    How Do Online Games for Money Really Work?

    Casinos are usually associated with wealth and luxury, but we often overlook the high number of gambling joints that don’t look particularly flashy. In order for these institutions or gambling websites to be profitable, they need as many customers as possible. Having big spenders as clients also helps, but when it comes to online entertainment it’s all about quantity.

    Bigger entertainment resorts are made to attract high-paying individuals, and they make profits from casinos,...

    With some scenes bringing even the mighty RTX 3090 to its knees, drastic measures needed to be taken.

    The PC port of Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin has had a number of issues in the performance department. Sadly, this isn't exactly all that uncommon for many recent Square Enix offerings on the PC.

    In general, performance seems to be pretty bad for the game, and this is in addition to other technical hiccups and inconsistent visual quality. Apparently, there...

    Epic May Make Fortnite No Build Mode a Permanent Addition

    Those people who say they don't play Fornite "because of the building" now have no excuse.

    We all know that one person, or maybe you are that person, who said that they would totally play Fortnite if it weren't for the whole "building" mechanic. J, I'm looking at you. As it turns out, Epic Games did something a little zany this week and turned off building from the game's default battle royale mode.

    This no-build idea began with the launch of Chapter...

    Online casino legalization around the world

    Although the US has long had a reputation as a society that encourages freedom and limits the involvement of government, like any nation, it has its particular areas of controversy where questions of liberty and ethics overlap, leading to developments that may seem strange to outsiders.

    Gambling was not outlawed in the US for most of its early history, at least, not in a systematic fashion, but attitudes changed at the end of the 19th century. In 1900, lotteries were outlawed...

    5 Reasons Why Mobile Gaming Is The Future

    Whilst video games have been around in rudimentary form since the 1960s, it took until the late 1980s for the industry to truly realize its ludicrous potential. Arcade and casino games existed before this, although genuine home video gaming entertainment options were limited. This all changed with early consoles like the PlayStation or Nintendo 64, ultimately resulting in a 21st Century gaming bonanza.

    Video consoles well and truly ruled the roost during the 2000s, but with...

  • Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Get that Premium Edition and play three days early!

    Looks like the latest growing trend with game releases is to offer a more expensive Premium or Gold or whatever edition that grants you access to a game a few days ahead of its official release.

    Starfield did it with their $99.99 (USD) Premium Edition. Today, Payday 3 is doing an "Early Access" release with their Silver and Gold editions. Diablo 4 did the same thing earlier in the year, as did Madden NFL 24,...
    I don't mind. If people want to spend more to play early, let them!
    I'm indifferent to the whole idea.
    I think it's kind of dumb that people get to play earlier. Spending more shouldn't offer a "head start" on other paying customers.
