In order to expand global projects, Korean gaming giant Nexon has announced that they will cooperate with Carbon Eyed to publish three mobile games in global market. Founded in 2014 by the former CEO of Eyedentity Games, Carbon Eyed is a new games development studio which is famous for its three flagship titles namely Knights Fall, Tiny Fall and Gigant Shock.
Out of the three titles, the one really caught my eye was Gigant Shock. Gigant Shock is a 3D side scroller MMORPG which allows you to control four distinctive heroes to fight against massive gigantic dreadful bosses. In order to let players focus more on the fight, Carbon Eyed also drop auto battle system and movement controls. Besides, you can also team up with 2 of your friends to have a co-op dungeon experience in this game.
Knights Fall is a top down strategy siege game in which players have to make full use of different weapons and terrain to complete objectives. There are more than 100 weapons for players to choose from, such as cannon, flame thrower, stone thrower and more. Moreover, the game also features destructible items and physical engine, allowing players to have epic siege fight on your phone.
Tiny Fall is quite similar to Knights Fall in gameplay, but Tiny Fall is more casual and features animated characters from fairy tales like Alice in Wonderland, The Snow Queen and Hansel and Gretel.
Right now, Knights Fall has already been launched on App Store and Google Play in Korea, and Nexon will publish all three game in global market when it is the right time.
Dwarves are physically powerful, higher HP, and a unique combat style. There are 3 base classes: Warrior, Rogue, and Mage, each of which can advance to one of the 3 subclasses. If you play Dwarf, you need to know which subclass fits you best.
How to play: Guardian has the best defense and highest HP, at the cost of attack power and critical hit rate and critical hit damage. Although Guardian has the lowest DPS, he's the toughest one to kill. If you want to play safe and slow, this is the best choice.
How to play: Slow in move & attack speed but deadly in every single blow to the enemy, Slayer can charge to the enemy to get engaged fast. That's why Slayer often goes into the middle of the battlefield. When the particular passive ability is triggered, Slayer can go into rage form by using the "Angry Dwarf" ability.
How to play: Scavenger can confuse enemies with his combat abilities. Although Dwarves aren't agile themselves, but Scavenger's attack can lower the enemy's accuracy and it's actually an excellent support to the party. Scavenger's playstyle goes against the trait of Dwarf, but his "Search" ability boost the gold gain for the party and it's a value no other class can provide.
How to play: Dwarf's low attack power trait determines that a War Ranger can never compare with other Rogue classes. But the high HP and abilities deal damage over time allow War Ranger to play patiently even against high burst DPS.
How to play: Quarrel Wizard isn't afraid of close quarter combat thanks to Dwarf's high defense and HP. You can play it like a melee Mage and you can expect effective farming with the ability to engage in both ranged and close combat. It's worth mentioning that Quarrel Wizard casts spell slowly but can stun the enemies. "Practice makes perfect" is a good advice for Quarrel Wizard player.
How to play: Sage is an all-round class that can heal, provide buff and debuff, and deal damage. It's a very friendly class to new player but the disadvantage is also obvious, that none of the abilities is powerful enough to handle tough enemies. Still as Sage progresses towards the end-game, it will be a powerful class.
One day in the mysterious land, the fierce battle accidentally broke an ancient seal. After an earthquake a hidden place with roars and ruins appeared from the underground. Will it be the rain moistening the dry land or a demons’ trap Let’s check the Buried Treasures hidden in the ancient ruins:

The new version Final Clash: Buried Treasures will be online in early June with multiple in-game and offline events, please subscribe to Final Clash Official Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/finalclashpoppace/) or join in Discord (https://discord.gg/nPpBuU3) for latest news and events!
Dark and Light associate producer Horsejoke has revealed new gameplay details about the Elementals, the physical embodiments of concentrated elemental magic. There are several types of elemental magic: Fire, Earth, Air, Water, Dark, and Light magic, and these elementals come into the forms of Wind Elemental, Fire Elemental, Dark Elemental, and other Elementals.
