I miss the good old days when we could just buy games and play it uninterrupted. We got the whole content at asking price! Nowadays we have to pay for an unfinished product from most developers. Only through purchasing “optional DLC” do we finally get the game in its finished state. This isn’t the golden age of gaming, but it’s certainly the age when game companies dig for gold! To give an example, I still remember playing Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Despite relatively enjoying the game, I feel as though I was cut short. As quite a large portion of…

Apex Legends has always been a team-based battle-royale. So imagine my surprise when I heard that Respawn Entertainment will be adding a Solo Mode, which has been a much-requested feature, on August 13th. Now while this mode is only for a limited time up until the 27th of August, players will be able to experience what it feels like being a true lone wolf. That being said, Apex Legends has never been a game to be played alone. And for good reason. The mechanics don’t compliment solo play. So how is Respawn Entertainment going to make Solo Mode work? When…

Political correctness is now present in videogames. It is 2019 and we should get offended by everything. If you’re white, heterosexual, and male then you’re an entitled bigot who needs to check his privilege. How dare your race takes the spotlight for what should be rightfully reserved for minorities? I never really understood how a person could think like this. The sheer hypocrisy of saying that color doesn’t matter than going on to attack someone for simply being black or white is astonishing. Case in point, nobody should really be attacked because of the color in itself. To not give…

Let’s be honest between the war with Sony and Microsoft, Xbox One players have always gotten the short end of the stick in this platform. Sure, only the faithful Xbox loyalist would boast about better spec and performance. But what’s the point of performance if you don’t have most of the exclusives? Your car’s got mileage but you ain’t got nowhere to run it. Now PlayStation and Xbox have always been butting heads. And it’s honestly torn the gaming community until recently when Sony finally gave in to cross-platform compatibility. But that war isn’t over yet. This isn’t a battle…

It was a difficult decision whether or not to use Fatal Blow on my opponent. We were both at low health, but it was still the first round. Should I risk not being able to use it the next round, or should I save it for a more desperate moment? These little decisions are what gives Mortal Kombat 11 a sense of rush and excitement. That moment when you’re just waiting for your opponent to make a mistake. From a glance, Mortal Kombat 11 can look like any other fighting game. But from my experience, the gameplay is a bit stiff…

Dante has many styles in his arsenal. But by far, his Royalguard fits in as one of the most dangerous. You can practically cheese bosses with it. Sure, it isn’t as versatile as newer creative ways to dodge attacks. Not as intuitive as giving you new melee attacks. Not as explosive as giving your guns that certain spice. But it is the most punishing. To put it bluntly, the Royalguard allows you to tank attacks and dish them back many times as powerful. They say the best offense is a good defense. Now Royalguard isn’t that difficult on paper. If you…
