What are the best Retro, Magical and Sci-Fi Game Bows Ever?

February 5, 2018 by Cheats.co Staff - Leave a comment

Who doesn’t love the good old bow and arrow in a video game? From Zelda to Crysis there’s a bow and arrow featured on just about every platform imaginable.

Retro games have bows, sci-fi games have bows, there’s magical variants and just plain weird bows. There’s a host of crossbows and there have been many attempts to make archery a fun sport on both consoles and PC’s.

The folks at targetcrazy.com have compiled a list of the best 50. If you want to see the whole list and the winners in each category, take a look at the full article here, but scroll down to see a neat graphic that shows their top 20 overall.

The Sacred Bow – Kid Icarus – The Retro King?

The favorite bow from older games is the enhanced Sacred Bow wielded by Pit in Kid Icarus. While he starts out wielding a short-range bow, the Sacred Bow lets him fire arrow much faster and farther. Pit has an unlimited supply of arrows and can use Fire Arrows to deal more damage. By the time Pit returned in Kid Icarus: Uprising, the bow was only one of many weapons he used, but in the original two games, it was his primary weapon of choice. (more…)

The Fall of Destiny 2? Why People Are Giving Up on Bungie’s Latest Title

October 23, 2017 by Cheats.co Staff - 11 Comments

Destiny 2 launched to rave reviews, happy customers and near-complete domination of the video-games market. It broke a number of sales records and saw its active player-base hit over 3 million users. The launch was nothing short of massive and Bungie enjoyed great success with its Destiny sequel, but this inflated success appears to short lived.

The console population of Destiny 2 is dwindling, with the player rate drop off picking up speed rapidly and showing no signs of leveling out just yet. From its peak of 3.5 million active users, the game is currently down to 1.8 million — its audience nearly slashed in half over the course of just one month.

While the game is soon to be released on the PC, which will likely see user numbers climb (briefly at least) the dramatic drop in players does make us wonder what happened to the popularity of Bungie’s big 2017 title.

So why are so many people leaving Destiny 2 and not coming back? (more…)

The Future of Visceral’s Star Wars Game

October 19, 2017 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

On October 17, EA announced the closure of Visceral Games, the developer behind games such as Dead Space, Battlefield Hardline, and Dante’s Inferno. This came as disappointing news to fans of Visceral’s titles… and also to Star Wars fans looking forward to the story-driven Star Wars game Visceral had in development.

Visceral’s Star Wars Game

We didn’t know a lot about Visceral’s Star Wars game, but what we did know was intriguing. It was a linear, story-driven action-adventure game set in between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. The creative director was Amy Hennig, most famous for her work on the Uncharted series, which led to much speculation that it would be an Uncharted-style game in the Star Wars universe.

Many fans theorized it might star Han Solo, while others viewed it as possibly the closest we’d get to the cancelled Star Wars 1313. Only a tiny amount of footage and concept art was ever shown, at E3 2016. (more…)

7 Reasons Why: You Should Play Indie Games

October 9, 2017 by Cheats.co Staff - Leave a comment

Indie

The number of games that are available to the public is bewildering!

On steam alone, there are 17,801 games accessible to download – that doesn’t include all the games that are exclusive for console.

What’s interesting is that the vast majority of these games on Steam are Indie Games.

Indie Studios typically produce shorter games with a small team of developers and a limited budget.

Seeing as they have less of a budget, the instalments in this genre are stereotyped to be bad quality games and therefore receive a bad reception.

However,

While not every indie game is perfect, plenty of them offer more enjoyment and detail than some AAA games!

Who are we to tell you to play these games?! (more…)

A Gamer’s Thoughts: May I Cheat, Daddy?

September 27, 2017 by Cheats.co Staff - Leave a comment

Stressed man playing on pad

I must admit something, sometimes I do cheat in games.

Not in online games, but sometimes in offline games. And, I only do it when I have beaten the game before.

