‘Gloomhaven’ is Getting a Video Game Adaptation

“In this rogue-like dungeon-crawling adaptation of the famous board game, you will journey through terrifying randomly generated dungeons, fight against increasingly horrific and powerful foes…or die trying.

Our game designers are channelling Gloomhaven’s quintessential spirit day after day: deep tactical mechanics, battle preparations… and also dying.

In Gloomhaven, you play as a team of mercenaries on their own personal quests to go conquer a world of darkness and trials. Choose your group members wisely, because in the turmoil of battle you can only rely on your wits, skills and spells to fight your way through the putrid dungeons and forgotten ruins.

If you survive your perilous journeys, you might have the opportunity to expand your team, improve your spells or maybe fill your coin purse. You’ll need these things to overcome the hordes of malicious beasts, demons and whatever else may find itself in your path towards victory and domination of all. No decision should ever be made lightly, so choose with caution!”

Parents Are Paying To Get Their Kids Fortnite Training

Wish I could say I’m making this up but I’m not. Although this isn’t new in the video game industry, Fortnite has made it more popular to hire a coach so that you can get better at the game.

According to The Wall Street Journal (via Bleacher Report), parents are paying coaches by the hour to improve their children’s Fortnite techniques. One parent commented, “There’s pressure not to just play it but to be really good at it. You can imagine what that was like for him at school.” Parents may commonly pay for their children to learn a sport or an instrument, but now that same concept is going toward video game prowess.
