Conan Exiles Creates a Stir with Slave Ownership

So lets start this thing off right, yes this game does still exist, I know I was surprised as well. The thing is in an attempt to really pay homage to the origins of this universe the developers decided to have slaves as part of the game. As some might remember from the original movie, Conan started out as a slave. The developers, however, decided to take it a step further and added in the ability to own slaves. 

It basically works like this, in the game you will raid a village, and you can capture and drag off your prisoners who then become your slaves. As time progresses the captive, slave, will become compliant, at this point you can send them on missions. 

Now I don't know about you, but this kind of makes me a little bit uncomfortable. Yes I know the source material does in fact have slaves, but making a mechanic and probably one that is front and center at points in the game just doesn't feel right. If you are one of the many (few) gamers out there playing this game, do know that you don't have to utilize the slave (thrall, as they call it) mechanic at all. You can just explore the world any way you want.

Scammers Using Fortnite to Choose Their Victims

As many of you know Fortnite is one of the most popular and watched games there is, currently. So it would seem that there are quite a few scam-artist who are trying to benefit from this fact. They are doing it with the promise of free V-bucks, the exclusive in game currency. The trick is that they get the unsuspecting victim to download a special app that will allow them to become eligible for contests where the prizes are V-bucks. However these apps are actually part of phishing scheme to royally screw over those poor victims.

I believe the old saying of "if it seems to be too good to be true, then it probably is". Lords and Ladies do be careful of what you may hear revolving around special prizes for popular games through a third-party. Chances are these are the scams that will get you, and probably get you bad.

Boss Key Productions Closes as Cliff Bleszinski Steps Down

The man who once went by Cliffy B, and was one of the driving forces behind the Gears of War franchise has announced that he is stepping away from Video Games for the time being to focus more on family. The thing is that with this move his company that he found, Boss Key Productions, will be closing. 

Some might cite that one of many factors for this move has to do with the two games that the company created, which none really caught on with consumers. There was the highly anticipated LawBreakers game that really fell flat, and then there was a late arrival into the Battle Royale gaming space called Radical Heights. The industry will miss this gentleman's contributions, but perhaps a break will reinvigorate the brain juices that gave us Gears of War.

Rick and Morty Are Coming BACK

 

You want to talk about something to celebrate, then let us talk of a TV series that has been amazing and promises to continue to be just that. After many months of silence we finally have what we all have hoped for. Not only will this show return, but it will for at 70 episodes.

Now of course we have to know wait patiently, which is a very hard thing for us to do, before we can see any of these episodes. The reason of course is that until this deal was done there was no additional work done on this project. So let us all cross our fingers that when the episodes they come fast, and continue to be amazing.
