Get Many Coins In FIFA

Participate in tournaments

Tournaments are great places to earn a lot of money. When participating in these tournaments you should make every effort to win the games. When you win in a tournament, you make about 800 coins in every match.

Be wise in your buying and selling times

Many people play the game after work. This means that many people start playing at 3 pm or 5 pm. This means that there is high demand for the coins at this time. If you have time, it’s recommended that you play during the early morning hours.

When you play at this time you easily collect the coins which you can sell at a profit during the peak hours. By selling the coins later on you easily fetch a lot of money. For example, you can make 1,000 to 100,000 coins from your sales.

Select skilled players

When playing, you should use highly skilled players. Skilled players will not only help you in winning a game, but they will also be of high demand; therefore, you will sell them at a higher price which will result to you making a lot of money.

Resell packs and cards

A pack contains contracts, balls, players, kits and managers. If you have some money, you should buy a number of packs and later resell them at a profit. If you have cards of top rated players, you can sell them at huge profits and earn a lot of coins.

Make Gaming Experience Safe

Check the Links

If you are an online player and interact with many such players then you have to be sure that you are dealing with a genuine site. Check the URL if it is having a locked symbol in green color. This is a simple way that demarcates that all your data on the PC is safe. Do not use links that might be linked to several pages. Try to avoid links whose main page can be reached after visiting several pages.

No Personal Information, Please!

There are games that ask for personal information. It is normal to ask your gender and age but if the game goes way too far try avoiding it. Don’t use too much personal information because that can lead to duplication or misuse of identity. So, try to provide minimum information that is of least importance. Also, avoid sharing your location while you are playing online.

Use Antivirus Systems

New viruses are being invented almost every day. So, prevention is a must. The easiest and hassle free way to make your PC and any gaming safe is by using antivirus or internet security systems. This will prevent any unauthorised access to the infected or highly malicious sites. Even if some threats try to attack the system will automatically prevent it and make it safe. Having an antivirus will prevent duplication of data because of any breach of the security.

VR Games for Android Phone

Latest VR games would allow you to play the game on multiple devices with a single gamer name. You can play while commuting also by using your android phones. The latest versions of VR games are designed in such a way that they would render the same experience as a pc, laptop or a play station. Now as we know what is a VR game is all about let’s look at few latest VR games designed for android phones,

• Mekorama VR – A puzzle game where you have to guide a small robot through various levels. At the beginning it’s quite simple because there will be few stones to be moved but the difficulty increases from one level to the next. In this game you use the controller to move the stones and show the robot the way to move up.

• Hunters Gate: A game for action lovers – You will become a savior of the world when the world has been attacked by demons and you have to keep them back. This is a fun-filled and graphically impressive game. This is a famous rolling game whose elements make you stronger over time and will teach you new skills. For playing this game you must use daydream controllers, and these controllers help you in keeping track of what’s happening from above, which reduces your too much interaction with the virtual movement.

• Need for Speed: A VR game for admirers of speed, the game enhances the sensation of speed by Virtual Reality and is probably the best racing game for Daydream-capable smart phones. An exciting ride is guaranteed because of its impeccable graphics and breakneck-pace. Besides that the choice of customization and car tuning made this game more enchanting and exciting.

All about Good and Bad in Gaming

Backgrounds of gamers can play a part in the type of games that people play. There are all kinds of combinations for different categories relating to the type of games and type of gamers. You really need to look at the game’s website to get all the pertinent information prior to buying.

There are many online platforms where you can buy games from such as Steam or Humble Bundle. Those sites will give you the description, videos by the company, pictures, user and non-user tags, reviews, website, company and their social account(s). Be aware the game’s website might not show you everything you need to know. As a minimum, a gaming company will show a short sales pitch description, small amount of pictures (5 at best), one or two videos by them and their social accounts. The most they will provide is an informative description, their social accounts, user reviews and videos by them.

Let’s dive right into what is perceived as negative about gaming. The majority of the negative things about games come from the real-life people on those games, the type of games and the types of games for the wrong person. A game can be poorly made but it’s not always the case where the game itself is bad. It could be where it was the wrong type of game for the wrong person. This is where the categories come in. Maybe a game has a bit of violence. That doesn’t make it bad; it just makes it the wrong type of game for a seven year old. Or maybe you bought a puzzle game for a person who loves action type games. So the action loving person won’t enjoy it, but that doesn’t make the puzzle game bad!

