Dark Souls 3 PC Exploits, N64 Emulation on Switch Improving, Digital Foundry Feature | Gaming News





Dark Souls 3 PC Exploits

Hello, guys, and welcome to the Gaming news for 23 Jan 2022. SkeleMann's Twitter account tweeted out saying "PSA Dark Souls 3 PC. Hey folks, on PC there is a new very serious exploit, plaguing Dark Souls 3, which can cause lasting damage to your computer. This could break your PC, let your login information be shared or execute programs in the background." And he goes on to explain in more detail about what he's found. Potentially, right now there's an exploit going on in Dark Souls 3 PC. It might be worth looking into that and potentially being cautious when approaching the game just to make sure that you keep your PC safe.

N64 Emulation on Switch Improving

And the next bit of news for today is the Twitter account Yakumono tweeted out saying "I finally have the Nintendo 64 NSO update data. Whatever fix they did for Zelda Ocarina of Time, it was not added as a hack, seems to be an actual emulator fix." And then again he goes on in more detail explaining it. I am personally still waiting to play Zelda Ocarina of Time again, because it is my favorite game of all time, on Nintendo Switch. And when it first launched there were some issues with the performance. What these people, who are looking into it are saying, or speed runners and so on, is that the issues might actually be with the emulation on Switch rather than the game itself. We will see with more time if Nintendo continue to fix the emulation software they're using on Nintendo Switch and then hopefully I can jump into the game when it's deemed worthy.

Digital Foundry Feature

This week's feature and shout out is going to go to Digital Foundry. Digital Foundry is a YouTube channel where they do analysis about the performance of games across different platforms as well as technologies being used, whether certain textures are being properly loaded or certain technologies smooth out the graphics properly and stuff like that. And they do really in depth analysis of each game that they cover and they talk about hardware that's available as well, graphics cards and so on. Please check out Digital Foundry. They also have a Patreon where you can download the best version of the videos. And also they put a lot of work into their channel. It's really obvious when you look at it. They themselves have said that a typical video can be 20 to 60 hours of work. Shout out to Digital Foundry. I've been watching them for a very long time now. I think I started watching them when they had about 200K subscribers and now they have 1.2 million, so it's been great to watch their growth. 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.
