The World Of Data

Whether big or small, data is undoubtedly a big part of our lives. And in this highly technologically-savvy world, data has become digital and proliferates the world both online and offline. With the growing number of data being shared on a daily basis, the issue on storage is a problem we always face especially if the storage capacity of your device can’t keep up with your data use. Gone were the days when devices have so little storage capacity, storage is much bigger now and you can always buy a secondary storage device if your device does not have enough storage space.

The use of flash drives and external hard drives have become the norm now. People usually purchase them for additional storage, so they can clear their device and add more files that will eventually be transferred to a secondary storage much later. Most tech users are always on the lookout for the best secondary storage at a reasonable price because it can free them of their constant worries of running out of storage space. Most external hard drives (EHDs) have bigger storage space now and they are generally reasonably priced too. They are fairly easy to use, so you won’t have any difficulty transferring your files from one device to the other.

The Seagate 8TB USB 3.0 desktop external hard drive is down to $129.99 on Amazon. This hard drive has been selling for around $150 since a drop in late September. Before that, it regularly sold for as much as $180. Today’s deal is the best price we’ve ever seen.

Seagate’s drive is meant to be as easy to use as possible. It has plug-and-play compatibility, so you can just immediately start using it, as well as drag-and-drop utility so it’s easy to get your data where you want it. It transfers at USB 3.0 speeds and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0. You’ll need to reformat it to get it to work with Mac. Users give it 4.6 stars based on 99 reviews.

Data saved on a secondary storage will likewise stay safer because these devices are rarely used to connect to the web, so there is a slimmer chance that it will be infected by an online bug or a virus or the more popular malwares these days. Unlike your computer or smart device that you use in your day-to-day to connect to the web. Regular use can wear out your device that can lead to premature breakdowns and the dreaded data loss that follows. Many of your data are irreplaceable so saving it on a backup device is the most logical thing to do if you don’t want to deal with costly data recoveries that do not have a 100% assurance you’ll be able to retrieve your lost files.

Sometimes, there are always some important data on the external hard drive. Thus, you always ask these questions: is it possible to recover data from a formatted external hard drive? If it is possible, you may still ask: how to recover data from external hard drive becomes a recovery.

MiniTool Power Data Recovery is such a piece of data recovery software which can be used to recover data from different kinds of

‘Radiant One’ Full New Episode “The Secret” Now Available

Last month we learned that Radiant One (Free), the trippy adventure game from developer Fntastic that released in August of last year, would be receiving new episodes every month, and a playable teaser for the newest episode titled The Secret went live inside the game. This week that episode has finally launched in full and is now available inside the Radiant One app. The Secret has you playing as a woman named Rachel who wakes up in a creepy old mansion and finds herself being followed around by a dark cloud of anxiety. Like, literally a dark cloud follows her and grows as her anxiety grows. And I don’t know if you’ve ever found yourself waking up trapped inside a creepy mansion, but that’s what I would consider a “high anxiety” situation. Your job will be to help Rachel escape the mansion by exploring and solving puzzles, and along the way “learn a great secret that will change her life forever.”

As we detailed in our previous story, new episodes are planned to release each month in Radiant One, and while originally you’d need to subscribe to a $2.99 a month subscription plan to access them, Fntastic has actually added some additional payment options into the game. Those who owned Radiant One before its switch to free to play will have access to the original episode The Awakening just as they always have, and as a bonus you’ll receive The Secret for free too. If you’re new to Radiant One, both episodes have playable teasers and you can buy the full episodes outright for $5.99 each, and there’s also a limited time special bundle offer that will get you both episodes for just $4.99. And of course you can still subscribe for $2.99 a month if you want. Whatever route you take Radiant One is well worth your attention and we enjoyed the original episode a lot in our review from last year. I’m excited to dig into The Secret and will be looking forward to next month’s episode as well.

SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Rad Rodgers: Radical Edition’ Review, ‘Resident Evil’ Games Coming to Switch, ‘Trials Rising’ and ‘Warhammer Quest’ Out Now, Today’s New Sales, and More

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for February 26th, 2019. Today we’ve got news of some nice titles set to bloom in May, a review of a new release, summaries of all of the other new releases, and details of the latest sales. It’s a busy Tuesday and we’ve got a lot of ground to cover, so let’s get to the action!

Capcom Unleashes Some Classic ‘Resident Evil’ on the Switch on May 21st

We’ve known for a little while about Capcom’s plans to release some of its older Resident Evil games on the Switch, but no one was quite sure of the exact release dates until now. And it turns out that all three of the planned games will be coming on the very same day. Resident Evil 1 Remake, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 will all be available digitally on May 21st. Resident Evil 1 Remake and Resident Evil 0 will also be available at retail in the Resident Evil Origins pack, but as usual, only one game will be on the cartridge, with the other provided via a download code. Unfortunately, Japan won’t be coming to the rescue this time as there are no physical versions of Resident Evil 4 or Resident Evil 1 Remake planned for the region.

