Top 5 games to play on ViewQwest TV!

Following our post last week, many people have asked me for suggestions on what games to play on the VQTV and there are plenty of games that are really fun which are available on the google playstore. In today’s post let me share some of the games that I play when I get extremely bored at home. If you have nothing to do this coming long weekend, this could be an ideal activity to spend your time.

To have the best gaming experience, I would highly recommend using a USB controller (just make sure it is compatible with android). Once you done that, get ready for hours of addictive gaming!

1 Minion Rush

An extremely popular game back when Despicable Me 2 first came out! Get addicted all over again on the big screen!

2 Badland

With super adorable graphics and animation, Badland is one of my favorite game to keep myself entertained! Follow Clony through a magical forest filled with different machines that acts as an obstacle to stop you from your adventure to save his bunny friend.

Go on an adventure with little Clony and conquer the magic forest! This game won the Apple Inc’s Best Mobile Game award in 2014!

3 Zombie Gunland

A FPS(First-Person Shooting) game that requires crazy amount of patience. You will be onboard a heavily armed AC-130 aircraft to protect the humans from above ground until they get to safety, back in the bunk.

The game gets harder as the amount of zombie increases with each new wave. It can get very annoying because you can only aim 1 target at a time. So your job is to make sure the humans don’t get caught by the zombies, and also protect your bunk!

4 Tap Tap Dash

Another one of my favorite that can keep me up for hours.

Tap to jump or change director and make sure you don’t fall off the plank! Try and get through up to 250 levels with each level getting faster and harder to clear.

This game is super addictive, don’t say I never warn you! With just simple clicking, I get to lie down at the comfort of my home, on my sofa, on the floor, or wherever and play the game as long as the controller is able to be detected hahahaha.

5 Cube Escape Series

Probably one of the most mind boggling game I’ve ever encountered! If you are a fan of escape rooms, this game is for you.

Solve mysteries, and escape the cube. This requires a lot, a lot of thinking. So gather your friends and solve mysteries together on the big screen! Beware though, it can get reeeaaaally scary. Here’s one of the cases I did with my boyfriend. Took us 2 hours to crack, @@”

Cube Escape: Case 23

Bonus: Pocket MapleStory SEA!

How can I miss out on the latest hype!!!

There are so many other games available that I have yet tried out. Don’t forget to check them out at Google PlayStore and let me know your favourite and have an awesome long weekend! :D

Things you can do with the VQTV besides streaming

Did you know, besides streaming movies and dramas, the VQTV (ViewQwest TV) is also an awesome device which you can do a lot of cool stuff with? You can download any app off the PlayStore as long as it is designed for android tablet!

In today’s blog post, let me share with you  some of the cool stuff I always do with my VQTV!

1) Play the latest games!
No budget for a playstation or XBOX? The VQTV could be a good alternative! When I get really bored and have no mood for dramas or movies, I take a break and have a game or 2 or chess off my ViewQwest TV. This is probably one of the most mundane games ever, but it is really therapeutic when your mind gets too crowded with too many different storylines! (Hahaha)

Of course, that is not all! You can also download tons of great Games such as the Final Fantasy IV for Android and get addicted all over again!

2) Presentation
Games aside, the VQTV also supports professional work. Get yourself the Google Drive package, and get started with work right away on the big screen.

I love the Google Drive. It’s so convenient, it has Sheet, Slides, Docs & it’s Drive allows you to upload and share files conveniently with your friends or team mates. You can even work on your files LIVE with your friends!
There are chat functions, and LIVE edit functions that can help meetings become a lesser of a hassle. Now you can stay at the comfort of your own home and attend your meetings in front the big Screen, yayyyy!

You can even do a presentation through the Google Slides application on your VQTV! There are also many other applications similar to Google Drive for you to download too!

All your work is saved online, no fret about crashes or unsaved files. Awesome isn’t it?? Now who says you can’t be productive when you are in front of the TV!

3) Surf the net

Last but not least, you can also surf the net with the VQTV. The only difference is, you get a much bigger screen! The VQTV (4K Version) Comes with 3 USB ports, once you attach you mouse and a keyboard, you are all set!

Surf away on Facebook or log onto the net to search for information for your next getaway. You no longer need to share a screen with your friend while looking up on hotels, or itineraries. Planning made easy with the VQTV and everything gets clearer with a bigger screen!

So don’t forget to check out the google Play Store during your free time and download away! If you feel like getting the VQTV, go on to the ViewQwest E-store and purchase it now!

CouchPotato’s best gaming rigs!

The perfect get-up for low latency gaming!

With the launch of ViewQwest’s 10Gbps fiber broadband, there has been buzz around the actual capabilities of 10 Gbps. Many folks are definitely curious about testing out the speeds.

Of course, 10Gbps speed is not the only way to achieve low latency gaming. ViewQwest also offers other options like its 1Gbps and 2Gbps fiber broadband that are able to provide a smooth and lag-free gaming experience. Paired with a good gaming console, graphic lags will be a thing of the past during your gameplay.

Despite having an average ping of 4-6 in every game I played, I still experience the occasional freak crazy lag, because my desktop doesn’t have an epic graphic processor. My RAM also isn’t the best in the world, so I do get disconnected from a game at times. Worse, I end up a feeder because my screen would sometimes simply freeze at the most critical moment!

So YEAH, I know the pain of not having the hardware to support heavy duty gaming. So I went and dug up a few high performance rigs from AfterShock that are capable of supporting heavy duty gaming!

NOTEBOOK/LAPTOP (TITAN 2016 EDITION)

The AFTERSHOCK TITAN 2016 Edition is the ultimate desktop replacement gaming notebook. Equipped with a desktop z170 motherboard, a desktop processor and the new NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 980 graphics card for notebooks, the TITAN SERIES is AfterShock’s ultimate desktop replacement mobile performance system. It also comes with full suite of connectivitiy options, including unique features such as dual gigabit ethernet ports and more.

NOTEBOOK/LAPTOP (W-SERIES)

Right behind the TITAN 2016 Edition is the AFTERSHOCK W series, for those with a tighter budget. The AFTERSHOCK W delivers desktop class compute and gaming performance in a notebook form factor. Featuring the Z97 chipset normally found in desktops, the W series are true desktop replacement notebooks that support Desktop Processors and Nvidia Graphics in a mobile form with no compromise on customisation.

Good news is, AFTERSHOCK is an official partner of ViewQwest, you can drop a private message to ViewQwest’s FB page for special bundled deals!

Of course, having a good computer is not all. Without a blazing fast internet connection to go hand in hand with your epic rigs, there is no point in getting a high end desktop/laptop. I am thankful for my ViewQwest fiber broadband regardless though. I may not be able to game as much anymore, but I can still watch my dramas without any hindrance. Hahahahaha!

Till next time guys, :)
