PlayStation Acquires Valkyrie Entertainment

Hello, guys, and welcome to the Gaming News for 11 Dec 2021. PlayStation has acquired Valkyrie Entertainment. Hermen Hulst, who is the head of PlayStation Studios, tweeted out saying "Today we announced valuable Valkyrie Entertainment will be joining PlayStation Studios family. The studio will be making invaluable contributions to key PlayStation studio franchises." Valkyrie Entertainment is one of those Studios that assists in the creation of games. They've assisted on games like God of War in the past and more. And basically they don't necessarily make games for themselves, but they do support the development of the games and their work is vital. I've reported similar stories in the past. I think Bluepoint Games, for example, they create amazing remasters and remakes, but they don't necessarily make games themselves, if that makes sense. I would say good luck to Valkyrie Entertainment. Hopefully it will go well in PlayStation.

Google Mobile Games

And then the next bit of news for today is Google are going to be bringing Android games to Windows next year. The way it kind of works is that they will have some sort of app that will allow you to play mobile games on PC. Now I know that a lot of my viewers don't really like mobile games from asking around and so on. Now, I personally love playing mobile games on PC. I personally use the MEMU emulator and I would say that mobile games when they're full screen on your computer, they actually can be very high quality. They can be very good. A lot of detail can be missed when you're playing on a tiny, tiny screen. Seeing some of the games really up close can really help you. And even playing games like, for example, PUBG Mobile with a keyboard and mouse is infinitely better than trying to use the touchpad. And that's why if you look at my main gaming channel, my PUBG Tutorial video is my highest viewed video of all time. I would say pay attention to that. If you're into mobile games or not, just let me know. Let's keep the conversation going. Let me know in the comments section.

SNES Creator Dies

And then the last bit of news for today is Masayuki Uemura, who is the man who's credited for creating both the NES and the SNES gaming platforms, has died at 78 years old. He died back on Monday, but there was so much other Gaming News I couldn't get around to it. His contribution towards gaming was huge. Pretty much every gamer I know had a NES and a SNES, so his contribution cannot be understated towards gaming. Rest in peace. Your work is very greatly appreciated. I would say that he is one of the people who had helped shape gaming into what it is today, so sending nothing but condolences, love and respect to his family and his survivors. Anyway, guys, that's it for the Gaming News for today. Thank you so much for all the new followers 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.
