iPhone 7 for Gaming?

Apple has announced the iPhone 7, it may not be intended for gaming but you need to check this out.

Nintendo has partnered with Apple and they have shown good progress of the side scrolling runner Super Mario Run.
When it’s simple to originally overlook such information considering the shortage of media time generally dutiful to mobile titles in comparison with standard consoles and PC releases, Super Mario Run represents Nintendo’s first real debut into the mobile world.Developed by the same minds behind the initial sector-creating business, we know the title will see some typical yet programmed Mario running action and a Battle Mode.

You only have to buy the game once and they don’t provide other micro-transactions it will launch before Christmas 2016. The game is a one time payment, It will launch before Christmas this 2016 Nevertheless Nintendo’s collaboration with Apple is operating further than games, with iOS 10 set to offer Mario stickers on its keyboard it looks like Nintendo’s mobile division is stronger than we expected.

With that being said what can the new iPhone 7 provide us? Apple are offering an A10 Fusion Chip that will generate “console level” gaming. Mobile gaming has certainly rocketed in revenue in the last few years, but that’s still a bold claim. Even so, the designers behind Fruit Ninja, Halfbrick Studios, are positive. Their well-timed release Dan The Man will see console features hit the mobile medium through a strong story campaign and actions through several button combinations.

This will be built achievable through the 40% improve in functionality over the A9 chip, as well as the 50% increase in visual operation on the iPhone 7. With luck , then, Dan The Man will see in a new time of ‘midcore’ games struck the App Store.

Graphically, the iPhone 7 will feature a 4.7 inch display allowing for 1334 x 750 resolution at 326 ppi pixel density, all incorporating a new dynamic colour range display, full HD resolution in the 7 Plus, and boosted brightness capabilities. So games will definitely look significantly much better, but we were planning on that from a new iPhone. On the other hand what all of us may not primarily consider for gaming here, sits in the task of user generated content and particularly the pitching and advancement of user generated content with midcore publishers.
In a planet where console level graphics have such excellent probable, preceding years have seen mobile developers dropped in the mix due simply to the incapability to express truly outstanding visuals on an iPhone display through screenshots. Nevertheless with this souped up display, homegrown developers stand more of a chance of impressing those mid name developers with some fancy screenshots and footage.

Online gaming can boost school scores

Online gaming can boost school scores

Teenagers who regularly play online video games tend to improve their school results, according to new research from RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia.

School students who visit Facebook or chat sites every day are more likely to fall behind in maths, reading and science.
Associate Professor Alberto Posso, from RMIT’s School of Economics, Finance and Marketing, investigated the results of testing by the globally recognised Program for International Student Assessment.
PISA tested more than 12,000 Australian 15-year-olds in maths, reading and science, as well as collecting data on the students’ online activities.
Posso said video games could help students to apply and sharpen skills learned at school.
“Students who play online games almost every day score 15 points above the average in maths and 17 points above the average in science.
“When you play online games you’re solving puzzles to move to the next level and that involves using some of the general knowledge and skills in maths, reading and science that you’ve been taught during the day,” he said.
“Teachers should consider incorporating popular video games into teaching – so long as they’re not violent ones.”
Posso said teenagers who used Facebook or chat every day scored 20 points worse in maths than students who never used social media.
“Students who are regularly on social media are, of course, losing time that could be spent on study – but it may also indicate that they are struggling with maths, reading and science and are going online to socialise instead.
“Teachers might want to look at blending the use of Facebook into their classes as a way of helping those students engage.”
Posso said it was important to recognise that other factors could have a major impact on teenagers’ progress.
Repeating an academic year or skipping classes could be as bad or worse for scores than high use of social media.
Indigenous students or those from minority ethnic or linguistic groups were also at greater risk of falling behind than those using Facebook or chat every day.
The research, “Internet usage and educational outcomes among 15-year-old Australian students” has been published in the International Journal of Communication.

Sid Meier:Civilization VI Review

Sid Meier:Civilization VI Review. Overall the game is quite amazing, It actually took me hours just to finish a single game but it’s worth it.It makes you think and look at every detail in order to eliminate other civilization.

Genre: Turn-Based
Publisher: 2k Games
Developer: Firaxis Games
Platforms: Microsoft Windows, Macintosh operating systems, Personal computer, Linux
Initial release date: October 21, 2016

Hi, So this is my first blog post, and I’m reviewing Sid Meier:Civilization VI, I’m a new player on the civilization franchise, but so far I’ve had a firm grasp of the game from starting a civilization to actually winning the game.

Before you start the game you will get to choose which type of country you want to use. Different countries have different types of country bonuses, try to use different countries and strategize based on their bonuses.

For instance, Tomyris of the Scythian Empire, Can produce Two Light Cavalry units or her Sscythian Archer for double, Everytime they also kill an opposing unint, a scythian unit will receive healing bonuses. Make sure to utilize and understand their single bonuses and to how to gain an advantage to other empires.

You start up with a single Settler and  Warrior in the start of the game. You grow your empire until the last turn, there are 4 different type of resources you would need in Civilization 6. Science, Culture, Gold and Faith.

Basically you’d want to be on top on Science Culture and Faith before the last turn or you can finish in a science victory by completing a Science Mission.

Overall the game is quite amazing, It actually took me hours just to finish a single game but it’s worth it.It makes you think and look at every detail in order to eliminate other civilization. As a first time player, I’ve had alot to learn in the game. It was very addicting and it’s like a super powered Chess Game looking every details from City-States, Yields, Researches planning on which policy to use and using it as an advantage based on what situation you are in.

Although there boring moments as you’d keep skipping and wait for researches and unit production and buildings, the gameplay is a bit complicated at start but once you get a hang on it, You’ll enjoy every piece of turn you get and strategize what you’d want to do in the game.

Pros
Art Style:
The art style was amazing, it has a unique feel. I also like the fighting scenes in which every unit battles and gets lesser and lesser each fight, depending on their health. Although I skipped fight scenes since it takes doubles the time of the actual gameplay.

Character Models: Personally, I love the way how different Characters in every country moves and to how they express their emotions to you depending on what type of relationship you both have.

Gameplay: Overall The gameplay is the one that stands out with the rest, your earlier decisions and strategy will reflect to how fast your civilization will grow, From using the boosts System to gain advantage from policies to researches in order to be on top.It all determines upon how you play the game and creating a formula about what you should do first and of course it’s still undetermined if you’ll get same results as barbarians will f*ck you up bigtime if you don’t eradicate those barbarian outposts ASAP.

Cons

Religion: Religion is an interesting feature in the game, It’s a good part of the game but at mid and late game it won’t really have much help, If you invested so much in religion at early games you might be lacking gold or even be left out on culture and science race.
I think the religion feature needs to be improved but I do love the idea. It just seems to not have a large impact over the game.

And lastly, my verdict. Civilization VI pushes you to think and really strategize upon the various aspects of the game and looking at every detail even from the smallest to the biggest detail that will play a large important in the end-game for example would be the envoys, you only get a number of envoys per turn and you most certainly can’t be a suzerain on all of the city states, You need to choose which one will fit in your gameplay based on their suzerain bonus and strategize with it . But technically all you have to do is survive until you get Nukes. And A-bomb those mofos that keeps bullying you and denounces you even if you try to please them and have a good relationship based on their likes and dislikes.

Also I can’t beat the hardest difficulty of the game it’s extremely hard. If you know how then give me some tips that maybe I am not aware of.

Score: 3.5/5
