Rhyfel's Comprehensive List of Life Changing Games
Don't worry this is not the typical "Top 100" list. Think of it more like a suggestion list of awesome games more than anything, this is a list of some of the games I have played over the many years, which I believe are detrimental to a thorough experience of what gaming truly has to offer. It includes titles from nearly every genre that have all provided gamers with unique experiences unparalleled at the time or since.These are not all the games I played, these are not all the necessary games either as I am sure I missed plenty. But these
Retro Dose #30 - The Witcher before The Witcher
Fenomenal Witcher 3: Wild Hunt delivered us an unforgettable end to Geralt's adventure with Blood and Wine expansion, and we dedicate this dose to the humble beginning of the Witcher series. And no, it's not what you expect.After The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt , I think it's safe to say that today, a wide circle of gamers is familiar with Geralt and The Witcher series. Although many may not have played it because it is simply not their type of a game, surely everyone is at least aware that he even exists. And that he is important. But something that
The Witcher will get its own TV series on Netflix
We will probably not play new games from The Witcher series for a while, but we will therefore have the opportunity to watch the adventures of Geralt as a television series in proven Netflix production.A pleasant surprise arrived today from Netflix office. Known company which owns some of the most popular TV series in the world, such as House of Cards, Narcos, etc., Has confirmed that it is moving in the production of a new series based on The Witcher franchise. "Andrzej Sapkowski has created a rich world to remember, at the same time magical and famous. We could not be
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
