Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few years, you’ve probably heard of Fortnite. It was released in 2017 and has since become a pop-culture phenomenon with over 350 million users. Fortnite mixed up the usual formula however by adding building into the mix. Players can build structures to defend themselves, traverse the map or find new ways to attack their opposition. Making it a hit with the younger audience. However, it hasn’t all been smooth sailing. On one front, parents, schools, and even some countries are attempting to block Fortnite on children’s devices to limit their…

Gaming is forever changing. As gamers, we have to get used to the fact that our chosen hobby is always in flux. Nothing lasts for very long and there is always a new trend around the corner. This means that as a gamer you need to constantly keep up with the latest news and the latest fads. There isn’t a whole lot of time to look back.

There are very few absolute truths in the world. However, I feel safe in saying most films based on video games are pretty terrible. Much in the same way that most video games that are based on films are terrible. Rarely, one of these films comes across as anything other than a desperate cash-grab. Most of them stray so far away from the source material they are barely related or recognizable (Final Fantasy I’m looking at you). Or the original story just doesn’t translate well to film. What makes a film good is highly subjective. And this is extra true…

I don’t know many gamers who like loot boxes/ loot crates in games. They’re a money-grabbing blight on the modern gaming space that is pretty much universally hated. They’re the unholy child of gambling and micro-transactions. You would think then that basing your whole business around real-world loot boxes and then naming it lootcrate.com would be a bad idea then. Gamers, nerds, geeks, enthusiasts. Whatever you call us one fact is true, we’re pretty easily separated from our money. So Loot Crate throws some random merchandise into a crate every month and you pay for it. Maybe you’ll get some…

Some prefer the feel of the Switch Pro controller (which looks suspiciously like an Xbox controller). Some gamers will go even further back and claim that Gamecube’s controller was perfect. No one says the Nintendo 64’s controller. That thing was awful. Lots of gamers prefer the Xbox controllers. They fondly remember the original “Duke ” and everything else since has been an improvement. The thumbsticks placement is more ergonomic and the shape is less slippery than the Dualshock and Dual…

We all have our favorite console controller. Some gamers love the feel of the Xbox controller. Some gamers hail the switch pro controller. To me, the Dualsense for PS5 is a great controller. I’m a huge fan of the Haptic feedback and Adaptive triggers which make gaming much more immersive than anything I’ve experienced before. So Why Buy a Custom PS5 Controller? The stock PS5 controller has two big problems: The looks. You either love the look of the DualSense or you hate it. Even worse the white finish shows up sweaty gamer grease and Cheeto dust like no tomorrow. …
