Video game addiction has become an official disease

Зависимость от видеоигр стала официальной болезнью

Last year we were told that the world Health Organization has made for 2018 year, in the list of official diseases and a disease called “video game Addiction”. Then we still laughed at the fact that the disease is far-fetched, and that it may not approve, but it was serious.

The disease approved. Approved and come up with a description. Not to bore you with medical terms, note that doctors are separate online and offline games, share gaming genres that, in their opinion, cause different types of addiction, and list problems experienced by patients. In particular, this deterioration of family, educational, social and professional spheres of life. By the way, online game the doctors called more harmful than offline.

And we are for this reason concerned about one question: would it be possible for these patients to rely on the official hospital for the slope from the study, to obtain more output at work, or even benefits for a disability? If not, then a penny the price to all these things.

Hideo kojima, in another interview, answered a reporter’s question about criticism on the part of his admirers, among whom not everyone likes the use of star actors in Death Stranding.

Specifically, it is called “the process of legalizing the use of famous actors in the gaming industry”. Many do not care that this particular character was removed from the famous Hollywood personality. Gamers, he says, is far from the movie, so they don’t like that huge amount is spent on fees to these guys.

This kojima said that the game will be nothing like that of the famous actors involved in the shooting, will be playable only Sam, played by Norman Reedus, and all. To which unnecessary costs, kojima admitted that he just likes to make a movie, and he respects the cinematography in video games, but to abuse it is not.

Fallout 76 boosts tourism

Fallout 76 стимулирует туризм

Interesting story happened to a natural reserve called Cadman Park, which is located in the state of West Virginia. Suddenly the traffic of the website dedicated to the Park climbed from 3000 to 20 thousand per day, and the phone began to disrupt many calls. People began to order the tickets or interested in purchasing Souvenirs.

It was very strange, but not stranger than the appearance of this news with us. Why are we telling you about this? And then, after a small investigation, the nature reserve staff found that all the fault is the announcement of Fallout 76, game that by a large margin defeated all of his competitors from E3, if you count popularity by views in YouTube. The fact that the events of Fallout 76 will develop just in this state, which, incidentally, is famous for its tourist attractions. Therefore, there was very happy here this sudden is.

I wonder what domestic video games sparked such interest? After World of Tanks and WarThunder, the crowds flocked to the military museums. Stalker powerfully promoted the interest in the tours to Chernobyl, and Metro has raised the interest in underground communications underground. Does the history of similar examples?

Electronic Arts suddenly intensified discussion of the problem of crossplatforming for FIFA. After many years of rejection, there seem to change your mind, and it is possible that in the future FIFA 19 between them will be able to play console gamers and PC-schnick.

In particular, the situation was commented by the creative Director of EA Sports, Matt Prior. Further, the direct speech: “cross-platform is what we need. I make no promises, but this feature is now for us the main theme. It is as relevant as ever. If you asked me about cross-platform several years ago, I would say this will not happen. But now things have changed. We will monitor the situation, because the cross-platform – useful for players.”

But the perspective there is one insurmountable obstacle: Sony, whose bosses do not want anyone to share his PlayStation, so if something happens, it should be about Xbox One, PC, and maybe Nintendo Switch.

The Executive producer of Bethesda Game Studios, Todd Howard has stunned the public statement that The Elder Scrolls 6 already has a release date. It is assigned and it is selected appropriate marketing company, however Mr. Howard, like the postman Pechkin, this very date, we will not name. Not because we have “no documents”, and because I do not want to upset anyone.

The reason is simple: The Elder Scrolls 6 seems to be released later than Cyberpunk 2077. For if the second has threatened to leave on the current generation consoles, the elder Scrolls, according to Mr. Howard, for the next generation.

Well, as long as developers are developing the project game concept and art style. So no new announcements for many months, and all we can do is keep your ear to the ground hoping to catch some interesting rumor.

By the way, the rumors that The Elder Scrolls 6 is in development, roamed the Network in the last year. For example, a game analyst Michael Pakter, many months before E3, I said that’d be extremely surprised if Bethesda don’t announce until the end of the year The Elder Scrolls 6.

Stereogram – a special picture, for a seemingly meaningless lurid background, which actually carries the optical illusion that you can consider if relax look that is not all. So, in this stereogram has transformed the classic shooter DOOM, which is called the OMDO.
