Posted by | News, sponsored | No Comments

Looking to get your hands on the new mythic weapons in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2? Here’s where to find them.

The recent introduction of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 brought a whole bunch of interesting changes to the game. As well as new Fortnite items, locations and more, we also saw bosses being brought in to mix things up. This raised the question of what rewards would be granted to players if they manage to defeat them. The good news is, that it isn’t just loot that will be coming your way, but there will also be mythic weapons to be unlocked. In order to do so, you will have to locate the bosses and overcome them to gain these weapons. Here is a short guide on what’s new, and where you can find these Fortnite locations.

New Areas, New Bosses

The Fortnite chapter 2 map comes with five new locations for you to explore. Each of these areas will have a boss for you to face. After doing so, you will not only gain access to secret vaults, but will also gain a mythic weapon which differs depending on the boss that you have defeated. By taking out these guardians, again depending on who you defeat, you will also be completing specific challenges as a bonus. Even if hunting down the mythic weapons isn’t your thing, it is still worth doing so for this reason.

The update is mainly based on a new agent theme, which brings with it a number of gameplay changes. This new season has certainly gone to great lengths to change the landscape of how the game plays, and there is a more PvE feel to it in certain aspects. This is because of the new areas being patrolled by NPCs, who will be guarding the new weapons and mythic loot. There will also be five mini bosses, which you may have seen already in the form of skins if you have the Battle Pass.

There are five total bosses; Brutus, Meowsicles, Skye, TNTina and Midas. Each will be found at different locations on the map, and here is where you can find them.

Brutus

If you are looking for a mythic minigun, then Brutus should be your first stop. Located at the Grotto, this new location can be found by the agency facility. If you head north from here, then you will come across the Grotto, but beware of the NPC enemies that surround the area. You could always take a stealthy approach here, but one slip and its time for battle, so choose your approach wisely.

Midas

Midas, who is rather appropriately name given his lust for all things gold, should be your next port of call. This is because from where Brutus is located, simply head down to the center of the map until you reach the Agency Headquarters. Once you have made your way inside the building, Midas can be found in a number of locations. Rather expectedly, he won’t be difficult to miss, as the gold-laden boss has come prepared. There will also be other players, henchmen and other variables standing in your way, but luckily it doesn’t take much fire power to defeat him. Once you have done so, you will pick up the mythic Drum Gun, which is considered to be the best weapon in the game at this moment in time.

Skye

Back up to the North side is Skye. More specifically, to the northwest in the top corner of the map you will come across a new location known as the Shark. This will be occupied by the boss known as Skye, who will be ready for battle. Once Skye is done with, you will be rewarded with the Scar Assault Rifle, which is a popular choice amongst Fortnite players at the minute.

Meowscles

Ah, Meowscles. This is one of the more divisive bosses that Epic Games has decided to introduce. In my opinion, one of the weirdest concoctions that bosses could offer up in a game such as this, the half-human, half-cat hybrid is something that you are probably going to want to cover in a hail of bullets. Regardless on your feelings about this character, you can find them at the Yacht, surrounded by henchmen in the main area. You will be rewarded with the Peow Peow rifle for your troubles.

TNTina

If you head over to the new area known as the Rig, you will come across TNTina. This will be an area well occupied with enemies for you to deal with. Once you’ve dealt with them and TNTina herself, you’ll want to head to the top of the rig to claim the Boom Bow.

Conclusion

These are the five bosses that you will need to have beaten in order to get the precious mythic Fortnite items and weapons. They aren’t the only reason to explore these areas, with plentiful loot for the taking and exciting new areas to explore. There is a lot to be getting on with as far as Fortnite chapter 2 season 2 is concerned, as Epic Games looks to keep its ever growing fanbase hooked on the battle royale title.

