The History of Gaming Consoles

The very first mass-produced home gaming console came in the form of the Magnavox Odyssey, released in 1972. Up until this time, gamers could only experience gaming by taking a trip down to their local arcade armed with a pocket full of spare coins.

Granted, the retro gaming graphics look almost laughable compared to Xbox or PS games available today, with small squares bouncing around the screen which required a lot of imagination to turn into a game theme. Overlays were used for creating gaming environments on the Magnavox Odyssey that fitted onto your TV screen.

Other gaming consoles began to be produced including the Ping-o-Tronic, Coleco Telstar, Radio Shack TV Scoreboard and many other classics.

The era of ‘Pong’ soon followed with a game called Pong brought out by Atari which was based on the tennis game originally on the Magnavox Odyssey on their Atari 2600. Magnavox tried to sue Atari in the courts over this game as they saw it as a blatant copy of their idea.

Octodad: Dadliest Catch Review

Octodad: Deadliest Catch has been around for a few years now, but it is still among my favorite indie games. The wonderful thing about indie games is that they can be about anything. They don’t need to have the requisite grizzled, macho hero or awkward love interest that triple-A games seem so attached to.

Indie games can be about little boys lost in dark, scary woods, or about sexually ambiguous robed figures running across a desert, or indeed about an octopus who has infiltrated society and spends his days hiding his true identity from his family.

After being successfully kickstarted, Octodad: Dadliest Catch was released on PS4 in April 2014 but the game is still very popular today. The protagonist is an octopus who has somehow found himself in a family with two children. It is essential that his loved ones do not find out that he is an octopus, so he has to function like a normal, human male.

However, every day is a huge challenge for poor old Octodad. With limbs designed for swimming rather than making coffee, even menial tasks are a massive struggle, and if he makes too much of a mess, his family will start to wonder why their father can’t open a window without getting stuck in the ceiling fan.

Hungry Shark Evolution – The Most Absorbing Game Ever?

Okay, so I recently downloaded Hungry Shark Evolution and within just a minute of the gameplay, I was hooked right in. This is the game I am going to spend time being addicted to for the next couple of weeks, so excuse me, folks!

First of all, I was worried if the game would take up too much space. I have a lot of other games on my phone and I am kind of hooked to all of them as well. But it did not. This Ubisoft game downloaded pretty quickly and installed quickly too. My initial experience was already good.

Not knowing anything about the game, I was sucked in just within a few seconds. The basic concept of the game is that you control a shark, or you are the shark, whatever! You make the shark move around the screen. All you have to do is touch the screen and drag your finger and the shark moves in that direction.

Why did everybody hate the Doom Multiplayer Beta?

It has been more than a decade since Bethesda has released the last game in the Doom franchise, and seeing how sci-fi FPS games are now one of the most popular genres played today (especially on the PC), Doom could not have a better time to re-emerge with a new and graphically/systematically upgraded game. But why did everybody hate the Doom Multiplayer Beta?

However once the multiplayer was released to the public as an open BETA, instead of a pleased and excited community the developers faced a massive mob of angry and bitter players. Some of their hate stretched to the point of absolute despise towards anyone who talked positively about the game or even showed clips of it in the background of a YouTube video and etc. So what went wrong?

Well… To start off, the angry mob comparison may have been slightly exaggerated, however the grand majority of people who played the Doom Multiplayer BETA did not claim to have had a good experience, and certain old fans of the franchise even appeared to be upset by what they witnessed as well as seriously worried about what the complete game design will be once the game is fully released.
