Halo 5: Guardians comes next week - its features you should know

Halo 5: Guardians is available for download after October 20, 2015; scheduled to be released on October 27, 2015, exclusively for Xbox OneHalo 5 is a first-person shooter video game developed by 343 Industries and published by Microsoft Studios. It's the first game in Microsoft's beloved sci-fi shooter series that's been built specifically for the Xbox One.

Halo 5: Guardians

About Halo 5: Guardians

Part of the Halo franchise, this is the second original Halo to come out of 343 Industries instead of Bungie. The first, Halo 4, came out on Xbox 360 on November 6th, 2012. Halo 5: Guardians is a Halo game as the second chapter in the John-117 storyline of the Reclaimer Saga and the sequel to Halo 4. One of Halo franchise - Halo: Spartan Strike flashes since its release, the new game coming next week would be sure to surprise players.


Halo 5: Guardians features

  • Halo 5 will feature a brand-new community system called Spartan Companies, which will allow for up to 100 players to more easily connect with friends and like-minded players. 
  • Halo 5 offers a twisting storyline starring both longtime protagonist Master Chief and newcomer Spartan Locke.
  • All of Halo 5's upcoming downloadable multiplayer maps will be totally free. 
  • It's very unlikely you'll die unless you're playing on Heroic or harder, and that changes the feel of the game significantly. 
  • The game brings four-player co-op back to Halo. When playing solo, you can issue orders to your teammates, and, for the first time in the series, can revive your pals when they've fallen in battle.

Halo 5 Vs. Destiny

The two are plenty similar, especially when it comes to naming conventions (plenty of Guardians, Osiris, etc.) but Halo still has the richer story. Destiny has changed the way we think about shooters. 
  • Destiny's guns have real impact. When you shoot an enemy, you feel the shot connect. Halo 5′s shooting feels kind of floaty by comparison. 
  • While I never really noticed it before, the HUD in Halo is really distracting. I prefer the minimalism in Destiny.
  • In Destiny, weapons really matter. You don't simply discard a gun when you run out of ammo and grab a new one. Sometimes you gain a real emotional attachment to your weapons. Halo 5's weapons are disposable.
  • Halo 5's campaign is fully co-op, which is sort of weird. Even in Destiny, outside of strikes, I can play solo. 
  • Destiny mixes multiplayer and single-player seamlessly, and since you're always trying to improve your character there’s a real sense of ownership, right down to the tremendous amount of customization options. Halo 5 isn't the only game to fall behind in this measure. Something like Star Wars: Battlefront or Titanfall also miss out since you don't really have this blending of solo and multiplayer content or this notion that your characters actually matter.

dragomon hunter

Dragomon Hunter is a cute and colorful member of a long line of usurpers to the Monster Hunter throne, though there's probably room for quite a few and the free-to-play PC MMO seems to stand adjacent anyhow. The gameplay is action oriented and requires individual basic attacks to be aimed, much like Dragon Nest and Tera. Along with four different classes, pet companions and more, Dragomon Hunter paves the way as X-Legend's greatest title. French version and American version. 

Aeria Games also announced the all-star cast who will lend their voices to Dragomon Hunter recently! In addition to localized voiceover in English and French, the anime-style MMORPG will feature the option to switch to the original Japanese voices. Players or fans will be able to enjoy performances from some of their favorite voice actors.

  • Kanae Itou, Shugo Chara
Its North America and Europe version released in both English and French. If you want to play on American server or French server, use a VPN service to unblock the geographic restrictions and get a fast speed. VPNs allow users to securely access a private network and share data remotely through a specific tunnel.

Tree of Savior will launch International CBT2 this month

Tree of Savior's Global Closed Beta 2 is scheduled to begin in October, the exact date haven't been published. The game is developed by IMC Games, founded by Mr Hakkyu Kim, also known as the "father of Ragnarok Online" since he led the game's development back in the early days at Gravity.

Tree of Savior CBT2

Marikim, admin of Tree of Savior, has announced that the upcoming second international CBT will be set this month. This will effectively double the population from August's initial beta. Existing testers from first CBT plus 5,000 new testers, more than 10,000 beta testing participants in total will be given the opportunity to test Tree of Savior for approximately one full month! 

With the upcoming beta around the corner, prepare yourselves with the Newbie Tips prepared by seasoned testers. If you want to shoot for a key, the best advice we can give you is to register on the official site of Tree of Savior, as that is where the studio drew its testing pool last time around.

Some regions have already gotten its publisher, such as South Korea, China, and even Indonesia. Is IMC Games really launching Tree of Savior as a global game for the English market on Steam? The answer is, no, this Steam version is just for players who do not have local publishers. Tree of Savior is also awaiting Open Beta in South Korea. All Korea players can play its OBT then. 

Player blocked by the game because your location don't authorized by the game can do a tricky to get access this game. This method is called a 'VPN' or 'Virtual Private Network'. VPN service is a highly recommended method for bypassing geo-restrictions. It is like a turbocharged proxy system that helps you to be completely anonymous online. Connect to a Korea server or China server to change your IP address to server's IP. VPN can quite easily to match up an IP address with its owner, and hide your physical location.

