The 2010s in Gaming – A Look Back

Adios, old decade! Tomorrow is the first day of the new ’20s, a decade sure to be just as roaring as the one that used to be known as the ’20s’. I’ve often wondered just how long it takes for the old century to fall out of conversation and get replaced by the new one in abbreviated parlance. Guess we might be finding out somewhere around the 2050s, is my personal guess. But anyway! The ’10s were certainly a hell of a decade, especially for gaming. We were treated to some huge advancements in graphics, hardware, and processing capabilities. The… [Continue Reading]

In this video, I’m covering some cheap skins that base players should consider buying not for their looks, but for the gun mods they unlock.

Why Apex Legends is the Best Battle Royale

I previously covered PUBG and Fortnite on this channel, and you may have noticed neither of them stuck around for very long because I just couldn’t get into them. To be honest, I’ve never been a fan of the Battle Royale genre in general, but Apex Legends is seriously the first Battle Royale game that I’m finding legitimately fun on its own merits and I’m amazed that I can’t wait to start playing it even from the moment I’ve turned it off for the night. The developers have looked at all the things that usually make Battle Royales boring and… [Continue Reading]

The 5 Most Influential Half-Life Mods

Half-Life was a great game, had a huge impact on the shooter genre and everybody who grew up back then loved this game, myself included. Valve did a decent job of releasing new content for us all to play, such as Blue Shift and Opposing Force, but the real heroes were the modders who filled the voids with hundreds of standalone fangames of every conceivable length and quality. A few of them are super famous, and if it made this list, it’s because I think you should go play it. Quick Disclaimer: This list is only interested in mods, not… [Continue Reading]

How to Play a Combat Medic in Fortnite

Back in July I saw an amazing video on the Fortnite subreddit. User JyeunJyeun had made a little mock recruitment trailer showcasing his new playstyle, where he exclusively focused on supporting his team in the massive 50v50 shootouts. I’d played a bit of Fortnite here and there, but I’d mostly let it fall by the wayside because I prefer games with a healing class. JyeunJyeun’s medic playstyle was the gateway drug that finally got me into Fortnite, and I made a quick video in honor of the playstyle!
