The Current Shape of the Digital Games Market

By: DanielCsaki in posted at Jun 26, 2016 10:26 pm

Today I would like to talk about the best video games that are now on the top charts across the platforms and genres.

According to the SuperData, May of 2016 was the month where the biggest changes took place. Funny enough, Overwatch went live around that time. Coincidence? I think not, and so will you after this.

The lists are divided into consoles, PC, the best free to play online games, the best pay to play online games, mobile games, and social video games.

I will mention only the first placed games and the most relevant, but if you want to know more, you can check it out at the SuperData site.

Now, let's talk about console games and which one took first place. Uncharted 4: Thief's End was by far the best selling game this year. Players went crazy when it came out and the stores

Master of Orion – Conquer the Stars on Steam

By: DanielCsaki in posted at Jun 26, 2016 11:36 am

Master of Orion – Conquer the Stars is a space combat game that purely focuses on strategy as the main path to victory. 

“Master of Orion is first and foremost a passion project for us, so it’s very important that we create a worthy successor. We feel Early Access is a critical step in engaging the Master of Orion fan base that will allow them to contribute to the continued development of this iconic 4X franchise.”

As it seems, NGD Studios is doing a pretty good job since the community on Steam labeled it as a really good one and they all left a positive feedback. Master of Orion – Conquer the Stars is bringing back all 10 original Master of Orion races, over 75 researchable technological advancements, galaxies with more than 100 solar systems, fully customizable ships and

Dex in a Nutshell

By: DanielCsaki in posted at Jun 26, 2016 11:28 am

Since Steam's Summer Sale is reaching its peak some of the little-known titles are emerging from the vast sea of discounts. One of those is Dex, an open-world cyberpunk RPG coming from Dreadlocks Ltd. a developer that likes to combine new technologies with old-school ways.

This game has a 2D, side-scrolling gameplay, that some old gamers know and love because it brings back some great memories. Story-wise, the game is focused around our main girl, Dex and she needs your help. The world is captured by an enigmatic AI that wants to bring the end to mankind and overtake the world. Dex's storyline takes place at Harbor Prime, the city where our hero resides.

Our main mission will be to take down this AI and nothing must stand between us and our goal. Dex is a fast learner, so she will be

Game Related Novels Are Worth Reading

By: DanielCsaki in posted at Jun 24, 2016 2:18 am

As I mentioned it before, nowadays it is a lot harder to find games that come with complex background stories. Some of them, however, bring stories that are so rich and popular that they end up getting expanded through novels.

When I first began reading such novels, they weren’t really from video games but from tabletop ones, such as D&D, Warhammer 40k and more. Then came the extremely addictive Warcraft books that I strongly recommend you all to read since they really enable one to fully understand the game’s rather complicated storylines. One of the first ones that I read from Warcraft was Chris Metzen’s Of Blood and Honor (although it was in PDF format) that told the tale of Tirion Fordring and Eitrigg. If you played the WoTLK expansion in World of Warcraft you will probably know

Overwatch Rip-off Has Emerged: What a Horrid Creation

By: DanielCsaki in posted at Jun 16, 2016 4:05 pm

Apparently anything is possible nowadays, as Overwatch was quite disgustingly ripped off through an upcoming mobile game titled Legend of Titan.

There are plenty of things that must have motivated the Chinese developer to create an almost exact clone of Overwatch, but mostly the fact that Overwatch is not F2P and it does not have a mobile version.

Blizzard must be rather shocked to see this awful creation, although this is not the first time that their idea got copied. Hearthstone had a rather similar rip-off that was quickly tackled by Blizzard lawyers.

Legend of Titan not only looks the same but its characters are basically almost identical to those of Overwatch. I am quite convinced that the mobile game will never make it outside of China’s borders and Blizzard will probably do its

Lifeless First Impressions – Let The Slaughter Begin

By: DanielCsaki in posted at Jun 16, 2016 2:57 pm

Lifeless is finally available through a Steam Early Access and I decided to try this promising multiplayer zombie basher.

Lifeless is not just another zombie survival game, of which we have plenty around already. Even though there are plenty of competitors to beat in its genre, Lifeless does pretty well so far. The game’s features did not come as much of a surprise since their gameplay trailers have already revealed plenty of in-game things that await us in Lifeless.

The first thing that caught my eyes were the pretty visuals of the game that are more than satisfying for an online survival game. As the game is in Early Access phase, there is still plenty of development going on, but I didn’t get the feeling that Lifeless was an incomplete project at all. I was thrown into a rather hostile

This is Why Private Servers for MMORPGs Are Popular

By: DanielCsaki in posted at Jun 16, 2016 6:37 am

With all the fuss about Nostalrius going on lately, I decided to do a little personal research about the various private servers for popular MMORPGs, and trust me, it was a rather time-consuming research.

There are probably a lot more private servers around than actual retail ones, which is not pleasing at all, at least for those who wish to remain loyal to developers and publishers. World of Warcraft is probably the most popular target of private server runners, but not all of them are serious enough to get a stable player base as many are simply there to obtain a few bucks from SMS services.

I decided to ask players about their main reasons for playing on unofficial servers instead of retail ones and beyond the usual “because it’s free” responses, many of them felt that those who run pr

Bethesda's Announcements for Fallout 4, Fallout Shelter and Skyrim

By: DanielCsaki in posted at Jun 15, 2016 4:57 am

Bethesda's Game Director Todd Howard had a thing or two to say about the upcoming content for their most popular games. First of all, he wanted to make sure that every player out there knows how thankful Bethesda is to have such great community.

They are all really happy and amazed by all the mods and add-ons players have created, which only inspired them to make something new.

Fallout 4 is getting a completely new building list, from elevators, weapon and armor racks to track kits and conveyor belts. Additionally, you'll be able to build your own Vault the way you like it and will be able to make tests and experiments on dwellers.

Fallout Shelter was a major success on all mobile platforms, with over 50 million downloads. With that in mind, Todd announced a big update that will brin

There Should Be A New Active Time Final Fantasy MMORPG

By: DanielCsaki in posted at Jun 15, 2016 2:02 am

Recently, I decided to do another complete run of the Final Fantasy XIII titles and I must say the Active Time Battle System is such an entertaining feature of the game that it got me wondering how it would work well in an MMO.

There are not many turn-based MMORPGs out there, and although Square Enix’s Active Time Battle system is not exactly the same, I am pretty sure that a brand new online game from the developer with such gameplay would be extremely popular. Atlantica Online is one of the few MMORPGs out there with a strategic turn-based system, but the game is not exactly satisfying visually.

Final Fantasy XIII might just be the last one to have the ATB system as Final Fantasy XV will arrive with real-time action combat. Many of you probably had the chance to play Final Fantasy XIII

MMORPGs Would Work Well With Randomized Endgame Content

By: DanielCsaki in posted at Jun 14, 2016 8:52 am

If you have been playing MMORPGs for the last decade or more, you will know that most MMORPGs come with repetitive content on a daily and weekly basis. In most of them, you get an endgame content which you strive to beat every week to obtain loot and other rewards.

But, what if MMORPGs came with content that is far more random and brings the element of surprise? Wouldn’t it be more realistic if you could face different opponents in raids and dungeons and not the same boss with generic tactics and scenarios? I would personally love to play an MMORPG where every week after the usual reset, I would have to face, along with my team, an unknown foe that is not just another instance of the same content.

Of course, all of this requires a huge effort from developers, but I would already be happy if
