Why you should avoid insurance in Blackjack

Players who often play blackjack in casinos would know that a side bet more popularly known as an insurance bet is offered to players. Unfortunately, many players especially the new ones take the insurance bet thinking its a good way of minimizing losses in the card game. They fail to realize that insurance for blackjack is quite the opposite since it’s a bad bet. What is Insurance in Blackjack? An insurance bet is only available after players have already dealt with their first two cards and if the dealer is showing an ace. Players then must decide whether they would have their bets insured or not before playing their hand. Insurance in a blackjack game means placing a side wager outside of the primary bet. The value of the side bet is usually equal to half of the amount of the main wager...

Greedfall – Review

Greedfall is the latest game by Spiders, known for Technomancer and Bound By Flame. And as much as their previous games had promise, Greedfall feels like the work of a studio finally coming to their own. You are a Legate, a diplomat of sorts, on a mission to build relationships with neighboring factions and to find a cure for a disease that has been plaguing the people. You meet various leaders, faction members, and characters along the way, and forge friendships and enmity. There’s a ton of choice at your disposal, and here’s where Greedfall truly shines (and all the Bioware influences show). You can bring companions along with you, and build kinship with them by talking to them and doing missions for them.  Combat is fairly straightforward, with melee, long range and magic spells/weapons...

Exception – Review

In Exception you enter an old lady’s computer that has been taken over by a totalitarian virus. You then make your way through neon lit levels, defeating foes using flashy combat, fast paced movement, and really cool looking platforming. At the best of times, Exception is a looker, with a lot of vibrant colors flashing across the screen, and the platforming is really tight. Even when you get stuck at a tough section, getting over it is rewarding, and a real delight. The levels also keep transforming, and is a mix between 2D and 3D which looks really neat. Plus this makes the exploration even more fun since triggering these changes is also a part of the gameplay. Plus the synth-wave soundtrack is an absolute banger. As the levels form and re-form and the music pulses around you, it...

Apsulov: End Of Gods – Review

Apsulov: End Of Gods is a narrative driven horror game based on the Norse mythology. You play as a women who finds herself within a research facility in Sweden where something has gone horribly wrong. You need to make your way out, and along the way uncover the events that transpired within the facility. Firstly, the atmosphere is incredible. The game looks fantastic, and the visual horror elements are done exceptionally well. The story is also really compelling, with the mysteries of the research facility constantly tugging you forward. The gameplay is mostly stealth focused, with some fights in between. However, the game mostly wants to tell you a story and scare you along the way, so don’t expect a lot ion terms of gameplay. Overall, the story, voice acting, and visuals had me com...

You set out into a forest, infamous for disappearances, in search of a young boy who has gone missing, You have a dog alongside you who helps you find clues and is always a warm presence in an otherwise unknown and harsh forest environment.

Sea King – Review

Sea King is a party game that you can play with up to three other players or play solo with AI characters. It’s a clever little game with a ton of charm and can be immensely fun to play. You pick a ship and set sail as a pirate on the sea. The game is top down and has a good variety of game modes. In fishing, you try to catch fish as quickly as you can while attacking your friends. In shark Pong you fire cannon balls at a shark so that he chases after the others. It’s really well presented, and the ships looks neat. Overall, a fun party game to play with friends.

Perchang – Review

Perchang is a physics based puzzle game that might look simple at first, but has a strong foundation and a surprising amount of depth. All you need to do is move small balls across a level and drop them into a funnel. It sounds easy enough, but then the game starts throwing some really clever obstacles your way and figuring it out becomes the main focus. There’s a good variety to the levels and there are a ton of them to keep you hooked for a good long time. Overall, solid value for money. Pros: Simple premise, smart execution Fun and challenging Cons: Some harsh difficulty spikes Score – 8.5/10 About: It’s a puzzle action strategy game with some lovely contraptions to really make you ponder. A beautifully balanced mix of difficulty and fun. The game revolves around getting lit...

Furwind – Review

Furwind is a 2D platformer with a really great art style. There are some Metroidvania elements here, but it’s not really a Metroidvania – you go through fairly linear levels without a lot of exploration or backtracking. Regardless, it still is really fun. The game is a bit short, but for the price is still good value. The story and soundtrack are also pretty good, and Furwind offers a challenge significant enough to keep you on your toes. There can be a few confusing moments, but nothing that can’t be passed through after a few head scratches. Pros: Fun gameplay Looks great Good soundtrack Cons: A bit short Score – 8/10 About: The old war between ancestors​ ended with the imprisonment of one of them. Darhûn, who was caged for eras, has been released from his captivity and is re...

Stranger Things 3 – Review

Stranger Things 3 closely follows the events of the third season of Netflix’s popular show by the same name. It’s a pixel art isometric game where you can play with a friend and explore Hawkins. For a game based on popular media, it’s surprisingly well done, and and if fact adds tidbits to the story that are not present in the show itself. Exploration and interaction is generally fun, while there are some fetch quests and repetition that detract from the overall experience. Since the game is based mostly on the events of the third season of the show, I would recommend playing it once you have seen all the episodes, and for it, it was actually better this way. Pros: Fun story Looks good Enjoyable Co-op Cons: Dull side quests Not for you if you’re not into the show  Score – 8/10 About:...
