PC games: Chaser

Recently hitting the shelves, Chaser is an impressive-looking FPS (first-person shooter). I was lucky enough to get my hands on some preview code, and to say it blew my socks off would be something of an understatement. From the minute Chaser was up and running I was drawn by the stunning visuals and exciting storyline.

Imagine you wake one morning and realise that you’re on board a spaceship where there’s plenty of unhappy armed psychos who want you dead. To complicate matters further, you’re not sure who you are or why you’re there. If you’re the type of person who keeps a cool head under extreme pressure then you’ll realise you need to get the hell out of there as quickly as possible, while attempting to find a few clues about your identity along the way.

John Chaser finds himself in this position one day in the year 2044. Except he doesn’t know that he’s John Chaser or what year it is. Fortunately for him, he’s a rough-and-tough, ass-kicking SOB who happens to be able to run pretty fast and fire a gun dead straight.

As if this wasn’t handy enough, he stumbles across some dead soldiers who have carelessly left their weapons strewn across the floor. Now he’s got a shooter, he can kill as many of the guards — who look like Star Wars stormtroopers, only red — as he needs to in order to escape the HMS Majestic, which just so happens to be exploding at any minute. Pretty exciting, huh?

You’ll visit locations such as Montack City, Siberia and the planet Mars. The plot twists and turns and you’ll encounter some powerful enemies and useful allies along the way. This game has everything an FPS needs and is reasonably easy for beginners to get to grips with as well. Be warned, though — Chaser gets much, much harder as it progresses.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
