Reading Time: 2 minutes
So we have to talk about the latest reveal. There is so Much Hype these days for The WitcherWe have a Netflix original series happening soon. The games were awesome to play, so why not put Geralt of Rivia in Soul Calibur VI.

 

Geralt will be a guest fighter for the newest edition of the Soul Calibur franchise. The fighter reveal comes on the heels of the new Nightmare character introduction and Groh showcase video. You can see The Witcher character in the video below.

 

 

Geralt of course will have access to his two swords while fighting, ability-enhancing potions and a few Signs. There will also be a stage based on The Witcher training grounds of Kaer Morhen. It will be included in all versions of Soulcalibur VI game. Doug Cockle, the English voice actor for Geralt, has recorded additional lines for Soulcalibur VI, and the song “Hunt or be Hunted” from The Witcher 3 soundtrack will accompany Geralt in combat.

 

 

 

With the reveal of Geralt, Soulcalibur VI now has 9 confirmed characters on its roster. They are as follows:
  • Geralt (Guest Character from The Witcher 3)
  • Grøh
  • Ivy
  • Kilik
  • Mitsurugi

  • Jacker (Maxi’s lover)
  • Zasalamel (DLC)

There was also a photo on Reddit that seemed to be leaked and show characters for the upcoming game. Perhaps this is why the developers are taking there time with the game release so that they can change the characters.

Rainbow Six Siege: Outbreak – Breaks Records

Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Destroy Some Aliens and Zombies! Rainbow Six: Siege – Outbreak is fun!

Rainbow Six: Siege just continues to delight us. If only destiny could do something similar I would lay it more. Anyways, allow me to digress. The newest zombie update is absolutely Phenomenal. Do not take my word for it though. Just go online and play it. Its so good even my grandma tried to play it. True story. So many people are coming back to play it now as a result and there is good reasons why.

 

 

SteamCharts recorded a high of more than 176,000 players. That’s up from just over 47,000 players one year ago. The first batch of content for season three revolves around Operation Chimera, a Team Rainbow mission to contain a parasitic infection in a remote town in New Mexico. Check out our previous article here about Operation Chimera. Beyond the standard stuff, there are also some stranger enemies, like a zombie witch that spawns new enemies, and an alien who gets stronger as its HP depletes.

 

 

There seems to be an abundance of ammo everywhere which is nice. It seems that you are constantly getting ambushed so running out of ammo hasn’t happened. Similar to the main game, enemies and players can destroy walls and doors, but with that being said players can also barricade doors as well as set traps. Strategizing where to fortify against an incoming onslaught is a big part of surviving which is super important for the more intense combat engagements.

 

 

Really enjoying this mode! I hope we get more like this and with some of the other operators. Surprised it’s three players and not four, but I guess some of the areas are rather small. You get to choose some of your favorite characters so I play as Ash. You only have one month to play so get on it now!

 

 

I’m willing to bet my money though that this wont be just limited. Just the amount of time they must have spent on it would be HUGE – cutscenes (which weren’t even in the base game), tons of new animations, 5 new enemy types with unique attacks, visuals and animations, voice lines, music, story…seriously, removing it in a month would be the dumbest thing ever. So I think they will make it semi-permanent. Especially if they keep seeing the increase in the active daily users continue to increase.

Become a Fortnite Legend With These Tips! It Could Happen!

Reading Time: 5 minutes

 

Become a Fortnite Legend With These Tips! It Could Happen!

 

It can be tough to pick up on all of Fortnite’s idiosyncrasies and hidden bits of information–especially since

the free Battle Royale mode doesn’t include a tutorial. Master these tips you can gain a competitive advantage

over the competition. You will dominate the Battle Royale Mode. (results may vary)

 

 

USE HEADPHONES

 

This might sound obvious or even ridiculous depending on your quality of headphones. However, do not

underestimate the power of your headphones. You can ambush people with a team. Hear those attempting to

sneak up on you and get them first. You can focus in on enemies shooting at you. As with the majority of

games you are at a large disadvantage when listening through the speakers. If there was anything I can say to

do it would be to trade in games at games stop, save your allowance or some from your check and get a good

pair of headphones. It will change your life in this game.

 

SPEED IS ESSENTIAL

 

A good thing to remember as you start a map, is to find as many weapons as you can. You will see a lot of pros

do this. They will choose a spot with a lot of buildings. Learn to work on your fighting abilities. Hiding isn’t the

best strategy. (sometimes it can) Remember that when you fly over hills or areas with higher elevation you will

deploy quicker. So avoid this. Heading for building is the best way. You want to fall to earth quickly and gather

weapons. Beating other players to weapons should always be at the front of your gameplay. Get in, grab

weapons move on to new locations. Get the loot and get the hell out of there.

 

Don’t Pick Up Everything You Come Across

 

Sounds counter intuitive to the last tip I know. It’s all about critically thinking about what essential is and isn’t.

You will find that over time you develop a love for a couple of weapons or that you are more skillful with a

couple of weapons. Usually one medium to long range and a short range one like a shotgun. If you have a

bunch of different pistols for example that you don’t use that can slow you down and lower your level of

effectiveness. When stopping to manage ones inventory it can leave you vulnerable in the game and cause you

to be eliminated.

 

 

Double up on the Favorite Weapons

 

For example, if I have two shotguns in my inventory and am in a battle, what is quicker? Reloading or going for

the other shotgun in your inventory? This of course works best while having them in slots that are adjacent to

the other. This will be a useful skill that will take time to get used to, but we promise you it will be useful.

 

More Wood Please!

