What Makes A PC Game Become Successful?

There is a lot of controversy with PC gaming today in regards to what developers should do to keep a game going. But what really make a game tick with everyone? What keeps a game going? There are a few factors that I’d like to share in today’s post.

Boss Key Studios, the studio behind Lawbreakers and their newest game Radical Heights, is deciding to shut down to “reflect” on what they’ve created. Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed Lawbreakers and Radical Heights had its moments but I feel like if studios continue to simply copy the trends then they’ll tank as a company… Boss Key is a good example of that.

Lawbreakers was supposed to compete with games like Overwatch. Radical Heights was trying to compete with PUBG and Fortnite Battle Royale… Both failed.

This post isn’t going to be about Boss Key Studios, but their situation is a perfect example of what I want to talk about today.

Is Skyrim VR Worth Getting On PC?

I decided to pull the trigger and see if Skyrim VR is worth getting on the PC. Using the HTC Vive, Skyrim VR has surpassed most of my expectations though there are also a few things I think they could improve on within the game.

Skyrim VR is mostly what you imagine it is. The full game, playable in seated or room-scale VR mode, swinging your weapon to hit and actually shooting the bow similarly to how you would in real-life…

They did a pretty good job porting it into VR and whether or not it’s worth the full $60 comes down to pure opinion but for me, it was worth the price considering that I haven’t played Skyrim for a long while and mod support down the road is going to make it even more worth diving into.

PC Building Simulator Review, It’s Surprisingly Accurate

I’d like to review the new PC Building Simulator and share all of the ins and outs of what it is and what it is becoming. Being an early access title, there are still plenty of features that will be added for the final version.

What I appreciate most about PC Building Simulator is that they’ve partnered with companies like EVGA, GIGABYTE, Corsair and SilverStone.

You’re free to put together any build you see fit and then there’s also a career mode where you can build up a PC store to help anyone with computer problems or upgrades.

With that, let’s get to the review.

Best Free To Play PC Games In 2018

Just because a game is free to play (F2p) doesn’t mean that they’re low quality and not fun, usually it’s the other way around! Plenty of F2P games have come out in the past year alone so let’s take a look at some of the best free to play PC games that are available in 2018.

You’ll see some of the usual games that are shared as well as one or two that aren’t mentioned as much that deserve to be on a list like this. We’ve done a list similar to this before which will have some of the same titles mentioned, they’re simply still relevant.

What Is Kingdom Come: Deliverance? What Is It All About?

If you’ve been lurking around on Steam or random gaming sites then you’ve probably seen Kingdom Come: Deliverance being mentioned a lot recently. You’re probably wondering, what is Kingdom Come: Deliverance and what kind of a game is it? I’ve immersed myself into this world a ton lately so let’s talk about it!

After pouring in over 24 hours into this adventure I feel like I’ve got a good grasp on how the game plays and overall what kind of experience it is. It isn’t a game for everyone but it’s also one of the most unique gaming experiences I’ve had! Continue reading

What Is Delver? The Addicting Rouge-Like Dungeon Crawler

If you’re wondering what Delver is, what it’s about and if it’s even worth getting then look no further. After putting in a decent amount of hours into these dungeons I can say that it’s at least worth trying out if you like rouge-likes!

With graphics inspired by classic dungeon crawlers and a mix of Minecraft, Delver was made to try and be the dungeon crawler that satisfies the parts that other games just couldn’t get right.

Delver is all about delving deep into some dungeons, grabbing what is called the Yithidian orb and escaping all in one go. If you die, you will respawn as another delver with some of the gold from the last crawl. Continue reading

Subnautica VR Review, Exploring A Sea Planet In VR

Subnautica is a game where you explore and survive on a planet that is entirely made out of water. Let’s review Subnautica’s VR compatibility and go over how the experience differs over playing on a flat screen.

I use the HTC Vive for VR gaming and Subnautica is at the top of my list for my most enjoyable games in VR. Sure, there isn’t official controller support and it’s a little buggy but all in all, it makes Subnautica a lot more immersive and for me, turns it into a horror title.

With that, let’s get to the review.

PC Hardware Is Extremely Overpriced Right Now

overpriced graphics card meme

Many of you in the comments area are asking about alternative parts mainly when it comes to graphics cards or RAM. The thing is, no matter where you check, it’s all very overpriced.

I’ve looked into why hardware has sky rocketed in the past year and I have a bit of speculation as to when/if we’ll ever see hardware go back down to a decent enough price for us gamers. Continue reading

They Are Billions Review, The Tower Defense RTS With Zombies

They Are Billions Review

I figured it’s time to review the new and popular They Are Billions. Since it was on sale, I decided to pick it up and give it a go! RNG has never hurt so much.

This is the type of game where you get close to beating the level you’re on but then the game’s RNG decides that you’re going to fail again. Although it sucks to fail over and over, there’s something about the gameplay that keeps you coming back to try again and again. Continue reading

The things that people want and don’t want when it comes to a good game on PC. Is it simply consistent content? Or is multiplayer now a necessity? Continue reading
