Blackwake Early Access Review, A Pirate Game Done Right

I’d like to review a game called Blackwake that has released as an early access title recently, it’s a pirate game that’s aiming to be as realistic as possible.

There is still a pretty long road ahead for the title to become the best version that it could be but if the developers keep trekking along as they are today then Blackwake could prove to become one of the best if not the best multiplayer pirate game out there. Continue reading

PC Gaming And Modding, Is It Necessary?

I would say that no, modding is not an essential part to a game’s success. However, having a dedicated modding community proves in several titles that it boosts player count and overall enjoyment.

Anytime I’ve played a game that I enjoy at a vanilla state and then added mods after playing for a while it adds another layer of value to the game and it heavily increases the replay value. Continue reading

If You Enter The Gungeon You Won’t Leave For A While

Recently I decided to pick up Enter The Gungeon, a dungeon crawler title that has been on my wish list for the longest time.

I’ve always enjoyed dungeon crawlers and rouge like games. “Rouge like” is a sub-genre for games that have procedurally generated levels as you go along. Although the different room you enter in the Gungeon aren’t necessarily procedurally generated, there are plenty for it to feel extremely random.

Enter The Gungeon reminds me a lot of Rouge Legacy but with guns and a top-down view. When you die, you don’t come back with that same character and items/weapons but there is indeed a way to beat the Gungeon! Continue reading

How Good Games Can Turn Into Great Games

There is one main factor that keeps games fresh and keeps people coming and that is the content. The more content you produce in a game, the better it gets.

For the most part I feel like most gamers want to have that sense of freshness, a new taste with the games that they pick up on a consistent basis.

I want to elaborate a bit on what I mean by this and also talk about some examples that I’ve noticed around the block, let’s get some discussion going! Continue reading

Do You Use Controller Or Mouse And Keyboard?

This post will be a short one to simply hear what you guys prefer and when you prefer a certain type of control scheme.

While I was playing through the For Honor open beta I was using the controller 100% of the way through, I also use the controller while playing one of my favorite games Brawlhalla.

But I’ll use mouse and keyboard for other titles. It really depends on what type of game it is that I’m playing! Continue reading

For Honor Open Beta First Impressions

The For Honor open beta started this weekend and I’ve been playing it for the past couple of days. So far it seems like a well balanced and fun game!

I could see a competitive side to this as well as a casual portion to it. I don’t really see myself getting competitive with For Honor but it could definitely exist! Continue reading

Should We Bet On Early Access?

early access on steam

Early access has been apart of Steam since 2013. Valve created this section of Steam to help developers get their game out to the public as soon as possible while still being able to get the money needed for further development.

Some early access titles have succeeded thoroughly and have moved on to an actual full release while some early access titles have been in early access for years and come out with paid DLC or even completely flopped in time.

So the question is – should we even bet on early access? Continue reading

Conan Exiles Early Access Starts January 31, 2017

There has been footage of this title for quite a while now but now there we are nearing the release of early access for Conan Exiles I figured it’d be a good time to discuss the game a bit and share my perspective on it!

From what I understand, this will be another multiplayer survival game where players can basically do whatever they want to other players with it’s own unique mechanics such as being able to summon giants and have NPCs protect your base while you’re not around. Continue reading
