Fortnite Season 5 Kitsune

Fortnite Season 5 is HERE: Map Changes, Rifts, Desert Biome and More!

The build-up to Season 5 was incredibly intense. With the launch of the rocket and the giant dimensional rift that opened in the sky, Fortnite fans were left wondering: what exactly does Epic Games have up their sleeve? In the last couple weeks we’ve had to patiently wait as the rift grew wider and various well-known POIs around the map changed, including the disappearance of the Durr Burger. The burger, by the way, landed in the middle of a California desert in the real world, like the literal Real World.  This morning Season 5 finally released, and with it a […]
Realm Royale First Look

Realm Royale First Look (Review and Beginner Tips!)

Battle Royale like you’ve never seen it before: mystical setting, classes, weapon crafting and more. Realm Royale is only in Alpha, but it’s already looking quite promising. Can it do what Radical Heights failed to do, and push its way into the conversation between PUBG and Fortnite? Realm Royale: A Different Take on BR What started as merely an offshoot Battle Royale mode of Paladins, has blossomed into an early alpha-state gem of the BR world. Cartoony and charming like Fortnite, but with somewhat more refined gun mechanics and a MOBA-esque class / hero system, and you have the simple […]
Fortnite Season 4

Fortnite Season 4: Map Changes, Meteor Crash Sites, Spray Painting, and More!

The hype train is in full gear once again as Season 4 of Fortnite: Battle Royale is upon us! Unlike with past seasons, EPIC has been pretty tight-lipped coming into Season 4, not really revealing much about the changes that were coming, and building plenty of speculation with the looming meteor in the sky, along with outposts scattered throughout the map to watch said meteor. As season 3 came to a close, meteorites even began falling from the sky, which could destroy the environment and player structures as they hit the ground.  This is all we really had to go […]

What We Can Expect in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon

Last fall, Pokemon Sun and Moon launched and enjoyed widespread popularity. Everything was pretty much on point in that game, from the new kinds of gym battles (called Island Trials), to the brand new Pokemon designs, to the Z-Crystal mechanics and the rich story-line and fun characters. The Alola region in general, where Pokemon Sun and Moon takes place, seems to have struck a chord in Pokemon fans everywhere, especially in Japan, where spinoff manga and pop culture have embraced it openly. Not ones to disappoint, Gamefreak is rolling out sequels this fall, dubbed Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra […]

NEW SERIES: Let’s Survive The Pirates of Dark Water

The time has come, our new series is here at last. I actually managed to cram this into my schedule, because torturing myself trying to beat retro Sega games is something I’ve always aspired to do (not joking?) We’re kicking off the series with Pirates of Dark Water, an action platformer that used to give me hell when I played years ago. There’s actually a ton of reasons why I wanted to trudge through this game. One, it’s got fast-paced gameplay that I remember enjoying. It’s got decent music, somewhat intriguing levels, and of course a difficulty that should make […]
bloodborne reinventing the boss fight

Reinventing The Boss Fight (Why Bloodborne’s Rom is a Model for RPG Innovation)

We’re a few years out from the release of Bloodborne, yet the game continues to impress. With its character build varieties, randomized bonus dungeons, and fun PvP, it’s no wonder it still boasts a vibrant community and strong player base. Fans of Bloodborne and its sister game series Dark Souls know why they keep coming back: they’re simply fun, challenging, well-designed games.  I’ve only just begun diving into Bloodborne and discovering everything it has to offer, but as a longtime video game fan it hasn’t taken me long to realize how much Bloodborne turns conventional RPG norms on their head.
