You play as Mr Stay Fly – The most advanced hybrid and the most senior guard of the Royal Family. Your duty is to return as many eggs as possible to save the new breed from possible extinction.

The King has an old friend “The Owl of Wisdom” who will help guide and give you helpful hints along the way.

5 Exciting New Gaming Trends

If you need tangible proof of the advancement of technology, the gaming world is the place to go. When you think about how far gaming has come in the last few decades, it’s remarkable. From slow black and white screens to intense real-time gaming, the industry has made leaps and bounds. However, it’s not planning on stopping anytime soon. So, if you want to know what you can expect from the gaming world in the next few years, take a look below.

VR Headset

Virtual Reality

 

Virtual reality isn’t a new concept in the gaming world, but there is room for so much more than there is right now. 3D has been around longer than many people know. The reason that it wasn’t as mainstream as it is now is because it wasn’t affordable. Like the majority of innovative technology, the wealthy are the ones who get to experience it first. However, VR headsets are about to change the gaming world forever. For example, Oculus Rift, created by Palmer Luckey, has a huge field view, quicker response than other headsets and immersive 3D technology.

 

Secondary Screens

 

For years, gamers have been complaining about not being able to do two things at once while playing certain games. This is especially true for action games where time is precious and the last thing you want to do is pause the game to access another screen. The introduction of secondary screens, like Wii U and Xbox SmartGlass. If you are going to use an additional screen, you’ll need a quality HD one the LG 27UK850 Monitor. Being able to access maps or menus from one screen and continue to play on another will make gaming that more exciting.

PS4 Controller

 

Cheap Gaming

 

One of the downsides to gaming is that it can be expensive to kit yourself out with everything you need to get the full experience of games on the market right now. That’s why so many people are playing games on their phones. You can expect to see a rise in android powered game consoles where people can get their hands on cheap and free games with a 1080p gaming experience. The industry will no longer rely on big corporations to create expensive games.

 

Augmented Reality

 

Augmented reality has just as many possibilities as virtual reality. When using augmented reality, a gamer’s reality is altered to provide them with a new experience each time. For instance, games like DroidShooting can be played on phones. The game takes your surroundings and you have to shoot at the droids that appear within those surroundings. You’ll see your own reality on your phone but the game will add to it to create an experience.

Cloud Gaming

 

If you thought the Cloud didn’t have its finger in this pie too, you’d be wrong. The future of gaming will be more accessible, like music and movies, to those who want to game at the click of a button. All it will take is a device and an internet connection to play a selection of different games online.

 

Gaming is constantly changing, but always for the better.

 

Metro Exodus

Metro Exodus is OUT NOW and we think that it is absolutely incredible. Not only is it beautiful but the story is said to be one of the most interesting and immersive gaming experiences out there right now. We will definitely come back to you with a full look at Metro Exodus in the future. But in the mean time, we’re on board. This game has no competitive multiplayer, it has no co-op but what it does have is a vivid story which will keep you entertained for hours. It looks like a movie, what more could you want?!

Five years on from the previous Metro game (Metro: Last Light) you control Arytom and a band of Spartan Rangers. WHo have fled the Moscow Metro and embark on an incredible continent spanning epic journey. Not just any journey either, it’s across a post apocalyptic Russia.

The story is inspired by novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky. Metro Exodus’ storyline is a huge expansive single player experience that blends an incredible narrative. With high octane impact combat, exploration, survival and stealth. Therefore creating one wonderfully atmospheric, immersive world. We haven’t been this excited for a single player experience since Red Dead Redemption II!

Fortnite Marshmellow

Fortnite Marshmellow MONSTER Concert!

During the Super Bowl this past Sunday something amazing happened. It wasn’t the half-time show from Maroon 5, nor was it the Patriots winning the Super Bowl again. Introducing Fortnite’s Marshmellow monster concert!

It happened in the hugely popular video game Fortnite. Players who were logged into Fortnite at 19:00GMT were only allowed to play one game mode: Showtime.

Interactive Concert

By playing this game mode, players were treated to a Marshmellow concert, complete with a Marshmellow avatar and trademark turntables, a concert which was entirely live, while the masked DJ urge players to dance and have fun along to the music.

Marshmellow’s Fortnite set lasted 10mins and players could launch themselves into the air, bounce beach balls and dance, the set was entirely interactive.It is said that MILLIONS attended Marshmellow’s set, during which non music game modes weren’t available to them. Therefore judging by the fact that there are an estimated 125million users a fair chunk of those would’ve been in this set.

(BBC)

Video Game Concerts

It would be interesting to know if it rivalled the numbers of the actual Super Bowl half time show, if so, is this an argument for other games to host their own mini music concert? Is this the future? We don’t think it will ever replace a real music concert, but, is there space in the video game world for this type of content?

Let us know via our socials, would be good to get a conversation going! @howtokillanhour
