Five Exciting Ways VR Could Disrupt The Game

You probably hear a lot about big “disrupts” in the world of technology these days. It’s generally used to describe a radical change happening to a company, product or industry. Recently it’d be hard to find a better example of a technology disrupting the marketplace than with virtual reality. It’s changing the way we do things (or at least it’s trying to) in industries ranging from gaming to real estate. As a result it’s gotten a lot of attention. But as much as we’ve been talking about VR for the last 18 months or so, there are some areas that still aren’t being covered as much as they should be.

Here are some of the potential VR disruptions you probably haven’t thought (or read) about just yet.

Arcades & Theme Parks

Most of us are still thinking of VR as a revolution for in-home gaming, and there’s one area where it’s definitely having a massive impact take that form. But if you purchase one of the better headsets and the PC or console it takes to run (something that’s left out of the basic headset price tags), you’re looking at spending at least roughly $1,000. Throw in the fact that a lot of VR games are limited by the available space around you, and in-home VR doesn’t always make a ton of sense. This is why some people are suggesting that as VR gets more sophisticated, you’ll leave your house to experience it. In all likelihood the technology will pave the way for new age arcades and theme parks, where entire areas are set up for wild virtual reality experiences. Almost like a “Holodeck” from Star Trek you can pay to go visit.

Watching Sports

VR has a tons of potential when it comes to changing the ways we watch sports. So far the NBA has led the way, and the early feedback is that the experience is surprisingly good. In the near future, it may come with enough options to be legitimately mind-blowing. We may be able to watch live contests from the virtual “seats” of our choice, or even take in courtside views. Some people have suggested we could even be able to watch the action from the perspective of a player! Imagine what it might be like to get closer than ever to an NFL game, or experience what it’s like to be a quarterback facing down oncoming linebackers. Unlike the gimmick of 3D television virtual reality really has the potential to transform how we watch and experience sports.

Online Casual Gaming

It’s not a huge leap to say that there will be all kinds of casual games looking to take advantage of VR. But some that you might not have initially thought of are poker games and other casino based titles. In fact, there’s already been several casino VR games, and other platforms are trying to recreate the experience through live dealer options. These games represent the cutting edge in online casino technology by allowing players to interact with actual dealers in real-time through a video feed. And it likely won’t be long before it makes the logical leap to VR headsets. But there’s potential that VR will help take it a step further beyond the casino and will allow players to enjoy their favorite games while exploring brand new environments. After all, the point of VR is to provide an experience different from what you can do in real life, which makes atmosphere of something like a traditional poker room almost po
intless. Instead we could see robot dealers, games set in underwater environments, poker in space, and more.


There aren’t any major reading VR apps in development that we know of just yet, but this is something to look out for as we move away from gaming. We’ve already seen the idea of electronic reading transform the book industry, and Kindle-like experiences could also be on the horizon for VR headsets. We could even see virtual libraries where we could be able to select and read books in a comfortable, studious atmosphere. There’s even a possibility that we could eventually see these world’s brought to life and watch the word literally jump off the page.


The potential of virtual reality to alter the health industry has actually been well documented. If nothing else, VR applications for treatment and surgical simulations for doctors and medical students could be invaluable tools. But not everyone is as aware of the potential for VR to help with mental health. From alleviating stress to helping with specific anxieties, there’s a lot of potential in this area, and the health and tech industries are only just scratching the surface. They’re already making great strides in using the technology to help with the treatment of PTSD and we look forward to seeing where else they might be able to use it in the future.

Keystones: A Quick League Guide To Forge Your Way to Victory

Pre-season Update: Blue Essence and Keystones

It’s almost the end of the year which means another season will end for League of Legends. With Season 8 coming up, Garena made some few changes with our beloved online game. We already have Blue Essence instead of IP and the Keystones (say goodbye to our good ol’ Runes and Masteries).

Before we discuss the different Keystones, let’s talk about Blue Essence for a start. Instead of using IP to buy from the store, we will use Blue Essence. Essence still works the same as IP and there are some featured items which you can purchase using your Blue Essence. I actually got I lot of Skin Wards using the essence.

What are Keystones?

Keystones replaced the Runes and Masteries that we got used to when playing League of Legends. Having this change made a huge impact to the League community. Some may say that it’s a bad change, others may want this new feature.

There are 5 different groups of Keystones. We have Precision, Domination, Sorcery, Resolve and Inspiration.



The first Keystone improves attack and sustains damage. This Keystone includes Press the Attack which makes an enemy champion vulnerable after hitting them three consecutive times. It also has Lethal Tempo which allows you to temporarily exceed the attack speed limit. Lastly, is Fleet Work which makes attacking and moving build Energy Stacks. When your champion reach 100 stacks, your next attack will heal you and you will be granted increased MS.



