Lindsey Stirling at ONL, Saints Row Reboot, Ryan Reynolds Gaming Habits | 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!

Saints Row Reboot

Saints Row is going to be rebooted, and it's already being teased by the publisher Deep Silver. Geoff Keighley has confirmed that it's going to be featured during Gamescom, which starts next week. We'll see more about Saints Row. Saints Row has been described as the drunk cousin of GTA. It's basically GTA, with a lot of even more crazy stuff going on. I have played Saints Row before. Yeah, it's very, what's the word... grotesque and very over the top, but it appeals to some gamers. And, you know, the point of gaming in some cases is to just have as much fun as possible, regardless of how realistic or unrealistic it is. I am definitely looking forward to hearing more about it.

Lindsey Stirling at ONL

Speaking of Geoff Keighley, I was watching him live stream because he does regular live streams where he takes on question and answers from the community about what's going to happen at Gamescom, what's gonna be featured, what's going to come up at the Game Awards, stuff like that. And one thing you mentioned is that Lindsey Sterling is actually going to be performing music at Opening Night Live. I'm looking forward to it. Lindsey Sterling, if you don't know who she is, she's an expert violinist and she has got a lot of hit singles, but she basically found her fame on YouTube. She is basically YouTube star. Her career has blossomed. Having her being featured on Opening Night Live is awesome, because I am very aware of who Lindsey Sterling is I've been listening to her, for years.

Ryan Reynolds Gaming Habits

And then the last bit of news for today is Ryan Reynolds has had an interview with the BBC, and he was talking about his latest movie, Free Guys. There's a lot of video game references and stuff like that. And he said that during his time researching the gaming industry for the movie, he played a lot of GTA and even more Fortnite. But he found himself getting to a point where he would play Fortnite even when he wasn't researching it for the movie, and he had to put a cap on it. Yesterday we talked about how James McAvoy had to melt his Oblivion disk. It seems like Ryan Reynolds had to limit his time in Fortnite as well, so that he doesn't forget his responsibilities as a human being and as a parent, especially. It's interesting. And it's like, yeah, I know, and I think most of the people watching know full well, that gaming addiction can really be a problem, mostly because gaming just brings us so much joy, simple as that, and it can take over your lives if you allow it to. I personally try not to let that happen. The way that I get around it is simply I only play games when I'm live streaming them, or if I'm making a guide for YouTube. Otherwise I have put a cap, and I just won't play them. I don't casually play because I don't have time. I run so many YouTube channels. I run my social media. I focus on the gaming only when I'm, for example, streaming on Twitch or making a guide for YouTube.
