Outer Worlds Review: Honestly a bloody good game

Sekiro – How this game teaches you about real life

Let’s ignore all the GOTY 2019 shenanigans, and all the hype around the game. Is Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice actually fun? Short Answer: Yes Long Answer: WHATINTHEWORLDTHISISSODIFFICULT but also yes.

Top 7 games that needs a remaster RIGHT NOW

Final Fantasy 7, Uncharted, and Resident Evil are all examples of games getting onto the “Remake” bandwagon.

You’ll never replace the fun, the excitement, theContinue reading “Top 7 games that needs a remaster RIGHT NOW”

The Hollow (Netflix) 2018 Review

Rating: 8/10 I have never binge watched an entire series at one go before (yes, go ahead and judge me) even while watching immersive worlds like Game of Thrones, countless fight scenes in anime, and the revolutionizing story of how a high school girl committed suicide.

Battle Royale Games: How did they do so well?

Okay, so what comes into mind when you think about Battle Royale games? If your answer isn’t Fortnite or PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS (PUBG), do feel free to come out of the well anytime now.

Pokemon GO: How did the Hype Die Down

Word. Pokemon GO, whether you like it or not, took the world by storm during its release. It didn’t contain breakthrough-level technology (AR and Location-based gameplay have been in the market for some time), but it had a place close to our hearts being the talk of all media and the hype of mobile gamers youngContinue reading “Pokemon GO: How did the Hype Die Down”

What MLMs really are.

Today we’ll be looking at what is probably one of the most controversial start-up ‘concepts’ to date: Multi-Level Marketing, or ‘MLM’ for short. You’ve probably read a lot of hate articles on how MLMs are unethical, ‘cheating’ people of their money. However, I feel that these articles cast a light so negative, even pre-developed photographsContinue reading “What MLMs really are.”

Should you join a CCA when studying in University?

So some people have been asking me, “Is it important to join a CCA in university?” CCAs (Co-curriculum Activities), at least in my school, are not mandatory. This is certainly a refreshing change for some people who attended schools that made CCA compulsory. There is now so much more time to pursue your hobbies andContinue reading “Should you join a CCA when studying in University?”

8 things You Probably Miss From the Old Gunbound

Similar to Maplestory, a game that dominated most of our time when we should be studying was Gunbound.

Here are some memories from Gunbound that you probably experienced before.Continue reading “8 things You Probably Miss From the Old Gunbound”

3 things My Internship Taught Me that No School Ever Did

It’s coming to the end of May, and most of us university/polytechnic students are probably already bogged down by the harsh but necessary reality that is called an ‘Internship’. By now, you’re probably already bruised (hopefully only psychologically) and beaten. Waking up at 7am is the norm instead of the perfect timing of 12pm youContinue reading “3 things My Internship Taught Me that No School Ever Did”

13 Memories from MSN Messenger

Other than Maplestory, something else that dominated most of our time when we should be studying was MSN Messenger. Here are some memories from it: 1. 2. 3. 4. The birth of torrent. 5. C.A.M.P.F.I.R.E.S.O.N.G song – Spongebob Squarepants apparantly didn’t make you cool 6. 7. Look at what our names were represented by previously!Continue reading “13 Memories from MSN Messenger”

A Grand Theft Auto Clone No More. Is that Necessarily good?

For years, Saints Row has always been dubbed the clone of Grand Theft Auto . With an open world gameplay, a storyline that centers around a gang looking for total control, and senseless shooting with all kinds of weapons, it’s hard not to look at it that way. However, SR:GofH seeks to finally put aContinue reading “A Grand Theft Auto Clone No More. Is that Necessarily good?”

The real essenceContinue reading “11 Things We Probably Miss from the Old MapleStory”

LOTR: Shadows of Mordor

What happens when you combine the already-awesome Lord of the Rings (LOTR) franchise, a fluid combat system (from Batman Arkham series), a fantastic stealth system (probably even better than Assassin’s Creed) while killing Uruks in an open world (like Grand Theft Auto) and plenty more? You essentially get LOTR: Shadows of Mordor (SoM). The storyline,Continue reading “LOTR: Shadows of Mordor”

6 Things Neopets Taught Me Which No School Ever Did

The word ‘Neopets’ is probably nostalgic to everyone, especially those born in the 90s. It signalled the beginning of an era where you had to fight to use the telephone or the Internet and also the slow loading of images. Nonetheless, Neopets bore the significance of being life’s greatest tutor. Neopets actually had all ofContinue reading “6 Things Neopets Taught Me Which No School Ever Did”

4 Reasons Why You Should Play Pokemon Right Now

With the recent release of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire (ORAS), it’s a fine question to ask whether you can or should get the new Pokemon game to experience it for the first time or to re-live some nostalgic moments.

The Science of Daily Quests

Daily quests, or dailies for short, is not a new concept in the MMORPG genre. It’s prominence was mostly depicted in WoW, where the quests had significantly better rewards than repeatable quests. According to WoWwiki,  dailies are repeatable quests that can be acquired and completed once per day. I’ve been recently playing Hearthstone and HotS, and theContinue reading “The Science of Daily Quests”

What Makes A Good Mobile Game?

What makes a good mobile game? For this article, I will be discounting marketing and budget limitations. This formula considers graphics and sound, genre, pricing model, and gameplay simplicity. Aesthetics To achieve good aesthetics, we are concerned with choosing either ‘realistic’ or ‘cartoon-like’ interfaces for graphics and sound. A ‘cartoon-like’ game is likely to haveContinue reading “What Makes A Good Mobile Game?”

The Emergence of Card Games: Something You May not Know

Smartphone owners beware. Prepare to test your sanity with Flappy Bird’s Successor: Swing Copters. The legendary creator of Flappy Bird Dong Nguyen did it again.

The Death of World of Warcraft

World of Warcraft , or WoW to most people, has been the epitome of a MMORPG. They had once perfected the formula of an intriguing lore, interactive gameplay and a generally fun MMORPG, to the extent that new entrants of MMORPGs can only hope to follow WoW and hopefully differentiate itself along the way. GamesContinue reading “The Death of World of Warcraft”
