About two months ago I wanted to create a massive guide for a video game. The inspiration came when I worked a bit on my other Fiction-Guides as well as reading on Paradox Interactive’s Amazon books. I thought, “I could do that!” but I needed a topic I knew well, and I also wanted to write on a popular topic. What did I choose? Mount and Blade.
Another Fiction-Guide from myself. In this case I tried to imagine Bain getting in contact with a hardware supplier, in order to obtain guns and other equipment. Those familiar with the game would note how much of this information is accurate and how much of it is fluff. In general I tried to make all of the information as useful as possible while also making it feel “fun to read”. If you are not overly interested in such writing check out our normal Payday 2 – Weapons Guide.
With the release of the much anticipated Grand Theft Auto V, opinions have been diverse and hotly contested. And with good reason. There’s a lot to consider. The size and detail of the map, for instance, versus how much of it is you actually use. The social commentary on police, what with having a wanted star granting the police in game the right to shoot you dead. Skyrocketing cost of healthcare. And the inordinate difficulty in making enough money to survive let alone thrive. I can spend the entire day hunting and make maybe $1,000 for my trouble, but if getting mauled by a mountain lion at the end of the day nets me $1,500 in medical bills, then I’m in my pocket for the day’s work. And, for the danger they present, illegal ventures don’t necessarily pay much better. So we’ve put together a little guide looking at ways to make money, how to maximize your profit, and what to ignore.
Company of Heroes featured one of the most prominent tanks of the 2nd World War, the Panther Tank. This Guide about the Panther Tank is meant to be an actual in-game guide for Company of Heroes 2 as it is a short piece of fiction. It was my first experiment with trying to combine creative writing with creating a guide for a video game. You might had seen many of our guides here, and while informative I am trying a new angle on Guide writing, and this is one of these examples. The other can be viewed here.
Company of Heroes 2 has added a number of new elements to its gameplay. One of them is the Winter. This is more of a map-type than strictly speaking a mechanic, but one leads to the other. As stated in our Company of Heroes 2 Basics Guide, Winter maps tend to offer new challenges. You have to maintain certain lanes between the front and your base. You need to take into account local buildings, frozen lakes and fires. The battles become not only about tactical superiority but also attrition. Infantry is mainly affected by the winter but tanks too cannot feel perfectly safe from its “charm”.
Looking for some general information on Payday 2 weapons? You may find what you are after, right here. Payday 2 has a decent selection of different weapons. Shotguns, rifles and one semi-automatics (as well as saw) from your primary weapons. Pistols, SMGs and shotguns from your secondaries. We will try to discuss each of the weapons available to you (including the saw) so that you may decide what you prefer using. Each weapons has its strengths and weaknesses, so if you were hoping for “Super Guns” there are a few good guns, but nothing without some type of flaw. Looking for a general Payday 2 guide? Look no further. We also recently released this Fiction-Guide which has a lot of fluff. None of this is official information, just a bit of creative improvisation.
If you are not familiar with the Payday Series, or if you are having troubles understanding some of the game’s concepts, this guide is intended for you. The idea behind this Payday 2 guide is to provide you with all the necessary information to understand what the game, and your crew, might expect from you. This is not a guide that will tell you how to stealth every single heist, that is something you will have to figure out on your own. However, with this guide, you will understand some of the concepts in the game that will allow you to stealth.
Looking for a weapon’s guide? We have one.
War of the Roses is not the simplest game out there. It’s on the level of Mount and Blade, which makes it a mildly difficult game when it comes to PvP. Aside from directional combat and blocking you also have types of armor, different weapons, Perks and more. In other words, you have countless different possibilities but that does not always translate into effectiveness. You could have a bowman in heavy armor, but a bow might be less optimal than a crossbow. You could have a a longsword for a sidearm but that does not mean that you will kill enemies in heavy armor. There are many different tid-bits here and there so the purpose of this short guide is to help you a bit, if you need the extra help. Some of this knowledge might be “common” to experienced players but if you are new this will help you greatly.
A position of command is a position of great responsibility. Unless you do not really care for your position that is… That might lead to disaster, sooner or later. Your skills and abilities in Natural Selection 2, as the commander, are the difference between victory and defeat. If you played NS2 long enough you would realise that without a good, competent commander nobody on your team will have any fun, because you will be squashed around every corner. Of course, into account we also have to take the abilities of the individual “soldiers”, but Marines with assault rifles cannot defeat a fully expanded hive, no matter how skilled they are.
The purpose of this guide is to provide some useful tips when playing as either the Alien or Marines commander. Some of these tips apply to both sides, though they differ in usefulness. If this is what you are after, read on! If you need more details on any of the aliens, abilities or marines, check out the Natural Selection 2 Wiki.
Ghost Recon: Online has only three classes. It might not seem like much, but with each class you have a decent choice in equipment, allowing you to customize your “Ghost” in any way you like. In this guide we will discuss the different classes in Ghost Recon: Online, their strengths and weaknesses. We will also look over their Devices and potential strategies. Hopefully with this guide you will learn that every class can multi-task, in a number of ways.
