That's right folks billy mitchell is a dirty cheat after a lengthy investigation into his Million point run on Donkey Kong it was discovered he used a emulator to do this feat as a result Twin Galaxies removed his high score an all others done by mitchell and notified the Guinness World Records of their decision. Mitchell will no doubt rebuke any wrong doing but Twin Galaxies has now recognized Steve Wiebe as the first player to achieve a million-point game in Donkey Kong.

While that record has since been smashed by Robbie Lakeman with 1.247 points just this February

Twin Galaxies hopes to keep record attempts honest for their historical records

https://www.destructoid.com/the-shenmue-1-2-collection-is-real-and-coming-this-year-498594.phtml



Hot off the press! Sega just announced Shenmue 1 and 2 are coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and and for the very first time PC!!  Sega have stated these will be the definitive editions with both English and Japanese voice acting, modern and classic control scheme's, scalable resolution, pc gfx options and more!

It was only a matter of time for this to happen since Shenmue 3 was successfully crowd funded a few years back so its only natural Sega would watch in on some of the action and maybe bring in a new generation of Shenmue fans

also the steam store page is live right now! add it to your wish lists people and lets blow up steam :D

https://www.destructoid.com/wb-is-now-the-new-publisher-for-hitman-following-the-split-from-square-enix-497265.phtml

Wow! of all the publishers they could've teamed up with these guys seriously?? at least they can't stuff up the current Hitman as its already out in the wild they're doing a Physical/Definitive edition release finally coming out next month.  Its a pretty cool game if you like sandbox type games sooo many different ways you do the mission's and mix things up lots of challenges and player made ones to keep one occupied

General Gaming / Shadow Of war removing Microtransactions & loot boxes

https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-04-03-middle-earth-shadow-of-war-ripping-out-microtransactions-and-loot-boxes

As many have rightly pointed out they aren't doing this for good will most likely they've made as much money as they can and have decided to save themselves even more money by switching that stuff off and shutting down the servers.  I also think they are doing this to head off Goverments looking into lootboxes=gambling.  This is Warner Bros trying to break into the top five worst game publishers :P still got a long way to go

https://www.destructoid.com/new-live-action-street-fighter-tv-series-will-be-based-on-world-warrior-tournament-495973.phtml

Made by the same guys that made the very excellent Street Fighter Assassins Fist webseries!!!



Unfortunately Machinima have decided to be jerks and taken down the webseries due to a falling out with the creators but if you look hard enough you'll find it, its very well put together and the creators have been trying for years to make a follow up to it, World Warriors but have come up short until now!!

Unless they take out the F2p microtransactions and the horrible art direction consider me out, I tried out the mobile phone version and I DO NOT LIKE! they might as well do a HD port of Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo and leave it exactly as it is from 1996 then cash may change hands till then NO THANK YOU Crapcom

General Gaming / Ubisoft successfully fights off Vivendi

https://www.destructoid.com/vivendi-is-selling-all-of-its-shares-in-ubisoft-495153.phtml

I'm actually saddened by this news I was actually rooting for Vivendi because really what's the difference? ubifail has some cool ideas but very poor execution in recent memory For Honor had no dedicated servers and only 1 year on have they finally implemented them LOL should have been there from day 1.  Anyway on to brass taxes Vivendi has agreed to sell all the shares they have bought up and will not go after any shares for 5 years alot of them will be bought up by Ubisoft, The CEO's, Ontario Teachers' Public Equities division and a chinese tech firm Tencent who they've partnered up with to bring ubifail games to china.

Vivendi is selling shares at $66 euros a share there's 30,489,300 so somebody's getting a big pay day

General Gaming / Shadow of The Tomb Raider
« on: March 19, 2018, 06:09:46 AM »


Probably the worst kept secret a few days ago the beans were spilled what we know so far is Release Date is September 14, it's coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC no timed exclusive nonsense this time around, Eidos Montreal is the developer this time around not Crystal Dynamics as they are working on a avengers game.  This is also the finale of Lara's Origin story so next game we'll see her as a total badass we know and love

More details to follow on April 27th

If you own the originals on steam you'll get em free, there's a new engine and it supports OpenVR if your into that sort of thing, from the looks of the discussion on Twitter they found the long lost source code for Tomb Raider 3 which held them back to a degree they even announced there will be mobile phone port of 3 what a crazy world we live on where we can play old 90's games on our phones

This was pretty cool though it does make me stop and think as i've been buying up Wii U games lately should I stop? I don't think I have Captain Toad it's one of the last few Wii U titles I wanted to get but if its coming to the switch I could play on the go which is mighty appealing to me
