  • March 1, 2021

Review NBA 2K21 (Next-Gen) – Those of you who actively participate seem to already know how we seldom review sports games because of the annual release format that it carries. It’s hard to shake off skepticism that the new iteration that launches each year does indeed come with features and changes that aren’t so significant that it’s not worth talking about. However, in some special conditions; sports games are include in the highest priority of review; especially at the time of the change in the generation of consoles. Why? Because usually the newest series that comes out there; will come with so many changes that even, deserve to be praise. The same reason that made us look to the Next-Gen version of the NBA 2K21 which is currently available for the Playstation 5.

The Features on NBA 2K21

With the extra performance of the Playstation 5 and the various features it carries, it is certainly interesting to see what 2K Sports has prepared with the Next-Gen version of the NBA 2K21. Because as we know, it is also the first next-gen game title to openly reveal plans to increase the price compare to the previous generation version. 2K Sports and Visual Concepts at the time claimed that the NBA 2K21 Next-Gen came with so many enhancements to make the increase in price justified. No doubt, these claims are enough to make our curiosity run high.

So, what does NBA 2K21 actually offer? Why did we choose one of the Indonesian rapper’s song lyrics – IWA K to describe how we feel with this one next-gen title? This review will discuss it more deeply for you.

Believe it or not, NBA 2K21 Next-Gen also comes with its own storyline. It is present in a mode call MyCareer which is design in such a way as to follow the professional career paths of the Avatar characters that you form. Of course, he is complete with drama like a Hollywood movie.

The character you formulate and use is said to have almost given up on basketball and chose American Football as a career path. Rooted because of the memory of his father who in fact had a career in basketball in the past, followed by the insistence of several other characters, he finally decided to return. Skills above average eventually bring your character to shine, from high school, university, to the end being target by the NBA itself.

The Storyline of NBA 2K21 (Next-Gen)

It doesn’t always come straightforward and only presents random cut-scenes, Visual Concepts also tries to inject a super dramatic story in it, which is not always related to your basketball career itself. Some of the cut-scenes also contain choices that can influence what your next career move will be.

In fact, the extra points of dramatization are also melted into the gameplay, such as where in one point of the story, the character ends up getting injured while on the field. We thought that this was due to random factors, but were quite surprised to see how this situation was later pushed into part of the story. To be honest, as long as we play MyCareer, we don’t know which events end in scripted and which ones actually appear as a consequence of your gameplay side.

We will release it together with the 7.28 gameplay update, in mid-December,” wrote Valve on the game’s official blog on Last November.

Evidently, the new hero Dota 2 was immediately added to Patch Note 7.28. This new hero in the form of a squirrel with a cute face turns out to have quite a troublesome effect. Judging from the video trailer, Hoodwink appears to be carrying a weapon in the form of a ballista. He can shoot nets as well as arrows in his ultimate skill. He is a hero with abilities as a Nuker and Disabler. His skill can also function as a tool to escape quite effectively.

“Hoodwink lives in chaos with the threat of filling the haunted forest that he adopted as his home. Managing large arrows while still being able to penetrate the forest with great ease, Hoodwink is almost impossible to watch in battle,” wrote the description on the official website.

Dota 2 Hoodwink Ability and Skills

Terizla Mobile Legend

Terizla Mobile Legends Item Build to Optimize Attack and Defense

  • February 2, 2021

Terizla Mobile Legends Item Build to Optimize Attack and Defense. You need a fighter hero with high damage and attack in Mobile Legend. The right choice is Terizla a hero in Mobile Legend. What makes this hero popular is the ability to provide damage so that it is worthy of being a tank and fighter simultaneously. However, the downside is that it is slow. Enemy heroes can dodge and then make Terizla an easy target. In order for optimal attacks and better hero performance, you need a Build Item called Mobile Legends. The following list shows some items that are suitable for pairing with the terizla fighter type hero.

Shoes Equipment for Terizla is Warrior Boots

The first thing that needs to be addressed is speed and movement. To meet these needs, you need to pair boots. The right choice is warrior boots. This is an item that is useful for increasing physical movement. With this item, you can move the terizla hero smoothly.

