Gundam Battle: Gunpla Warfare, and gacha in general

I love mechs. And my most favourite media franchise is Gundam. However, there really aren’t many games for the franchise out there on PC. As in, not many that I like. The bulk of them are strategy games, and the only strategy I know is “whack enemy with big stick”. When GBGW was first announced, I was quite excited for it. A Gundam game where I get to customize my own Mobile Suit and beat up other Mobile Suits? It’s like a dream come true. I wasn’t exactly pleased to find out that it’s a mobile game, but it doesn’t… [Continue Reading]

Level 50 is here in Pokemon Go but it is the GRINDIEST of Grinds!

On the last day of November, I opened up Pokemon GO and was SLAMMED with notifications. Tons of medals popped up out of nowhere! Most of them were either gold or platinum, for catching Pokemon and for doing various raids. I waited for a good couple of minutes for the medals to go away, then immediately spotted something else. The experience bar had popped up underneath my level 40 avatar. Levels 41-50 had arrived. And with them came a huge amount of grind. For level 41 alone, you need 6,000,000 experience. Pretty insane considering how you need 5,000,000 experience for… [Continue Reading]

Yet More Complaining About Mega Pokemon

I wasn’t going to complain any more about Mega Pokemon in Pokemon GO. It felt rather fruitless, especially since it’s so easily ignored. But, on a whim, I decided to Mega-Evolve a Gengar for a Lugia raid. My Gengar, with a CP of 3336, lasted all of 10 seconds. Lugia’s Dragon Tail kicked the shit out of it, then nuked Gengar with a Hydro Pump. I might as well have just used a Darkrai or a Giratina, both of which lasted far longer than my Mega Gengar did. This is despite me trying to dodge. Because dodging only seems to… [Continue Reading]

These New Isolation Vault Bounties Are Miserable

I thought I’d be happy to see more Deimos content, but it turns out I’m wrong. Yes, we got new bounties. However, these bounties are insanely tedious, not just to do, but to access as well! Like, who thought this was a good idea? Ugh, this is going to be a slog. Just like doing the actual bounties. To access a new bounty, you need to do its Isolation Vault. These new bounties are located in the underground Isolation Vaults. But to get to them, you need to do the related Isolation Vault bounty. So you’ve got to rush around… [Continue Reading]

The Nidoran Limited Research Event

Normally I like these limited research events. Catch a bunch of Pokemon, do some tasks, maybe get a shiny. Normally you end up spending a ton of Pokeballs and resources but the shiny chances are often boosted. Not as much as community days, but still overall pretty good. That being said, we’ve had one per month for the last few months, and, well, I’m getting bored of them. Nidoran Limited Research is no different. Really, the only difference between the Nidoran Limited Research and those for Drifloon and Meowth is that there’s two Pokemon instead of one. Although, in all… [Continue Reading]

Go Away, Team Rocket Grunt

I’m normally always happy to fight a Team Rocket Grunt. They look so spiffy in their little matching black and red outfits, and their silly one-liners. None of them are particularly hard to beat either. Since they scale with your trainer level, they’re never going to be THAT hard unless you use Pokemon they are super effective against. In fact, when I started a secondary account, I specifically wanted to try Team Rocket fights. And most of them were pretty doable! The only boss I ever failed to beat was Sierra with the double Lapras lineup. This was because I… [Continue Reading]

5 Heists For Farming Easy Cash in Payday 2

I’ve gotten a few requests over the years to make a sequel to my “5 Heists that Give Easy XP” video, except regarding cash. But for the most part, I haven’t felt the need to actually do so, since the game pretty much drowns you in dollars no matter what you do, and you should be sitting comfortably after completing a few heists of any length or difficulty, so my main advice is to just play what you want and don’t worry about it. But I guess if you have an academic curiosity, or a minmaxing fetish, here are 5… [Continue Reading]

Ranking the Cernos Bow Family

When it comes to weapons with the most unique variants, you’d think it’d be something simple, like the Skana or the starting Braton. After all, these are weapons seen from the very start of the game. They’re well-known and popular. For example, the Furis is one of the first guns you can make, and it has four variants. The normal Furis is given as a reward, while the MK1 Furis is in the market. But there’s also the Akfuris dual variant. AND we have the Dex Furis, the anniversary version. But for some reason, the Cernos, a random bow not… [Continue Reading]

An attempt at Art

Break Arts II is a beautiful game. There are moments in the race where everything blurred together into a whirlwind of colours, but throughout the game, the game looks stunning. Break Arts II is rather unusual for a mech game. While most mech games are either RTS games or action games, Break Arts II is a racing game. Imagine being able to build a race car from scratch, just that your “car” is a bipedal robot and you have the option to shoot your enemies to ruin their lead. That is Break Arts II in a nutshell. And speaking of… [Continue Reading]

Destiny 2’s DLC System Feels Expensive for What It Is

I’ve always wanted to like Destiny 2. The premise seems awesome. It’s like a cross between Borderlands and Halo with a hint of Warframe. I completely missed the train on Destiny 1, but Destiny 2 having both an open beta and becoming Free to Play meant I could give it a go. But every time I do try and get into Destiny 2, I get frustrated. Half of it is that I find the platforming required to be atrocious. The other half is that, well, I feel like I might as not be playing without DLC. Please note that this… [Continue Reading]
