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.
My Eminent Return
Hello there, if you're reading this you've probably noticed that I haven't done a posting in quite some time. There's a reason for that. Let me explain.
You see over the past few months I've been busy, with a lot of different things. So much so that I haven't been able to sit down and write a blog post or even put a few hours towards my favorite game(s). For starters I moved into a new position at work with a lot more responsibility and workload. Right after that I started looking into a new house while trying to release a Sci-Fi book I wrote and plan my upcoming wedding. I'm now have my own place with two weeks remaining for said wedding. Most would say that's quite a lot and yes I would agree but I wouldn't change anything that's happened in the past few months.
But now that all these major life changes will soon be behind me I plan to throw myself back into the fray with games, blogs and my writing. How do I plan to do that? Well I've pre-ordered this beast to help:
Yes that is exactly what it looks like. The Halo 5, 1 TB Xbox One. It's so lovely. Currently I don't have any of the current gen consoles and this will be the first I get. Words cannot express how excited I am to get this. More so than getting married in a few days (if my to be wife reads this, she'd have a few words about that). I'm looking forward to playing some great games with amazing graphics and gameplay and getting lost in unknown worlds with unknown heroes.
I know what you're thinking. I won't have time to play much with a wife and house that will take up all my attention, but the best thing about my wife, she's a gamer. So she can join me on some of my adventures and I can't wait. With what I've seen in terms of games coming out in the next few months [not to mention the several dozen that will soon be backwards compatible], we have a lot of options for co-op play.
With that said getting back to writing about games and playing them will be a nice change of pace. I hope everyone that reads this will come back as I begin a new adventure in life and with video games. It should be fun.
The year 2020 was set to be a phenomenal year for video games; and don't get me wrong, it still is. However, a lot of the games that were coming out early in the year have since been DELAYED. The Final Fantasy VII Remake, Doom Eternal and now the wildly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt Red, creators of the acclaimed Witcher series has also been delayed.
How long is this delay you ask? Well the game was set to be out in April but now it's slated for September. That is an unbelievably long time to wait for a game that's been on everyone wanted list. Sigh.
CD Projekt Red confirmed the delay via a message on their twitter page and the later in an official post.
Sad to see this happen to a game I was literally planning on making my life for the next few years.
It's so close I can taste it. TASTE IT!!! Kingdom Hearts III is nearly upon us and here's the Opening Cinematic trailer. This trailer gives you all the feels and paints you a brief overview of all the Kingdom Hearts game leading up to the final battle.

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…
