Here we are, another weekend is at hand. Time is flying by and after this month, there are only two months left in the entire year of 2020. I want to thank all of you who have taken the time to visit this website, read through the content, and access the links since the soft launch in July. Today’s post will focus on drawing your attention to some updates that have been made to the website over the past couple of weeks and how it can enhance your experience as you navigate through the site.
When I launched The Video Gamer’s Advocate, I did the best I could to implement access to as many resources as possible. There is still a mountain of good stuff that is yet to be discovered, but I am always on the hunt for more things that not only will take my gaming experiences to the next level, but also enhance yours as well. One of my goals is for this to be a place that you can continually use as a launching point and a reference for many gaming-related endeavors.
The first update I will focus on is the extended number of companies listed under the “NEWS” menu section where now you can access the latest official updates from the organizations themselves. Some of the additions include Bandai Namco (Dark Souls, Project Cars, Soul Calibur), CD Projekt Red (The Witcher series, Cyberpunk 2077), SEGA (Persona 5, Yakuza series), and Ubisoft (Assassin’s Creed, Rainbow Six Siege, Watch Dogs). Although you already had the option to check out some of the major video game media outlets within the links such as IGN.com and PC Gamer, I wanted to make sure that I also provided access to the official news pages of video game publishers where you can get information straight from the source. More entries may be added in the future but the additions should just about cover all of the major video game publishers.
I’m always thinking about how to expand the “CHEATS” section and came up with the idea to include a “GAME SAVES” option. Let’s be honest that some of us don’t want to spend hours upon hours within a game just to unlock characters or other game options. For instance, although I enjoy the LEGO Marvel, LEGO DC, and LEGO Star Wars games, I’m not going to play through each one of them trying to discover every secret to unlock all the characters. Now if you do wish to do that, then more power to you. But because of my personal gaming preferences of playing a variety of different titles, game saves that I can download are huge time savers for me. Some games I will put in the grind (such as Fire Emblem Three Houses), others I won’t. Just be aware that The Video Gamer’s Advocate does not endorse using game saves to unlock paid content or saves that can be used to cheat within multiplayer games.
Next, I’ve added gamepressure.com as a site where you can discover free games. Yet the website is a treasure of resources that also includes mods, trainers, patches, and more. I’ve used and benefited from this website quite a bit but only just found that links to free games are there as well. This also reminds me that when it comes to many of the links, do not be surprised if they can serve multiple purposes for you the same way that gamepressure.com has for me. I enjoy discovering websites like this and being able to bring them to you so you don’t have to spend your precious time searching for them. Instead, you can access what you need and spend more time gaming.
The right sidebar section now includes a “DOWNLOAD THIS NOW FOR FREE” section that will feature a free game that you can retrieve each week. It will be updated each Wednesday/Thursday with a different item that you can get by clicking on the picture that will take you to the download page. The year 2020 has been the most benevolent in video gaming history and there has never been a time when there are so many free games available.
One last update to note is that when I have a long list of links within a particular section, I have now separated them according to letter. For instance, within “FREE GAMES,” you will now see the sites separated as “SITES (A-J)” and “SITES (K-Z)” instead of just a long list of website links. This will hopefully make navigating the link section a little easier without the possibility of the list of links extending off the page and having to scroll to access them. This should especially help those of you who access this site from a desktop computer or a laptop.
If there are any suggestions that you have, please send them to me at email@example.com. I want to be able to offer the very best to all of you so I am open to checking out what you believe could be useful to other gamers. Have a great weekend.
