Kat Cole discusses the pro's and cons of the gaming lifestyle and just how your favorite hobby could be affecting your health, amongst other things.

From the article:
"...the incessant health warnings in relation to the medium are unlikely to curb your habit any time soon. Nevertheless, the wisest decisions are informed decisions and so here is a break down of the various pros and cons of being a great big gaming nerd that have been previously discussed by health practitioners and the media alike."

How is this a debate? The truth is that ANYONE with a sedentary lifestyle will incur health problems. It has nothing to do with video gaming itself. The pros listed are also not exclusive to gaming. If ANYONE does ANYTHING similar to the pros mentioned, they have the possibility of the same outcome.

Christopher55d ago

They're not looking to acquire, but are they looking to be acquired? That's the big question now with companies like EA, T2, etc.

badboyz0954d ago

EA relies way to much on their licensed ip's which isn't a good thing for a Buyer.

-Foxtrot55d ago

I really want them to finish up Cal's story so LucasFilm are free to use him in a TV show or Film if he survives in the end anyway

Cal or Ezra should be rebuilding the Jedi Temple Order...not Rey.

CrimsonWing6955d ago

Please do. These Jedi games have been exceptionally top tier.

StarkR3ality54d ago

Other than their performance but yeah

CrimsonWing6954d ago

I didn’t really run into performance issues, but I played it on PS5.

neomahi54d ago

We don't want it, let someone else develop Star Wars

Tacoboto54d ago

1. Yes we do want it
2. One of the biggest recent announcements has been Star Wars Outlaws, developed by someone else.

I've always wanted a Black Panther game...

...I can't say I've always wanted EA to make said Black Panther game.

Reserving judgment, but my feeling is that this game, at best, gets a maximum aggregate score of 70 on metacritic. Not really convinced EA has the vision to pull this off.

jznrpg78d ago

Who knows. They have done a couple really good Star Wars game lately.

I have not seen anything at all so I can’t come up with a potential aggregate score.

-Foxtrot78d ago

I don't understand because we have that Captain America game with Black Panther in it set during WW2 coming

I'm pretty sure we'll be able to control him in that aswell

I'd have preferred them tackle another hero like the Punisher, Daredevil, Blade etc

SimpleSlave77d ago

All you need to understand is that Black Panther is an extremely popular character that should've gotten a game a long time ago. And playing second fiddle in a Captain America game ain't it bud.

-Foxtrot77d ago


I doubt he's playing "second fiddle" in that game man, you don't put Black Panther in and don't let us play him.


You mean back in 2005? Like 18 years ago....

peppeaccardo77d ago

Enough with EA for me after that sore tooth launch of Battlefield 2042. They got my €100 for the Gold version and these are the last money they see from me. They could come up with a GOTY but I will never give them my money! I'll find something else to play ...

Christopher78d ago

I guess the question now is which Black Panther?

***giving them more agency and control over their narrative than they have ever experienced in a story-driven video game.***

Okay, let's not try too hard here. That's a pretty high bar for a new studio and either tells me story will be watered down or you're marketing to me heavily too early.

blackblades78d ago

Question is what's up with the other black pather game then with Captain America? Also another question is are Marvel gonna flood the gaming market with Marvel games like how they did with movies and TV series.

Christopher78d ago

I mean, yeah on the flood the market thing. They have plenty of mobile games and I'm guessing they want more out there. I'm certain the Avengers game was a disappointment for them for GaaS, but they will keep trying. They like that ongoing money stream in all their games.

Knightofelemia78d ago (Edited 78d ago )

A Black Panther with Chadwick Boseman as the voice would have been great I think. Too bad he has passed on.

badz14977d ago

you do know AI exists now that can make "Chadwick Boseman" says anything you want, right?

not gonna say they should do it, but it's possible

Knightofelemia77d ago


Yes I know they can do that but then it lacks the realism that is Chadwick Boseman and what he brings to the table. Plus you would need his family to ok that.

Sonic188178d ago

Blade would have been more interesting

Christopher78d ago

Eh, boring enemies. Lots of vampires. I prefer something like Black Panther, Captain America, or the like who are melee focused and have a wide list of potential enemies with different abilities and combat tactics.

JimmyDM9077d ago

His enemies don't have to just be vampires. Most supernatural threats would make sense for him. You could do a Witcher type situation. Some vampire villain (maybe Dracula) has unleashed a bunch of occult monsters (Vampires, Werewolves, demons, etc) on New York, for variety could be some other city like New Orleans, and Blade has to track down and kill them before they destroy the city/accomplish their end goal. Round out the cast with Elsa Bloodstone and some other occult heroes.
