Quote icon When it comes to FPS skills, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is in a class by itself. Due to CS:GO’s complexity and steep learning curve even seasoned FPS veterans can have trouble translating their skills from other games. Let’s take a quick look at some of the unique aiming issues you’ll encounter in CS:GO and how you can get better at pulling off critical head shots. With a high recoil rate and no aim assist, learning to shoot accurately in CS:GO can...

Quote icon If you’re like most gamers, you’ve spent a fair amount of time playing Overwatch. That’s the fun part. The not-fun part is watching Junkrat consistently get Play of the Game over and over again (unless that’s your character choice.) Here’s what you can do to get Play of the Game yourself, or at least avoid getting caught in his RIP-Tire. ##1. Work together. This isn’t Halo. This isn’t Call of Duty. If you go in solo, there won’t be enough...

Quote icon The actual game mechanics may feel a bit shallow to long-time players, but it’s hard not to smile when you spot a Magikarp face-planting on your desk. Scanning the park, I discretely logged into Pokémon Go. Every single person glancing down at their phone was potential competition. I attempted to look nonchalant as I made my way past the playground towards a nearby PokéStop. Was that lady really just walking her dog, or was she after the same Poliwhirl that...

Quote icon Gamers across the world look forward to E3 every year, and 2016 was no different. When sequels to much-beloved titles were announced, players sat in anticipation of what was to come. When expected titles never appeared, they groaned in disappointment. But now the joys and sorrows of E3 have come and gone, the question remains: what are the best titles of E3 2016? In no particular order, they are… Titanfall 2 Titanfall was one of those titles that never reached...

Quote icon Is Overwatch Ready To Be A Competitive ESport? Back in the days of StarCraft and StarCraft II, Blizzard pretty much ruled the competitive gaming scene. Things have changed since then, and the rise of competitive esports has taken the gaming world by storm. Now, with games like Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and League of Legends vying for the top position, can Blizzard’s new role-based shooter, Overwatch, help them take back their title? Blizzard recently reported that Overwatch has already...

Quote icon Virtual reality weaseled its way into the gaming world and staged a coup de grace with all the precision of a special forces strike team. What once existed only on the Enterprise’ Holodeck is now in our homes (in some cases, attached to the walls. Looking at you, Vive.) The rapid advancement of virtual reality technology is allowing gamers to live out fantasies in brand new ways. From the HTC Vive’s full-room motion capturing to the Rift’s more stationary but...

Quote icon Penny Arcade Expo is a mecca for gamers and last month’s PAX East in Boston was no exception. With tons of games to play, panels to watch, and swag to collect, PAX is a required bucket list item for every gamer. This can make snagging tickets difficult. Fortunately, I’ve compiled a quick run-down of some of the best games from PAX East 2016 to keep an eye on. So Many Games! File this under “duh”, but the sheer number of...

Quote icon No one understands the value of time better than gamers. When victory and defeat are separated by a fraction of a second, every bit of speed counts. A gamer’s reaction speed is calculated using a number of different variables including input lag, typing speed, keyboard responsiveness, and internet connection speed. No matter how fast you are, firing at the same time as the ‘host’ player will likely result in death. That said, here are a few interesting statistics. The average...

Quote icon As a kid, I always looked forward to the arrival of the latest gaming magazine in the mail. Before the Internet became the go-to source for news, the printed screenshots and early-access write-ups were the only ways to find out about new games. Those magazines represented excitement and anticipation for the latest and greatest titles. Today, the Internet provides that same thrill. Gamers remain glued to news sites to read about the most exciting titles and decide how much of...

Quote icon Having never been particularly tech savvy, I usually don’t see the allure of shelling out big money when a cheaper option exists. Hence my reliance on membrane keyboards for most of my life. For those not in the know, membrane’s are the cheap keyboards that probably came bundled with your PC. As the name suggests the keys have a thin, flexible membrane underneath them which you smash down to activate the keystroke. For the most part this works out fine,...

Quote icon I pushed my chair back and sighed, the post-game score screen less than different things. A booster program will suppress all background processes not impressive. 7 kills. 15 deaths. I knew the reason. The stuttering of the screen told a story all too familiar for gamers: a system that struggled to keep up with the demands placed on it. Luckily for everyone trying to up their K/D and haul their team to victory, there are several tricks that can improve...

Quote icon I can remember walking through an arcade as a kid and seeing the Sega cabinet for Hologram Time Traveler. I was completely captivated by the holographic renderings which, to me, seemed like the most realistic video game experience in the whole world. I was awestruck by the tiny people parading across the geometric background (because how else could you tell it was holographic?) begging me to play the game. Looking back at the laughably simple graphics and optical illusion cast...
