REVAMPED ROAD RASH – ROAD REDEMPTION ALL SET TO HIT THE MARKET SOON
The spiritual successor of Road Rash, ‘Road Redemption’ will launch on 4th October 2017.
WHAT’S THE EXCITEMENT ALL ABOUT?
If you were an 80’s or early 90’s kid, then Road Rash needs no introduction. It appeared like a regular motorbike racing game, but it also allowed you to hit fellow racers while taking out rogue motorcyclists. The game was first released in 1991 and has since undergone many upgrades.
In the game, the player was expected be a part of illegal races, ride reckless, steal and assassinate. All this, while evading the cops. So now that the revamped version of this classic game is launching, the excitement level is sure to be high!
WHAT’S DIFFERENT THIS TIME?
The outline of the game remains the same. A belligerent motorcyclist travels across the country landscape at a whopping speed of 100mph. Yes, like the good old times, you will still be able to side kick and use the chain but, what’s new is the whole set of new armory and strikes. The game allows both single player campaigns and split screen co-op modes. The spoils of the race can be used to upgrade the player, the motorbike and ammunition. The game becomes challenging as the racer has only one life to win the race.
You can play the game using mouse, keyboard and gamepad as well. The game will be supported on Console by 2018.
So far the reviews of the game are great. Let’s hope it lives up to the expectations of the 90’s kids and is able to grab the attention of the millennium kids.
DOUBLE THE SPEED – FIREFOX LAUNCHES QUANTUM BROWSER!
Firefox announces the launch of high speed Quantum Browser on November 14.
DID THEY JUST REINVENT THEIR BROWSER?
Firefox announced the release of the Beta phase of its new browser today. According to their website, “Since the version number – 57 – can’t really convey the magnitude of the changes we’ve made, and how much faster this new Firefox is, we’re calling this upcoming release Firefox Quantum”. The project that was initiated last year in October seems to be reaching its conclusion soon.
Since the time of its launch, Firefox runs on one CPU core (yes! Even until now!!). The new quantum browser has finally decided to use multiple CPU cores which you will find in most of the computers and mobiles today. This in turn has made the browser speed faster and more efficient.
WHAT IS A BETA LAUNCH?
For those of you wondering what a Beta launch is, its a software terminology which means that a product is in its second phase of testing. Usually in this stage the software product (in this case the Quantum Browser) is rolled out to the audience (people like me and you) for use. This is done to test on the new version created, fix bugs and improve upon the features of the product based on the user experience and feedback. Once all of the product is completely stable, the final version of the product is launched.
WHAT’S NEW IN QUANTUM BROWSER?
After years of lagging behind, Firefox seems to be catching up with its competitors by introducing an array of features with Quantum Browser. Apart from the doubling the speed of browsing, Firefox has ensured that you can also measure the speed. The browser design is sleek, minimalist and is catered to user requirements. It works with all the operating systems including the recently launched MacOS High Sierra. Firefox has claimed their new browser consumes 30% less RAM which means engine uses lesser memory than chrome.
While the new browser seems to be loaded with many features, what we need to wait and watch is whether it will be able to beat the number one browser Google Chrome!
