Canada is lucky to be among the top three countries with the biggest Netflix libraries, surpassed only by the US and the UK. That still means there are approximately 200 shows and movies that Canadians can’t watch yet that are available in the US. Not to mention hit sitcoms like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which is only available on Netflix UK or Hulu – a US-only service.

Sponsored Post: Path of Exile Iceshot Deadeye Build Guide

Posted by | News, sponsored | No Comments

The POE Ranger build is one of the most popular Path of Exile classes. And while each of its ascendancies has its own pros and cons, the Deadeye is arguably the best choice if you want a more direct approach to dealing projectile-based damage. Mix that damage with an element that gives much utility and you get the Ice Shot Deadeye. Time to spend those PoE Orbs–it’s time to start building!

Maintaining the Cold Chain

First things first, the Path of Exile tree build. For that, check out https://pastebin.com/4ffJddmr. Now let’s go to the two principles behind the Ice Shot Deadeye: physical to cold conversion and chain. The former is a part of the core skill, Ice Shot. And as the term suggests, it is all about turning your physical damage into cold damage. Aside from the elemental damage, enemies also get chilled, slowing them down in the process.

The other property projectiles have in the game is Chain. If a projectile has this particular property, it will bounce off to a nearby enemy after hitting the first target. This will continue until it hits the number of chains indicated in the weapon or skill that gives this property. When ranked by priority, chain is third, and what precedes it are pierce and fork. This means that if projectiles also get those aforementioned properties, they will behave according to those two properties first until it hits the number of enemies indicated; only then will the projectile stop chaining.

Not Just About Being Cool

With the build hinging on those two things, it’s no surprise that the core skill gem, Ice Shot, is supported by the following gems: Elemental Damage with Attacks, Chain, Added Cold Damage, Increased Critical Strikes, and Damage on Full Life. For even more damage, it has the buffs Herald of Ice, Grace, Hatred, and the Mirage Archer support, as well as the debuffs Assassin’s Mark and Curse on Hit support gem.

On the other hand, for spells related to utility, it has Inspiration, Scourge Arrow, and Immortal Call with Call When Damage Taken and Increased Duration support gems. Lastly, for mobility, it has Blink Arrow.

Geared for the Temperature

Now let’s move on to PoE Bows. The most important one is the Death Opus. Aside from increased physical damage, attack speed, critical strike chance, it also fires two additional arrows. For the body, Hyrri’s Ire is perfect. Aside from the bonuses to dodging, it also gives you more cold damage. Complementing it is the unique quiver Hyrri’s Demise as it gives 1 to 2 cold damage per dexterity as well as bonus attack speed and AoE.

For defensive reasons, use the Starkonja’s Head as it’s got increased global PoE evasion when low on life, evasion rating, and global critical strike chance. As for gloves and boots, pick Rare ones with bonuses to life, elemental resistances, and evasion or you can buy using PoE Currency. For the belt, the Headhunter is a good choice as it gives bonuses to strength, dexterity, life, increased damage to rare monsters, and will even allow you to get that monster’s modifiers.

For accessories, have the Gloomfang as your amulet. It increases elemental damage with attacks, and non-chaos damage as gain chaos damage per chain, but at the cost of losing 10 life for enemies hit by spells, and 22 life for those hit with physical attacks. For your ring, one should be The Taming, which will give you bonus elemental damage and resistances, chance to shock, ignite, and freeze, and extra damage to enemies under those ailments. The other should be a rare ring with bonuses to maximum mana, elemental resistances, elemental damage for skills, and life gained for every enemy hit.

Lastly, for flasks, have a life flask of staunching to prevent or cure bleeding, a quicksilver flask for increased movement speed, and a diamond flask for increased critical rate. For the PoE unique flasks, have Atziri’s Promise for chaos resistance and chaos damage, and Dying Sun for increased fire resistance and bonus projectile.

There you have it, the Path of Exile Iceshot Deadeye! Make sure to try it out because you’re sure to hit the mark with this one. Can someone say…bulls-ice?

