Moments ago, the Sydney Manga and Anime Show!, or, SMASH! anime convention just opened its doors for the first day of the show this year. There’s probably a bit of a queue to get in still, but, much like any other year, it’s probably a blast once you’re inside. Check out our previous years coverage on what to expect.
Over the early weekend, a few websites had published some rather interesting articles about this years EB Games Expo and Nintendo’s upcoming video game, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The rumours come sourced to a nameless anonymous source at the Expo claiming that fans that have purchased four Zelda games and have proof of purchasing these games at an EB Games store, that they will be able to play a demo build of Breath of the Wild. Obviously, this sounds like a terrible PR move and no sane person at Nintendo would have authorised this kind of move. But still, we have reached out to Nintendo for verification just the same. Below is their response, quoted. Thank … Continue reading
It looks like the SVG died when we converted it to .png. Pls SMASH! don’t use SVG, this isn’t 1992. It’s time to get PUMPED! The Sydney Manga and Anime Show!, or SMASH!, is set for another big year this year with the convention starting next weekend at the Rosehill Racecourse in Rosehill. Taking a look at all the materials that the organisers of SMASH! have been sending us these past few weeks, and taking a look on their website, it is clear that this years will be a rather interesting treat. Of course, SMASH! has always been our favourite convention here, so be sure to take a look at our past coverage of the convention as to what to … Continue reading
Saturday night was a rather different one for fans of Square Enix’s most recent entry in the MMORPG market, Final Fantasy XIV. That night, at a place called ‘The Nerd Cave‘, a rather packed out meetup took place between fans where we could engage and interact with each other while playing some FFXIV, and some of the many other games present at the location. It would prove to be a fun night with activities, pizza, booze and more. Officially, there is a Final Fantasy XIV group for Australians and New Zealanders to join on Facebook, which is where we found out about the event. Despite working with the PR company in-charge of looking after the Final Fantasy XIV brand, I … Continue reading
Very recently, the video game development studio, Digital Homicide, has engaged in a lawsuit against the big-man former-Destructoid journalist, Jim Sterling (real name: James Nicholas Stanton). The lawsuit is in regards to what the developers believe is Jim Sterling publishing false allegations towards them and inciting a mob to attack, harass and possibly endanger the developers and their family. Below is an excerpt from their page detailing why they are going ahead with their lawsuit. I have been falsely accused of: Stealing artwork Stealing assets Flipping projects with no work put in Doxing Had products misrepresented with intention to do damage Of illegally using another companies name Conducting illegal business activities Impersonating someone Being incompetent and unable to perform my job … Continue reading
… because calling it a translation at this point would be wrong. Earlier this week, we wrote about the fan backlash from the recently released Fire Emblem Fates video game that was just released in the US. Fans were concerned about the state of the game as it had, in comparison to the Japanese original, a tonne of “quality” translations, complete character personality rewrites, removal of gameplay content and more. In relation to this, we had requested that Nintendo give us some details on why these changes were made. Below is the statement given to us by our Nintendo representative. Making changes when bringing games to the West is a common part of the localisation process for many companies, including … Continue reading
Or at least that’s how we would like this headline to read. A couple of days ago, Tim Schafer was host to an AMA, or Ask Me Anything, over on Reddit. In this AMA, a user named AnotonioOfVenice had asked a question to Tim Schafer asking about if he regretted attacking women and minorities in a joke made at last years CDC. Do you regret the way you attacked and mocked women and minorities with your sockpuppet? The developer responds claiming that he did not attack women and minorities at all and was only making implications that the people using the #gamergate and #notyourshield hashtags were known to be sockpuppets. Or at least, that’s the interpretation that I came out … Continue reading
