Christian Games – Will they ever be good?

untitled

Ever here a Christian say, “I’VE GOT A GREAT IDEA!!!  I bet a game about DAVID slaying GOLIATH will have all the churches TURN’T UP!!!”

…or if it wasn’t that it was some other Bible game designed to educate kids on moral principles.  While there may be a place and audience for it, don’t be surprised if your idea doesn’t take off any further than your church pews.

Many Christian game companies of the past have struggled because they missed the mark in target audience, authenticity, quality, or (the biggest one) fun.  We have no need to call out any specific games here because the web has already done a good enough job ridiculing the work of Christian game developers.

We here at SwordSharp.com believe that a great game has to first be just that, a great game.  The design must be good, the polish must be present, and the power must be evident.  If you try to design a game with a few church guys with no proven *game* development experience then, unless the Holy Spirit is designing the game for you your product will likely be as authentic as a suburban actor in a thug movie.

The team has to have the talent and experience to deliver a quality product.  The game needs to be demo’d and tested by your target audience.  Collect feedback and *don’t twist it to support your initial theories*.  If you’re going down the wrong direction, stop and change before you get too far down the wrong path.  Also, don’t feel like your idea *has* to be confined to the stories in the Bible.  It’s ok to do something different that people will enjoy and can be blessed by.  But whatever you do, don’t make your game *too different* such that you are no longer using best practices from existing popular games.  You *drastically* decrease your chances of success when you try to be *too* innovative.

While the hearts of those want to “spread good morals” are in the right place, know that stories with specific agendas in entertainment tend not to get mass success.  Try being real and relevant to your audience… and your audience *doesn’t have to be in high school or younger!*

So, will Christian games ever be good?  Well… wait til’ you see what SwordSharp.com has for you in 2015…

PlayStation Plus Prices Increase Across Multiple Regions

playstation-plus_55

PlayStation Plus has become a bit more expensive in various regions around the world, Sony has confirmed to Joystiq. “We slightly increased prices for PlayStation Plus in South Africa, Ukraine, Russia, Turkey and India regions due to various market conditions.”

Will these price increases affect prices in North America? Sony responded to that very question saying, “Currently, price adjustments are not being planned for PS Plus in the SCEA [North American] region.”

Sony’s confirmation of price increases comes shortly after a report was published by iAfrica that stated PlayStation Plus subscription costs were going to increase within 24 hours of email notifications sent to PlayStation Plus subscribers. Judging by the emails sent to these various regions, prices look like they increased a little over 50% of their original cost.

Using a vague “various market conditions” statement to justify an over 50% increase in price will probably not bode well for customers within these regions. Hopefully Sony can give these customers a better understanding of why they need to spend more for their PlayStation Plus subscription as they can’t simply say they can’t pay the additional costs due to “various wallet-constricting conditions.”

From GameFly.

 

PlayStation Plus subscription fees are on the rise in various regions, Sony confirmed. “We slightly increased prices for PlayStation Plus in South Africa, Ukraine, Russia, Turkey and India regions due to various market conditions,” a representative told Joystiq via email. “Currently, price adjustments are not being planned for PS Plus in the SCEA [North American] region.”

The confirmation follows a report from iAfrica that stated subscription costs were due to rise within 24 hours of email notifications sent to PS Plus subscribers. The emails reportedly stated that “the price of a three month subscription will rise from R145 to R219″ as of today ($12.88 and $19.46). The change represents a 51 percent increase in the three-month PS Plus prices. Additionally, a second email seemingly noted a change in the annual PS Plus costs in South Africa from R489 to R749 ($43.45 to $66.55, a 53 percent increase).

From Joystiq.

The MISeducation Of Jesus Christ, pt 2

Originally posted on B-Boy For Christ:

MISeducation

Hello all!

Hopefully someone read part one of this series.

Before I get on with part 2, I want to tell you why I am doing this. As a follower of Christ’s teachings, it really bothers me when people, a lot who claim to be Christian, and the others, just go with something without seeking the Word to see if it’s true. The one of the things that bother me most, is mis-use of scripture, worse off, people saying things that aren’t biblical, as if it was. They don’t know it, because they don’t open their bible. Like the phrase, “only God can judge me”… That is out of the book of Tupac, not any book in the bible. But that is a different post.

The one thing I want to point out today is the whole, “stop taking Christ out of Christmas” thing. I see it on bumper stickers…

The MISeducation Of Jesus Christ pt. 1

Sooooooooo…

…I admit. I’m getting a little bothered by some people dragging Jesus name through the dirt. It’s really tripping me out. One of the things that trip me out is that the same people who would get upset at us Christians about speaking Jesus, and say that we are forcing our beliefs on people, are the same people forcing their belief’s on people and dragging Jesus name in the dirt.

So what are they doing? You know, their blogs and FB posts about how Jesus isn’t real or that the white man made us black folk believe in a white blue eyed Jesus, slavery is in the bible and the white man tricked the Africans. People are putting an X in the name of Christ in Christmas, blah blah blah BLAH!

HENSE, “The MISeducation Of Jesus Christ”!

JESUS REAL NAME

Ok. So I came across a post from someone…

Halo: Reach Free for Xbox Live Gold Members

Halo: Reach free for Xbox Live Gold members

The release of Destiny on both PlayStation and Xbox platforms has most likely created a new generation of fans of the game’s developer, Bungie. If you happen to own an Xbox 360, you can pick up Bungie’s last Halo title, Halo: Reach, for free starting yesterday as long as you’re an Xbox Live Gold member.

Microsoft’s Games with Gold program has now made Halo: Reach available for free to all Gold members for the remainder of September. We’re sure many Xbox 360 owners have already played Halo: Reach quite a bit when it first released back in September 2010, but you just happen to be in the gaming minority who hasn’t played the title, you have until the end of the month to pick up your free digital copy of the game.

Giving It Your All

Have you ever been in the situation when your faith is on the line, when your on the last string of the rope and your trying fight to keep your faith? Your giving it your all. And it may take quite some time, but you never stop fighting and you truly are giving it your all.

Well, we all have a weakness in sinning and maybe you have repented over and over and you keep falling down. You may have been struggling your life in this sin? So we know, we don’t give it our 110% to stop the sin, we give probably 50%. How about we come at this problem at a different angle? Like your faith is on the line. So next time your in that sinning situation, think your faith is on the line and you need to give it all.
