Copy PC Games

One of the easiest ways to create a back up of your game or copy your game so you can transfer it to your other computer is to have a software that is specially made for such purpose.

To help you copy PC games, you will need a blank disc, a disc burner and of course, your PC. A number of copying software are actually available to help your copy your files, data as well as your PC games easily. If you have downloaded your games from the internet, you can just insert your blank CD on the your disc burner, launch your software and the copying will start. Different software have different instructions on this one, so make sure you have fully known your software and you have learned the process before attempting to copy your games.

If you have a game in your discs and you want to create a backup copy of it to make sure you have a spare copy if the disc gets damaged or scratched, you only have to insert the disk on your CD-Rom drive in your computer, put the blank disc on the CD burner and launch your software to begin the copying.

The time it takes for you to copy files may depend largely on your computer’s performance and your software as well, so try to get a software that is acceptable for your standards. There are a lot of software you can choose from so you can actually have a good choice when it comes to the selection.

One very important thing that you have to keep in mind is that, copying games have rules and guidelines and can be illegal. Of course, this should be for the purpose of creating your back up only for you to transfer your saved games to your other computer in case you need some reformatting done to your other computer. Remember that copying and selling any copies of these games can get you into trouble so make sure you do not step out of the limits.

Inner Game Tricks

Create an exercise regimen and eat healthy. One of the greatest things you can do for your inner game is to exercise regularly and eat healthy. Not only will it improve your overall physical attractiveness, it will increase your testosterone levels, energy, health, and psychological well being.

 Get involved in group activities and social circles. Developing a life with many social groups helps you feel included and accepted in society. Obviously having a life with little to no friends can be a real drag on your inner game. When you have groups of people to go out with or do fun activities with, it is much easier to meet women and interact with others with similar interests.

 Approach women and face rejection. Rejection happens to all of us. No matter who you are, you will experience it eventually. Facing your fears head on develops confidence and improves your inner game. If you think the woman is going to reject you before you approach her, have the mentality that every rejection brings you one woman closer to finding a woman who likes you back. This philosophy is also true!

 Set small goals and accomplish them. Every time you set a goal and accomplish it, you feel more in control of your life. You also feel a sense of achievement, building your inner game. You can begin by setting a goal to talk to 3 new women in one week. Even if all three women reject you, you will feel good that you tried and accomplished the goal you set. If the challenge was too easy, make it more difficult. Perhaps approaching 12 women in one week is a bit difficult, but doable in your mind.

 Develop a sense of intrinsic confidence. Extrinsic confidence is receiving confidence from outside yourself. Examples of these are validation from women’s approval, owning a nice car, having money, good looks, or dressing well. These are nice to have, but at any point in time, these extrinsic sources of validation could disappear, leaving you feeling depressed. Do you remember the last time a woman said something nice, making you feel great, and then saying something negative to you, removing all confidence she had built? This shouldn’t affect you too much when you have intrinsic confidence. Intrinsic confidence comes from character traits and values. The things inside of you with which you have full control. Being a faithful, honest person or being intelligent is not something that will ever go away. Accomplishments that you have achieved in the past or the fact that you are working towards improving yourself also don’t go away and are things that should bring you confidence.

Xbox Gaming

Purchasing an Xbox console is a great tip in and of itself. The reason being, you can find them for pretty cheap and still get your money’s worth (more on that later). The fact remains that next-generation consoles are still quite expensive, and it will still be awhile before prices go down.

The value of used games. Speaking of getting your money’s worth, there are bucket loads upon bucket loads of used Xbox games, it’s ridiculous (in a good way). Not only that, but you can find them, quite easily, at dirt cheap prices. This is where value surpasses price big time. Not too long ago I just purchased Ninja Gaiden for my Xbox for 5 bucks. Yes, 5 bucks! With a game that good, I’d be more than willing to fork out the 5 dollars. Which leads me to my next Xbox gaming tip…

Hidden Gems. Remember those games you’ve always wanted to play for the Xbox but never got a chance to play. Now you can play them, for dirt cheap. You’d be surprised at how many great games you can find that you either couldn’t remember you wanted to play or great games you didn’t even know existed. Halo, Halo 2, Silent Hill 4, Fable, Max Payne, and the list goes on and on.

So there you have it, those are your Xbox gaming tips. What are you waiting for? Grab yourself an Xbox and start having a good time!

Online Blackjack Game

If you have: – You should:

9 or lower – hit

10 or 11 – double down if your cards add up to more than the dealer’s card showing. If not, HIT right away.

