How to not get infected by a computer virus or other type of malware

September 13, 2016 10:43 am Published by Leave your thoughts

It’s true that computer viruses and other types of malware are getting more and more sophisticated by each passing day, but the underlying techniques that hackers use to spread them have remained pretty much the same over the years. Contrary to popular belief among the older generation, computer viruses don’t lurk around the internet looking for ways to force their way into your machine. Nope. The vast majority of computers that have a malware infection have been in fact doomed by the actions of their unsuspecting owners themselves. It’s very common for a user to get tricked into installing the virus onto their... View Article


List of three most intense Ben 10 Games and their reviews

September 11, 2016 5:04 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

If you were born in the late 1990’s or early 2000’s then the name Ben Tennyson should definitely ring a bell. Ben is the main character in one of Cartoon Network’s most popular franchise, the Ben 10. It has won a total of three Emmy Awards and raked in over $4.5 billion in retail sales worldwide. The story itself revolves around a young boy with a watch-like device that allows him to transform into 10 different alien creatures in order to fight the bad guys.   Just like every other highly succesful franchise, the Ben 10 has also inspired numerous spin-off movies, tv series, toys, fan art and...

Why are people so afraid of artificially intelligent machines?

September 10, 2016 2:15 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Whenever I start a conversation with my friends about the emergence of autonomous technology and artificial intelligence, most of them seem to be terrified about the future and imagine it to be some sort of a grotesque dystopia similar to Huxley’s “Brave New World” or perhaps like in the movie The Matrix where a human being is nothing more than a power source for intelligent machines. Another very likely movie to be mentioned is of course the Terminator where bad ass looking evil robots are hell bent on destroying the world. But why is that? Do you remember the last time you were angry at your... View Article

If you’re a gamer chances are you’ve heard about achievements or game secrets that may or may not reward you for completing them. Perhaps you’ve even tried to do a few on your own? The majority of xbox achievements are unlocked simply by playing the game, but there are certain harder to reach achievements that require you to do something out of the boundaries of the game’s normal “flow” or storyline. These types of achievements range from not turning left throughout a level or killing 10 zombies with a single chainsaw slash. You don’t have to pull these stunts to... View Article

Blox VR: A Virtual Reality ‘escape the room’ type puzzle game for Google Cardboard

August 24, 2016 12:04 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Shortly after I created my first Virtual Reality “game” which wasn’t actually a game per se, but more like a fan art/virtual reality music video that took place in the room 302 of a famous horror game called Silent Hill 4, I started working on another project because you couldn’t really interact with any objects in the first game and I wanted to learn more about developing VR experiences anyway. In fact the only thing you were able to do was walk around and just look at Henry’s room from a different and new perspective. It was cool, but I knew I could... View Article


Mobile app to find gamers and challenge them for cash prizes

August 18, 2016 5:26 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Famous Youtube gamers like PewDiePie make earning a living from playing video games seem so easy, but in reality there’s just too much competition in the live streaming and Youtube gaming niche and this makes it almost impossible for any newcomer to simply enter the arena without any important contacts and actually gain some significant recognition from the audience. I’m not saying it’s impossible, it’s just very difficult. Mostly because you’d need a lot of free time- a commodity which isn’t easy to come by in our so called “modern world”. Another popular way to earn money by playing video... View Article

August 17, 2016 1:52 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

I think it’s safe to say that this years most popular mobile game is Pokemon Go because within just one month after it’s release, the game has been downloaded more than a hundred million times from Google’s Play Store alone. Why is it so popular? Well for starters, it has a decade worth of marketing behind it. And by that I mean the TV series and the playing cards among other collectibles and some very popular video games as well. Nowadays it’s hard to find a person who doesn’t know what a Pokemon is. It’s a trademark almost as recognizable as Coca Cola.... View Article

Every once in a while there are days where I wake up in the morning, slowly crawl my way to the kitchen, put the kettle on and as it’s drearily whistling away the dream world that’s still lingering at the corners of my mind, I can’t help but feel that irresistible urge to get on the computer and play… well, barbie games. And I’m sure I’m definitely not the only one. Right? In fact, there’s this one particular game that really gets me going, especially in mornings such as this and the game is called Barbie Stunts.