The types of games are endless from nudity, drugs and alcohol, horror, gambling with money and more. These different types are wrong for youth gamers as well as wrong for people who don’t like seeing such things.

Gaming has good and bad sides just like everything else. The key is how good and bad are those sides. For example, some games have a bad side with players that like to fight a lot. This is common in games. Understand for a lot of gamers this is not a big deal; however, for youth who are new to the game or even gaming in general this can be frustrating. There are times when you want to avoid the bad sides all together. There are times when the good outweighs the bad. If this happens and there are no problems with the game itself; then the bad side is just that one little fly in your room which is no big deal. Caution: If the bad outweighs the good, I would strongly recommend avoiding that game.

Another aspect that people will nag a game developer or creator about is representation. Should I say, a lack of representation which is not limited to race, body type and message in the game. If you are able to customize your character, then of course you will not have a problem with representation. There is a problem in some games where they don’t represent strong and smart females, minority females and males, big, small, tall, and short females and males. Notice how I didn’t put “males” after female for strong? That’s because males in games are ALWAYS represented as strong and smart.

In games that show a male strong and smart, he will mostly likely be white, tall, thin, movie star looking and buff. You will rarely see him be a minority, short, chubby, not buff, nerdy looking, while still being strong and smart. You see this even LESS for females. Some females in games are also white, tall, thin and strong while showing skin like no tomorrow. You only see THESE females in MMORPG games (Massively Multiplayer online Role Playing Game) though. RPG games are meant for fantasy worlds where you mostly fight people and monsters. Of course the females’ stats will be strong but they won’t look strong.

In most games, when they add a character for you to play they always add a white male first, then a white female, then a black male, and then a black female. They don’t even really add people who are mixes of races or in between. When it comes to the black characters they only add one shade of “black” or “African American” and not every black person on earth is that shade.

In games, the majority of the characters are always thin and tall. You don’t really see characters that are short and thin, tall and chubby, short and chubby, etc. There are a lot of people who aren’t thin and who aren’t tall.

Then lastly, there is the mental message that goes with the gender, race, and body type. What do I mean by the mental message? Some games send an indirect message about that character being strong and smart or something else. While for other games it can be a mental message either on purpose or not. For example, in the game you play and you see a minority female who is short, chubby, nerdy looking and her traits are to be a goof ball, naive, and dumb. It could send a mental message to you that people that look like her are just like her. They’re not smart, they aren’t thin, and are not tall. They did poorly in school, etc. etc. So you start thinking those things based on not only seeing this in that game over and over again, but when it happens in other games too.

The worst part is NONE of these things are true. Yes, some people aren’t thin, tall, and maybe not that bright; but not EVERYONE is like this! You do have short chubby minorities who are smart as all get out! You have all kinds of combinations of people who ARE smart! Of course, all these things about gender, race, body type, and messages aren’t just in gaming; they’re in movies, TV shows, ads, etc. What’s interesting is that some of the creators who make the games, movies, TV shows, ads, etc., are minorities themselves and they make up the population of the earth. (Search “world population by race 2016” and click the first three links if you don’t believe me.)

Video Games Improve Your Child

• It helps in socializing. Kids make new friends and hang out with them. It is easier to make friends when the interests are same enabling to start a conversation. So, the shy ones who generally do not socialize would not remain aloof from others.

• Helps to have a healthy competition. Children like to compete and video games provide a safe opportunity for them to showcase their skills. Boys especially love to compete for recognition. It is a great place for children to compete especially those who aren’t excellent in sports.

• It helps in developing leadership qualities. Children who are involved in playing video games take a turn in leading and following others. It depends on who possesses the skill required in the game. This teaches the child to encourage and motivate each other to succeed.

• It brings parents and kids together. Parents who play video contests with their child are more close to their children. It allows the kids and the parents to share their skill and experiences. Kids are mostly known to teach their parents skills related to the game which is actually the reverse of the actual scenario. It thereby helps in having an easy conversation which can lead to the children sharing their problems with you which they might not if they weren’t close to their parents.

