Reasons why gaming on a PC is better than game consoles (Part 1)

Reasons why gaming on a PC is better than game consoles (Part 1)

PC games have better graphics than consoles — of course, if you have an enough powerful PC. This is one of the main arguments in favor of PC gaming, as the PC hardware can far outperform those of console like the Xbox One or PlayStation 4. As a result, games on PC get better graphics settings with smoother frame rates, than that on a console.

However, gaming PCs usually come at a higher price. For instance, a great PC gaming features 1080p resolution screens compares to the same resolution that the PlayStation 4, original Xbox One, and Xbox One S — can cost anywhere near $550. Compared to the $200 price tag of consoles, a gaming PC suddenly doesn’t seem so attractive.

But, again, better graphics and smoother experience are available, if you’re willing to pay. And, at the same time, you save money in the long term when you play games on PC, as you’ll find out next.

The Steam game platform – Steam Valve Software
Steam is a platform where, among other platform that allows players to browse, buy, and launch their games, and it’s better than the stores application of Xbox One and PlayStation.

For one among many others, game sales are superior on Steam. During a sale, players can get older games with a significant discount compared to the price on console stores. For example, “GTA V” can cost around $30 during a sale compared to the $65 – original price on the Xbox store.

Microsoft and Sony have made great program with sales and discounts, but the deals will hardly be as good as you’d find on Steam.

You don’t have to pay to play multiplayer games on PC which helps save money in the long run. To play multiplayer games on console, you have to register for the paid Xbox Live and PlayStation Network services, based on which console you own. PC gamers don’t require additional payments to play games online.

Basics about Final Fantasy Game Series

Basics about Final Fantasy Game Series

Gameplay

The Final Fantasy series usually lets the player control multiple characters in a party, and build the team’s strength by gradually upgrading new abilities and equipment to compete with more powerful opponents. In many games this task goes beyond the main story with battling superbosses and dungeons working as optional tests of skill. As a Japanese famous role-playing game, many installments in the main series, involve frequent use of setting menu to select items, skills and upgrades function.

Basic battle in Final Fantasy VI

Battle systems have variety of options, in which the majority is menu-based variants of turn-based and action-based combat systems. Earlier installments have developed battles based on random while exploring the world map, while some later versions (starting with Final Fantasy XII in the single-player mode of main series games) have free-roaming opponents that are engaged without transition. Battle commands typically has a basic physical attack featuring the equipped weapons, a magic skill set such as summoning monsters, spell set and other special command abilities such as Steal or Throw, as well as a set of items, though the player may also attempt to flee from many normal encounters. The characters normally have an HP and MP status in which HP represents the damage characters can bear before they are KO’d while MP is how many spells or other abilities a character has. Most games also have elements and status effects, which can impact the course of a battle, with enemies and allies using the same skills to attack and exploit the weaknesses and/or to strengthen their strong points in an upcoming encounter.

The most popular and widely used battle system is the Active Time Battle in which characters perform an action as soon as their ATB gauge is full. The fill rate is impacted by stats, status effects, skills used and other factors.

The best adventure games (Part 2)

The best adventure games (Part 2)

Grim Fandango

Conversation, character, and imagination contribute to make Grim Fandango to be the best adventure games. Built in the Mexican Land of the Dead, where everybody is either a skeleton or a demon, the recently deceased must work to put off any crimes they may have committed before starting the treacherous four-year journey to the Ninth Underworld. It is a fantastic world with film noir impacts, crime and corruption.

The game begins with some of the finest characters ever written, such as protagonist Manny Calavera, who attempts to save Mercedes Colomar, the woman he thinks he failed to protect. The car-obsessed demon Glottis would not be more outdated in the Disney/Pixar movies, and Manny is one of the coolest characters in an adventure game. The often challenging puzzles can affect the pacing, however, thanks to the discovery and interacting with this beautiful world makes up for these drawback.

Tim Schafer’s endeavor through Mexican folklore is the pinnacle of the nice movie-quality storytelling in video games.

Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge

While The Secret of Monkey Island altered the genre and placed LucasArts on the Adventure Throne, Monkey Island 2 is a perfect upgrade in every area.

Loveable Guybrush Threepwood is one of the most endearing characters with his burning desire to become a pirate to win the heart of governor Elaine Marley who wants nothing to do with him. In addition to that, the problem lies in his utterly inept, with more confidence than capability as well as his dab hand at ruining lives. He is also being threatened by the zombie pirate LeChuck, whose ghost he once killed in the first game. 

All that make up a witty and regularly laugh-out-loud game with dialogue and situations wildly memorable as well as challenging but amusing puzzles.

Monkey Island 2 is the top of the outrageous comedy adventure and one of the top adventure games on PC. They can not be any funnier than this, and the Special Edition are designed to make this point-and-click game even funnier with pitch-perfect voice acting, painted backgrounds, and a amusing soundtrack.
