Cryptocurrency FIFA Farm, Steam Deck Reservations, Skyward Sword HD | Gaming News






Introduction

Hey everyone, welcome to another edition of the daily gaming news. Here I'll be discussing all the latest goings-on in the gaming industry, from new releases to game announcements and everything in between. So without further ado, let's get started!

Steam Deck Reservations

The Steam Deck, which I reported on recently, has got a reservation page of the Steam so you can now order it. Now, when you make your order, you will have a reservation date of when you will receive it. But because the demand has been so high, some of the reservation dates are already in 2022. And in fact, apparently if you order the biggest version, which is the 512 gigabyte version, you might have to wait until the Q3 2022 before you receive it. Just be aware that there is a reservation system in place, but that Valve eventually will get to your order.

Cryptocurrency FIFA Farm

The next bit of news for today is apparently in Ukraine, the Ukrainian police have seized a crypto farming farm and they had thousands of PlayStation 4s. Originally it was thought those PlayStation 4s were being used to farm cryptocurrency because it's a cryptocurrency farm, but in fact, they were being used to farm Ultimate FIFA 2020 teams so that the those accounts could then be sold on the black market. So I don't know who knows. I don't know anything about FIFA. I haven't played FIFA since FIFA 98, but apparently that's what they were doing.

Skyward Sword HD

And then the last bit of news for today, the Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword HD remaster has now come out on the Nintendo Switch to favorable reviews and I have a couple of friends who are actively playing it right now and they only have good things to say about it on the Switch. So if you have any sort of nostalgia or you just love Skyward Sword you played in the past, know that now you can play on the Switch. I personally I'm waiting for Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time the Nintendo 64 game to come out and I think a lot of people are probably waiting for Majora's Mask as well, which is also on Nintendo 64, but I just have to wait and see. I think they're just doing them in reverse order. They are doing Skyward Sword. Maybe eventually they'll do Wind Waker, then they'll do Majora's Mask and then they'll do Ocarina of Time if things keep going the way that they're going.