12 through 16 – hit when dealer’s card showing is 7 or higher; stand otherwise.

17 or higher – Stand

With Soft hands (any points count for a blackjack hand that uses an ace counting as 11 points instead of 1 point), things change a bit. A soft hand includes any hand that uses an Ace as an 11 instead of a 1, such as a “Soft 17”, which includes and ace and a 6.

13 through 18 – Double down when dealer’s card showing is 5 or 6

17 or lower – HIT

18 – Hit when dealer’s card is six or less; stand when dealer’s card is seven or more

19 or higher – stand

Now if you have Pairs here is what you do:

Always split Aces and EIGHTS.

Never split 10s, 4s or 5s

Split all other pairs when dealer’s card showing is 6 or less

Using these blackjack tips along with a proven winning blackjack strategy I developed a few years ago, I have consistently been winning at blackjack ever since. The house never knows what hits them every time I sit down at the blackjack table. Winning at blackjack isn’t easy, but with the proper online blackjack guide and other winning techniques, you will be dominating blackjack in no time. You can go from a person with no knowledge of blackjack and doesn’t even know the blackjack rules, into making $1000 a week constantly. A proper black jack strategy engine or blackjack strategy card game will allow you to without a doubt become one of the top blackjack players in the world.

Blackjack is a game that involves skill, strategy, and a little bit of luck. The worst thing you could ever do is not play blackjack at all. It is without a doubt the most profitable game of all online gambling games out there. You can play it right in the comfort of your own home, easily, safely, and hassle free. When playing online blackjack, you don’t have to tip the dealer! You’re saving hundreds of dollars right there. The house naturally has an advantage over you without the proper strategy. Now that you have the proper strategy you will easily have an advantage over the house. Please don’t waste your money on card counting software or card counting strategies. These systems have proven to fail time and time again. I wish you best of luck down your blackjack career path. I gave up my accounting job to peruse my professional blackjack career. I now make over 100K a year playing the game I love. It has been my dream since my college days.

About Paintball Game

Choosing your paintball gun

Choosing your paintball gun to play paintball games is very essential. There are different types of paintball guns that you can choose from. You can search in online stores like Amazon.com and in other online shops that offers it.

Just make sure of the model that you want to buy since you are only thinking of your budget here. However, if you don’t want to buy a paintball gun, there are also available paintball guns that you can rent on the spot in any paintball gaming areas. You can rent it per hour or depending on the deal you will ask with the paintball gun facilitator.

Also, make sure that the cartridge carbon dioxide that will pump out the paintball should always be full so that there will be no hassles to play paintball games. The paintball should also be new since there is an expiration date on the paintball. You will notice if the paintball is not good to use when it is slimy and the inside liquid oozes out.

You must be properly geared also to protect yourself from the pain, bruises and wounds of being shot by a paintball. This is to ensure your safety while playing the game.

Plan your moves

Prior to starting the game, one of the paintball tips is to plan first your moves. Whether you are moving as a solo gunner or with your team, strategic plans should be done so as to be successful in having a good game play.

You should consider the terrain, the flora and fauna of the place including the places where you and your team members will hide and take the vantage point. Remember that this type of game requires your agility and tactical abilities just like in any war movies.

 Implement your paintball gaming skills

Remember that your skills are important here so consider your aim and alertness. Don’t just hold the paintball gun using your hands. You should also use your keen eyes in looking for your target. Be vigilant also since your opponent might be the first one to gun you with a paintball.

In case you are caught up in the line of fire, use your agility skills like jumping, crawling and hiding in places where you are not to be seen or gunned down by the opponent.

Super Mario Bros Game

Super Mario Bros was the first game ever to be released for the NES in 1985. It was the first game to deliver effective smooth scrolling levels with a well made map. Super Mario Brothers is currently the best selling video game of all time. You can play it on the NES, Famicom, SNES, GBA, and recently the Wii. Trust me everyone, this game is a true blast from the past, and still entertains today. Mario was the first true video gaming character and he will stand up and fireball away any others that try to take his place. He will always be big in the video game industry because of this games huge impact.

The Games Story:

Many say the story of this game is horrible and it is a big downfall of the game. I mean it is just like every other game where a princess gets captured and you need to save her. The real basic plot of the game is that Bowser has unleashed a wicked spell over Mushroom Kingdom. The only ones who can save the Princess and break this evil spell are Mario and Luigi.

