The age old question of what makes a player good is a hard one to define. The only way we have to judge is based off of the stats we can see about our play through the game. Which in some cases, the stats are a bit skewed or non intentionally false. When you have a game that logs hours played, but it bases that stats off the counting the amount of time the game was running. This can trigger a false stat, by counting the time, just from having the game running. I could leave the game running without playing it in the background for hours on end. It would still count this as play time. Which would give me a longer time played than I actually have. This could in turn make it look like I...
Have you ever seen something so cool of your favorite fandom and just had to have it? I know I will see things from time to time and know that I MUST have one. Being a fan of something separates you from the other geeklins! Freak and Pocky are some fellow geeks from Kentucky. Pocky is a poppet master and has made some fantastic pieces. She has made 10 pieces so far and plans on making more and sometime in the future, release custom made poppets! How cool would that be, a poppet that is designed to look like you!

I was excited to see this tournament kick off. PUBG zoomed into the spotlight and became a top game very quick. When I first seen it, I didn't even like it, now I can't pull myself away from it at 3 A.M. Needless to say when I seen a tournament was underway. I knew I had to watch it, because lets face it, I'm not good enough to win it! This isn't to show who won or lost. Who did good or bad. Just the overall feel of it and how I was excited to watch it unfold.


Day 1:
I missed day one sadly. Though I got reports of how Evermore trolled, sorry I mean healed it his way to victory on day one. He won a...
PUBG has done something not many games in early access can do. They have reached #6 on Newzoo's PC Game Tracker. It came in 6th in terms of players playing the title and in play time. Beating out top level games like WoW and GTA V. PUBG finished right below fellow shooter Overwatch, which as the graph below shows. It looks like Overwatch lost some of it's player base to this death match style shooter.

Pitting 100 players against each other in a battle royal style has paid off big in Japan. Where it ranks as the #1 game played. With many sources thinking that all of the players are being lost from Overwatch and moving to PUBG. I know I did. I just started playing this month and already I haven't updated Overwatch since.
PUBG will continue to grow. Newzoo thinks so and with an upcoming esports scene, not to mention upcoming updates. There are a lot of big named streamers helping by streaming the game as well. The game hasn't even been released yet. Though a full release is expected by the end of 2017.

If you are big on computers or as we like to call them "Battlestations", then you might have had the chance to watch Linus over at Linus Tech Tips build a "10 Gamer, 1 Tower PC". If not you should give it a watch. It is something most people can never afford. The price tag was 30 thousand USD! Now I don't know how much money you make, but that is way out of my price range. Luckily for me I recently build a nice battlestation with a Ryzen 7.

I was browsing Reddit and I came across a post where two gaming brothers are very happy with their...

Be safe and have a blast. I hope you have enjoyed endless barbecue and adult beverages (21+)!
I've put a lot of hours into Kenshi. My first upload of a video for this game was 2 years ago. Sadly it is still in beta. Yet a lot has changed and a lot has remained the same. With putting so many hours in, I've learned a lot of tricks and tips that can help you out!

New Game:
As most of you will pick this the first time you play. If not something is wrong. When choosing any of the advanced option. Food works differently. The lower the bar, the higher the rate of hunger. The higher the bar, the lower rate of hunger.

When starting from a majority of the scenarios, the first thing you will need to do is collect money. The easiest way to do this is by mining something. Iron Ore will sell...
Gaming is Life!

All jokes aside. For some people it really is. With the emergence of multiple streaming and video platforms. Gamers are more prepared now than ever before. We don't just play games anymore. Some people actually game for a living. By means of being a Pro Gamer or streaming for fun and having people subscribe and donate.

I tried my hand at streaming and would have continued if the circumstances I ran into didn't stop me dead in my tracks. I still will make a video from time to time though.

Gaming isn't just a Pro scene either. The vast majority of gamers just play for fun. The entertainment value. Playing with a group of friends is fun and exciting in addition to...
I was one of those players who jumped right into competitive as soon as I hit rank 25. I did this because I know how it will work. I'm not saying I'm professional by any means. I'm saying I've been around long enough to see how the regular scene and the competitive scene are two different things.

Lets say I waited. I still wouldn't know the meta for competitive play that well until I actually play competitive mode. The only real disadvantage you will have is not knowing the champions that well. When I started I basically only knew Soldier 76. I hadn't messed with many other champions. I started my competitive SR at 1700+. Winning only 2 of the 10 placements. I quickly fell down to the...
