BIOSTAR has released the latest mainboard based on the exclusive A70M chipset from AMD, the A70MGP. The A70M is a value line chipset that supports FM2+ APUs, USB 3.0 and SATA3 and the BIOSTAR boards based on that chipset offer a better value versus price performance ratio compared to boards based on the A68H or A58 chipsets.

Although AMD has just recently launched the A68H chipset, which supports FM2+ APUs, because these new (exclusive to BIOSTAR) A70M boards support USD 3.0 and SATA3, they offer an upgrade level that is higher than the current entry level A58 chipset boards.

Now BIOSTAR is exclusively offering A70M chipset motherboards that come with the same features as the A68H based boards but with lower pricing. The A70MGP is based on the AMD FM2+ socket design that will support AMD Multi-Core (x4, x2) socket FM2+/FM2 processors AMD A-series/ E2-series processors all in a micro ATX form factor.

Using the AMD A70M Chipset, the A70MGP gives you the options for small builds using the MicroATX form factor. It has 2 DIMM slots supporting up to 32Gb of DDR3 ram and uses the newest SATA 6Gb/s bus which is twice the speed of current SATA 3G connections with 4 SATA connectors along with USB 3.0. There is also support for AMD Dual Graphics Technology, as well as support for full HDMI 3D 1080p.

Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the Razer Seirēn (stylized as “Seirēn” and pronounced “Sigh-ren”), a plug-and-play digital microphone designed for studio-grade recording and streaming.

The Razer Seirēn features a digital USB connection and three custom-tuned 14mm condenser capsules, making it capable of supporting four different polar recording patterns. By enabling content users to easily switch between cardioid, stereo, bidirectional and omnidirectional configurations by simply rotating the main control knob, the Razer Seirēn provides true versatility on demand. With plug-and-play simplicity this microphone is simple to use at the studio or at home.

Capable of recording at outstanding clarity levels multiple times of that found on CDs; with an impressive maximum recording resolution of 192 kHz / 24-bit, the Razer Seirēn digital microphone is ideal for the needs of professional musicians, streamers and YouTubers who demand superior quality. The microphone’s built-in headphone amplifier delivers real-time accurate monitoring of recordings to ensure users sound exactly as they intend to.

“Platforms like YouTube and Twitch are a big part of how people experience their media today, and they shape how we interact with each other,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “Tuned for a professional-style setup and able to be assembled and transported quickly and easily, the Razer Seirēn is a microphone designed specifically for streamers and YouTubers.”

Razer is also initiating a “Razer Sponsored Streamer Program” to help aspiring content creators and streamers take their recordings to a professional level. Content creators will be divided up into 3 experience levels and are entitled to different levels of sponsorships ranging from a sponsored Razer Seirēn to a full Razer peripheral suite. Razer is committed to help budding streamers achieve higher level recordings and create immersive content.

For more information on the Razer Sponsored Streamer Program, visit www.razerzone.com/sponsored-streamer

The Razer Seirēn digital microphone is the company’s latest audio product designed to go beyond pure gaming. Earlier this year, Razer launched the Leviathan, a gaming and music soundbar and the Adaro audio line, a series of four headphones tuned for music and designed for comfort and durability. The Adaro collection continues to be popular among EDM artists, musicians and avid music listeners ever since its acclaimed launch at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show.

Beyond its music partners, Razer works with some of the top professional gaming YouTubers and streamers. Many of which were inspirations in the creation of the Razer Seirēn and will play roles in its future development.

Professional recording accessories such as a shock mount and pop filter are also available to pair with the Razer Seirēn digital microphone for the complete recording setup. These accessories along with the Razer Seirēn professional bundle will be available exclusively on RazerStore. For more information, visit http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-audio/razer-seiren

COUGAR, a leading player in the computer gaming hardware market announces today the release of a breakthrough product: the COUGAR 500K Gaming Keyboard. The 500K is the most recent addition to COUGAR’s series of gaming peripherals. Its main target are gamers who either due to habit or due to a wish to minimize hardware cost prefer to use membrane keyboards and at the same time do not want to be in inferiority when playing against mechanical keyboard users. The 500K achieves this by being one of the extremely few real N-Key Rollover membrane keyboards on the market and by including all the pro gamer functions of the acclaimed COUGAR 700K.
image001 COUGAR released the COUGAR 500K Gaming Keyboard
When it comes to features and functionality, the 500K is the best membrane keyboard currently available. For a start, being an N-Key Rollover membrane keyboard it outclasses all the non-NKRO keyboards and competes directly with high end mechanical keyboards. Apart from doing away with the precision gap between membrane and mechanical keyboards, the 500K also includes a whole set of premium gaming-oriented features. It sports the same layout as the acclaimed 700K: Apart from the standard keyboard keys, it includes 6 fully customizable G-keys and dedicated keys for macro recording, configuration profile switching (both for itself and for COUGAR Fusion mice), backlight control, Windows key locking and multimedia functions. It also includes a palm rest with a detachable component to increase comfort when playing FPS.
All this functionality can be managed through the COUGAR UIX™ Device Management System. This software, provided for free for all compatible COUGAR products, allows gamers to unleash the full power of their devices: an easy and intuitive configuration of key functions; macro recording, storage, configuration and macro export and import and many other functions.

