Quantic Screams: Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy

There’s a series of games that almost everyone I know likes and that I hated. I hated them so much that they put me off the whole Interactive Movie genre. Those games are the work of David Cage and his Parisian based company, Quantic Dream, of which he is the founder, co-CEO, director, lead game designer and screenwriter (he’s also a freelance musician and possibly Head of Keeping it Real). Basically he’s more important to QD than Miyamoto is to Nintendo.

Sea-Salt Recollections: Part 1 – Kingdom Hearts

Kingdom Hearts. The insane fusion of Disney and Final Fantasy characters that on paper sounded like the strangest combination in the gaming world, yet somehow defied all expectation and turned out to be a system defining RPG with one of the most devoted and rabid fanbases you’ll ever see. With a complex (emphasis on complex) narrative that rivals Metal Gear Solid in terms of confusion and out of order storylines, told through countless branching titles, varied gameplay elements (depending on the game), and a mixture of entertainment universes that should not mesh this well, the series has gone strong for over fifteen years now with fans feverishly awaiting the arrival of Kingdom Hearts 3 in 2018.

Are Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon Worthy of Sunsetting the Handheld Era?

For 21 years, the Pokemon franchise has made its home on Nintendo’s flagship handheld consoles (outside of the occasional spinoff on consoles) and was the go to place for hundreds of hours of monster catching RPG fun. From the Gameboy to the 3DS, there has never been a shortage of Pokemon fun to be had on the go. Now, with the release of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, the age of handheld exclusive Pokemon games has come to an end.

Team Overview: Dallas Fuel

Dallas Fuel, or “EnVyUs & friends”, are one of six teams in the Pacific division; alongside both Los Angeles teams, San Francisco, Seoul and Shanghai. Their team colours are blue, slightly darker blue and a metallic silver. The team is co-owned by both EnVyUs and Hersh Interactive. According to their announcement post on the Overwatch League website, the team name was chosen as an “homage to the area’s role in the energy sector” while the colours were chosen to represent Team Envy’s nickname, ‘The Boys in Blue’. As expected, the team roster is made up of Contenders winning team Envy, with the additions of Canadian tank xQc and Australian support Custa.

Rainbow Six Siege for Beginners: A Primer by Emaaz

First and foremost, the only actually useful thing is learning. The maps, the Operators and their gadgets, the mechanics of the game are all things you can master only through hours and hours of practice, not only on the battlefield (no pun intended) but also during your “dead time”. Got ten minutes before a class or dinner? Why not watch an R6S video on YouTube to entertain yourself (there are plenty of good YouTubers playing Siege daily: MacieJay, Serenity17, Skittlz, and NarcolepticNugget are just the most famous ones) or read a couple articles about tips for improving your gameplay? (gotcha here ;] )

Happy First Anniversary, RM!

A year ago today Raging Monkeys was born. During that year it saw an incredible amount of growth, a stupendous amount of chatting and enough gaming to disappoint all of our parents. We’ve had ups and downs, but along the way we’ve always managed to have a laugh. Sometimes those laughs were deeply inappropriate, but at least they were laughs. Of course anniversaries are a great time to look back, so we asked everyone what they remembered most fondly from their time as a Monkey. The response was both overwhelmingly large and amazingly lovely.

So, I’ve Saved the World Again… Now What?

50,000 people used to live here. Now it’s a ghost town. Things might not be quite that drastic, but there has been a noticeable drop-off in activity across the Destiny 2 community as of late. Fans of Destiny rode out the first game on a high note: three years worth of content at end game levels and outstanding quality of life updates. Needless to say, that wave carried right into and through the launch of Destiny 2. The game saw over 1.2 million concurrent players a few days after the game was released. Things were looking great. So… what happened? Here are my thoughts on that matter:

The Battle for the Internet: Why Net Neutrality is Important

Hello all RM and others! This small piece is to inform you about the upcoming decision to end Net Neutrality. Currently this problem is only in United States of America and is coming from Trump’s FCC chairman Ajit Pai, but if Net Neutrality ends, it could be the leading factor that makes other countries say “Well if America’s done it, it can work”. Now how does Net Neutrality apply to the everyday person?

Success on the Horizon? The Dawning of a New Chapter in ‘The Frozen Wilds’

Earlier this year Guerilla Games released Horizon Zero Dawn to critical acclaim and commercial success, a brand new IP that brings it’s own unique twist to a post apocalyptic world. The game was exceptionally well received by fans and critics alike, even though it came at pretty much the same time as Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Measuring Moira’s Might in the Meta

Hero 26, aka Moira, has finally left the PTR (Public Test Realm) and hit the live game. She’s a support hero with some interesting interactions, but how does she affect the current meta?
