You can read more about the angry frustration the residents are having with this new wave of crime in the link below, but...
Prosecutors: 6 charged with making fake Pac-Man games in Santa Clara

Gamers still have love and passion for Arcades, but finding the old cabs and restoring them is costly, and most retro gamers, just want to play the games, so there is big business in importing Pandora all-in-one-boxs, loaded with hundreds of the old classics, and installing them into new wooden cabs that look like the originals, but sadly it still against the law, as the games are still trademarked and copyrighted.

An elite school uses the controversial game to teach life lessons

What does 'Rich White Boys', 'Grand Theft Auto 5', have in common? -- Well, in this elite school it is being used to teach them the hard-knocks of life lessons, and how your 'privilege' does not really cut it out in the real world, and you need to understand more about 'other races', 'genders' and overall violence, but not sure how GTA5 will cure them from their 'male white privilege' problems.

Innovation has been a constant feature of online slot gambling ever since the first virtual games introduced in the 90’s. In the last twenty years of the industry’s thriving existence, there has hardly ever been a period without some exciting novelty pushing the limits in the production of gaming software. Developers and major corporations are driven by the ever-increasing standards of the millennials, a large target group spanning generations born between 1980’s and 2000’s.

The millennials are a tough nut to crack – living in a multimedia world, continually exposed to sensory and visual stimuli that far surpass those experienced by their parents and grandparents. They no longer care about traditional slots, classic fruit, bars and bells of the Baby Boomers and Generation X. While the prospect of winning excites them, they also want to...

People should recognize why diversity matters in the modern video games industry. A lot of organizations still don't emphasize it anywhere near enough. A lot of women struggle with discrimination in the video games industry today. People who don't come from a Western background also struggle with getting ahead there. Individuals from the West who just aren't white will have their issues as well, in spite of the fact that many of the people playing the actual video games are going to be women and people of color. Video gaming companies should be aware of all of the reasons why diversity is lucrative as well as ethical.

For one thing, the video games industry has had a problem with originality for a long time. Many games fail to capture the attention of the general public because they are far too similar to many of the other games that are around today, which means that they are more or less redundant. Part...

From a PR standpoint, the past several years have been really hard for Konami.

We have seen a collapse with its biggest creative resource, as well as the complete eradication of P.T. from PSN, as well as reports of their awful treatment of employees. Currently, it seems that Konami is leaving the world of console game development with the only exception of Pro Evolution Soccer. If we consider the fact that Konami holds the rights to some of the most favored franchises in the history of gaming, this is incredibly sad news.

For the past couple of years, the eyes have been on Konami for trying to get out of the triple-A development market, and this decision made the company's technology director quit back in 2015. If you do not know what AAA games mean, it is not necessary an acronym for something, but a lot of people refer to it as A lot of resources, A lot of time and A lot of money. In other words,...
