Gordon Ramsay on Twitch, Elden Ring ESRB Rating, Hironobu Sakaguchi Cancelled Project | Gaming News





Hironobu Sakaguchi Cancelled Project

Hello, guys, and welcome to the Gaming News for 03 Jan 2022. Hrionobu Sakaguchi, who was the creator of the original Final Fantasy games, has tweeted out saying "A dot art project that I gave up on the main character is, of course, a frog. You can use it as a wallpaper for 2022". Take a close look at it and see what you think. Some of the feedback and comments to this picture include it looks like it was ripped straight out of Octopath Traveler. He's not given any more context or any more information about this project, but we will see if it turns into anything again in the future, but for now it's cancelled.

Elden Ring ESRB Rating

The next bit of news for today is the ESRB rating for Elden Ring has been released and has been published on the official website. It reads "This is an action role playing game in which players assume the role of a character trying to retrieve a magical ring and become the Elden Lord. From a third person perspective, players explore environments, collect items and battle various enemies, example knights, fantastical creatures in melee combat. Players use swords, spears, axe, arrows, and magic to enemies. Combat is highlighted by cries of pain, slapters of blood and impact sound. The game includes depictions of gore, collectible items that includes severed fingers and tongues, a boss character cutting off his own arm, severed arms hanging from a ceiling. During the course of the game, a humanoid monster is depicted partially nude with scales, scars covering its breast and pelvic regions. The word crap appears in the dialogue." It's important to read about the ESRB rating in case you're worried about your kids playing these games, if the kids are very young, but generally they can also give a hint and almost a spoiler of what's to come in the game. I think most people will read this and be excited.

Gordon Ramsay on Twitch

And the last bit of news for today is Gordon Ramsay has been replying about Twitch. In the past he's famously said "What do you do for a living? I stream on Twitch, my cooking chef. What the F is Twitch?" Since then, a lot of streamers have been watching Gordon Ramsay based shows directly on their live streams, whether it be Master Chef or Hell's Kitchen or Kitchen Nightmares and so on. And without any sort of DMCA protection from the Watch Party system or anything like that. And a lot of other content creators have been concerned about it. DJ Wheat, who is the head of community at Twitch, was replying to such a concern, and he said "It's absolutely not okay, just like it's never been okay to stream music. This is just as DMCA'able as anything else. Hard to say why streamers have not been targeted, but just like music it's probably just a matter of time. This is not an official Twitch take just my own." And from this, basically, I would err on the side of caution. There's been some playful banter between Twitch and Gordon Ramsay directly. Gordon Ramsay has changed his Twitter profile to say, "doesn't know what Twitch is", and Twitch has changed theirs to say "scrambled egg recipe stan account". And there's been some back and forth as well between Gordon Ramsey and streamers directly. But this is not an official endorsement and license to stream whatever you like from his because it might not even belong to him. That's the thing they're put on these different networks like Fox and so on. These networks might come after Twitch rather than Gordon Ramsey himself. We will see what this turns into in the future. Anyway, guys, that's it for the Gaming News for today. Thank you so much, as always, to all the new followers. I do 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.

There is a lot more to my gaming history than what I've written above and if you want to talk to me about it feel free to pop by my Twitch Live Stream sometime and say hello!

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.

Please take care of yourself first, tips are not needed by me to do what I do. You can find my tip link and Amazon Wish List linked on my Twitch Profile. If you do tip remember there are no refunds, so be sure. You can save money by using Prime Gaming to subscribe rather than paying money! Twitch Turbo will give you Ad Free viewing to the entire site rather than just my stream page so would be a better use of your money!
