Kind of a serious issue to talk about here, video game addiction. it's all fun and games when you binge on a video game for a night or two. But if it becomes a regular thing, as apparently it has for some Fortnite addicts (one player mentioned clocks in 12 hours a day!), then it's time to get some help.
From the article: "For now, Fortnite is the game of choice. On a recent afternoon, the game was the most-viewed on Amazon.com Inc.’s Twitch streaming service, with 250,000 people watching others play."
This is why TRS80 Gaming is into casual games and keeping casual gaming hours. There's a world and life outside of video games, and addiction is no joke.
Sony announced that they would releasing PlayStation Classic on December 3rd, 2018. It's been almost 25 years since the original PlayStation was released so they decided to make it smaller and preload 20 games on it.
They haven't announced the whole list of games, but they're saying the following games will be preloaded:
It's going to come with 2 controllers, HDMI cables and a USB cable. The cost is $100 USD and $130 CAD. This is a pretty good price considering you get to play classic games.
If you have a PlayStation 4, you can actually already play PlayStation 2 games on it.
The New Eden Report is a newspaper written for the game EVE Online. It looks interesting and this article talks about the day to day of the newspaper editor.
The Steam client has been updated and the chat interface is much much better. What I really like is that you can see your friends in the friends list by game. I was doing this manually before; because it was awesome to see a list of 5-10 people for the games that we both have. It made it easy to find people to play CSGO or Civilization 5 with.
It even works on the web too, no need to download a client to chat with people on Steam!
