    DB's Monotype Sandstorm Team - Pokemon (Showdown)

    Oh man, I'm back with another test team. I'm still running my Hail Team (which you can go check out) but I wanted to shake things up and go with the other weather condition I rarely use, Sandstorm. I've never run one Monotype because they tend to have Pok...

    DB's Monotype Hail Team - Pokemon (Showdown)

    Ugh, I have no idea why but I've really gotten into the idea of weather teams. I think it kind of started when I realized how freaking amazing Stoutland can be on a Sandstorm team because he's got Sand Rush (Choice Band + Sand Rush Stoutland is a beast, p...

    Pokemon Sets

    You know  I've been thinking about starting something like this for ages, and I suppose there's no time like the present to give it a bit of a kick up the ass. Now, I'm a huge fan of Pokemon, especially the semi-competitive metagame lately so I spend a fa...

    Pokemon Set: Stakataka

    Man, what a name. Anyway, Stakataka is a new Ultra Beast that's been revealed in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon, it's a Steel/Rock type (urgh) which is usually just about the worst dual-typing in the game, but Stakataka actually manages to make it work really...

    So How Was Shadow of War?

    So how was Middle Earth: Shadow of War?
    On one hand, I've heard that it improves on basically everything from Shadow of Mordor. On the other, it is said that the story is worse and it is a grind. 
    The one thing that I saw that I didn't like is the ...

    PILLARS OF ETERNITY ON CONSOLE

    Just wanted to let y'all know that Pillars of Eternity is now on console (at least the PS4). If I wasn't so stingy, I would definitely pick it up. Maybe one of you guys could try to sell it to me (though I doubt it. College ain't cheap).

    Character Concept: Grim Dawn's Burning Necromancer

    Quick Introduction
    Grim Dawn is a rather interesting ARPG that I've been playing lately, and by that I mean I've put 100 hours into the damn thing in around a week. It's a game that kind of has a lot of history for me, considering it's made by many ...

    Upcoming Projects

    So, I thought I'd try and see about starting up a bit of discussion over here. We had a decent amount over Gwent and there's just been a bit of activity here lately so I figured that it can't hurt. This is a dual discussion, first simply asking if anyone ...

    Destiny Build: The Gunstalker

    So, with Destiny 2 coming out, and the fact that Destiny is by far one my favourite games to play over the last year, I decided to go ahead and start working on another build that I've been playing around with. At first I thought it was going to be kind...

    KOTOR Build: The Scoundrel

    This build is quite similar to my Skillmaster, to the point where I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to post this or not. However, after thinking it over, I decided that there were enough differences between the two to warrant posting this. What are the...

    The Surge is a souls-like game brought to you by the folk who created Lords of the Fallen. In The Surge, we control a set protagonist in a post-apoctapyptic sci-fi universe. There is an innovative loot/combat system that, I think, we have never seen befor...

    Debate, Gameplay vs. Story

    So, I was spurred on by the recent release of Torment: Tides of Numenera, one of the most highly raved about RPG's that I've been keeping half an eye out for recently (the others being Divinity: Original Sin 2 and Pillars of Eternity 2) and while I haven'...

    Your Thoughts Pokemon Sun & Moon

    POTENTIAL SPOILERS WARNING
     
     
    Personally, I think Sun & Moon are the best Pokemon games to date. The game feels fresh because of the removal of gyms and the overall focus on story makes the game feel longer and much more progressive as well ...
