  • Divinity: Fallen Heroes Is On Pending As Larian Studios Focuses On Baldur’s Gate III
  • Divinity: Fallen Heroes Is On Pending

Divinity: Fallen Heroes is a new tactical game oozing with RPG elements, set in the universe of critically acclaimed RPG Divinity: Original Sin 2. Command The Lady Vengeance, and lead its crew through over 60 hand-crafted missions where your actions and choices define the story.
Larian Studios announced Divinity: Fallen Heroes early this year. The game was supposed to launch sometime in 2019, but as the end of the year looms, we haven’t got any additional information, and it seems we’ll be waiting a while for any updates. While Divinity: Fallen Heroes isn’t outright cancelled, in a new forum post, Larian has announced the game in on hold for an indefinite amount of time.
Larian added that Fallen Heroes was shaping into a “great game,” but it seems they and co-developer Logic Artists just have too much on their plates. Larian is, of course, working on Baldur’s Gate III, while Logic Artists are keeping occupied with their Expeditions tactics games. Here’s  what Larian had to say about the fall of Fallen Heroes.
It is with a profound sense of regret that today we announce Divinity: Fallen Heroes has been put on hold, as we fondly celebrate the work done so far. We’ve been working with Logic Artists for over a year since before the announcement on March 27, 2019. Though enthused by the reception of the announcement and the energy of our fans, we have taken many things into consideration over the course of the last few months, and today we’re ready to talk about its future.
Originally scheduled for a November 2019 release, it has become clear to everyone involved that the game will need far greater development time and resources than are available now to bring it to fruition, in a fun and sustainable way. We’re sorry for the players excited for Fallen Heroes, who will have to wait an unspecified period of time, but we strongly believe that bringing Fallen Heroes to fans should be done in a timeline that allows it to be developed soundly. We value the work that everyone has put in to Fallen Heroes, and though we lament its status as of now, we all agree that there’s a great game in there that will sometime reach the players who await it. The release date is still complicated but look out for Baldur's Gate III debuting next year.

A 16-year-old boy, addicted to the popular online PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) framed his own kidnapping and requested ransom from his parents after they took away his mobile phone, police said on Monday.
According to the reporter, the teenager, went missing on October 11, after informing his parents that he was on his way to visit his friend, they said, adding the parents later filed a police complaint. "He left for Mumbai. On the way when the bus in which he was travelling stopped at Sholapur city of Maharashtra, he got down. He took a phone from a passer-by and called his mother disguising his voice saying “her son was abducted” and demanded Rs 3 lakh (£3,309.37)  for his “release”.
On October 12, the boy came back to Hyderabad and booked an online ticket to Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh where his maternal grandparents live. But, his mother got a message about the ticket booking and alerted police and a police team went to the central bus stand and traced him, Raidurgam police station Inspector S Ravinder said. They also added, the boy who secured very good marks in the class 10 exams, was not performing well in his studies and got addicted to playing the PUBG game after which he got grounded by his parents that took his mobile phone away. Which lead him to this terrible act.

  • AMD Ryzen Processor To Power Xiaomi’s New RedmiBook
  • AMD Ryzen Xiaomi’s RedmiBook

AMD's debuting in the ultra-thin notebook space marked a big win for the company and its fans. Always considered the underdog, the chip manufacturer is now giving a lot of headaches to Intel.
This is particularly due to the fact that TSMC's 7nm node has provided AMD with a big fabrication advantage, particularly when it comes to convincing users that the company's products are built using bleeding-edge fabrication processes.
Now after having featured on a Microsoft product, AMD's next destination is the upcoming Xiaomi RedmiBook. Xiaomi's RedmiBook lineup is currently powered by different variants of Intel processors, and AMD's entry will provide for sound comparison between the two companies' processors.
According to GizmoChina, the AMD processor powering the upcoming RedmiBook will be Ryzen 5 3550H. This chip can support eight threads, has a 2.1GHz base clock frequency and 35W TDP. Additionally, the publication also claims that the new RedmiBook will feature AMD's Radeon Vega 8 as its GPU. The upcoming RedmiBook will launch in exactly a week from now, on the 21st, so there isn't much time left before its specifications and features are officially confirmed.

