The all-new trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2, the story of outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang as they rob, fight and steal their way across the vast and rugged heart of America in order to survive. Coming Spring 2018 to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One systems.



This will be a prequel about Dutch's Van der Linde Gang from the first Redemption game. This means we will get to see John Marston when he was younger and more rogue.



According to the updated website "Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience." LINK

Hunting, Horse breaking, and train robbing are activities featured.

The 2017 Call of Duty World League Championship is headed to the East Coast of America for the first time, as the top 32 teams in Call of Duty today will compete at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida on Aug. 9-13.
 
With the 2017 season offering the largest season prize pool in Call of Duty history of $4 million, it’s only fitting that the Amway Center, set to be one of the largest venues that will host a Call of Duty tournament to date, will be the place where $1.5 million of that prize pool will be on the line. Part of the City of Orlando’s largest redevelopment plans in the city’s history, the Amway Center has played host to All-Star Games and world class performing artists, and will now hold its first major esports tournament.

Do video games cause violenence?
By Masiv
Have you hearing about how violent video games somehow make people (young people) go out and kill for real? First, let me say that games, movies, and TV do not show violence. No one is really killed or even hurt for that matter. Safety is a priority for the industry. Everyone knows that. What you are watching is the artistic depiction of violence.

In Xavier Morales' review of Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill, Vol I, entitled "Beauty and violence", he calls the film "a groundbreaking aestheticization of violence." Morales says that the film, which he calls "easily one of the most violent movies ever made" is "a breathtaking landscape in which art and violence coalesce into one unforgettable aesthetic experience".

Film critics analyzing violent film images that seek to aesthetically please the viewer mainly fall into two categories. Critics who see depictions of violence in film as superficial and exploitative argue that it leads audience members to become desensitized to brutality, thus increasing their aggression. On the other hand, critics who view violence as a type of content, or as a theme, claim it is cathartic and provides "acceptable outlets for anti-social impulses.

Either way, when you engage someone in the debate about violent games and anti-social behavior, be sure to remind them that what we are seeing is not really violent, it's the artistic depiction of violence. Just like when they were watching cowboys and Indians as a kid. Did it make them want to seek out Indians (or anyone else) and kill them. NO. It's just entertainment.