Well, this game was pretty much the first game to start those generic plots. But honestly, what is there not to love about the classic Mario saving Princess Peach from Bowser story? NOTHING, it is simple and a compelling story. I am sure the story does not deserve a high rank because at the time when the game came out the story was very unfamiliar and probably sounded a bit corny. But today, we all know of our friendly plumber hero, MARIO.

Gameplay:

This game is unbelievably fun to play. The objective of the game is complete each level by running to the end of the level and jumping has high as possible towards the flag. You will encounter many famous enemies such as Goombas, Koopas, Piranha Plants and many more. There are coins spread throughout the game in random areas and hidden in blocks that you must bust. Once you get 100 coins you get an extra life.

You get a score for how many enemies you kill, how many coins you snatch, and for other various reasons. Each level is unique and has different obstacles in each and is a blast to play. There are 8 worlds with usually 4 stages in each world. The game is great because it has multiple hidden secrets throughout the game that keeps the fun coming. There are even secret minus worlds and warp pipes that give the game a great twist.

The game also mixes in a few mazes to give it a little challenge. You can also play 2 players where you can play as Mario and Luigi and defeat the evil Koopa King. The few downfalls are that the game is not very long, screen scrolling, and it gets frustrating. If you play it quick enough you could beat every level in around 30 minutes.

You can not backtrack once you move forward in a level. The game is frustrating because you can not even save and there are no continues (you can use a code to start from the world you lost on). The game screen only scrolls in the right direction. I would easily give the gameplay of Super Mario Bros a 10/10 if there were at least more levels per world.

Of course, you can’t just take on those levels as just you and yourself, so you have got a few things that you can find out there to help you. First of all there’s the powerups you can find in blocks all through the game. The first one you will get is the Super Mushroom, and by getting this Mario will grow to double size (Super Mario!) and be able to take one extra hit from an enemy (and revert to normal Mario) before losing a life.

As Super Mario, you also get the ability to break normal brick blocks you come across this can prove to be extremely useful in several ways, be it finding a secret block or just taking a safe route. If you uncover a powerup while being Super Mario, it will be a fire flower, which won’t allow you to take any more hits but grants you the extremely useful power of fireball throwing. Fireballs can kill enemies in one hit, and while the same can be achieved by jumping on most enemies heads, it’s just much easier to release a fireball from a distance and knock out the enemies from a safe distance. As long as you can manage to keep the fire ability, you will be pretty overpowered.

In addition to that, you can also pick up 1Up mushrooms, which will grant you an extra life, and coins. The coins are collectibles that will give you an extra life when gathering 100 of them, then the counter will revert so you can collect an additional 100, and so forth. All things in the game; coins, powerups, completing a level, defeating an enemy are added to a points score.

This score is a leftover from arcade games, and won’t really be used for anything since the high score is deleted when you turn off your console there won’t be any competition about it. Not having a save feature might sound bad, but as mentioned the levels can be completed pretty quickly and there’s always someone around who will know about the secret warp zones.

Speaking of secrets, that’s one thing that is great about this game. While many other NES games show you pretty much everything, here there are a lot of invisible blocks with powerups or coins, pipes you can enter to get to underground coin collections and sometimes a vine will shoot out of a hit block that you can climb to get up to “coin heaven”. A fun thing with all these secrets is that some of them are in plain view, some are in a brick block you have just never thought to hit.

There are so many blocks scattered in each level, with only the question mark blocks being sure to contain something, that you would never have time to actually try to destroy all normal brick blocks. What is so nice about all this is that you can play through the game so many times and still discover something you did not know about. The amount of secret stuff is a very likely factor to why the game has great replayability.

Graphics:

The graphics in this game are wonderful for the time. To tell you the truth I’m still fully satisfied with the games graphics today. Even though Mario and Luigi have a tad discoloration and it is a bit blocky, it gives you the authentic and warm welcoming in knowing it is the first Mario game ever.

The backgrounds might only be a blue sky with the occasional green bush or a cloud, but that is all that was needed. It means it is very easy to see the foreground objects like the bricks you can hit or the enemies you are up against.​There is nothing you can complain about with these graphics and especially when the game came out they were great.

Sound:

The sound is terrific. I mean it is not annoying like most NES games and it was the start of the classic “do do do do do do-do… ” music! The game has different music for each different type of level, like dungeons, underwater levels, and land levels. All if it is enjoyable and makes the game even better. Only slight downfall is the sound effects are a bit lame, but I really should not complain. Overall it is the classy theme song that gets me to like the music of the game so much.

