In our second Press Start
video, we get a few people to strap in for the roller coaster horror ride that is Outlast 2 –
the demo not that full game. It was supposed to be released by the end of this year but the release has since been pushed back to early 2017, or as gamers know it, that vague release date that covers our asses in the case of gamer outcry. This time, our gaming session was powered by the good people at ASUS and their Republic of Gamers notebook series machine, the GX752:
It's the Aventador of gaming laptops.
This beast comes with the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 series graphic cards, Windows 10 Pro, an i7 processor, and up to 64GB DDR4 RAM. Or in plain English, it's cray-cray. The machine is VR-ready and has a unique cooling system that can be seen here with a sexy shot of its back.
I'm talkin' sexy back, yeah!
The vents keep the palm rests on the laptop cool at all times and the 17-inch screen is bright and sharp. The only thing that may be an issue for some is that it's very heavy. Without the charger, it weighs 4.3kg so you aren't exactly going to be carrying this baby around a lot. If LAN parties were still a thing, this would be the best laptop to have though, so that's something.
Now, here it is. We ran Outlast 2
on maximum settings on a full HD display. Here are the jump-scare filled highlights from a good day's work in the office:
