Prima Games and BradyGames Join Forces to Form a Video Game Strategy Powerhouse

primagamesmay20

Earlier today video game strategy guide publisher Prima Games announced their merger with fellow guide publisher BradyGames. This is momentous news for fans of both publishers and newcomers alike.

“Uniting these two iconic strategy guide publishers brings together over 40 years of expertise, creativity, and passion for the video game industry. Whether in print or digital—from traditional strategy guides to map apps, video content, and eGuides—Prima Games helps players get the most out of their games.”

“As the premiere provider of official, expert strategy content, Prima Games has the largest catalog of detailed strategy delivered in the most convenient and easy-to-use formats. Products include interactive web-accessed guides, iTunes/Google Play apps, console strategy apps, cheats and codes databases, and traditional print guides.”

Their e-guides prove to be extremely accessible, while the collector’s editions include some pretty cool swag.

“Web-accessed strategy guides (eGuides) are available 24/7, directly from primagames.com with no download or DRM required. Print guides feature complete walkthroughs, detailed maps, instructional screenshots, and a free eGuide for access to updated content. Collector’s editions go even further with exclusive extras such as posters, interviews with game developers, lavish art sections, lithographs, and even in-game DLC.”

This merging will no doubt prove to be highly beneficial for all, especially the customers. Stay tuned for future announcements, and keep an eye out for our review of The Witcher III: Wild Hunt strategy guide.

How Video Games Turned One Person’s Life Around

Video Games Changed My Life - Quinn of RGN

Hello there all!

 

We are happy to have you here again, this time to share a background story of one our staff members who’s life got turned around through gaming.

 

For one gamer it all started in 1995 with the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

Making hours on end with the Lion King set a path open for freedom of creativity, meeting well-spirited people and having tons of fun.

This is the story of ChronicGalaxy and his gaming past.

 

I have been asked to share my gaming history with you, the reader!

As many of you know gaming goes back quite far now, and we have seen developments beyond our wildest dreams. From starting out with a basic concept in 2D to full open worlds in magnificent and breath-taking visuals, we as gamers have witnessed the beauty of development.

 

The gaming industry has had a lot of negative feedback from concerned parents across the world, yet it also has a wonderful side to it. For me this wonderful side changed my entire life.

Some people look at me as a geek, which I fully admit I am, which I’m proud of today.

 

It wasn’t always the case for the young gamer, who sheds light on the introvert person he once was.

 

Though proud as I am now to be a geek, I had my fair share of criticism in life for just playing videogames. People told me I was wasting my life away, while all I could think of was to get back behind the controller and into the magnificent virtual world I became familiar with. I can remember that I thought people were right in a sense at one point, because the more criticism I got, the more it started to feel as if I was indeed wasting my life away.

 

This alone had the effect that I didn’t feel the need to interact with people, because videogames didn’t judge you for what you loved doing. It took me quite some years to crawl out of this, which the games I played helped with. Games such as Final Fantasy VII for the Playstation 1, Kingdom Hearts for the Playstation 2 and Minecraft for the Xbox 360 helped me release the fury I had for the world, and helped me gain the creativity I have today.

 

Though it wasn’t the end goal, this gamer in particular gained a lot out of gaming.

 

I have played on most platforms, some platforms being frustrating and most being amazing. I have met people from different countries, learned about the good sides of humanity and learned to communicate through gaming. For me, this opened many windows of opportunities, including this one: Being able to write and share my story with you. This is my gratitude towards gaming, the lessons I learned and the people I met – it is truly a remarkable and beautiful thing which I plan to never give up.

 

We could not agree more! Thank you for taking the time to write this, and as a viewer; thank you for taking the time to read this. We’ll see you next time!
