Top Ten Funniest Games for Girls in 2020 (part 1)

Nowadays, the types of video games that girls like are just as varied as the types of titles that boys like. Here are ten of the funniest games that get the most praise from this demographic.

  • Breathtaking graphics showcasing Lara Croft and the island brilliantly.

Cons

  • A little too realistic for fans.

The Windows 10 version of the game is literally years behind the other versions in content updates so it’s worth installing the iOS or Android version if you can.

The game has evolved significantly after the initial launch and now features a wide variety of mini games to select to play, some towns and areas to manage, as well as a massive cast of characters to welcome and level up.

Xbox Game Pass Adds EA Play without Additional Cost

EA Play, EA’s games subscription service, originally known as EA Access or Origin Access, is joining Xbox Game Pass for free.

In addition to the pricing reveal and launch date for Xbox Series X, Microsoft announced that EA Play will be included without additional cost with both Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Game Pass for PC. That means Ultimate members are now allowed to use Xbox Series X and S, EA Play on Xbox One, and Windows 10, while Xbox Game Pass for PC members get access to EA Play on Windows 10. The addition will be available in holiday 2020.

This will make Microsoft’s subscription become a better deal than before with EA’s biggest franchises, including FIFA, Need for Speed, Titanfall, The Sims, Skate, Battlefield, Madden NFL, and Mass Effect, available on Xbox Game Pass in several months.

Users paying for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will be allowed to get access to EA games on their Android devices through Xbox Game Streaming, which will be available on September 15 in select markets.

An EA Play subscription also offers some other benefits. It’s not the same as an EA Play Pro subscription that consists of unlimited access to choose new EA titles. With EA Play, new launches take around at least one year to show up.

EA has made a lot of effort to develop its subscription service by expanding access to it. EA Play is available on PC via PS4, Origin, and Xbox One, too.

Microsoft gaming partnerships and ecosystem CVP Sarah Bond said that since they launched Xbox Game Pass, it has created amazing experiences for users. It amplifies the power of gaming – to bring fun and enjoyment to a day, unlock discovery of new adventures, and make it possible to connect every one even from afar.

Xbox Game Pass now has more than 10 million members from all countries around the world and EA Play also reached five million members in October last year.

The Chinese community is arguing when there is a game similar to League of Legends Mobile

A MOBA game that has just appeared in China has caused a huge controversy among the gaming community because it is too similar to the famous MOBA game – League of Legends.

A few days ago, China’s QQ news site posted a piece of information related to a brand new MOBA game that was about to be released on mobile and promised to bring new experiences to fans, titled Arena of Glory.

Arena of Glory (also known as Kings of Glory or Heroes of Dawn) was officially open for trial from August 26 to September 1.

However, the most remarkable thing is that this game developed by JJ World has many similarities with League of Legends, from the map design style to the game interface. League of Legends is a game developed by Tencent. Since its launch, this game has become one of the most notable games in the esports arena. You can find out the betting details of this game through the sports betting podcast or bookmakers’ esports.

Arena of Glory is taking a lot of time to develop, but the elements inside this game have quite a lot of details imitating the predecessor of League of Legends Mobile, from the interface of the product waiting to General equipment shows that this game has probably taken a lot of ideas from China’s number 1 MOBA game.

Even when experiencing, many gamers have discovered that Arena of Glory’s general system plagiarizes many general skills from a variety of different MOBA titles. Some gamers have pointed out that a champion’s skill set in Arena of Glory has many similarities with 4-5 champions of League of Legends.

Suppose you compare this game with League of Legends. In that case, the player can also see many coincidences, from the location of grass distributed in the forest and lane, to the ambulance bag mechanism behind the mid lane, as well as the System Ping warning of Arena of Glory will make many people think that this is League of Legends.

Of course, the game Arena of Glory is still receiving a lot of attention from gamers, with hundreds of thousands of users registered to experience in the first few days. Of course, there are compliments and others, but the early successes of Arena of Glory can also be considered relatively successful in the competitive MOBA game market at the moment.

Tips to Optimize Windows 10 for Gaming (Part 2)

Disable Nagle’s Algorithm

Nagle’s algorithm creates data packets to improve the efficiency of TCP/IP networks. However, this can impact the Internet connection, making it less stable. Disabling this algorithm can cause latency issues while playing games online.

Follow these following steps to disable Nagle’s algorithm so that you can optimize PC for gaming in Windows 10.

