Article of the Day………ok so i don’t have an article each day, but when i get a chance Iíll post content I find fascinating. Fortunate enough here is one of these articles that I read and needed to share. If you enjoy it as much as me, please add one of the special social media likes, you know the one that tells one and all you loved something, rather then you sat on your arse and watched Television!
Are you having trouble with hearing the insults being hurled at you when you play games online? Its bad enough that youíre being screamed at in a language you can barely comprehend, let alone when you canít hear most of whatís being said.
The Internet has opened the world up to people in ways that would have been inconceivable just a few short decades ago. In bygone times, there would be no way for me to maintain complicated and close friendships with people who live thousands of miles away, but today? Today I maintain regular contact with distant relatives both at home and abroad.
Whilst I was at University, I wrote a paper on the lack of accurate representation of first nations people in American media. As a British person, to compile the massive amount of data I used (which included interviews, up to date anthropological studies and historical anecdotes) would have been next to impossible without the Internet. I also befriended one of my interviewees and we have a friendship that continues to this day, despite never having met face to face. Thatís just one of the many great things about the Internet.
Politically, the Internet has made it harder for the governments of the world to perform their usual scaremongering and war waging tactics (harder, but not impossible, sadly). In the past, the neighbouring countries of A and B never had contact with each other beyond killing each other over a piece of paper or some drunk diplomatís off colour remarks every few years, but today, the people of A can exchange emails with the people of B and talk to them openly and frankly. This means that if the government of B tells its people that the citizens of A eat their own children, a quick email or Skype call can confirm whether or not this is the case. This might help to explain why they keep trying to censor the net? Perhaps freedom of speech makes a better theory than practice in their eyes?
Of course, its not all serious stuff like wars and University assignments, for much of the time, itís the games that do the talking and playing together benefits from much the same sociological effects as a free ranging chat does. See? Youíre not wasting your time, youíre saving the world, man.
This site is full of links to news, reviews and places to buy the very best headsets around. If youíre going to play collaboratively, then you really do need a top quality headset and if you want one of those, youíre certainly in the right place. With a new headset, you can explore the world in the most modern and up to date way, with all the cursing, belittling and trash talking intact. That has to be worth something, doesnít it? Whatever, Iím off to kill some zombies.