Experienced players with the right skills and magic can kill the Elementals and harvest them for powerful magical cores. "These cores can be used as crafting reagents for high-level items and spells, or, once enough cores have been collected, they can be used to summon a tamed Elemental of your very own," says Horsejoke.

I will do my best to make the Mystic Class as easily understandable during the course of this guide. Please take note that on each stages, i will introduce the Mystic Skills and many more features about the class.
~Mystic, the NEWBIE~
At LEVEL 1 there are 2 skills available to your disposal, the spammable normal magic attack/heal and Mystic Galaxy. Please take note that BOTH SKILLS CAN BE USED TO CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR ENEMIES AND TO HEAL YOU OR YOUR ALLIES!
MP Cost: 0
Skill Effects: Spammable (no cooldown/delay), can be used to cause damage to your enemies, can be used to heal you and your allies. This skill comes in 3 wave combo in which the 1st and 2nd cause the same light damage/heal but on the 3rd will cause twice or even more damage/heal. This is a great beginners skill and a spammable buffer skill when your main skills are currently on cooldown. You may also move while casting/using this skill.
MP Cost: 2
Cooldown: 8 seconds
Skill Effects:This skill will cause moderate damage to your enemies while it will heal you or your allies. This skill will also slow down the HP Recovery rate once used on an enemy. You may also move while casting/using this skill.
Path affinity: Shepherd and Magellanas Judgement
MP Cost: 2
Cooldown: 10 seconds
Skill Effects: Raises a shield to protect your or a target ally. The amount of protected HP is shown as a light blue marking on your character or the ally target HP bar. You may also move while casting/using this skill. Unlocked at level 3.
Path affinity: Shepherd
MP Cost: 3
Cooldown: 12 seconds
Skill Effects: Surrounds you with a blast of purifying energy which heals you and your allies while causes moderate damage to your enemies. AoE Heal/Damage Skill. You cannot move while casting or using this skill. Casting time is around 2 seconds. Unlocked at level 4.
Path affinity: Shepherd, Magellanas and Judgement
During the tutorial quest you will encounter normal and elite mobs. Please get familiarized with the difference between your single and area of attack skills. As shown on the image above, the Purifying blast is able to heal you and your allies while cause damage to your enemies at the same time.
The Mystic is a very strategy reliant class. As a newbie, you do not have the tanking capabilities as a Warrior have nor the high burst damage of a Ranger, however you have the middle ground. Learn how, when and where to utilize your skills to accomplish 2 or more objectives at the same time.
~First Boss Encounter~
Normal/Elite/Boss monsters will sometimes cast a Area of Attack (AoE) skill which will show a red telegraph on the floor. As a Mystic you have to learn to predict and avoid these telegraphs.
Cooldown: 18 seconds
Skill Effects: Targets with arcane energy that deals continues heavy damage. Please take note that the skill description says that "This skill must be cast REPEATEDLY", but i think this is a typo error. The skill must be cast continuously and NOT repeatedly. You may move while using this skill. This skill will also jump from one target to another in case the first target dies before the skill effect ends.
Path affinity: Verity Spirit
The 5 skills on this page will be your mail skills until you reach ~. Please always keep this skills at max level. The next skill will be unlocked at level 18 (Dead Blast), 25 (Void Walk), 30 (DreadFall) and 35 (Aurora).
Aerial Island is the newbie area. Here you will learn the basics of Quest, Quest tracking, Skill Combos
You might encounter some small treasure boxes during your stay on this island. I highly suggest that you DO NOT interact with these boxes as opening them will cost you some precious stamina. However, in case you encounter a rare Big/Giant treasure box, then please pick up this type of treasure box as it will provide gold and rarely items that will be worth the stamina cost. Please visit the Beginners Guide for more info about Stamina.
After completing the Coulder Crab kill quest, the Main Quest line will teach you on how you can upgrade your skills. Please do not hesitate to upgrade all your current skills by tapping/clicking the Auto-Upgrade button. I suggest that you always max upgrade your skills every time you level up. The max level that your skills can be upgraded into is based on your character level.
