Sequoia Trees

This image is taken from www.calrma.com for informational purposes only
Sequoia Trees are the tallest trees in the world (Maybe they are the tallest living organisms in the world, but I'm not sure about that). They can grow up to 87 m and their width can reach 34 m. It is estimated that the world's oldest sequoia trees are 1800-2700 years old. That's why, each of them should be considered as one of the world wonders individually. Thanks to the recent precautions, these trees are protected in national parks in the west coast of the USA. These giant trees' name is originated from a famous Cherokee Indian - Sequoyah although some people claim this is not the case. In the Cherokee language, Sequoia means Giant Redwood Tree which clearly shows the origin of the name of these trees.
It may seem awkward to love trees for someone who lives in urban areas, but in these days, we actually should love every creature much more than we have loved before, because if we do not, we will hand down our children a corrupted nature which the life will not be present, so let's all protect the nature and love the environment we live in, because building bigger buildings and building shopping malls, shopping centers will not make our life better and more luxurious. That's all I can say about this topic, because I know that most of the people will continue to destroy nature until the environment is totally depleted. However, I believe that little things all together can change everything, be safe...

OpenGL is a software package consisting of libraries which are callable from many computer languages to create 2D, 3D computer graphics applications. It is basically consisting of functions you can call when you write your programs and because you call these functions, you do not have to deal with every detailed geometric calculations, OpenGL does them for you, so what you have to deal with is just thinking your program's general features, structure, and flow. Thus, OpenGL creates a level of abstraction and makes your life easier.
With OpenGL, you can draw points, triangles, cubes, curves, surfaces etc. and you can manipulate these objects by pressing buttons, mouse clicks etc. Therefore, you can create animations with OpenGL. I met OpenGL like two weeks ago, so I am not an expert, but I can say that it really impressed me because of its usability, easiness etc. so in later times, I'll try to share some basic OpenGL programs created by myself. Take care yourselves, bye :)

La lettera di italiano

Cara Anna,

Sono qui per affari e studiare ma sono stufo cosi voglio ritornare alla casa mia. Voglio vivere al paese che non ci sono i divieto e la gente vivono liberamente. Ciao, ci vediamo presto.

Counter Strike Global Offensive

This image is taken from http://steamcommunity.com/ for informational purposes only
I met Counter Strike games in 2002, and till then if I find free time, I try to play and enjoy them. First Counter Strike games were very enjoyable and I think very successful for its genre. However, I have a doubt to buy Counter Strike Global Offensive because I had a fear that this one will not be as much fun as former games but then I decided to go for it. After playing 2 weeks (I bought it 2 weeks ago from now), I can say that developers really did a great job. First of all, you can still feel playing the same old Counter Strike games, plus there are some new game types which are very enjoyable. For example, in my opinion, "Arms Race" game type is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen in a game because it is super fast and fun to play and it teaches how to use different guns effectively. Also, "Demolition Mode" is one of the game types which includes bomb planting in small maps. That's why, you have to be fast and you have to know how to hide in these small maps. If you do not want to play these new types and just want to play classic style, you can find many community servers dedicated to classical gameplay of Counter Strike.
To sum up, if you grow in an internet cafe :) or if you really love FPS games, I'm sure you will find this game fun, take care and have fun... Steam Link

Sleepwalking is a movie released in 2008 which tells us about the story of a broken family consisting of a child, a mom and an uncle. Tara portrayed by AnnaSophia Robb, is one of the main characters who lives with her mom (Joleene), portrayed by Charlize Theron, and her mom's boyfriend until cops came and arrest him. After that, she and her mom had to move to Tara's uncle James, portrayed by Nick Stahl, who lives alone and keeps a quiet life till they came... If you want to spend your lazy sunday afternoon by just lying back and being alone in silence, you should watch this movie. Its story and its fluent mood will relax you. Furthermore, you will be amazed by soundtracks and acting performances, so I highly recommend you to give this movie a chance. IMDB

LEGO Batman The Video Game

This image is taken from en.wikipedia.org
LEGO Batman is the first LEGO video game I have ever played. I think it was 2010 when I first played with my sister. Yeah, that's true :) LEGO games can be played with two players on a same computer on a same keyboard. Actually, it is much more fun like this because LEGO games are designed in such a way that cooperation is essential, so both players do something and have fun together.
Anyway, I think LEGO Batman is one of the masterpiece of TT Games and after I played LEGO Batman 2, I can say that first one is better imao :) You may think that I'm a guy who does not like games following the first one but that is not true. I think Prehistoric 2 is better than the first one :)
If you want to play LEGO games, if you grow up by building LEGOs and if you love to smash things, this game is essential for you. I'm sure you'll be addicted to LEGO games after play this one. Have fun!

