Biggest Adventure Games on the PS3 This Christmas

If you are like me and want to get away from it all this Festive Season why not save a bundle of cash and play one of these hugely popular Adventure Games for the PlayStation 3 instead…

Little big planet

In Little Big Planet you play as a Rag Doll type character called ‘Sack boy’ where you run, jump and grab your way around 8 Individually Themed Worlds. The Big Fuss about this game is its customisable features where you can not only customise your Sack boy from his clothing and Facial Expressions right down to Customising and Creating your very own levels which you can share with people across the world online.

Far Cry 2

If you fancy something a little bit grittier this Christmas then Far Cry 2 might be the one for you. In this First Person Shooter you get to openly travel around an amazing 50-square kilometres of diverse African landscape where you play a Mercenary who has been sent here to take out a Notorious Arms Dealer known only as ‘The Jackal’. Expect to experience intense shootouts in this Highly Detailed Terrain.

Tombraider: underworld

You once again take up the role of the fearless female adventurer ‘Lara Croft’ in this the first incarnation of Tomb Raider on the PS3. Travelling to remote locations such as Frozen Islands in the Arctic Sea or the Jungles of Mexico you must use the Environment to you advantage in order to solve puzzles and find the Mythical Hammer of the Norse god Thor.

Finding My Heart – Free Online Romantic Adventure Game to Remember

Do you like romantic stories? How about trying out interactive one? Finding My Heart is an awesome adventure game, where you’ve got to learn emotions to get back your love.

The game starts with a short introduction, where your girlfriend throws you out the door because “you” (the game character) only play the computer games and don’t devote any time to her! (Sounds familiar? Anyone?) Now, you have to learn to express your love to bring love back into your relationship and fix up the broken love.

The characters in Finding My Heart are extremely lively, cute and memorable. While they don’t talk real language, the emotions they express through the body language and the small speech bubble icons are very understandable and you’ll find yourself enjoying those little scenes and laughing on how cute this looks. The storyline is quite touching and won’t leave anybody indifferent.

The aim of Finding My Heart is to learn 6 different communication skills and use them to convince your girlfriend to get back together. At the start of the game you only have 1 skill – talking. But that’s obviously not enough. It’s funny to see how that doesn’t work with the hobo – click him and he’ll start talking, click your talking skill – and both of them will start talking not listening each other. That’s a perfect cartoonish and funny example how it often happens in real life, so you might even learn something from the game!

To learn new skills, you have to use those skills you already know in the correct order on different characters – every character has 1 skill for you to learn, so keep trying different combinations on different characters to get what you need. Once you get all the skills, go back to your girlfriend and use all your skills to win her heart again!

There are secret coins hidden throughout the game – a total of 5. Once you finish the game, click the “skip” arrow on the “The End” screen to go to the game shop, and there you can use your game coins to buy some funny stuff from the game. I recommend you looking at the Sketch Pad – how the game was created, it’s a fun thing to see. If you’ve liked the game characters, you can also get the Avatar Pack, Icon Pack, Desktop Image or Music Pack.

All in all, this is a great game, and is definitely recommended to everyone! You have nothing to lose – it’s free, it doesn’t take much time, and it’s really fun! Just load up the game and see if you like it.

Perfect Your Volleyball Serve, Perfect Your Great Outdoor Adventure Game Experience!

Some of the great outdoor games are no-brainers and require little or no skill. You just play and the fun is in the simplicity of the play. That’s a good thing for many and creates a very inclusive nature for great outdoor games. In many situations, that’s the right path to take.

But some of us need more of a challenge to make our great outdoor game adventures really rock. Take Volleyball as a case in point. In Volleyball, you need skills that take time and perseverance to develop.

Let’s break it down. In serving, it helps to know and understand your psychological mindset before you try to whip it over the net. Can you handle an aggressive approach, speed, power and yet maintain control? Or, is it better to be conservative, assured that you simply get that volleyball over the net in the first place?

For that brief moment in time, the server has complete domination of the game. Everyone is waiting and watching for the serve to get things going. To great degree, the serve determines how the rally is going to play out.

Serving is a skill that requires practice to perfect. But it’s so worth it. Being able to ‘tough’ serve consistently is a skill that serious players must have, no doubt about it.

Without this skill, their great outdoor game adventure in the world of volleyball is mere recreation, not true sport. And that’s fine, if that’s personally satisfying. In the world of great outdoor games, there is a game for everyone.

If you feel the need for speed and performance, read on to make it happen.

Learn to serve under pressure. Practice serving repetitively to develop the experience so that you don’t suffer the infamous volleyball ‘choke’ under pressure. Scrimmage in practice and keep score. Penalize a player for missing serves, not to be mean, just to imitate the pressure of real game play.

Make sure to keep the pressure on the servers during every match. When a team plays competitors that are under matched, use this status as an opportunity to work on serving. It’s easy to lose focus and not keep your head in the game when the opposing team isn’t as challenging, but don’t allow your team to fall into this trap. Always care about your serve.

Serving could be the most under developed skill in Volleyball and that’s just plain wrong. When your team has truly unstoppable servers, your team is on its way to being entirely unstoppable on the court and to dominating your volleyball game.

Volleyball is one of the great outdoor games that thrives on this kind of healthy domination. It makes the sport challenging and more fun for those of us who need more action and athleticism in our great outdoor adventures. Served up right, volleyball belongs in the great outdoor games hall of fame, don’t you agree?
