Call of Duty Tournament Held to Raise Cancer Research Funds


A Call of Duty Tournament has raised an unspecified amount of money for a leading cancer research hospital.

Call of Duty Tournament New Feature

The gaming tournament which was held this weekend was played in honour of 9 year boy, Adrian Rodriguez, who was an avid Call of Duty fan.

Adrian had been playing games since he was a toddler and would always play Call of Duty with his friends online, even when he was going through the worst of his battle with cancer.

According to his older brother Alex, Adrian liked playing online when he was sick because nobody would be able to tell that he has cancer, therefore nobody would fee sorry for him and treat him any differently.

Adrian’s mother has commented that Adrian would have loved the idea of a Call of Duty tournament being held in his honour and raising money for a good cause.

All of the money raised is to be donated to Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters.  

 

Nintendo Opens Official E3 Site


Nintendo’s E3 site has gone live ahead of this year’s event in June.

Nintendo E3The website states that official Nintendo tournaments will be held, as well as official game announcement and more E3 plans. Confirmed games included in the tournament are Super Smash Brothers and Splatoon 2.

Unfortunately, that’s all there is for now, but I would expect to see a a lot more information coming to the site over the next couple of months.

There is some speculation that Nintendo might reveal new version of the Nintendo Switch, but this is purely rumour and until something is officially mentioned by Nintendo, I would take this with a huge pinch of salt.

E3 could potentially be massive for Nintendo this year if they plan to take advantage of the full opportunity before them. That’s because both Sony and Electronic Arts will not be present for the world’s biggest gaming event this year, although they are holding their own events.

E3 is scheduled for Tuesday June 11th to Thursday June 13th.  

 

PlayStation Refund Policy Now Allows Pre Order Refunds


PlayStation Network Users are now able to cancel Pre-Orders and be refunded for the game.

    I find the story about Adrian, the boy who played video games and found a world where he would be treated equally very touching. I hope that the tournament went well, do you know how much was raised and donated to the Children’s Hospital?

      Hi Melyssa, thanks for commenting.

      This is a great story and one that serves to highlight some of the good that media such as gaming can do, rather than focusing on the negative as usual.

      As of yet, the amount of money raised hasn’t been made available to the public.

      Have a great day,
      Michael.
