Another week means another episode of Good News Gaming, the show that aspires to raise your spirits and warm your hearts by showing you all the cool, fun, and weird things that are happening in the wonderful world of video games.
This week’s episode reunites old friends, celebrates a couple of big companies giving charity, and highlights the ingenuity of a small aquarium in bringing people together in a time of social isolation.
If that wasn’t enough, our very own Dan Auer used his amazing design skills to set up a Pokemon battle in a very cool way. Dan was confident in his skills and in his team, but little did he know that his nine-year-old neighbor was actually a formidable Pokemon trainer too. Watch the video to see how it all unfolded.
Beyond that, the passionate Final Fantasy XIV community came together to remember and celebrate Ferne Le’roy, who recently passed away. The act of remembrance involved players from around the world undertaking a memorial march.
Naturally, we have another Animal Crossing: New Horizon showcase, and this time it’s Pokemon-themed. If you thought the recreation of Mother in the game was impressive, wait until you see how one player has managed to bring Pokemon to life–it’s spectacular. And finally, there are ridiculous facial animations, because if all else fails, twisting mouths and skewered eyes are sure to bring a smile to your very normal faces.
Oh and stay tuned for a special cameo from Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller, who is also doing his part for charity and inviting the fine GameSpot community to help.
