Osseous has a bone to pick with you as the latest Rex Matriarch lands in Runescape

Posted by Shaun Walton on May 29th, 2024

We recently quelled the immense threat brought about by Zemouregal and the giant dragon Vorkath in Runescape, and you might think that earnt adventurers a little break, but no. Instead, Jagex has decided it is time to face off against an equally big and deadly Dinosaur in their latest update to the classic RPG.

You might remember adventuring to Anachronia and then stumbling into a certain lair, and if you do, you were probably immediately eaten by the trio of Rex Matriarchs; Orikalka, Rathis, and Pthentraken. Well, soon you will be meeting a forth, Osseous, but with a simple twist, it is already dead.

Posted by Shaun Walton on May 24th, 2024

One of the most fun parts of the Monster Hunter franchise, to me at least, is designing that perfect armour set to give you that optimal skill set you’ve been dreaming of. Unfortunately, you sometimes had to sacrifice fashion, but that won’t be a problem in Monster Hunter Now, thanks to the latest free update introducing Driftsmelting.

Driftsmelting brings with it a new menu to power up your armour. By collecting and using Drifstones, you are able to imbue your gear with massive new skills, up to a total of ten per piece.

Posted by Shaun Walton on May 21st, 2024

After vanquishing yet another threat and adding a fine hat to their wardrobe, you’d think the crew of the Astral Express would be able to kick back after their adventures in Penacony. Clearly not though, as HoYo has announced the next leg of the Honkai: Star Rail World Tour 2024, and they are going far.

Dragons rein supreme in Pokemon Unite as the Dragon Carnival kicks off

Posted by Shaun Walton on May 20th, 2024

If you were looking for the strongest type in Pokemon and asked the fanbase, I would wager most people's thoughts would turn to Dragon. They hit hard, are often powerful, and get used by some of the toughest trainers. Pokemon Unite is honouring these characters with the Dragon Carnival event.

Lasting until June 11th, so plenty of time to get involved, the Dragon Carnival is packed full of content to enjoy. There is a new quick battle to get involved with, a challenge centred over Raihan, the Hammerlocke Gym Leader, and the opportunity to grab yourself a license for one of six Dragons.

Players can take a peek into the design of Diablo Immortal's new class ahead of its release this month

Posted by Shaun Walton on May 17th, 2024

It doesn’t matter how much effort developers put into their classes, or how many special little mechanics there are; if there is one that wields two blades, I’m ignoring everything else. Diablo Immortal recently announced such a class in the shape of the Tempest, and now, we have been treated to a making-of-documentary.

Scheduled to arrive on May 23rd, The Tempest is a warrior-priest who has mastered the winds and the waters, much like its namesake. It is a highly mobile class that deals quick strikes with its two weapons, ranged attacks with knife-tipped whips, and the frankly awesome-sounding Zephyr summons.

Android users have a new option in the controller market as GameSir release the X4 Aileron

Posted by Shaun Walton on May 16th, 2024

When you are in the thick of a firefight or trying to pull off a mid-combat parkour flip through a squad of foes, sometimes touchscreen control just won’t do it for you. For those intense sessions, you could benefit from a good mobile controller, and so the rather fancy developers at GameSir have unveiled the X4 Aileron.

Despite sounding like something you would expect a fighter pilot to be zipping around in, the X4 Aileron is a rather nifty-sounding Bluetooth controller that promises an ultra-responsive connection. Whilst you can get a plug-in controller for that guaranteed speed, GameSir says that their controller features low-latency play.

Jagex releases the first of three original stories set within the world of Runescape

Posted by Shaun Walton on May 15th, 2024

At this point, I am sure everyone has heard of Runescape, and or Runescape Classic. It has been going strong for 23 years, with constant content and story coming out. Luckily for fans of the game, or fantasy in general, Jagex has announced an expansion to Gielinor’s lore, in the form of a new fantasy novel; Runescape: The Gift of Guthix.

The first of a planned trilogy, The Gift of Guthix is a tale of civil war, the origin of magic, and the less-than-successful Fremennik Great Invasion. Lord Raddallin is gathering an army of tribes to his cause, helped by his advisors comprised of Black and White knights, all cautious of one another.

Ride into the zombie apocalypse in style with Earn to Die Rogue

Posted by Shaun Walton on May 10th, 2024

Back in the good old days of Flash games, there were a few staples; Happy Wheels, Stick RPG, and of course the apocalyptic driver Earn to Die. Fans of the running over zombies simulator can rejoice, as the sequel to the legendary game, Earn to Die Rogue, has launched on mobile with some nice upgrades.

Sticking true to its roots, Rogue brings back the zombie hit-and-run fun for the first time since 2015, having rocketed to the number one spot on the iOS paid games charts in 135 countries. It also notched up over 160 million downloads on Google Play as a free-to-play title, and I am sure we can expect similar numbers again.
