CSGo Case and Other Updates

On October 18th the most recent update to CS:GO was released. This update introduced the new CS20 case, it added the New Cache to scrimmage mode and added a new sticker capsule.  This update commemorated the 20th anniversary of Counter-Strike franchise that began in 1999. This new case contained 17 new skins for guns and a new type of knife that resembles the classic style knife from Counter-Strike 1.6 and counter-strike source.  The other big part of this update was that it added the long awaited “New Cache” map into the scrimmage gamemode. This map has been hyped up for around 6-8 months now. The “New Cache” is a remake of a map based on a Soviet warehouse just outside of Chernobyl. The map has always had some problems but has always been a favorite of fans.  On March 28th, 2019 Cache was removed from the profesional map pool and…

Clash Of Clans: NEW TOWN HALL?

On November 5th, 2019, the official Clash of Clans Youtube channel came out with a video that many have been awaiting to see in their subscription box for a long time. The trailer, simplified, is a goofy announcement in Clash of Clans’ signature style for the new up and coming town hall level thirteen. The trailer depicts various attacks and “hidden” symbolism that finds wacky ways to display the number thirteen, but of course this symbolism is quite obvious so that the average viewer knows that town hall thirteen is coming without having to analyze the trailer frame by frame. The trailer also reveals that there will be a new hero coming out, although this can also be deduced without having to think too hard either. What this article will do for you is not state the obvious, but break down the video in extreme depth, as well as giving…


Spy Bots on Roblox?!

Attention Robloxers! You read the title right, there are spy bots on Roblox, and they are everywhere. No joke, this is serious.   These Spy Bots are not just Spy accounts though, they are stolen accounts. These Spy Bots accounts used to be real people’s accounts, but the bots stole them. The YouTubers say Bloxiphant is behind this, and so we all suspect that as well, but none of us know if that is 100% correct. First of all, these bots spy on YouTubers, and float around following them repeating the same sentence over and over. There were several tweets and videos about this, including ones from Flamingo, a famous Roblox YouTuber. The bots sentence says something about asking an account called Bloxiphant to opt-out the bots, but when you go to that account, they say they will not allow you to ask them to opt-out the bots. Sure, there…


A Goose by Any Other Name

In Untitled Goose Game you play as a horrible goose who ruins the lives of everyone in this peaceful town, all to get a bell. The goal of the game is to cause as much mischief as possible using only your ability to grab things and the dedicated honk button. The crimes range from minor theft to assault with intent to kill. You have to control the snakelike neck of the goose to steal a variety of items and use them to wreak havoc on the innocent populus. My favorite section is where you rampage through a miniature city like an enormous Goosezilla, and topple buildings. Every time you complete a section it opens up the next area and a shortcut to the previous area as in some situations you have to journey to previous sections to gather weapons in your war against humanity, or have a picnic. After this…


Feral: Animal Jam for Adults

I’m sure you all know about the famous game, Animal Jam, made by the game company Wildworks. Everyone used to play it, but now more and more people are growing out of it. Roblox, Minecraft, and many other games are becoming more and more famous, while people just don’t see Animal Jam as a fun game to play. Why? The lack of new things, and how the community is shrinking, and how it now seems like an old game. When it first came out everyone loved it, the community flourished but that was in 2010. 9 Years later and no one seems interested in this Childhood classic. Believe me, I used to play Animal jam too. But I left it without notice for Roblox and Avakin Life. But now there is new hope for Wildworks and the loyal Animal Jam players. Feral is a new game made by the same…

“Pokemon Sword & Shield” is the next game in the Pokemon franchise the game will be released on November 15 of this year.

The Lie Spread Among Gamers

For the past few months, the media has been insisting that video games cause violence. The media supports this by stating that before violent video games, international casualties were not nearly as high. There is no or close to no evidence to prove that video games cause violence. “The public doesn’t always blame crime on video games — but they are eight times more likely to do so when the perpetrator of a crime is white,” according to the website Ivory. Despite this the fact that it has been proven that video games do not cause violence, we decided to interview people around the FCS campus and asked their opinion on the matter.    Do video games cause violence?   Tue Huynh: No, because there are articles that explain experiments and research that show that video games do not cause violence.   Theo D: No, I’m not sure.   Tal:…

An Amazing Hidden Game: Slime Rancher!

You may have never heard of this game before, but I can assure you that it is one of the most underrated games ever. In Slime Rancher you play as Beatrix LeBeau, a young woman who was shipped to the far, far, away range in a small pod by the 7zee cooperation. When you wake up you get a game tutorial, and then the fun begins.  I have played over almost the whole game, and the only reason I haven’t completed everything is because the developers are constantly updating the game!  I was looking for a game that contained battles and cuteness at the same time, and then I found Slime Rancher. Slime Rancher is a game for people who enjoy adorable farming simulators, and also brutally murdering their enemies. Wait… Did I forget to mention how amazing the graphics are? Slime Rancher’s graphics are smooth and the lighting really…


Minecraft Comes Back to Dethrone Fortnite

About 10 years ago, the worldwide renowned game, Minecraft, was released by Mojang, on May 17, 2009. The game was such a hit because of all the creativity that Microsoft bought Mojang for 2.5 billion dollars in 2014. However, Minecraft started losing players and Youtubers in 2017. That year, a game called Fortnite, a battle royale game was released. The battle royale was a very creative game, unlike anything else seen before. The game attracted so many players because of how unique it was. In Fortnite, you could build walls, ramps, floors, pyramids, etc. This was the first battle royale game with a building feature. The game was more kid-friendly, excluding blood from the game. Fortnite was also free, which cut out the price factor and decision making for the parents spending money on the game. The game continued to be an extremely successful game.  Starting in 2019, Fortnite also…
