After my general guide to Zac for League of Legends, especially on how to use his abilities, I'll give you now several item builds for him playing solo top lane or jungle lane. Zac's abilities scale with Ability Power, so it's better playing him with an AP building order than AD.

Jungle - Full Tank
Zac profits a lot from health because his passive allows him to drop a blob which can be picked up to restore a percentage of his maximum health. When you're low life, don't just teleport back to the base, just go into the jungle and spam your abilities. Each time you'll recieve this percentage of your maximum hp, and you'll be easy recovered. Zac is also able to jump directly into the enemy team, or engage with his ultimate. When built as tank, the enemy champs can't take you down.

Jungle - AP

As said before, Zac's abilities scale with ability power, meaning you build a lot of AP to make damage. Rylai's and Liandry's give Zac a lot oh health, too, so he still profits from his passive as explained above in the full tank build.
Note: I prefer playing him full tank because he's not this great damage dealer as other AP champs (Lux, Kassadin, etc.).

Solo Top - AP/Health

When playing him solo top lane, early health is essential. This way even a high damage dealer as Teemo or a really annoying champs as Yorick can't kill you, and you can simply lane forever because he heals himself very quick and doesn't use mana. Spirit Visage gives Zac additional 20% on his health regen and self-healing effects which makes him such a good laner.

Counter and Negative Aspects about Zac
The negative part about him is that he isn't doing great damage. Simple as that. Although he is very sustain and a great tank in my opinion, even when fed with 5-0-0 for example the game is not lost yet for the enemy team. Due to this aspect, I really recommand you to play him as a tank, wherever you play him. Of course, as top laner he gains a lot more gold and can easily counter a Shen or Singed who give the enemy a good tank, too.
To play against Zac you need high damage in short time. Kassadin, LeBlanc, Teemo, or any AD carry. When Zac's passive is activated (because you killed him), you still need to shoot down his four parts, else he doesn't die. 

Zac, the secret weapon is the newest champion in League of Legends. Many players have already bought him, he's incredibly strong. Maybe the most overpowered champ ever made? Or perfectly balanced yet? I've played him and this is my guide about Zac.

General Features
Zac looks like a green version of the villain Boo from the anime Dragon Ball. In game, he can be played best in top lane or jungle because Zac combines very good mobility and can sustain a lot of damage, which is one of the reason many players find him too strong. Let's have a quick overview about his abilities:

Abilities and how to use them
1. Cell Division: His passive. If Zax uses an ability, he drops a blob which can be picked up to recover health. When Zac dies he splits into four parts which slowly moves to the point where he died. If one or more reaches this point, Zac is revived with a percentage of his maximum health. The passive has a pretty high cooldown and these parts when he died can be shot down very easily. For example: Zac dies is a teamfight, splitting into four parts. The enemy carry just needs four quick shots and Zac is dead, or maybe an area of effect from Nasus and he is no more.
How to use: When you're low at health, just spam your abilities. Each time you're using one, you loose a percentage of your current health by dropping a blob. But! When picked up you recover a percentage of your MAXIMUM health, meaning you can regain very quick your health points.

2. Stretching Strike: His Q is his main ability to slow and damage your enemies. Because of his long distance, use it from bushes or across walls to hit your targets.

3. Unstable Matter: Your W should be learnt first when going to the jungle. It's Q simple AoE damage attack, very useful for team fights.

4. Elastic Slingshot: The ganking ability. Zac charges up and jumps a huge (!) distance and can easily jump from the river bush in mid lane over the half lane and stuns your enemy when hit. How to use: There are also new ways to jump for him, meaning new possibilities to gank. Here are two examples:

5. Let’s Bounce: Zac's ultimate allows him to bounce three times on the ground, damaging and slowing enemies in your way. How to use: Either you can follow your enemies quite easy because even stuns can't stop you from bouncing, or run fast like hell to escape everyone.

Useful combos:
1. Ganking

Jump from the bush to you enemy using Elasting Slingshot and do a lot of damage with Unstable Matter. When the enemy champion wants to flee, slow him with Streching Strike and finish off with your ulti Let's Bounce. You can even dive him because your passive will almost every time save you from dying under the tower.

2. Fight and Follow, Teamfights

Start with Unstable Matter to do a lot of AoE damage, and use Streching Strike to hit enemies standing behind (like the carry). Elastic Slingshot allows you to follow the champs if the want to run, and immediately thereafter use your ulti to stun the enemies. This way your whole team can catch up, even the slow ones, and your team scores the ace.

