    Spellbreak - magic BR

    It looks really cool. They just lifted the NDA on the closed beta so people started streaming it. It's a battle royale but instead of guns you've got magic. It looks like it has an extremely high skill cap. Very fast paced with a lot of projectiles. It reminds me of Tribes and Smite...

    Elder Scrolls Online is not a generic MMORPG

    A lot of people are saying Elder Scrolls Online will just be another generic MMORPG WoW clone. I completely disagree. I don't like typical MMORPGs for the same reasons I don't like most RPGs. I liked Skyrim because it isn't a typical RPG and Elder Scrolls Online looks like it will keep...

    I have always been interested in game boards because the keys are laid out straight and it should be more ergonomic for playing games but it has always turned me off that they don't use mechanical switches. Something like the one pictured above is what I am looking for but with...
