Gaming Review: Poki.Com Online Games Website


Geek Alabama Gaming Reviews

I was contacted by someone over at Poki.com about reviewing their site!  This was last week and over the weekend I had a chance to head to their website and take a look at what they have to offer!  As you can see below, Poki has a wide variety of games you can play from!

You can play anything from sports games, games based on popular TV shows, MMO games, racing games, action games, games for girls, thinking games, board games, movie games adventure games, skill games, and a lot more!  Poki Games is the ultimate site for your free online games! Every adventure in their collection is completely free to play and tons of fun. From action to sports, and dress-up to strategy, they have the perfect game for you!

The Poki site hosts all types of online games. Everybody from advanced gamers to casual players will love their large selection. If you’re looking for a few minutes of easy fun, they have quick and simple challenges. For a deeper adventure, dive into one of their many difficult journeys. No matter how you like to play, Poki Games is designed to give you the perfect experience, every time!

All the games on Poki are completely free!  And there are no time limits meaning you play for a few minutes, and pay to continue playing.  The entire time you are at Poki, you won’t have to pay a dime!  So I played around with the website.  The first game I tried was the Zombie Truck Parking Simulator.  I wanted to play this game, but I got the message instead.  With Google Chrome not supporting NPAPI plugins, I could not play this game.

Then I tried another game called Parking Passion.  What I like is each game also comes with a walkthrough, often with videos, just in case you get stuck!

The only thing I did not like was those pop up advertisements.  I know they have to pay the bills, but I have an ad blocker, so all I see is a black screen.

Then I tried Football Heads: Champions League.  The game played really well on the McDonald’s wi-fi.

Then I tried Comic Stars Fighting 3.6, it was a cool game!

The website even gives you recommended games, which I liked!

The only problems I encountered with Poki was they will need to do something about those NPAPI plugins not working on Chrome, since many people use Chrome.  Otherwise, I enjoyed the games, and the walkthroughs that came with them.  All the games are voted up or down by the people.  And you can also zoom in or out, and share the games on social media!

If you need a break from the grind, play a game on Poki, you will love it!

Madden 15 Correctly Predicted Super Bowl 49

Well, I think we are in trouble now.  Because artificial intelligence is here, and getting better!  Hence, the 11th annual Madden video game simulator that ran before the Super Bowl and was posted on YouTube.  The video game simulator got the final score right.  It got the final touchdown pass from Tom Brady to wide receiver Julian Edelman right.  It got the second half Seahawks push right.  It got the Patriots being down 24-14 in the third quarter right.  And it correctly predicted the Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady.

With video game technology getting better and better, will we see betters out in Las Vegas use video games like Madden to make bets?  I guess we are closer to that happening!

Enjoy Playing Over 2,000 MS-DOS Games On The Internet Archive

Needing something fun to play this weekend?  You are in luck!  The Internet Archive released over 2,000 games that previously ran on floppy disks on MS-DOS back in the 1980’s and early 1990’s.  A team of volunteers converted the old games to work via Javascript plugin.  And you can now play classic games like the first Sim City, Prince of Persia, Stunts, Super Street Fighter, SimFarm, and the original Oregon Trail game!

The games should all work in your browser on updated versions of Chrome and Firefox.  Yes, you might find some bugs, and some games can only be played on a gamepad.  The best thing, all the games are free!  And you can download some of the games to play on your own computer!  I had some fun playing the original Oregon Trail game.  And sadly, I died!

Get Ready For The Rose Bowl By Playing Ducks Hunt


Geek Alabama Gaming Reviews

Remember the classic Nintendo game Duck Hunt?  Well, if you are wanting to relive the good ole days, Flat Miner Studios just made your day!  And this game is a great time waster at work!  The game is called Ducks Hunt, and it features the University of Oregon duck mascot flying around.  You have three shots to shoot down the duck.  And when the duck hits the ground, a Florida State Seminole football player rises up with the duck, and you hear the Seminole fight song, 16-bit style!

Ducks Hunt 1

The game is very simple, you have three footballs to shoot down a Oregon Duck.  And each duck shot down is worth 7 points.  If you waste too much time, or use up your three shots, you will instead see a referee waving no good.  My only gripe about the game is its a little too long when the duck is falling down and when the Florida State football player is holding up the duck.  Other than that, it’s a good game!  My question is this, will the game makers make another game featuring either elephants or buckeyes being shot down, if Florida State wins over Oregon in the Rose Bowl, I hope so!

The Internet Archive Got A Lot Cooler With Over 900 Playable Arcade Games


Picture1sdvs

Remember the 1980’s, when the only way you could pay the cool video games meant you had to go down to the local arcade, insert a quarter, and re-insert another quarter when it was game over?  Today, most arcades have been replaced with video game consoles.  But, the popularity of video game consoles did not stop the Internet Archive from creating the Console Living Room, where you can play many games from many classic consoles.  To access it, go to: https://archive.org/details/consolelivingroom

Now, the Internet Archive has brought in many classic arcade games, over 900 of them, and you can play them right on your computer.  The Internet Arcade is a web-based library of arcade (coin-operated) video games from the 1970s through to the 1990s, emulated in JSMAME, part of the JSMESS software package.  Containing hundreds of games ranging through many different genres and styles, the Arcade provides research, comparison, and entertainment in the realm of the Video Game Arcade.  And you don’t need any quarters to play along!  The Internet Arcade is a part of the JSMESS project, where it’s goal is to emulate as many systems as possible.

The game collection ranges from early “bronze-age” videogames, with black and white screens and simple sounds, through to large-scale games containing digitized voices, images, and music. Most games are playable in some form, although some are useful more for verification of behavior or programming due to the intensity and requirements of their systems.  Yeah, it’s not perfect, and there might be some bugs found.  But, this is really cool!  So, if you are bored and looking for something to do, go to The Internet Arcade.  To access it, go to: https://archive.org/details/internetarcade