Information of Singleplayer Games

With singleplayer games, there is no need to worry about predators, stalkers, youth seeing nudity, hearing language, being bullied, harassment, verbal abuse, losing content, or having to interact with others. You can just enjoy playing your game without a care in the world. So you really don’t have to worry about much of anything since these games are just for one person.

Just because you may be the only one playing the game, that doesn’t mean there aren’t things to be cautious of. While most negative things about all types of gaming come from some of the actual real-life people on those games, some of the negative things are from the type of games and the types of games for the wrong person.

There are plenty of horror games, games with nudity, language, intense topics, intense scenes, smoking, drugs and alcohol, gambling with real life money, suggestive themes, blood and gore, games that have violence, etc., that are just for one person.

You really need to look at the game’s website, social accounts, videos, pictures, description, tags and especially the reviews. You need to gather all the information on the game you’re thinking about buying, whether for yourself or someone else.

If the game is on Steam, Humble Bundle, or some similar websites; they will show you the description, videos by that company, pictures, user and non-user tags, user reviews, website, company, and social accounts. However, if you’re on the game’s website, they might not show everything you need to know to decide whether to buy the game or not.

The least some game companies will show is a very short sales pitch description, a small amount of pictures (5 at best), a video or two by them, and their social accounts. The most they will show is an informative description, pictures by them and users, user reviews, videos by them and their social accounts. I’m not going to get into the good and bad in gaming and how to tell if the game is good or not in this article, that’s another article.

Now you’d think all games would have a singleplayer mode and then add other modes later. After all, it’s somewhat easier to have players play by themselves and create a new world or file than it is to pay so many dollars a month or year to host a server, have the troubles of getting and keeping the server up, and then having players actually connect to the server. At the beginning, you would think some games will add a Singleplayer mode before they add Co-Op or Multiplayer mode right? WRONG!

There are lots and lots of games that only have Multiplayer mode, Co-Op mode, and any other mode that is not Singleplayer. Some games are just meant for Multiplayer, like MMOs (Massively Multiplayer Online). It is possible to play multiplayer games with more than one person on one computer in the same room, but most people call that Local Multiplayer or Local Co-Op. This allows you to play with someone on the same computer in the same room.

Video Games Can Help Your Kids

Let us look at some of the advantages of computer game –

A smarter brain – Studies have proved time and again that after playing computer games the human brain becomes more active. Also, there is an increase in grey matter in areas associated with memory, strategic planning, and motor skills in kids who play a video game for an hour every day.

Attention to detail – These games help kids pay more attention to small things. This is because some computer games demand a gamer to pay attention to specifics.

Video games can be educational too – Video game is one of the best teaching tools. There are many computer games in the market which can be used as an effective educational tool for kids. It also helps kids who suffer from mental disorder read and comprehend faster and more effectively.

Improvement in eyesight – Not only can kids see tiny detail but they can also differentiate colours in a better way. It helps kids note variance in contrasts too.

Better use of technology – In today’s world, a lot of activities are technology driven. Activities like operations are being done using robotic arms and cameras. Controlling these robotic arms is very similar to computer games with a screen and a controller. When exposed to computer games, kids can get this done with fewer errors.

Having said this, all these skills are useful only when they are used in reality.

Unfortunately, the video games that are popular amongst kids are the ones that reward them for committing violence against others. Because of this, a kid may start assuming that this is how things work.

Survive In Elder Scrolls Online

Keep questing

For you to level fast you need to quest. Quests tend to dish out more points and you are able to survive in the game. This means that if you want to survive you need to take as many quests as you can. The good side is that there are many tutorials that will teach you on how to quest effectively and within a very short time.

Enchant your weapons and morph your abilities

Once you are experienced in a given skill, you can morph your skill so that you can become more powerful and useful. You should note that although morphing is very good and plays a huge role in making you better, it costs you a skill point that you could have used to gain a whole new spell or ability.

In addition to morphing your skills, you should also consider enchanting your weapons. Using glyphs is the best way of enchanting your weapons and armor. If you can’t get ready made glyphs, you should consider crafting your own glyphs. You can do this by gathering and combining runes.

