2016 is almost over and we all are re looking forward to what gaming has in store for us in 2017. 2016 seems to have been just the beginning, as next year will provide us with a virtual avalanche of games to play.

Anyway, without further ado, here are 30 of the most anticipated games of 2017.

Crackdown 3

We haven’t heard much about Crackdown 3since it was announced during Microsoft’s E3 press conference in 2014, but it is scheduled to drop sometime in 2017. This game’s most notable feature is a massive open world that is fully destructible thanks to the power of cloud computing. It remains to be seen whether or not the game will deliver on its promise of totally destructible environments, but if it does, it could set a new standard for open world games.

Cuphead

Cuphead combines the aesthetics of a 1930’s cartoon with classic Contra-like running and gunning action. This may sound like an odd combination, but it somehow works. Like some of the games on this list, this one has been in active development for quite some time. Despite that, it is clear that the developers are making this more than the simple boss-run game it was originally going to be. Let’s hope that Cupheaddoesn’t suffer another delay so that we can all finally play it.

Detroit: Become Human

Quantic Dream always delivers some of the most engrossing narrative experiences in gaming and its upcoming Detroit: Become Human seems poised to be yet another impressive title. Very little is known aboutDetroit, but it does deal with themes of prejudice and injustice as seen through the eyes of an android. It would be wise to have a box of tissues nearby while playing Detroit as it will no doubt be another Quantic Dream emotional roller coaster ride.

For Honor

Described by its developer as a “shooter with swords,” For Honor has a lot of potentials. The emphasis here is on melee combat with different types of medieval combat styles. Players must read their opponent’s movements carefully when facing them in single combat in order to prevail. For Honor’s multiplayer is reminiscent of a MOBA. However, Ubisoft insists that For Honor is its own type of game. We’ll find out if that is the case in 2017.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands

Because every Ubisoft game needs to beindistinguishable from one anotherGhost Recon is being reborn as an open world, cooperative shooter. For this latest installment, players will have to work together to take out all manner of nasty Bolivian drug cartels in a persistent online setting. Ghost Recon: Wildlands has the potential to fix The Division’s mistakes if it offers enough content to keep things fresh and interesting for players.

Gran Turismo Sport

To many, Gran Turismo has no equal in the world of car simulators (sorry, Forza), so the release a brand-new entry in the series is cause for celebration. This seventh installment is considered to be the “next generation” of Gran Turismo according to series creator, Kazunori Yamauchi. How this series will distinguish itself from previous games remains to be seen, but whatever the case may be, GT Sport will no doubt help to sell even more PlayStation 4 units when it is released next year.

Gravity Rush 2

The original Gravity Rush was one of the more interesting and quirky titles upon its initial release. Unfortunately, it never gained much traction due to it being a PlayStation Vita exclusive. With Gravity Rush 2 being a PS4 title, it should hopefully bring the franchise the attention it deserves. The game’s central mechanic which allows players to defy and manipulate gravity is unique and should help sell it to skeptical audiences.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Telltale Games and Guardians of the Galaxy are hot these days, so it should come as no surprise that the celebrated studio will be launching a game based on Marvel’s most famous outer space-based superhero team. Telltale proved that it can deliver quality superhero stories with its excellent Batman series and Guardians of the Galaxy should be no different. This game also has the benefit of releasing around the timeGuardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters — something that will no doubt boost its sales.

Hellblade

Ninja Theory has brought us amazing games like Heavenly SwordEnslaved: Odyssey to the West, and (the criminally underrated) DmC: Devil May Cry. It’s next title, Hellblade, is a departure from previous works in that it is a smaller indie title. Despite not having a bigger budget, Ninja Theory promises that Hellblade will deliver not just a quality title, but one that deals with the struggles of someone who suffers from a severe mental illness.

Horizon: Zero Dawn

The PlayStation 4 will start 2017 on a high note with the release of Horizon: Zero Dawn. This massive open-world game promises to deliver the very best that the PS4 and the PS4 Pro have to offer both regarding graphics and gameplay. Taking full advantage of the PS4 Pro’s HDR and 4K upscaling capabilities, Horizon promises to be graphically on par with PC games. No small feat, but given everything we’ve seen fromHorizon thus far, it looks like it’ll give hi-end PC games a run for their money.

