CoD Warzone: F2P vs Purchased Game – What’s The Difference?

Call of Duty's latest take on the battle royale genre, Warzone, went live last night. For those who are considering on getting the game but still unclear of the differences between the full version and the free-to-play; fret not. We've got you covered and broke down each pressing query. The base game is free Call of Duty: Warzone is free to play o...

The Magic Rain’s Top 10 Best Games Of 2019

It's been about a month into 2020, but some of us are still hung up over what to call the best game last year. 2019 was probably one of the best years for gaming within the past few years. We saw companies rise above previous trials, and others with their armour cracking, revealing the true monsters inside. But enough of descriptive metaphors for ...

Remembering Kobe Bryant’s 20-Year Career In Basketball Video Games

Sad news for sports fans: Kobe Bryant tragically passed away recently. He was renowned as the de facto NBA basketball player from his humble beginnings in 1996 to 2016. https://twitter.com/StoolGametime/status/1221556723221254146 He's been breaking records and maintaining streaks for 20 years to the point where he's renowned worldwide. To pay ...

Kakuchopurei’s Best of 2019: The Auto Battler Genre

TeamFight Tactics. Auto Chess. Dota Underlords. You may have played either one of them and they have their own variations, tilesets, and rules. However, they all go under the same class of competitive games that dominated mobile games and PCs earlier in 2019. The premise is easy: buy "chess" pieces, put them on the board, let them fight it out b...

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: Untitled Goose Game

The premise of this wacky Australian-made game is pretty simple. You are a Goose and your job is to completely wreck the lives of the people in the nearby village. And that's pretty much it. Forget all other sophisticated video game concepts. Untitled Goose Game is the kind of video game we never knew we wanted. This is one of those games prett...

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: Apex Legends

How do you challenge the behemoth that is the ubiquitous Fortnite? Do you face the king of battle royale head-on by ripping them off? Or do you stick to your guns and pray that your "realistic" approach -*cough*PUBG*cough-  appeals to the more "matured" crowd? What about creating your own niche instead? Here's how: Incorporate the hero shoote...

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: Borderlands 3

From humble beginnings to running a publication as head of content, I do owe my path in games writing and criticism to the Borderlands franchise, at least the mothership titles. Starting off with my 2008-2009 stint on GameAxis with the first game... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VMhNUIiM7U ...to my 2012 GameSpot work and scoring an exclusive ...

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: Call Of Duty – Modern Warfare

For a series supposedly beaten to death like a proverbial horse corpse, the latest Call of Duty is attempting a lot of new things. Best of all, it distinctively impresses by nailing most of its new theatrics. Case in point, the single-player campaign. The 8 hours-or-so multi-protagonist approach to a modern combat story works, especially if you're...

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: Indivisible

The first moment I saw the art in Skullgirls, I immediately knew I wanted more. There was only a slight hint of a disappointment as I'm not a big fan of fighting games. Thankfully, developer Lab Zero Games decided to branch out with their latest and arguably greatest contribution to the JRPG space. [gallery ids="39961,32542" type="rectangular"] I...

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: Bloodstained – Ritual Of The Night

Oh Metroidvania genre, how fast and bountiful you've flourished. Yet for every Hollow Knight and Axiom Verge out there claiming all the praise and awards, it would be nice to see a gothic vampire-laden horror-bound "anime" version of that. Especially from the king of the genre himself, Koji "I love whips & cowboy hats" Igarashi". Thankfully, ...

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: Slay The Spire

Let's get one thing out of the way: I'm not a fan of digital card games. When I saw some of my friends flocking towards games like Hearthstone and Magic: The Gathering Arena, I didn't even feel slightly interested. When I first saw gameplay of Slay the Spire, I wasn't impressed either. Then I gave it a try and oh boy, I'm glad I did. Slay the ...

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: Kingdom Hearts 3

Kingdom Hearts 3 is one of the most highly-anticipated games in this generation, or in the history of gaming. Frankly, it was never going to live up to the hype that has been gradually building up since 2005's Kingdom Hearts 2. Nevertheless, I believe that Square Enix and Tetsuya Nomura have delivered a decent game, that still shines despite its fl...

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: GreedFall

With the fall from grace of former Western RPG masters like Bioware and Bethesda, who is there to pick up the torch from where they left behind? Along came Spiders to help bring life back to a genre once populated by the Mass Effects, Dragon Ages, and The Elder Scrolls of old, with their most ambitious effort yet, GreedFall. In GreedFall, players ...

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: Control

Remedy Entertainment's Control is the biggest surprise of the year and my own personal Game Of The Year for 2019. Although it looks like just another third-person shooter at first glance, the phenomenal physics-based engine and gameplay elevate the game to being one of the most refreshing gaming experiences in this generation. Insert Metroid, Inc...

These Are Our Favourite “Toss A Coin To Your Witcher” Covers

Enjoying The Witcher Netflix series? You should; it's pretty good television. One of the memorable bits of the show includes bard Jaskier (or Dandelion if you're still into the PC version) creating a catchy theme song for Geralt called "Toss a Coin to Your Witcher". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMqVrKoLQt4 It's an awesome tune that has made a ...

Kakuchopurei’s Best of 2019: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

I'll cut to the chase. I'm no fan of the new Star Wars trilogy. I thought The Force Awaken was the strongest of the three and overall, the combination of poor writing, flimsy plot and weak characters almost killed my love for Star Wars. I thought 2019 was going to be the year when I'd call it quits with this franchise. Actually, it was in its last...

Kakuchopurei’s Best of 2019: Cadence Of Hyrule

Music is always the weapon, especially in the peppy EDM-esque world of Cadence of Hyrule. Essentially a heavily-modified Crypt of the Necrodancer, a top-down roguelike with awesome rhythm music gameplay, this Nintendo collaboration arguably improves the existing formula. How? By making it a more open-ended adventure where you can tackle whichever ...

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: River City Girls

Older gamers will remember playing a lot of classic side-scrolling beat-em-ups and brawlers back in the day before the advent of better tech took the gaming world by storm and introduced us to fully-realized 3D worlds. Thanks to developers like WayForward, we can still get those same games albeit with modern trappings. That's where River City Girl...

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled

No one expected Naughty Dog's Crash Team Racing for the PS1 in 1999 to be a genuine rival to Nintendo's legendary Mario Kart franchise, at least in Asia. But it definitely was, to the point where it was arguably even better than 1996's Mario Kart 64. Now, two decades later, Activision and Beenox give us the remake we all wanted with Crash Team Rac...

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: Disco Elysium

Some gamers would argue that reading is the worst part of playing a video game. This includes RPG players who often skip the many lore entries scattered in books and other collectibles. Well, Disco Elysium is an RPG that makes you spend 99% of the time reading. Wait, hear me out. Those who have played Disco Elysium would sometimes say that you'...
