If you are unfamiliar with PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds you may need a PUBG guide. The game is essentially the latest hugely successful battle royale with one huge exception: it is not total bobbins. With its numerous maps and weighty gunplay reminiscent of a military sim, new players face an almighty learning curve en route to their first chicken dinner. Understandably then, useful PUBG tips and tricks are in high demand, which is where this guide comes in handy. PUBG puts you on a plane with 99 other players, flies you over an enormous map full of large towns, military bases and humble farmsteads, and lets you choose where along the flight path you want to land. Once on the ground you will have to scramble together as much loot as you can find, make it to the randomly designated, constantly shrinking safe zone and duke it out with everyone else until you’re the last survivor. Knowing the map, tools of the trade, and some general PUBG tips and tricks will help you edge … [Read more...] about PUBG guide: tips and tricks for Battlegrounds wins

[Ed. note: Since 2014, Alex Aniel has been working on a book chronicling the history behind his favorite series, Resident Evil. Looking back at the franchise’s development history from the earliest days, the book — planned as two volumes — folds in interviews with many of the key figures who worked behind the scenes at Capcom. Aniel isn’t planning to release the first volume — titled An Itchy, Tasty History of Resident Evil: 1994-2006 (Vol. 1) — until later this year. But to celebrate today being the 21st anniversary of Resident Evil 2’s release, he has put together a preview of the book in the form of an excerpt looking back on the creation of RE2. It’s a story about staff changes, failed experiments, and extraordinary success. And it starts with the promotion of game director Hideki Kamiya.] In the late ’80s and early ’90s, Capcom released games that achieved respectable sales. Mega Man and Street Fighter did not light sales … [Read more...] about How Resident Evil 2 fell apart, then became one of Capcom’s biggest hits
You know the battle royale concept is a force to be reckoned with when a long-standing series like Call of Duty decides to join the fray. Black Ops 4 introduces Blackout, the series' rendition of last-person-standing deathmatch, and we've spent plenty of time with the new mode, which you can read about in our Black Ops 4 review. So, if you're not caught up on the battle royale craze or want to know how Black Ops 4 distinguishes itself from the top dogs of Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, we have you covered.Before getting into the details, you should note that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is a full-priced $60 game that comes with a new version of the lauded Zombies mode and traditional multiplayer modes in addition to Blackout (but no standard single-player campaign). The game is set to release on October 12 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Fortnite: Battle Royale on the other hand is free-to-play and playable on nearly every modern platform, including iOS and Android. Fortnite also … [Read more...] about How Does Blackout In Black Ops 4 Compare To Fortnite: Battle Royale And PUBG?
Probably one of the most talked-about elements of From Software’s flawed masterpiece Dark Souls is its boss encounters. The game is an intentional throwback to retro-style gaming, so bosses are unforgiving monstrosities with attack patterns to learn and overcome. Every Dark Souls player has their rival, their most hated (or loved) boss fight, the one that kept them awake for days as they strove to overcome it. There’s one boss, though, on which everyone is agreed. This boss comes around halfway through the game and marks a major turning point in terms of tone, level design, narrative, and general atmosphere. That boss is Anor Londo’s Ornstein and Smough, encountered while players are searching for the Lordvessel on behalf of the serpent Frampt (probably, anyway), and it’s this pesky pair we’ll be discussing today in Bullet Points. Bullet Points is a regular series that looks at a unique aspect to one game. You can find more of them … [Read more...] about Bullet Points: Dark Souls’ Ornstein And Smough Boss Battle
I received a request from one of the readers to talk about how to deal with negative family members and we’re going to expand that to include negative friends or people around you or in your circle that you’re kind of stuck with. My experience with this goes back many years. My family had been supportive to an extent but they didn’t understand what I did. Not one of them really ever understood me and I’d had to deal with a lot of negative people and negative people are never fun. I can remember a couple of things that I had to deal with then, just to give you an idea of what it was like for me,. For one, I felt as though NOTHING I did was ever good enough, like if I did something and I wanted to share it with them because I’m all excited with what I’d created, they’d say something negative about it, like, “Oh, you know maybe you should do something with your life that’s, you know, NOT THAT”. For me, the thing that used to piss … [Read more...] about How To Deal With Unsupportive or Negative Family/Friends
