It can be easy to assume LawBreakers to be yet another attempt to break into the hero shooter genre, or to dismiss it as an Overwatch-inspired competitor. Actually, I'd be surprised - and a bit disappointed - if someone were to directly compare this to Overwatch. It's really a different kind of sho... Read More

Well-known gaming brand Razer has launched a new initative that is likely to attract even gamers who haven't paid them much attention before. Dubbed as "Paid to Play", you won't be earning any real cash out of it, but you'll certainly be rewarded for your gaming efforts. Those rewards come in the f... Read More

Last September, Hi-Rez offered a response to the accusations of their free-to-play shooter, Paladins, being an Overwatch clone. Since then they haven't really talked about the matter, until now. At Hi-Rez Expo 2017, GameSpot interviewed several employees to find out how the controversy affected the... Read More

Late last week, Hi-Rez dropped a new patch - OB44 - for their free-to-play hero shooter Paladins that introduced a new currency called Essence and lots of grind, among other things. You can read more about it here, but basically it made getting ability-augmenting loadout cards and the new Legendary... Read More

Prior to the recent Open Beta 44 Patch, the grind in fun and free-to-play hero shooter Paladins was impressively and wonderfully miniscule. Unlocking all of the game's Champions and the ability-augmenting loadout cards I wanted was a pretty pain-free task, and the real-currency-bought Diamonds was ... Read More

It's 2017, which means we have a whole new year's worth of games incoming. There'll be the usual big budget triple-A games, a host of indies, lots of sequels, some new IPs, more free-to-play games and all sorts of other stuff. Only a small percentage of these will appeal to an individual, but even a... Read More

2016 had a bunch of notable AAA game releases and some - on paper at least - were right up my alley. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was chief among them, since I enjoyed Deus Ex: Human Revolution a lot. I was cautiously optimistic about Hitman at first, but got slightly hyped once I saw the size of the P... Read More

*Gigantic was not available in Malaysia at time of writing, so descriptions and opinions on it are based on observations only. It's probably a little ironic when your game is called Gigantic, but the actual juggernaut is not your game but the very competitor you're pitting it against. More than half... Read More

Happy Thanksgiving folks. It is the time again where we show our appreciation and be thankful of everything and everyone around us. As for the video game industry, it is not always “rainbow sunshine” and exciting like the games themselves. But, there are still good news throughout the ye... Read More

Note: I'm not going to make much juxtapositions between this and Overwatch since I haven't played Blizzard's shooter. All I can say is that based on my observations and some comparisons between characters, Paladins just doesn't give me the impression of a complete rip-off or clone of... Read More
