02 Dec Getting the Sorting Hat experience in person

A little background on Harry Potter J.K. Rowling sat down and wrote one of the most captivating fictional stories in the last two decades. Despite having several of her novels rejected prior to the Harry Potter series, she was still determined to deliver a work of art. It is from that determination that she wrote the eight-part series of Harry Potter, which was later developed into a movie.   The Harry Potter series revolves around Harry Potter, who lives with the Dursleys, Vernon, Petunia (who is his late mother's sister), and Dudley. They are referred to as 'Muggles,' which means that they are non-magical folk. Harry seems to live a rather ordinary life and is often picked on by the Durselys. Then, on his eleventh birthday, everything changes when he receives news to join Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry learns that he is a wizard!   Uncle Vernon tries everything in his power to stop Harry from joining the school, but he's nowhere near successful. This is the beginning of the story of young Harry and is told in the first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, which was adapted into a movie in 2001.   Joining Hogwarts and the Sorting Hat The quiz is supposed to tell you what house in Hogwarts you would belong to, based on certain questions you answer. There are four houses in Hogwarts, names after the founding members of the school; Gryffindor – got his name from Godric Gryffindor, Hufflepuff – got the name from Helga Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw – got the name from Rowena Ravenclaw and Slytherin – got the name from Salazar Slytherin.   As tradition states, during the first assembly at the beginning of every school year, the new students wear the Sorting Hat, which sings its special song, then proceeds to announce what house the student belongs to. The hat takes certain traits into consideration before placing the student in a specific house. Every house has its signature color, and the students bear similar characteristics.   The personality shown by students in Gryffindor is determination, friendliness, and valour, Hufflepuff students represent patience, loyalty, and dedication. Ravenclaw students show readiness to learn, are wise and creative. In contrast, Slytherin students portray the promise of great leadership, ambition, and bravery.   What you get from the quiz Like the Sorting Hat, the quiz might not give you results that are precise, and if you are younger, there is always the possibility that your thoughts and personality might change with age. You can always take the Pottermore quiz again and see if there is any change.   That being said, the quiz can determine positive traits of your character that you can develop on and grow with time. A student like Harry bore both traits of being in Slytherin and Gryffindor's house though he asked the Sorting Hat to put him in Gryffindor, where he became one of the bravest wizards.  ...

21 Dec Will Cyberpunk 2077 be the best game of 2020 or the best game of the decade?

The upcoming RPG Cyberpunk 2077 is being hyped as not only the best game of 2020, but some critics are already calling it the best game of the decade.   Is the hype surrounding the game warranted, and will Cyberpunk 2077 be ultimately named the best game of 2020?   Cyberpunk 2077 has not yet been released -- While it is impossible to say if either of these terms will be applied to Cyberpunk 2077 after its release, with several trailers and previews having already seen the light of day, it definitely looks promising.   After all, as both critics and fans are pointing out after watching previews of the game, the level of attention to detail in Cyberpunk 2077 is something few games have featured previously.   When you also include the exciting gameplay, the open world and the enormous customization options, it does seem possible Cyberpunk 2077 could be the game people are talking about for years to come.   Developed by CD Projekt Red -- The Polish game developer CD Projekt Red is known for its RPG game series The Witcher.   That series of games is on the lists of many gamers as the best RPGs ever created. This is why critics expect Cyberpunk 2077 to not only be as good as The Witcher but, considering it has been in development for eight years, probably even better.   CD Projekt Red also has a superb reputation among gamers as they are also the owners of the DRM-free games website That site has been known for years as being one of the few game distribution platforms that cares about its customers, and does everything it can to ensure they are happy with the games they buy.   The cyberpunk setting -- There are few games on the market that have a cyberpunk setting, which is why Cyberpunk 2077 is causing such excitement.   When you also consider the attention to detail Cyberpunk 2077 has received, and that the world it takes place in is unlike anything else in a computer game, this is a huge selling point for it to be named the best game of 2020. The teaser trailers and previews -- In the last few years, CD Projekt Red has released several Cyberpunk 2077 teaser trailers and previews.   All of them show an intricately detailed game, with weaponry, boss fights, animation, artwork and game mechanics that are beyond what is currently available in games.   Unless the game itself differs markedly from what has already been previewed, it seems apparent that Cyberpunk 2077 will give every other game released in 2020 a benchmark to beat that could be almost impossible.   Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on April 16th, 2020. You can buy Cyberpunk 2077 PS4, Xbox or PC. It is only then we will know if the game is truly as good as its hype....
