Razer Blade 15 Quartz 2020 Pink Gaming Laptop Review

Razer Quartz Gaming Peripherals | Quartz Gaming Set-up

Design your personal gaming set-up with Razer Quartz peripherals – Razer Blade, gaming mouse, keyboard, headset, and more.

This is not a sponsored post. I purchased this laptop direct from Razer and used my own hard earned money to pay for it. I have never owned anything by Razer but the company has long been the gold standard for gaming PCs, gaming laptops, and accessories.

Here is my unboxing video:

And a bit of my “gaming history” on previous laptops, sprinkled in with some pictures of the new 2020 Razer Quartz Blade 15 Inch Laptop. Followed by some Specs, Benchmarks, and recommended accessories.

The pictures and videos sometimes don’t reflect how pink this computer really is. My own pictures, Razer official pictures, and other people’s pictures really show this laptop as more of a rose gold with a hint of pink, but in person, it’s EXTREMELY pink. Not rose gold at all. So keep that in mind :). None of my pictures or videos have any filters or editing. I tried different lighting and different camera angles to try to get a good idea of how pink it was, but no matter what I did, the laptop is much pinker in person than in the pictures lol. Which is a good thing i think :). read more

The Best Upcoming & New Release 2018 PC Games for Girls

Back in the 90s I barely played PC Games, because so few existed that appealed to my tastes. There were exceptions of course, Torment, Fallout 1 and 2, Baulder’s Gate, Icewind Dale, King’s Quest (and other Sierra titles), Ever 17 (and anything else by Hirameki International), Petz, Black and White, Creatures, Graduation 95, and a handful of other gems that weren’t available on my consoles.

But largely, console gaming was the highlight of my childhood. That’s where all the anime games or JRPGs or story rich games were, especially in the 16 and 32 bit eras, which still remain my favorite gaming period of all time. Genesis, Sega CD, SNES, Saturn, PS1, PS2, and Dreamcast, the majority of my favorite games, still to this day, lived on one of those great consoles.

But nowadays, I barely play console games anymore. Occasionally there may be an exclusive that catches my eye, such as Persona 5 on PS4, or Tokyo Mirage Sessions on the Wii U. I even bought a Wii U just for that game in fact.

But now, so many games are cross platform, and so many people like me, who grew up in the 16 and 32 bit eras are making their own indie games now such as To the Moon, Always Sometimes Monsters, Rakuten, Undertale, etc. This completely changes the gaming landscape. Now PC is by and far my preferred gaming “platform” of choice.

And where once, JRPGs reigned on Consoles, they now thrive on the PC or even on mobile devices, and in the past 5 years we’ve seen a huge explosion of visual novels and Otome games as well on both PC and mobile – and barely any of those have been released (at least in English) on consoles.

Where once the PC had almost no games that appealed to my tastes, now suddenly, more and more each year, I find the PC to offer so many games I want to play that I don’t have the time, nor money, to possibly play them all! I have over 700 steam games already (and a handful on Origin, and about 50 more on GOG, and then of course my old CDs from the 90s which have yet to get released digitally.) And that’s not taking into account the PC’s ability to emulate the console games I own (probably around 300+ games there too). And emulation is perfectly legal as long as you own the original games, which I still do.

This puts the number of games I can play on my PC right now today, without buying a single thing, at well over 1,000 games! — How many of those games I’ve actually played, is probably around 25%, and how many I’ve beaten to completion / all endings etc, is probably like 5%. lol. But the point is, there has never been a better time to play girl games on your PC. If you’re a girl, there’s plenty of games that you should check out on PC. This wasn’t the case 20 years ago; my how the landscape has changed!

Here is a list of games due out in 2018 that are on my radar! I’ve selected these games for one of the following reasons: Decisions Matter, Branching Plot, Multiple Endings, Cute/Kawaii Graphics, Excellent Story, Innovating (or at least really fun) Gameplay, and Customization. If you look for the same qualities in your games, check out the list below. Warning, it’s long.

This list is not in any order – largely it’s sorted by release date, because that’s how I was browsing the games while researching this post.

Sea Dogs

Our first recommendation reminds me of Horizons New Dawn, one of my all time favorite super nintendo games.

Sorcery Jokers

This visual Novel Has Some Beautiful Graphics

Til the Dawn, Waiting

This looks sad, and also features animals, a powerful combination to tug at any heart strings

Franky the Bumwalker

Super cute and colorful adventure game that probably doesn’t take itself too seriously.

Dragon Cliff

This indie RPG features an extesnive crafting system and city building aspects as well as cute retro graphics.

Stunt Corgi VR

If you’re lucky enough to have a VR headset you might like this title that lets you create obstacle courses and watch a cute corgi try to navigate the courses you create.

Project Bits

If you like rhythm games, you might like this one with cute anime artwork. Plus it’s free to play.

