The Mobile Game Trend

Recently, mobile gaming has been gaining a rather large share in terms of revenue. Gaming consoles/platforms and online gaming giants have dominated the game industry for the last decades, but with the enormous mobile gaming insurgents, change is definitely coming and change is welcome especially for avid gamers and enthusiasts.

Mobile games revenue forecast is predicted to increase up to $45 billion by 2018. Asia has been the leader in the industry since 2013, and is predicted to dominate the industry by up to 50% total revenue. Industry Analyst Vincent van Deelen stated, “This is simply not the case. We are also emphasizing that the recent results of individual high profile companies such as Rovio, King, DeNA and GREE are not necessarily indicative of the state of the mobile market as a whole. It is not in our interest to inflate market figures, but the hard facts have forced us to adjust our estimates upward. We have maintained our year-on-year growth rates toward 2017, ultimately leading to a $40Bn+ market share.”

In this regard, mobile game players have successfully gained large share in the market like most gaming console and online gaming companies. Indeed, this is good news for game development companies and their shareholders to put more focus and emphasis on this growing trend. Android games are also expected to be predictably higher in the coming years. Though, it is still a proven fact that iOS rakes in more revenue than Google Play despite the latter having massive download for freemium model type of games. But in a global perspective, Chinese app stores and android game downloads and revenue far exceeded iOS last 2014. North America, Europe and other Asian countries, such as Japan and South Korea have also ventured in the global trend. Reports show that mobile games now account for nearly 40% of the country’s total digital games revenue. With increased competition, smaller companies are also getting creative with the introduction of e-sports, multi-screen gaming and HTML5 mobile gaming, and the final trend is the rising popularity of downloading Android games for TV-based gaming. The top 7 companies  in the mobile gaming industry compete for the release of quality games to dominate further and not to get left behind in the scene.

In the fast-paced world that we live in, cell phones are necessities that help us get through the modern days with much ease, enhancing the quality of our lifestyles. Though these gadgets have always been known for their functionality, they could also bring out the fun in everyone through getting creative and entertained with free mobile wallpapers, free mobile tones and even free mobile game downloads. 

Dressing up has always been an ‘in’ thing not only to the younger generations but to the young at heart as well. As these groups make up the majority of cell phone users, customizing each mobile handset has become popular, bringing rise to many accessories in terms of hardware and software. Though some themes, tones, wallpapers, screensavers and other software are already built-in, the variety of tastes and preference that the users posses made way to the arising trend of having more creations in the form of free mobile wallpapers.    

Though not a necessity, more and more people are finding the task of changing current displays and browsing through the many attractive free mobile wallpapers enjoyable. And even if these changes are mostly done for our own, personal pleasure, other people taking notice of how nice our displays look does give us a different kind of delight.         

The possibilities are limitless with free mobile wallpapers that come in still and interactive or moving patterns. Not only do they already come in countless designs, with each emanating a unique aesthetic appeal; but phone manufacturers and other graphics experts are still creating more and more. Whatever your personality is, and even your mood at any moment, you will surely be able to find the perfect representation. To some people, these beautiful sights that you put into display can even boost the spirit and lessen stress.  

Free mobile wallpapers are not just limited to graphical arts but you can also avail of images of your favorite stars, long-time Hollywood crushes, poster of your favorite movie, cute pets, amazing landscapes and a whole lot more. Modern technology has even enabled cell phones to take images from its own integrated cameras or transfer photos from a digital camera to be used as wallpapers.    

Like other cellular phone software such as free games for mobile, free mobile wallpapers can be downloaded from the Internet directly to your handset or through a computer. One important factor to consider when browsing through the available graphic files is your cell phone’s resolution capacity. You should only look into wallpaper files that are within the range of resolution your phone can handle. Otherwise, your time and effort will just be wasted. Transfers can also be made from one cellular phone to another by sending the graphic file via infrared, Bluetooth, SMS and email.

3 Fun Games to Play at Your Next Tea Party

Tea party games are always fun to plan. If you are looking for the best tea party games, you have come to the right place.

The first game is called Teacup Swap. Any number of people can play Teacup Swap and everyone is a winner! To play, each person needs a teacup and saucer. Let guests know in your invitation that they need to bring a teacup and saucer or you can provide one for each person if your party budget allows it.

When your guests arrive, have them place their teacups at their place setting or have them already arranged there if you are providing them.

Invite all of your guests to admire each teacup and saucer set by walking around the table. When everyone has finished looking, ask the first guest to arrive to be the first to choose a teacup. Continue in the order that the guests arrived in, go alphabetically, or have numbers drawn from a hat. Wherever the cup is, that is where they sit. This is a great game to use when people only sit by others that they know. Each guest will get a chance to pick their favorite, and no matter which teacup others choose, they will each end up with a lovely teacup and saucer to take home!

The second game you are about to learn is called Tea Tasting. This is a great game to play with smaller groups. Make sure that you have several teapots handy, and a little trinket to give away for a prize. Find a few different teas and prepare each in a separate teapot.

Let your guests taste a small bit of each tea, one at a time, without letting them know which is which. After everyone has tasted each flavor and guessed what they might be, award a prize to the best guesser. Don’t forget to write down what tea is in which pot so you don’t get confused! When buying your teas, make sure you purchase contrasting flavors. Familiar flavors are good if your guests are not usually tea drinkers (It will make the game easier for them).

In general, avoid buying mixed teas because the flavors can get confusing.

Try out these great teas for distinct flavors:

Peppermint
Rose Hip
Orange Zest
Green Tea
Lavender
Chai
Chamomile
Ginger
Raspberry

If you are looking for a silly game that is tons of fun, arrange for each guest to make a lovely tea party hat. Look at a craft store or a dollar store for inexpensive hat making materials. Don’t worry too much about finding the perfect craft supplies. Your guests are sure to get creative with whatever you supply. Need some ideas of what to buy? Here are a few ideas:

Silk flowers
Ribbons
Lace
Buttons
Beads
Thread
Bells
Fabric

The fabric can be tulle, which is inexpensive and can easily be cut into 1’x1′ pieces. Hot glue guns are needed for this project, so make sure you have some handy. Make sure you have one for every two people. If you do not have any hot glue guns handy, a few bottles of quick drying craft glue will suffice.

After your guests have finished decorating their hats, award prizes to the biggest hat, the silliest hat, the prettiest hat, etc. This game is lots of fun when everyone wins!
