Final Fantasy 7 Remake PC Requires Online, PlayStation Holiday Sale, PS Plus Jan 2022 | Gaming News

PS Plus Jan 2022

Hello, guys, and welcome to the Gaming News for 23 Dec 2021. French forum Dealabs have leaked the PlayStation Plus games for Jan 2022, which includes Deep Rock Galactic, Persona 5 Strikers and Dirt 5. And the reason they're becoming an almost reliable source is because they've revealed what turns out to be the right games for the last six months now. We will see in January if this is true. Who knows what their source is? But like I said, if these are the actual games which are coming to PlayStation Plus in January, it'll be a good month.

PlayStation Holiday Sale

And then the next bit of news for today is PlayStation have announced the holiday sale, which will go on between now and the 19 Jan 2022 where hundreds of games are going to be discounted on PlayStation Store. On the PlayStation Blog, they revealed a list of what they said is just a few of the biggest games which are on sale. And they said it's just a small fraction of what is actually on sale. And on the 05 Jan 2022, they said even more games are going to be joining the promotion. If there's any game that you've been eyeing for a while, it might be discounted right now, so check the PlayStation Store to see if there's a discount.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake PC Requires Online

And then the last bit of news for today is players were unable to play Final Fantasy 7 Remake PC yesterday because of Epic Game Store being down. The Epic Game Store tweeted out saying "Internet service outages are currently impacting the Epic Games Store, affecting logins, libraries, purchases, etc. We are monitoring the situation and we will update you when the situation is resolved." And then a few hours later, they said "The issues have been resolved. If you're still experiencing some issues on the Epic Games Store, we recommend closing and relaunching the launcher." And then someone tweeted out saying "Why? Just why? I have the game I paid for the game. Anyone know how to bypass this?". Traditionally, there are a lot of games which seem to be completely offline or single player games which require a login via whichever store you bought them from, whether it's Epic or Steam. And the reason why those systems were implemented is to prevent piracy. Simple as that. You log in, you verify your purchase pretty much every single time you play the game. And it helps the developers feel confident that people who have actually bought the game are playing it. That's the reason why these systems are in place for games which seemingly are completely offline. And when it comes to Epic Games Store going down, that is related to Amazon Web Services. Amazon Web Services have had issues over the last couple of weeks. It's gone down multiple times, but it's nothing to do with the servers, it's to do with power to their North Virginia Data Center. Just so you know, this is why these things happen. Anyway, guys, that's it for the Gaming News for today. Thank you so much as always to all the new followers 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.
