Sony with their easter eggs, even for game websites and H1Z1 is not an exception

H1Z1

There are more than dozens of Open World Survival Zombie games out in the open already and it is slowly coming to a point that the genre is becoming gradually overused. It might not be long until the genre of the undead will be “dead”. Thanks to  certain games like DayZ and Rust, the game is far from that point right now, but Sony’s not going to let these games hog all the action by themselves with their upcoming game of the same genre, H1Z1.

As to be expected from a giant corporation, H1Z1 will definitely be an open world zombie game worth checking out. It has all the factors of an effective survival game set in an open world that you can explore freely. Based from the screenshots, the world is pretty amazing (and “pretty” too in some way)

If you would check the official website of the game here, you’d see nothing but a dark and empty space with some chilly background music or sound effect. One might even think that the site did not load properly and will refresh it several times to see if it will work. After a couple of attempts, users will see a picture of a zombie from the game with the name of “Fred”. Not much information about this zombie as to whether it is a unique zombie in the game or just one of the usual zombie “breeds”.

But “Fred” isn’t the highlight of the easter eggs to be seen on the site. By looking at the left part of the picture, you will notice that there is a blinking light. This light happens to be a morse code that actually leads to a URL showcasing a panoramic screenshot from the game’s environment.

Just recently, another one was found through a reversed audio track of a creepy female voice spelling the url of another screenshot, which, in turn, had another screenshot url hidden in the image. Sony’s good with easter eggs, but this will definitely have gamers drool for more with the upcoming release of H1Z1.

Since the ubiquitous Start Button has disappeared from Windows 8 (but not from Windows 8.1), people sometimes have a little trouble on how to logout and shutdown on Windows 8.0. Who can blame users, anyway, when Windows has implemented the Start Button since Windows ’95, more than 15 years ago! This means that the users who are on Windowd 8.0 right now are the kids who started out on Windows 95 all those years ago.

It doesn’t help that all laptops and desktops you can buy in today’s market only have Windows 8.0. The tile design is something that Microsoft tried to market to combat all the other mobile OS giants. Needless to say, Windows has failed in pushing for adoption to their system.

So if you’re stuck on how to turn off your Windows 8.0, here’s how to do so:

Ctrl + Alt+Del

  1. Use the time-tested shortcut of Ctrl+Alt+Del and you’ll bring up a full screen shutdown menu with options for password change, lock, user switch, sign out and task manager.
  2. At the bottom right corner you can find the power symbol. It gives you the options to Shut Down or Restart

Tile view shutdown

  1. If you’re on your desktop, press the Windows key once to bring up the Tile Screen.
  2. Click on your user profile on the top right corner.
  3. Choose whether you want to lock the computer or sign out of your account.
  4. This will bring up the login screen for all users.

Alt + F4

  1. If your desktop is clear (no other open programs and such), press Alt + F4.
  2. This brings up a familiar-looking menu for power options.
  3. Click on the option you want or use the directional buttons to scroll up and down. You can sign out, sleep, logout or shutdown.

Windows + L

  1. Lock the screen with a shortcut using Windows + L.

Charm bar

  1. Press the Windows + C shortcut.

  2. Click on the gear or Settings Charm.

  3. You’ll see the power symbol as one of the options at the bottom. Click on it.

  4. Choose whether you want to sign out, shutdown or logout.

Closing the screen (for laptops only)

  1. Depending on how you’ve set up your power options in the Settings charm, you can either make your laptop sleep, hibernate or shut down when you close the screen.

  2. The default setting for closing the laptop screen is to Sleep.

If you’ve already updated to Windows 8.1, you’ll find that the Start button is back. You can now use special power options just like in the old Windows interface. You can also use the Windows + X shortcut to bring up the shutdown menu.

Hardcore and serious gamers are always looking for the best gaming accessories for laptop and desktop PCs. No matter what genre you are into, there’s a gaming accessory like a mouse or the Nostromo that is just right for you. It’s just a matter of knowing which are the right ones for you.

So if you’re looking for something to help you out with your Titanfall, Diablo 3 or Call of Duty game, here’s the Bitbag suggestions on the best gaming accessories for laptop and desktop PCs:

  • ASTRO Gaming A50 Wireless Headset

The reason why this is on our list is because it has Dolby Digital Surround 7.1. This means that you not only don’t bother anyone around you when you play (unless you’re a screamer or a swearer), you also get to hear the faintest sounds from your game. That’s right, you’ll hear Slenderman slithering behind you or the far-off screaming from the depths of Hell.

  • Microsoft Xbox controller for PC

If you ever wanted to play your PC games just like the Xbox version, you can do so with the Xbox controller for PC. It attaches to your PC or laptop via USB for charging or you can opt for wireless Bluetooth connectivity. This means that you can play controller-supported Steam games right on your PC, from a good distance away!

