Genshin Impact - Everything you need to know about Theater Mechanicus

Posted by Campbell Bird on February 12th, 2021

It's Lantern Rite season in Genshin Impact! The latest update to the game adds a whole bunch of new stuff to see and do to commemorate this in-game holiday, which is presumably a reflection of Chinese New Year. Celebrated primarily in Liyue Harbor, the bustling merchant city has transformed into a festive market where merchants sell their wares to raise funds for the construction of Xiao Lanterns.

As part of this celebration, game designer Ruijin has set up her game, Theater Mechanicus, in the harbor, which you can spend Xiao Lanterns to play to earn sweet rewards while playing a cool tower defense mode in the process. Check out some video above to see how the mode works, and read on below to learn what you should know about Theater Mechanicus, including some tips on how to make you a Mechanicus Master.

The end game of Genshin Impact largely revolves around spending resin to take on world bosses and clear domain challenges. These fights grant amazing rewards like rare artifacts and ascension materials for weapons and adventurers, but obviously only if you're up for the challenge.

This guide will teach you how to beat the Anemo Hypostasis, a swirling prism of wind energy tucked away in the Stormbearer Mountains. Defeating the Anemo Hypostasis should be a top priority if you're looking to build up adventurers like Jean, Venti, or the impending Xiao. Luckily, this boss isn't all too hard, provided you know what to look for from this encounter.

Genshin Impact - Progression Guide (Adventure Ranks 45-50)

Posted by Campbell Bird on January 25th, 2021

Chances are, if you've made it to Adventure Rank 45 in Genshin Impact, you don't necessarily need a guide on what to do. It's clear you've got a good enough adventurer team, know the general grind, and have mopped up just about every story quest you can get your hands on.

If this doesn't sound like you, maybe you should back up and read our previous progression guides before hopping into this one. For this entry in our Genshin Impact Adventurer's Guide, we'll be outlining some of the finer points of the game that we wish we knew about earlier so as to ease resource management concerns that come up in this endgame state. Read on below to learn more.

Genshin Impact Progression Guide - Late-Game (Adventure Ranks 35-45)

Posted by Campbell Bird on December 3rd, 2020

As you get deeper and deeper into Genshin Impact, the more you have to prepare and think about what your next moves are in terms of progression, particularly if you're not spending money on the game. As your world level increases, so does the toughness of the enemies you face, and so you'll need to make sure you can still take them down, whether that's with friends or by yourself.

At Adventure Rank 35, the game should still be pretty manageable in terms of difficulty no matter what characters you are using, which makes it a perfect time to start preparing for World Level 6 and getting ever closer to maxing out your characters. Read on below to figure out the best way to do this.

The end game of Genshin Impact largely revolves around spending resin to take on world bosses and clear domain challenges. These fights grant amazing rewards like rare artifacts and ascension materials for weapons and adventurers, but obviously only if you're up for the challenge.

This guide will teach you how to beat the Geo Hypostasis, a geometric cube that hangs out on a remote island in the Guyun Stone Forest to the east of Liyue Harbor. Defeating the Geo Hypostasis should be a top priority if you rely on Geo adventurers like Ningguang or Zhongli to fill out your squad. Luckily, it's totally possible to beat this boss with little to no problem, even if you're underleveled. Read on below to find out how.

Bad North: Jotunn Edition guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 23rd, 2019

Bad North: Jotunn Edition can be cruel. You never quite know where your next attack is going to come from, and--even if you’re prepared for it--things might just not go your way.

This doesn't mean the game is random, but it does have a peculiar imprecision to it that you definitely have to get used to. If you find yourself struggling to make adjustments so you can finish a run successfully in this game, keep these tips in mind.

Void Tyrant guide - General tips and tricks for new players

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 28th, 2019

Void Tyrant is a card-based dungeon-crawler that doesn’t fit in the mold of other games in the genre. Between the Blackjack-style combat and strange gear system alone, you’re left to your own devices to figure out how best to use everything to your advantage to go on a deep run.

It doesn’t have to be this way though! I’ve been playing Void Tyrant constantly both before and after release. Here are some good general tips I’ve learned after many, many hours with the game:

Slow down

Battles can take a long time in Void Tyrant. Even with all the animation and dialogue skip options turned on, everything in the game can feel like it plods along. This is especially true if you’re in a rush to get back to where you died on your last run. Because of this, it can be tempting to try and minimize combat time by tapping quickly through turns.

Avoid doing this at all costs! It’s so easy to make a careless mistake if you’re just trying to rush things along, and a single bad turn can end your run. Always check to see what your opponent has, what cards you can potentially play, and what you can afford to discard before deciding to hit or stand. Taking the time to do this will let you make much better decisions and—believe it or not—allow you to progress more efficiently.

Use ‘em if you’ve got ‘em

On any given run in Void Tyrant, you’ll likely get some consumable cards added to your deck. These special cards usually do not cost much EP to play, with the downside being they disappear from your deck when you use them.

You may be tempted to save and use these cards for when they could really make a difference (i.e. a boss fight), but that is potentially dangerous. As great as consumable cards are, they bloat your deck and make it less consistent. They could even lead to your downfall if you just hang on to too many of them for too long. Instead, just use consumables whenever they seem helpful, and your deck will stay lean and mean (not to mention that you'll also be alive).

Managing EP

Your energy—or EP—in Void Tyrant is perhaps the most valuable resource you have. It lets you pick and play all kinds of cards that can let you overcome the variability of the base combat system.

You should use this resouce as early and often as it is available, but you also shouldn’t squander it. This is to say you should never try to be “saving” EP, but you also should only spend it on cards that will actually give you an advantage in the moment. This might mean discarding more than just the one free discard you get on a turn to find exactly what you’re looking for.

If you do this, you’ll win a lot more rounds of combat, which restores your EP meter with every hit. Whenever things turn south, always remember you can play conservatively and defend against attacks, which allows you to earn back a good chunk of 10 EP.

Infectonator 3: Apocalypse guide - Tips and tricks for infection initiates

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 5th, 2019

When I first booted up Infectonator 3: Apocalypse, I was surprised by the sheer amount of stuff going on it. From crafting and leveling zombies to the intricacies of managing a wandering horde of braindead zombies, it can be overwhelming.

This is especially true since you're supposed to manage all this stuff while humanity is racing toward a cure to end your entire run, which would make you have to start the whole game all over again. If you're a newcomer to the Infectonator games, check out this handy little guide to help you in your efforts to infect the planet.

Spellsword Cards: Demontide guide - Tips and tricks for Campaign Mode

Posted by Campbell Bird on April 11th, 2019

Spellsword Cards: Demontide is a wonderful little single-player card game, but it can also be quite unforgiving. Parts of it definitely look and feel like Hearthstone, but you can’t just play this game like its your favorite collectible card game (CCG) and expect to do well.

Specifically, Demontide’s Campaign Mode will punish you heartily unless you learn a few key lessons that the game unfortunately doesn’t do a great job of teaching you. Luckily, I’ve put in many hours into the game as of this writing and can step in to help any card battler that’s been banging their head against Demontide’s tough Campaign with some tips. See below:
