'Friday The 13th: The Game' Is The Best Movie-Driven Video Game Yet

A game review.

In "Friday The 13th: The Game," players are divided into two balanced teams: the seven counselors against the machete-wielding psycho himself, Jason Vorhees. Trust me, while going up against Jason Vorhees, this is balanced. On the counselor side, your goal is to escape the clutches of Jason by escaping through any means necessary with your option of boat, vehicle, the authorities, or trying to survive the time limit in the round. But it's not so easy as it sounds. Nothing is easy while Jason's around.

Each one of these tasks requires multiple steps to pull them off, which makes the game much more entertaining and tense by giving Jason time to hunt down his victims. Each map has the items randomly generated to be scattered across the maps. When you start the game as a counselor, you always gamble with the chance that you could die within the first five minutes of the game. If you're lucky enough, your teammates have called support from Jason's rival Tommy Jarvis, which acts as your second chance at escaping Jason's clutches. There is a way of killing Jason, but it's in a very long multi-step process and is very unrealistic to do in a public match. It takes up too much time, and it's easier for Jason to spot you and your group.

Without a doubt, it's much more exciting to play as Jason, but with that big of a lobby, you mostly get stuck as playing a counselor, which is still fun for me but not for others On Jason's side, it's your job to hunt down each of the counselors using your special set of skills which consist of Morph, Sense, Shift, and Stalk, and if you are having trouble as Jason, the game activates Jason's rage mode mid-match, which enhances all his abilities and allows him to break doors and walls instantly.

I love how the in-game currency is implemented in this game. At the end of the match, whether you escaped, were killed by Jason, or did the hacking and slashing as Jason, everyone gets XP and CP from all the actions they have done. Your CP can either be spent on additional perks and skills for the counselors or special executions which can be performed by Jason Vorhees. Leveling up unlocks new outfits for counselors and different variations of Jason from his past movies.

Game chat is recommended because the developers made it more realistic. Voice chat is limited to proximity, so it's best to find a group and stick with them. Be careful though: If Jason is nearby, he can hear and foil your plans, so keep those mics muted when he's around. When Jason is in pursuit of a counselor, the music will change drastically to an '80s-like slasher chase scene. The music is soft and melodic and usually drowned out by the characters' and Jason's sound effects.

Overall, "Friday The 13th: The Game" is an excellent game to play with friends and is a game that is able to create new friendships whether playing as a counselor or playing as Jason. Even with the bugs and the glitches, "Friday The 13th: The Game" is hands down one of the best movie-driven video games of all time.

The 7 Most Powerful Superpowers in Marvel Comics

Maybe you wish you could fly, but there's much better powers than soaring the skies.

Throughout the years of Marvel comics, superheroes and villains showed us the depths of having superpowers.

Along with the expansion of Marvel superpowers, writers made sure to focus on broadening the potential of what a single power could do. What superpowers do you believe are the most powerful in the Marvel Universe. No doubt many of you would respond with generic choices such as the Hulk's super strength, Spider-Man's wall crawling, Ms. Marvel's flight, but I assure you many of Marvel's favorites don't come anywhere close to possessing Alpha superpowers. I'm not referencing the forgotten character with abnormal or useless abilities. I'm talking about characters who aren't in the spotlight, but standing right behind it.

The most powerful superpowers in the Marvel Universe will blow your mind.

7. Elasticity

Mr. Fantastic

The power to stretch your body into whatever length and form. In the Marvel Comics, Mr. Fantastic could convert the mass of his body into a highly flexible state. With this power, he can absorb kinetic energy, to the extents of becoming a barrier between his team and a 150 billion ton mountain. Elasticity grants the character practically an immunity to death. Their skin can't be torn or slashed. Let's not forget the size alteration and shape-shifting aspects of elasticity superpowers. It will take a strong force to bring an elastic character down because they are immensely durable to attacks. It is impossible to kill them which if they remain in elastic form, it could grant them immortality.

