The Flash: “Therefore I Am” Review on gamesread


Clifford DeVoe is more dangerous than he looks.

It was a hectic week for team Flash. Even as Iris put the finishing touches on her wedding plans, Barry and Joe finally came face-to-face with Clifford DeVoe. Needless to say, wasn’t at all what they were expecting.

We’ll have our review of “Therefore I Am” up a bit later tonight. Until then, let us know what you thought of the new episode in the comments below.

Turns out Talkatoos are even more helpful than we thought.

A glitch has been discovered that allows players to get absurdly high scores in Super Mario Odyssey’s jump-rope challenge.

Kotaku reports that a newly discovered glitch has the leaderboard filled with scores all the way up to 99,999. This method has been dubbed the “Talkatoo glitch” as it uses the helpful bird close to the jump-rope challenge to cause the camera to freeze and suspend animations.

To get the glitch to work, players throw Cappy at the bird and talk to him just before Cappy reaches his mark, which eventually leads to Mario frozen in place as the rope moves cleanly around him.

Played as intended, the jump-rope mini game consists of a challenge which sees how many times the players can successfully jump over the rope, with the Jump Rope Hero Power Moon available at 30 jumps in a row and Jump Rope Genius awarded at 100 jumps. You can check out your score (as well as the scores of your friends and players worldwide) on a nearby leaderboard.

Super Mario Odyssey recently made it into our top 25 Nintendo Switch games. For more help with power moons, check out our wiki for every Mario Odyssey Power Moon location.

gamesread – Coco Review


Seize your moment.

Both figuratively and literally, Coco is Pixar’s most human film. The movie delivers a compelling story centered around memorable characters that feel alive — even as they’re taking a journey through the Land of the Dead. The animation is top-notch as well, which adds to Coco’s effectiveness in telling its story.

The central conflict in Coco revolves around aspiring musician Miguel (newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) gaining new insights about his family’s history and their relationship to music. Miguel’s hometown has a rich musical history, but his family views music as a curse. Instead of singing songs and playing instruments, Miguel must put all of his energy into the family shoe business, which he despises. Miguel’s search for musical independence away from his family is deeply engaging.

Exit Theatre Mode

Throughout his adventure, Miguel must come to grips with the knowledge that what he thinks he knows about his ancestors may be inaccurate. The pains of growing up and learning harsh truths are powerful obstacles for Miguel to confront in the Land of the Dead. Miguel’s quest is about so much more than music. The theme of family and its importance is integral to Coco’s story, and whenever Miguel loses site of its significance, things go horribly wrong.

Gonzalez is incredible as Miguel, displaying a wide range of skills for an actor so young. He manipulates his voice in multiple ways to convey sadness or joy, and it speaks to his transformative abilities as an entertainer. An example of this can be found when Miguel is playing his guitar and singing along with his favorite musician, Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt). As he sings, the longing in his voice for a life outside the confines of his hometown is palpable. His emotions come through with each note that he belts out. There’s not a single moment where his performance falters.

Miguel’s companion through most of his journey in the Land of the Dead is Hector, played by the talented Gael Garcia Bernal (Mozart in the Jungle). Like Gonzalez, Bernal is fantastic, as he deftly creates Coco’s most complex character. He’s equal parts charm and insecurity, but to delve deeper into why the character is so rich would be to invite spoilers. The Mexican actor gives a weight and distinction to Hector’s voice that makes him seem wiser than his years. For someone who doesn’t have a lot of experience in voice-over work, Bernal distinguishes himself here.

The directors made an interesting and successful creative decision to include the prevalent use of Spanish language without including subtitles. It’s used in just the right way, so the viewer won’t feel lost in the moment, and with enough context clues for the audience to understand what is happening even if they don’t know what is actually being said. It’s one of many effective ways that the filmmakers embrace and celebrate the movie’s Mexican roots.