The quest rewards on this island will not only teach you about the game mechanics but will also provide some items, equipment’s and even upgrade items to help you move forward through the game.
Objects and your environment can cause damage to your character. So please be alert at all times!
A gorgeous introduction to the Main Quest line will be unraveled during your stay on the Aerial Island.
~Auto Path/Battle Mode~
Not everyone knows that you can enable auto combat mode even without a quest. Just tap/click the screen icon on the lower right corner of the mini map to activate the automatic combat mode. Your character will attack all monsters (excluding open world bosses) while in ACM.
~[M]AIN QUEST& [T]UTORIAL QUEST~
[T]utorial Quest are your quest related to the game mechanics like dungeon introductions, event introductions, features and many more. You will receive different types of rewards from the Tutorial Quest line along with the rewards of that you may obtain inside the dungeons or while performing the game events.
[T]utorial Quest: SurgeWind Valley Charge
You will receive this quest as early as level 8 and it will require you to enter a battlefield that is populated by ingame bots. This quest will introduce the multiplayer PvP system of the game. I highly suggest that you do this quest once you reached level level 13.
[M]ain Quest: First Mount
You will receive your first mount via Main quest at level 8. Please visit the Beginners Guide for more info about mounts.
From here on, please follow the [M]ain Quest until you reach level 10 or 15. Please don't forget to take your level up rewards. Please check the Beginners Guide for more info about rewards.
[M]ain Quest: Driven Insanely
This is one of the quest that you DO NOT want to auto battle mode since it will automatically target the male character which attacks you. You have to manually target/select and kill the female character which provides invulnerability to the male character.
Just by doing the [M]ain Quest you should be able to reach level 13 easily. You should also have the same equipment’s as below:
Now you may complete the [T]utorial Quest easily!
[T]utorial Quest: SurgeWind Valley Charge MAP
[T]utorial Quest: SurgeWind Valley Charge Ranking
[T]utorial Quest: Life Skills / Forge Equipment
[T]utorial Quest: Scar Plains
Continue with the [M]ain Quest after completing all the current [T]utorial Quest.
You will receive your 1st Free Epic Gear from the [M]ain Quest True Identity
[T]utorial Quest: Dire Galleon
By this time you should be at least level 15 with Green set and Epic Sub weapon. As a low level and low geared player, i suggest that you avoid the auto-battle mode when entering dungeons such as Dire Galleon. Aside from the boss AoE attacks, you will also get attacked by the environment (Random exploding barrels)
Upon reaching level 16, you will unlock Chapter 2 which will bring you to the next map (Surgewind Wilds)
For [T]utorial Quest Receive Order you might need to wait for the right time to complete this quest.
I highly suggest that you try to complete all [M]ain Quest before performing repeatable dungeons and daily events unless they only become available during a certain time of the day. In which case, please do the timed quest/events/dungeons as soon as possible.
At level 17 you will hit a wall where the [M]ain Quest will require you to reach level 18 first before proceeding. This is the perfect time to farm exp via Adventure>Daily/Timed Events. For more info about Adventure Events please check the Beginners Guide.
In my case, i choose to perform Trial Quest. Please take note that you will receive exp, reputation points, gold, silver and talent points during the quest sets. The Trial Quest count will only increase once the quest set is completed, thus you may cancel the quest by leaving the Trial Quest party once you reached level 18.
Reaching level 18 is one of the monumental steps for a Mystic. This is the level where you will unlock 2 new active skills.
MP Cost: 0
Cooldown: 15 seconds
Skill Effects: "Generates an energy field that continuously heals allies" but it is more like, summon a tower that will heal you or your allies which can later on be optimized (heal 2 at a time) or convert into a damaging tower (Cause damage to enemies) later on (Path).
Path affinity: ALL PATHS
MP Cost: 36
Skill Effects: A beam of energy strikes target inflicting light damage and fear. Although the damage is not that much, the status effect FEAR is something that is very useful in both PvE (excluding boss fights) and in PvP.
Path affinity: Verity Spirit and Magellanas Judgement
You may now proceed in completing your [M]ain Quest and i highly suggest that you do your main quest alone until you reach level 19 and the Main quest requires you to reach level 23 to proceed.
