Hey everyone, welcome to another edition of the daily gaming news. Here I'll be discussing all the latest goings-on in the gaming industry, from new releases to game announcements and everything in between. So without further ado, let's get started!
Epic Games Allow NFT and Blockchain Games
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.
That's all for my roundup of the latest gaming news. What do you think? Are any of these stories big deals in your opinion? Let me know by leaving a comment on the video. And don't forget to check back tomorrow for more exciting gaming news!
