Disney

Disney has been seen to take a very deep interest in the world of eSports. It’s not so strange to see a multi-million company doing so, to be honest. However, in an act that could be surprising. Disney has made it clear that they want to make the happiest place on earth an eSports arena.

Disney’s plans to make eSports Happen.

According to a Forbes report. Disney is now actively considering hosting eSports events at their own facilities in Orlando, Florida. To be specific, it would happen at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports complex. Which hosts a broad variety of sporting activities ranging from baseball to tennis, and is in the midst of celebrating its 20th year of operation.

With such accolades. Disney looks to expand the complex by adding an 8,000 seat arena which will span over 300,000 square feet and open in January 2018.  With Disney World’s Vice President of Sports Faron Kelley saying that eSports would “come here very soon,” making the company’s intentions clear.

If people saw Disney’s previous decisions. This one wouldn’t seem that surprising. One of Disney’s Cable-TV networks (Disney XD) has seen the grand finals of EVO 2017. They also made a partnership deal with big company ESL. This pretty much shows that Disney has been looking forward to make a rentable business out of the eSports scene.

Imagine how incredible it would be to have such things happening. Playing Overwatch finals in the happiest place on earth? I’m all down for it. And I’m sure many of the people who go there will flock to see the events playing out. It certainly could be a very good push for eSports to form part of the mainstream media. Is it a good step or a bad one? Only time will tell of course, but I am very excited to see how this plays out.

I always wanted to be a journalist who listens. The Voice of the Unspoken and someone heavily involved in the gaming community. From playing as a leader of a competitive multi-branch team to organizing tournaments for the competitive scene to being involved in a lot of gaming communities. I want to keep moving forward as a journalist.

Speculations about the inclusion of The Answer in the latest Persona 3 Reload have been circulating for some time now and seem to be gaining credibility. After being played for some time, new evidence suggests that more SEES action is on the horizon. Caution: Spoilers ahead for Persona 3 Reload!

Completing the game on merciless difficulty will result in Elizabeth from The Velvet Room giving you a cryptic clue, hinting that The Answer is approaching. According to PC Gamer, YouTuber Faz used a cheat engine to reach that stage and record the conversation. Elizabeth delivers players a mysterious message: “At the end of a great trial, the answer illuminates my path.”

The Answer occurs after the events of Persona 3, focusing on the cyborg warrior Aigis in the weeks following the game’s climax and offering around 30 hours of content. Persona 3 Reload feels unfinished until its latest update, which follows the trend of Atlus finding ways to release enhanced versions of their games, like Persona 4 Golden or Persona 5 Royal. Speculations were circulating about The Answer being in development, which aligns with the findings of dataminers. However, an official confirmation is still pending.

Is it possible that we will uncover the answer in Persona 3 Reload? Are you eagerly anticipating it? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Remedy Entertainment has recently revealed that they now have complete ownership of the Control IP, which was previously shared with 505 Games. Remedy allegedly spent 17 million euros for the opportunity; nevertheless, 505 Games will continue as the publisher until 2024 during the transition.

In a recent press release, CEO Tero Virtala mentioned that the company will thoroughly evaluate its options, acknowledging the widespread appeal of the Control franchise among various partners. Furthermore, Virtala shared a quick update on the other ongoing projects now that Alan Wake 2 has been released. “Condor and Control 2 have made significant progress recently, and we anticipate these projects to advance to the next stages of development by the first half of 2024.”

Condor is the codename for Remedy’s multiplayer game set in the Control universe. Control 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the first game, was announced in late 2022 following the developer’s new publishing agreement with 505 Games. The Finnish game studio managed to create a brand-new path for the future at some point in their journey, perhaps as a result of recent successes.

How do you feel about Remedy gaining control of the Control IP from 505 Games? Are you looking forward to what the future holds for the series? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Neil Druckmann, the head of Naughty Dog, is not planning to create games indefinitely

Neil Druckmann, the president of Naughty Dog, believes he may not continue creating video games indefinitely, especially not on the grand scale we’re accustomed to from the renowned creative. He is widely recognized for his contributions to Uncharted and The Last of Us. His positive experience adapting the latter for HBO, combined with a shift in priorities towards family, led him to consider making a significant change.

Druckmann’s reflections were captured in an interview with rapper Logic on his YouTube show, Logically Thinking (thanks to VGC), where he mused, “I guess that I don’t see myself doing this forever at this scale.”. Talking about the importance of spending quality time with one’s children, the subject resonated with the Naughty Dog boss, leading to a thoughtful conversation:

“You mentioned entering a new phase in life where your kids are the top priority, and I can relate because my kids are also my main focus… I understand the value of time and prioritize spending it wisely, especially when others want to share it with me. I’m currently at a stage in my life where I’m contemplating my ultimate goal. When is the right moment to decide to end it?

Druckmann is likely referring to stepping away from AAA game development and studio management to avoid the overwhelming anxiety that comes with those responsibilities, as he mentioned that it can be draining. Managing a large number of people and multiple studios worldwide can be quite overwhelming.

However, he would still need a place to channel all that creativity, and he might not be the only one to fall for Hollywood’s allure: “I can envision myself moving towards something that’s more laid-back and less stressful but still allows me to express my creativity. However, I’ve begun contemplating the number of similar games I have left in me, and it’s not a large quantity.

How many additional projects do you anticipate Neil Druckmann leading? Regardless of the quantity, his impact is expected to endure far into the future as we all eventually depart this world. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
