Diablo IV Delayed, New World Gold Bug Update, Avengers Removes Cash Shop Items | Gaming News





New World Gold Bug Update

Hello, guys, welcome to the Gaming News for 03 Nov 2021. New World has had to disable gold and in game item trading between players because of a gold duplication bug that's currently in the game. There was a bug previously and that was fixed, but then it just resulted in a new bug that allowed players to duplicate gold, so they're working on it. Hopefully it will be fixed sooner than later so that the economy can get back to normal, because if these things go unchecked, then before you know, every player in the game is going to have infinite money and then the economy will just be destroyed. They have to actually try and balance it out. And that's not just New World that's at any and all games.

Avengers Removes Cash Items

The next bit of news for today is Crystal Dynamics have actually decided to roll back a change which included a cash shop. I don't want to say pay to win, so let me clarify. They tweeted out saying that "We have decided that by the end of today we will remove Heroes Catalyst and Fragment Extractors for purchase. We apologize for not responding sooner to your concerns about the additional paid consumables in the marketplace. We introduced them as an option for an evolving player base. We don't see them as pay to win since they don't offer power directly. After considering your feedback, we have decided that by the end of today we will remove Heroes Catalyst and Fragment Extractors for purchase. They will continue to be earnable rewards and those already owned are still usable. We hope that this can be the first step in rebuilding your confidence in us as a team. It continues to be our goal to make the very best game possible. Thank you for being part of the Marvel's Avengers community." The elimination of cash shops from main line games I think is always welcome. There are some games which all the time have a cash shop in terms of cosmetics and things like that, but the general presence of them should be eliminated, in my opinion.

Diablo IV Delayed

The last bit of news for today is Diablo IV has actually been delayed. With all the ongoing issues at Blizzard, they have delayed Diablo IV and also Overwatch 2, because simply there's been so much turmoil at the company. They just want to give the teams more time. And Diablo IV is specifically, because I'm actually looking forward to that, has been delayed all the way until 2023 potentially. It's nothing new for Blizzard that simply they just release games when they are ready rather than sticking to a fixed schedule of releases. Hopefully, by the time it does actually come out, we will just get a really good game to play. Anyway, guys, that's it for the Gaming News for today. Thank you so much for the new followers coming onto the feed 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.