Get ultimate ability as soon as possible

For you to be able to easily defeat your enemies you need to get ultimate abilities. To be on the safe side you should ensure that you gain the ultimate abilities very early in the game. You can earn the abilities by using unlocking spells and abilities that you meet in your journey.

Mobile Games On Human Life

We can look into the ways the mobile games are influencing human lives. The rough estimate of the age group that is more prone to play the video games is 10-25. They have a little knowledge of the realities of the world. That is the age when a person can have a lot of experience about how the things are in the world, by traveling around and by interacting with the other members of the society. The video games have affected their peer relationships. They spend most of their time playing on screens They hardly take part in solving social problems which affect their intercommunication abilities.

There is no shortage in the genres of mobile games, for example; fighting, shooting, sports, flight simulating, make up games and surgery games. Such games can be very informative and can provide knowledge beforehand to the kids. Take an example of a child who plays a driving game. Let us assume that the child does not have any real life experience of driving. Of course, playing a video game cannot give the feeling of the real life no matter how good the graphics are, but he will get to know many things about cars. Similarly, surgery games that give the bulk of information about human anatomy and make the player feel like a real doctor saving lives, provided that he does not squirm at the sight of blood.

Drawbacks of the video games are rather loud than their benefits. There is no disclaiming of all the ill effects of the video games. A child grown up playing these video games is hardly able to shake himself off the video game mode. For example, there is no obeying traffic rules in the games nor do the game developers look into it for the sake of making their game more fun. So when this child gets to drive a real car, he is playing that game in the back of his head which he used to play in his childhood and drives as recklessly as he used to drive in the game.

Some Advantages Playing Video Games

1. They are good for surgeons

Reading latest research is a must for surgeons. According to a study of laparoscopic, it was discovered that surgeons who have a habit of playing video games for over three hours in 7 days are more likely to perform better during the procedures they perform.

2. They Help You Overcome Dyslexia

According to some research studies, attention difficulties is one of the main causes of dyslexia. As a matter of fact, a study found that patients shown better reading comprehension once they have played a video game. Actually, what happens is that video games change the environment on a constant basis in order to make the player focus more.

3. They Improve Your eyesight

You may have heard that sitting too close to the TV is bad for you vision. However, today, scientists found that if you play games in moderation, your vision will get better. Therefore, it’s a good idea to spend a bit of time playing your favorite video games.

4. They boost your career

Some game genres make players develop better leadership traits. As a result, they provide better services for the society. According to researchers, players show a correlating motivation to choose a better career.

5. They Make You Physical

Some games improve your body interaction. Even if you play with a handheld controller, it will be considered a physical activity. As a matter of fact, sports games, such as tennis, basketball or skateboarding games may help your kids practice the required skills.

About Return of Space Simulation Games

Although it was a delight for me to experience all the latest games that are going to hit the market eventually, the one that truly turned my head and left me speechless was ‘No Man’s Sky’. This game literally beggars all description as no one has ever attempted to build or even conceive a game of such scale. This is basically a procedurally generated massive game, which may sound simple, but, as the saying goes, you got to see it to believe. The mesmerizing vistas and the bizarre environment teeming with unique flora and fauna on a seemingly alien planet are just the beginning of the story. This vast exploration game takes you on the journey to explore countless planets, and the best part is: you get to have your own space ship to fly off into space and back into different planets. How big is the size of the world you ask? Well, would it impress you if I were to tell you that every single player will be starting off on a different planet of his/her own? Can you now imagine the scale of this game? Besides the expansive universe, the vibrant visuals and dynamic environments are just sight of sore eyes.

What happens when you marry the genre of space simulation with first person shooter? You get a game called ‘Dreadnought’. This free-to-play action space simulation game is just what the E3 had been missing all along. We have all played fast paced action games where little thinking and more reflexes are required. We have also seen previous space simulation games where your little pea sized craft sometimes gets into a pathetic situation with a gigantic mother-ship of some kind, and you die wishing that only if you had one of those humongous ships at your command. To fill this void in your little world of gaming, ‘Dreadnought’ fills right in. This free-to-play massively online game puts you in a team battle where you fight off against the enemy ships using skills and tactics (not reflexes). Ever played ‘World of Tanks’? If so, then you will know exactly what I am talking about.

