Black Character Hair Options In Video Games Are Still Abysmal! Game Developers Need To Start Stepping Up Their Game!

One of my biggest annoyances when it comes to character creation sections in games is the lack of hair options for Afrocentric people. Look, it’s great that they finally added  detailed skin tone variations, but that really does me or people like me any good when I’m forced to either go with the Afro, thick dreads or buzz cuts IF I wanted to created an authentic Black character. And what’s puzzling to me is why that’s always been largely ignored. At first I thought, “huh, maybe our hair just ain’t that easy to model or animate”, then I’d take one look at ANY of the 2K NBA games and realize that’s bullshit.

Now Is The Time For African Game Developers To Take Charge & Create AAA Games Based Around Africa’s Bountiful Cultures, History & Mythology!

You know, with games like Ghost of Tsushima, Conquers’s Blade, Anno 1800, The Witchers, Red Dead Redemption and Total war: Three Kingdoms, they all share something in common. All of these games are based on strong cultures from various countries/continent. Themes that we’ve seen, time and time again.

However, when I tried to think about games based around the continent of Africa, aside from the fantastic game that was Assassin’s Creed Origins, nothing came up. At first, I was kinda bummed out as usual, but now I felt like this might be a great opportunity for the booming video game industry in Africa to capitalize on this untapped gold and turn it into asset.

Fans Thought Pokemon: Let’s Go Was A Spin-off, According To Masuda They Thought WRONG!!!

I remember when Pokemon Let’s Go was first unveiled to the world, Masuda specifically stated that the Let’s GO games were core games to the series. The fans however couldn’t accept that truth and instead convinced themselves that it was a spin-off to the Pokemon games. Well, Masuda stresses once again for the nay-sayers out there that Lets Go is NOT a spin-off, and is in fact a core game. You only have yourself to blame guys.

Top 5 Most Friendliest F2P Gacha Game In 2018!

Another year, another bulk of mobile game to rate. Last year I wrote a blog titled “Top 5 Most Friendliest F2P Gacha Game In 2017”, so it’s only natural that I’d do one for 2018. There’s a lot of mobile games this year, especially gacha games, but for me I tend to play only mobiles games that reward you for your time, not your wallet. Now there’s nothing wrong in putting some money in a mobile game, especially if you enjoy the heck outta it and want to show your support towards the devs who made the game, but for me, if I have to spend money to enjoy a mobile then it’s no fun for me.
