Caffeine-dependant, not-so-hardcore gamer who for some reason loves every FPS game with a toxic fanbase - Rainbow Six Siege and Valorant to name a few. I love to write and when I am not doing that, you will find me bingeing anime and casually banging my head against a wall trying to fix a bug in my code because that's what a Computer Science major does.


  1. What a great time to be a gamer. Genshin Impact, Overwatch 2 and Phantasy Star New Genesis 2 are all F2p titles. I hope at some point they add a platinum trophy for Phantasy Star New Genesis 2 like they added a platinum for Genshin Impact. Although i doubt it considering Phantasy Star New Genesis just got a western release after 10 years.

  2. Excellent article thank’s for submitting this post such a great read very informative alot of valuable information in this post really nice article