The difference between Broadband, VPN and Proxy

Broadband

Broadband is a wide bandwidth data transmission with an ability to simultaneously transport multiple signals and traffic types. Even though information signals generally travel between 40% and 70% of the speed of light in the medium no matter what the bit rate, higher rate services are often marketed as "faster" or "higher speeds". 

Broadband service is defined as requiring transmission channels capable of supporting bit rates greater than the primary rate which ranged from about 1.5 to 2 Mbit/s by standards group CCITT in 1988In the US National Broadband Plan of 2009 it was defined as "Internet access that is always on and faster than the traditional dial-up access".

On January 29, 2015 the FCC voted to update its broadband benchmark speeds to 25 megabits per second (Mbit/s) downloads and 3 Mbit/s for uploads. The 4/1 Mbit/s previous standard set in 2010 is outdated and inadequate, the FCC found.


VPN

A virtual private network (VPN) extends a private network across a public network, such as the Internet. A VPN is created by establishing a virtual point-to-point connection through the use of dedicated connections, virtual tunneling protocols, or traffic encryption. A VPN gives a computer an IP address on a distant network. The VPN software will usually manipulate the computer routing tables to change the default route.

Generally speaking, there are only two types of VPN: the remote-access or connecting a computer to a network, and the site-to-site or connecting two networks. Remote-access is used inside one building only, while site-to-site is outside the office.


Proxy

In computer networks, a proxy server is a server (a computer system or an application) that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from other servers. Proxies were invented to add structure and encapsulation to distributed systems. Today, most proxies are web proxies, facilitating access to content on the World Wide Web and providing anonymity.

There are also different kinds of proxy servers, such as Proxy Servers (open servers), HTTP Proxy Servers, SOCKS Proxy Servers, Public Proxy Servers, Private Proxy Servers, and Web Proxies. Each of them has different methods of providing online privacy.

VPN VS Proxy

By principle, VPN and proxy are the same. But VPN works differently which makes it more reliable than proxy sites. It is very important that you know they are the same and how they are different from each other.

Both VPNs and proxy sites hide your real IP address and therefore hiding your real identity. Your web traffic is being routed to a proxy server or VPN server. It will not appear as coming from your computer. A proxy site can be thought of as a web filter, so as a VPN.

But here's the main difference between VPNs and proxy sites in terms of reliability. Unlike VPN servers, proxy servers do not have to devote resources to encrypting all traffic that passes through them, and therefore can accept simultaneous connections from a great many more users (typically tens of thousands). VPN traffic is encrypted while normal proxy doesn't offer encryption. With this problem, proxies are not totally safe if you're in a region such as in the Middle East where there is a very strict Internet censorship. Similarly, using proxy while surfing the net in a Wi-Fi hotspot is not guaranteed Internet safetyA VPN service encrypts all of your traffic, replacing your ISP and routing ALL traffic through the VPN server, including all programs and applications.

How to lower ping in Dota 2

Dota 2 is a multiplayer online arena video game developed by Valve Corporation. Dota 2 offers the highest video game competition bonus. Although lots of players indulging themselves in this game, the bonus is only for winners. You may have pay a lot on your Internet because to play this game require a fast enough network to enable you to play smoothly. Using VPN service to play the online games is the best way to reduce ping. Especially when all the Dota 2 servers are located outside of your country, you have to play on a server from another region.


Dota2

Here's a list of IP addresses of Dota2 servers around the globe.
Region                   Server Location             IP Address               
US West                Washington, USA          192.69.96.1
US East                 Sterling, USA                 208.78.164.1
Europe West          Luxembourg                  146.66.152.1
Europe East           Vienna, Austria              146.66.155.1
SE Asia                  Singapore                      103.28.54.1/103.10.124.1
South America       Brazil                               209.197.29.1/209.197.25.1
Russia                   Stockholm, Sweden       146.66.156.1

South Africa          Cape Town                     197.80.200.1/196.38.180.1

You won't get high ping if play with local region server. But what if all Dota 2 servers locate outside of your region. You might meet lags in game, which will affect the game. Well now you can check your ping to all of Dota 2 servers before selecting which Server to play. 
  1. Click on Start Menu.
  2. Type cmd and hit Enter. This should open a command prompt.
  3. Type in the command:ping <ip-address> and hit Enter. Eg: ping 192.69.96.1
  4. The average time will be the approximate ping.

If all servers give high ping, resort to a VPN. 
You choose choose some VPNs that provide free accounts. You can check ping on these trial version. If the speed not meet your needs, you don't need to pay for it. Here I would like to recommend FlyVPN, containing servers in different locations and offer free VPN accounts everyday. Below is a brief guide on how to setup VPN.
  1. Download FlyVPN client from https://www.flyvpn.com/download.
  2. After installed, run it, a window will pop up require to enter account. Use their free VPN username and password. 
  3. Click the server you want to use, then tap Connect button. The servers in these two accounts are different, so login with another trial account if you can't find the server you need.
  4. Once connected, you can check ping with the method mentioned above.