Legacies season 3: Everything You Need To Know About The Next Series

  • Legacies season 3: Everything You Need To Know About The Next Series
  • Legacies season 3

We all missed the days of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, the memories will live with us forever. The both series has created a Legacy that lives on with the Legacies, which is currently going strong over on The CW.
Legacies stars a host of magical creatures/teens who must balance their studies with supernatural struggles of their own at the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. The popular spin-off has successfully retained what makes the franchise so popular while still carving out its own storyline within The Vampire Diaries world, so fans are of course loved to hear more about a potential third season.
So today I will be detailing everything you need to know about Legacies season three, so grab a cup coffee or a bottle of beer and join me right here. Am Rose manij am a die hard fan of TVD, The Originals & Legacies, I most research and follow up all news concerning the three series.
Legacies season 3 cast: Who will be back?
Now that The Vampire Diaries and The Originals are gone leaving us with heart broken, i smiles whenever i remembered how I watched TVD & TO with my friends sitting on the couch, with some bottles of beer as we argue to protect our favourite cast whenever they goes wrong... it's really fun you know, anyways let's get back on track. Legacies has become a sort of wayward home for many cast members who originally starred on one or both of these two shows. Assuming that everyone survives until the end of season two, here's who imagine will return to Legacies in season three:
  • Danielle Rose Russell as Hope Mikaelson (The Originals)
  • Aria Shahghasemi as Landon Kirby (The Originals)
  • Kaylee Bryant as Josie Saltzman (The Vampire Diaries)
  • Jenny Boyd as Lizzie Saltzman (The Vampire Diaries)
  • Matt Davis as Alaric Saltzman (The Vampire Diaries)

Also expect to see some original Legacies cast members return too, including Quincy Fouse as Milton "MG" Greasley and Peyton Alex Smith in the role of Rafael Waithe.

Legacies season 3 release date: When will it air?
While we're still waiting to hear if Legacies has been renewed for a third season, it seems likely that The CW will return to the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted again for at least one more year. If so, then season three will presumably start airing in October 2020, just like the first two seasons did. While it's too early to reveal what will happen in Legacies season three, don't be surprised if some more cast members from The Vampire Diaries and The Originals pop up in future episodes. I mean who won't love to see Hope parents or the Salvatore brothers? The season-two premiere already hinted as much with a reference to the villainous Kai Parker (Chris Wood), who killed Josie Saltzman's (Kaylee Bryant) mother.
After the episode aired, series creator Julie Plec confirmed to TVLine that this was "definitely not the last we've heard of him." "We'll keep laying little Kai Parker Easter eggs, because he is a massive part of the twins' backstory and mythology, which is something we plan on telling stories from for the entire series. While I know we'll never be able to get Chris Wood back for an entire series, it's certainly fun to keep him alive in the hopes that we'll get to see him in small doses over the course of the run of the show."
Legacies season 3 trailer: When can we see it?
Until Legacies is officially renewed for a third season, don't expect to see a trailer claw its way online. But when footage is made available, stop by here to watch it in full and hear how the clip will impact your favourite characters.

Sony Next-Gen (PS5) To Feature AMD 8C/16T Zen 2 CPU

No comments

  • Sony Next-Gen (PS5) To Feature AMD 8C/16T Zen 2 CPU
  • Playstation 5 Will Have AMD 8C/16T Zen 2 CPU

As the release date of next-gen (PS5) been revealed, we're digging out more information about the console, lately the Playstation 5 is confirmed to feature AMD 8C/16T Zen 2 CPU. 
Early this year, PS5 hardware specs was revealed through product code for the AMD custom silicon. We're slowly finding out more details and confirming the rumors. Japanese magazine Famitsu revealed to us that the PlayStation 5 does indeed include an 8C/16T chip based on AMD's new Zen 2 architecture.

