New Games on Steam: Quarantine Edition

This week’s edition of New Games on Steam is a particularly good one. We got something for everybody, and some of these titles will put a huge smile on your face. Without further ado …

Beyond This Side

Let’s start with an interesting point-and-click adventure from Glim Games. You will be playing as Sam, who is shellshocked after finding his missing wife’s hand in a trashcan. He decides to snoop around the alley for 6 months, and during this time, the mystery slowly begins to uncover. As you can probably tell, Beyond This Side pairs challenging puzzles with a bleak atmosphere that isn’t for everyone. This is an episodic game, with 2 out of 3 episodes already available.

Dunk Lords

If you’ve ever wanted to smash your opponent’s head while playing basketball, now you can! Dunk Lords is a basketball beat ’em up that presents a healthy outlet to your sociopathic tendencies. You can choose between 16 wacky characters, all with their special abilities, to uncover complete mayhem on the field. More attacks are earned by doing a Space Jam like dunks or massive rejections, so it’s on you to give it your best. Since this is a 2v2 battle, Dunk Lords supports split-screen play and has 4-player arcade mode. So, invite your friends and let the dunking begin!

ShieldWall

Nezon Productions came out swinging from the get-go, with this refreshing take on the strategy genre. Set in a time of ancient Rome, ShieldWall puts you in boots of a legion leader whose task is to conquer Gaul for mighty Caesar. However, all characters are lego-like soldiers, which makes for hilarious battles. ShieldWall lets you siege or defends your castle against up to 3 additional teams. If this trailer doesn’t make your blood boil, I don’t know what will.

Legend of Keepers

Congratulations! Your dreams have become true and you are finally hired as a dungeon master. Now, you are in charge of defending precious treasure acquired by Dungeons Company. Luckily, you have a ton of beastly employees who will gladly fight in your place. As you crush weakly heroes, you will also be climbing a steep corporate ladder, hire mercenaries and micromanage your employees. If you are looking for an interesting turn-based roguelike with a spin, Legend of Keepers might be a perfect choice for you.

ASCIIDENT

Lastly, we have a full-on retro sci-fi adventure game. The game boasts an ASCII artwork, melodramatic 8-bit music, and features a vast open-world for you to explore. Asciident is inspired by SF novel Frango Anomaly, and you will be playing as a (human?) clone who’s trying to escape space pirates. Since it’s early access, you can expect a lot more new content in the months to come.

These titles aren’t enough to satiate your gaming appetite? Take a look at our previous installation of New Games on Steam here.

Fortnite: why are the pros making it competitive? Ninja and SypherPK explain.

Fortnite: why are the pros making it competitive? Ninja and SypherPK explain.

Published

The days go by and when you open social networks you are faced with a professional giving up the scenario. Players Ninja and SypherPK discussed what is happening to people getting away with Fortnite. Tyler “Ninja” Blevins and Ali “SypherPK” Hassan are more focused on content production than the competitive landscape. So, it was very interesting to hear what they had to say about the growing number of professionals who gave up competing.

In the last few days, the bombshell has come from Harrison “Psalm” Chang’s withdrawal from the competition. Since winning 2nd place in the solo World Cup finals, he has been in decline. The player revealed that he has plans to dedicate himself to the new Riot Games game, Valorant.

Fortnite: why are the pros making it competitive? Ninja and SypherPK explain.

Psalm at 24 is one of the biggest boomers in the game. Known as META Master, a strategic knowledge and a lot of notion of game has made him evolve since he was 13 years old. All of this made him take 2nd place in the solo finals of the World Cup and breaking $ 1,800,000. Practically 1 year after that big moment, Salmo is entering another life-changing event. Then announcing his departure from Fortnite to pursue new competitive experiences.

Salmo revealed that his dream is to be one of the most decorated contestants in the history of electronic games. He can be considered one of the most successful players in the history of Esports, with a plethora of titles.

In the last decade, Psalm achieved the following:

  • Top 20 Heroes of Newerth ladder;
  • Diamond Starcraft II S1 (highest at the time);
  • DotA 2 semi-pro (this one I regret quitting);
  • CS:GO Global Elite;
  • Top 70 Overwatch S1 ladder;
  • Best HotS pro in NA;
  • 2nd at FN World Cup;
  • Hit D3 in LoL in 2 months (brand new).

Ninja and SypherPK commented on Salmo’s withdrawal, his possible move to Valorant, Sypher said “He is obviously very talented, but he was always the guy who used his brain, not necessarily the most sophisticated mechanics, but at the end of the day, Valorant will demand an insane amount. Aiming ability. ”

Sypher did not mean that Salmo would not have the necessary mechanical skill, but he explains that adaptation in Valorant will not be easy. This change will be very impactful for the player. He still hints that in the case of Psalm, due to his experience in competing in several games, he could easily be a very successful player in Counter Strike Global Offensive for example. This bodes well for your future in Valorant, as the game has a mix of CS:GO and Overwatch.

Following the conversation, Ninja reveals: “If you’re doing well at Fortnite right now and you’re enjoying it, there’s no reason to change.” He adds, “Even if you’re doing well, you can get tired of Fortnite’s competitiveness”.

As for the reasoning of Fortnite professionals who leave the competitive landscape, they mention some issues that influence their choice. Since the failures that kill them for no reason, players who go without playing can affect the player. They also mentioned the other problems associated with these open online events, such as the team building and flow sniping scandals that have been making headlines recently.

What is expected?

The pair agreed that Valorant will be policed ​​much better than Fornite, speaking of the competitive scene. For them, it is much easier in a 5×5 game than a Battle Royale game. For professional Fortnite players, small changes are ignored by the developers. It is these changes that make a huge difference in the game, and that in most cases, cause players to lose interest in competing.

This article ends with a criticism of EPIC. If Fortnite cannot work with the main concepts of competitive integrity or, at least, fix it in the summer, VALORANT could be the real “Fortnite killer”.
