Ah, there’s nothing like a good competition. The love of competition is evident everywhere. It’s one of the reasons multiplayer games are so popular. It’s one of the reasons team sports are so popular. And it’s one of the reasons why, whether you play alone against the computer or against other people, sports video games have firmly cemented themselves in the market. The NBA 2K series is one of the biggest. Yearly basketball games continue to sell in huge numbers, so it was probably a good decision for NBA 2K14 to release as a launch title for the PS4 and Xbox One in November 2013, even if it had already been out since October for the PS3 and Xbox 360, as well as the PC.

It was a quite a success, except for the iOS version, which you’ll notice we didn’t even list among the systems above. That aside, most people enjoyed the additions made since the previous entry in the series. Some feel it didn’t use the full potential of the new consoles, but it was designed with the older consoles in mind—we can’t expect every game to blast through with never-before-seen graphics to blow our minds immediately. And really, if it was fun on the old consoles, it should be fun on the new consoles. The reviews stand as testament to the fact that at least a majority of people feel this way.

So, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, are you ready to lead your team to victory?

That’s what you want to do, after all. No one is going to turn on a basketball game and hope to lose. You need to sit down and understand the players you have on your team. Get some elite players and study their signature skills. Study the strengths, weaknesses, and skills of the players on your opponents’ teams. Fire up myNBA2K14 if you have a device capable of running the app, and use it to gain every advantage. Earn Virtual Currency. Prepare your strategy. Then get in there and go for the kill!

Or defend your basket, if you’ve opted for a defensive strategy rather than an offensive one.

Whatever you decide, you can always use NBA 2K14 cheats to keep your game in top form. Master the “pick and roll” and learn how to avoid being accused of goal tending. Read about those signature skills. Access strategies, tips on how to steal the ball, and hints for myNBA2K14. Other little tricks will make sure you always have an edge. Even if you prefer not to take advantage of these sorts of cheats, you should definitely keep your eyes open for the cheat codes regularly released for the game. They expire over time, but as long as you snatch them up early on, you can enter these “Locker Codes” to get Virtual Currency, limited time players, new clothes and dunk packages, and more. Don’t waste a minute—go out there and see what you can find.

And now, with all of this information at your disposal, it’s time to lead your team to victory!

If you’re reading this, you’re probably either excited for Destiny and in search of new details, or wondering just what this game is all about and why people are so interested in it. Hints about Destiny circulated amongst gamers for a while, but when it was finally revealed, anticipation shot through the roof. Here’s a game being made by Bungie, with a dynamic world, a science fiction setting, and explosive multiplayer FPS action. It’s an online game, so you can play with your friends as if it were an MMO, but supposedly this “shared-world shooter” will bring new concepts and features to the table to make it stand out from other online shooters. We won’t know everything until September 9, when it launches for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, but until then, we can discuss the basic overview of Destiny.

Destiny may be an online multiplayer game, but that doesn’t mean it lacks a campaign. In fact, the campaign may be considered the central feature. And while there is competitive multiplayer, it’s far from the focus. Whether you want to compete with your friends or just enjoy the story without worrying about other players attacking you, you should find what you’re looking for in Destiny. There are many different modes.

As far as the story goes, this is a futuristic game set 700 years from now. Humankind expanded out into space, but then a terrible catastrophe nearly wiped out the entire race. The sacrifice of the Traveler, the orb that hands suspended above Earth’s final city, is the only thing that prevented complete destruction. Now, as humans are threatened by a variety of alien threats, it is up to you to protect the City, fight your enemies, and explore other planets for remnants of that Golden Age of space travel. You are a Guardian, one of a number of powerful soldiers that can use some of the Traveler’s power.

Although one of your goals is protecting humanity, Guardians aren’t necessarily human. You can choose to be human, but maybe you’d prefer to play as the Exo or Awoken species. An Exo is more or less an AI or robot—part of the advanced technology of the Golden Age, but without the memories that drove its actions back then. The Awoken are even more mysterious—blue-skinned beings inspired by mythology, just one of the many things that gives Destiny a fantasy atmosphere despite its sci-fi setting.

Whatever species you choose, however, it won’t affect your gameplay. The actual combat differences between Guardians come down to your class. Any species can pick any of the three classes. If you favor stealth combat and ranged attacks, check out the Hunter. If you prefer to go in with magic to enhance your attacks, give the Warlock a try. And if strength and defense are the traits that match your fighting style the best, then maybe the Titan is the right one for you.

