RoleGenerator was launched in July 2021 oriented to helping dungeon masters and roleplaying game enthusiasts with generating a lot of the day to day minutia of their roleplaying campaigns. As of right now, they have 28 modules divided into two categories: Dungeons & Dragons and generic roleplaying generators. The latter refers to narrative content or content that isn’t specific to any game system and ubiquitous across any type of roleplaying gaming. There are modules focused purely on roleplaying, my favorite being the land and event generator which will take a terrain type and generate flavor text and events that randomly could occur which is great for fleshing out tile by tile what’s there (or even in building rooms for a MUD). Their D&D module generates a shop with inventory, which is useful in building some much needed randomness between shops. Many of the modules include in-depth looks what the generator…

Dead by Daylight is a 4v1 puzzle / horror / pvp / stealth / many other things game in which a killer fights a group of four survivors in an endless loop. The survivors to win have to activate generators to open the exit or find the escape hatch to win while the killer simply needs to either end the game by killing everyone or at least scoring a single kill for a positive message on the game over screen. The best killer to play is the one you love playing the most. They all are effective in doing what they do in some way or another, depending on how skilled you are. Wraith has a boring kit and isn’t all that powerful out of the box, but a well skilled Wraith player is going to do extremely well with it due to the stealth and tracking. You can check…

To save you time, if you define a scam to mean that you give someone money for a service and they do not do that service, then by all means WATA and VGA (Video Game Authority) are not scams. They’re legitimate companies that, if you ship your games to them, will grade your games and send them back based on what services you paid for. Maybe not very quickly, but they do what they promise to do. Now, is video game grading in of itself a scam? A fictional system designed to inflate the prices of retro video games that are becoming more scarce due to the fragile materials used to construct their boxes? That’s a deeper question with some actually quite odd answers. Furthermore, should you invest in graded games? That’s an even tougher question. We will dive into all of them below. If you’re wanting to collect retro…

Industry Idle can be daunting at first, but it’s actually quite easy to get to the start of the mid game or at least towards the end of the early game fast. The early game is absolutely very boring and slow so this guide is going to help power you through the start of the game. The very first thing you should do is find this guide before you started playing, but since that likely hasn’t happened, let’s assume that you’re starting with a fresh city even if you don’t earn much or any swiss bank. How to Play the Game The game is an active idle game, meaning that offline earnings are slim and the game encourages active play. What you’re going to want to do is build a supply chain, ala games like Anno or Factorio, except everything is on a flat 2d game board which honestly is…

If you have fond memories of the good ‘ol days of games from bygone eras then you may want to consider buying games now instead of later, no matter which day you read this. The reason being that physical game media is becoming more rare by the day as games break, get thrown out and are lost to the fates of time. The prices of which are increasing, especially as older games which used cardboard for their cases begin to decay from moisture and age. The community and market for physical video games remained rather stable for a long period of time. Generally speaking, games were worth a percentage of their retail price based on popularity, with more popular games taking a smaller percentage of their retail on third party sites like eBay. For instance, a $49.99 game would likely sale for $35 on eBay used for the longest time,…

Power Wash Simulator is the latest in the niche yet ever growing mainstream of “common job simulation” games except this one is a bit more satisfying than some other titles, for sure. You’re equipped with your trusty power washer and the ability to change nozzles with a flick of your mouse wheel as you clean grim and cut away at graffiti. There is some interesting tricks to speed up your power wash, but one quick disclaimer: Power Wash Simulator is more of a relaxing jaunt through cleaning than an objective based game. You’re under no pressure to clean faster and there really isn’t anything beyond the super obvious “spray it with water” to get the most out of this game. This is a rare title I’d say it’s more fun to be slow and methodical than it would be to power through it, but we want to take a look…

There’s a new trend in the mechanical keyboard world known as pudding keys, which are not taking the niche but far more mainstream than it ever was community by storm, but more by a light drizzle. Pudding keycaps are keycaps that include a semi-transparent base to the key that allows RBG light to shine through, giving you more light for each key and a kind of “pudding” effect to the RBG glow of the keyboard. Steelseries has joined the trend with the release of their PrismCaps, a set of pudding keys that work universally for most mechanical keyboards. I purchased my set at Best Buy for $29.99 and got them in about five days after ordering them, due to no local availability. SteelSeries has no involvement in this review. Installation and First Looks After opening the package, I took the included keycap puller (which is the same as almost all…

Think Contra The game plays in the style of Contra, so if you channel Contra then you should be able to get through a lot of the game pretty well. For instance, move slowly through the city and take on only as many enemies are you’re prepared too. One of the fun things but oft mistakes of playing Contra the first time is running forward full speed. You have to learn the pattern of where the enemies are and how…

We’ve listed out the best weapons in Resident Evil: Village for you to use. We list the knife & handgun at the top, even if they’re the default weapons because the knife costs no ammo and the handgun has probably the most ammo available in the game. Guns are available via the shop and can be found in treasure locations throughout the game. Once you beat the game, depending on the difficulty, when you load back into your save you can buy a new assortment of weapons. We let you know what the best post-game weapon is for achievement hunting. New Game+ gives you the ability to buy a hype gun at the start, but by then you should have a strong feeling for the game. The biggest tip I can give you is to get the Wolfsbane as soon as its available. Most of the game is going to…
