It seems like every so often after a tragedy someone decides its the fault of video games. Before we go any further by the way, this transcends party lines. At one point Democrat?Hillary Clinton?took her shots at the industry and she wasn’t alone. The original Mortal Kombat was also attacked from what seemed like all sides for what was touted as realistic violence and blood.
This time around however it is American Republicans. Recently?Donald Trump?also decided to blame violent video games and movies and according to?Robert Nardolillo?of Rhode Island they actually need a special Tax applied to them, which while it would help schools it would exclusively be used to punish gamers for an alleged issue being caused by games that I will discuss in a minute, but spoiler, science mostly says otherwise.
In a recent study from the University of?New York?found no evidence to support the claim that video games make players more violent and in the opinion of?Jesse Marczyk, Ph.D?this claim also holds no water. There is also some simple common sense to this tho. Violent video games are played all over the world, yet these shootings aren’t an issue in every country. Hell it isn’t even an issue in every state tho I promise you will find a copy of Grand Theft Auto in all 50 states. Another study also?shows?no link between violent games and movies and real life violence.
I do apologize for all the links on this one by the way, I know they can be annoying at times. I do however realize this subject can be very divisive and I did want to share the source of where the claim was coming from in case people wanted to see that for themselves. Best wishes, and may the gaming gods bring you safety and glory.
In a surprise move Square Enix released Chrono Trigger on the PC. This limited edition comes with the special dungeons that came later and with some special soundtracks as well. If you look at the Steam reviews however you quickly see people are not pleased that this classic and well-loved game is back. The reason? It is a port of the mobile version that was plagued with issues with the UI and graphics that were simply not fixed when ported to the PC. The full game is there, but be cautious as many people are not pleased. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
When EA confirmed that Anthem would miss 2018 due to a new Battlefield game, rumors began swirling that the series would be returning to the Bad Company side of things with the latest installment. Not so fast! If a report from Venturebeat.com is correct, the series will be returning to.. World War II?!? After the?[¡]

Many fans have been clamoring for years about wanting a new and good Tony Hawk Pro Skater, despite 5 being a train wreck when it released. Or at the very least a remaster or even just turning the servers back on for the old ones. Something to let people back on their boards for the games they love. I am no stranger to the series myself, tho I am far from being the hardcore fan many are. Sadly after Neversoft closed back in 2014 it seemed the series may have been done, but now that Tony Hawk has confirmed he no longer works with Activision whom also owns the rights to Tony Hawks Pro Skater it seems the series may be dead and gone for good. More on that can be found?here. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
Much to the surprise of not a single gamer in existence There is what amounts to a game of the year edition of Injustice 2 coming out March 27th (the 30th in Europe) and will come with all the DLC as well as raise the level cap to 30.

This week something interesting happened, according to?Rolling Stone?Fortnight became the most watched game on Twitch with an average of over 140 thousand people beating out both League of Legends and PUBG. Not bad for a free game i’d say. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
Yup, this is not a drill. Coming in 2018 is none other than Super Smash Brothers, on the Nintendo Switch. The exact date is te be determined, but enjoy the trailer below. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
Yes, you read that correctly. That picture is 100% accurate. On April 24th South Park: The Fractured But Whole is coming to the Nintendo Switch, and you will be able to buy the DLC as an individual download or individually. Now if you are one of the rare people that own a Switch and nothing else or simply want to know if its worth buying. In simple terms, yes it is. If you want more details, you can find my review below. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole (2nd Opinion)
Every so often Nintendo makes me type something up that just makes me say WTF because i never expected it. Like when Dark Souls Remastered was announced..at a Nintendo Direct because it was going to also be on the Switch. Now as you may have guessed there will be an Amiibo..for Dark Souls…Yea so thats a thing. I couldn’t find any info on it, but hey its a Dark Souls Amiibo so thats cool.
Other news everyone will be getting a Dark Souls Remastered Network test before launch!!! except for the people on PC, apparently you guys can go to hell. My bad guys. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
According to?comicbook.com?there was a recent Q&A with?Netflix executive Scott Mirer and he had nothing but great things to say about their relationship with Nintendo. As we all know the Nintendo Switch is doing amazing, but at launch they were focused on games and it appears for now they still are. It also took quite a bit of time for Netflix to show up on other Nintendo devices, and for now the Switch will be no different. Scott Mirer seemed optimistic its just a matter of when it comes to the Switch, not if, but the time doesn’t seem to be now. Hopefully for Nintendo owners tho that time is soon. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
