Apex Legends PS5 120 FPS

Hello, guys, and welcome to the Gaming News for 15 Jan 2022. PlayStation Game Size tweeted out saying "Apex Legends (PS5) apparently has an 80 GB download without updates". It's hinting that there might be a native PlayStation 5 port for Apex Legends coming out soon. And Steven Ferreira, who is the game director at Respawn Vancouver, posted on Reddit about 11 months ago saying "120 FPS is one of our goals. And as we continue to look at Next Gen features and balance between what we think is best for the overall play experience for Next Gen, we're keeping this in mind. Can't promise anything, but with the core mechanics feel of Apex being such an important piece of the player experience, this one is high on the priority list." In competitive Battle Royale type games high FPS means that you have a quicker response time when, for example, you fire your weapon. That's why high frame rates are important. We will see. If you're still playing Apex Legends or if you're interested, know that a PlayStation 5 port could be coming out soon.

Dying Light 2 Future Plans

And then the next bit of news for today is Sheri, who is the influencer lead at Techland Games, who are the creators behind Dying Light, has tweeted out saying "We'll be committing to five years of game support post launch, which means more story DLC, more events, more locations, more in game items. Personally, this is one of the main reasons why I joined Techland in the first place. Gamers first." In a couple of weeks time, Dying Light 2 is going to be launching and they've already said there's going to be 500 hours worth of content and they're saying it's going to be supported for the long term. Hopefully, we will see what the game is like when it fully launches.

Troy Baker on NFTs

And then the last bit of news for today is Troy Baker, who was the voice actor behind Joel in The Last of Us or Higgs in Death Stranding, as well as many others tweeted out saying, "I'm partnering with VoiceverseNFT to explore ways where (together) we might bring new tools to new creators to make new things and allow everyone the chance to own and invest in the IPs they create. We all have a story to tell. You can hate or you can create. What will it be?". And you can imagine that this has been met with a huge amount of backlash and a huge amount of negativity because it includes NFTs. And then from the voiceover community, as in from other voice actors, they said that the purpose of this company is to replace voice actors with AI technology, which again has led to a lot of anger. And then he followed it up by tweeting out saying, "I always want to be part of this conversation, even if sometimes that finds me in the midst of a loud one. I appreciate you all sharing your thoughts and giving me a lot to think about. I'm just a storyteller out here trying to tell my story to whoever will hear and hoping I can help others do the same. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I'm grateful there are those who are passionate about their stance and not only feel safe to express that but also have the means to do so. The hate create part might have been a bit antagonistic. I hope you'll forgive me for that. Bad attempt to bring levity. Anyway, feel free to resume the conversation or not as you please. I appreciate those with truth showing it, those with support offering it and those with anger doing their best to express it." I personally am against NFTs. I think they are silly. I think they have no value whatsoever and they will have no value even in the long term. I think it's just a gimmick but we will see what people decide to do with them in the future. Everyone is free to make their own mind and I personally will be staying away from NFPs completely. 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.

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.
