Play Mass Effect 3 – Ultimate Gaming

When it comes to video games, there is a lot of competition in the action and RPG section. However, there are some that transcend mere description, including Mass Effect 3. The game mixes genre and has been developed by BioWare and was pushed on all major consoles in the home market. Originally announced in late 2010, the game came out in early 2012, and has been stated to be the end of the trilogy. The game is fast moving, and has a great deal of elements from a variety of different game styles to create a great actioner that features exactly what gamers want in a single player and multiplayer endeavor. To date, it has sold well and has even been nominated for several awards. slotxo

Those that have played the previous games were especially happy with this new development because the choices that they made in the earlier games could carry over into this third game, allowing the game to have over one thousand variable story points that can create a new style of gameplay for each gamer. Of course the game shifts to favor the changes, but if a player wants to start fresh, they can move forward with a new game and level up.

There are several different styles of gameplay, but most often gamers go into the story mode to continue the story that has been created in the first 2 games. The game maintains a third person perspective in combat, and has been deliberately kept that way to allow for a wider commercial balance for new gamers. The computer intelligence has also been revamped to make the game far more difficult to play than most other games. It has been written that this game is the most difficult of the 3 in the trilogy.

The game has sold nearly 2 million copies to date, and is continually receiving praise for its mix of action gameplay, RPG elements, and much more. The storyline has been praised and the cinema style cut scenes creates a movie feeling. With more than an hour of full motion graphics and cut scenes, this game is truly one of the better-developed games in terms of story.

Initially, the endings of the game were not received well, but after some changes were made, the online criticisms died down. A release of an Extended Cut was announced and the company changed many of the things that gamers were most vocal about.

Virtual Currency Games

Every little boy’s (and many grown men’s) dream of making a living by playing video games is edging closer to reality. The recent release of HunterCoin and the in-development VoidSpace, games which reward players in digital currency rather than virtual princesses or gold stars point towards a future where one’s ranking on a scoreboard could be rewarded in dollars, and sterling, euros and yen.

The story of the millionaire (virtual) real estate agent…

Digital currencies have been slowly gaining in maturity both in terms of their functionality and the financial infrastructure that enables them to be used as a credible alternative to non-virtual fiat currency. Though Bitcoin, the 1st and most well known of the crypto-currencies was created in 2009 there have been forms of virtual currencies used in video games for more than 15 years. 1997’s Ultima Online was the first notable attempt to incorporate a large scale virtual economy in a game. Players could collect gold coins by undertaking quests, battling monsters and finding treasure and spend these on armour, weapons or real estate. This was an early incarnation of a virtual currency in that it existed purely within the game though it did mirror real world economics to the extent that the Ultima currency experienced inflation as a result of the game mechanics which ensured that there was a never ending supply of monsters to kill and thus gold coins to collect.

Released in 1999, EverQuest took virtual currency gaming a step further, allowing players to trade virtual goods amongst themselves in-game and though it was prohibited by the game’s designer to also sell virtual items to each other on eBay. In a real world phenomenon which was entertainingly explored in Neal Stephenson’s 2011 novel Reamde, Chinese gamers or ‘gold farmers’ were employed to play EverQuest and other such games full-time with the aim of gaining experience points so as to level-up their characters thereby making them more powerful and sought after. These characters would then be sold on eBay to Western gamers who were unwilling or unable to put in the hours to level-up their own characters. Based on the calculated exchange rate of EverQuest’s currency as a result of the real world trading that took place Edward Castronova, Professor of Telecommunications at Indiana University and an expert in virtual currencies estimated that in 2002 EverQuest was the 77th richest country in the world, somewhere between Russia and Bulgaria and its GDP per capita was greater than the People’s Republic of China and India. slotxo

Launched in 2003 and having reached 1 million regular users by 2014, Second Life is perhaps the most complete example of a virtual economy to date whereby it’s virtual currency, the Linden Dollar which can be used to buy or sell in-game goods and services can be exchanged for real world currencies via market-based exchanges. There were a recorded $3.2 billion in-game transactions of virtual goods in the 10 years between 2002-13, Second Life having become a marketplace where players and businesses alike were able to design, promote and sell content that they created. Real estate was a particularly lucrative commodity to trade, in 2006 Ailin Graef became the 1st Second Life millionaire when she turned an initial investment of $9.95 into over $1 million over 2.5 years through buying, selling and trading virtual real estate to other players. Examples such as Ailin are the exception to the rule however, only a recorded 233 users making more than $5000 in 2009 from Second Life activities.

