It seems hard to believe but it was only in 1973 that the first mobile phone call was made in New York City by Motorola on a prototype hand held portable cell phone.
This prototype became the world’s first commercially available mobile phone in 1984 costing $3,995. At this sort of price it was only available to the rich and famous and became a must have for Yuppies and was featured in several major feature films.
This was followed almost ten years later in 1993 when BellSouth Cellular showed off the world’s first smart phone at the Wireless World Conference in Florida. With a recommended retail price of $899, already technology was becoming cheaper.
The phone known as Simon offered the users an appointment maker, calendar, email device, calculator, address book and a pen based sketch pad. From this we now have the mobile phones of today that are basically pocket sized computers are voice activated devices with GPS where you can carry out all your usual online activities, control your lighting and heating at home plus take photo’s and shoot videos whilst listening to your choice of music.
It is now estimated that there are now more mobiles in the world, 8.6 billion than there are people and out of a population of 7.3 billion some 5.8 billion are estimated to be using mobile phones.
Now the mobile phone has also become a mobile gaming console with an estimated 165 million gamers in the U.S.A. creating a gaming industry worth 54 billion dollars in 2015. About 80% of sales through app stores are for games yet only an estimated 3% of gamers actually pay for their mobile games.
These figures may seem odd at first glance but many mobile games are given away free and income is generated via advertising or the low cost purchase of extra features which enhance the game and also by the sale of game without the intrusion of advertising. Another surprising fact is that 53% of the mobile gaming population consists of women aged between the ages of 35 and 44 not teenagers as many people think.
Looking to the future we are likely to see the development of a flexible screen or projector to improve the viewing of videos or game playing and maybe even a 3D experience eventually.

The coming of smartphones and the introduction of the android and iOS platforms has become the new marketplace for various businesses engaged in app development to battle it out and try to win gamers and subscribers. There are different reasons why these developers are so eager to get you to download their application. Here are some of the ways software companies earn from a mobile game app.
While many of the hit games for android and iOS platforms are, free there are some that come with a price. They are not really that expensive because some of these apps can come with a price tag as of a dollar or less and go as high as ten bucks at most.
You would not think that they would earn much for an app that only costs a dollar or less. Multiply that price with the number of possible downloads going on, anywhere between a thousand to millions then you’ll see the reason for these companies are desperate to get their game noticed.
Most applications will not charge you anything to download it. They get you addicted to the game and locked in first then it slowly lures you with what will happen next by taking you to a level then cutting the experience short.
This will then lead you to want something more from the game. The designers will give it to you but this time it comes with a cost. They may give you the first few stages of the game for free but later on demand that you reach certain targets or download an upgraded version to have access to later stages. This is where cheats like Agario hack tool come into their own and save you time and money.
Every single game must have a challenge, including the latest trending popular Agario Game, and it’s part of human nature to always be engaged especially when you are confronted with a challenge you cannot surpass. You will try everything to pass that challenge and in the process, get yourself addicted to the game.
This is usually the fun part in every game but people sometimes want to have it easy so they can advance to the next stages much faster. This is when they want to cheat the design. However, some clever developers came up with an Agario Hack tool to help players of this game achieve their goals and overcome game challenges faster, easier and for free.
Every player, even a casual gamer, knows something about the Deus Ex franchise. You don’t have to be a fan of the series, but someone somewhere mentioned the franchise and everything it brought to the gaming industry.
Deus Ex franchise is set in a futuristic world that is full of cybernetic tech. Many people praise the game for its strong cyberpunk graphics. And indeed, the games from this franchise look great, and they are different from other games that tackle similar subjects.
This franchise is defined by choices which are given to the player in any situation. Every encounter, a player faces, can be resolved in several different ways. You can go full stealth and use pheromones and words to avoid conflict and gain what you want. Or you can go in guns blazing and kill everyone who stands in your path. The choices you have are the essence of the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
The flow of gameplay and different mechanics
Mankind Divided throws obstacles at you and gives you a choice to define your style of playing with solutions you pick. You will need some skills for particular types of gameplay, so you should decide on the style of playing at the beginning of the game.
The easiest way to go through the game is to shoot everyone. And to do that the game gives you many different skills and weapons. You have access to many lethal and non-lethal tools as well as cybernetic augmentations.