These are just a few titles of space simulation games that are going to leave a good long lasting mark on this genre; however, a game that will not only revitalize the genre to the backbone, but also revolutionize the gaming industry itself is ‘Star Citizen’. Star Citizen is the largest crowd funded Kickstarter project to date. With Chris Roberts, the chief developer of ever green titles such as Freelancer and Starlancer, at the helms, Star Citizen is on its way to becoming one of the largest PC exclusive game in the industry. The reason why this game is PC exclusive is quite simple: the consoles just cannot handle the demand of the graphics that are being run on this game. Using modified Cry Engine 3, this game is set in an open universe with tons of exploration to be done, battles to be fought and places to be conquered.

Mobilising Games to Go Global

A stationary stone gathers moss

The driving force behind any business is profit. The gaming world is no different. This is a highly competitive world and the gaming market is killer. To survive, evolve, and bring home the bacon, apps and games need not just to be entertaining to the boy-next-door: they need to capture new platforms and markets. And they need to be fast and furious about it or fall by the wayside.

How can they do this?

Internationalistion and localisation
This two-step process is what enables a game to adapt to different regional and linguistic cultures. It must include:
Reviewing the language and regional settings which will determine which localisation is used as well as the date, time, and number formats.
Adapting the user interface
The code must handle multi-language text
Locale (not the language) settings must drive data formatting as multiple countries might use the same language, as also the same individual travelling across different countries.
User interface must be ‘mirrored’ while using right to left languages; the only exception here would probably be phone numbers.
It is also necessary to test the internationalized app or game to detect auto-layout problems and strings that are not part of the internationalization-localisation process.

Enjoyment MUST be stress-free
Gaming is for enjoyment; the gamer cannot be subjected to a confusing, frustrating experience. There is no place, either, for being culturally and politically improper or downright offensive. Game localisation must also ensure that the translated, internationalized, localized version be faithful to the original.

Many gamers take their gaming very seriously. Game localisation, including those on mobile platforms (iOS localisation or Android), should enable players to immerse themselves completely. The whole enjoyment in gaming is to transport the player to a world of fantasy more appealing than reality, where lives can be replenished in battles with strange creatures in exotic lands unknown! Nothing should interrupt this ‘willing suspension of disbelief.’

Localisation must be from the word GO
Game localisation cannot be an afterthought and game developers would benefit from shedding the ‘let’s see’ attitude. Successful developers have understood that video game localisation is an integral part of the development cycle along with coding, designing, or writing. In the very early stages when games were designed and played on limited and limiting platforms, this ‘afterthought status’ might have been acceptable. But with the proliferation of mobile technology, and the increasing demand for games across linguistic, cultural and geographical borders, video game localisation has come into its own.

Localisation- NOT translation
It must be amply clear by now that game internationalisation and localisation is not just about language. It encompasses cultural symbols, costumes, ethos, environment… everything that goes up to make civilisations, in fact!

There are many pitfalls to be avoided:

Concerns of piracy and the importance of timely capturing of markets may drive translations on incomplete games. Context must be clear while translating text whatever the stage of game development. The complete picture should be kept in mind.

Localisation must be a consideration early in game development as cultural concepts must be clear from Day 1. For example: scantily clad female characters may be an issue in some countries. If this is not considered early in the design cycle, it could turn into a costly, untreatable headache when the game has to move to more socially conservative markets.

Games must evolve with current events. Consider the example of how a spate of pedophilia cases in Belgium discouraged the use of the word ‘pedometer’ in a game on weight-loss because of the negative connotation such a prefix had.

Separate text files make the game moddable and the translated versions can be pasted on the localized version.

A text-freeze or cut-off date for text changes is a very good idea to control translation costs and keep game development on schedule.

Be aware of cultural issues, taboos and sensitivities from the very beginning.

Accents are important for voice overs. A cowboy with a Texan twang is ludicrous in a video game meant for the Chinese market.

