Battlefield 2042 Reddit Backlash, E3 2022 Online Only, Monster Hunter Rise PC Release | Gaming News

Monster Hunter Rise PC Release

Hello, guys, and welcome to the Gaming News for 07 Jan 2022. Monster Hunter tweeted out saying "Monster Hunter Rise arrives on PC on 12 Jan 2022, with a sweet set of screen filters. Black & White, Sepia, Japanese Style, Warring Lands Style and Cinema Style." And they have also released a new launch trailer for what the game will look like on PC. If you're interested in Monster Hunter Rise know that it's coming out next Wednesday.

E3 2022 Online Only

The next bit of news for today is it looks like E3 2022 is going to be online only again for the third year in a row. On IGN they posted an article where it says "The ESA has canceled this in person event for E3 2022 according to a statement shared with IGN by the ESA." The ESA is ESA Foundation who runs E3. "But while they point to upcoming events, the future of the show this year and beyond remains unclear. Due to ongoing health risk surrounding (the pandemic) and its potential impact on the safety of exhibitors and attendees, E3 will not be held in person in 2022. Reads the statement sent to IGN by the ESA. We remain incredibly excited about the future of E3 and look forward to announcing more details soon." As an avid gamer myself, I look forward to these big shows because like The Game Awards and so on to see all the new announcements and a lot of game developers save their announcements for these big events. Regardless of whether it's in person or online, hopefully we'll get some really good trailers this year.

Battlefield 2042 Reddit Backlash

And the last bit of news for today is Andy McNamara, who is the global head of communications for shooters and Star Wars at EA, tweeted out saying "Back to work today. Check Reddit and Twitter and Battlefield fans are pissed we didn't do enough updates or communication during the holiday break. Guys, people gotta rest. We have things in motion, but we have to figure out what is possible. We'll address it when are 100%". And then he says "Let us get back from break and get back to work. Love you guys, but these expectations are brutal. The things you want take time to scope, design and execute." And as a result, as you can expect, there's been a massive uproar from fans on Reddit and this Tweet alone has got 12,000 up votes and 2000 comments mostly negative. And since then he's deleted this tweet and issued an apology. And there's been backlash about the apology. They just want a bug free game from looking at the community, which is to be expected really. And the memes and the videos of the bugs and so on for me personally are hilarious because I'm not really into these sort of games, I haven't been for a long time, so it's interesting to see another PR disaster for a company. And basically all I would say to that is that there are so many other developers who are worthy of the passion and love that right now Battlefield is getting. And when you see the amount of uproar on Reddit, it just shows passion. It shows that people really want this game to succeed and they don't want to be led this way. If they don't fix it quickly, then who knows what will happen eventually turned their back on the game and then just not go back to it, which is to be expected as well. 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.