Let’s move on to the second Keystone which is Domination. It grants Burst Damage and Target Access to a champion. Under this Keystone are Electrocute, Predator and Dark Harvest. For Electrocute, Bonus Adaptive Damage is granted when you hit an enemy champion with three separate attacks or abilities within 3 seconds. Predator on the other hand adds an active effect to your boots. Using Dark Harvest makes champions, large minions, and large monsters drop soul essence.



Empowered Abilities and Resource Manipulation is what you’ll get from Sorcery. We have Summon Aery (who looks like a cute cat :D) which you can send to a target using your attacks and abilities. Second is the Arcane Comet which you can hurl to an enemy champion’s location by damaging them with an ability. Third, Phase Rush which grants you a burst of MS after hitting an enemy with 3 separate attacks or abilities.



The fourth Keystone is called Resolve which gives you Durability and Crowd Control. Three parts of this are: Grasp of the Undying, Aftershock and Guardian. Grasp of the Undying heals you, increases your health permanently every 4 seconds of your next attack. Aftershock grants you additional defenses after immobilizing an enemy. Guardian grants a shield to you and your ally.



This is actually my favorite Keystone. It grants you Creative Tools and Rule Bending. We have Unsealed Spellbook which allows you to change Summoner Spells when you’re near your base. Next is the Glacial Augment which slows down your enemy during your first attack. Last is Kleptomancy (my favorite), wherein your first attack grants you gold or other consumables.

There are Keystones which are ready to use in-game but if you want to play around, use this guide to help you build great Keystones and forge your path towards VICTORY.

Acer: Record Your Gaming Experience While Playing

So, you’re playing a game and you had an outstanding game play that you want to brag to your friends — but, they’re not with you to see you play and you weren’t able to record your game. Bummer, right? Us gamers would want to do something about this downside of our gaming life.

Well, let me introduce to you a gadget which will be able to record all your games.

We have the Acer Iconia 1. This tablet has a built-in app called Acer Game Zone. It has a variety of games that you can choose from and it also has a recording feature. Yes fellow gamers! It can record our game play without having to download and install any application at all.

Let’s admit it. No matter how much we want to download application in order to record our games, we’re hesitant to download unknown apps because it might contain some viruses or we can even be hacked! I am honestly scared of these consequences myself. So why not find a safer way to save all our games to show our friends, right?

Almost all Acer tablets have this feature built-in but there are some which doesn’t have this built-in app. But don’t fret! You can still record your game. We can download it from Google Play Store (sorry OIS users T_T). You can find the link of this cool app below.

Garena Releases New Champion for League of Legends

For those League of Legend players out there, it’s time to be happy because they just released the latest addition to their line of champions: ZOE.

As a League of Legends player myself, each new champion excites me and I would wait for my rest day to buy and try it out. Zoe is known to have feelings for Ezreal and is Lux’s rival. But is she all that? Let’s take a peek at the newest champion.

Zoe: The Aspect of Twilight

Zoe may look like a child but don’t be deceived by looks. She can also be a pain in the head like the other champions so let’s talk about her abilities. First is her Passive, it’s called More Sparkles. After Zoe casts a spell, her basic attack deals bonus damage.

Her First skill (Q) is called Paddle Star. This is a skill where Zoe fires a star that deals magic damage. She can re-cast the skill mid-flight to redirect the star to a new position.  The farther the star is, the bigger the damage it makes to the enemy. Zoe’s Second skill (W) is Spell Thief. For an extended period of time, enemy drop spells and Zoe can pick them up. Some minions also carry spells or any active item.

Third skill (E) is called Sleepy Trouble Bubble. This is the skill where Zoe throws a bubble which hits the first target. For a duration of time, the hit target will be drowsy until it falls asleep. An asleep enemy champion can’t move or cast a skill. Last but definitely not the least, her Ultimate skill (R) which is portal jump. She briefly teleport to a targeted position and teleport back.


I have already been playing Zoe in Mid and as a Support but I’d go for the Support role. It’s a bit hard to harass as Zoe when you play mid but it’s a great setter if you play support.

Destiny 2 Announced & Valkyria Revolution Trailer

Destiny 2 Announced

Destiny 2 was finally confirmed to be in development by the official twitter account. I am looking forward to seeing what Bungie has come up with for its sequel into the the hit game. In addition, Valkyria Revolution was given a trailer and it looks like a new take on the Tactical RPG action of the original games. I just can’t wait to play the game and get an elo boost service to enjoy it more!

Update (3/28): A teaser trailer was just released and posted below!

Update (3/30): Destiny 2 Trailer Released!

While the first Destiny was lacking in content and a deeper progression of skills, I do sincerely hope Destiny 2 provides a better storyline and the extra wow factor to keep my interest. I enjoyed the first game very much, even with the flaws. If Bungie can show me that they are truly the top AAA game developer I know them to be, then this second game will be amazing!

Valkyria Revolution

I also wanted to mention Valkyria Chronicles and their newest trailer. I’m excited for this game but I wanted to hear from you on what you think about the trailer. I’ve posted it below, you can either leave a comment under the video or send me a message via twitter @SuperSickMedia. Thanks guys!

