Expansions – July 2018

Game Cache Magazine

JULY 2018

Game Galleries

The main focus of Game Cache is to provide actual gameplay screenshots so that you know how games actually look since the majority of publishers use bullshots to promote their games today. During the month of June, two new galleries were uploaded and the Game Galleries were revamped to make browsing easier.

New Galleries

The Revamp

Game Galleries are no longer contained within blog posts, which makes browsing the galleries and browsing the blog much easier since the two are now separated.

Each game has its own gallery and from the main page you can see how many images are in each gallery. Simply click on the game that you want to view screenshots for and browse.

Browsing screenshots is also much easier now, because the lightboxes are here!

Above is a sample gallery with screenshots from NieR:Automata, Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, and Vampyr.

DOOM 2016

The 2016 reboot of Doom is probably one of the best shooters in recent history. High-energy, rock music, fast, and tough. Fire, destruction, demons, and glory kills.

DOOM Eternal

In 2019 we will likely get to play a new Doom, but this time we aren't on Mars anymore. It looks like hell has come to the Earth. Get ready to rip and tear!

Details are still scarce since Bethesda only teased Doom Eternal at E3, but more demons types, weapons, and a stronger Doom Slayer are to be expected. More details will be provided at Quakecon, which begins on August 9 and runs until August 12.

Game Cache Store

You probably already noticed that the Game Cache website has a completely new layout, but did you notice the Game Cache Store? Game Cache sells games now. Our prices our low too, but the stock is severely limited so you'll have to act fast for these good deals.

Our prices are lower than the prices during Steam Summer Sale 2018.

This is a legit store that you can trust. All keys are authentic and the store is secure. You will receive a genuine Steam key immediately at purchase.

If any technical difficulties occur while trying to use the Game Cache Store please email [email protected] and you will recieve a response within 24-36 hours.

What I Am Playing

My eye has been on Ni no Kuni II for some time before it released, but for some bewildering reason I have not purchased Ni no Kuni II until this previous week during the Steam Summer Sale. I regret not purchasing this masterpiece when it first released, because Ni no Kuni II is wonderful.

A full screenshot gallery for Ni no Kuni II is in the works, but honestly just play it. It's beautiful, charming and fun. I have not played Breath of the Wild, because I don't want to purchase a Nintendo Switch, but I feel like Ni no Kuni II could feel the void for fellow non-Switch owners.

When Ni no Kuni II first caught my eye I thought the protagonist was female, but no...Evan is a boy. I spend more time playing as Roland, though because Roland has a gun and if you've ever taken an English course you'll know that that means that Roland is running around with at least three penises: his sword, his gun, and his actual penis. You can have up to three swords equipped at once though.

Despite purchasing Ni No Kuni II at a discount, this game is worth the full $59.99 USD price tag.

EXPANSIONS - THANK YOU READERS

When I started GAME CACHE, it was just a blog on Tumblr where I periodically posted 10 screenshots from games that I was playing. I was fed up with the amount of bullshots appearing on store pages and in promotional material and wanted to provide a way for fellow gamers to see what the games actually look like.

I wanted to do more with GAME CACHE, though and have spent the last few months thinking about what I could do to grow the site. Game galleries, reviews, miniseries, and a monthly newsletter.

The game galleries will continue and will become more frequent again. Every time I upload a game gallery, I will also write a review for the game. I haven't quite yet started writing reviews, but it's something to expect. If I fall in love with a game, I will do a miniseries documenting my time with it. The first miniseries just started ("The Adventures of Vant-aj"). And this of course is the second monthly newsletter. I'm calling it EXPANSIONS and I thank you for reading!
