Hogwarts Legacy Release Date, Banjo Kazooie on Nintendo Switch, Game Company Values | Gaming News

Game Company Values

Hello, guys, and welcome to the Gaming News for 19 Jan 2022. Geoff Keighley tweeted out saying "If you're wondering about other big game companies that could be acquired, here are who remains and their market caps: EA at $38B, Take Two at $18B, Nexon at $15B, Bandai Namco at $15B, Embracer at $10B, Netmarble at $7B, Ubisoft at $7B, Konami at $6B, Square Enix at $5.6B, Capcom at $4.9B and Sega at $3.6B." If I could assign different companies to be taken over, I would hope that Square Enix and Capcom, for example, are taken over by PlayStation. I would hope Nintendo take over Sega, I would hope that Microsoft take over Ubisoft because Ubisoft make a lot more PC games and so on. We'll see in the future if these different platforms snap up all these game studios if they're allowed to even.

Banjo Kazooie on Nintendo Switch

The next bit of news for today is Nintendo tweeted out saying "Embark on a wild quest with an unlikely pair. The adventures of Banjo and Kazooie begin here. Banjo Kazooie is coming to Nintendo Switch for Nintendo Switch online expansion pass members on the 20 Jan 2022." If you love Banjo Kazooie, which a lot of people from my generation do, then know that it's coming to Nintendo Switch very soon so you'll be able to jump into it.

Hogwarts Legacy Release Date

And the last bit of news for today is, which is the official website for the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts franchises posted "Hogwarts Legacy video game will be arriving this year. 2022 is also the year when the highly anticipated console game from Warner Brother Games Portkey Games label, Hogwarts Legacy, is set to be released. Developed by Avalanche Software, this action RPG allows players to be at the center of their own adventure set during the late 1800s wizarding world. From learning powerful spells and brewing potions to honing combat skills and taming magical beasts. This game will allow players to experience the magical world as a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry like never before as they determine the fate of the entire wizarding world." And it says and it recommends to watch the trailer, which I would recommend as well. It's a very interesting trailer. It's got me excited about the game the second I saw it. I hope we do get it this year and I hope it isn't delayed. 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.
