Overwatch: A Masterful Blending of Genres that Leaves You Overjoyed

Overwatch has crosshairs in the middle of your screen and your health bar at the bottom left. And the similarity with most other First-Person Shooters (FPS) games end there. Overwatch plays more like a Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA), akin to Dota 2, League of Legends and Heroes Of The Storm instead of your traditional FPS games like Counter-Strike or Battlefield. Each playable hero is unique without customising, and although some very roughly fulfill roles we’re familiar with like tanks, medics and assault, every single one of them is so much more. This game’s hype and the fan anticipation didn’t just put it into the…

The Hearthstone Singapore Major: RNG and Fun

There’s nothing quite like watching high skill players still fall prey to the most insidious of card gaming mechanics: top decking. Though we pitied the Krannich who was knocked out of the Round of 16 with a Wild Pyromancer draw into Equality board clear, we took solace in the fact that no one is safe from the clutches of RNGesus. The Hearthstone Singapore Major took place over 8 to 10 April, starting with a Round Of 256 before it was swiftly chopped down to the Round of 16 then the finals itself of the region’s best players. many who flew to…

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 – A Garden of Variety and Insanity

Garden Warfare 2 by Popcap Games is a whimsical third-person shooter and tower defense game set in the Plants vs. Zombies universe; where unsurprisingly, plants battle against zombies with bizarre weaponry ranging from a butter airstrike to a super-zombie’s beam attack. Yeap, welcome to a very confusing world of colour and surrealism. The sequel to the original Garden Warfare, a multiplayer-only game, GW2 brings it all back with a fun (but short) single-player campaign. Be warned – the writing is very cheesy, and only people with a toddler’s sense of humour find them hilarious. Of course, not only did I feel right…

3 Mobile Games to Play During CNY Visiting

We’ll be upfront: we don’t particularly enjoy visiting. We understand the need for tradition and appreciate the rationale behind it! Keeping in touch with family that you don’t see often is important, as is well-wishing that you may see everyone the following year. We just wish it wasn’t so awkward…and boring. You know what I mean. So as you inevitably slide your phone out as the snack-induced food coma sets in, here’s 3 mobile games (that are not the finger-cramping Candy Crush or the wallet-draining Clash of Clans) the you could play to pass time. They’re not free mobile games but a…

In a world where monsters and colossal beasts roam the forests; where brave souls venture out to see the world, will you be the one who… profits?