I heard Hawaii from documentaries when I was a kid, then my interest to it has increased after I watched Lilo & Stitch. As you know, Hawaii is a state of the USA and maybe the smallest one. It is located on the middle of the Pasific Ocean and it consists of lots of islands. Honolulu is the capital of Hawaii and there are lots of active volcanos which created that islands long time ago. If you do not know Hawaii and read this, do not be afraid or misunderstand the environment. Hawaii is one of the most beautiful places on the planet and there are so many touristic places. If you go to Hawaii some day, post your comments here so that we all share our Hawaii experiences. p.s. Link

Heroes of Might and Magic Online

This imake is taken from blog.heroes-online.com
There was on ad on a website saying "The best MMO game of all time" then I saw that it is Heroes of Might & Magic :) I had known Heroes series before although I had not played too much. Everyone knows that Heroes series is one of the pioneers of its kind and it is really fun to play. How about online version of it? Will it be good, better? To answer of all these questions, I had to wait till October 3 2014, after a year I saw the ad, since the game was close beta at that day, so only a few selected players could play it, but now I can play it too, so I can share my experiences here:
First of all, if you are a heroes fan, you will absolutely love this game, same game, same graphics but online version, so you can share your journey with other players, talk, chat, laugh etc. :) Secondly, this game does not force you to sit front of computer and play all day. If your troops are gone, you are done for today. Third one is support team listens to you and immediately reply your questions. Although the game has still bugs in it, support team deals with it and tries to fix it in the first maintainance. Finally, if you are a non-coiner, you can enjoy the game by doing quests, chatting with your friends and helping other players. On the other hand, if you are a coiner, you can purchase powerful stuff and play to be the best, so both sides can enjoy the game from their perspective. I hope you guys enjoy the game as much as I do. I'll see you there :) Game Link

Python Classes, Inheritance & Polymorphism

This image is taken from stackoverflow.com
In my article on this blog called "Python", I have discussed some aspects of Python programming languages. I said that Python is great for novice programmers, it is easy to learn, it encourages clean coding and I still behind what I said before :) Later days, I improved my Python experience and designed a few basic classes, implemented inheritance and polymorphism in those classes. As a result, I saw that unlike C++, Python classes are so much easier to implement and design. You do not have deal with virtual keywords and you do not have to care about which data type you use, because as you know Python is dynamically typed language. Thus, if you deal with Python some day, you will notice that it is a great programming language and your mind will compare it with other programming languages without your will, thanks...

Bridge to Terabithia

The image is taken from www.fanpop.com
The movie changed my life, the movie changed my life expectations, the movie changed my feelings towards everything, the movie changed me...
Bridge to Terabithia is an outstanding book written by Katherine Paterson based on a true friendship which we cannot find in our lives even one slice of it. The movie is filmed based on the book and directed by Gabor Gsupo. It was released in February 2007 and DVDs are available in stores.
As I said, the movie is based on true and pure friendship. However, this friendship is mixed with some fantastic features which makes the movie so special. I do not want to give you any spoiler about the movie but I'm sure that after you watch the movie you will realize that monetary things in your life does not worth anything, but the only remaining thing in your life will be friendship. I hope you can watch this movie, and take same pleasure like I did. Have a nice day... IMDB Link

Pokemon Trading Card Game

This image is taken from odofaction.com
On these days, I'm into Pokemon Trading Card Game, because I'm bored playing same games again and again, then I decided to search different genres. Then, I found Pokemon TCG. At the first glance, the game does not welcome you with amazing graphics and amazing game animations. However, playibility and fun of the game is just amazing. You can learn the game in a few minutes, then you can build your own pokemon decks by earning player tokens, buy stuff from shop by using these tokens and challenge other online players and add them as friends. Because of all these reasons, the game is worth to play. At least, you should give a try. By the way, although the game has a shop, real life money does not make a huge difference on this platform, you can easily gain tokens by playing the game and defeating online players, so if you are looking for a challenging game, this game is perfect for you. Have fun :) Game link

Napoleon Total War

This image is taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Napoleon:_Total_War
Another game of famous Total War series which is released in 2010 after his older brother Empire Total War. Although the game interface is similar to his brother Empire Total War, there are some aspects of the game different from older games. For example, instead of a great campaign, the game has little sub-campaigns which happen in different regions of Europe such as in Spain, Italy etc. Also, I have to state that I did not experience any problem such as "Napoleon Total War has stopped working" which I get a lot when playing Empire Total War. As a result, this game seems to be an improved and bug fixed version of Empire Total War. However, I do not say that it is a complete and playable for hours game, rather it seems a mini game released after Empire Total War, but if you are a Total War fan like me, I'm sure that you will enjoy the game as much as I did...