  • Razer Tartarus

Your laptop or desktop probably came with a keyboard already, so it doesn’t make sense to buy another keyboard. Get a Tartarus instead, which keeps your keyboard free while your hand pounds on the programmable and ergonomically-designed keys. It’s essentially an accessory that lets you hotkey all your commands in one hand. You never have to touch the keyboard for controls again. Pair this with the best gaming mouse and you’ll see how it improves your gameplay.

  • Razer DeathAdder

Finally, the mouse to end all gaming mice should be your must-have gaming accessory. This programmable mouse can enable macros and command chains for crafting and combos, and it can take a lot of usage. You can also adjust the mouse speed and dpi for delicate control or flat-out rage.

Elder Scrolls Online: Best 15 Easy Ways to Earn Money and Gain Experience Points Faster

Elder Scrolls Online is now playable and you can interact with other players online adventuring in Tamriel. For first timers, here are the suggestions to earn lots of money and gain experience points quicker.

Background

After the fall of the Reman Dynasty at the end of the First Era, the Dragonfires are left without an emperor to light them. Due to lack of leadership, three factions took the opportunity on expanding their territories in the Imperial province of Cyrodiil in expense of people residing the region. Your character starts as one of Molag Bal’s victims who had his or her soul stolen by the Daedric Prince.

Gaining Experience

Since the Elder Scrolls Online begins before any of the game series had happened, levelling up may differ according to new rules for massively multiplayer gameplay. Character level is required to use certain gears and consumables throughout the game and also determines level of enemies, loots and the ultimate charge.

  1. Primarily, killing enemies will give you experience points.
  2. Assisting others by killing enemies or healing them grants experience points. These factors bring essentiality to the element of having a party to level up.
  3. Defeat enemies or help defeat enemies with levels not too below than you will grant experience points.
  4. Quests can be time consuming and sometimes complex to complete but they always give rewards such as items and experience points.
  5. Follow the storyline or side quest line in order to maximise the rewards with experience points.
  6. Crafting tasks do not reward experience but rather grant inspiration to level up the profession skill lines. Profession skills are very helpful for gaining money.
  7. For players who travel a lot, discovering new locations will grant experience points.
  8. Unlocking chests also grant experience points.

Earning Money

Tamriel is a huge place filled with gold and you can find them almost everywhere in the game.

  1. Don’t ignore quests for quest givers will reward you with gold.
  2. PVE is the most suggested mode for getting lots of gold compared with PVP.
  3. Avoid buying gears from vendors using gold as prices can be very expensive.
  4. To save more money, obtain gears using levelling up strategy such as:
    • Crafting gear instead of purchasing
    • Complete quests for rewards
    • Trade directly with players instead of using the mail feature to avoid 10 per cent cut by the game
    • Having finesse in combat may cause opponents to drop more gears
    • Certain vendors in Cyrodiil exist that sell gears for Alliance Points
  5. If you harvest or loot crafting nodes, sell these materials to crafters rather than vendors for more profit.
  6. Before selling your crafting nodes, refine them to get other stuff such as gemstones, tempers, resins and tannins. They worth more in trade than unrefined crafting items.
  7. Profession skill line may be boring but experts on creating items especially consumables will get high profit for demands never goes down.

Once you’ve managed to sustain constant flow of income, you can now do other stuff to take your gaming experience to the next level.

With another long weekend coming up, you’re probably thinking of what you’re going to do, but wishing you could do it all in bed. Barring some extensive pillowcase acrobatics and blanketed exertions, grab that iPad off the shelf and get ready to wile away the time with some great, lesser-known games.

Don’t worry, we aren’t pushing some other version of Angry Birds, Candy Crush or PvZ at you; these are games that might be buried under all those casual platformers and tower defense. These games might make you think twice, think hard, cry or faint. Good thing you’re going to be in bed, then.

So here are the best iPad games to play over the holiday:

  • Monument Valley

Recently launched, this game is both a relaxing puzzle and though-provokingly wistful. You control a princess exploring a geometric, impossible land rife with puzzles. Made by ustwo, it’s a great game to start the holiday. Guide the princess on her journey through impossible staircases, shifting paths and a slow walk that leads to forgiveness.

  • Device 6

Instead of grabbing that spy novel you’ve always wanted to get into, here’s a game that puts you in the mystery. Device 6 is text-heavy, but most spying involves going through records and cross-referencing material. It’s mysterious and elegant, so be ready for some smooth sleuthing this holiday. You still get to play this in bed!

  • SpaceChem

If you’re one of those people who need to control something scientific all the time, this is the resource management game for you. Use the building blocks of matter to create unexpected results! Do this all from the comfort of your bed without the toxic spill or explosion.

  • Bastion

For something a bit more action-packed, but thought-provoking nonetheless, this game is the port of the action-RPG on Steam. You play the Kid, who battles through a post-apocalyptic world. The gameplay is astounding and the challenge will keep you in bed for a long, long time. Make sure to grab a copy of the OST as well; you’ll be humming some tunes soon enough.