No matter whether you use a shotgun or a non-lethal takedown, the game flows perfectly. Many people were concerned with the overall flow of the gameplay due to changes from the first person to third person view and vice versa throughout encounters, but their worries were unjustified. The flow of the game is perfect; the transitions between different points of view are fluid. The initial few minutes will be strange, but once you get a bit of practice, you will love this type of change.
There is more to this game than just action
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is more than just an action game. Throughout the game, you will encounter situations that will require investigation. This aspect of the game also has different approaches through which you can achieve the results. The direct (aggressive) approach is through hacking. You can develop hacking skills or create hacking tools with which you can obtain the data you need.
Many people decide to take a different approach to the investigation. This method requires patience as you will have to go around and look for clues as well as talk to people to get the data.
The best thing about this game is that your choice isn’t a limiting factor. If you choose to deal with situations through stealth and charisma, then you will still be able to whip out your gun and shoot people. The freedom to revert to another, secondary way to go around the obstacle is the real selling point of this game. We just hope that other franchises will follow in the steps Deus Ex makes.
When it comes to mobile games, there are only few that are worth mentioning as the most popular and most successful ones. Candy Crush Saga is definitely one of them but bike race games come even before them when it comes to popularity. So if you are a fan of bike race games, you will be pleased to hear that now you can unlock all the bikes available in the game as well as levels. This can be achieved with cheats that are basically just unlocking the game content instead of giving players coins or any other in-game currency.
Where to get them?
You can get these cheats online just like any other cheat for any other game. The key is to download them from your computer and then import them into the game. You can do this by connecting the phone and transferring already downloaded bike race cheats to your phone. In order for them to work, you need to paste them in the game directory on your phone, simply go to website and get them without needing to download anything. Otherwise, they won’t work. So go ahead search the web and find hacks for your favorite bike games. You will finally be able to brat to your colleagues at work and friends about how good you are at bike race games.
How do they work?
As we mentioned before, these hacks are not regular cheats that give players better attributes in the game. These cheats only fully unlock the game’s content so that players can enjoy and get the full experience from the game. By downloading and installing these files, the game content will become available even if you didn’t play before. Full game content includes every single bike type in the game as well as all the levels counting bonus ones too. The only thing that you need to remember is to exit the game on your phone before transferring cheat files. If the game runs on your phone transfer will fail, and you won’t be able to finish it until you close the game on a connected phone.
What about multiplayer?
The best thing about these hacks is that they work on multiplayer too. You can play any level you want, with best bikes that game has to offer. If you never had the chance to compete with top bike race players and best their high score now, you can. Tell your friends how good you’ve suddenly become in bike race games and make sure that you forget to mention that you are using these hacks. Otherwise, your success won’t be accepted and approved by them. The more you know about the game, the better as knowledge is power. Try every bike and learn how they behave on a different type of terrain to determine which one will be best for multiplayer sessions.
We hope that we made things easier for you and that you will continue to play bike race games and compete with your friend online. You can easily get the best high scores after a few days of playing with these hacks.
Imagination should be cultivated if you wish to become a healthy individual and aside from reading and making art there are few better ways than playing games. And, also – games are fun. Especially science fiction. The ones that make us think and wonder. Or scare us to death, sometimes.
Before there was Gravity, there was Adrift. This incredibly immersive first person game places you in the place of an astronaut trapped on the space station orbiting Earth, attempting to survive a crash. Does it sound like something you would skip? Didn’t think so! Unique features of this game make it one of the 2015’s most popular games, and you should try it and see why it got so many prizes for anything from gameplay and innovations to graphics and effects.
This indie title is something you have to see; it is easy to miss since it never really made it big, but it is amazing! You will be playing as an alien trying to survive in space, surrounded by thousands other foreigners in the procedural generated surroundings where every step leads you to something new, and there are no two experiences the same. There is always something new to do, create, explore and experience – kind of like No Man’s Sky that works.
Talking about the indie games – Last Life is a quirky looking sci-fi noir adventure. This alone was a selling point for me, even before I heard that it is set on Mars, and you are playing a detective 3D printed from the dead to crack his last case. I mean, really? If this doesn’t get you, nothing will. The graphics are off the charts, with the incredible looking realistic characters and with the visual style that separates this game from anything you’ve ever seen.
Back to the A-gamers. This Microsoft baby is showing some promise especially after it was announced that there would be a show following the game to better tune us in the story. This only goes to show how amazing the story is. It features time traveling and manipulation after our character was granted power to see future and alter time. Neat, right?