Injustice 2

Everyone loves seeing superheroes beating the crap out of each other, and Injustice 2 will make good on delivering good old fashioned super-fisticuffs. Set in an alternate universe where most of DC’s heroes have become villains, this game will have the same quality fighting game experience that players of the original game expect. Forget about Batman v Superman, if you want to see DC’s big heroes throw down without feeling massively disappointed afterward,Injustice 2 is the game for you.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Medieval fantasy games are a dime a dozen (sometimes literally during a Steam sale), butKingdom Come: Deliverance will deliver us from monotony with its realistic medieval setting. A medieval RPG with no dragons or magic seems like a risk, but given the attention to detail the developers are bringing to this title, Deliverancehas the potential to offer players something truly unique even in a setting that is familiar.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The release of a new mainline entry in The Legend of Zelda series is always cause for jubilation, but considering how Breath of the Wild will be on the Nintendo Switch, the hype is more intense than ever. Breath of the Wildpromises to have an expansive open world for players to explore, as well as updated gameplay mechanics that serve to modernize this classic series. Expect this game to be a huge system seller.

Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite

With the release of Street Fighter V this past year, it was surprising to see Capcom announce a new Marvel vs Capcom game at this year’s PlayStation Experience. Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite will have the same manic gameplay the series in known for but with an updated roster of new Marvel superheroes. Even if this title doesn’t have any mutant characters (as the rumors suggest) it should still have plenty of heroes and villains (both from Marvel and Capcom) for players to try out.

Mass Effect Andromeda

Mass Effect 3’s ending was rather conclusive, so Bioware is taking this opportunity to start over again with Mass Effect Andromeda. Players will explore a completely different galaxy filled with strange planets, exotic creatures, and dangerous alien factions. Despite all the changes being introduced, this is still a Bioware game at its core, so expect a deep, rich story filled with memorable and relatable characters… even if they are blue or look like walking turtles.

Ni No Kuni 2

Ni No Kuni was a Studio Ghibli movie in video game form and was easily one of the more charming gaming experiences of the last generation. Expect Ni No Kuni 2 to have deep and satisfying RPG mechanics along with and a rich, and touching story set within a fantastical, colorful world. We don’t know much about Ni No Kuni 2, but it is definitely one to keep an eye out for — especially if you are a fan of JRPGs and Hayao Mizayaki movies.

Nier: Automata

Platinum Games has made a name for itself by producing some of the best action titles in recent years, and Nier: Automata looks to be another winner from the studio. This game has players taking on the role of a robotic girl who must explore a dystopian land filled with deadly automatons — some of which are the size of skyscrapers. The original Nier was a cult classic, but Automata has the makings of becoming a huge hit thanks to it being a Platinum Games project.

Nioh

Like Final Fantasy XV and The Last Guardian, Nioh has been in development for nearly ten years, so it is great to have it see the light of day. With no new Dark Souls or Ninja Gaiden titles in the near future, Nioh will be the go-to title for those who love excessively challenging games. Nioh may not as well-known as some of the other titles on this list, but it should quickly become a favorite for the most masochistic gamers out there.

Persona 5

Megami Tensei fans have been extremely patient, but at long last, Persona 5 is set to finally be released. Like with previous Personagames, players must find the right balance between grinding for levels and loot in order to become stronger, while also establishing relationships with other characters. 2017 will see the release of several Japanese RPGs andPersona 5 will no doubt be a highlight.

Prey

This reboot of the Prey franchise is returning to the series’ roots of being a space-based survival horror game. The player must navigate a space station full of monsters and find upgrades along the way that will help them survive. From what we’ve seen so far, this one is looking to be a visual stunner and should provide players with an alternative horror game to Resident Evil 7. Also, it has zero gravity sections, and you can never go wrong with those.

Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption was one of the best games of the last generation, and a sequel is finally on the way. We know very little about Red Dead Redemption 2, but Rockstar Games has an excellent track record when it comes to its open-world games, and it is expected that this title will be every bit on par with the previous game and the Grand Theft Auto series. Let’s just hope that Rockstar can deliver on the promised Fall 2017 release date.

