mate-20-x




While the name itself is very hard to take seriously in every possible way, the upcoming Huawei Mate 20 X could both figuratively and literally be a game changing device. It has been a while since companies truly tested the old debate about "how big is too big," but the Mate 20 X is certainly asking that question! Featuring a mammoth 7.21" OLED display, this is not just a flagship device with all the bells and whistles, it brings something completely new to the plate too. Apparently, Huawei has developed this giant to cater to the needs of mobile gamers and while it's not out yet, it would be safe to say that this does look VERY promising. The OEM is even going to sell exclusive joysticks for the phone separately, similar to the Nintendo Switch console. To know what we are talking about, take a look at the most impressive specs below.


·        Kirin 980 SoC with graphene-based cooling system


·        7.21" 2244 x 1080 FHD+ OLED display (HDR) with a dew drop notch


·        5000mAh battery

·        24 MP f/2.0, 26mm (wide) selfie camera


·        Color options: Midnight Blue, Phantom Silver

About Google Stadia


On March 2019, Google announced its widely anticipated game streaming service, Google Stadia. The service will allow players to play triple-A gaming titles on multiple devices like smartphones, tablets, and PCs by paying a nominal subscription fee. It will stream the games from Google cloud servers in full HD and has the potential to stream 4K games at 60fps.


What's New?


Google Stadia will be playable on big screen TVs through Google's Chromecast Ultra dongle. Desktop, laptop, Pixel 3 smartphone, and tablet users will be able to access the games directly through the Chrome Browser.


Pricing


Google announced that Stadia will have two pricing models: the Stadia Base and the Stadia Pro.


Players opting for the Stadia Pro have to shell out $9.99 per month while it is free for Stadia Base. Players will need around 35Mbps (minimum) internet speed to avail the Stadia Pro.  For the Stadia Base, you will be able to access the service with speeds of minimum 5Mbps connection. The base version of the service will be capped at 1080p and stereo sound. The pro version will support up to 4K HDR support with 60fps and 5.1 surround sound.

microsoft

 

Microsoft has purchased gaming company Mojang, the creators of Minecraft, for the cool $2.5 billion. The company shares that its partnership with the game maker began when the two discussed the Xbox One version of the game.

 

Since Minecraft's launch in 2009, it has been downloaded by more than 100 million users. As Xbox boss Phil Spencer states, Microsoft will continue to make Minecraft available across non-PC and Xbox platforms, such as iOS, Android and PlayStation.

 

microsoft minecraft

 

 

"Minecraft quickly became the top online game on Xbox Live, with over two billion hours played on Xbox 360 in the last two years. That working relationship set the ground work for other opportunities," he added.

 

Minecraft creator Markus Notch Persson allegedly doesn't want to deal with such a large and global project that Minecraft has become for the past 5 years. That's one of the reasons he, as the majority stakeholder of the company, wanted to sell it. The rest of the co-makers of the game, Carl, and Jakob, are also leaving the company.

 

 


Fifa 15

 

EA has published it's latest Football game for soccer's fans, the company has just published the Android version of "FIFA 15 Ultimate Team".

fifa 15

 

The latest version of the evergreen football franchise has the usual improved graphics and updated rosters, and the Quick Simulation mode lets you drop into any match-up without dedicating yourself to a full season (the titular "Ultimate Team" mode), but it still relies on strategic substitutions when your under-powered players are lacking in a little IAP stamina.

 

fifa 15

 

FIFA 15 features "classic" controls with a new through pass maneuver or more casual controls that might make for a less cluttered touchscreen. This is also the first Android release to support hardware controls SHIELD or SHIELD Tablet owners, it might be worth a try just for that. The game also has weekly match-ups that correspond to any real FIFA games that are occurring.

 

The Game is available for Canada users only for now, and it will be Available worldwide very soon. The Game is FREE and you can download if from the Play Store link below.

Swing Copters

 

The ultra-popular time-wasting phenomenon Flappy Bird will soon have a successor. The upcoming title by the same game developer will be named "Swing Copters".

 

Swing Copters will feature similar gameplay as Flappy Bird, except it will reportedly be even more difficult. The key difference between the newcomer and its predecessor will be the direction of the action.

 

The propeller-headed main character of Swing Copter will be moving upwards and will try to avoid the obstacles with swinging motions. The little fella in Flappy Bird on the other hand, moves horizontally and tries to avoid obstacles by flying up and down. Check the Game Demo Video Below.