Sponsored Post: Going Back to the Kickoff: WoW Classic’s Vanilla Raids

Posted by | News, sponsored | No Comments

One of the biggest contributions WoW had on the MMORPG genre was how raids work. It’s definitely not the first to have that kind of mechanic, but how we know and understand it today is all thanks to Blizzard’s groundbreaking MMO. Having said all that, let’s take a look back at some tidbits of info about how raiding was like the good old  WoW Classic gold vanilla days.

The Molten Crater

Developing content for MMO, be it WoW Dungeons or WoW Classic raids, can take at least a month or two. This considerably long period is spent to make sure that the raid instance not only works, but is also presentable. Molten Crater, on the other hand, was only developed in a week. At first, it was just a rumor that circulated among the player base, until it was later on confirmed by the devs. Thankfully, such a revelation didn’t cause much backlash, and probably even helped cement its status as one of the game’s more popular raid instances in vanilla WoW.

Looking back, the rather lackluster interior was a telltale sign of its rushed conception. Still, it’s already quite the memorable icon that players remember with much fondness.

C’Thun and Ahn’Qiraj

While we only had the Burning Legion as these extraordinary powerful and otherworldly beings in Warcraft III, its genre-defining MMO sequel introduced the Old Gods. Powerful entities that shape the affairs of Azeroth and beyond, it makes perfect sense that they should be featured in a raid or two.

In the more recent expansions, players saw more and more of them. In the Vanilla days, however, they didn’t have a huge role, and were only referenced a few times. And even if you arrange WoW dungeons by level, you won’t find much talk about them. But despite the fact that only one was mentioned in that particular era, it was a hugely important Old God: C’Thun. After all, he is not only the final boss of the Temple of Ahn’Qiraj, he was also regarded as the main antagonist of Classic WoW–and for good reason!

Karazhan

It’s not uncommon in games to have a supposedly inaccessible area that is either scrapped or future content that is still in its planning stages but already has traces in the game. For Karazhan, it was the latter.

Despite being slated for release in The Burning Crusade, the game’s first expansion, a section of the raid instance was added into Azeroth a little bit early—so much so that players managed to check it out before it was officially rolled in. They didn’t see much aside from dark stone halls, but it’s still very much a cool thing to see a place in the game before its official launch. Surely, not a lot of players, even those that have been playing since Day 1, can say the same.

Tol Barad

While Karazhan was literally ahead of its time, Tol Barad was the complete opposite, as it’s meant to be a part of the game since the WoW Vanilla release date. The idea behind this island prison is that it’s connected to Stormgarde and the first war. Gameplay-wise, it was supposed to be a battleground that would be unlocked as though it were an instance. This, however, has been changed. It’s for the better, and people are pleased with the Tol Barad that they got, but people will always wonder about the one they could have gotten.

Naxxramas

Last yet certainly not least is Naxxramas. It’s only fitting for it to be mentioned here, as it’s the last of the WoW raids slated for WoW vanilla. A giant necropolis that flies above the Plaguelands, it was a difficult raid that tested players. Unfortunately, because of how close its release is to the first expansion, it was clearly overshadowed. Thankfully, it became more popular in the long run, but it would’ve been cool if it got the recognition it deserves right at the get-go.

Raids have played a significant part in WoW players’ lives, so they very much deserve the look back. But don’t be content with that. Go try them out for yourself in WoW Classic!

Sponsored Post: An In-Depth Look at the Suspension of Bounty Hunter in OSRS

Posted by | News, sponsored | No Comments

“It’s time to make a change.” This was the statement made by Jagex late January 2020 after shutting down access to the Bounty Hunter worlds. There’s no news yet regarding when they’ll be opening its doors once again, but they did tell players to not panic and they were merely trying to improve upon this section of Old School RuneScape. Rather than move on from one update to the next, Jagex plans to make the PvP in OSRS a livelier activity by thinking of a long term solution for it.

So, what exactly is Bounty Hunter? And what was the underlying problem that seems to have involved OSRS gold? Find out as we talk about it in full detail!

What is Bounty Hunter?

