Jeff Bezos on New World Success

Hello guys, and welcome to the Gaming News for 02 Oct 2021. Jeff Bezos, who is the founder and execute chairman of Amazon, has hailed the success of New World. He sent out a tweet that says "After many failures and setbacks in gaming, we have a success. So proud of the team for the persistence. View setbacks as helpful obstacles that drive learning. Whatever your goals are, don't give up no matter how hard it gets @playnewworld." And then he also linked to an article from Bloomberg which was titled "Amazon Can Make Just About Anything - Except a Good Video Game", and he titled it "The two articles are only 8 months apart." Now, as someone who is still fairly new into the news reporting game, I take anything Bloomberg say with a pinch of salt, basically because time and time again, they're completely disputed by these companies, publishers and so on. But generally, I'm happy with New World's success. The reason I didn't play it myself is simply because there's too many other games to play right now, so maybe one day in the future, I will? Who knows? I want to really see what the end game is like. And with Final Fantasy 14 Endwalker just around the corner, I don't feel that I have time.

PlayStation Game Trials

The next bit of news for today is PlayStation are introducing a new feature on PlayStation 5 called Game Trials, so you'll be able to download certain games, just a demo of it. It's just a demo and try it for free before you buy. The two games that initially that they put on Game Trials are Death Stranding Director's Cut and Sackboy A Big Adventure, with more to come in the future. I am actually currently right now playing through Death Stranding, and I actually quite like it. It's quite fun. It's very, very frustrating. I'm having fun with it. It's interesting that officially they're adding basally demos to PlayStation 5, which is a concept which has been around for decades, but they're calling it Game Trials.

eFootball Terrible Reviews

And then the last bit of news for today is that while New World is enjoying success at the top of Steam, at the moment, eFootball is at the very bottom at the other end of the spectrum. eFootball is actually a rebrand of Pro Evolution Soccer. If you rewind the clock like 20 years, it was FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer, they went hand in hand. It was down to your own personal preference, which you preferred. And then they rebranded it to eFootball, as in Pro Evolution Soccer and it has been review bombed. If you go on to the Steam page of the game it's overwhelmingly negative reviews, and some of the screenshots that people have been sharing explain why. They're not doing it just because to be mean. It's like the quality of the game that they released is ridiculous, and some of the screenshots are just made embarrassing. Hopefully, Konami can get their act together and fix it and take the criticism positively and view it, as Bezos said, that's a challenge for them to learn and not allow these things happen (again). But basically when these things happen like, for example, when Ubisoft launched Assassin's Creed Unity embarrassing screenshots of how broken the game was initially at launch were also revealed online. I would just say to publishers, please test your game (better) before you release them for your own sake. Anyway, guys, that's it for the Gaming News for today. Thank you so much to all the new followers coming on to the feed. There's quite a few of you yesterday, so welcome, all of you 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.
