Can Console Games Attract Casino Players and Vice Versa?

Can Console Games Attract Casino Players and Vice Versa?
Published by: forahobby on Wednesday, October 16, 2019
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox 360, Xbox One,

Console game developers have often looked towards the casino gaming market to attract new players to their consoles. But there has always been something lacking in the subsequent titles that have been released.

Can Console Games Attract Casino Players and Vice Versa?

The problem with simulations



The main problem for console developers is that their casino-based games have always been simulations when in reality, serious casino players prefer the features and benefits of real games. There are players who enjoy playing casino simulations rather than the real thing, often as a break from the intense world of console gaming, but their numbers are limited.

So we have serious casino game and poker players on one side and hard-core gamers on the other and there seems to be no way of bringing these two audiences together.


Previous X-box titles



Pure Hold’em: Full House Poker was released on the Xbox One and provided a decent poker gaming experience for the genre. The game featured interactive multi-player options and tournament poker, and the graphics were excellent. As poker simulations go, the developers made a great job of releasing a polished product but the underlying issues remained.

Prominence Poker was another title that made a great attempt to make a simple simulation game more interesting. It featured amazing graphics and an assortment of underground gambling dens for players to visit on their way to grabbing the virtual pot.

Red Dead Redemption Now Available on Xbox One and PS4

Red Dead Redemption Now Available on Xbox One and PS4
Published by: forahobby on Sunday, October 28, 2018
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox One,

Rockstar's Western themed video game, "Red Dead Redemption 2", is now available worldwide for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 systems.

Red Dead Redemption 2

Developed by the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland.

America, 1899. The end of the Wild West era has begun. After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.

Check out the official Red Dead Redemption 2 Launch Trailer below and learn more about the game by browsing Red Dead Redemption 2 via the Xbox One Games on XBOXONE-HQ.COM.

Red Dead Redemption II Released Late October

Red Dead Redemption II Released Late October
Published by: forahobby on Monday, October 22, 2018
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox One,

Any release by Rockstar Games is cause for celebration in the gaming community, but Red Dead Redemption II (RDRII) deserves a party fit for a king. Players expect the developers to come through like they always do, and it’s a safe assumption that they will.


Ever since the release of the second Red Dead Redemption back in 2010, audiences across the world are hooked. That game not only featured impressive graphics but an intricate storyline with an open-world concept and plenty of Wild West-style action. Shootouts, gambling, bounty hunting and cattle herding all played a part of the daily special. But eight years have passed since that release date. What gives?

After waiting for what seems like a long time to play RDRII, the developers are still vague about when the game is set to release, and there is much confusion surrounding the actual date — we had several false alarms throughout 2017. However, Rockstar finally gave us a
concrete date: October 26, 2018. And as that long-awaited day dawns, we do know you can play the new release on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. But it could also be a matter of time until a version of the game releases for other consoles.

So, what can we expect from the game? The storyline takes place before the second installment in the Red Dead series. That means the plot centers on the magical time in between Red Dead Revolver and Red Dead Redemption I in the year 1899.

The protagonist, Arthur Morgan, must flee with the rest of his gang after a failed robbery attempt, and if you’re going to hop aboard the western train with the rest of the die-hards, you need to get him out of many tricky situations to survive. As before, the game revolves around your choices as Arthur, which determines how you fare out and what missions you need to complete to move forward.

Act honorably or like a villain. The choice is yours. That's nothing new, but there are new aspects to consider. The immersion is much stronger with RDRII. You need to take better care of weaponry and need to choose the right ones for the task at hand.

You can interact with NPCs in new ways, some of them not too pleasant (for the NPC) and take care of your character as well. Hair, clothes and food are no longer integrated automatically, so you must choose appropriate options for the weather and your goals. Hunting and fishing bring on a whole new level of pain as well. You must track down the wounded game, skin them and choose the appropriate arms.

While the game isn’t wildly different from the first game, it provides refreshingly new scenery and a much more immersive and real experience that most every fan can get behind.
