Are graphics Important?  What about Power?

Are graphics important? Do we need to be stimulated with our eyes to appreciate a games worth?

Super Mario Brothers on the NES lacked the graphical finesse we see today but it possessed a challenge.

The Xbox One and the PS4 have both raised the bar in terms of graphic fidelity but does it matter? It depends on the person I guess.

I love graphics but gameplay is just as important.  You may prefer gameplay overall. Games like Horizon Zero Dawn continue to blur the lines between great graphics and gameplay.  The game received a 9.3 from Ign.com. I must admit that I was sold on graphics alone as a child.  I left the Nintendo Entertainment System for the Sony PlayStation.  It was something about the graphics on PlayStation that stood out to me.

 The first game to ever catch my eye was Tekken.  When I saw, the character named Jun cracking another character bones it made me jump inside. Not because I was feeling the pain but because I was intrigued by the graphics.

As you can see graphics do play apart but to what extent, you decide.

Now let’s talk power! The Xbox Scorpio is coming out this Holiday season. So far all we have been hearing is about its specs. The specs are impressive, don’t get me wrong but the games are just as important. You can have all the power in the world but without any games it means nothing.

What if there are games? Are developers taking advantage of the most powerful console ever created?  Will they be held back by the original Ps4 and the original Xbox one? These are questions that gamers want answered.

If you follow this blog, I did a post not too long ago titled “Dear Microsoft what are you doing”? You can read it here. In it I ask the big questions as to what they are doing. Turns out that they have some tricks up their sleeves for this year’s E3. I am not an informant or anything of that nature. It’s just wishful thinking.

I’m looking forward to the graphical bar being raised with project Scorpio.

Are you looking forward to E3? Are graphics important?

What is it really about? Matters of the heart……….

images (5)

The jealousy and envy of some people is indescribable as they do everything in their power to try to stop you. 

In a prior conversation, I was having with someone I discovered that all these things, hate, sin and foul language are all coming from the heart. 

The heart is the place where all good and negative things flow.

I’ve never been one to dish out negativity because I don’t want to receive it in return.  

The heart is at the center of the chest and is responsible for blood flow throughout the body.  If one attacks the heart, they have the totality of that person.

I said that to say this, the heart is more than a muscle. You must never allow negativity to exist in your heart. It would be like a cancer eating away at you. When you open your mouth all that will come out will be foul.

I don’t understand what would cause one person to hate on another. But I can tell you it’s a matter of the heart. People say follow your heart and your instincts but what if your heart is full of poison and your instincts are off track?

Once the heart is in order one can then follow their instincts because they will be pure.

What in the world does this have to do with gaming? Everything…

If your heart is full of negativity you will be sore loser and will spit out hate at every turn. I have run into these people while playing online.  You just ignore them or block them, but it is truly a matter of the heart.

What’s your thoughts on matters of the heart? Do you agree  that it has something to do with gaming?

Your Already Somebody

As I sit here I couldn’t help but think of that one person that may need encouragement.

You might feel that you need validation from people but the truth is that you are already somebody. Unlike Lara Croft who sets out on a quest to know who she is, you are already somebody.

 Never let what people say deter you from being you. There is nothing wrong with corrective criticism if it is helping you in the long run. 

 Nobody can beat you at being you, you are already somebody. I say if I had this or when I get that, I will be somebody but the truth is I am already somebody.

 We put our hopes and confidence in our jobs and then when we lose them we lose our self but the truth is you are already somebody.

  So be the best you that you can be. Don’t wait on other to approve your life. Jump out there and live, you are somebody!

People Misinterpret What They Don’t Understand

3d-people-misunderstanding-27754874

Another good post that I had to re share!

Ever been told you were different? Ever been told that you were a stranger? Have you ever been told that you don’t fit in? Do people spend extreme amounts of time discussing you and what they think of you?

