Gambling Systems Among Video-Games

Some people say that gaming on a PC has nothing to do with online casinos. However, if we take a peak at the most famous video-games, we’ll see something else. Talking about games like Grand Theft Auto, Farcry, Hearthstone, League of Legends, Counter-Strike Global Offensive, Heroes of the Storm will make you understand what I mean. In games like GTA and Farcry, the gambling side is pretty straightforward. You take your character and start playing card games just like in any other land based casino. In particular, GTA lets you get a full experience of what a real casino is. In GTA San Andreas for example, you were able to enter a casino and enjoy slots roulette and card games. On the other hand, video-games like CS:GO, Hearthstone or LoL, the gamble system is a little different. IR...

Everspace – Review

Space exploration with procedurally generated environment alongside space combat and crafting, Everspace sounds a lot like No Man’s Sky but is so vastly different. It is a rouge-lite game with stunning visuals, great control and intense combat this is one of the most fun Space Explorations games I’ve played. And to top it all off, it even has a VR mode so you can immerse yourself even more and enjoy the gorgeous visuals. So let’s get right to the core of the game then. The game has just one mode which also features a story that is told through dialogue accompanied with image stills. You get these story bits everytime you get to a new Sector but that felt secondary to me because of how much fun the game was otherwise. You spawn into an area of the sector where then you mus...

Review: Rapoo V500Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Mechanical keyboards with Cherry MX switches are known for being really good, and really expensive. That might be about to change, because today we play around with Rapoo’s newest edition to its gaming lineup, the V500Pro gaming keyboard with Cherry MX Blue switches. It’s cheap, it’s Cherry, but is it worth it? Let’s find out. The Rapoo V500Pro checks all the boxes when it comes to the basic features that would appeal to gamers. It has multi-RGB backlighting with each key lit individually. It is a full-size keyboard with a numpad and of course there are the Cherry MX Blue switches. That being said, on the very first look one can tell easily that it’s not a premium piece of equipment. The build quality is not bad per se, but the plastic body with the metallic t...

Revere Automata – Iconoclasts – Review

A lot of 2D action platformers these days are heavy on their Metroidvania and Roguelike inspirations. Very few of them have a compelling narrative to them. Fewer still are able to merge that strong narrative and tight gameplay into one excellent package. Welcome to Iconoclasts – a game that has been seven long years in the making, and the final product more than shows the work that has been put into making it. You play as Robin, a mechanic without a licence in a world where machinery and technology are intertwined with magical forces revered in the hearts and minds of the common folk. Without her licence, Robin, becomes a target of the game’s central authoritarian powers, and she then sets out on a path that could shake the very foundation of the world. It’s a heavy plot that builds ...
