How to Clean PC Gaming with Vacuum Cleaner

It is very important to keep your PC computer clean! One of the easiest ways to keep your computer clean and prevent breakdowns is to vacuum out the dust.. Cleaning the PC gaming computer components, fans, keyboard, and case is usually never done the entire life of the computer. Depending on where the computer is located is the key to how often it should be cleaned. Also, a quick visual inspection will help in determining whether or not it is time to pull out the vacuum and suck out the dust.

After vacuuming the dust out of the different parts of the computer, the computer will run cooler and more efficiently. Heat is the biggest foe of the computer. That is the reason that computer CPUs, power supplies, and computer cases have fans. In addition, the computer case is designed with cooling vents allowing airflow throughout the case. Fans and case vents always collect dust and should be kept clean. Be aware that dust can damage and ruin the fans over long periods of time. One can tell when the fan is starting to go bad when it begins to make noise. If the fan is making noise when the computer is turned on it may be too late to clean. The fan should be replaced. If the fan stops working, it may not take long afterwards that your computer quits working due to overheating. Again, all of this can be avoided by simply sucking the dust off of the computer. Note that the dust should be lifted off the computer with a vacuum and not spread around by wiping.

According to vacuum expert at bestvacuumcleaners20.co.uk where you can find the best vacuum for 2020 in UK, A computer vacuum is an excellent tool in keeping your computer clean. It is designed for the PC computer. Do not use an upright vacuum nor any household vacuum used on carpets and floors. It is highly recommended that the correct tools be used to clean the computer as the motherboard, hard drive, CPU, and add on boards are sensitive to static electricity. Not only can you use a computer vacuum to clean the computer, but having a vacuum to clean the keyboard is a bonus. The keyboard is in the open and is subject to a falling object. If you are like me, you are attached to your keyboard. My keyboard has been with me over the ownership of several computers. Keeping the keyboard in good working condition by vacuuming out the junk that falls through the keys will ensure a long life for a favourite keyboard. Read More

Just go through all below points and create your own action plan starting from getting the overview of main baby games online to analyzing your kids’ needs to finding a proper balance between different children’s activities.

1. Get the big picture of all free online games and paid interactive games for babies

Are you looking for really cute baby games online? Are you typing into a search engine several different phrases trying to find something that is appropriate for your small one? There is a plenty of different free and paid games and other online activities for toddlers.

Our advice is to use a structured approach in order to simplify the whole process of choosing best of the best for your small beloved kid! Save your time and read our simple guide: Games for Toddlers – Getting Started to get a big picture of games for toddlers landscape, and then just follow the simple steps indicated below.

We would like you to remember that there are many other options than just online games for kids to be chosen from, if you want to support the development of your child and engage him/her in a clever way. Check other sections of this website about painting games and cooking games for toddlers.

2. Determine your child’s needs

Take into account the following 5 main factors:

Age: infant, toddler, pre-schooler, older kid?
Time to be spent: short 10 – 15 min games or the ones requiring longer concentration on the activity?
Talent/skills to be developed: painting, shape or numbers recognition, reading, social skills, manual skills, creativity, imagination?
Number of players: can your child play independently or does he/she need your support?
• Can the whole family be involved? Does the game enhance interaction with other people?
Safety: is this online game appropriate for the age? Make sure that the game is not violent. BE CAREFUL with websites which contain pornography related pictures or links which potentially can redirect your child to porn websites.

3. Analyse reviews and parenting forums

It seems to be time consuming but it is not! Just google it! There are hundreds parenting websites and forums which can be trusted. All parents want all the best for their kids and they would not recommend to other parents online games for baby that are not appropriate or can be even dangerous for emotional development of your kid.

However, be careful and just do not type into Google the most popular phrases such as “online baby games free” or “online free baby games” as you are going to be overloaded by dozens of not very useful pieces of information and some websites with “messy” content – just simply aggregating different games for toddlers that are not necessarily worth even checking.

We recommend to check out Metacritic website for finding some reliable reviews.
Have a look at some research and download a free report: Children, Teens, Media, and Body Image to broaden your knowledge on potential media impact on your child.

