Fans are frustrated with the Genshin Impact Anniversary Event, The Witcher 3's quest director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz has joined Riot Games to work on its upcoming MMO, and YouTube Gaming adds Theatre Mode for mobile viewers.

Riot Games MMO

Riot Games, the renowned developer behind games like League of Legends and VALORANT, is making headlines once again with the announcement of their upcoming MMO. Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, the quest director of The Witcher 3, recently revealed that he will be joining Riot Games to contribute to the development of their highly anticipated MMO project.


While details about the MMO are still scarce, fans of Riot Games are eagerly awaiting more information. With the success of their previous titles, it comes as no surprise that the gaming community is captivated by their next venture. League of Legends and VALORANT have both followed a successful free-to-play model, which begs the question of whether the upcoming MMO will adopt the same approach.


The free-to-play model has proven to be a lucrative one, allowing players to engage with the game without an upfront cost while generating revenue through in-game purchases and microtransactions. Riot Games' ability to maintain a thriving player base and monetize their games effectively has solidified their position in the gaming industry.


As we await further updates on Riot Games' MMO, speculation and anticipation continue to grow. It will be interesting to see how Riot Games translates their expertise in multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) and first-person shooter genres into a fully-fledged MMO experience.

Genshin Impact Anniversary Event

miHoYo, the developer behind the immensely popular game Genshin Impact, has recently come under fire from fans due to their upcoming anniversary event. Frustration has arisen as some players feel that miHoYo is asking for too much in return for underwhelming rewards.


The anniversary event requires players to submit fan art, promote the game on social media, and engage in specific activities to receive in-game items or a chance to win prizes like an iPad. While miHoYo has amassed significant success with Genshin Impact, earning billions of dollars, fans argue that the prizes offered in the anniversary event should be more substantial.


Personal experiences with Genshin Impact vary among players. Some have found the game enjoyable and engaging, while others have started to lose interest due to what they perceive as a lack of substantial updates and expansions. Additionally, the consistent stream of new items in the cash shop and the presence of characters that can be fully upgraded with substantial financial investment have created a sense of unease among some players.


Critics argue that the reliance on microtransactions and the pressure to spend significant amounts of money on the game detract from the overall experience and hinder the game's potential. These concerns have led to some players distancing themselves from Genshin Impact.

YouTube Gaming Theatre Mode

In other news, YouTube Gaming has recently introduced a new feature called Theatre Mode to its mobile app. This exciting addition allows users to view live streams and chat simultaneously in an elegant and user-friendly manner.


With Theatre Mode, YouTube Gaming aims to enhance the mobile streaming experience by providing users with a seamless interface to engage with both the content and the community. The integration of the live stream and chat on a single screen further augments the sense of immersion for viewers.


However, since the introduction of Theatre Mode on mobile, many users are now eagerly anticipating its arrival on desktop. Fans have taken to social media, directing their inquiries to Ryan Wyatt (also known as Fwiz), the head of YouTube Gaming, about when this feature will be available on PCs.


As a content creator who is active both on YouTube and Twitch, I am skeptical of YouTube Gaming's approach to simply emulate the features of its competitor, Twitch. While it is understandable that YouTube Gaming aims to stay competitive and attract more streamers and viewers, it would be beneficial for them to focus on innovating and introducing unique features that set them apart from other platforms.


In the long run, imitating Twitch may not be the most effective strategy for YouTube Gaming. Instead, they should strive to identify their strengths and offer distinctive experiences that appeal to their user base. The gaming community values diversity, and platforms should aim to create their own identities rather than imitate existing ones.


In conclusion, Riot Games' venture into the MMO genre has raised the expectations of gaming enthusiasts around the world, and fans eagerly anticipate any news regarding their upcoming project. Meanwhile, miHoYo's handling of the Genshin Impact anniversary event has sparked debates and discussions among players, highlighting the delicate balance between engaging players and monetizing game content. Lastly, YouTube Gaming's introduction of Theatre Mode on mobile has garnered positive feedback but also highlights the need for the platform to focus on differentiation rather than imitation.