  • CPU - AMD Custom Zen 2 Chip With 8C/16T On 7nm.
  • GPU - AMD Custom Navi Chip With;13TFLOPs (RX Vega 64 level).
  • RAM: 24GB GDDR6 (20GB @ 880GB/Sec) & 4GB For OS. Storage: Ultra-Fast SSD (1TB/sec+)
No doubt 8C/16T in the next-gen (PS5) is going to be a huge deal for game developers and gamers, as it will allow developers to build worlds far bigger than anything possible on current 8-core consoles. The 8-core CPUs in consoles is over a decade old now, whereas Zen 2 is fresh (debuted this year). Sony will be using a Radeon RDNA-based GPU inside of the PS5, so expect a second-gen Navi with hardware-capable ray tracing features. The Radeon RX 5700 series (and new RX 5500 series) both use Navi GPU designs on the first-gen Navi GPU architecture, while consoles should get something more specific to their respective designs. Is very good to hear that the next-gen console will posses a such feature.

Apple iPhone SE 2 Launch Date & Price Revealed, To Feature A13 Chip & 3GB RAM

  • iPhone SE 2 Launch Date & Price Revealed, To Feature A13 Chip & 3GB RAM
  • Apple iPhone SE 2 For $399 With A13 Chip & 3GB RAM

Apple will be launching iPhone SE 2 in first quarter of 2020 for $399. The phone will have an A13 chip, which is also being used in iPhone 11, along with 3GB RAM. This latest report comes from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (Via MacRumors), who has a reliable track record when it comes to Apple Devices.
With a starting price of $399, iPhone SE 2 will be the cheapest iPhone model on offer. Before the iPhone 8, which starts from $449, and ships with rather dated components. Read see the full speculated details of the phone below...

iPhone SE 2 features:
Ming-Chi Kuo has shared a list of the following iPhone SE 2 features:
  • A13 processor
  • Storage options: 64GB and 128GB
  • Colors: Space Gray, Silver and Product RED
Touch ID:
It has been mentioned before that iPhone SE 2 will have an iPhone 8 design, so this naturally puts features like Face ID out of the equation. Apple is expected use Touch ID again for this low-budget iPhone model, like they do with low-budget iPad models. Touch ID is also being used across the MacBook Pro line-up which shows that, despite being cheaper to use, Apple prefers to use it in high-end products too.

No wireless charging and 3D Touch:
Just like iPhone 8, we don’t expect to see any wireless charging in iPhone SE 2. However, to be competitive with other smartphones in 2020, Apple might want to surprise customers with such a basic feature. As expected, 3D Touch will not be a part of the new phone, since Apple is ditching it in favor of Haptic Touch across the whole iPhone line-up.

Who knows? Maybe Apple will re-uses the same camera system as they use in iPhone 11. The last generation iPhone SE was released with the same camera as iPhone 6s, which was not bad at all. This might mean that new model might have features like Deep Fusion, Night Mode, excellent video recording and the new camera app, which are all exclusive to iPhone 11 series for now. Oh men! With all that feature for $399, is going to be fabulous.
Battery life:
An iPhone 8-like design will mean that iPhone SE 2 will have a larger 5-inch display. A larger battery, combined with A13’s efficiency, and lower resolution display, will give the SE 2 superb battery life. Don't be surprise if the battery can stay a lifetime...(just kidding).
iPhone SE 2 is going to be a good deal to go for, Kuo  also suggests that customers who are still using iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s are likely to upgrade when SE 2 hits the market, due to its value proposition.

  • Legacies Season 2: Damon Salvatore & Elena Gilbert's Daughter Stephanie Salvatore To Appear On The Show