4. Search for the best online games for your baby

Prepare a short list of games which are the most interesting, engaging, and have great reviews. At this stage you can also create a simple matrix with all above-mentioned factors which you can use on the later stage of choosing the best game online for your kid. Use this tool always when you are searching on the Internet or planning to invest money in some product for your baby.

5. Match the best online games you have found with your child’s needs

Simply use your matrix and match a short list of games you have chosen with all factors you should take into account (see: Step 2).
Choose the best match. Still not satisfied? Repeat the previous stage in order to create customised search and find valuable opinions of other users. Always check customers’ reviews on trusted websites such as amazon.com or some parenting websites.

6. Find balance between online games for baby and other activities

Did you find the best online game for your kid? That is not the end of the whole process, which all good parents should follow. There are two additional steps: this one is about the importance of finding the proper balance between different activities in which your kid is involved.

Always combine online and other computer based games with different outdoor and indoor activities. Remember to check all options: there are great free resources online (check our guide) and also interesting relatively cheap applications or games and toys accessible.

Spend time with your toddler while singing action songs and using “fingerplays”. Find some interesting and unique activity for your older kids, such as creating figures from string. Engage the whole family in funny and learning board games or play together Xbox games for toddlers.

Get inspired and check out also our section about travel games, painting games, and cooking games and How to improve social skills of your baby? Most engaging baby games for girls and boys.

7. Track time spent on playing online games

We strongly advise you to create a simple system of tracking time spent on playing online games for baby. Observe your children and keep track of how much time they spend on the computer or iPad etc. Set priorities list and discuss it with a child. Of course you are responsible for setting all limits of your young one but try to explain every time the importance of finding balance between learning and fun games, and playing and other children’s activities such as homework, hobbies, sport training, meeting friends etc.

You can use simple visual solution such as Time Management Wheel (simply draw a circle on a piece of paper) which can be coloured by your small ones using pre-defined colours. Divide it into 5 parts (toddlers and pre-schoolers) or 7-10 parts (older kids depending on the number of different interests). Let’s assume that a pink colour symbolizes time spent on playing fun games. Ask your child to colour this part of the wheel and make sure that a child fully understands the meaning of it.

Try to subdivide a game part into smaller parts and teach your young one some basics of time management. Your kids should understand that when the whole game part is almost pink they should make a decision: should I play now? Should I wait a little bit and play later? Always try to choose learning games instead of games which are purely for fun such as baby Barbie games online.

Everything depends on your creativity – just create an agreement with your kids and be CONSEQUENT!

Jelly Splash Review – Challenging Game For Kids of All Ages

Jelly Splash is a really fun and challenging game for kids of all ages. The object of the game in Jelly Splash is to connect 3 or more of the same colored Jelly’s together. The more Jelly’s of the same color you connect to make a line gives you a higher score and a glowing jelly. If you can make a line with the glowing jelly, that entire row of jellies will disappear and you will get a higher score.

To move to the next level you need to complete the requested task. Some of the requested tasks are: Reach 12000 points in 15 moves, Clear all the dark slime in 12 moves, Bring 5 diamonds to the bottom in 18 moves. The game has 140 levels. Each area has 20 levels.

=&0=&

Jelly Splash is a very fun and entertaining game. It is a very challenging game at the same time. It’s like connecting a big jelly puzzle. I also like how you don’t have a time limit to complete each level so you can take as long as you want to finish a level. This is really good, especially when you’re having a hard time completing a level.

=&1=&

The cons of Jelly Splash are you don’t have lot of lives. You only get 5 lives in the game. In the higher levels when it’s much harder, 5 lives can go very quickly and you have to wait 29 minutes to get another life.

=&2=&

I highly recommend this game for anybody who likes puzzles and challenges. This game can be very addictive and frustrating at the same time. There are 140 levels of fun Jelly puzzles waiting for you.

Devilian Online Action MMORPG Review

Devilian Online is an Action MMORPG developed by Bluehole Ginno Games, and published by Trion Worlds in North America on December 2015.

If you live in North America, then you can download the steam version of Devilian. Otherwise, get it on their own platform which is Glyph.

Currently, there are 5 gender-locked classes. These are Berserker, Canonneer, Evoker, Shadow Hunter, and Tempest (Latest). Both have its own unique specialties.

Check out our first look video:

The Classes

The Berserkeris basically the tank in the game, he is strong, agile, and very powerpul melee class. If you want a tank in the PVP, then you might want to get him.

