You’ve heard about this new big game that everyone is talking about where you can explore planets, gather minerals and collect information about undiscovered species.
Well, the game is as amazing as it sounds and players are still being fascinated with how much the game has to offer. If you are already playing this game, then you know all these things but have you figured out everything there is to figure out in No Man’s Sky?
Mining and Crafting.
If you thought that No Man’s Sky would be all about exploring the universe, enjoying in the calming sight of a peaceful planet from its stratosphere or collecting data about new species you were mistaken. There is a lot of mining as well. Every planet has minerals and natural goods, and your job is to collect them if you want to upgrade you equipment and gear.
You will need resources to upgrade your ship, exosuit, your gun that acts as a multi-tool device, or to create various products. As you progress your ship will be faster, and you’ll generally become better equipped. This will improve your gameplay as you will fly faster and discover planets and species with ease.
Take care of your Exosuit.
Spending time on planets can make you lose track of time. Knowing this you need to make sure that you are constantly upgrading two things on you exosuit. Life Support and Hazard protection. To spend points on either of these upgrades you will need resources. Life support gives you more time to explore planets as you need oxygen to survive and most planets aren’t oxygen based.
Another thing to keep in mind is hazard protection that lets you explore more volatile planets. It depletes every time you put your foot on planets with a hostile environment. So be prepared and pay attention to your exosuit parameters and functionality to spend more time on planets.
Field upgrades and Shelters.
While wandering on a planet and exploring its surface, you may have noticed a red vertical beam that reaches for the sky. This is a place of interest and there might well be shelter there. In shelters, you will recover your hazard protection and find upgrades for your suit. So make sure that you check these lasers.
Not every shelter contains an upgrade for your suit, but your depleted hazard protection will be recharged in mere seconds and that much better than going back to the ship. Upgrading your suit by collecting pieces of equipment in these “Drop Pods” will make just about anything easier. Keep your eyes open for these useful points of interest and get a chance to find unique pieces of equipment and become a better explorer.
Since the release of No Man’s Sky players interacted with one another, trading items and gear. You will always have items to trade as every planet is unique and artifacts are scattered through the galaxy.
One of the perks video games offer us is the rush and the adrenaline we get when we play. Exciting levels, challenging enemies, thrilling sequences are all the things we love and crave.
This fact is best seen playing the first person shooters which arguably bring the best the games have to offer when it comes to experience and excitement. The Division
Coming up on all platforms at the same time, The Division is definitively one of the most anticipated titles this year! Amazing graphics shown in the early access videos promises a top-notch experience, and the gameplay was a thing we never doubted when this series is in question.
The new sequel to the Tom Clancy saga brings us into a new environment, something we might not have seen in this franchise. Also, there seem to be some improvements to the game mechanics as well, making it even more enjoyable. All will be seen as soon as The Division hits the shelves this year!
Picking up on the popularity of the Blizzard name brand, Overwatch was a hit since the first time it was announced. A lot of fans picked up the wind and made it global and the first reviews made it flat out explode. As a team shooter, Overwatch represents an epic effort to dominate this genre, and it seems the plan is working perfectly.
Colorful players and environment, a lot of different classes and a tactical approach to the game makes this shooter stand out and become an instant hit in the online gaming community.
Doom Since the first Doom hit us over two decades ago and showed us what the first person shooter could be, the world has never been the same. The newest Doom title seems to be understanding and using this potential to create an epic shooter experience true to the original and give us the game we all wanted all along. After the weak game that mostly made the average mark, the new Doom pics up the pace with the fast-running shooter guaranteed to give you chills and lots of fun.
Another awesome warfare simulation that seems to get us some new options we haven’t had a chance to see before. This multiplayer shows fantastic options for a shooter that seems almost too real.
You can have an impact on the object around you; there are vehicles included, making it that much more fun and the coop mode is out of this world.
The game features different tactical situations with an accent on the tactical and cooperative elements while you complete various missions and assignments. There are also several different modes so you can play as an assault trooper, sniper, defender and many other roles.
The selling point of this game is surely the creative element where you can build, destroy and interact with everything around you to help your mission. The tests seem very interesting so you should definitively check it out.
So, let’s talk about this, should people who play games on their mobile phones be called gamers?
What really defines a gamer?
This term is relatively new, and it started appearing more frequently with the rise of PvP games (player vs. player), but who really can call themselves gamers?
If you ask me it’s not about whether the game is competitive or just fun, it’s more about how much you enjoy it and how much time you spend playing it.
Before mobile phones became so powerful, as they are today, the best game you could’ve played was Snake on Nokia, but things change.
Phones today are more advanced than the computers which were used to send people to the moon. Today we can play all kinds of games on our mobile phones without any problems.
Even Hearthstone, one of Blizzards own, can be played on a mobile phone. So why would you call a person who plays Hearthstone on a PC a gamer and not a person who plays it on their phone?
As I’ve stated above, it’s about how much you enjoy the game and how much time you spend playing it is what defines you as a gamer.
Mobile phones are now strong enough to allow us to play games which are time-consuming and engaging like Clash of Clans, Dominations, Pokemon Go, Game of War and so on.
Dominations, for example, is now more advanced than most games played on a PC ten years ago.
I will briefly describe what this game is about and how many content it has and after that you can answer the question in the title yourself.
This game lets you advance through the ages, from the dawn of time to the Global Age. It plans on releasing even more content in the next couple of years.
Each age is very historically accurate and in order to advance from one age to another you have to spend quite a lot of time building, hunting and gathering or waging war.
You can choose to be one of eight nations, and each nation has different perks.
In order to have a strong nation, you have to advance in economy, military, sustainability. If you want to be among the very best players, you would have to think very hard on which types of troops you want to send into war and how to control them during an attack. There is more than one aspect of waging war, it’s not all about the offense, if you want to be the best, you will have to create a strong defense as well.
Furthermore, this game allows you to create or join a guild in which players help one another or go to war together against another guild.
The time you would need to reach the Global Age from the dawn of time is well over six months of gameplay, so tell me, should people who play games on their phones be called gamers?
