Failed Brother of Minecraft: Scrolls

Mojang, the studio who was valued at $2.5 billion dollars by Microsoft in 2015, the studio who is responsible for sweeping hit Minecraft, which has shipped over 70 million copies is also responsible for another game. That game is Scrolls, one that Mojang would likely rather forget.

The lost brother of Minecraft, Scrolls could not have had a more conventional start to life than its big brother. It was designed with a specific plan in mind, for a specific market, by a well-funded development studio and with an already eager audience awaiting any chance to play it. Minecraft lacked all of these advantages. So why was Scrolls such a failure?

Announced in early March of 2011, Scrolls was described by the creative minds of Mojang as a blend of ‘collectible card games‘ and ‘traditional board games‘, something that they saw as missing from the market. In early December of 2014 it left the Beta development phase, and was officially released. Then only six months later in 2015, Mojang announced defeat. They revealed that active development on Scrolls would be ceased, and that they could not guarantee that the servers would run past July, 2016.

So where did Mojang go wrong? On the surface

Importance of Educational Video Games In A Child’s Life

The little kids enjoy long vacations from their schools at different times of the year, according to the adverse climactic conditions in the various continents. But the parents are always fretting over how to utilize this long break from the strict school curriculum in the most effective way for their little ones. The best way to make your toddler’s summer vacation worthwhile is by gifting him/her a series of educational video games as they will provide your child a platform to experiment, to explore, to make mistakes and to learn, while having fun.

An educational video game intentionally merges gaming with an educational software in the most entertaining fashion. Gamification of education has garnered huge interest among the educators and is also capturing a permanent position in the school curriculum, as it serves as an effective teaching-aid in making students understand the nitty-gritty of Math, English vocabulary, Geography, History, Political Science, General Knowledge, along with Computer programming, a recent addition to the school syllabi.

If educational video games are well executed, they can provide a strong framework for inquiry and project-based learning, says Alan Gershenfeld, co-founder and president of E-Line Media, a publisher of computer and video games and a Founding

Five Real Life Lessons I Learned From Childhood Video Games

1.) Resource Allocation

Video Game Example: Resident Evil

Resident Evil, especially the first three of the series, taught me that sometimes it’s best to avoid a situation where it could cost you everything in order to reserve what little ammunition you have. I remember getting close to the end of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis with absolutely zero ammunition and already injured. As soon as I would try to run for it, I’d die. Being the derpy 12-year-old I was, I of course didn’t have multiple save points so had to restart… the entire game. I learned quickly to only use what I desperately needed and to save the rest.

Being an, ahem, financially strapped college student, I use this same principle when it comes to money. If I only have a limited cash flow, I know to only use that money in times of urgent need and in order of importance. The priority, especially as an upperclassman, went a little something like: Beer, Coffee, Bills, School-related purchases, and lastly food.

Okay, so maybe that lesson wasn’t quite as well-learned.

2.) Problem Solving

Video Game Example: Lemmings

I vividly recall playing this game on my Sega Genesis and when those little guys with green hair would start falling

Future of Gaming – Virtual Reality and Other Trends

With the advancement in technology, it’s not very difficult to realize what the future of gaming is. In the past few decades, gaming has reached a whole new level. Starting from 2D games, today our video games are getting closer to reality. And video game consoles are focusing on that.

With that idea, comes virtual reality devices like Occulus Rift and Project Morpheus. Occulus Rift is owned by Facebook while Project Morpheus is owned by Sony. These devices are targeting to give users the premium experience of gaming by allowing users to interact all around them in the gaming world. You can experience flying, walking, dancing, shooting like never before, in virtual reality of course.

Some Tips And Tricks To Save Money On Your PSN Card Purchases

As an avid PS gamer, you are probably always up-to-date on the latest games released and the ones that have yet to be released. And since it seems that there’s a new PS game every month, buying them will definitely eat a chunk of your money, even if you allot some cash for this endeavor.

Aside from cash, you can also choose to use your credit card to purchase PS games and other apps. Unfortunately, you will incur some charges with this option. And there is always that risk that your sensitive banking information can fall into the hands of unscrupulous hackers.

If you can’t resist the temptation of buying the latest releases of PlayStation but don’t want to use your credit card and still want to save some money in the process, consider getting a PSN card. A PSN card contains a code that you can use to buy items from the PlayStation Store using any of the suitable devices.

One of the advantages this card offers is that it allows PS users to unlink their credit card from the PlayStation store and still buy or download games, movies, and other apps they are interested in. Also, with this card, you can

The Virtual Reality Rise?