Step 1: Right-click the Start button, choose Run, input regedit, and then click OK.

Step 2: Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesTcpipParametersInterfaces with many folders shown.

Step 3: Match our IP address to the DhcpIPAddress key in one of those folders to access the correct file.

Step 4: After accessing the folder, right-click it, choose New > DWORD (32-bit) Value to create two keys – TCPNoDelay and TcpAckFrequency.

Step 5: Double-click each key and change the value data to 1.

Adjust mouse setting to improve gaming speed

Another good method to optimize Windows 10 for gaming is to disable mouse acceleration. And here are steps we should follow:

Step 1: Head to Settings > Devices > Mouse > Additional mouse options.

Step 2: Within the Point Options tab, uncheck Enhance pointer precision and then save the change.

Adjust visual effects settings

In Windows 10 graphical user interfaces (GUIs), there are a lot of fancy visual effects that are turned on by default. When playing a game, they might cause the available processing power of the computer. Therefore, we can tweak visual effects settings to optimize Windows 10 for gaming.

Step 2: Check Adjust for the best performance.

Step 3: Within the Advanced tab, select Programs, and save the changes.

Step 2: In the Power and sleep page, click Additional power settings.

Tips to Optimize Windows 10 for Gaming (Part 1)

Windows 10 has become the favorite operating system for gamers thanks to its ability to offer better game performance and faster frame rates, as well as support native and retro games, have a Game Mode, and much more. But this is not that simple, we need to know the useful tips to optimize Windows 10 for gaming in order to make games run faster on our PC. Now, let’s have a look at them.

Use Windows 10 Game Mode

The first thing we want to suggest is to enable the game mode on our PC, which is used to improve the gaming experience by providing more system resources to games. It can help us to get a bit extra out of the hardware during high-intensity gaming sessions.

To use the game mode on our PC, follow these steps:

  • Press the hotkey Win + I to open the Settings app.
  • Go to Gaming > Game Mode and turn on the mode.

Upgrade to an SSD

Although upgrading an HDD to SSD can’t drastically improve the game performance, it is helpful in terms of reducing the loading times. In the present, games take more and more disk space and upgrading an HDD to an SSD can be a time-saver as the loading times can go down from 30-40 seconds to 2-3. This is significant for gaming.

If you have an adequate budget, you can prepare an SSD and then use MiniTool ShadowMaker – a professional SSD cloning software – to clone HDD to the SSD. And then, install the SSD to the computer.

Prevent Steam Auto-Updating Games

Like Windows Update, Steam auto-updates are also a problem that you need to prevent. The auto-update feature on Steam can update all the games including games that you haven’t played for a long time. This can affect the PC memory and slow down the gaming processes. You can prevent Steam from automatically updating games in order to make Windows 10 faster by following these steps:

  • Launch Steam and go to Steam > Settings > Downloads.
  • Uncheck the box of Allow downloads during gameplay.

Apple rejects Facebook Gaming app from the iOS App Store

Apple has rejected the submission of the Facebook Gaming platform from the iOS App Store at least five times since February.

According to a new report from the New York Times, the Facebook team is not surprised by Apple’s decision because they have been unsuccessfully to try to launch the Facebook Gaming app on the App Store since February.

Amid coronavirus lockdown restrictions, Facebook announced its Facebook Gaming app back in April. The free app, available on Android, lets users play simple HTML5 games with friends as well as watch live streams of other players.

The New York Times reported that Facebook submitted the app to Apple in February. It was denied on the Section 4.7 of Apple’s guidelines, prohibiting HTML5 games in a store or store-like interface.

After the original rejection, Facebook has changed the design of the app in some ways, including removing categories, colorful icons, and the ability to sort games. Apple  said no to each of those submissions.

Facebook is reportedly “weighing its next move,” which might include launching Facebook Gaming without any game at all or with games that are harder to find. That might leave only the social networking aspects and gaming streams of the app.

The report comes amid ongoing antitrust scrutiny for Apple and its App Store dealings. The Cupertino tech giant is presently the target of a Justice Department probe into its App Store practices.

Apple has also generated some controversy for reportedly pressuring the email app Hey with the aim of adding in-app purchase options for subscriptions – a capability it lacked to skirt its 30% App Store fees.

Meanwhile, Apple has its own gaming service in the form of Apple Arcade, a $4.99-per-month subscription which allows users to play exclusive titles on iPad, iPhone, Mac, and other devices in Apple’s lineup.