One other neat thing is that the music is a bit context sensitive meaning if you let the time get down to under 100 remaining seconds left, the music will speed up to let you know that you need to hurry. Also, if you pick up a star (invincibility item) the music will change to another theme that will last almost exactly until the power runs out, a great audio cue to when to start worrying about your enemies again. The sound effects in the game are good too, they are not overly complicated, and the jingles that play are great for making you feel satisfied when completing a task or picking up a powerup.

Controls:

This game is basically a pick up and play game. The control layout is so simple yet so great. The game registers every movement in it perfectly. You press forward and Mario definitely goes forward. Many NES games could not perfect this, but this game definitely did. You can run and jump and you will learn the tricks on how to get the farthest jumping distance and the basic skills in no time. The simple and sweet NES controller played great with this game and the game did every command perfectly.

The NES control pad is not really the most advanced piece of hardware out there, but in this game you will never feel it’s lacking anything. The D-pad is used to move left and right, and with a press down on it you can duck, which also results in going down pipes if they are “open”.

The A button is used for jumping, and it is pretty sensitive; a short press results in a low jump and a longer press results in a higher jump. The B button has two purposes – throwing fireballs if you have got that power up, and in addition to that it’s the run button. It works better than you might think, since if you’re running and want to throw a fireball you can just quickly release the button then hold it again to fire one off, without losing much speed.

Fire Pro Wrestling Returns

There are no drastic changes to the core Fire Pro game play. It’s the same solid grappling system long time fans have grown accustomed to. Those who are new to Fire Pro will need to spend some time getting used to the timing. The fighting system punishes button mashers. I would advice newbies to set COM difficulty to 1 and work their way up to a harder level. This is one of those games where appreciation is only gained after learning the ins and outs.

The series’ trademark features are tight game play and a huge roster. FPR boasts a total of 327 real life competitors. To avoid copyright issues, everyone has been given a name modification. Vader is named “Saber”, Kenta Kobashi is “Keiji Togashi”, etc. Feel free to rename everyone accordingly. You also have the option of changing the attire for default characters. You don’t have to sacrifice one of your 500 edit(CAW) slots when your favorite wrestler changes gimmicks.

FPR’s all-star roster features wrestlers, boxers and mixed martial artists from around the world. Puroresu legends like Giant Baba, Satoru Sayama(original Tiger Mask) and Jushin “Thunder” Lyger are selecible. As always the default roster is dominated by Puro wrestlers. Some of the fighters well known to American wrestling/UFC fans include Bret Hart, Sting, Andre the Giant, Petey Williams, Mirco Cro Cop and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.

A new addition to the series is a “corner to center” attack. When your opponent is knocked down in the middle of the ring, you can hunker down in the corner to set up a spear, super kick or a few other maneuvers. This adds a bit more drama and accuracy to matches that feature characters who set up these attacks a certain way. Because of this new feature, you can create an accurate Shawn Michaels or Bill Goldberg if you were inclined to do so.

A traditional steel cage match has finally been added. Players can use weapons like barbed wire bats, or the cage it’s self to inflict pain upon others. Other match types include S-1(boxing, punches only), Gruesome( a 12 sided UFC inspired cage) and the Electrified Barbed Wire Exploding Deathmatch. While the has Hell in a Cell, The Japanese hardcore wrestlers hurl each other on electrified boards covered in skin shredding barbed wired. It’s different, but fun none the less

Buzz worthy features include Ref edit, Belt Edit, and Ring/Logo Edit. There is a GM mode called “Match Maker”, but is it very limited. All you do is set up matches between fighters and get graded by the percentage of crowd reaction of the match. There strange special events that happen during match maker do very little to expand beyond it’s limitations. For some inconceivable reason, created wrestlers are barred from use in Match Maker.

Presentation is nothing special. Menus are serviceable, but accessing some features can be a chore at times FPR’s 2D graphics remind me of arcade games like Wrestlefest. Character sprites are not hi resolution, but they are large and detailed. Spike could have easily recycled graphics from Fire Pro Wrestling Z. They instead created new sprites and reanimated some pre existing moves. Some animations seem a bit robotic, but are pretty smooth.

I’m sad to say Spike has once again mapped the pick up weapons button to the run button. Want to get a fluorescent tube from the corner while playing in an exploding barbed wire match? Make sure you are close enough to said tubes. Otherwise you’ll go running into the barbed wire ropes, thus end up looking like a complete fool. It doesn’t ruin the game or anything, but such neglect of the R2 button has me dumbfounded. Overall that is one of my biggest gripes with FPR.

