The Geek Getaway Gaming News Round Up for 11/18/2019 to 11/24/2019

Pablo Romero is making art!
I recently became aware of Pablo thanks to one of the people I follow on Twitter retweeted some of his art. Along with comic book and 80's styled artwork, Pablo also does art based on various video games. I talked to Pablo and he was cool with The Geek Getaway featuring some of his art on our site, so today's Gaming News Round Up is going to feature various works from Pablo. He does commissions, so you should hit him up if you like the art you see here. You can follow him on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and/or Patreon. Some of Pablo's art is NSFW, so you should be careful when checking out his work.

Blizzard still loves China
It has been recently revealed that Blizzard is once again trying to win over the Chinese government. This time Blizzard is doing it to get the Call of Duty Mobile game into the phones of Chinese citizens. Even with the new restrictions on children playing games in China, Blizzard feels their money is more important than their current fans outside of the Communist hell hole. Vara Dark from Dark Titan Enterprises did a great video on the subject and I will include it below.
