If you've played the latest version of the Assassin's Creed anthology, you will have probably enjoyed exploring familiar towns and cities throughout England as our favourite drengr, Eivor. But have you wondered about the names of these places and how much influence the Vikings, Romans and Anglo-Saxons actually had through invading and settling in Britannia?
- Created with: Humble Bundle
One Month Later, And Here’s Why I’m Even More Obsessed with Humble Bundle’s Choice Model!
Through that process, I found a community in gaming that helped me give back to charities important to me. That company is Humble Bundle! In case you aren't yet familiar with Humble Bundle, they are a company that sells video games, ebooks, software, and other digital content with a significant focus on supporting various charities in the process. Their goal is to make gaming affordable to everyone and support a good cause while doing so! Both of those things are very important to me. Last month, I got to try out Humble Bundle's "Pay What You Want" feature.
ADOM (Ancient Domains of Mystery): How 15,000 Lines of Code Changed RPGs
Life hasn't been the most exciting lately. I love to travel, so naturally, the shutdown that brought 2020 to a halt has forced me to take up, well, less-preferred means of adventuring. One such method is to explore the open worlds of video games that were ideated before I was born.
Yes, at 44, I Play Minecraft
Almost a decade ago, my daughters roped me into playing Minecraft with them on the Xbox 360. Because I'm one of those parents who is easily talked into playing games and what-not, it didn't take much convincing.
How Nintendo Saved My Life
Growing up as a child, I was always fascinated with Nintendo, specifically the Legend of Zelda franchise. I've always loved the storyline behind video game plots. In my childlike mind, I used to compare it to a high-quality movie that you could control. I started gaming out young, sitting beside my mother as she would play different games on our good ole trustworthy GameCube such as Harvest Moon, Final Fantasy, and The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. I loved watching my mom play her video games in the late quiet of the night.
'Loop Hero' is the Perfect Game for a Post-Covid World
While the title of this sophomore release from indie studio Four Quarters is appropriate, albeit bromide, I find it unfortunate that "Oblivion" is already a shopworn gaming trademark, because that is the word that keeps coming to mind as I loop my way closer and closer to 100 hours of game time.
Animal Crossing & Depression
Ever since I was a child, I have been obsessed with video games. It didn’t matter what the genre was; I played a little bit of everything. RPGs, Racing games, horror survival, 2D platforms, you name it, I was dabbling with it at one point or another. The first video game console my siblings and I were introduced to was the NES or Nintendo Entertainment System released on July 15th, 1983. My eldest brother actually had an Atari 2600 before coming into money to buy his first gaming system, which was the NES. By the time he purchased a Turbo Graffix 16, he had donated the previous console to us in the middle 90s.
League of Legends: Wild Rift is the way the game was always meant to be played
Last week, just a day or two after League of Legends: Wild Rift, launched on iOS, I made this tweet: And you know what? I stand by it. After spending a week with Wild Rift, I can confidently say it's the most fun I've had on a mobile game in a long time. Not only that, but Wild Rift plays better on mobile, and is in fact superior to the original game.

Dungeons and Dragons; an experience in itself.
I started to learn how to play Dungeons and Dragons with a few online friends at the beginning of covid-19 lockdown of 2019 summer. I began my journey with a Dwarf -Druid named Rosaline Warhammer, who had a large red beard alongside her bushy and curly red hair. I almost died 2 times within this game, and I ended with a permanent injury to my knee which decrease my walking speed by five foot, and as a dwarf only has 25ft of walking speed - this wasn't very good at all.
DayZ Console Modding Part 5
In this part of the series I shall cover one of the more straightforward changes that can be made to your DayZ xmls to improve quality of life on your server. Making vehicles and guns spawn with all their parts ready to go. For the most part the only file we'll be making changes to is cfgspawnabletypes.xml but first we should despawn all the cars spawned on the map by default. To do this open Events.xml and scroll down to the events that spawn vehicles, you should see four for cars and one for trucks. On these events set <active> to 0, then save, upload and do a server restart.
"I'm Not an E-Girl" And Other Lies I've Told While Playing League of Legends
#1 - "My name is Mike." Guys, I don't think you understand: I am totally blowing my cover, here. When I first started playing League of Legends, I chose the name "sleepymk." I would play duo games with my boyfriend which would often go (relatively) seamlessly. (I'm a Nami OTP and I will heal you for days, let me tell you.)
5 Non-Vampire Movies You Should Watch Before Running a Vampire Game
The World of Darkness is a setting filled with deep shadows, where players are asked to gaze into the abyss and grapple with the questions about the line between the human and the monstrous. While there are numerous spheres of this setting, the flagship has always been Vampire, since it was the game that really launched the World of Darkness into the public eye.
Since 2011 Joe Redifer and Dave White have been reliving the glory days of gaming, sharing their extensive classic collections with the world through their YouTube channel Game Sack. From the NES to modern day consoles there is nothing the duo has not covered though they are more famous I would say for the older stuff as well as their decidedly 90's inspired humor. It at times can be pretty cringe inducing, or dare I say crass, but it hits more than it misses.
