Is Twitch a Social Network

By | September 9th, 2014|Categories: Social Networks|Tags: , , , |

People are asking what is Twitch, is Twitch.tv a social network?  To find out the answer to this first we need to know what what is social networking and what are social networks for. What is Social Networking A social network service enables users to find like minded individuals or people with the same interests to connect with. So a social network is basically that community or social relations. We use social networks to interact with others, we follow them, connect with them, share content with them. In short a social network is a community of people finding and communicating with each other, to be social within a network or on a platform. So, is Twitch a social network With the above meaning, to me, yes Twitch is a definately social network.  Although Twitch is referred to as a broadcast media platform, because Twitch is all about live streaming.  Some would say that its not classed as a social network.  Live streaming could actually be the next big thing in social media, its growing fast - With Social media its all about connecting [...]

3 ways to prevent a ban from online games

By | June 28th, 2014|Categories: Games|Tags: , , , , , |

Getting banned or suspended from a game is never fun and sometimes you might be mistakenly banned for no reason that you can see, but sadly some games won't even talk to you about your misfortune, they are right and you are wrong.  Even if you say you were hacked, they say that this is your problem you should have protected your password. I've played online games for many years with various gaming companies, Sony, EA games, Jagex,   Square Enix from the biggest to the smallest games - usually games that involve chatting and meeting new players, which is why I like Empire Avenue, the social media stockmarket game. This game enables me to chat to people that are like minded.  Empire avenue has recently changed many of its rules or TOS basically because the game had been seen to have users that were using the game for reasons not intended and it needed a shake up, to protect its users and its reputation. Due to this people have found themselves, told off, suspended, banned etc, however wrong this may [...]

Addicting Indie Adventure Game – Spud’s Quest

By | September 29th, 2013|Categories: Games|Tags: , , , , , |

Spud's Quest is a fabulous indie adventure game created by Chris Davis from Derby UK, that takes you back in time as it was inspired by classics such as the Dizzy series, Zelda and Metroid. Talk about nostalgia, yes - I'm emotional! Chris has been interested in making games since he got hold of the ZX Sprectrum age 12, since then has taught himself to sprite and code games. Spud's Quest was successfully funded 120% on back in November 2012 on  Kickstarter with its 475 backers raising £6000 I first noticed this game from chat floating around on Twitter - It seems that Chris, who is on @SpudsQuest has done a wonderful job raising awareness on this Game.  Somewhere I saw someone ask him, how many on the Dev team - "Just me," he answered. I love Platform Puzzle Games, and the name "Spud's Quest" intrigued me,  so I had to check it out more -  I saw that @beetlebear of @indiegamehq was reviewing it on Twitch.tv and giving away keys - so I popped over to have a look, [...]

Gaming – The next generation – Nintendo 3DS

By | October 3rd, 2011|Categories: Games|Tags: , , , , , , , |

PS Vita. Wii U. With these consoles (possibly along with the PS4 and X-Box 720) launching over the next two years, the near future holds a lot for gaming. However, with a new set of consoles set to erupt onto the market, it would be easy to forget that the next generation has actually begun – albeit not explosively – with the 3DS. Nintendo 3DS I’ll be fair; the 3DS hasn’t exactly had the greatest year so far. After its launch in March, it sold poorly due to the lack of Nintendo’s usual quality software (to this date, there still isn’t a full Mario title out for the console) and the high price point. This led to an unprecedented price drop after less than six months from the console’s launch, which annoyed some fans and caused investors to worry about Nintendo’s future. The worlds first glasses-free 3D Gadget However, things could be turning around for the worlds first widespread glasses-free 3D gadget. With software titles like Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land and Sonic Generations out this year, on [...]

Microsoft Arc Mouse Review

By | January 13th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

I must admit  this mouse was a total impulse buy - its curves, angles and smooth design caught my eye and I had to have one. I am a bit fussy when it comes to using a mouse - its something I use a lot as I'm not really a keyboard shortcut person, I'm a scroller and a clicker. I also draw and design with my mouse so its really important that a mouse has a good feel, is comfortable and responsive. I usually take a while to choose a new mouse but this impulse buy seems to have been a good one. The arc feels luxurious in my hand , its so silky and comfortable I forget its there. I've read articles where people thought it was too small, I'm not sure what bucket sized hands they have, mine aren't exactly small and it is absolutely ideal for me. Even though essentially the Arc was designed for the purpose of being portable and wireless this wasn't even a factor for me, I didn't need it to be either of [...]

Am I an Xbox Widow?

By | August 25th, 2010|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , |

Xbox widows are people that complain that their spouses are playing on the Xbox all the time, that they are in second place to the console.You can read on websites that some people are relegated to the bedroom to watch the 14inch portable TV all night, while their partner plays on the Xbox on the 42inch plasma.When playing Xbox you might hear someone saying they have to sign out as their other-half wants to watch Eastenders or Big Brother and it will be divorce if they don't. There's even a Facebook group for ithttp://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=60579179697A forum http://www.sheffieldforum.co.uk/archive/index.php/t-211954.htmlAnd a support grouphttp://www.cafemom.com/group/37146Some sound really extreme, like the guys that don't work and just spend 24/7 playing on the Xbox but generally its just the evenings people seem to complain about,  griping that they don't get any time with their spouses or the TV. Basically they feel unloved or replaced by the Xbox. Thank goodness I don't have that problem.  We like gaming in this house.  We have 2 Xboxes, a playstation2 (not a PS3 we aren't greedy), one main PC and some laptops [...]
