Assassin's Creed: Valhalla — Exploring the 10 main locations in England
If you've played the latest version of the Assassin's Creed anthology, you will have probably enjoyed exploring familiar towns and cities throughout England as our favourite drengr, Eivor. But have you wondered about the names of these places and how much influence the Vikings, Romans and Anglo-Saxons actually had through invading and settling in Britannia?
Games and Transmedia
The modern market is filled with debatable concepts and transmedia is one of them. There is plenty of discussion around the term, its distinguishing features, and use cases but the fact remains – it is difficult to launch a selling product without engaging transmedia.
The Unspoken truths
By: Tonya McLean Video games have been a part of our culture for decades; the industry as a whole is over 70 years old. The first game was created in 1958. Most games have been claimed to take place in the world of fiction or fantasy others based on real things like Sports or Simulations. For years this claim has given parents no reason to believe that games wouldn’t have real life facts included in them. However, what the parents didn’t realize is that even though games are based in the world of fantasy and fiction that fact was mostly for the story, not the actions that took place in the game; sometimes the story has real life in it as well. For example, the Legend of Zelda series back story is that the world was created from 3 goddesses each represented by a triangle. There are parallels to religion and under those beliefs how the world was created. In the first of the Tomb Raider remake series the team gets stranded on an island in the Dragon’s Triangle in Japan and there really is a Dragon’s Triangle in Japan. The survival strategies in all three of those games are real life facts as well. There’s one fact that expands all video games. That fact is that the player needs determination and problem solving skills in order to beat the game. Such characteristics and skills are needed in order to make it in life.

CHAPTER 1 She finished. The last line of code to her video game was completed. Excitement ran through her. This was it. This is the video game to end all video games. Now it just needed to be played; to work out the kinks.
It was another normal day, or so I thought. I packed my bag as the bell rang and rushed outside only to find myself lying unconscious in the street.
People pick games of chance every day. Just waking up in the morning can be a gamble. A wheel of life spins for all of us and we hope that each spin lands on fortune.
The CIA Monitors and Analyzes My Bejeweled Gaming Activity
I always suspected they were watching, as my frequent and fevered Bejeweled Blitz sessions routinely push the expected limits of gem-chasing intensity. Where newbie and casually mainstream players swipe at painfully obvious three-tile matches, aimlessly passing the hours of their simple lives, CIA analysis of my historic (and continuing) gameplay clearly demonstrates an uncanny propensity for setting up powerful three-plus-gem matches, exploding the board into impossibly endless cascades and prompting unparalleled, nonstop deep-voiced adulation from the game’s narrator.
Among Us But With Danganronpa Elements (Prologue)
Black (me) is on a dropship with 13 other crewmates. I don’t know any of them, and they probably don’t know me. All I do know is that we were tasked with completing tasks to wherever we are going, since our boss told us so. Wait… why don’t I at least recognize one of them if we are all co-workers?! Am I that antisocial?!?!
Little Black Book
I was walking home from work one evening; I came across something that looked like someone had lost their wallet. It didn't take me long to realize later that it was a little black book. I seriously wanted to return the little black book back to the owner, but I had no successful luck for weeks.
Bitcoin. It’s February 2021 and on the forefront of everyone’s mind as it trades at over $48,000 USD per 1 Bitcoin. My first encounter with Bitcoin was as a young gamer. I was 16, and mildly financially conscious as you’d expect a 16-year-old undergraduate student to be without any real concept of budgeting or money in 2009. At the time, Bitcoin was written off as a joke – a kind of worthless entity only pale nerds and geeky gamers cared about. Monopoly money. A fleeting interest due to the amount of time required to mine Bitcoin – two weeks for 2 Bitcoin for some. I’ll share – I had entered a game that had a bitcoin bonus of 30 Bitcoins associated with it just because, free money. I’m embarrassed to admit that with Bitcoin at its current value, I downloaded a VPN from Norton just to figure out if I could find it. Sadly, it is woefully lost to me – good thing I made it through school and made something of myself. I do enjoy my career, but I’ve long missed gaming.
