Brief History of Video Games

Brief History of Video Games

Video games have only been around for 30 or 40 years. In that short time span, video game production has gone through some dramatic changes. The first playable video games were housed on huge multimillion-dollar mainframes. Early in the history of video games, they were seen as specialized oddities created to prove technical concepts. Games have come a long way from their unassuming roots. Today everyone has access to video games. The formats of video games have expanded also from their humble early stages, a simple one-person arcade-based entertainment to massive multiplayer environments.

Consider that in the late 70s, Activision, Electronic Arts, and other pioneering companies would simply place their games in plastic bags with Xeroxed instruction pamphlets. These early marketing attempts were sold in small specialty stores because there wasn’t a conventional way to distribute the games to players. However, as demand for video games increased, better marketing, production, distribution, and packaging methods were created. By the mid-1980s, video games for various console systems were sold in every major store in the world.

This insatiable demand for video games quickly transitioned from the best-marketed games to an arms race of technology. No longer was it important to just market your game better than your competition, but one had to develop better graphics, faster frame rates, and longer, more involved storylines. Advances in the technology that drives game performance and graphics have grown at an incredible pace. Just consider that a smartphone one may play games on today is a thousand times more powerful than those multimillion-dollar computers that were first used to play games.

Brief History of Video Games

Improvements in technology will continue to directly impact how video games are made. But technology isn’t the only influence on video game evolution. The driving force behind the continued dominance of video games as entertainment will be from the players of the games. As long as there are players that want new, better, more engaging games to play, games will lead the entertainment market. Here are some statistics to think about. In 1980, Atari, a pioneering company in the development of arcade and home-based consoles, becomes the fastest-growing company in the history of America.

There is a home gaming console of one type or another in 51 percent of all US homes. 4 out of 5 US households own a device to play games. The average age of a female game player today is 43 years old, while the average age of a male game player is 35. I think you’ll agree video games aren’t going away any time soon. The demand for more games and better technology has directly impacted how game development teams are structured. Next let’s take a look at the modern game studio.

 

All Crytek Warface servers are offline

All Crytek Warface servers are offline

Warface is to be pulled down from its parcel in downtown Gface and, pending a ton of sawing, pounding and a lot of bug fumigation, reassembled on the same spot for its full discharge. In any case, until further notice, in case you’re in the shut beta, it’s an ideal opportunity to discover another approach to get your knees shot off.

Warface will go logged off today at 5pm PDT/midnight GMT for an “augmented time of server downtime”, amid which Crytek plan to enhance the amusement with reference to player criticism ahead of time of a full, still unannounced, discharge. The welcome just form of the designer’s social stage, Gface, will keep on operating as would be expected – however honestly there’ll be little to do while the war’s not on.

As a devoted Warface beta player myself, Crytek have educated me that I’ll be the “first to know” when it’s back on the web. In any case, I don’t know in case I’m alright with that. I was simply starting to cut out a corner for myself as an Engineer. I’d puzzled up enough in-amusement money for a snipery automatic weapon scope and a precision improving silencer, and my K/D proportion was on the up and do you realize what I think I’ll play only one more round. Do you hear me, Warface? We’re not done here.

For more on why Crytek’s most recent is more than the total of the fast impact maths of Call of Duty in addition to Counter-Strike, read out Warface hands-on.

Clash Royale looks like a further more improvised civilization with a bit more advanced troops.  Many doubted that this game was the second part of Clash Of Clans. Clash Royale is not the second part of Clash Of Clans. Both the games are separate and are developed by different teams.

The troops in the game are a lot similar and are now seemingly all the same. But there are few other characters in the game that are different too.

Troops like minions, Giants, Pekka and all remain the same (though with a few changes in the looks). The game in the other hand is a total change. No more intense base management required and technically speaking a total algo change.

The game has also increased the time the players can actually play the game instead of waiting for few 10 days upgrading! Level ups and upgrades are instant and don’t bug around that much. Though I noticed something about waiting period in the people who reviewed the game.

You guys really need to consider reducing chest waiting times, as they are pretty crazy long… I understand you guys use this method for profit on your end via gem buyers… But try make it fair for the rest, other wise we need a somewhat free gem system. Also, allow us to have more chest slots. Slots fill up rather quickly, forcing players who do not spend money on the game to log off, if they cannot gem… Lastly, coins run out quickly due to upgrades… Just putting it out there. Great game though! Very addicting! (If you have gems lol)

The maps and game looks different too, unlike Clash Of Clans, Clash Royale is not in land scape view.

How to get gems and resources in Clash Of Clans?

How to get gems and resources in Clash Of Clans?

If you are reading this post expecting to find a hack or something, well you wont be finding any but in the end you will know how to get around 3000 gems inside the game.

Why is there no hack for Clash Of Clans?

The app you have in your device named Cash Of Clans with the barbarian icon is not the game. The game runs in Super Cells server. The app in your device just syncs what happens in the server and does not let you write anything in the server instead lets you read what’s in the server.



So what is the point of cracking the app? Even when you try to crack the app (even if you did) next time you login the first thing Super Cell will do is check the values match (The gem and resources in the app and server matches or not). If not server refreshes the app and the values go back to original ones of the servers. Not possible. The only way you can do that is by changing the value from inside the server, again never gonna happen.

So what is next? How can I get gems and resources in Clash Of Clans?

The in game method, simply clear all the bushes and stones and you will get maximum of 6 gems per bush, tree or a stone. The distribution is not random.

gem sequence order

gem sequence order

it goes like 6-0-4-5-1-3-2-0-0-5-1-0-3-4-0-0-5-0-1-0



So you will be getting 40 gems if you remove 20 obstacles. That’s not bad ha? Many thought this was random and they are just wrong. In an average you get 2 gems removing obstacles.

Complete challenges.

Complete Challenges to get rewards. Rewards are from a minimum of 10 to 250 that is pretty good but getting those rewards is not easy as it sounds like. Any how gem is a gem.

Make use of forums.

Making use of forums like discussplay.com

Discuss Play is an emerging smartphone gaming forum that is just simple and works excellent. Every month 2k gems are gifted as Playstore and Apple store gift vouchers that can be used to redeem gems. If you come across any other site please do share.

Clash of Clans with more than 100 million downloads is one of the most downloaded games in Android and Iphone devices. With a huge audience this game is addictive and exciting through out. But it looks like Clash of Clans has reached it’s declining stage. Not that I am saying it does not have the potential to fight to stay on the top of the ‘grossing’ list. People are getting bored out playing the game on and on. Maybe Super Cell comes up with a new update in the game like what they did last time to retain user engagement.

Not at all similar to Clash Of Clans, a very good strategy game I would say. Its in its rising stage and we can hope to see a lot of changes very soon. But until then the game is a brain smelter and terrifically built without any bugs. The game is tough though and there are times when you will have to buy new heroes (they are never free). With a few set backs the game still manages to engage user to the maximum, worth giving a try.

Marvel Contest of Champions

Unlike any of these games I mentioned I cant say that it’s a full strategy game. But it is a very interesting action game with almost all the heroes from Marvel joined together. The game requires a full time internet connection and does support one on one online matches. There is a good chance for this game to be on the top of ‘grossing’ lists in play store.





The game comprises of many online events too. The online community also is a very interactive one that increase the user engagement in the game.

Good Game Empire

I wouldn’t rate much more for this game but yes this is a game you could enjoy if you figure out how to play. The game is jut too complicated. If you are patient enough to stay and learn the game then why not give a try? The game is a strategy game just like Clash Of Clans with a bigger headache and wars are not live (you don’t get to see em fight ).