It has been a while since I made my way to attend gaming and cosplay events, but I must say that my visit to one of the country’s major gaming events of the year has been a wonderful experience, to say the least. The ESGS 2014 has been a fun and exciting event. Gamers from all over the country gathered for this two-day E-Sports competition and video game convention. In this article, we’ll have a recap of all the activities in the ESGS 2014.

Event Made Possible by GAMEX

GameX, the online gaming portal from the Philippines’ leading wireless service provider Smart Communications, Inc., was the main presenter of the country’s biggest gathering of game enthusiasts, developers, and gamers. The first staging of the eSports and Gaming Summit was held in Pasay City, at the SMX Convention Center, last November 15 to 16.

The two-day event, dubbed as ESGS 2014, was open to all comers, and saw hotly-contested, simultaneous competitions in various games such as DOTA 2, Ultra Street Fighter IV, Dragon Nest, Point Blank, StarCraft Strife, League of Legends, HeadStone, and Tekken Tag 2, among others.  Participants played for a chunk of the total prize pool amounting to more than PhP200,000.

In addition, the GameX-backstopped event featured exhibits by top game publishers, the newest gaming gear and gadgets in the market, a Rig Modding competition, an open-floor Cosplay contest, and a preview of soon-to-be-launched games from Filipino gamers.

According to ESGS 2014 organizing committee head Jobert Yu, the event was indeed historic as it showcased the great talent of Filipinos in this genre, as well as the country’s very active eSports scene. And for the first time, game publishers, developers, and eSports players had the once in a lifetime opportunity to interact and learn from one another in one big stage.

Living up to its billing as a leading eSports advocate and the top gaming portal in the country, GameX introduced the first batch of GameX Girls, a select group of 4 gamer girls who are each hoping to be groomed as the brand’s next social media ambassador.

ESGS 2014 was indeed a great way to promote the country as a possible venue for big eSports competitions and events in the future – of course, with the support of the Filipino gaming fans and GameX.

The ESGS 2014 in Review

Simply put, there was not a single boring moment at the event. Visitors had a grand time watching the various events playing simultaneously. The sponsors’ booths, even the smaller ones, were also quite busy with guests who were graciously accommodated and went home with premium items to boot.

The busiest area, however, was where the real action was – the PC area, where you could find a variety of DOTA2, CrossFire, and Hearthstone players in heated combat, and doing what they do best. Fans had a difficult time deciding on which tournament to follow, as competitions in the different eSports disciplines were held at the same time.

esgs3 Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit (ESGS 2014) Aftermath

Adding more to the somewhat chaotic excitement were the different events going on in the other stages. Among them was Cubizone’s dance contest to promote Music Man as well as the games published by Asiasoft featuring the newest MOBA in the country – Strife. Thus, you can hear “shoutcasters” coming from all directions – inviting spectators and giving a running commentary on the various arenas they are covering.

Some people commented that the event would have been more organized had the various tournaments and contests been scheduled at different times.  However, two days may not have been enough to stage all the events in store.  Besides, everyone who attended the events, participants and guests, alike, had a grand time.

esgs4 Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit (ESGS 2014) Aftermath

Event Tidbits

The champion for the cosplay competition was Ashley Misaki. She won quite a bucketful of prizes that include razer earphones, heavy trophy, cash and a big plaque. The ESGS 2014 was a memorable event and there were many tournaments for various games.

In the ESGS 2014, a record number of fans and gamers enjoyed watching live games from the large screens and I could hear the loud cheers of the spectators while excitedly waiting who among the teams of gamers will be named as champions.

esgs5 Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit (ESGS 2014) Aftermath

In the ESGS 2014, a group of gamers from Cebu known as Arcanys won 1st place in the MPGL DOTA 2 Tournament and they received 35,000Php.

