2 Powerful & Stylish Gaming Laptops

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Features, PC / Laptop, Video Games

Asus ROG G75

The key feature of a gaming laptop is that it should be, you know, a laptop: Easy to pack up and carry around for gaming sessions at a friend's house or on the go. Too many gaming machines add so many extra bells and whistles that you need a crate just to carry them around, which kind of ruins the point. The best gaming laptops should be light enough to easily tote, offer enough customization for you to make them your own, and include powerful features that can deal with demanding games without burning out your hardware by the end of the month.

Unboxing Live 186: Wolf Link Amiibo + Zelda Twilight Princess HD

Nintendo sent me an early copy of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD bundle, which includes the exclusive Wolf Link amiibo. In this episode, I open up the Twilight Princess bundle, and give you an up-close look at the unique Wolf Link amiibo figure. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is a Wii U remake of the Nintendo GameCube and Wii game, Twilight Princess. It's the second remaster of a Zelda title on the Wii U, following The Wind Waker HD.

Twilight Princess HD features reworked graphics with primarily new textures, giving the game a cleaner look and feel. The original had just a 480p resolution on both the GameCube and Wii, Twilight Princess HD instead has a 1080p resolution, resulting in additional clarity, especially for faraway objects and precise aiming. Most textures in the game are touched up with added details, with notable examples including Link's hair, Zant's armor, and several background textures.

You can get the Twilight Princess Wolf Link bundle now.

Bleeding Edge TV 567: How To Speed Up Xbox One with SSD

I haven't been liking how slow Fallout 4 is on the Xbox One due to massive loading times, and figured I would do something about it. Rather than running Fallout 4 from the internal 5400RPM Xbox One hard drive, or even my external 7200RPM drive, I decided it was time to hook up a solid state SSD to my Xbox One in order to take advantage of the much faster speeds that the technology has to offer.

The problem with SSDs? External SSD drives are expensive. So instead, I made my own. In this video I show you how to make your own external SSD, and in the process, vastly speed up your Xbox One loading times!

You'll need these two items:

Games are a popular holiday gift, and that's why they're a staple in our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide. Up next is the New Nintendo 3DS XL system - yes, that is "New" capitalized. It's part of the name.
