“Stray” Proves to Be A Great Game and Also Proves So By Helping Raise Funds for Animal Shelters

Published

on

With its addictive gameplay and moving narrative, Stray’s success has brought attention to the situation of real-life cats in need of rescue, and now a sizable sum has been raised for animal shelters in the United States alone.

Going Beyond

Publisher Annapurna Interactive collaborated with the Nebraska Humane Society in July, giving away four copies of Stray in a raffle with a $5 donation for each ticket. 550 individuals contributed almost $7,000, some of whom traveled as far as Germany and Malta. Annapurna Interactive also gave $1,035 to the Nebraska Humane Society.

More Than a Game

Players of Stray on Twitch have also encouraged their viewers to donate to animal shelters, with North Shore Animal League America earning $800 from game enthusiasts.

As more people are motivated by the characteristics of these tiny creatures and how some have led difficult lives on the streets, it is highly possible that these totals have already been exceeded. This is only one illustration of how gaming may actually benefit society.

Cardi B Opens Up About Failed Collaboration with Call of Duty

Published

on

It may sound a little strange, but Cardi B should be creating some buzz for Call of Duty. Back in July, the rapper partnered with Activision. She goes on to tell us more about how the partnership eventually fell apart after that.

The Reason

You might recall that Cardi B debuted her partnership with Activision by donning a Simon “Ghost” Riley necklace in the music video for “Hot S**t.” Since then, you probably haven’t seen Cardi B advertising Call of Duty because she allegedly lost her cooperation deal as a result of prior “stupid decisions.”

A Hot Topic

Cardi B admitted guilt to assault-related charges earlier this month, according to Comic Book. They related to an altercation that occurred in a New York strip club in 2018. Cardi B took a plea agreement that included 15 days of community service, paying court costs for the other women involved, and avoiding prison time.

Hacker from “Grand Theft Auto 6” Appearing in Court Pleads “Not Guilty”

Published

By

The youngster who broke into Rockstar Games and leaked the Grand Theft Auto VI early gameplay video has been in court and has opted to enter a “not guilty” plea to the accusations.

Not Guilty? Really?

According to the Bloomberg article, the 17-year-old from Oxfordshire, England, was already in violation of his release terms and had gotten himself into trouble with two counts of internet abuse.

That was before the ransom hacks on Microsoft and Uber, which have reportedly been linked to the teen’s mischief, and before he allegedly targeted Rockstar Games’ systems and enabled the circulation of catastrophic amounts of previously undisclosed Grand Theft Auto VI data.

It’s crucial to remember that the authorities have not formally named this person as the perpetrator of all of these cyber sieges.

In addition, it’s believed that the hacker is a member of the collective Lapsus$. Over the period of 2021 and 2022, the cybercrime gang seriously harmed a number of organizations, including Nvidia, Samsung, Ubisoft, and others.

According to Brett Callow, a threat analyst at the antivirus firm Emsisoft, “Lapsus$ definitely aren’t wreaking as much havoc as other actors with various incentives could, and I think that’s the answer – they aren’t fully motivated by money,” said in an interview with Wired.

Therefore, they attempt things that cybercriminals with only financial motivations wouldn’t. The trial will proceed at a later date after the judge sent the matter to a higher court. “They are more inclined to be adventurous and to try things – that may not have a payoff – just for the joy of it,” which checks the box for the motivation for an attack on Grand Theft Auto VI.

PlayStation to Begin Outrageous Plan

Published

on

PlayStation first unveiled PlayStation Stars, a brand-new loyalty program, in July. Players can essentially gain exclusive digital collectibles, PSN wallet dollars, and particular PlayStation Store products using PlayStation Stars.

A Starting Point

Although there will be many difficulties, some of them are as easy as opening a single game. The program is completely free. Finally, we have an estimated launch date for the plan.

The When

The service officially debuts on September 29, if you live in Asia, including Japan. Then, on October 5 and October 13, respectively, North and South America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand will have access.

The issue is that while the limited-edition digital collectibles are making a lot of noise, they aren’t actually NFTs.  “Beautifully rendered, digital representations of things that PlayStation fans enjoy, including figurines of beloved and iconic characters from games and other forms of entertainment, as well as cherished devices that tap into Sony’s history of innovation.” is how PlayStation describes the collectibles.

Additionally, it has been confirmed that PlayStation Plus subscribers would receive an additional benefit. All PlayStation Store purchases, including membership payments, will earn additional points for all PlayStation Plus subscribers.