At this stage, just continue with the Trial quest or do some Reputation Task or Complete the Logistics and Supply Quest until you reach level 20.
Level 20 is where the PATH begins. To activate the Mystic Path System, please upgrade any of your current active skills to level 20.
When any of your current active skill reach level 20, the 3 Mystic Paths will be unlocked. Please take note that you may learn 1, 2 or all of the 3 Paths but you can only activate/use 1 path at a time.
~The MYSTIC PATHS~
The SHEPHERD Path focuses on improving the support and healing capabilities of a Mystic.
Shepherd Path node tree:
Bonus under Shepherd Path are:
MP Cost: 3
Cooldown: 20 seconds
Skill Effects: Uses the enlightenment state of nearby allies to restore their HP. Self and Party AoE Massive Heal. Affected players will also receive Enlightenment State which will further heal them.
The MAGELLANA'S JUDGEMENT Path focuses on 1 target burst damage attack skill improvements. You will also learn new skills exclusive to this path.
Magellana's Judgement Path node tree:
Bonus and skill under Magellana's Judgement Path are:
MP Cost: 2
Cooldown: 20 seconds
Skill Effects: Launches continues bolts of arcane energy, dealing heavy damage to target. Can be used/casted while moving.
The VERITY SPIRIT Path focuses on improving the AoE capabilities of a Mystic. You will also learn new skills exclusive to this path.
Verity Spirit Path node tree:
Bonus and skills under Magellana's Judgement Path are:
Cooldown: 10 seconds
Skill Effects: Shoot evil spirits to all enemies within a 20 meters radius from your character, remove their shields, inflict damage and fear on each enemy hit.
~Last 3 Active Skills~
MP Cost: 16
Cooldown: 15 seconds
Skill Effects: Unlocked at level 25. Dash/Teleport forward in a short distance to where your character is facing. Damage is applied around 5 meters on the spot where the skill is activated. Can be used while moving.
Path Affinity: Verity Spirit
MP Cost: 90
Cooldown: 12 seconds
Skill Effects: Unlocked at level 30. Summons a Void Creature that cause heavy damage and float status to all enemies on the target area. 5 meters target AoE. Can be used while moving.
Path Affinity: Verity Spirit
MP Cost: X
Cooldown: X seconds
Skill Effects: Unlocked at level 35. Summons an arcane energy barrier to surround the target ally. All allies in the barrier are protected by an arcane energy shield. AoE party Shield Buff.
Path Affinity: Shepherd
5 meters bonus to Dread Blast = means you will hit more of your enemies and heal more of your allies. In RAID dungeons like Scar Plains, Dire Galleon, Ancestral Altar and Goblint Camp where you will most likely be scattered, the 5m bonus in Dread Blast radius is immeasurable!
15% damage reduction after using Void walk = Void walk is commonly used to avoid attacks (thus the name) or to dive into a group of mobs. Having 15% damage reduction after void walk is very beneficial.
Light Sigil will recast Void Walk = more like remove the cool down of voice walk. If you cast Void Walk then cast Light Sigil, the cooldown of Void Walk will automatically complete thus you may cast void walk again. Since Light Sigil's cooldown is only 15 seconds, this is almost a guarantee that you may use 2 void walks before and after Light Sigil. This is very useful in avoiding attacks or running from closers.
VOID SPIRIT = is a very powerful AoE skill. It is in par with the total damage of Suppression (MJ Path) and its AoE... but that's not all! It also removes any shield buff on the target and also inflict fear!
Force of will and Dreadfall have a chance to reset Void Spirit which makes this skill combo more OP!
Force of Will attacks 2 targets at the same time = nuf said.
Suggested Skills (In any arrangement)
Useful Skill Combos:
Blinker: Void Walk + Light Sigil + Void Walk
Skud Sorm: VSR + DreadFall + FoW + Dread Blast for any remaining monster (DF and FoW chance to remove VSR CD)
Verity Spirit path is great and I Highly recommend it for PvE, Dungeon Runs and Multi Player PvP for Mystics who wants to cause DPS.
