Youtube is launching an app and website to show game related videos and streams. Every video game will have its own page where streams and latest footage will be highlighted. This coming right after YouTube finished major updates to Hangouts on Air
Can't wait for the Oculus rift to be affordable, and always dreamed of playing those driving/flying simulators in VR? Here's a promising looking app. You've probably heard of the Google Cardboard DIY Virtual reality, which only needs a smartphone and a cardboard headset. Check out Trinus Gyre, an app you can try for free now!
There's nothing quite like the Alienware Alpha. For just $500, it's a competent Windows gaming PC. But it should have been the flagship Steam Machine. The Alpha was designed to be a Linux game console with a gamepad good enough to replace a mouse and keyboard. As easy to use as PlayStation or Xbox, but with more games. That didn't happen. So I set out to fix it.
This is the Anvil Industries' Carrack, a 403-foot (123-meter) ship and a maximum crew of five. It is not real, but it feels real because every detail in its interior has been designed as if it were a real vessel. It's one of the ships from Chris Roberts' Star Citizenpersistent alternative universe, where I'm sure I will get lost forever.
Notch and the two other co-founders are set to leave as part of the deal that focuses on mega-hit Minecraft. An investor release claims Microsoft expects to break even on the acquisition by the end of June 2015.
Coowon browser is a chrome based browser, advertised as the best game browser (for browser games, of course).
The main feature here is the gamepad controls. Which I found works with very few games. The feature to speed up games could come in handy. The macro plugin similar to imacros for Firefox and Chrome, to record and play back a sequence of mouse clicks - making bots, in other words. You can login to multiple accounts, without having to open incognito window, with the 'multiple login' feature. Also has enhanced functionalities such as mouse-gesture, drag to go etc.
It's not really there yet as far as a gaming browser, with gamepad controls . Some custom picked cowoon extensions help with some of the community favorite games controls.
However, I like the floating window feature, just to browse youtube videos etc. while working in chrome. I use the little Cowoon window that can change transparency, just to watch and control some youtube playlists in a small, floating window. I'm sure you could add some extensions to Chrome itself to accomplish the same thing.
With Blizzard currently focusing all of its real-time strategy mojo on the StarCraftseries, it may be a very long time before we see a real Warcraft IV. In the meantime, modders have us covered: Warcraft: Alliance and Horde takes the sci-fi StarCraft IIand replaces everything with the characters, setting, and lore of the Warcraftseries.
Originally launched in September of 2013, the mod’s creator recently launched version 2.0, adding two new playable factions as well as a slew of tweaks and improvements.
Video games are often used as a learning tool, but most educational games focus on word memorization or the magic of math. However, many game theorists and economists are beginning to realize that video games have something more significant to teach us about the function of our societies, governments, and economies. In 2001, economist Edward Castranova wrote a groundbreaking paper about the economy of EverQuest. In his paper, Castranova revealed that EverQuest’s currency was more valuable than the Japanese Yen, and that the game’s gross national product was actually bigger than that of China or India. Castranova is now a telecommunications professor at Indiana University Bloomington and is currently working on a book about evolutionary game theory and how virtual economies are drastically influencing our own.
How far away are we from making believable alternate realities that could have a person fooled?
We can emulate walking, with a treadmill like Virtuix Omni. We can get a pretty realistic visual experience with the Oculus Rift.
It will get pretty clunky, adding more of these gadgets (what about gesture gloves, to feel stuff, or maybe add the kinect into the mix). Maybe some of these future/developing gadgets to read your mind, might make the controls a bit easier?
