For years, parents have protested video games for being too violent, for the lack of educational value they provide and how they have such a negative impact on our kids. Some even argue that kids should give up on gaming altogether, in favour of reading, and that is why I’ve written an educational article to get your kids off of those pesky video games.

The Anal Probe – Destroy All Humans!

fun-game-weapons

This was by far the funniest weapon in the Destroy All Humans! franchise. It was a small green and black gun that you would charge up and fire at unsuspecting humans (or cows) A fully charged shot would have the victim running frantically into traffic with a little green tail flailing behind them, the victim would collapse moments later, followed by their brain rocketing out of their head and bouncing around the floor… Now that I think about it, it really doesn’t sound as funny as it does horrific.

Type-1 Energy Sword – HALO

energy-sword-fun-video-game-weapons

This entry isn’t even necessarily about the Energy Sword, it’s more about what the sword represents. I imagine most people will agree that catching even a glimpse of Halos Energy Sword will open the floodgates for memories of late night split screen games of infection. Or, adding all of your mates into an Xbox Live Party and designing the perfect map on Forge Mode for a game of infection, only to find out that its 3am, you didn’t get to test the map and your mum is now shouting that you have to be up for school in 4 hours. Yup, what a great weapon the Energy Sword is.

Wunderwaffe DG-2 – Call of Duty: Nazi Zombies

zombies-fun-game-weapons

Whenever I see the name I can hear the bzzzzsst noise it makes once you’ve lined up a small crowd of zombies and let it rip. This was the weapon for getting you out of a pinch and didn’t have the unforgiving ‘splash back’ effect that the Ray Gun had. You were THE MAN if you were rocking this and the Ray Gun.

Shark-O-Matic – Saints Row the Third

saints-row-third-fun-video-games

Obviously I could have picked most weapons from the Saints Row series, but nothing quite beats flinging fish guts at your enemies and watching a hefty sewer Jaws rip your victim to shreds. Shooting the Shark-O-Matic for the first time was one of those rare, holy s%!£ moments in video games and it will stick with me forever.

Shower Head – Dead Rising

incredibly-fun-video-game-weapons

This game was really good at creeping me out, it still does now. I’m not sure about the logistics of it, but the shower head was a pretty fun weapon to use on zombies. Just hit x and boom, you’re a zombie plumber.

Fat Man – Fallout

fallout-fun-weapons

Am I the only person that couldn’t use the Fat Man without getting crippled? No matter how high I would aim, I’d damage a limb or two. This is the king of weapons and you officially haven’t played Fallout until you’ve let loose on Rivet City with the Fat Man.

The Environment – A lot of games

fun-environmental-weapon-kills

Let’s be honest, this is the best way to finish a fight. From kicking a man (or woman) off of a building to throwing them headfirst into a fish tank. Nothing is more satisfying than all of your enemies not only being out cold, but seeing them slumped over bins, park benches and hanging by their shoelaces from lampposts.

Honourable mentions:

Dragon Shouting – Skyrim
GTA 5 cheat‘explosive punches’ – Grand theft auto 5
Every weapon – Borderlands
High Frequency Blade – Metal Gear Solid 2

Every year, EA SPORTS bring out a demo of the latest FIFA game, a few weeks before the full game is due for release, and every year the same question mark stalks the series.

With the Standard edition of FIFA 20 due for release on September 27, and the Ultimate and Champions edition due for release on September 24, EA SPORTS released the FIFA 20 demo, leaving fans wondering the same question.

Is FIFA 20 any different from the previous games?

Well, Players have reported the base game to feel slower and more realistic, with an improved, responsive feel to the defence aspect of the game. it’s a very similar visual experience with some fun, but somewhat gimmicky ad-ons slapped on the side. 

fifa-20-volta

One of those ad-ons comes in the shape of Volta, essentially a vibrant and modernised FIFA Street, with it’s own story in which the cutscenes will make you cringe harder than Grandma singing Justin Timberlake’s ‘Sexy Back’ at the dinner table. 

Although the cutscenes come across forced and ham-fisted, the gameplay is incredibly fun. With snappy passes, styling on your opponent and using your environment to set up a friendship-destroying volley, this fast-paced game mode will keep you glued to your sofa for ‘just one more’ in the true couch co-op fashion we’ve always loved FIFA for.
The addition of ‘House Rules’ will make games even more refreshing, giving players the opportunity to modify the match in a fun and almost Rocket League styled battle for the most goals, sadly no battle cars though.
If this really is the return of FIFA Street, having the song ‘Stand Up Tall’ by Dizzee Rascal whilst navigating the menu would be a welcomed return in my books.

Of course, the ever-famous microtransactions are back. Or more affectionately known as FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT). 
Young players will be given the chance to gamble the money they don’t have on cards they’ll never get, just like previous titles. It’s worth mentioning that Ultimate Team microtransactions now make up a staggering 28% of EA’s net revenue, which surpasses the revenue made from FIFA itself. 

ultimate-team-microtransactions

After scooping up the exclusive licensing rights for PES 2020, rival, Pro Evo has left FIFA 20 portraying the Italian giants Juventus as ‘Piemonte Calcio’. So don’t be surprised when you pass the ball to superstar Christopher Ronoldo.

FIFA-20-REVIEW-PES2020

To summarise, FIFA 20 is certainly moving in the right direction in terms of fresh gameplay and isn’t completely a copy and paste job. Volta is A LOT of fun and feels like EA have finally fixed pacing, however, it’s desperation to seem cool, hurts it slightly.  FUT should come with a serious warning and overall the base game has a major realism overhaul without sacrificing the fun experience we’ve come to expect.

