Most Wished For Games: October 2015

Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi and Ubinota might seem like unlikely leaders in October’s Most Wished For Games on Razer Cortex: Deals, but you might have noticed the trend- they were part of two huge giveaways that were extremely well received by our fans. We teamed up with Bundle Stars and IndieGala to give out more than 200,000 Steam keys to our Razer users. The keys were all snapped up in under 60 hours, catapulting these 2 games up to the top of the ranking. For the lucky users who acted fast, we hope you are enjoying the keys. For the others, remember to hit us up on Facebook and Twitter for updates on our next giveaway.

“Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi and Ubinota leap to the top two spots in the leader boards for October after a huge fan turnout for in our latest Steam key giveaways.”

Fallout 4 held on to the 3rd spot in anticipation of its launch, we reckon that it would have taken the first spot were it not for the widely popular Steam key giveaways. While November looks to have a pretty robust list of new games, we think it’s safe to say that Fallout 4 will still claim the lion’s share of the limelight.

“Fallout 4 remains the most anticipated game for the Quarter.”

Minecraft: Story Mode makes its debut at the 5th spot following its highly raved about release, while Mad Max drops out of the Top 10 after a single month. Grand Theft Auto V, Rocket League, Counter-Strike Global Offensive and Ark: Survival Evolved remain in the Top 10.

Most Wished For Games: August 2015

August brings us a surprise leader in the list of August’s most wished for games on Razer Cortex: Deals

The game most users added to their Razer Cortex: Deals wishlists in August was Block N Load. We partnered up with Block N Load to give away 10,000 steam keys for free exclusively to Razer users. Needless to say those keys vanished in a matter of hours. With this exclusive offer 10,000 lucky campers were able to save $9.99 on a freebie!

New to the top 10 this month is one of 2015’s highly anticipated titles. Fallout 4 barges in at 4th place as it’s November 10 release date inches closer.

Five months after it’s PC release, Grand Theft Auto V is still in front running positions with a respectable 2nd place and is starting to get its first discounts on several stores. This is the best time to have GTA V on your wishlist to get instant news on when its price drops.

August is the first month where Garry’s Mod isn’t among the most wished games on Cortex: Deals.

Speaking of drops, this month, gone from the top 10 are H1Z1, Just Cause 3, and Garry’s Mod. August is the first month where Garry’s Mod isn’t among the most wished games on Cortex: Deals.

In fifth Counter-Strike: Global Offensive hits its lowest position since we started tracking the games users have been adding onto their wishlists. We’ve seen CSGO hit the top of the charts on several occasions but this time around the old are giving way for the new.

What’s the Razer software user’s typical gaming PC?

Today we look at the guts of the Razer software users’s typical gaming PC. The information we based on is compiled from Razer Cortex’s Diagnose feature. When Diagnose is engaged, Razer Cortex performs an in-depth and thorough report of all the components and settings applied to a system.

Through these anonymous reports we are able to get an idea of what components go into a Razer gamer’s PC.

What we see here are the most frequent specs of the PCs that were diagnosed through Razer Cortex. Overall they make up a mid tier gaming rig, which makes sense since Razer Cortex: Boost provides a great benefit to owners of these types of setups.

When it comes to GPU, a larger portion of Razer users go for AMD’s Radeon R9 200 Series that came out last year. Processing wise, the most common CPU, an Intel Quad Core i5 clocking in at 2.5 GHz is not top spec but still holds its own with most games.

With 4Gb of RAM being the most limiting component found here this system will struggle to run some of the most recent titles. On a hard drive disk of 500Gb you’ll be limited to a handfull of installed games before you start running out of room for more.

To put this setup into perspective, with these components you’d be able to fit the minimum requirements for a game like Grand Theft Auto V. To run games like Counter Strike: Global Offensive and League of Legends (the two most played games by Razer software users) you’re well taken care of with a similar setup.

For a more hardware demanding title like The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt this configuration is already below its minimum requirements falling short in the memory and CPU department.

When it comes to the recently released Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, although the RAM meets the minimum requirements, the processing power of this Intel chip, however, fails to reach that standard.
