Crytek’s Game GFACE for iOS goes Social – Like never before

Crytek, the designers behind the Crysis sequence of games, are mentioned to be in the improve stages of building a new social games network called GFACE that will be capable of some pretty awesome things. In addition to the features you would expect from any social network, such as the ability to connect with friends and share your experiences, GFACE will offer an amazing game streaming service that allows you to team up with friends and play jointly from a number of different devices.

GFACE brings together the same capabilities you get from the likes of Facebook, Twitter, and Google+, and punches in a cloud-based game streaming service similar to that offered by OnLive. But it has some really wonderful features that make it stand out. Touch Arcade reports:

“It works completely in the browser and lets you do all the sorts of social things you would be expecting from your Facebook, Google+ or Twitter – add friends, post about your passions, discover new people, and plenty more. You can also meet up with people online and enjoy media-type things with each other, sort of like how you can watch a movie with friends in an Xbox Live party.”

But here is the best bit: GFACE makes it possible for you to team up with friends and play games with each other online. So what exactly is new? Well, the role you play within a game is based upon on the device you are using. For example, you could be playing a fps on your computer and you get the identical experience you would from any other first-person shooter. However, your friend could be enjoying the same game on an iPhone but in a secondary role, such as air assistance. While another friend, who has playing on an iPad, turns into the commander and gets a top-down view of the battlefield.

Both friends then become part of your group in a way that you do not generally find in first-person shooters. I do not know about you, but I am really excited about GFACE, despite its unusual name.

MSI GT783 – Gaming behemoth for 17-inch laptop

While a lot of companies are trying to develop laptops that are smaller and for the normal users, there aren’t many generic manufacturers that focus on gaming.
Most of them come out with ultrabooks or multimedia laptops but rarely those for gaming. MSI on the other hand, which manufactures a wide range of laptops from netbook to high-end rigs, had released a new gaming laptop called the MSI GT783.

First of all, it is a 17-inch monster. That usually explains a few things: the specs on a 17-inch laptop are more often than not a lot better as compared with those of a smaller size. In the case of the GT783, the same could be said as well. It offers a quad-core i7 processor and NVIDIA’s GTX 580M GPU which can easily be said, one of the best in the market.
It also has a 16GB RAM which is a lot more than what most people need. The GT783 has a programmable keyboard backlight system which is definitely something worth looking at.

The price of this monster starts at $2,300 which is anything but a normal price for a laptop. However, for that premium price, the performance of the GT783 is still something worth spending on.