Exit Theatre Mode

As fine as many of the voice actors are, none of this gorgeous tale would work so well if not for its stellar animation. Disney Animation and Pixar keep one-upping each other year after year: Disney’s Moana was dazzling, but Pixar’s Coco kicks it up several notches with character models that look almost too real. The way the orange glow of the candles at a cemetery casts shadows over the faces of people visiting their loved ones is simply exquisite. Every frame — from Miguel’s hometown to the Land of the Dead — is brilliantly realized. The fact that you can see every wrinkle that outlines Mama Coco’s face in particular highlights the level of depth the animators are able to create. It’s scary at times how good Coco looks.

The Verdict

Pixar’s journey to the Land of the Dead was an ambitious undertaking, even for a studio that’s produced some of the best-animated films of the past 20 years. But Coco wonderfully explores familial themes, identity, and learning what it means to grow up in a world that isn’t perfect. Miguel’s trip is a representation of what it means to grow up and learn the truths about how life works outside the safe confines of home. Hector, Miguel and even the slobbery dog Dante are all characters I won’t soon forget.

gamesread – KOG Games Releases Elsword Insider Volume 2

The new video shows off all the benefits of the latest update for the game. Details below:

Secret Dungeon

  • Lowered Difficulty on Lv.70 ~ 89 Secret Dungeon(s) – This revamp was done so that players who are new to Secret Dungeons will have less trouble clearing them without dying multiple times; originally quite the daunting task.
  • Luto Mode is now available for Lv.90 and Up Secret Dungeons – This was done to bring players together that may be more closely geared/leveled so that the individual players should carry their own weight. In short, there should be fewer mistakes and needless wipes from under-geared players, and less trolling towards them in what used to be accidental entry to Lv.70 ~ 89 Luto Mode dungeons.
    •   – Lv. 70 ~ 89 players will be queued together unless a Lv.90+ character parties with lv.70 ~ 89 players.
    •   – All Lv.90 + characters will be queued together.
  • Instead of needing to go to a specific Village Blacksmith for Village specific Secret Dungeon Exchange or Upgrading needs, players will be able to Exchange/Upgrade all Secret Dungeon gear with any Blacksmith in any town.
  • Lowered the Upgrade costs required for Normal Secret Dungeon Gear (Grendized-Rank) so there will be less need to grind out Daily Quests when upgrading.

Heroic Dungeon

  • Heroic Dungeons are now easier and have only 1 difficulty level.
    •   – Players that have geared themselves out with upgraded Secret Dungeon Gear will have an easier time running Heroic Dungeons.
  • New (1) Difficulty Heroic Dungeons will yield Hell Difficulty Heroic Mode loot!
    •   – Because the loot from the Hell Difficulty Heroic Dungeons has been transferred to the new, lowered difficulty structure, players will receive more significant, relevant gear. Previously, players were at a risk of getting gear that was worse than what they'd have received from Secret Dungeons

Add's Energy Fusion Theory Dungeon

  • Daily Quests added for Add's Energy Fusion Theory Dungeon negate RNG so that players are guaranteed to receive the same amount of Energy Shards
  • For those that are extremely lucky (or unlucky) and get duplicate drops of the same Void-Type Weapons, they can now dismantle them and can get more Energy Shards

Elrianode Dungeon

  • For some players, just experiencing the end game story could be difficult. Some weren't geared enough but wanted to just complete/experience the story of Elsword. With the new Story Mode difficulty, they can now experience the Debrian Laboratory & El Tower Defense Dungeons at a significantly lower difficulty.
    •   – The difficulty is lowered and penalties like Resurrection Limits were removed from the El Tower Defense Dungeon in Story Mode to make it easier to complete.
  • Players no longer need to complete the previous region's Epic Quest lines in order to start the Elrianode region Epic Quest lines.
    •   – This makes it easier for those that are only after the Elrianode Equipment from the Elrianode Epic Quest lines.