Damon Salvatore and Elena Gilbert's daughter Stephanie Salvatore, who was mentioned in Legacies Season 1 Episode 10 may make an appearance in the second season, which premiered this week, as speculated by fans. Read on..for more details..
Legacies Season 2's first episode debuts two days ago. The first episode showed that after discovering there may be a way out of Malivore, Hope becomes determined to find her way back to Mystic Falls. Alaric, who is still mentally unclear after being voted out as the headmaster by the honour council, continues to look into the mysterious night that Malivore was destroyed. As the students start to leave for summer vacation, Landon stays behind to keep an eye on Rafael, while MG heads to Atlanta to spend time with Kaleb's family. And while Lizzie spends the summer with Caroline in Europe, Josie searches for answers about the mysterious ascendant that Alaric was keeping from them.
Talking about the series, fans are eagerly waiting for the show to introduce Stephanie Salvatore, Damon Salvatore and Elena Gilbert’s daughter. She was mentioned in the 10th episode of season 1 titled There's A World Where Your Dreams Came True. It was a brief mention but it has raised hopes for the fans that there might be a chance to see the legacy of Damon and Elena continue on. Fans have started coming up with different theories of what supernatural creature would Stephanie Salvatore be.
Hopefully, in the upcoming episodes, we will get to see Damon and Elena’s kids. Fans speculate that Damon and Elena’s kids will be younger than the Saltzman twins. This speculation is backed up by what the showrunner Julie Plec told the audience at the San Diego Comic-Con. "When Damon and Elena finally had children, they'd be younger kids by now,” Julie shared.

Here's Some Reasons You Shouldn't Buy A PS4 This Black Friday

  • Here's Some Reasons You Shouldn't Buy A PS4 This Black Friday
  • Don't Buy PS4 This Black Friday Why? Here's Some Reasons

You're better off waiting for the PS5, even if you don't want it, the next-gen is worth waiting for. C'mon you can't just waste some bucks while the PS5 release date has been revealed, you've  waited up all this while, why not exercise more patience?. Rethink. If you've waited this long to consider purchasing the console, you should hold off for another 12 months. Why? Let give you some pep talk.
Did you recall that it's been six years since the launch of the current console generation? The original PlayStation 4 and Xbox One launched back in November 2013. This generation did see the first ever mid-cycle premium additions for both consoles in the PS4 Pro (in 2016) and Xbox One X (in 2017) to offer increased power to those looking for it, but the point is you've had loads of time to buy a PlayStation 4 if you've been desperate for one.
For y'all that have been waited till now, more than half a decade after its initial release, what's another 12 Months? Sony's next-gen console (PS5) will launch towards the Fall next year. With the next generation of console gaming on the horizon, don't you think is worth waiting for? Picking up a PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 4 Pro during this year Black Friday, do you think is a great idea? The PlayStation 4 is an incredibly popular machine. A big part of that is in its software library, which is the most diverse around today. 
Between JRPGs like Persona 5, the incredible God of War, or smaller titles like the upcoming MediEvil Remake, Sony has plenty of genres covered by first and second-party studios. Thanks to smart partnerships, they’re often the place to get exclusive content in third-party titles, too. We already know the PS5 will be backwards-compatible at least with PlayStation 4 titles, which means everything i just said above will come tenfolds, more horsepower to harness, potentially enhancing them in ways more impressive than reductions in load times. You just have one chance to enjoy God of War or Horizon: Zero Dawn for the first time, why not experience it on the hybrid console? Let's just keep games aside, there's the question of finance. We'd never define the value of a console for you, that’s entirely subjective, but it's worth noting the PS4 Pro still retails at a level that's not too far from its launch price.
You could opt for the base/slim PlayStation 4, but while the console has received updates such as the addition of High Dynamic Range in recent years, it's still essentially six year old hardware and will be seven by the time the PS5 launches. If you could just wait until Black Friday 2020, you may find yourself in a perfect console buying and you can thank me later, by then either you grab the brand new PS5 (maybe not at a discount sales) or the PlayStation 4 which will likely see a big discounts as retailers look to offload stock of the older generation. With 4K TVs dropping in price, it's arguably better to invest in a new screen in 2019 to ready yourself for the next generation on consoles, keep in mind this is not an order  we're imposing, we're trying to talk you out from buying the Sony current consoles (PS4 & PS4 Pro) which you may regret later. But if you insist on grabbing it, no problem that's cool, you can still purchase the next-gen next year and put the PS4 On your cabinet.

