Google Countersuing Epic Games

Hello guys and welcome to the Gaming News for 13 Oct 2021. Google is actually now countersuing Epic Games. Epic Games has brought a lawsuit against Apple and Google over the removal of the Fortnite app, and the reason why the Fortnite app was removed from both stores is because they implemented their own payment system, which circumvented the stores payment systems, which developers are obliged to use. Epic Games alleged that both Google and Apple are running an anti competitive model to force the developers onto their payment system. Now Google has actually said that by Epic purposefully breaching contract and implementing this system, they have led to damages on Google and also highlighted a potential security problem on the Google Play Store, which could be used by other bad actors for nefarious like means or deeds. We'll see what happens with that. Apple and Google are not going to back down because very recently I reported that there was an outcome for the Apple versus Epic lawsuit. And of the ten allegations Epic put against Apple, nine went in Apple's favor. Apple have basically said that for now they are not going to allow the Fortnite app back onto the Apple App* Store until all lawsuits are finished, which could take years. Given that now Google is countersuing Epic Games, it means that most likely Fortnite App will just not be returning to any phone any time soon. Oh, well.

Call of Duty Open Letter to Cheaters

The next bit of news for today is the developers behind Call of Duty and Raven Software have sent an email and open letter to cheaters. Let me read this to you. It says, "Dear Cheaters, We love games. It's our passion. We're honored to make games for the greatest fans in the world. We don't always get it right, but we're committed to doing our best. Cheating ruins the fun for everyone. No one likes a cheater. Our goal is to deliver a fun and fair gaming experience, for our developers, for our fans, and most importantly, for Call of Duty players everywhere. Cheaters aren't welcome. There's no tolerance for cheaters, and soon you'll know what we mean, Call of Duty." What I'm going to do is I'm actually going to make a video going about this in detail over on my main gaming channel because I feel there's more to this than meets the eye. Know that this is the open letter that they sent to cheaters in games.

Quake Next Gen

The last bit of news for today is the Quake next gen upgrade, which will allow you to run the original Quake game in 4K 120 FPS is now available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, and it will be available as a free upgrade if you already own previous versions of the game from the previous generations. If you're interested know that that's available. Anyway, guys, that's it for the Gaming News for today. Thank you so much for the new followers, as always. 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.
