Walyou Deals - Learn to Code by Making Games - Unity 5 Developer Course

Take advantage of the heavily discounted Unity 5 developer course currently featured on Walyou Deals, and discover a world where coding is anything but boring.

Back in the day, learning programming implied writing a bunch of code lines, compiling the script and running the program. In modern times, however, the line between code and the end result is much thinner, not to mention that developer courses that teach you how to code in various environments are easier to follow now. The perfect example of that is represented by the Unity 5 Developer Course created by Udemy that’s currently listed on Walyou Deals among many other things that could prove appealing for geeks.

The Unity 5 Developer Course helps you master Unity 3D, one of the best development tools for both web-based and mobile games. To achieve that, you need to go over 278 lectures and 49 hours of content. Everything is structured into sections, and the lectures are short, so you’ll even be able to watch them while taking a break from your regular work.An important part of the course is represented by Test Driven Development in C#, a modern language that’s used in more than just making games, so if you’re looking for a career in programming, this could turn out useful. Object-oriented programming and general knowledge of game creation are essential, but at the end of the course you’ll know a lot about these aspects, as well. More than that, you’ll be able to transfer your knowledge to .NET, and several other languages.

While learning all that needs to be learned from this Unity 5 developer course, you also need to practice, since it’s that that makes you perfect. To do so, you will need either a Mac or a PC capable of running Unity 3D, copies of Unity 4.6.3 for early content and Unity 5 for later stages (both downloadable for free straight from Unity), as well as a free copy of Blender.

Helping you along the way will be Ben Tristem, a best-selling instructor, game developer, and online entrepreneur who has a degree in computing from Imperial College London, as well as a physics diploma from the Open University. Both of these are essential for creating games, so you can see why your success is guaranteed. Other people have also exhibited confidence in this online game development school, since the Unity 5 Developer Course was initially crowdfunded on Kickstarter, and the success of the project is proof that many were interested in taking this approach.

This is a time-limited offer, so if you’re interested in learning how to code by making games in Unity 5, head over to Walyou Deals and add the developer course to your cart within the next 10 hours. Since this is a digital product, it will be delivered right after making the purchase. The course is offered in our store for $35, which is 82% off the original price ($197), and likely not something you would want to miss.

MSI Launches Heroes of the Storm Gaming Laptops

MSI GT72 Heroes of the Storm Gaming Laptop

If HP is putting its money on Star Wars movies when designing gaming laptops, MSI prefers to stick to actual games, and the three newly launched Heroes of the Storm gaming laptops are proof of that.

It didn’t take long for the Heroes of the Storm video game, one of Blizzard Entertainment’s most recent creations, to get a considerable following. While the game itself doesn’t any any spectacular system requirements, that didn’t stop Taiwanese computer manufacturer MSI from releasing not one, but three incredibly-specced gaming laptops themed after Blizzard’s game. All three of them were unveiled at Singapore’s GamesStart convention.

I should start by saying that all three configurations are based on Intel processors and nVidia GPUs, so if you’re thinking that only AMD is capable of making the best CPUs or GPUs on the market, then maybe you should look for a different gaming notebook.

First of all, there is a skinned version of the GE62 Apache, a 15.6-inch gaming notebook powered by an Intel i7 6700HQ CPU and an NVIDIA GTX 960m, along with 8GB of RAM. This may be MSI’s entry level Heroes of the Storm gaming laptop, but it still costs $1,610, so it’s not exactly for gamers on a tight budget.

Next, there’s the MSI GT72 Dominator, which is an even more powerful beast. This one sports an Intel i7 6820HK CPU, along with a GTX980m GPU, 16GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, and a 1TB combo drive. Unlike the GE62, which only has a wraparound skin of the game, the GT72 also features a laser engraved mural of the game on the back. As expected, this is also very expensive (maybe unjustifiably so?), and gamers wanting it will have to fork $3,230.

Not at last, there is the most futuristic-looking and future-proof laptop in MSI’s portfolio, the GT80. This flagship doesn’t only take the IPS display of the previous models to a whole different level, with its 18.4-inch screen, but it also packs a mechanical keyboard (which, if I’m not mistaken, is a feature available exclusively on this laptop), as well as two NVIDIA GTX 980m GPUs. It may be based on the same CPU as the GT72, but it includes 32GB of DDR4 RAM, and an even larger laser cut engraving on the back. MSI didn’t forget about decorating the inside of this laptop, so it placed a special skin just above the mechanical keyboard.

Now, claiming that any of these laptops would be complete overkill for the Heroes of the Storm video game would be a major understatement (yes, even the GE62 can run it at maxed out settings), but that’s not the point. Blizzard has other, more demanding games in its portfolio, and Heroes of the Storm can still be enjoyed on the side.

If you still haven’t played the Heroes of the Storm game, head over to Amazon and buy it. This might prove the best $15 you’ll ever spend on a game, considering it features characters from Diablo, Starcraft, and Warcraft.
