The Magic of Animal Crossing.

We’re taking a small break from news posts as we figure out exactly how we want to deliver it to you, but I saw this video and had to share it with you all. YouTube user DimeTree explained exactly what I love about Animal Crossing, and just. Just watch it. It isn’t any secret that I’m a huge Animal Crossing fan, and he really just nails the exact “magic” of Animal Crossing, and why its so hard to explain to anyone not willing to give it a chance.

Atlus USA shows off Persona 5’s “Take Your Heart” edition, and we can’t stop drooling.

We absolutely cannot wait for Persona 5. The entire team loves the series and the wait for the newest title has been painful to say the least. That said, with less than two weeks to go Atlus has uploaded a new video with their PR head William and marketing team member Lauren showing off just what lies inside the collector’s edition of the game.

April 4th can’t get here fast enough.

I’m a bit of a Sonic fan with the games shaping my childhood.

Check out the footage below, and let us know what you expect from Sonic Forces! 18

Twitch to sell games, giving percentage of profits to streamers!

Twitch has been a great way for people to watch others play a game, and helping to decide if you should purchase it. Apparently Twitch and game publishers agreed! Starting “soon”, Twitch will allow opt-in for partnered streamers to sell copies of the game that they’re streaming.

 

You can find the entire Q&A below the cut, but the part I’m most curious about is this:

Q. If I’m a non partnered streamer, can viewers buy games from my channel page?

A. An offer to buy a game or in game content will appear on all streamer channel pages when a game is being played that is offered for sale by Twitch. Only partnered streamers will be eligible to earn revenue through this program.

So basically, if you’re not partnered with Twitch, prepare to make them money regardless!

Going back to the Roots with The Magic of the First “Legend of Zelda”

Game Maker’s Toolkit has brought an amazing video about series going back to what made them popular today on YouTube, and we had to share it.

In the description, it’s quoted:
The next Zelda game, Breath of the Wild, is said to be inspired by the very first game in the series. Let’s revisit that seminal game, to see how Nintendo made such an intoxicating adventure.

So what exactly makes Zelda 1 so amazing? And what is Nintendo doing to recapture that magic?

Ubisoft not COMPLETELY crazy with those Assassin’s Creed 2 remaster NPCs?

Reddit user SupJamChan recently uploaded a video explaining his thoughts on why maybe we should hold off on blindly listening to the internet to fuel our hatred. As many have seen, the Ezio Collection remastered package has a few…glitches.

The video goes on to show that while Ubisoft didn’t…exactly do anything wrong with this NPC’s face, they did ignore other multitude of glitches that plagued the original. So they’re not exactly off the hook yet.

Rashid and Karin Blast into Street Fighter V!

A new character and a returning classic, Street Fighter V continues to build its roster!

Rashid
Joining the series from the Middle East, Rashid is an easy going and laid back character that has a very keen interest in technology and the latest gadgets on the market. His fighting style takes cues from parkour and he mixes it up with his unique ability to harness the power of wind. Always first in line to buy new tech, he uses these devices to research and create his fast-paced acrobatic moves, leaving his opponents in the dust and wondering what’s coming next.

Karin
Behind Karin’s golden locks and razer-sharp wit lies a true martial artist trained in the unique “Kanzuki style” of fighting. Utilizing her new dash move allows her to close distances quickly with her opponents and go in for quick high-low attacks or throws. Her well-rounded skills allow her to possess a full set of tools and deploy a wide array of strikes and maneuvers that will have opponents feeling the pressure. For fans who’ve longed for her return, or for those just looking for a quick fighter with lots of versatility, Karin is a welcome addition to Street Fighter V!
