Depending on your situation you may require a router that has more capabilities than your average router. Have a large area you want covered with a stable connection or receive a large amount of guest activity while gaming? Your average router has specifications that can cover a large area to a certain extent. Wi-Fi connections can become unstable or staggered because of the hardware and software limitations.

I already covered what the best gaming router under 100 dollars is in a previous review. Interested check it out here.

In this review we are going to go over what is the best gaming router under 300 dollars, before getting things started it is important that I go over what you can expect from routers within this price range. A router under this price range will have slightly more features than your average router. This does not equate to a faster or the fastest Wi-Fi connection. Optimally more features will allow a heavier load of traffic on a network without fear of lag for any device connected. The reality is most fail to do even the most basic function such as being compatible with most devices.

MSi GS63VR Stealth Pro Review – What a Great Gift.

msi gs63vr stealth pro

Normally yours truly is not into too many flashy items. I prefer a more practical approach with most items. That being said what I got given for 2017’s Christmas was completely unexpected and awesome. I was gifted a MSI laptop.

Truly an upgrade from what I was working with. This was amazing as it opened all kinds of opportunities for me. Two years in this thing is still looking as good new.

It keeps up with more than enough CPU power to spare. Of course that is not say this brand or the Operating System (OS) is flawless. I have seen my fair share of crashes for a number of reasons.

The Best Wifi Router for Gaming. Is There Really Such a Router?

Could there really be such a tool in existence? Truth is the best WiFi router for gaming will depend on your setup. In most cases a five hundred dollar router will not be required at all despite being advertised as the best WiFi router for gaming.

A router will have an affect in the speed of your overall connection but hardly will ever impact what matters most and that is latency. Latency is the time it takes for information to be decoded from a sender to a receiver.

Though a router can help to boost the time it takes for the information to travel it is inperceivable to a majority of players since the change happens in milliseconds. Even for the most experienced the change is hard to detect with the naked eye.

The software and hardware limitations of a modem will hardly improve the situation either.

Pros and cons of the Nintendo Switch – Why did it do so good?

nintendo switch with joy con

Certainly the tale of an underdog. Even its own creators were caught by surprise. The Nintendo Switch was released into the gaming industry with not much being expected from it as a console or entertainment system.

The specifications were exactly as advertised which is what made most savants overlook the value. I could understand why anyone looking for a console had much better options in terms of specifications. The same remains true when considering this an entertainment system.

All that is not even accounting for PC which beats the competition when comparing specifications. Most recent PC models are more that capable of serving as both.

So what are the pros and cons of the Nintendo Switch. Why did it do so good in terms of sales for what it was capable? Well when it comes down to it content is what matters.

Fallout 4 Review – Replay is Possible

meeting dogmeat

On November 10th 2015 Bethesda released their latest continuation into the series. Fallout 4 has an interesting aspect most video games fail to capture.

Fallout 4 is a video game whose lifespan is not bound by lack of content or no longer supported. In most cases a video game will usually see a limited lifespan and fade into obscurity. Even with a remastering or DLC most video games simply lack replay value whether it is a multiplayer only, single player only or incorporates both.

Fallout 4 is set in Boston 10 years after the events that happened in Fallout 3. This is what I love about this game is it entirely up to you on how you want to start. You have the option of playing through the vanilla video game as the Sole Survivor of Vault 111. You also have the option to spice things up and add some mods regardless if you are on console or PC. Or ignore everything and just explore as you see fit.

Xbox One S Review – Good but not Great Console

xbox one s 1TB starter bundle

On August 2016 came the Xbox One S an iteration of the Xbox One developed by Microsoft that would compete with the PS4, the PS4 Slim, the PS4 Pro, the Nintendo Wii U and the Nintendo Switch. While certainly an upgrade from the original model the Xbox One S still has shortcomings.

The One in the name stands for all in one entertainment system. At launch this console had little to offer the gaming community let alone the entertainment industry so the name felt out of place. Most of the entertainment the Xbox One S could offer was made available by other gaming systems or entertainment services.

Now in 2019 the name feels much more proper yet this is not to say that the Xbox One S is the best or greatest console currently in the market.

Fallout 76 Beta – My Experience

Fallout 76 Beta Main Menu

Bethesda is back at it again with the Fallout series this time bringing us to the post-apocalyptic wasteland of West Virginia.

Fallout 76 is set 25 years after the bombs dropped. It is up to you and other vault dwellers to explore the vastly changed landscape. All kinds of perils will lie ahead of your journey as you make your way across the wasteland.

Fallout 76 is the first time Bethesda implements multiplayer in the series. NPCs are in the game but only in the form of robots and vendors. This was done in hopes of increasing player interactions. It certainly makes for a weird feeling of complete desolation in some parts of the map. Yet it feels right considering it is 25 years after the bombs were dropped.
