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. The exception is #2) If you’re playing a heist with a lot of open area, like Heat Street or Armored Transport… [Continue Reading]

Everybody had a blast, and we actually made something of a splash on Twitch, with over 30 viewers at peak levels thanks to our fans spreading the word on Twitter! Everybody really seemed to love the terrain-manipulation elements, as the players’ spell selections crafted the arena into mountain-ridden hellscapes, empty desiccated plains, and everything in between. In the end, Jason won 1st place and became the first ever undefeated champion in a Major League Magic tournament (last tournament’s winner, Joey, reached the… [Continue Reading]