Limbo

 

Most gamers, even the ones that are only remotely interested in indie titles, have probably heard about "Limbo" by now the incredibly simplistic, yet elegantly crafted and enticing puzzle platformer that made ripples in the gaming community, back when it was first released in 2010. The first platform that Limbo was available on was Xbox 360 then spread to PS 3, PS Vita, PC, Mac, Linux, SteamOS, and iOS.

 

Unfortunately, there has been no Android version for all this time... well, until today, that is. Limbo is Now finally Available on the Google Play store with a price tag of $4.99.

 

Limbo

 

For those of you who are not familiar the game has the player control a boy who's, for some reason, descended into limbo, looking for his sister. How he does this, what happened to his sister, and why exactly in limbo, is up for interpretation. The game is presented in a black and white color theme, while all objects and characters in the game are portrayed as silhouettes. A play with focus on the objects creates a feeling of depth and a well-crafted soundtrack helps the mind fill the gaps.

It is no secret that the casino business has gone through a number of drastic changes in the last few years and all things suggest that there are still many more to come. Of course, most of these changes in the gambling world were brought on by the impact of technology. Instead of fighting against the tide, the gaming business has adapted itself to these changes as well as any other industry. Let us now take a closer look at some of the most important changes which are happening right now or will happen in the very near future.


Bitcoin is the Ideal Currency of the Gambler



If a player uses bitcoin to make bets online, he/she doesn't have to pay currency conversion charges. Also, since bitcoin is not connected to any central bank, the ever-changing world economy doesn't affect the digital currency in the same way that it affects other generally accepted currencies like the US dollar or the Euro. Bitcoin also keeps the players anonymous, secure and safe from any attempts at identity theft. The casinos that don't accept bitcoin yet will soon begin to welcome it in a few more years' time.


Traditional Casinos vs. Online Casinos


This age old debate of which is a better option is coming to an end with each passing year. Players can now simply go on Netbet and play with other players from around the world in a live action casino with a real dealer or choose to try out their luck at the virtual slot machines if they do not feel like socializing. Traditional establishments are starting to open up their own online casinos and live action casinos are blurring the line in between the two. In other words, technology is actually making the two natural enemies work together with each other in building a unified gaming empire for the future.


The Portable Medium



Apart from being the most used type of consumer technology in the world right now, smartphones have also added a new dimension to the gambling industry. In the beginning, you had to visit a physical casino to gamble, but that all changed with the arrival of the online betting sites. However, you still had to sit in front of a computer or a laptop in order to access the online options. Right now, gambling applications and support for mobile devices on all major gaming sites has ensured that players can gamble whenever they want. It doesn't matter if you are travelling, lying on your bed or even sitting on the toilet seat; if you want to gamble, you can do it from anywhere with your smartphone. In the coming years, the number of smartphone users will continue to grow globally and so will the number of online players.


Expectedly, more countries will open up to the business in the coming years, allowing online casinos to touch markets that have so far been shielded from the world of gambling by conservative governments. It will take time but it should happen eventually.



It seems like every year we hear that mobile gaming will take over all forms of games and will reign supreme. While this isn't likely to happen, one thing we do know though is that it fuels a lot of people's entertainment, makes huge levels of cash for the industry, and provides innovation that pushes games to new levels.


The rise of mobile gaming has been impressive to say the least. Ever since people played Snake on their old Nokia phones, the potential has been there for the handheld device to offer more to gamers. With the improvements of technology and the rise of both iOS and Android, the rise of the app and most importantly gaming apps have taken hold and we are in the age of mobile gaming.


Mobile gaming is now a billion-dollar industry, and has shaped a new model of the way people pay for games. There are a lot of games now that are "Freemium" games, allowing the player to download and play for free, before adding money into the game when they needed it. The key of course is that it is purely the gamers choice whether to add more money into the game with in-game transactions. The thing is though, this idea works.


If the game is good enough to hook the players, it seems that they are more than willing to make in-game purchases to add to the fun they are experiencing. Many in the industry are noticing the potential for profit here, and that in turn fuels the creation of better and more entertaining games that will in turn make more money that can then be put into the production and evolution of games.