The MAGELLANAS JUDGEMENT Path is the best 1 on 1 DPS skill path for Mystics. I highly recommend this path in 1 on 1 PvP Arena.
Increases CRIT by 10% and that's Crit Rate not Crit Damage. No idea what "suppressed crit" is.
10% bonus damage when attack/skill crits. 10% is HUGE! especially when your Suppression skill crits!
The Stats progression of this path also amplifies the magic damage of your character (+3 INT per level)
Useful Skill Combos: (1 on 1 PvP/Arena)
Suppression > Cast Purifying Blast as soon as Suppression starts the cooldown, you will see your character causing damage with suppression while casting Purifying blast at the same time! > DreadFall > While enemy is floating cast > Mystic Galaxy > then Cast DreadBlast > Cast Light Sigil Sigil > Use normal attack or use available skill.
In case you are fighting a Ranger Class, you should try to get near the enemy as close as possible.
Suggested Skills (In any arrangement)
The SHEPHERD Path is the all around support. With a Shepherd, the survival rate of the party is boosted unless the player is in auto-battle mode lolz.
With multiple single and multi target heals, shield, AoE Shield, Dual healing tower (Light Sigil) this path is surely the game's perfect support path.
Key Notes for a good support:
Always focus your single shield and heal skills on the tank.
Reserve AoE heals for emergencies.
Use AoE Shield (Aurora) only when the boss will release a massive AoE attack or when the tank needs some shield and your Arcane Shield is still under cooldown.
Always make sure that you have more than enough reserves! (please check the Beginners Guide for more info about reserves)
DO NOT DO AUTO BATTLE MODE!!!
Suggested Skills (In any arrangement)
If you have some correction, suggestion or question about this guide, Please do not hesitate to post it on the comment section below.
What makes an online game interesting? There can be several factors. Some players might enjoy an open world multiplayer gaming environment while others prefer a short and sweet game where players are pitted against each other in an enclosed and obstacle filled environment. Still Alive falls under the latter category where a set of five players from different spheres of the globe are put into a battle field where they have to kill each other in order to win the game. The game is simple and extremely fun to play once you get a good hang of the combat system and controls that have been used in the game. The game is still not released officially and is available only in select countries. In addition to this, out of the two game modes which are available one is still not accessible by players. This article will give you a small peek into what the game comprises of and whether it is one worth playing.
Still Alive is a new action based online multiplayer game which has been launched for Android devices by the developers Funter. Still alive is a third person game where five players are made to battle it out against each other in order to win. The genre of the game is definitely not new, but the way it has been created does give it a whole new gaming experience. The five players will have to fight it out against each other over a period of ten minutes. Yes, ten minutes, that’s a really long time for an arena based battle. But if you get good at the controls and have challenging opponents the game will definitely become very interesting and ten minutes will not seem like a very long time. But such is not the case during the initial first couple of rounds. Players will tend to get bored of the game as there is a good chance that they will find the combat system and controls annoying, despite all this, the game has a lot of potential to become a highly successful game considering all the other interesting aspects of it.
Players can choose from across three characters and will have to craft weapons of their choice for their character. Once in the combat, players will have a time period of ten minutes to get as many kills as possible. A player will respawn if gets killed. Therefore, the winner of the round is determined by the number of enemies that he has killed and the number of times he has respawned.
The game is a treat to the eyes. The characters and the gaming environment look extremely colourful and realistic. Hats off to the developers for making such good graphics. This aspect does definitely make the game more interesting and would become one of the primary reasons for its success. The characters do look extremely good and the weapons that they are equipped with does show the mean character of it. Another noteworthy point is that the developers have not made one better at the cost of another. Despite focusing a lot of attention to detail on the characters they have not compromised on any aspects with regard to the gaming environment. Meticulous attention to detail has been observed in ensuring that the environment poses all the challenges and all the objects and opponents can be seen moving around.
There is no tutorial which is offered in Still Alive. This is probably because the game does not really require any. It’s just five players in a closed arena fighting with each other for a time period of ten minutes. That’s about it.