How to be paid in dollars for mining asteroids…

To date, the ability to generate non-virtual cash in video games has been of secondary design, the player having to go through non-authorised channels to exchange their virtual booty or they having to possess a degree of real world creative skill or business acumen which could be traded for cash. This could be set to change with the advent of video games being built from the ground up around the ‘plumbing’ of recognised digital currency platforms. The approach that HunterCoin has taken is to ‘gamify’ what is typically the rather technical and automated process of creating digital currency. Unlike real world currencies that come into existence when they are printed by a Central bank, digital currencies are created by being ‘mined’ by users. The underlying source code of a particular digital currency that allows it to function is called the blockchain, an online decentralised public ledger which records all transactions and currency exchanges between individuals. Since digital currency is nothing more than intangible data it is more prone to fraud than physical currency in that it is possible to duplicate a unit of currency thereby causing inflation or altering the value of a transaction after it has been made for personal gain. To ensure this does not happen the blockchain is ‘policed’ by volunteers or ‘miners’ who test the validity of each transaction that is made whereby with the aid of specialist hardware and software they ensure that data has not been tampered with. This is an automatic process for miner’s software albeit an extremely time consuming one which involves a lot of processing power from their computer. To reward a miner for verifying a transaction the blockchain releases a new unit of digital currency and rewards them with it as an incentive to keep maintaining the network, thus is digital currency created. Because it can take anything from several days to years for an individual to successfully mine a coin groups of users combine their resources into a mining ‘pool’, using the joint processing power of their computers to mine coins more quickly.

HunterCoin the game sits within such a blockchain for a digital currency also called HunterCoin. The act of playing the game replaces the automated process of mining digital currency and for the first time makes it a manual one and without the need for expensive hardware. Using strategy, time and teamwork, players venture out onto a map in search of coins and on finding some and returning safely to their base (other teams are out there trying to stop them and steal their coins) they can cash out their coins by depositing them into their own digital wallet, typically an app designed to make and receive digital payments. 10% of the value of any coins deposited by players go to the miners maintaining HunterCoin’s blockchain plus a small percent of any coins lost when a player is killed and their coins dropped. While the game graphics are basic and significant rewards take time to accumulate HunterCoin is an experiment that might be seen as the first video game with monetary reward built in as a primary function.

Though still in development VoidSpace is a more polished approach towards gaming in a functioning economy. A Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game (MMORPG), VoidSpace is set in space where players explore an ever-growing universe, mining natural resources such as asteroids and trading them for goods with other players with the goal of building their own galactic empire. Players will be rewarded for mining in DogeCoin, a more established form of digital currency which is currently used widely for micro-payments on various social media sites. DogeCoin will also be currency of in-game trade between players and the means to make in-game purchases. Like HunterCoin, DogeCoin is a legitimate and fully functioning digital currency and like HunterCoin it can be traded for both digital and real fiat currencies on exchanges like Poloniex.

The future of video games?

Though it is early days in terms of quality the release of HunterCoin and VoidSpace is an interesting indication of what could be the next evolution for games. MMORPG’s are currently being considered as ways to model the outbreak of epidemics as a result of how player’s reactions to an unintended plague mirrored recorded hard-to-model aspects of human behaviour to real world outbreaks. It could be surmised that eventually in-game virtual economies could be used as models to test economic theories and develop responses to massive failures based on observations of how players use digital currency with real value. It is also a good test for the functionality and potential applications of digital currencies which have the promise of moving beyond mere vehicles of exchange and into exciting areas of personal digitial ownership for example. In the mean time, players now have the means to translate hours in front of a screen into digital currency and then dollars, sterling, euros or yen.