Did you get a chance to play the demo? If so, what did you think? Let me know in the comments or reach out by Email.

Cute Pokemon That Would Destroy The World

8 Cute Pokemon That Would Destroy The World Just By Existing

Whether you watched the anime series, collected the cards, played the games or like me, all of the above, you most likely have a favourite Pokemon. Although we all want our own, real-life pocket monsters for whatever reason, there’s a handful of these cute little guys that would for sure, destroy the world just by existing.

Magcargo

Magcargo is an insanely cute little guy, and having it as a pet wouldn’t be completely… Farfetch’d, as people (for some reason) keep giant snails as pets. The only downside would be that everything you know and love would have evaporated way before you even stepped foot in the pet store.
Although he has a heart warming smile and big eyes that say ‘hug me’ (Don’t!) his body temperature can get up to 10,000°C which is almost double the temperature on the surface of the sun. So maybe just get a cat? 
Danger Level – 10/10

Muk

We’re all reminded on a regular basis that we are slowly destroying our planet. That said, imagine being the guy that owns a Muk- the poster child for global warming. Not only does this living bio hazard make people severely sick on contact but any plant life in close proximity will begin to wilt and die- leaving the landscape barren. It takes around 3 years for new life to grow (and that’s providing another Muk doesn’t stroll by.) Although he looks like he’d give a warm and squishy hug, this Pokemon could do some real damage to the planet
Danger Level 8/10

Exploud

I mean, just look at his name… it’s the combination of explode and loud. Let me tell you why you don’t want to find yourself living near an Exploud nest. Not only will you never get any sleep because of the incredibly loud noises they make, but you’ll be killed in an earthquake, because of the incredibly loud noises they make. 

According to its official Pokedex entry on Bulbapedia Exploud can be heard from over six miles away, so if you did live near it’s nest, you would soon lose your house and your hearing.
Danger Level – 6/10

Can you think of any Pokemon that I missed? Let me know in the comments or reach out by Email, I’ll be sure to update the blog with your suggestion.

Really Fun Couch Co-op Games

Really Fun Couch Co-op Games

Single player games are fun, but sometimes we just want to work with (or against) our loved ones. Here’s some of our favourite couch co-op games.

(More games to be added)

Overcooked 1 & 2

Remember how everyone used to say ‘Monopoly ends friendships’? Well, Overcooked is like ten consecutive games of Monopoly, ending with a game of Cranium. In short, if you value the relationship between you and player 2, you should either stay clear of this game, or, well out of each others way whilst playing.

However, as rage inducing as it is to bump into your girlfriend four times until plummeting into a river whilst holding your beautifully prepared tomato salad, it’s actually incredibly fun. It’s near enough impossible to play alone, yet somehow feels even harder with everyone running around pushing each other and chopping the same onion.

Even though you quickly forget that you’re supposed to be working together, this is a co-op game for up to 4 people.

Gangbeasts

gang-beasts

If you enjoy ragdoll physics and dressing up like animals, this ones for you.
Gangbeasts will easily leave you and your friends in fits of laughter as you fight each other (and the controls) to come out on top in this king of the hill style brawler.
Up to 4 people. 

Rocket League

If in the unlikely event you’ve never played Rocket League before, the game combines cars and football in a winning formula that instantly hooks you. Two teams of up to four RC battle cars frantically drive around vibrant arenas while trying to bash an oversized ball into a goal that explodes whenever someone scores.

Presumably, the developers watched a lot of Top Gears ‘Car Football‘ and thought it would work well in a video game. Fortunately, it does.
Up to 4 people.

Why Raiden is a Great Protagonist

Why Raiden From Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty is the Perfect Protagonist

When in the company of hardcore gamers, there are certain topics too controversial to share your true opinion on. Saying something like ‘Don’t you think they should stop releasing Skyrim on new platforms?’ will earn you a swift (and well deserved) punch in the throat. 

With that being said, I’m going to open a very big, very metaphorical can of worms and say Raiden from Metal Gear Solid 2 is the perfect protagonist.

After the initial tanker infiltration mission having the player control Snake to document a possible Metal Gear. Hideo Kojima caused an eruption of anger amidst the Metal Gear community, after a slow ascending elevator revealed the protagonist to be a blonde, long haired non Snake. 

mgs2-raiden-protagonist

For anyone that hasn’t played any Metal Gear games and can’t relate, just imagine you’ve purchased FIFA 20, loaded it up to find that Arsenal have been replaced by a year 11 football team.
Admittedly, marketing the game with Snake as the protagonist was a kick in the teeth for any hardcore MGS fans out there, but lets be honest, Raidens only crime was that he wasn’t Snake.

mgs2-raiden

Don’t get me wrong, Raiden is an insufferable brag who considers his VR training to be on par with real world experience. However, it’s his inexperience and arrogance that make him so relatable to the player controlling him. Raiden is an opportunity for players to get an outsiders perspective on Snake.
As Raiden stumbles his way through each level, more of his own personal story unfurls, and you cant help but humanise him whilst respecting his dedication to the mission and his meticulous yet sometimes sporadic strategy in completing it.

By the time the credits roll, the player will have traversed a gripping narrative and shot a vampire in the face, fully accepting Raiden as the seasoned professional he always claimed to be.

And he’s now a sword wielding NINJA CYBORG…What else do you need in a protagonist?

Did I miss something? Or do you think I’m completely wrong? 
Head to the comments and have a rant.
