General Gaming / Nintendo Scrapping Creators Program

https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-11-29-nintendo-scraps-creators-program-making-life-much-easier-for-youtubers

I think someone finally sat down Nintendo of Japan and explained how you tube actually works to them and youtube content creators = free advertising, there's been a distinct lack of Nintendo coverage on Youtube due to the oppressive Creators Program that hit youtubers with barriers set forth by Nintendo themselves and took a very big chunk of Youtube money.  Its soo bad that most youtubers and streamers avoid covering anything Nintendo like a plague.

That will soon be a thing of the past Nintendo are loosening the leash and scrapping the Creators Program and put some basic rules up as long as you follow em your good to make whatever you please with Nintendo games and creators can also use Trailers and Gameplay footage made by nintendo themselves without fear of being hit with copyright take downs and demontizing of vids

General Gaming / Skyward Sword HD Switch Port possibly happening

https://www.destructoid.com/-update-zelda-producer-hints-that-skyward-sword-might-be-coming-to-switch-532671.phtml

Eiji Aonuma teased fans at a Legend of Zelda concert in Japan that a skyward sword port could be happening and they could be fixing alot of the criticisms of the original game and maybe even making motion controls optional!!! of course us Legend of Zelda fans went nuts at the possibility.

Unfortunately Nintendo PR stepped in a few days ago and released a statement to Eurogamer putting a dampener on things stating that there were no plans to release Skyward Sword on the Switch at this time 

But that's not to say it isn't in the works and the fact that fans went nuts they would be fools not to do it at this point!!!

I don't know if they will be banned like in Scandinavian countries as money talks in the land of the free.... but at least they are looking into it unlike my country..........

https://www.reddit.com/r/PS4/comments/9zaddy/sony_banned_me_for_a_common_nickname_in_my_culture/

The user name in question is Kike_0615 apparently kike is a Jewish insult kinda like the N word for afraican americans, in mexico his name is Enrique but in mexico kike is the nickname one is given and is very common over there its not like they would know this.

So he was gaming away and got hit with a Perm Ban rings up support finds out why he got banned and phone support basically says can't help ya mate, then makes several more calls and goes up the food chain only to get stone walled at the upper end, sony then starts to ignore his calls and they won't let him do Chat support so what's a brother to do? all his digital he purchased games locked to that account so if he starts up a new account he'll lose them all and have to buy them all again.

He takes to reddit to explain all this in the link above and ask what else can he do? the gaming media report on what has transpired many gamers upvote his story and Sony catches bad press and all of a sudden they come running and unban his account and let him change his username to something else

You might be thinking Yay happy ending right? but do we really need to post up on reddit and get the gaming media to report the story EVERY TIME Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft, Valve pull this crap!!!

How hard is it to put in a banned username list so they can't violate TOS in the first plcace and let legit users change their usernames to something else, I know Sony just joined the party in letting gamers change their usernames but still up your bloody game as this really isn't good enough sooner or later enough complaints to consumer rights to government departments is gonna come down on these cowboys like a ton of bricks

General Gaming / Warfcraft III: Reforged
« on: November 05, 2018, 02:28:45 AM »




At Blizzcon they also announced a remaster of Warcraft 3 updated visuals a few quality of life improvements here and there and some minor rewriting to bring warcraft 3 more inline with World of Warcraft which is funny as wouldn't WOW based on the events of Warcraft 3??  Anyway Jaina will feature a bit more as she's pretty important in WOW along with some minor races that became full blown races in WOW

It's priced at 29.99 and will re release next year sometime

General Gaming / Diablo Immortals
« on: November 03, 2018, 11:41:11 PM »


Blizzard finally announces at blizzcon that a new Diablo is in the works YAY? but this is not the diablo we know or love its get this a MOBILE GAME!!! yes that's right just when you thought you could wash the bitter taste and disappointment that is Diablo 3 out of your mouth Blizzard announced a freaking MOBILE GAME at BLIZZCON!!! and you can guess how well that went over with hardcore PC gamers no applause or excitement and at the Q and A afterwards someone asked if this was a off season April Fools Joke? LOL they said it was not.  Someone even asked if this was going to be ported to PC at some stage and the response was come on guys you have Mobile Phones!!! ahahahahaaaaaaaaaaa I can't even make this shit up at this point

The backlash has been strong and fierce with gamers downvoting all the videos and posting criticisms everywhere end mass Blizzard has been in damage control deleting and reuploading the videos many times I think sometime in the evening my time they gave up

Oh there's accusations that the mobile company developing the game is just a reskin of their previous game that is inspired by diablo  ;D

Even Bethesda wasn't this stupid to launch a sole mobile game without a Mainline traditional Fallout game, only EA was dumb enough to launch a Mobile only version of C&C and we all know how that went down

Jim Sterling sums up what we are all thinking.....

