Fighting Game Venture

My Venture into Getting (Somewhat) Decent at Fighting Games

Throughout my many years of being a gamer – all 21 of them! – I’ve always had a small, secret love for fighting games, but whenever I’ve tried delving into a fighting game I’ve never managed to get hooked enough to keep me coming back to try and get that much better at the game.

So, to completely maneuver around this, I have decided to put an investment behind me getting better at fighting games; at least to some degree...

Journey to Un’Goro – Very Nearly Here (For EU)

As I write this, there’s currently a wait time of about 2 hours remaining until Journey to Un’Goro is finally going to be released to my region. I’m fully aware that America has been enjoying this expansion for the past couple of hours, but that doesn’t mean I’m still going to lament about having to wait regardless!

Be aware, that I’ll be looking at this from a casual player’s perspective and by that I mean I won’t be analysing certain cards because I don’t nearly have enough of an in-depth know...

Hearthstone – Year of the Mammoth Changes

Even as I start to write out this post, I can’t quite believe a whole year has passed; more specifically a whole year for Hearthstone since it implemented the Standard format – a change many players were pleased to witness; with myself included. As the year of the Kraken slowly starts to come to an end, it’s been revealed that the year of the Mammoth will be receiving a number of changes; some small and some really REALLY big!

One of the first major changes to the year of the Mammoth comes along...

Personal Thoughts

My Opinion on the Nintendo Switch

Several weeks back, we as an industry were treated to the release date of the brand new console from Nintendo: the Switch. During this brief period of hype around the brand new console, I quickly found myself getting relatively bogged down by the Switch after seeing the trailer; and I’ve tried my best to put my thoughts and feelings into why.

First and foremost, the main problem I have with the Switch is the fact that it’s coming out in the middle of the current console generation...

Let it Die – Dark Souls gone Bonkers

A week after Final Fantasy XV (15) was released, I found myself without a game to focus some of my time on; with the exception of occasionally going back to it to try and get the Platinum trophy – which may take me a sweet while! Anyways, back on to what I was saying; I was perusing the PlayStation Store and discovered a free-to-play game under the name of “Let it Die” and I thought that there wasn’t anything for me to lose and got set on downloading the game...

The Bug Butcher – Slaughtering Time!

So, I looked inside my inbox the other day, and I noticed a little message saying that I had a renewable code for this little indie game, called The Bug Butcher. I wasn’t too sure what to expect when I first loaded up the game, especially since it didn’t sound like the sort of game I would necessarily be into, as at first it sounded like a poorly designed third-person shooter; but I am very happy to say that I was proven wrong almost from the exact moment I loaded it up.

The game loads up with ...

Games Like Zone – Review

Now, while this may be a little different for me and my practically non-existent blog, I’ve been asked if I would be willing to review a gaming website and as you can probably tell from the fact that this post is now live, instead of being stuck in my “Drafts”, I decided to take them up on the offer.

So, first of all; what is GamesLikeZone...

Radiant Entertainment bought by Riot Games

Rising Thunder was/is a 2D fighting game, currently in Alpha, developed specifically for the PC, where the whole crux of the game was the special moves could be accomplished with nothing more than a button tap. This allowed for even the most basic of fighting game players to jump in and have a laugh, all without needing to stress out about complicated actions just to pull off one move. Oh, and every single character is a badass robot!

Now, it seems that the developers behind this game, Radiant E...

Hearthstone – Introduction of Standard and Other Changes

You’ve heard right! Hearthstone is getting Standard. What is Standard you may ask? Well, it’s a game mode where only the cards released in a specific recent timeframe (basic and classic cards excluded), in this case one calendar year, can be built into a deck. That means, when this update launches in Spring 2016, the cards that came along in the Goblins VS Gnomes expansion won’t be available for any Standard decks – that means no more Dr. Boom. Yay!

Thankfully, the game isn’t completely er...

Pokkén is Coming to EVO

Hey, you know that game where you get to pick one of your favourite Pokémon, only to watch them duke it out in a gentleman’s round of fisticuffs, all while in the style of the Tekken series? Well, it’s coming to EVO!

I don’t know all too much about either, but I do know that I’m a fan of both fighting games, as well as Pokémon, so having the two grouped together is one giant positive for me...