1980 Arcade Games – Video Domination

1980 arcade games proved that the gaming market would become huge worldwide in the years to come with no signs of stopping. This, of course, was extremely evident in the release of the highest grossing game of all time. This was also heralded the first mascot character. Pac-Man was an international phenomena that also ushered in the maze chase genre, introduced power-ups, featured cut-scenes, and opened gaming to female audiences. Pre-1980 arcade games showed off their tech prowess and imagination through games such as Pong and Space Invaders. However, 1980 games showed the world how much money was to be made in this arena. slotxo

The Rise of Technology

To see how far we have gone in the realm of video-gaming, all one must do is to look back to the 1980’s to see how far we have come. 1980 arcade games pave the way for standardized gaming for decades to come. Namco released another contestant in the arena of 1980 arcade games. Rally-X became the first game to introduce a bonus round an feature multi-directional scrolling. Universal releases Space Panic which many cite as being the first platform game. Nintendo releases Radar Scope which features a mock 3D third person perspective. Atari releases Battlezone which was later used for US military training (with a few upgrades, of course. These are only a few of the gaming advances that were introduced into 1980 video games.

Pac-Man is King

Even after all of the above mentioned gaming advances in other 1980 arcade games, Pac-Man remains the best in its category. It took traditional gaming to that point and not only introduced many never seen before features, but it crossed retail lines by having the first mascot character from gaming in history. There were Pac Man lunchboxes, Pac Man plush toys, Pac Man notebooks, Pac Man posters, Pac Man TV Shows. Namco took its place as the grandfather of arcade gaming. They showed us not only how to constantly innovate and make anew, but also how to cross sell your innovation through several retail markets. It was because of 1980 arcade games that we see the video game market as we do today.

The World Series Is Baseball’s Only Post Season Games

When Baseball started the World Series (WS) in 1903, (prior to that year the games were considered exhibitions) the NFL (1920) and NBA (1946) didn’t even exist. Since their inception, all of these Professional Leagues kept separate statistics for their regular season, inter-league playoff games and Championships. That is, until the granddaddy of them all, decided to lump Playoff stats and WS stats together and call them Postseason stats. Like adding a WS home field advantage to the All-Star Game, baseball has chosen to upgrade Playoff games to the equal of the WS in order to increase their value to TV broadcast networks, to the detriment of the sport.

By MLB actions, many of those members of the Hall of Fame (HOF) that did not have the opportunity to participate in Playoff games will eventually have their WS records relegated to the ash heap of history. During the Playoffs, and WS, TV broadcasters are evidently instructed to refer to all individual stats as Postseason. slotxo

For example, during the 2011 Playoffs, TV announcers told us that Jorge Posada of the Yankees had eclipsed a Postseason Yankee team record for Runs Batted In (RBI) previously held by HOF Mickey Mantle. The rub is that Mantle only has WS stats, because Playoff games didn’t exist when he played. This is not in any way to denigrate Posada, who had an excellent career, but the bulk of his stats came from American League Division Series (ALDS) and American League Championship Series (ALCS). “So,” you might ask, “what’s the big deal?” The big deal is that all those Playoff games were played against other AL teams that they play all year, every year, in cities and ballparks that were familiar. All WS games are played against teams from the other league at unfamiliar cities and ballparks, that except for, maybe, a few inter-league games each, they never see during the regular season. Since there were no inter-league games when Mantle played, he was always facing a National League (NL) team in the World Series that the Yankees never played during the regular season and that had earned their League’s Championship based on their regular season record, not winning Playoff games. Let me say that again – the teams with the best regular season record played each other in the World Series. It was the best against the best.

The result is that the way the Playoffs are presently constituted two teams could now conceivably play 13 games and three teams 12 games prior to playing seven WS games.

