If you've followed our progression guide for Genshin Impact up to Adventure Rank 25, you have reached the point where you can face off against Stormterror on a weekly basis for some pretty sweet rewards. Beating this deadly dragon isn't as easy as it is in the story mission when you got a loaner Venti to dish out damage for you, though, so you'll need to go into the fight with a plan.

Regardless of who is on your adventurer team, Stormterror is beatable, particularly if you read his attack patterns and know how to react to them. See above for a video showing a successful run and read on for some tips on how to do it yourself.

Well, it seems we picked a good time to jump back into Clash Royale. Not only was the game still familiar and easy enough to slip back into, but we got enough lead time to climb the ranks to Legendary Arena just before the game dropped Clan Wars 2 on everyone.

Clan Wars 2 completely reshapes what being in a clan in Clash Royale means and the different gameplay options it grants. It's a big shift for the game as a whole, but it mostly feels like it's one for the better. Read on below to learn about what Clan Wars 2 is all about.

Among Us! Guide - Tips for the uninitiated crew member (or imposter)

Posted by Campbell Bird on September 10th, 2020
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad


Among Us! is one of the biggest suprise hits of the year, most notably because it's a two-year old free-to-play game. I get the appeal, though. In following and writing about games through this pandemic, I've noticed a distinct desire for game play to be more social. I even suggested a few games that accomplish this, though I couldn't have predicted the way droves of people have gravitated to Among Us!

For those unfamiliar, Among Us! is a social deduction multiplayer game where up to 10 players take on the role of either a crew member or an imposter. Crew members need to wander the ship and complete tasks to win the game, but imposters try to muck up those plans by sabotaging the ship and killing other crew members. Along the way, there will be times where the crew convenes and votes on who they think is an imposter, and the player with the most votes gets tossed out the air lock. Crew members win if they successfully complete all their tasks or get rid of all the imposters. Imposters win if they kill the entire crew or successfully sabotage the ship.

The gameplay is not too unlike a lot of popular board games like Secret Hitler or Codenames, but in its digital form it can be a bit daunting, particularly if you haven't played a game like it before. With that in mind, here are a few tips to help you dive into Among Us! and have fun with it.

The best card combos in Clash Royale - 2020 Edition

Posted by Campbell Bird on August 20th, 2020

I haven't played Clash Royale in years, but have recently dipped my toe back into it and am having a lot of fun (despite really souring on Supercell's brand of f2p design).

I'm still getting caught up to speed on the new cards and modes that have been added to the game in my time away, but I've been finding a lot of success with decks that I'm building now, so I thought I'd made an updated list of good card synergies I've found. See below:
