Feature: The game that made me better at games

Have you played… Protolife?

Protolife occupies a rather special place in my repository of tower defence games for two reasons. First, the central concept of controlling a little construction bot that poops out blue blocks in specific patterns to create all your defences. It's neat, it's elegant, and it places you into Protolife's world in a way that few games in this genre manage. Secondly, it's better than pretty…

Mordhau shields guide – shield stats & info, how to use and counter shields

Mordhau's selection of shields is remarkably diverse both in size and in terms of their potential for completely shaking up Mordhau's magnificently elaborate combat system. This Mordhau shields guide is, I think, a necessary addition to our Mordhau series, because not only have I seen many players asking what the point of shields is as they appear far too weak and cumbersome, but I've also…

Fortnite weapons guide (V9.10) – Fortnite guns, weapon stats, best weapon in Fortnite Season 9

Fortnite's weapons roster has never been given much time to settle down throughout its history, but Season 9 has taken this to new levels. Not only have we seen two new weapons and the vaulting of some old classics, but now we've got the old Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle to discuss for the first time in about 3 seasons. What better time, we thought, to go…

Fortnite Snipers guide (V9.10) – Fortnite Sniper tips, Sniper aiming guide, Fortnite’s best Sniper Rifle

There's nothing quite so satisfying in Fortnite as landing a good headshot on a moving enemy from afar with a sniper rifle. But for so many players, it happens far too infrequently, because snipers are fickle guns which require great accuracy and timing to use well. Well, our Fortnite Snipers guide is here to change that. Updated for v9.10 of Fortnite, we've got all the…

Mordhau archery guide – Longbow, Recurve Bow, Crossbow tips and techniques

Archery in Mordhau is a bit of a polarizing topic. At times a skilled Longbowman laying waste to their enemy from afar can be just about the most frustrating thing imaginable. Other times, you might go what feels like 5 whole minutes without ever landing a shot - except on your own teammates. If you're looking to improve your game from the latter to the…

The Division 2 weapons/guns – damage stats, The Division 2 best weapons, Exotic weapons list

Some have called The Division 2 one of the loot-n-shooter genre's very best titles, and - whether or not you agree - much of this success is down to the tight gunplay and diverse arsenal of guns and weapons to choose from. As you stalk the streets of Washington D.C., you know at all times that you're only as good as the two primary weapons…

Mordhau weapons guide – full weapon stats, how to use Mordhau’s best weapons

One of the many things I enjoy about Mordhau is just how much thought has been put into its enormous armoury of weapons on offer. With each weapon featuring up to 48 different damage stats, unique attack animation speeds, stamina drain values, attack ranges, and much more, you can be sure it was no small task to creating and balancing these weapons; and nor was…

Have You Played… Frostpunk?

Frostpunk is a very pretty game about trying to build the last city on Earth after an icy global catastrophe. I, like many others, spent about 25% of my time giving orders to build and gather and research, and the other 75% of my time zooming in as far as the camera allowed to watch my miniature hooded citizens trudging through the snow, or clustered…

Mordhau game modes – explanations and tips for Frontline, Skirmish, Horde, and Duel Servers

I spent a great many dozens of hours figuring out how to play Mordhau before I first tried Horde Mode. I'd got to the point where I would consistently rank at the top of the leaderboards on Frontline, Team Deathmatch, Duel servers... but when I first played Horde, I was completely lost. I died on Wave 4, after being pinned against a stone wall with…
