World Cup Without England Fans?

The ticket sales have been opened and so far no one is happy about the number. Not even FIFA. Until today, the ticket sale is less than the sales we have from 4 years ago.

The England fans have been allocated with 30,711 tickets so far, but even with less than 2 months until the kick-off, there are still so many tickets available for sale. According to FIFA, England fans are currently at the 11th of the most numerous fans travelling to Russia.

Four years ago, FIFA allocated 51,222 tickets for England fans to go Brazil to attend the 2014 World Cup. That amoung put the England fans at the 6th of the traveling fans among football fans from other countries.

God of War Review

The greatest games are not those with millions of dollars in the budget or created by the world’s best developer or studio. The best games are those made with different and strong aspects to create an engrossing and unified whole. The plot should be fantastic, yet easy enough to understand. The game should unite with the players as if the player has become its main character. This is what a great game is and the God of War.

You will enter a new world, inspired by Norse mythology and play a familiar, yet reimagined character. The game is full of emotions and thanks to one continuous camera that shoots every scene in the game, you will never lose any crucial moment during the game. It will put you right at the heart of the game: the fatherly relationship between Kratos and Atreus, his young son. However, even that sounds simple, you should get ready to explore the gorgeous world and enter an immensely satisfying combat whenever it takes place.

Thanks to the simple plot, you will easily understand how the game works and even experience the whole tense since the very first minute. The father and his son begin their journey right after losing their beloved wife and mother. Atreus, who has a deep and strong bond with his mother, decided to follow his father and set their feet to the vast outside world with only one goal in their head: to carry out the last will of Atreus’ mother.

The display is set up to bring a journey-like visual. You can easily spot a peak in the distance and even go there. However, since it is the God of War, there is never an easy path. There are several obstacles, including those made by gods, that you have to beat. There are threats everywhere that even a pro will need at least 2 days playing the game non-stop to complete the game. Don’t worry, the first one will get before your eyes in the opening hours.

If you played God of War before, you should know how ‘colourful’ life Kratos has. Triumph, loss, and killing are everywhere. That life continues in this game and forms his character. The only difference is, he has now entered a new stage in his life. Even so, there are things to do since he is still a stranger in the new place and the only place where he can rely on is his son.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Review

Despite its polished aesthetic and beautiful looking graphics, it seems Star Wars Battlefront 2 has become its own worst enemy. This article delves into the things that stand out in the latest outing by EA. The review focuses primarily on the game’s campaign mode.

Campaign Mode

First of all, the campaign mode is a new addition to the game and is a welcome development. It is set in the events following the end of the Return of the Jedi and follows the character of Iden Verso.  The story itself is interesting enough as players are put in the shoes of an imperial officer who is slowly coming to grip with the reality of the Empire’s fall.

However, while the premise itself seems interesting enough, the problem lies in its execution. The pacing is extremely rushed and this has a grave effect not only in character development but on the gameplay as well.

This is mainly due to EA’s efforts to pander to the fandom, as players are essentially given a tour of the Star Wars galaxy. In the end, the game would leave you wanting for a deeper and more engaging experience overall.

Oklahoma City Thunders: Why they Need A Back-Up Center

The OKC Thunder has been on a roll lately. They have won no less than eight of their past 10 games. With a record like that, there is certainly no denying the team is on fire. In fact, they are moving closer and closer to the playoffs following the consecutive defeat of the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers at the Staples Center.

Of course, this is not to say that the team is perfect. If anything else, the numbers from the previous games would reveal a particular weak spot for the squad. For instance, in their victory against the Clippers, the Thunders let their opponents score 64 points in the paint, 46 points of which during the first half alone.

The issue here is the fact that their lines in the front court are extremely thin. Steven Adams is their primary big man. Yet, they have no reliable back-up. The problem would be exacerbated if Adams would get into foul trouble early on as they would be left even more exposed to attacks on the paint and the post.
