ProximitySound joins Jaku and Xwater to bring you this week's gaming news. Stardew Valley got a splitscreen coop update. Indie devs are making their games worth more and more, which means their next games coming out will be snatched up instantly. 2k is giving players of the new NBA 2k game, that costs $60, unskippable ads that play during the game. If you're as appalled as we are, don't give them your money. Frost Giant Studios is a new company founded by former Blizzard devs who worked on Starcraft 2, Warcraft 3, and many other RTS games. Can they bring back the genre? Z Event had it's 5th yearly event last week. It's a gaming charity event similar to GDQ. They raised €3,510,682 and broke the former record for money raised for charity by a gaming event. Will GDQ be able to match that kind of a performance? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez streamed Among Us with Disguised Toast and other popular streamers, and had over 400,000 concurrent viewers. She's bridging the gap of politician and constituent. Will this be enough to get the younger crowd to vote? We have two hot takes this week. The first one is Twitch's new DMCA rules. They're not giving people a chance to fight it, and are assessing everyone with a warning. It's very unfair to give people a warning for something without allowing them to fight it. Maybe they actually did nothing wrong, but still have that on their permanent record with Twitch. Not Cool. You might think that took the cake for the week. Nope. Alex Hutchinson, one of the devs for the FAILED Google Stadia, tweeted that streamers should pay devs to stream their games. Some opinions are wrong, and this is one of them. Let us know what games you make, because we will make sure not to stream them. WE NOW HAVE A PATREON!
