Welcome to New Year’s Eve 2018, and we’re sharing our favorite top 5 ARPGS of the year, as we wait for 2019’s roster and upcoming games to release.. The later half of 2018 have seen more games from the MMO spectrum to check out, and while next year is also looking promising for single player ARPGS. So here’s a look at some of the best games to play in the ARPG genre. Shadows: Awakening From the outside, Shadows: Awakening looks like just another ordinary ARPG game that fails to stand out from the crowd. Upon deeper inspection, we were surprised at how engaging the gameplay mechanics are. In Shadows: Awakening, you control the Devourer – a demon awakened by a mysterious man in search for answers. Your fates are tied together. As the demon, you can consume souls or puppets. These souls holds the key to unlocking the game’s fun puppet swap mechanic. The Archer, Mage and Warrior souls allows you to switch to the human world to interact with live objects … [Read more...] about Our Favorite Top 5 ARPGS Of The Year 2018

Last night, a group from my Free Company, KoM, downed the final boss of the Dragonsong War in the Final Steps of Faith. This was not an easy fight to do in Duty Finder, and one of the guys in our FC was on his 9th try. But seeing we made up most of the party and we were on voice chat, I think we had the edge over a normal PUG. The battle was quite mechanically intensive and really required a lot of coordination from all people in the party. The times we wiped, it was often because it wasn’t understood that “STACK NOW” meant “EVERYONE MUST STACK OR DIE!” Yes, that means you, too, random PUG member. Mechanics aren’t optional if you want to clear, folks. That is the message that S/E is speaking loud and clear with this fight and what I’ve seen in the Wiping City raid. The final round, we got him down under 10% and I had to do my duty as the party’s dragoon: ie. sacrifice myself for the LB3. There just wasn’t a good time to be locked in … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Final Steps of Faith Down!
Update: As anticipated, Steps of Faith got a nerf in patch 2.57. Hopefully this will help prevent stories like mine from replaying in the future. And maybe folks will stop auto-dropping this trial, too. Maybe. So last night, I reached the Steps of Faith Pain trial on Zuri while working to complete the main scenario story and get her ready for Heavensward. I knew that it would be tough to do using the Duty Finder. I just didn’t know that it would be near impossible. -Steps of Faith Begins- Me: Hello! Healer: Oh FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF- NOT THIS TRIAL! DPS: I shoulda just run Ifrit HM four times to finish my poetics. Why did I roulette? Tank: Here, guys, I’ll save you from the pain! *drops* *Rest of group drops, too* Me: I… uh… actually need this for story progression. Guys? … Guys? That was how my first DF went last night. I knew that I was going to be in for a nasty ride. It seems that people hate this trial so badly they will actually eat … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Steps of Faith Nightmares

I’ve already discussed about how to secure your Gmail account from hacking. It’s all about keeping your account safe by using a strong password (use a combination of alphabets, numbers, symbols) and by enabling 2-Step verification. But what to do when your Gmail account is hacked or compromised? Since the hacker may have already changed your password, security question & answer, recovery email address, mobile number associated with the account you can’t recover your Gmail using the basic account recovery methods. If the basic account recovery options like recovery email address and mobile phone number is not changed then you can instantly recover the account by requesting a verification code to your mobile phone or by confirming access to your recovery e-mail.
