Ballistix Tactical Tracer DDR4 RGB 32GB 2667 MHz Review
We review all-new Ballistix Tactical Tracer DDR4 RGB 32GB 2666 MHz (quad/dual-channel) from Ballistix (Crucial subsidiary). It's not the fastest at 2667 MHz, but it is a 32GB kit that can be tweaked over 3000 MHz easily. It's pretty cool with a new configurable RGB implementation and runs XMP 2.0 memory profiles on Intel platforms as well. Join us as we review not some nice bars of memory, it's fitted with a new style and design as well.

Then there's gamer grade memory for the high-end enthusiasts, which is what we will look at as Crucial, well, Ballistix has released their Tactical Tracer RGB memory. The new RGB series is hip and trendy alright, it increases the price of your average memory kit. Ergo this round Ballistix figured, let's just go for 2666 and 3000 MHz kits. On the Intel platform, the performance hit or benefit will not be that big, while in return you receive a little more RGB bling. And with memory prices still being sky-high that might be a very plausible idea, right? Grab some awesome memory, give it a black PCB and apply a notch of RGB and a cool heat spreader. With speeds starting at 2666 MT/s, Ballistix Tactical Tracer DDR4 RGB memory allows your also to monitor memory temperatures in real time and manipulate RGB lighting with the Ballistix M.O.D.

Colorful iGame GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Graphics Card Review
While Colorful may not have the big name reputation here in Europe or even in the US, they’re still a big player in the dGPU market. With a significant presence in Eastern markets, they deliver some very competitive graphics cards, and even more competitive prices. For gamers on a tighter budget, the GTX 1080 Ti likely isn’t on your shopping list. However, at under £150, the GTX 1050 Ti is a competitive solution for affordable PC gaming. The 1050 Ti has proven a big hit with many PC gamers who play at 1080p (or lower), in the eSports market, and for games like LoL, Fortnite, PUBG, Minecraft, etc.

Conan Exiles Review
The first challenge you’ll have to overcome in Conan Exiles is the download. For this review, I was offered a download code which clocked in at around 50 GB. Even with good, uninterrupted connection that’s still a few hours before you can actually play the game. Once you finally enter the Exiled Lands, though, you’ll find a survival game with a heavy leaning on RPG adventures.

Because of the recent incredible popularity of survival games, only now waning thanks to the breakthrough success of the Battle Royale genre, the marketplace is completely oversaturated. Most games tried to build on unique gimmicks or mechanics to try and stand above the crowd, and Conan Exiles is no different. As you may have guessed, the game is based on the Conan: The Barbarian, the universe created by writer Robert E. Howard almost a century ago.

Crucial MX500 M.2 1 TB Review
Crucial's MX500 is one of the most successful SSDs on the market, thanks to its great performance at an amazing price point. At launch only 2.5" SATA models were available, now the M.2 form factor drives are shipping, too - with no price increase.

Just like the SATA models, the Crucial MX500 M.2 uses an SMI controller instead of the Marvell chips we saw on earlier MX-Series drives. It also uses Micron's own 64-layer 3D TLC NAND chips, which is a first for the company. While TLC chips provide cheaper cost per gigabyte over more traditional MLC NAND, they also come with lower write performance. In order to work around that, Crucial designates a small, variably sized amount of memory as SLC cache, which writes a single bit to each TLC cell instead of three. While much faster, such a setup is basically a speed vs. size tradeoff. According to Crucial, the SLC cache is variably sized to provide the best performance.

Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition Review
Yep. Let’s not skirt around it in any way: we have another Wii U port here with Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition. To be clear, I adored the Wii U, and I think it had a great library of exclusives that I spent hundreds of hours on. I don’t regret my purchase one bit. But it’s hard to get excited about Switch releases when I’ve played so much of it all before.

But luckily, despite some extreme familiarity with Hyrule Warriors, Hyrule Warriors Legends and the Dynasty Warriors franchise and spin-offs, I once again found myself playing hours of Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition again on Nintendo Switch. On Wii U I played through the main story, Legend Mode, and enjoyed my time with it. On 3DS, I enjoyed playing as Linkle, but the severely reduced enemy count and lack of one-console local multiplayer made the experience, frankly, less fun, even if I could play it on the go. On Nintendo Switch I’ve dived deeper into other modes than ever before, and the ability to play as Linkle and all of the DLC characters I missed out on gave me hours of fun, made even better by local multiplayer on the big screen – my favorite part of every Warriors title.

State of Decay 2 Review
There are tons of prominent zombie games on the market. Whether they're open world affairs like Dead Rising or Dying Light, or something more competitive/co-operative like Day Z or Left 4 Dead, each offer their twists, but I'd happily say few are as unique as State of Decay.

The same is true for the sequel State of Decay 2, which launches on May 22, 2018, for Xbox One and PC.