The control system in the game is definitely worth mentioning. It features a simple floating joystick on the left hand side of the screen which is used to control the movement of your character. Towards the right side you have designated buttons for each skill that you use. If you need to sprint, there is a button placed on the right hand side. Your directions control while you sprint are not covered by the floating joystick on the left but it can be controlled directly by adjusting the direction on the sprint button. The combat system features a lot of options which are scattered across the bottom of the screen. Each special move has a loading time once it has been used by the player. An interesting aspect of the game is that players will have to keep moving. This ensures that other players will be able to keep an eye on you and plan out their next move. The same strategy can be used by the player also.
The game tries to make the players challenge themselves. In order to this, they have not included an auto aim option. Players will have to personally pin point their targets on the screen and fire. The game becomes even more challenging as the same skill cannot be used more than once in quick successions. However, a drawback to this feature is that the new players will take quite some time to get themselves adjusted to the game. But once they do, the game is sure to be a lot of fun.
There are three different characters which have been provided in the game. All players are given the same options. The distinctive aspect here is that each player has their own unique weapons. In addition to this, players will have to craft the weapons of their choice for the character that they choose. Each character in the game has a set of weapons and shields and gadgets that they can use. This ensures that the game becomes more difficult to play. You can even change the character you are playing with in order to get rid of the monotony. However, if you start over with a new character there is a good chance you’ll lose the first couple of rounds as it will take some time to get adjusted to the gaming style and weapons of that particular character.
|Version||Android 4.1 and above|

Still Alive is a very promising and fun filled game. It therefore is worthy of being given a rating of 8/10.

We all saw it, the Destiny 2 gameplay reveal livestream on Thursday. It was the thing that everybody was waiting for and now the hype train has finally kicked into full swing. Destiny 2 has a lot to live up to. Many promises have been made and some have proven to come true. Based off what we have seen, we can make some expectations, have some opinions and overall, judge how the game is going to play out. So let’s look at some things and make some assumptions about Destiny 2.
The New Destiny 2 possible front cover.
Let’s first talk about how the graphics look. Destiny 1 according to Bungie was using a heavily upgraded version of the graphics engine used to make Halo 3. While Destiny 1 looked great for an engine that old Destiny 2 looks fan freaking tastic. Built from the ground up using an entirely new engine and software, this game look absolutely gorgeous. The first mission alone from the livestream shows us what we’ll be seeing. Whether effects, pretty explosions, battleships, and new enemies that want to kill all of us but look super cool while doing it. However a lot of things can change from now to September. Things can certainly change. Many games have suffered the fate of not looking good at launch compared to when they initially revealed. Considering Bungie had about 3 Years to perfect everything, they better have gotten it right.
I loved the way the new graphics looked, it was so pretty to look at (not saying war is pretty but this game is) I mean come on! Destiny has been a pretty game to look at but this takes the cake, this is just amazing. Thank you new engine that Bungie has you just made the game look even prettier. Now will it stay that way when the game launches? Or will it be even better! Considering Bungie still has some work to do with the game I bet it will look even better than the livestream!
A look at the first mission in Destiny 2.
Let’s talk about gameplay. From what I can tell it plays exactly like Destiny 1 but more refined. Obviously there will be new weapons and armor as well as new exotics like the new Exotic Sub Machine Gun. More information is coming out even days after the stream. The thing I am quite excited about is the new powers we get! We got to see the new subclasses, Dawnblade for the Warlock, Sentinel for the Titan, Arcstrider for Hunters, and maybe that minigun we saw in the stream (I love me a minigun).
