Fun Games You Can Play on Facebook

 - 

You can find quite a few games on Facebook. There is a very large variety in these ranging from strategy games all the way over to speed challenges – and everything in between. By introducing some of the games I play, I hope to inspire you to get a better experience with Facebook games.

Mob Wars and Mafia Wars

Mob Wars and Mafia Wars are very similar games. You are the boss in a number of cities, and each have their different challenges. There are quite a few players around, and you need to build a strong base of fellow gamers to avoid being attacked by large mobs.

Oftentimes, it pays to get in touch with larger families, and ask them to join your mob. Exactly as in organized crime, numbers and money speak the common language understood by all, and you can easily run through the initial levels and meet more challenging assignments as you grow your mobs.

FarmVille

This is a rather fun game where you are your own boss owning a far with animals and vegetables to be grown. You get some very nice gameplay, but the game does lag at times due to quite a few players online. However, if

The Qualifies As Retrogaming

 - 

Whether or not a game or system qualifies as retrogaming is a tough thing to quantify and something that different people will often think very differently about. The ‘retro’ in the word ‘retrogaming’ is in itself a bit of a little bit misleading. Retro, by definition, is a style that intentionally evokes memories of an older style that has since gone out of fashion. So movies from the ’30s aren’t retro, but The Artist, a recent movie made in the style of an old silent movie, is retro. If we apply the same logic to video games then something like Mega Man isn’t retro, but a game like Shovel Knight is because it pays homage to the NES games of old. Gamers have appropriated the word ‘retro’ into the new word ‘retrogaming’, but unlike the traditional definition, ‘retrogaming’ refers to playing old games rather than games that play like old games.

The origins of the word ‘retrogaming’ are, as we’ve established, pretty murky to begin with, but the definition isn’t any clearer. With the speed at which technology develops, games released at the start of a console generation look noticeably worse than those released at the end of the generation.

Tips to Get More Subscribers for Your YouTube Gaming Channel

 - 

A YouTube channel without subs is a show without an audience and it can quickly become disparaging uploading videos and getting no fans. In order to get more subscribers you’ve got to put yourself in their place. A subscriber is someone who enjoys your content so much they want to be informed every time your channel is updated with new content. That’s a big compliment to give someone, so it’s understandable that not everyone who views your videos is going to jump on the subscriber bandwagon. That being said, there are some things you can do to improve your turnover and start increasing your subscribers.

More Content

You guessed it; the easiest way to attract more subscribers is by consistently adding more content to your channel on a regular basis. The more you have out there in the sea of YouTube videos, the more likely someone is to run across one of them and find your channel.

You will also want to set a schedule for when you release your videos. If people see you are adding new content on a regularly scheduled basis, they are much more likely to subscribe then if they see you haven’t added anything in a while and

The Popular Gameboy Games of All Time

 - 

Some of the most popular Game Boy games include;

1. Tetris Game Boy games

Most people would say that Tetris is a wonderful and clever game – and as easy as it is to learn and play it, it’s pretty hard to master. All one had to do was to place some shapes in some certain order so as to complete a kind of line that is automatically cleared, as if you were building puzzles from the very scratch, but each puzzle felt a little different. It was very understandable to new players and made people addicted to such an extent that it invaded their very dreams. Even with several different versions which have come in the past two decades or so, the original portable release was just as playable then as it is today.

2. Pokémon series Game Boy games

First Release: September 28, 1998 (Blue/Red),

Considering Pokémon’s very long-lasting success, it is hard to imagine that there could exist a time when people thought this crazy Japanese critter catcher was just a passing craze. Whether one started with original Blue and Red release, or even later with Crystal, Yellow, Gold, Silver, or the myriad several other additions on the series, at a

Super Mario For Brown Kid

 - 

As a brown kid, it was tough to find media where I felt like I could relate. As I grow older, it’s become slightly easier to come to terms with this; but it’s very much a continuing struggle.

In video games, this has always been a bit difficult. One of the games that captured my imagination (as it did most people) was Super Mario 3 for the NES. I remember that the game excited me but also kinda scared me (Why was the sun so angry at me?). Its style made sense to my infant mind, but more importantly did not exclude me as an Asian kid. I believe this is because of two things. Firstly, the limited graphics of pixels meant that it was difficult to capture skin colours so most characters were generically white. While this has some obvious implications (Eurocentric), it actually meant that skin colour was reduced to a few pixels. Mario was white and European, did it matter? No. Was he really Italian? I guess he was. But the point is this wasn’t really a representation of the
