Esports have become really popular over the past few years. There are plenty of games esports players can choose between, starting from shooters to the ones that take physical sports into the video world. It is not surprising that ice hockey simulation video games have become quite popular in Canada. After all, they do love the real deal too. The video games, however, probably won’t result in bloody fights. At least, the players won’t get hurt, only their avatars in the games. The next EA Sports NHL 18 Tournament is now only 10 days away.

The event will take place on August 4th, possibly on August 5th too, depending on the number of people who entered the tournament. At this particular tournament, according to the organizers, the game will be played on Xbox One devices. As the majority of readers probably know by now, EA Sports NHL 18 was released both on PlayStation 4 and on Xbox One back in 2017. The entry already closed for this tournament, so there is no more chance to sign up for it. Those who did enter the tournament needed to be over 15 (those under 18 need their parents’ or legal guardians’ consents though) and pay a $20 entry fee. For this, they get to play at least 2 matches in 1 vs 1 tournament style format.

Also, it is notable that according to the organizers, for those who get eliminated, other games will be available to be played. Naturally, players won’t need to go to the tournament with their own equipment. Organizers will provide the consoles, games, controllers, and the monitors for them. The event will take place at 320 BAYFIELD STREET, BARRIE ON, at the Bayfield Mall, to be more specific. Even if you didn’t get a chance to sign up for the EA Sports NHL 18 Tournament, it could still be interesting to watch others play, at least for a while.

EA Sports NHL 18 is the 27th installment in the NHL video game series and it comes with several new features, including a smaller rink, bigger hits, and a different announcer. Players will definitely notice that mascots are now also playable. The game has been released almost a year ago, and it successfully managed to make video games players fall in love with it. The changes in the gameplay might not be spectacular, but the game is still fun to play and, to be honest, quite addictive.

As we already mentioned, Esports have become really popular over the past few years. There are not only individuals who love to play them, but also entire teams. Basically, they are just as fun as the physical sports and the players are just as serious about playing them as the football players or hockey players on the field or on the rink. Even those who don’t like to play sports but love to bet on them have embraced esports. People can easily place bets on esports now, the same way as they do on physical sports. They can even do it online, through the best betting apps.

The developer of War Thunder says sorry after images of the Challenger space shuttle disaster surface

Gaijin Entertainment, the developer of War Thunder, has recently issued an apology for a concerning oversight in their new key art. Observant fans noticed that the imagery used in the artwork closely resembles the distinct debris trail from the tragic 1986 Challenger space shuttle disaster, which claimed the lives of all seven crew members. Gaijin Entertainment acknowledges this mistake and expresses their regret.

According to Eurogamer, members of the War Thunder community, known for their keen observation skills and ability to uncover classified military information, were quick to spot the striking resemblance between the Challenger’s unique debris field and a key art piece featured in the highly anticipated Seek and Destroy update. The Challenger shuttle tragically broke apart just 70 seconds after launch, an event that was broadcast live on TV. This devastating incident marked a somber milestone in American space flight history, as it was the first time that any fatalities were recorded.

It seems that there was a minor mishap, which is quite unfortunate. A spokesperson from Gaijin Entertainment expressed their apologies for this unfortunate error on the game’s official forums: “We deeply regret this and offer our sincere apologies.” Our artists used an aerial explosion reference pack that contained the image, which resulted in the loss of its original context. We will promptly make changes to this artwork and implement measures to prevent any future occurrences of this nature.

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.
