Gaming tools

Gaming is much more than a hobby here in the digital age, it’s a lifestyle and, for a lucky few, it’s even a career. Given that you’re probably investing countless hours into developing your gaming skills, not to mention the financial investments you make on new upgrades to your gaming rig or the latest must-have peripherals, it’s likely that you take gaming very seriously indeed.  

If that is the case, there are numerous tools and resources out there that can enhance your gaming experience even further. No matter what type of player you are, whether you harbour pro gaming aspirations or prefer to spend your time playing in virtual casinos, here are the top gaming tools you didn’t know you needed.  

Game Booster Freeware 

Optimisation is the name of the game when it comes to playing eSports titles, even at an amateur level. Even budget model PCs or gaming laptops can be tweaked to operate like high-end gaming rigs if you’ve got a game booster to do the hard work for you. Plus, as the name suggests, game boosters are freeware, so you can download and install them free of charge.  

Razer, one of the leading gaming equipment brands, has released its own version of a game booster: Razer Cortex. It effectively analyses your existing PC settings in order to optimise them for whichever platform and game combination you’re using. And, when you’ve finished that particular game, you can start playing another and Cortex will continue to update your settings. 

Martingale Calculators  

Experienced iGamers will no doubt be familiar with the Martingale Strategy. This advanced betting strategy follows the assumption that the most effective way to recoup losses is to bet at incrementally higher amounts on losing wagers and bet half the amount on winning wagers.  

Now, we’re by no means saying that a Martingale strategy or, indeed, any other strategy will guarantee that you win at roulette. However, as the name implies, they will ensure that you play strategically.  

In the old days of brick-and-mortar casinos, players would need to calculate each aspect of the Martingale system mentally. However, here in the digital era, there are online calculators that will do most of the hard work for you.  

Game Engines 

If you’re looking to take the first steps into game development, you need to be using game engines like Unity or Unreal Engine. It’s well known that gaming is becoming increasingly more democratic, particularly as global communities are now springing up, filled with passionate gamers who are keen to advance their gaming experiences. Game engines offer the tools needed to create any 2D or 3D game, which can be released on a variety of platforms.  

VoIP 

Given that gaming communities are now so international, there’s a high chance that your closest gaming pals probably don’t live in your country, let alone your neighbourhood. When you’re playing games with friends, a must-have is a VoIP tool or app like TeamSpeak.  

Voice-over Internet Protocol tools allow you to chat in a secure manner with your gaming community, no matter where in the world they’re located. Plus, they have plenty of additional features, including data encryption, audio mixing and filesharing.
