Evolve: Abe 0

Lessons Learned from the Evolve Open Beta

You have probably played the Evolve open beta recently and are now wondering what’s going on. Right? Well according to Turtle Rock Studios, while some of us were complaining about either overpowered Hunters or Monsters what actually happened during the Evolve open beta was a bunch of even matches. With over 2.2 million matches that took place during the Evolve open beta, the infographic below illustrates just what really happened during the open beta. The results are a bit surprising. So now what is Turtle Rock Studios going to do with this data? When you have an open beta, you’re testing...

Pax South 2015 Indie Game Highlight: Adventures of Pip

As you can tell, Pax South was filled with Indie darlings. Today, let us introduce you to a game we actually loved during Pax Prime but totally dropped the ball on sharing: it’s Adventures of Pip. You play as Pip, an unlikely 1-pixel hero in a 32-bit world.

Pax South 2015 Indie Game Spotlight: Raising Hell

Continuing our tour around the Pax South Expo Hall, we find ourselves playing the devil trying to get out of hell in a game called Raising Hell. Hell is freezing over and you need to get out. You play as Damian. Teleport, slice angels and demons, shoot bazookas, and generally raise hell!† In this flagship game from Mish Mash Machine, we found ourselves another addictive gem. Simply tapping on the screen you control Damian, who can heal, shield or pick up various weapons to fight against the heavenly forces in hell. While it may sound easy, you can only imagine how...

Pax South 2015 Indie Game Spotlight: Texas Twist Poker

It was only natural that we found our way to the poker table during Pax South. Texas Twist™ Poker will change the way you typically think about playing poker. It’s not played with chips and cards on a traditional poker table. Instead, Texas Twist Poker is a mobile puzzle game where players try to get the best poker hand while navigating through a cube. While this might sound simple enough, for every move you make there is a twist that happens that alters the cube and could potentially alter the hand that you might be planning. Sure, it may sound a...

CES 2015: Audiofly™ Showcases the AF240 and AF250

Audioflytm definitely grabbed our attention at the International CES 2015 floor weeks with a pair of headsets that scream “luxury and comfort” at first sight. Ok, so I’m mocked by other RFMag writers for my couch-cushion-on-your-head analogy I’ve used before for other headsets. But Audioflyteased me into saying it again with their CES-showcased over-ear headphones, the AF240 and the AF250. We value quality materials in our devices just as much as we do with their performance. As Audiofly’s AF240 and AF250 strive to excel at both, we had no choice but to get a closer look…   Each headset is...


CES 2015: New Audio-Technica Gaming Headsets Announced

RFMag dove into Audio-Technica’s gaming headsets in the middle of last year when we reviewed their closed-ear gaming headset, the ATH-AG1. It was quite the high-end headset with a “high-end” price. Still, those willing to take such a financial plunge were rewarded with the rich high-quality sound one should expect for that cost. However, many gamers seldom stray beyond $250 when they’re in the hunt for a gaming headset. At the International CES 2015, Audio-Technica targeted that very audience as they unveiled their new pair of $199.95 headsets: the open-ear ATH-PDG1 and the closed-ear ATH-PG1. Audio-Technica took what they learned...

Additionally, we even got a glimpse at the VÜ Wireless chargers in addition to the new BAND silicone watch band for the Moto 360.
