First Great Console War

The video game industry isn’t quite as dangerous as the Normandy landings, but with a finite number of potential buyers wielding a finite amount of money to spend, console manufacturers will do what they need to do to sell their product to the masses. When Pong was first released in a home version it had to duke it out with a slew of knock offs for market supremacy. Later came the Atari 2600 which dominated sales against largely forgotten systems like ColecoVision. After the North American video game crash of ’83 it looked like console gaming was done for in the States, but Nintendo and SEGA were about to enter the fray, and console gaming would be changed forever.

Nintendo were a card game company that had seen the interest in board games and card games decline since the arrival of arcades, and like any good company that sees the market they’re in shift, they adapted. Moving into arcade gaming and toys, Nintendo found some measure of success with their new ventures, and the next logical step was to move in on the home video game market. Atari were the big name in gaming but the crash

Titanfall for Xbox

Leaving the Military Game

Don’t get me wrong, Call of Duty and Battlefield are great games. I’ve enjoyed many years of service with those games. When I started playing Titanfall to write a Titanfall review, however, I remembered the good old days with extreme physics, crazy weapons, and cool, futuristic battlegrounds. For so long I had been confined to a military-based games with weapons based on real weapons, battlegrounds straight from Iraq or eastern Europe, and actual physics. As soon as I started I started jumping high and throwing grenades 100 yards, I thought to myself, “Oh yeah, video games don’t have to be real. They’re actually really great when I can do things that I can’t do in the real world.

Weapons, Weapons, Weapons

Once you break out of the military standard for a arena-based shooter, I found when play for the purpose of writing a Titanfall review, I loved the machines and the weapons you get to play with. Just having a larger gun and big mechanical suits that the game makers balance very well. Having a Titan load and dropping down into the battle is great fun and flows seamlessly during gameplay.


About Gauntlet

Menu is quite simple, for the first time you play the game it helps you jump in tutorial directly and it teaches you about basics and heroes. There are 4 heroes, the Warrior Thor, the Elf Questor, the Wizard Merlin and the Valkyrie Thyra. All heroes have 4 abilities, left click for regular attack, right click for heavy attack, shift for a fast movement ability and space for main skill. Right click is pretty useful for all heroes, it needs time to focus but it one shots most of the time. You can spam shift ability to dodge attacks or jump in the middle of the action, it is up to you how to use this fast movement skill. Space is the best skill and we need to wait to use it again. Yes, cooldown thing!

Warrior dishes out a good amount of damage but I can’t say he is defensive, you just need to swing your axe carefully. While you focus and attack some enemies, other enemies may hit you from other sides damaging you heavily and breaking your combo chain. Whirlwind (space) ability helps a lot. Rush (shift) is good to get out of trouble


Chess Cheating Online

He uses a wide opening repertoire

Every game, the computer chooses a random opening. If you challenge your opponent game after game, you will see that he is a great theoretician. A chess engine won’t wait for the middle of the game to take an advantage; it will outplay you right in the beginning. The time of thinking is short because the engine doesn’t calculate until it is out of the book.

He takes the same amount of time to play a move

When there is contact between pieces, we normally enter the calculation stage which is time-consuming. Sometimes there is a position when the move is evident or simply we should play intuitively; in this case, we don’t take much time. The chess engine doesn’t respect this pattern. It literally uses the same amount of time for every type of position.

Its statics is weird

You can easily find a cheater by looking at his statics. If we see an abnormal curve like a drop of 150 points in a couple of days then there is something wrong. Fortunately, the majority of sites give you access to the history of your opponent.


Space Rangers

Hybrid theory

But before I get caught up in my own drinking anecdotes, terribly amusing though they may be, I’d better get on with it. I am after all in the business of assigning words and eventually numbers to subjective experiences such as this particular piece of entertainment, and it’s not often that I get to rant about a game quite like this one. You know all those times you imagined yourself as a game designer, thinking “why doesn’t anyone combine many genres into one immersive, omnipotent package?”

Well, mostly because games of this type tend to become awfully bland, because none of the elements really work. Rockstar might have achieved something like it with their GTA franchise, but even though that may be free-form gaming at its finest, GTA is not nearly as much of a hybrid experience as Space Rangers way back then. It’s like the design philosophy of the Russian guys at Elemental Games involved ignoring all the warning signs, and then happily driving right off the old cliff. You’d think this would result in an awful lot of crashing and burning, but it really doesn’t. Space Rangers is a charming, deep game,

Unless you have seen one of these games in action, then it can be quite difficult to describe what is so impressive about them. When playing an eSports game the main aim of the game is to usually kill or defeat the other player and these games are extremely fast which can make them quite difficult to keep up with.

There are also many International tournaments available to play too. Some of the tournaments that you may have heard of are from the game publisher Vale, who

Call of Duty Ghosts

This game begins years after an attack on America where the player takes the character of unusual service fighters known as Ghosts. Ten years after the original attack a different force attacks the seemingly weak nation and almost crumbles its military. However, the remnants of different operational forces join together to create a single force called Ghosts. This is a group of soldiers with a deep conviction to save their nation and deliver it from the hands of the external forces. They are willing to do whatever it takes not only to save but protect all that is left of their nation. Unlike other video games the thrilling factor added to this game is a dog soldier which the forces are using to their advantage. The dog identifies any explosives that are invisible to the soldiers. Although this canine proves to be of great help to the soldiers, it poses another responsibility to the soldiers. Besides being in war and fighting with a more superior enemy, the soldiers have to take care of their canine friend.

Unlike other Call of Duty video games this series uses Pixar’s SubD technology so as to perk up the efficiency of
