Zero Feedback Questicle (Spoonweaver) "All feedback is welcome feedback." - January 27, 2013 Noyb’s remarks: “Questicle reduces one-on-one combat to a single test of timing. Above the battle a ball — the titular questicle? "The visual feedback on attacks works well — targeting circles denote an attack, their number correlates with the attack’s strength, and their position indicates the target of an attack — but there is no such indicator of either combatant’s total health. "This timing test is a common mechanic, but apart from some predatory arcade games, usually isn’t the only action a player performs. "Games come in all shapes and sizes and lengths and scopes.

Time Fcuk How controllers shaped games from the ground up - Slideshow Throughout the years, myriad factors have impacted video games, how they’re made, and how they’re played. Raw horsepower, bizarre business partnerships, and even the storage media have all played a role in shaping the way games evolved. However, the controller itself might just be the single most important factor in deciding exactly what kind of games are developed for any given platform. The defining aspect of this medium is its interactive nature. Books and movies are inherently unidirectional, but video games have always been focused on offering an interactive experience. The goal of building the “perfect controller” has long eluded engineers, but we’ve seen steady progress from the 1970s up until last year with the release of the DualShock 4 and the Xbox One controller. Paddle controls In the early days of video games, paddle controls proliferated. Next page: The humble joystick, and the miraculous d-pad

Un petit jeu gratuit tendance Retro-Gaming Ah elle est loin l’époque où il était facile de créer les graphismes d’un jeu vidéo avec 3 fois rien… Il y a une trentaine d’années, les pixels étaient tellement gros que l’on pouvait faire tout le design des niveaux et des personnages sur des feuilles à petits carreaux ^^ Un développeur indépendant a voulu rendre hommage au charme désuet des jeux de la grande époque d’Atari en nous proposant une petite bombe à télécharger gratuitement Super Pixel Man est un jeu de plateforme aux graphismes simples, mais avec de nombreuses subtilités dans le design des niveaux. Je vous laisse jeter un oeil à la vidéo pour vous en convaincre : Une autre caractéristique rappelle les bons vieux jeux d’antan : Super Pixel Man est particulièrement dur !

The Republia Times Addition Trick I must have been in about fourth or fifth grade. I was visiting my grandparents, when my uncle got out a pen and paper, saying he had a math trick to show me. He explained that by magic he could predict in advance what the result of an addition sum would be. Now, I know it wasn't magic at all, but by the end of the trick, it certainly seemed magical. Here's how it worked. First, he asked me to write down a four-digit number, like so. Then, he predicted the final result of the sum, and wrote it down. How on earth could he predict it? He took the pen, and without hesitation, he filled in the next number. It was my turn to write. He smiled, and again with no hesitation, wrote the final number in the sum. He gave me back the pen, and said. In the next few paragraphs, I'll explain how it works, so you can show the fifth-graders in your lives the same trick. First, explain the trick - that you will predict the outcome of an arithmetic sum. Then, it's your turn to predict the answer.

Teach Students to Effectively Search Google Image Using Both Text and Images March 24, 2014 Here is a quick tip I learned from Daniel Russel on using Google Image. This tip is about using Google Image for conducting a search query about a certain image. Usually, the traditional way of using Google Image is by typing a textual input into the search pane and start browsing through the page results displayed, but how about looking for images you already have? For instance, let's suppose you have a picture on your desktop of a monument from a museum you have visited and you want to know more information about that monument. For this you need to upload your picture to Google Image or simply drag and drop it into the search pane and click on "search". If your search does not return the results you want then try refining your search by adding some words to your query. You can use this strategy with your students to teach them how to effectively search for images and gather information about them.

Awesome Explanation on The Difference Between Primary and Secondary Sources for Students April 3, 2014 Knowing the difference between primary and secondary sources is essential for students working on research projects. In the video below, LeFever from Commoncraft explains this difference using as example the story of Great Storm that hit England in the 18th century. Here is how he went about doing it: To learn about this storm students will use two major sources of information to establish the facts and represent the most accurate version of the event: Primary sources These are first hand accounts of what exactly happened told by those people who directly experienced and lived the event. These accounts can come in different formats such as: documents, memoires, interview scripts, scientific documents and many more.These primary materials are the best sources for writing a research paper on the event under study as they come from people who were actually there when the event happened. Watch the video to learn more about the difference between primary and secondary sources.