[Preview] Merc Elite - Modern Browsergame

Merc Elite is the new browser game by Bigpoint. It's a fast-paced multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) set in a near future scenario, including modern weapons and team fights. This is an overview about the game, its characters, and gameplay.
Heavy gun fight, the superior tactics win
The Classes
1. The Juggernaut: He's the tank of Merc Elite. Of course, he is equipped with high armor and health and should be the first one to engage a team fight although he has a low range. His shield can also protect your teammates from incoming damage which makes him just the perfect tank.
2. The Assault: The damage dealer. Do you need someone taking down the enemies? That's your class. The Assault is not tanky but he doesn't need to! He just takes down what's in his sight with a huge selection of weapons.
3. The Recon: This class is not as quick explained as the first two. Speed and intelligence is what makes this class my personal favorite by killing enemies with tactics and not just huge guns (although this is fun, too).
4. The Heavy Gunner: This gunner can shoot over long distances across the half map. Perfect for sniping the enemy soldiers or giving your team curtain fire.
5. The Tactician: He's quite the chief of your team because the Tactician can track where the enemy is and call an airstrike for example. Arms and shields are other ways for him to help your team win the game.

The browsergame Merc Elite is a tactical co-op shooter featuring several maps which I like very much. The details are what makes a game.
Ten soldiers are on the battlefield at the same time which gives a lot of possibilites for strategy combats. While you're playing you unlock new feature of the game, meaning weapons, abilities, and even new soldiers.  

Definitely something new. The combined power of modern shooter games and free-to-play browser games is what makes Merc Elite interesting. Five classes are enough to fit your personal gamestyle and preferences, but not to much to lose an overview about the game, especially for new gamers to this genre well done. 
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 "Ghosts". That's the new name of the upcoming shooter, says an insider of Infinity Ward via youtube. But there are more details.

Setting and Gameplay
CoD MW4 will be officially presented May 1, 2013 by Infinity Ward. Even the setting of the game was leaked: The future, meaning they probably ran out of wars and made up a whole new. The future setting also means that there will be future weapons and vehicles, maybe flying tanks and laser guns? Most likely, future means 2030 and current weapons and vehicles.
There are several leaks about the gameplay and movement. You can destroy buildings and the whole landscape, in singleplay and multiplayer as well. Furthermore, the way the player prones will be changed and sliding on your knees, while shooting your gun, will be featured. Rock 'n' Roll war.

Official statement? Release Date?
The release date of the game is in late 2013 for Xbox 720 and Playstation 4, but unfortunately these are all only rumors by an insider on youtube.
Although these infos in Call of Duty: Ghosts sounds realistic, we have to wait for an official statement by Activision or Infinity Ward. In my opinion, MW4 will definitely be released for the next-gen consoles this year.

Nowadays, younger children are using computers from an earlier age. This is because they help children to learn, to become more accustomed to technology and explore the world that we live in today. There are many different games for children to play. There are educational games which are based on a wide array of subject topics, including; maths, foreign languages, the economy, geography, the environment, and much, much more. There are also other games which are based on cartoon characters, such as Tom and Jerry and Scooby Doo, whilst the sole purpose of these games is to have fun, they also possess several advantages because they have learning aspects and are good when it comes to helping children explore the world.

Develop specific skills (e.g. map reading)
Online games help your children to develop specific skills. For example, if your child is playing an adventure game then they may need to use a map in order to get to the place they need to be. This is something which may prove to be extremely beneficial and thus can aid them with map reading which then consequently helps with regards to maths and geography.

Learning a foreign language 
Learning a foreign language is something which is very much recommended in today’s day and age. This is because it presents children with a wealth of job opportunities for when they grow up. Lots of people underestimate the importance of learning a different language, because they take the fact that most people know English for granted. Nevertheless, languages prove to be extremely beneficial and children are better off learning them as early as possible because they will find it a lot easier. There are lots of online games which are focused on teaching languages. These can be both fun and educational. Moreover, as your child gets better you can actually find their favourite games, e.g. Tom and Jerry games, in the language they are learning, e.g. Spanish. This progresses their learning because the instructions and the storyline will be in Spanish.

Learn more about the world 
In general games can broaden your child’s general knowledge. This is because the more that they are exposed to, the more they learn. After all, your child may be playing a game which is based in a certain country; this alone will enhance their general knowledge as they will discover a new place; where it is situated and what it is like.

Embrace history 
There are lots of games which help children to explore history. Some of the games you find will be set in a certain time frame, this will lead them to ponder further and thus they will be likely to ask you when this was and probably if you were around then to (so try not to get offended!). They may also get to enrich their knowledge with regards to certain artefacts and history pieces, the Greek gods are often featured in a lot of games for example. Moreover, there are games whereby your child makes their own mosaic and alike.

As you can see, there are lots of benefits to be had by allowing your child to explore the games which are available on the internet and thus consequently explore the world we live in today. And the best thing is, your child will be learning and absorbing information without even realising that they are doing so because they will be having so much fun.