 

No, I am not building a log cabin here. It’s just that getting as much as you can carry early on become useful as

it provides protection against your enemies and allows you cover to strategize and destroy those who would

seek to destroy you. Pine trees whose green portions reach close to the ground tend to be the best, but it’s

worth experimenting as you play, to learn where on the map you can get the most materials fastest. The same

is true with other materials. Brick walls yield some brick, but piles of rocks out in the wilderness are even

better. Salvage vehicles and get metal. You get the idea. Experiment with this a little. Experts find that wood is

more flexible when it comes to quickly building protection in firefights. Yes, other materials are harder to

destroy but also take longer to build. So WOOD!

 

 

 

 

Anakin! It’s over, I have the High Ground!

 

Yes, that is a Star Wars Reference. What did you expect, a geek not to be a geek? Come on guys and gals and

everyone else this is Geek Impulse. We are all geeks here. Yes, obtaining someone else’s fort takes skills when

they have the high ground. If you can do this though congrats you are more talented than me! No, but really

though try this, try building upwards while fighting. and if the other player is trying to get above you, try to get

higher or force them to change locations, to take their advantage away. Beware though this though a short way

to beat your enemy it can cause you the fight if the wood is destroyed out from under you.

 

 

 

Watch for Supply Drops and Mark Them

 

Every so often the Fly Bus will drop off supplies. Among other things you are constantly looking out for these

should also be on your list. Be careful though as others might see the same ones. The crates’ drop positions

are marked by blue smoke grenades on the ground, and they float down on balloons once they’re dropped.

These crates contain some of the best loot in the game, including the minigun and rocket launcher, so they’re

definitely worth your attention. So mark it, but again beware that it’s a perfect place for an ambush.

 

 

Become a Meteorologist

 

 

Really though we mean it. The ever-advancing storm–the circle that constantly contracts to make the play

area smaller and smaller–is a danger that you constantly need to avoid in Fortnite. The edge of the storm is a

great place to catch desperate players as they scramble to get to safety. Also, you might be able to duck

through the tough-to-see-through edge early in the match to lose anyone in the eye of the storm who’s

battling you. It can be a gift or a curse. It depends on your level of skill, but be confident and you should do

fine with practice.

 

 

 The Daily Challenges

 

V-Bucks  as you are aware of are Fortnite’s premium currency, which can be used to purchase cosmetic items

to make your character wear cooler clothes or deploy more fun emotes. Playing Fortnite earns you experience

points based on your performance in a match, and each time you earn enough, you level up, which earns you

one “Battle Star.” After grabbing 10 Battle Stars, you advance to a new “tier,” and at certain tiers, you unlock

new emotes and other items. It’s possible to earn tiers faster by completing Daily Challenges. Also if you can

afford to it is recommended to purchase The Battle Pass as it puts you on a different and much more

rewarding tier track, allowing you to earn significantly more cosmetic gear as you level up. The Battle Pass

track also includes V-Bucks!

CODENAMED P7

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

CODENAMED P7

 

The People behind such works as Max Payne and Alan Wake are developing an unknown

project Codenamed P7. The Secret Project is said to be released early to mid 2019. About

the only things at this point that we know about said project is that it will be a third person

shooter game.

The game is set to take place in a new universe created by Remedy Entertainment. It is

said to be an experience that is “Long-Lasting” so that players can have an ongoing

experience.

What got us to the information was the release of their 2017 financial statement by the

company where they said “Remedy said the game—which will be published by Payday 2

publisher 505 Games—has “progressed according to our plans”, leaving pre-production

last year.” The statement also revealed to the public that there is to be another

announcement for a third project later this year. Aside from P7 and this new project,

Remedy is still developing the story mode for upcoming FPS Crossfire 2.

If you the reader have any insight to what’s coming let us know in the comments. Be sure

to check out our YouTube Channel as well.

Rainbow Six: Siege – Operation Chimera

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Rainbow Six: Siege – Operation Chimera

 

 

Gearing for the games third-year post launch, Rainbow Six: Siege will have two new operators added to its team. You will have Finka and Lion. The pare are biohazard specialist and will be bringing some awesome Tech and Chemicals to the gameplay right alongside of the Operation Chimera which is set to update on March 6th. So be on the lookout for that.

 

 

Excerpt from the Ubisoft official website about Rainbow Six: Siege.

 

Lion and Finka – who represent French and Russian counter-terrorism units, respectively, as biohazard specialists. Along with traditional, competitive Rainbow Six Siege multiplayer matches, these new Operators will see their weapons and gadgets put into action in Outbreak, a new four-week co-op event that starts March 6.

 

Ubisoft Montreal took some time during this weekend’s Siege invitational to sit and chat about what Finka and Lion do and what the gameplay will look like. All this after the trailer was officially released which you can see down below.

 

Now let’s dive into the capabilities a little bit:

 

 

Finka: She gives her team a boost with nanobots. She administers a shot right before the operations. These nanobots dissolve in the players’ blood and gives them enhanced abilities. Those abilities are a short boost of health, and faster aim-down-sights and quicker reload speed as well as better control when receiving kickback from recoil. You will definitely see the difference in the recoil control as it looks and feels smoother is very noticeable.

You can see that by Clicking HERE.

 

Lion: With him you get to bring a drone to the fun. The drone can hover above the battlefield and help detect movements. So to avoid being tagged stay still shortly so you don’t get seen.

 

You can see that by Clicking HERE.

 

 

I am confident with these additions that Ubisoft has made, will prove to continue to strengthen the franchise. The fact that Rainbow Six: Siege is going on its third year already and is a fan favorite shows that Ubisoft knew what they were doing with this game and I believe it will continue.
