Oxford scientists have found no link between violent play and teenage aggression

University of Oxford scientists Andrew Przybylski and Netta Weinstein recently published a study on the impact of video games on teenage aggression. No link was found between real violence and virtual violence.


Andrew Przybylski said (and very eloquently) that their research is one of the most complete, and although there is a stereotype that video games contribute to the growth of aggression in adolescents, in fact it does not stand the test of time.

Previously, the conclusions on this topic have been slightly conflicting. Oxford officials say this was because the same data can be analyzed in different ways - specially selected results can "give unwarranted significance to the moral panic surrounding video games." There is also a place to be biased by scientists who have previously dealt with this topic.

To avoid bias in their work, the scientists arranged a pre-registration - before starting the experiment, all researchers had to indicate their hepotises, analysis techniques and methods.

However, experts say that games can cause nervous tension or irritability. According to Przybylski, verbal skirmishes, rivalries and trolling in gaming communities can be an interesting topic for the next talks.

The most delicious with Nintendo Direct

Nintendo hosted a Nintendo Direct broadcast last night, announcing a bunch of projects coming to Nintendo Switch. In half an hour, the company presented us with the following list of new games, as well as remakes and remasters.

Rumors have been confirmed and the big N will still release Super Mario Maker 2 with even more tools and functions for building levels.

A big announcement was a remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, which was released back in 1993 on GameBoy. The game will be released this year.


Remember when we discussed Apex legends recently? So forget everything that I said about this game as one of the best battle pianos, because now we have Tetris 99 - the royal battle of Tetris. It can be played by 99 people at once.

Authors of NieR: Automata and Bayonetta - Takahisa Taurai Hideki Kamiya are releasing exclusively on the switch Astral Chain game about a special police squad that fights together with a living weapon called the Legion against especially dangerous creatures.

Projects were also announced:

  • Rune Factory 5
  • Fire Emblem: Three Houses will be available on July 26th.
  • Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order Coming To Switch This Summer
  • Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice Coming To Console This Spring
  • Final Fantasy VII arrives on a hybrid device on March 26, and Final Fantasy IX is available now.
  • Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed: Liberation - May 21st Release

Why The Division 2 went to the Epic Games Store and other cool stuff from the latest Ubisoft report

Now in the industry there is a period when large gaming companies publish reports for their investors for everyone to see. The French are no exception.


We have selected the most interesting from their report:

  • The Division 2 has 40 hours of gameplay
  • Two projects of the company made it to the list of the best-selling games of the year at once - Assassin's Creed Odyssey (10th place) and Far Cry 5 (4th place).
  • Rainbow Six Siege has reached 45 million users.
  • Ubisoft plans to release 4 AAA games in the next fiscal year (April 2019 to March 2020). There are no details yet, and most likely we will find out about them at gaming exhibitions.
  • The company's net revenue for this fiscal year was 1.527 billion, which is more than last year, which means that the conveyor machine of the famous French franchises will not stop.
  • The transition of the second devision to Epic Games Store is due to the fact that the company wants to lure people to its store in this way, as well as support colleagues who offer more favorable conditions.

International version of Catherine: Full Body has a release date

On Valentine's Day in Japan, the sequel to the romantic puzzle Catherine, subtitled Full Body, has been released.


The English version of the game will go on sale exclusively for PS4 on September 3rd. In addition, the authors presented a collector's edition with the following content:

  • collection box,
  • steelbook,
  • plush sheep,
  • CD with soundtrack
  • hardcover artbook

Who doesn't know or forget - Full Body differs from the original game with updated graphics, pictures and new soundtracks. It will also feature a new character, Rin, with whom you can also romance.

The classic Catherine PC-boyars can purchase right now.

Far Cry: New Dawn - microtransactions and uncovered reskin

The first ratings and reviews of critics on the continuation of the fifth part of Far Cry have appeared. In many ways, the game turned out to be the same Far Cry 5, but with minor changes. At the end, the hero will have super abilities, the gameplay this time is more linear, and the main villains are less tiring. Also Game Informer notes that the game serves the dark side of the force and there is a donation in its pumping system.


However, if we talk about the game as a whole, it got a solid foundation from the last fifth part, so it's interesting to play it, but you can't call the game a novelty. It looks too much like the original fifth covered in pink and purple paint.

This was all the gaming news this week. Read our last digest, as well as watch new materials on how cool characters are created, and check out the list of games for lovers.