The Evoker is a wizard, or a ranged class, she is particularly good on AOE attacks that debuff several enemies at once, very powerful support.

The Canonneer is also a ranged class unit, which is good for those who can optimize her skills. To use her in his fullest, you have to be good at avoiding attacks, while doing your skills.

The Shadow Hunter is a versatile melee class that can also be ranged, he is a very sneaky class and can use invisibility as his skill.

The Tempest, I have not really seen a gameplay for this character, but she is basically a female Shadow Hunter, if not better on some categories. You cannot get her unless you paid $14.99 in the market.

Devilian Form

One of the unique features of Devilian is its Devilian form, all classes can transform into one. They are basically transformation, and use different experience level, skills, and almost nothing alike with their normal human counterpart.

However, there is a time limit to use them, so use them wisely. Filling the Devilian gauge may take a while, so better use them for bosses only.

Lousy Character Creation

If you are expecting to create a unique character here, do not bother. This is one of the most shallow character creation in the recent years. Everything is preset, and the only colors you change are your eyes and hair.

Your Devilian form cannot be customized, either, it is a shame as it seems to be a great opportunity to have a deep character creation But it failed miserably on that department, especially when most MMO today have at least sliders and other stuff you can do in your character creation. This is really disappointing.

Graphics and Animations

The graphics look good, but sometimes, it does not. You can definitely see that this game had been released few years prior.

Enemy models look good enough, and you only see them where you are, so each area almost has different enemies. But after a while, you would just see recycles of them in some areas too. Not that it matters though.

Player models, like mentioned above, are subpar, so do not expect to standout among others because once in a while, you will see someone that looks like you. Armor and weapons look identical most of the time.

Animation is okay, but not really great. But once you hit combos, it is satisfying to watch, especially when you are hoarded by several enemies.

Gameplay

Devilian is an Action MMORPG, the gameplay itself is not bad. Actually, the combat system is one of its strongest points, and it makes the game a whole lot easier. Grinding has never been this much satisfying to do. There is also no challenge whatsoever unless you get the attention of many enemies stronger than you, that is the only thing you will die in the game.

The quests, on the other hand, are the most boring ones I have seen. It is basically the same thing over and over again. It never changes at all. Good thing there is an autorun feature for the game, it makes the game a whole lot less boring, and more into action.

Dungeons, Boss battles, and PVPs

There are instanced dungeon you can play solo or grouped. In some place, you can easily find partners for dungeon crawling, but most of the time, you will be doing it sol. It is linear, and easy. You can easily finish it within 15 minutes. Most dungeons look aesthetically the same.

Boss battles on each dungeons are fun (same with the quest bosses), though sometimes I am mistaking another cool enemy to the real boss.

Loots drops are plenty so you can sell them a lot for coins. Better armors and weapons usually pop up every once in a while.

PVP feels like MOBA, probably because of its camera view. But truly it is just your generic PVP, wherein you have to capture points and win. Sadly, the PVP is very imbalance right now. If you are using melee, then chances are, you are dead within minutes because of the Evoker and Canonneer combo. They already nerfed it somehow, but it is still very hard to play as a melee class.

Talismans

Talisman is another unique feature of Devilian. It is a card system, which you can craft to put buffs on your characters. It is a nice touch, and definitely helpful for your journey in the world of Devilian.

You can also combine cards to make a stronger card, but looking for items so you can craft talisman is pretty rare to find, so stock up with cards until you find the best talisman for you.

Sounds and Music

The atmosphere and ambiance of the game fit well for each other. It is polished enough and sounds nice for the most part in Devilian. There is nothing really negative or positive to say about it.

PROS

+ Combat System

+ Autorun

+ Loot drops are always plentiful

+ Dungeons are pretty fun

+ Talisman is a nice feature.

CONS

– Trion Worlds is scarred by greedy reputations.

– Gender-locked classes

– Player creation is shallow and dumb

– Quest System is horrible

– PVP is not balanced (Could be a pro if fixed)

– Devilian is under utilize

So those are the pros and cons of Devilian! It is a decent game at first, but it gets tedious after you realize the game is not really the great and the quest system is horrible. Still, it is a fun game to place in short bursts.
