Limited Run Games is a publisher of limited runs of physical games. There are other outlets, like Strictly Limited, that do a similar thing but Limited Run Games is what I would consider the industry leader in this very interesting world of limited video game releases. Their popularity recently has continued to only soar as collectors attempt to collect a wide range of their products, from the games they love to those who just love to collect every release. To be completely candid, I recently was looking at MidBoss’s Japanese release of the 2064 collector’s edition and fell immediately in love with the artwork and everything about it. Obtaining the previous US release led me down a long and wild adventure into a niche market that’s exploding in popularity and has a lot of pieces to untangle. The Principles of False Scarcity & A Limited History of Collector’s Editions If…

Creeper World 4 is the latest installment in a long running series by Knuckle Cracker. It takes the traditionally “2D” top down fluid simulation and turns it into 3D which is actually pretty nice. I absolutely love the game and think it’s an improvement kind of over CW3, but that’s not what we are here for. We are here for tips! Let’s begin. Tips & Tricks Consider power first before everything else. You need energy to build things and power weapons. All of the fun tools that help you push require other resources, but surviving requires just power and you need to establish a power grid first.Sometimes its not cost effective to build a tower when there is plenty of energy coverage. You have to wait to earn the energy back for creating it.Mortars are very powerful for dispersing creepers and only cost energy. Cannons are great at getting rid…

So recently across social media you can find the following post from the official Riot and League of Legend’s accounts: https://twitter.com/LeagueOfLegends/status/1384310848584175619 Is it a new game? Is it new skins in the game? Does it have something to do with Wild Rift? Well the answer is actually quite simpler than it appears. #leagueoflegendsut is an upcoming clothing collab with a popular clothing brand and the image showcases a likely sample of one of the shirts. What Exactly Does LeagueofLegendsUT mean? Uniqlo is the clothing brand that they’re collaborating with. You can see their logo on the top left of the photo and the shirt is likely a K/D/A collab that’s coming soon with Uniqlo. Previous LoL collabs included fashion house Louis Vuitton. Therefore it’s no surprise that they’re collabing with another major clothing brand for their K/D/A brand. So then the question is what does the UT stand for? Well…

We rank all champions for League of Legends: Wild Rift into two tier lists. First is the best champions in the game, period and the second is the best champion for the five main roles: top, bottom (ADC), middle, support and jungle. In coming up with our tier list, we weigh the common player solo queuing over group play. We also focus our S tier on the best hero to pick, regardless of other choices, based on the current meta to make it easy to know which character you can choose and know you’ll do a great job in that role with its specific tool kit. At the end of the tier list we have the best devices to play LoL: Wild Rift on. These are going to likely be what you expect: the flagships for the top mobile brands Apple and Samsung, but we have some tips for some…

If you’re looking to play some of the more competitive online games on your phone or tablet you’re going to want to know what the best equipment is. In the below tier list we break things down into the best overall phone / tablets and then the best budget (inexpensive) phones and tablets for gaming. There’s a lot in the market in regards to budget phones so something you will want to avoid is a lot of phones that look too good to be true. Generally in the $50 to $100 category, these phones will do email and phone calls generally alright. Their speakerphones are often terrible and running games will be kind of hard unless they’re extremely simple (like Angry Birds simple). The Best Apple Gaming Phone This answer is right now and has been for the general history of the iPhone: the flagship iPhone. The current flagship is…

Java Edition 1.17 added in raw metals into Minecraft. This is a major change to various versions, metal blocks would drop metal blocks, not raw ore. The Fortune and Silk Touch enchantments now work on the Iron, Copper and Gold blocks which drop ore now instead of the blocks themselves. This ore can be smelted with one fuel and one ore to make one ingot, just as you can with the blocks. That means with Fortune III you can get up to 4 (the average being 2.2) ores per metal block. Which is a nice change as it makes farming these materials a lot easier compared to before. So when you destroy an Iron, Copper or Gold block (or their deepslate variants) without Silk Touch, you’ll get something called “Raw Iron” or “Raw Copper” or “Raw Gold.” It works the same way as the blocks in crafting, but of course…

When we consider the power of gaming one of the things we don’t consider often is its ability to be extremely inclusive and allow for a wide swath of people from the full spectrum of socioeconomic statuses to enter into a video gaming career. Due to the nonstandard approach and ease of entry into the streaming space and just playing, becoming a professional eSports player is “easier” than ever. “Easier” of course being in quotations because it’s not “easy” as in you can just start day one and begin as a professional eSports player. No, the “easy” part is the materials for getting started. The rest of it is up to the skills of a player. You, your child or your young adult may be interested in being an eSports professional. Wearing a jersey, being on stage in front of a large crowd (or viewers at home) and basking in…

The SMITE Arena is the 5 v 5 single lane brawl, except unlike most ARAM modes you can pick any hero and build any team. It’s a ton of fun because it removes the jungle, multiple lanes and other mechanics and brings it down to an all out brawl of the gods in an arena with the only other mechanic being buffs. This guide will explain how the mode works and how you can play smart to pull ahead and win. Titan Forged Studios (Hi-Rez) have a good tutorial video that explains the basics (above) but we go a bit more in detail. Check out our SMITE Tier List to help pick the best gods to win. How The Game Mode Works So each side picks five heroes. The game will generally suggest a mix of tanks and magic/physical damage, but you can configure your team however you want. Once…
