it a masterpiece.
  15. A lot of you may have forgotten 'Pokemon Go'. Yes, the AR game that took the entire world by storm in 2016 when it launched. We're sure a lot of you would have played the game very seriously at some point or the other. But do you know what's real dedication? It's this grandpa - © Twitter That's right. He's using all those phones to play 'Pokemon Go', that too in 2019. Not that people don't play the game anymore, but playing with so much dedication? Seriously, we've never seen someone taking the game so seriously. He's a 70-year-old Taiwanese grandpa named Chen San-yuan, and he's currently spending all his waking hours carrying all these phones to catch Pokemon. You'd find him in the streets of Taiwan either on a bicycle or by himself carrying the huge rig. © YouTube Chen indulges in fortune telling during the day and in the evening, you'll find him going to parks and other places in the city hunting for Pokemon. Apparently, he took it up as a hobby, and he's been hooked since then. He is said to have captured 45 million Pokemon! Ash Ketchum, who? He apparently spends thousands of dollars per month on the game to master it. The expenses include buying new phones, in-app purchases, and more. Chen also keeps external batteries and charging cables on him to enjoy the game when he's out. Recently, Chen was also named as the ambassador of Taiwanese brand ASUS as he is said to use 20 Zenfone Max Pro M2 phones among others for his Pokemon adventures. He also revealed that his favourite Pokemon is the big, cuddly giant Snorlax.
  16. A couple of days ago, the cricket fraternity found itself split into two when Kings XI Punjab's captain Ravichandran Ashwin 'mankaded' Rajasthan Royals (RR) hitter Jos Buttler in an exciting matchup during the first week of the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). For the better half of RR's batting, it felt as if Jos Buttler was single handedly going to win the team's first match of the season as Punjab bowlers grew restless. Finally, in the 13th over, Ashwin did something cricketers from all around the world frown upon. Halfway into his bowling action, he stopped and hit the stumps at the non-striker's end to appeal for a run-out as Buttler was a step outside of the crease. Cricketing fans from all over the world had some strong opinions about the incident. People like Dale Steyn and Eoin Morgan were absolutely livid with Ashwin's actions, calling him out in public for his lack of sportsmanship, and of setting a bad example for the future generation of talented cricketers India will be producing in the coming years. He ain't winning any spirit of cricket awards is old ashwin — Dale Steyn (@DaleSteyn62) March 25, 2019 On the other hand people came of Ashwin's rescue saying that whatever he did was not illegal and was well within the ICC rules of cricket and therefore should not be bashed so much. Former Test opener for the Indian side, Aakash Chopra even promoted the idea of more and more bowlers mankading after the match between Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday. Missed Opportunity....more bowlers need to start running batsmen out at the non-striker's end. It's a 22-yard pitch...don't let them make it 20 yards. #Unfair pic.twitter.com/qeGBDocU8G — Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) March 27, 2019 The issue snowballed into something so dramatic that legends of the game like Shane Warne and Harsha Bhogle indulged in an ugly Twitter battle as well. Believe it or not but this isn't the first time Ashwin has 'mankaded' someone. Back in 2012 in an ODI match against Sri Lanka, Ashwin did the same to Lahiru Thirimanne. However, back then the leadership of the roster was in the hands of legends like Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar, who overruled Ashwin's appeal when asked by the umpires and asked the Sri Lankan batsman to return to the crease. Such was the class with which the Men in Blue used to play the game. Players like Tendulkar, Sehwag and even MS Dhoni for that matter have grown as elite cricketers and respectful athletes who have the heart of a champion, sure, but did not settle to sell their morals in order to win a game. The 'win at all costs' notion that has plagued sports in recent years has completely gone against the very ideals of sports. Discipline, honour, mutual respect, everything goes out of the window as soon as the greed of getting that extra number in the points table takes over. What Ashwin did was well within the rules as Harsha Bhogle's gone on and on about in the past three days but would players like Tendulkar and Sehwag do something like this, or better yet, be proud of it? We think not.
  17. The twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is currently in full flow, bringing some of the biggest names in cricket to represent eight cities in the country. Six games into the tournament, this season has already produced some of the blistering knocks, match-winning spells and electric fielding efforts. But, while the players are busy enthralling fans, the prominent cricket commentators and experts are also adding to fervour this season. Amongst them, Kevin Pietersen seems to be making the most of his time in India while carrying out responsibilities of commentating and match analysis in the ongoing edition. Away from cricket stadium, the former England batsman finally got to fulfil his wish of playing 'Gully Cricket' on the streets of India. The 38-year-old was recently travelling when he saw some kids playing cricket on the road. While he might have called time on his playing career, Pietersen couldn't stop himself from picking the bat and smashing the ball far and long. Just stopped on the side of the road to play gulley cricket in Bangalore. Always wanted to do it! Today I did it! â¤ï¸ðð pic.twitter.com/7HTLgIAd8Q — Kevin Pietersenð¦ (@KP24) March 28, 2019 Pietersen shared a picture and brief video of himself with the cricket fans on Twitter where he was seen playing cricket with the kids in Bengaluru. "Just stopped on the side of the road to play gully cricket in Bangalore. Always wanted to do it! Today I did it!" he tweeted with a picture alongside the kids. I wasn't very good...! ð #GullyCricket pic.twitter.com/IrYY63PonJ — Kevin Pietersenð¦ (@KP24) March 28, 2019 Before taking up the commentary role, Pietersen had enthralled cricket fans with his batting while playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Delhi Daredevils (now, Delhi Capitals) and the now-defunct Rising Pune Supergiant. He was involved in the IPL as a player for eight years (from 2009 to 2016) before pulling out of the 2017 edition due to a packed schedule.
