Quick Drop Media

Starting a new chapter in a game can really give you a sense of accomplishment that you just can't get from anything else. Not to mention it allowed you to save past that really hard boss you'd  been stuck on for who knows how long. It also lead to a continuation of the plot line, an update to the story, and of course, more fun!

Gambit Esports beat Envy 3:0 in the grand-final of VALORANT Champions Tour 2021: Stage 3 Masters - Berlin. Envy won the first two rounds on Bind, but Chronicle's clutch 1v2 stopped kept the early rounds close. Envy showed more confident play on defense, and was able to close the first half 7:5. Gambit started the second half better taking 4 rounds in a row to lead 9:7. From there, it was an equal game Envy disarmed the spike 0.01 second before the explosion to push into extra-rounds. In overtimes, Gambit was able to win two rounds in a row, and took Bind, 15:13.

The second map played out very similar to the first. Envy again had a better start, winning the first half 8:4. Gambit was forced to close the gap and yay won a crazy 1v3 clutch, and brought his team to a score of 11:9.  Gambit managed to win 4 rounds in a row, and took Haven 13:11.

On the third map was a barn-burner. After 12 rounds, the score was 6:6, but Envy's attack was not as convincing as that of Gambit. They managed to win only three rounds. A little bit of confidence with a little bit of luck, they guessed the direction of the opponent's attack, and were able to finish off the opponent on the third map 13:9.

For the victory in VALORANT Champions Tour 2021: Stage 3 Masters - Berlin Gambit receive $225,000 and slot in VALORANT Champions 2021.


GAME UPDATES

Deltarune Chapter 2 Releases For Free

Undertale is one of the most well-received indie game ever made. One man, Toby Fox, designed the gameplay, arranged the music, and wrote the story. Initially released in 2015, the game was an immediate success. Fox soon started on a new game.

Deltarune continues the world-building of its predecessor. While development on Deltarune started before the release of Undertale, Part 1 of the game was not released until 2018. The game followed three heroes as they explore the "Dark World". The game was met with great response, and it was for free. The first part showed us a bit of the gameplay and hinted towards the plot. It was not until recently we received Part 2. Three years later and also free. The game expands on different routes, and gives fans more to learn about the lore. The downloads ended up crashing the website. Fox wanted to provide this part for free, because the state of the world have been challenging. However, he did mention the final 3 parts will not be free and cost more than the original Undertale. Hopefully indicating a comprehensive final game.

The game of Undertale has a rich lore and many mysteries for players to uncover. Deltarune is looking to be an exciting game in the franchise.


THROWBACKS

Childhood Games We All Loved

Source: Poptropica.com

Not all games are suitable for kids (at least that's what the rating on the box says.) However, there were plenty of super fun and addicting games we all played as kids and probably even still play now. Here is a short list of some of our old favorites that we just couldn't put down.

  1. Wizards 101: Who could forget this classic? With ads coming through on most major children's TV  networks coupled with the rise of Harry Potter movies, kids from everywhere were keen on becoming virtual wizards themselves. The game revolved around getting put into a class of wizard (such as ice, life, death, fire, etc) and then learning spells as you slowly upped your level and went into battles with anyone else who was online. The main goal was to defeat multiple larger threats and evildoers to save the world of Spiral. Playing Wizards 101 is often what pulled people into other games like World of Warcraft.
  2. Poptropica: Ah, yes, the 'educational' RPG. This game was completely free to play and had multiple worlds called 'islands' each with a different theme and story to play with. The game involved solving puzzles, defeating bosses, and chatting up the locals to fix what was wrong with the world you traveled to. The major draw to the game was that it was free and constantly (still to this day!) has new and free content for players. Multiplayer minigames and fun little secrets to discover allowed people to enjoy the game for years.
  3. Addicting Games: The site of free chaos that probably gave you a plethora of viruses on your computer was something most people still remember. Games like The Impossible Quiz are still around and still very difficult to play, though nowadays there are far more solutions and help guides around to get you through even the toughest of puzzles.
  4. Wii Sports: Probably one of the best Wii games that was given out with each and every old Wii. The game had iconic matches, sports, and multiplayer modes that made it super fun and diverse for everyone to play. There was always one sport that some family member was really, really good at and would always mean defeat for anyone else, but it did inspire a lot of practice and fun competition.

Which old game on this list was your favorite?

Have a great start to your week, everyone!