Star Wars: Battlefront
I almost feel like there is nothing left to say after writing the title for this one. After the success that was made with The Force Awakens, there is nothing standing in the way of the new Battlefront when it comes to world domination. Battlefront already made its name giving us the chance to experience the first person lives of storm troopers in epic battles placed inside the SW universe. We can drive vehicles, giant robots, ATT walkers and many others. We also have a chance to try our chances as one of the Jedi or Sith Masters, wielding lightsabers and doing force moves. What more can you wish for a game?
Dark Souls 2 is a very hard game that requires a lot of skill. This is a game in which you die after several hits. This game teaches patience through the importance of dodge and block skills.
Upgrading the health of your character may help you against small enemies. Every boss in the game will kill you in two or three hits, and no health upgrade will assist you with that. Defeating bosses is a game of patience and observation. You have to die several times simply to have enough time to read the attack patterns of a boss as well as his big moves. Some people find it very hard to deal with those bosses. Those people should read this rather short but also very informative guide.
The Last Giant is not a hard boss to defeat, if you know the patterns he uses. This boss uses six simple fight patterns that you can counter with a bit of patience.
– The first attack is falling forward if you are too far from it. The only way to evade this one is to run at him and thus prevent this pattern from happening. Be sure not to go into corners as they will be your doom.
– Once you get close to the giant, it will perform a horizontal sweep pattern. When the attack starts, run forward and get in between its legs. But don’t just stand there get a bit behind it.
– One you get under the giant it will use its stomping attack which may be deadly if you aren’t careful enough. But just before the assault happens, do try to hit its legs two or three times. You can go for an attack or two more, but that is dangerous.
– When you notice the beginning of the stomp attack run away or dodge. It would be best to run and get in front of your enemy as soon as possible. This will initiate the sweep attack, and you can repeat this until its health goes down to 50 percent.
– At half health, the Last Giant will rip one of its arms of and use it as a cudgel. The range of his attacks is increased so do be careful.
Dragonrider is a very straightforward and enjoyable boss in Dark Souls 2. It uses only two attacks, so it is easy to recognize its the impending move and counter it.
– The first attack is the lunge pattern. It knocks your character back whenever it hits it. Due to the place where you battle this boss, there is a high chance the attack will knock you off the platform where you fight it and kill you instantly. Staying behind the Dragonrider will counter this attack.
– The second type of attack is the horizontal sweep, and it can happen once or twice in a pattern. Hitting the boss three or four times and then running behind its back will ensure your victory.
Todd Howard from Bethesda Game Studios enthusiastically announced to a hall full of nerds that Fallout 4 would be coming out and they went nuts. It was also announced that those who would purchase Fallout 4 in the first 90 days after its initial release on November 10th will receive a code to download a free copy of Fallout 3. However, according to a post on Bethesda Blog, it turned out that Bethesda Game Studios was only offering that luxury to those who pre-order Fallout 4. The code would then be available to them within a 7-10 day period of pre-ordering and will be redeemable on Xbox.com or on the Xbox 360. Still, the game has been released so you are not interested in this anymore.
Buyers will be able to play Fallout 3 on the Xbox One if they acquire a free copy this way because it’ll feature backwards compatibility. However, the offer only stands, it seems, if you purchase your copy of Fallout 4 from the Xbox Store. There’s no mention of this offer anywhere on Amazon or GAME. Also, it’s bad news for PS4 gamers because the offer is exclusive to Xbox One. Also, many users are confused about whether Fallout 3 will be a playable title on the Xbox One via backwards compatibility – Bethesda products are known for various bugs on every platform at launch, something that might impact their release on the Xbox One which essentially attempts to emulate the 360 via software.
Fallout 4 is now available for pre-order on the Xbox Games Store for $59.99/£59.99. Moving away from the controversial UK price for the game, it seems like a decent offer provided gamers are willing to sacrifice a physical copy as part of the trade.
Open World Gaming
The release is really important for the PC because of two reasons: Mortal Kombat X and Arkham Knight. Fallout has come to be known as one of the most complete Open World experiences there is so it’s really important that it transcends the controversy surrounding the two biggest screw ups for PC gaming this year. Come November, people will be expecting fluid performance across all platforms, not a promise to release patches a few days later.
Todd Howard said that the team at Bethesda Studios had been working on Fallout 4 since 2009, just a year after the release of 3, so expectations are really high for this, arguably even higher than Arkham Knight.
Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition
