Khalid Hart's insight:

Unreal Engine is a tool that was used with certain game. But now its being released under a subscription similar to Norton.  That means PC gamers can now use the Unreal Engine with any game other than a shooters.

GAME ON - Facebook Becomes A Gamer [Is This FB Idea GOOD or BAD? Leave A Comment]

GAME ON - Facebook Becomes A Gamer [Is This FB Idea GOOD or BAD? Leave A Comment] | Current Event | Scoop.it
After years of being strictly a platform for gaming companies to distribute and promote their titles, Facebook on Tuesday unveiled its new mobile games publishing initiative, aiming to back a select handful of gaming outfits to ...

Khalid Hart's insight:

Facebook has really turned its tide as far as usage goes.  I rarely if ever see a status anymore. These days all I see is pictures from some page I liked back in 2010 and then multiple candy crush saga invites.  I used to play Mafia Wars until I realized that it's a never ending game. Someone told me they surpassed rank level 999 and was still ascending.  Simply put Facebook has become its own unofficial console. I say that because there are plenty of games to choose from not to mention you can also tie in your mobile device games to Facebook.

Facebook As Partner
Wow, this move by Facebook in interesting and a balloon filled with interesting ideas and notions. Facebook is setting up to do more than simply host games. Facebook will take a cut of game revenue in order to help facilitate product acceptance in ways only it can (tap that amazing database for "like me" gamers).

There is talk that Facebook's real revenue comes from the information they've managed to gather on a billion people. This move suggests a way for Facebook to make money from its information while helping nascent game companies get a leg up. Sounds like a win-win to me.

ShSmashing those sales projections


Via theoldschoolgamevault
Khalid Hart's insight:

Shout out to Sony for going above and beyond their sales projections in the opening months of the PS4 release.  Unlike Microsoft who has had to pay to get their sales, Sony has only advertised their product, set a fair price, and didn't change anything about the console.

9 reasons why Flappy Bird has become the latest viral gaming hit ...

9 reasons why Flappy Bird has become the latest viral gaming hit ... | Current Event | Scoop.it
Flappy Bird has taken over the No. 1 spot for free games on the iOS and Google Play app stores in the past week. It's a simple game in terms of graphics, but it has very difficult gameplay. And that has made people play it over ...
Khalid Hart's insight:

Flappy Bird is a free mobile game for the iPhone and Android devices.  Survival is the name of the game.  All you have to do is not hit the green pipes or the ground.  Sounds easy, doesn't it?  Well it's not because if you touch one thing its game over.  The reason why it has essentially dominated the app market is because of its surprising difficulty, and that's the reason why people play it over and over.

Once seen as a 'console killer,' Apple's App Store now overrun with gaming garbage

Once seen as a 'console killer,' Apple's App Store now overrun with gaming garbage | Current Event | Scoop.it

When critics and analysts discuss the death of console gaming, they often hold up the iPhone as the culprit. Mobile gaming is destined to replace expensive home consoles once and for all, they say,...


Via Gaming Box
Khalid Hart's insight:

If you play games on your iPhone or Android like me then you know the struggle of finding a good game to play on the go.  The reason why its such a struggle is because there are so many clones.  For example, since the late hit Flappy Bird was taken down there are now numerous free ripoffs of the original.  They just change the name add the objective of collecting coins and that's it.  They even use the same damn bird as the original.  But that's just one isolated example.  If you want a good mobile game you either have to pay for it or it has to be a freebie from a reputable gaming company.

Cloud streaming has shown a lot of recent success with games such as GTA V.

Via Thomas Faltin
Khalid Hart's insight:

Cloud gaming is the future of the gaming industry. Cloud gaming is when a game is downloaded digitally and stored on your console.  That means no more waiting in lines to get the game you want,  and no more physical discs. Now it hasn't taken over the industry yet but it is very popular with a lot of developers at the moment.

Khalid Hart's insight:

Microsoft paid off a handful of Youtubers to sprout out false opinions about which console they like best.  This just goes to show you how desperate Microsoft is when it comes to the console war.  News of this broke when someone violated their contract will Microsoft, which stated not to say anything to anyone about it.