General Discussion / Downtime
« on: November 03, 2018, 11:29:01 PM »
The site has been down since yesterday our host has been helping me figure out why....

It turns out the hosting package we are on has a 140,000 file limit we hit that somehow, the host and I discovered one of my admin e-mail accounts had run that up past the limit with a 16mb file that would just not allow itself to be deleted it took some doing we finally deleted that sucker

Now back to perching on my soap box  ;D

« on: October 31, 2018, 03:04:09 AM »


I saw this on youtube a few days ago a reboot of Sabrina the teenage witch, they've taken out the comedy and put in a darker more serious tone with HORROR!! i've been watching it the past few days i'm really liking it they've put a new spin on it there's mysteries still to be explained but hey got me hooked!

I really like that netflix is releasing horror type stuff around Halloween even though I don't think very highly of Halloween it's not celebrated here in nz no matter what our media thinks

https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-10-24-surprise-the-monster-hunter-movie-doesnt-look-much-like-monster-hunter

This is in development and the guy that made those reasonably good resident evil movies is directing/producing it I liked how he made his own storyline for the movies that was a hell of a lot easier to follow than the games convoluted story

This could be good or bad guess we'll have to wait and see..

General Gaming / Hellgate: London back from the dead......
« on: October 25, 2018, 06:37:01 AM »
https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-10-24-hellgate-london-returns-to-steam

Oh wow I remember this game has it been 10 years already?? I recall my best friend bought it and ended up not liking it so he gave it to me I ended up playing it start to finish.  It was a cool idea a futuristic version of Diablo 3rd person style instead of the top down route (made by the original diablo team) but it was buggy and unfinished you could really tell in the later levels things were missing or not working as intended the developers decided last minute to add a subscription service world of warcraft style this did not go over well with the fanbase they back peddled and over 2 years tried various was to monetize the game but fell flat and alienated the playerbase.  HanbitSoft ended up buying them up and running it into the ground sadly.

The are rereleasing the game on steam with the tokyo expansion that was promised but never came in original release they are putting out the Single player campaign no word if there will be mutliplayer perhaps hanbitsoft have learned their lesson but I don't think so...

I do wonder if i'll be able to get a free copy on steam since I still have the original cd somewhere :D

General Discussion / Canada Legalizes Marijuana
« on: October 20, 2018, 04:10:04 AM »
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/oct/17/cannabis-becomes-legal-in-canada-marijuana

Congrats Logan you will have to toke it up for the rest of us that can't legally do that and 2nd country no less to do so, meanwhile New Zealand is stuck in the stone ages they won't legalize it for medical use except in exceptional circumstances even then its very difficult to get government permission but the synthetic drugs are legal but its crazy dangerous and killing at least 50+ people a year or leaving them with serious drug problems if people want to get high I say let em they're doing it anyway just not legally.  If it was legal they could at least regulate it and know what is actually in the drugs people are taking and make them safer to use?? just spit balling here

General Gaming / The Rise and Fall of Command & Conquer
« on: October 13, 2018, 02:44:37 AM »


After all this talk of remasters of the original C&C games I got really nostalgic and started watching cutscenes of the old games I stumbled across this Documentary its really good I highly recommend watching it sums up what happen to westwood studio's and EA's influence in the demise in one of the original RTS series that kickstarted the whole genre

also the actor that portrays Kane from the mainline Tiberium games was inducted into the Guinness book of world records for the longest recurring actor in any video game franchise to date for his portrayal of Kane.  His name is Joe Kucan really funny guy he jokes alot about he originally got the role

The Devil is back the wait for season 3 has been toooo long but i'm glad that's coming to a close now, Wilson Fisk is out and coming for Matt and everything he holds dear, there's someone else wearing the Daredevil costume and its not Matt my first thought was that's freaking BULLSEYE the only other person that can throw and shoot that accurately is Hawkeye that could be where he wandered off to instead of helping the Avengers he got hired by Wilson Fisk to troll Matt Murdok hehe  ;D
