Personally, if your child is young and just beginning to look into gaming I would keep them away from any fighting games. Some of these games can include extremely foul language and scenes. It has shown that the more violent games can sometimes make your child more violent. Therefore, I believe it is important to keep them away from these games until they can understand the difference between gaming and reality. If your child is interested in this type of gaming some more appropriate fighting games for younger children include Fortnite and Minecraft. If you do allow your child to play Fortnite I would recommend them not using the sound when playing with other players online as some are older teens and adults who will use foul language. Also make sure you keep an eye on your child when they are playing as it is possible for them to still get bullied. There are plenty of games out there for younger children.

There are many different ways that gaming is helping children. People normally focus on the negative impacts of gaming. Today, we are going to look into some of the positive impacts gaming has on our children.

Firstly, gaming can help to broaden children’s creativity. Certain games encourage children to be creative. Making them wonder more about the world and have more questions answered.

Gaming can also help to build their confidence. It is a big, scary world out there for our children. Gaming is an excellent escape place for children. They can talk to other friends and help them to feel more confident in later life.

Finally, gaming can help them gain skills which they could use in later life. For example, some games offer coding lessons. This can prepare them to gain a career in coding in later life. This can be the fuel to start off their dream.

The answer is yes, gaming can be educational. One game which is an excellent example is Minecraft. In this article, we are going to look at how Minecraft is educational!

Firstly, Minecraft can help children with many skills. One of these being teamwork! They can build together and help each other with tasks. This game isn’t about fighting. It’s about building communities.
It teaches them about the value of items. For example, they can trade with villagers on the game. However, they will have to find a villager who has what they want. Then they will have to give up some of their resources for trade.
Finally, it helps with their patience. Things don’t just happen quickly. For example, if they plant seeds for food. They will have to wait for the crops to grow before they can harvest them.

So yes, games can be educational. Some of them help teach our children important life lessons.

No More Heroes creator Goichi Suda said if it wasn’t for the fans, the game wouldn’t be back, but we are set for a number 3 of this hugely popular title. Ass within the original No More Heroes, there’ll be plenty of motion controls and stunning scenery in an open world that well worth exploring. There’ll be a convoluted, borderline nonsensical plot — something about aliens and a city within the ocean this point around — and many of assassins to fight – but it’s not a game that needs a deeply interesting story. Fan-favourite characters like Sylvia and Kimmy Howell are going to be back, so that is certainly big news. All that, and Travis could be training a protege this time around, too. It’s filled with action. It’s fierce and fun, and we’re sure you’re going to love it. The release date is not confirmed as yet but we expect it to land by the end of 2020.

Ask any long-time hardcore gamer and watch them agree; some of the best games were made in the 80s through 90s. From Planescape: Torment to Donkey Kong and Sonic the Hedgehog –these vintage games remain an untouchable classic in the industry’s hall of fame. Unfortunately, fast-growing tech and state of the art gameplay has all but killed the option to play these games in their original form.

New consoles have also disbanded the use of cartridges many years ago; and continue to throw old tech out the window, leaving players forcibly upgrading to other alternatives. However, all is not lost.

Special Retro Game Systems

Behemoth game companies such as SEGA and Nintendo have totally discontinued the use of systems that process cartridges. Plus, since cartridges come with their own set of unique data, it’s pretty impossible to simply plug it into a port of a PC or laptop. However, some companies such as Analogue, Innex and Hyperkin have developed their own cartridge playing consolers that employ software emulation or hardware reading tech. The Analogue Super NT, for example, is a portable piece that allows you to play your favourite SNES wirelessly.

On a budget and can’t afford to purchase a new console, but already have an iPad? No worries, we’ve got you covered. Check out the two suggestions we think will help you have the ultimate gaming machine, other than having good games on there!

Some games are perfect for touch, while others…really work better with a controller. Thankfully, there are a few solid MFI gamepads made for iPhone and iPad that work with a ton of games in the App Store. Have a look around for the best-reviewed ones before purchasing.

You would probably use a gaming headset at your PC, and a nice set of speakers on your TV. So why play games with the small speakers on the edge of your iPhone or iPad? Using a good pair of headphones not only makes your games sound better but can actually help you figure out where sounds are coming from!

As I’m sure many teachers will tell you, gaming has a serious side and it is fast becoming a widely used, popular and interactive way for children to learn in classrooms today.

If we were to go back 40 or even 50 years, playing a game in a school lesson was unheard of. With the introduction of technology and the development of computers, kids are up to speed with the latest gadgets from a very young age. It’s almost scary to see how brilliant kids are at using technology, and this means gaming has come into play in teaching (excuse the pun), but thankfully this has been in a positive way. Making notes straight from a textbook doesn’t work for many children and let’s be fair, it never did! Playing games and getting kids to engage with the teacher and other pupils has brilliant effects, but teachers do of course have to control the fun.

Apparently, Sea of Thieves, which was scheduled to be launched sometime this year, has been shifted to early next year. The game will be available to play on Xbox and Windows PC. Alongside this announcement, Microsoft showed a glimpse of what the gamers should expect. The video gave a step by step action ranging from looting caves, fighting skeleton using pistols to escaping quickly without being noticed.

Teamwork is of the essence in this game. Each player has a specific role to play; one was responsible for carrying a treasure chest gathered underwater while others were responsible for providing security to the group. One character remained on the ship to help with ease escape and at the same ensure no attempt by another ship to steal their loot will succeed. The player can then decide to trade their treasure for money in small portions.

If you are interested in knowing more about what the game has to offer, you can watch its live streams on a mixer.

This upcoming brawler game can be played local or online, so it’s a good option if you’re more of an individual gamer, yet it’s great for the family too. With this title, you can enjoy a number of game modes, battle arenas and characters, whilst you’re also able to choose an ability and prove you’re the one Kirby to rule them all. This game will be out later this year and it’s packed with high-end cartoon visuals, with lots of modern colour and fast action, so it’s a very contemporary handheld game in that sense. With so many vintage style games being released this year, it’s nice to see a new cartoon game with stunning visuals, but this game is not entirely family friendly. It’s a brawler so you have to be quick and react fast to come out on top, but with a little time and practice, you’ll see your skills come to shine through, and we can only hope you become the king of all the characters!

If you’re from the 90s and miss everything about those younger years, don’t worry because Dragon Ball FighterZ is coming to PS4 on New Years Eve. This game is born from what makes the Dragon Ball TV series so loved and famous; spectacular fights with its all-powerful warriors. The game is very easy to learn and get used to, and you’ll be winning fights in no time, but opponents will of course get tougher, and there will be some neat tricks you need to learn to make it through each and every battle that comes your way. At times you will experience aerial combos, destructible stages and famous scenes from the classic 90s show, but more importantly you’ll fall back in love with the characters so many have forgotten, and you’ll relive some of your favourite childhood moments again. This fast paced game is also good for those who have never experienced Dragon Ball Z, so don’t be put off if you know absolutely nothing about it.