If not, stick around.  People misinterpret what they don’t understand! They rather judge and come to their own conclusion about you or anything about you. This can be negative or positive. So if you’re doing the best you can at being you don’t worry because that is all that you can be.

You can make improvements but don’t change you at the core, only do so if it is wrong, as we all need improvement.

Don’t stress when your misunderstood, there is an essence about you that cannot be comprehended. I am not talking about having an alternative life but I am talking about existing the best way you can and being a great citizen. Making the choice to do well and be nice to those around you.

Continue to live and define who you are regardless if people understand you. Never look for the acceptance of people because sometimes that can be too much.  Sometimes you can never be enough for people, so don’t look to please them.

Be sure in the fact that them not understanding you is no fault of your own.

I just wanted to offer a few words of wisdom. These words had been flowing around in my head.  As always thanks for reading!

 

Writing for Numbers…………………

comment-follower-stats

This was a post I did years ago I thought it was still relevant today had to repost.

In a world filled with click bait, lie’s and copy cats, I find myself asking the question do people really care what I talk about? Does the fact that I write according my to my own schedule really matter? Does the content have substance?

Have I began to write for numbers? You know, write for views? Am I a view junky?

The answer is yes and no. I admit I do look at my stats and pay attention to what people like the most.  I do see a pattern.  In no way do I want to jeopardize my feelings or views on a subject just so I can get views.

I used to share my writings on Facebook, which allowed me to have a larger audience but I found that people weren’t really paying attention. I would have to beg people I considered friends just to read my content.  I got to the point where I said I will not share content through this medium but I will make it available to those who would want to see it via a link. That will show me if people really cared.

I must share with you all that in the amount of time that I have had this blog that it has continued to grow. It means that I have a voice and that people are enjoying the content that I write.  I don’t write frequently because I believe in having content that provokes deep thought as it relates to gaming, literature and life.

. I admit it is a challenge trying to establish, maintain and exist among such talent here on WordPress.com. However, I believe that if you write from the heart and are sincere in what you believe that the people will follow you. I can attest to this fact, as I now I am nearing 136 followers. For some people this maybe miniscule number but for me this is no small accomplishment. I’d rather go slow and gain the trust and interest of people than to rush and offer nothing different from the millions and millions of people that write on here every day.

I am grateful for my place here on WordPress and I am grateful to my fellow bloggers who have reached out to me and have shared my content with others. I can never allow numbers to stop me, I hope you will not either. Remain encouraged regardless of what your stat pages shows, keep writing and know that your audience is on the way to you if you remain consistent in your ability to engage them.

Never take numbers as an indicator per say but keep going. I am not saying be ignorant to the numbers I am saying if you keep working hard in the paint, when you lift your head up you will find you’re not alone in the paint anymore!

 

To my fellow writer’s, bloggers, followers, friends, or anyone in general, never compromise in what it is that you believe and what you want to accomplish! Please don’t only write for numbers but let it be in your heart!

Thanks for reading and make sure to follow, comment and share!

Dear Microsoft, what are you doing?

Lately Microsoft has been the talk of the town with the Xbox One not having as many exclusives as Sony. With most of the games going to pc, gamers are on edge.  Seems like they are not caring as much as they should. Console gamers don’t care about being able to play anywhere but on their consoles.

Games are getting canceled left and right. I believe this all started with E3 when the Xbox one was first announced. There message was confusing and DRM practices made people dislike them. They haven’t regained their audience as PS4 has won the console race.

At this moment Microsoft is moving around like a chicken with its head cut off. Sure they may have some hidden games in development which they may reveal at this E3 but until then it feels like they have lost their footing. The Xbox division needs to realize that gamers want games, not just UI system updates.

I feel that Microsoft was its best during the days of the original Xbox . The system was very powerful and had a ton of games to boot. But most of all their message was clear and precise.

Xbox is my system of choice and I hope that they get their act together before its too late.

What’s your system of choice? What do you think of Microsoft’s current direction? As always follow, like and comment!