Once you have your Guardian, your adventure will begin. Several planets have been revealed as locations for Destiny, and Bungie caused quite a stir with the announcement that each planet is as big as Halo: Reach. You won’t run out of things to do any time soon, as you explore the galaxy and find new weapons and loot. If you’re having trouble, though, don’t worry—we wouldn’t be at all surprised to see cheat guides that point you in the direction of better loot and more powerful weapons.

Since it is really a blend of different genres, we could see all sorts of Destiny cheats. Maybe some nice hints about abilities and combat tips will come out, to further help you decide which class you want. Upgrades, missions, and more—this game could have cheats normally seen for both shooters and MMOs. While you’re exploring the various planets, we bet there’ll be some great Easter eggs for you to find, too. Maybe Bungie will even reference some of their past games. From cheats to exploration to the gameplay itself, Destiny should be packed to the brim with content.








Grand Theft Auto V has a lot of content. It’s a huge game, and you can easily pour hours and hours into it. Therefore, it’s important to have a grasp on the basics, to get the most out of your experience. The GTA games have always included weapons and fighting, but GTA V made some changes to the basic system, such as adding a weapon wheel.

The weapon wheel has eight slots. More than one weapon can be carried in each slot at a time—the slots are not important just because of their number, but because of their type. There is one slot for each category of weapon. For example, pistols and all other handguns will go in one slot. Machine guns and sub-machine guns go in another slot. Shotguns go in a slot. Melee weapons, throwable weapons, sniper rifles, assault rifles, and heavy weapons each have their own slots, as well. This should give you an idea of the variety of weapons you can get in GTA V.

As you play through GTA V, you’ll unlock more powerful weapons. Some weapons, you’ll find, but for the most part, you’ll use your in-game currency to buy them from the Ammu-Nation store.

Once you have a weapon, check out its stats to make sure it’s the one you want to use. Four major stats contribute to the overall effectiveness of each weapon. Damage determines how much it hurts the enemy. Fire Rate determines how quickly rounds are fired. Accuracy determines how easy it will be to hit your target. Finally, Range determines how far away from the enemy you can be to still use the weapon. Different stats are more important to different weapons—for example, a sniper rifle needs high range and accuracy to be effective, but isn’t as reliant upon a high fire rate. Machine guns, on the other hand, have a high rate of fire by their very nature, but often sacrifice accuracy as a result. Take a good look at the stats of your weapons to understand their strengths and weaknesses.

GTA V also includes weapon attachments, to alter your weapons even further. For example, the Suppresser reduces the damage and range of your weapon, but also makes it quieter so it won’t alert the cops as easily when it’s fired. These are all things you’ll need to take into account for your basic gameplay, whether you’re performing missions or trying to get achievements.

If missions and achievements aren’t your target, however, and you’re just looking to cause a little mayhem, there are plenty of weapon-related cheats you can try out. You can give yourself infinite ammo, flaming ammo, explosive ammo, and more. You can spawn weapons and aim in slow motion. Each cheat code as a unique combination of buttons and directional commands, and as long as you know the code, you can enter it from your game at any point (except during missions) to activate the cheat.

Try out different cheats with different types of weapons to see which combination you find the most entertaining, and have fun!








It’s been several years since the release of Fallout 3, and another Fallout game has been released since then, but if you’re still playing it—or even just starting it for the first time—it’s not really that surprising. After all, Bethesda’s 2008 post-apocalyptic open world game was incredibly well-received, and many fans still really love it. You can play it on the PC, PS3, or Xbox 360, so it’s still easily accessible since we’ve just entered the new console generation. So, what is it that made Fallout 3 so great?

Well, we don’t have enough time to go into all of the details here, but it was an atmospheric game with an open world, exploration, tons of content, moral choices, and more. The choices tied into a karma system, which isn’t uncommon in this sort of player-driven RPG. In fact, you can find guides specifically about earning good karma or bad karma, to help players who are having trouble with the game’s morality system. You could use Fallout 3’s RPG elements to customize your character’s skills as you earned XP, although of course there are cheats to help you drive up your skills to 100%, as well as methods to earn more XP.

Of course, it’s not just you and your player, even in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. You’ll have companions, so it’s a good thing you can find guides on how to win them over. You’ll also have a dog, and while he’s very useful on his own, there’s a cheat that actually makes him invincible! Additionally, you’ll interact with other NPCs and ghouls, and you’ll want to have enough money on hand to buy important items. Some Fallout 3 cheats exploit little glitches in the game so you can build up as much money as you want. For example, it’s possible to pick a character’s pocket, leave, and then repeat the process. Another method has you stealing caps from a ghoul, leaving the area, and returning to steal more caps. Money is important, but when it comes to fighting, you’re really going to want to have some stimpacks. Some players have had difficulty with that, and therefore, you can also find guides to help you build up an infinite supply of stimpacks and other items. And when those items start to fill up your inventory, check out a few tips on how to carry more items with you and where to store the rest.

Skills and stimpacks alone won’t help you, of course. This isn’t the sort of game where you’ll be running from your enemies. You’ll want to stand and fight, so Fallout 3 has a wide range of weapons for you to acquire and use. Some are trickier to find than others, like the Alien Blaster. If you really want it, but you don’t know how to get it, feel free to check out a guide. That’s not the only weapon you can find help for, either. The A3-Plasma Rifle, Vengeance Laser Turret, and many more all have guides to make sure you get them.

Fallout 3 is a big game. If you find yourself feeling a little lost, there’s no harm in looking up some hints on how to get into the Megaton Armory, for example. You can also learn how the Feral Ghoul Mask can help you. And maybe you just want to learn some secrets, whether it’s about a specific glitch or an Easter egg like the guard named Stockholm. Yes, there is a lot to do and discover in Fallout 3, enough to keep you entertained for a long, long time.

On November 22, 2013, the zombie apocalypse began. At least, it began in a fictional city, for a fictional man named Nick Ramos, for players who bought the Xbox One exclusive Dead Rising 3. An open world game like its predecessors, it boasted a larger world with more content than any other game in the Dead Rising series. There are zombies to fight, survivors to save, and much to discover across the city. Whether you plan to use additional features like the Kinect or SmartGlass, or just plan to sit down with your controller, there is no need to go unprepared.

First, how are you going to get around? There are times when traveling on foot will just be too slow. It is good to have a vehicle, but it will be even better if you can get your hands on a Super Vehicle. Seek out the blueprints and materials to craft yourself a Super Vehicle, and look up some Dead Rising 3 cheats to find a list of all the Super Vehicles, their blueprint locations, and the combination required to create them.

Good, you have a means of transportation. You’ll still need a good weapon. Before you close down that page of cheats, take a look at the list of weapon blueprints and their locations. You’ll want to be able to find some of them, as well. That will definitely help you out.

Wait, what’s this? As you were on your way to find the blueprint of your choice, you rescued a survivor? Excellent. Just don’t let that poor person die. You will also find survivor protection tips amongst the Dead Rising 3 cheats. Make a note of all the little tricks and methods you can use to ensure you aren’t the only one to survive the zombies.

Of course, after a while, your weapons might start feeling a little underpowered. Don’t worry, there are bigger and better weapons for you to make—Super Weapons. There are several different types of Super Weapons, and within each group, you have to get them in order instead of rushing immediately to get the most powerful one, but you can use yet another guide to help you. What will it be? Bombs? Dragons? Reapers? Bears? Check them all out and see what works best for you.

While you’re at it, you might come across some special magazines. These will grant you various perks and boosts to tilt the odds in your favor, so try to find them all. Once again, you can use a guide to find all of them.

So you have vehicles, weapons, magazines, survivors to protect—is that all there is? Of course not! Take a little time to read about some of the other Dead Rising 3 cheats, such as the unlockables and Easter eggs. They’ll be sure to bring a smile to your face, even in the midst of the zombie apocalypse. Enjoy your time with the newest Dead Rising game, and never forget that there is a supply of cheats waiting for you whenever you need a little assistance or a nudge in the right direction. Good luck, show those zombies that you are prepared to survive, and above all else, have fun.

Just a quick blog post to introduce myself... my name is Grungey (get it - like the music?) and I love playing games on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. I'm kinda lucky that way in that I've been able to save up enough for all three systems.

At the moment I have to say I'm pretty addicted to Titanfall on the Xbox One (obviously) but to be honest I can see myself getting sick of that pretty quick. Afterwards I'll be looking forward to playing Infamous: Second Son on my PS4 (I like to play/concentrate on only one game at a time).

On the PC side of things I play mostly some World of Warcraft (yes, there are those of us that still do!) and also don't mind logging in to play The Old Republic every now and then. Man that coulda been such a cool game... But I still like it regardless so what the heck right.

So for me it's pretty much MMORPG on PC and everything else on console. Hope to see you around and look forward to reading some other interesting blogs!
