Being a pro gamer is not a cheap thing to achieve. There is plenty of equipment to purchase and it is not the cheapest, but also not too expensive. You are getting your moneys worth for what you pay for. In my detailed post I mentioned gaming equipment, I am going to go into more detail on the different equipment a pro gamer should have. First things first is a controller. Now you can use just a standard controller or you can use what most pros use and that is a Scuf controller. You can either buy a Scuf controller and add some customization to it our you can mail in your own controller and customize it and have it mailed back to you. By customization I mean adding a skin design to the controller, adding grip, changing the kind controller stick, and or adding paddles. Now the skin design is just what covers the base of the controller, so instead of having a plain black controller you could have a red and black controller. It just makes the controller look cooler. The grip
5. Lester Crest
Lester is the mastermind behind all the heists and although he suffers from a wasting disease which has gradually worn down his motor skills during his life and left him wheelchair-bound he is still no less of a threat. He excels best behind his computer screen and is not a person you would like to piss off.
At an unknown point in time, Lester met and became affiliated with Michael Townley and Trevor Philips, becoming a regular member of their heist crews since the start of their partnership.
4. Lamar Davis
Lamar is the best friend of Franklin Clinton they both went to Davis High School together when they were teenagers. Eventually, the two men became involved in crime. Now going about stealing (or “repo-ing”) cars for the dealership where they work. Lamar always has something intelligent to say, even if he doesn’t have the eloquence to really say it, and he shows that there is more to a small time gangster than meets the eye.
Fun Fact: Lamar was originally supposed to be the character that Franklin ended up being but due to a last
#5. Games Were Simpler Back In The Day
Video games have unquestionably become more ambitious and impressive in recent years. When you look at the likes of The Last Of Us, it’s impossible to overstate just how far video games have come since people were playing Pong forty-odd years ago. But for all the innovations within the medium, and for all the new fangled ideas and increasingly elaborate control schemes, there’s something to be said for how much more straight forward things were in the games we played as kids.
Gaming today can be difficult for people without the muscle memory that comes from years of dedicated gaming. Give your mum or dad a PS4 controller and if they’re anything like mine they’ll spend half the time playing the game looking down, attempting in vain to remember where all the buttons are. Use the left analog stick to walk, hold X to jog, or tap X to sprint. L2 is aim and R2 is shoot, but R1 becomes shoot if you’re driving because in a car R2 is the accelerator. R3 (that’s when you click in
Believe it or not, online gaming is the biggest thing today. Capitalizing on this huge market, app developers are constantly launching new games with the best graphics and highly engaging gameplay. Not just that, they design and create them in various formats to cater to a varied audience.
Now if you’re a diehard fan of online games, here’s a lowdown on the different genres; something you definitely need to know.
1. Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORPG) – Gaming actually saw a spurt when it became social with the introduction of Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORPG). The thrill and adventure lies in competing with other players, playing simultaneously in the virtual world. They are called role playing games because you take up roles as you move through the game. Most of these are not free; you have to pay to access certain premium features or to level up.
2. Real time strategy – As the name suggests, real time strategy games call for an immediate response from the players; it is played in real time. They combine strategy and action and can be highly addictive. Real time strategy includes building the inventory by gathering resources, fighting armies, building base, creating
The “Wikipedia problem” which means children turning to internet for readymade answers is the new age phenomenon baffling teachers and mentors globally. There are almost equal numbers of teachers who consider technology to be a solution as much as a problem. While a common belief is that technology is hindering the students’ capacity to think and analyze, there is also a strong opinion in favor of video games and digital gadgets’ ability to engage students and enhance learning by using more than one sensory stimulators. In spite of the growing concern about the students’ deteriorating attention spans, institutions are incorporating them in the process of classroom learning.
Children are inherently inquisitive creatures. They have a curiosity to discover new things and learn by way of discovering and experimenting even before they are subjected to methods of formal education such as reading or writing. Science is a discipline of experiments and discoveries. The National Science Education Standards emphasize that “science education needs to give students three kinds of scientific skills and understandings. Students need to learn the principles and concepts of science, acquire the reasoning and procedural skills of scientists, and understand the nature of science as a particular form of human
A lot of the youth are inclined to playing online play-offs now. Not only the young but the elders are also equally fascinated by the online games. The sole reason behind this is that the gaming system has undergone massive changes from the earlier days, say, 10 years back. Earlier the games had to be installed in one’s PC and then one could have played. Now, a person can buy gift cards if he or she wants to play a particular game. However, playing online games have advantages as well as disadvantages.
The advantages of online gaming are as follows-
• Online play-offs offer trial versions. This allows the users to buy the games only if they like it in the trial period. This also allows the ease to buy a play-off from the ease of their home without running to the stores.
