Replay – Eggs of Steel

We all have a friend named Frank that we talk to from time to time, and we all like eggs, right? We hope you are on board with both of these topics, because we focus on them intently for roughly an hour in this week's Replay episode. Eggs of Steel is a strange, little game that was released exclusively on PlayStation 1 in 1998. We can guarantee you've seen nothing like it before, and it will be well worth your time (especially if you love garbage).

We give it a good look before shifting gears to a similar game that Dan Tack says he logged over 100 hours into. The talk during this segment is particularly interesting, as it takes us back to Tack's childhood. We hope you enjoy this week's show, and would love to see you back here in seven days for another episode! Stay warm.

Funny To A Point – My Big Fat Greek Overwatch Character Ranking

Funny To A Point – My Big Fat Greek Overwatch Character Ranking

As I'm sure you've all noticed while following Funny To A Point over the weeks (you have been, RIGHT?!), I tend to gush about mention Overwatch every now and then (and still more times). It's no secret that I'm a big fan of the game – which is why it seemed a bit dubious that I've devoted entire columns to other games like Call of Duty, Pokémon Go, and Battlefield 1, but not Blizzard's spectacular team hero shooter. I'm aiming to right that wrong today in the biggest way possible: by ranking all 23 Overwatch characters.

As with any ranking, it's important to acknowledge that no matter how definitive a numbered list may seem, it is still just a subjective opinion based on personal experiences. This is especially true for Overwatch, as every character is invaluable (or crap) under the right conditions. As such, I've chosen to rank Overwatch's characters in the fairest way possible: by basing the list solely on which characters I play – and enjoy playing – the most. That said, my years of experience as a Professional Gamer are well documented, which make my subjective opinions far more valuable than the layman gamer. You know what? Let's just call this the objectively definitive ranking of Overwatch characters. Yeah, that feels better, doesn't it?

The Powers In Prey Are Out Of This World

The Powers In Prey Are Out Of This World

Much like Dishonored, Prey is a shooter that equips players with an array of otherworldly powers. That's good, because the space station Talos I is teeming with dangerous aliens that are ready to turn you into another husk of space debris. Arkane's awesome arsenal of abilities opens up a variety of ways to approach each combat encounter and environmental challenge. Here's a quick breakdown of some of the out-of-this-world powers at your disposal in Prey, as well as a couple of the unique man-made weapons.

PowersAll of the aliens in Prey possess their own unique abilities. As you encounter new aliens, you can analyze their genes and alter your own DNA to give yourself their incredible powers. Players are able to upgrade their abilities through a tool called the Neuromod – a device that uses light to scan and measure the brain before making changes to it.

Should You Unwrap Destiny’s Holiday Event, The Dawning?

Should You Unwrap Destiny’s Holiday Event, The Dawning?

Even devoted Destiny players have been struggling to find reasons to log in and play in the past several weeks. The lackluster Festival of the Lost event this year was painfully focused on microtransactions and alienated many players, myself included. And while I personally enjoyed Rise of Iron’s core content, I exhausted its activities in a few weeks and was left with little to do. That’s not necessarily a bad thing; it’s fine to have an ongoing game you enjoy playing for stretches before stepping away for a while to enjoy other games. At the same time, for those of us who really enjoy inhabiting Bungie’s futuristic universe, we’re always eager for something new to sink our teeth into.

Enter The Dawning, Destiny’s winter event, and the chance for Bungie to draw players back in for the holidays after many have already stepped away. The new content is available without an additional upfront cost for players who own Rise of Iron, and the event runs through January 3. So is it worth setting aside some of this season’s other great games to dive back in to the life of a Guardian?
