Ryan Ballinger

Hello there! The name's Ryan, and I graduated from Oregon State University in June 2018 with a major in Political Science and a minor in US History. Throughout my life I’ve been a huge fan of sports, movies, tv shows, and, above all else, video games. My favorite games of all time are the original Mass Effect Trilogy, and, in more recent years, I’ve loved God of War, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age, Doom, and the Witcher 3.

Days Gone to Feature Six Hours of Cutscenes

It appears as if the upcoming PS4 exclusive zombie-survival game Days Gone will feature a heavy focus on cinematics.

More recently, the development team revealed that the single-player title features around six hours ...[Read More]

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Adds Loot Boxes

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has been out for a few months now, so it’s great to see that Activision is still supporting their Triple-A shooter with frequent updates. Unfortunately for most (read: all) gamers, the newest update to Black Ops 4 adds loot boxes into the game. This means that there’s yet another system for microtransactions being implemented into the newest COD, which was already a full-...[Read More]

Loch Ness Monster Appears in Apex Legends

The battle royale genre is one that’s familiar with wackiness and zaniness of all kinds, and it certainly appears that Respawn’s Apex Legends will continue that trend. The Loch Ness Monster, commonly referred to as “Nessy,” has made appearances in Titanfall games in the past. At least, Nessy toys have made appearances in the previous Titanfall titles. So it wasn’t a total shock when players starte...[Read More]

Watch Dogs 3 Could be Next-Gen Launch Title

Ubisoft is not a company that takes a lot of time releasing games for its most successful franchises. So it’s surprising there hasn’t been a new Watch Dogs title since 2016’s Watch Dogs 2. Well, thanks to some good ol’ internet sleuthing, we may have some information that points to when the next entry in the popular hacker series will arrive. A couple of days ago, YouTuber Skullzi TV posted a vide...[Read More]