This is what fuels gaming today, and the fact that mobile devices can also be used for both virtual and augmented reality show that these devices are still at the forefront of gaming innovation. Just looking at Pokémon Go as an example, you can see just where the technology in the phone is now taking the player, and that is into an even more mobile world.


Mobile gaming on devices has given the players unrestricted access to games while on the movie. Whether it is playing a game like Candy Crush Saga or one of its clones, or even playing roulette on a UK mobile casino while on their dinner breaks, the players are doing so on the movie. It is this flexibility in mobile gaming that is fueling the success of it, and changing the way we game.


While mobile gaming may not take over the world of gaming as we know it, it now has its fair share of the market, and is here to stay. Gaming is hugely popular now in all forms, that includes mobile gaming, and there is one thing for sure, this is a very good time to be a gamer, never have we had such a choice of ways to game as we do now.



Traditional gaming, also known as games played on a console, computer or TV, are still quite common today, though mobile gaming is fast taking over. Mobile gaming is on the rise simply because we already use our phones for everything nowadays. Mobile apps have changed the way we function in our everyday lives. From ordering food to shopping online to keeping a running grocery list to checking account balances. No matter what, there's an app for it! It's no different when it comes to gaming. According to Business Insider, the mobile gaming industry is projected to reach $52.5 billion and will make up 45 percent of the total worldwide gaming revenue. Here are the best mobile game apps for your Android phone in 2018, so that you too can take part in this rapidly growing way of gaming.

Roblox

 

Roblox is a massive multiplayer gaming platform, built by gamers, that allows users to design their games. For users of all ages, Roblox is sometimes compared to Minecraft because it is an app that hosts virtual world games constructed of Lego-like virtual blocks. Everything in Roblox is user-generated, and players can create a massive theme park, work in a pizzeria, feature in a fashion show, become a superhero or build a dream home and hang out with friends.

Though Super Mario Run has been out for iOS devices since last year, it just became available to Android users and is already one of the most popular Android games available.


mobile-games-console


An article by USAToday.com revealed that the mobile games industry could be worth $100 billion by 2021. Mobile games are expected to make more than 70% of all revenue made from mobile apps, and as there are more than one billion owners of smartphones and tablets, that's a huge figure.

 

 

The potential amount of money that could be made from mobile gaming has led some of the biggest game developers to put more resources into mobile. Companies like Blizzard, Epic Games and LeoVegas may be known for console and PC gaming, but these brands are all trying to grow their fanbases on mobile as the industry just keeps growing.

 

App and Browser Versions

 

Most people on mobile devices will want to download their mobile games, but for people who have weak internet connections or don't have much room on their phones, that won't be an option. The casino review site, Bonus.ca, says that online casinos have learned that and so they allow players to access games such as slots, blackjack, and roulette, through their mobile browsers. Players don't need to download an app to gamble on their phone as many casino sites only ask people to create an account to start playing. 

 

For larger games with more textures, files, and game modes, being compatible with browsers just won't be possible. However, for those game developers who can make their games work on browsers, they can appeal to many more mobile gamers. 

 

Support for Cross-Play

 

 

Many developers, such as Epic Games, the creator of Fortnite, got started first on PCs and consoles. This doesn't mean that they treat mobile gamers differently, though, and the company has tried to bring all of its players together by using something called cross-play.

 

Cross-play, explains Forbes.com, allows players to compete against each other whether they are playing Fortnite on iOS, Android, PC, PS4, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch. Switch and mobile users will be grouped together, but you can still play together across platforms if you are in a team. As more developers release their games on all platforms, expect cross-play to become a regular thing. 

 

Releasing Smaller Games

 

 

By not releasing a mobile game, companies are potentially failing to appeal to a huge number of players. However, that doesn't mean that it is incredibly easy to just bring a game over to mobile devices. Some games were created for PC and controller inputs, or they are large games that mobile devices wouldn't have room for.

 

Some game developers, such as Blizzard, have tried to find a fix for this. An article from IGN.com explains that the company will be releasing a mobile game called Diablo Immortal, which will have some of the gameplay from its popular dungeon-crawling RPG series. This allows Blizzard to appeal to mobile gamers without trying to fit such a large game onto smaller screens.

 

As more game developers rush to the gold in the mobile games industry, things are becoming more competitive. It will be much more difficult for other developers to find success, which is why these companies are trying to get into the industry now.
