PUBG Developer Bluehole Working on an MMORPG

If you haven't seen the trailer, Ascent:Infinite Realm is an upcoming title which you might want to check out. Powered by the game developer behind the community favourite of PUBG, Bluehole are now trying their hand in the MMORPG for the third time, but expect a lot more success this time round. Following their fantastic experience and ideas from PUBG, many are desperate to find out how the company approaches the genre. 

Before we proceed any further, see the trailer below if you haven't already:

As you may see, the cinematic sneak peek boasts ancient beasts, steampunk vehicular warfare packed in a fantasy RPG package decorated by modern graphics which look to impress. If we make our way to the game's official website, which is currently online here: https://www.airthegame.com/teaser , we can learn a handful more things. Aerial combat also seems to be an option, yet from the skies the game also ventures into deep pits filled with platforming enginuity and structure building. Customising aqnd constructing your own airship already looks like great fun. Apart from that, gamers can design their own unique quests to spice things up. 

If PvE gameplay doesn't float your boat, there's a considerable amount of PvP options available and we wouldn't expect anything else from Bluehole. Once you enter the "Realm vs Realm" mode, battles between players may rage out and definitely a few more activities which we are yet to learn about.  

Just like PUBG, Bluehole plan to sustain six months of closed beta versions throughout the first half of 2018. The game will be published by Kakao Games, the same publishers who worked on Bluehole's earlier MMORPG attempts. 

What do you think of AIR, as it may be shortened? Do you think it will be worth the hype or is it just full of hot air?

DRAM Prices To Rise By 10 - 20 Percent

Unfortunately for PC gamers, recent statistics have effectively predicted an increase in DRAM price especially as we head into 2018. Through these statistics, a calculated 10 to 20 percent increase is expected in price. All the information comes from DRAMeXchange and their research.  This year, the third quarter itself already say a 5 percent price increase individually, and the price increases are based on this. Again, retail cost will be proportional to capacity specifications, which might even lead beyond 20 percent. Yet, why is this happening? Well, the demand for DRAM is at an all-time high based on an increased need for more devices, especially phones which seem to need more RAM every year. For example, Apple buys around eighteen percent of the world's annual supply of NAND chips, a form of DRAM which they use in their smartphones.  Obviously, the same goes for PC DRAM modules too. Here's what a researcher, Avril Wu, from the source had to comment:  “Contracts with first-tier DRAM suppliers show that the prices of PC DRAM modules have now risen above US$30 and maintained around US$30.5 on average, amounting to a seven per cent hike from the third quarter. This price increase is mainly attributed to the influence of the booming mobile DRAM market, which is in turn fueled by the limited product supply and the releases of flagship smartphones during the traditional busy season of this year’s second half.” The price increase looks to be overcome by new production lines at fresh factories, to be opened by the likes of Samsung and SK Hynix as examples. Hopefully things will return to normal mid-2018, which is when we expect it to flatten out.  Silicon price increase has been reported by a Japanese Silicon wafer manufacturer responsible for a total of 60 percent of the world supply. The company plans to increase prices which will literally make everything to do with computing, more expensive. I don't think there's much we can do, and it isn't good news for consumers. Companies will either find new ways to cut down on price or products are going to be that much more expensive.  Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