In the ESGS 2014, we also got the chance to see the popular cosplay queen Alodia Gosiengfiao. Alodia is indeed an avid fan of video games, and she is one of the girls who will represent the Smart GameX brand.

esgs6 Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit (ESGS 2014) Aftermath

Joining Hands for a Worthy Cause

It is also worth mentioning that we have partnered up with Sony to launch and extend our fund raising campaign for a noble cause. Called Extra Life, it is a humble initiative that aims to help sick kids in hospital beds. The fund raising drive was started on October 25, 2014 with the mission of raising money to help pay for the medical and hospitalization expenses of these sick children..

esgs7 Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit (ESGS 2014) Aftermath

Any person who would like to participate in the Extra Life fund raising campaign can do so by playing a 24-hour video game marathon. Whether you are donating, livestreaming or playing, you can be of great help to these kids by simply playing video games.

Overall, Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit or the ESGS 2014 is a Philippines Gaming Event trademark that we should we watch for in the years ahead.

LBP3 Gamescom Screen01 1407756832 Little Big Planet 3 Review

Media Molecule has created one of the most adorable games of the century known for its puzzle platform genre. This game is called Little Big Planet or also known as LBP. It was published on various PlayStation consoles by one of the most known entertainment companies of today, Sony Computer Entertainment. Little Big Planet has always captured the interest of gamers, thanks to its “Play, Create, Share” tagline. In Little Big Planet, it is possible to play solo or play alongside with others online.

Finally, the most awaited release of the series is out! The latest release in the series, Little Big Planet 3, has made the characters more adorable and endearing compared to its previous installments. LBP 3 was first mentioned in a media briefing in the early days of June this year and was finally released on November 18, 2014. As with the previous installments, Little Big Planet 3 was developed by Sumo Digital together with Media Molecule and XDev. Due to its recent release, it is possible that only a few people have purchased the game as of the moment. This review of LBP will clue in those who are interested but are not yet quite sure if they will buy the latest release of LBP.

LBP3 Gamescom Screen02 1407756833 Little Big Planet 3 Review

The series has brought the same innovation strategy for allowing the same game played in different consoles. Little Big Planet 3 can be played on both PlayStation 3 and 4. A similar strategy was done for the previous installments that can be played on PlayStation Portable and PlayStation Portable Vita.

Visually speaking, it’s the exact same game but the difference in graphics can be easily noticed. In PlayStation 4, the game is textured well and sharper compared to that on PlayStation 3. Normally, people would prefer playing it with better graphics, but buying another console just to play the same game may be a bit impractical. Maybe those who bought the latest version of PlayStation beforehand would be able to play it with no additional expenses and experience the game in higher quality.

LBP3 Gamescom Screen04 1407756835 Little Big Planet 3 Review

After saving the Craftworld from the Negativitron in Little Big Planet 2, Sackboy, the main avatar in the Little Big Planet series, continues his journey with a more thrilling and vast storyline. Bunkum, a new planet found in the Little Big Planet universe, is the setting of Little Big Planet 3. Sackboy and his newfound friends Swoop, Big Toggle, and Oddsock (who have the ability to fly, transform, and wall-jump respectively) will join forces to stop Newton, an amateur creator that seems intent in destroying the entire creative paradise. Aside from Newton, three vicious Titans were accidentally freed. Together, they oppose those who plan on interfering and that of course points to the main avatar and his friends. The exciting and unexpected encounters await those who have been playing through the entire series.

LBP3 Gamescom Screen10 1407756841 Little Big Planet 3 Review

This newly released game has maintained an easy gameplay even with its additional features. With these new characters and a new ability for the main avatar, gamers would be thrilled to play the game as soon as they purchase a copy. Moreover, content packs from previous installments can be transferred to Little Big Planet 3.

There are also new power-ups that can be equipped and will surely increase the player’s abilities. One of the new power-ups is called the Pumpinator. It is a handy ability to move lightweight objects with air. And wouldn’t it be awesome if gamers could also make their very own power-ups? Fortunately, it is now possible to customize power-ups using the Power-up Creator. Aside from the tools from the rest of the Little Big Planet series, there will be an additional 70 tools in LBP 3. Imagine a whole new experience with the latest release!

As of now, Little Big Planet 3 allows one to play any levels from the previous installments. Before, there were only three layers that were playable. Luckily, the makers have now allowed 16 layers. The system’s hard drive capacity or the so-called Dynamic Thermometer limits the number of players. In LBP 3, they can also patch or stitch levels, making each one much longer and more thrilling.

LBP3 Gamescom Screen09 1407756840 Little Big Planet 3 Review

In terms of audio quality, the sounds used in the game fit well with the images of the characters, creating a jolly and lively mood while playing. The sounds are really catchy so gamers might even end up humming while playing.

One of the things that has made Little Big Planet 3 the best release among the series to date is that it is fully and well voice-acted. Before, only the cut scenes were dubbed. Now, gameplay is also included. Stephen Fry continues to greatly narrate the whole game just like in the previous installments.