FIFA 20 Tops UK's September 2019 Physical Sales Charts: Borderlands 3 & Links Awakening Rounds The Top 3

No comments

  • FIFA 20 Tops UK's September 2019 Physical Sales Charts: Borderlands 3 & Links Awakening Rounds The Top 3
  • UK's September 2019 Physical Sales Charts

FIFA 20‘s taking the number one spot on the UK’s physical sales charts for the month of September 2019 is only somehow amazing. The third mainline Borderlands entry did finish out the month at second place, though. FIFA 20’s incredible success is despite having only been on the market for a total of five days when market research company GfK closed its count for September.
According to the report we got, FIFA 20’s physical sales numbers are down seven percent here in the UK for the month of September, compared to the sales of FIFA 19 in the same period last year. This could be due in part to digital sales being on the rise, though there currently exists no hard data to support such an assumption.
Speaking of Borderlands 3, its physical sales pale in comparison to those for Borderlands 2 in 2012. For its first month on the UK market, Borderlands 2 shifted about 48% more physical copies than Borderlands 3, but hey seeing a lot of gamers diving in with the latest entry raised our eye brows, making it one of the best 2K Games released so far.  The Links Awakening been on the top list is not surprising, the game tops U.K. video game sales chart last month and dominated The Amazon Bestseller Charts Worldwide. While Gears 5 rounded up to the top 5 list, no doubt the game has been most played Xbox game dethroning Fortnite.

The Full Top 10 List Is As Follows:
  1. FIFA 20 (EA)
  2. Borderlands 3 (2K)
  3. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (Nintendo)
  4. Gears 5 (Microsoft)
  5. NBA 2K20 (2K)
  6. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo
  7. The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan (Bandai Namco)
  8. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled (Activision)
  9. PES 2020 (Konami)
  10. Wreckfest (THQ Nordic)
The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan landed on the top 10 list, coming in at number seven. Another sports title, PES 2020, finished out the month in the number nine slot, while THQ Nordic’s Wreckfest rounded out the list in 10th place. Noticeably, Control from Remedy Games didn’t crack the top 10, but it wasn’t too far off, having closed the month at number 15. It would be fascinating to see if UK physical sales of last month influence that of the U.S.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Leaked Shows Off New Map, Boat & Vehicle's

  • Fortnite Chapter 2 Revealed, Shows Off New Map, Boat & Vehicle's
  • Fortnite Chapter 2 Leaked New Map, Boats & Vehicles

Recently on the Italian iOS app store, an image promoting the mobile version of Fortnite accidentally leaked details about the game’s next season titled Chapter 2.
This new chapter will introduce a new map, boat vehicles and possibly new default skins as seen in the leaked image.
As seen below the map appears to show three of the game's standard characters, but they're looking over a brand new setting. For starters, there's a river with boats speeding along - a vehicle type not previously seen in the game - and other unfamiliar locations can be spotted, too.
Fans have been expecting a big shake-up like this for some time, so is Season 10 the end of the game as we know it? Fortnite developer Epic Games has scheduled an end-of-season live event which will be taking place in-game at 2 pm ET / 11 am PT / 7pm BST on Sunday 13th October - it might well be worth keeping an eye on that to find out.

Samsung Might Drop A Cheaper Galaxy S10 Lite With A Snapdragon 855, 48MP Camera & Massive Battery

  • Samsung Might Drop A Cheaper Galaxy S10 Lite With A Snapdragon 855, 48MP Camera & Massive Battery
  • Samsung Cheaper Galaxy S10 Lite Snapdragon 855, 48MP Camera & Massive Battery