Another advantage is 22 armor points. This addition is useful for defense. Hero fighters can indeed provide damage but are vulnerable to counterattacks. The fast movement also triggers the enemy to continue attacking as you approach them. Therefore, heroes need defense armor. Other terizla build items in Mobile Legends as an alternative are tough boots and demon shoes.

Attack Equipment for Terizla is Bloodlust Ax

The next item is bloodlust ax. This is an item that can increase physical attacks. For those who use terizla, physical attacks need to be greater. Items like this are the right choice. Besides that, you also get passive skills that can be used to increase capabilities.

Defence Item for Terizla is Athena’s Shield

You need to think about defense when using the terizla. Damage is large but there must be something that can protect against long-range attacks, especially magic. To meet these needs, the right choice of Bang Bang Mobile Legends items is Athena’s Shield.

Items like this are useful in the late game. In that session, the enemy hero will launch a major attack because he has received damage. The main target is a hero who is easily attacked because his movements tend to be slow. You are wearing a terizla and have to be prepared for the attack. Another function of this item is to survive magic and keep mana from being wasteful.

Another Attack equipment for Terizla is Endless Battle

The most important build item in Mobile Legends is endless battle. This is an attack item with additional useful features. Items will increase mana regen, lifesteal, and HP. Furthermore, the hero also receives a cooldown reduction. With this feature, you are ready to attack again with a quick period.

Wings of The Apocalypse Queen

The latest sickest build item is Wings of the Apocalypse Queen. This is an item that can both defend and attack. When used, the hero will receive around 1000 hp. A quite significant number, especially in the final battle.

Immortality

Fighters must remain until the battle is over. If you die or lose, the hero will appear again because you use an immortality item. Apart from these features, items provide pretty good defense. Damage will be reduced because it is able to absorb attacks. Immortality’s job is to survive and you change to malefic roar when your position is superior.

The most popular build item in Mobile Legends shows that high level attack is not enough. This hero must be able to reach the enemy. In addition, attacks also need to be balanced with defense. You don’t want the terizla hero to quickly lose and even die just because you choose the wrong defensive item. The list above shows what needs to be bought and used so that the strategy is more optimal.

Most Confusing Gamers Terms for Ordinary People

  • February 1, 2021

Most Confusing Gamers Terms for Ordinary People. Regardless of the gaming variety of favorite genres and franchises, there are so many new words, phrases or abbreviations that have emerged to accommodate the communication needs of gamers as a whole.

A variety of new terms have appeared that may seem foreign, but have been able to achieve their main function for gaming needs. Gamers construct a lot of the term “cool” which is certain, it will feel so absurd and strange to the ears of the layman or non-gamer. Something that even has the potential to have a much different meaning from what these gamers are trying to convey, especially when it accidentally slides out in everyday conversations.

So, of all the gaming terms that are scattered about, which ones are potentially the most confusing for ordinary people or non-gamers? Here is the list.

Grinding

It’s not an easy matter to explain what Grinding is to ordinary people, or even gamers who don’t really like RPG as a genre. Why? Because there are so many indicators and factors involved in it. Grinding itself is an action for gamers not to continue the story or the main quest, and to be more involved in insignificant side action with one goal – strengthening the character, especially in terms of status and level. Explaining a concept like this to ordinary people means that you have to explain the importance of levels, skills, jobs, and the main motives that define RPG as a genre. If the target audience had more than an hour to hear the lecture and your RPG-hunting spirit, Grinding probably wouldn’t sound like such a confusing concept.

Party

“Uh … you know what, gamers like to have fun”
“Why is that?”
“Yeah, they like parties anyway ..”

Believe it or not, a series of sentences like the one above can happen if you don’t explain completely what the “Party” concept looks like in your gaming activities. Don’t blame the layman if they end up thinking that you are organizing or engaging in a hedonistic act with loud music, neat clothes, smells of perfume and cigarettes, and the wobble that keeps blowing through the morning. Or you get involved in balloon action, singing, and obscure humor with your friends. “Party” is a word that is very ambiguous in the brains of non-gamers if it slides without explanation. In fact, what you mean is just playing together with in-game friends in a group, going on an adventure together.