Virtual reality, the idealised next step in both gaming and simulations. With the rise of Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Sony’s Project Morpheus and the recent OnePlus Cardboard virtual reality is beginning to find a place in the consumer household, rather than with only arcades and technology enthusiasts.

The question is, and will be whether virtual reality is here to stay and how will it affect the current gaming market. TMR, a market intelligence company has released a report estimating that the United States virtual reality market was worth US $466.6 million in 2012. With anticipated growth to reach US $5.8 billion dollars by 2019.

Such massive market potential is likely the driving force behind the broad range of companies jumping on the VR scene. Everyone from Sony to Valve are currently developing or have released early products, such a range of heavy hitting gaming companies is a sign that virtual reality has a place. Whilst this anticipated growth is impressive, it remains to be seen if this new technology will be purely a passing fad or a long-term gaming option.

According to this report the constant increase in technology, such as 3D effects and motion tracking are pushing the rise of virtual

How Music Affects The Way We Experience Video Games

Video game music can be the best part of a game. It’s one of the prime components to the aesthetics of a game and can really contribute to the soul’s entirety. A game’s music is the foundation for the tone, having as much (if not more) of an impact on the atmosphere than the visuals. This being said, the music can indicate what kind of game you’ll think it’s going to be.

If the music is happy or campy, then you might get the sense that the game is supposed to be light-hearted and joyful, just there for you to have a good time. If the music is slow, solemn, or dark, you might catch the vibe that you’re getting into something serious, with an oppressive atmosphere. If the music to a game doesn’t fit, it can all just make the game feel off. It might not take away from the game, but there is always the possibility.

Chip-tune is easy to replicate via humming, and if a piece is catchy it’s also easy to replicate by humming. If you can hum it enough, it tends to become memorable.

Some ind games don’t require music, requiring only sound effects, miscellaneous noises, and maybe

Multiple Games And Multiple Mash-Ups

Mario has become a global icon to the likes of Mickey Mouse. This is no lucky shot though because to this day Mario is always a top contender for a game of the year award on any dedicated video game website. Over the years, unlike his competitors (Sonic, Toe Jam & Earl, and Boogerman) he was able to evolve through the years. In many ways Mario is Nintendo spanning across hundreds of games, dozens of genres, and selling over a billion of copies worldwide. Interestingly enough the top ten rated video games include Mario three times, not including the originals when released.

That is not Nintendo’s only celebrating mascot, much like Disney, Nintendo thrives on their variety of characters. They have Link a sword wielding hero from “The Legend of Zelda” series, Star Fox a brave space pilot from the “Star Fox” series, Samus an alien fighter from the Metroid Prime series, Donkey Kong a giant ape from the Donkey Kong series, and many more. It is insane how many characters that Nintendo does own and to this day they are still creating more. All of these characters have been in multiple games and multiple mash-ups that show them competing with

Gaming Has a Positive Side

Video games can be the best gifts for kids but gradually parents might regret having ever introduced them to the kids. However, the worldwide popularity of gaming has come up as the living proof how attractive it is for gamers across the globe. Gaming may have a number of baneful influences, but its positives cannot be ignored too because it brings great value for the human race as a whole. They are much more than mere toys, if you start counting the advantages of gaming.

Here are some positive aspects of gaming:

1. As people get into gaming, they learn a lot about the use of IT, such as downloading files, taking screen shots, uploading information and also sharing it with others. They come in touch with other gamers around the world and share knowledge and experiences with them, thus learning more and having fun.

2. Gaming enables people develop their skills and ability to make optimal use of gaming resources. They learn to manage resources and make the right use of equipment, develop theories and models and also design strategies, all of which is done while paying games.

3. When people play games, they develop a thirst for knowledge and want to take

How To Play Video Games

The obvious answer is no, you shouldn’t, but at the same time it does raise questions about what we are doing as a society and what we are missing out on. Instead of going and achieving dreams and accomplishing goals we are sitting in front of a YouTube screen watching others enjoy themselves. A good example of this is a YouTube star that goes by the name of PewDiePie. PewDiePie is famous for his videos where he will play video games and make comments about them.

Sounds like a fun little hobby, but for him it is a full-time job where he raked in over $7 million dollars in 2014 himself and at one point was purchased by Disney. Now what does that say about a society when instead of playing video games we now watch other people have fun playing them. It is odd that we have the need to watch someone accomplish their goals or dreams and never actually accomplish any of ours. Another good example is how important celebrity gossip has become in our society (An easy pun on this article). Of course you must have heard of the Kardashians, or maybe a hundred other celebrities who you