But, I started to think, what effect does cheating have on the gaming industry? Let’s look at cheating in video games, shall we? Before I give you my thoughts, I’d love you to write your own opinions on the content of the article in the comment section down below.

Cheating in online play

In my first matches on Halo online, I was dying left and right. People called me names but I honestly didn’t mind. After a few rounds, I became a somewhat valuable asset to the team. After a week or two, I learned a lot about how I play, what my strong suits are and what my weak points are. (more…)

4 of the Greatest Video Game Easter Eggs

September 17, 2017 by Cheats.co Staff - Leave a comment

Easter eggs

Drawing inspiration from the popular children’s game, a video game ‘Easter egg’ is a secret feature, hidden message or inside joke that is often placed within a video game. Unless you’re reading about them on this website, players must put in a high level of game time in order to discover the hidden message or unlockable secrets within the game. They are often discovered by serious gamers who devote enough time to fully exploring every aspect of their favorite title.

We’ve seen a lot of great Easter eggs over the years, but here are those Easter eggs we consider to be some of the absolute best. Sometimes Easter eggs are just to keep us on our toes, a friendly nod to fellow developers and something to make us smile. Other times, Easter eggs can add another layer to the story, frighten us, help us. Whatever it might be, Easter Eggs help video gamers feel connected to the developers and the game as a whole.

In-Depth : Final Fantasy 15’s (FFXV) Luna (Lunafreya)

January 14, 2017 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

Final Fantasy XV is now available for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, and one of the most divisive characters has proven to be Lunafreya.

FFXV-Luna

Lunafreya Nox Fleuret

Lunafreya Nox Fleuret, or Luna, is the princess of Tenebrae, a kingdom taken over by the Niflheim Empire years prior to the start of the game.

She is also the youngest Oracle in history. Final Fantasy XV’s Oracles are people with the power to speak with the gods and cleanse the world. According to legend, the Astral Bahamut chose the first Oracle and gave her his trident. Ever since then, the power of the Oracle has been passed down from generation to generation.

The Oracle’s goal is to stop the Starscourge, a plague that lengthens the nights and allows demons to appear. The Oracle keeps the Starscourge at bay until the True King, from the line of Lucis, can stop it forever.

Luna and Noctis were childhood friends, and although they were separated before the events of the game and haven’t seen each other in years, they still share a strong connection and communicate with each other through written messages. (more…)

10-billion-wives-tsundere-wifeThe game 10 Billion Wives for iOS and Android has a simple objective, which you might guess from its title: marry as many wives as possible.

Don’t be mistaken, though. This isn’t a dating sim or galge. Instead, it’s a clicker-style game. In 10 Billion Wives, you earn Love by tapping the screen. Your wives provide a certain amount of LPS (Love Per Second), and you also have an LPT rate (Love Per Tap).

These rates increase with upgrades and when your wives level up, and you can use love to unlock more wives. They range from the Apron Wife to the Tsundere Wife to the Soldier Wife… there’s a Zombie Wife… Angel Wife… you get the picture.

If you’re playing 10 Billion Wives, here are a few tips and tricks you help you along. (more…)

Lifeline: Will 150 Rads (Overnight) Kill You?

December 17, 2016 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

Lifeline - Big Fish GamesThe game Lifeline for iOS and Android (Big Fish Games) puts you in contact with Taylor, an astronaut stranded on an alien moon. With Taylor’s survival in your hands, you must communicate and provide the correct answers to help him survive.

(Note: Taylor’s gender is ambiguous, but we’ve decided to refer to the character as a he.)

One of the most common questions in Lifeline comes about when Taylor has to decide whether to sleep in the cold or by the reactor. The reactor is radioactive, and he’ll get 150 rads if he sleeps by it. This leads to many players worry about one simple thing: will 150 rads kill you?

The short answer is no. Taylor will freeze to death if you pick the other option, so you need to let him sleep by the reactor. (more…)
