Resident Evil 7 Ships 10 Million Copies

Hello guys, and welcome to the Gaming News for 10 Oct 2021. Resident Evil 7 is the first game in the series to ship 10 million copies, so if you haven't checked it out already, I really highly recommend it. I did play it a lot, which I've been saying a lot lately and I did even get the Platinum Trophy for it. It is one of the more scary Resident Evil games, given the sort of tight corridors of the house you're going through and the first person perspective and enemies that in a lot of cases you can't take on. You have to just run. It's a very interesting game, it has got a very interesting story as well, with twists and turns and even alternative endings and so on. And Capcom have been very clear in their press release. 10 million copies shipped means that's how many have been shipped to retailers. It's not necessarily how many have been sold, but it has been promoted by digital sales and so on. The number is very close to that. And the Resident Evil series overall has already passed 100 million units shipped*. Obviously, it's a big asset for Capcom, and I'm sure that they will keep it going as long as the enthusiasm is there from the fans. And I announced a couple of days ago that they're even releasing a movie, well another movie, because they've released several in the past and there was a TV show and so on. Know that Resident Evil is doing very well right now. I would highly recommend Resident Evil Village, Resident Evil 7, and so on. Like check out the series if you haven't already.

PC Building Simulator

The next bit of news for today is PC Building Simulator is now available for free on the Epic Game Store, which I did say a couple of days ago, but it has done incredibly well on the Epic Game Store. It was redeemed 4 million times in 24 hours, which is one of the bigger games that have been claimed for free on the Epic Game Store. If you don't know what PC Building Simulator is, you run basically a PC repair shop and you have to fix computers, PCs as simple as that. You might have to upgrade the RAM, you might have to replace the processor, you might have to replace a graphics card and so on. And it starts simple. You literally on the first couple of computer fixes, you might have to just clean out dust or upgrade the RAM and so on. And as you build your reputation in your PC repair shop, you get more complicated orders. You have to make some decisions. You have to balance your finances as well to make sure that you're ordering in components that you need to upgrade your customers computers while also making a profit. There's a nice chill soundtrack, so it's a very fun game. I would highly recommend it and it will be available for free on the Epic Game store until the 14 October. Take advantage. It's free and it's a great game to play.

ReadySetBen Feature

And then this week's shout out is going to go to my friend ReadySetBen. He is a live streamer over on Twitch and he is a strong proponent of the LGBTQIA+ community. I needed to be very careful to make sure I said that correctly. Please check him out. He's an awesome guy. I would recommend to check out his live streams. They are very chill and also as well. I'm very proud to call him my friend. If you go see, I say hi to him, and be sure to say that I sent you as well. Anyway, guys, that's it for the Gaming News for today. Thank you again to all the new followers coming on to 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.

Not at all, I simply starting playing a lot of other games too.

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.

I have 10 years commercial experience as a website and database developer that I can fall back on. I was able to develop this entire website using my experience.
