Acer Predator G6 Review : War Machine

Acer Predator G6 Review : War Machine

The desktop Acer calls Predator G6 (G6-710 for this review) is a monster. It's not the largest and most all-inclusive PC they offer - it's not even the most massive Predator. Instead, it's a great combination of elements.

Microsoft: Sorry, PC gamers, no Halo 5 for you

As one of the Xbox One's biggest exclusives, Halo 5: Guardians has been available since October. However, being a Microsoft-owned franchise, each subsequent release is met with the question of whether a PC port will eventually be made available. Halo 5 has been no exception, with franchise director Frank O'Connor stating back at release that there was a possibility the console game could come to the PC. It seems those plans, if there were any, have been squashed.

And nothing kills an online game faster than opponents that you simply can't defeat, because they're using cheats and exploits to aid them.