  18. 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.
  19. They say if the story is rumoured to be beautiful, it should be narrated to the world. And that's what filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali is doing for us. Bhansali recently announced that he'd be making a film on the life of renowned lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi and his love interest, poet Amrita Pritam. Since the movie is set in the 40's era, we assume the backdrop will be classic and ostentatious just as all his movies have been. © Pinterest But there's one more fact to look forward to. Bhansali may have closed down on the two people he deems fit to play the lovers and we're super excited to see this jodi back for another riveting romantic spree! Seemingly, Abhishek Bachan and Taapsee Pannu will be pairing up for this one and we can only imagine how malleable their chemistry will be in the film, which is purely based on love. The director has been meaning to start this project since a while now and although the news isn't official about the cast yet, we do know that both Abhishek and Taapsee have unofficially agreed to do the much-anticipated film. © Eros International The film is due to hit the floor sometime in October this year and it'll probably release only by 2020 but even so, the subject of the film is so beautiful, we can't wait for it to release. “Both Abhishek and Taapsee have loved the story and are looking forward to collaborating again. However, they are yet to sign on the dotted line. Once the formalities are locked, they will begin prep,” a popular publication reported. © Eros International Although many big stars were approached for this project, namely Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and even Irfan Khan who'd also said he'd love to play Sahir Ludhianvi's character because he relates to him and his work deeply, now the roles of Ludhianvi and Pritam will be played by Abhishek and Taapsee respectively. “Sahir saab was one of our most talented poet-lyricists, his verses are still inspiring. To bring them back through his love story will be beautiful but also a huge responsibility. It's a difficult film for the writer-director (Jasmeet Reen) too so I don't want to be in a hurry but give it the darza it deserves.” said Bhansali while talking to a popular publication. © Twitter While we're eagerly waiting for the film to throw some light on the beautiful equation Sahir Ludhianvi and Amrita Pritam shared, Bhansali is all set to team up with Salman Khan after 20 years for 'Inshallah', starring Alia Bhatt and in all probability, it's going to be a 2020 Eid release. For now, we're super excited for Abhishek and Taapsee and we really hope more details emerge about their upcoming film together.
  20. Usually, students who haven't prepared for an exam, tend to fill their answer sheets with relevant (or sometimes random) info. Let's admit it, we all have done it or at least thought of doing something along these lines at some point. However, a young boy in Karnataka decided to fill his Economics answer sheets with 'PUBG Mobile', simply because he didn't study and had nothing else to write. Yes, these PUBG Mobile controversies are getting seriously getting out of hands now. The boy, who spoke to The New Indian Express, said he lost track of his studies this year after getting addicted to the online mobile game, and couldn't prepare for his exams. He admitted that he got so engrossed in the game, that he forgot the exams were around the corner. His parents saw him being busy on his phone all the time, but he kept them in the dark by saying that he was chatting with friends. And instead of writing answers to the questions, he filled his sheets with 'PUBG Mobile' information, covering everything from 'How to install PUBG Mobile', to 'Tips and Tricks'. © PUBG Corporation While talking to TNIE, he said, “I was studious but got attracted towards PUBG as it was entertaining, and soon got addicted to it. Sometimes I even bunked classes to play the game and sat in the nearby garden.” He apparently got angry with himself and wrote about the game in his answer sheet. The teacher who evaluated the boy's answer sheet was pretty surprised to see all the info about 'PUBG Mobile'. The teacher said, “Usually students who do not know the answers write film songs or famous movie dialogues. But this boy has written everything about the game, starting from steps to download it to how to play it. He seems to have good mastery over the game.” © PUBG Corporation The issue was then reported to the principal, who then summoned the boy's parents to notify them about his addiction. It looks his parents took him for counselling, and he is now preparing to reappear in the exam.
  21. 'PUBG Mobile', as we all know, is currently dealing with a lot of backlash from the authorities in the country for being “addictive”. The situation was escalated to a point where people started getting arrested for playing the game. Amidst all these controversies, it's been reported that Tencent has now decided to restrict the game to only 6 hours of play time a day. As soon as you hit the time limit, you'll be shown a message saying, “You've played the game for 6h today. Please come back later”. Here, take a look - © Indian Noob The game will reportedly show you a warning message after 2 and 4 hours play time before reaching the 6-hour limit. There's no official word from Tencent as of now, but looking at the screenshot, it looks like you won't be able to get into a game for the next 24 hours once you reach the 6-hour limit. The play time restriction isn't showing up for all the players just yet. We couldn't spot this “Health Reminder” option in our phones, so there's no way to confirm this. Though the screenshot looks legit, we'd still suggest you take this with a grain of salt. We'll hold on to our thoughts until we get an official statement from Tencent.

