Cyzone has a long history in the PC market in Vietnam with the company being set up in 2004. They have 2 i-cafes with over 800 PCs currently, including the Dang Van Ngu branch and the brand new Vo Thi Sau branch which is being equipped with AMD’s latest Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5 CPUs that were launched to great success in 2017. Cyzone are actively involved in the gaming community and were recently crowned Vietnam champions at the Overwatch SEA Tournament and went on to represent their country at the group stage of the World Cup 2017 Overwatch tournament in Sydney, Australia.

AMD Ryzen CPUs were launched in 2017 and saw the return of AMD to the high performance CPU space. The revolutionary Zen architecture, developed over 4 years saw huge uplifts in performance of the AMD CPU core and large gains in efficiency. With the highly competitive AM4 platform offering stability and CPU upgradability until 2020, the Ryzen family of CPUs offer an ideal solution for I-cafes, system builders and those looking to build their own PCs. AMD’s Channel Sales Director for ASEAN, Mr Ryan Sim commented that “collaborating with partners is central to AMD and we are delighted to be working with Cyzone on this project to bring high performance computing to as many as possible”. He also expressed that there were ongoing plans to continue the resurgence of AMD and “improve the adoption of AMD Ryzen CPUs throughout the region”, with a range of partners in the PC industry.

The owner of Cyzone, Vu Thanh Cong, has a passion for IT hardware and has been a long time user of AMD processor, noting that “AMD always inspired us – the real IT component hardware enthusiasts”. Vu Thanh Cong considered many factors when choosing the platform to use in their brand new Vo Thi Sau branch with over 500 systems installed. However, after looking at the available options he concluded that “Ryzen is a very suitable choice meeting not only price/performance requirements, but also investment cost criteria”, with the advantage of platform stability giving the reassurance that “For the long term, there is upgrade possibilities at a competitive cost”.

Aside from the product performance and suitability for his I-café’s, Vu Thanh Cong was excited to see how the “Ryzen launch provided users reasonable choices and made the PC market excited again with renewed competition helping to accelerate performance/price/innovations. It brings a lot of benefits to the end user”.

AMD continues to support the gaming market in ASEAN and with Ryzen and Radeon products offering excellent solutions for many customers it expects that this growth will continue as more products are brought to market in 2018 and beyond.

Tokyo Game Show Special Coverage

Tokyo Game Show 2018

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

The Gadget Pilipinas Team was given access to a press briefing with Hidetaka Miyazaki, Director from From Software and a bit of hands-on gameplay. Here’s our take on the hands-on gameplay and the insights from the press interview. We also  figured a listicle is in order to rundown why this game will match the hype surrounding it.

Here’s our Top 5 reasons why “Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice” is to die for.

1) The game is Tenchu-inspired

sk8lqukaqalhq2mrzkqd 770x433 - Top 5 reasons "Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice" is to die forIf you’ve played any of the Tenchu games in previous game consoles, you know that the use of the grappling hook to set-up a one-slash-stealth kills from above is a hallmark of the series. Zipping to rooftops and treetops will be the go-to move in this game to get rid of sentries. And yes, those ever-so glorious decapitations and dismemberments with the stealth kill are present.

2) Casual or hardcore can play

sn1rmqcvrwomyuttaoyq 770x433 - Top 5 reasons "Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice" is to die forFrom Software is notorious for challenging games and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is no exception. However, Hidetaka Miyazaki, Director of From Software, revealed that he himself is a casual gamer and has made it clear that the game should be accessible to beginners and experienced players alike.

3) Upgradeable prosthetic arm

jjn6e6ivua5u142iukql 770x433 - Top 5 reasons "Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice" is to die forThat prosthetic arm that Sekiro has isn’t just for looks. It can launch a grappling hook and is upgradeable too. No details were revealed but its good to know that a skill-tree based system is in place. Think Horizon Zero Dawn or Spiderman on the way skill and gadgets are upgraded. Tech upgrades set in feudal Japan? What’s not to like?

4) Play the style that suits you

jo1pi5md3myj0pxynz9p 770x433 - Top 5 reasons "Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice" is to die forStealth like Tenchu or head-on like Dark Souls? It’s up to you. What’s clear is that you can’t use stealth for the whole campaign since the game wasn’t designed that way. Stealth can be used to thin enemy numbers and to preserve your health before confronting the big boss. The mix of stealth and hack and slash is always a good mix to change-up the pace and should suit any gameplay style.

5) Single-player only campaign can last 20 to 30 hours 

ocxemodvr6oa72argpyo 770x433 - Top 5 reasons "Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice" is to die forThat’s the length of the campaign as per Miyazaki. The game is focused-solely on the single-player experience. No more wayward players who can just jump-in and help or derail your campaign. From Software also focused on the story-telling. Given that no resources were spent in developing the multiplayer aspect, expect the campaign to take it up a notch.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will be released on March 22, 2019 on PC, Xbox One and the Playstation 4.
