It’s one of those games that you glanced at and probably forgot about. A few weeks go by, and you see it again (either from an ad or … Continue reading Outer Worlds Review: Honestly a bloody good game

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. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, is from the same creators as Dark Souls and Bloodborne, and naturally the game is just as difficult, if not worse, than its predecessors. However, despite the 78493749238 boss tries, the … Continue reading Sekiro – How this game teaches you about real life

Final Fantasy 7, Uncharted, and Resident Evil are all examples of games getting onto the “Remake” bandwagon. As gamers grow up (eventually becoming my ripe old age), they look towards old titles the same way an old man looks outside and wishes to be young again. You’ll never replace the fun, the excitement, the feeling of waking up on a Sunday morning and plugging in … Continue reading Top 7 games that needs a remaster RIGHT NOW
I was asked a lot about how Gamescom 2019 in Cologne was. And to be honest, no words I say on the spot can describe the feeling I felt as an attendee. That’s why I wrote a blog post. And did a video. It’s not so much the plethora of games which people would queue up for (probably even longer than the line to get … Continue reading Gamescom 2019: A 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. Yet I randomly opened this series up on a random Sunday morning, and guzzled it down entirely, relishing the … Continue reading The Hollow (Netflix) 2018 Review
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. With these two titles gaining traction faster than the speed of a gamer’s keyboard flying across the room when he ends up in the second spot in any of these games, it … Continue reading Battle Royale Games: How did they do so well?

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 young and old. Maintaining its position as the top app for … Continue reading Pokemon GO: How did the Hype Die Down

In case you haven’t noticed, the mobile app craze Neko Atsume has been spreading like wildfire in many English-speaking countries since it’s been translated from Japanese to English. Now even YOU can own a whole yard of cats that come by your house just to play with your stuff and leave you fish. The gameplay is essentially very simple. In fact, a bit too simple. You start … Continue reading Why Neko Atsume Could be the Best Game Ever
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 photographs look optimistic. Just to make things clear: I’m not trying … Continue reading What MLMs really are.
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 and things that interest you. However, herd mentality kicks in. When … Continue reading Should you join a CCA when studying in University?
Similar to Maplestory, a game that dominated most of our time when we should be studying was Gunbound. Similar to Worms, it was a 2D shooting game where players moved about in tanks and blew everybody off the map. Ah.. the joys of childhood. Here are some memories from Gunbound that you probably experienced before. From my previous post, listening to the BGM while reading … Continue reading 8 things You Probably Miss From the Old Gunbound

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 you enjoyed last summer. You ask yourself, “Why was I so … Continue reading 3 things My Internship Taught Me that No School Ever Did
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! 8. This was competitive gaming at its finest 9. 10. … Continue reading 13 Memories from MSN Messenger

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 a wedge in between GTA and itself. In fact, it has … Continue reading A Grand Theft Auto Clone No More. Is that Necessarily good?
Whether you’re a hardcore gamer or a casual gamer, chances are you’ve either played or come across one of the more popular games back then: MapleStory. However, so much has changed since then, with the Big Bang, new classes with dragons floating over their heads, and new maps with even weirder monsters. The real essence of MapleStory is so much different now. For the sake … Continue reading 11 Things We Probably Miss from the Old MapleStory
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, as always, is great. You play Talion, an undead revived … Continue reading LOTR: Shadows of Mordor
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 of life’s greatest lessons implanted into it, even more than a … Continue reading 6 Things Neopets Taught Me Which No School Ever Did
Even though this post is slightly late, it should still be mentioned that Heroes of the Storm Beta is out! So go and sign up here: http://us.battle.net/heroes/en/?- I get a lot of questions in the form of: Why should I switch over from Dota/LoL to this unheard of Moba? Therefore, this post is dedicated to these ignorant fools. I’m kidding about the ‘ignorant fools part. … Continue reading 3 Reasons why you should get the Heroes of the Storm Beta Key
Another game that I’ve been playing was DC Universe Online (http://dcuo.playpark.com/en/) especially since now it has moved to Asian servers and is less laggy (apparently). For those who don’t know what DC Universe Online (DCUO) is about, get your head out of the well and prepare to see a game that is bound to set any fanboy’s emotions ablaze. This is the trailer for the … Continue reading DC Universe Online comes to Singapore!
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. However, I’ve always come across people who simply refused to pick up the game. “I’ve not played Pokemon for so long! There’s too many … Continue reading 4 Reasons Why You Should Play Pokemon Right Now
Hi everybody! And welcome to this new blog. My name is Theodoric, and most people call me Theo.

No, too whiny. The food I will be eating? Nah, too cliché and … Continue reading 4 Questions to Ask When Making your 2015 New Year Resolutions
I feel this is a bit overdue, but I’ll post it anyway: A review of Ubisoft’s Watchdogs. I do not deny that this game was over-hyped up, which could only lead to one of the two things: you either live up to expectations or die trying. In a sense it’s not a win-lose situation but an ok-lose situation. Watchdogs certainly had a lot to account … Continue reading Watchdogs: A Review
So if you had been playing Hearthstone the last few days, you would have realized that the new expansion ‘Goblin VS Gnomes’ (GvG) is out in the arena. Call it Blizzard’s money-making scheme if you will. The hype-train for this is crazy. The slow and steady release of the new cards in the expansion and the subsequent release of all the cards at one go … Continue reading Goblin VS Gnome Review
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 the dailies certainly played a huge role in my commitment to … Continue reading The Science of Daily Quests
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 have better aesthetics as it is easier to incorporate vibrant colours, … Continue reading What Makes A Good Mobile Game?
From 2013 onwards, there has been a tremendous surge in the number of card games for the mobile platform. Apart from the giant known as Hearthstone, there are other card games in the app stores that are a great hit with mobile users. Some examples include: Ayakashi Ghost Guild by Zygna Valkyrie Crusade by Nubee Guardian Cross by Square Enix Indeed, these few years have … Continue reading 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. Instead of navigating a bird sideways, you now need to guide an adorably cute helicopter upward without hitting any of the hammers that swing from each gate. You get a point for every gate you pass through. Basically, this is … Continue reading Test Your Sanity with Flappy Bird’s Successor: Swing Copters
View my post at http://2p.com/8192201_1/WoW-Subscribers-down-by-800000-Will-Warlords-of-Draenor-save-it-by-theophay.htm Once again, we see WoW’s subscriber count dip to a new low. According to Times, It now stands at 6.8 million, down from 7.6 million from the last quarter. To put into perspective, the last time WoW stood at this low was in mid-2006, one and a half year since its release. However, it was quoted that this decline is seasonal … Continue reading WoW Subscribers down by 800,000. Will Warlords of Draenor Save It?
View my post at http://2p.com/8400144_1/First-Impressions-Warlords-of-Draenor-Boosted-to-level-90-by-theophay.htm This article will be the time when I boosted my level to level 90 in the Warlord of Draenor beta. “Check out my funky armour. Also, I realised how ugly Worgens looked after playing them, so I’ll only post my human shot. Anyway, this is the starter armours for anyone who boost to level 90.” I chose a Worgen Mage (simply … Continue reading First Impressions: Warlords of Draenor, Boosted to level 90
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. Games I’ve played after WoW (admittedly not much) such as RO2, … Continue reading The Death of World of Warcraft