  23. Cricket is India's biggest religion and its religious followers, aka the Cricket fans, are now gearing up to welcome this year's biggest festival. Yes, we're talking about the much-awaited Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 which begins on March 23. Ahead of IPL, everyone is busy promoting their respective teams and so is the King of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan. As KKR gears up to play their first match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on March 24, the team's proud owner Shah Rukh Khan has posted a promo on social media with the message "Aakhri Dum Tak Aakhri Run Tak". “You pray for us, we play for you” Let's be in it together, Aakhri Dum Tak Aakhri Run Tak. https://t.co/hDfglxXYMh#KKRHaiTaiyaar @kkriders — Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) March 18, 2019 He wrote, "'You pray for us, we play for you' Let's be in it together, Aakhri Dum Tak Aakhri Run Tak." SRK's Kolkata Knight Riders is hands down one of the best playing teams in the IPL and this year too, people have high hopes from the team. KKR is being coached by Proteas legend Jacques Kallis and is led by Dinesh Kartik who recently unveiled KKR's new jersey. We're sure all the KKR fans are praying hard for their team to win this year, now all we have to see is whether SRK's team manages to live up to the expectations of fans.
  24. 'Apex Legends' came out of nowhere and has taken over the battle royale genre with much steam. On its very first day, 'Apex Legends' managed to draw 2.5 million players and has since then garnered over 50 million players recently. © Electronic Arts When 'Apex Legends' was launched, there was no marketing or promotions involved and instead, Electronic Arts invited a few streamers to play the game. One of the sponsored streamers was Ninja and apparently, he was paid $1 million to play for a few hours on launch day, according to Reuters. That's Rs 6.9 crores if you convert it into our local currency. Of course, the partnership was no secret as his stream was labelled as "Apex Legends partner”. A representative from Electronic Arts confirmed to Kotaku that the company did have a marketing campaign in place with content creators at the launch of the game. Getting paid $1 million for two hours of work is a big payday even for Ninja when taking his earnings into consideration. It has been reported earlier that Ninja was paid $600,000 to take part in a single event last year. © YouTube EA's gamble to pay off streamers for promotions seems to have paid off as Apex Legends has managed to rake in a massive number of players in just a month. Apex Legends is a free-to-play game on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game is all set to receive a new update that will introduce its own battle pass for players to earn cosmetic items and in-game rewards. Source: Reuters
  25. This year's UEFA Champions League has been full of surprises right from the very beginning. And now, when it has come down to the knock-out stages, it has turned out to be a different ball game altogether. Earlier, Ajax proved to be a party spoiler in Madrid and now, it seems that the same job has been taken up by Liverpool as they stunned the mighty Bayern Munich by a margin of 3-1 at the Allianz Arena. The prolific performances by the trio of Sadio Mane, Firmino and Mo Salah (SFS) turned out to be a lethal one to handle for N. Kovac's side. With two goals by Mane and a header by Virgil Van Dijk, the Reds made the win look like a piece of cake for them. #BAYLIV 1-3 FT Mane goal was brilliant pic.twitter.com/efxrQ5fCCt — @Georgebakhos1 (@GeorgeBakhos1) March 13, 2019 Before the start, both the teams were looking pretty good on paper with Bayern having home advantage, but as soon as they got on the field, everything changed. For a moment it felt like Allianz Arena is Liverpool's den, as their smooth passes led Bayern to struggle to keep the possession. A brilliant cut back and chip shot by Mane in the 26th minute of the match got the Reds in the driving seat. Since then, they kept on attacking and didn't stop until the final whistle was blown. Overall, Liverpool took ten shots out of which six of them were on target. Continuous attack by the SFS trio caused deep trouble to Bayern's defence and in the 69th minute, they faced yet another blow as Van Dijk scored the second goal by a robust header in the left bottom corner. © Reuters Later in the 84th minute, Mane smashed the final nail in the coffin by finding the net once again but this time with a header, through a well-oriented lob ball by none other than Salah. Bayern got a consolation goal but that too in the form of an own goal by Job Matip in the early half of the game. There is a reason why football is called a team game and Liverpool just proved the importance of it, as every player in today's squad gave their best on the pitch. Despite Henderson, their captain being substituted in the opening two minutes, Jurgen Klopp and his men went on to give an astonishing performance in the Allianz Arena. © Reuters With this win, Liverpool joined their three fellow premier league teams and remaining four in the quarter-finals of the UCL. The draw for the quarter-finals will be out tomorrow and it would be interesting to see if there can be another split between the EPL teams. With an epic win in the Round Of 16, Mane and Van Dijk are being applauded world-wide on social media. ð¶ We watch him defend and we watch him score, he'll pass the ball, calm as you like,...
