    How Game Development Services Have Improved With Time

    If you think about games in the initial days, you will find them very simple and easy with minimum or no interaction. Mobile games or digital games during those times were a real fantasy. However, with days passing by, mobile phones have become advanced in terms of features and functionalities and with that progression digital games also got better. Too many factors are responsible for this which have been discussed below.

    Title Screen From ‘LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga’ May Have Leaked

    Legos and Star Wars have gone hand in hand for about as long as The Phantom Menace has been around. They are two brands that have fueled the imaginations of many people around the world. Many kids (and adults) over the years have had the chance to build Star Wars characters and vehicles out of Lego pieces. The popularity of the line eventually led to the launch of a video game series from Traveller's Tales, starting with 2005's Lego Star Wars: The Video Game. Along with the video games that followed since then, there have been Lego Star Wars shorts and TV shows.

    Gaming as Art

    Gaming as Art

    I quite often feel that gaming is very often overlooked as an art form, even scoffed at by various groups of people as connoisseurs of art and I feel it is unfairly so. As a medium, I believe it can explore all the themes traditional art styles do and add interesting perspectives to them as they games allow players to experience them for themselves from a different perspective. Yes, there are games that are just silly fun, but there are plenty of games that explore a wide variety of subjects in interesting ways.

    10 Video Game Quotes That Hit Me Hard

    I’ve been playing video games since I was a kid, back when I was filled with anxiety and had a hard time with multiplayer games. I still do have a hard time playing PUBG, even though I paid the full $30 to have it on my computer. I’ve thought about Overwatch, knowing its ranking systems and awesome story beyond team-based online gameplay could maybe fit my style a bit better. But I think it’s just the way I am—I prefer story-based games that I can enjoy at my own pace, without having to rely on others.

    The 10 Most Fun Shrine Quests in Breath of the Wild

    The 10 Most Fun Shrine Quests in Breath of the Wild

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a game I just can't get enough of. I love exploring the open world with its different locations and climates, the wide variety of enemies to fight and the long list of quests. Today I'll specifically talk about shrine quests. Most of these are technically optional, but if you want to do all 120 shrines you're gonna have to delve into them. It's hard for me to even fit ten of them into one category, as they involve different kinds of challenges and lengths. These are ten of the most fun, interesting or entertaining (or all of the above) shrine quests from Breath of the Wild (spoiler alert!).

    'NCAA Football 14': OU, Stillwater, and Georgia Tech to the SEC Dynasty Mode Build Season 1, Part 17— Week 14: Bedlam

    So hello there again, it's been a rough time lately as I've been working 6 Days out of every 8 for the past several weeks hence how this has been so deeply delayed. In that time in real life preparations for the 2020 season we've basically lost the entire non-conference schedule, and the entire season hangs on life support. Baseball is floundering proving that Football looks less and less realistic for the fall, at least without committing to bubbles. Which since as many have been saying lately 'College Football is still trying to live in dreamland hoping this will work out'. Personally I think if this season is going to happen each Power 5 Conference should bubble up at the Current-Conference-Champions' Campuses and go from there.

The free-to-play battle royale-style gameplay only strengthened my resolve to try it out once it dropped later in the summer, since I haven't had much experience with the genre before, and with the state of the pandemic right now, I felt like I needed something new to keep my spirits up while in quarantine.

    I Tried Out Randonautica For The First Time

    I Tried Out Randonautica For The First Time

    Randonautica is an app that has gained a lot of attraction in the recent months. On the surface it’s an app that takes you on small adventures in your hometown. You open the app, and a random set of coordinates are given to you to go explore the area. But this app has a deeper, darker side to it. It is said to be able to “Glitch the Matrix” in our “simulation”. If you don’t know the Simulation theory, I will link an article at the bottom by a fellow Vocal Media author. This app hit the mainstream after two teens were led to an area by the app, that had human body parts in a suitcase. It was off the shore in Seattle, the remains were identified, but the killer(s) and motive have not yet been. This investigation is still ongoing. I’ll link that article as well. It is said that if you focus on a certain intention, positive or negative, the app will give you the directions to get to that intention. So, me being the scientific person I am, I ran an experiment. With my fiancé Celeste and high school bud Danny, we set out to test this intention theory with the Randonautica app. The kicker is, I told nobody the intentions I was thinking of, and I was thinking of five. Let’s see how many land.

    The Wonderful World of Scrap Mechanic

    The Wonderful World of Scrap Mechanic

    I knew from the moment I watched Bob build a car while Mark attempted to keep his garden safe from the oncoming onslaught of robots that I absolutely wanted, no, NEEDED to get my hands on this game. I'll link the YouTube video, so that I can give credit where credit is due. I definitely recommend watching it. It's absolutely hilarious. Anyway, everything else that happened in Markiplier's videos related to Scrap Mechanic was just an added bonus or icing on the cake, as they say. So as soon as Steam announced their summer savings list and my husband and I saw that Scrap Mechanic was on sale, we immediately jumped on the offer. I have no regrets, well, minus that time that we drove our car off to a warehouse where we died multiple times to robots with spud guns and then got lost for like 40 minutes real time. That's a stretch though; because honestly, despite the chaos that was ensuing right before my very eyes, I was still having a lot of fun even down to the cinematic ending of us making it back to base right as we ran out of gas for our vehicle. And, trust me, we had packed A LOT of gas.

    What if FFVII was a "remaster" rather than a "remake"

    First, I like Final Fantasy VII Remake, it is an excellent game that attracted both newcomers and old gamers (like me). Actually it was one of the most nostalgic thing happen to the gaming industry in the last recent years. It also has one of the most beautiful graphics when compared to other top AAA games. It might have some issues, in the other hand, it solved some of the problems that can be found in the current JRPG games, specially the ones that have real-time battle system such as Final Fantasy XV. One of those is battle. It introduced a new battle system that merge between turn-based and real-time combat, which was really welcomed by most of the fans (although some still wished turn-based system to come back, again like me). It also introduced side quest system (though, they are lengthy, I will talk about that later), but it "somehow" an extra part of the game which was "in most of its parts" enjoyable. It also introduced a new materia and weapon upgrade system, which added a way for the player to build different strategies for battles. But that are just few aspects, major ones actually, the rest are .. well.. felt normal, and sometimes weird.