‘Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package’ Arrives May 10th

The Resident Evil games aren’t the only adult-oriented re-releases hitting the Switch in May. Publisher Deep Silver announced that Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package would be coming to the Switch, but you know, announced Saints Row games and Nintendo platforms have a bit of a history. But on May 10th, dreams will become reality. A Saints Row game will actually come to a Nintendo platform as planned, and it’s a pretty good one, too. Open world mayhem with more inside jokes and pop culture references than you can shake a … well, that’s not a stick but I won’t say what it is, at await all those who visit the Saints gang a couple of months from now.

Rad Rodgers: Radical Edition ($29.99)

This could be a ‘me’ problem, but I’m not entirely sure what Rad Rodgers really wants to be. On the surface, it says it’s a throwback to the good ol’ days of DOS platformers like Commander Keen, the pre-3D Duke Nukem games, and Jazz Jackrabbit. And yes, I can sort of see that. There’s a certain level design sensibility to those games that is at least vaguely recognizable here. It also kind of seems to want to parody those games, though, with its fourth-wall breaking sense of humor and how heavily it leans into 80s/early 90s slang. Then again, it seems to have the over-the-top crassness of Duke Nukem 3D on its mind, too. And yet instead of going with a pixel-art style, it’s kind of just mid-range modern polygonal graphics.

I could pull out more details, but my point is that this game is just all over the place. It is absolutely to its detriment. Even in terms of its mechanics, Rad Rodgers throws in a lot of weird curve balls while failing to properly land its core action-platforming …

The system requirements needed to play the PC version of Dead or Alive 6 have been officially released in its Steam store page. All the requirements are quite manageable except for one, the recommended CPU. Dead or Alive 6 recommends an Intel Core i7 8700, something that it´s on a whole new different level compared to other triple-A games out there.

If you can’t wait for it though, you can try to pre-order it in PlayStation 4 or Xbox One just visit our comparator to check other retailers.

DOA 6′ Kasumi, New Costumes

What is Dead or Alive 6?

Dead or Alive 6 is a fighting game developed and produced by Koei Tecmo Games that features awesome graphics and multi-tiered stages. It is set to release on March 1, 2019, across all platforms – PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The DOA series started as an arcade game in 1996 and I clearly recall my younger self in my school uniform almost destroying the arcade machines in our local mall. Those were the days!

In its 6th installment, DOA is more visually enticing and exciting, the combat system is updated, and it promises a new level of fighting entertainment to players. The story will pick up where the DOA 5 left off. This time, it focuses on two separate narratives; the battle between ‘Nina and DOATEC’ vs M.I.S.T lead by Donovan, and the events in the 6th Dead or Alive Tournament.

If you are getting hyped just hearing about it, check the PC requirements below first and see if you’d need to free up some space.

Celebrate Pokemon’s 23rd Anniversary with a ‘Pokemon Go’ Event and a Pokemon Direct Switch Announcement Tomorrow on Pokemon Day

Tomorrow marks twenty-third anniversary of the Pokemon series, and you can be sure that Nintendo have a lot planned as part of their annual ‘Pokemon Day’ celebrations for one of their most beloved franchises. Literally as I was writing this news post, the official Twitter account actually announced that a new Pokemon Direct is set to take place at 6am PST on February 27th’s Pokemon Day, which will likely be the first we’ll hear about the new Nintendo Switch entry. As long as it’s not Ultra Pokemon Let’s Go II Turbo Edition, I’ll be satisfied with whatever they show during the Direct. However, there is even more for committed mobile gamers to celebrate within Pokemon GO (Free), as Niantic is launching a limited-time Pokemon Day event that is all about reliving those formative early steps of walking through the tall grass of Kanto’s Route 1.

For only 48 hours, unique Eevee and Pikachu wearing flower crowns will be obtainable, and all of their respective evolutions will also be able to obtain this neat decoration. This does mean that you’ll need to catch nine Eevees total to ensure you’ll be able to eventually evolve the entire collection – and that’s assuming that these creatures cannot also receive Shiny Pokemon alternate color variants. Speaking of shinies, the Rattata and Pidgey lines will now also finally be able to be captured in the wild. Shiny Pidgeot is pretty cool with its gold hue, but these are probably going to remain exclusively trophies for the most hardcore collectors.

Aside from these new limited versions, the Pokemon that you would normally find at the very first routes in Pokemon Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, FireRed, LeafGreen, Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee (people really like Generation 1, it seems!) will also be especially common in Pokemon GO during the Pokemon Day event. There isn’t a definite list just yet, but I’d hazard a guess that Rattata, Pidgey, Spearow, both Nidoran types, Mankey, and the early-stage Bug types are all likely to become far more frequent. There are also Kanto-themed raids, and an event-exclusive Adventure Box containing a number of incubators, Star Pieces and Incense for you to purchase with your well-earned coins. The most dedicated trainers will have a lot of walking ahead of them within the next couple of days, for sure.

