Strife, the latest game to hit the country is finally on Open Beta.  The press launch was hosted by Strife’s official Philippine publisher, Playweb Games. Strife is a second generation F2P MOBA game and unlike other MOBA games, Strife focuses more on playing as a team.


So why does the game focuses on playing as a team? Well because the mechanics of the game makes it easier if you play as a team. There’s a gold sharing system and improved match-making system for level playing fields which are very important mechanics of the game and it helps you to collaborate more with your team rather than playing on your own. There are also some cool and unique feature in the game like pets and items crafting.


When I saw Strife at Imperium e-Sports Bar in Ortigas, I noticed Strife’s graphics is similar to Torchlight but this one has much better animations and graphics. The mechanics of the game makes this game different than other MOBA games because if you won’t help your team, you’ll have a hard time winning the game.


Strife is now on Open Beta and you could download the game client and register at http://www.strife.ph.

It is probably the best smartphone for its price.


The Redmi 1S sports a 1.6GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 400 Processor and at Antutu, it can reach a benchmark score above 21,000. That score is quite high for its specifications. Normally, most phones with that processor doesn’t reach that high score.

Just like the other Xiaomi Products, the Redmi 1S will only be available at Lazada.

We love the Gionee Elife S5.5 because of its very thin body but still, it packs a powerful performance thanks to its octa-core processor. But some people clamor for an Android 4.4 Kitkat update for the Gionee Elife S5.5 because during its launch, the Gionee Elife S5.5 was only running at Android 4.2. And now, your prayers has been answered because the Android 4.4 Kitkat update is now available for the Gionee Elife S5.5!
