100 Board Games in 2023
I've loved games my entire life - Trivial Pursuit, Scrabble, Monopoly, Clue ... the games my parents grew up with. So, naturally, they were tired of playing them by the time I was born.
10 Pros & Cons About Pokémon Scarlet
Why am I so late talking about this? Well, first of all, I co-own a Nintendo Switch Lite with my brother. He lives at home, and I live near my university. Because he works full-time 40 hours a week, and I work approximately 70 hours a week between classes and university jobs, it made more sense for our joint-custody Nintendo to live with him for a little bit. Now that classes are over for the semester, and I’m back home for however long, it’s time for me to finally figure out what all the buzz was about. Neat. So, as I play Pokemon Scarlet for the first time ever, allow me to dispense my first takes on the game. Five glaring gripes, and five soaring praises. Let’s crack in.
How to Be Tilt Proof
Anyone who plays online games has felt it at some point or another. If you are a League of Legends player, you already know what I’m talking about. You’re fifteen minutes into a game, and the enemy team is steamrolling you. Each lane is losing, you have no vision control of the map, and you are presently being ganked by four of the enemy players. The other? That one is your lane opponent. You can’t help it. Things aren’t going your way this game, and you begin to lose hope. Your focus wanes, and your performance and decision-making ability take a nosedive. You are “tilted”.
A Non-Fan’s Perception of Pokémon
I don’t like Pokémon, never have, it’s just never been of interest to me. And I know, that’s damn near scandalous, Pokémon is one of the most loved video game franchises out there.
What Kind of Gamer Are You? The Answer May Surprise You!
Put a group of gamers in the same room and have them all play the same game, and you may (or may not) be surprised to find that they're not all playing that game the same way. Some of them might be more focused on battling hordes of enemies. Others might be more into exploring every corner of the available map. Others still might be trying to figure out how to get some rare and elusive achievement.
Peaceful Gaming - Why so many choose serenity over stress when it comes to video games
Imagine this… After a long day at work, school, or even both, you've returned home, and now it's time to unwind and relax. You grab a warm drink and pick up your Switch to load up Zelda: BOTW as you get comfortable in a beanbag. This is very relatable and the spark for this article was the release of "Bear and Breakfast" on the 28th of July, 2022 and two days in it's all over Youtube and Instagram (keep in mind I don't follow many gaming channels). Currently, it's hard to find stats on downloads and users as the game has just been released but with 90% of 205 current reviews being positive/very positive on Steam, it can only mean good things. It got me thinking about the explosion of cute and cozy games that have been popping up all over the place.
The Dead by Daylight Experience
Over the years, Behaviour Interactive's worldwide success, Dead by Daylight, swept the gaming market with riveting gameplay, player-versus-player experience, and compelling survivors and killers. After seven years of new chapter updates, character and perk reworks, and innumerable balance patches, has the game finally run it's course?
Wii Remember, Do U?
On November 19, 2006, the world changed forever. On November 18, 2012, the world changed a whole lot less. Today, I’ll be talking about the history of what these two dates brought. The Wii, and its unfortunate cousin, the Wii U. Let’s-a-go!
How To Get Every Iconic Weapon In Cyberpunk 2077 Part 1: Blades
Cyberpunk 2077 is one of those games that has defined modern gaming - its immersive environments, realistic and lovable cast, and intense themes of death, personhood, and legacy firmly place it in the category of modern masterpiece. Despite its rocky start upon initial release, the game has a wealth of interesting mechanics, immersive story missions, and hidden secrets for players to explore and enjoy, making Night City feel like more than a simple background for a video game.
The Overwatch Problem: Translating Design
Opinions, right? Bastard of “Belief” and “Experience”, the opinion is a fraught little device that exists within most societies, helping to formulate everything that represents it: Laws, Infrastructure, Education and Progress. Without opinion, all we have left are facts and everyone knows, in this day and age of the <mis>[dis](un)informed, those have lost a lot of weight.
The Quarry Review
On June 10th Supermassive Games and 2K introduced us to a new narrative experience that gave the ability to decide who lives and who dies. The Quarry is a new stand alone game and is second to Until Dawn that was released in 2015. It follows the story of a group of counselors spending their last night together at Hackett's Quarry Summer Camp before going home, but as the night goes on one by one, each character goes missing and something is hunting them down...and its up to us to uncover the mystery.
The Evolution of a Female Gamer
When I was a kid, I was one of the very few girls who played video games. It wasn’t something that girls did back in the 1980s. Little girls were supposed to play with Barbies and baby dolls. They were supposed to play dress up and pretend to be wives and mothers, I guess in preparation for their adult lives. While I did play with my Barbies on occasion, usually with my cousins, I didn’t pretend Barbie was dating Ken or was always dressing up for parties. Barbie had real issues to deal with in her life. My Ken was often a murderer and Barbie had to solve the crime before the other Barbies were victims. Sometimes Barbie’s life was normal, but most of the time I preferred to play with Star Wars action figures, Legos, and Hot Wheels because there was more action to them. As the gaming industry began to develop, I started to shift to more video games. I was unknowingly laying the foundations of becoming a gamer.