• In online games, the users get exclusive content for the games they are playing. This is the reason why many people choose them.
• Another exciting aspect of online gaming is that they allow communication. The players can interact with their friends and family while they are playing. This is simply a great thing for thy game lovers. The good
You’ve probably heard some of your friends mention it all the time, and if you’re on the internet it’s most likely that you’ve stumbled upon hundreds of people talking about “LoL”, but what is this League of Legends so many people talk about? If you’re wondering that chances are you’ve been leaving under a rock for the past eight years.
League of Legends, or simply “LoL”, as it’s commonly abbreviated, is one of the biggest multiplayer online battle arena (or MOBA, for friends) in the industry. In this game you control a character, or “champion” as they’re called in the game, and team up with other players against the enemy team. The goal is to destroy the other team’s Nexus, which is pretty much the core of their base.
What exactly are League of Legends Champions? League of Legends Champions are only another word use for a character. Each champion has its different set of abilities and role inside a team, so the team must keep good communication in order to stay organized and defeat the opponent team. The characters usually start at a basic level and they get stronger as players collect items and experience, of course this is restarted every
If you want to enjoy a variety of PC games, having a powerful machine is a good idea. But even if you don’t have a fast computer, you can still have a lot of fun provided you are connected to the Internet. You don’t need to install these games. All you have to do is go to the game site and hit the play button to start your desired game. Given below are some of the titles that you would love to play.
If you love golf, Wonderputt should be your choice. The game offers mini golf courses, herds of sheep and lily pads. This game feature a puzzle box design. Once you beat a hole, the game evolves and becomes different to show you new sections. So, it rejuvenates you to keep playing.
From its appearance, the game looks nondescript and dumb. However, when you delve a bit deeper, the game offers becomes so hilarious and crazy that you will have a lot of fun. Just make sure turn up the volume so you can understand the entire story.
After the launch, this title became so popular among players that the developers launched another sequel for the enthusiastic players. However, the
Whether or not a game or system qualifies as retrogaming is a tough thing to quantify and something that different people will often think very differently about. The ‘retro’ in the word ‘retrogaming’ is in itself a bit of a little bit misleading. Retro, by definition, is a style that intentionally evokes memories of an older style that has since gone out of fashion. So movies from the ’30s aren’t retro, but The Artist, a recent movie made in the style of an old silent movie, is retro. If we apply the same logic to video games then something like Mega Man isn’t retro, but a game like Shovel Knight is because it pays homage to the NES games of old. Gamers have appropriated the word ‘retro’ into the new word ‘retrogaming’, but unlike the traditional definition, ‘retrogaming’ refers to playing old games rather than games that play like old games.
The origins of the word ‘retrogaming’ are, as we’ve established, pretty murky to begin with, but the definition isn’t any clearer. With the speed at which technology develops, games released at the start of a console generation look noticeably worse than those released at the end of the generation. And
f you’re a gamer and you’ve given more than a cursory glance to industry news in the last couple of years then you’ll probably be aware of how Microsoft well and truly bungled the launch of the Xbox One. Whether it was arrogance, hubris, or just sheer bone-headedness, somebody at Microsoft really misjudged the marketing for the latest Xbox console, and the effects of that can still be felt today as the PS4 dominates the charts month after month. Sony might be celebrating now, but they too found themselves in a similar situation last generation when they tried to launch their PS3 amid controversy, a high price point, and bad marketing.
While Microsoft are in the middle of rehabilitating their image following the Xbox One DRM debacle and Sony implemented what they’d learned from the relative failure of the PS3 to improve the PS4, at least those companies are still releasing consoles. Back in 1995, SEGA were one of “the big two” when it came to console gaming (along with Nintendo) but some appalling marketing decisions with the Saturn put the company into a tailspin that it never truly recovered from, resulting in the early abandonment of their next console, the
After almost five months on the market, Nintendo has revealed some surprising hardware and software sales pertaining to its newest console handheld hybrid, I would go as far as saying these numbers are impressive. I applaud Nintendo for putting their sales out there and seeing the numbers have made me a proud Switch owner.
I had never really cared about Nintendo, I wouldn’t even go as far as saying I do now. I had owned a Gamecube near the end of its life cycle, sold it after a few months. I owned a Wii like everybody in the world, but hardly played it, it collects dust somewhere at my parents house. Late last year I bought a 3DS and traded it it a month later. Nintendo has never been able to keep my attention and keep me coming back to their console and play their games. Until now that is. The Switch has been the best gaming experience this year for me, hardware and software alike, which says a lot in such a home run year for gaming across the board.
