Let's Talk About Dr DisRespect's NFT Game

As some of you might know, popular livestreamer Dr DisRespect announced the creation of a game similar to Tarkov’s extraction system, but with the monetary aspects of block chain NFTs. Given the sketchy nature of the current NFT market and the highly controversial past of Dr DisRespect, I personally don’t think this endeavor will end in a good spot. Multiple other large name streamers like Asmongold and Moist Critical have called out some of the glaring issues with this project, mainly involving the existence of bots/cheating programs to receive real-money items within the game. Let us know what you think of NFT’s in the gaming sphere, or what any fans of Dr DisRespect think about this project.

 

Suicide Squad Game Delayed After Backlash

After widespread disapproval and disinterest at the new Suicide Squad game from Warner Bros and Rocksteady, the publishers decided to delay the release of the game further back into 2023. The officially stated reason for the delay was to add more polish, but it seems that what the game was really lacking was clear design direction. When the same studio created the Arkham game series, it was very easy to see what made those games so unique. But looking at Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, it looks like a dime-a-dozen generic looter shooter. If Warner Bros wants this game to succeed, a full design overhaul is going to be needed, and that rarely happens within a few months of a delay. Check out more about this story at PCGamer here.
