Last Week on TekAdvisor (July 14th, 2019)
So, how did your week go? Here, on TekAdvisor, I had to work on a few back-end systems, but I still managed to start growing my list of recommended devices and I've also been working on listing alternatives to the Adobe Creative Suite; because as much as I'd like to work with Adobe products again (I miss you most of all, Illustrator...), I can't afford it, and I'm sadly not alone in this situation.
A few Indie Games launched this week, including Streets of Rogue after years in early access.

Freshly Updated Software
As I said, I've managed to add a few creative programs to the database but I also kept an eye on upcoming titles. On the AAA front, we have a couple Wolfenstein games coming up, Young Blood being the most likely to ve on your radar. Sadly, it's pretty common for Developer to start taking pre-orders before they've even determined what kind of rig you'll need to run them. As a result, I'm still waiting on several notable titles such as Cyberpunk 2077.
Thankfully, I do have the details I need for Killsquad which releases this week, also caught up on a few new titles and ports.
- Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Free!, (upcoming Triple-A Video Game for Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, Windows, Xbox One)
- Kdenlive, Free!, (Video Editing for Linux, Windows)
- Star Traders: Frontiers, ~C$10, (upcoming Enthusiast Game for Android, Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, iOS)
- Cultist Simulator, ~C$10, (Video Game for Android, Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, iOS)
- FireAlpaca, Free!, (Drawing and Illustration for Mac OS X, Windows)
- Killsquad, Unknown Price, (upcoming Enthusiast Game for Windows)
- Photopea, Unknown Price, (Photo Editing for Android, Chrome OS, Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, iOS)
Freshly Rated Hardware
I've noticed a raised interest in Gaming this week on the site, so I have a few additional gaming laptops to recommend. And despite the new generation of gaming consoles being imminent, the diskless version of the Xbox One S appeals to gamers less likely to drop off the platform quickly when the new generation hits, so I still added it to the database.
- Microsoft Xbox One S (All Digital), ~C$299, Console
- Asus Zenbook UX331UA 13" Laptop (UX331UA-DS71), ~C$900, Laptop
- Dell Inspiron 5477 24" All-in-One PC (Touch) (i5477-7974SLV-PCA), ~C$1300, Stationary Computer
- Dell G3 15" Gaming Laptop, ~C$950, Laptop
- Asus ROG STRIX Hero Edition 15" Gaming Laptop (GL503GE-US72), ~C$1499, Laptop
Have a Great Week!