The Mind Hero

An anime visual novel where you help 8 different characters overcome their trauma. It aims to teach psychology inside a video game. It’s also free and features a comic book style.

Katyusha

This looks to be a very emotionally engaging and beautiful pixel retro style RPG. The developers have said that the game uses real-life world war 2 letters that were written by soldiers to their families.

Battletech

The ability to customize everything about your mechs and the appeal of mecha genres from decades of anime such as macross, robotech, go lion, voltron, evangelion, gundamn, etc, make this appeal to me, despite the more dark realistic graphics. The gameplay looks fantastic. And who doesn’t love giant robots?

In The Valley of Gods

Explore pyramids in this narrative adventure.

Villages

This game aims to balance the skills and economy of its players so that they are forced to work together. Sounds promising. Let’s see how that works once the game releases.

Grow Bot

This just looks so utterly adorable!

Boyfriend Dungeon

With a name like Boyfriend Dungeon, how could this not make our list? It’s an otome dating sim and hack n slash RPG adventure, where the boys are weapons.

The Iron Oath

I am beyond excited for this game! True, it doesn’t have the visual aesthetic that I like, but nearly everything about the gameplay appeals to me greatly! Decisions matter, the guild management sounds fun, every character has a back story. Characters die / perma death, you recruit new characters, I’m ready to play this awesome looking tactical RPG.

Living the Deal

Business Management and Life Simulation Game. This one is high on my wishlist (despite how hideously ugly the characters look lol).

Wolf Gang

Play as cute wolves chasing cute sheep in a game which promises unlockable content and character customization.

Freedom Planet 2

Furrie fans and fans of old school Sonic games still love the original Freedom Planet, and soon the wait is over for the much anticipated sequel.

The Forgettable Dungeon

Co-op Action RPG that you can play with up to 15 friends.

Countdown to Black Friday with New Deals Every Day on Amazon

Amazon just launched their Black Friday Pre-sale event. You can check back every day for new items at http://amazon.com/Black-Friday/…

Already they are offering up some pretty sweet deals for geeks and gamers. I recommend bookmarking and checking back as often as possible. I’m hoping for a PS4 Bundle or Console to go on sale. I have enough already to purchase, but since it is that time of year, saving some money never hurts, and I’ve waited this long already to get myself the newest consoles, so might as well hang in there a few more weeks and see what happens!

Last year, amazon had amazing black friday and cyber monday exclusive gaming bundles for all three major game systems including Xbone, PS4, and WiiU. This year the savings should be even greater since the technology continues to age and the market gets even more competitive with new consoles such as the Xbox Scorpio, PS4 Pro, and (soon to be released) Nintendo Switch, which means the standard Xbox One, PS4 Slim, and possibly Wii U will need to discount their inventory to see a strong finish this year.

PC Gamers are not to be forgotten, RIGHT NOW amazon has awesome Black Friday deals on headsets, lightup keyboards, game controllers, gaming mice, and more. There are some great deals such as headsets for 65% off, hot new release games for both console and pc at up to 75% off and many more.

Amazon even has a page set up specifically for gaming deals here: http://amzn.to/2evLcYi

or a general one for Electronics here: http://amzn.to/2evMYZH

I’m also needing a new gaming laptop, and Amazon has a page for PC and Laptop deals here: http://amzn.to/2elLmON

Video Games not your thing? Maybe you want some boardgames, legos, cute plushies, dolls, or figures? If so amazon also has a page for you here: http://amzn.to/2fp9ssJ

And the sales will continue into cyber monday as well and Cyber Monday has it’s own page for deals which will be located at http://amzn.to/2fk9JB3 once it goes live later this month.

It’s beginning to look a lot like … Black Friday? I know stores get more aggressive each year with their Black Friday sales and offerings, but this seems a little premature? It’s only the 1st of the month but already Dell has some huge sales going on!

There’s laptops and desktops on sale for the next 24 hours only.

My pick for all of you gamers is the Inspiron 15 7000 Touch which comes with a 6th Generation Intel® Core™ i5 Processor, 8GB Memory, and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960M with 4GB GDDR5 for just $799.99 which is $200 off Dell’s regular price. It also has thermal cooling and benchmarks pretty well on the latest games on high and ultra graphic settings. All this power in just a tiny 6 pound package.

Disgaea comes to PC for the First Time with Disgaea PC – an HD Remake of the first game, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness

Disgaea is a cult classic Strategy RPG by Nipponichi and now, for the first time ever, PC Master Race players (those who refuse to play on a console) are about to experience this epic game series.

Technobuffalo recently reported that this is the “definitive” edition of the first Disgaea game, “Hour of Darkness” because of not only the new HD graphics, but also the bonus content that was previously only available in the PSP version “Afternoon of Darkness”

Steam already has a store page set up; and an expected release date in February 2016.

