Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Is Real and It's Spectacular 1

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Is Real and It’s Spectacular

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has been in the news for everything but the game itself. There have been allegations of mistreatment of staff and a soaring development budget of $80 million; the spectacle behind series creator Hideo Kojima's final game at Konami is palpable.
In a way, it's kind of tragic to see a game like this being overshadowed by the real life drama surrounding it. At Gamescom 2015 NDTV Gadgets managed to get a lengthy hands-on with what appeared to be a final build of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. From what we experienced, this could very well be the best game you play this year.
Play your way, no matter how ridiculous it might be
The mission available for preview involved infiltrating a base in the desert. We had to find the commander of the base and kill him. The first time around, we played the mission like rank newcomers, running towards the base at the speed of sound. Obviously, alarm bells went off and we found soldiers surrounding us..

Amkette Evo Gamepad Pro 2 Review 4

Amkette Evo Gamepad Pro 2 Review

Delhi-based Amkette has a number of Android-focussed devices, such as the Evo TV which is an Android set-top box; it's also launched the Evo TV MC, which is cheaper and puts the focus mostly on media playback. In August, the company also launched the Evo Gamepad Pro, a controller for Android devices that can be used for gaming, or to navigate an Android set top box interface.
Now, just a little over six months later, Amkette has released the Evo Gamepad Pro 2, available online at Rs. 2,599. Gadgets 360 spent nearly a week with the gamepad, playing various games using it, and found that it was a fairly capable gamepad that's cheaper than similar gamepads from other established brands such as Mad Catz or Steelseries.
Since it's only been six months between the two gamepads, it's not surprising that the controller hasn't changed much. The one big change – pun intended – is to the size of the controller. The first version of the gamepad had a smaller clip to hol..

Google Nexus 10 review 5

Google Nexus 10 review

When I first turned on Google's new tablet computer, I immediately thought of it as a mere conduit to Google services.
Besides giving you quick access to Gmail and YouTube, the Nexus 10 steers you to digital movies, books and other content available for sale through Google's online Play store.
Because of that, I wasn't thinking of the Nexus 10 as an alternative to Apple's general-purpose iPad – even with a price tag that's $100 cheaper, starting at $399. It took more thought and time with the Nexus to change that perception. After all, apps available for Android smartphones work on the tablet as well.
Still, the Nexus really shines when it comes to media – especially content bought through Google.
For the past year, Google has been trying to challenge Apple and Amazon by selling digital content.
The Play store is Google's version of iTunes for Apple devices. There, you can get a variety of apps, some free and some for a small fee. You can buy or rent movie..

Assassin's Creed Chronicles India Review 7

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles India Review

With Assassin's Creed games taking place in exotic locales like Rome and the Caribbean Islands, it was just a matter of time before Ubisoft's historical stealth-action franchise had an entry set in India. It's finally here and it's called Assassin's Creed Chronicles India.
If the game's screenshots didn't give it away, this isn't a brand new, 3D entry in the series complete with sprawling open-world filled to the brim with side-quests and distractions. Rather it's a 2.5D – 2D gameplay, with some design elements that allow you to move in the third dimension such as pillars you can hide behind – game in the style of Mark of the Ninja, or Assassin's Creed Chronicles China, which released last year. Stealth and action games have veered towards large, fully realised, realistic environments this generation, so the vibrant colours and locales of Assassin's Creed Chronicles India make for a welcome visual change.