Bounty Hunter is essentially a minigame that involves PK-ing (Player Killing) in the Wilderness. It was released back in December 2007 during the early years of OSRS and caused quite a commotion among players as it was introduced as a substitute for PvP—which was removed back then. However, Jagex ultimately changed their minds and revised Bounty Hunter to be a single-player activity instead of a PvP activity in 2014.

The goal of Bounty Hunter is to kill as many targets as you can to earn bounty points and upgrade your emblems. To earn bounty points, there are bounty tasks that you can try to complete. Unlike other missions or quests that don’t have time limits, you will only have 20 minutes to complete each task. 10 bounty points will be awarded per completed task. Furthermore, if you want to join in on the fun, you’ll need a combat level of at least 50 before you can receive these bounty tasks.

Once you’ve faced your target, you also have the chance of upgrading your mysterious emblem as well (provided that you’ll win the fight of course). If you don’t have a mysterious emblem yet, you can buy one from the Emblem Trader who runs the Bounty Hunter Shop. The emblem will automatically upgrade itself to the next tier as long as the target that you’ve killed off also has an emblem that’s the same tier as yours or higher. As you climb the tiers with your emblem, its value also rises. A tier 10 emblem is currently valued to be worth 5,000,000 bounty points!

What are Bounty Points?

Bounty points are the currency used for the Bounty Hunter minigame. You can exchange your high tier emblems for these points and use them to purchase goods from the Emblem Trader. Some of these items include a ward upgrade, kit, a clue box, and Ancient Magicks magic tablets. Almost all of the items being sold in the Bounty Hunter Shop can be traded as well, with the exception of the hunter’s honor and rune pouch.

So What’s the Problem with Bounty Hunter?

As you know, gold farming has been a common way for players to earn OSRS gold in the game. However, Bounty Hunter has been susceptible to people that abuse this minigame. There’s no problem with the minigame in general. There is, however, a problem with the players who exploit this mechanic. While it may not look like much for people who just casually play OSRS, it could soon affect the in-game economy and take a turn for the worse.

We have our fingers crossed as we’re sure that Jagex will be able to find a way to revamp the PvP in OSRS as well as the Bounty Hunter. Hopefully, this sends a message to those who are abusing the mini game for OSRS gold. What do you think of the temporary suspension of Bounty Hunter? Is it really a problem that warrants Jagex stepping in? Let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment below!

SPONSORED POST: 4 Classic Video Games That Are Still Loads of Fun

Posted by | News, sponsored | No Comments

In some ways classic video games don’t hold a candle to their modern counterparts due to the hyper-realistic graphics, incredibly accurate physics, and completely immersive environments. However, despite that, classic games can still be loads of fun, and some can even occupy hours of your time.

If you’d like to know some of the best classic video games that you should try, there are a few that are should be a very enjoyable challenge:

  • Pacman: In Pacman you control the ‘Pacman’ character and navigate it through a maze to eat dots while avoiding the ghosts that spawn. The aim of the game is to clear all the dots, and if you eat large flashing dots (i.e. power pellets) you can eat the ghosts too in order to obtain bonus points. The original version of Pacman was released in the 1980s as an arcade game, but numerous variants have been published over the years for PCs and other consoles. If you want you can easily find the classic version of Pacman as a web game.
  • Tetris: As one of the most popular games of all time, Tetris and its multi-colored blocks are instantly recognizable. The gameplay is focused on creating horizontal lines of blocks by controlling the blocks as they descend and rotating them to fit. Over the years there have been many versions of Tetris, some of which have even introduced newer rules and other gameplay elements. However the core of the game remains unchanged, and classic Tetris can still be found on any platform or as a web game.
  • Bubble Shooter: Technically Bubble Shooter is a clone of Puzzle Bobble, though it is definitely unique in its own way. It is based on the premise of forming group of 3 or more bubbles with the same color by shooting bubbles to specific locations. To win you need to clear the field of all bubbles. Different versions of Bubble Shooter have slightly different gameplay elements, game modes, and scoring systems. To play the classic version you can visit Bubbleshooter.net.
  • Space Invaders: Up to this very day Space Invaders is regarded as one of the most influential video games of all time. It is essentially a fixed shooter that allows you to control a laser cannon and move it horizontally at the bottom of your screen while shooting to destroy aliens. Due to its popularity there have been several variants and spin-offs of Space Invaders, but the original is still the most iconic by far. It is easily available nowadays via remastered collections, or as a web game.