Sponsored Post: Fortnite—Mythic Weapons Location Guide

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: 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 farming 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: Best Games Where You Can Play Your Favorite Music by Yourself

Posted by | News | No Comments

Not everybody has the talent to play a guitar, play drums or sing. Sure, if you give it enough time you can learn any skills, but if you’re just a big fan of music who doesn’t have the time to dedicate to learning, it can be overwhelming. Nevertheless, just because you don’t have the time, that shouldn’t mean you can’t enjoy being part of playing music one way or the other, right? Plus, if you’re living in a five-story apartment, you can get neighbor complaints about all the racket happening at your place.

Since we’re music fans as well (who isn’t), we decided to check out mobile apps that allow you to enjoy playing music without requiring you to learn an actual instrument. After a couple of hours of constant searching, we found this list of rhythm games we thought was quite useful.

Best Rhythm Mobile Games

There are some pretty fun games there that allow you to play in the rhythm of some of the most popular songs today. No matter if you enjoy RnB, rap or rock, there’s a game for you so we concluded it would be nice if we review three of them we think are the best.

BEAT FEVER – An Amazing Library of Songs

The moment we read the description of Beat Fever, we knew this game will likely end up on our list. From the moment you start the app, you can see that the developers spent quite some polishing the app. Although the gameplay is your standard hit the buttons in the rhythm of the song type of a game, where Beat Fever truly shines is a gigantic library both of classic and the latest songs. The game does have more from the RnB and rap genre, but there’s something for everybody. But the strongest point is the activity of the app, meaning they constantly add new songs. Every Friday, they have a feature album which is basically a collection of the latest songs they’ve added so this way you always have something new to play. Finally, the community aspect where you can interact with other players gives it even more depth so there’s something to do even when you’re not playing.

One minor thing we noticed is that you spend your energy points a bit too fast. After an hour of playing, we were stranded without any energy to continue playing so our options were either to wait or pay for extra points. This is understandable, but we still feel they could be more generous when it comes to the free-to-play aspect. The game needs to earn money to be able to further develop but it feels a bit underwhelming. Still, it’s a great music game any music fan will surely enjoy.

VOEZ – For Anime Fans

Here’s a music game we didn’t expect to end up on our list. But, we got to say, the game truly caught us off-guard. Besides being just another tapping game, the game has a dedicated storyline you can follow as you play. So instead of randomly finishing one song and starting the next, each level feels like progress in a story that’s quite enchanting and interesting. The selection of songs is great and instead of playing modern tunes, you play dynamic songs that feel like they just jumped out of your favorite anime. A great extra is that you can set up the difficulty of each level such as the speed of the falling notes. This allows people of different skill levels to play so you can enjoy both if you need a challenge or just a relaxing way to pass the time. It’s all up to you.

Although the choice of songs is great, if you’re sticking to the free-to-play model, your options do get kind of limited. It feels more like a demo than an actual game. Once you pay, the doors open to an almost endless amount of music fun, but until that point, you’re stuck with just a couple of songs. But if you’re in rhythm games, we believe this game is worth your money. You definitely won’t be disappointed if you’re looking for a game you plan to play for a longer period of time.

BEAT MP3 – Customize the Songs

Finally, if you don’t like someone else selecting the songs you can play for you, you can always use songs you have in your personal library. Besides this unique feature to upload songs you own, another great element is that each game is randomly generated, meaning even if you play the same song, the rhythm patterns are different, providing a new experience every time. People who need a challenge will love this because you can replay the same song and still feel like you’re playing for the first time. For people who feel that might be too much, don’t worry, you can go easy mode and practice until you make it perfect. There’s also a random event every now and then that provides a bit extra fun, but the focus point is still the ability to upload songs and customize how you want to play.

One slight issue is some songs you upload won’t be playable. It might be due to the quality of the mp3, but we did get an occasional error with some songs we tried to upload. It happened only with a few of them and we were able to play most of the ones we tried. So if you happen to get this error, just try to upload a better file quality or simply move on to your next song.

Conclusion

Rhythm games might not be exactly like playing an actual instrument, but they still provide the excitement of playing one. Situations where you get the perfect score are extremely satisfying and it almost feels like you played your favorite song on a guitar without a single error. So if you don’t have the time to learn an actual instrument, these games are a great alternative.

We hope you’ll enjoy them as much as we did and that they will provide you with hours of a fun experience. Who knows, the games might just motivate you to actually pick up a guitar or piano. We know it had an effect on us. Enjoy.