Resident Evil 7

One of 2017’s early heavyweights is none other than Resident Evil 7. Though this game may seem like a radical departure, it is actually bringing back the survival horror aspect that has been missing in recent years. Resident Evil 7 is scary enough on its own, but when played in VR, it will be one of the most terror-inducing games ever released. Have a fresh pair of adult diaperson standby when playing this one.

Rime

This once former PlayStation 4 exclusive blends elements seen in Team Ico games and anime in order to deliver what appears to be a very different sort of gaming experience. There hasn’t been much new information about Rime, but we haven’t forgotten about this little title and we hope to finally play it next year.

Scalebound

Any game that features giant dragons is enough to warrant attention, but when it is being developed by one of today’s hottest studios, it should definitely be on folks’ radar. Scaleboundwill have players control not only a human but his dragon companion as they travel the land of Draconis to rid it of evil. Fans of the Xbox One are in for a treat with this latest offering from Hideki Kamiya and Platinum Games. Dragon on dragon action? Sold.

Sonic Mania

Sonic the Hedgehog games are at their best when they’re in 2D, and with Sonic Mania, the series is going back to its roots to deliver the most authentic Sonic experience we’ve had in years. Though Sonic Mania is an obvious love letter to the glory days of the franchise, it introduces some new gameplay features (along with smoother animations) that fans and newcomers alike will appreciate. Sonic Maniawon’t sell a bazillion copies, but it will be one of the most enjoyable games of 2017.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole

South Park: The Stick of Truth was (surprisingly enough) a well put together title that many enjoyed so it was guaranteed that a sequel would follow. Like the last game, The Fractured But Whole is a turn-based adventure where players get to explore the town of South Park and engage with some of its more… colorful denizens. This game will not be for the timid, so make sure to be well prepared for an onslaught of offensive humor while playing.

State of Decay 2

If you can’t get enough zombie killing in your games, then State of Decay 2 will satisfy your craving to murder the undead. For this sequel, players will get the chance to team up with friends to smash zombie skulls together. With no new Dead Rising game for Xbox One in 2017,State of Decay 2 should be a great substitute.

Tekken 7

2017 will see the release of a number of exceptional fighting games, and one of the biggest will be Tekken 7. With Virtua Fightermissing in action, Tekken 7 now stands as the king of 3D fighting games. Expect Tekken 7 to not only be a hit at home but also at national and international fighting game tournaments. Despite all the competition it faces next year,Tekken 7 should bring new life to the classic franchise.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

Uncharted’s Chloe hasn’t popped up in quite some time, so it is great to not only see her return to the series but star in her very own adventure. Naughty Dog has previously stated that Nathan Drake’s days of adventuring are over, so having Chloe — along with Uncharted 4’s Nadine — take up the reins, even if just for a DLC, is a brilliant move. Though not yet confirmed, do not be surprised if this is a darkerUncharted game given the take-no-prisoners, shoot-first-ask-questions-later personalities of both Chloe and Nadine.

Vampyr

Dontnod Entertainment impressed us with the imaginative Life is Strange, and it appears that the studio will continue to give the gaming world something fresh with Vampyr. Here, players will take on the role of a doctor who was turned into a vampire. Though the good doctor must kill to live, he can eavesdrop on his potential victims to see if they have the right type of blood he needs — and more importantly — if they actually deserve to die.

Xiaomi Is Planning To Launch A Foldable Smartphone – Video

Published

Xiaomi is definitely one brand we should keep an eye on this year. After the successful launch of their Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 They have been working round the clock to release amazing devices and the awesome part about it is that they even have plans of coming to Africa permanently this year.

Xiaomi Foldable Phone

The first video of Xiaomi’s foldable smartphone was posted by popular twitter leakster @evleaks earlier in January but has now be confirmed by Xiaomi’s president Lin Bin, who tested out the device on camera.

The smartphone can be folded both sides, quickly converting the tablet to a portable android smartphone. This means that, when both sides aren’t in use what is left looks like a wide, smartphone-like device complete with curved edges on either side.