Online Gaming and Some Critical Observations

Online massively multiplayer gaming is one of the hot areas in gaming industry and there is really huge profit there. However, is making a multiplayer game and wait people to play them a good idea? Of course not. To attract people, there are some advertising strategies. First of all, using social media and giving ads to social platforms are effective ways. Lots of people spend most of their time in social media platforms, so attracting people and making them play your game on social media environments is much more convenient than giving TV commercials. Secondly, do not bother players with e-mails. This technique is used some of game companies and honestly I hate these mails, because if I find your game fun and worth to play, I can play any time, you guys do not have to bother me with these junk mails. Finally, if you are game developer, you should not miss game conventions and game jams for advertising purposes. Either amateur or professional, you can register and attend to these game events and you can show your game(s) to everyone interested in.
This image is taken from: www.forbes.com
Apart from advertising techniques, there are certain criterias that should be in and should not be in your game. First of all that came into my mind is do not make your game *f2p and *p2w at the same time. At first, people may be attracted to your game because of f2p feature. However, later they can realize that they have to pay to continue playing your game. This may result in huge amount of loss in your player number, so do not treat them as your customers, treat them as fellow gamers. Another thing is that do not make a game that you do not want to play. After you finish development stage, play your game yourself with your close friends. If you get enough fun out of it, people may like it as well. Also, this stage may be considered as closed beta and help you to find bugs and correct them in earlier stages. Last factor I want to mention in this article is that keep your game up to date. Creating new and special events like halloween, christmas, valentine's day and making special offers to players can keep your games alive and they can be much more fun. However, do not force players to sell things in these special occasions, just make your offers and watch the results and be fair to both coiner and non-coiner players in your games, cheers :)
(These article is written according to my personal experiences in some online multiplayer games, after I observe other critical issues, I'm glad to share in this blog)

*f2p: Free to play
*p2w: Pay to win

I met One Republic in 2007 while I was listening to "Stop and Stare". At first, I thought they were just another boy band and they want to get girls' attention, but then I realized something different and beautiful in their songs. They were not making songs with familiar background music. Instead, they play the instruments to produce different melodies. That appealed me and I continued to listen to their songs. By then, I discovered amazing songs of them such as "Apologize","All The Right Moves","Come Home","Say (All I Need)","Good Life" etc. Now I want to give you a link to the song "Good Life", and I'm sure that you will notice the difference between One Republic and other bands while you listen this song.

Imparare L'italiano

Io imparo L'italiano, non sono molto professionale ma ho coraggio di imparare L'italiano rapidamente. Molto grazie per Pelin Akalan perché lei ha molti talenti di insegnare L'italiano. Voglio finisco il mio articolo con la piu frase famoso mio: Ciao ci vediamo :)


Zach Braff

The image is taken from www.bbc.co.uk

I saw this man in "Scrubs" TV series first, his mimics, his behaviour and his acting were so real and unexaggerated that I feel that I'm watching some random guy on the street, it was so untouched... I thought I guess this man is funny in his personal life too, because the things he did on his performances cannot be explained with the word "acting", he just plays like himself, at least I felt that way. At first, I did not know that he made a couple of movies of drama genre, but then I watched "The Garden State", and I enjoyed every milisecond of that movie. Furthermore, this was a proof that he can play in movies with sad back story and full of emotion. In addition to these, he can direct movies, that means he will not disappear after he quits his acting career. I'm sure he will present us great movies from different genres.
You are one of my favourite actors Zach Braff, and I hope you stay like yourself all the time, do not leave us alone like my other favourite actor Robin Williams does... (p.s. Yeah he looks like Dax Shaperd but they are not related

Ailantus Altissima

This image is taken from:commons.wikimedia.org
Today I'm going to talk about one of my favourite topics, trees. I like all kind of trees in general, but some of them affect me more than I thought. Sometimes, when I smell the air while walking by a tree, I feel like I'm child again. Other trees reminds me different things. Maybe they remind me the trees of my childhood neighbourhood, maybe they just remind me their friends cut by people. The tree of this week is "Ailantus Altissima" or publicly known as "Tree of Heaven".
I don't know why do people call this tree "Tree of Heaven", because I cannot say that it smells good :) It is not a very beautiful creature. However, there is something in this tree that it makes me feel alive and energetic. If I were a tree, this tree would be the one I wanted to be. Maybe, this tree just reminds me myself, because it can resist hard conditions like I do :) It can adopt different environments like I do, it smells bad like... Anyway, I just wanted to tell you guys that I love this tree and I'll post photos of this tree after I take them, that's it for now, see you later :)

The Last of The Mohicans

I tried to watch this movie without subtitles, but I couldn't :) The accent was so British which I am not used to it, so I had to follow subtitles. Unlike lots of movies, The Last of The Mohicans does not have scenes filmed in so many locations. Some dialogues occur in some certain locations and then main characters go to another location and so on. Thus, if you like movies uses endless locations and less dialogues in it, you may not like this movie.
The thing makes The Last of The Mohicans interesting and attractive for me is the reality of the characters, scenes and locations I feel from the screen. Costumes, lights and environments are so realistic that you sometimes forget that you are at home. It is like running with these Indians in the forest together or rowing together in the boats.
This image is taken from: www.flickeringmyth.com
I almost forget. The music :) One of the best soundtrack albums I have ever seen in my life is used in this movie. Songs are written in such a way that it attracts you to be an Indian and fight with those evil people. Encouragement, attractiveness, beauty... This movie is like a masterpiece for me and it will be a well-known pattern for Indian movies which will be directed in near future. (In this article I tried not to give any spoiler, so I kept the article a little bit short) I want to end my article with a famous quote of Chingachgook " Great Spirit, Maker of All Life. A warrior goes to you swift and straight as an arrow shot into the sun. Welcome him and let him take his place at the council fire of my people. He is Uncas, my son. Tell them to be patient and ask death for speed; for they are all there but one - I, Chingachgook - Last of the Mohicans." IMDB