Mantle played in 65 WS games (40 RBI) and Posada in 29 (11 RBI) against the NL. However, Posada also played in 96 Playoff games (31 RBI) against AL teams, a total of 125 games; almost twice as many. It’s the basic apples to oranges comparison which skews all lifetime stats in his favor, both in number and familiarity with opponents. Please, Posada was not Mantle.

During the TV broadcast of a 2013 NLCS game the Postseason, On Base Percentage plus Slugging Percentage (OPS) of the St. Louis Cardinal’s, Carlos Beltran, was compared to the Postseason OPS of the Yankee’s HOF, Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, evidently to hype the importance of Playoff Games. This comparison is way beyond the pale. Beltran, a very good player, had the excellent OPS in Playoff Games at that point, (1.160) but he had never participated in a WS game when the comparison was made. Ruth and Gehrig, two of the best hitters in Baseball history, only appeared in WS games.

In the 2014 American League Divisional Series (NLDS), during the second game between the Tigers and Orioles the broadcasters were comparing the Postseason Slugging Percentage (SLG) of the Oriole’s, Nelson Cruz and Beltran against Ruth and Gehrig. For the record these are the SLG and OPS WS stats for all four players: Ruth 10 WS, 41 Games (G) -.744/1.211; Gehrig 7 WS, 34 G -.731/1.208; Cruz 2 WS, 12 G -.444/.724; Beltran 1 WS, 6 G -.294/.694. Compare those!

Board Games For Younger Children

Playing board games with younger children presents a fun learning opportunity. These precious years are when kids learn so much. Playing kids board games can reinforce learning letters, numbers, and colors. Playing board games can also help develop memory and cognitive skills. A lot of board game makers have not only taken into account a fun factor with their games but the learning potential.

When choosing games for preschoolers, look for age appropriate board games. This most likely will be listed on the front of the board game box. Choose games that either have a theme or relate to something that is of interest to your child. If your child really likes animals, then an animal-themed game might hold their attention for longer. There are also many classic board games like Memory and Candyland that feature popular characters, too. สมัครสล็อต

Playing pieces should be fairly large and shouldn’t present a choking hazard. Avoid games where tokens are used or games that contain small game pieces. All wooden games are sturdy and will be harder for children to break.

Before buying a board game for young children, check to see how long the playing time is for the game. Games that are relatively short are more likely to be finished before interest is lost. Board games that can be finished in under 15 minutes should be considered.

Look for board games that are not only age appropriate but that have simple rules. Games that have only one winning condition are best, too. Some games might have more than one way to win the game. It can be confusing to be able to win a game more than one way. This information may not be clearly noted on the board game box, so use house rules to set only one winning condition.

House rules can always be implemented into any game. Changing the rules for family play can speed up games, which hopefully will keep younger players engaged.

Award-winning games have been put through some test for fun and game play. There are plenty of awards given out to board games during the year, but just because a game receives an award doesn’t mean it’s necessary a game your kids would enjoy. Some awards are given to those board games submitted for review, so it might not be a complete inclusion to every game put out that year. Still, award-winning games can give some ideas of games to consider for your children.

Table-Top Pandemic – An Interview With the Creator of the “Pandemic” Board Game

Finally take action against a Pandemic by playing this award-winning game. I had a chance to ask the game designer/creator some questions this month.

1. How would you summarize the Pandemic game for someone who hasn’t played it before?

In Pandemic, players work together as a team to contain four deadly diseases that have broken out across the globe. Players travel around the world, trying to keep the spread of infection in check long enough to discover the four cures needed to win the game. Players each have a special role (including Medic, Researcher, Scientist, Operations Expert, and Dispatcher) granting special abilities to contribute to the team. If the players cooperate, play to their strengths, and manage their time well, they can hope to rescue humanity. If not, the world will be overrun by disease and the players will all lose the game. สมัครสล็อต

2. What triggered the idea to come up with the Pandemic game?

I was interested to see if I could design a cooperative game where the players would have to fight against the game instead of each other. Diseases seemed like an ideal candidate for a frightening and seemingly sentient opponent for the players to battle. I came up with the seeds of the idea while out on a walk with my daughter. When I returned home, I cobbled together a rough prototype with a few sharpies and a standard deck of cards. In the earliest versions, players could use cards to travel around the world or could collect and meld cards to discover cures. Through experimentation, I discovered the rules for creating hotspots on the map and was hooked: I knew I had the seeds of a good game.

