How Game Soundtracks Affect Gambling Behaviours

November 26, 2019 by Mobile Beat
What makes a great game? This is the question that game developers turn over their minds every day - and it is a question not always easy to answer. For example, the developers of Pokémon Go created the game as an April Fool’s joke and were not expecting it to skyrocket to success. The opposite could be said about thousands of games that were made with burning excitement only to flop on the market. When coming up with their creations, they need to consider all aspects of what makes the gaming experience engaging. One cog in the wheel is the gaming soundtrack. All of the great games and casino games made have a soundtrack that isn’t just enjoyable to listen to, but it matches the action within the game to intensify suspense or create an atmosphere.

August 31, 2019 by Dan Walsh
Comparison / Contrast for DJs Way back when, as a freshman in college, my first writing prof introduced me to the wonders of the "comparison/contrast" essay: It's where you take a look at the similarities and/or differences between two things or subjects as a way to express some interesting truth about them.

We even profile a solo operator... [read more]

August 31, 2019 by Mobile Beat
We all need a bit of music in our lives, be it to brighten up a gloomy day or help alleviate the pain of a long car journey.

But not all of us are listening to our favourite artists via the same platforms and various services out there that provide the music we know and love.

Torrent sites are convenient, easily accessible and have a vast array of tunes to search for and, subsequently, download. Some torrent sites might not be accessible inside or outside o... [read more]