Who does the localisation?
Game developers pour millions into game development. So, it makes no sense to cut corners when it comes to video game localisation to make inroads into new markets.

Cheap translations aimed at cost control may result in a complete flop show and make the developer an international laughing stock.

Whether it is artwork, translation, marketing, packaging, or bridging the cultural gap, it is very skilled work which is the domain of trained and talented professionals.

Wits and Wagers Original Edition

In order to win in inferior Trivial Pursuit, you not only must get a question in each category correct, but your pawn must be on the one correct space on the board that earns you a tiny plastic pie piece. Games end in a near stalemate in which players try to hop back and forth on spaces near their worst category until finally the planets align and they get an easy question while in the right place. Wits and Wagers, on the other hand, is a trivia game where you don’t have to know trivia to win.

It can help, yes, but the questions are deliberately designed so that no one at the table likely knows the exact answer. Questions are often based around statistics: How many cups of coffee does the average American drink in a year? How much did a three-day Woodstock ticket cost at the gate on the first day? What was the lowest temperature every recorded in Hawaii in degrees Fahrenheit? How many Americans were injured in bathtubs or showers in 2001?

For some questions, your knowledge may help you. You may be able to guess when the first American newspaper was established if you know old a paper like the New York Times is. On other questions, no one could every be expected to know. This aspect may frustrate some, but for me, it is what makes the game fun for the whole group rather than just a few people. Even a quiz master like Ken Jennings might not win a game of Wits and Wagers. Players do score extra points if their answer was closest, but a player could go the whole game without getting a question right and still win due to how scoring works.

Let’s do a sample question together so that you can see the mechanics. We’ll use the following question as an example: Over the 5-year period from 1999 to 2003, what percent of the U.S. recording industry’s dollar sales were to consumers under 30 years old?

Let’s say people guessed as follows:

Tom: 22%

Laura and Adama: 50%

Boomer 72%

Saul 77.14%

Mike: 80%

Kat 92%

Feel free to guess along; I’ll put the answer at the end of the post. Players write their name and their guess on a mini white board and simultaneously reveal them. Answers are put on the board in order. Then players may bet (with chips, not real money of course) on which answer they think is closest without going over (sort of making this like a board game that is like The Price is Right). Players have a lot to consider when betting.

+Cards that are farther away from the center pay out more; This is easy to see in an image, but if if Kat’s answer is right, it pays out 4 to 1.

+Boomer might not be worth betting even if you think she has a good chance of being right: a bet on Boomer’s answer is betting that the answer will be in the narrow range between 72% and 77.14%.

Pick Good Minecraft Servers

Type of Gameplay

You should go for the best gameplay type. Moreover, the tags or the descriptions of the server will let you know what the server is about. Maybe you are familiar with the majority of tags or descriptions, especially if you have played your favorite games on some of the most popular servers.

The population

The majority of lists show the number of players that are logged into a specific server. How can you choose one? If you are in search of a server to play small games, we suggest that you check out a server that has a minimum of 100 people signed in. Aside from this, if you have been in search of an intimate community, we suggest that you prefer a server with around 50 people logged in.

Grief protection

The majority of players prefer this feature. The reason is that grief protection makes it harder for other players to take down your items and buildings. Typically, survival servers have this thing mentioned in the description. But you won’t find this information on every online server.

Technical information

You may also want to check out technical information as well. At times, you may get this information from the server description. Alternatively, you may look at the tags used by server lists in order for organizing the servers. But if you can’t find the information at any of these places, you may want to go to the website of the server.

Server website

You should browse the server site as well. Once you are on the site, you should examine it to find out if the web pages or forum posts are great to look at. Can you find the information related to the community, staff, features and server rules? Actually, good servers give importance to their site, making it informative and user friendly.

Explore the server

Lastly, you may want to explore the server. As a matter of fact, trying the server out is important if you want to know more. Actually, good servers always have moderators and administrators online to help people answer their questions. They are there to tell you the server rules and features.

