Fable Legends Shows You Don't Have to Kill to be a Hero 1

Fable Legends Shows You Don’t Have to Kill to be a Hero

April 4, 2017 PTdrivers 0

In most video games, support heroes – the ones that keep the others alive to do the actual fighting – are usually side characters that are usually ignored. Team Fortress 2 is one of the few games where the support characters are a treat to play.
NDTV Gadgets chanced upon Fable Legends on the Xbox One at Gamescom 2015, at Microsoft's showcase and think this action driven take on the RPG series might stand out in this regard as well.

Fable Legends features four heroes versus one villain. The heroes have to face waves of enemies and traps set by the villain. All the main characters are playable through online multiplayer, but you can also play alone with AI partners.
In our preview session we were thrown into the role of Celeste, one of the support classes in Fable Legends, along with two other human players and a third person playing the role of the villain.
Our mission took place in a forest, where we foun..

Cuphead Is Possibly The Most Beautiful Game You Will Never Finish 2

Cuphead Is Possibly The Most Beautiful Game You Will Never Finish

March 25, 2017 PTdrivers 0

Despite its old-school Walt Disney cartoon-inspired looks, Cuphead is anything but beautiful. The characters look charming, sporting expressions and animations that remind us of simpler, care-free time, an era when TV used to be about Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny. The actual experience is a far cry from those days though.
At Gamescom 2015 We played the game at Microsoft's press conference and came back with our egos battered to submission. And we weren't alone. Everyone who played the game before us had trouble clearing a single level. None of them could. Neither did we. Much like titles such as Super Meat Boy and I Wanna Be the Guy, Cuphead is tough as nails, and that's great.
With gameplay in the mould of classics like Contra, you'll find yourself running and gunning from one boss or another when you're playing the game.
In most cases, you'd wish that you could progress by just running instead because there is so much to take in from the game. The leve..

Microsoft Surface [year] 3

Microsoft Surface 2022

July 30, 2016 PTdrivers 0

Microsoft seems to have gotten the design and form factor right with its new Surface tablet computer. But the user interface, not so much. That's an odd conclusion to make about a device from a software company that usually lets others do the manufacturing.
Still, that's how I felt after feeling the heft of the device, examining it from all sides and making a few swipes at the screen. The Surface has a touch keyboard cover that feels great and, to me, is a big step forward for tablets. The tablet's software interface, however, seems non-intuitive and sluggish.
Microsoft is clearly straddling the uncomfortable divide between the old world of mice and keyboards, where it dominates, and a future ruled by touch screens, where Apple and Android devices prevail.
Although the Surface won't go on sale until this fall, I had the chance to spend a few minutes with some devices in a group demonstration after Microsoft unveiled them in Los Angeles on Monday.
The removable cover..

Nokia CEO Says 'Not in a Hurry' to Get Back Into Smartphone Business 5

Nokia CEO Says ‘Not in a Hurry’ to Get Back Into Smartphone Business

March 18, 2016 PTdrivers 0

Nokia, which sold its mobile and devices divisions to Microsoft in 2014, has on several occasions confirmed it intends to get back into the smartphone business. Now, the company says it will not be hasty with its re-entry. Finland's biggest company on the sidelines of its talk about the adoption of 5G network ahead of Mobile World Congress also addressed its intentions of getting back into selling smartphones.
Nokia cannot create smartphones products until the fourth quarter to 2016, as part of the buyout agreement with Microsoft. But for its comeback, the company doesn't want to rebuild its vast manufacturing and selling infrastructure. Instead, it is seeking out a partner that could handle those aspects.
But it's not that easy, and Nokia doesn't want to settle for less. CEO Rajeev Suri told Re/Code in an interview that his company “doesn't want to just put logos on somebody's devices.” The smartphone, Suri says, “needs to feel like [a] Nokia, what Noki..

Meet the Man Who Holds the Future of the Internet in His Hands 7

Meet the Man Who Holds the Future of the Internet in His Hands

February 22, 2016 PTdrivers 0

It took years for the Internet to reach its first 100 computers. Today, 100 new ones join each second. And running deep within the silicon souls of most of these machines is the work of a technical wizard of remarkable power, a man described as a genius and a bully, a spiritual leader and a benevolent dictator.
Linus Torvalds – who in person could be mistaken for just another a paunchy, middle-aged suburban dad who happens to have a curiously large collection of stuffed penguin dolls – looms over the future of computing much as Bill Gates and the late Steve Jobs loom over its past and present. For Linux, the operating system that Torvalds created and named after himself, has come to dominate the exploding online world, making it more popular overall than rivals from Microsoft or Apple.
But while Linux is fast, flexible and free, a growing chorus of critics warn that it has security weaknesses that could be fixed but haven't been. Worse, as Internet security has surged as a subject..

Home | Mobiles | Mobiles News Nokia 230 Dual SIM Internet-Enabled Feature Phone Launched at Rs. 3,869 by Ketan Pratap , 30 December 2015 Microsoft has unveiled the Nokia 230 Dual SIM feature phone in India. Priced at Rs. 3,869, the Internet-enabled feature phone is now available to buy via the company's official store.
Unfortunately, there is still no word on the availability of the single-SIM Nokia 230 phone. Last month, Microsoft had promised that the Nokia 230 (and Nokia 230 Dual SIM) will be launching in India this month. Considering that the Microsoft's official site lists the Nokia 230, we can expect the company to launch the model soon.
At the global launch, Microsoft had touted the Nokia 230 and Nokia 230 Dual SIM as 'premium quality Internet-enabled feature phones.' One of the biggest highlight of the Nokia 230 Dual SIM is that it sports a 2-megapixel front and rear cameras. Both cameras pack LED flash modules. Another notable feature of the Nokia 230 Dual ..