To be honest while the Arcstrider (I main a Hunter) looks really freaking cool, I get a lot of flashbacks to how pathetically weak the Bladedancer was in Destiny 1, at least in PvE. I mean it was meant to be a high damage slayer class thingy and it was soooo weak and I was so disappointed in it. Plus Bladedancers were everywhere in the Crucible so I have a bad feeling that we’re going to be experiencing something quite similar with this new Arcstrider class. However on the flip side I get to be Captain America as a Titan. Throwing that shield around, kinda reminds me of the Sunbreaker Subclass, but instead of a Hammer we get a Shield, and it’s purple not fire red. The Warlock’s new Dawnblade subclass is SO COOL!!! I get to be a flying valkyrie space wizard!! Okay it’s a weird combo but it works because of Destiny’s space magic absurdity. HOWEVER, I am worried on how they are going to balance the subclasses for both PvE and PvP. My guess is that they will make the same mistake they made in Destiny 1. As for weapons I can’t say the same considering there are entirely new weapons for the game. Including an exotic Sub-Machine Gun. So we’ll have to play that one by ear. But considering Bungie hasn’t mentioned anything about weapon balancing I am a bit worried but we’ll see. I JUST WANT MY MINIGUN ALREADY!!!
MINIGUN!!!! GIVE IT TO ME!!!
One of the biggest elements Destiny 2 is bringing that Destiny 1 messed up big time and I am most excited about is the STORY!!!! FINALLY A STORY!!! However we only know what was shared. That the City and Tower was destroyed, The Speaker disappears, The Red Legion captures The Traveler draining our powers and the Vanguard are scattered throughout the Solar System and we have to obtain our old powers back through new means and find new loot.
The story could take any kind of crazy twist or turn. Or completely fall flat on it’s face like the first one. Will we see what happened to the Queen and her Brother? Will we solve the riddle of the Vex? What about the mystery of The Stranger? Y’know, that one Exo Girl that appeared and helped us and then vanished just as quickly. What about her Bungie? I think those story elements of the Vex and the Stranger will be dropped in Destiny 2 in favor of this new story which takes place after The Taken King and The Rise of Iron. Who knows where it will take us. However I feel despite the epic story I feel it will either be extremely short or Bungie will once again drop the ball. But only time will tell with this one.
We lose everything.
One of the last things Bungie showed off were the new worlds that we get to go to. Earth’s European Dead Zone, IO, Titan, and Nessus. Nessus being a Vex Machine World, IO being the last place The Traveler’s light hit before The Collapse, and Titan being an old human utopia. Supposedly according to Bungie that is the biggest location to date. It’s a little disappointing since we were supposed to go to Saturn. And the other worlds are kind of moons. I mean what each world is supposed to be is cool but it is disappointing we don’t go to Saturn. But it is exciting we get to see Earth outside the Tower, Cosmodrome and Iron Temple. In fact our new social space in the European Dead Zone, a small town. Will we get to interact with the people of the town? Who knows, but these new worlds have new secrets and I am excited.
There are also parts of the world you supposedly cannot find on the map and have to physically find yourself. That is really cool because it gives you a sort of depth to the world Destiny 1 kind of lacked. I just have this sneaking suspicion that the worlds will be baren like the first game. And I hope that is not the case. But if it is it will seriously kill the excitement of exploring the world. I guess the one thing they got right was the fact that you don’t have to go into Orbit to go from Planet to Planet anymore….That’s cool….I guess….
The New Worlds.
One of the little changes that Destiny 2 makes is that clans are now supported WITHIN THE GAME AND NOT BUNGIE. NET. Thank God, not only does this help the game, this also helps the community get to know one another. You can view the clans achievements and see what the clans all about when you look them up it’s extremely helpful. While yes it’s something minor little things can go a long way and this is definitely something the first Destiny needed and I am so happy it’s in the game finally.
Something else that is pretty big is that Destiny allows matchmaking for Nightfalls and Raids, both of which are returning to Destiny. I am REALLY REALLY happy about this for one big reason. IT WOULD TAKE FOREVER TO FIND A PARTY FOR THE NIGHTFALL AND RAID! So thank you Bungie…..you listened. THANK YOUUUUU!!! It’s called Guided Games which allows clans and solo players to play with each other. This is so helpful and as a solo player (most of the time, I am in a clan but there only a few of us left) this helps IMMENSELY!!! Okay I’m done….. There is a few things I would like to address that was not mentioned in the stream that I mentioned before and some I didn’t.
The New Clan System.
