This guide is an in-depth walkthrough into the art of harvesting plants and using them as ingredients for certain quests and also in relation with other professions. Usually, the professions that use herb ingredients are Alchemy and Inscription. This World of Warcraft herb guide will show a player the easiest and quickest way to ascend to level 600 in Herbalism. Here are major aspects that help a player achieve herbalism level 600:
- To begin using Herbalism a player must start by being at least level 5, and then the player can learn Apprentice Herbalism by being visiting any of the numerous herbalism trainers.
- If you are having difficulties finding a trainer, you can ask any major city guard where an Herbalism trainer can be found.
- When you begin harvesting plants out on the fields make sure that you turn on the “Find Herbs” ability. By doing so, it will display every nearby herb on the minimap.
- To gain skill in herbalism all you would need to do is gather certain herbs that give you skill points. Each herb has a different color, and these will help you determine how likely you will gain a skill point after harvesting that herb.

To connect your PSP (Playstation Portable) to your TV you can simply plug the AV cable into the headphone jack socket on your PSP (Playstation Portable) and the other end into the TV. There are different types of AV cables such as S-Video and component/YpPbPr cables. The type you need will depend on what sort of input your TV has.
The second step is to change “Connected Display Settings” on your PSP (Playstation Portable). If you have a widescreen TV select 16:9. If not, choose 4:3. If you have a HDTV the best Component/D-Terminal Output setting will be “progressive” which will use the TV’s 480p resolution mode. For TVs that are not HD the best option will be “Interface” – this uses standard definition 480i.
Now simply select the appropriate input source on your TV, turn on your PSP and hold down the “display” button for 5 seconds. Voila! you can play your PSP on your TV screen.
There is one major downside to the method mentioned above; if you connect your PSP to your TV using only an AV cable, you will not achieve a full screen picture, it will only take up a small portion of the screen; obviously this is not ideal if, like me, you are a serious gamer. Luckily there is a solution – a PSP to TV Converter. This device can connect directly to the HDMI port on your HD TV and will enable you to play your PSP in full HD and in full screen.

The earliest crossover game was featured in Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter, a classic game combining popular characters of two franchises to collide in combat. Following the success of this game, the title paved the way for many more crossovers to come across the years. The most recently released crossover which fans anticipated after a ten year wait was Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (then Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 featuring new characters and finishes). The Marvel and Capcom franchises had done well with the constant addition of new characters to their existing roster. With a growing fanbase of character requests and crossover possibilities, other companies are now doing the same thing; inserting popular characters into a crossover scenario to battle it out or introduce a new element in the parent game altogether.
Setting aside crossover games that focus on battles, there are games which are developed using crossovered characters to solve a mystery. One of the most prominent games is Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney. This was announced in Japan several months ago and the game will be released on the 3DS on November 29, 2012. Professor Layton acting as a detective while Phoenix Wright, the main protagonist (lawyer) in the Ace Attorney helping each other to solve a mystery of a woman convicted of witchcraft. The game is an adventure puzzle game requiring players to follow clues to solve the mystery of this woman and the main antagonist in the game. This game is expected to receive a wide array positive reviews as Phoenix Wright is a well-loved character in Japan. As a side-note, Phoenix Wright appeared in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 as a new, playable combatant.
In other settings, crossovers appear in sports settings. Almost released at every Olympic event is Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games. Players can control the cast of Mario and Sonic respectively to participate in sports and upload their scores onto leaderboards. With that said, the game is only fun for a short period of time before excitement dies out. Playing the games, choosing characters to participate in events is awkward and cumbersome. For example, using Doctor Eggman to participate in a 100 meter run does not fit his persona. This goes for the same with Mario, Bowser and the like. Crossovers such as this hurts the franchise more than helping it. Using loved characters to act out of character is not appealing, especially for gamers who grew up with these characters. To put it bluntly, these characters should remain in their own niche without further diminishing the franchise.