Multiple Games

That is not Nintendo’s only celebrating mascot, much like Disney, Nintendo thrives on their variety of characters. They have Link a sword wielding hero from “The Legend of Zelda” series, Star Fox a brave space pilot from the “Star Fox” series, Samus an alien fighter from the Metroid Prime series, Donkey Kong a giant ape from the Donkey Kong series, and many more. It is insane how many characters that Nintendo does own and to this day they are still creating more. All of these characters have been in multiple games and multiple mash-ups that show them competing with one another. These mash-up happened years before the Avengers hit movie theaters, showing that Nintendo is ahead of their game in more ways than one. They have been releasing new consoles at around a 5 year span going from the Nintendo Entertainment System, to the Super Nintendo, to Nintendo 64, to Gamecube, to Wii, now finally to the Wii U. Each experience has been different and fresh letting the players play the games in a brand new way.

The games were fantastic and the consoles were improvements over one another. It is fun to describe the consoles and talk about the games, but the only way to actually understand all of this is to play a Nintendo console. Years after the release of the first Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo is still hitting homeruns to this day. They are fun to play, families will get together around a television set just to play some of their favorite mascots. This is something that cannot be said about the competitors. If Nintendo keeps this innovations going they will be creating games for the next century and onward when we are finally introduced to fully interactive 3D worlds. Do not be surprised if Nintendo is behind this innovative technology.

Virtual Pets a Game Changer

Different Options and Opportunities

Today, entertainment and learning options for kids are very different and significantly wider. There’s a whole market dedicated to children apps so they can play great games and broaden their knowledge without even realizing it. Apps can even help take care of their health. The last group is probably the most important one – busy parents can stop worrying because their kids’ smartphone app can remind them when to take their medication.

Are the “Modern Kids” Missing Out?

Pets usually are one of the greatest childhood memories. Having a living being that grows up alongside you and loves you no matter what is an irreplaceable experience. But that’s not just a one-way street – pets teach you what it’s like to care for someone and worry about other people’s needs.

Virtual pet games really changed this. Your kid can simply download one or several different pet games and play with them on the screen. This new experience can be confusing and many parents are in two minds when it comes to virtual pets. Despite many studies and research, the question of the quality of life the “new age” kids have still remains unanswered and we often wonder whether the little ones are missing out nowadays.

Actually, It’s the Other Way Around

Yet, it appears that not all the games are bad for the kids, or at least not in their entirety. Has anyone ever told you how much he or she wanted a pet but the parents couldn’t afford one or the living arrangements didn’t allow for it? Thanks to smartphone apps, every child can have a pet. We’re not talking just about cats and dogs now, but fictional pets like dragons and even protected species like pandas, as well.

If you give them a try, you’ll realize that some of these virtual pets tend to be more serious than what you might have expected. When it comes to most of them, you do need to take care of a virtual pet like you would of a real one in order for it to be happy. So, feeding it, taking it to the bathroom, and playing with it are a necessity for a virtual pet to be happy.

Next Generation Console

The PlayStation 4 is the most technically advanced of all three consoles. It is able to play in 1080p, 1080i but is not set up for the rarely used upcoming 4k resolution. The Xbox One on the other hand can’t always do 1080p but is set up for the 4k resolution. The 4k resolution is an resolution that hasn’t quite been used in TVs (due to the expense) but are used in movie theaters. As of now though the PlayStation 4 has the best graphics of all three systems (if only by a small margin). PlayStation 4 and Xbox One both have about the same amount of exclusive games as well. Nintendo overall due to its long running history has the longest list of exclusive games to its console.

The Xbox One was designed for an overall entertainment console and entertainment hub. It also has many services, such as Twitch and upload studio so that gamers can upload their gaming clips and sessions to the internet much easier. Both the Wii U and PlayStation 4 both have a lot of these applications as of now as well. All three have a number of entertainment and social media applications such as Facebook, Netflix and Hulu as well.

The Xbox One has the best motion controls of all three systems, with no peripherals needed like the other consoles. It has also been greatly improved upon over the last Kinect motion control system, with a much better video capture and voice capture system. With the new Wii U gamepad and Wiimotes the Wii U does have a unique motion control system but not quite as advanced as the Xbox One. The PlayStation 4 does have motion control and voice control similar to the Xbox One and are also developing a Virtual Reality prototype called “Project Morpheus”.

Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition

Start Small. Many Dungeon Masters want to create their own worlds and narratives, but crafting elaborate adventures and campaigns is an immense task early on and a rudimentary understanding of the rules can hinder the momentum necessary to drive a complex story and result in a disheartening first experience.

Whether running the introductory adventure The Lost Mine of Phandelver – found in the 5th Edition Starter Set – or an adventure you’ve made yourself, it’s important to start small and allow yourself plenty of room to make mistakes.

Read the rules found in the Player’s Handbook, pick an environment, choose a setting, read up on one or two types of monsters, and send your adventurers on a short quest that requires them to traverse this environment in order to interact with these monsters in this setting. Give them some gold and one or two pieces of equipment if they successfully complete the quest.

Leave Room for Improvisation. It’s impossible to prepare for everything that your players are going to think up. Time spent fleshing out intricate backgrounds for the good people of Daggerford is wasted when your adventurers decide that they don’t want to go to Daggerford, but instead would rather sleep in the woods on the outskirts of town. In order to save yourself from wasting hours, or even days, of preparation, you should avoid going into too much detail when creating non-player characters, locations, monsters, etc.

Give every non-player character you make a name and one or two defining features (such as a big scar on their right eye or six fingers on their left hand) so that players can easily identify them, but let the finer details come out while you’re actually playing the game. Once a character, location, monster, etc. has shown up in your game, keep an index card with their name and key features – as well as what happened to them in the game – on hand for later sessions.

Stop. Collaborate and Listen. Often times new Dungeon Masters confuse their role as a litigator with that of a tyrant, but Dungeons & Dragons is a collaborative storytelling experience, with both the DM and the players contributing to what’s happening in the narrative. Being responsible for creating the entirety of the world that your players inhabit is intimidating, but remember that you are all gathered together to play a game and have fun – yes, even the Dungeon Master.

Get into the habit of asking your players questions about their characters, such as “Having been here before, what’s your impression of Baldur’s Gate?” and “Have you fought bugbears before? If so, how did that go for you?” This gets players in the mindset of thinking about the world from their character’s perspective and allows them to contribute to the world-building, taking some of the load off of you.

If you’re really comfortable with your group, you can even field them questions like “What’s a good name for a nervous shop owner?” and work together at the table to come up with a non-player character’s foundation. The more you include your players in your world, the more invested they will become.

Real-Life Pokemon

Created by Satoshi Tajiri and Ken Sugimori, Pokemon (originally called “Pocket Monsters”) were adapted from real-life animals in the early 1990s. In the original video game, the player must capture Pokemon using specially design Poke Balls, and use them to fight fictitious competitors, collection various specialty badges with every defeat. Pokemon taps into our human instincts of companionship, competition, and journey. As a result, Pokemon became one of the largest pop culture trends throughout the work in the 90s.

Millennials grew up playing Pokemon video games, watching its cartoons, and playing its card games. As technology advanced, Nintendo, which publishes Pokemon, updated versions of the video games to play on advanced hardware. As smart technologies progressed, Niantic, a San Francisco Software company specializing in augmented reality, worked to create one of the most successful smartphone applications in history: Pokemon Go. Tapping into the public’s nostalgia of this cultural phenomenon, combined with new technologies, Pokemon Go allows users to catch their own Pokemon in their community through their smart phone.
Although Pokemon Go integrates novel technology to create a fundamentally unique experience for users, it has more than just software to thank for its success. At the core of its appeal to consumers is its connection to human psychology. Humans have always had an affinity for animals because they have shared our spaces since the development of our species. Because of this, our ancestors told stories and created mythologies around animals and the symbols they represent.

If we skim through history, we will discover countless interactions between humans and animals, and stories based off of them which relayed important cultural messages. For example, lions represent authority, power, and dominance; lambs and snakes are often symbolized in religious texts, and eagles are seen as heralds of freedom.
One culture that was particularly influenced by animals was ancient Greece, which based a large portion of their religion on mythological creatures. One of the most famous storytellers of Ancient Greece, named Aesop, was famous for incorporating animals in his anecdotes which were used to convey important moral tales. These were used by politicians, religious leaders, and teachers to explain to audiences life-lessons in easy to understand ways.