Last week Nintendo announced that their newest console has sold 4.7 million units since its launch back in March. This is
Lately in the gaming world many new consoles have been introduced. Choosing one can be difficult but one of the most popular and most chosen is the Nintendo Wii. The Wii is chosen for many different reasons such as its ability to be played online, its motion and wireless allowed play and most of all the awesome games that you can get for the Wii.
Fun for the Wii

Since man first learned how to fashion undergarments from fig leaves, humanity has scarcely lasted five minutes without starting a war. Whether it’s for land, for religion, or to take down a rotten egg like Hitler and his cronies, we as a people are prone to letting our fists do the talking a little too often. Commonly, resources are the reason that we go to war, whether those in power care to admit it or not. President Bush might like to tell you that he invaded the Middle East for the good of the people, but it just so happens there’s also a hell of a lot of oil over there. When there’s not enough to go around, everyone wants to make sure they get their share. As Tears For Fears once sang, ‘Everybody Wants To The Rule The World’.
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
Everyone in this world at some point has heard of Pokemon by now. And as a result people around the world have to come to have their own favorite Pokemon that they like a lot especially. Well in this article I am here to convince you why Charmander is a cool Pokemon and hopefully he will be able to enter one of your favorites by the end of this.
1. His Fire typing
One of Charmander’s strongest points is his cool and unique typing. Charmander is a fire lizard style Pokemon, which makes him have a very unique build and design surrounding him. He has a flame and fire rested on his tail that would give out and eliminate his life span immediately is the flame was drenched and extinguished by water of any kind, luckily such an important feature is durable for such a delicate Pokemon.
2. Variety of cool moves
Charmander and its lineage of evolution is known to be able to learn a variety of cool movies and techniques. Charmander can learn a variety of moves like Fire type attacks and even Dragon Type attacks as well. Some of its Dragon movies include moves like Dragon Rage in which it can
Today I like to talk about an integral part of my computer/technology career. Unexpectedly, it is my skill on the game called Counter-Strike. I would like to impart to my readers my knowledge which helped me to be regarded as sort of an “expert” on the field of the said game. More than anything, I want to teach you how be the best on it. Also, I would like to discuss the significance it has in my life and the potential it has to touch others’ lives too.
I can’t imagine life without Counter-Strike (specifically the version 1.3 one). Needless to say, you can tell that I am nostalgic about it. I heard about the latest version that the makers of Counter-Strike are developing right now, which is Counter-Strike Global Offensive. I can already see the importance of your experience on playing Counter-Strike 1.3 on becoming good on that latest version; which can become handy especially now that on the tournaments of these stuff, you can get something over a million dollars as a prize.
So, let’s go into the heart of it: how to be good on counter-strike 1.3? Number 1, Brightness. Enemies are hard to see with the default brightness
The best way to improve at Starcraft 2 is to play a lot. It sounds silly, but it’s simply true. When I started playing, I was originally placed in gold league and stayed there for a full three months. Then, slowly but surely, I rose up until I was in the top 50 Grandmasters in America.
Obviously, not everyone can become a Grandmaster (it requires, amongst other things, exceptional reflexes, reaction time and coordination), but I firmly believe that, with practice, everyone can become a master at Starcraft 2.
The first thing to work on is understand the game mechanics, namely: armor vs non-armored, range, attack speed, damage reduction, hidden bonuses, splash damage, etc. For instance, one thing that makes the Terran siege tanks so powerful is the fact that they might hit not just one unit, but up to 8. Obviously, the 70 damage they can quickly become 300-400, making them one of the highest-damage units in the game.
Every unit has its particularities and becoming intrinsically familiar with them will greatly improve your play. Any Protoss player, for instance, knows how to individually blink their stalkers to save them as they are about to die. Likewise, a Zerg player knows not
Pyramid solitaire is a fun solitaire game that’s quite different to normal solitaire- in most solitaire games you build up cards onto a foundation, but in Pyramid solitaire you remove cards! Cards can only be removed when they add up to 13. With it’s easily recognisable layout (shaped like a pyramid), and requiring a combination of luck and skill, it’s a popular solitaire game played by many.
The basic rules are…
- You win if you can remove ALL cards from play
- Cards are removed in pairs, when they add up to 13
- You can deal from the talon at any time
- You get 2 redeals of the talon
- Only a maximum of 2 cards are visible from the talon at any time
You can only use cards that are completely uncovered( If a card is in the pyramid but covered by another card, you cannot select it)
For example, if a part of the pyramid looks like this…
... K... ... Q.7... ..2.4.7.. .5.8.K.J.
Initially you won’t be able to pair the Jack with the two (because the two is covered by the five and the eight cards). Start by removing the five and eight. Now the 2 card will be uncovered, and can be paired with the Jack card.
