After covering over 300 VR games in recent years, we’ve seen a bunch of different technologies pop up and pass by. From the early PC-based development kits by Oculus to the mainstream appeal of wireless models like the Meta Quest 2, it’s been quite a ride. PlayStation jumped aboard with PSVR, and PSVR is on the horizon as well now, offering a new leap forward for console gamers. But while the Quest 2 is currently fairly dominant in the mainstream market, we believe that PC-based VR can still offer a superior experience. We went into the virtual dimension with a ROG Strix SCAR 15 gaming laptop to explore, and here’s what we found out. Continue reading “Taking the Asus ROG Strix SCAR 15 on a VR spin”

Mobile Gaming on a Budget – Six Things To Look For

In recent years we’ve seen an increasing number of high profile mobile titles pop up, so it’s easy to see that mobile gaming has come a long way since the days of Angry Birds and an endless stream of Match-3 games. It is a viable alternative to console and PC gaming though, or does the average phone struggle to keep up?