According to the Steam store page, the game will include Japanese and English audio, as well as Japanese, English, Chinese, or Korean text, making it a world-wide edition.

Also in the announcements on the steam page, users will be able to choose from the old “pixelated” graphics, or the new HD graphics, OR mix and match between the two – such as choosing the old character sprites, but using the new HD environments. The interface has also been enhanced for PC play.

For those who have never played Disgaea, or even long-time fans who want to have a copy in their steam library, this is very exciting news.

Here is some info taken from the Steam Store Page to help explain what this game is all about to new players, and to show long-time fans the new features in the PC port.

About This Game

Download the Darkness, Level Up Evil!

Two years after the death of his father, Overlord Krichevskoy, the demon prince Laharl awakens to discover that the Netherworld is in turmoil. With unlikely allies, his devious vassal Etna and the angel trainee Flonne, he must battle his way to supremacy to retake the throne and become the next Overlord. Experience the SRPG classic, now on PC!

Otome Gaming Bundle includes Lucky Rabbit Reflex for $2.50

Lucky Rabbit Reflex Otome Game Part of Groupees Mini Bundle 4

Lucky Rabbit Reflex is an excellent Otome Game and right now, while supplies last, it can be yours for $2.50 – what’s more it includes several other “story rich” styled games including Evoland, Joe’s Diner, Nightclub Emporium, and some game called Slave Trade (which sounds rather offensive and tacky to me, but hey, it’s free – the other games are worth $2.50 — Lucky Rabbit Reflex alone is worth that!

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Lucky Rabbit Reflex is very similar to the Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side gaming series, and amazingly, it is an indie game made by fans who love the Otome Genre.

This game typically retails for $19.99 which is why I snatched up this awesome Bundle!

Similar to Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side, you dress your character for each of her dates, to impress the guys, by guessing their tastes in style.

It has almost 20 endings for lots of replay value and over 150 clothing items to collect which boost the guys’ affection during the dates.

Also like Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side, you must keep your stats up and reach certain parameters to get each guy.

You have to juggle study, dating, and part time jobs and also manage your health and stress levels.

If you like Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side do not miss out on this limited edition bundle for your chance to pick up Lucky Rabbit Reflex and many other great games for just $2.50

Only 1,097 bundles remaining at time of this post. Pick it up over on Groupees website at https://groupees.com/mini4

Sony Vaio Fit 14 Inch Pink Laptop Preview

pinkvaiofit

The Sony Vaio 14 E will soon become my next new laptop. The features that appeal to me are the pink color, the light weight, small, portable size, and the full customization options, which make it a viable gaming rig, all at an affordable price point. Starting at just $579 for their base model, and only $1239 for a fully loaded system.

Geeky Sweetie’s “Sweet Spot”: We take into account price and performance to present our recommended specs.

Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce™ GT 740M w/ Optimus (1GB) + Intel® HD Graphics 4400 hybrid graphics [ $50.00 ]

 Processor: 4th gen Intel® Core™ i5-4200U (1.60GHz / 2.60GHz with Turbo Boost) [ $100.00 ]

Ram: 6GB (4GB x1 + 2GB x1) DDR3L-1600MHz [ $30.00 ]

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Final Price with our “Sweet Spot” configuration is just a mere $759 bucks. That is a real bargain for the latest nvidia chipset inside a small, incredibly cute, ultra light notebook. There is no extra cost for the pink color, it is available as a standard color option. It also comes in silver or black, but where’s the fun in that? 🙂

Bottom Line: If you can swing $1200 for the fully loaded options, this thing is a beast. It can be upgraded to an i7 3.3ghz processor, 16 gb of ram, the latest nvidia graphics card and a 750 gb solid state drive.

Geeky Factor: 

Sweetie Factor: 

The laptop itself has some nifty features and bells and whistles such as an “always on” technology which eliminates the need to ever turn off your machine.

If you’re looking for something capable of playing games on medium or low settings, and something very stylish, eyecatching, and slim and lightweight, this laptop can easily do that even on less than “loaded” configurations. Our “Sweet Spot” Configurations should be capable of playing most games on medium settings.

I currently own an alienware and am looking for something with less power with the trade off being something much lighter and portable. My alienware is over 13 lbs, while the Sony Vaio 14 is just under 4lbs. That’s a big difference! And since I play mostly older, 2d, indie style games, I don’t need all the power of an alienware. Plus the Vaio is just so cute! Look at it! 🙂

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I don’t currently own a vaio. Have never owned a sony laptop before, and therefore, I can not comment on their tech support, actual performance, fan noise, heat levels, ability to view monitor from different angles, in different lighting, etc.

If I do decide to purchase this puppy, I will be back to write a full review. Until then, hope you have enjoyed the preview! In the meantime, You can have a look at small gaming laptop from razor blade brand that offers amazing features in gaming that you cannot resist to play.
