How To Play Video Poker
Video Poker is a popular game that can be played in casinos across the world, or alternatively at home on your PC, through an Internet connection. The rules are very straightforward and involve the player attempting to get the highest combination of cards possible in order to win money. In this respect it is much the same as a normal game of poker, minus the interaction with other players. Of course, techniques used in a physical game of poker, such as bluffing, will be irrelevant here.
The game of Video Poker begins when the player inserts credit (either tokens, tickets or money) into the machine and presses the ‘play’, ‘deal’ or ‘draw’ button. A hand of five cards will then be electronically ‘dealt’ on the video screen.
The Video Poker machine also has buttons with ‘hold’ written on them, and players should now choose which cards to hold and which to discard. For the cards the player wishes to keep, the ‘hold’ buttons should be pressed so that they light up. The player can choose to keep any amount of cards they wish, from all to none.
After the player has chosen which cards he or she wishes to keep, they should press ‘deal’ or ‘draw’, at which point any new cards are dealt if desired. The game is now completed, with the Video Poker machine scanning the hand to see if it matches any of the winning hands listed in the payment schedule.
Typically, the minimum winning hand on a Video Poker machine is a pair of jacks with the prize money increasing for each better hand. A common list of winning hands begins with jacks or better, moving on to two pairs, three of a kinds, straights, flushes, full houses, four of a kinds, straight flushes and finally royal flushes. It goes without saying that the payment schedule can vary from machine to machine, so that experienced players are able to choose the most profitable ones every time.
Once the initial round has finished, the player can either choose to stay on in an attempt to increase their earnings, or press the ‘collect’ button to retrieve any credits that have been won. Further, some versions of the game allow the player a chance to double their winnings, in which case a further game is played. There are also variations between individual machines, with some virtual decks including wild cards and other varying elements to increase playability.

Nintendo Wii – Has Just Completed One Year
Can you believe that it’s already been a whole entire year since the Nintendo Wii was released? In fact, at the time of this writing, it has now been officially more than one year! Feels like just yesterday, doesn’t it? Although the Wii has been out for more than a year, it doesn’t officially make it the oldest “next-gen” system. That spot actually belongs to the Xbox 360, which in comparison, is over two years old. The incredible thing about the Nintendo console is it’s undeniable success, and how fast it’s achieved it. To give you an idea of the measure of it’s success, although the Xbox 360 was released one year before the Wii, the Wii had officially passed it’s sales this year!
The success that this system has seen up to this point, has been completely unprecedented. Even after more than a year, you would still have trouble finding this console in the stores – After a whole year! As soon as the system is put on store-shelves, there’s someone there to snatch it right up! Because of the hectic demand for the console, it may not seem to practical too purchase the system in person, unless of course you don’t mind playing the potential “chase and catch” game. If you do though, then shopping online for the popular video game system may be your best bet of grabbing it. So, over the course of the year, the Wii has been in high-demand, and there are no signs of it slowing down. Although this may not be great news for consumers that are looking to purchase the system, it most certainly is great news for the consoles manufacturer, Nintendo.
Until recently, video games in general have been geared more towards the “hardcore gamer”, leaving little room for those casual games that might entice people with less interest in video games to give it a try. The great thing about the system though, is that it essentially bridges that gap. It brings together both hardcore and casual gamers alike. Wii sports, a game packaged with the Nintendo console, has you swinging your arms, and moving your body. Instead of using complicated button combinations to play a game of tennis for example, with the Wii, all that is required of you is the motion or swing of the controller, making it easy for people of all ages to enjoy.
Just because the Wii may seem to be simple in controls doesn’t mean that you can’t play games that are more complicated. The console provides titles for both the hardcore and casual gamers. Those that have played games for several years will quickly warm up to titles like Super Mario Galaxy, The Legend Of Zelda, Red Steel, Call Of Duty, and the list goes on. Just the opposite, those that are new to the gaming scene will find fun in games like Wii Sports, Wii play, Big Brain Academy, Wii Fit, and the list goes on and on. Looking at the systems software library, it’s not hard to notice the diversity of games, thus making it easier for consumers of all ages to find what they like.
The reason for Wii’s massive success is because it has managed to reach audiences beyond those that have normally been playing games. It has simplified controls, yet at the same time is using cutting-edge technology. The software available has expanded beyond titles that are available for the hardcore gamers only. It has games that can be played online at no additional cost. Most importantly though, it’s user-friendly. It’s these combinations, and more, that have made the Wii the must-have video game system for more than a year.
