Conan Exiles Review
Conan Exiles debuted back in 2017, and by all accounts was a severely troubled product. It shipped with a substantial number of bugs, glitches, and was horribly optimized as well. Is it any different now? Yes.Funcom surprised just about everyone by releasing a steady stream of bug fixes, patches, and free content updates, as well as cosmetic DLC packs over time. The free content included new biomes that were added to the map; such as a vast swamp, frigid arctic wasteland, lush forested area, and highly volatile volcanic zone. However, perhaps the most monumental addition that the developers added was a new
Sin Slayers Review
Some of the greatest indie games of all time are just magical, taking the best parts of multiple genres and combining them into something wholly new yet entirely familiar. Sin Slayers, sadly, isn’t one of these games.‘RPG roguelike’ is the label Sin Slayers has given itself, while simultaneously mistaking what makes each genre gel together so effectively. RPGs layer complex systems upon systems, creating excitement through versatile approaches allowed by deep customisation. Roguelikes cut through these systems with added risks like permadeath and procedural generation, making moment-to-moment choices more impactful.The RPG elements of Sin Slayers are mediocre at best. You control
We Happy Few - Lightbearer DLC Review
Reception to We Happy Few may have mixed upon release, but patched after launch, anyone that likes a good story would be wise to pick it up. But, we're not here to talk about the base game, we're here to talk about the DLC Lightbearer.A short story playable separately to We Happy Few‘s main campaign, Lightbearer places players in the shoes of Nick Lightbearer, Wellington Wells’ favourite rock star. Awakening from yet another night filled with sex, drugs and rock and roll, Nick is mortified when he finds some ominous lyrics scrawled on a piece of paper. Plus, he’s also covered
Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China Review

Although in other game modes such as arcade you have an
Thea 2 : The Shattering Review
Thea 2: The Shattering is a sequel to the 4X strategy with RPG and card game elements developed by MuHa Games. Thea 2 takes us to the same fantasy land as the previous game, where we will find many inspirations from the Slavic mythology.Thea 2: The Shattering is a hybrid of game genres. You could call it turn-based or survival. Maybe even RPG. It is tactical and it is rogue-like. Managing all these at once is a delicate dance. Even more, Thea 2 draws upon its predecessor by enlarging the scope of some aspects while adding further detail to others. On
your opinion is imposed by films and the government, in reality it's not at all like thatSeptember 26, 2022
Surprised by the incredibly measured and restrained policy of the site administration. It's incredibly difficult these days. However, trying to be liberal with a bandit nation is always a losing stance. Once again, I am convinced where the Russians are, there is fraud and theft.September 24, 2022
Russian users are like their government. If somewhere someone does something around the rules using hacking, deceit and abuse, then it is always Russians.
It is high time to close the entrance of this contingent of people to all the world's Internet sites.September 24, 2022
you did not act fairly, I hope you reconsider your decisionSeptember 21, 2022
I have already responded to you directly on Discord.September 18, 2022
Well, since you don't want to reply to the letter, let's discuss the situation publicly.
You have explained in detail your position on the genocide of your own users that you committed. Now let's look at the situation from the other side...
I signed up for opiumpulses over 6 years ago.
I visited the site EVERY day. I participated in all the activities you suggested. And I was glad that I found such a wonderful site.
I have accumulated tens of thousands of points. But I didn't spend it, I trusted you completely. After all, what could go wrong?
On September 14, 2022 the site told me: "This user account is disabled. Contact an administrator."
Okay, I wrote to the administrator. In response, I received a template reply Ctrl + C / Ctrl + V about evil Russian hackers and an offer to create a new account. After that, the administration of Opium Pulses stopped the correspondence. Create a new account... Why? For you to f**k me again in 6 years?!
From the news on the site, it became clear that Opium Pulses lost the war with unscrupulous users. And they did not come up with anything smarter than to ban about 200 MILLION law-abiding users, current and potential.
Moreover, they banned everyone in a row: both Russians, and Belarusians, and Ukrainians and God knows who else.
What about scammers? Nothing... They will turn on the VPN, create new accounts and continue to accumulate points. For some of them, it will become a matter of principle to rob you. The only thing OP gained from his solution was some time. But he got that time by cheating a bunch of people like me. We honestly accumulated points for years and were left with nothing. OP, tell me, how are you different from the classic scammers in this situation?
Guys, this crazy anti-advertising action is worthy of the Guinness Book of Records. You only need to apply.September 18, 2022
Thank you for expressing your opinions and concerns. Abusive messages will be deleted but yours is honest and civilised.
The truth is, this latest crowd-organised mission to all spend years of accumulated points at the same time has been one small event in years and years of fraud, exploits and attacks on our site, the vast majority of such being from Russia. This is just a simple fact and not one we wanted to publicly state before now as it's not a nice thing to admit.
Yes, admittedly our points system has been open to abuse in the past but the vast majority of abuse has also come primarily from Russia.
Below are two articles over the years that show not only have we been public about the amount of fraud and abuse we receive, but also examples of where we have tried to rebalance the system and put restrictions in place to help us avoid making such a big decision.
We tried everything we could but at this point, we were getting to the point that it wasn't worth our time, efforts and well-being to keep fighting such levels of fraud forever, we needed to either close the store entirely or take drastic measures to reduce our risk and hopefully continue on, we chose the latter.
We hope given a more detailed explanation and the articles above, you can begin to understand our position a little more as no community, least of all OP, would ever shun an entire community of people unless our hand was forced.
For now, Russian users still have access to our articles, arcade, videos, podcasts and Discord community.

Nice! <3September 15, 2022