There are a few things that concern me. Such as weapon balancing, ability balancing, and online connectivity, as well the RNG System for loot. If Destiny 1 had taught us anything, Bungie cannot properly do any of those things. Online connectivity being a big one as most of Destiny 1 was peer to peer connected which was God awful. Not only that but the RNG system was just…...oh boy…..You’re making me relive bad memories. As for weapons balancing there were periods where Hand Cannons reigned supreme (I hate you Thorn. I will forever hate you) then it was pulse rifles and eventually after more than a year and half later Bungie found a happy balance. As for RNG, they still have yet to fix it and it’s still broken as well as the ability balancing (Warlock melees are still OP Bungie!!).
The biggest problem is the Grimoire Cards on Bungie.Net, what’s the problem? They exist on a different medium. It’s completely unnecessary as games such as Dark Souls have any special lore details within the game. Why can’t Destiny do something similar? It’s a problem that needs to be fixed with Destiny 2 and I hope Bungie fixes this. The big problem also is that there is already a season pass for 2 DLC’s just like Destiny 1…….This is a big problem and while this is more on the side of Activision this is an extremely bad sign of things to come and I hope this is fixed immediately.
Can we not have this on Bungie. Net and in the game instead?
These are all just some of the details that were revealed and my opinions on them as well as some issues that need to addressed in the next installment. I personnally believe that this is the saving that Bungie desperately needs if they wish to keep this IP alive and keep us. The fans happy. I believe that this will be a really great game and they wiil fix all, if not most of the mistakes they made in the first Destiny.
But what do you think? Is Destiny 2 going to flop and complete destroy Bungie’s reputation? Or is it going to be the saving grace that the Destiny Universe and Bungie need. Are you excited? What caught your eye? Leave your comments down below and I’ll be sure to respond. Thank you for reading me nerd out a little bit and complain a little on what needs to be changed.
Thank You For Reading!!!
What do you think about the game's future in NA and EU market?
The Chinese video game giant has reported $3.3 billion revenue in Q1 2017, which is about twice as much as Activision Blizzard's revenue, which was $1.73 billion. Tencent's financial report indicated that the video game revenue increased 55% y-o-y.
Mobile games in particular, recorded a $1.87 billion revenue in Q1, marking 8 consecutive quarters of growth. Popular mobile games like Strike of Kings, Dragon Nest Mobile, and CrossFire Mobile showed agressive growth. You can see Tencent Games' major game line-up below.

When Alien: Covenant In Utero was released, some people were disappointed about the it was a 360-degree video without full VR interactive experience. However now it seems like we will have a multiplayer VR experience set in the Alien universe.
Recently, 20th Century Fox’s Interactive Entertainment and theme park arm FoxNext is building a 2000 sq. ft free-roaming multiplayer VR experience set in the world of the Alien movie franchise.
The new Alien game will be a first-person shooter featuring immersive fighting against alien creatures. Although not confirmed, it does sound like the experience may be weapons oriented, with a chance that the experience may veer towards an Aliens setting.
“FoxNext was created to support our motion pictures and with the view that technology is creating an opportunity for us to really revolutionize the way stories will be told in the future,” FoxNext president Salil Mehta said, “There’s enormous innovation occurring that allows real interactive storytelling, and we created divisions to focus on games, VR and location-based entertainment. We’re trying to define the best ways to create content for each.”
What are the new Chinese MMORPGs that are worth waiting for? Netease's Justice should be one of them. The long-awaited martial arts MMO finally released the actual in-game footage, recorded by the in-game camera on a GeForce GTX 1080 PC.
The video features a playable character "Iron Fist", equal to a Kung Fu Master class in MMO, who smashes multiple enemies and some objects in the environment. According to Netease, the content shown in the video is Iron Fist fights his way out of an ambush, which is a part of Iron Fist's main story.
What you can't see in the video is a martial arts world with a lot of freedom. Your behaviors in the game and reactions to NPC will affect your fate in the game. Do you think Justice will bring martial arts game back to the golden age?
Justice will start alpha in China in July 2017. We'll keep you updated.
