What do you mean I never leave the house?

I have been to more places than you can ever imagine!

I have walked the plains of Mulgore. Prayed at Stormwind’s chapel. Slept under Darnassus trees. Explored Stranglethorn’s Valley. Cleansed the Plague Lands. Rode Griffins and even Manticores.

I have ventured into the depths of Blackrock Mountain. Fought the Scarlet Crusade. Defeated the Scourge. Slayed Onyxya and Nefarian. Partied in front of the gates of Orgrimmar as we displayed their heads to the world. And when I stepped into the Outlands, I WAS PREPARED!

So what do you mean I never…

The hugely successful online gacha game could become a template for other developers to replicate in future

Before Genshin Impact, no one really believed that a gacha game could ever achieve such a level of success on the PC and console market. The console and PC communities, in general, had the perception that gachas were simply predatory games devoid of gameplay content. Genshin Impact releases and those perceptions are shattered. So how did this particular game, managed to achieve that? And why is it such a dangerous precedent for the online gaming scene?

If you are a gamer this is something most likely you can relate to. At some point in time, someone is sure to have said one of these things to you or even all of them. It doesn't matter if you are young or old if someone says this to you it’s impossible not to feel annoyed.

1.Videogames are for kids

Every gamer has that one family member that eventually says “Aren’t you a bit too old to play videogames?”, it's so annoying to hear because it's not true.

The videogame industry is one of the largest in the world catering to many different…

Genshin Impact stands out thanks to its high quality and attention to detail

Genshin Impact, a free-to-play (F2P) action-adventure RPG has left its mark on the gaming industry with its unique RPG system and sprawling world for players to explore. You can explore the world of Teyvat, interact with an array of unique characters, and engage in fun, exhilarating combat. This game has more than proven that it can hold its own. But what makes Genshin Impact a game that stands out against its competitors is its design and great care for detail in developing this fun-filled game.

Mihoyo, the company behind Genshin Impact, is focused on creating games for the otaku community…

PVE survival done right

Valheim is a Viking-themed survival RPG created by Iron Gate Studio that's currently in early access. Unlike other titles such as ARK or Conan Exiles (which are very PvP-oriented), Valheim chooses to focus mainly on the PvE side of survival, and it does a very good job at it.

While Valheim is not the first survival game focused on PvE (Don't Starve is a good example), its different approach to the progression flow and core mechanics of the genre is a gamble that successfully sets it apart from the other games in the genre.

From physical to digital

Magic The Gathering has been the king of trading card games in physical form for many years, and with MTG Arena growing every day, soon it may be the king of digital card games as well.

This is not the first digital game Wizards of the Coast releases for MTG(Magic the Gathering). Prior releases like MTG Online and MTG Duels never even got close to the numbers MTG Arena is already reaching (over 3 million), so what changed? That’s exactly what I will try to answer with these five points.

1. The Digital Game Is Good

One of the most important reasons for the success of

I see myself as a dreamer.
Not one who dreams because he sleeps
But one who dreams because he has to
And dream I will dream as I dream.

I see myself as a thinker.
Not because I think about things
But because of the things, I think about
And I think thinking about things I will continue to think.

I see myself as a writer.
Not because I delve into the unknown
But because I feel the importance of the calling
And the calling I shall honor as I breathe.

I see myself as a loner. Not because I…
