Whether you’re looking for a portable title to enjoy in the sun or a fresh addiction to keep you nice and shady, this summer promises a whole host of new technology, games and fun
. Excited? Here are a few of our own current favourites to keep your hype steady and your gaming budget pointed in the right direction.
Hey, Who Turned Out the Lights?
Slap on those goggles and get to work! VR is a genre at the forefront of entertainment gadgetry and innovation, and, quite frankly, it’s absolutely fabulous. With options available on both mobile phone, console and desktop PC, now almost anyone can get involved. And that makes this the prime time to do so! Prices are lower, tech is better and there are games aplenty to give a go over the summer. Swerve the racecourses of Gran Turismo on PSVR, socialize on Steam VR Chat and return to the world of Skyrim – this time for a close-up experience.
All you have to do is choose your hardware, set up a space (no delicate instruments in swinging reach, please) and let the system take over. Hand sensors or controllers track your input and the mask responds directly to your view within the game. So get your friends over, get a BBQ going, and enjoy it all immensely as they fall backwards into the couch.
Deal Me In
An ice-cold drink, a good meal and a game of cards. Nothing rounds off a summer day like friendly competition, and now you can take part anywhere, anytime. Canadian online casino games
can take you to the clouds of Zeus or the arenas of Rome (and anywhere in between) at the simple click of a button. The key word here is variety – one game is all well and good, but how about a dozen? Blackjack, roulette, slots or pontoon. The bets and wager genre is one that gets the blood pumping and the tension rising – a great alternative on Friday night if the regular crew aren’t around.
Play on the train, plane, bus or in the car. So many casino titles now come with mobile alternatives, meaning entertainment is never far away.
Work Hard, Play Hard
Up for a more intense experience? When the day is done and the sun’s gone down, why not pick up (or return to) an MMO? The genre’s been steady for years, and with modern releases like Overwatch
stirring up a storm worldwide, the space is bigger, better and more popular than ever. An MMO of your choice (World of Warcraft? Call of Duty? World of Tanks?) on a theme that interests you can make for hundreds of hours of fun over the holidays, with friends or solo.
VR, bets and wagers and MMOs all have the same things in common: they’re fast and they’re exciting, and that’s why we’re hyped for their summer releases. So what are you waiting for? Choose your title and get gaming! Long grinds and new challenges await.