Thinking of getting a flagship device without emptying your wallet?  The Galaxy S10e might be a good idea. Considering that the price of the device has gone down by quite a bit, it appears to be a decent choice for a lot of users. However,  the South Korean giant might put giving its customers more options down the road, as a Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite might be in the works that want to carry around a potentially affordable, but capable device.
It’s being reported that the company is working on a phone with the model number SM-G770F and it’s believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite. The phone is rumored to have the same specifications as the rumored Galaxy A91 which is tipped to come with a 6.7-inch Full HD+ screen, Snapdragon 855, a quad-camera system on the back, a 32MP camera on the front, and a massive 4500mAh cell with the 45W charging technology that was introduced with the Galaxy Note 10 Plus.
The phone is expected to have 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of native storage, and it’s expected to expandable to 512GB with a microSD card. But that got me thinking I prefer the Galaxy  S10 Lite it sounds way better than the Galaxy S10e, however, the device isn’t expected to be announced anytime soon, which means the launch time might coincide with that of the Galaxy S11 series. It doesn’t really make sense for the company to announce a new addition to the Galaxy S10 family while revealing the Galaxy S11 after all.
Am seriously wondering how will they differentiate the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite and the rumored Galaxy A91. Another report claims that these might actually be the same devices, and two different names will be used for different markets. As for a potential release, the model will most likely be released only in Europe and Asia, and not in the U.S., but that doesn’t mean customers cannot order the device through third-party channels if they are willing to pay the extra shipping costs.
So tell me what you think, will you be considering getting the S10 Lite if is less expensive and save some bucks for lunch or are you going for higher flagships? Sound it off in the comments below.

iOS 13.2 beta 2 and iPadOS 13.2 beta 2 Released Here's The [Features & Changes]

No comments

  • iOS 13.2 beta 2 and iPadOS 13.2 beta 2 Released Here's The [Features & Changes]
  • iOS 13.2 beta 2 and iPadOS 13.2 beta 2

Apple just released iOS 13.2 and iPadOS 13.2 developer beta 2. Keep in mind that this update has a number of improvements and changes covering performance, UI updates, and more. Here is a list of all the new features and changes we have found in beta 2 so far. Not only iOS 13.2 and iPadOS beta 2, Apple also released tvOS 13.2 beta 2 and watchOS 6.1 beta 3. 
iPad Pro 11 users have been experiencing issues with the upgrade, am I right? The update might leave your iPad Pro bricked. A force restart might fix it. If that doesn't help, download the complete firmware from Apple Developer Center, put your iPad Pro in DFU mode and update via Finder/iTunes.
iOS 13.2 beta 2
Apple's releases notes for this update did not mention anything except the following resolved issue with NFC:
  • Fixed an issue which prevented reading certain TypeA–based electronic IDs on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. (55880800)
However, despite a missing changelog, and thanks to the Internet, we have been able to dig around and find a number of interesting new changes. Here is everything we have found so far while using iOS 13.2 beta on iPhone:
  • Performance is much better than beta 1, or any previous iOS 13.x release. It is very obvious when you swipe up to go to multitasking or switch between apps.
  • Camera app in iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro now supports changing video capture resolution and frame rate, right from within the app. Finally! However, it's ridiculous that this is only available for iPhone 11 models and not older ones.
  • The Haptic touch menu on home screen has been updated. It now allows deleted the app right from the menu. The rearrange apps option has also been renamed to 'Edit Home Screen'. This is the option which allows you to move the app icons around on the home screen.
  • Hide Link Previews' option has been removed from the Haptic touch menu and moved to the top of the preview as 'Hide preview'. This is subjective but it looks better now.
  • Music app has received some much needed attention. The Haptic Touch menu items have been rearranged yet again and this is the best arrangement since the menu was introduced. The changes are visible for both songs and albums.
  • There is a nice little shuffling animation when you shuffle music now.

  • Guilherme Rambo of 9to5mac has found a new hidden animation for noise cancellation options for next-generation AirPods

    • A number of new Emojis have been added to this release. Apple had announced these back in July on World Emoji Day. These new Emojis are based on Unicode 12.0 standard, and add diversity, food, animals and other emojis to the collection.
    • You can now change the skin tones for an even wider range of emojis.

  • Following the Siri debacle when Apple was caught listening to Siri conversations without consent, Apple had suspended the whole program and promised to add options to make it opt-in through a software update. iOS 13.2 beta 2 has these options, located in Settings > Privacy > Analytics & Improvements and Settings > Siri & Search. The former allows you to disable analytics for good, while the latter allows you to delete your Siri conversation history from Apple's servers. You also see a Splash screen when upgrading to iOS 13.2 beta 2, during setup. Apple still does not allow you to listen to your conversations though, which is an option provided by Google and Alexa.

    • The TV app now has an 'Add' button on the top right, instead of the confusing old button which did the same thing but wasn't obvious enough.
