With the introduction of the world wide web, gambling games have never been the same. It used to be that people went to the casinos to play craps, black jack, poker, slot machines and what have you inside the casino.
Set an amount of time each day – maximum – that you’ll allow yourself to play. Some of the games, like World of Warcraft, have parental locks that block the game from starting except during select hours. If you can keep yourself honest and use this tool, you’ll only play for a reasonable amount of time each day or each week.
Second, we have the Xbox 360 from Microsoft. It is the second console in terms of sales (50 million units worldwide as of Jan 5, 2011), which is just a little bit ahead of the PS3. Unlike Wii, it supports HD-quality video output and has quite powerful CPU and graphics system (although perhaps not as powerful as the one in PS3). Xbox 360 has several highly popular games that are exclusive to the platform, such as the Halo series. One of the strongest sides of Xbox 360 is online multiplayer and other services offered through the Xbox Live network. In my opinion, Xbox Live is the best online console community, definitely beating PlayStation’s PSN. If you are into video games, I think Xbox 360 is a great choice.
I’ll also be juggling this with replacing the new modem Rogers gave me, which was supposed to make my internet connection better, stronger, faster. They said they have the technology, but even a Ferrari isn’t going to get far with flat tires; the connection keeps cutting out on me, seemingly at random. Their tech support has tried to fix the problem, but it appears to be beyond their means. So in for the exchange I go.
There is also talk of browsing the internet from your sofa with the Wii U controller. The Wii already does this, but hopefully the Wii U will handle video streaming better. On the other hand, if– like the 3DS– it doesn’t use Flash, that’s going to weaken the prospect significantly.
Judging from my own experience the Motorokr produces a very clear sound, and get this, when you take your cellular calls it pauses your music so that you never miss a beat. I give the Motorokr T505 two thumbs up.
Without the internet, there would be no way for many of these games to exist in the form that they do now with people taking on other identities and fully engaging in a fantasy world to play a game.