Free Downloads For Psp – 3 Facts Your Need To Know
The Sony PSP, or PlayStation Portable, is the hottest portable gaming system on the market. The system has stunning three dimensional graphics and can play PSP proprietary movie discs. For many years people who owned portable gaming systems had to put up with graphics far inferior to that of television based consoles. With the Sony PSP the graphics are very high quality and you can watch popular new movie releases. It is like a console, but portable, with no concessions in exchange for the portability.
Thanks to the Internet, it is possible to download Sony Playstation Portable games, PSP format movies, and even home made videos or movies from your handycam. The most amazing part is that you can find free PSP downloads that are totally legal. There is a large number of sites that offer free downloads for PSP, but many of them are not worth your time. If you are interested in finding free PSP game downloads and free PSP video downloads, you should make sure that you use a site that doesn’t have a lot of broken links or non-working files. There are some important things to look for to make sure you are using a free PSP download site that is not going to waste your time.
What To Look For in a Free PSP Download Site
One of the first things that you should do is to look for a free PSP downloads site that offers you a private membership with no recurring fees. You will most likely have to pay a one time membership fee, but this is extremely beneficial because having a private membership with the quality free PSP download sites ensures you get quality files to download on an unlimited basis.
With the free PSP download sites that have a private membership, members will tend to check the files for viruses and spy ware, also these membership sites take time to check that there are no dead links and files are working. This will save you a lot of time since you don’t have to do wade through many of the dead links or download broken finals that some of the inferior PSP download sites have. The one time signup fee is really nothing compared to the amount of time you will save and headaches you will avoid by getting excellent quality files and avoiding viruses.
The second thing to look for is a fast file download. Some Sony Playstation Portable download sites are so slow that you will find it impossible to download a full game or movie in any reasonable amount of time. The next thing to look for is a fast responding and professional customer support team. Customer support can help you with questions about downloading or using your software, and help get rid of broken links and bad files quickly.
How To Download and Transfer Your PSP Files
Downloading and using the free game and movie downloads for PSP is quite easy. The first step is to download the file you have selected to your computer, once that is done you connect your PSP to your computer with a USB cable, you then transfer the file to your PSP in the appropriate location. Once the file is transferred, go to the appropriate category selection on your PSP, for example if you downloaded and transferred a game you would go to the game directory and select the downloaded file, likewise with movies and music etc.
Using the free PSP download sites is easier than getting in the car and heading down to the video games store to hire a game. The age of convenience is certainly upon us and the fact that downloading playstation portable games and movies is cheaper than the video store is icing on the cake.

The Top 3 Classic Must-Have Nintendo Wii Games
Have you ever been talking to someone about movies and heard “Oh man, how can you not have seen it?” when a classic movie comes up? Real classic movies are the kind of movie that is so good that everyone should see it at least once. Video games are the same way. With each console or handheld, a particular crop of games rises up above the rest: the true masterpieces and classics that define a console or a genre of game. Some of these are timeless classics like Super Mario Bros. For the NES and others are groundbreaking innovations that do something no other game has before like the first Pokemon Red and Blue games. Here’s a list of the truly classic games that every Wii owner should have in their library:
1. Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess – In my personal opinion (sorry Ocarina of Time fans) Twilight Princess is where the series hits its peak. Link has to set out on an epic adventure across light and shadow versions of Hyrule to fight an ancient evil that’s sweeping the land in darkness. This installation in the series has a sort of gritty realism that weighs on you as you play, you can really feel how important it is that Link save the world while you play.
2. Super Mario Galaxy – Galaxy takes the old Mario formula that we’ve come to know and love and throws it a curveball. Classic free-roaming Mario open world gameplay thrown into the middle of space. Mario has tons of new worlds to explore, bad guys to beat, and challenges to conquer as he chases Bowser through space to rescue the princess and the castle. Galaxy adds so much to the classic Mario formula that there are hours and hours of replay value built straight into the main story (even more if you like 100% completion on games).
3. Wii Sports – Wii Sports came bundled with the launch consoles, but if you bought any of the newer models, you really missed out! Wii Sports was a fun game that let you try your hand at boxing, bowling, tennis, baseball, and golf. It let you really get a feel for all of the features of the Wii and was surprisingly fun for being a piece of software that was packaged with the console. It’s a little tougher to find, but just looking at the hours I’ve spent perfecting my bowling throws alone, the game is 110% worth picking up if you have the chance.
Those are the top three titles that every Wii owner should have in their cabinet, but there are dozens upon dozens of amazing games for the Wii available today. If there are any of these three games that you don’t have on your shelf, do yourself a huge favor. Go out and pick them up today at your local game retailer (or online store) and I can guarantee that you’ll be glad you picked up these amazing classic games.
