The number of games on Steam has increase massively in the past two years. “Steam grew by 561 games in 2013, but added 1,814 in 2014. Seven months into 2015, there’s already 1,592 new games on Steam. But is that truly a problem?” (www.pcgamer.com) asks Pcgamer. Alas, it is. “They fear that Steam will become like the App Store, known more for what it rejects than what it showcases. And they have a point: who wants lazy mobile game ports, halfheartedly erotic pinball, soccer-fighting games, something called SpaceCorn, or Gynophobia, ‘“a horror shooter about abnormal fear of women,”’ on Steam? How can deserving, independent gems to stand out in an ecosystem filled with junk?” (www.pcgamer.com) Pcgamer later stated. Sadly, with Steam being saturated, developers will be hurt by the substantial incline in games in Steam.

·      Highlight

After the shooting that took place in a historical black church on June 17, larger arguments took place about gun control (naturally). One side says stricter laws while the other is the opposite. "The one thing that would have at least ameliorated the horrible situation in Charleston would have been that if somebody in that prayer meeting had a conceal carry or there had been either an off-duty policeman or an on-duty policeman, somebody with the legal authority to carry a firearm and could have stopped the shooter," presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said while being interviewed by Fox News. Not surprisingly, a study puts that statement to shame. By having less gun control laws; murders, robberies, etc. would increase. As a matter of fact, with the ownership of more guns, people were more likely commit armed felonies.

·       Politics

Donald Trump gave some comments about illegal immigrants from Mexico during his mid-June speech. The aftermath of this resulted in him getting pounded with criticisms. After licking his wounds, he released a long statement defending himself. For those of you not familiar of how Mr. Comb-Over Trump defends himself than this should explain it: “In classic Trump style, though, his defense is an attempt to reframe the vagueness of what he was talking about into something more easily defensible. And in classic Trump style, he can't quite get through it without 1) a lot of words and 2) several more exaggerations.” (Phillip Bump www.washingtonpost.com)

·       Politics

After the death of three death row inmates, the Supreme Court ruled to limit the use of an execution drug which they said that caused extreme pain. Two members of the court, Justices Stephen G. and Ruth Bader Ginsberg, were very close to declaring that they were ready to rule a decision as unconstitutional. However, during this process, Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, engaged them into a heated debate about the effectiveness of the capital punishment. In the end, a 5-to-4 decision ended the debate.

The confederate flag of the United States has always been the symbol or the south. Although others think that the flag resembles one of the worst evils that was a part of the history of the United States, many still waved it until now. Many companies like eBay, Amazon, Walmart, Sears, etc. have agreed not to sell any merchandise involving the confederate flag. Valley Forge Flag, the first flag company in the United States, has also agreed to stop producing the confederate flags. Although this decision was final, many southerners do not like these changes and are protesting to get the flag back onto the market.

President Obama was deeply sorrowful he heard the news of the Charleston shooting. In his words it was called “senseless murders”. In return, he responded by criticizing the lack of gun laws. The president claims that less deaths will happen if it is harder to get your hands on a gun.

"Now is the time for mourning and for healing, but let's be clear: At some point, we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries.  It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency." The president said on his speech.

Hey,

The reason why everything was hitting the fan is because my music software was not working.

However, I did manage to find a trial to MAGIX music maker 2015. I know, I've been to their steam page. The reviews say it sucks more than any cheap hoe you can find on the street. 

I just need your help. If you could please give me tips of how to to counter-act the crashes and freezes or links to websites that have those than that would be fantastic. Or of course, recommend other programs or previeous versions.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Another topic,

I've distant from the Newgrounds. I would like to be on this site more often and hear feedback from other people.

And so, every week I will post a weekly news flash. This will about whats going on in the world. I will pick out some topics that I find interesting and/or important. I'd figured it would be nice to share some information that I found interesting. Of course, every entry will be dated. The first entry will start later today since it's two o'clock in the morning.
