PlayStation Acquires Bluepoint Games

Hello guys and welcome to the Gaming News for 01 Oct 2021. PlayStation has acquired Bluepoint Games. Bluepoint Games is responsible for creating such beloved remakes as Uncharted The Nathan Drake Collection or more recently, the Demon's Souls remake. They made it from the original game and they made it so much better. It seemed that it was rumored for a while that they were going to be acquired and some people believed that actually they were acquired a couple of weeks ago. But now it's been officially announced that if it has happened, it was shared on the PlayStation Blog. It was also shared by Hermen Hulst who is the Head of PlayStation Studios and also as well they've said that the next game from Bluepoint Games will actually be an original game. It won't be just a remake, so I guess and I hope they do well at the PlayStation family.

PC Building Simulator

The next bit of news for today is PC Building Simulator will be free on Epic Game Store between 07 and 14 October 2021. I actually have played it before. It's a really fun game, so if you've ever built PCs before it's very chill and there's nice music to it as well. And what you have to do basically is that you have to build your computers and fix them and update them based on your customers requirements. They might just need a clean out. They might need an increase of RAM, they might need a new graphics card installed and so on. And you have to also manage the shipments of products because you don't have all the products with you. You have to order some and you have to manage the expectation of the customers based on the orders. And as you play it more and more and you're establishing your PC building business in the game, the orders become more complicated. You have to manage everything better and so on. It's very fun for someone like me to play a game like that, so please be sure to redeem it for free. The way it works is on a Epic Game Store is that all you do is add it to your account and it'll be on your account forever. You don't have to pay for a subscription like PlayStation Plus, you don't have to do anything like that. It's just will be available for you between the 7th and 14th so go for it.

Kratos Actor On Delay

And then the last bit of news for today is Christopher Judge, who is the actor behind Kratos in God of War has revealed that the game was actually delayed as in God of War Ragnarok because of him. He sent out a couple of tweets yesterday quote "100% in my feels right now. I need to be forthcoming. This has been approved by no one. To the beloved fandom Ragnarok was delayed because of me. August 2019 I couldn't walk. I had to have back surgery both hips replaced and knee surgery. They waited for me to rehab." And then continues "No threats, no 'who do you think you are?' nothing but love and support. And Sony Santa Monica has never said a word about the delay and what caused it. Studios are assholes. But this company, from the top to the bottom should give us hope. What they did for the crew is way more." And I think hopefully we can all agree that someone's health matters more than anything, let alone businesses or deadlines or whatever. Simply, he took care of his health first, you know, and I'm glad that he got the support from Sony Santa Monica to do that. And I am looking forward to God of War Ragnarok because I absolutely loved God of War from 2018, and I'm looking forward to the next one. Definitely. Anyway, guys, that's it for the Gaming News for today. Thank you as always, to all the new followers coming onto the feed, and I will see you tomorrow. Thanks, guys. Bye bye.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have played hundreds of games in my life and have experienced truly amazing games. As time has passed and games continue to evolve, I want to share my gaming adventures with the world so you can improve your gaming experience too.

There are several gaming franchises I love experiencing a lot such as Final Fantasy, Resident Evil, God of War, Uncharted, Yakuza, Assassin's Creed, The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, Xenoblade Chronicles and more.

In 1997 when I was 12 years old, a class mate of mine asked me, have you ever played Final Fantasy 7? I was like no, what’s that? He lent me his copy, and I remember on the first night I escaped Midgar after not being able to put it down for 5 to 6 hours even though it was a school night. Shortly after I finished the game and my gaming obsession was truly planted.

Towards the end of 1998 I played Zelda 64 Ocarina of Time. It was a revelation to me, given its combat, story telling, music and satisfying ending. It also gave a hint of what open world could look like given how “huge” Hyrule Field was, which was massive for the time. After nearly 25 years, Zelda 64 Ocarina of Time still sits at the top of my favourite games of all time list.

When I went to University during 2003 to 2007, it was the era of Half Life 2. I remember spending a portion of my student loan so I could get a gaming pc powerful enough to play it.

During that time I also started my adventures in MMOs including Final Fantasy 11 and World of Warcraft. It amazes me that they are still online to this day.

After leaving University, I like most people ended up in the 9 to 5 cycle, after a year of being stuck in the “no job without experience, no experience without a job”. At the time I was still living with my parents and I got distracted on girls for a while. My love for gaming never ended though, with it always being a fall back for me.

In 2013, I started my first YouTube channel, as a way to also document my time in the upcoming Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn. I had seen some YouTubers who made really good videos. For me, at the time, it was a hobby to do on the evening and weekends, I never went into it thinking one day it would be my job. I would have made videos, even if it made no money at all.

After 10 years of multiple jobs, living a very miserable existence in the 9 to 5 cycle, it all abruptly ended in 2018 with my disability of severe anxiety preventing me from commuting to London to work any more.

During the Pandemic, a lot of people were losing their jobs, and there was a lot more time to produce videos and play games. While growing as a content creator, I noticed my Instagram page had little to no content. One day I picked up my phone and recorded a video talking about gaming as it was my favourite hobby.

As I have now played hundreds of games and my passion has evolved for the last 30 years, I see my love for gaming lasting until the day I die. Games have made me laugh, made me cry, and everything in between. The recent price increases have definitely dampened gaming for most gamers, but I am in a privileged position as an Independent Gaming Journalist to receive a lot of games for free from developers and publishers to review.

I hope I can always bring the highest quality Gaming News every day, in digestible 1 to 1.5 minute summaries, to share the passion I have always had for it.

I started in August 2013 as a hobby, and went full time during 2018.

Being a YouTuber, Streamer, or Content Creator is not the primary goal. I am working to enjoy my life and remain independent. I do not want to spend my life taking orders from other people.
