14 Reasons Gaming Is Good For You

No matter where you look, someone somewhere is going to tell you that screen time and gaming is a bad thing. That they’re for lazy people. They’ll rot your brain. They’ll give you square eyes. You’ll be boring. You never go anywhere. They’re not helping you study. Those are all things that naysayers will regularly say to put you off playing with your games, and they shouldn't stop you from enjoying yourself. 

 

In fact, if people do come up to you and tell you how bad something you enjoy is, turn around and walk in the other direction. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life , particularly when this is the kind of negativity that can make you feel low, unhappy and as if your preferences and choices are wrong. You deserve better than that, and you deserve to do things in your personal time that make you feel good and happy. When you were a kid, you might have played games on GameBoy consoles and Sega MegaDrive and they would have brought you joy. As an adult, gaming on PC, PlayStation, mobile gaming apps and more are all there for you to play whenever you want to. You can be an adult gamer and still have a valid hobby, and if you’re on the fence as to why gaming is a good thing, let’s pour cold water on the doubters and talk about all the reasons you need!

You’re going to be able to solve problems because of your gaming. Yes! You are going to develop some of the best problem solving skills around because of the time that you spend gaming.

You never start out as a genius as a gamer, but you’re going to fail a few times to get there. Those problem solving skills are going to seep into your everyday life, and you will be able to solve issues that don't even occur in the game itself.

How to Get Into the Games Industry

To get into the game industry is an elastic term. You can try to form your own "Dream Team" and follow the path of an indie enthusiast, mastering all the subtleties of game building on your own. You can go through specialized courses.  Or you can find a classic entry-level job at a large company and learn the basics of teamwork there. But, sooner or later, you can still be faced with another job search. It doesn't matter if it will be connected with the closure of the company/downsizing of the ranks, or if a tired of indie developers will want to do something more ambitious as a team member of a big game company - in all cases, you will have to look for a job. In this article, I will tell you what can help both beginners and established professionals to find a job in the game industry.

TIP#1 LOVE WHAT YOU DO & SPECIALIZE

 

The reason why I say this is because if you’re excited to go to work then you’re going to do a good job. So, picking a path is picking what part of game development you want to be a part of. Do you want to be involved in art, in design, in programming - or do you want to be a support function? Do you want to work in IT, work in Consumer Experience, in Branding? There are many jobs within games not just game design. If you’re passionate about games, if you love playing games, you love watching games, whatever it might be just stick with that for that. Use your knowledge of games and bring that with you into the industry.

TIP#2 BE CURIOUS & EAGER TO LEARN

 

This is about educating yourself, being knowledgeable about your topic and it doesn’t necessarily mean going to university. You can self-teach online. But one of the things we really look for is practical experience. So, have you done an internship? Or are you involved in communities? Do you have an active portfolio? Do you have passion projects? Things that you are working on and developing all the time. Every job ad that we post we list some of the tools that you would need in those roles. So I would suggest looking at those tools and pick them up as a hobby may be. Develop your skills with those tool sets. Obviously, if it’s Programming or Game Design you want to look at Unity and Unreal. And then maybe more design skills like Photoshop, Brush. All these things will help you to develop your craft.

So, if you’re getting started in Brawlhalla and want to improve, my biggest piece of advice will be; play a LOT. This is a simple tip that is a constant for improvement in any game.

This blog post will cover six tips that will help you do just that - change your Minecraft experience for the better.

5 Ways to Optimize Your Gaming Space Setup

So, you’ve got the latest, greatest and fastest gaming PC. Your system is fully optimized and you’re ready to play. But what about your space? Whether you’re a long-time gamer who just built a new PC or you’re new to video gaming, the days of having to resort to playing your favorite games in a dark, cramped and bland basement or corner are gone. And even if yours aren’t (sorry Mom) you can have a sweet gaming setup no matter how much room you’ve got. Besides the systems, gaming accessories and furniture have become big business. As a result, you’ve got choices when it comes to optimizing the space.

 

  1. Gaming desk

 

When you’re looking for a desk or table, such as those reviewed in a list from Tom’s Guide, for your PC gaming space, look at the size of the room or area in the room and at how much space you need for your computer and your monitor, multiple monitors or even a large-screen TV. Also consider how much storage or space for storage you will require. Will you need built-in shelves, cubbies and drawers? Do you want your desk to have extra space for you to add your own storage and desk organizers? Will you be storing game cases and accessories in the desk itself?

Underrated Strategy Games For PC You Need To Play

If you’re a hardcore RTS fan, you’ve probably played all the big games like Age of Empires and Command & Conquer to death. Fortunately, there are countless underrated PC strategy games out there just waiting to be played. Here are a few great PC strategy games that are often overlooked. 

Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds

Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds was released by Ensemble Studios back in 2001. It’s got exactly the same mechanics as classic medieval strategy game Age of Empires 2, except it’s set in the Star Wars universe. Factions range from the Galactic Empire to the Wookies. While perhaps a little clunky by today’s standards, the game makes up for it with its expansiveness and still has a loyal online multiplayer following.

MOBA drafting: Tips for a Successful Team Composition

When the draft time arrives, you have a lot to think about. Whether it is your first draft or just your first time playing with a certain team, knowing what to do is a must. From knowing how to predict your LoL match outcome to getting the first-round draft picks right, use the tips and information below to have a positive experience.

Assess Your Team

One of the first things you must do before thinking about the draft phase is to find out how your teammates play and who they are. While getting an overpowered composition in the game is good, it may be a bad idea if you have teammates who are in roles they are unfamiliar with.

While it isn’t required that each person play the same role every tie, you need to know the capabilities of your teammates. Be sure that you all understand one another’s hero pools and their preferred roles, which will help you with your draft.

Engaging in voice communication is recommended, as this can help increase the effectiveness of your drafting. It’s a good idea to discuss your strategies before queuing up to have a general idea of your team’s plans. If you don’t have a voice, at least use the “thumbs up” option and the role indicator to communicate the strategies you plan to use.

12 Minutes Review: A Hauntingly Engaging Thriller

 

By: Kelvin Teh

 

Thriller is a niche genre, especially when it comes to video games. Good ones are few and far in between. Some of the memorable ones that I could recall from the top of my head would be Telltale Games' The Wolf Among Us and Playdead’s Limbo.

 

And when one of my friends recommended 12 Minutes to me, I was very sceptical. The premise was pretty formulaic where the main objective is to uncover the mystery behind your upcoming death and accused wife.