Yet again, it’s another busy week for Pokemon – and I haven’t even had space to mention about Smeargle now becoming available through Pokemon GO’s cool new AR camera feature. It’s extremely cool to see a series that I have quite literally grown up alongside be as relevant today as it was back in 1996, and it’s clear that Nintendo view Pokemon as an integral part of its future plans through 2019 and beyond.

Nintendo DS RPG ‘Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer’ Is Coming to iOS and Android in Japan Soon

Over the last few years, loads of Nintendo DS and 3DS game franchises have seen mobile ports. My favourite ones of the lot are definitely the Ace Attorney and Dragon Quest ports but we’ve had some interesting things happen in the last twelve months with Professor Layton as well. The Shiren the Wanderer franchise has had an interesting history in Japan and the West. The first game released on the Super Famicom (SNES) in Japan in the mid 90s and saw a port to the Nintendo DS in 2006. This finally had an English release in 2008 thanks to SEGA on the Nintendo DS. That game is seeing a mobile release in Japan soon.

Spike Chunsoft is bringing Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer to iOS and Android for 1800 Yen soon. This port is based on the DS release which had added content and enhancements. If you’ve never played a Mystery Dungeon game before, these games usually have a procedurally generated dungeon with turn based movement and combat. Each action you take will have a reaction. Even moving in the correct or wrong place can turn the tide of a situation later on. If you die, you lose everything usually. Information about this mobile port barring the few screenshots and pricing is sparse but hopefully this one sees a release outside Japan since a localisation exists already for the DS release.

For a lot of people, the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games were the first taste of the Mystery Dungeon franchise. I quite like these games even though my favourite, Etrian Mystery Dungeon is super hard. The most recent one I played is actually from the Shiren the Wanderer subseries which ended up on the Vita a few years ago. Check out the official website of the Nintendo DS game in Japanese here. Have you played a Mystery Dungeon game before and are you looking forward to checking this out on iOS or Android?

Overwatch presents a new hero

It seems that Overwatch doesn´t give up on the struggle for maintaining a good position in the already-crowded competitive first-person shooter market. Adding more content to the game seems to be the chosen path and Activision Blizzard has announced that a new character will join the ranks of the international task force. It´s been not too long since Brigitte and Ashe made their apparition and now it´s the turn of Baptiste.

Baptiste is an offensive support character that will boost the performance of his teammates with his gadgets. He is a combat medic from Haiti that originally was a member of a military group called The Caribbean coalition, but his abilities caught the attention of Talon and he was recruited to bolster the ranks of the organization. After a while, he realized that the type of activities that Talon was immersed in were not his cup of tea, and he decided to leave them. That led to a manhunt where Baptiste had to deal with several Talon agents, so going back to the organization is not an option anymore, even if he changed his mind.

Baptiste

Nothing has been revealed from Baptiste’s skills but we expect that he will be hitting the public test realm in a few days, so if you want to take a look at his skill set before he comes to live server you should do it there. we expect him to have decent offensive capabilities while being able to support his allies with heals, being sort of a DPS-support hybrid able to fulfill both roles in any given situation, what would give you a lot of flexibility and tactical options.

Devotion removed from Steam, Red Candles Games issued a statement

Devotion removed from Steam

Released last February 19, Devotion got positive reviews and hundreds of thousands of viewers on Twitch. It’s safe to say that Devotion got the traction upon the release. But not long after that, Devotion faced criticisms from Chinese players due to a piece of art that according to them is mocking their president, Xi Jinping. Due to that, their game was the victim of a massive review-bombing campaign and now it only has 40% of positive reviews. The negative reviews are also affecting Detention (Devotion’s predecessor) that is now down to only 30% positive reviews.

Devotion’s Art material in question

This issue is nothing new since memes of Winnie the Pooh mocking Jinping has been around the Internet for a while. In fact, the movie Christopher Robin was banned in China last year because of a similar reason.

Devotion’s developer, Red Candle Games first addressed the issue and released a statement last February 23rd. They claimed that it was a placeholder that was taken down and replaced since the evening of February 21st and that they were taking full responsibility for the incident. They also emphasized that this is purely by accident and that it’s never their intention to harm any individual’s integrity.

Seemingly discontented with their previous explanation, Red Candle Games posted a follow-up statement the next day. They apologized to the players and said that the art material was released without the knowledge of everyone in the team. They only became aware of its existence when a player privately reported what’s written on the art material. They immediately took action and replaced the art material within an hour.

Their explanations went to the deaf ears of angry fans. The developer’s Weibo account has been shut down, Devotion’s Steam store page is now nowhere to be found, and players wouldn’t be able to buy it anymore. All of the Devotion’s related content have been removed from their YouTube channel as well.

Three hours after the removal, Red Candles released another statement. In their About the Store Page, they said that the removal was due to technical issues and it won’t be up on Steam until a complete QA check is done. No new developments have been released yet so let’s all wait for further announcements as to when Devotion is coming back.