Online Slot Games

Let’s start with the most important tip of all. Do not gamble more than you can afford. There is nothing more that will bring your gaming experience down than spending money you don’t have. Set an amount in your mind that you can afford to lose. Yes, lose. You can not sit down at slot games and expect to win all the time so setting the expectation that you will lose will make the winnings all the more rewarding. Do not spend your bill money, your vacation money or your rainy day money.

Secondly, set yourself an alloted amount of time to play online slots. If you reach that time allotment, stop. Even if you have not played through all the money you could afford for that session. Sitting in front of your computer, in the comfort of your home may make you want to play for hours and hours. This could lead to the possibility of you depositing more money than you wanted to. Think of it as being at a land based casino where you have to go home at some point in time, right?

Next, should you consider taking a bonus? This will depend on your situation. Are you a new player at the online casino where you are able to claim a nice welcome bonus? Or are you a seasoned online gambler that knows the ropes or has a bank account that can afford not taking a bonus? Using a bonus on top of your deposit will add money into your gaming account that will give you more game play and better chances of hitting some nice payouts. Nice payouts because you would have the option of setting your bet amounts higher, if you choose. Always read and understand the terms and conditions of all bonuses you consider claiming. There are playthrough requirements and maximum cashout requirements that most online casinos attach to their bonuses. Be prepared to play through their required playthrough amount before thinking about cashing out. Also, make sure you know what games are allowed to be played with that bonus. Some games are disallowed and if they are played, you may not be awarded your cashout.

Speaking of cashouts, make sure you find that all important cashout button. This is the tip for playing online slot games that seems to be missed by some gamblers. The objective in online gambling is winning money and bringing it home. Once you reach an amount of money that you are happy with, hit the cashout button.. You can choose the amount that you want to cash out from your total. You do not have to cash it all out, in most cases. Also, most casinos will hold your money for a 24 hour period in hopes you will reverse your cashout. Once you cash out, some casinos will allow you to request to flush your account. This means they will not hold your money for the 24 hour period. It will be gone from your account and you will not be tempted to reverse the cash back into your gaming account to keep on playing. Contact the casino by phone or by live chat as soon as you cash out and request the flushing of your account.

Battleship Board Game

1. Where to put your ships

Some people place all of their ships together. This way if someone sinks one of the ships in that group they will move on to another part of the board. I personally don’t like this theory. I believe it is better to place your ships far away.

While it may throw off your opponent at the start that your ships are all together once they figure it out it is all over. They know exactly what area to shoot at in order to hit you. If on the other hand you put all your ships in different areas it is much harder. It is easy to find ships that are next to each other harder to find a ship that is in the middle of nowhere.

2. Know about your opponents.

Every opponent you have will probably think just a little different. They might tend to put their ships on the sides or they might start shooting for your boats in the middle of the board. Knowing what to expect is a good way to win the game.

3. Keep Record of everything

This goes without saying. You should keep record of all the spots you missed and all of the spots that where a direct hit. If you do you will not shoot at the same spot twice and that can really help you.

Online Poker Cash Game

Choose the best table. This is probably the tip that will increase your profits the most. If you are capping yourself at a certain blind level (you normally want 200x big blinds at the table), then use the search function, which almost all poker rooms have, and find the largest ‘average pot’. Tables with large average pots mean players are betting their money wildly, and it becomes an ideal place to make a profit.

Bet before you call. The general rule of thumb is: you need to have a better hand to call than you do to raise. If you call a bet, you learn nothing about their hand, you don’t increase the pot (by as much as a raise would do) and you don’t give yourself the chance to win the pot there and then. If you don’t have a made hand (e.g. flush or straight draw), make the bet anyway! You could win the pot, you could hit the flush or straight on the next card or you could get re-raised. Even if you do get re-raised, you have learnt a lot about your opponent’s hand, and you can re-evaluate your next decision.

Take your time. If you have your hard earned cash on the table, you should take the time to think through every decision with detail. Think through how your opponent has acted in previous hands, what he could have that beats you, what he could have that you beat and whether you have the Expected Value to call.

Bully the weak players. No, I don’t mean call them names – bully them at poker. If a player is playing timidly, and is folding anything but aces, you must be a predator and extract as much money out of him as possible. If he re-raises you, you know he has the nuts, which makes your decision easy!
