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 was a busy weekend and I completely missed this one, but being a long-time fan of the fighting series I always enjoy these little surprises. Final Fantasy XV's Noctis will be going the ranks of Jin and the rest. Granted I would have loved to see one of the older Tekken characters returning like say Bruce or even Gon, just for laughs. However, seeing as we have Akuma from Street Fighter in the game what's another crossover character. I do like how they've made his moves part of his fighting style and it looks to work well with all the new mechanics of Tekken 7.

There has been an ongoing debate as to the current state of the video game industry as it concerns single-player games and if it's dying out. Now, I can completely understand where this is coming from in light of recent trends where games have adopted more of a service model to get gamers to shell out more money over time. I have my own grievances with that but I won't go into that here. With that being said, I have to say that I don't believe that single-player games are on their way out.
Here's why. While more and more games are becoming multiplayer focused with the inclusion of certain services, take for instance Overwatch and more recently PUBG but let's not also forget Assasin's Creed Origins. We're seeing that games are coming with ways for publishers to get gamers to spend more than just the price of the game. If it's not a season pass or special editions of these games then there are loot boxes and add-ons to make the game more accessible. I thin…
And in regular Blizzard fashion for Blizzcon. This year we're also getting a new warrior on the Overwatch roster. Let me take the time to introduce to you, Moira. She's a bit of an unusual one to say the lease but that's to be expected from Overwatch.
OMG. There are certain instances when E3 is happening that a great game is announced. This is that instance. BIOWARE just announced their next game and man is it beautiful. It's an open-world RPG much like, and I hate to make the comparison but, Destiny. Only thing is, it looks so accessible. I'll get the Xbox One X just so that I can play this game with friends and experience it at it's best.
This Prey reboot is shaping up to be a different type of shooter. One releasing on May 5th according to this trailer. In this trailer, we get a glimpse at the story and more gameplay. I'm looking forward to this game.
It's been some time since I saw anything for Injustice 2 and one of the most important things I was hoping for was a release date. Well here it is, May 19th. We can jump back into the story of Injustice with new and returning characters including Darkside and Brainiac.
We finally get a release day for the long anticipated The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and we won't have to wait too long. The game will be released on March 3rd as a Nintendo Switch release game. This news comes straight from the Nintendo Switch event that occurred yesterday.
Happy New Year to everyone. I wanted to wait until next week to start posting for the new year but we're already receiving great news about upcoming games. One such piece of news is Mass Effect Andromeda's release date. The game is set to be released on March 21st in the US and the 23rd in the UK. That is right around the corner.
Also coming out of CES is a new gameplay vid that shows off some of the menus and how you switch different abilities and classes.