6. Nature Manipulation

Meggan

I know how this seems like a joke, but manipulating the forces of nature is one of the most powerful powers to ever want. Meggan Puceanu could manipulate nature which gave her the abilities to sense the emotions of all living things, sense electromagnetic forces, air currents, and even see telepathic communication. It also gave her the ability to shapeshift into any animal or human in response to her emotional state. The greatest ability nature manipulation gives is to power to control the elements. Water, air, earth, fire, and even energy. Imagine creating tsunami's with a thought, causing earthquakes with a word, or extinguishing a forest-fire with the wave of a hand. The five elements are what makes our world and if you can control them, then you have limitless power over what you can do.

5. Teleportation/Portal Creation

Magik (Illyana Rasputina)

How would you feel if you could go anywhere in the universe? For someone like Magik, that's a thing she could do every day. She can create stepping discs (portals) that can teleport herself across interstellar distances or through time and space. Imagine teleporting to the time you fell in front of your crush or failed the most important quiz in your entire life. Maybe it's not the past you're worried about, it's the future. With these powers, you would be unstoppable. You could travel to any place at any time and prevent people from being killed. I won't even mention teleporting into bank vaults. No one would be able to catch you and in a way, that's way better than intangibility and invisibility

4. Regenerative Healing Factor

We've all since the icon seen in "X-Men: The Last Stand" where the Phoenix is disintegrating everything into nothing, but Wolverine somehow in one piece as he pushes towards her. The only reason he wasn't obliterated into smithereens is that of his accelerated regenerative healing factor. Unlike typical characters with healing factors, his healing is far faster and efficient. He can heal from numerous gunshot wounds, severe burns, and regenerate limbs within a few hours. And the healing goes even further. It can cure diseases, sicknesses, curses, trauma, and also provides an extended lifespan by decelerating the effects of aging. You could be 100 years old and still look the way you did at fifteen. It's near immortality. It's an even better power when you can transfer or extract the essence of your healing factor to duplicate and bless others. There are various heights the accelerated healing factor can reach, but it should always be one of your top go-to powers.

3. Magic

Scarlet Witch

Magic is a very complex superpower. There are many different forms of it in the Marvel Universe. Druidic, Chaos, Blood, Hellfire, Mystic, Odin-Force, Necromancy, Quantum, Technomancy, Voodoo, and general magic. The most notable wielders being Scarlet Witch and Doctor Strange. Scarlet Witch manipulated Chaos magic in order to warp reality at will. With a few words, she stripped almost an entire race of mutants of their superpowers. She can channel magic from demons, cast hexes, and manipulate the field of probability. Technically, by using magic you can mimic anyone's power and achieve what they can do. The range of abilities is beyond unfathomable when magic is involved. If the magic wielder is skilled enough, the effects of their spells may weave into reality and remain forever. Magic is very dangerous, but still one of the most powerful powers in the Marvel Universe.

2. Psionic Manipulation

Hellion

Psionic Manipulation is more than just moving things with your mind. You can sense the emotions of living things around you and telepathically communicate with others. When this power is mastered to its full potential, you will have visions of the future, be able to teleport and manipulate raw psychic energy. We're talking about affecting matter on a subatomic level. Disintegrating matter into nothing or creating matter from nothing. Such as forming energy out of thin air or turning silver into gold. The mental part of it will give you the power to ascend to the Astral Plane and mind control living beings on a world-wide scale. Hellion used his psionic powers to make him fly and form impenetrable force fields. The force of his mind power is so great that he can will himself to fly at least twice the speed of sound. The psychic energy powers super strength behind his attacks and he can control matter on a molecular level to scatter it and reform it back together. Psionic Manipulation speaks for itself, there's no way you can harm or even attempt to harm someone with these powers.

