At Home or On the Go: Which Gaming Style is Most Popular?

At Home or On-The-Go: Which Gaming Style is The Most Popular? According to mygaming.com, an online video gaming magazine, more than 1.8 billion people play video games across the world. Considering that the current global population is around 7 billion, that comes to approximately one in every four people who play at least one video game every month. So, the big question is – how many people play at home and how many play on-the-go? Would the average game prefer to play the powerful empire in Final Fantasy XV at home or on-the-go? Frankly speaking, this isn’t very easy to tell. The above report shows that gamers use a variety of devices. In fact, a majority play games on multiple devices. For instance, it isn’t uncommon to find a gamer playing Lord of the Rings on PC and later pl

How DDoS Attacks Impact Gamers

Ever since the infamous DDoS Attack on Sony's Playstation Network back in 2011, the gaming industry has seen a sharp increase in DDoS Attacks including but not limited to attacks on Warcraft, League of Legends, Xbox, Nintendo, Microsoft, and many more. Game servers need to give special consideration when it comes to implementing DDoS protection. A DDoS Attack or Distributed Denial of Service Attack, is a strategy which attempts to shut down a network by flooding it with traffic. The traffic often comes from a group of systems which has been infected with a virus or trojan. These attacks typically happen due to the gaming server having outdated, misconfigured, or conflicting security settings which the hackers can then exploit to execute their attacks. Everyday more than 150 million p

ASUS ROG Strix – Asus – ROG GL502VT 15.6″ Laptop – My New Gaming Laptop and My Recent Experience at Best Buy

Please Note: This is not a sponsored post. I am not being compensated by Best Buy to write this. I did receive an email from Best Buy wanting me to complete a survey (for a chance to win a gift card) regarding my recent purchase. But then I thought, the comments I made in the survey, might make for a good Blog Post for my readers here, especially if supplemented with some info about the Laptop itself. It's tax refund time. Like most Americans, instead of saving, investing, or putting this money to good use, it's time to go have FUN! (yes, I know, not smart or responsible of me lol.) My last laptop was purchased at Sam's Club for around $750 back in 2013. It was just a "mid-range" "budget" laptop. In no way was it a "gaming" laptop, except that I researched and selected a model with a de

Best Laptops for PC Gamers That Won’t Drain Your Bank Account!

Editor's Note: Today's Guest Post comes from one of our readers, Marie Miguel, who shares with us some awesome prices for "gaming" laptops. Not all of the laptops on her list are suitable for "Core" gamers because some of them have intel integrated graphics cards - however, quite a few on her list do have Nvidia or AMD dedicated graphic cards - and all of them on the list would be suitable for casual gamers who enjoy indie or retro games. Check out her suggestions below, and leave a comment about your gaming rig - or about other great deals for affordable gaming laptops - in our comments section below. If you’re a PC gamer like I am, you want the highest quality computer you can find. If you’re also poor like I am, that $2,700 laptop that you’ve been dreaming of is most likely not going t

Countdown to Black Friday with New Deals Every Day on Amazon

Amazon just launched their Black Friday Pre-sale event. You can check back every day for new items at http://amazon.com/Black-Friday/... Already they are offering up some pretty sweet deals for geeks and gamers. I recommend bookmarking and checking back as often as possible. I'm hoping for a PS4 Bundle or Console to go on sale. I have enough already to purchase, but since it is that time of year, saving some money never hurts, and I've waited this long already to get myself the newest consoles, so might as well hang in there a few more weeks and see what happens! Last year, amazon had amazing black friday and cyber monday exclusive gaming bundles for all three major game systems including Xbone, PS4, and WiiU. This year the savings should be even greater since the technology continue

Talos Principle Game Review

Title: Talos Principle Release Date: 2014 Genre: Puzzle Solving Developer: Croteam Publisher: Devolver Digital Platform: PC, Mac, or Linux, also available on PS4 and Android Where to Buy:   Geeky: 5/5  Sweetie: 4/5  Concept: 8/10 Many people have compared this game to Myst, but not me. In my opinion, this game is much closer to Portal than it will ever be to Myst. The nature of the puzzles, at least in the first many, many hours of the game bears a striking resemblance to the gameplay in Portal. It's also these early hours in which I feel the game begins to fall apart, because the puzzles become so much the "same" throughout the first several "worlds" that you explore. However, looking past the often tedious gameplay, this game has a truly amazing story, especially

Humble Narrative Bundle Features Great Games For Girls with Emphasis on Story and Branching Plots

This week's humble bundle is a great one. I already had many of the games but I picked it up because Shadowrun Hong Kong looked interesting to me - and 80 Days was a game I was really excited about when it first came out for mobile devices, and I'm looking forward to playing it on the PC. I already gave away a copy of Broken Age on my blog here a few months back and gave it a full review, and I gifted the copy in this humble bundle to one of my online friends. I have a lot more duplicate keys, both from this bundle and others, so I may try hosting another give away in a few weeks. Read Only Memories is an excellent indie visual novel game which I already have, so I will probably try to rehome that game first. Maybe this weekend :) *hint: check back to this blog throughout June for steam ke
