Garena – Connecting World Gamers

Chat and game with your friends using this gaming platform for Windows.

GAR-01Gaming is one of the biggest reasons behind computer sales. One of the biggest trends in gaming right now is the need to communicate with team mates within your gaming party. That’s one of the reasons why I like Garena. It’s a gaming communications platform for Windows.

Garena is a game platform similar to an instant messenger. Garena allows gamers to develop buddy lists, to chat with friends and to check on game progress and achievements. Gamers are able to form groups or clans, and chat with multiple gamers simultaneously through public or private channels. Garena has also provided a great GTalk platform which is useful for gamers to interact with.

Like other online game services, Garena uses Shells for a virtual currency. Gamers can create their own unique identity by customizing their avatar or changing their names. Users can also use Shells to purchase Gold memberships for instant access to the platform anytime, to create clans, or to buy themselves back in to the platform or to a game or clan.

Garena is a decent PC gaming platform. It allows you to not only play but to communicate with clans and hoards while you play with and against them. It’s a bit on the pricey side, however, as 3000 shells cost $60 USD, and Gold membership will cost you 1900 shells a year.

Information on what games are available and what they cost, over and above your gold membership fee are unclear, and not readily available on the site. Its difficult to understand what might be available and what it might cost.

Origin is the place where all EA games come together

Eager to monetize each of their product in every possible way, EA launched a download platform similar to Steam but bearing only their homemade products. Known as Origin, the product is just another barrier for the player in his attempts of installing and playing a game.

We stumbled upon this manager when we wanted to get our hands on the Mass Effect 3 demo. It was required in order to run the free demo on our computer. I have nothing against exclusivity, but Origin is an annoying service.

If you wondered where EA Download Manager has disappeared to, you’ll be happy to know that it is now known as Origin. For any new EA release, Origin is the place where you should stop at, as it acts as a catalogue and store for their new titles. Sadly, older games are not always available, which is a bit of a missed mark on EAs part. If you are looking for deals you might want to go elsewhere, as pricing is usually the same as in retail stores, although there are occasionally bargains to be found.

In terms of functionality, the service is slower than Steam and it suffers from an unfinished interface which makes the user facing problems in browsing the service. One great feature is the ability to play some streaming demos in your web browser through the GaiKai service, so you can try before you buy. But forget the big titles.

If you only care about finding EA games then Origin is all you could wish for. While streaming demos are very convenient, Origin is far from a one-stop shop, even for EA’s catalogue, as older games are not always available. Origin is certainly good at what it does, but doesn’t do enough to be the only game manager you will ever need due to its forced exclusivity only on EA games.

Joost also offers branded entertainment services through its partnership with RedLever, a state-of-the-art, global studio specializing in developing and producing brand-integrated content for the Web. And as a standalone business unit, Joost will benefit from a better-defined, more distinct and expanded role in the video marketplace. The new unit will concentrate on leveraging its core strengths in three primary areas:

– Owned and operated Joost.com which includes pre-roll, in-banner and site skinning capabilities among;

– Exclusive partnerships including exclusive site and inventory representation as well as exclusive content; and

– Premium relationships which includes but not limited to pre-roll and display network, in-banner videos and Joost distributable player

Joost will continue to focus on building its premium video network but will now also increase its exclusive audience and global reach across it’s owned and operated Joost.com, and will continue to sign exclusive site representation deals with leading video and entertainment sites. The new unit will improve its market visibility as an online, brand-centric video provider of choice, and will be able to react even faster to client needs and dynamic market changes.