This is definitely a nice move from Xiaomi. I wonder what this device would be called. We’ll have to wait till the Mobile World Conference holding in February to find out.

Nokia 9 PureView: Expected release date, specifications, price and more 41

Nokia 9 PureView which many have been waiting for happens to be one of the most important smartphones coming our way in 2019. As leaks have suggested, Nokia 9 PureView will be feature with five cameras on the rear, making it the world’s first smartphone with penta-lens camera setup. Here are all rumours we’ve heard surrounding Nokia 9 PureView, including its potential release date, features, specifications, and more.

Nokia 9 PureView: Expected release date, specifications, price and more 42

Nokia 9 PureView

Nokia 9 PureView is not going to look exactly  the company’s recently released lineup of devices, including the Nokia 7.1 and Nokia 8.1. Instead, the upcoming smartphone will be heavily inspired by the original Nokia 1020 but with a contemporary design.

Nokia 9 PureView: Expected release date, specifications, price and more 43

However, the current design appears to be slightly different. While a penta-lens camera system continues to be there, one can also notice bezels above and below the screen. Meanwhile, the notch is missing from the recently leaked renders.

Nokia 9 PureView: Hardware, software

Nokia 9 PureView will be powered by the previous generation Snapdragon 845 processor and not the latest Snapdragon 855 chipset. We have also learned that the phone will come with 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The Nokia 9 PureView is also said to have an in-display fingerprint scanner, first for any Nokia-branded smartphone.The phone will run Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box. Nokia 9 PureView is code-named “Olympic”.

Nokia 9 PureView: Release date, expected price

Although not confirmed, Nokia 9 PureView might get launched sometime later this month. According to Nokia Anew’s sources, HMD Global plans to launch its next-generation flagship in late January. That would put the launch date after CES 2019 and before MWC 2019.
There’s no word at what the device might cost. Suffice to say, it will cost more than the Nokia 8 Sirocco, which was launched in India at Rs 49,999( #258,000 ).Given the Nokia 9 PureView will be the world’s first smartphone with a penta-lens camera setup, expect it cost even more.

Nokia 9 PureView: Penta-lens camera setup

Perhaps the biggest highlight of the Nokia 9 PureView will be its camera.Nokia 9 PureView with seven holes on the back of the phone, five of which house five camera lenses. The other two are for the LED Flash and proximity sensor. Each of the seven circular cutouts, arranged in what looks like a circle, appears to have the same size. Clearly, this penta-lens camera setup will be based on Zeiss’ multi-lens patented zoom camera tech. At the moment, it’s not clear how the five-lenses camera setup works.

How Google Plans On Replacing Android With Fuschia OS Soon

Published

on

You probably don’t need telling that Android is a very powerful and versatile operating system but Google is working on something that might end up as the direct replacement  – Fuschia.

How Google Plans On Replacing Android With Fuschia OS Soon 44

In this post, I’ll be explaining why Fuschia may actually replace Android
Kernels
Kernels are the core of any operating system, they provide the basic mechanisms around which the os can be built. A lot of the problems Android faces today is as a result of the fact it was built around the linux kernel whicj was not originally intended for it. 
As a matter of fact,  Android OS was originally meant for digital cameras so on it’s core it isn’t exactly specialized for what a smartphone should do
So what about Fuschia?
Fuschia is based on a completely different Kernel with 2 key benefits.
1. It is designed with the smart connected feature in mind
2. It’s more specific in its code and can be built on a wide range of devices
This kernel is called Zircon .
 So what’s the benefit ?
The reason that Fuschia is powerful is that this kernel runs on completely everything from phones abd TVs to Fridges and traffic lights.
One OS for everything. As more devices enter people’s homes, this would mean seamless integration among devices.
Your music could switch to your speaker when you enter a room and continue in your car when you get in.
Also Fuschia would be built around the idea of voice commands. Less tapping , More talking.
Fuschia would also solve one of the major problems of Android which is Fragmentation.