If you are a child of the 80s or early 90s, odds are you may have already played some of these games, or at very least may recognize them. However if you have never tried them in the past, you should definitely give them a go – so you can see firsthand just how much fun they can be.

Make no mistake as dated as these games may be they are still loads of fun, and you may end up hooked in no time.

Sponsored Post: A Basic Guide to Backgammon

Posted by | News, sponsored | No Comments

The game of backgammon is over 5,000 years old, which makes it one of the oldest board games in history. It was first created by people living in the Middle East at the time, but today it’s played all over the world.

If you ever saw what a backgammon game looks like, you might have been confused as to what the rules are. In fact, it’s hard to tell what the rules are just by looking at how the game’s played. But don’t worry—you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out. Nevertheless, you will need some sort of a tutorial to understand the basics of backgammon, and that’s where we come in.

Also, if you don’t own a backgammon board, you can play the best free backgammon game online instead. But first, you should read the following guidelines carefully and learn how to play backgammon with your friends. Let’s start!

The Setup

Backgammon is a two-player game played on a board containing 24 narrow triangles called “points”. The points are separated into four quadrants of six, with a bar in the middle.

Each player starts with 15 checkers. Checkers come in two different colors–usually, one player has white and the other one has black. One player moves his or her pieces in a clockwise direction while the other player starting on the opposite side of the board moves counterclockwise.

The quadrant that you will be moving towards is called your home board (bottom right or bottom left depending on your position), and the board adjacent to it is your outer board.

In order to start, each player will need to put all of his or her checkers on the board. Start by putting five checkers on your 6th point, three checkers on your 8th point, five checkers on your 13th point, and then put your last two checkers on your 24th point. The opponent will put their checkers in an exact mirror image of yours.

To learn more about how the points are numbered, take a look at this awesome beginner backgammon tutorial.

Moving the Checkers

Each player receives two regular dice with six sides that he or she throws to indicate the moving of the pieces. So, for example, if you roll a four and a two, you will get to move any of your checkers for a total of six times. You can move one checker six times, or you can move one checker four times and another one twice. Remember that you can only move the checkers in one previously determined direction towards your home board. The goal is to reach the end of your home board with all 15 pieces.

To indicate who starts first, both players will throw dice at the same time. Whichever player gets the higher number, he or she moves first by a total number of two dice combined. For example, if you get a three and your opponent rolls only a one, you will get to move your pieces three times and then once more. If both players roll the same number, the throwing of the dice repeats.

You can land a checker on any point that is empty or that has only one of the opponent’s pieces. You can’t land your piece onto a point that has two or more opponent’s checkers.

If you land a double, let’s say double twos, the total number of your moves will double as well, so you will get eight moves instead of four in this case.

Hitting Opponents and Bearing Off

If you land on a point where the opponent only has one checker, you will send that checker to the bar. The opponent will then have to roll the dice to put his piece on the bar back into the game, beginning from his starting point. The opponent cannot re-enter the game unless he or she rolls the number that puts them on a point where they can actually land —they cannot land on points where you have two or more pieces at a given time.

As we mentioned before, the goal of a backgammon game is to finish the board with all of your pieces. Once you get near the end, you will hope to roll a number that exceeds the last point. You can only finish with one piece at a time and only if all of your pieces are in your home board. That is called bearing off.

Whichever player removes all of his or her checkers first wins the game.