Lanox, Atlas, and Elysion

  • The Lanox Epic Quest Line – Players no longer need to complete these to begin the Atlas Epic Quest line
  • Atlas Epic Quest Line – Players no longer need to complete these to begin the Elysion Epic Quest Line
    •   – This change allows players to pick up the respective quests wherever they please; just in case they out-leveled the Lanox or the Atlas Regions from grinding Secret Dungeons
  • All Elysion Dungeons will have their difficulty removed
    •   – You won't have to worry about mistakenly running the wrong difficulty dungeon for your Epic Quest Lines

Camilla's Skill Manual Quests

  • Intermediate, Advanced, and Expert Skill Manual Quests have been revamped
    •   – Expanded the Regions whereas players can acquire the required items to complete the Skill Manual quests
    •   – This revamp allows players to progress through the story while completing the Skill Manual Quests instead of being stuck in a specific region that they may have out-leveled (due to bad RNG/Not getting the drops they need)

Fever System

  • The Fever System has been revamped to become more useful/relevant
    •   – Players will no longer be forced to enter the 1 Bead "Awaken" status, sacking their desire to have the benefits of the preferred 3 Bead "Awaken" Status.

Another season of Game of Thrones has come and gone but please don’t tell me what happened–I’m waiting for the books. And yes, no need to say it, I am an idiot. But just like the end of every Game of Thrones season (I assume) someone or something has left a path of carnage in their wake, and now all that’s left to do is count the bodies. Did…anyone I may know get “Red Weddinged?” Wait, nope, forget I asked.

When it comes to stacking bodies no one does it quite as well or with as much flair as Cersei Lannister. That’s why at the start of season 7 we decided to put together a list of games that give you the opportunity to really let your inner Queen Regent shine through. She is still Queen Regent, right? No, no, don’t tell me.

Queen Regent or not, Cersei would approve of how these games encourage you to murder, pillage and just generally be kind of a bummer to be around. And while it’s not necessary to sinisterly cradle a goblet of wine while you play these games, I’m sure it wouldn’t hurt.

And hey, what do you guys think George R.R. Martin is doing right now? Think he’s writing? Sigh. No, neither do I.


It’s that time of year again. Halloween.The leaves are starting to turn. The crisp fall air has begun to nip at our flesh like an undead kitten. Homes around the neighborhood are strung up with fake cobwebs, and are guarded by inflatable bad guys (with presumably low HP). It’s a time when we gather around and place pumpkins in every crevice, stock up on pounds of cheap candy, and proclaim on Facebook how good a costume we could have made if we “only had the time”. It’s a celebration that has certainly gotten lost in it’s roots, yet here we are. In the frightening spirit of the occasion, developers of some of our favorite digital worlds have drawn up adventures so that even our avatars can enjoy the old Hallows Eve festivities.


Black Desert Online

Black Desert Online has an exciting package in store for players called Halloween in Wonderland. Upon jumping into a server, you will notice that the towns of Heidel, Valencia, Calpheon, and Velia have all gotten a scary facelift. The moon is blood-red, and all the streets are lit with Jack-O-Lanterns. You will have access to a special mission, in which the White Witch tasks you to take down the Black Witch. Rewards for this week include themed outfits, like the stunning Angelic Queen and Demonic Queen outfits. You can even score a skeletal outfit that turns your horse into a demonic mount!


Guild Wars 2

Longtime Guild Wars 2 players know they’ll have access to all sorts of goodies at the end of October. Their yearly tradition is the Return of the Mad King Thorn. On October 18th, you’ll notice some outposts are decked out in ghoulish Halloween flair, and that word is spreading about the arrival of the Mad King. Then, on October 31st (07:01 UTC), the Mad King will appear in the glowing circle. If you so choose to enter the ring, your battle with him will be a tough one. He is guarded by Necromancers made out of candy corn. Yuck! Only the most disciplined warriors will be able to to keep their lunch down as they fight these ugly beasts and make it to the boss finale. The battle ends with a simon-says type minigame where you must repeat the commands shouted to you. Every time you properly copy a command, you’ll win a Trick-or-Treat Bag, which can contain various sweets or even a Vial of Absinthe! Talk about a wallop of a package for just Halloween, eh?


Star Wars: The Old Republic

SWTOR fans will be treated to a scary event from October 17th through the 24th. Recommended for levels 25 and up, players are tasked with responding to an emergency alert from Alderann and combat the spreading waves of the Rakhghoul plague. The organization recruiting you, by the way, is T.H.O.R.N.

“Coincidence? Bwahahaahaha…. probably

The event will have a fair amount of exclusive gear you can earn. You can acquire a new Alliance Contact, two rare mounts, two armor sets, ferocious Rakghoul pets, and more!