Latest Injustice 2 Trailers

After the success of Injustice: Gods Among Us, WB Games have geared up to release Injustice 2, which will go live on May 16, 2017.

Not sure if the storyline will continue from the first game, the first had a decent one that I hope will continue. It looks like the second installment will debut even more heroes and villains, along with updated combos and special attacks. From their website:

The line between hero and villain has become blurred as the most epic battle in the DC universe rages on in Injustice 2. While Batman has emerged the victor in his battle against the Regime, a new threat arises and poses the ultimate threat to Earth.

We will keep this post updated the best we can with the latest trailers, video and gameplay to whet your appetite. I am looking forward to this game when it comes out, hopefully I can post a review of it as well. I’m also hoping they fixed some of the bugs from the first game with some characters who could spam abilities and combos all day so that there can be fair online fights for once. But we shall see.

How about you? Are you looking forward to this game? What did you think of the first game, if you played it?

Scalebound Cancelled?!

Note: The video above does contain some swearing, as he’s visibly upset by the news of Scalebound cancelled, as am I. You can read my thoughts swear-free down below if you’d like.

Once in the land of “exclusive console games”, Microsoft and other companies decided to release games that could only be purchased and played on their own gaming system. One of the greatest “exclusive game series” that ever came out was Halo. Microsoft found its cash cow and proceeded to release subsequent games in the franchise until it had milked it dry but decided to keep releasing games anyway. *knock knock* Halo Wars 2 and Halo 5 anyone??

Then a studio came along and released a game that could be used on every gaming system available. That game was “Call of Duty” and as much as we hate that stupid game, they are still spitting out games and cashing in big on the success that can be had in a multi-console game franchise.

With the background in place, I can now comfortably begin my rant. Before I do, watch this visually impressive trailer that not only shows great graphics but also some great gameplay.

Looks like a great game eh? Well I hate to burst your bubble, but Microsoft in their infinite wisdom decided to cancel it. It was scheduled to be a holiday 2016 release, but they delayed it and then just this week up and canned the whole game. Here’s what I don’t get, this is a finished game. Look at it, it is essentially finished except for a couple finishing touches. What really irks me is the fact that I had shelled out money for a brand new Xbox One just so I could have my hands on this “exclusive game” when it came out. Thanks Microsoft for cancelling Scalebound.

The Good

I was really looking forward to controlling a dragon to fight alongside me, having it focus on certain aspects while I ran around with my own ranged and melee attacks. The fact that I could customize the look of my dragon appealed to me as well, though knowing me I would have colored the whole thing blue. Just for the sake of my favorite color and another well known dragon of the Inheritance Cycle series.

Visually, I was impressed. It all looked stellar. Like this was a fantasy game I could get behind and enjoy as much as Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. The fire looked crisp, the scenery was well made and the fighting graphics looked good as well.

Co-op teamplay. This looked interesting, along with the idea that the players I fought alongside brought their own dragons to the game made it feel like we could gear up for massive battles and get some hard earned loot and experience at the end of it.

The Bad

In all fairness, I was all positive for this game. The only cons I could see were elements where your dragon didn’t listen to you and did whatever it wanted to, or random bugs that would crash the game or the dreaded unskippable cutscenes.

But lets be honest, who didn’t want to see something funny happen like your dragon running off and doing something stupid? I could understand the AI getting confused and messing up at times, but that’s what makes for some good laughs to post on YouTube and remember that it is just a game. So have some fun.

What Went Wrong

Here’s what I think went wrong. Microsoft cancelled Scalebound for these reasons:

  1. It wasn’t going to generate much in sales.
  2. The AI Dragon was too buggy.
  3. The story wasn’t good enough.
  4. No player vs player battles/little multiplayer experience OR
  5. An Intern accidentally flushed the original copy down the toilet.

Out of all the reasons I listed, I think 5 is most promising. Think of it this way, Microsoft has plenty of money already. They also have enough common sense to have solid AI and story to back up their games, nothing new to prove there unless this AI Dragon really did have problems. But from what I could see, nothing was wrong with the dragon. Maybe some higher up whined enough about no multiplayer experience and that’s what killed the game, since it didn’t seem to have much else besides co-op. Truthfully, for me it didn’t need any multiplayer aspect. I didn’t want to fight against other people, I came to fight off these huge beasts so I could be the “strongest dragon rider there ever was.” Not every game needs multiplayer to be fun, remember that Microsoft.

In the end, I wasted money getting a system for a game that will never be released now. Scalebound was the ONLY game I was looking forward to in 2017, I wanted to play it that badly. Sorry, I don’t care about Crackdown 3, State of Decay 2, Sea of Thieves or whatever else exclusive garbage you have coming out. You’ll find me back on my PlayStation 4 enjoying the games I already have. Now to figure out what to do with this Xbox One, should I use it for golf practice or sell it… hmm…

Were you looking forward to Scalebound? Did you help test the game? Was the game that bad or did it have a chance at greatness? Leave a comment! Thanks guys 🙂
