If you told Belgian developer Larian Studios that they were going to give new life to an entire genre that had been lying dormant since the release of a niche little game called Baldur’s Gate 2, they probably would’ve laughed at your face.

And boy did they ever deliver. Launched in Autumn 2017, Divinity instantly owned the market and was declared by many as the best game of that year,…

As the creator of the Sean Bean meme has famously written, “One does not simply” …well, sell a million copies within the first 2 months of release. But when we talk about video games, Ghent-based developers Larian Studios showed us that not only are these kinds of numbers in a saturated gaming environment still possible, but they are exactly what it takes to change the face of the market and change it for good. Before we really talk about the best Divinity Original Sin 2 builds, let’s just take a dive into the masterpiece that is Divinity: Original Sin 2.…

Far often, we are left asking ourselves what the future of gaming might be. Now, it’s not like there haven’t been attempts before at revolutionizing one of the highest-earning sources of entertainment in the history of mankind; with stature, revolution is a paltry formality. Initially, we moved from 2D images to 3D, followed by the concept of virtual reality allowing further immersion into a non-existent space. But that was all about the nature of video games, and what they might be moving forward, but what about the final product that we enjoy? It has long been established that gaming is…

Over the last few years, you’ve probably heard quite a lot about cloud gaming. It almost feels like every day there is a new cloud gaming service being announced. Sony, Microsoft, NVIDIA, and Google all have their own platforms now. It looks like even Netflix is about to get in on it. So far cloud gaming has been met with a lot of skepticism and even ambivalence from the gaming community. Gamers can be pretty traditional. We buy our platform. We buy our game. We install it. Games might be digital, but we’ve been reluctant to give up our hard…

Indeed it was so bad the whole thing was shuttered and re-released in 2012 with the tag “a realm reborn”.

However, no game is perfect so I’ve compiled a list of mods to make your FFXIV experience even better. If you haven’t taken the plunge yet, you can buy it here. So Why Mod FFXIV?…

Streaming’s the evolution of reality TV with more reality in it. In gaming, podcasting, ASMR (or at least what ASMR was supposed to be,), etc., streamers share a sizeable chunk of their reality with an audience. Now, this reality may be audience-induced and driven, but it still is as close to the real ‘you’ as possible, where you are the streamer. How much do streamers make then? They make loads. Streaming creates an audience sporting enviable retention statistics, the holy grail for businesses who pay huge bucks just to advertise to this crowd who’ll surely log in tomorrow as well.…

As far as video games go, a very small amount of them goes on to innovate so far as to build a franchise around them.
