Want to Save Some Money? Play Some Free Browser Games!

With many console games costing hundreds of dollars and game titles usually starting out at 40-80 dollars, a good alternative is to play any of the thousands of free online games. You can forgo the need to purchase a brand new HDTV and the latest audio equipment and simply use any modern computer with internet access to entertain yourself for hours.

Finding Good Quality Games

Often the best way to find the most entertaining games is word of mouth and often Google searches yield excellent search results. I find the best quality games are often found on games portals as they pre-screen their games for variety, quality and hold them to high standards.

Another option is bloggers that are often quite passionate about the newest and most entertaining games available so they are often a very useful resource when searching for new games to try out. There are thousands of these blogs available that are updated daily so I would recommend searching out one that appeals to you.

Game Portals

Online game portals have achieved broad success as a result of increased broadband connections among consumers but even dial-up modems are able to play many of these games due to the small file size of them. The increase of internet access speed also means that game developers are able to create higher quality games with better graphics and game play. Fans of all genre, type and flavor of game will be able to quickly find some entertaining ways to spend their time.

An example of an immensely popular browser-based game portal would be Miniclip which has upwards of 43 million unique visitors on their website per month. These larger portals often feature localization in multiple languages such as English, Korean, Italian, Chinese, Spanish, Polish, Portuguese and French.

Other very large and successful Game Portal sites would include Yahoo Games, Kongregate, Newgrounds and Armor Games. Millions of users every month visit these websites playing a variety of games ranging from chess to zombie games.

Variety is one of the most compelling features of these free portals so you will often find categories such as Action, Adventure, Girls, MMO, Racing and Multiplayer games. As well you can find entire game portals devoted solely to one type of category such as Racing Games or Dressup games for example.

Game Formats

The most popular format used for these games would be Adobe Flash Player. This format has become very well distributed across the desktop market resulting in market dominance. Adobe makes the claim that 98% of US web users have their software player installed. Also one of the best aspects of Flash is it is not specific to PC or Mac, but usable by both types of personal computer.

Other types of formats online browser games can include Html, Java, Shockwave, Unity and the newer Microsoft Silverlight format. Most new computers do not come pre-installed with the above game players so when you attempt to play a game without the appropriate software, it will often auto install the software for you.

Popularity

Numerous studies from research groups such as Deloitte & Touche have released reports detailing the surging popularity of online games. A five fold growth prediction was touted recently in one of their white papers. Developing nations such as China, India and Latin America are poised to introduce millions more of gamers which will drive the demand for even more games and games portals.

Summary

Browser games only require an internet connection and a web browser so why not give them a try, its one of the fastest growing game markets. They are fun, unique, often innovative and the best part they are all available at no cost at all.

How to Choose Your Ultimate Shoes That Will Get You Oozes of Compliments a Day

Buying the right shoes is an investment.

An investment in your foot health, but not just!

It’s also an investment in yourself, your look and the presence you project.

Why?

Because the shoes you wear say a lot about you.

They reflect who you want to be and what you want to show the world.

Different shoes will distinguish you,

Redefine you,

Tell a lot without saying a word.

We all know our self-image also depends on what we wear, and we change it,

And we can change how others perceive us.

But how can we find the right shoes to match our feet as well as our nature?

When you buy new shoes:

- Wait until the afternoon to try on new shoes – your feet tend to swell during the day, especially when it’s warm outside.

- Put on the right pair of socks, comfortable enough to wear with shoes.

- Our body is unsymmetrical, and often, one foot is slightly bigger than the other. Buy the shoes that fit well with the bigger foot.

- Always try out both sides, right and left. Finding out, much later that one side fits well, while the other is extremely painful, is not a great idea.

- Walk around. See how you feel. Enough room for your fingers? Check there is enough distance between your longest toe, and the tip of the shoe.

- If you’re not comfortable, do not presume the fit will improve in time. Find the shoes that’ll perfectly slip on your feet and make you feel wonderful from the second you put them on.

- Feel the inner part to check if any stitches or bumps might cause inconvenience, irritations or blisters.

- Test the soles. Are they strong enough to protect your feet? Try walking on solid, rough surfaces to see how resistant the soles are.

So, now that you know how to pick the right shoes without compromising on your comfort, it’s time to pay attention to design.

Here are a few style-selecting tips to add that life-changing presence:

How to choose your ultimate shoes that will double your presence in life and get oozes of compliments a day and remind you how special you are.

- Pick the shoes that will match your look and challenge your personality. Encourage a profound change in your style.

- Choose unique colored shoes that will fit your wardrobe and wonderfully upgrade your overall appearance. Colors add freshness and vibrancy.

- Pick the shoes with that intriguing design. You will probably be the only one wearing them in miles. Careful. Unique shoes draw the attention of complementing strangers in the street.

Prepare for ‘where did you get those.’

- Pick the shoes with quality, strong soles, and soft body, because when you’re comfortable, you’re beautiful.

- Search for hand-crafted shoes and feel proud supporting local manufacturing.

You can’t miss fine craft. Quality radiates with the prestige that declares who you are and what interests you.

- Keep away from overused trends. Purchase shoes you can wear for years.
