Dr.DisRespect Rants About Battle Royale Games, Says He’s Bored

How much Battle Royale games can one play before they burn out you ask? Well, famous Twitch streamer Dr.DisRespect might have the answer. In a recent stream, he opened up about his feelings on the matter and how he was bored.

The short clip above is from when he was streaming Fortnite and decided to quit the game because he was bored of it and said that “he was falling asleep playing it” before he ended the stream. After playing the Call of Duty Blackout Beta, he absolutely loved it and has since wanted more. “I really don’t feel like playing anything else right now,” he said. “I am so bored. I don’t want to play any of these games. You just don’t understand. As someone that just wants the best, the fastest, the most dominant future, the tech, and being teased with it for just a couple days there, it just … I don’t want to play sorry-ass web browser Ring of Elysium.”

Yep, he even hits out at Ring of Elysium and is tired of the whole Battle Royale phenomena in general. This isn’t an uncommon sentiment though as a huge number of gamers are tired of the Battle Royale phenomena and how every game is now trying to be the next PUBG or Fortnite. All we know is that Dr.DisRespect wants to play CoD Blackout really bad and he might be done with PUBG and Fortnite for a while.

EA Reveals FIFA 19 Ultimate Team Odds, And It’s Disastrous

FIFA 19 is finally out and with it begins the quest to become the best FIFA player online. While some choose to stick to good old regular division matches, many love the Ultimate Team game mode and its mechanics. Well, this year thanks to the whole loot box debacle, EA has shared the odds for the pack unlocks, and oh boy are they not what you’d want.

Image Credit: Eurogamer

As seen from the image the chance to unlock a “Ones to Watch Player” is Less than 1%. Ones To Watch are those players cards that are dynamic which means they get a permanent rating boost throughout the season if they perform well. Cristiano Ronaldo also has a Ones to Watch card which will probably make that card the most valuable card right now.

Back to the chances, you have less than 1% of a chance to get those cards. That less than 1% could even mean a 0.001% chance or a 0.01 % chance. And this for the Premium Electrum Players Pack which is a type of Promo pack. While players can now see how much the odds are against their favour, I doubt it will change the fact that people will still spend their money on pack openings because of the thrill of it.  As always though, make decisions responsibly because every person’s decision counts when it comes to loot boxes and games as your wallet is what does the talking.

Conception Plus Details Game Systems

Spike Chunsoft has released new information about Conception Plus: Ore no Kodomo wo Undekure! introducing the RPG’s game systems.

If you missed it last week, read up on the game’s story and main characters here. The screenshots in today’s update all appeared in the gallery of our previous coverage.

Get the new details below.

■ Game Systems

Go into Dungeons with Star Children

Conception Plus: Ore no Kodomo wo Undekure!

Itsuki Yuge was summoned as the “God’s Gift” to save the magical world of Granvania on the verge of crisis. The only thing that can cleanse the energy known as “impurity” that covers the world is God’s Gift and the Star Children born between him and the 12 Star Maidens. In order to save the world, Itsuki and the Star Children must survive the Stardust Labyrinths and cleanse the world of its impurities.

The 12 Star Maidens

Conception Plus: Ore no Kodomo wo Undekure!

The Star Children that fight the impurities are born between the God’s Gift Itsuki and the 12 Star Maidens. The more your bonds deepen as you communicate with the Star Maidens, the greater the power your Star Children are born with, so be sure to communicate and get familiar with the Star Maidens. Also, as your bonds deepen, each Star Maiden’s hidden past and secrets may also come to light…

Busy Battles with 13 Party Members

Conception Plus: Ore no Kodomo wo Undekure!

In addition to the protagonist Itsuki, your party can consist of three teams of four Star Children for a total of 13 party members. The game uses a command selection-style battle system where positioning plays a key role. Gain the upper hand in battle by attacking from a position where you can target the enemy’s back or weak point.

Love Ceremony

Conception Plus: Ore no Kodomo wo Undekure!

Itsuki and the 12 Star Maidens can participate in a “Love Ceremony” in which they pour their souls into a “Matryoshka” to produce a Star Child. The Star Child’s power will vary depending on the strength of your bond with the Star Maiden and the type of Matryoshka used. Also, the Star Child’s stat trends will differ depending on the Star Maiden, so you should consider the class you need for your current party when choosing a partner for your Love Ceremony.

Conception Plus: Ore no Kodomo wo Undekure! is due out for PlayStation 4 this winter in Japan.