3. Did you study any real Pandemic plans to get any ideas?

I didn’t. In previous games I’ve done research to inform the game play and thematic elements. For Pandemic, I primarily concentrated on what was fun and what felt right. I then played it with hundreds of players who helped contribute ideas which helped me shape the game to fit common mental models of how diseases and players in a game like this should operate. This was more important to me than having a technically correct simulation that didn’t inspire play.

My primary goals were to create a game that was easy to learn, approachable by non-gamers, that fostered cooperation and discussion amongst the players-something lacking from a lot of games today. I did try to include educational aspects where I could: the cities in the game all come with population statistics and the flags of their countries, for example. I was delighted to hear afterwards that friends of friends at the CDC loved the game and that they started to offer it in the CDC gift shop. Although clearly it’s not a cut-and-dry simulation, it works well enough for these folks.

4. What was your reasoning behind making it a co-operative game?

Since I’m an independent game designer, I can design the games that I find the most interesting and select the target audiences myself. In this case, my muse was my wife Donna. I set out to design a game that I could play with her and our friends where I wouldn’t feel the need to apologize when explaining it (due to its complexity) and one in which we’d all feel good about after playing, win-or-lose. Cooperative games are great in that regard: if the team wins, there’s high-fives all around but if the team loses, they can always play again. No egos are on the line and if a player is having trouble with the rules or with a strategy, the others can help him or her out since it’s part of the game.

The feedback on the game in this regard has been overwhelmingly positive. Many people have reported having really positive bonding experiences playing with their spouse, family, and friends.

5. Do you find that sales or general game awareness is increasing because of the H1N1 virus outbreak?

Yes, I saw a definite bump in discussions about the game online after all the press over H1N1 and I have to imagine that sales increased as a result.

Full Time Job’s Salary by Just Playing Video Games All Day As Game Tester

This article is mainly meant for those who have a passion for video games. If you like playing video games, but think it is just wastage of time, well, I must say that you are totally wrong. There are companies which pay you huge money for playing video games and by that I don’t mean any ordinary video games. You will be playing video games which are yet to rock the gaming world. Be the first person to play it and also earn simultaneously. The professional name for these people is game tester as they are the one who tests a game for its user compatibility, so that it gets popular with masses quite easily.

The work which you have to do as a game tester is to analyze video games software defects. This is very important for any company because it is a part of quality control process in video game development. A single video game takes one to a maximum of three years to develop. Nowadays the leading gaming companies make billions of dollars from every game they launch. Lack of popularity of any game means lesser sale of it leading to huge loss of the company. So to make sure that the game produced does not have any bugs, testers are required.

You may be wondering why game testers are required. Can’t the programmers who gave birth to the actual game, test it? Well, practically they can’t. That is the difference between a programmer and a game tester. Programmers can never find those bugs which expert gamers will easily find out. If a company pays you $40 or $50 for every hour you play and you find out a serious setback of the game, which if launched, may lead to huge losses, then it is an excellent deal for both the company as well as the tester. This is the main reason why you are paid, just for playing video games which are yet to be launched. สล็อต

There are various types of testing for any game. Localization testing is the basic of any testing as it just deals with the checking of language, spelling or any grammatical errors in the game. Beta testing is yet another type which simply points to any type of testing in the “beta” stage commonly known as the first stage of game development. After that is regression testing, which is done after a bug has been edited by the programmer. It is mainly done to check out if the bug still exists or not. Another type is compatibility testing in which the game is tested for its hardware mechanics viz; the basic requirements like RAM, hard disk space, processors and others. There is also testing which includes strict checking for bugs.
