Epic Games Allow NFT and Blockchain Games, PS5 Store Update, heyZeusHeresToast Feature | Gaming News





Epic Games Allow NFT and Blockchain Games

Hello guys, and welcome to the Gaming News for 17 Oct 2021. Epic Games are going to be allowing NFT games or blockchain technology games onto their platform, which is the response to yesterday's ban from Steam. Tim Sweeney, who is the co founder and head of Epic Games, tweeted out saying "Epic Games Store will welcome games that make use of blockchain tech, provided that they follow the relevant laws, disclose their terms and are age rated by an appropriate group. Though Epic's not using crypto on our games, we welcome innovation in the areas of technology and finance." Like I said, I've not played any games that feature NFT or blockchain or crypto technology, but cool, whatever.

PS5 Store Update

The next bit of news for today is PlayStation has added a new game reel to the top of their PlayStation Store, which to be honest, I was surprised wasn't there before. Shuhei Yoshida, who is one of the biggest people at PlayStation, tweeted out saying that "PlayStation Store on PlayStation 5 now has new game strand on top page, making it super easy to find newly released games." Yeah, cool. If you're just curious what is new on PlayStation 5 is now at the top of the store and you can browse through the new releases.

And then this week's shout out is going to go to my friend heyZeusHeresToast. He is the blood God. He is so many words that you can't describe how amazing he is. And he is primarily known for Speedrunning Bloodborne, but he also Speedruns Sekiro and all of the souls like games, Demon Souls and so on. And he also was featured at Games Done Quick. That's how I became aware of him. And yeah, overall, he's just a really nice guy. He's really nice. I would really recommend heyZeusHeresToast and go check him out. If you do go to see him from here, then be sure to say that I sent you. Anyway, guys, that's it for the Gaming News for today. Thank you so much 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.

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.
