Xbox Game Pass on Steam, Steam Deck Out Now, God of War Ragnarok Release Date | Gaming News





God of War Ragnarok Release Date

Hello, guys, and welcome to the Gaming News for the 26 Feb 2022. A Chilean retailer is saying that God of War Ragnarok is going to come out in June 2022. It might be just a placeholder, but we will see if there's any more information about that in the future. I think a lot of people are very excited about the sequel to God of War, so we will see if we get more details about that soon.

Steam Deck Out Now

And the next bit of news for today is Valve's Steam Deck is now available for preorder, but there's been some supply chain issues, so you won't get it until the second quarter of 2022 if you buy now. But it's a handheld console that will be able to play most of the Steam library, not all of it, but most of it. If you're looking to play PC games on the fly, then the Steam Deck is for you also as well. Digital Foundry did a really detailed analysis of the performance of the Steam Deck, saying that it runs equivalent to a PlayStation 4, in some cases even better, obviously with a much smaller resolution.

Xbox Game Pass on Steam

And the last bit of news for today is there is speculation that Xbox Game Pass might be coming to Steam. Recently, Bethesda announced that it's retiring its own launcher to move to Steam. And when Gabe Newell, who is the CEO of Valve, was asked if they would make a Steam Game Pass by PC Gamer, he replied saying, "I don't think it's something that we think we need to do ourselves. Building a subscription service at this time, but for their customers is clearly a popular option, and we'd be more than happy to work with them to get that on Steam." And then there's also a tweet from Phil Spencer, who is the head of Xbox replying to the Steam Deck that says, "This looks really great. Congrats to the team at Valve on getting so many of us excited to be able to take our games with us wherever we decide to play." Of course, it's not a confirmation or announcement. Maybe, we'll get an announcement soon if Xbox Game Pass is going to come to Steam as well. Hopefully, it will, I think it would be a really good partnership. 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.