It’s a great time to be a new Runescape player and the good folks over at Jagex have a wonderful assortment of events for players new and old. The main event, called the Dimension of the Damned, pits you and your group against waves upon waves of the undead. Luckily for you, you battle as the maxed out version of your account. Killing zombies will earn you points. On October 28th, the fighters with the most points will go through one last round of zombie-survival. The winner is promised “great riches and glory”. I am making an account right now. The Halloween update will also offer lots of great storytelling. New ghost-NPCs will send you on new missions; some that were scripted based on fan submissions, and some written by the dev team.
One thing for certain, there’s no way you can say you had nothing to do this frightful Hallow’s Eve 2017. Happy Halloween!

gamesread | MMO Update: Guild Wars 2, ESO And More

This week we put together a special exclusive primer detailing some of the big stories that took place in Q3 2017 in online gaming. It’s been a year of big franchises becoming free-to-play, and gamers being sold prizes in digital crates. The industry has made a heavy pivot yet again, and gaming is good.

Guild Wars 2 News

The sweet folks over at ArenaNet have come up with a way to make our MMO lives much simpler. With a new update that rolled out in September, players can now buy waypoints for cash. You can pay 2000 gems for ALL the waypoints in the five regions of the main game (will not include Heart Of Thorns or Path of Fire locations) and 600 gems for one region. For those wondering what the exchange rate is, 2000 gems works out to about $25 USD, and 600 gems runs you about $8. It’s a price that you will certainly feel in your pocketbook. Just make sure you really hate auto-walking before you confirm the transaction.

The expansion, Path of Fire, has been out since September 22nd and has been met with moderate acclaim. It feels rushed in some areas, like the story. But it makes up for that in other areas, like with the beautiful catalog of mounts that’ve been added, a revamped loot system, and new elite specialization options. Suffice it to say, the hardcore base is satisfied.

Destiny 2

If you’re the one person still taking on Oryx and his Taken Army in Destiny 1 on Xbox One, there is a special prize waiting for you.

A player recently discovered that he was able to access content that was originally only available for Playstation 3 and 4 users. Someone at Bungie must have thought it was time for their Xbox fanbase to collect their due. This update was not announced in any patch notes from the developers. Hopefully this doesn’t in in a lawsuit, because players gained access to a fair amount of fresh content.

The package includes:

One co-op Strike mission named “Echo Chamber”

“The Vex have laid siege to time itself. Attempting to unravel your once-decisive victory against Sekrion, the Vex are constructing a time bridge to call the Nexus Mind from the past in order to execute a terrible future.”

With up to 2 other players, you can attempt to hold off a Vex onslaught while also disabling the bridges machinery to prevent the return of Sekrion.

One new multiplayer map compatible with any mode named “SECTOR 618”

A map that, I can personally attest, will leave you with ptsd. With narrow corridors connected by only two exposed bridges. There are tons of sniping points, you will constantly be on your toes fighting in these yards.That is…if anyone is still there. *Sigh* Thankfully you have all this “exclusive” gear [that you’ve probably outleveled] to take into the fray.

Three new gear sets and one adorable-ass rifle

Each class gets a full armor set that they can complete, which gives a bonus specific to that class. They look pretty good, but if you’ve been playing Destiny 1 this whole time… you have WAY cooler stuff than this already. One thing you may not have though…

Is the Jade Rabbit. It’s a long range 13-shot rifle…with a bunny on it.

“The moon-dwelling Jade Rabbit of yore is made manifest in this adorably deadly exotic scout rifle. Sporting a 13-shot magazine and a sniper-like scope, the Jade Rabbit is a lethal combination of kinetic power and long-range accuracy.”

It may not be much, but it is a respectful gesture to the Xbox loyalists. As well all know the Xbox-loyal been through a lot the past couple of years.

Elders Scrolls Online

ESO tecently hit 10 million unique players! They are honoring the achievement with the campaign hashtag, #10millionstories, where you can email in your tales of combat and adventure and they will share them on social media as well as

A week ago, they showcased their new zone, Sotha Sil’s steampunk lair “filled with mysterious automatons, fantastic sights, and hidden dangers.”
