ARA: A clear connection between violence; no inclination for it and games

The American Psychological Association [American Psychological Association - APA] made a statement in its report that we currently have insufficient data to prove that there is any connection between violence and violent video games.

“Violence is too complex and multifaceted problem, which is due to many factors and requires careful study. It certainly requires attention from politics, society and researchers. However, attributing the development of violent addiction to video games is not scientifically sound. Also, such a statement distracts from more important factors, such as the history of violence, which is the main harbinger of its recurrence, ”says ARA in its revised resolution.


In fact, the organization came to similar conclusions back in 2015, but then the public, politicians and the media referred to the resolution due to misunderstandings and used it to prove that games develop a propensity for violence.

At the same time, the association says that there is a connection between violent games and temporary aggressive behavior, which manifests itself in screaming during the process and pushing objects. However, the research findings are difficult to attribute to the fact that games actually induce violent behavior.

In addition to research, the ARA is pushing for better age ratings.

The new Batman game will be a reboot of the franchise, not a new part of the Arkham series

Warner Bros. Studios Games Montreal has hinted more than once that it is working on a new game about Batman. Fans found new information about the project on LinkedIn in the studio's senior producer profile.

It says he is working on a Batman game under new intellectual property. Fans of the series are confident that this very mention confirms the theory that this will be a reboot of the series, and not a new part of Arkham.

According to rumors, the game will tell about the secret society of the Court of Owls and will allow you to play for several members of the Batman family, as well as offer us a cooperative. It will be released this fall. They also believe that in the future we will have a service game from Rocksteady about Bats and an action game about Superman. However, Warner Bros. just thinking about it.

In Call of Duty Modern Warfare, you can get yourself a Tamagotchi that you can feed with death

Even before the release of the game, the developers talked about the plans to introduce their own version of tamagotchi - tamoguntchi from the word gun - weapon. They did it.

When you put a watch with an electronic pet on a character's hand, it is initially in an egg, but soon it will hatch, and you will need to try on parenting responsibilities.


Your virtual pet has several stages of maturation in the game: infant, child, teenager and adult. Your main task is to make sure that he is not sad, but he can be sad if he is dirty, hungry or sleepy. Everything is like in a real game, but with reservations.

So, you can feed your pet by killing enemies, as well as performing other tasks. All Tamagotchi have a bonus rank, which is necessary for faster development. Its replenishment depends on the type of Tamagotchi, some will require you to plant bombs, others to complete the match in the leading places. Tamagotchi can range from dog to dragon.

You can check the status of your pet during a match. But there is one "but" that turns this interesting venture into a farce - this is a donated item that is sold for 1000 COD points.
