  1. Over time, we have brought many different tools to identify the IQ levels but all remain either biased or inconclusive, mainly because we cant have even a broad consensus on the exact definition of genius. Marks, skills and talents are just the starting point and as centuries turn, we bring out new talents that needs to be accomodated. The term common sense makes sense because its not so common.
  2. I would love to see MarioKart multiplayer race on mobile. Or is it already on phone? Multiplayers are hard to manage on phone and make it seamless but few developers get them right.
  3. Wow. That looks very different from the conventional way the game was developed and designed all these years. In emerald ruby versions, Ash used to walk in straight lines through all the landscape and not even have the flexibility to do anything else. This changes much of that and I am totally in love with the way the interface has been designed. Kudos.
  4. What are some of the worst game adaptations that you have come across? I think, in my opinion, it is Harry Potter games. EA gaming seems to have not done any justice to the way the movie or the book goes. Despite the huge number of possibilities the game makers could have exploited, nothing in the game is reflective of that magical environment. What do you think?
  5. I have no idea what happened to cyberpunk. It was supposed to be released by September 2020 but the data breach around that time delayed the release. I am not a big fan of the idea, but all my friends are going crazy over it and I think playing cyberpunk 2077 with them is going to be amazing. Any idea whats happening?
  6. I am going to rant about the shortage of stickers to use on whatsapp. I found out, to my disgust, that most of the love, friendship, lgbt+ stickers on whatsapp are of low quality or not really well represented. There are a lot of stickermakers but I dont have the time to work it out. I am going to rant untill they release some nice stickers. Any pack recommendations, anyone?
  7. LG products are amazing. We have 5 television screens at our house and 3 of the most used ones are LG LED screen TVs. We bought them at around 4 years back and so far so good. The only time.we had an issue was with the screen and their people sent us a brand new replacement from Singapore at no extra cost at all. So, great service. I will be definitely entering the contest too. I can use the extra cash too.
  8. Gran Turismo! I loved competitive racing games (untill I foud out cop chase). However, before going to those amazing games mentioned by the others, I think its better if you take a good look at Mario Kart 😅. That was the most interesting competitive game that I had ever played in my life (and a lot of it depends upon your competitor also).
  9. I think a simple search on Google Scholar will point you in the right direction: https://scholar.google.co.in/scholar?q=games+influencing+child+behavior&hl=en&as_sdt=0&as_vis=1&oi=scholart If you feel that individual papers have to be quoted, I can do that too. Here is another perspective to look at: Media as a field is destined to change the way we think and do things, thats precisely why its made that way. If a certain film doesnt keep you thinking and guess, its no good. Every media, including games and films are made to influence you.
  10. I think I agree with the fact that video games and even movies and every other media bits influence us in ways we cannot fathom. Allow me to explain with a brief example. When I go to fairs in my locality, I notice that small kids are wanting laser guns and toys like swords. Gone are the days when children would want plastic kitchen set or even animal sets. A lot of studies prove my point too.
  11. To speak out of the scientific angle of things, parasite is an organism that lives off the nutrition it derives from another organism that has the capacity to produce food. In the strictest sense, earth is only a host and not an ORGANISM that can produce food for itself. But philosophically, yes, just like us, every other organism are parasites.

    Horizon Zero Dawn

    Horizon Zero Dawn is coming on PC. Well, they released it somewhere in August. Its basically a PC version of their PS game and prepped up with some extra costumes and weapons and a digital album. Anyone playing this?
  13. Microsoft Flight Simulator, by the looks of it, is amazing! Whats special about is that they have used satelite imagery which has been adapted using AI. This means that if you have a VR headset, then you are off to a mind blowing experience. Here is a video of it: What are your thoughts?
  14. We all know that in the international stage, games like PubG are being utilized to collect information. Atleast those are the allegations. Recently, the Indian government banned PubG and a host of other games from Chineese developers citing security reasons. Are games being increasingly used a cyber espionage? What are your concerns?
  15. Now thats quite a game. I will try it out and see if it interests me.
  16. The free cash transfer has never helped anyone in the long run. Countries like Canada and Spain had tried this model and they have failed. Its just not the answer for our economic fallout. Stimulus is. Money isnt.
  17. What I miss most about gaming is the sheer simplicity of it. I have always loved how Road Rash and Dave captivated the 90s kids. Today, we have games that offer bike modifications, nitro booster and other skills, but nothing compared tot thefun I had while kicking the nearest bike rider while I was playing road rash. Besides, the older games were linear and has a similar conclusion, which I hardly find now
  18. The last movie I watched was the Imitation game. It was about how Alan Turing cracked the Enigma code using his new machine 'Christopher'. It also gives us glimpses about the socioeconomic aspects of the world war and what the policies on homosexuality was back then. For people like me who are history buffs, its a good watch.
  19. Especially with the Trump narrative going on, people tend to believe that COVID19 is a human engineered virus. On reality however, scientists have proved beyond doubt that it is not a laboratory product but a natural pathogen. However, after the spread, what we find that countries are using to their geopolitical agenda. It is also used as a economical weapon from the global fund pool. Summing up, Manmade? No Weaponized? Yes.
  20. The game that disappointed me was the Harry Potter series. The books are super amazing, the movies are amazing and I expected the game to be another amazing piece of creativity. Unfortunately, it looked dry and without much graphics and there was no extra challenges and instead stuck to the book narrative. As we move from part 1 to part 7, the graphics became better but the content remained. For a series like Harry Potter, I expected more gaming presence but it wasnt upto the mark. Such a pity.
  21. I only have three games. 1. Rummy circle. Its a 13 cards game. Short play. Good fun. Dont waste money on gambling though. 2. Chess. Do I need to elaborate on that? 3. Airline Manage 4. As the name suggests, its about trading aircrafts, arranging routes and marketing it so that you have higher returns. Its an awesome game. Never felt the need to stock too much games.
  22. I think there is going to be a divide on the opinion in regards to what happened in developed and developing countries. In developed countries, it might be true to say that the gaming industry did see a boost and things are now on a level playing field. But in developing countries where the gaming industry isnt much big, I think the prospects would have gone down as people wanted to keep more money liquid and not spend it on gaming. Pirated games. Boom.

    Mario Kart

    The only game I like to play these days is the PC version of MarioKart. I play the double player version with me being Yoshi and my cousin being DK (always). The good thing about the game is that its a quick play and that the multiplayer battle and race mode keeps you entertained. I have never tried the console version of it. Do people still play this game? Do you like it?

    Rummy Circle

    Rummy circle is a card game with a nice interface. There are various tournaments, modes like points and cash and they also give you option to add or reduce on the rate of change of points. Its a quick play with each game taking less than 4 minutes and really good for those who are looking for short round of fun that wouldnt require too much concentration. Do you play Rummy circle?.Do you play cards?.
