5 Payday Akimbos Every Player Should Try

Last week MoustachedPotatoes and ‘uh’ requested a video covering akimbo weapons, since they, and myself have trouble telling them all apart. I confess that for the most part I just use the Akimbo STRYKs for everything, but after some research, I’ve learned about other builds that favor specific akimbos. So today we’re covering 5 Akimbo Weapons Every Player Should Try #1 – The Parabellum pistols can hit 32 concealment, the highest possible for non-DLC players. This is pretty great considering the amazing damage output. Speaking of damage output: #2 – The Goliath shotguns will probably never be as famous as… [Continue Reading]

Starting Out

Team Fortress Classic, Team Fortress 2, and Overwatch have defined my gaming career. TFC was the first online multiplayer game I ever played, TF2 will forever be my most-played game with over 3400 hours clocked, and Overwatch was my flagship title when I started getting really serious about creating GIFs, videos, and overall promoting myself within the gaming community. In any game I play, I’ve always considered the “first life” something worth remembering, since it’s my very first story told from beginning to end within the confines of this new universe. I actually played TFClassic first, even though I started my… [Continue Reading]

The Greatest Moment in the Overwatch League Just Happened

Today was the first day of the Overwatch League playoffs, with the six best teams returning to face off in a three-week series to take home up to $1 million in bonus money. The first season of the Overwatch League had something of a bell curve when it came to the teams’ performance; the best teams were unstoppable juggernauts, the worst teams were pushovers, and everybody else was somewhere in the middle. Because of this, the first day of the playoffs were expected to be easy stomps for the Boston Uprising and London Spitfire. In the Spitfire’s case, the casters weren’t voting… [Continue Reading]

When I covered 5 Free Weapons Every Payday Player Should Try, several people were disappointed that I focused exclusively on the bizarre weapons that had unique mechanics, instead of covering all-purpose firearms from the ordinary weapon categories. This video is for them: 5 Versatile weapons For Base Game Players in Payday 2 Starting with #1, The Union 5.56 is one of the easiest and most effective assault rifles in the whole game, mostly due to its nonexistent recoil, huge magazine and better-than average stats across the board.

Board Games: Cash ‘N Guns & Bloodbound

One of the coolest parts about attending the UCSC Games & Playable Media program is the games lounge on the second floor. It’s a large room with a bunch of gaming consoles, board games, and tabletop RPG books, and I’ve been able to play all sorts of different board games in the last year.

If you’re the sort who looks for games that large groups can enjoy, I highly recommend these two, especially because… [Continue Reading]

Overwatch Adds Hamster Droideka

The newest Overwatch hero came completely out of left field. (Or, to be more, specific, the moon.) The unexpected hamster is even more surprising since ‘Hammond’ as a character has been the most anticipated new hero since Sombra and Doomfist. Ever since the Horizon Lunar Colony map was added, revealing that the only two escaped test subjects were Winston and ‘Hammond’, people have been theorizing that Blizzard will add a new chimp hero. These theories conflated with the jetpack cat meme that was born around the same time, further expanding the list of species fans were hypothesizing, and ever since… [Continue Reading]

The 5 Best Joker Cops in Payday 2

Joker is my second-favorite skill in the game, behind Inspire. There are a lot of cops to choose from, but you only get to convert one or two, so it’s important you pick the best convertible cop available. So today, we’re covering The 5 Best Joker Cops in Payday 2! Starting with #1, the basic rule of thumb is to prioritize any cop carrying a shotgun. Shotguns are incredibly powerful in this game, there’s a reason Bulldozers carry them.

Yesterday the second-ever Major League Magic tournament happened between 16 players, many of whom returned from our March 9th tournament.
