Genshin Impact - Combat Tips

Posted by Campbell Bird on January 5th, 2021


Genshin Impact isn't a terribly difficult game, but its enemies get tougher the longer you play it and as your world level increases. This makes sense as a progression system, but it can also create gnarly difficulty spikes that are hard to overcome, particularly if you play the game without spending any money.

The immediate response to heightened challenge should be to grind out whatever you need to increase your fighting strength, whether that be via weapon enhancements, character ascensions, or talent leveling. Sometimes this grind isn't all that rewarding, though, and it might not fully compensate for all the problems you're facing in combat. With that in mind, we're putting together tips and tricks all focused around Genshin Impact's combat, for those situations where grinding is not enough. Read on to sharpen your combat skills.

Stunt Wheels Will Put an Interesting Spin on Multiplayer Later This Month

Posted by Rob Rich on May 18th, 2015

Stunt Wheels, from Kempt Games, is an interesting-looking combat racer that's doing something interesting with its multiplayer.

As you'd probably expect from a game like this, up to four players can square off on a number of different race tracks and try to blow each other up. What's different is that the Mac release (yes, it's coming out for the Mac - on the same day as the iOS version) will let you and up to three other friends play split-screen, using your iPhones as controllers.

You can get in on the action when Stunt Wheels releases for free on 5/28.

By Jennifer Allen on November 12th, 2014
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: PRETTY BUT PRICEY
World of Warriors looks gorgeous and has a 'gotta catch em all' vibe to it, but its in-app purchases feel restrictive.

Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: EVERYBODY FIGHT THE DINOSAUR

PAX East 2014 - Godfire: Rise of Prometheus is Almost Ready to Hack and Slash its Way to the App Store

Posted by Rob Rich on April 15th, 2014

Godfire: Rise of Prometheus is one gorgeous-looking action/adventure game that’s just about ready to storm the App Store.

You’ll be guiding Prometheus through seven different acts and three possible difficulties, hacking up bad guys the whole way. He’ll also be collecting lots of gear, which is all upgradable and usually includes some sort of special ability such as causing poison damage. It’s not exactly a new idea, but I did think it as pretty cool how the armor sets will actually start to look different as you upgrade them.

I’m also curious to see how players take to the leaderboards. Normally I’m not much of a high score buff, but the leaderboards for Godfire are actually split across all versions of the game. So it’ll be interesting to see how the competition pans out - and will no doubt spark more physical vs. virtual control debates. To which I say “Bring it on!”

Godfire: Rise of Prometheus should be releasing on the App Store in the second Quarter of this year, and it’ll be a premium title.

By Mike Deneen on January 29th, 2014
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: RUGGED BOARD GAME RPG
Sporting great gameplay but sub-par graphics, Road of Kings is a great board game RPG that will allow one to immerse themselves in the age of barbarians.
