Renegade Kid has announced that its co-founders, Jools Watsham and Gregg Hargrove, have made the difficult decision to bring their 10-year partnership of developing games together as Renegade Kid LLC to an end.
With their friendship and respect for each other still very much intact, Watsham and Hargrove will continue developing videogames under the names of their new companies: Atooi and Infitizmo.
The award-winning library of Intellectual Properties that Renegade Kid has created over the past decade will be finding new homes. All of Renegade Kid’s “2D” games, including the Mutant Mudds series and Treasurenauts, will become the property of Atooi. All of Renegade Kid’s “3D” games, including the Dementium series and Moon Chronicles, will become the property of Infitizmo.
We hope you will share in the excitement that both Jools and Gregg feel for their new journeys. You can follow their progress on twitter: @AtooiLLC and @InfitizmoLLC.

While it is sad to hear of the studio’s demise, it is good to know that the IPs will continue and both studios will still be making games.

The ESRB Rating for Resident Evil 7 has revealed some rather interesting details

 

Content Descriptors: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language

Rating Summary: This is a survival-horror game in which players assume the role of Ethan, a man searching for his missing wife in a derelict mansion. From a first-person perspective, players explore the environment and use pistols, shotguns, flamethrowers, explosives and chainsaws to kill mutant creatures. Combat is accompanied by realistic gunfire, screams of pain, and exaggerated blood-splatter effects. As players progress through the story, cutscenes can depict instances of gore and intense acts of violence: a character’s arm dismembered by a chainsaw; a man’s leg taken off at the knee with a shovel; a character impaled through the face with a shovel. Some areas also depict mutilated corpses with exposed organs/viscera. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in the dialogue.

The description was pulled down but many archived the image before it was.

Blizzard has announced that you can now stream their games via Facebook Live on PC, with Mac soon to follow

Back in June Blizzard announced a collaboration with Facebook which would allow players to easily stream any of the developer’s games through Facebook Live. Today, the feature is finally going live.

Starting today the live-streaming capability will be available in every Blizzard game in the Americas, Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, with a complete global rollout expected “soon.” It’s currently only available to PC gamers, but Mac support is also in the works. All you’ll need to do is connect your Battle.net account to Facebook, and then you can stream games like Overwatch or Hearthstone directly to your Facebook page.

This is extremely cool news and no doubt many will take advantage of it. I hope to see many cool streams on Facebook in the near future.

It has been revealed that Nintendo European Research & Development (NERD) will be working on the emulation to be used in the NES Classic edition.

The NES emulator and operating system was created by Paris-based Nintendo European Research and Development (NERD) from scratch. 

It is not the first foray into software emulation for NERD. The studio was already responsible for the DS emulation on Wii U, making it only the third team outside of Nintendo working on Virtual Console emulation (the others are NST for N64 emulation on Wii and M2 for GBA emulation on Wii U).

It’s still unclear whether this is purely a NERD product. With a “Made in Germany” on the controller, and a lack of Japanese release as well as the software side being handled by NERD, it seems at least plausible. NCL may have still been involved on the hardware side. NERD seems to have quite some leeway and is well respected at NCL. Right now, they are also working on software for NX.


NERD’s previous works include:
– development of “super-stable 3D”/face tracking system for New Nintendo 3DS
– enabling support for digital releases of Wii games on Wii U eShop
– video player for the Wii U internet browser

This is very interesting not just for the NES Classic Edition but also for the upcoming Nintendo NX and how it will emulate classic games. We will continue to update you on the details.

Just days after a Pokémon Go related driving fatality occurred in Japan, another death has resulted as the result of a driver distracted by the game.

When Pokemon Go launched in the West, it was the cause of a significant amount of questionable behavior and general mayhem. Thankfully, however, few people were seriously hurt. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said of people in Japan. Yesterday we reported that an elderly woman was killed after a farmer playing Pokemon Go accidentally drove into her, and now we have a second fatality to report in as many days.

According to Japanese news sources, a 29-year-old Vietnamese woman was struck while riding her bicycle by somebody playing Pokemon Go and driving. The accident happened earlier this month, but the woman died from her injuries on Thursday. The 26-year-old man who hit her explained how the incident happened:

“Just before, I had been playing Pokemon Go, and I was going to charge my phone, and when I looked away, that’s when it happened.”

This is becoming a rather serious issue and despite warnings from Niantic, this is continuing. I don’t know what the solution is, but people need to be more responsible when they play.
