What are the best Retro, Magical and Sci-Fi Game Bows Ever?

Who doesn’t love the good old bow and arrow in a video game? From Zelda to Crysis there’s a bow and arrow featured on just about every platform imaginable.

Retro games have bows, sci-fi games have bows, there’s magical variants and just plain weird bows. There’s a host of crossbows and there have been many attempts to make archery a fun sport on both consoles and PC’s.

The folks at targetcrazy.com have compiled a list of the best 50. If you want to see the whole list and the winners in each category, take a look at the full article here, but scroll down to see a neat graphic that shows their top 20 overall.

The Sacred Bow – Kid Icarus – The Retro King?

The favorite bow from older games is the enhanced Sacred Bow wielded by Pit in Kid Icarus. While he starts out wielding a short-range bow, the Sacred Bow lets him fire arrow much faster and farther. Pit has an unlimited supply of arrows and can use Fire Arrows to deal more damage. By the time Pit returned in Kid Icarus: Uprising, the bow was only one of many weapons he used, but in the original two games, it was his primary weapon of choice.

The Fall of Destiny 2? Why People Are Giving Up on Bungie’s Latest Title

Destiny 2 launched to rave reviews, happy customers and near-complete domination of the video-games market. It broke a number of sales records and saw its active player-base hit over 3 million users. The launch was nothing short of massive and Bungie enjoyed great success with its Destiny sequel, but this inflated success appears to short lived.

The console population of Destiny 2 is dwindling, with the player rate drop off picking up speed rapidly and showing no signs of leveling out just yet. From its peak of 3.5 million active users, the game is currently down to 1.8 million — its audience nearly slashed in half over the course of just one month.

While the game is soon to be released on the PC, which will likely see user numbers climb (briefly at least) the dramatic drop in players does make us wonder what happened to the popularity of Bungie’s big 2017 title.

So why are so many people leaving Destiny 2 and not coming back?

7 Reasons Why: You Should Play Indie Games


The number of games that are available to the public is bewildering!

On steam alone, there are 17,801 games accessible to download – that doesn’t include all the games that are exclusive for console.

What’s interesting is that the vast majority of these games on Steam are Indie Games.

Indie Studios typically produce shorter games with a small team of developers and a limited budget.

Seeing as they have less of a budget, the instalments in this genre are stereotyped to be bad quality games and therefore receive a bad reception.


While not every indie game is perfect, plenty of them offer more enjoyment and detail than some AAA games!

Who are we to tell you to play these games?!

A Gamer’s Thoughts: May I Cheat, Daddy?

Stressed man playing on pad

I must admit something, sometimes I do cheat in games.

Not in online games, but sometimes in offline games. And, I only do it when I have beaten the game before.

But, I started to think, what effect does cheating have on the gaming industry? Let’s look at cheating in video games, shall we? Before I give you my thoughts, I’d love you to write your own opinions on the content of the article in the comment section down below.

Cheating in online play

In my first matches on Halo online, I was dying left and right. People called me names but I honestly didn’t mind. After a few rounds, I became a somewhat valuable asset to the team. After a week or two, I learned a lot about how I play, what my strong suits are and what my weak points are.

4 of the Greatest Video Game Easter Eggs

Easter eggs

Drawing inspiration from the popular children’s game, a video game ‘Easter egg’ is a secret feature, hidden message or inside joke that is often placed within a video game. Unless you’re reading about them on this website, players must put in a high level of game time in order to discover the hidden message or unlockable secrets within the game. They are often discovered by serious gamers who devote enough time to fully exploring every aspect of their favorite title.

We’ve seen a lot of great Easter eggs over the years, but here are those Easter eggs we consider to be some of the absolute best. Sometimes Easter eggs are just to keep us on our toes, a friendly nod to fellow developers and something to make us smile. Other times, Easter eggs can add another layer to the story, frighten us, help us. Whatever it might be, Easter Eggs help video gamers feel connected to the developers and the game as a whole.
