In the past, a number of games have used parenting as part of the story line, such as The Walking Dead. But none have ever used parenting to the extent Yakuza 6 and God of War use it. Parenting in these new games is a focal part of the story line.
In God of War, which is a reimagining of an old series, parenting as theme is very explicit. Kratos, who is the hero of the the game, is now living out his days with his son Atreus, and he has become somewhat mellow because of this. Much of the game play relates to helping Arteus. What’s more, often during the game Kratos interacts with his son.
Kratos becoming a father has allowed the character to become more dimensional in comparison to previous editions of the game. In those, he was simply a man bent on revenge, but in this game he is trying to become a better person, so as to be an example to his son. Also, the relationship between the two characters has a big impact on how the game unfolds.
In the game, Kratos is constantly trying to teach his son how to become self-reliant, which is necessary in a world of monsters and nasty gods. Early on, Arteus cannot help his father much in battle, but, as the game progresses, under Kratos’ tutelage he improves. Eventually, he even takes a proactive role in battles, thanks in large part to the relationship that builds between the characters. There is also an important scene in the game when Arteus disappears. This is a disappearance players can feel.
In Yakuza 6, the parenting theme is a little more subtle, but it is there as well. Kiryu, who is the protagonist of the game, is only a surrogate father to a boy. But parenting is still a key facet of the game.
PC Gamers have had precious few nice things to say about EA over the past six months, but things might start turning around here shortly. EA just announced a free release of the hit 2008 title, ‘Dead Space’. The game, developed by the dismantled Visceral Games, was released to almost universal critical acclaim and it has helped to reinvigorate the science fiction/horror genre that has so often been woefully overlooked. For fans that didn’t get a chance to play ‘Dead Space’ the first time around, now might be the perfect opportunity. All you need in order to download the free release is an Origin account.
The story of ‘Dead Space’ pulls from several of the greatest works of science fiction horror around, from ‘Alien’ to ‘The Thing’ and everything in between. The title follows Isaac Clarke, yes a pretty deliberate reference, in his journey aboard the USG Ishimura. Clarke is an engineer aboard the massive ship, known in-game as a Planet Cracker, and he is there when horrors are unleashed thanks to a relic possessed by the Unitology. The title follows Clarke as he seeks to right the very horrific wrongs that have begun to pile up aboard the ship all while he suffers from a hallucinogenic breakdown of his own. Yeah, it’s a pretty heavy title.
Fans of horror and science fiction titles owe it to themselves to get their hands on ‘Dead Space’ in order to get involved with one of the better PC single-player titles in recent memory. With that said, the game won’t be for everyone and if you are claustrophobic or tend to be filled with nightmares you might be better off turning away from this one.
EA is doing their best to try and fix their reputation after a disastrous period surrounding the release of their latest ‘Star Wars’ arena brawler, ‘Battlefront 2’ where they were heavily criticized for microtransactions and other predatory financial practices. A few great tiles being released might sway fans to be a little easier on the legendary company.
2018 has started off strong in the world of professional gaming. Games that have long been popular, like League of Legends, Counter-Strike Global Offensive and DOTA 2, continue to sport impressive viewer counts on twitch. During major tournaments, these games can each bring in well over 500,000 concurrent viewers.
The biggest news in esports this year has been Blizzard’s Overwatch League. This is the first time a game developer has ever sponsored and funded a league for their game, and so far they’ve been doing a good job of pulling in viewers. In fact, Blizzard and Twitch formed a 90-million dollar partnership for the first two seasons of the league.
Blizzard has marked a major turn in the esports world by introducing city-based teams. One of the biggest differences between esports and real sports has always been the lack of regional fan bases. With teams like the Philadelphia Flyers, Boston Uprising and Seoul Dynasty, Blizzard hopes to inspire regional Overwatch fan bases across the country and the world.
If other major esports titles take a turn in this direction, it seems only a matter of time before professional gaming is fully mainstream. In fact, some people believe it’s already there. This is especially true in certain age ranges: among 18 to 25-year-olds, esports already boast higher viewership than certain hallmark events in real sports.
The future is looking bright for professional gamers. Of course, becoming a professional gamer requires an immense amount of talent and absolute commitment to a single game. But, to put it in simple terms: yes. You can start a career in esports, and the financial reward for doing so is only expected to increase.