Fragmentation
Fragmentation is the reason most Android phones don’t perform as well as their hardware is capable of.
This exists because Android is a bit of a mess. It has software, kernel and drivers all working together in a slightly different configuration on each device.
That’s why Google just can’t push an update to any device out there. These 3 aspects have to be decoupled manually.
Google has little control of how users experience Android on 95% of phones.
This is a problem because these OEMs don’t have an incentive to keep your device updated. They prefer you get a new device if you want to upgrade so they can make more money.
Fuschia is cleaner built with updates in mind. Fuschia would help Google regain control of the end user software experience.
Fuschia is also written on the Flutter software development kit which is important because this runs on Android too. This would make sure Android apps run on it. You don’t expect Google to start from scratch with the already vast library of apps and games available.

So the big question –
When will Fuschia Replace Android
Considering that brands always make the 10th version of their products seem like the peak of their current product line. Android 10 might be replaced by Fuschia OS.
If it’s not, then we should be looking at the next couple of years.

Unbelievable – Glo, 9mobile, NTEL Customers To Be Cut Off From Calling Other Networks

Unbelievable - Glo, 9mobile, NTEL Customers To  Be Cut Off From Calling Other Networks 45
NCC has given MTN and Airtel approval to bar Glo and 9mobile customers from calling their network over failure to pay Interconnect Debt.

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has granted disconnection approval to mobile network operators (MNOs) to disconnect owing colleagues over rise in interconnect debt and failure of the affected operators to pay.

Unbelievable - Glo, 9mobile, NTEL Customers To  Be Cut Off From Calling Other Networks 46

NCC has asked MTN, Airtel and IHS to disconnect, on partial basis, services to Globacom, Ntel (MNOs) and interconnect exchange points including Breeze, Exchange, Solid, Medallion and Niconnx.

The implication of this development is that over 35 millions of subscribers would soon start to experience service disruptions.

While the affected operators have between the next 10 and 21 days, starting from 18th Dec to make amends or risk disconnections,

The Commission also said it has approved the Disconnection of Ntel and Globacom from the facilities of IHS in accordance with Section 103 of the Nigerian Communications Act 2003 and the Guidelines on Procedure for Granting Approval to Disconnect Telecommunications Operators.

The Commission informed that 9Mobile, Smile and Swift are also to be disconnected from IHS facilities and ATC Wireless Infrastructure Limited.

“At the expiration of 10 days from the date of this notice, subscribers on the network of Ntel and Globacom will no longer be able to make calls to Airtel and MTN, but will be able to receive calls. Furthermore, Ntel and Globacom will be disconnected from the facilities of IHS.”

Gionee Mobile Is Officially Bankrupt As Company Files For Liquidation In Court

Gionee Mobile Is Officially Bankrupt As Company Files For Liquidation In Court 47
A few weeks ago I made a post regarding Gionee’s financial woes being the possible reasons why we haven’t seen new phones from Gionee. In case you missed that post you can find it here.

The same day I made the post a Gionee Nigeria staff called me and made threats regarding the post saying they would take action against me for publishing such content which was quite laughable. I don’t take down content that is true to please any brand. I also believe he was quite oblivious of the current position of his employers so I would disregard the threat.

Gionee Mobile Is Officially Bankrupt As Company Files For Liquidation In Court 48

The news reaching me now is that the company has officially entered bankruptcy.

A court in Shenzhen has accepted the application for liquidation bankruptcy by Huaxing Bank. This may still turn into a company reorganization – Gionee hired restructuring consultants last week. Founder Liu Lirong thinks that the company can turn its fortunes around in 3-5 years.

However, Gionee owes a total of CNY 20.2 billion (around $3 billion) to 648 creditors. About half of the debt is to banks. Earlier this year the company failed to pay suppliers. Ad agencies haven’t been paid either.

The company’s money problem started when the founder and chairman Liu lost a CNY 1 billion bet in a casino.

Liu admitted in the interview that Gionee’s total debts amount to 17 billion yuan ($2,447,065,000), with 10 billion yuan($1,439,450,000) of this owed to banks, 5 billion yuan($719,725,000) to upstream suppliers and about 2 billion to advertising agencies.

If nothing spontaneous happens in 3 – 5 years and the executives can’t avoid gambling, this will be the end of Gionee Electronics and Smartphones.
