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.
It's just a few short days away but it's almost here. The PlayStation Experience will be held on December 3rd-4th at the Anaheim Convention Center. There's a lot going on over these two days including the PlayStation Showcase, which kicks off the event, panels, video game leagues, and loads of announcements. Now that's just a snapshot of what's going on, for more information and where you can watch said event check out the official PlayStation Blog.
I'm excited for this. Falling a day after the Game Awards, this event guarantees that my weekend will be fully video game focused.
With the end of the year quickly approaching it's that time again. The Game Awards are slated for December 1st at 9 PM EST at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Pretty soon we'll get to see which games are elected winner of their respective categories. With 2016 begin a great year for games, the Awards will be exciting, to say the least, plus the possibility of getting a glimpse at upcoming games isn't bad either.
If you're looking to tune into the Game Awards, you can catch it on several platforms including: YouTube, Facebook, and Twitch. You can also watch it on your Xbox One or PS4.
I'm looking forward to the winners and announcements from the show.
There's a rumor floating around that there will be a new Marvel Vs. Capcom in 2017 and that the announcement will happen during the PlayStation Experience Event (more on this in a subsequent post) in a few days.
I'm not sure how I feel about this one. I liked Marvel vs Capcom 3 but I didn't enjoy it as much as Marvel vs Capcom 2. I felt like it was missing something but hopeful the next iteration can fix that. Looking forward to seeing if this is true of not.
I don't know how I missed this one especially since I've eagerly awaiting it's release. Telltale released the latest episode of their Batman series, Guardian of Gotham, earlier this week on November 22nd. Once all this Thankgiving and Black Friday festivities are over I will get to continue the story of Bruce Wayne and Batman to see where my choice will take me.
The next season of Telltale's Games The Walking Dead titled A New Frontier has an official release date. Players and fans alike will be able to continue the story on December 20th. Along with the first episode, Telltale will also release a Season Pass for all additional content in the price of $24.99. If you're looking to purchase the physical copy of the game, that will be released in February of next year.
As someone who's been enjoying the Telltale games for the pass few month I'm looking forward to this game.
The entire time I was watching this I was laughing, right down to the very end. With Final Fantasy XV out in a few short days, Conan played the game on his show segment, Clueless Gamer. He made light of many things from their fashion sense to the gameplay. Nothing was off the table.
Super Mario Run, announced a few months ago at Apple's event has an official release date. The game will be released on December 15th. The game is free to download but it will have in-game transactions to unlock additional features.
Super Mario Run will be release in 151 countries and in 10 different languages. That's alot Nintendo. Android users will have to wait until 2017 to get their hands on this one.
In another trailer that dropped alongside the Mass Effect Andromeda Cinematic Reveal Trailer, the Andromeda Initiative Orientation Briefing takes a different tact but reveals a lot more about the game.
We find out the reason for the 600 year long journey which is basically to find habitable worlds in the Andromeda system. We also learn that their are three Arks including Hyperion, the one you're on, with a main hub called the Nexus that will be traveling to the Andromeda system. On each Ark is a Pathfinder, a mix of soldier, scientist and guide who runs the show.
The video goes on to say over the next coming weeks we'll be granted access to information about Arks, ground vehicles, first contact protocols and weapons and biotics training should we be accepted onto the Pathfinder team.

It's N7 day, the day that has become synonymous with everything Mass Effect. Today we are celebrating Mass Effect Andromeda with a Cinematic Reveal trailer. In the trailer we get to meet our protagonist that will herald us into the new frontier, our pathfinder. We also get a glimpse of our enemy, monsters and the environments we'll get to visit. If this trailer is any indication of what this game will be like, I think one word sums it up -- EPIC.
I have to say from the brief pieces of gameplay mixed in throughout this trailer the game looks beautiful and I wouldn't expect anything less. My wish for Andromeda is to put me back into that same place that Mass Effect 2 did.
Expect to get your hands on Mass Effect Andromeda next Spring.
The Overwatch League is Blizzards new eSport League where seasoned players compete against each other world wide. Each team in the League will represent a city and each team will encompass team owners, team players and each team will have their own structure. It's a lot and a bold venture that Blizzard is undertaking.
Blizzard has pulled the curtain back on their latest addition to the Overwatch roster. Sombra, an infiltrator with the the ability to cloak, teleport short range and hack enemy abilities and pickups. It would seem that she's out for her own sake and not interested in the motivations of others. Information is power as she puts it. I think I love her. As usual Blizzard has release a new gameplay video as well as an animated short to showoff Sombra.
This announcement comes alongside the Overwatch League which I'll put in another post but Overwatch has a lot coming down the pipeline.
Unlock more with the Watch Dogs 2 Season Pass including additional missions, new co-op difficulty modes, outfits, vehicles and a lot more customization items.
It goes without saying that there aren't may fans of a game having a season pass, myself included. If feels as though they're hiding the content behind an additional fee. I'll definitely play Watch Dogs 2 but is shelling out more money for the season pass worth it? We'll have to wait and see.
