Hey Everyone, Prodaj here! We here at Critikal Zone usually report on the AAA gaming community as tons of other media outlets do. While the AAA titles remain on our radar, we are also branching out to our own community to seek out and spotlight local talent. We decided to join in on an independent gaming convention. I didn’t know what to expect when I came to the small conference room in Sharonvil...[Read More]

We have all been big proponents of Twitch. Since its inception in 2011, the platform has been the hub for many people to watch others playing video games. The site has been integral to popular gaming tournaments for mammoths like DOTA, League of Legends, Overwatch, World of Warcraft, PUBG and now Fortnight. A 100-player PvP Battle Royale game that has exploded in the past month with constant updat...[Read More]
The Good Overwatch League has put Overwatch in an even larger spotlight than usual. When the game released in May of 2016, the game received high praise and even won Game of The Year. However, no one could’ve have imagined that Blizzard would set up an official league of its own almost a year and a half later that would mostly be successful in viewings alone with a consistent 100,000+ viewer...[Read More]

Archery, from the Latin word Arcus, is the act of using a bow to propel an arrow.

The two characters I am exploring have made the bow and arrow very effective in their capable hands. In a universe f...[Read More]
I’ll keep this short, but this year has been an amazing year for video games. 2018 promises even more spectacular releases with games like Last of Us Part II, Red Dead Redemption II and God of War just to name a few. In all honesty, all of these will be RPG’s but I think the rest the crew here at Critikal Zone will share theirs and provide a bit more insight to our diversity in gaming ...[Read More]
Hey everyone, just giving you all a glimpse of our time at LexPlay!
Hey Critikal ones, Prodaj here with a quick post about two worlds that sometimes collide but always draw a reaction: professional wrestling and video games. Being a primarily video game centric entity, we here at Critikal love when worlds collide. With WWE 2K18 doing well, and Ric Flair’s ’30 For 30′ set to premiere tomorrow on ESPN, what better time to look at some wrestling/vid...[Read More]
Indie VS. AAA. Where is the gaming industry headed? What’s up everybody? It’s King KyBa here with a podcast that we did with Nerdgasm85 a0bout which is better when it comes to video game production, triple A or Indie?
Hey Everyone, Prodaj here again. This part 3 and the last part of my series “What happened to Cheat codes?” What happened to Cheat codes? Pt. 3 Enter the Internet Some say that cheat codes were a trend. Also like most trends, they eventually fade away in the light of another bigger trend. I am of the opinion that the Cheat Culture was NOT a trend but a way of life; lived by those who doubled down ...[Read More]