1. Cosmic Manipulation

The Phoenix Five

Cosmic Manipulation is such an exciting power to have. It's not often talked about, so many of you might not know what it is. The superpower gives the character the power to manipulate different forms of cosmic energy. Many characters in the Marvel Universe have this ability. Jean Grey, Rachel Summers, Storm, Thanos, Franklin Richards, Silver Surfer, and many more. It is an extremely powerful ability to possess. You can channel cosmic energies to produce a number of effects. Most often in Marvel Comics, the cosmic energies augmented the superpowers of the character to a universe-ending level. The most powerful wielder of this superpower being the Phoenix. It possessed Jean Grey and augmented her psionic powers to where she could create psychic flames that burned everything into nothing. It also made her transformed her into one of the mightest telekinetic and telepath in the whole Marvel Universe. With Cosmic Manipulation, you can advance the evolution of humans by radiating and also manipulate all forms of energy. At it's maxed potential, you can manipulate everything and all natural forces on a cosmic level. You could have Hulk's strength, Professor X's telepathy, Magneto's magnetic powers, and all of the above. We're talking about altering the universe and remaking it in whatever form you see fit. You would be foolish not to know that Cosmic Manipulation is THE most powerful superpower in the Marvel Universe.

This concludes the 7 most powerful superpowers in the Marvel Universe. Was there a superpower that should have been included on the list. Do you think these are the top superpower in Marvel? If not, what would you change? Drop a comment below!

8 Tips To Stay Alive Longer In 'PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds'

It takes some skill, but there are definitely some tricks that you can use to get through to the end.

3

"PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" (PUBG) is a key shooter that gives players a chance to go face-to-face for survival under conflict royale rules. Since it arrived on PC's in 2017, PUBG has gained a massive following and has expanded its versatility to other consoles. Governing as the last man or lady standing and getting that "Winner Winner Chicken Dinner" is what everyone wants, but so few get.

Would you like to enjoy the sweet taste of that chicken supper presented with a side of crazy murders and boasting rights? Following below tips from the total masters will fill in the alcoves and corners in your now flawed run.

1. Always use headphone to track the footsteps of other players.

Your playing will improve tremendously if you use headphones. They help to track the footsteps of enemies that show on the minimap and also let you know where the enemy is easier than if you just play with speakers on your TV or computer.

2. Customize your game settings, especially in mobile.

With PUBG mobile players can change their control plot in pretty much any manner they like. You can move the controls to anywhere you want so your dexterity is at its best when you're playing. Also, try out the gyro or clutch method to improve your kill rating. Thank me later.

3. Choose your landing area wisely.

Contacting the ground on the correct spot is significant as everything necessary is a projectile attempting to thump you down. Picking the correct area could be one of your most important decisions as the high plunder places are likewise the high-hazard zones. There are a few hot zones on each PUBG map, so make sure you're familiar with the one you're playing.

4. Use grenades and cocktails when you can.

There are a few settings in PUBG that incorporate Frag Grenades, Molotov Cocktails, Smoke Grenades, and Stun Grenades. These prove extremely valuable in order to occupy, cover or murder foes amid the imperial interactivity. Hence, it's probably best to keep a couple with you at all times, just in case.

5. Use vehicles for long runs.

Not in The Zone? Rather than gasping your way there, using vehicles will make your life so much easier. You can without much of a stretch detect a vehicle or bicycle on the roadside. However, before you approach the vehicle, examine the close-by territory to seek out an adversary who may be camping in the region.

6. Choose the right pair of guns and scopes for your needs.

Not every scope is made for every gun. For example, holographic sight on a rifle is definitely not something you probably need to survive. When you get scopes, they are connected to particular firearms. Physically swap them around to make sure you have the best combination.

7. Always engage with your teammates if you are playing duo or squad.

This enables you to strategize and work with your partner amid teams and squad modes. The amusement accompanies local voice talk which gives you a chance to speak with your colleague and chase as a group. The amusement will utilize your mobile speaker and receiver. For best execution, headphones with a microphone are definitely best (if you aren't using them already).

8. Start shooting when you mean to.

It's very regular for players to get energized at whatever point they see somebody. In any case, it's important to practice restriction and not simply begin shooting without knowing what you're shooting at. In the event that you see another player and they don't see you, try to improve your position if you can and guarantee that they're inside the scope of your weapon. That way, you'll have the option to complete the slaughter instead of getting in a superfluous shootout where you risk your life as well.
