[Hands-on] Taichi Panda 3: Dragon Hunter, a beautiful MMORPG that offers very little in the gameplay department

Taichi Panda 3: Dragon Hunter recently opened the floodgates for its public beta release. This essentially means any and everyone can now download the title on the Play Store in order to see its MMORPG gameplay in action. While there is no doubt that this is a beautiful game, the lack of any useful markers on the world map forces you to use the all too convenient auto-play button to progress. Essentially this is yet another mobile MMO that plays itself.

We leave the charger by the bedstand and resign ourselves to the daily cycle of charge, use, die, repeat.

But, with the new OUKITEL K8000, you can break out of that cycle. An 8,000mAh battery, power-sipping SoC, and efficient 5.5" HD AMOLED display combine to provide up to 5 days of battery life on a single charge.
