Visual Novels Everybody Should Play

Visual Novels Everybody Should Play

There are people that are addicted to video games. They want to be the ones controlling the happenings on the field, be the plot twisters, decide what and when to do the unpredictable thing, and simply play with the virtual reality. On the other hand, we have people that simply want to sit back, make themselves a big bowl of popcorn with a warm tea and relax as somebody already wrote the story for them. They want to enjoy the scenes of the movie and be amazed by the details, actors, real-life things overall. But what happens when you get stuck in the middle between these two?

Yea, you can do both things to satisfy your needs, but we have a better idea. Have you ever heard of Visual Novels?

If you haven’t you are missing out on something really interesting. A visual novel is something between a video game and written literature, with pictures all over the place. In most of the cases, a sprite is given to one main character which sticks out of the background with text boxes over his head and the head of other participants of the story. You can click on them to reveal the text they say, and you can determine the flow of the dialogue as with different path chosen, the characters say different things. If you are up for relaxed, mouse clicking games, Centurion Slots might be one of your favourites.

Now, let’s see which are the finest visual novels you can play.

 

The Ace Attorney Series

An engaging visual novel with a fine inviting plot, well translated into several languages, characters that simply love colours and one of the easiest to find, you should try The Ace Attorney Series. It is available on Nintendo portables, PC, Wii and iOS and is one of the most popular Visual Novels that can be found at the moment.

You are playing several members of the justice system where you investigate cases in pursuit of the truth. It is relatively easy to play and with the good and understandable English, it’s the perfect place to start your friendship with the visual novels.

 

Matches and Matrimony

You will be surprised by how realistic the dialogues are and you may get lost in the virtual world for a moment.

 

999 – 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors

Although visual novels are saying they are offering a gameplay, they are here to be played, and they are somehow connected to games, it’s rarely the case. This is where 999 comes to rescue and kills all those talks, with being the visual novel that offers one of the most versatile paths and options to choose from. Check it out!

Video Game Technology to look out for in 2018

Video Game Technology to look out for in 2018

Every gamer is eager to find out what the next big video game technology innovation will be, what is the path that the technology developers have taken, and what to expect next from them. All of these and similar questions were answered in the annual game developer conference held in Brighton.

There are several topics to cover when we are talking about the future of the video game technology. Only one thing is certain – the path on which the future game technology is walking.

Without a doubt, the invention of the VR was a revolutionary move in the gaming industry– and that’s the path that the game developers have taken! Get ready jump inside the virtual reality while using this innovative gadget.

The VR is the main device that the game developers have put an accent to it is the device that will drive the gaming industry towards the future, and it is the device that hundreds of projects revolve around in the world at this very moment.

There are many advantages that are working together with the VR and drive it towards the top of the gaming technology in recent years. One of the main things is that your hands and feet are free, you can manoeuvre around while your eyes perceive the sensation of a virtual reality. Now, there are many projects working on sensors that will detect arm movement, and, depending on the game, they will be implemented inside the game. This technology is already out on the market with the VR Gloves, which is the primal idea and the father to the VR Hand sensors.

Another interesting thing is the VR Chair that is able to move all over the room, rotate, accelerate fast and drop to the ground, just like in the Assassins’ Creed movie device.

One of the latest video game technology innovations and projects circle around the biggest disadvantage that the VR gadget receiver – it is very isolating. Dave Raynard is one of the guys that took this issue in his hands and is working on a VR that will be social, transporting the user to another place where he can hang out and do cool things together with his friends. This may not seem like a great deal, but it has the power to bring together people who are on the complete opposite sides of the world or meet new people from those areas. Scientists say that 10 minutes in the same virtual room already connects you with the other person, and they are able to recognise each other by the way they move.

It is inevitable that the future of the video games will take us completely into the virtual world, and the more we lose the perception of the real world, the better our gaming time will be. Let’s just hope that there will be restrictions as some people may get lost inside it and forget about the real world. But imagine playing World of Warcraft in 1st person or get a taste of Doom and horror moves it can offer.
