Activision Blizzard Not At Game Awards, BioShock 4 Details, PlayStation Subscription | Gaming News





BioShock 4 Details

Hello, guys, and welcome to the Gaming News for 04 Dec 2021. BioShock 4 details are being speculated on. One of the speculations is it's going to be set in an Antarctic setting. The lore is going to be to be connected to the other previous games such as BioShock Infinite and that we will get a potential 2022 release announced soon. There's been more and more details emerging about BioShock 4, so hopefully we'll get into it. BioShock Infinite blew my mind literally. I'm definitely looking forward to the series continuing in the future.

PlayStation Subscription

And then the next bit of news for today is according to a report from Bloomberg, PlayStation are working on a new subscription service to rival Xbox Games Pass code named Sparticus, which will combine PlayStation Plus, PlayStation Now and all of their services together so they can offer a suite of services like Xbox Game Pass. We will see if that's true. The PlayStation Now is their equivalent of cloud based streaming service just like Xbox xCloud, and then PlayStation Plus is basically the same as Xbox Gold. We will see hopefully we'll get details soon. If it does happen, I'll be sure to report it.

Activision Blizzard Not At Game Awards

And then the last bit of news for today is Geoff Keighley has confirmed that Activision Blizzard will not be at this year's Game Awards, so he tweeted out saying "Beyond its nominations I can confirm that Activision Blizzard will not be a part of this year's Game Awards. The Game Awards is a time of celebration for this industry, the biggest form of entertainment in this world. There is no place for abuse, harassment or predatory practices in any company or any community. I also realize that we have a big platform which can accelerate and inspire change. We are committed to that. But we all need to work together to build a better and a more inclusive environment that everyone feels safe to build the world's best games. All of us are accountable to this standard. Incredible games and the talented developers who build them are who we want to celebrate. See you on Thursday." I can't tell from this if that means he himself did not allow Activision Blizzard to come to the event, but who knows? But generally because I've reported on it several times now they still need to get their act together over at Activision Blizzard, so hopefully it will happen sooner than later because they do make great games and people deserve to just go to work and not be subjugated. Hopefully it's another step towards a better future for the company. Anyway, guys, that's it for the Gaming News for today. Thank you so much. As always, to all the new followers. I appreciate you 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.
