The Forest: A Glitchy, Boring Mess

SPOILER ALERT: This article contains spoilers for the video game, The Forest. The Forest started off strong. You’re stranded in a forest after a violent plane crash with a strange creature taking your son after the crash. You pick up an axe and survey your surroundings, maybe explore a little bit and run around with your friends. (Assuming you’re playing with them.) And then you see them–strange humanoid creatures running around in packs, and you’re forced to slash them with your axe, or you run away as you look behind you, anxious they’re on your back. This is the fun part of The Forest. And you better enjoy it, because it’s probably going to be the only fun you’re going to have. Actually, I take that back. There is some fun left to be had. You may waste some time building up a base, defending from attacks from the creatures. Then the…

Hytale: Minecraft’s Killer?

  If you are not familiar with Hytale, which is highly probable despite the announcement trailer having well over thirty million views, I’ll give you a quick rundown of what the game is set to be. Hytale was named “Hytale” after its creators, the staff of the extremely popular minecraft server “Hypixel,” whose server holds about twenty thousand players on average throughout the day. According to the website, Hytale, “…combines the scope of a sandbox with the depth of a roleplaying game, immersing players in a procedurally generated world where teetering towers and deep dungeons promise rich reward.” There’s a few more things you need to know before we move on, and one of these things is that Hytale supposedly offers amazing scripting tools and tools for creators to make their own minigames within the game without going through all that trouble. There will be many servers on Hytale as…

Pokemon Let’s Go Info

Pokemon Let’s Go has changed Pokemon in many ways. It makes it so the player can’t fight wild Pokemon, and that might sound like a bad thing, but it makes the game quicker more efficient and easier. It also changes the process of catching Pokemon and shiny hunting. Now that the player can see Pokemon while walking through the routes, it is possible to actually catch ’em all. Some pokemon are version-exclusive (for either Pokemon Let’s Go: Pikachu or Pokemon Let’s Go: Eevee) so here is a guide. P = Pikachu, E = Eevee Growlithe (P), Arcanine (P), Vulpix (E), Ninetails (E), Oddish (P), Gloom (P), Vileplume (P), Bellsprout (E), Weepinbell (E), Victreebel (E), Sandshrew (P), Sandslash (P), Meowth (E), Persian (E), Electabuzz (P), Magmar (E), Grimer (P), Muk (P), Koffing (E), Weezing (E), Mankey (P), Primeape (P), Ekans (E), Arbok (E), Scyther (P), Pinsir (E). Shiny hunting has changed…


Spider-Man for PS4

WARNING: BIG SPOILERS At Sony’s E3 Conference in 2017, they released the first gameplay for their new game Spider-Man. Spider-Man was then released for gold members on July 30th, 2018 and released for all users on September 7th, 2018. When this game was released, people were giving it amazing reviews; some people even went on to say, “It is a perfect game.” On the website Metacritic, Spider-Man was given an 8.7/10, IGN gave it an 8.7/10, Google Users gave the game a 9.5/10, and GameSpot gave it a 9/10.   Gameplay: First of all, the gameplay in this game is excellent. The best part (in my opinion) is the web-slinging. It is very realistic and has a great noise. Another part is the fighting animation. Spidey is kind of like a glass cannon: he does a lot of damage but is very weak. It’s like he dies in two hits….

CS:GO All-Time Greats

The one question many CS:GO fans ask is, “What is the best CS:GO team in history?” Many people will answer: the current Astralis roster or the old Fnatic roster. In this article we will be comparing what many people call the two best CS:GO teams in history.   Current Astralis Roster: dev1ce (AWPer/Rifler) dupreeh (Rifler/Entry Fragger) Xypn9x (Support/Rifler) gla1ve (IGL) Magisk (Rifler/Lurker)   Former Fnatic Roster: olofmeister (Lurker/Secondary AWPer) KRiMZ (Support) JW (AWPer) flusha (Rifler) Pronax (IGL) These two rosters are considered the best ever in CS:GO history. Of course it is hard to compare two rosters from different times, but we will try our best. We will be judging them on tournament placement and overall skill in the players. We will be counting the amount of tournament wins each roster had. Astralis has won eleven tournaments with its current roster; they have only had nine months to win these tournaments…


Game Preview: Fallout 76

Fallout 76 will be Bethesda Games’ first online game. Players may play individually or with a party of up to three others. Elements of previous Fallout games will be present and modified to work with the real-time game. The V.A.T.S. system—a mechanic first introduced in Fallout 3 that allows players to pause the game to target specific locations on an enemy’s body to attack—will be used in Fallout 76 as a real-time system, though it will still allow players to specify targets on an enemy’s body. All the servers for the game will be dedicated, with the player automatically allocated to one of them.While the game is expected to launch with public servers only, game director Todd Howard revealed plans for private servers to be introduced some time after the game’s launch. Howard described the delay as being necessary to allow Bethesda time to assure the stability of public servers….
