GTA Trilogy Patch 1.02, Phil Spencer on Gaming Preservation, CohhCarnage Feature | Gaming News

GTA Trilogy Patch 1.02

Hello, guys, and welcome to the Gaming News for 21 Nov 2021. Rockstar have already released a patch for the Grand Theft Auto The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition Patch 1.02, which has many fixes for a lot of the games. But we will see over the next few days how people feel about the patch and whether there's still issues that Rockstar needs to fix. I'll just wait a bit longer before I jump back into Grand Theft Auto III. I was having a lot of fun with it and I will eventually play through all of them. I'm very happy to play them again after all this time, especially given that they were PlayStation 2 era games.

Phil Spencer on Gaming Preservation

And then the next bit of news for today is Phil Spencer, who is the head of Xbox, wants to see emulations such as Xbox Backwards compatibility become an industry standard and he would like to see it implemented now for the preservation of games in the future because that's what we've been talking about lately. Grand Theft Auto The Trilogy. They're PlayStation 2 games, Nintendo 64 games on the Switch. They came out 20 years ago and people really want to play them because they were great when we played them 20 years ago, and it would really be nice to play those games on modern platforms and he wants to see more of it as a standard in the future. Hopefully, that will happen because I would support that 100% because I have some very fond memories of the gaming and the games I played 20 years ago and I do want to preserve them and revisit them when I can.

CohhCarnage Feature

And then this week's feature and shout out is going to go to one of my favorite streamers, CohhCarnage. CohhCarnage is a variety streamer on Twitch. He also has a YouTube channel where all of his streams are backed up and he's got a really good team behind him as well. He's got a great mod team, a really knowledgeable, very clever developers that make the gaming and streaming experience of his stream as great as possible. And he's very dedicated to what he does. He will stream about three times a day, literally. He'll have a morning stream, an afternoon stream and a cozy evening stream. I draw a lot of inspiration from the way he's been able to set up his streaming and also as well. He's just a really nice guy and he just wants to play games. I think that's what I've touched on before is as a gamer myself, I just want to play games and have fun and I really believe that he wants the same thing. And he's also helped to generate millions of dollars for charity over the years and stuff like that. If you want to, check out CohhCarnage if you've never heard of him. That's it for the Gaming News for this week. Thank you so much to all the new followers I've seen quite a few of you lately. 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.

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.
