Gulp is super hard, seriously. I almost went insane trying to beat him until I finally “got it.” The reason Gulp is so hard, compared to the rest of the games, is that his orb attack fires in front of you and in Reignited it’s very good at predicting what in front of you is. So here is how to beat him and not stress over the battle. Oh real quick, check out the cheat codes. 99 lives makes it easy to retry this battle. If you’ve 100% the game and are here for the achievement, use Superflame: https://twitter.com/SpyroTheDragon/status/1083067608881160200 How to Avoid the Charge Run right through him and to the left or right a bit, whatever is closer to being away from him. Don’t run away from him, just charge right at him. He’ll jump before you reach him and then you can just move left or right to…

Persona 5 / Persona 5 Royal (the updated “golden” version of P5) is an amazingly fun game and unlike Persona 3/4, it’s so much more forgiving in a lot of areas. If you want to play without a walkthrough, which makes the game boring and tedious to get through each day checking and if you mess up anywhere you’re off the boat, then this guide is for you. The problem is that it’s hard to play the game without a walkthrough, because the game is so large and there is so much to do. Here’s the deal – to be time efficient you should spoil the trophies / achievements to know how to get them, but that’s on your second playthrough. You have to have two playthroughs to 100% the game. Therefore you can play your first playthrough however you want to and if you don’t get everything that’s fine.…

There is a lot going on right now about the Amiibo and Animal Crossing: Horizons. A lot of “thin” articles that are stacked referral links to buy them, but what can you do with them and which ones should you buy? First, all Animal Crossing Amiibo do something (i.e. gives you a poster), but not all of them invite the character or allow you to take photo shoots with them. The Amiibo cards (Series 1-4 and Welcome sets) allow you to do everything, posters, photo shoot and invite village animals to your camp. Sanrio cards and the physical figures, including the smash figures only allow for posters. Updates will improve functionality moving forward, although the Isabelle smash Amiibo will work for photo shoot. So if you want to buy something, look for the card packs while they’re still cheap. At launc they’ll likely skyrocket in price.

SMITE is bigger than ever. Wielding one seriously dedicated and talented fan base, parent company Hi-Rez Studios recently launched SMITE into its sixth season. With the SMITE World Championship continuing to dish out massive $1 million prize pools, players are getting more and more hyped with each ensuing tournament. Just to spice things up more, the creative team behind the massive franchise continues to throw in new playable characters for gamers to enjoy. With that in mind, the time has come to take a look at the Game Truth original SMITE season 6 tier list. Tier List Descriptions Tier SS — These characters are brutally overpowered. Tier S+ — These gods are top tier, in that they are often first pick choices for their roles.Tier S — While somewhat less powerful than S+ tier characters, these gods are still highly suggested.Tier A+ — These gods are great, safe picks. While…

This is a rather short guide, because I have a lot of anxiety when I have a new character I want to run through raid finder and there is a lot of toxic people who instead of going, oh you’re just trying to get some gear, instead go “LOL NOOB” and many other more horrible things and that sucks. So let’s talk about preparing, so you can at least avoid any embarrassment when you load into the raid finder. The first thing to do is understand you’re going to suck if you don’t have gear and that’s totally fine and nothing anyone says matters, as long as you’re DPS or you’re a few months into an expansion and picked healer. If you roll as a tank into raid finder in the minimum required gear, you’re going to have a horrible time. We’ll talk about tanking in a bit. Next you’re…

Defender Idle is available on Kongregate as a free-to-play idle game. It has a pretty bad score for a myriad of reasons, mostly relating to its launch, but it’s actually a solid idle game with a pretty big community around it, but I like it! The nice thing about Defender Idle is that progression moves swiftly and they throw a lot of mechanics at you to progress. We’re going to focus mostly on the early game, so that you can have fun unlocking all the cool features that come once you setup actual idle play. Starting Out Starting out you’re going to have the university, where you learn upgrades after you “surrender” or “lose.” The bulletin board which is daily quests. The school to unlock more turrets and higher levels of those turrets. The workshop, where you can upgrade your turrets as they level up. Finally the research center, where…

GameStop is the last vestige of brick and mortar electronic gaming stores. It is a business of acquisitions, claiming most other large competitors and merging them into the fold and is on every YouTube and blog’s “Top 10 Companies Soon to Pull a Blockbuster” for the last six months to a year or so. Are they right? Is GameStop about to go under? I honestly am not some kind of market wizard, I can’t say if their current plans will save them or not, but we can talk about what’s gotten them to this point, in context of video game sales (not the whole who bought who what when and where, lots of that is already out there). https://www.google.com/search?q=gamestop+stock So this chart pretty much tells a very, very interesting story. The company went public in 2002 at around $10 USD a share. In 2002, we were still in the world…

Modern day VR started back in 2013 with the Oculus Dev Kit 1 (Oculus DK1), which was then updated and re-released in 2014 to backers as the DK2. In 2014 the retail Oculus was released and the Vive and the “Windows Mixed Reality” headsets soon followed. Originally, headsets were plagued by slow refresh screens or a myriad of issues that caused motion sickness in games and skeptical developers who didn’t want to develop for a platform that required $399 or more for a user to play, plus have a beefy PC gaming rig on top of that. So where are we in 2020? Well, in sort of an interesting and weird spot. VR is more alive than ever before, with VR experiences in real life being the “new arcades” and consumer VR headsets reaching mass adoption, but it’s not exactly a success down the line. Consumer VR Headsets (Oculus &…

The year was circa 2002. Ragnarok Online was getting long in the tooth and I was invited into a mystical world that existed only until 2005, which was Dark Age of Camelot. The entire game itself was I would argue harder than Dark Souls. Soloing anything was next to near impossible and leveling required a group and lots of patience. FFXI, while not my cup of tea, was in many ways similar and players have similar opinions. The point of the game, the success, came from community. Building community with like minded players who wanted to sit and chat and play a video game together was your reward. It wasn’t power. It wasn’t fame. It wasn’t prize money. It was friendship, something we’ve long long lost in online gaming. To level, you would have to have a stereotypical archetype group of a tank, healer and DPS. The tank could only…

Game Truth isn’t going to do an end of the year list or end of decade list because they’re just bad and boring. Game of the Year I guess is an alright concept, but only if there is some kind of panel that’s voting on it and it’s not just a single writers trite opinion or based off of some kind data-set pulled off of Steam and even then I honestly don’t care. You shouldn’t care either. Game of the Year is the game you most enjoyed, not some poll or some writer telling you what it is. Likewise, these lists come year after year and are as infectious as those “Top 30 Things You Didn’t Know You Couldn’t Live Without” which are long lists of Amazon referral links designed to get you to buy something, no matter what and then cash in on your other purchases as well. So…
