This week’s games
This week is a good time to look at the new games and their features.
- [Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – Breath of the Wild](https://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/306882/Xenoblade_Chronicles_2_Breath_of_the_Wild_.php) has been released for Nintendo Switch, $59.99, rated Teen (T). This is a role-playing game (RPG) in which players explore an open world and fight using swords or bows & arrows; characters can also use magic spells as weapons against enemies with special abilities as well as traditional weapons such as axes or spears. Players can customize their character’s appearance by crafting new equipment from materials found throughout the game world; they may also upgrade existing items by combining them together in order to create stronger ones that offer more defense against enemies’ attacks while reducing damage taken on each turn during battle sequences when facing groups of foes at once rather than just one at a time or individually without having to face multiple enemies simultaneously.”
A brief history of video games
In the beginning, there was Pac-Man. The first video game ever created was a simple arcade game with a black background and white dots moving around on it. It was called Space War! The next breakthrough came in 1972 when an engineer named Ralph Baer invented his own version of Pong. This game featured two paddles at either end of an electronic screen with lines going across it to form a rectangle. The idea behind this game was that you had to hit these lines as they went by (like tennis), but instead of balls flying through air, they moved back and forth along lines displayed on your screen. Baer’s invention opened up a whole new world of possibilities for gaming technology: now there were many more ways to play games without having physical objects in front of you!
The best and the worst video game mascots ever
Many of the best video game franchises have mascots, and we’re going to look at some of the best and worst. Mario is a classic example of a great mascot character. He’s been around for decades, he has his own line of games, cartoons, comics and even movies! Sonic is another well-known mascot character. Crash Bandicoot is also a good example because he was in lots of different games over several years. Pac-Man isn’t as well known these days but he was once one of the main stars in gaming history! Tetris also has its own iconic mascot – it’s a piece of falling brick shaped like a tall rectangle that you can move around with your controller or keyboard arrow keys (or mouse). Lara Croft is another famous icon from Tomb Raider who has appeared in many computer games over the years since her first appearance on PlayStation back in 1996 (Tomb Raider 1). Master Chief is one example too – he’s actually called John 117 which makes him sound even more boring than just plain old Master Chief – but then again maybe that’s why people love him so much because if anyone knows anything about military operations then surely it would be someone who goes by their military name instead? Link probably needs no introduction here either as everyone knows what an awesome character he makes up both outside his adventures within other popular titles such as Zelda series where most people get acquainted with him first before branching out into other areas such as Super Smash Bros., Pokemon X&Y etc…

We tried out the new Oculus Rift DK 2, and here’s what we thought.
The Oculus Rift DK 2 is the second version of the Oculus Rift headset, which was first released on Kickstarter. The DK 1 was a prototype that allowed developers to get a feel for their product and how it would work, but it wasn’t ready for consumers to use. It had some serious issues with motion sickness and latency that made it difficult to play games in VR using the device. This new version has improved displays, positional tracking and other features that make it more comfortable to wear while playing games or watching movies.
The experience of wearing the headset is similar to what you might expect if you’ve ever used Google Cardboard or Samsung Gear VR devices: you strap on your headband with lenses in front of your eyes; then put on a pair of headphones; then adjust straps around your head so everything stays in place as you move around (or doesn’t fall off). You can see images from whatever screen(s) are connected via HDMI cable(s), but since there’s no separate speaker system like there would be with speakers/headphones plugged into an external monitor/TV set-up, sound comes through your computer speakers instead—so if those aren’t positioned well then things could get muddy fast when trying to figure out where objects are located within virtual environments!
How to take your gaming habit to the next level.
If you want to take your gaming habit to the next level, there are many ways to do so.
- You can enter a tournament. The world of eSports is growing rapidly and all sorts of video games are played competitively now. If you’re good enough, it’s not hard to get noticed by professional teams or even make some money playing video games for fun and profit. Be sure to have a backup plan in case things don’t work out though!
- You could get a job as a game tester. It may sound like an odd way of taking your gaming habit up another notch, but if you already play lots of video games anyway then why not? Game testers usually get paid pretty well and they get free beta copies too! All in all this could be the perfect opportunity for someone who loves playing video games with no end date in sight…
- Practice every day (and encourage others). If you’re serious about making it big as a gamer or just improving at your favorite titles then practice makes perfect—and who doesn’t love perfection? Nothing worth doing comes easy though so keep at it until everything becomes second nature and feels effortless…then go back again tomorrow morning because nothing stays that way forever anyway!
There are amazing games out there, and they can be fun for the whole family.
There are amazing games out there, and they can be fun for the whole family. Here are some of the benefits:
- Video games have become a social phenomenon. Millions of people enjoy playing video games online, or offline with friends and family members. There is no age limit, as many video games appeal to children as young as five years old.
- Playing video games can improve your brain power by training it to more rapidly process information, develop problem-solving skills, improve memory recall and spatial reasoning ability. It also increases eye-hand coordination and fine motor skills (the ability to control small muscles). All this makes you smarter at everything else you do!
- Playing video game together with your kids can help them learn teamwork while also having fun together in front of a screen – something that’s hard to come by these days!
