A Video Gamers Digest
Video Games are a unique media that are enjoyed by people, both young and old worldwide. Adults, teens, and kids all play games to escape to a fantasy world, educate themselves, get up and dance or just socialize with friends.
My aim in creating Games News Network is to build a place where I could show others all the great games, media and news that come out of the industry. It's all about giving back to an industry that has given gamers so much.
OUYA Kickstarter Ends
When the OUYA kickstarter first launched I don't think
anyone would have anticipated the amount of support it would receive and man
did it receive a lot of support. The OUYA kickstarter capped off
yesterday well above its initial goal of 950K and ended at a little above 8.5M
with over 63, 000 backers. This is clearly a node to the big
three, OUYA is here and it's going to be big.
it's announcement there have been several big reveals about OUYA; the first is
that it will allow for streaming games using Onlive, they've announced their
first 1st party title-Human Element, and several media streaming services will
also be part of OUYA including VEVO, iHeartRadio, XBMC and TuneIn. Additionally
OUYA has partnered with Square Enix to put Final Fantasy III on the console.
is causing quite a stir and you can expect more news before anyone can get
their hands on the console which is expected to ship to backers in March 2013
and to everyone else sometime after.
Kingdom Hearts III has gone GOLD. To say that sounds like something so long in the making; to be able to finally say it feels surreal. We have just a little over two months to catch up on the previous games (should you so choose) but I know I'll be doing that. I can't believe it's finally about to happen. I'll get to continue and finish Sora's journey I began so long ago (T.T).

I want to start a weekly series of discussion post where a topic is picked and we have an open discussion of our thoughts and opinions. I have a few topics in mind but I open the floor to suggestions.
In the video game industry, today's games usually have several modes unique to them. Two of those modes, single-player and multiplayer have become a norm for most game. Single-player is all about experiencing the story behind the game, watching beautifully rendered cut scenes and getting to know the main character(s). Multiplayer on the other hand is all about interacting with multiply players across the world while adhering to the game world and mechanics. There are a variety of different multiplayer game types, players may individually compete against two or more human contestants, work cooperatively to achieve a goal, or engage in a game type that incorporates any combination mentioned above.
In the past few years the line between the two modes have started to blur, you can see game…
It's over 105GB. You heard that right, 105GB. That is an absurd amount but that it is. Red Dead Redemption 2 is a massive open world game that lets you do probably anything you can think of if we're going by the latest gameplay trailer (TRAILER). Rockstar has been known for creating such an immersive experience that this should come as no surprise. Just look at GTA V. That game is massive and they've just built upon that formula.
Red Dead Redemption is a few short weeks away from being released on October 26th. I know what I'll be playing that weekend and I'm all set to enjoy this massive game.
