So if you don’t know much about the UK, I’m gonna tell you two things that you need to know about this artist that is quickly getting a rise to fame quickly over there now. His name is Dave, yes, just Dave. Even though his name doesn’t sound mainstream his music very much is. Dave is a lyrical rapper looking to get his message out to the world by expressing it musically.He dropped his newest album Psychodrama and it honestly is full of music that lyrical listeners would love. He gives off such a serious but positive vibe towards his music and that’s what I like about him most honestly. It’s kind of overrating when I say this but I would say Dave is the J.Cole or Kendrick Lamar of the UK, but the reason I go that far is because not many artist in the UK take the lyrical approach, and I’m more than glad that Dave is taking it to a whole other level. Dave’s newest album psychodrama is out now and available on all platforms, if you’re into lyrical rap as much as I am, I suggest heavily that you give it a listen. Thanks for reading.

Nintendo and The Pokemon Company finally pulled back the curtain on Pokemon Sword and Shield, the series' eighth-generations titles for Switch, during February's anticipated Pokemon Direct presentation. On top of revealing details about the games' setting, we got our first look at the brand-new trio of starter Pokemon players will be able to choose from in the upcoming titles.
Just as in previous Pokemon games, players will be presented with a choice of three different Pokemon when they first begin their adventure in Sword and Shield. This time around, the options will be the Grass-type chimp Grookey, the Fire-type rabbit Scorbunny, and the Water-type lizard Sobble
No other new Pokemon have been revealed yet, but we did get a glimpse at a ton of returning Pokemon, including a handful from Sun and Moon--you can see all the Sword and Shield Pokemon in our gallery. Sword and Shield are set in the new Galar region, which appears to be based on Britain and spans idyllic countryside, rustic towns, and snowy mountains.
Pokemon Sword and Shield are being directed by Shigeru Ohmori, who also served as director of Sun and Moon. Based on the footage revealed thus far, Sword and Shield appear to be much more traditional takes on the series than the recent Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee; random encounters seem to be back, and players will once again be able to battle wild Pokemon before capturing them. It's also been confirmed that Gyms are returning after they were dropped from Sun and Moon. We also spotted some mysterious symbols, though it's unclear what significance they have, if any.

Hey everyone, Bradley I have some news and a big rant for you guys. Censorship. Nowadays we can’t do anything without having to censor something. Schools, workplace, that’s one thing. But things like our topic today, Steam, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and all social media or things that we access on our free time should NOT be near as censored as they are today. My News for today is this; There is a new game that was submitted recently to Steam, the big PC gaming site that most people go to for their content. The game is controversially called Rape Day where you play as a sociopath that can violate women during the Zombie apocalypse. This game was constructed as to not violate what little rules Steam actually has, and with Steam’s Hands-Off approach allowing developers the creative freedom that they crave, and use to make and distribute any game they wish. This game was made to test that very policy and approach. However, it was denied for no specific reason besides protecting Valve’s image. With the growing trend of companies shutting up anyone they don’t agree with or don’t approve of like Youtube with their oh so famous, oh so memorable, demonetization. They take away anyone’s ability to speak their mind if Youtube doesn’t like what that creator is saying. For this bring my point of Rusty Cage, This creator is famous for the creation of The Knife Game and their songs respectfully. He made a song about a year ago titled The Noose Song as the songs name suggest it was a comical take on depression and suicide. It was taken down shortly after upload, but as the internet has its ways nothing truly fades. It was posted again by subscribers and it still remains today. This shows that companies like Youtube can suppress people if they want to. Why would they do that? They want to censor people from that which they deem “offending” and with everything going on today and people overreacting to the minor things, why do we keep censoring? What is the point of having the freedom to speak your mind if everyone has either suppressed or been suppressed for some unpopular opinion? We need to stop with this unnecessary censorship. We have driven ourselves into a hole that if we don't act soon we will all have to keep the same opinions and those who don't could face worse than demonetization. With even Valve’s Steam platform bending the knee to cater to those who can't handle others expression, how far do we have now before we can’t express ourselves?
